A cross-sectional study was carried out in a population of North Italy to determine the prevalence of eight oncogenic human papillomavirus (HPV) types most commonly found in cervical carcinoma and to study the relationship between HPV DNA loads and severity of disease. A total of 597 cervical samples obtained from patients with pathological findings (n =(More)
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES Our goal was to prospectively determine the value of perfusion computed tomography (CT) in the quantitative assessment of tumor-related angiogenesis in cirrhotic patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty-seven patients met all the following inclusion criteria: 1) Child-Pugh class A or B liver(More)
Phosphaturic mesenchymal tumors that cause the paraneoplastic syndrome known as oncogenic osteomalacia are rare. The authors report on the case of a 57-year-old man with a history of osteomalacia and in whom was diagnosed a thoracic spine tumor at the T-4 level. Complete tumor resection was accomplished. The histological diagnosis was phosphaturic(More)
PURPOSE To assess the value of CT-perfusion in determining the quantitative vascularization features of early hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in cirrhotic patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 35 cirrhotic patients with single histologically proven HCC not exceeding 3cm in diameter underwent conventional triple-phase multidetector computed tomography(More)
To confirm that Mycobacterium tuberculosis chaperonin 10 (Cpn10) is secreted outside the live bacillus, infected macrophages were examined by electron microscopy. This revealed that the mycobacterial protein accumulates both in the wall of the bacterium and in the matrix of the phagosomes in which ingested mycobacteria survive within infected macrophages.(More)
Carcinoma showing thymic-like elements (CASTLE) is a rare tumor affecting thyroid and neck soft tissues, which has to be distinguished from squamous cell and anaplastic thyroid carcinoma, because it has a better prognosis. We report a new case of CASTLE which occurred in a patient submitted to total thyroidectomy with central neck dissection. The tumor(More)
