BACKGROUND Penile squamous cell carcinoma (PSCC) is a tumor with a high metastatic potential. In PSCC the attributable fraction to human papillomavirus (HPV) is not well established. OBJECTIVE We sought to provide novel data about the prevalence of HPV in a large series of penile intraepithelial neoplasia (PeIN) and invasive PSCC, correlating the results(More)
BACKGROUND Concern regarding the QTc interval in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected patients has been growing in recent years, and cases of prolonged QTc interval and torsades de pointes have been described in HIV-infected patients on methadone therapy. This study aimed to determine the prevalence and factors associated with long QTc interval in a(More)
PURPOSE Penile squamous cell carcinoma is a rare neoplasm associated with a high risk of metastasis and morbidity. There are limited data on the role of the mTOR signaling pathway in penile squamous cell carcinoma carcinogenesis and tumor maintenance. We assessed a possible role for mTOR signaling pathway activation as a potential predictive biomarker of(More)
OBJECTIVE Little information is available on postoperative morbidity and mortality after pulmonary metastasectomy. We describe the postoperative morbidity and mortality in a large multicentre series of patients after a first surgical procedure for pulmonary metastases of colorectal carcinoma (CRC) and identify the pre- and intraoperative variables(More)
Sarcopenia is the loss of muscle mass and strength, which in the elderly can result in disability and affect functional outcomes after hospitalization. The aim of this study was to evaluate the functional outcomes and mortality during hospitalization and at three months post-discharge, according to the presence of sarcopenia. Prospective study of 99(More)
BACKGROUND Rehabilitation success is measured by instruments that assess performance of activities of daily living. Guidelines on the use and choice of these instruments are lacking. The present study aimed to analyse prognostic indicators of physical rehabilitation effectiveness in elderly patients according to three rehabilitation impact indices. (More)
BACKGROUND Antiretroviral therapy (ART) has reduced the rates and changed the causes of hospital admission. However, human immunodeficiency virus-positive intravenous drug users (HIV-IDU) continue to have increased hospitalizations and discharge diagnosis are less defined in the late ART era. Our aim was to examine ART use, HIV-1 RNA suppression, and(More)
Continuous HIV treatment is necessary to ensure successful combined antiretroviral therapy (cART). The aim of this study was to evaluate the incidence of patient-initiated non-structured treatment interruptions in HIV-infected persons who inject drugs and who received a multidisciplinary comprehensive program, including medical HIV care, drug-dependence(More)
doi:10.3265/Nefrologia.pre2012.Sep.11692 Dear Editor, We read with interest the report of Dr. Guang-Yu Zhou, about a case of Membranous Glomerulonephritis with crescentic transformation. Acute crescentic transformation is a rare but well described event in patients with membranous glomerulonephritis. The concomitant occurrence of a vasculitic(More)
