OBJECTIVE Clinical validation of the Spanish version of the Mississippi Aphasia Screening Test (MASTsp) as a screening test for language disorders in patients who have suffered a stroke. MATERIAL AND METHODS A total of 29 patients who had suffered a stroke and had aphasia after a left hemispheric lesion were evaluated with the MASTsp, the Boston(More)
OBJECTIVES Escherichia coli belonging to clonal group ST131 has emerged as a significant contributor to infection caused by antibiotic-resistant E. coli worldwide. We investigated the risk factors for infections caused by ST131 E. coli and their clinical implications. METHODS One thousand and seventy-seven E. coli isolates were screened for ST131 by(More)
BACKGROUND Chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients show evidence of chronic inflammation with mononuclear cell activation which is mainly caused by uraemia itself and is exacerbated by haemodialysis. Small fragments of bacterial DNA (DNAb) are ubiquitous contaminants, which are capable of passing through dialyser membranes causing the stimulation of cells of(More)
Serum antibody detection tests and a urine antigen detection technique were compared in samples from 116 patients epidemiologically characterized as belonging to a legionellosis outbreak. Sera were tested by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISAs) for immunoglobulin M (IgM) and IgG plus IgM and by immunofluorescent assays (IFAs) for IgG, IgM, IgA, and(More)
Acquired brain injury (ABI) is a complex disease that involves loss of brain functions related to cognitive and motor capabilities and that can produce unilateral spatial neglect (USN). The heterogeneity of the symptoms of these disorders causes a lack of consensus on suitable tools for evaluation and treatment. Recently, several studies have initiated the(More)
Self-awareness deficits can manifest as a consequence of acquired brain injury decreasing the motivation and the adherence to the treatment. We present a multitouch system that promotes the role-playing and the self-assessment strategies and challenges the participants in a competitive context. This paper presents an initial clinical trial to study the(More)
INTRODUCTION The worldwide spread of antimicrobial resistance is now recognised as a global public health threat. Owing to the geographical heterogeneity, complexity and continuously evolving dynamics of resistant organisms and genes, surveillance is a key tool for understanding, measuring and informing actions in the fight against this problem. To date(More)
Unilateral spatial neglect is one of the most common and disabling impairments of stroke. The assessment of this deficit is carried out with paper and pencil tasks that can lack correspondence to everyday activities. Virtual reality can recreate realistic but safe environments that allow the therapists to study how the patients would react in real life(More)
