The effect on B-lymphocytes of butyric acid, a metabolic by-product formed by selected anaerobic bacteria of the subgingival plaque and present in mM amounts in the crevicular fluid of patients affected by adult periodontitis was investigated. A dose-dependent inhibition of both mitogenesis and Ig production in B-cells challenged with formalinized(More)
Short chain fatty acids (SCFA) are metabolic by-products of anaerobic bacteria present in the periodontal pocket. We examined the effect of SCFA on cultured human periodontal ligament fibroblasts (PDLF). PDLF were challenged with propionate, butyrate and succinate. A dose dependent inhibition of fibroblast adhesion and proliferation was observed. These(More)
A huge amount of data is everyday produced, even in many critical business sectors, in a distributed, collaborative way with the support of spreadsheet applications. The manual fusion of such data often yields errors: copy-paste operations, loss of alignment and coherency due to multiple spreadsheet copies or broken cross-spreadsheet links. These problems(More)
We present a platform that supports the creation of distributed data Mashups, implemented through the composition of multiple spreadsheets. The basic idea is to link cell ranges belonging to different spreadsheets in such a way to come up with a distributed spreadsheet. While such a behavior is already supported in private file spaces, our platform extends(More)
A huge amount of data is everyday managed in large organizations in many critical business sectors with the support of spreadsheet applications. The process of elaborating spreadsheet data is often performed in a distributed, collaborative way, where many actors enter data belonging to their local business domain to contribute to a global business view.

The level of chemo-radiotherapy that patients must undergo in the course of ABMT treatment causes a direct toxic mucous damage and serious medulla aplasia with subsequent neutropenia. Both factors significantly affect the appearance of oral complications. These represent one of the most frequent (congruent to 85%) postoperative problems. Particular(More)
