CONTEXT An association between germline aryl hydrocarbon receptor-interacting protein (AIP) gene mutations and pituitary adenomas was recently shown. OBJECTIVE The objective of the study was to assess the frequency of AIP gene mutations in a large cohort of patients with familial isolated pituitary adenoma (FIPA). DESIGN This was a multicenter,(More)
Changes of simple visual reaction time were analyzed in two groups of unilateral brain damaged patients in order to evaluate to what extent intrahemispheric localization of lesions affects performance. Possible interactions with size were avoided by selecting a localization criterion, i.e. the median section of lesion, uncorrelated with size of damage. By(More)
BACKGROUND Saliva is a useful sample as a source of hormones for the diagnosis of different diseases, particularly in pediatric patients and aged individuals, because saliva offers a noninvasive and stress-free alternative to serum collection. The aim of this study was to validate a salivary insulin method and to check its clinical application in pediatric(More)
The incidence of a delayed P100 component of the VEP after checkerboard stimulation in probable or possible multiple sclerosis (MS) without history, signs or symptoms of optic neuritis is not significantly different from that found in other neurological disorders in which the visual system is unaffected. This reduces the diagnostic validity of a delayed(More)
