In the standard seesaw model, finite corrections to the neutrino mass matrix arise from one-loop self-energy diagrams mediated by heavy neutrinos. We discuss the impact that these corrections may have on the different entries of the tree-level effective neutrino mass matrix, paying special attention to their dependence with the seesaw model parameters. We also briefly comment on the implications these corrections might have on low-energy neutrino observables. [less ▲]

Human chorionic somatomammotropin (hCS) is encoded by two highly related genes, hCS-A and hCS-B, located in the hGH/hCS gene locus. Both genes are expressed in the syncytiotrophoblast layer of the placenta and hCS release from trophoblast cells is known to be increased by cAMP and phorbol esters. However, it remains unclear whether this regulation acts at the level of hCS gene expression or secretion and whether both genes are affected. We examined the effects of cAMP and phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate (PMA) on the transcription of the hCS-A and hCS-B genes. Transient expression experiments revealed a 7 bp cAMP- and PMA-responsive element (CRElhCS-A) spanning nucleotides-1102 to -1096 upstream of the hCS-A gene. In contrast, the homologous sequence upstream of hCS-B (CRElhCS-B), differing from CRElhCS-A by a single substitution, shows little or no response to cAMP. In band-shift assays, the CRElhCS-A oligonucleotide was shown to bind two factors related to CREBP and AP-1, whereas CRElhCS-B only competes for one of these complexes. Finally, Southwestern analysis revealed that the CRElhCS-A element binds two ubiquitous proteins of 100 kDa and 47 kDa respectively, whereas CRElhCS-B interacts only with the 47 kDa protein. Taken together, these results suggest that a 47 kDa protein binding to the CRElhCS-A and CRElhCS-B elements is involved in the PMA response of the hCS-A and hCS-B genes, and a 100 kDa protein plays a crucial role in cAMP regulation of the hCS-A gene.

Purpose : The aim of the present study was to evaluate prospectively the clinical outcomes of a prototype one-piece zirconia implants after a -18 month follow-up. Material and methods : 20 prototype one-piece zirconia implants were placed and immediately restored with provisional protheses. A flapless or a minimally invasive approach was used for every implant placement. Bone levels were recorded at baseline and -1 year. Surgical, biological and prosthetic complications were also assessed. Results : The study included 15 patients. Most of the implants (90%) were placed at the anterior maxilla. Six of the implant sites were previously augmented with autogenous bone block grafts, 8 were managed with socket preservation techniques, 3 implants were immediatly placed after extraction and one implant was placed simultanously with a guided bone regeneration. Insertion torque (> 30N/cm2) was reached for all implants. The implant survival and success rates reached respectively 100% and 95%. One implant abutment fractured at placement because of an excessive insertion torque (> 50 N/cm2). No further complication occurred. Conclusion : From the preliminary results of this prospective clinical study, one-piece zirconia implants seem to success after 1 year despite they were often placed in critical clinical situtations (bone augmentations) and immediately restored. Further follow-up is needed to evaluate the long-term outcomes. [less ▲]

N-Vinylcaprolactam (NVCL) was copolymerized statistically for the first time in a controlled manner with hydrophilic N-vinylamide or hydrophobic vinylester monomers in order to precisely tune up and down the lower critical solution temperature (LCST) of the resulting copolymers. The incorporation of these segments in complex architectures was also considered. Several narrowly distributed NVCL-based copolymers were prepared by cobalt-mediated radical polymerization (CMRP) using the bis-(acetylacetonato)cobalt(II) complex as a controlling agent and N-methyl-N-vinylacetamide (NMVA), N-vinylacetamide (NVA), vinyl acetate (VAc) or vinyl pivalate (VPi) as comonomers. PNVCL-containing block copolymers having two discrete LCSTs were also synthesized following a one-pot strategy based on the sequential CMRP of NVCL followed by the copolymerization of NMVA with the residual NVCL. Upon gradual heating of aqueous solutions of such double thermoresponsive copolymers, we noticed a transition from free chains to micelles before full dehydration and collapse of the block copolymers. These advances represent a significant step towards the development of a platform based on thermoresponsive PNVCL copolymers with a single phase separation or multistep assembly behaviors. [less ▲]

The trisaccharide Gal alpha 1-->3Gal beta 1-->4GlcNAc beta 1-->O-(CH2)8COOCH3 was enzymatically synthesized, with in situ UDP-Gal regeneration. By combination in one pot of only four enzymes, namely, sucrose synthase, UDP-Glc 4'-epimerase, UDP-Gal:GlcNAc beta 4-galactosyltransferase and UDP-Gal:Gal beta 1-->4GlcNAc alpha 3-galactosyltransferase, Gal alpha 1-->3Gal beta 1-->4GlcNAc beta 1-->O-(CH2)8COOCH3 was formed in a 2.2 mumol ml-1 yield starting from the acceptor GlcNAc beta 1-->O-(CH2)8COOCH3. This is an efficient and convenient method for the synthesis of the Gal alpha 1-->3Gal beta 1-->4GlcNAc epitope which pays an important role in various biological and immunological processes.

BACKGROUND: The aim was to ascertain the 1-year clinical outcomes of 1,234 patients who underwent implantations of sirolimus-eluting stents (SES) for acute myocardial infarction (MI) in the multinational e-SELECT registry. METHODS: Fifteen thousand and one hundred and forty-seven patients treated with SES were entered in the e-SELECT registry, of whom 1,234 presented within <24 hours of onset of acute MI. RESULTS: At 1 year, the rates of major adverse cardiac events (MACE) (5.5% vs. 4.8%; P = 0.28) were similarly low in the acute and no acute MI groups. The rates of definite/probable stent thrombosis (ST) were higher in the acute MI group (2.1%vs; 0.88%, P < 0.001). ST was a strong independent predictor of death at 1 year (HR 13.4; 95% CI 5.0, 36.0; P < 0.001) and MI (HR 58.9; 95% CI 26.9, 129.1; P < 0.001). Dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) compliance at 6 months was 96.0% in the acute MI versus 94.5% in the no acute MI group (P = 0.03). CONCLUSION: In selected patients presenting within <24 hours of acute MI onset and highly compliant with DAPT, SES implantation was associated with similar rates of MACE, though higher rates of ST, as compared to no acute MI patients.
