Lorusso,Fabrizio;
Universum (Talca) , 2008, DOI: 10.4067/S0718-23762008000200007
Abstract: the article aims to underline the historical path, the scope as well as the theoretic and explanatory limitations of the most wide spread conceptions in latinamericanist academy and its social analysis about international insertion of latin america and its relations with the rest of the world. as a reference frame, mainstream interpretations of the processes of globalization are used, which have been shaping different schools of thought or theories that can be classified in transformation, novelty, continuity and return, being the last two ones the most considered in the latin american studies field and even in the public opinion of the region.
El origen del “siglo americano” y el cambio hegemónico entre el Reino Unido y los Estados Unidos en las relaciones com América Latina
Fabrizio Lorusso
Barbarói , 2007,
Abstract: Este trabajo caracteriza las décadas del despegue industrial de los Estados Unidos subrayando cómo éste se dio muy tempranamente en el siglo XIX y se reflejó, asimismo, en las relaciones dentro del hemisferio occidental. Se analiza la etapa del “paso del testigo” entre las dos hegemonías, Inglaterra y los Estados Unidos, tanto en la economía y la política mundial, como en las poliédricas relaciones con América Latina. Finalmente, se definen los rasgos del periodo de la Gran Depresión y la década siguiente, lo que funciona como marco histórico de la subsiguiente fase alta de la hegemonía estadounidense. Abstract This article characterizes the decades of the industrial development of the United States, explaining how it happened so early in the XIX century and has reflected, also, on the relationships in the east hemisphere. It is analyzed the stage called “token ring” between the two hegemonic nation, England and the United States of America in the economic field and world’s policy and also in the poliedric relationships with Latin America. Finally, it is defined the characteristics of the Big Depression Period and the following decade, what works as a historical symbol of the sequence phase of high north American hegemony.
Bevacizumab in the treatment of HER2-negative breast cancer
Vito Lorusso
Biologics: Targets and Therapy , 2008,
Abstract: Vito LorussoOncologic Institute, Vito Fazzi Hospital, Lecce, ItalyAbstract: Angiogenesis has a clear and definite role in the breast cancer progression process, making antivascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) therapies an attractive option for the treatment of metastatic breast cancer (MBC). Bevacizumab is a potent humanized monoclonal antibody to VEGF, which has shown regression of breast cancer in preclinical and clinical setting, either alone or in combination with cytotoxic treatment. Additionally, bevacizumab potentially increases the effectiveness of other anticancer therapies through the normalization of tumor vasculature, reduction of intratumoral pressure and improved tumor oxygenation. Phase 1/2 trials showed significant antitumor effects of bevacizumab in MBC, in particular in tumors not expressing HER2 receptor. A first phase 3 trial in pre-treated MBC patients showed better response rates but no survival benefit from the addition of bevacizumab to capecitabine. However, in two phase 2 trial in first-line setting in patients with MBC, bevacizumab improved progression-free survival in combination with weekly paclitaxel in comparison to paclitaxel alone or in combination with 3-weekly docetaxel in comparison with docetaxel alone, respectively. Bevacizumab in combination with taxanes seems to be a highly effective first-line treatment for MBC patients. Future research will investigate bevacizumab in the neoadjuvant or adjuvant setting, where even more potential may exist for these patients.Keywords: bevacizumab, breast cancer, HER2, HER2-negative breast cancer
La interpretación de la relación externa en América Latina: Los patrones de continuidad y retorno en el análisis social de la región
Fabrizio Lorusso
Universum : Revista de Humanidades y Ciencias Sociales , 2008,
Abstract: El artículo trata de evidenciar el camino histórico, los alcances y, asimismo, los límites teóricos y explicativos de las concepciones más difundidas en parte de la academia latinoamericanista y su análisis social acerca de la inserción internacional de América Latina y sus relaciones con el resto del mundo. Se utilizan, como marco de referencia, las principales interpretaciones de los procesos de la globalización que han ido conformando distintas "escuelas de pensamiento" o teorías que podemos clasificar en transformación, novedad, continuidad y retorno, siendo estas últimas las más apreciadas en los Estudios Latinoamericanos e incluso en la opinión pública de la región. The article aims to underline the historical path, the scope as well as the theoretic and explanatory limitations of the most wide spread conceptions in latinamericanist academy and its social analysis about international insertion of Latin America and its relations with the rest of the world. As a reference frame, mainstream interpretations of the processes of globalization are used, which have been shaping different schools of thought or theories that can be classified in transformation, novelty, continuity and return, being the last two ones the most considered in the Latin American Studies field and even in the public opinion of the region.

