A review of the literature revealed that changes in the articular eminence associated with changes in the dentition were usually overlooked in most reports. An attempt was made to determine whether changes in attrition and loss of teeth would correlate with a change (decreased angulation) in the articular eminence. The population consisted of 103 adult(More)
Predisposition to MS is associated with the HLA-DR2 antigen in white patients. The authors investigated the genetic factors behind the increasing frequency of MS in the Mexican population. HLA-DR and DQ were analyzed in 17 patients with MS, 15 of their first-degree relatives, and 99 healthy ethnically matched controls. DR2 or DR3 was found in 15 of 17(More)
Dietary nitrate (NO3 −) supplementation reduces the O2 cost of fixed-workload tasks performed in temperate environments but has not been examined in the heat. If this effect were retained it could reduce heatstroke risk in military personnel that are deployed for desert combat. Nine men completed three 45 min loaded battle marches at a standard cadence(More)
Prohormone supplements (PS) are recognized not to impart anabolic or ergogenic effects in men, but the research supporting these conclusions is dated. The Anabolic Steroid Control Act was amended in 2004 to classify androstenedione and 17 additional anabolic compounds as controlled substances. The viability of PS that entered the market after that time have(More)
The causes of internal conflicts are not easy to identify, and in order to understand its dynamics it is important to determine the factors that influence its persistence. The appropriation of economic resources has been identified as a cause of the conflict; however, asset appropriation may not be the main motivation for armed groups. On the contrary, it(More)
Myasthenia gravis is an autoimmune, heterogeneous disorder, characterized by the presence of antibodies against acetylcholine receptors at the neuromuscular junction. There is a strong evidence that an individual's genetic composition is an important predisposing factor for the development of the disease. To correlate HLA class II genotypes with thymic(More)
BACKGROUND Surgery for portal hypertension has a low rebleeding rate. Patients that rebleed can be grossly divided into those who die as a consequence of the episode, those who don't die but develop liver failure (remaining as Child-Pugh C) and those who, in spite of the bleeding episode, retain good liver function (Child-Pugh A or B). At our hospital, the(More)
