Objective. To compare the use of radiolabelled human monoclonal anti-TNF-a scintigraphy with clinical examination and MRI of hands and wrists joints in patients with active RA. Methods. Eight patients with active RA, 28-joint DAS (DAS-28)53.2 and a healthy volunteer underwent whole body and hand/wrist scintigraphy after the administration of anti-human(More)
Ossification/calcification around the medial femoral condyle has been known as Pellegrini–Stieda (PS) disease for almost 100 years. Little attention has been given to magnetic resonance (MR) imaging characteristics. Our purpose is to demonstrate the anatomy in the medial femoral compartment and imaging findings of PS disease, determining the sites and(More)

We investigated the juvenile development of the calanoid copepod Acrocalanus gracilis in the Timor Sea. The development was characterized by the calculation of stage-specific duration, median development time, moulting period duration, moult and growth rates. The morphometry of the experimental and wild populations were compared. Food concentrations in the(More)
Scientific computing is a multidisciplinary field that goes beyond the use of computer as machine where researchers write simple texts, presentations or store analysis and results of their experiments. Because of the huge hardware/software resources invested in experiments and simulations, this new approach to scientific computing currently adopted by(More)
The amount of information generated by biological researches has lead to a huge volume of biomedical data Internet-available. However, data are distributed into heterogeneous biological data sources, with little or even none information organization. Therefore, integration and exchange of data and scientific applications within and among organizations is a(More)
