The purpose of this study was to investigate the clinical features of hepatic metastasis in patients with epithelial ovarian cancer. From 1998 to 2002, all women with hepatic metastasis from ovarian cancer were identified at the University of Bari. Twenty-nine patients identified included one having stage IIC, one stage IIIA, two stage IIIB, 17 stage IIIC,(More)
Importance Cerebral amyloidosis is a key abnormality in Alzheimer disease (AD) and can be detected in vivo with positron emission tomography (PET) ligands. Although amyloid PET has clearly demonstrated analytical validity, its clinical utility is debated. Objective To evaluate the incremental diagnostic value of amyloid PET with florbetapir F 18 in(More)
Thanks to its safety and accessibility, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is extensively used in clinical routine and research field, largely contributing to our understanding of the pathophysiology of neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer's disease (AD). This review aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the main findings in AD and normal aging(More)
Breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer related death in women. Quercetin is a flavonol shown to have anti-carcinogenic actions. However, few studies have investigated the dose-dependent effects of quercetin on tumorigenesis and none have used the C3(1)/SV40 Tag breast cancer mouse model. At 4 weeks of age female C3(1)/SV40 Tag mice were randomized to(More)
Colorectal cancer is one of the most common malignancies in the word and can be usually cured if diagnosed at an early stage. In the European area the estimated number of new cases of cancer in 1995 were approximately 334.000 and 189.000 died of cancer in that year. Despite recent progress in early detection and surgical therapy, the mortality remained(More)
BACKGROUND Beliefs of dementia experts about the pathogenic role of amyloid in Alzheimer's disease (AD) may affect the use of amyloid positron emission tomography (PET). OBJECTIVE To assess the role attributed to amyloid in AD pathogenesis by Italian dementia experts, and whether this modulates the impact of amyloid PET results in their diagnostic workup.(More)
