Introduction: A fibrolipoma of the left subclavicular region, a neoplasm rarely encountered in this region, was compromising the branchial plexus and thoracic duct, causing thoracic outlet syndrome in a symptomatic patient.
Case Presentation: A 41-year-old Asian woman was brought to our ENT (ear-nose-throat) clinic because of slowly progressive swelling of the left subclavicular region since 10 years before, which became painful with time, associated with increasing subpectoral and shoulder pains, left arm swelling, and left forearm paresthesias.
Discussion: The exact etiology of fibrolipomas remains disputed, and endocrine, dysmetabolic, genetic, and traumatic factors have been often considered. Read More

One of the responses that honey bee workers can make in the event of queen loss is to develop into false queens. False queens are workers that exhibit both behavioural and physiological traits similar to those of a true queen. However, the presence of more than one false queen in a colony distorts the established hierarchies. Read More

PDRG1 is a small oncogenic protein of 133 residues. In normal human tissues, the p53 and DNA damage-regulated gene 1 () gene exhibits maximal expression in the testis and minimal levels in the liver. Increased expression has been detected in several tumor cells and in response to genotoxic stress. Read More

In this study we investigated the effects of a mirror-mediated, partial view of one's dance partner on interpersonal coordination in dance duets. Fourteen participant pairs (dyads) were asked to perform a reflectionally-symmetric eight-segment dance-relevant arm movement sequence in two visual conditions: with one dancer facing the mirror and providing a partial view on the dance partner, or both dancers facing back to back with, for both dancers, no view on one's partner. During an eight-count beat-preparation phase, the task was paced via a metronome at three TEMPI; 1. Read More

The performance of cellulase and amylase immobilized on siliceous supports was investigated. Enzyme uptake onto the support depended on the enzyme source and immobilization conditions. For amylase, the uptake ranged between 20 and 60%, and for cellulase, 7-10%. Read More
