Immunohistochemical detection of prolactin in clinically non-functioning pituitary adenomas.
CONCLUSIONS: Our data confirm the observations that monohormonal silent prolactinomas are very rare but frequently silent PRL often co-expressed with GH or LH. Although in the whole population of patients with CNFPAs both sexes are equally represented, in the case of silent prolactinomas the female sex is prevalent. The observation of the higher rate of recurrent tumours within PRL-immunopositive adenomas versus PRL-immunonegative CNFPAs has to be confirmed on the larger material.

A review on the synthesis and applications of molecules as anticonvulsant drug agent candidates
AbstractEpilepsy is one of the most common neurological disorders worldwide and it requires a long-term or life-long treatment. Current standard treatment includes the use of antiepileptic drugs. To date, many organic compounds have been synthesized by chemists as potential antiepileptic drugs and their anticonvulsant properties have been investigated. While evaluating the anticonvulsant activities of these newly synthesized molecules, known antiepileptic drugs are used as reference. Thus, many novel molecules with anticonvulsant properties have been added to the literature. It is clear that these new molecules will be eff...

Molecules, Vol. 25, Pages 3023: Selection of the Activated Carbon Type for the Treatment of Landfill Leachate by Fenton-Adsorption Process
In this study, the adsorptive capacity of two types of activated carbon, granular and powdered, was analyzed to determine which was more efficient in the adsorption stage in the Fenton-adsorption process. Likewise, its behavior was analyzed using three isotherm models (Langmuir, Freundlich and Temkin), testing the raw leachate and the Fenton-treated one with both carbons. The adsorption that is carried out on the carbons is better adjusted to the Freundlich and Temkin models. It concludes that multilayers, through the physical adsorption, carry out the adsorption of pollutants on the surface of the carbons. The results sho...

Most common parameters include pH, total suspended solids (TSS), total nitrogen (TN), total phosphorus (TP), biochemical oxygen demand (BOD5), chemical oxygen demand (COD), heavy metals, and total coliforms and fecal coliforms as biological indicators. Then, for each SBR system, the average of each parameter was determined, and results were compared with the standard recommended by the Iranian Environmental Protection Agency. Based on the results, some of the par...
