Fusarium graminearum is an important pathogen causing Fusarium head blight (FHB) on wheat and barley and Fusarium ear rot (FER) on maize, and harvested grains often are contaminated with trichothecenes such as deoxynivalenol (DON) and nivalenol (NIV) that are a major health and food safety concern due to their toxicity to humans and farm animals. In this(More)
A dynamic phantom has been developed to allow for measurement of 3D cell survival distributions and the corresponding distributions of the RBE-weighted dose (RBED) in the presence of motion. The phantom consists of two 96-microwell plates holding Chinese hamster ovary cells inside a container filled with culture medium and is placed on a movable stage.(More)
Fusarium circinatum is the causal agent of pitch canker disease on numerous Pinus spp. This aggressive fungus may infect pine seed cryptically and, therefore, can easily be spread long distances by the seed trade. F. circinatum has recently been listed as a quarantine organism in numerous countries throughout the world, which prompted the development of a(More)
We have measured fragmentation cross-sections of Ar projectile nuclei at beam energy of 400 A MeV using experimental set-ups with plastic nuclear track detectors and different targets. In this paper total charge changing cross-sections and elemental fragmentation cross-sections for the production of fragments with charges ZF > or = 7 in interactions with H,(More)
TRiP One of the most important aims of each treatment planning system is the ability of delivering a target conformal dose distribution. Developed and successful used within the heavy ion therapy pilot project, the TReatment plannIng for Particles (TRiP)[1] is characterised by the capability of delivering exact results in relatively short time, making it(More)
Clear cell acanthoma, firstly described by Degos as "an epidermal tumor with a particular aspect", although quite a rare lesion, raised an important interest because it may be easily confused with other dermatologic lesions, in the absence of a histopathological examination. Its clinical aspect is of a solitary nodule, with a red-brown varying color, with a(More)
