BACKGROUND Infection with pandemic (pdm) A/H1N1 virus induces high levels of pro-inflammatory mediators in blood and lungs of experimental animals and humans. METHODS To compare the involvement of seasonal A/PR/8/34 and pdm A/H1N1 virus strains in the regulation of inflammatory responses, we analyzed the changes in the whole-genome expression induced by(More)
AIMS Atypical forms of diabetes may be caused by monogenic mutations in key genes controlling beta-cell development, survival and function. This report describes an insulin-dependent diabetes patient with a syndromic presentation in whom a homozygous SLC29A3 mutation was identified. METHODS SLC29A3 was selected as the candidate gene based on the patient's(More)
BACKGROUND Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a complex immune-mediated disease. It has been suggested that genetic factors could explain differences in the prevalence among ethnic groups. To know whether genetic ancestry is a potential risk factor for MS in Mexican patients and to identify candidate genes for the susceptibility to the disease we conducted an(More)
Accepted: 17-08-12 Abstract Rationale. It is well known that adenomas are the morphological precursors of the vast majority of colorectal cancers. Nevertheless, nonpolypoid lesions follow pathways which differ from the known sequence from adenoma to carcinoma. Since these pathways appear to be more aggressive, early detection is crucial for definition of(More)
Introduction. The Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia (BPD) or Mikity Wilson Syndrome (MWS) are chronic lung diseases with several pathogenic mechanisms. They can be associated with atypical infections by U. urealyticum, C. trachomatis, and Mycoplasma. Objective. We researched pulmonary infections in 10 VLBWN with BPD or MWS and had negative cell cultures by PCR in(More)
