Results of stereospecific analysis of triacylglycerol fraction from donkey, cow, ewe, goat and buffalo milk
Donkey milk represents an important dietary source of essential FA (EFA), about 40 mg/100 g milk; in particular, the linoleic acid is 2.5 times higher than in cow milk, so this milk appears interesting for its potential pharmaceutical and nutritional properties. Expand
Antioxidant capacity of cow milk, whey and deproteinized milk
The total antioxidant capacity (hydrophilic plus lipophilic) of sixteen different commercial samples of pasteurized and ultra high temperature (UHT) treated milk was determined using the oxygenExpand
Characterization of Volatile Fraction of Saffron from Central Italy (Cascia, Umbria)
Saffron, the world’s most expensive spice, is valuable for its color, taste, aroma, and properties, which are influenced by the postharvest treatments. In this research solid-phase micro-extractionExpand
Selection criteria in resectable pancreatic cancer: a biological and morphological approach.
Better patient selection can increase survival rate and neoadjuvant treatment can help surgeons select patients who will benefit from surgery, including resectable disease from borderline resectables and locally advanced pancreatic cancer. Expand
Human White Adipocytes Convert Into “Rainbow” Adipocytes In Vitro
In conclusion, both MA and post‐liposecretion adipocytes show a well‐differentiated phenotype with stem cell properties in line with the extraordinary plasticity of adipocytes in vivo. Expand
Prospective randomized study comparing monopolar with bipolar transurethral resection of prostate in benign prostatic obstruction: 36-month outcomes
Bipolar TURP in this prospective study reported the same efficacy of monopolar prostate resection, with a significant reduction of related complications, as well as safe and effective techniques for BPH management. Expand
Bioactive compounds and antioxidant characterization of three edible wild plants traditionally consumed in the Umbria Region (Central Italy): Bunias erucago L. (corn rocket), Lactuca perennis L.
The results showed that the total antioxidant capacity performed by the Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) method, which ranges from 27.2 to 63.7 μmol TE/g, is highly justifiable by the high content of phenolic compounds. Expand
Adipocytes properties and crosstalk with immune system in obesity‐related inflammation
Deeply understanding the pathways of adipocyte regulation and the de‐differentiation process could be extremely useful for developing novel strategies aimed at curbing obesity‐related inflammation and related metabolic disorders. Expand
Characterisation of secondary metabolites in saffron from central Italy (Cascia, Umbria).
The results of chromatographic analyses showed that the samples dried in the milder conditions had the lowest content of secondary metabolites, and the sample dried at 60°C for 55min presented the highest contents of trans-crocin-4 and picroCrocin, while safranal was most represented in saffron dried at 55° C for 95min.

The importance of traditional uses and nutraceutical aspects of some edible wild plants in human nutrition: the case of Umbria (central Italy)
The nutraceutical analysis centred on four of the commonly used wild edible plants demonstrates how these species contain many of the so-called minor nutrients, such as antioxidising vitamins and polyphenols, which were highest in Sanguisorba minor L. Expand
