Bronislava Papadatou, Fiammetta Bracci, Daniela Knafelz, Antonella Diamanti, Maria Sole Basso, Fabio Panetta, Filippo Torroni, Valerio Nobili, Giuliano Torre
Health (Health) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/health.2014.612184
Abstract: We report the case of a 14-year-old boy affected by ulcerative colitis (UC) and acute thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) with simultaneous onset. UC diagnosis was based on symptoms, endoscopy and histology findings. ITP diagnosis was based on the normal bone marrow megakaryocyte count, the presence of platelet associated IgG and the absence of splenomegaly. Medical treatments including high doses of steroids, intravenous immunoglobulins were ineffective on ITP course, while UC course was mild for several months after the onset. When colonic inflammation became untractable not responsive at steroids and immunosuppressive agents, colectomy resolved both pathologies.

Favero, Daniela;Scheffer-Basso, Simone Meredith;Carneiro, Cerci Maria;
Revista Brasileira de Zootecnia , 2009, DOI: 10.1590/S1516-35982009000400003
Abstract: the objective of this study was to compare two populations of crioula alfalfa cultivars, selected by the length of the seedling second internode (crioula-li, long internode = 2.5 cm; crioula-si, short internode = 1.5 cm) with alfagraze cultivar in order to verify the seedling morphology value for the selection of more prostrate plants. the plants were grown individually in pots in a semi-protected environment and harvested at 74, 104, 134, 164, 194 and 224 days. crioula populations varied in terms of height, leaf area, root volume, dry matter yield, and the crioula-li population outnumbered that of crioula-si. for height, length of internode and primary stem, alfagraze (45.1 cm, 2.1 cm and 16.7 cm) was similar to crioula-si (37.6 cm, 2.3 cm and 18.2 cm); however, the leaf area (2.028 cm2) and dry matter yield (20.3 g) did not differ from those of crioula-li (2.021 cm2, 21 g). the alfagraze cultivar surpassed the crioula population in terms of procumbency, crown diameter and crown stem number. at the flowering stage, the crioula-li cultivar had total stem number (61/plant) higher than alfagraze (47/plant) and crioula-si (41/plant) cultivars. the length of the seedling internode is a promising marker for the selection of alfalfa, being a predictive factor for plant height, stem number, root volume and leaf area, and can be useful in the alfalfa breeding.
The association between prune belly syndrome and dental anomalies: a case report
Basso Maria Daniela,Favretto Carla Oliveira,Cunha Robson Frederico
BMC Oral Health , 2012, DOI: 10.1186/1472-6831-12-56
Abstract: Background Prune belly syndrome is a rare condition produced by an early mesodermal defect that causes abdominal abnormalities. However, the literature indicates that disturbances related to ectodermal development may also be present. This is the first case report in the literature to suggest that dental abnormalities are part of the broad spectrum of clinical features of prune belly syndrome. Because the syndrome causes many serious medical problems, early diagnosis of abnormalities involving the primary and permanent dentitions are encouraged. Case presentation The authors report the clinical case of a 4-year-old Caucasian boy with prune belly syndrome. In addition to the triad of abdominal muscle deficiency, abnormalities of the gastrointestinal and urinary tracts, and cryptorchidism, a geminated mandibular right central incisor, agenesis of a mandibular permanent left incisor, and congenitally missing primary teeth (namely, the mandibular right and left lateral incisors) were noted. Conclusion This original case report about prune belly syndrome highlights the possibility that dental abnormalities are a part of the broad spectrum of clinical features of the syndrome. Therefore, an accurate intra-oral clinical examination and radiographic evaluation are required for patients with this syndrome in order to provide an early diagnosis of abnormalities involving the primary and permanent dentitions.

Revista Brasileira de Zootecnia , 2009, DOI: 10.1590/S1516-35982009000900004
Abstract: this study was carried out with the objective of describing the aerial and underground organs of birdsfoot trefoil [lotus corniculatus (s?o gabriel and ars-2620 cultivars)] and big trefoil [lotus uliginosus (maku cultivar)]. the plants were cultivated in pots and harvested at 150 and 210 days after sowing. stems, leaves and roots were prepared in according to conventional anatomical techniques. the anatomical structures of l. corniculatus and l. uliginosus differed in terms of pith cell integrity, starch content in the parenchyma root cell and underground stem cortex. the leaves were amphistomatic, with phenolic idioblasts, small vascular bundles and few conducting elements. the underground system was diffuse, with adventitious shoots that grew in two directions, had no cataphylls, emerged from the ground, and gave rise to aerial stems. the morphological characteristics of the shoot system of both species matched the recent descriptions of soboles.

