OBJECTIVE We compared the levels of biomarkers of oxidative stress before and after a fat overload in three groups. MATERIALS AND METHODS 17 controls and two groups with hypertriglyceridemia: 43 without the metabolic syndrome (TG-non-MS) and 29 with the metabolic syndrome (TG-MS). All subjects underwent a 60 g fat overload. Baseline measurements included(More)
The low-grade inflammation observed in obesity has been associated with a high-fat diet, though this relation is not fully understood. Bacterial endotoxin, produced by gut microbiota, may be the linking factor. However, this has not been confirmed in obese patients. To study the relationship between a high-fat diet and bacterial endotoxin, we analyzed(More)
BACKGROUND Obesity is very often accompanied by other diseases, with the most common type 2 diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular complications. Bariatric surgery is the most effective strategy for treating morbidly obese patients. We evaluated the metabolic changes that occur in the early stage after 2 types of bariatric surgery, biliopancreatic diversion(More)

Idiopathic hypereosinophilic syndrome (HES) is a rare disorder characterized by peripheral eosinophilia exceeding 1500/mm3, a chronic course, absence of secondary causes, and signs and symptoms of eosinophil-mediated tissue injury. One of the best-characterized forms of HES is the one associated with FIP1L1-PDGFRA gene rearrangement, which was recently(More)
