cheap fertomid 50mg with visa

La motivación de este estudio viene de la costumbre ancestral arraigada en poblaciones del norte de la Argentina y Chile fertomid 50 mg cheap, del Perú order fertomid 50 mg overnight delivery, de Bolivia y de algunas zonas del Ecuador y Colombia generic fertomid 50mg on line, donde los habitantes acullican, picchean o coquean las hojas de coca o las beben en infusiones. El consumo responde en las culturas andinas incaicas al pensamiento mágico- religioso, a sus propiedades de mitigar el hambre y el dolor, a sus efectos sobre el mal de montaña (apunamiento) y a su utilización como defatigante muscular. Existe una reserva de desincriminación jurídica sobre la tenencia de hojas de coca para el coqueo y bebida en infusiones, que se hace en la Ley de estupefacientes № 23737, artículo 15. Reserva que se mantendrá hasta que se demuestren efectos deletéreos de esta práctica instituida hace milenios. Se ha postulado la posibilidad de encontrar en los coqueadores alteraciones de la perfusión cerebral. Los niveles de consumo de cocaína, a través de los dosajes urinarios de sus metabolites —benzoilmetilecgonias (bmecg), se correlacionaron en la población estudiada con los hallazgos perfusorios. La población seleccionada debía estar libre de manifestaciones neuropsiquiá- tricas y dar normal en los exámenes neurológicos. Composición de la población estudiada La población en estudio se compuso de tres grupos: el grupo I (G-I): 3 voluntarios que sirvieron de control (2 hombres y 1 mujer), con edades entre 18 y 44 años; el grupo П (G-П): 7 cocainómanos1 (5 hombres y 2 mujeres), de entre 19 y 40 años de edad; y el grupo Ш (G-Ш): 10 coqueadores (8 hombres y 2 mujeres), de entre 20 y 44 años de edad. Los integrantes de este grupo pertenecían a los denominados consumidores moderados e intensos. Siete de ellos provenían de diferentes Departamentos de Bolivia, pero vivían en una comunidad cercana al Gran Buenos Aires, donde se mantiene el hábito del coqueo por tradición ancestral. Si el antígeno es elevado en la alícuota urinaria, la concentración del complejo antígeno conjugado-anticuerpo es menor y la luz se polariza menos. Los resultados se interpolan en la lectura de una curva construida con soluciones testigo de valor conocido (0-300-1000-2000-3000-5000 ng/mL). Las orinas se guardaron a temperaturas comprendidas entre 5 y 10°C, y se procesaron por duplicado. Hasta ahora se desconocen las sustancias con las que se pudiera obtener reacción cruzada. La marcación se realizó con un volumen no mayor de 4 mL; cuando fue necesario se diluyó el eluato con solución fisiológica nitrogenada. Se extrajo igual volumen de aire que de líquido introducido en el frasco para la marcación. Se agitó por 2 min antes de proceder a los controles de calidad para la valoración de la pureza radioquímica por el método extractivo. De la valoración de ambas capas se obtuvieron los resultados de la pureza radioquímica. En el G-I se realizaron in vivo curvas de actividad/tiempo sobre hemisferios cerebrales para certificar el comportamiento del radiotrazador. No se dispoma de láseres para el correcto posicionamiento de la cabeza, lo que dificultó la lectura posterior de las imágenes, algunas de las cuales no pudieron ser adquiridas en condiciones óptimas. Controles de calidad del equipo La Uniformidad de campo integral se controló semanalmente (aceptando valores de entre 3,9 y 4,5%). Protocolo de adquisición Se trabajó con picos simétricos con un ancho de ventana del 20%. La altura de la camilla oscilaba entre 8,5 y 9,0 cm, con cabezal lo más próximo al paciente. La matriz de adquisición fue de 64 x 64, el zoom de 1,5 a 2, y el posicionamiento