Colonization of the intestine by putative pathogens was followed longitudinally in a cohort of 56 infants born during one calendar year in a rural Mexican village with faecal cultures taken every fortnight and every time a child had diarrhoea. The frequency of isolation of pathogens during episodes of diarrhoea was compared with that of matched controls(More)
Low-grade myofibroblastic sarcoma is a recently defined tumor that is part of the spectrum of malignant mesenchymal tumors, showing features of myofibroblastic differentiation. These tumors occur most commonly in the head and neck regions, especially in the tongue, and less frequently in the limbs, trunk, and abdominal/pelvic cavity. We describe a(More)
UNLABELLED The study was plan to assess platinum (Pt) contamination in the operating room and its exposure to health workers during heated intraperitoneal perioperative chemotherapy (HIPEC) using oxaliplatin. MATERIALS AND METHODS Pt was measured in urinary and environmental (air and surfaces) samples via inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry(More)
We are reporting a case of neurobrucellosis that was clinically and radiologically indistinguishable from a cerebral tumor. The histological diagnosis was granulomatous encephalitis. The diagnosis was established by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), detecting high levels of Ig G and Ig M Brucella antibodies in the serum and the cerebrospinal fluid.(More)
Fragile sites (FS) seem to play a role in genome instability and may be involved in karyotype evolution and chromosome aberrations. The majority of common fragile sites are induced by aphidicolin. Aphidicolin was used at two different concentrations (0.15 and 0.30 μM) to study the occurrence of FS in the cattle karyotype. In this paper, a map of aphidicolin(More)
We report the appearance of three cases of Leydig cell tumours on MRI. This imaging method showed well-defined and peripheral intratesticular tumours displaying marked and homogeneous enhancement when contrast medium was used. This latter finding was only observed in Leydig cell tumours when they were compared in a series of 104 patients with different(More)
Coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) is used to restore the blood flow in an ischemic area of myocardium using conduits bypassing a diseased coronary artery. Until now, conventional angiography has been the recognized technique to study patients with bypass grafts. Nowadays, non-invasive methods such as multi-detector CT (MDCT) emerge as reliable imaging(More)
