The JAK1/JAK2 inhibitor ruxolitinib produced significant reductions in splenomegaly and symptomatic burden and improved survival in patients with myelofibrosis (MF), irrespective of their JAK2 mutation status, in 2 phase III studies against placebo (COMFORT-I) and best available therapy (COMFORT-II). We performed a comprehensive mutation analysis to(More)
The role of antiplatelet therapy as primary prophylaxis of thrombosis in low-risk essential thrombocythemia has not been studied in randomized clinical trials. We assessed the benefit/risk of low-dose aspirin in 433 patients with low-risk essential thrombocythemia (271 with a CALR mutation, 162 with a JAK2(V617F) mutation) who were on antiplatelet therapy(More)
A prospective double-blind randomized study was undertaken to evaluate the use of RU-486 for induction of labor at term with living infants. 120 patients at 37 weeks of pregnancy or over were included. 60 were given 200 mg RU-486 per day for 48 hours and the others were given placebos. The 120 women all had a medical indication for induction of labor. In(More)
OBJECTIVES To verify recent preliminary data indicating that white matter hyperintensities on magnetic resonance imaging are more abundant in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) than in healthy subjects and to examine possible correlation between these abnormalities and clinical features of PD. DESIGN Magnetic resonance imaging data on patients with PD(More)
Making nature's value visible to humans is a key issue for the XXI century and it is crucial to identify and measure natural capital to incorporate benefits or costs of changes in ecosystem services into policy. Emergy analysis, a method able to analyze the overall functioning of a system, was applied to reckon the value of main ecosystem services provided(More)
In 44 diabetic patients treated either with insulin or with oral antidiabetic agents, non-enzymatic glycosylation of serum proteins (GSP), expressed as nmol of 5-hydroxymethylfurfural/mg protein, showed higher values than those found in control subjects. In the diabetic GSP was more closely correlated to the degree of glycometabolic control during the 15(More)
A modification of previously described methods for the purification of human prostatic acid phosphatase from prostatic tissue is proposed. The purification scheme comprises an Ammonium sulphate fractionation and affinity chromatography on Concanavalin A-Sepharose after dialysis against water. After DEAE-Sephadex A 50 chromatography, the final step is an(More)
