Red blood cell membrane lipid peroxidation and chronic haemolysis in haemodialysis patients.
Pre dialysis concentrations of malonyldialdehyde (MDA) in the red blood cell membranes and pre and post dialysis percent variation of plasma haemoglobin levels are studied in a group of uraemicExpand
[Description of a case of giant adrenal myelolipoma and survey of the literature].
Adrenal myelolipoma is a benign tumor affecting the adrenal gland. It is composed by adipose cells and myelopoietic cells present in each normal differentiating stage of the bone marrow. TheExpand
The gastrointestinal tract in uremic patients on long-term hemodialysis.
CD44 ligation on peripheral blood polymorphonuclear cells induces interleukin-6 production.
Polymorphonuclear cells (PMNs) contribute to the initiation and progression of the immune response by mediating cytotoxicity, phagocytosis, and cytokine secretion. Because CD44 serves as aExpand
Tall cell variant of papillary thyroid cancer.
Papillary histologic type is the most common form of thyroid carcinoma amounting to 85% cases. This pathology presents a rather good prognosis, but a few years ago, new subtypes have been described.Expand
Sirolimus in kidney transplantation from marginal donors.
Nephrotoxicity caused by calcineurin inhibitors can lead to either delayed graft function or long-term decline of renal function after kidney transplantation. Therefore, recipients of renalExpand
Disappearance of oxidative damage to red blood cell membranes in uremic patients following renal transplant.
Hemodialysis patients display increased oxidative damage to red blood cell (RBC) membranes, characterized by elevated levels of malonyldialdehyde (MDA), a short chain aldehyde produced by theExpand
[Surgical complications in renal transplantation].
Technical complications in kidney transplantation are unusual but with a high incidence of graft loss and mortality. The authors report their experience with 89 kidney transplants with an overallExpand
Subcutaneous Administration of Interleukin-2 Triggers Fc&ggr; Receptor I Expression on Human Peripheral Blood Neutrophils in Solid and Hematologic Malignancies
Freshly isolated human polymorphonuclear cells (PMNCs) constitutively express Fc&ggr; receptor (Fc&ggr;R) II and Fc&ggr;RIII on the cell surface but not Fc&ggr;RI. Cytokines such as interferon-&ggr;Expand
