After the concept of retro-orbicularis oculi fat had been developed, the authors focused in particular on the anatomic entity named suborbicularis oculi fat, consisting of the supraperiosteal submuscular fat excess situated over the zygoma. Its correction is demonstrated as well as its anatomic description and the fact that it contributes to the aesthetic(More)
Information on malaria-associated anemia in adult patients is scarce in South American populations. From 2004 to 2006, malaria patients 18 to 45 years of age were recruited in a descriptive cross-sectional study from two different towns: Manaus, in the Brazilian Amazon (120 patients) where Plasmodium falciparum incidence is lower ( approximately 20%), and(More)
BACKGROUND Allogeneic stem cell transplantation is the only curative option for patients with hereditary bone marrow failure syndromes. Umbilical cord blood is an alternative source of stem cells for allogeneic transplantation. DESIGN AND METHODS This multicenter, retrospective study is based on data reported to the Eurocord Registry about patients with(More)
To determine the validity of endogenous creatinine clearance as a measure of glomerular filtration rate in patients with renal disease 308 simultaneous determinations of inulin clearance and endogenous creatinine clearance were reviewed and analysed. The ratio of creatinine clearance/inulin clearance increased progressively with the decline in inulin(More)
We assessed the safety, tolerability, and immunogenicity of a mixture of three synthetic peptides derived from the Plasmodium vivax circumsporozoite protein formulated in Montanide ISA 720 or Montanide ISA 51. Forty healthy malaria-naive volunteers were allocated to five experimental groups (A-E): four groups (A-D) were immunized intramuscularly with 50 and(More)
Several robotic platforms were recently developed aimed at improving the locomotion capacity of people with gait impairment. Most of these gait trainers are limited to treadmill training, which is not a motivating condition for children with cerebral palsy (CP). This paper presents a pilot study done with two children with spastic CP, who trained with a new(More)
