BACKGROUND The oncoproteins of human papillomavirus (HPVs) directly effect cell-cycle control. We hypothesize that regulatory and cell cycle protein expression might be additionally modified in the cervix of HIV/HPV co-infected women. METHODS We analyzed the expression of Rb, p27, VEGF and Elf-1 transcriptor factor by immunohistochemistry in 163(More)
Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) operate in a highly heterogeneous and dynamic scenario. On one hand, there is a wide range of potential applications for WSNs, each one with different features and requirements and defining a different mission for the sensor nodes to accomplish. On the other hand, the execution context regarding the devices, networks and the(More)
BACKGROUND Minichromosome maintenance proteins (MCM) are highly expressed in actively replicating cells. The need for biological markers for cervical carcinoma and its precursor lesions is emerging. Our main aim was to determine the immunohistochemical expression of MCM-2 in HIV-positive and -negative dysplastic cervical specimens. METHODS(More)
