Most plant viruses rely on vector organisms for their plant-to-plant spread. Although there are many different natural vectors, few plant virus-vector systems have been well studied. This review describes our current understanding of virus transmission by aphids, thrips, whiteflies, leafhoppers, planthoppers, treehoppers, mites, nematodes, and zoosporic(More)
BACKGROUND Women suffering from recurrent urinary tract infections (rUTIs) are routinely treated for asymptomatic bacteriuria (AB), but the consequences of this procedure on antibiotic resistance are not fully known. The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of AB treatment on antibiotic resistance among women with rUTIs. METHODS The study(More)
Per primi nel 1982 Fairley e Birch ipotizzarono e dimostrarono che nella glomerulonefrite sono presenti nell’urina emazie dismorfiche e di volume ridotto. L’esame della morfologia delle emazie, pertanto, indirizza il clinico verso la localizzazione della sede del sanguinamento, aiutandolo nell’inquadramento diagnostico della patologia in atto.

Asymptomatic bacteriuria (ABU) is a common clinical condition that often leads to unnecessary antimicrobial use. The reduction of antibiotic overuse for ABU is consequently an important issue for antimicrobial stewardship and to reduce the emergence of multidrug resistant strains. There are two issues in everyday urological practice that require special(More)
In 1975, Flitter et al. proposed a Doppler technique for evaluating CSF shunt patency. Owing to the presence of many false positives, a new method of investigation is proposed in order to achieve more reliable results by using the Doppler technique after air has been injected into the shunt reservoir. Ninety patients with a CSF shunt were examined. Fifty(More)
