It is well known that immune efficiency is frequently deteriorated in elderly people. The age-diminished antibody response to T-cell dependent antigens, such as influenza virus antigens, may explain the low protection offered by influenza vaccination in the elderly population.

We describe two unrelated patients with Hallervorden-Spatz, disease characterized by prominent facio-bucco-lingual dyskinesia. Acanthocytosis and retinitis pigmentosa were additional findings. Brain MRI showed the typical 'tiger's eye' image of the globus pallidus. This phenotype closely resembled the so-called HARP syndrome (hypoprebetalipoproteinemia,(More)
Changes in the concentrations of bioactive gibberellins and abscisic acid in the cambial region of white poplar (Populus alba L.) were investigated in 1-year-old plants, to highlight how these phytohormone signals are modulated in response to water deficit. Plants were cultivated in pots outdoor and, at the time of maximum cambial growth (T 0), irrigation(More)
