Iron is an essential mineral nutrient for all living organisms, involved in a plurality of biological processes. Its deficit is the cause of the most common form of anemia in the world: iron deficiency anemia (IDA). This paper reviews iron content in various parts of 1228 plant species and its absorption from herbal products, based on data collected from(More)
Being confronting with two apparently similar cases of entero-vesical fistulas, but complete different concerning the etiopathogeny, surgical management and prognosis, we believe that both communities--urologists and general surgeons--must know how to manage such cases. The tumors involving two or many systems or organs make the surgeon's decision be(More)

INTRODUCTION Our objective was to evaluate the cause, diagnosis and management of foreign bodies in the urogenital tract reviewing a 7 years experience. MATERIALS AND METHODS From 2000 to 2007, 12 patients were treated in our department because of foreign bodies localized in the urogenital tract. We retrospectively analyzed the data regarding(More)
Identification of the origin of neoplastic pleural effusion is a major concern in lung pathology. This study followed the diagnostic role of a panel of antibodies that included calretinin, HBME1, D2-40, Ber-EP4, CK5/6, CEA and TTF1, in a total of 37 cases of pleural and lung cancer with tumor-type cytology, later confirmed by histopathology. For(More)
The main aim of this study was to investigate the properties of an AZ91 alloy coated with nanostructured hydroxyapatite (HA) prepared by radio frequency (RF) magnetron sputtering. The bioactivity and biomineralization of the AZ91 magnesium alloy coated with HA were investigated in simulated body fluid (SBF) via an in vitro test. Scanning electron microscopy(More)
New hydrazinecarbothioamides 5a–d bearing 5H-dibenzo[a,d][7]annulene moiety were synthesized using classical procedures. 1H-NMR analysis indicated the existence of two conformational isomers, a major axial (about 75 %) and a minor equatorial one (25 %), which are interconvertible by middle ring inversion. Cyclization of compounds 5a–d in NaOH solution(More)
We report a rare case of renal tumor--mucinous tubular and spindle cell carcinoma in a 65-year-old man. The tumor, located in the right kidney, was well circumscribed. Microscopically, the tumoral proliferation was composed of cuboidal cells arranged in tubules, with abrupt transition to spindle cell morphology in a myxoid stroma. Because of the favorable(More)
Photorefractive quantum wells operating by means of the Franz–Keldysh effect were designed to diffract a bandwidth of approximately 8 nm, nearly matching that of 100-fs pulses, with little dispersion in the diffracted pulses. Large diffraction bandwidths are engineered by adjustment of the well width of the quantum wells in a specific nonuniform(More)