Fabrizio Lorusso
El Cotidiano , 2011,
Abstract: El presente artículo intenta trazar una rese a crítica de las notas periodísticas publicadas en páginas de Internet de medios informativos en lengua italiana que han tratado el tema del culto a la Santa Muerte en México. Los artículos considerados contienen materiales suficientes para arrancar con una discusión crítica y, asimismo, gracias a la literatura académica disponible en espa ol y en inglés, además de los trabajos de campo realizados por el autor, se van a proponer aclaraciones y explicaciones acerca de algunos elementos característicos de esta devoción popular mexicana, aún poco estudiada y comprendida, sobre todo en el exterior.

Authenticity and conservation state of art works: the market and auction houses & Presentation of the historical-technical Journal “Conservation Science in Cultural Heritage"
Salvatore Lorusso
Conservation Science in Cultural Heritage : Historical Technical Journal , 2008,
Abstract: The title Authenticity and conservation state of art works: The market and auction houses mirrors the particular status of confusion and instability in which the auction houses – find themselves – nowadays. It is an international situation of existential and economic crisis in which humanity appears to be excited and schizophrenic. This lecture is part of a series all dedicated to various aspects of art, with a particular focus on the great Italian artist Giorgio Morandi. A good selection of his works is currently displayed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Giorgio Morandi conceived art as a “practice of silence”, where his “still life” functioned as a filter to observe the world outside his small cloistered art studio. By emphasizing the importance of weight and gravity with grace and attention, this artist can therefore teach us how important it is to judge a piece of art not only subjectively – giving greatest relevance to the satisfaction of individual aesthetical standards – but also objectively – where the techniques and the materials utilized assume the greatest significance. This allows the estimator to estimate correctly their economic and financial value. The second part of the lecture consists in the presentation of the historical-technical journal Conservation Science in Cultural Heritage. It represents an emblematic gathering of experts, symbolizing therefore a necessary encounter among people with different cultural backgrounds, experiences and skills. They meet to address and discuss issues related to their common field of study, the Cultural Heritage sector. This jolts, as it can be imagined, American art critics. They often lack social criticism showing them to be too focused on aesthetics and elegance of form. The consequent question arises: is this really true?

Artistic heritage and social capital in intercultural society Patrimonio artistico e capitale sociale nella società interculturale
Piero Lorusso
Conservation Science in Cultural Heritage : Historical Technical Journal , 2011, DOI: 10.6092/issn.1973-9494/2697
Abstract: The extreme latitude of the multi-disciplinary scenarios outlined by the social, humanistic and economic sciences – from the re-reading of the “classics” and the founding contributions accrued in philosophy, literature, anthropology and sociology – becomes the basis in formulating the working hypothesis of a new discipline. For the author, the sociological analysis of cultural heritage moves from the recognition of the sector as an all-embracing source of value – cultural, civic and economic – for the individual and for the nation. Nevertheless, it should be recognised how the radical changes associated with redefining judicial and organisational trends in the sector, with the impact of technologies, and more importantly, with the profound change in users, have essentially left intact - at the same time “democratising it” for new audiences – the most universal asset that artistic-cultural heritage possesses: that is to say, the ability to “consult” the social actors themselves in depth, referring them to a system of “aspirational” values. A strength – as is well-known – that both upholds and goes beyond the duties of daily life, including the ambivalent need for social “belonging” and “distinction” which is nourished by consuming art and culture. Hence, a sense of the “sacred”, albeit in lesser terms than in the past, emerges once more in cultural heritage. The direction it takes is towards the spiritualisation of existence and is such for an increasingly varied number of social sectors, which nowadays are “fashioned” for the enjoyment of culture owing to improved levels of education and available skills. Cultural heritage can consequently be seen as a relational resource and a “social capital” ante litteram: due to the participatory role of culture, when real “citizenship” assets are consumed, they create a new source of social values, which are cohesive and create community interaction for today’s social actors. Riassunto L’estrema latitudine degli scenari multi-disciplinari delineati dalle scienze sociali, umanistiche ed economiche ? a partire dalla rilettura dei “classici” e dei contributi fondativi maturati in ambito filosofico, letterario, antropologico e sociologico – diventa l’orizzonte di partenza per la formulazione delle ipotesi di lavoro di una nuova disciplina. Nell’ intenzione dichiarata dell’ autore, l’analisi sociologica dei beni culturali muove dal riconoscimento del settore come fonte di valore a tutto tondo – culturale, civico ed economico ? per i singoli e per il sistema-paese. D’altra parte, occorre riconoscere quanto i radicali cam
