INTRODUCTION Generally, high-grade gliomas and head and neck tumors have decreased loco-regional blood flow resulting in reduced delivery of chemotherapy and oxygen, as well as an increases in radiation resistance to radiotherapy. The aim of this study was to analyze the effect of cervical spinal cord electrical stimulation (cSCS) on cerebral blood flow in(More)
A prospective descriptive survey was applied to 291 children of three different nurseries in Guadalajara, México. Medical history was done to the suspicious ones, from those, only 11 were positive (3.78%). The presumptive diagnosis of food allergy was based on the patient's history, food challenges and food elimination. The most frequent age of presentation(More)
Tigecycline resistance has been attributed to ramA overexpression and subsequent acrA upregulation. The ramA locus, originally identified in Klebsiella pneumoniae, has homologues in Enterobacter and Salmonella spp. In this study, we identify in silico that the ramR binding site is also present in Citrobacter spp. and that Enterobacter, Citrobacter and(More)
A mentally retarded girl with a 46,XX/47, XX+r(1) (p11q22q22p11)/47, XX+r(1) (p11q22) fra(1) (p31) fra(1) (p11) fra(1) (q22) karyotype who inherited the fragile sites from the normal mother was studied. The conicidence of fra(1) (p11) and fra(1) (q22) with the ring chromosome breakpoints strongly suggests a cause-effect relationship. This finding agrees(More)
We report a boy with Down syndrome and leukemia who acquired uniparental isodisomy of chromosome 7q as a secondary chromosomal change during recurrence of the disease. His karyotype before therapy was 46,XY,der(1)t(1;1)(p36;q32),-7,+21c/46,idem,del(9)(p22), whereas at recurrence it was 46,XY,der(1)t(1;1)(p36;q32,-7,der(7)(qter-->p22 through(More)
Two cases of surgical resection of symptomatic pericardial cysts are reported. Pathological aspects, diagnostic methods and alternatives of management in these benign lesions are discussed. Other excised cases are also mentioned. The authors recommend excision of these cysts in all patients with a low risk in order to: 1) eliminate the tumour mass, 2)(More)
Solid malignant tumors are more highly cellular than benign lesions and hence have a restricted diffusion of water molecules. To evaluate whether diffusion-weighted MR imaging (DWI) can differentiate between benign and malignant pediatric abdominal tumors. We retrospectively analyzed DWI scans of 68 consecutive children with 39 benign and 34 malignant(More)
AIM To investigate whether the serum levels of interleukin-1beta, 6, 8, tumour necrosis factor-alpha and the soluble receptor of IL-2 are useful in the diagnosis of neonatal sepsis, and whether their diagnostic power is increased when in combination with classical markers such as C-reactive protein and white blood cell count. METHODS Blood samples were(More)
Nine Adenovirus (Ad) strains isolated in Cuba, from 128 nasopharingeal swab specimens of children below five years old, with acute respiratory diseases, during 1996 and 1997, were studied by restriction enzyme analysis of genomic DNA with two endonucleases BamH I and Sma I. All different fragment patterns were compared with the respective prototypes. The(More)
Two sisters presented with olivopontocerebellar atrophy, neuronal loss in the substantia nigra, intranuclear ubiquitin-, ataxin-2-positive inclusions in neurons, and severe demyelination and axon loss of the cerebral white matter with no accompanying inflammatory pathology. The genetic study demonstrated a 22/36 CAG triplet expansion in the SCA2 gene in one(More)
