Chase termination

Sergio Greco, Francesca Spezzano
2010 Proceedings of the VLDB Endowment  
Several database areas such as data exchange and integration share the problem of fixing database instance violations with respect to a set of constraints. The chase algorithm solves such violations by inserting tuples and setting the value of nulls. Unfortunately, the chase algorithm may not terminate and the problem of deciding whether the chase process terminates is undecidable. Recently there has been an increasing interest in the identification of sufficient structural properties of
more » ... ints which guarantee that the chase algorithm terminates [8, 10, 14, 15] . In this paper we propose an original technique which allows to improve current conditions detecting chase termination. Our proposal consists in rewriting the original set of constraints Σ into an 'equivalent' set Σ α and verifying the structural properties for chase termination on Σ α . The rewriting of constraints allows to recognize larger classes of constraints for which chase termination is guaranteed. In particular, we show that if Σ satisfies chase termination conditions T , then the rewritten set Σ α satisfies T as well, but the vice versa is not true, that is there are significant classes of constraints for which Σ α satisfies T and Σ does not.

Methicillin-resistant coagulase negative staphylococci isolated from horses

Marialaura Corrente, Maria D'Abramo, Francesca Latronico, Maria Fiorella Greco, Anna Lucia Bellacicco, Grazia Greco, Vito Martella, Domenico Buonavoglia
2009 The New Microbiologica  
A methicillin-resistant (MR) Staphylococcus epidermidis strain was isolated from a saddle horse affected by osteolysis. MR coagulase-negative staphylococci (MRCNS) were isolated from 11 of 14 (78.8%) horses housed in the same riding club. By typing of the SCCmec region, almost the strains displayed a non typeable (NT) pattern and possessed the ccr type 2. Altogether, the high prevalence of MRCNS and the detection of NT SCCmec types support the hypothesis that horses may represent a reservoir of

Challenges Associated with Convalescent Plasma Infusion Therapy During Pregnancy, a Case Report

Antonio Mastroianni, Sonia Greco, Luciana Chidichimo, Maria Vittoria Mauro, Francesca Greco, Filippo Urso, Valeria Vangeli
2022 Women's Health Bulletin  
The Covid-19 pandemic has so far been characterized by significant morbidity and a high mortality rate worldwide. People who are frail due to age and / or the presence of comorbidities, including pregnant women, are exposed to a greater risk of developing a very serious disease. However, only recently, certain experimental studies have focused on the role of anti- Covid-19 drugs during pregnancy. Convalescent plasma (CP), derived from the people who recover from Covid-19, can represent an

It can also improve the survival of the patients who are diagnosed with the disease early and treated in the primary stages of the disease. Case Presentation: We reported the case of a pregnant patient safely treated with CP at our hospital and conducted a comprehensive literature search using extensive database for similar case reports published from February 12, 2020 to May 31, 2021. Conclusions: An extensive literature search documented the publication of a limited number of case reports concerning Covid-19 hyperimmune plasma treatment (CPT) during pregnancy. The available results are not homogeneous; however, a very early use of CPT may possibly be effective in pregnancy. The evolution of Covid-19-related pneumonia, due to a reduction in both viremia and the concentration of proinflammatory cytokines, can be positively influenced by CPT, together with the standards of care treatment.

Detection of Brucella canis in a dog in Italy

Marialaura Corrente, Delia Franchini, Nicola Decaro, Grazia Greco, Maria D'Abramo, Maria Fiorella Greco, Francesca Latronico, Antonio Crovace, Vito Martella
2010 The New Microbiologica  
Brucella spp. is a worldwide zoonotic pathogen. Infection by Brucella canis in dogs is endemic in the Southern USA and in Central and South America, but it appears sporadically in other parts of the world, including Europe. Tissue samples from a dog with chronic prostatitis, discospondylitis and locomotor problems were subjected to clinical and laboratory examinations. B. canis was detected by PCR in biological fluids and tissues of the animal, while antibodies to B. canis were found in the

