This study analysed the relationship between semen quality and the postcoital test (PCT) outcome in 616 couples, especially focusing on the interactive effect of semen and cervical mucus quality. When PCTs performed in the presence of unfavourable mucus were excluded, a significant correlation was found between semen parameters and PCT outcome. In(More)
Thymic endocrine activity was assessed by a bioassay to determine the basal activity of thymulin (TH), a zinc dependent hormone, and its in vitro reactivation in two different age groups of patients with myasthenia gravis (MG). Before thymectomy, basal TH plasma levels were increased in patients over the age of 50 years. Plasma zinc levels were increased in(More)
Fluconazole susceptibility was tested in 385 clinical yeast isolates (285 Candida albicans, 38 C. glabrata, 31 C. tropicalis, 31 other Candida subsp.) using the agar disk diffusion test. Yeasts were collected from specimens obtained from outpatients (69) and inpatients (intensive care unit: 79 isolates, major burn unit: 31 isolates, hematology ward: 45(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Ascertainment bias (AB) indicates a bias of an evaluation centre in estimating the prevalence/incidence of a disease due to the specific expertise of the centre. The aim of our study was to evaluate classification of different types of dementia in new cases appearing in secondary and tertiary centres, in order to evidence possible(More)
Pseudotumor cerebri or idiopathic intracranial hypertension is a neurological syndrome characterized by signs and symptoms of intracranial hypertension without clinical or radiological evidence of infective or space occupying lesions. Iatrogenic factors are frequent; in particular, cases of pseudotumor cerebri associated with all-trans-retinoic acid(More)
The present paper describes an IC for Interbus Loop System developed in BCD technology third generation. The device, called LPC2, is an ASIC fieldbus intended to simplify the direct connection of analog and digital sensors and actuators. On the same chip a Receiver and a Transmitter are integrated to communicate with the Master and the other Slaves, a(More)
