This randomized, double-blind, double-dummy, multicenter, parallel-group study aimed at comparing the efficacy and safety of calcium carbasalate (equivalent to 900 mg aspirin) plus metoclopramide 10 mg (CM) with ergotamine tartrate 1 mg plus caffeine 100 mg (EC) administered in the treatment of 2 acute migraine attacks. A total of 296 patients fulfilling… (More)
Transferrin (TF) not only transports iron in all extracel-lular fluids but also exerts many additional properties, including cell growth stimulation, bacteriostatic action and inhibition of histamine release from mast cells and basophils [19–23]. TF is a 75 kDa glycoprotein containing 679 amino acids and two glycan chains. For each, the last residue is a… (More)
Fifteen patients with neuroleptic treatment (haloperidol 4 to 6 mg a day or phenothiazines) and eleven control patients were given TRH 250 microgram i.v. and 1-24 ACTH, i.m. different times, TSH, T3, T4, FT4, Prolactin (PRL) cortisol were measured. Before TRH injection, at baseline, TSH is higher (p less than 0,01) and T3 lower (p less than 0,05) in the… (More)
Using electrophysiological methods for studying pain in human, the authors have studied comparatively the sensation of pain and the threshold of a nociceptive flexion reflex of the lower limb, both elicited by electrical stimulation of sural nerve in 20 obese women (weight greater than or equal to 30 p. 100 of ideal weight) and 14 normal weighing women as… (More)
