BACKGROUND Ship engine emissions are important with regard to lung and cardiovascular diseases especially in coastal regions worldwide. Known cellular responses to combustion particles include oxidative stress and inflammatory signalling. OBJECTIVES To provide a molecular link between the chemical and physical characteristics of ship emission particles(More)
We investigated the methylation status of mismatch repair gene hMLH1 in 80 primary human endometrial carcinomas (ECs) and in 30 metastatic lesions. It was correlated to the expression of hMLH1 protein, microsatellite instability (MSI) of ECs and to the well-known clinico-pathological variables of cancer. The hMLH1 promoter methylation was detected in 24 out(More)
We analyze the impact of an individual's tendency to worry on willingness to pay (WTP) for a protective measure. We report on the results of a controlled experiment with real objects at stake. Worry was measured with the Worry Domains Questionnaire, an instrument determining an individual's tendency to (non-pathological) worry. Although the loss probability(More)
Exposure to air pollution resulting from fossil fuel combustion has been linked to multiple short-term and long term health effects. In a previous study, exposure of lung epithelial cells to engine exhaust from heavy fuel oil (HFO) and diesel fuel (DF), two of the main fuels used in marine engines, led to an increased regulation of several pathways(More)

The present study was designed to investigate biomechanical and clinical changes in the mandibular complex by means of finite element analysis. An analytical model developed from human native mandibles was used for this model, CT image data were transferred to a computer, and an edge extraction program generated the cross-section of bone by specifying a(More)
