The enteric-coated mycophenolate sodium (EC-MPS) is a new formulation of mycophenolic acid with a gastro-resistant enteric coating, which releases the drug in the intestine, reducing the incidence of the gastrointestinal (GI) adverse effects. The present work provided a summary of 20 patients with liver transplantation and more than a 1 year of treatment(More)
Recent studies have demonstrated that erythropoietin (EPO) and its analogs induce cytoprotective effects on many nonerythroid cells. In this study, we examined whether darbepoetin-α might prevent glomerular lesions in the Thy-1.1 model of glomerulonephritis (Thy-1-GN). GN was induced in Wistar rats by a single injection of monoclonal anti-Thy-1.1 antibody.(More)
The biceps brachii tendon arises directly from the superior glenoid labrum with the remainder usually attached to the supraglenoid tubercle. Although some cases of anomalous origin of this tendon have been described, these anomalies are rarely encountered in daily practice. We report a patient with a capsular origin of the LHBT as a congenital anomaly and(More)
INTRODUCTION Diagnosis of Gilbert's disease often involves unnecessary testing and patient anxiety. Rifampin test can support the diagnosis; it has been described in short series and lacks standardization in dose, collection times, result presentation and interpretation. Our objective was to compare the response to oral rifampin in a series of patients with(More)
The clinical usefulness of quantitative plasma polymorphonuclear elastase (PMN-elastase) determinations as prognostic markers of adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) in polytraumatized patients was analyzed. PMN-elastase and C-reactive protein (CRP) levels were determined in 55 polytraumatized patients admitted into the Intensive Care Unit. Eight(More)
