Parkinson's disease (PD) is diagnosed when striatal dopamine (DA) loss exceeds a certain threshold and the cardinal motor features become apparent. The presymptomatic compensatory mechanisms underlying the lack of motor manifestations despite progressive striatal depletion are not well understood. Most animal models of PD involve the induction of a severe(More)
Cervical human papillomavirus (HPV+) infection is associated with an increased risk of cervical dysplasia. Although the frequency of HPV+ in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) has been investigated in some races its prevalence in Hispanic women is still unknown. This cross-sectional study evaluated the prevalence of cervical HPV+ in Mexican women with SLE(More)
This article has been accepted for publication in a future issue of this journal, but has not been fully edited. Content may change prior to final publication. Abstract The JPEG2000 image coding system was created with the intention of superseding the original JPEG standard, using a novel wavelet-based method. The main advantage of JPEG2000 is the(More)
Background: There are no studies assesing whether patients with idiopathic anaphylaxis are a heterogenous population Objective: A study has been carried out to assess whether clinical and functional differences (mast cell releasability) exist between two sub-types of Idiopathic Anaphylaxis (Generalized Idiopathic Anaphylaxis -IA-Gand Idiopathic Anaphylaxis(More)
Obese women have lower pregnancy rates than normal-weight women undergoing assisted reproductive treatment. We conducted a pilot study to evaluate whether a 12-week diet and exercise intervention before an IVF cycle would influence pregnancy rates in obese women. Forty-one patients were enrolled in this study. They were randomly allocated to two groups: an(More)
Older patients with diabetes have a high risk of vascular complications. They have an increase of approximately 3 times for developing stroke compared with subjects without diabetes. In addition, up to 75-80% of deaths in diabetic patients are associated with major cardiovascular events including stroke. The risk of stroke is high within 5 years of(More)
This work proposes a strategy for browsing interactively sequences of high resolution JPEG 2000 remote images. These sequences can be displayed in any order (forward and backward) and following any play/timing pattern. In order to increase the quality of the reconstructions where the retrieved images are only known at the moment of the visualization, this(More)
Factor VIII and von Willebrand factor proteins were evaluated in 115 patients having the chronic phase of the Toxic Epidemic Syndrome (TES), a new multisystemic disease probably caused by the ingestion of denatured rapeseed oil, and in 50 control volunteers. Higher circulating levels of factor VIII procoagulant activity (VIII:C) (158 +/- 58.4 U/dl), von(More)
