The aim of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of antibodies to hepatitis C virus (anti-HCV) in health-care workers (HCW). Sera from 439 unselected HCW were assessed for anti-HCV by 2nd generation enzyme-linked immunoassay (ELISA) and anti-HBc by ELISA. Anti-HCV (+) sera were evaluated by line immunoassay (LIA) (LiaTeK, Organon). Anti-HCV proved(More)
The prediction of the small-scale spatial-temporal pattern of intense rainfall events is crucial for flood risk assessment in small catchments and urban areas. In the absence of a full deterministic modelling of small-scale rainfall, it is common practice to resort to the use of stochastic downscaling models to generate ensemble rainfall predictions to be(More)
The risk of contracting hepatitis B: (HBV) by health workers is widely accepted. In 1989 our Hepatology Service started a voluntary anti-HBV vaccination program, employing recombinant vaccine (SKF) by intramuscular route with a 0-1-6 month schedule after screening with antibody against the anti-core HBV antigen (AntiHBc Elisa Abbott). Initially, it was(More)
The Distributed Research Infrastructure for Hydro-Meteorological Study (DRIHMS) is a coordinated action co-funded by the European Commission. DRIHMS analyzes the main issues that arise when designing and setting up a pan-European Grid-based e-Infrastructure for research activities in the hydrologic and meteorological fields. The main outcome of the project(More)
Coastal zones are fragile and dynamic environments, most of the time largely urbanized and particularly vulnerable to natural hazards. Therefore, coastal areas are often exposed to high risk and shoreline position monitoring and modelling is required to mitigate it. In this context, satellite data are fundamental to provide synoptic and multitemporal(More)
The aim of this work was to evaluate the diagnostic reliability of fine needle cytology guided by ultrasonography in hepatic masses. One hundred and fifty nine patients underwent this procedure. The final diagnosis was confirmed by histology obtained by percutaneous biopsy, surgery, laparoscopy and necropsy or adequate clinical follow-up in 139 cases.(More)
The use of weather radars is relevant for both precipitation rate retrieval and data assimilation purposes because of their capability to provide measurements of dynamical and microphysical states at high temporal and spatial resolutions. Nevertheless, a wide range of uncertainty sources affects radar measurement and its products, challenging their(More)
