The lead author of the research that discovered the protein switch which controls the progress of breast tumours comes from Sicily. Rossella Lucà was born in Gela 29 years ago. Just like many other young Italian talents, she had to fly to the University of Leuven in Belgium to achieve her professional dream. An achievement that, for her, was not just a result at work. “My family – explains Rossella - has had a number of unfortunate experiences with breast cancer.

At the end of the course, the only way to continue her research was by undertaking a research doctorate in Belgium. Four years later, Dr. Lucà signed the study, recently published in the Embo Journal of the European Molecular Biology Organization, showing that the protein responsible for the most common form of hereditary intellectual disability, the Fragile X Syndrome, also contributes to the progression of breast tumours. “This is an important result – affirms Rossella Lucà – since it allows the performance of tests to predict metastases”.

I colori nello status degli utenti di sesso femminile servono a dichiarare la tinta del reggiseno. Ma mentre in Italia è solo un divertimento, la campagna era partita come sensibilizzazione contro la malattia nel 2010. Nero, verde, rosso: probabilmente, se siete utenti di Facebook, vi ricorderete di esservi imbattuti in molti status di questo tenore sui profili dei vostri contatti di sesso femminile. Per molti maschietti è stato un rebus che si è risolto solamente chiedendo ad amiche, mogli e fidanzate cosa caspiterina volesse dire quell’invasione di colori sulle bacheche. Presto detto: le caselle di posta di molte “signore” sono state intasate da un messaggio che recita cosìRead more...

Ideas and excellence: perhaps the real key to understanding why Metaltronica stands out at an international level, despite the market presence of large multinational groups. A motivating challenge for a young and dynamic firm. To date, Metaltronica has sold and installed more than 6,000 mammography systems around the world. Following the introduction of new plant and equipment, annual production capacity has now risen to about 600 analogue and digital units.
The technical establishment of Metaltronica are located in Pomezia, near Rome, and includes two different production lines: analogic and digital. Thanks to a long experience and excellent technical skills of the team, Metaltronica ensures high production levesl and the highest quality standards.
