The N nutrition index (NNI, defined as the actual shoot N concentration relative to a reference critical value, Nref) is a valuable tool to analyze the N nutrition status of crops. We present empirical evidence obtained for a range of forage grass species and environmental conditions with the aim to contribute to verify the NNI as a tool to diagnose N(More)
External hydrocephalus (EH) is a benign clinical entity in which macrocephaly is associated with an increase in volume of the subarachnoid space, especially overlying both frontal lobes, and a normal or only slight increase in volume of the lateral ventricles. Several pathogenic hypotheses have been proposed but the most accredited theory seems to be(More)
A phosphorus (P) fertilization study was conducted in the southeast of the Buenos Aires province in Argentina, to determine the effect of P fertilizer rate and sampling date on microbial biomass P, and of organic and inorganic P extractable with 0.5M NaHCO3, in a soil under pasture. In addition, Bray-P, dry-matter production and P uptake were measured. Soil(More)
Atypical hyperplasia and lobular carcinoma in situ are rare proliferative breast lesions, growing inside ducts and terminal ducto-lobular units. They represent a marker of increased risk for breast cancer and a non-obligate precursor of malignancy. Evidence available on diagnosis and management is scarce. They are frequently found incidentally associated(More)
This study aimed to concentrate glycosyl hydrolases produced by Trichoderma harzianum P49P11 by ethanol precipitation. The variables tested besides ethanol concentration were temperature and pH. The precipitation with 90% (v/v) ethanol at pH 5.0 recovered more than 98% of the xylanase activity, regardless of the temperature (5.0, 15.0, or 25.0 °C). The(More)
The increased use of imaging modalities in the last years has led to a greater incidence in depicting abdominal incidental lesions. In particular, "incidentalomas" of the kidney are discovered in asymptomatic patients or patients who suffer from diseases not directly related to the kidneys. The aim of this paper is to provide the radiologist with a useful(More)
During their development, cancers acquire several functional capabilities, which are defined as the hallmarks of cancer. For a deeper understanding of the hallmarks of cancer, and, consequently, improved personalized patient care, diagnostic tests must be multilayered and complex to identify the relevant underlying processes of cancer development and(More)
Cystic echinococcosis (CE), also known as "hydatid disease" (HD), is a zoonotic infection caused by the larval stage of Echinococcus granulosus, which infects humans as intermediate hosts through the orofecal route. Carried by the intestinal venous blood, the embryos released by the eggs of the tapeworms can reach every organ, especially the liver, turning(More)
To investigate the impact of a scoring system (Tree) on inter-reader agreement and diagnostic performance in breast MRI reading. This IRB-approved, single-centre study included 100 patients with 121 consecutive histopathologically verified lesions (52 malignant, 68 benign). Four breast radiologists with different levels of MRI experience and blinded to(More)
Imaging plays a major role in the diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up of breast cancer. Findings that require further assessment will be detected both at screening and curative mammography. Most findings that are further worked up tend to yield benign diagnoses. Consequently, there is an ongoing search for new tools to reduce recalls and unnecessary(More)
