Whey proteins were modified by reaction with selected phenolic compounds (ferulic-, chlorogenic-, caffeic- and gallic acid) and related substances (quinic acid and p-quinone) as well as with extracts from coffee, tea, potato and pear at pH 9. The derivatives formed were characterized in terms of their physicochemical and digestion properties. The(More)

Little information exists regarding the performance of Spanish-speaking versus English-speaking patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) on the Mini-Mental State Examination and the Mattis Dementia Rating Scale.

BACKGROUND Epidemiological studies show that up to 10% of individuals aged 65 years and older suffer from dementia, most commonly from dementia of the Alzheimer Type (DAT) (1). Clinicopathological studies are critical to our understanding of this disease and improving the accuracy of clinical diagnoses. OBJECTIVES Our objectives were to examine the(More)
We report a case of a 52-year-old female patient with known cerebral cavernomas and acute headache. A cranial CT scan excluded an intracranial bleeding. Cavernomas are rare vascular malformations of the venous blood system (synon. cavernous angiomas) with a slow blood flow. Clinical manifestation is presented between an age of 30-50 years with mostly(More)
