Myo-inositol administration positively affects hyperinsulinemia and hormonal parameters in overweight patients with polycystic ovary syndrome
Objective. To evaluate the effects the administration of myo-inositol (MYO) on hormonal parameters in a group of PCOS patients. Design. Controlled clinical study. Setting. PCOS patients in a clinicalExpand
Metformin administration modulates neurosteroids secretion in non-obese amenorrhoic patients with polycystic ovary syndrome
Background. Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common endocrine disease that is observed frequently to be related to increased insulin resistance. The use of insulin-sensitizer compounds, such asExpand
Metformin administration is more effective when non-obese patients with polycystic ovary syndrome show both hyperandrogenism and hyperinsulinemia
Background. Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common endocrine disease that is frequently observed to be related to increased insulin resistance independent of body weight. The use ofExpand
First Report of a γ 3-Proteobacterium Associated with Diseased Strawberries in Italy.
During the fall seasons of 2005 and 2006, diseased strawberry plants (Fragaria × ananassa Duch.) were observed in nurseries and production fields in Ferrara, Forli-Cesena, and Ravenna provincesExpand
Diagnostic and Therapeutic Approach to Hypothalamic Amenorrhea
Abstract:  Hypothalamic amenorrhea (HA) is a secondary amenorrhea with no evidence of endocrine/systemic causal factors, mainly related to various stressors affecting neuroendocrine control of theExpand
Hypothalamic amenorrhea: from diagnosis to therapeutical approach.
Among secondary amenorrheas, hypothalamic amenorrhea (HA) is the one with no evidence of endocrine/systemic causal factors. HA is mainly related to various stressors affecting neuroendocrine controlExpand
Use of Metformin in the Treatment of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome
Metformin is quite an old drug, but it is optimal for the control of glycemia in Type 2 diabetes. It was reported, 15 years ago, that insulin resistance was abnormally high in most polycystic ovaryExpand
Agroinoculation of Beet necrotic yellow vein virus cDNA clones results in plant systemic infection and efficient Polymyxa betae transmission.
Agroinoculation is a quick and easy method for the infection of plants with viruses. This method involves the infiltration of tissue with a suspension of Agrobacterium tumefaciens carrying binaryExpand
Beet soil-borne mosaic virus RNA-4 encodes a 32 kDa protein involved in symptom expression and in virus transmission through Polymyxa betae.
Beet soil-borne mosaic virus (BSBMV), like Beet necrotic yellow vein virus (BNYVV), is a member of the Benyvirus genus and both are transmitted by Polymyxa betae. Both viruses possess a similarExpand
Acetyl-L-carnitine (ALC) administration positively affects reproductive axis in hypogonadotropic women with functional hypothalamic amenorrhea.
BACKGROUND Hypothalamic amenorrhea (HA) is characterized by neuroendocrine impairment that, in turn, negatively modulates endocrine function, mainly within the reproductive axis. HA presents withExpand
