Fifty-four packages (each one belonging to a different lot) of vacuum-packed cold-smoked salmon (30) and trout (24) produced by six Spanish smokehouses were obtained at retail level after 3 weeks storage at 2+/-1 degrees C. Sensorial, chemical, physicochemical and microbiological characteristics were examined. Overall, pH, a(w), salt content in water phase,(More)
Two hundred and ninety-four non-transfused prostitutes from Spain, who denied intravenous drug abuse, were tested for hepatitis C virus (HCV) antibodies. Seventeen (5.78 %) of them were seropositive. Both in univariate and correspondence analyses, serological results for hepatitis C were associated with the HIV-1 serostatus (p<0.001), number of sex partners(More)
The emergence of new telematic applications and services is creating significant growth in the traffic carried over the optical transport network (OTN). One potential cost-effective approach for satisfying these demands consists in applying inverse-multiplexing techniques, such as virtual concatenation (VCAT). In this context, efficient load balancing can(More)
The use of intravenous amiodarone was assessed during 23 episodes of paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia in 15 children aged 9 days to 11 years. Five of the fifteen patients had congenital structural heart disease, and three had Wolf-Parkinson-White syndrome. Tachyarrhythmias were returned to sinus rhythm during 20 of the 23 episodes (87%). No major(More)
In order to assess the impact of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) on the frequency and etiology of fever of unknown origin in HIV-infected patients, a retrospective study was performed on cases of fever of unknown origin observed from January 1997 to December 1999 in seven hospitals in five cities in Andalusia, Spain. During the period(More)
Next-generation transport network nodes integrate optical switching of coarse-grained wavelength channels with electrical switching of fine-grained optical channel data units (ODUs). This node design aims at a compromise between improving the wavelength channel fill ratio and maximizing the optical bypass of full or near-full wavelength channels, thereby(More)
Two cases of mucormycosis in patients with exclusively renal involvement and advanced HIV infection are reported. In both cases the clinical course was relatively benign; in one case a tendency towards regression with no specific treatment was observed, and in the other case the infection resolved after nephrectomy and antifungal therapy. Renal mucormycosis(More)
We analysed the efficacy and safety of switching from a regimen based on nonnucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NNRTI) or integrase inhibitors (INI) to ABC/3TC + RPV in virologically suppressed HIV-infected patients. This multicentre, retrospective study comprised asymptomatic HIV-infected patients who switched from 2 NRTI + NNRTI or 2 NRTI + INI(More)
In view of the current prospects in wired and wireless access networks, it is becoming increasingly important to address potential convergence issues between both types of access networks. Therefore, this paper analyzes compatibility aspects of supporting radio signals over a passive optical infrastructure, which must be accounted for to enable the(More)