de la cabeza en АР y a 90°. La estadística de conteo por imágen (90 000- 100 000 cpm) fue de 64 imágenes, en 360°, y 35 por paso [6]. Protocolo de reconstrucción La reconstrucción se hizo con filtro Butterworth, orden 4, oscilando la frecuencia del corte entre 0,35 y 0,45 ciclos/pixel, según el ruido que produjera el estudio. La lectura la realizaron dos médicos especialistas en medicina nuclear, desde el monitor (blanco y negro y/o en color) por doble ciego, consen­ suando las diferencias, cuando surgían. Los del G-П, cocainómanos, dan positivo en la orina y alcanzan los valores más elevados de la población estudiada. En el G-Ш, coquea­ dores, las bmecg tienen niveles bajos, que escasamente sobrepasaron los 1000 ng/mL. Control de calidad del radiofármaco El control de calidad del radiofármaco arrojó valores de entre el 86 y el 90% por el método extractivo. La curva de actividad/tiempo cerebral fue idéntica a la del radiotrazador del Laboratorio Amersham. Hallazgos de la perfusión cerebral Como puede verse en el Cuadro I, el G-I no presentó alteraciones. En el G-П, seis pacientes (86%) presentaron alteraciones focales de la perfusión e imágenes de tipo salpicado o “ patchy”. En el G-Ш, siete pacientes (70%) presentaron algún trastorno de la perfusión, también focal o patchy, asimétricos, aunque las áreas comprometidas eran de tamaño reducido, y tres (30%) tenían perfusión normal. Los otros dos estudios con perfusión normal, coincidentemente tenían bmecg negativas. En los grupos G-П y G-Ш (véase el Cuadro П) aparecen anomalías perfusorias parietales focales izquierdas y a veces hipoperfusiones difusas de algunos de los ganglios de la base. En el G-Ш, las discretas hipoperfusiones son moteadas y preferentemente temporales. Todas las alteraciones descriptas son asimétricas y menos insinuadas que las halladas en el G-П. En el G-Ш se manifestaron discretas hipoperfusiones asimétricas salpicadas o patchy en siete casos (39%) (cinco casos izquierdos y los otros dos bilaterales asimétricos); en el lobulo temporal había cinco casos (28%) (tres casos en el lado izquierdo y dos bilaterales asimétricos). Solo un caso (5,5%) mostró pequeña zona hipoperfundida en el frontal izquierdo y otra en el occipital (5,5%). Los núcleos de la base en cuatro casos (22%) mostraron hipoperfusión discreta bilateral difusa. El resúmen de las localizaciones de las hipoperfusiones del G-Ш en cuestión aparece en el Cuadro П, donde se eviden­ cia que el 67% de las hipoperfusiones se encuentra en las áreas parietotemporales, con patrón focal y asimétrico. Se observan áreas de hipoperfusión asimétrica y valores discretamente elevados de bmecg. Dentro del G-I, como era de esperar, las bmecg fueron negativas y la perfusión cerebral no presentó alteraciones. En el G-П, se registraron los valores de bmecg más elevados, así como las alteraciones perfusorias de más significación. Todas éstas tenían características moteadas asimétricas y con predominio parietal izquierdo (45%), respetando el cerebelo. En el G-Ш, las alteraciones perfusorias se presentaron menos acentuadas, asimétricas moteadas o patchy, en siete casos parietales (39%) (cinco casos (28%) del lado izquierdo y dos casos (20%) en forma asimétrica bilateral). Cinco (28%) de las hipoperfusiones eran temporales y de éstas tres (17%) del lado izquierdo. Se encontró un área hipoperfundida en el frontal izquierdo (5,5%) y otra (5,5%) en el occipital derecho. Los ganglios de la base se encontraron hipoperfundidos bilateral y difusamente en cuatro casos (22%). Las alteraciones cerebrales observadas en los cocainómanos se deben a la vasoconstricción causada por la cocaína y las polidrogas [2, 3, 5, 7].
