The effects of anisomycin (ANM) on newborn chicks have been studied with respect to brain protein synthesis, growth, EEG, toxicity, and several passive avoidance learning tasks. It was found that intracerebral ANM (80 nmol) gave a maximum inhibition of brain protein synthesis of 30%, while a combination of subcutaneous (10 mumol; 53 mg/kg) plus(More)
We reviewed the clinical and hemodynamic findings in 52 patients undergoing open mitral commisurotomy. 85% were female and the mean age was 31 + 9 years. Before operation 21% were in functional class II, 73% in class III and 56% in class IV. Pure mitral stenosis was found in 61% and congestive heart failure in 42%. The mitral valve area was less than 1 cm2(More)
Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is accompanied by oxidative stress, and protein oxidation is among the consequences of oxidative stress. We examined the plasma concentration of protein carbonyl groups (PC), a marker of protein oxidation, in a group of young subjects with AMI (45 men and 5 women; mean age 40.4 ± 4.8 yrs). We found a significant increase of(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the spontaneous reports of suspected adverse drug reactions, observed in paediatric patients in Sicily during the period between the 1st January 1995 and the 31st August 1997. The ADRs were classified according to the "WHO Programme for International Monitoring of Adverse Reactions to Drugs". On 1020 reports,(More)
In the last years the neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR) has been examined in cardiovascular disorders and in particular in coronary artery disease and acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Now we examined this parameter in subjects with juvenile myocardial infarction at the initial stage and after 3 and 12 months. We enrolled 123 young subjects (112 men and(More)
