We have developed a new method of screening for hemophilia A in families at risk for the disease. A DNA probe (St14) that detects a very polymorphic region on the human X chromosome has been shown to be closely linked to hemophilia A. We observed no recombination between the St14 locus and hemophilia A in 12 families studied. The odds in favor of linkage(More)
Objective: To determine the prevalence of anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide (CCP) antibodies in systemic sclerosis (SSc) and to assess any association between the presence of anti-CCP, radiographic features, and clinical manifestations. Materials and methods: Anti-CCP antibodies and rheumatoid factor (RF) were tested in serum samples from 75 patients with(More)
An adequate intake of magnesium (Mg) is important for bone cell activity and contributes to the prevention of osteoporosis. Because (a) Mg is mitogenic for osteoblasts and (b) reduction of osteoblast proliferation is detected in osteoporosis, we investigated the influence of different concentrations of extracellular Mg on osteoblast-like SaOS-2 cell(More)
Nowadays, several network applications require that consumer nodes acquire distributed services from unknown service providers on the Internet. The main goal of consumer nodes is the selection of the best services among the huge multitude provided by the network. As basic criteria for this choice, service cost and Quality-of-Service (QoS) can be considered,(More)
BACKGROUND This randomized, double-blind, parallel-group clinical trial aims to assess the equivalence of intra-articular polynucleotides compared to standard hyaluronic acid (HA) viscosupplementation in the treatment of knee osteoarthritis (OA). METHODS 75 patients affected by knee OA were assessed for eligibility and 72 were enrolled and randomized to(More)
ICT systems are widely adopted for environmental management, but existing solutions address limited tasks and compose a plethora of heterogeneous tools, which impose a great additional effort on the operators. This work presents SESAMO, a novel framework to provide the operators with a unique tool for gathering, managing and merging environmental and(More)
