BACKGROUND AND AIM OF THE STUDY Glutaraldehyde is considered a promoter of calcification by the action of toxic aldehyde group residuals from cross-linking. Post-fixation treatment with homocysteic acid (HA), besides bonding aldehyde groups and neutralizing toxicity, should enhance biocompatibility due to the strongly electronegative sulfonic group. The aim… (More)
The main anesthesiological problem in TEAC operations is the possibility of evaluating the degree of tolerance after carotid artery clamping. When facing this situation, some anesthesiologists prefer to administer general anesthesia, others prefer loco-regional anesthesia. On the basis of their background and experience, the Authors, from 1.1.1987 to… (More)
The emergence of molecular communication has provided an avenue for developing biological nanonetworks. Synthetic biology is a platform that enables reprogramming cells, which we refer to as Bio-NanoThings, that can be assembled to create nanonetworks. In this paper, we focus on specific Bio-NanoThings, i.e, bacteria, where engineering their ability to emit… (More)
The unexpected and acido-triggered reversible luminescence and nonlinear optical properties of (2-pyrene-1-yl-vinyl)pyridine, a simple and highly transparent chromophore, are studied both in solution and in the solid state. Remarkably, for the first time the acidomodulation of the NLO response of a poled thin film is reported.
The influence of platelet turnover on cyclooxygenase (COX-1) inhibition by low-dose aspirin remains largely uncharacterized due to limited feasibility of studying aspirin pharmacodynamics in bone marrow precursors. We developed an in silico compartmental model describing the aspirin effects on COX-1 activity in a population of megakaryocytes (MK) and in… (More)
The Venetian Plain is known for the occurrence of areas with high concentrations of arsenic in groundwater (greater than 400 μg/L). The study area represents the typical residential, industrial and agricultural features of most Western countries and is devoid of hydrothermal, volcanic or anthropogenic sources of arsenic. The aim of the study is to model the… (More)
The authors have examined two homogeneous groups of patients suffering from "carotid stenosis", operated by TEAC with two different techniques of anaesthesia: general and local-regional (block). Neurological and cardiovascular complications have been recorded in pre and post-operative period. The results analysed statistically with the Pearson test, were… (More)
