Polymerization of misfolded Z alpha-1antitrypin protein lowers CX3CR1 expression in human PBMCs. 

The CX3CR1 (chemokine (C-X3-C motif) receptor 1) expression levels on immune cells have significant importance in maintaining tissue homeostasis under physiological and pathological conditions. The factors implicated in the regulation of CX3CR1 and its specific ligand CX3CL1 (fractalkine) expressio...

RIAM-VASP Module Relays Integrin Complement Receptors in Outside-In Signaling Driving Particle Engulfment. 

The phagocytic integrins and complement receptors αMβ2/CR3 and αXβ2/CR4 are classically associated with the phagocytosis of iC3b-opsonized particles. The activation of this receptor is dependent on signals derived from other receptors (inside-out signaling) with the crucial involvement of the Rap1-...

Incidence and Survival Trends of Pancreatic Cancer in Girona: Impact of the Change in Patient Care in the Last 25 Years. 

(1) Background: We investigated the incidence and survival trends for pancreatic cancer (PC) over the last 25 years in the Girona region, Catalonia, Spain; (2) Methods: Data were extracted from the population-based Girona Cancer Registry. Incident PC cases during 1994-2015 were classified using the...

Normalized medical information visualization 

A new mark-up programming language is introduced in order to facilitate and improve the visualization of ISO/EN 13606 dual model-based normalized medical information. This is the first time that visualization of normalized medical information is addressed and the programming language is intended to...

Towards harmonised criteria in quality assurance and quality control of suspect and non-target LC-HRMS analytical workflows for screening of emerging contaminants in human biomonitoring 

Although the exposure assessment of chemicals of emerging concern (CECs) has taken a decisive step forward through advances in (bio)informatics, statistics, and the development of highly sophisticated analytical instruments, the lack of standardisation and harmonisation of analytical workflows and ...

Late presentation for HIV remains a major health issue in Spain: Results from a multicenter cohort study, 2004-2018. 

With the purpose of reducing the well-known negative impact of late presentation (LP) on people living with HIV (PLWH), guidelines on early HIV diagnosis were published in 2014 in Spain, but since then no data on LP prevalence have been published. To estimate prevalence and risk factors of LP and t...

Mechanisms of abrupt loss of virus control in a cohort of previous HIV controllers 

Elite and viremic HIV controllers are able to control their HIV infection and maintain undetectable or low-level viremia in the absence of antiretroviral treatment. Despite extensive studies, the immune factors responsible for such exclusive control remain poorly defined. We identified a cohort of ...

Knowledge and experiences of Chagas disease in Bolivian women living in Spain: a qualitative study. 

In Europe, Spain has the highest number of people with Chagas disease (CD). Bolivian migrants account for 81% of the reported cases. One of the priorities in controlling the disease is prevention of mother-to-child transmission. Despite under-diagnosis in Spain being estimated at 90%, there are cur...

Screening for autism spectrum disorders: state of the art in Europe. 

A large number of studies have reported on the validity of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) screening procedures. An overall understanding of these studies' findings cannot be based solely on the level of internal validity of each, since screening instruments might perform differently according to ce...

Consecuencias en la Producción Científica de la Covid-19. 

[ES] El impacto y la universalidad de la pandemia de SARS-CoV-2 han provocado en el mundo entero la necesidad de disponer de información científica de una forma rápida y accesible para la correcta toma de decisiones entre los profesionales sanitarios. Por ello, en 10 meses la producción ci...

How patients with COVID-19 managed the disease at home during the first wave in Spain: a cross-sectional study. 

Most patients with mild COVID-19 had to stay at home trying to implement an optimal quarantine. The aim of this study was to describe the COVID-19 cases during the first wave of the pandemic in Spain, how they managed the disease at home, focusing on differences by age, as well as differences in kn...

In Vitro Activity of Ibrexafungerp against a Collection of Clinical Isolates of Aspergillus, Including Cryptic Species and Cyp51A Mutants, Using EUCAST and CLSI Methodologies. 

Ibrexafungerp is a new orally-available 1,3-β-D-glucan synthesis inhibitor in clinical development. Its in vitro activity and that of amphotericin B, voriconazole, and micafungin were evaluated against a collection of 168 clinical isolates of Aspergillus spp., including azole-susceptible and azole-...

Dermatitis artefacta 100 years ago, by Juan de Azúa 

[EN] In 1909, the Spanish dermatologist Juan de Azúa published a study of the main features of skin lesions in dermatitis artefacta. In the article, he paid particular attention to the psychological state of these patients, their family situation, and what they were hoping to gain with pathomimi...

ΔNp73, TAp73 and Δ133p53 Extracellular Vesicle Cargo as Early Diagnosis Markers in Colorectal Cancer 

The early diagnosis of colorectal cancer is a key factor in the overall survival of the patients. The actual screening programs include different approaches with significant limitations such as unspecificity, high invasiveness, and detection at late stages of the disease. The specific content of ex...

Role of Chromodomain-Helicase-DNA-Binding Protein 4 (CHD4) in Breast Cancer. 

Chromodomain-helicase-DNA-binding protein 4 (CHD4) is an epigenetic regulator identified as an oncogenic element that may provide a novel therapeutic target for the treatment of breast cancer (BC). CHD4-the core component of the nucleosome remodeling and deacetylase (NuRD) complex-may be mutated in...

Cross-sectional community study by computer-assisted personal interview in 465 young heroin injectors between 2001 and 2003. Some 4.2% had not obtained any free sterile syringes i...

Influence of Active and Healthy Ageing on Quality of Life Changes: Insights from the Comparison of Three European Countries. 

This study aimed to analyze the determinants of quality of life (QoL) in older people in three European countries (Portugal, Spain and Sweden). A sample of 7589 participants in waves 4 (2011) and 6 (2015) of the Survey on Health, Aging, and Retirement in Europe (SHARE) project, aged 50 and over and...

Structural and biophysical characterizations of HIV-1 matrix trimer binding to lipid nanodiscs shed light on virus assembly. 

During the late phase of the HIV-1 replication cycle, the viral Gag polyproteins are targeted to the plasma membrane for assembly. The Gag-membrane interaction is mediated by binding of Gag's N-terminal myristoylated matrix (MA) domain to phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate (PI(4,5)P2). The viral...