PLOS ONE , 2014, DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0097592
Abstract: Adrenomedullin (AM) is a multifunctional peptide endowed with various biological actions mediated by the interaction with the calcitonin receptor-like receptor (CLR), which couples to the receptor activity-modifying proteins 2 or 3 (RAMP2 or RAMP3) to form the functional plasma membrane receptors AM1 and AM2, respectively. In this study, we investigated for the first time the expression and localization of AM, CLR, RAMP2 and RAMP3 in human thymic tissue from newborns and in primary cultures of thymic epithelial cells (TECs) and thymocytes. Immunohistochemical analysis of thymic tissue showed that both AM and RAMP2 are abundantly expressed in the epithelial cells of medulla and cortex, blood vessels and mastocytes. In contrast, RAMP3 could not be detected. In cultured TECs, double immunofluorescence coupled to confocal microscopy revealed that AM is present in the cytoplasmic compartment, whereas RAMP2 could be detected in the cytoplasm and nucleus, but not in the cell membrane. At variance with RAMP2, CLR was not only present in the nucleus and cytoplasm of TECs, but could also be detected in the cell membrane. The nuclear and cytoplasmic localizations of RAMP2 and CLR and the absence of RAMP2 in the cell membrane were confirmed by western-blot analysis performed on cell fractions. AM, RAMP2 and CLR could also be detected in thymocytes by means of double immunofluorescence coupled to confocal microscopy, although these proteins were not present in the whole thymocyte population. In these cells, AM and RAMP2 were detected in the cytoplasm, whereas CLR could be observed in the cytoplasm and the plasma membrane. In conclusion, our results show that the AM system is widely expressed in human thymus from newborns and suggest that both AM1 receptor components CLR and RAMP2 are not associated with the plasma membrane of TECs and thymocytes but are located intracellularly, notably in the nucleus.
Legal Concepts and Multilingual Contexts in Digital Information  [PDF]
Daniela Tiscornia, Maria Teresa Sagri
Beijing Law Review (BLR) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/blr.2012.33010
Abstract: Analysis of legal documents cannot be reduced to their linguistic expression. When dealing whit legal texts a distinction should be made between the linguistic form (normative statement) and the content (norm). Norms are conceived as the interpreted meaning of linguistic contexts (partitions in a legal text, fragments of judicial decisions, etc). In the interpretative process, legal practitioners make reference to an external system of concepts that can be assumed, even if not universal, at least shared by a large social and cultural community. As a consequence, legal interpretation and legal conceptualization are strongly influenced by cultural, social and political factors and changes in meaning of legal concepts occur within a synchronic localization in different cultures and within a diachronic evolution process of the environment in which they are created. This dynamic nature of legal knowledge poses serious problems in communicating legal information, and even more in the realm of digital communication, where, in order to manage knowledge across national borders, there is a strong demand of shared vocabularies embedding a shared understanding of legal concept. This paper aims at showing how lexical/terminological resources and conceptual structures, such as ontologies, can be constructed by means of the innovative tools provided by ICT, like the Semantic Web languages, the computational linguistic and the ontology engineering techniques. Such semantic resources may have a strategic role in representing meaning evolution and in investigating social and cultural influences in linguistic uses and, as a further goal, solutions offered by ICT for bridging the gap between form and content can also provide innovative visions of theoretical issues.
Does Coping Mediate Personality and Behavioural Problems Relationship?  [PDF]

Psychology (PSYCH) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2014.59123
Abstract:

The aim of the present study is to investigate the applicability of two models of the influence of coping on personality and behavioral problems (the additive and mediational one). This study investigate comparatively the explanation models of coping and health in adolescents using the theoretical and methological studies of Baron and Kenny (1986), Rudolph, Denning and Weisz (1995) and Gomez (1998) of influential models. Participants were 558 adolescents (44.3% boys and 55.7% girls) aged between 11 to 18 years old (M = 13.92, SD = 1.45), from Barcelona (Spain). Data show significant correlation between avoidance coping, anxiety trait and behavioral problems and support partial mediation on their relationship. No mediation was found for approach coping, extraversion and behavioral problems so only the additive model was supported. In conclusion, this study indicates that: the explaining model of personality, coping and behavioral problems can vary depending on the coping strategies involved in the equation; avoidance coping can be described as the way anxiety trait influences behavioral problems; personality can be describe as a coping resource; and avoidance coping increases the influence of personality on behavioral problems by two ways: one, by the cumulative effect; and two, by the mediational influence that it exerts on the relationship of anxiety trait and behavioral problems.

Vaccination with Trypanosoma rangeli modulates the profiles of immunoglobulins and IL-6 at local and systemic levels in the early phase of Trypanosoma cruzi experimental infection

Memórias do Instituto Oswaldo Cruz , 2011, DOI: 10.1590/S0074-02762011000100005
Abstract: in america, there are two species of trypanosoma that can infect humans: trypanosoma cruzi, which is responsible for chagas disease and trypanosoma rangeli, which is not pathogenic. we have developed a model of vaccination in mice with t. rangeli epimastigotes that protects against t. cruzi infection. the goal of this work was to study the pattern of specific immunoglobulins in the peritoneum (the site of infection) and in the sera of mice immunized with t. rangeli before and after challenge with t. cruzi. additionally, we studied the effects triggered by antigen-antibodies binding and the levels of key cytokines involved in the humoral response, such as il-4, il-5 and il-6. the immunization triggered the production of antibodies reactive with t. cruzi in peritoneal fluid (pf) and in serum, mainly igg1 and, to a lesser magnitude, igg2. only immunized mice developed specific igg3 antibodies in their peritoneal cavities. antibodies were able to bind to the surface of the parasites and agglutinate them. among the cytokines studied, il-6 was elevated in pf during early infection, with higher levels in non-immunized-infected mice. the results indicate that t. rangeli vaccination against t. cruzi infection triggers a high production of specific igg isotypes in pf and sera before infection and modulates the levels of il-6 in pf in the early periods of infection.

Abstract: The 6th Regional Symposium of the IFAA held in Milano, from 1 to 5 July 2009, follows the 5th Regional meeting in Ferrara (2005) and the 9th International Symposium held in Zagreb (2007). The Symposium was jointly organized by the University of Milano-Bicocca, Department of Geological Sciences and Geotechnologies, and by the University of Genova, Dip.Te.Ris. Geologists and paleontologists of the University of Genova have been studying coralline-rich outcrops of the Tertiary Piedmont Basin since the end of the XIX Century (G. Rovereto, M. Airoldi, S. Conti, V.I. Mastrorilli), producing the scientific descriptions of dozens of new species, the types of which are housed in the Genova Dip.Te.Ris.This volume represetn the abstract book and the field trip guide book edited for the symposium.
