At higher doses nicotine produces seizures. The mechanisms underlying the convulsive effects of nicotine are not known, but studies conducted on a number of inbred(More)
Humanin (HN) is a 24-residue peptide displaying a protective activity in vitro against a range of cytotoxic and neurotoxic insults, as well as mediating in vivo amelioration of Alzheimer disease (AD)-related memory impairment in experimental models. Published evidence suggests that the mechanisms through which HN exerts its cyto- and neuroprotective(More)
Interruption in the brain's blood supply leads to an ischemic condition, which is characterised by a depletion of energy phosphates and related failure of ionic pumps, increased extracellular potassium, neuronal depolarisation and release of excitatory amino acids, e.g. glutamate. The subsequent activation of N-methyl-d-aspartate glutamate receptors(More)
BACKGROUND To report toxicity and early clinical outcomes of hypofractionated simultaneous integrated boost (SIB) approach with Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT) as adjuvant treatment after breast-conserving surgery. METHODS Patients presenting early-stage breast cancer were enrolled in a phase II trial. ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA age > 18 years old,(More)
BACKGROUND Hypo-fractionated stereotactic radiotherapy (HSRT) is emerging as a valid treatment option for patients with single, large brain metastases (BMs). We analyzed a set of our patients treated with HSRT. The aim of this study was to evaluate local control (LC), brain distant progression (BDP), toxicity and overall survival (OS). METHODS From July(More)
