Evaluation of the influence of the autonomic nervous system on the ventricular repolarization duration was carried out using beat-to-beat analysis of the time intervals between the peaks of the R and T waves (RTm). After pre-processing of digitized Holter ECG's, auto and cross spectrum analyses were applied to heart rate and repolarization duration(More)
Biomonitoring is currently performed at two levels, assessing exposure to pollutants and effects monitoring by bioassays. As an example for the first approach, vitellogenin (VTG) in male fish of Abramis brama as an endpoint for estrogen exposure is discussed. However, similar changes of VTG or VTG-like proteins in the hemolymph of mussels could not be(More)
A series of biochemical and behavioral experiments tested the hypothesis that anisomycin (ANI), a protein synthesis inhibitor, produced decrements in long-term memory by raising free tyrosine levels and by the accumulation of catecholamines (CAs) rather than by its primary effect on protein synthesis. We compared the effects of ANI and three catecholamine(More)
The uptake of [ring A-4-3H] colchicine and [ring C-methoxy-3H]colchicine has been compared in mice from 1 to 24 hr after administration. Less radioactivity was found in brain after administration of ring-labeled colchicine than after administration of the methoxy-labeled colchicine. Three hr after administration of ring-labeled colchicine, 5% of the label(More)
Economic globalization, together with heightened market competition and increasingly short product life cycles are motivating companies to use advanced manufacturing technologies. Use of high speed machining is increasingly widespread; however, as the technology is relatively new, it lacks a deep-rooted knowledge base which would facilitate implementation.(More)
Hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) is defined by the simultaneous occurrence of hemolytic anemia, thrombocytopenia, and acute kidney injury due to thrombotic microangiopathy (TMA) mainly occurring in renal and cerebral microvessels. Although the most common cause of HUS in children is Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli, atypical forms in which Shiga toxin(More)
The following is a list of references for Chapters 1 and 3-12 of Volume 2. The legal citations in Chapter 2 are included as footnotes to the chapter and are not repeated here. Citations listed as personal communications in the text are not listed here since the citation contains the information. Most of the references cited in the appendices are contained(More)
At the Orthopaedics and Traumatology Unit of the Palmanova Hospital, between 27 October 1989 and 31 December 2003 we performed 506 automated percutaneous nucleotomies according to Onik for the treatment of lumbar disc hernia. The survey of 50 reviewed cases after evaluation of the subjective and objective clinical pictures according to the Cabot method(More)
