— In modern racing games programming non-player characters with believable and sophisticated behaviors is getting increasingly challenging. Recently, several works in the literature suggested that computational intelligence can provide effective solutions to support the development process of NPCs.
Iodine supplementation through salt iodization is a worldwide, effective strategy for preventing iodine deficiency-related problems. Its safety and efficacy profile has been extensively investigated, and benefits far outweigh the potential iodine-induced risks. Moreover, iodine supplementation during pregnancy in order to avoid brain damage in the newborn… (More)
Somatostatin analogs (SSAs), which were initially used to control hormonal syndromes associated with neuroendocrine neoplasms (NENs), have been successfully proposed as antiproliferative agents, able to control tumor growth in patients affected by gastroenteropancreatic (GEP)-NENs. The development of long-acting formulations of SSAs which require only… (More)
BACKGROUND Pheochromocytoma and reninoma represent two rare diseases causing hypertension. We here reported a rare case of association between type 2 multiple endocrine neoplasia related bilateral pheochromocytoma and reninoma. Moreover, polymorphism of ACE gene, which is known to be related to an increase of cardiovascular risk, has been found in the same… (More)
A morphometrical analytical evaluator of asymmetries of biological structures bonded by a closed curve was suggested. A second degree equation couple was found in order to detect, respectively according X and Y axis, first main asymmetry whereas third degree equation revealed first and second asymmetry for both abscissa and ordinate values. Final evaluator,… (More)
