Direct measurement of hormones secretion and kinetics in glucose metabolism is not feasible in the clinical practice, being highly invasive. As their knowledge is important in the diagnosis of metabolic disorders, thanks to mathematical models based on non-invasive tests, estimation of hormones behaviour is obtained. Unfortunately, traditional model(More)
OBJECTIVE Total extracardiac cavopulmonary connection is an established procedure, but the best spatial arrangement remains controversial. On the basis of our clinical experience with total extracardiac cavopulmonary connection, we performed quantitative and qualitative flow analysis on total extracardiac cavopulmonary connection models simulating the two(More)
BACKGROUND Prosthetic heart valves can be associated to mechanical loading of blood, potentially linked to complications (hemolysis and thrombogenicity) which can be clinically relevant. In order to test such devices in pulsatile mode, pulse duplicators (PDs) have been designed and built according to different concepts. This study was carried out to compare(More)

The role of variable regions of HIV-1 gp120 in immune escape of HIV has been investigated. However, there is scant information on how conserved gp120 regions contribute to virus escaping. Here we have studied how molecular sequence characteristics of conserved C3, C4 and V3 regions of clade C HIV-1 gp120 that are involved in HIV entry and are target of the(More)
Today the risk factors related to the use of Video Display Terminals (VDT) are assessed by investigating the actual activities at the VDT through subjective questionnaires and/or quantitative measurements. Questionnaire outcomes are quite imprecise and seldom objective. Quantitative measurements (EMG recordings, electrogoniometers, motion analysis systems)(More)
