Interleukin 6 (IL-6) is a pleiotropic cytokine that is highly expressed in response to ischemia and reperfusion. It has dichotomous roles in the heart, functioning both as an inflammatory mediator as well as a protective agent. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of IL-6 deficiency on the expression of apoptotic regulatory proteins under both(More)
INTRODUCTION Standard pre-operative diagnosis of nodular goitre is not always conclusive. The decision about nodular goitre surgery is increasingly based on molecular methods. The aim of the study was to determine BRAF T1799A mutation and KRas proto-oncogene mutation, and the analysis of RASSF1A promoter methylation level in cytological material obtained(More)
The first case of a female neonate born from an in vitro fertilization with embryo transfer (IVF-ET) and intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) (IVF-ET (ICSI) with two histologically different tumours (craniopharyngioma and hepatoblastoma) is described. Anti-neoplasmatic therapy was abandoned due to the significant extent of the disease (craniopharyngioma,(More)
An optimized digital shaping filter has been developed for the GERDA experiment which searches for neutrinoless double beta decay in 76Ge. The GERDA Phase I energy calibration data have been reprocessed and an average improvement of 0.3 keV in energy resolution (FWHM) at the 76Ge Q value for 0νββ decay is obtained. This is possible thanks to the enhanced(More)
