PURPOSE Aerobic training accelerates Heart Rate Recovery after exercise in healthy subjects and in patients with coronary disease. As shown by pharmacological autonomic blockade, HRR early after exercise is dependent primarily on parasympathetic reactivation. Thus, accelerated HRR early after exercise in endurance-trained athletes may be attributed to(More)
BACKGROUND Othello syndrome (OS) is an organic delusional disorder with prevailing jealousy symptoms presumably appearing as side effect of antiparkinsonian therapy. The clinical spectrum of psychiatric symptoms in Parkinson's disease (PD) is very wide, including symptoms of depression and anxiety, hallucinations, delusions, with prevalent paranoid(More)
The plasma levels of the active (free) fraction of testosterone (Te) and of Te Binding Globulin (TeBG) in a group of 42 heroin addicts with similar sexual difficulties were investigated for almost 2 years. Plasma levels of free Te were significantly low and TeBG were significantly high not only in the addicts with low total Te concentrations, but also in(More)
The mechanism of muzolimine (3-amino-1-[3,4-dichloro-alpha-methyl-benzyl]-2 pyrazolin-5-one) action is still not completely defined. The identified site of action is the Henle loop, similarly to furosemide which acts also by mediating renal prostaglandin synthesis. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the early effects of muzolimine (30 mg per os)(More)
PURPOSE The occurrence of side-effects such as visceral malaise after intrathecal administration of the non-ionic radiography contrast media iomeprol, iopamidol, and iotrolan was assessed in rats by the conditioned tasted aversion procedure. METHODS Reduced preference towards a saccharose solution compared with normal water following intraventricular(More)
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES Magnetic resonance imaging with contrast agents (CAs) is a procedure currently used for the diagnosis of neurologic pathologies. These pathologies are often characterized by blood-brain barrier disruptions, which determines a direct contact between CA and brain tissue. For this reason, an accurate assessment of neurotolerability is(More)
PURPOSE Brain contrast-enhanced MR imaging reflects the leakage of contrast material into the brain tissue due to blood-brain barrier (BBB) disruption. The contact between brain tissue and contrast material requires a high level of neurotolerability of the contrast agent (CA). In the present study, we investigated the neurotolerability of the paramagnetic(More)
