BACKGROUND Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease slowly progresses to end-stage renal disease and has no effective therapy. A pilot study suggested that the somatostatin analogue octreotide longacting release (LAR) could be nephroprotective in this context. We aimed to assess the effect of 3 years of octreotide-LAR treatment on kidney and cyst growth(More)
Utilizing the SON (Silicon On Nothing) process, highly performant double gate devices have been processed in a planar configuration. Two families of devices were obtained (High Performance and Low Power) with very high Ion/Ioff trade off. Drive currents of 1954/spl mu/A//spl mu/m (Ioff = 283 nA//spl mu/m) and 1333/spl mu/A//spl mu/m (Ioff = 1 nA//spl mu/m)(More)
Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease (ADPKD) is the most common hereditary kidney disease. We analysed PKD1 and PKD2, in a large cohort of 440 unrelated Italian patients with ADPKD and 203 relatives by direct sequencing and MLPA. Molecular and detailed phenotypic data have been collected and submitted to the PKD1/PKD2 LOVD database. This is the(More)
In this paper, the authors presented an integration strategy for metal gate GAA transistors made by SON process using poly-gate replacement through contact hole (PRETCH). Double gate (DG) type MOSFETs, including planar DG gate-all-around and fin-FETs are today known as the best candidates for the ultimate sealing of the logic CMOS technologies on silicon.(More)
Psychometric tests, visual reaction time tests and electroencephalograms were performed in 26 cirrhotic patients without overt portal-systemic encephalopathy and in 26 healthy individuals. Cirrhotics performed poorly, compared with controls, on intelligence, learning and memory, perceptual motor and spatial tests. Non-alcoholic scored lower than alcoholic(More)
Pathophysiology of adverse reactions occurring during myelography with non-ionic contrast agents, such as iopamidol, seem related to their direct action on the nervous system. The authors try a multivariate approach, involving neurophysiological, neuropsychological and neurochemical parameters on a pilot group of twelve subjects. Any possible change in the(More)
