Background:Bevacizumab is being incorporated as first-line therapy with standard-of-care chemotherapy on epithelial ovarian carcinoma (EOC). We investigated bevacizumab combined with chemotherapy on tumour progression and mouse survival in EOC xenograft models.Methods:Bevacizumab was administered concomitantly with cisplatin plus paclitaxel (DDP+PTX),(More)
Seven-day toxicity tests with Ceriodaphnia dubia were used to assess ambient water toxicity in the River Lambro, a tributary of the River Po, and in the corresponding stretch of the main river located downstream from their confluence. About once a month, toxicity tests were conducted on water samples of the River Lambro, using as dilution water the water of(More)
Batch scale activated sludge kinetic studies were undertaken for the treatment of pet food wastewater characterized by oil and grease concentrations of up to 21,500 mg/L, COD and BOD concentrations of 75,000 and 60,000 mg/L, respectively as well as effluent from the batch dissolved air flotation (DAF) system. The conducted kinetics studies showed that(More)
Aerobic respirometric experiments were conducted at a temperature of 40 degrees C to determine biokinetic parameters describing growth and decay of aerobic biomass acclimatized in a membrane-coupled bioreactor (MBR). The kinetic parameters were determined with the volatile fatty acids (VFA) acetic acid and propionic acid as substrates as well as the soluble(More)
A two-stage membrane bioreactor was used to treat dissolved-air-flotation pretreated, high-strength pet food wastewater characterized by oil and grease concentrations of 50 000 to 82 000 mg/L and total chemical oxygen demand (COD) and five-day biochemical oxygen demand (BOD5) concentrations of 100 000 and 80 000 mg/L, respectively, to meet stringent surface(More)
In this work, batch activated sludge studies were investigated for the treatment of raw pet food wastewater characterized by oil and grease concentrations of 50,000-66,000 mg/L, COD and BOD concentrations of 100,000 and 80,000 mg/L, respectively, as well as effluent from an existing anaerobic digester treating the aforementioned wastewater. A pre-treatment(More)
A novel paradigm using pre-denitrification process is presented to optimize an existing system of two-stage MBRs treating high strength pet food wastewater. Successive reduction of organics in the 1st stage and almost complete nitrification in the 2nd stage generated effluent meeting stringent surface discharge criteria i.e. BOD5, TSS and NH4+ -N of < 10(More)
This paper discusses nitrogen removal mechanisms in an aerobic membrane bioreactor (MBR) treating high strength pet food wastewater characterized by oil & grease, COD, BOD5, TSS, TKN, NH4-N concentrations of 2800 mg/L, 25000 mg/L, 10000 mg/L, 4500 mg/L, 1650 mg/L and 1300 mg/L respectively. An MBR operating at SRT >25 days achieved mixed liquor total(More)
Although thermophilic treatment systems have recently gained considerable interest, limited information exists on the comparative performances of membrane-coupled bioreactors (MBR) at thermophilic and conventional conditions. In this study aerobic MBRs operating at room temperature (20 degrees C) and at lower thermophilic range (45 degrees C) were(More)
This paper presents continuous flow two stage activated sludge treatability studies for the treatment of pet food wastewaters characterized by oil & grease concentration of 50,000-66,000 mg l(-1), total COD & BOD concentrations of 100,000 mg l(-1) and 80,000 mg l(-1), respectively. A pre-treatment system, dissolved air flotation (DAF) achieved 97-99%(More)
