On the other hand, the effect of cerebral stroke on sleep and breathing has not been well defined. The diffuse cerebral symptoms such as cognitive deficits,(More)
The objectives of this study were the determination of CA 125 in the cytosol of healthy and carcinomatous ovarian tissue by immunoanalysis, analysis of its correlation with the biological characteristics of ovarian carcinoma, determination of serum CA 125 levels, and study of the prognostic value of the marker in cytosol. The levels of the marker depend not(More)
To determine whether the osteopenia of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is due to reduction of trabecular bone mass (TBV) and/or cortical width (CW), we evaluated these parameters by bone histomorphometry; we also measured the calciotropic hormones parathormone(PTH) and calcitonin (CT), vitamin D [25(OH)D] and the biological markers of bone remodeling in a group(More)
Bacterial tracheitis after an upper viral respiratory infection is a well-recognized entity in the pediatric literature. Bacterial tracheitis has only recently been reported in adults, and it is a potentially life-threatening illness. We report a case of bacterial tracheitis in a patient with AIDS.
We have studied fructosamine (measured by colorimetric methods) and glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) using a high pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC) in 20 uremic patients managed conservatively (8 diabetics and 12 non-diabetics) and 20 patients treated with continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) including 12 diabetics and 8 non-diabetics.
