INTRODUCTION Liquid preparations such as tinctures and 'bud extracts' of bilberry and lingonberry are typical products used in some European countries but they have not been widely studied to date. OBJECTIVE Our aim was to define a phytochemical profile in terms of phenolic compounds for liquid preparations of Vaccinium myrtillus L. (bilberry) and(More)
PURPOSE To test whole brain apparent diffusion coefficient histogram analysis as an alternative approach to visual score for the assessment of leukoaraiosis (LA). MATERIALS AND METHODS T2 and diffusion weighted images were obtained in 15 elderly patients. LA extension was assessed on T2 weighted images by two observers using a semiquantitative visual(More)
UNLABELLED The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of deep-brain stimulation of the subthalamic nucleus (STN) on regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) throughout the entire brain volume in patients with Parkinson's disease and to evaluate which of the brain areas showing an rCBF increase during STN stimulation related significantly to the(More)
The results on elemental composition of aerosol (PM10) sampled during 2011 in Piedmont region (Italy) are interpreted using meteorological data, Enrichment Factors (EF), chemometric processing by Principal Component Analysis (PCA), Factor Analysis (FA) and Hierarchical Cluster Analysis (HCA). Daily concentrations of about 30 elements were measured using(More)
At low ambient temperature the Kittiwake,Rissa tridactyla, increased its oxygen consumption, while lung ventilation remained unchanged. A changed breathing pattern (lower frequency and higher tidal volumes) and an increase in the lung O2-extraction was responsible for the observed decrease in the ventilatory requirement, which may be important because it(More)
