Epidemiology of neurocysticercosis in Brazil
(Revista do Instituto de Medicina Tropical de São Paulo, 1996-05-01) [Artigo]
A revision of literature was done with the objective of tracing an epidemiologic profile of neurocysticercosis (NCC) in Brazil. The prevalence was 0.12-9% in autopsies. The frequency was 0.03-7.5% in clinical series and ...
New treatment for frontal sinus hypertrophy
(Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, 1990-01-01) [Artigo]
A new treatment of frontal sinus hypertrophy is described. The anterior wall is removed, inverted, and attached again. The resulting depression is filled with bone dust. Details are discussed, and a case is presented.
The frequency of 844ins68 mutation in the cystathionine β-synthase gene is not increased in patients with venous thrombosis
(Haematologica, 1998-11-01) [Artigo]
Background and Objectives. A frequent mutation in the cystathionine β- synthase (CBS) gene (844ins68, a 68-bp insertion in the coding region of exon 8) was recently discovered. In the present study we investigated this ...

(Journal of Nutrition, Health and Aging, 1998-12-01) [Artigo]
Atrophic gastritis patients have intestinal bacterial overgrowth which could produce menaquinones. The aim of this study was to evaluate the interaction between a diet low in phylloquinone and minidoses of warfarin in ...
A lung computed tomographic assessment of positive end-expiratory pressure-induced lung overdistension
(American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine, 1998-12-01) [Artigo]
The aim of this study was to assess positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP)-induced lung overdistension and alveolar recruitment in six patients with acute lung injury (ALI) using a computed tomographic (CT) scan method. ...
Expression of beta-human chorionic gonadotropin (beta-hCG) in non-trophoblastic elements of transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder: possible relationship with the prognosis.
(Revista Paulista de Medicina, 1993-05-01) [Artigo]
Transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) of the bladder is a neoplasm with variability in its clinical behavior. Although there are several studies correlating stage and ABO isoantigen expression with invasiveness, there is no ...

(Journal of Medical and Veterinary Mycology, 1996-12-01) [Artigo]
A purified glycoprotein of 43 000 daltons from Paracoccidioides brasiliensis (gp43) was tested as paracoccidioidin in delayed-type hypersensitivity (DTH) tests in both experimental animals (guinea pig and mice) and patients ...
