Current literature addresses the delay between blood culture collection and final identification; however, it fails to delineate differences among species. The purpose of this study was to quantify the time to yeast detection and identification relative to blood(More)
This communication describes the general biochemical properties and some immunological characteristics of the venom from the Peruvian scorpion Hadruroides lunatus, which is the most medically relevant species in Peru. The soluble venom of this scorpion is toxic to mice, the LD₅₀ determined was 0.1 mg/kg and 21.55 mg/kg when the venom was injected(More)

Integrins interact with many determinants of cellular phenotypes and play roles in controlling the development, structural integrity, and function of every type of tissue. Despite their(More)
We report on 3 Spanish sibs with the Bartsocas-Papas syndrome. This appears to be the seventh reported family; all but one of them are of Mediterranean origin. We propose that a generalized vascular disruption is the most likely pathogenetic mechanism for the anomalies found in this syndrome.
