We report here the isolation of three members of a new family of antimicrobial peptides from the hemolymph of shrimps Penaeus vannamei in which immune response has not been experimentally induced. The three molecules display antimicrobial activity against fungi and bacteria with a predominant activity against Gram-positive bacteria. The complete sequences(More)
BACKGROUND Primary hepatic non-Hodgkin lymphoma (PHL) is a rare and difficult to diagnose lymphoproliferative disorder of unknown etiology. It is believed that the prognosis in affected patients is dismal, consisting of early recurrence and short survival. METHODS A retrospective cohort review of patients with PHL diagnosed between 1974 and 1995 at a(More)
BACKGROUND The electronic Schizophrenia Treatment Adherence Registry (e-STAR) is a prospective, observational study of patients with schizophrenia designed to evaluate long-term treatment outcomes in routine clinical practice. METHODS Parameters were assessed at baseline and at 3 month intervals for 2 years in patients initiated on risperidone long-acting(More)
Penaeidins are members of a new family of antimicrobial peptides isolated from a crustacean, which present both Gram-positive antibacterial and antifungal activities. We have studied the localization of synthesis and storage of penaeidins in the shrimp Penaeus vannamei. The distribution of penaeidin transcripts and peptides in various tissues reveals that(More)
This study was designed to embrace three areas: a) serologic and radiologic diagnosis and surgical treatment of hydatidosis in an asymptomatic human population, b) animal diagnosis and the treatment of dogs, and c) evaluation of extent of knowledge and performance of educational interventions among rural families and health, livestock, and education(More)
Two thousand five hundred forty male patients with cancer of larynx, pharynx, and mouth were examined in the same hospital between 1975 and 1982. Different sites were compared according to alcohol and tobacco consumption: oropharynx, hypopharynx, larynx supraglottis, larynxglottis, epilarynx, lip, tongue-tip, and tongue lateral border, other tongue sites,(More)
One hundred thirty-eight patients, who were followed for a minimum of 5 years, had either surgery and postoperative radiotherapy (48 patients) or radiotherapy only (90 patients) for metastatic epidermoid carcinoma in cervical nodes from an unknown head and neck primary. All received radiotherapy to the presumed occult sites. Forty-five percent presented(More)
Fifty actinomycete strains isolated from lignocellulosic substrates were examined for the ability to remove the color from a paper mill effluent obtained after semichemical alkaline pulping of wheat straw. Streptomyces sp. strains UAH 15, UAH 23, UAH 30, and UAH 51 were selected for their ability to decolorize the effluent in a liquid medium containing 1%(More)
PURPOSE Investigators disagree on whether follicular large cell lymphoma (FLCL) behaves like other follicular lymphomas, with no plateau in the survival curve, or as a more aggressive but potentially curable lymphoma. We reported in 1984 results for 62 FLCL patients treated at our institution; the current report updates those results. PATIENTS AND METHODS(More)
In most parts of the peripheral nervous system galanin is expressed at very low levels. To further understand the functional role of galanin, a mouse overexpressing galanin under the platelet-derived growth factor-B was generated, and high levels of galanin expression were observed in several peripheral tissues and spinal cord. Thus, a large proportion of(More)
