The number of cancer cases worldwide keeps growing unstoppably, despite the undeniable advances achieved by basic research and clinical practice. Urologic tumors, including some as prevalent as prostate, bladder or kidney tumors, are no exceptions to this rule. Moreover, the fact that many of these tumors are detected in early stages lengthens the duration of their treatment, with a significant increase in health care costs. In this scenario, prevention offers the most cost-effective long-term…

Repositorio: Repisalud
Godoy-Ortiz, Ana, Alba-Bernal, Alfonso, Pascual, Javier, Comino-Méndez, Iñaki, Alba, Emilio

Invasive breast cancer (BC) is the most common cancer in women with a slightly increasing yearly incidence. BC immunohistochemical characterisation is a crucial tool to define the intrinsic nature of each tumour and personalise BC patients' clinical management. In this regard, the characterisation of human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) status guides physicians to treat with therapies tailored to this membrane receptor. Standardly, a tumour solid biopsy is therefore required,…

Recent lifestyle changes include increased consumption of highly processed foods (HPF), which has been associated with an increased risk of non-communicable diseases (NCDs). However, nutritional information relies on the estimation of HPF consumption from food-frequency questionnaires (FFQ) that are not explicitly developed for this purpose. We aimed to develop a short screening questionnaire of HPF consumption (sQ-HPF) that integrates criteria from the existing food classification systems.…

Heart Failure after Cardiac Surgery: The Role of Halogenated Agents, Myocardial Conditioning and Oxidative Stress.

Repositorio: Repisalud
Guerrero-Orriach, José Luis, Carmona-Luque, Maria Dolores, Gonzalez-Alvarez, Laura

Heart disease requires a surgical approach sometimes. Cardiac-surgery patients develop heart failure associated with ischemia induced during extracorporeal circulation. This complication could be decreased with anesthetic drugs. The cardioprotective effects of halogenated agents are based on pre- and postconditioning (sevoflurane, desflurane, or isoflurane) compared to intravenous hypnotics (propofol). We tried to put light on the shadows walking through the line of the halogenated anesthetic…
