2014 14 years of age. 1003 participants who had never smoked were recruited. Risk factors for CAP, including home exposure to passive smoking, were registered. All new cases of CAP in a well-defined population were consecutively recruited during a 12-month period. A population-based case-control study was designed to assess risk factors for CAP, including home exposure to passive smoking. All new cases of CAP in a well-defined population were consecutively recruited during a 12-month period. The subgroup of never smokers was selected for the present analysis. The study sample included 471 patients with CAP and 532 controls who had never smoked. The annual incidence of CAP was estimated to be 1.14 cases×10 –3 inhabitants in passive smokers and 0.90×10 −3 in non-passive smokers (risk ratio (RR) 1.26; 95% CI 1.02 to 1.55) in the whole sample. In participants ≥65 years of age, this incidence was 2.50×10 −3 in passive smokers and 1.69×10 −3 in non-passive smokers (RR 1.48, 95% CI 1.08 to 2.03). In this last age group, the percentage of passive smokers in cases and controls was 26% and 18.1%, respectively (p=0.039), with a crude OR of 1.59 (95% CI 1.02 to 2.38) and an adjusted (by age and sex) OR of 1.56 (95% CI 1.00 to 2.45). Passive smoking at home is a risk factor for CAP in older adults (65 years or more). - 10.1136/bmjopen-2014-005133

131 p, 2.3 MB ADAMTS1 i TFPI-2 : estudi de la seva interacció funcional i les implicacions en la plasticitat tumoral / Torres Collado, Antoni Xavier ; Rodríguez-Manzaneque, Juan Carlos, dir.
Històricament, la ECM (matriu extra cel·lular) ha estat considerada com un lloc inanimat amb una funció per a les cèl·lules purament estructural. Més endavant, diversos experiments varen revelar que és un escenari dinàmic amb importants implicacions en processos fisiològics i patològics, entre ells el desenvolupament embrionari i la progressió tumoral, respectivament. [...]
Historically the extracellular matrix (ECM) has been perceived as an inanimate place with a mere cell structural function. Later on, multiple experiments unravelled that it is a dynamic scenario with important implications in physiological and pathological processes, such as embryonic development and tumor progression, respectively.
