During the first 6 years of the Program of Genetic Counselling in Cancer of Valencia (eastern Spain), 310 mutations (155 in BRCA1 and 155 in BRCA2) in 1,763 hereditary breast (BC) and ovarian cancer (OC) families were identified. Of the mutations found 105 were distinct (53 in BRCA1 and 52 in BRCA2), eight new and 37 recurrent. Two of the novel mutations(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The widespread use of aspirin requires clarification of the aspirin resistance phenomenon. Most studies on this field are focused on patients which may affect the action of aspirin. METHODS We evaluated the biological efficacy of aspirin in healthy subjects. RESULTS Agonist-induced platelet aggregation was fully abrogated by 100(More)
BACKGROUND Fragile X syndrome is associated with low ovarian reserve and poor ovarian response. The aim of this study was to investigate whether CGG repeats on the fragile X mental retardation 1 (FMR1) gene have predictive value for ovarian response to stimulation with gonadotrophins and for clinical outcome in our oocyte donation program. METHODS Oocyte(More)
Transplantation of resected hepatic fragments, with the attendant vascular and biliary tract reconstruction, presents difficulties. We have studied the intraparenchymal vascular division in the pig with a view to performing partial hepatectomies with the greastest possible anatomical support. Forty-six molds of the various vascular territories were obtained(More)
A new nematode species, Spirura mexicana n. sp., is described from specimens recovered from the esophageal mucosa of the Parnell's mustached bat Pteronotus parnellii , Davy's naked-backed bat Pteronotus davyi, Wagner's mustached bat Pteronotus personatus, and the ghost-faced bat Mormoops megalophylla in the State of Morelos, Mexico. This nematode is(More)
Studies of morphometric variation make it possible to delimit species and geographic intraspecific variation, mainly in species with wide distribution ranges. In the Neotropical otter, Lontra longicaudis, variation in the shape of the rhinarium of three potential subspecies has been described but it is not known whether there is a pattern to the(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The modulation by flavonoids of platelet responses induced by thrombin has been little investigated, and the antiplatelet activity, as well as possible inhibitory mechanisms of these compounds on thrombin signalling, has not yet been elucidated. We explored whether flavonoids affect platelet signalling pathways triggered by thrombin(More)
BACKGROUND Dietary flavonoids are known for their antiplatelet activity resulting in cardiovascular protection, although the specific mechanisms by which this inhibition occurs has not been fully established. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to investigate the interaction of nine flavonoids representative of various chemical classes, with platelet(More)
BACKGROUND Genome-wide association studies are currently identifying new loci with potential roles in thrombosis and hemostasis: these loci include novel polymorphisms associated with platelet function traits and count. However, no genome-wide study performed on children has been reported to date, in spite of the potential that these subjects have in(More)
AIMS Flavonoids may affect platelet function by several mechanisms, including antagonism of TxA(2) receptors (TP). These TP are present in many tissues and modulate different signalling cascades. We explored whether flavonoids affect platelet TP signalling, and if they bind to TP expressed in other cell types. METHODS Platelets were treated with(More)
