This paper describes a new real-time urban monitoring system. The system uses the Localizing and Handling Network Event Systems (LocHNESs) platform developed by Telecom Italia for the real-time evaluation of urban dynamics based on the anonymous monitoring of mobile cellular networks. In addition, data are supplemented based on the instantaneous positioning(More)

Acipimox (5-methylpyrazinecarboxylic acid 4-oxide) is a new lipolysis inhibitor that has a distant chemical relationship with nicotinic acid (NA). The tritiated compound (100 mg) is rapidly absorbed, peak plasma radioactivity being reached after 2 hr, with an almost total elimination unchanged in urine. A comparison of th antilipolytic activity of three(More)
There is evidence that the overproduction of apoB-100-containing lipoproteins by the liver is the underlying event in some forms of dyslipoproteinemia. This metabolic status is associated to an increased risk of developing premature coronary artery disease CAD. The conclusions from previous studies suggested that the availability to the hepatocytes of(More)
The antilipolytic drug acipimox (5-methylpyrazine-2-carboxylic acid 4-oxide) was given to male rats for 1 week at 500, 1000 and 2000 mg/kg/day and for 2, 6 and 7 months at 20, 100 and 500 mg/kg/day. The peroxisome proliferative effect was evaluated determining the activity of catalase and carnitine acetyltransferase, the rate of cyanide-insensitive(More)
This paper describes the synthesis of 6-carboxy derivatives of 6H-dibenzo[b,d]pyran. These compounds are among the most rigid structures related to clofibrate ever synthesized, which means they have very few possible conformations of relative stability compared with the many for clofibrate. Compound 6H-2-chloro-6-methyl-dibenzo[b,d]pyran-6-carboxylic acid(More)
BACKGROUND Proteinuria (P) is a early sign of inflammation and renal damage. It has an important role in the detection, diagnosis, and monitoring of renal disease in transplanted patients. The aim of this study was to examine the correlation between random urinary proteinuria/creatininuria index (P/CI) and 24-hour total protein excretion among stable renal(More)
