The present study was performed to compare renal injury induced by high acute doses of both the nonacetylated salicylate, salsalate (SSA) and the acetylated salicylate, aspirin (ASA). As a marker of renal injury, urinary excretion of N-acetyl-beta-D-glucosaminidase (NAG) and alanine aminopeptidase (AAP) were measured after oral administration of 600 mg/kg(More)
1. M. butyricum administration to rats induces arthritis and impairment in hepatic cytochrome P-450 activity. 2. This work was performed to verify if M. butyricum administrated to mice produces similar effects on cytochrome P-450 hepatic without involvement of articular lesions. 3. We also studied the role of arachidonate metabolites in the genesis and(More)
Juvenile polyposis syndrome (JPS) is an infrequent autosomal dominant hereditary predisposition to the occurrence of hamartomatous polyps in the colon and rectum. We describe the case of a 12-year-old boy with JPS associated with an abdominal tumor. Histological sections of the abdominal tumor showed components of adenocarcinoma, osteosarcoma, and(More)
We have evaluated the new ELISA test (ANDA-Tb) for the serological diagnosis of tuberculosis in serum samples from 343 individuals: 160 were from blood donors, 152 from patients with nontuberculous diseases, most of them respiratory, and 31 from tuberculous patients diagnosed by positive culture. Using a cutoff value in 350 serounits we had a positive(More)
Serum sulfhydryl group concentration and protein fraction were determined in adjuvant arthritic rats, during six weeks. Significantly reduced sulfhydryl levels were found in arthritic rats from day 3 and these values remained decreased throughout the study period. Good correlation exists between serum sulfhydryl alterations and degree of inflammation(More)
In the present study we have determined if renal damage occurs with adjuvant arthritis (AA). As a sensitive indicator of renal injury in tubular cells, urinary N-acetyl-beta-D-glucosaminidase (NAG) was measured at predetermined times after arthritis induction. Urinary protein, sodium and potassium excretion were also evaluated. NAG levels in arthritic(More)
During the 32 months between October 1984 and May 1987 there were 72,800 admissions in our center; 31,523 blood cultures were undertaken and in 3,831 of them (11.5%) at least one significant organism was recovered; 6.7% of blood cultures yielded anaerobic bacteria, and 3.1% Bacteroides spp. In the 1,478 instances of bacteremia recorded during that period,(More)
