Immune dysfunctions in endometriosis are widely documented but the effectiveness of immunotherapies for the management of the disease is still debated. Progress in this field has also been limited by the lack of an appropriate animal model of the disease. In this study, we created a model of endometriosis in immunocompetent mice to verify the ability of(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to compare the regeneration abilities of cultured bone marrow mesenchymal cells (cBMSC) and bone marrow mononuclear cells (BMMNC) with fibrin glue, saline solution and sham control in collagenase-induced tendinitis of the Achilles tendon in sheep. METHODS Six sheep were recruited randomly to each group: cBMSC, BMMNC,(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze determinants of pregnancy outcome, among HIV infected and uninfected intravenous drug users. STUDY DESIGN A total of 315 pregnant current intravenous drug users, IVDU (151 HIV infected and 164 HIV uninfected subjects) were referred to the Center for Pregnant Drug Addicts of the Mangiagalli Clinic, Milan, Italy, for internatal care and(More)
BACKGROUND In recent years, combination antiretroviral therapy has substantially improved the prognosis of human immunodeficiency virus type-1 (HIV-1) infection. However, at present, information regarding the effects of these regimens during pregnancy is limited. METHODS Side-effects, vertical transmission rate and neonatal outcome associated with(More)
Computer assisted human creativity encodes human design decisions in algorithms allowing machines to produce artwork variants. Based on this automated production, one can leverage collective understanding of beauty to rank computer-generated artworks according to their average likability. We present the use of Software Product Line techniques for(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine whether preanalytic and analytic factors affect evaluation of the urinary protein-to-creatinine (UPC) ratio in dogs. SAMPLE 50 canine urine samples. PROCEDURES The UPC ratio was measured to assess the intra-assay imprecision (20 measurements within a single session), the influence of predilution (1:10, 1:20, and 1:100) for urine(More)
BACKGROUND The authors investigated the clinical role of tumor burden (TB) in patients with Hodgkin lymphoma, relating this parameter to most of the current clinical and prognostic factors and to the best predictive multifactorial models. METHODS The volume of TB at diagnosis was measured directly from the initial staging computed tomography scans in 351(More)
To determine the temporal sequence of pregnancy-induced changes in insulin action and secretion, awake midpregnant (11-12 days) and late pregnant (19-20 days) rats underwent a two-step euglycemic hyperinsulinemic or a hyperglycemic clamp study after a 24-h fast. During euglycemia, insulin-stimulated increments in glucose uptake and clearance in midpregnant(More)
BACKGROUND The ADVIA 120 is an automated laser cell counter widely used in veterinary medicine. Although specific software for equine samples is available and validated, only a few reports have been published comparing the ADVIA 120 with other methods for equine hemogram evaluation. OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to compare the hematologic(More)
The inhibitory activity of mangiferin (50 mg/kg/die and 100 mg/kg/die) on Cryptosporidium parvum was evaluated in a neonatal mouse model and its activity was compared with that of paromomycin (100 mg/kg/die). At 4 days of age, neonatal Swiss conventional outbred mice were experimentally infected by oral administration of 104 oocysts/animal of C. parvum and(More)
