|Spanish term or phrase: PBX|
|On a medical certificate, after "IDX". Also, what does "IDX" stand for? It appears after the medical history of the patient and the doctor's recommendations. Thank you!|
Depending on the context, it may refer to telephone extensions in a hospital.
A PBX (private branch exchange) is an in-house phone system that uses switching functions to share a relatively small bank of trunk lines among a larger number of extensions. Modern PBXs also include extensive selections of call-handling, routing, and notification features.
As regards IDX, this seems to be a company that provides telephone systems for the hospital business. See 2nd link below. As far as I can tell, in such hospitals call each other using such an IDX system.

maybe the following will help?
It looks like PBX, at least, is the same in Spanish, but I couldn't swear to it. This may at least help a little. I put asterisks around the PBX part.
The homeodomain protein PDX (IPF/IDX) is a critical regulator of pancreas development and insulin-producing b-cell differentiation and function. We have shown that, in humans, a homozygous mutation of this gene results in failure of the pancreas to develop (pancreatic agenesis), while in the heterozygous state the same mutation results in the phenotype of type 2 diabetes mellitus (MODY4). Defective PDX function could potentially lead to abnormal b-cell growth, decreased glucose-induced insulin gene expression and abnormal expression of glucose-sensing molecules such as GLUT2 and glucokinase.
A third goal involves exploring the role of known and novel TALE class homeoproteins (which include members of the ****Pbx,**** Meis, Prep and pKNOX families) in pancreas development, PDX target gene activation, nuclear localization of PDX, and in mediating the response to growth factors which stimulate new islet formation
Función de genes homeobox de la familia ****Pbx**** en el desarrollo de vertebrados
Resultados obtenidos en nuestro laboratorio han mostrado que el factor de transcripción del tipo homeobox PBX1 está regulado a nivel de localización subcelular en el ratón, al igual que EXD su homólogo en Drosophila melanogaster. Además, durante el desarrollo de la extremidad de ratón, la distribución de los dominios de localización subcelular de PBX1 son similares a los dominios de expresión encontrados para EXD en la mosca.
