OBJECTIVE Determine the incidence of otological and endocranial complications of acute otitis media, taking into account previous treatments and the development of complications. MATERIAL AND METHODS Retrospective follow-up study between March 1996-2003 including 16 patients: 9 men, 7 women. RESULTS Nine patients (56.25%) had intracranial complications(More)
80% of patients with chronic autoimmune thrombocytopenic purpura (ATP) may reach normalization of platelet count after steroids or splenectomy. In some of these cases a bleeding tendency may still persist and this has been attributed to abnormalities of platelet function resulting from the effect of platelet-bound antibodies. We have studied 49 ATP patients(More)
Infectious haematopoietic necrosis virus (IHNV) and viral haemorrhagic septicaemia virus (VHSV) are the most important viral pathogens impacting rainbow trout farming. These viruses are persistent in Italy, where they are responsible for severe disease outbreaks (epizootics) that affect the profitability of the trout industry. Despite the importance of IHNV(More)
The test proposed by Dixon et al. is an important contribution to the technique for detection of platelet-associated antibody. This test measures platelet-associated IgG by a complement-mediated red blood cell lysis-inhibition technique. We have used the direct Dixon test to study 44 cases of immune thrombocytopenic purpura and 90 controls, including(More)
Procoagulant activity of peripheral blood mononuclear leucocytes was studied in 24 consecutive patients with Hodgkin's disease. Mononuclear cells, tested immediately after isolation, expressed very low activity which was, however, somewhat higher than that of cells from a matched control group (P = 0.063). Procoagulant activity generated by patients'(More)
The aim of this study was to try to better characterize, on the basis of maternal platelet count and antiplatelet antibodies, women with ITP or a history thereof at risk of being delivered of a child affected by neonatal thrombocytopenia. Results show that either clinical classification or maternal platelet count were not effective in predicting the(More)
After more than 10 years of absence, in 2008 rabies re-emerged and spread in wild foxes in north-eastern Italy. In order to control the infection and to minimize the risk of human exposure, three oral foxes vaccination campaigns were first carried out by manual distribution of baits between January and September 2009, followed by four emergency oral rabies(More)
In the present paper we analyze and discuss about the records referring to animal poisonings and poisoned baits cases covering the period between 2007 and 2013 and submitted for diagnostic investigations to the Istituto Zooprofilattico Sperimentale delle Venezie (IZSVe), which is the public veterinary health institute competent for the north eastern Italian(More)
