Cancer is a public health problem with an impact on Health Services in Mexico; it is also, one of the leading causes of mortality (mortality rate: 610.6 / 100 000) and is expected to double the total number of new cases by 2035 (GLOBOCAN). The most frequent neoplasms are the malignant tumor of breast, prostate, cervix and uterin, colorectal and pulmonary. The most affected groups are the female, and by age the 65 years and older (INEGI). At the IMSS, the mortality rate for malignant tumors has varied, with a sustained decline since 2010...

Diabetic macular edema can occur at any stage of diabetic retinopathy. It represents the main cause of vision loss in diabetes type I and II with a prevalence of 3-10% in diabetic patients of the Instituto Mexicano del Seguro Social (IMSS). Our aim is to elaborate treatment guidelines and provide recommendations for the use of intravitreal ranibizumab for diabetic medical edema at IMSS. Nine retina specialists and 10 ophthalmologists from IMSS high specialty medical units gathered to discuss the bibliographic evidence for the safety and efficacy of ranibizumab for this disease, in order to create consensus on its use in the institution...

The outcome of an Entamoeba histolytica infection is variable and the contribution of genetic diversity within E. histolytica to human disease is not fully understood. The information provided by the whole genome sequence of the E. histolytica reference laboratory strain (HM-1:IMSS) and thirteen additional laboratory strains have been made publically available. In this review theories on the source of the unexpected level of structural diversity found in E. histolytica will be discussed.

Drift tube-ion mobility spectrometers (DT-IMSs) are used to separate and characterize the structures of gas phase ions. Recent work in coupling an atmospheric pressure DT-IMS to a condensation particle counter (CPC) has extended the application of drift tube ion mobility spectrometry to nanoparticle analysis, with measurements possible for singly charged particles up to 20 nm in diameter. In examining systems with such large analytes, often of interest is not only separation, but also determination of the nanoparticle size or mobility distribution function, defined as the nanoparticle concentration per unit mobility/size...

The Código Infarto (Infarction Code) strategy is part of the comprehensive care program "A Todo Corazón" (To All Heart), whose aim is to reinforce the prevention and health care of cardiovascular diseases. Mexico faces a big challenge, since it is the country with greater mortality secondary to acute myocardial infarction (AMI) in the first 30 days in patients of 45 years or older (28% compared with 7.9% of the average). In addition, Mexico's population has a high prevalence of risk factors (hypertension, diabetes, tobacco use, dyslipidemias, overweight, and obesity)...

BACKGROUND: Multiple sclerosis is a central nervous system demyelinating disease with unknown etiology. However, it is believed to be a multifactorial disease resulting from an interaction of genetic and environmental factors. Immigrant studies have been performed to provide a better view of the pattern of this interaction. We aimed to report the prevalence of MS Afghan immigrants of Isfahan, a population who share the same environment as Isfahan residents but with different genetic backgrounds...

The early symptoms of tularemia and plague, which are caused by Francisella tularensis and Yersinia pestis infection, respectively, are common to other illnesses, resulting in a low index of suspicion among clinicians. Moreover, because these diseases can be treated only with antibiotics, rapid isolation of the bacteria and antibiotic susceptibility testing (AST) are preferable. Blood cultures of patients may serve as a source for bacteria isolation. However, due to the slow growth rates of F. tularensis and Y...

INTRODUCTION: The purpose of this study is to demonstrate the surgical technique for the correction of midfacial deformities; vertical excess and posteroanterior hypoplasia. This situation obligates the need to move the whole osseous structure in an oblique posteroanterior movement that should correct both midfacial deformities. This should also correct the lip incompetence while improving the malar projection on a profile view of the patient. We also present a mathematical formula that gives the angulation needed for moving the midface complex in a simultaneous vertical and posteroanterior direction...
