We studied the influence of exercise level, severity of coronary artery disease (CAD), presence of previous myocardial infarction (MI), anterior or diaphragmatic, on the clinical value of exertional Q wave changes (Delta-Q). We retrospectively evaluated the exercise electrocardiograms of 62 patients without angiographic evidence of CAD and 133 patients with(More)
In vitro spontaneous IgG gliadin antibody production was shown in peripheral blood mononuclear cell (PBMC) cultures from 12/14 patients with active coeliac disease; in most cases no increase and sometimes a marked reduction of the in vitro synthesis was observed after pokeweed mitogen (PWM) addition. Lower levels of gliadin antibodies were also detected in(More)
A sandwich double antibody solid-phase enzyme immunoassay (EIA) that can detect and quantitate gliadin is described. Quantitative analysis could be carried out in the range of 5-400 ng/ml and the assay was more sensitive than inhibition EIA. Gliadin possessed weak cross-reactivity with oats, maize and rice prolamines. In the presence of anti-gliadin(More)
In order to evaluate the diagnostic value of exercise-induced Q wave changes and its relationship with the extent of coronary involvement and presence and location of a previous myocardial infarction, we examined the stress electrocardiograms of 188 consecutive patients with chest pain. Coronary arteriography shoved single vessel disease (SV) in 28 patients(More)
Sera from six children with active coeliac disease, and elevated titres against gliadins and from six age-matched controls, were examined for IgG antibodies against different cereal proteins by a solid-phase radioimmunoassay. Antibodies to the major wheat proteins and the prolamines of other cereals were present in low titre in all control sera. In coeliac(More)
Cow's milk proteins and ovalbumin have been recently identified in human breast milk(1). The aim of this investigation was to determine whether wheat gliadin is also present in human milk. Following the ingestion of a test meal of 20 g gluten, samples of breast milk were collected from 53 women at various stage of lactation.Gliadin was assessed by a(More)
The use of products that can neutralize or significantly reduce the microbial load and that are not harmful to human health and the environment represents a milestone in the fight against the spread of infectious diseases. Peracetic acid, besides being an excellent sterilizing and sporicidal agent, is harmless to humans and the environment when it is used(More)
Anthrax is a zoonotic disease caused by Bacillus anthracis spore-forming bacterium. Since it is primarily a disease of animals, the control in animals, and humans depend on the prevention in livestock, principally cattle, sheep, and goats. Most veterinary vaccines utilize the toxigenic, uncapsulated (pXO1+/pXO2-) B. anthracis strain 34F2 which affords(More)
