Proteomic approach in the identification of fertility pattern in seminal plasma of fertile men.
TLDR
The identification of common seminal plasma proteome in fertile men could provide better insight into the physiology of male fertility and might identify novel markers of male infertility. Expand
Double pituitary adenomas
TLDR
The case of a 60-year-old male patient whose medical history began in 2002 with erectile dysfunction, and histologic examination confirmed a pituitary adenoma, which has been shrunk by medical treatment. Expand
The long-term cardiovascular outcome of different GH-lowering treatments in acromegaly
TLDR
The data appear to show that for echographic parameters medical treatment additive beneficial effects is compared to neurosurgery alone, and SSA also appears to contribute to the improvement of acromegalic cardiomyopathy also in patients who did not achieve biochemical control of the disease. Expand
Effects of ghrelin administration on endocrine and metabolic parameters in obese women with polycystic ovary syndrome
TLDR
In both obese and PCOS obese patients, leptin levels are not influenced by gh Relin administration, and the GH response after ghrelin administration is blunted, however, ghrelIn exerts glucose-enhancing and insulin-lowering effects, the latter absent in NW. Expand
Second generation ultrasonographic contrast agents in the diagnosis of neoplastic thyroid nodules.
TLDR
Preliminary data of this pilot study suggest that ultrasound contrast agent technique has a limited invasivity and is more expensive than Fine Niddle Aspiration (FNA), but might prove useful, to differentiate benign from malignant thyroid nodules. Expand
Pituitary‐tumour‐transforming‐gene 1 expression in testicular cancer
TLDR
The pituitary‐tumour‐transforming‐gene 1 (PTTG1) expression pattern in normal testis, CIS and testicular cancer is identified and the functional activity of PTTG1 in testicular oncogenesis is clarified. Expand
Male Fertility and Reduction in Semen Parameters: A Single Tertiary-Care Center Experience
TLDR
The data highlights the possibility of a spontaneous conception with semen parameters below WHO reference values and supports the importance of defining reference values on a population of fertile men. Expand
Total antioxidant capacity in patients with varicoceles.
TLDR
The augmented Lag values could indicate an ineffective utilization of antioxidants in oligospermic-Var, while in normo-VAR the direct correlation between TAC and motility suggest a potential protective role toward sperm motility. Expand
Proteomics of human seminal plasma: Identification of biomarker candidates for fertility and infertility and the evolution of technology
TLDR
This article reviews the proteomic methods, such as one dimensional polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (1D–PAGE), two‐dimensional polyacylamide Gel electrophoreis (2D– PAGE), and mass spectrometry (MS), employed to detect human SP markers involved in fertility and infertility. Expand
Relationship between sperm cell ubiquinone and seminal parameters in subjects with and without varicocele
TLDR
In nonvaricocele subjects it was observed that a higher concentration of Coenzyme Q 10 was present in the spermatozoa of oligos permic and asthenospermic patients, but this relationship was not observed in varicocele Subjects, who also showed slightly lower intracellular absolute values of the coenzyme.
