Our aim was to develop a reproducible and simple radiological scoring system for ankylosing spondylitis (AS) to use in cross sectional and prospective studies. Regarding validation of the BASRI (Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Radiology Index), radiographs of 470 patients with AS were scored using the New York criteria for the sacroiliac joints. The lumbar and(More)

Peters' anomaly (PA) is a congenital defect of the anterior chamber of the eye. We identified a family in which an apparently balanced chromosomal translocation t(1;7) (q41;p21) was associated with PA. Based on this observation, detailed molecular characterizations of the breakpoint regions and candidate genes were carried out. A candidate gene from each(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate how much exercise patients with ankylosing spondylitis perform on a regular basis, to analyze demographic and clinical variables that might influence adherence to exercise, and to determine the effect of exercise on disease activity and function. METHODS We analyzed 4282 patients who completed a self-administered questionnaire(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Evidence suggests that tyrosine-kinase inhibitors may attenuate lung inflammation and fibrosis in experimental acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). We hypothesized that dasatinib, a tyrosine-kinase inhibitor, might act differently depending on the ARDS etiology and the dose. METHODS C57/BL6 mice were divided to be pre-treated with(More)
The annual and life-cycle mercury bioaccumulation pattern in selected tissues of the economically relevant Elasmobranchii species Scyliorhinus canicula was studied, and the risks associated with its consumption evaluated. Preferential mercury bioaccumulation occurred in muscle tissue, and followed the order muscle>heart>liver>gills>pancreas. Total mercury(More)
We present the case of a 40-year-old woman with refractory epilepsy since aged 18, who was submitted to video-EEG monitoring with intracerebral depth electrodes. The clinical history and examination, magnetic resonance image (MRI), video-EEG and neuropsychological study did not allow the determination of the cerebral onset of epileptic seizures. Depth(More)
