Chemotherapeutic management of ovarian cancers is a difficult task as these neoplasms show significant differences in chemosensitivity, even if they share identical clinicopathological features. The present study was undertaken to investigate the prognostic and predictive role of p53 alterations in ovarian cancer. To this end, using different technical(More)
Lung cancer is strictly associated with tobacco smoking. Tumours developed in non-smoking subjects account for less than 10% of all lung cancers and show peculiar histopathological features, being prevalently adenocarcinomas. A number of genetic data suggest that their biological behaviour may be different from that of lung tumours caused by smoking,(More)
The branched M33 antimicrobial peptide was previously shown to be very active against Gram-negative bacterial pathogens, including multidrug-resistant strains. In an attempt to produce back-up molecules, we synthesized an M33 peptide isomer consisting of D-aminoacids (M33-D). This isomeric version showed 4 to 16-fold higher activity against Gram-positive(More)
The research of new antimicrobial compounds has an impact on public health and economy of many countries. Given the great problem of bacterial resistance, the study of new molecules that bypass this mechanism is of great importance. Trypsin is an enzyme necessary for gut physiology and the peptides it forms could be of great interest to the pharmaceutical(More)
