Only few studies are available on sleep disorders in Angelman syndrome (AS), a neurodevelopmental disorder with several behavior disturbances. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of sleep disorders in a relatively large group of AS subjects, compared to that of age-matched controls. Forty-nine consecutive parents of patients with AS (26(More)
In total, 70 patients were enrolled into this phase II study, to evaluate the activity of the pegylated liposomal doxorubicin (PLD) and gemcitabine (GEM) combination in recurrent ovarian cancer patients. PLD, 30 mg m(-2), was administered on day 1 by 60' i.v. infusion, followed by GEM, 1000 mg m(-2), given by 30' i.v. on days 1 and 8; cycles were repeated(More)
We assayed methyl-p-hydroxyphenyllactate esterase (MeHPLAase) activity in 63 cases of primary laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma. MeHPLAase activity did not show any correlation with oestrogen, progesterone and epidermal growth factor (EGF) receptor levels. No significant relationship was found between MeHPLAase activity and age, sex, tumour site, T(More)
The aim of this study was to analyse the clinical significance of Cathepsin D (Cath D) content as determined by an immunoradiometric assay in a series of primary untreated ovarian cancers from 162 patients. In addition, immunohistochemical analysis of Cath D was also performed on a subset of 86 tumours. Cath D levels were distributed in an asymmetrical way(More)
The primary goal of surgical oncology is to obtain a tumour resection with disease-free margins. Transoral robotic surgery (TORS) for surgical treatment of head-neck cancer is commensurate with standard treatments. However, the likelihood of positive margins after TORS is up to 20.2% in a recent US survey. The aim of this study is to evaluate the efficacy(More)
