In this study we have evaluated the antibacterial activity of six cephalosporins of the first generation (cephacetrile, cephalothin, cefazolin, cephaloridin, cephalexin, cephradine) two cephalosporin of the second generation (cefoxitin and cefuroxime) and two of the third generation (cefotaxime and cefoperazone) against 66 clinical bacterial isolates.… (More)
We evaluated 108 liver biopsies--performed over a four year period (1986-1990) at the Ospedale degli Infermi di Biella--with histologic signs of chronic hepatitis. Histological and epidemiological aspects are here reported.
The importance of liver biopsy in the study of liver pathology is emphasised. A series of 63 liver biopsies performed over a three year period is presented and related to liver function and the histological picture. Particular emphasis is placed on the importance of histological studies in cirrhosis and chronic hepatitis. This examination is fundamental for… (More)
