OBJECTIVE To test the hypothesis that prone position ventilation, nitric oxide, and almitrine bismesylate, each acting by a different mechanism to improve arterial oxygenation, could exert additive beneficial effects when used in combination in patients with severe acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). DESIGN Prospective, nonrandomized,(More)
The current study was designed to compare the immunogenic and immunoprophylactic properties of native (nFh12) and recombinant (rFh15) antigens from Fasciola hepatica in rabbits infected with the fluke. Levels of specific anti-nFh12 and anti-rFh15 antibodies were significantly higher in the rabbits vaccinated twice compared with non-vaccinated infection(More)
The objective of this study was to investigate the feasibility of incorporating mango and acerola pulps into a biodegradable matrix as a source of polyphenols, carotenoids, and other antioxidant compounds. We also sought to evaluate the efficacy of mango and acerola pulps as antioxidants in film-forming dispersions using a response surface methodology(More)
We investigated the effect of a glutamine-enriched enteral diet on intestinal permeability and infectious morbidity and mortality in critically ill patients who developed systemic inflammatory response syndrome after an acute event. Eleven intensive care units in tertiary-care hospitals participated in a prospective, randomized, single blind, multicenter(More)
Faecal Escherichia coli isolates from suckling (n = 503) and weaning (n = 450) piglets with and without diarrhoea from 10 farms in Mexico were examined for identification and prevalence of virulence genes. E. coli isolates were tested further for enterotoxin (LT, STa, STb, Stx1, Stx2 and EAST1), fimbrial (F4, F5, F6, F17, F18 and F41) and eae adhesin genes(More)
Chagas disease, also known as American trypanosomiasis, is caused by the hemoflagellate protozoan Trypanosoma cruzi which is transmitted by blood-sucking triatomine bugs (Hemiptera: Reduviidae; Triatominae). The disease is endemic to south Texas, but exists almost exclusively as a zoonosis. Chagas disease has proven to be a serious public health threat to(More)
During the last few years, Convolutional Neural Networks are slowly but surely becoming the default method solve many computer vision related problems. This is mainly due to the continuous success that they have achieved when applied to certain tasks such as image, speech, or object recognition. Despite all the efforts, object class recognition methods(More)
BACKGROUND No studies on continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) have analyzed nutritional status in children. The objective of this study was to assess the association between mortality and nutritional status of children receiving CRRT. METHODS Prospective observational study to analyze the nutritional status of children receiving CRRT and its(More)
Suppression of rapid eye movement sleep (REMS) in developing animals has both anatomical and physiological consequences. We have recently shown that initiating REMS deprivation (REMSD) prior to the end of the critical period in young rats delays termination of the critical period (CP) in visual cortex, and, consequently, the synaptic plasticity mechanisms(More)
