Chronic infection with hepatitis C virus (HCV) is related to monoclonal B-cell lymphoproliferative disorders including a benign monoclonal lymphoproliferation such as type II mixed cryoglobulinemia, and B-cell non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas (NHL). Monoclonal B cells in both mixed cryoglobulinemia and HCV-associated NHL frequently express an idiotype encoded by the(More)
Aarskog-Scott Syndrome (AAS) is an X-linked disorder characterised by short stature and multiple facial, limb and genital abnormalities. A gene, FGD1, altered in a patient with AAS phenotype, has been identified and found to encode a protein with homology to Rho/Rac guanine nucleotide exchange factors (Rho/Rac GEF). However, since this original report on(More)

An anatomical study of uterine malformations has become quite frequent in obstetrics and gynaecology because of the increasing use of corrective surgery. More than 100 cases were reviewed and the authors discuss some examples in order to present all kinds of uterine malformations which can be detected by ultrasound together with hysterosalpingography. A(More)
Interactions of Cu(2+), Zn(2+), and Pd(2+) ions with the antitumor compound mitomycin C (MMC) have been investigated by UV-vis, circular dichroism, and (13)C NMR spectroscopy. While Zn(2+) and Cu(2+) neither interacted with MMC nor catalyzed the formation of mitosenes, Pd(2+) induced strong MMC spectral modifications, suggesting the formation of a major(More)
