Psychological impact of COVID-19 outbreak on families of children with autism spectrum disorder and typically developing peers : an online survey

Levante, Annalisa ; Petrocchi, Serena ; Bianco, Federica ; Castelli, Ilaria ; Colombi, Costanza ; Keller, Roberto ; Narzisi, Antonio ; Masi, Gabriele ; Lecciso, Flavia

In: Brain sciences, 2021, vol. 11, no. 6, p. 16

When COVID-19 was declared as a pandemic, many countries imposed severe lockdowns that changed families’ routines and negatively impacted on parents’ and children’s mental health. Several studies on families with children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) revealed that lockdown increased the difficulties faced by individuals with ASD, as well as parental distress. No studies have...

Extreme sleep state misperception : from psychopathology to objective-subjective sleep measures

Castelnovo, Anna ; Ferri, Raffaele ; Galbiati, Andrea ; Rossi, Alessandro ; Zucconi, Marco ; Castronovo, Vincenza ; Strambi, Luigi-Ferini ; Manconi, Mauro

In: International journal of psychophysiology, 2021, vol. 167, p. 77-85

Study objectives: We tested the hypothesis that patients with extreme sleep state misperception display higher levels of psychopathology and reduced quantitative estimation abilities compared to other patients with insomnia. Secondary aims included the evaluation of group differences in subjective self-reported quality of life and sleep quality and objective sleep parameters. Methods: In this...

Targeting the DNA damage response for patients with lymphoma : preclinical and clinical evidences

Carrassa, Laura ; Colombo, Ilaria ; Damia, Giovanna ; Bertoni, Francesco

In: Cancer treatment reviews, 2020, vol. 90, p. 11

The DNA damage response (DDR) is a well-coordinated cellular network activated by DNA damage. The unravelling of the key players in DDR, their specific inactivation in different tumor types and the synthesis of specific chemical inhibitors of DDR represent a new hot topic in cancer therapy. In this article, we will review the importance of DDR in lymphoma development and how this can be...

The criterion validity of the First Year Inventory and the Quantitative-CHecklist for Autism in Toddlers : a longitudinal study

Levante, Annalisa ; Petrocchi, Serena ; Lecciso, Flavia

In: Brain sciences, 2020, vol. 10, no. 10, p. 22

Pediatric surveillance through screening procedures is needed to detect warning signs of risk for Autism Spectrum Disorder under 24 months of age and to promote early diagnosis and treatment. The main purpose of this study is to extend the literature regarding the psychometric properties of two screening tools, the First Year Inventory (FYI) and the Quantitative- CHecklist for Autism in Toddler...

Marine anticancer agents : an overview with a particular focus on their chemical classes

Barreca, Marilia ; Spanò, Virginia ; Montalbano, Alessandra ; Cueto, Mercedes ; Díaz Marrero, Ana R. ; Deniz, Irem ; Erdoğan, Ayşegül ; Lukić Bilela, Lada ; Moulin, Corentin ; Taffin-de-Givenchy, Elisabeth ; Spriano, Filippo ; Perale, Giuseppe ; Mehiri, Mohamed ; Rotter, Ana ; Thomas, Olivier P. ; Barraja, Paola ; Gaudêncio, Susana P. ; Bertoni, Francesco

In: Marine drugs, 2020, vol. 18, no. 12, p. 28

The marine environment is a rich source of biologically active molecules for the treatment of human diseases, especially cancer. The adaptation to unique environmental conditions led marine organisms to evolve different pathways than their terrestrial counterparts, thus producing unique chemicals with a broad diversity and complexity. So far, more than 36,000 compounds have been isolated from...

Increasing cancer risk over calendar year in people with multiple sclerosis : a case–control study

Zecca, Chiara ; Disanto, Giulio ; Sacco, Rosaria ; MacLachlan, Sharon ; Kuhle, Jens ; Ramagopalan, Sreeram V. ; Gobbi, Claudio

In: Journal of Neurology, 2021, no. 268, p. 817–824

Background: Data on cancer prevalence and incidence in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients are controversial. This study is aimed at estimating cancer risk in MS patients. Methods: Nested case–control study using data collected between 01/01/1987 and 28/02/2016 from the United Kingdom Clinical Practice Research Datalink. Cancer diagnoses after first MS code (index date) was counted in 10,204 MS...

Identity reinforcement or risky organizational change? : Category spanning in humanitarian projects

Kooijman, Eva A. P. ; Beck, Nikolaus

In: Administrative sciences, 2021, vol. 11, no. 4, p. 17

In this study, we investigate the consequences of organizational change that consist of adding new categories to the portfolio of humanitarian organizations. Our aim is to discern differences in these consequences between specialist and generalist organizations. Previous research has shown that spanning categories lead to disadvantages in the evaluation of organizations by audience members in...

Space–time shape uncertainties in the forward and inverse problem of electrocardiography

Gander, Lia ; Krause, Rolf ; Multerer, Michael ; Pezzuto, Simone

In: International journal for numerical methods in biomedical engineering, 2021, vol. 37, no. 10, p. 23

In electrocardiography, the “classic” inverse problem is the reconstruction of electric potentials at a surface enclosing the heart from remote recordings at the body surface and an accurate description of the anatomy. The latter being affected by noise and obtained with limited resolution due to clinical constraints, a possibly large uncertainty may be perpetuated in the inverse ...

Head-to-head comparison of FNA cytology vs. calcitonin measurement in FNA washout fluids (FNA-CT) to diagnose medullary thyroid carcinoma : A systematic review and meta-analysis

Trimboli, Pierpaolo ; Giannelli, Jacopo ; Marques, Bernardo ; Piccardo, Arnoldo ; Crescenzi, Anna ; Deandrea, Maurilio

In: Endocrine, 2022, no. 75, p. 33–39

Purpose: The sensitivity of cytology after fine needle aspiration (FNA-cytology) in detecting medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) is low. To overcome this problem, measuring calcitonin (CT) in washout fluid of FNA (FNA-CT) has been largely diffused and showed good performance. However, no evidence-based study exists comparing systematically the sensitivity of FNA-cytology and FNA-CT. This study...

Neuroticism and internet addiction : What is next? A systematic conceptual review

Marciano, Laura ; Camerini, Anne-Linda ; Schulz, Peter J.

In: Personality and individual differences, 2022, vol. 185, p. 10

The personality trait of neuroticism (N) has consistently shown to be a risk factor for Internet Addiction (IA). Review literature, however, looked at this in bivariate analyses only. To the best of our knowledge, we conducted the first review that systematically and conceptually summarized results based on the inclusion of additional factors, thus coming closer to the complex nature of the ...
