Anatomic pairing of afferent arterioles and renin cell distribution in rat kidneys.
Close afferent arteriolar (AA) connectivity is a prerequisite for hemodynamic interaction between superficial rat nephrons. Studies were conducted in rat, mouse, rabbit, and human renal vasculaturesExpand
Bone mineral density, bone turnover markers and fractures in patients with indolent systemic mastocytosis.
OBJECTIVE We systematically assessed bone mineral density (BMD), bone turnover markers (BTM), and fractures in a large cohort of patients with Indolent Systemic Mastocytosis (ISM). METHODSExpand
Isolated bone marrow mastocytosis: an underestimated subvariant of indolent systemic mastocytosis
Systemic mastocytosis (SM) is a heterogeneous disorder characterized by the proliferation and accumulation of atypical mast cells (MC) in tissues, principally in the bone marrow (BM) and skin. TheExpand
Clinical presentation and management practice of systemic mastocytosis. A survey on 460 Italian patients
Systemic mastocytosis is a rare heterogeneous myeloproliferative neoplasm characterized by abnormal proliferation and activation of mast cells. We describe a large multicentre series of 460 adultExpand
Longitudinal Evaluation of Bone Mineral Density and Bone Metabolism Markers in Patients with Indolent Systemic Mastocytosis Without Osteoporosis
Systemic Mastocytosis has been long identified as a potential cause of osteoporosis; nevertheless, data regarding longitudinal variation of bone mineral density (BMD) in patients with indolentExpand
New Method for Imaging Innervation of the Renal Preglomerular Vasculature. Alterations in Hypertensive Rats
Objective: To develop a new method for viewing adrenergic innervation along renal preglomerular vessels; to assess nerve densities and vascular lesions along arcuate arteries (ArcA), arcuate arterialExpand
Primary role of multiparametric flow cytometry in the diagnostic work‐up of indolent clonal mast cell disorders
According to the World Health Organization (WHO) classification the diagnosis of systemic mastocytosis (SM) relies on bone marrow (BM) examination and is based on one major and four minor criteria.Expand
Candesartan and progression of preglomerular lesions in N(G)-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester hypertensive rats.
Chronic administration of N(G)-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester (L-NAME) to rats induces systemic hypertension and progressive development of preglomerular sudanophilic (SB+) lesions. This studyExpand
Topology of Schwann cells and sympathetic innervation along preglomerular vessels: a confocal microscopic study in protein S100B/EGFP transgenic mice.
Schwann cells (Sc), associated axons, and nearby vascular endothelium constitute a functional trilogy of major importance during the development and regrowth of peripheral vascular nerves. The goalExpand
Nitric oxide and preglomerular vascular lesions in lyon spontaneously hypertensive rats.
Accumulation of Sudan black-stainable (SB+) lipids is a hallmark of the focal inflammato-proliferative lesions that develop along preglomerular vessels in N G-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester (L-NAME)Expand
