We consider a system of nonlinear partial differential equations with stochastic dynamical boundary conditions that arises in models of neurophysiology for the diffusion of electrical potentials through a finite network of neurons. Motivated by the discussion in the biological literature, we impose a general diffusion equation on each edge through a(More)
Conventional treatments of broncho-pulmonary aspergillosis are often ineffective and result in associated side-effects. Terbinafine (a new allylamine derivative), although as active against Aspergillus in vitro as amphotericin B and itraconazole, is less effective in rodent models because of a rapid hepatic first-pass effect. As terbinafine is metabolized(More)
After a two-level selection, 141 blood donors living in Milan, Italy, were analyzed for their content of plasma and urinary trichloroacetic acid (TCA) and trichloroethanol (TCE). Environmental levels of exposure to trichloroethylene (TRI) and tetrachloroethylene (PER) through drinking water and air were also measured. The plasma TCA levels were in the range(More)
Between January 1989 and February 1993, 52 patients were evaluated at Niguarda Hospital for lung or heart and lung transplantation. Of the 35 that entered the waiting list, a total of 19 were transplanted (14 at other institutes before our surgical programme became operative, and 5 at our hospital). Recipient selection and evaluation criteria, and timing of(More)
