B-RAF V600E mutation is frequently observed in several tumors, including papillary thyroid carcinomas (PTCs), where it is considered of potential diagnostic and prognostic value. The reported prevalence of B-RAF mutation in PTCs in different Italian populations varies from 14% to 69%. The authors investigate the prevalence and utility of the B-RAF V600E(More)
Undetermined thyroid cytology precludes any definitive distinction between malignant and benign lesions. Recently several classifications have been proposed to split this category into two or more cytological subcategories related to different malignancy risk rates. The current study was performed retrospectively to investigate the results obtained(More)
We present a new multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) transmission scheme for generic phase-shift-keying (PSK) modulations in the multi-user (MU) downlink channel, where Constant Envelope Precoding (CEP) is combined with concepts of interference exploitation. In the proposed approach, multi-user-interference (MUI) is treated as a resource for increasing(More)
MacroPRL can be due either to anti-PRL autoantibodies IgG (IgG-macroPRL) or other PRL containing molecules without IgG-PRL immuncomplexes (nIgG-macroPRL), the composition of which is not fully clarified. The aims of this study were: a) testing a new immunometric assay, capable of recognising IgG-macroPRL, b) looking for any biological and/or clinical(More)
