The aim of this study was an evaluation of the possibility of bone regeneration in connection with implant placement, using a new bioresorbable membrane (Guidor Matrix Barrier) used previously in periodontal tissues regeneration. The study compared the bone regeneration obtained around Bonefit-ITI implants inserted in rabbit tibia using Guidor membranes,(More)
Venus is completely covered by a thick cloud layer, of which the upper part is composed of sulphuric acid and some unknown aerosols. The cloud tops are in fast retrograde rotation (super-rotation), but the factors responsible for this super-rotation are unknown. Here we report observations of Venus with the Venus Monitoring Camera on board the Venus Express(More)
A method for the determination of the (6R)- and (6S)-stereoisomers of leucovorin using electrokinetic chromatography (EKC) in the affinity mode has been developed. Bovine serum albumin (BSA) is used as a run buffer additive to incorporate enantiomeric selectivity into the system. Protein-wall interactions are minimized by using a poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG)(More)
CONGENITAL NYSTAGMUS (CN) is a disorder of ocular motility which is characterised by a more or less regular rhythmic sequence of conjugate eye movements alternately in both directions of gaze. The techniques currently available for recording eye movements are the infra-red (IR) reflection technique (YOUNG, 1963), DC coupled electronystagmography (WEBER and(More)
The curing time dependence of the tear energy, tensile strength and ultimate extension ratio of a range of characterized elastomeric impression materials was investigated. This variation of tensile strength and ultimate extension ratio was correlated with the development of the network structure. The tear energy showed only minor changes as the curing(More)
Congenital nystagmus (CN) is a disorder of the ocular motility characterized by oscillatory eye movements preventing the correct fixation of a target. Many typical waveforms of eye position recordings have been recognized and classified in the literature: in jerk CN a slow phase eye movement is followed by a fast phase, giving rise to a typical saw-tooth(More)
A single step, scalable and green strategy has been developed to obtain reduced graphene oxide layers in water dispersion through nanosecond laser pulse irradiation of carbon targets. The layers spontaneously migrate at the water-air interface, forming sheets of several tens of micrometers and show intense ultraviolet photoluminescence. This unique(More)
We investigate the use of Terahertz (THz) Time Domain Spectroscopy (TDS) as a tool for the measurement of the index dispersion of multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNT) in polypropylene (PP) based composites. Samples containing 0.5% by volume concentration of non-functionalized and functionalized carbon nanotubes are prepared by melt compounding technology.(More)
Two varieties of grapes, white grape and red grape grown in the Campania region of Italy were selected for the study of drying characteristics, moisture diffusion, quality changes (colour) and shrinkage behaviour. Comparisons were made with treated and untreated grapes under constant drying condition of 50 C in a conventional drying system. This temperature(More)
In this paper we present a new instrument for measurements on long bones. The instrument is based on the use of a digital coordinatometer-goniometer connected to an optical collimator: such device allows angles as well as lengths to be measured. With regard to observing procedures, an innovative method for bone axis location by points has been applied. It(More)
