The importance of an adequate CNGS beam monitor at the Gran Sasso Laboratory has been stressed in many papers. Since the number of internal νμ CC and NC interactions in the various detectors will not allow to collect statistics rapidly, one should also be able to detect the νμ CC interactions in the upstream rock. In this study we have investigated the(More)

Human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs), the precursors of osteoblasts during osteogenesis, play a role in the balance of bone formation and resorption, but their functioning in uremia has not been well defined. To study the effects of the uremic milieu on osteogenic properties, we applied an in vitro assay culturing hMSCs in osteogenic medium supplemented(More)
The aim of the study was to evaluate the effects of a supervised physical training added to a healthy diet—rich in either carbohydrate and fibre (CHO/fibre) or monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA)—on postprandial dyslipidaemia, an independent cardiovascular risk factor particularly relevant in type 2 diabetes (T2D). Participants were forty-five(More)
Dialysis patients display a high cardiovascular mortality, the causes of which are still not completely explained, but are related to uremic toxicity. Among uremic toxins, homocysteine and cysteine are both substrates of cystathionine β-synthase and cystathionine γ-lyase in hydrogen sulfide biosynthesis, leading to the formation of two sulfur metabolites,(More)
We report the measurement of the time of flight of ∼17 GeV ν(μ) on the CNGS baseline (732 km) with the Large Volume Detector (LVD) at the Gran Sasso Laboratory. The CERN-SPS accelerator has been operated from May 10th to May 24th 2012, with a tightly bunched-beam structure to allow the velocity of neutrinos to be accurately measured on an event-by-event(More)

The primary cosmic ray (CR) proton, helium and CNO fluxes in the energy range 80–300 TeV are studied at the National Gran Sasso Laboratories by means of EAS-TOP (Campo Imperatore, 2005 m a.s.l.) and MACRO (deep underground, 3100 m w.e., the surface energy threshold for a muon reaching the detector being E l 1:3 TeV). The measurement is based on: (a) the(More)
The detection of Gamma Ray Burst GRB990705 on 1999, July 5.66765 UT, pointing to the Large Magellanic Clouds, suggested the search for a possible neutrino counterpart, both in coincidence with and slightly before (or after) the photon burst. We exploited such a possibility by means of the LVD neutrino telescope (National Gran Sasso Laboratory, Italy), which(More)
