Information on responses of higher organisms to climate change is dominated by events in spring. Far less is known about autumnal events and virtually nothing about communities of microorganisms. We analyzed autumnal fruiting patterns of macrofungi over the past 56 years and found that average first fruiting date of 315 species is earlier, while last(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the nuclear matrix protein 22 (NMP22) test in the management of patients after transurethral resection (TUR) of recurrent transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder. METHODS The NMP22 test was performed in 137 patients: in 42 patients, a bladder recurrence was detected by cystoscopy and histologically confirmed; 95 patients were(More)
INTRODUCTION Pure squamous carcinoma (SCC) is a rare entity in western regions. The management of SCC still remains similar to that of transitional carcinoma, although it is a different entity. A retrospective review can be helpful in understanding the biological behavior of this uncommon vesical tumour. MATERIAL AND METHODS Nineteen consecutive cases of(More)
BACKGROUND Sexual function has been detected in a large sample of Italian patients affected by LUTS suggestive of BPH, by means of the ICS-Sex questionnaire. RESULTS A number of 877 questionnaires were returned completely filled and were analyzed. Fifty percent of patients declared that their sexual life was significantly affected by their urinary(More)
An analysis of fungal phenology in a recent issue of PNAS suggested that there has been an extension of the mushroom fruiting season across Europe (1). The extended season effect is particularly strong in the United Kingdom (1, 2) and was attributed to greater climatic changes in that country. Here, we contend that the extended season conclusion may be(More)
