ACE2 gene variants may underlie interindividual variability and susceptibility to COVID-19 in the Italian population
TLDR
Findings suggest that a predisposing genetic background may contribute to the observed interindividual clinical variability associated with COVID-19, allowing an evidence-based risk assessment leading to personalized preventive measures and therapeutic options. Expand
Central neurocytoma: two case reports and review of the literature
TLDR
This paper reviews the literature on central neurocytomas observed in the last few years and discusses their clinical, histopathological, immunohistochemical and genetic characteristics. Expand
Radiation-induced intracranial meningiomas: review of six operated cases
TLDR
Six cases of radiation-associated intracranial meningiomas in patients previously treated with low-dose radiation to the scalp for tinea capitis are described. Expand
Cervical dermal sinus complicated with intramedullary abscess in a child: case report and review of literature
TLDR
Literature review confirms that an early diagnosis followed by prompt surgical spinal cord decompression gives a functional neurological recovery. Expand
Pre-Operative Subarachnoid Haemorrhage in a Patient With Spinal Tumour
TLDR
The case of a patient diagnosed with cauda equina syndrome caused by lumbar schwannoma who presented with sudden cephalalgia is reported. Expand
Early manifestations of dementing illness: Treatment with glycosaminoglycan polysulfate
TLDR
Treatment with glycosaminoglycan polysulfate in the daily dosage of 600 LRU, administered on the basis of a divided dosage schedule for 24 weeks, was significantly superior to an inactive placebo on several outcome measures including the SCAG Total and factor scores. Expand
Time-course phosphorylation of glucose by Saccharomyces carlsbergensis following alterations in cell membrane permeability
TLDR
Assessment of enzymatic activity of hexokinase (HK) phosphofructokinases (PFK) and aldolase (AL) during fermentation showed a higher leakage of both kinases in permeabilized cells than in intact ones. Expand
Evaluation of the Ar+ laser thermal effect in rabbit brain tissue by means of optical absorption coefficients. Photoacoustic measurements
TLDR
The prediction of lack of any selective effect for the different areas is confirmed by the sizes of lesions made in cerebral specimens of the same areas of the contralateral hemisphere by means of Ar+ laser: the lesions increase in size in proportion to the increase in output power and exposure time, independently of the areas considered.

Circulating immune complexes in infected ventriculoatrial and ventriculoperitoneal shunts
TLDR
In febrile, septicemic patients with few clinical symptoms, immune complexes were present, and their measurement in serial serum samples was a significant diagnostic aid. Expand
