Lung disease and Pseudomonas aeruginosa (P. aeruginosa) airway colonization represent a major cause of morbidity and mortality in cystic fibrosis (CF). Human beta-defensin (hBD)-1 is believed to play an important role in mucosal innate immunity in the lung. This study aimed to investigate whether three single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the(More)
Intensity-modulated radiotherapy has been suggested as the technique of choice for locally advanced head and neck cancer patients. In the last decade, most radiotherapy departments have focused their efforts in programs to implement this technique. We report our experience for parotid gland and constrictor muscle sparing with intensity-modulated(More)
Based on radiobiology evidence, hypofractionated radiotherapy has the potential of improving treatment outcome in prostate cancer patients. In this study, we evaluated the safety, in terms of acutetoxicity, of using moderate hypofractionated radiotherapy delivered with Helical Tomotherapy (HT) to treat prostate cancer patients. Between December 2012 and(More)
Non-performing loans (NPLs) that turn into bad debt or dead loans are a problem for Italy's banking industry. To some extent, this is unavoidable. Previously, Italian banks have given the impression that their risk controls for loans are unsuccessful because the banks own a disproportionate amount of NPLs. These banks are now paying more attention to the(More)
AIMS To evaluate long-term late side effects, clinical and biochemical relapse in non-metastatic prostate cancer patients treated with dose escalation, from 74 to 78 Gy, by means of three dimensional conformal radiation therapy. MATERIALS AND METHODS Clinical data of 125 patients with prostate cancer who underwent three-dimensional conformal radiation(More)
This work deals with the dosimetric features of a particular phenolic compound (IRGANOX 1076®) for dosimetry of clinical photon beams by using electron spin resonance (ESR) spectroscopy. After the optimization of the ESR readout parameters (namely modulation amplitude and microwave power) to maximise the signal without excessive spectrum distortions, basic(More)
