To investigate the levels of endothelin-1 (ET-1), homocysteine (Hcy), vitamins A, E, B12 and folic acid in plasma of patients with different types of glaucoma: primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) and normotensive glaucoma (NTG). Patients were classified into 3 groups: group POAG comprised 48 patients, group NTG comprised 15 patients, and control group that(More)
Circulating tumor cell (CTC) enumeration is important clinically for identifying prognostic and predictive factors in patients with solid cancers. The CellSearch device (Veridex) is an immunomagnetic CTC selection and enumeration system used in clinical practice. The ImageStream (Amnis) combines the strengths of flow cytometry and fluorescent microscopy in(More)
laque microbiota was 4.7 × 106 CFU/mL (range 6.5 × 105 to .8 ×107 CFU/mL) and the median viable count of Veillonella spp. as 1.3 × 105 CFU/mL (range <10 CFU/mL to 5.8 × 106 CFU/mL). The roportion of the cultivable plaque microbiota that comprised Veilonella spp. ranged from <0.001% in two subjects to a maximum of 1.6%, with a median of 4.2%. In total, 158(More)
BACKGROUND The ε4 allele of Apolipoprotein E is involved in lipid metabolism. Oxidative stress produces an increase in lipid peroxidation that has been implicated in the pathogenic cascade in Alzheimer's disease. This study estimated the effect of the ε4 allele, malondialdehyde and lipid levels on the risk for Alzheimer's disease. METHODS A total of 41(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to quantify blood cells and inflammatory markers, involved in the healing process, in exudates from wounds in different healing phases, to assess these markers in order to identify the inflammatory phase of the wounds. METHOD Patients who presented with postsurgical wounds, which closed by first and second intention,(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study is to compare the effect of different systems for eliminating duplicates in order to optimize the calculation of the prevalence of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection. METHODS We compare the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI) criterion, time criteria and the criterion(More)
Colorectal carcinoma is a common cause of cancer. Adjuvant treatments include: 5-fluorouracil administered together with folinic acid, or more recently, oral fluoropyrimidines such as capecitabine, in combination with oxaliplatin or irinotecan. Metastatic colorectal cancer patients can benefit from other additional treatments such as cetuximab or(More)
