INTRODUCTION: Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of mortality worldwide. When an acute myocardial infarction occurs, it is necessary to establish secondary prevention measures, which can reduce mortality by 50%. Clinical guidelines state that the optimal medical treatment is based upon four groups of drugs: antiplatelet drugs, statins, beta-blockers and angiotensin-converting-enzyme inhibitor or angiotensin II receptor antagonist. OBJECTIVE: To determine physician compliance to evidence-based clinical practice guidelines on secondary prevention of coronary heart disease...

OBJECTIVE: To validate a rapid urease test (RUT) in Cayetano Heredia Hospital (HCH) in Lima, Peru. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This is a prospective observational study that included 181 patients over 18 years old with dyspeptic symptoms. All of them underwent upper gastrointestinal endoscopy at the Department of Gastroenterology at HCH. They had not received, during the last four weeks, proton pump inhibitors (PPIs), bismuth or antibiotics. Two biopsies of antrum were taken, one to perform the TRU (Sensibacter pylori test®) and the other one for pathology, in order to determine by both methods the presence of H...

The Peruvian Andes are the home of 27 species of frogs of the genus Telmatobius, many of which are critically endangered. Illegal trade of adult frogs for purported medical properties likely represents the major threat facing these species. This activity, besides reducing their populations, may contribute to the dissemination of the fungus Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis (Bd), which causes chytridiomycosis, a disease posing a threat to many populations of amphibians. We screened frogs confiscated by the Administration of Forestry and Wildlife in Lima, Peru, for Bd...

INTRODUCTION: Cough is a key symptom of tuberculosis (TB) as well as the main cause of transmission. However, a recent literature review found that cough frequency (number of coughs per hour) in patients with TB has only been studied once, in 1969. The main aim of this study is to describe cough frequency patterns before and after the start of TB treatment and to determine baseline factors that affect cough frequency in these patients. Secondarily, we will evaluate the correlation between cough frequency and TB microbiological resolution...
