BACKGROUND AND AIM Dyslipidemia is one of the main risk factors for atherosclerosis, usually the underlying cause of cardiovascular diseases which are the major cause of morbidity and mortality in developed countries. The aim of this study was to assess the effects and the advantages of a combined dietary supplementation with PUFA n-3, vitamin E, niacin and(More)
We report on the collective integration technology of vertically aligned nanowires (NWs). Si and ZnO NWs have been used in order to develop a generic technological process. Both mineral and organic planarizations of the as-grown nanowires have been achieved. Chemical vapour deposition (CVD) oxides, spin on glass (SOG), and polymer have been investigated as(More)
Benign esophageal masses are rare. The authors present a rare case of bulky pedunculated hemolymphangioma of the esophagus in a two-year-old female. The symptomatology was characterized by acute episodes of dyspnea associated with the protrusion of the mass from the mouth. The mass was removed endoscopically.
BACKGROUND In order to better define the pathogenic role of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) drainage catheters in postoperative patients, we comparatively analyze the clinical course of device and non-device-related meningitis. METHODS This is an observational, partially prospective, study on consecutive adult patients who developed meningitis after undergoing(More)
The role of folate supplementation in reducing hyperhomocystinemia in patients on dialysis has been reported, but the optimal dose of folate is still unknown. The aim of the present study was to investigate whether greater than 5 mg/day folate supplementation provides any additional effect on plasma homocysteine (HCY) levels. The study was prospective,(More)
The analytical performance of the Stratus Folate assay for intra-erythrocyte folate determination in normal subjects and in patients affected by folate-related diseases was compared with that of the radioassay (DPC) routinely employed by us. Folate concentrations were measured in freshly obtained EDTA whole blood from 100 subjects. Haemolysis was performed(More)
