A chloroquine-sensitive and a chloroquine-resistant strain of Plasmodium falciparum were examined in drug-free culture. Apart from the presence of knobs on the erythrocytes infected with sensitive parasites, no major differences between the two strains were observed. Nevertheless, the parasites of each strain show a variety of morphological features, some(More)
AIMS AND BACKGROUND Several anticancer drugs increase cell sensitivity to irradiation. Gemcitabine (2', 2' difluorodeoxycytidine) decreases the cellular dNTP pools and thus significantly increases the sensitivity to the DNA damaging effects of low-dose radiation. In this study we have investigated whether gemcitabine may play a role as radiosensitizer also(More)
This study was performed to test the hypothesis that conferring multiple drug resistance reduces cell susceptibility to irradiation and iron-stimulated lipid peroxidation. Multidrug resistant (PN1A) and parental drug sensitive (PSI-2) cell lines were exposed to ADP-Fe or Ascorbate-Fe complexes at 37 degrees C and to irradiation. Lipid peroxidation was(More)
Sixty-six patients suffering from suspected chlamydial conjunctivitis or keratoconjunctivitis underwent direct examination and culture procedures on specimens from conjunctival swabs and corneal scraping for detection of Chlamydia trachomatis. Patient blood samples were also screened for the presence of antichlamydia IgG and IgA antibodies. Eye positivity(More)
Leptospirosis, anthropo-zoonosis ubiquitously widespread, is a social and economic problem still to be solved. The experimental and therapeutic employment of many antibiotics has largely been tested "in vitro" and "in vivo". In the following research we tried to evaluate, by experimental "in vitro" method, the sensitivity difference of three serovar strains(More)
In recent years Chlamydia trachomatis has emerged as a significant cause of acute salpingitis and reproductory failure. In this study, 85 women suffering from primary infertility and 85 parous women as control group were screened for C. trachomatis genital infection by means of cell culture and antigen detection on genital samples as well as the detection(More)
We have observed peri-implant tissue specimens of endosseus dental implants subjected or not to occlusal load. All the specimens showed a large network of collagen microfibrils and proteoglycans filaments, strictly adherent to the endoprothesis. In some cases a layer of connective tissue surrounds the proteoglycan network only in some peri-implant areas.(More)
