Thyroid and renal tumors in patients treated with long-term lithium: case series from a lithium clinic, review of the literature and international pharmacovigilance reports

BackgroundCancer had never been considered as a relevant problem in patients treated with lithium until 2015, when a document published by the European Medicine Agency concluded that long-term use of lithium might induce renal tumors. A few months later, we observed the case of a woman treated with lithium for 18 years who was diagnosed with both thyroid and renal tumors...

Optical surface photometry of radio galaxies - II. Observations and data analysis

Optical imaging observations for 50 radio galaxies are presented. For each object isophotal contours, photometric profiles, structural parameters (position angle, ellipticity, Fourier coefficients), and total magnitudes are given. These observations, obtained in the Cousins R band, complement the data presented in a previous paper and are part of a larger project aimed at...

Interferometric imaging tests for the Large Binocular Telescope

We present an experiment of interferometric imaging for the Large Binocular Telescope (LBT), conducted at the 1.5 m TIRGO infrared telescope. The raw data were produced by simulating the LBT pupil with a mask on the secondary mirror. Two different conditions of , where is the single aperture diameter and the Fried parameter, were simulated by the choice of ; field rotation was...

The luminosity function of cluster galaxies - II. Data reduction procedures applied to the cluster Abell 496

We initiated a large project aimed to estimate the Luminosity Function of galaxies in clusters and to evaluate its relation to cluster morphology. With this paper we deem necessary to outline the general procedures of the data reduction and details of the data analysis. The cluster sample includes the brightest southern ROSAT all-sky survey clusters with . These have been...

The 3-D structure of the Coma–A 1367 supercluster: Optical spectroscopy of 102 galaxies

Optical spectroscopy of 117 CGCG galaxies, 102 of which are projected in the direction of the Coma–A 1367 supercluster, is reported. These new measurements, added to those found in the literature, bring to 1068 the number of CGCG galaxies in this region with available redshift, out of a total of 1085 objects with . We use these data to infer the 3-D structure of the Coma...

The ATESP radio survey - II. The source catalogue

This paper is part of a series reporting the results of the Australia Telescope ESO Slice Project (ATESP) radio survey obtained at 1400 MHz with the Australia Telescope Compact Array (ATCA) over the region covered by the ESO Slice Project (ESP) galaxy redshift survey. The survey consists of 16 radio mosaics with resolution and uniform sensitivity ( noise level ~79 μJy) over the...

Ground-based CCD astrometry with wide-field imagers - II. A star catalog for M 67: WFI@2.2 m MPG/ESO astrometry, FLAMES@VLT radial velocities

Context. The solar-age open cluster M 67 (C0847+120, NGC 2682) is a touchstone in studies of the old Galactic disk. Despite its outstanding role, the census of cluster membership for M 67 at fainter magnitudes and their properties are not well-established.Aims. Using proprietary and archival ESO data, we have obtained astrometric, photometric, and radial velocities of stars in a...

CCD spectrophotometry of CVs. III. 3270-9000 Å atlas for 38 faint systems

A 7 Å resolution, 3270-9000 Å spectrophotometric atlas is presented for 38 objects from the Downes & Shara (1993) catalogue of Cataclysmic Variables (CVs). The stars were selected among those listed as lacking published spectra. As for previous papers in this series, the aim is to check the CV status of the objects spectroscopically and to provide high quality absolute...

High resolution spectroscopy over 8500-8750 Å for GAIA - I. Mapping the MKK classification system

We present an Echelle+CCD high resolution spectroscopic atlas (0.25 Å/pix dispersion, 0.43 Å FWHM resolution and 20 000 resolving power) mapping the MKK classification system over the interval 8500-8750 Å. The wavelength interval is remarkably free from telluric lines and it is centered on the near-IR triplet of Ca II, the head of hydrogen Paschen series and several strong...

The observed periods of Ap and Bp stars

A catalogue of all the periods up to now proposed for the variations of CP2, CP3, and CP4 stars is presented. The main identifiers (HD and HR), the proper name, the variable-star name, and the spectral type and peculiarity are given for each star as far as the coordinates at 2000.0 and the visual magnitude. The nature of the observed variations (light, spectrum, magnetic field...

Optical spectroscopy of galaxies in the direction of the Virgo cluster

Optical spectroscopy of 76 galaxies, 48 of which are projected in the direction of the Virgo cluster and 28 onto the Coma–A1367 supercluster, is reported. Adding these new measurements to those found in the literature, the redshift completeness in the Virgo region becomes 92% at and 68% at . The one of CGCG galaxies in the direction of the Coma–A1367 supercluster becomes 98%. The...

Long-term monitoring of active stars. V. photometry collected in Feb.-Mar. 1990

High-precision UBV(RI)c photometry of 12 selected active stars, collected at the European Southern Observatory (La Silla, Chile) over the period February - March 1990, is presented. Significant evolution of the light curves, period variations and, in most cases, evidence for long-term variability of the global degree of spottedness are found. Some of the spectral classifications...

Contact-Dependent Growth Inhibition Proteins in Acinetobacter baylyi ADP1

Bacterial contact-dependent growth inhibition (CDI) systems are two-partner secretion systems in which toxic CdiA proteins are exported on the outer membrane by cognate transporter CdiB proteins. Upon binding to specific receptors, the C-terminal toxic (CT) domain, detached from CdiA, is delivered to neighbouring cells. Contacts inhibit the growth of not-self-bacteria, lacking...

Non-perturbative renormalisation and running of BSM four-quark operators in \(N_\mathrm {\scriptstyle f}=2\) QCD

We perform a non-perturbative study of the scale-dependent renormalisation factors of a complete set of dimension-six four-fermion operators without power subtractions. The renormalisation-group (RG) running is determined in the continuum limit for a specific Schrödinger Functional (SF) renormalisation scheme in the framework of lattice QCD with two dynamical flavours (\(N_...

The largest renewable, easily exploitable, and economically sustainable energy resource

Sun, the ultimate energy resource of our planet, transfers energy to the Earth at an average power of 23,000 TW. Earth surface can be regarded as a huge panel transforming solar energy into a more convenient mechanical form, the wind. Since millennia wind is recognized as an exploitable form of energy and it is common knowledge that the higher you go, the stronger the winds flow...
