BACKGROUND Patients with Fabry disease (FD) show left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) mimicking hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) of sarcomeric origin and might benefit, if detected early, from specific enzyme replacement therapy. The prevalence of FD in patients with LVH of 13 mm or greater, screened using the leucocyte alpha-galactosidase A (α-gal A)(More)
Phospholipids are essential constituents of all living cell membranes. There are many analytical methods available for the quantitative and qualitative determination of phospholipids, but since these molecules lack chromophores, common absorbance based methods are of limited use. Beside mass spectrometry, some less specific approaches that are routinely(More)
Nanoparticles with prolonged residence time in bone constitute a valuable strategy for bone disease treatments. The aim of this work was to synthesise a simple nanoparticulate system exhibiting both anticancer and hydroxyapatite binding properties for potential bone cancer applications. The amphiphilic copolymer poly(γ-benzyl-glutamate)-block-poly(glutamic(More)
