OBJECTIVES To confirm the analytical performance of the Dimension Vista LOCI troponin I assay (cTnI). DESIGN AND METHOD Limit of blank (LoB), limit of detection (LoD), limit of quantitation (LoQ) with a 10% coefficient of variation (CV), linearity, precision, method comparison, and 99th percentile upper reference limits (URL) were analyzed. Endogenous(More)
The limitations of current basal insulin preparations include concerns related to their pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic properties, hypoglycaemia, weight gain, and perception of management complexity, including rigid dosing schedules. Insulin degludec (IDeg) is a novel basal insulin with improved pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic properties compared(More)
INTRODUCTION There are at least six subtypes of Maturity Onset Diabetes of the Young (MODY) with distinctive genetic causes. MODY 3 is caused by mutations in HNF1A gene, an insulin transcription factor, so mutations in this gene are associated with impaired insulin secretion. MODY 3 prevalence differs according to the population analyzed, but it is one of(More)
BACKGROUND Borg Rating of Perceived Exertion Scale (RPE) is a psychophysiological measurements that translates physical stimuli to a psychological construct, which is perceived exertion. Its use is simple and it represents the effort perception. Each number of the scale is associated with a heart rate or percentage of maximal oxygen consumption (VO2max),(More)
Diabetes mellitus is associated with vascular complications and high rates of morbidity and mortality. Timely insulin therapy, intensified when necessary, represent appropriate measures to prevent or delay the onset of complications. However, the incidence of hypoglycemia and difficulties in treatment adherence represent barriers to achieve therapeutic(More)
Maturity onset diabetes of the young (MODY) is caused by mutations in at least six different genes, including the glucokinase gene (MODY 2) and genes encoding the tissue-specific transcription factors (MODY 1 and MODY 3–6). To determine the presence of mutations in MODY 2 in four members of a family who have the clinical characteristics of MODY, we(More)
Between 1980 and 1985, 287 old torn menisci were sutured in 280 patients via arthrotomy in the Orthopaedic University departments of Zurich and Munich. In 95% of the patients (272 meniscus lesions), there was a follow-up between 6 months and 5.5 years postoperatively using questionnaires (13%), clinical examination alone (13%), clinical examination and(More)
Objectives: To evaluate the efficacy of sentinel node biopsy (SNB) in oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC). Design: A prospective study of a cohort of 25 consecutive patients with OSCC anatomopathological confirmation through biopsy, without oncological pre-treatment, in clinical stage T1-T4N0, of these 25 patients 14 were T1-T2N0. The absence of regional(More)
