In this study, 44 primary or metastatic human ovarian tumours were tested for allelic deletions on the short arm of chromosome 11. Analysis of 12 polymorphic loci by Southern blotting evidenced loss of heterozygosity (LOH) in at least one locus in 41% of cases. Moreover, two hot spots of deletions were tentatively mapped on 11p13 and 11p15.5. Our results(More)
Emerging evidence suggests that combinatorial action of numerous biologically active compounds may be a valuable source in a variety of therapeutic applications. Several nutraceuticals have demonstrated to augment the efficacy of pharmacological approaches or provide physiological benefit to improve age-related decline. Recently, the possibilities of(More)
The high-affinity folate-binding protein (FBP) is primarily involved in the uptake of the 5-methyltetrahydrofolate, and its expression may be physiologically regulated by the intracellular folate content. The overexpression of FBP on the cell surface of ovarian carcinoma cells may be responsible for an increased folate uptake. We tested the hypothesis of(More)
In this study we propose a new method of representing unbiased perceptions of brands. Specifically a likelihood-based model simultaneously disentangles a major class of psychological bias affecting attribute-based perceptions, and obtains a dimensionality reduction of the problem, resulting in a two-dimensional map. Extant research, while recognizing the(More)
This study is based upon the dissection of 84 gracilis muscles in 42 cadavers. It allowed to emphasize the following features: 1-The proximal insertion of the muscle is a strong tendinous lamina arising from the anterior aspect of the pubis and from the ischio-pubic branch; the distal insertion to the tibia is common to both the gracilis and the(More)
