BACKGROUND Estrogen receptor-positive breast cancer tumors depend on estrogen signaling for their growth and replication and can be treated by anti-estrogen therapy with tamoxifen. Polymorphisms of the CYP2D6 and CYP2C19 genes are associated with an impaired response to tamoxifen. The study objective was to investigate the impact of genetic polymorphisms in(More)
Cycling competitions represent an important physical overload even for well-trained individuals. In six professional cyclists, we studied the adaptive oxidative and anti-inflammatory response to a 4-day road cycling competition and its relationship with melatonin, an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory stress hormone. Blood and urine samples were collected(More)
BACKGROUND CYP2D6 is a key enzyme in tamoxifen metabolism, transforming it into its main active metabolite, endoxifen. Poor CYP2D6 metabolizers (PM) have lower endoxifen plasma concentrations and possibly benefit less from treatment with tamoxifen. We evaluated tamoxifen dose adjustment in CYP2D6 PM patients in order to obtain plasma concentrations of(More)
An outbreak of trichinellosis caused by wild boar meat occurred in the Iruela (Jaen) in southern Spain in February 1996. Thirty-five people were diagnosed on the basis of epidemiologic data, but only 24 patients agreed to participate in this study. Twenty-three (96%) had symptoms suggestive of trichinellosis. Immunofluorescent and Western blot test results(More)
The present research was designed to evaluate the adaptive responses to oxidative stress and inflammation in handball players subjected to well-controlled training intervals over one-year of competition. Seven blood samples were collected over the season of the study, approximately one a month. Plasma lipid peroxidation, nitrite, cytokines (IL-1β, IL-6,(More)
OBJECTIVE Renal stone formation is a multifactorial process depending in part on urine composition. Other parameters relate to structural or pathological features of the kidney. To date, routine laboratory estimation of urolithiasis risk has been based on determination of urinary composition. This process requires collection of at least two 24 h urine(More)
Previous data showed that the administration of high doses of melatonin improved the circadian system in athletes. Here, we investigated in the same experimental paradigm whether the antioxidant properties of melatonin has also beneficial effects against exercise-induced oxidative stress and muscle damage in athletes. Twenty-four athletes were treated with(More)
BACKGROUND Thrombophilia is defined as an inherited or acquired abnormality of hemostasis predisposing to thrombosis. While the most common thrombophilia has a genetic origin and is manifested by elevated circulating antiphospholipid antibodies, about 40% of cases presenting with thrombosis are acquired. Factor V Leiden G1691A, prothrombin G20210A, MTHFR(More)
BACKGROUND Duchénnè/Becker muscular dystrophies (DMD/BMD) are X-linked diseases, which are caused by a de novo gene mutation in one-third of affected males. The study objectives were to determine the incidence of DMD/BMD in Andalusia (Spain) and to establish the percentage of affected males in whom a de novo gene mutation was responsible. METHODS(More)
