In forensic medicine, there is a need for more sensitive biochemical markers for the post-mortem diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction. A study of the distribution of biochemical markers in different fluids is of great significance in post-mortem diagnosis, because their distribution depends on the location of tissue damage and release kinetics. The aim(More)
Cardiac disease is the most common cause of sudden death in Western nations. In forensic practice there is a need for more sensitive diagnostic methods for the postmortem diagnosis of myocardial damage. The aim of this study was to analyse the diagnostic efficacy of biochemical markers in cadaver fluids in conjunction with histological studies and the(More)
The aim of our study was to analyse several serum biochemical markers in order to evaluate the discriminant capacity of trace elements individually and jointly in drowning (seawater drowning and freshwater drowning) and their correlation with age, sex, postmortem interval, time in water and concentrations of the trace elements in the drowning medium.(More)
In airways, a proliferative effect is played directly by cholinergic agonists through nicotinic and muscarinic receptors activation. How tumors respond to aberrantly activated cholinergic signalling is a key question in smoking-related cancer. This research was addressed to explore a possible link of cholinergic signalling changes with cancer biology.(More)
Models of social influence have explored the dynamics of social contagion, imitation, and diffusion of different types of traits, opinions, and conducts. However, few behavioral data indicating social influence dynamics have been obtained from direct observation in "natural" social contexts. The present research provides that kind of evidence in the case of(More)
This article critically discusses the scientific status of transpersonal psychology and its relation to so-called supernatural claims. In particular, analysis focuses on Friedman’s (2002, 2013a) proposed division of labor between a ‘‘scientific’’ transpersonal psychology and ‘‘nonscientific’’ transpersonal studies. This paper demonstrates that despite(More)

Basic semen tests nowadays contain no variables that may allow to certify that a man is fertile. Starting from this premise it could be clinically very useful, for the diagnosis of male infertility, to evaluate a parameter that may be related to sexual maturity and be specific of the germinal tissue, such as the C4-lactate dehydrogenase isoenzyme (C4-LDH),(More)
We present a new agent-based model for the simulation of tax compliance and tax evasion behaviour (SIMULFIS). The main novelties of the model are the introduction of a ‘behavioural filter approach’ to model tax decisions, the combination of a set of different mechanisms to produce tax compliance (namely rational choice, normative commitments, and social(More)
OBJECTIVES Despite the great impact the migration has had in economic, social and health-related fields, and the repercussions of alcohol consumption on them, few data exist concerning the extent of alcohol consumption in migrant workers. The aims of this study were to identify workers with a hazardous drinking problem by means of a self-reported(More)
