The purpose of this article was to report the results of heart transplantations (HTs) carried out in Spain from the first use of the technique until December 2006. A descriptive analysis of all HTs carried out since the first transplant in May 1984 up to December 31, 2006. In total, 5241 transplants have been performed. The majority (94%) were de novo transplants in adults. The percentages of pediatric transplants and retransplants were low, at 4% and 2%, respectively. The percentage of transplants that were combined with lung, kidney or pancreas transplants was also low (2%). The typical clinical profile of a Spanish heart transplant recipient was that of a 52-year-old male who had been diagnosed with nonrevascularizable ischemic heart disease along with severely depressed ventricular function and a poor functional status. The implanted heart was typically from a 34-year-old donor who had died from a head injury. The average waiting time was 125 days. The mean survival time has increased progressively over the years. Whereas for the whole series, the probabilities of survival at 1, 5, 10 and 15 years were 75%, 64%, 51% and 35%, respectively, over the past 5 years, the probabilities of survival at 1 and 5 years were 80% and 75%...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.


Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Regulation of Vocal-Motor Plasticity

Dopaminergic projections to the basal ganglia and nucleus accumbens shape the learning and plasticity of motivated behaviors across species including the regulation of vocal-motor plasticity and performance in songbirds. Discover the latest research on the regulation of vocal-motor plasticity here.

Myocardial Stunning

Myocardial stunning is a mechanical dysfunction that persists after reperfusion of previously ischemic tissue in the absence of irreversible damage including myocardial necrosis. Here is the latest research.
