In Vitro Bone Cell Behavior on Porous Titanium Samples: Influence of Porosity by Loose Sintering and Space Holder Techniques
A great variety of powder metallurgy techniques can produce biomimetic porous titanium structures with similar mechanical properties to host bone tissue. In this work, loose sintering and space holder techniques, two ...
Oxidative Stress, Telomere Shortening, and Apoptosis Associated to Sarcopenia and Frailty in Patients with Multimorbidity
The presence of oxidative stress, telomere shortening, and apoptosis in polypathological patients (PP) with sarcopenia and frailty remains unknown. Methods: Multicentric prospective observational study in order to assess ...
Use of Impedance Spectroscopy for the Characterization of In-Vitro Osteoblast Cell Response in Porous Titanium Bone Implants
The use of titanium implants with adequate porosity (content, size and morphology) could solve the stress shielding limitations that occur in conventional titanium implants. Experiments to assess the cellular response ...
Quantitative Analysis of Somatostatin and Dopamine Receptors Gene Expression Levels in Non-Functioning Pituitary Tumors and Association with Clinical and Molecular Aggressiveness Features
The primary treatment for non-functioning pituitary tumors (NFPTs) is surgery, but it is often unsuccessful. Previous studies have reported that NFPTs express receptors for somatostatin (SST1-5) and dopamine (DRDs) ...
Quality of Life and Coping in Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease: Influence of Diabetes and Obesity
Our aim was to analyze how type 2 diabetes and obesity influence quality of life (QoL) and coping in patients with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), and which coping strategies predict diabetic or obese participants’ ...
Microstructural and strength changes in trabecular bone in elderly patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus
Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is one of the most common chronic diseases worldwide and it is associated with an increased risk of osteoporosis and fragility fractures. Our aim is to analyze the effect of T2DM on bone ...

Pequeño ensayo descriptivo y filosófico en donde se analizan los cambios profesionales que hemos sufrido los médicos de familia tras la primera ola de la pandemia poe SARS-COV-2.
In vitro activity of pentamidine alone and in combination with antibiotics against multidrug-resistant clinical Pseudomonas aeruginosa strains
Multidrug-resistant (MDR) Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a public health problem causing both community and hospital-acquired infections, and thus the development of new therapies for these infections is critical. The objective ...
Repurposing of the tamoxifen metabolites to combat infections by multidrug-resistant gram-negative bacilli
(Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute, 2021-03-22)
The development of new strategic antimicrobial therapeutic approaches, such as drug repurposing, has become an urgent need. Previously, we reported that tamoxifen presents therapeutic efficacy against multidrug-resistant ...
Impact of treating asymptomatic bacteriuria in kidney transplant recipients: a prospective cohort study
This study aims to define the epidemiologic, clinical, and microbiological features of asymptomatic bacteriuria (AB) and cystitis in kidney transplantation recipients (KTRs), and to determine the impact of antimicrobial ...
