Modern embedded systems manage sensitive data increasingly often through cryptographic primitives. In this context, side-channel attacks, such as power analysis, represent a concrete threat, regardless of the mathematical strength of a cipher. Evaluating the resistance against power analysis of cryptographic implementations and preventing it, are tasks(More)
BACKGROUND Methylation of MGMT promoter has been identified as a favourable predictive factor of benefit from XRT/TMZ → TMZ. Patients with non-resectable glioblastoma (GBM) generally exhibit a poor prognosis, even after XRT/TMZ. Few data are available concerning the predictive value of MGMT promoter methylation in this population. METHODS This is an(More)
PURPOSE Mowat-Wilson syndrome (MWS) is a genetic disease characterized by distinctive facial features, moderate to severe intellectual disability, and congenital malformations, including Hirschsprung disease, genital and eye anomalies, and congenital heart defects, caused by haploinsufficiency of the ZEB2 gene. To date, no characteristic pattern of brain(More)
BACKGROUND The intracranial localization of large artery disease is recognized as the main cause of ischemic stroke in the world, considering all countries, although its global burden is widely underestimated. Indeed it has been reported more frequently in Asians and African-American people, but the finding of intracranial stenosis as a cause of ischemic(More)
