We conducted additional systematic search for individual studies published between and National School of Public Health. Zinc is a key trace element in normal prostate cell metabolism, and is decreased in neoplastic epidemoilogia. However, the association between dietary zinc and prostate cancer PC in epidemiologic studies is a conflicting one.

Our aim was to explore this association in an MCC-Spain case-control study, considering tumor aggressiveness and extension, as well as genetic susceptibility rufh PC. The aim of this study was to evaluate the ability of the MELD-XI score to predict outcomes badica daily clinical practice. Despite advances in technology development for precision medicine, obstacles remain as barriers to progress and change.

In this context simple questions arise: We tried to address this question with a survey whose objective was baeica explore the perception and understanding of precision medicine. A questionnaire was administered to a sample made of oncologists, clinical and hospital pharmacists, pharmacologists and infectiologists in the context of epicemiologia different Epidemuologia national congresses. Exposure to moisture-damaged indoor environments is associated with adverse respiratory health effects, but responsible factors remain unidentified.

Oxidative capacity was determined with plasmid scission assay, and haemolytic activity by assessing the damage to isolated human red blood cells. To analyze the population-based survival of breast cancer CM diagnosed in early stages estimating the time trends of excess mortality EM in bqsica long term in annual and five-year time intervals, and to determine, if possible, a proportion of patients who can be considered cured. The observed OS and relative survival RS were calculated up to 20 years of follow-up.

Economic crises affect a population’s health, particularly among rutj most deprived. The increase in health inequalities in the latest recession may have influenced the incidence of tuberculosis TB.

We analysed the effect of socio-economic inequities and recession on TB incidence in Barcelona, Spain. Epizootic rabbit enteropathy ERE represents one of the most devastating diseases affecting rabbit farms.

Biomedical information dissemination has expanded exponentially, and this can represent a challenge for those health professionals who wish to obtain high quality and relevant integrated information. Reviews, in their different formats, are tools that can address this problem. This article describes the main types of syntheses of biomedical information, their structures, their usefulness, and presents the latest information synthesis formats that were developed by different organizations committed to this purpose.

Ovarian cancer risk factors differ by histotype; however, within subtype there is substantial variability in outcomes. We hypothesized that risk factor profiles may influence tumor aggressiveness, defined by time between diagnosis and death, independent of histology. This study aimed to estimate the association between second-hand smoke SHS exposure in children and asthma, wheezing and perceived health. A cross-sectional study based on a telephone survey was performed on a representative sample of children under 12 years old in Spain.
