Objective: To examine the relationship of uric acid levels with parameters of systemic inflammation, metabolic dysfunction as well as anthropometric parameters and liver function tests in subjects with morbid obesity. Methods: C-reactive protein (CRP), tumour necrosis factor-alpha, and interleukin 10 (IL-10) were analyzed in 49 women and men with morbid obesity, relating these markers with uric acid, hepatic function tests, anthropometric and metabolic parameters...

In healthy population, uric acid comprises the major component of 10-20% of renal stones. Extreme hiperuricaemia is seen in cancer patients with tumour lysis syndrome (TLS) which is classically associated with haematological malignancies with rapid tumour growth rates such as acute lymphoid leukaemia and high grade lymphomas. Primary melofibrosis (Agnogenic myeloid metaplasia-AMM) is a chronic myeloproliferative disease characterized by splenomegaly, a leukoerythroblastic blood picture, teardrop poikilocytosis and varying degrees of marrow fibrosis...

There is a real need for new and less toxic drugs for the treatment of Chagas disease, as nifurtimox and benznidazole are effective but toxic and provoke unpleasant side effects, especially in adult patients. Allopurinol, commonly used to treat the hiperuricemia, is also used by the Trypanosoma cruzi's hypoxantine guanine fosforyltransferase as an alternative substrate incorporating it into the parasite's ribonucleic acid, provoking the death of the parasite. However, the results of using allopurinol as chemotherapy for Chagas disease are not clear...

INTRODUCTION: Urinary calculi is an uncommon complication in kidney transplantation; several stone risk factors are found in transplanted patients, but in most cases there is not a relationship between these risk factors and stone formation. The treatment of these patients is complex due to their both immunosuppressive status and border-line renal function. MATERIAL AND METHOD: From 1980 to February 2000, 1198 kidney transplant have been performed in our institution...

We studied the prevalence and the risk factor among the patients of gout in Mexico. Research was conducted in the National Institute of Cardiology and in our private practice. Prevalence of hiperuricemia and gout in the Institute of Cardiology was of 1% (970 out of nearly 100,000 patients). We divided those cases of two subgroups: Reumatology patients (333) and Cardiovascular patients (529). In the first group primary gout was (96.3), and (50.32% in the second. Risk factor was quite different too: nephropathy 9...
