The perceptions of pharmacists in Victoria, Australia on pharmacogenetics and its implications
McMahon,Teresa; Tucci,Joseph;
Pharmacy Practice (Internet) , 2011, DOI: 10.4321/S1886-36552011000300005
Abstract: objectives: this study aimed to explore how well victorian pharmacists perceived they understood pharmacogenetics, their perceived capacity to counsel a patient about such testing, how they believed pharmacogenetics would impact upon their profession, and to investigate the ways in which victorian pharmacists would like to be educated about pharmacogenetics. methods: a cross-sectional survey was dispatched to 800 victorian pharmacists. the participants were randomly selected and the survey was anonymous. the survey contained questions about where the pharmacists worked, the pharmacists′ perceived knowledge of pharmacogenetics, how well they believed they would be able to counsel patients about pharmacogenetic testing, how they thought pharmacists should be educated on the topic and how they believed pharmacogenetics would impact upon their profession. results: 291 surveys were returned (36% response rate). results suggest that victorian pharmacists generally perceived they had a poor understanding of pharmacogenetics and that those who have more recently graduated from tertiary education had a better perceived understanding than those who have been in the workforce for longer. most pharmacists indicated that they did not believe that they could counsel a patient adequately about the results of a pharmacogenetic test. regarding education about pharmacogenetics, participants suggested that this would be best delivered during tertiary studies, and as seminars and workshops forming part of their continuing professional development. although some pharmacists were unsure how pharmacogenetics would affect their profession, many believed it would have a major impact upon their role as a pharmacist and lead to improved patient care. some concerns about the implementation of pharmacogenetics were noted, including economic and ethical issues. conclusion: this study highlights the need for further research across the pharmacy profession in australia on the issue of preparedness
Efecto de los comerciales de televisión en la escogencia y consumo de alimentos en los ni?os
Tucci,Sonia;

Abstract: this review examines the effect of food advertising on children?s food preferences, food choice and, ultimately, children?s obesity. the majority of food items promoted by tv adverts are calorically dense/ low nutritional value products. this contrasts with the healthy diet promoted by governments, health organisations schools and parents. food tv adverts exert a direct effect on food preferences, they influence purchase behaviour and increase their consumption. children eat more after viewing food tv adverts. although this increase can be seen in all weight groups, obese children tend to eat more, followed by overweight children and normal weight children. the effect of food adverts is present even at the age of 3. the review ends by mentioning the strategies that have been proposed in order to decrease food promotion to children and favourable conse-quences of this.
Grelina en regulación del apetito y papel en obesidad y trastornos alimentarios: Abordajes terapéuticos
Tucci,Sonia;
Revista Venezolana de Endocrinología y Metabolismo , 2008,
Abstract: ghrelin is a peptide hormone secreted by the stomach. it was initially described as a stimulant of growth hormone secretion. soon, however, it was discovered to play an important role in feeding behaviour in animals and in appetite regulation in man: ghrelin stimulates appetite, and as such is an orexigenic peptide implicated in energy balance mechanisms and weight gain. abnormal ghrelin activity leads to over- or underweight. additionally, the efficacy of different treatment strategies against obesity seems to be related to modifications in plasma ghrelin levels. whereas the effects of ghrelin in the regulation of appetite, food intake and energy homeostasis have been fairly well documented, the pathways responsible for the effects of ghrelin are now increasingly being understood. as a consequence, clinical applications of ghrelin are now being developed. the purpose of this review is to provide updated information on the role of ghrelin in food intake and energy homeostasis, and on its mechanism of action. moreover, the potential of ghrelin as a target for drugs to treat cachexia and obesity will be discussed.
The Krull radical, k-primitive rings, and critical rings
Ralph Tucci
International Journal of Mathematics and Mathematical Sciences , 1982, DOI: 10.1155/s0161171282000702
Abstract: We generalize results on the Krull radical, k-primitive rings, and critical rings from rings with identity to rings which do not necessarily contain identity.
Efecto de los comerciales de televisión en la escogencia y consumo de alimentos en los ni os

Abstract: Esta revisión examina los efectos de los comerciales televisados de alimentos en la preferencia y consumo de los mismos en ni os, lo cual sin duda conlleva a alteraciones en su peso corporal. Es importante se alar que la gran mayoría de los alimentos promovidos en los comerciales de televisión son alimentos de bajo valor nutricional y calóricamente densos. Esto contrasta notablemente con los alimentos saludables promocionados por los gobiernos, organizaciones de salud, escuelas y padres. Los comerciales de televisión ejercen un efecto directo en la preferencia por alimentos, y estimulan la compra y el consumo de los mismos. Ni os expuestos a comerciales de alimentos comen más después de verlos. Aunque dicha exposición aumenta el consumo independientemente del peso corporal del ni o, los mayores aumentos en la ingesta se ven en ni os obesos, seguidos de ni os con sobrepeso y finalmente ni os de peso normal. El efecto de los comerciales de televisión es evidente en ni os desde edades muy tempranas (3 a os). Se finaliza mencionado las estrategias actuales que se han propuesto para reducir la comercialización de alimentos a ni os y las consecuencias favorables que esto traería.

Grelina en regulación del apetito y papel en obesidad y trastornos alimentarios: Abordajes terapéuticos

Abstract: La grelina es una hormona peptídica secretada principalmente por el estómago. Fue descrita inicialmente como un factor estimulador de la secreción de hormona de crecimiento. Sin embargo pronto se descubrió que también juega un papel importante en la regulación del comportamiento alimentario tanto en animales como en humanos; la grelina estimula el apetito y por lo tanto está implicada en el control del balance energético y peso corporal. La regulación anormal de los niveles de grelina conduce tanto a sobre peso como a bajo peso. Adicionalmente, parece ser que la eficacia de las diferentes estrategias utilizadas en el control del peso corporal depende en parte en su capacidad de modificar los niveles plasmáticos de grelina. Mientras que los efectos de la grelina han sido relativamente bien documentados, los mecanismos responsables de sus efectos están siendo continuamente investigados y actualizados. Como consecuencia de esto, actualmente se están comenzando a desarrollar una serie de aplicaciones clínicas para los agonistas y antagonistas grelinérgicos El propósito de esta revisión es proveer información actualizada sobre el mecanismo de acción y papel de la grelina en regulación de la ingesta alimentaria y el balance energético. También se discutirá brevemente el papel de dicha hormona como blanco potencial de drogas para el tratamiento de la obesidad y caquexia. Ghrelin is a peptide hormone secreted by the stomach.

The purpose of this review is to provide updated information on the role of ghrelin in food intake and energy homeostasis, and on its mechanism of action.

L'evoluzione storica del museo scientifico, dalle gallerie alla rete
Pasquale Tucci
Bollettino del CILEA , 2006, DOI: 10.1472/bc.v102i0.1259
Abstract: L'articolo descrive il percorso storico che hanno seguito i musei, in particolare scientifici, da semplici depositi di reliquie a centri di educazione e divulgazione, fino ad approdare in Internet sotto forma interamente virtuale. This article describes the historical path museums, especially scientific ones, have followed. They were simple depository of items, then they became centers of science dissemination and education and eventually reached Internet, becoming wholly virtual.

Evolution and Gravitation: a Computer Simulation of a Non-Walrasian Equilibrium Model
Michele Tucci
Computer Science , 2002,
Abstract: The paper contains a computer simulation concerning a basic non-Walrasian equilibrium system, following the Edmond Malinvaud "short side" approach, as far as the price adjustment is concerned, and the sequential Hicksian "weeks" structure with regard of the temporal characterization.
