UNLABELLED The Lyon school has proposed a preparation to brace wearing through an intensive mobilization in order to obtain a better reduction of the braced scoliotic curve. Our aim was to verify this hypothesis. DESIGN A prospective controlled study on consecutive patients having idiopathic scoliosis with brace management. OUTCOME Results after 5(More)
UNLABELLED There is low evidence on the possible efficacy of exercises to treat idiopathic scoliosis, graded as C by the existing Italian Guidelines. Our aim was to verify if exercises quality has an effect on results. DESIGN Prospective controlled study on idiopathic scoliosis patients that performed only exercises to avoid progression.

This report describes two children with undetectable serum levels of IgA1, IgG2, IgG4, and IgE due to a homozygous deletion encompassing the A1-E genes. The father is a heterozygous carrier of the same deletion and the mother a heterozygous compound carrying the deletion on one chromosome and duplication on the other. In both children, serum IgG, IgG1, and(More)
Many Authors reported an impairment of liver function tests in Rheumatoid Arthritis (R.A.) No study can be found on Serum Bile Acids (S.B.A.), which are a specific index of liver dysfunction. In a series of 20 patients, affected by R.A. and without other causes of hepatic damage, we found S.B.A. elevated in 80% (mean value 14,1 muM/l versus 2,6 muM/l in(More)
Radioimmunological measurement of serum bile acids has shown that they increase in alcoholic cirrhosis of the liver. In normal subjects, the fasting value of serum bile acids averaged 2.5 +/- 0.41 microM/l, whereas in cirrhotics it was 37.8 +/- 7.9 microM/l (p < 0.001). This technique has proved more specific than routine liver function tests. Measurement(More)
