  • Role of Clinical Ethics Support Services in End-of-Life Care and Organ Transplantation. [Journal Article]
    Transplant Proc 2019Picozzi M, Roggi S, Gasparetto A
  • At times, clinical expertise may not be sufficient to find a way out of a moral impasse, especially in the context of end-of-life and organ transplantation decisions. Advances in medical knowledge and technology, and highly pluralistic and multicultural societies, have led to the emergence of new ethical problems in daily clinical practice along with the need to manage them in a prompt and effect…
  • [Adipose tissue: immune function and alterations caused by obesity]. [Journal Article]
    Rev Alerg Mex 2019 Jul-Sep; 66(3):340-353Vega-Robledo GB, Rico-Rosillo MG
  • The adipose tissue, which is currently viewed as an organ with neuroimmunoendocrine functions, participates in the homeostasis of the human organism. It has great plasticity and functional variability based on the intake of nutrients or to the increase or decrease of its tissue volume, which modifies both the function and the number of the cells that form it or reach it. The elements that are rel…
  • Anatomy of the olfactory mucosa. [Journal Article]
    Handb Clin Neurol 2019; 164:47-65Salazar I, Sanchez-Quinteiro P, … Vega JA
  • The classic notion that humans are microsmatic animals was born from comparative anatomy studies showing the reduction in the size of both the olfactory bulbs and the limbic brain relative to the whole brain. However, the human olfactory system contains a number of neurons comparable to that of most other mammals, and humans have exquisite olfactory abilities. Major advances in molecular and gene…
  • Anatomy of the olfactory system. [Journal Article]
    Handb Clin Neurol 2019; 164:17-28Smith TD, Bhatnagar KP
  • Of the principal sensory systems (vision, olfaction, taste, hearing, and balance), olfaction is one of the oldest. This ubiquitous system has both peripheral and central subdivisions. The peripheral subdivision is comprised of the olfactory epithelium and nerve fascicles, whereas the central subdivision is made up of the olfactory bulb and its central connections. Humans lack the "accessory olfac…
  • Variation of organ position in snakes. [Journal Article]
    J Morphol 2019Perez D, Sheehy CM, Lillywhite HB
  • The complex and successful evolutionary history of snakes produced variation in the position and structure of internal organs. Gravity strongly influences hemodynamics, and the impact on structure and function of the cardiovascular system, including pulmonary circulation, is well established. Therefore, we hypothesized that interspecific variation in the position of the heart and vascular (faveol…
  • Skeletal muscle wasting in chronic kidney disease: the emerging role of microRNAs. [Journal Article]
    Nephrol Dial Transplant 2019Robinson KA, Baker LA, … Watson EL
  • Skeletal muscle wasting is a common complication of chronic kidney disease (CKD), characterized by the loss of muscle mass, strength and function, which significantly increases the risk of morbidity and mortality in this population. Numerous complications associated with declining renal function and lifestyle activate catabolic pathways and impair muscle regeneration, resulting in substantial pro…
