Exposure of the immature brain to general anesthesia is common. The safety of this practice has recently been challenged in view of evidence that general anesthetics can damage developing mammalian neurons. Initial reports on immature rats raised criticism regarding the possibly unique vulnerability of this species, short duration of their brain development(More)
Rapidly accumulating evidence indicates that clinically used general anesthesia causes massive, widespread neuroapoptotic degeneration in the developing mammalian brain. Susceptibility to anesthesia-induced neurotoxicity has been documented in rats, mice, guinea pigs, primates, and in this study, piglets; in short, anesthesia-induced developmental(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and acute lung injury (ALI) have low concentrations of disaturated-phosphatidylcholine and surfactant protein-B in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid. No information is available on their turnover. OBJECTIVES To analyze disaturated-phosphatidylcholine and surfactant protein-B turnover in(More)
Incidence of neuroepithelial Primary Brain Tumors (nPBT) varies, ranging from 7.3 to 11.6 cases/100,000/year across Europe. We present incidence and survival of nPBT in the Emilia-Romagna region (ER), Italy. This study is the largest in Southern Europe. Specialists in neurosurgery, neurology, neuroradiology, oncology, radiotherapy, genetics, and pathology(More)
