Jet reconstruction at high-energy electron–positron colliders

In this paper we study the performance in \(e^+e^-\) collisions of classical \(e^+e^-\) jet reconstruction algorithms, longitudinally invariant algorithms and the recently proposed Valencia algorithm. The study includes a comparison of perturbative and non-perturbative jet energy corrections and the response under realistic background conditions. Several algorithms are...

Novel Method for Analysis of Allele Specific Expression in Triploid Oryzias latipes Reveals Consistent Pattern of Allele Exclusion

Assessing allele-specific gene expression (ASE) on a large scale continues to be a technically challenging problem. Certain biological phenomena, such as X chromosome inactivation and parental imprinting, affect ASE most drastically by completely shutting down the expression of a whole set of alleles. Other more subtle effects on ASE are likely to be much more complex and...

A study of the prostate, androgens and sexual activity of male rats

Background The prostate is a sexual gland that produces important substances for the potency of sperm to fertilize eggs within the female reproductive tract, and is under complex endocrine control. Taking advantage of the peculiar behavioral pattern of copulating male rats, we developed experimental paradigms to determine the influence of sexual behavior on the level of serum...

Gemcitabine and oxaliplatin combination: a multicenter phase II trial in unfit patients with locally advanced or metastatic urothelial cancer

Background: Up to 50% of patients with bladder cancer cannot be treated with cisplatin because they are considered unfit due to poor renal function. Gemcitabine and oxaliplatin are active, nonnephrotoxic therapies with nonoverlapping toxicity profiles that provide an alternative therapy for this group of patients. Patients and methods: In a multicenter study, patients received...

Prostate response to prolactin in sexually active male rats

Background The prostate is a key gland in the sexual physiology of male mammals. Its sensitivity to steroid hormones is widely known, but its response to prolactin is still poorly known. Previous studies have shown a correlation between sexual behaviour, prolactin release and prostate physiology. Thus, here we used the sexual behaviour of male rats as a model for studying this...

Hydrolytic enzymes and ability of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi to colonize roots

The production of hydrolytic enzymes from external mycelia associated with roots and colonized soybean roots (Glycine max L.) inoculated with different arbuscular‐mycorrhizal (AM) fungi of the genus Glomus, and the possible relationship between these activities and the capacity of the AM fungi to colonize plant roots was studied. There were differences in root colonization and...

The re-emergence of American visceral leishmaniasis in an old focus in Venezuela: present situation of human and canine infections

The report of a new autochthonous case of human American Visceral Leishmaniasis (AVL) in 1992 in the village of Guayabita, Aragua State, Venezuela (10° 16'N, 67°28'W; 500 m asl), led us to undertake an epidemiological study in this locality. A demographic survey was conducted using a structured questionnaire in which data was collected regarding sex, age, occupation, length of...

Paclitaxel plus vinorelbine: An active regimen in metastatic breast cancer patients with prior anthracycline exposure

Purpose: To evaluate the anti-tumour activity and tolerance of the combination of paclitaxel plus vinorelbine in metastatic breast cancer (MBC) patients previously treated with anthra-cyclines. Patients and methods: Fifty-six MBC patients who have had at least one previous anthracycline-containing chemotherapy regimen were enrolled in this phase II trial. Patients received...

Clinical, Virological, and Histologic Evolution of Hepatitis C Virus Infection in Liver Transplant Recipients

We designed a prospective study to assess the time course and evolution of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection in 152 patients who underwent a liver transplantation (LT) in our institution. Forty-four recipients (29%) were infected by HCV after transplantation: 40 who developed recurrent infection after LT and four who acquired infection during or after LT. No differences were...
