FMD was measured in(More)

The early diagnosis by USG gives the Gynecologist some advantages in: a) avoiding the operation in those cases of small mass; b) making a pfammenstiel incision in the surgical operation; c) trying a(More)
Overexpression of efflux transporters, in human cells, is a mechanism of resistance to drug and also to chemotherapy.
