This idea comes from the experience made in using glutaraldehyde as biologic fixative employed for the first time in the fixation of the… (More)
Fasciola hepatica glutathione S-transferase (FhGST) was isolated from adult worms by glutathione agarose affinity chromatography. SDS-PAGE shows three proteins of M(r) ranging from 29-27.8 kDa. Western immunoblot analyses using SDS-PAGE separated adult worm extracts and probed with a rabbit anti-FhGST antiserum reveal two bands in the same M(r) range. Mice… (More)
Adjuvant chemotherapy is one of the latest and more promising modality of cancer treatment within the multidisciplinary approach to neoplasms. This paper illustrates the biological rationale as well as preliminary evaluation of its effectiveness for bladder carcinoma.
The authors report a case of juvenile vasculopathy in a homocystinuria patient. They point out that thromboembolism may be the only symptomatic expression of this genetically determined metabolic disease. Diagnostic approach and surgical therapy of the vascular lesions as well as medical therapy to prevent further complications are analysed. The opportunity… (More)
