Gemcitabine and paclitaxel are among the most active new agents in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and are worth considering for second-line chemotherapy. In this phase I-II study, we combined gemcitabine and paclitaxel for second-line treatment of advanced NSCLC. Gemcitabine doses were kept fixed at 1000 mg/m2 on day 1 and 8, and paclitaxel doses were(More)
UNLABELLED The purpose of this phase II trial was to assess tolerance and efficacy of the combination of radiation, fluorouracil and oxaliplatin as neoadjuvant treatment in locally advanced rectal cancer. Between March 2001 and August 2004 , 28 patients M/18 F/10 with locally advanced rectal cancer were entered in our study. All the patients underwent to(More)
ITER fueling and Edge Localized Mode (ELM) pacing pellets will be created by punching and chambering pellets with a solenoid operated cutter from an extrudate formed by a twin-screw extruder. The cut pellets are then accelerated down a flight tube by a fast pneumatic valve. The impurity pellets are formed in-situ with a pipe gun technique and accelerated(More)
1 G. Preparata [1] has stressed that when x becomes larger than a critical threshold, deuterons enter in a coherent oscillatory state. Deuterons while in the -phase (x<0.7 at room temperature), are confined in deep and narrow wells at definite lattice sites; this occurs since the d-shell electrons of Pd through their coherent oscillations produce(More)
The problems arising from the techniques of measurement so far used to detect 4He in the gases coming out from Fleishmann-Pons cells are discussed. Innovative solutions are proposed. The results of extensive tests carried out with a facility built at ENEA Frascati are reported, which prove the ability of this equipment to overcome the problems discussed in(More)
The control of the density profile during the initial plasma current rise is a critical issue to optimize ohmic and fusion heating rates of Ignitor plasmas. Simulations performed with the NGS ablation model, for the reference ignition plasma parameters (n<inf>e0</inf> &#x2245; n<inf>i0</inf> &#x2245; 10<inf>21</inf> m<inf>&#x2212;3</inf>, T<inf>e0</inf>(More)
The development of innovative fueling systems in support of magnetic fusion energy, particularly the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER), is described. The ITER fuelling system will use a combination of deuteriumtritium (D-T) gas puffing and pellet injection to achieve and maintain ignited plasmas. This combination will provide a(More)
The detection of tiny amounts of 4He in a deuterium rich atmosphere (as well as of 3He in a tritium background) is of great relevance in fusion research. One of the main concerns in a d-t fusion experiment is to prevent significant accumulation of 4He ashes in the core plasma, since this would result in a dilution of the d-t fuel and in a consequent(More)
The resources dedicated by ENEA to Cold Fusion research in the last two years have been strongly reduced. Nevertheless, fruitful activity has been performed following two main lines. The first line attains to the effort for reaching high values of D/Pd ratio in Pd in order to obtain the best conditions for cold fusion phenomena, in particular power excess(More)
