The high-risk human papillomaviruses (HR-HPVs) are the etiologic agents of cervical cancer and are associated to anal and oropharyngeal cancers. The presence of HPV infection in the mouth may increase by 20 times the risk of developing oropharyngeal carcinomas.

The E6 and E7 oncoproteins are responsible for the onset and maintenance of carcinogenesis induced by HR-HPVs. They represent appropriate targets for the development of diagnostic tools.

The TBP method, developed for the qualitative and quantitative identification of primary, raw material of both animal and plant origin that may be present in food, is unique, different from any other method used by the competition for the same purpose. Protected by patents and pending patents own by the Italian National Research Council, is capable of tracing any element, species or varieties, declared or not, actually present in food mixtures and primary raw material.

Here a Silica Gelatin composite for removal of chromate from water solutions and the “in situ” conversion process of Cr(VI) to Cr(III) onto this material are described. All the fabrication details of this composite are also described. Additionally we also determine that chromate ions adsorption is not affected by the presence of sulfate ions and a slightly acidic pH conditions

Palm oil is a vegetable fat widely used in the food industry (it represents the basic component of the world's most famous chocolate and of most baked goods, cookies, cakes and snacks) and its widespread use is due to its peculiarities. Texture, fragrance, taste neutrality, the ability to lengthen the preservation of the products and maintain their chemical and physical stability even at high temperatures and, last but not least, its relatively low cost, represent some of them.

ISAFOM-CNR, Perugia has recently developed an innovative procedure that can easily turn the waste resulting from olive oil mills into an excellent soil conditioner/organic fertilizer.

It is realized through a simplified static composting procedure conducted in gas-permeable bags with passive aeration of the biomass.

The technology is especially suited to the treatment of the humid pomace produced by “two phases” modern olive mills, ideally working in line with it.

The growing interest of consumers for the typical products provided with a European quality brand, such as PGI or PDO, is pushing companies and/or producers association to identify valid means to protect the origin and uniqueness of their products. The determination of isotope ratios using IRMS (Isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometry) is based on significant differences in the relationship between stable isotopes of bio-elements present in some organic molecules.

The technology exploits the fluorescence quenching mechanism dues to the presence of metal ions in solution, by a Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP) extracted from a marine organism and produced as recombinant protein.  rGFP showed selectivity and sensitivity to copper ions (in the µM range) so it was used to test the possibility to design an optical sensor prototype. In addition, we decided  to validate the technology on a biological system such as closed cultivation of tomato and strawberry plants.

The Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is the aetiological cause of many different tumours including cervical, ano-genital and head/neck cancers. No specific therapies exist for the treatment of these tumours able to avoid recurrence of lesions. Targeting the HPV-associated antigens (i.e. the E7 and E6 oncoproteins) offers the possibility to tailor intervention and produce specific anti-HPV tumour therapies.

A new class of non-covalent caspase-1 inhibitors. The synthesized low molecular weight non-peptidic molecules have shown neuroprotective activity and are able to cross the blood brain barrier. Such molecules are of interest to modulate the inflammatory process with potential therapeutic application for both acute and chronic neurodegenerative diseases but also for inflammatory based diseases as articular diseases, skin disorders, and bowel diseases.

The “Stazione Sperimentale di Granicoltura per la Sicilia” has developed some applications for the evaluation of morpho-colorimetric parameters of food products, by means of image analysis technology. These application software allow to obtain accurate and precise measurements of sample physical traits relating to size, shape, color and the texture, reducing erroneous assessments related to the subjective and personal visual evaluation.
