Ornithine transcarbamylase deficiency (OTCD) is an X-linked urea cycle defect associated with severe and usually fatal hyperammonemia. This study describes a patient with early onset lethal OTCD due to a known pathogenic variant (c.298+1G>A), as well as the novel autopsy finding of kernicterus with relatively low blood concentration of unconjugated bilirubin (UCB) (11.55 mg/dL). The patient was a full-term male with a family history of two previous male siblings who died as newborns after acute neurologic deterioration...

Cyclohexanol, phenol, benzoic acid, and phenanthrene fractional removal (italicized words are defined within the main text) by pulverized granular activated carbon and biochar adsorption in deionized water and stormwater was independent of target-adsorbate initial concentrations (C0) when C0s were below concentration thresholds. This permits a simple-modeling approach. C0-independent removal in deionized water at low-target-adsorbate concentrations potentially suggests that DOM in the deionized water induce a competitive effect that causes deviations from the Freundlich model...

Although the pathophysiological significance of resistant hypertension in post-myocardial infarction (MI) patients is established, mechanisms by which increased afterload in that setting worsens outcome are unclear. With regards to sudden cardiac death, whether increased afterload alters the electrophysiological substrate following MI is unknown. We established a new large animal model of chronic post-MI remodeling with increased afterload which exhibits widespread deposition of fibrosis in remote areas from the anterior MI, mimicking the disease phenotype of patients with advanced ischemic heart disease...

Swimming has little effect on bone mass. Therefore, adolescent swimmers should complement their water training with a short and intense weight-bearing training, aiming to increase their bone acquisition. Forty swimmers performed a six-month whole-body vibration (WBV) training. WBV had no effect on adolescent swimmers' bone mass or lean mass. PURPOSE: The aims of the present study were to evaluate the effects of a whole-body vibration (WBV) intervention on bone mineral density (BMD), bone mineral content (BMC) and lean mass (LM) in adolescent swimmers...

Primary HIV-1 infection is a relevant period for its virological and epidemiological consequences. Most patients present a symptomatic disease that can be potentially serious, but neurological involvement during primary HIV-1 infection has been poorly studied. The aim of this study was to describe the characteristics and outcomes of primary HIV-1 infection patients presenting neurological symptoms and to compare them with primary HIV-1 infection patients without neurological involvement. Retrospective case-control study (1:3) comparing primary HIV-1 infection patients with and without neurological involvement enrolled in the Acute/Recent Hospital Clinic PHI Cohort between 1997 and 2016...

Hepatic abscesses subsequent to a gastrointestinal perforation after the ingestion of a foreign body are rare, even more so if the perforation passes through the gastric antrum to the common bile duct. We present the case of a 75-year-old male who had been suffering from fever, discomfort and weakness for a week.

Background -Clinical protocols aimed to characterize the post-myocardial infarction (MI) heart by cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) need to be standardized to take account of dynamic biological phenomena evolving early after the index ischemic event. Here we evaluated the time-course of edema reaction in ST-segment elevation MI (STEMI) patients by CMR and assessed its implications for myocardium-at-risk (MaR) quantification both in patients and in a large animal model. Methods -A total of 16 anterior STEMI patients successfully treated by primary angioplasty and 16 matched controls were prospectively recruited...

Lipoxygenase (LOX) is an important contributor to aroma compounds in most fresh produce; however, little is known about the LOX pathway in pepino (Solanum muricatum Aiton) fruit. We explored the LOX aroma compounds produced by the flesh and the peel and identified eight putative LOX genes expressed in both tissues during fruit growth and development during two consecutive seasons. This study shows that pepino produces C5, C6, and C9 LOX-derived compounds. Odorant C9 volatiles were produced during immature stages with a concomitant decrease when the fruit ripens, whereas C5 and C6 compounds were formed throughout ripening...

The aim of the study was to determine the criterion validity of a computerized version of the General Anxiety Disorder-7 (GAD-7) questionnaire to detect general anxiety disorder in Spanish primary care centers. A total of 178 patients completed the GAD-7 and were administered the Composite International Diagnostic Interview (CIDI) for DSM-IV Axis I Disorders, which was used as a reference standard. Sensitivity, specificity, positive and negative predictive values, and positive and negative likelihood ratios were calculated...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the association between plasma ceramides and hepatic steatosis (HS) in adolescents, independently of obesity. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Ninety-four adolescents from two previous studies conducted and published by our crew were included. Study subjects were stratified in three groups: normal weight (n = 18), obesity (n = 34), and obesity + HS (n = 42). The presence of HS was defined when ALT/AST ratio was <1. Ceramides subspecies (C14:0, C16:0, C18:0, C24:0, and C24:1) were determined by LC/MS...

INTRODUCTION: The hand grip strength test provides useful and reliable information about overall health. Different studies have investigated the optimal grip span for determining maximal hand grip strength in different populations such as adults, adolescents and children without disabilities. OBJECTIVE: To ascertain whether there is an optimal grip span for determining maximal hand grip strength in adolescents with Down syndrome (DS). METHODS: Twenty-seven right-handed youths with DS (seven females) aged 15...

OBJECTIVE: The influence of living in a rural or urban environment on asthma and allergic diseases in school-children provide conflicting results; moreover none of these studies included exclusively preschoolers. The aim of the present study was to evaluate if recurrent wheezing preschoolers from rural or urban areas differ in asthma, allergic diseases, and atopy. METHODS: A cross-sectional-study in Rafaela, Argentina, on 143 preschoolers with recurrent wheezing from rural and urban settings was performed (2010-2012)...

The mucosal surfaces of mammals are densely colonized with microorganisms that are commonly referred to as the commensal microbiota. It is believed that the fetus in utero is sterile and that colonization with microorganisms starts only after birth. Nevertheless, the unborn fetus is exposed to a multitude of metabolites that originate from the commensal microbiota of the mother that reach systemic sites of the maternal body. The intestinal microbiota is strongly personalized and influenced by environmental factors, including nutrition...

Despite the increasing presence of wireless communications in everyday life, there exist some voices raising concerns about their adverse effects. One particularly relevant example is the potential impact of the electromagnetic field they induce on the population's health. Traditionally, very specialized methods and devices (dosimetry) have been used to assess the strength of the E-field, with the main objective of checking whether it respects the corresponding regulations. In this paper, we propose a complete novel approach, which exploits the functionality leveraged by a smart city platform...

Cholangiocarcinoma (CCA) includes a heterogeneous group of biliary cancers with poor prognosis. Several conditions such as primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) are risk factors. Non-invasive differential diagnosis between intrahepatic CCA (iCCA) and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is sometimes difficult. Accurate non-invasive biomarkers for PSC, CCA or HCC are not available. In the search of novel biomarkers, serum extracellular vesicles (EV) were isolated from CCA (n=43), PSC (n=30) or HCC (n=29) patients, and healthy individuals (control, n=32), and their protein content was characterized...
