Neural crest cells are considered a key vertebrate feature that is studied intensively because of their relevance to development and evolution. Here we report the expression of Pax7 in the dorsal non-neural ectoderm and in the trunk neural crest of the early chick embryo. Pax7 is expressed in the trunk neural crest migrating along the ventral and(More)
The results of previous studies comparing Monocular Estimate Method (MEM) retinoscopy and Nott retinoscopy (Nott) have not been consistent. The purposes of this study were to compare MEM and Nott measures of accommodative response with each other and to provide data on the interexaminer reliability of MEM and Nott. Two examiners performed both MEM and Nott(More)
This study evaluated the effects of guided tissue regeneration (GTR) in the treatment of Class II furcation defects in beagle dogs. Gore-Tex periodontal material was used, and the amount of furcation fill and the surface area corresponding to new connective tissue attachment and new bone were evaluated. If present, epithelium was also evaluated. Six female(More)
Cerambyx welensii Küster is one of the greatest threats to Quercus suber L. and Quercus ilex L. in Spain. Efficient control methods for this species are currently being tested, and the use of traps baited with food-related products for their monitoring and control has been proposed. Cerambyx welensii adults prefer to colonize old or decayed trees, in which(More)
BACKGROUND The Nissen fundoplication procedure is the most widely used type of antireflux surgery. The results are not always as good as expected, and several modifications to the original technique have been proposed. Long-term effectiveness studies comparing different techniques of antireflux surgery are limited. Our group developed a new concept in(More)
Using immunostaining during early zebrafish embryogenesis, we report that the cranial and trunk neural crest expresses the paired box protein Pax7, thus revealing a novel neural crest marker in zebrafish. In the head, we show that Pax7 is broadly expressed in the cranial crest cells, which indicates that duplication of the paralogous group Pax3/7 at the(More)
INTRODUCTION Scintigraphy with technetium-sestamibi (MIBI) is the test of choice for localising adenomas in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT). In some studies it has emerged that the increase in sensitivity of this test could be associated with a decrease in the uptake of the radiotracer by the thyroid gland. The aim of this study is to(More)
IgA nephropathy (IgAN) is the most common glomerulonephritis in humans worldwide; its prevalence and prognosis vary according with geographical areas. The incidence is higher in adults under 30 years of age and in children, it occurs more frequently in patients between 3 and 10 years. Hematuria is the predominant manifestation at presentation of the disease(More)
We characterise type structurally the termination observational congruence of Abadi and Cardelli’s S8 calculus. Pitts’ operational reasoning approach for polymorphic lambda calculi is enhanced with subtyping and primitive covariant object types. Labelling each object with a bound ordinal of terminating method invocations and regarding(More)
BACKGROUND Mild to moderate musculoskeletal trauma is a common cause for an emergency room visit, and frequent pain is one of the cardinal symptoms of consultation. The objective of this study is to assess the perception of a single subcutaneous dose of 50 mg tramadol for pain management in patients with mild to moderate musculoskeletal trauma, likewise to(More)
