CD40 is a 50 kDa molecule, a member of the tumor necrosis factor/nerve growth factor receptor family. It is expressed on B cells, monocytes, dendritic cells and various malignant cells. While the critical relevance of this molecule in T cell-dependent B cell activation is already established, the biological role of CD40-CD154 interaction in(More)
The current study focuses the analysis on the possible relationship between HLA allele frequency and clinical outcome of melanoma in a population of 382 Italian patients, as compared with 203 ethnically matched controls. In a 3-year follow-up study, results showed significant differences between groups of patients selected according to clinical stage,(More)
Megalencephaly (MEG), or enlargement of the brain, can either represent a familial variant with normal cerebral structure, or a rare brain malformation associated with developmental delay and neurological problems. MEG has been split into two subtypes: anatomical and metabolic. The latter features a build-up inside the cells owing to metabolic causes.(More)
Predisposition to Crohn disease (CD) seems to be genetically determined but, though several reports on the matter, the association between HLA antigens and the disease is still controversial. PCR-SSP high resolution typing in 107 CD patients, and in subgroups selected according to clinical features, showed a positive association with the rare haplotype(More)
Focal dermal hypoplasia (FDH; Goltz-Gorlin syndrome; OMIM 305600) is a disorder that features involvement of the skin, skeletal system, and eyes. It is caused by loss-of-function mutations in the PORCN gene. We report a young girl with FDH, microphthalmos associated with colobomatous orbital cyst, dural ectasia and cystic malformation of the spinal cord,(More)
Noonan-like syndrome with loose anagen hair (NSLH), also known as Mazzanti syndrome, is a RASopathy characterized by craniofacial features resembling Noonan syndrome, cardiac defects, cognitive deficits and behavioral issues, reduced growth generally associated with GH deficit, darkly pigmented skin, and an unique combination of ectodermal anomalies.(More)
