Two different DNA-based techniques, random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) and simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers, were used for fingerprinting kiwifruit genotypes and for detecting undesirable genetic variation in micropropagated plants. The fragments were scored as present (1) or absent (0), and those readings were entered in a computer file as a(More)
The purpose of this study was to estimate the median incubation time between human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection and onset of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), using three parametric models and six estimates of seroconversion time. Study subjects were 732 HIV-positive haemophiliacs enrolled in the Italian Registry of patients with(More)
PURPOSE To determine the reproducibility and accuracy of ultrasonographic (US) measurements of distances between the corneoscleral limbus and the insertion site of the medial (MR) or lateral rectus (LR) muscle compared with intraoperative measurements in patients with strabismus. METHODS One eye in each of 17 patients with postoperative secondary(More)
A patient with transfusion-dependent thalassemia was undergoing home intravenous desferrioxamine (DFX) treatment by means of a totally implanted system because of his poor compliance with the nightly subcutaneous therapy. Due to an accidental malfunctioning of the infusion pump, the patient was inadvertently administered a toxic dosage of the drug which(More)
PURPOSE To analyze the 6-year response of corneal topography to photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) for myopia and myopic astigmatism. METHODS Twenty patients (40 eyes) who had PRK using the Technolas Keracor 217C excimer laser platform were followed up to 6 years after surgery. The eyes were subdivided into three groups according to the preoperative(More)
Between 1982 and 1987, 45 patients suffering from painful symptomatology caused by peripheral vascular disease, not curable by medical or surgical therapy, were implanted with epidural neurological stimulators. Measurements used in evaluating the effectiveness of the method were pain control, walking distance, and development of trophic problems. With most(More)
PURPOSE To analyze the influence of specific combinations of corneal high order aberrations on the optical image quality of the cornea before and after photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) for low to high myopia and myopic astigmatism. METHODS Corneal topography was obtained for 80 eyes that underwent PRK using a scanning-spot excimer laser. The eyes were(More)
The purpose of this study was to estimate seroconversion time using different parametric methods and to assess their influence on the estimation of the incubation time between HIV infection and onset of AIDS. Study subjects were 712 HIV-positive haemophiliacs enrolled in the Italian National Registry of patients with congenital coagulation disorders.(More)
OBJECTIVE The outcome of crossover axilloaxillary bypass grafting in patients with stenosis or occlusion of the innominate or subclavian arteries was investigated. METHODS The study was designed as a retrospective clinical study in a university hospital setting with 61 patients as the basis of the study. Fifty-eight patients (95.1%) had at least two risk(More)
