Availability and speciation of cadmium added to a calcareous soil under various managements
Potential risks for human health and adverse effects on soil quality caused by accumulation of cadmium (Cd) in soil at concentrations around or exceeding current European Union (EU) permitted limitsExpand

Genetically modified pigs produced with a nonviral episomal vector
Genetic modification of cells and animals is an invaluable tool for biotechnology and biomedicine. Currently, integrating vectors are used for this purpose. These vectors, however, may lead toExpand

Intrathecal NGF Administration Reduces Reactive Astrocytosis and Changes Neurotrophin Receptors Expression Pattern in a Rat Model of Neuropathic Pain
Nerve growth factor (NGF), an essential peptide for sensory neurons, seems to have opposite effects when administered peripherally or directly to the central nervous system. We investigated theExpand

Retention of arsenic on hydrous ferric oxides generated by electrochemical peroxidation.
Electrochemical peroxidation (ECP), an emerging remediation technology, with direct electric current applied to steel electrode and small addition of H2O2, was used to remove As(III) fromExpand

Heavy metal contamination of the soils used for stocking raw materials in the former ILVA iron-steel industrial plant of Bagnoli (southern Italy).
The total contents and the chemical and mineralogical forms of the metals Fe, Al, Cu, Co, Cr, Pb, Zn, Ni and Mn in the horizons of a soil profile, representative of an area devoted to stocking rawExpand

Remodelling of supraspinal neuroglial network in neuropathic pain is featured by a reactive gliosis of the nociceptive amygdala
Many brain areas participate to supraspinal control of nociception. In these regions, few studies have investigated the role of glial cells in supraspinal plasticity and the effect of 7‐dayExpand

A New Nerve Growth Factor-Mimetic Peptide Active on Neuropathic Pain in Rats
Analysis of the structure of nerve growth factor (NGF)-tyrosine kinase receptor A (TrkA) complex, site-directed mutagenesis studies and results from chemical modification of amino acid residues haveExpand

Multi‐transgenic pigs expressing three fluorescent proteins produced with high efficiency by sperm mediated gene transfer
Multi‐gene transgenic pigs would be of benefit for large animal models in medical, agricultural, and pharmaceutical applications; in particular for xenotransplantation, where extensive geneticExpand

Reactive astrocytosis-induced perturbation of synaptic homeostasis is restored by nerve growth factor
Reactive gliosis has been implicated in both inflammatory and neurodegenerative diseases. However, mechanisms by which astrocytic activation affects synaptic efficacy have been poorly elucidated. WeExpand

Discriminative behavioral assessment unveils remarkable reactive astrocytosis and early molecular correlates in basal ganglia of 3-nitropropionic acid subchronic treated rats
Reactive astrocytosis seems to be strongly implicated in the development and maintenance of inflammatory and neurodegenerative disorders. We design a new toxic model treatment with 3-nitropropionicExpand
