Treatment of metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC) has improved significantly with the advent of agents targeting the mTOR pathway, such as temsirolimus and everolimus. However, their efficacy is thought to be limited by feedback loops and crosstalk with other pathways leading to the development of drug resistance. As CXCR4-CXCL12-CXCR7 axis has been(More)
NESSI: the New Mexico Tech Extrasolar Spectroscopic Survey Instrument is a ground-based multi-object spectrograph that operates in the near-infrared. It will be installed on one of the Nasmyth ports of the Magdalena Ridge Observatory (MRO) 2.4-meter Telescope. NESSI operates stationary to the telescope fork so as not to produce differential flexure between(More)
The branching ratio for the decay K + → π + ν ¯ ν is sensitive to new physics; the NA62 experiment will measure it to within about 10%. To reject the dominant background from channels with final state photons, the large-angle vetoes (LAVs) must detect particles with better than 1 ns time resolution and 10% energy resolution over a very large energy range.(More)
In the fixed energy environment of the e + e − collider DAΦNE, KLOE can measure the cross section of the process e + e − → hadrons as a function of the hadronic system energy using the radiative return method. At energies below 1 GeV, e + e − → ρ → π + π − is the dominating hadronic process. We report here on the status of the analysis of the process e + e(More)
—The branching ratio (BR) for the decay K + → π + ν ¯ ν is a sensitive probe for new physics. The NA62 experiment at the CERN SPS will measure this BR to within about 10%. To reject the dominant background from channels with final state photons, the large-angle vetoes (LAVs) must detect photons of energy as low as 200 MeV with an inefficiency of less than(More)
We have studied, with the KLOE detector at the DAΦNE Φ-Factory, the dynamics of the decay η → π + π − π 0 using η mesons from the decay φ → ηγ for an integrated luminosity L = 450 pb −1. From a fit to the Dalitz plot density distribution we obtain a precise measurement of the slope parameters. An alternative parametrization relates the π + π − π 0 slopes to(More)
The design of the large drift chamber for KLOE reeects the experiment's aim of studying CP-violation in K decays. The KLOE drift chamber is cylindrical in shape, with a radius of about 2 m and a length of about 3.3 m, providing adequate path for K L decays. Spherical end walls which hold the tension of about 50,000 wires, have to be transparent to photons(More)
de quatre populations provençales de Pamassius mnemosyne (L.) (Lepidoptera Papilionidae) : isolement et polymorphisme dans des populations « menacées » Résumé Quatre populations de P. mnemosyne, espèce montagnarde, ont été étudiées dans les massifs de Haute Provence. Deux sont situées à la périphérie des Alpes du Sud, à la montagne de Lure et à la montagne(More)
