BACKGROUND During acute human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection, high viral loads and the induction of host immune responses typically coincide with the onset of clinical symptoms. However, clinically severe presentations during acute HIV type 1 (HIV-1) infection, including AIDS-defining symptoms, are unusual. METHODS Virus isolates were tested for(More)
[3H]Dihydroergocryptine ([3H]DHE) binding to several brain regions was studied in male and female rats, the latter in two different endocrinological states (estrous and diestrous-1). males showed higher [3H]DHE binding than females in hypothalamus, hippocampus and olfactory bulb, while females showed higher levels than males in spinal cord and visual(More)
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is one of the most disabling diseases in young people, but the interrelation between disability and quality of life is poorly understood. As individual correlations between disability and the perspective of the patient may be weak in individual subjects, the purpose of our work was to analyze and correlate quality of life with(More)
BACKGROUND The objectives of the study were to develop web-based Spanish and Catalan versions of the EQ-5D-Y, and to compare scores and psychometric properties with the paper version. METHODS Web-based and paper versions of EQ-5D-Y were included in a cross-sectional study in Palafolls (Barcelona), Spain and administered to students (n = 923) aged 8 to 18(More)

Membranes were obtained from the pituitary gland and 13 cerebral regions of male rats and of females during two endocrinological states (estrous and diestrous-1), and assayed for alpha 1-receptor binding, using [3H]prazosin. At two [3H]prazosin concentrations, one near its binding dissociation constant and the other at a value at which the plateau was(More)
