Within the baking industry, the control of dough properties is required to achieve final product quality and consistency. Traditional methods for dough testing are slow and off-line and do not provide fundamental rheological information. There is therefore a need for the development of fast and on-line instruments capable of providing relevant data for(More)
Sixty-one children with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus and twenty-three healthy subjects were investigated. The patients with diabetes mellitus aged 4 to 20 years (13.4 +/- 4.0) had had diabetes for 1 to 16 years (6.4 +/- 3.5). There were no cardiovascular risk factor other than diabetes. Patients received no medication other than insulin. The(More)
We have used a preliminary formulation of a bioadhesive in an experimental model of epikeratoplasty in rabbits. The adhesive, termed mussel adhesive protein (MAP), is a repeating decapeptide polymer that is the natural adhesive substance produced by the common blue mussel (Mytilus edulis) and is used here in conjunction with an enzymatic cross-linking(More)
The viscoelastic properties of dough are of great interest in the baking industry as they affect the quality of the final product. In this work, the viscoelastic properties of dough were investigated using ultrasonic techniques and then compared with traditional methods. It has been shown that ultrasonics provides a non-destructive, rapid and low cost(More)
A case is reported of left ventricular hypoplasia associated with anisosplenia. Even though congenital heart malformations are frequently found in cases of splenic anomalies, the association of polysplenia with hypoplastic left heart syndrome is extremely rare. The existence in addition of partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection of the right pulmonary(More)
The progress of malolactic fermentation in red wines has been monitored by using ultrasonic techniques. The evolution of ultrasonic velocity of a tone burst 1MHz longitudinal wave was measured, analyzed and compared to those parameters of oenological interest obtained simultaneously by analytical methods. Semi-industrial tanks were used during measurements(More)
In this work, the wheat flour properties are investigated using ultrasound techniques. Moreover, the flour samples were also characterized by means of well established techniques such as protein content, Alveograph and Mixolab®. A set of 35 dough samples, made of wheat flours with diverse physical and quality properties, were studied. The obtained results(More)
The aberrant left pulmonary artery is a rare disease, producing severe respiratory failure in the neonatal period and early infancy. The diagnosis is easy and mainly done by X-ray. Although the main diagnostic procedure continues to be an elective angiography in the main pulmonary artery, the diagnosis may be confirmed by a contrast computerised axial(More)
