The patient-physician relationship can be conceived as a process of structuring an ill-structured emotional-cognitive problem. So, new methods should be developed in order to capture the relations among emotions and cognitions, and physicians should be educated to recognize the influence of emotions on medical decision-making. The paper describes GRASP, an(More)

Recently, many studies explored the role of inflammation parameters in the prognosis of urinary cancers, but the results were not consistent. The modified Glasgow Prognostic Score (mGPS), a systemic inflammation marker, is a prognostic marker in various types of cancers. The aim of the present study was to investigate the usefulness of the preoperative mGPS(More)
Cross-sectional studies suggest the association between diabetic nephropathy and the PPARγ2 Pro12Ala polymorphism of the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ2 (PPARγ2). Prospective data are limited to microalbuminuria and no information on renal function is available to date. The present study evaluates the association between the Pro12Ala(More)

Type 1 diabetes is characterized by autoimmune destruction of pancreatic β-cells in genetically susceptible individuals. Triggers of islet autoimmunity, time course, and the precise mechanisms responsible for the progressive β-cell failure are not completely understood. The recent escalation of obesity in affluent countries has been suggested to contribute(More)

Environmental pollutants, including endocrine disruptor chemicals (EDCs), interfere on human health, leading to hormonal, immune and metabolic perturbations. Bisphenol-A (BPA), a main component of polycarbonate plastics, has been receiving increased attention due to its worldwide distribution with a large exposure. In humans, BPA, for its estrogenic(More)

Ultraconserved regions (UCRs) have been shown to originate non-coding RNA transcripts (T-UCRs) that have different expression profiles and play functional roles in the pathophysiology of multiple cancers. The relevance of these functions to the pathogenesis of bladder cancer (BlCa) is speculative. To elucidate this relevance, we first used genome-wide(More)

BACKGROUND Recent studies suggest that vitamin D deficiency represents an additional cofactor of renal anemia, with several mechanisms accounting for this relationship. In line with it, the administration of vitamin D or its analogues has been associated with an improvement of anemia. There are no data, however, about a direct effect of paricalcitol on(More)
