We evaluated colour vision in 35 dry-cleaners exposed to perchloroethylene (PCE) and in a paired number of controls matched for sex, age, alcohol consumption and cigarette smoking. A subclinical colour vision loss, mainly in the blue-yellow range, was present in dry-cleaners. This effect was related to PCE exposure levels, and appeared at environmental(More)
The biological behaviour of canine cutaneous mast cell tumours (MCTs) is highly variable. The aim of this study was to investigate whether intratumoral microvessel density (IMVD), as an indicator of angiogenesis, was predictive of biological behaviour in MCTs of canine skin, and to relate this parameter to histological grade and other histomorphological(More)
Perchloroethylene exposure in 28 dry-cleaning establishments and in 25 homes occupied by dry cleaners in Modena, Italy, was investigated. Environmental air samples and alveolar air samples from dry cleaners (n = 60) and from their family members (n = 23) were collected. The degree of perchloroethylene on the dry-cleaning premises varied widely from(More)
The Patnaik histological grade is a good method for the prediction of long-term mast cell tumour behaviour but it is influenced by subjective inter-observer variations and intratumoral heterogeneity. The present study evaluated each of the histopathological parameters used to formulate Patnaik's grade in terms of prognosis and tested whether they have a(More)
