The posttraumatic Morel-Lavallée seroma (MLS) completes, in medico-legal traumatology, the group of closed soft tissue injuries, along with the bruise, the hematoma and the muscular contusion. It is defined as a closed soft tissue injury produced most commonly as a result of direct trauma with tangential impact, followed by the shearing of the hypodermis(More)
In the last 20 years, DNA molecular analysis has become an important tool in forensic investigations. Currently, it is possible to genotype all types of biological traces or micro-traces containing nucleated cells if they are not entirely destroyed, chemically or bacterial. The DNA profiling is based on the short tandem repeats (STR) and aids in human(More)
The allelic frequency distribution and statistical genetic parameters of forensic relevance for 15 STR loci (D8S1179, D21S11, D7S820, CSF1PO, D3S1358, TH01, D13S317, D16S539, Penta E, Penta D, vWA, TPOX, D18S51, D5S818 and FGA) in a population sample of 336 non-related individuals residing in the Western part of Romania are presented.
In the context of the dangerous phenomenon of fungal resistance to the available therapies, we present here the chemical synthesis of a new series of thiazolyl-triazole Schiff bases B1-B15, which were in vitro assessed for their anti-Candida potential. Compound B10 was found to be more potent against Candida spp. when compared with the reference drugs(More)
BACKGROUND Serological and biochemical identification methods used in forensics have several major disadvantages, such as: long time in processing biological sample and lack of sensitivity and specificity. In the last 30 years, DNA molecular analysis has become an important tool in forensic investigations. DNA profiling is based on the short tandem repeats(More)
AIM The colo-cutaneous fistula is an extremely rare post-operative complication of hernias. This type of complication, besides the surgical aspects, raises also a medical-legal problem regarding the production of the fistula and its consequences. CASE REPORT The authors present the clinical case of a 65 years old man, J.N., from a rural background, who(More)
Our interdisciplinary study aims at the influence of social and familial history and status in a sample of Romanian female offenders. We collected data regarding the social and familial environment and status in the moment of committing a crime from 235 women incarcerated in four Romanian prisons. We applied a 67 item questionnaire conceived by the members(More)
BACKGROUND Identification of bodies of unknown identity that are victims of exposure to very high temperatures, resulting from fires, plane crashes, and terrorist attacks, represents one of the most difficult sides of forensic genetics, because of the advanced state of decomposition. The aim of this study was the identification of the carbonized cadaver of(More)
The segmental branches of the renal artery vary in number and origin. The 1998, Terminologia Anatomica homologates two branches of the renal artery (anterior, posterior) and five segmental arteries: four from the anterior branch and one from the posterior one. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the renal artery branching pattern, the number and origin(More)
BACKGROUND Our study will present the DNA identification of a carbonized victim using the DNA genotyping and by comparing the victim's DNA genotype with his parents' genotypes. METHODS Blood obtained from the heart chambers was used for the identification of the carbonized body's genotype. Biological samples were also obtained by buccal swabs from his(More)
