Using a sensitive and precise radioimmunoassay for human TSH we have demonstrated significant elevations in serum TSH levels in euthyroid volunteers following administration of the dopamine receptor blocking drug metoclopramide when compared with placebo. The degree of TSH response is significantly greater in females than in males and is sustained over a(More)
After administration of the dopamine-receptor-blocking drug, metoclopramide (10 mg orally), there is significant release of thyrotrophin (T.S.H.) in hypothyroid patients which is not evident in euthyroid subjects. This is not due to spontaneous fluctuation in basal T.S.H. levels, and it indicates inhibitory dopaminergic control of T.S.H. release in man. The(More)
A diabetic woman underwent an incision of the right big toe for an abscess and developed a typical Guillain-Barré syndrome 48 h later. A biopsy of a peripheral nerve, performed 10 days later, showed modifications usually seen in diabetic patients, as well as the characteristic ultrastructural modifications of the Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS). Moreover, 22%(More)
BACKGROUND CD4+ T cell recovery dynamics were analysed during the 'on treatment' periods in structured therapy interruption (STI) as well as the long-term immune reconstitution with highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) after finishing STI. METHODS One hundred and twenty HIV-1-infected patients on successful HAART were randomized to receive for 2(More)
Few data evaluating the NK cell profile during structured therapy interruption (STI) in chronic HIV-1 infection are available. Changes in NK cell percentages and KIR and NKG2A receptors were analyzed at baseline and after 2 years of follow-up in 121 patients on ART with CD4(+) >450 cells/ml and VL <200 copies/ml randomized in three arms according to the(More)
1. Nomifensine, an inhibitor of endogenous catecholamine re-uptake, did not affect the growth hormone (GH) or prolactin levels in patients with acromegaly or hyperprolactinaemia. It does not, therefore, have any therapeutic role in these conditions at the dosage used in this study. 2. It had no effect on thyrotrophin-releasing hormone (TRH)-induced(More)
We have studied the dose-response characteristics of the LHRH analogue D-Ser (TBU)6-Des Gly10-LHRH-ethylamide administered subcutaneously to five normal male volunteers. The relative potency of the analogue is about sixty times (FSH) and forty times (LH) that of the parent peptide and the increased potency and duration of action of the analogue lead to(More)