Management of Transverse Vaginal Septum by Vaginoscopic Resection: Hymen Conservative Technique

Gennaro Scutiero, Pantaleo Greco, Piergiorgio Iannone, Giulia Bernardi, Francesca Greco, Luigi Nappi
2018 Revista Brasileira de Ginecologia e Obstetrícia  
AbstractTransverse vaginal septum is a rare female genital tract anomaly, and little is described about its surgical treatment. We report the case of a patient who wished to preserve hymenal integrity due to social and cultural beliefs. We performed a vaginoscopic resection of the septum under laparoscopic view, followed by the introduction of a Foley catheter in the vagina, thus preserving the hymen. After 12 months of follow-up, no septal closure was present, and the menstrual flow was

Dance and Music for Improving Health among Patients with Breast Cancer and Parkinson's Disease: A Narrative Review

Francesca Greco, Elisa Grazioli, Attilio Parisi, Emanuela A. Greco, Gian Pietro Emerenziani
2021 Endocrines  
Although a longer life may bring new opportunities for older people and society, advancing age is a leading risk factor for developing several chronic diseases, consequently limiting the health span. During the ageing process, changes in the activity of several endocrine glands may occur, leading to different clinical conditions. Being physically active becomes fundamental for healthy ageing. Despite regular physical activity being shown to have many health benefits, patients with cancer and

Over the past two decades, there has been a major increase in arts engagement (e.g., dance and music) on health and well-being in both clinical and non-clinical contexts. Dance and music have been shown to induce positive effects on hormonal glands, patients' sociality, and self-confidence. Therefore, this review aims to highlight evidence regarding the effects of music and dance on hormonal responses and as preventive and compliance tools for heathy ageing in breast cancer and Parkinson's disease patients.

Minimally Invasive Intraoral Approach to Submandibular Lodge

Massimo Galli, Massimo Fusconi, Francesca Romana Federici, Francesca Candelori, Marco De Vincentiis, Antonella Polimeni, Luca Testarelli, Benedetta Cassese, Gabriele Miccoli, Antonio Greco
2020 Journal of Clinical Medicine  
The purpose of this study is to describe the Minimally Invasive Intraoral Approach (MIIA) performed on selected cases of abscesses and neck phlegmons of odontogenic origin when the infection has not spread beyond the inferior mandibular margin. This technique allows us to avoid cervicotomy by a direct approach to the abscess, draining it through the oral cavity. If the limits have already been crossed, then cervicotomy is necessary. The aim of the study is to show the surgical outcomes that we

We selected 66 patients with abscesses and neck phlegmons, from January 2018 to June 2020. Among these cases, five patients were excluded as it was not possible to recover medical records from database. The MIIA technique has been performed on 16 patients (26.2%) when a successful dental extraction and drainage of the submandibular lodge were accomplished. The patients who underwent the MIIA surgery have all perfectly healed and did not suffer from relapses during the follow-up. The results show the achievement of excellent healing, underlining the lower impact required by MIIA when compared to a more traditional approach through cervicotomy.

Extracellular Vesicles as Drivers of Immunoinflammation in Atherothrombosis

Rosa Suades, Maria Francesca Greco, Teresa Padró, Lina Badimon
2022 Cells  
Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality all over the world. Extracellular vesicles (EVs), small lipid-bilayer membrane vesicles released by most cellular types, exert pivotal and multifaceted roles in physiology and disease. Emerging evidence emphasizes the importance of EVs in intercellular communication processes with key effects on cell survival, endothelial homeostasis, inflammation, neoangiogenesis, and thrombosis. This review focuses on EVs

We provide a comprehensive and updated summary of the role of EVs in the development or regression of atherosclerotic lesions, highlighting the link between thrombosis and inflammation. Importantly, we also critically describe their potential clinical use as disease biomarkers or therapeutic agents in atherothrombosis.
