PURPOSE Acute renal colic is one of the most anguishing forms of pain in humans. We hypothesized that TENS is an effective pain treatment in patients with acute renal colic. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 100 patients with acute flank pain and suspected renal colic consented to participate in our study. Paramedic 1 recorded baseline parameters at the(More)
This work investigated Cu-induced changes in photosynthetic activity in contrasting populations of Silene paradoxa L. A metallicolous Cu-tolerant population and a non-metallicolous sensitive population were grown in hydroponics and exposed to different CuSO4 treatments for different times. Copper accumulation, MDA concentrations, and several photosynthetic(More)
We investigated how the adaptation to metalliferous environments can influence the plant response to biotic stress. In a metallicolous and a non-metallicolous population of Silene paradoxa the induction of oxidative stress and the production of callose and volatiles were evaluated in the presence of copper and of the PAMP fungal protein cerato-platanin,(More)
Copper is one of the most important pollutants in mine-contaminated soils. This study tests the response in a sensitive population vs a tolerant one of the model species Silene paradoxa in order to understand the general mechanisms of tolerance at the micromorphological and ultrastructural level. Two populations of Silene paradoxa were grown in hydroponics(More)
