Introduction: Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is a chronic disease featuring axial changes, peripheral arthritis and systemic involvement. Proinflammatory cytokines are probably involved in AS pathogenesis. The relationship of circulating cytokines with instruments of AS evaluation is an open field of research. Objective: The aim of this study was to compare serum levels of cytokines in AS patients and healthy controls, and search for correlations of cytokines with indexes of disease activity and quality of life...

Adrenaline and noradrenaline bind to membrane receptors of the superfamily of G protein-coupled receptors (GPCR) in target cells, where they modulate physiological responses such as metabolism, vasoconstriction, vasodilation and proliferation. Alteration in their function is associated with conditions such as hypertension, benign prostatic hyperplasia and cardiac hypertrophy. In response to adrenaline, receptors form signaling complexes, which enables adrenergic action to be specific, rapid and efficient. These signaling complexes or signalosomes are composed of kinases, phosphatases, and adapter and scaffold proteins, which together modulate the receptor function...

An allopatric population of big-eared climbing rats ( Ototylomys ) from the Northern Highlands of Chiapas, Mexico, is described as a new species. The new taxon is part of a unique montane rainforest community that includes several other endemic species in the limited geographic range between the Río Grijalva and the Central Depression of Chiapas. Several cranial, external, and molecular characters distinguish this new species of big-eared climbing rat from its more widely distributed congener, Ototylomys phyllotis ...

Benzodiazepines (BZDs) are central nervous system (CNS) depressants which are widely used to treat insomnia and anxiety, despite having long-term adverse side effects. (Fortea González, Oriolo, Balcells Oliveró, Sánchez Del Valle & Castellvi, 2017). As with alcohol, continued use can lead to tolerance and dependence phenomena. Discontinuation in such cases can produce abstinence symptoms such as tremors, anxiety, seizures and, occasionally, death (Brett y Murnion, 2015).

La regulación de la profesión médica es un proceso antiguo en nuestro país. Desde los tiempos del virreinato existía el Real Tribunal del Protomedicato, que tenía como función examinar a los médicos, cirujanos y boticarios para ser autorizados a ejercer su profesión; con el tiempo, esta función se fue relegando en otras estructuras administrativas que se fueron modificando, pero que la mantuvieron en vigor.

The rapid rise of particle therapy across the world necessitates evidence to justify its ever-increasing utilization. This narrative review summarizes the current status of these technologies on treatment of both meningiomas and gliomas, the most common benign and malignant primary brain tumors, respectively. Proton beam therapy (PBT) for meningiomas displays high rates of long-term local control, low rates of symptomatic deterioration, along with the potential for safe dose-escalation in select (but not necessarily routine) cases...

Self-perception was compared with the gold standard - direct observation of these activities in the household of older adults by a trained professional, blinded to the answers in the questionnaire...

REVIEW
Lajos Jakab
This paper investigates the fundamental knowledge, build-up, as well as essential structural and important features of the big family of chromogranins/secretogranins. Previously the different properties and the slightly diverging funcional relations of the two family members were in focus. Later on, it has been discovered that they are essentially two similar compounds with identical structures and functions, and they are chemically, biochemically related. From details discovered so far we can tell that they are long polypeptid chains formed from amino acids...

OBJECTIVE: To analyze the use of health services and the quality of medical care received by Brazilian older adults with and without functional limitation. METHODS: The main analyses were based on a national sample representing 23,815 participants of the National Survey on Health (PNS) aged 60 years or older. Functional limitation was defined by the difficulty to perform at least one out of ten basic or instrumental activities of daily living. Potential confounding variables included predisposing and enabling factors of the use of health services...
