Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) prognostication requires additional biologic markers. miRNAs may constitute markers for cancer diagnosis, outcome, or therapy response. In the present study, we analyzed the miRNA expression profile in a retrospective multicenter series of 258 DLBCL patients uniformly treated with chemoimmunotherapy. Findings were(More)
INTRODUCTION The use of piezoelectric units on patients with pacemakers is generally discouraged, although there is no empirical evidence of the effects of current piezoelectric units on pacemaker activity in vitro. METHODS Four piezoelectric units (Piezosurgery3, Piezotome, Piezotome2, and Variosurg) and 2 magnetostriction units (Piezotome and(More)
Cyclin-dependent kinase (Cdk)7, the catalytic subunit of the Cdk-activating kinase (CAK) complex has been implicated in the control of cell cycle progression and of RNA polymerase II (RNA pol II)-mediated transcription. Genetic inactivation of the Cdk7 locus revealed that whereas Cdk7 is completely dispensable for global transcription, is essential for the(More)
HSP90 may be a favorable target for investigational therapy in breast cancer. In fact, the HSP90 inhibitor, 17AAG, currently has entered in phase II clinical trials as an anticancer agent in breast and other tumors. Since HSP90 inhibition leads to global depletion of oncogenic proteins involved in multiple pathways we applied global analysis using gene(More)
An experiment was conducted on naive human subjects to measure the time benefits on finger reaction times produced by the offset of a central fixation point 200 ms before the appearance of a target stimulus in the periphery. Subjects produced a shift advancement of manual reaction times. Simultaneously, the event-related potentials were recorded. The gap(More)
The intermediate filament protein nestin is predominantly expressed in some stem/progenitor cells and appears to be a useful molecular tool to characterise tumours originating from precursor cells of neuroectodermal and mesenchymal lineages. Leydig cells originate in the adult testis by differentiation from stem cells and express a variety of neural and(More)
Golden hamsters were infected orally with viable cysticerci of Taenia solium obtained from infected pigs. After two weeks of infection implanted scolices of about 4 mm were found in exactly the same number as the number of ingested cysticerci. At six weeks 66% of the ingested cysticerci were found as implanted tapeworms (average size: 5.7 cm). At ten weeks(More)
An experiment was conducted in naive human subjects to measure the time benefits of the latencies of saccadic eye movements to peripheral targets when the offset of a central fixation point precedes the switching on of the peripheral target by 200 ms. Naive subjects produced a shift advancement of the eye movement latencies to the targets with respect to(More)
AIM To assess the effects of six electronic apex locators (EALs) on pacemaker function in vitro. METHODOLOGY Six EALs (Mini Apex Locator®, Dentaport ZX®, Novapex®, Raypex5®, Root ZX mini®, and Justy II®) were tested for electromagnetic interference (EMI) with one pacemaker (Saint Jude Medical). The pacemaker, with a single electrode, was immersed in a(More)
A major determinant of the geographic distribution of a species is expected to be its physiological response to changing abiotic variables over its range. The range of a species often corresponds to the geographic extent of temperature regimes the organism can physiologically tolerate. Many species have very distinct life history stages that may exhibit(More)
