Rhodobacter sphaeroides RV cultivation and hydrogen production were studied in a one- and two-stage chemostat using lactic acid as substrate. Light saturation was observed when light intensities equal to or above 10 klx were applied. Under light saturation, the two-stage chemostat appeared to be very effective for hydrogen production, allowing complete(More)
To evaluate the treatment efficacy of uterine adenomyosis using MRgFUS as a mini-invasive therapy. Twenty-three patients affected by symptomatic uterine adenomyosis (11 focal and 7 diffuse forms), diagnosed using MRI, were included in this study. Eighteen out of 23 were submitted to MRgFUS. All junctional zone more than 12 mm in width were considered to be(More)
MR imaging was employed in 232 patients with traumatic or degenerative lesions of the shoulder. MR diagnosis was compared with arthrotomic findings in 19 cases, and with arthroscopic results in 3 cases. MR technique is here presented and the choice of scanning planes is discussed, together with the sequences of image acquisition and with the features of the(More)
Twelve patients were studied by means of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) in order to demonstrate either loco-regional recurrence of central chondrosarcomas or degenerative evolutions of exostoses. MRI findings were compared with plain film, scintigraphy, and Computed Tomography. MRI showed loco-regional recurrences by demonstrating their site, extent, and(More)
A correct evaluation of site and extension of the talocalcaneal coalition inducing biomechanical ankle alterations is very important for planning therapy. Four male patients were submitted to computed tomography (CT) and three of them were also examined by means of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). In one patient, studied by CT only, a bilateral(More)
The objective of this work was to evaluate the potential of diagnostic imaging in the identification, localization, and characterization of soft-tissue inflammatory myofibroblastic tumors (IMTs) of limbs with correlation to differential diagnosis and therapy. From a retrospective analysis of 324 histologically verified soft-tissue lesions of limbs and(More)
MTBE was instilled in 6 cases of lithiasis (1 intrahepatic, 5 giant common bile duct stones following EPT). The nasobiliary route (3 cases) and a percutaneous biliary drain (3 cases) were used for this purpose. Complete stone dissolution was achieved in four cases. In the other two, volume reduction was sufficient to allow spontaneous elimination after EPT.(More)
Carotid plaque morphology studied by ultrasound has been used to classify 3 types of bifurcation plaques, producing less than 60% stenosis on duplex scanning: Type A, the homogeneous, highly echogenic plaque; Type B, the heterogeneous (mainly echogenic, B-1 or mainly echolucent, B-2) plaque; Type C, the complex plaque with irregular surface, echogenic(More)
MR imaging was performed on 38 patients with suspected malignant soft-tissue tumors of the extremities. MR diagnostic accuracy was compared with that of other methods. All patients underwent surgical control. In 7 cases MR imaging was employed to demonstrate the tumor response to antiblastic local perfusion. Lesion identification, extension, compartmental(More)
The human IL-1 beta coding sequence derived from a cDNA library was inserted into two different plasmid expression vectors, pSM214 and pSM308, which promote the synthesis of recombinant products intracellularly and exocellularly, respectively. The hybrid constructs pSM261 and pSM320 were obtained. Bacillus subtilis SMS118 was transformed with these plasmids(More)
