The purpose of this study was to examine the relationships between androgenic status and plasma levels of both prothrombotic and antithrombotic factors in men, irrespective of obesity, body fat distribution, and metabolic parameters. Sixty-four apparently healthy men, 40 with a body mass index (BMI) greater than 25 kg/m2 (overweight and obese [OO]) and 24(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the influence of obesity and body fat distribution on serum levels of ceruloplasmin, a risk factor for myocardial infarction. DESIGN Fasting concentrations of ceruloplasmin, insulin, glucose, lipid pattern (cholesterol, LDL-cholesterol, HDL-cholesterol, triglycerides), blood pressure levels, and body fat distribution were(More)
Pseudomonas aeruginosa is resistant to a wide range of antibiotics, thus making troublesome the infection treatment. Efflux systems are the main mechanisms involved; among these, MexAB-OprM is a tripartite efflux pump responsible for resistance to ciprofloxacin, aztreonam, gentamicin, tetracycline and tobramycin. In an attempt to contrast antibiotic efflux,(More)
Testosterone levels are decreased in obese men but increased in obese women. The interplay between gonadal steroids and leptin is, at present, far from being elucidated. This study was carried out to investigate the relationship between serum leptin, plasma insulin, insulin sensitivity and free testosterone in 46 men (29 obese and 17 lean) and 65(More)
Cathechins and flavonoids are responsible of numerous health benefits. Two of the most representatives' compounds for their antioxidant and therapeutic effects are Epigallocatechin 3-Gallate (EGCG), from green tea extracts, and morelloflavone (MF), from Garcinia dulcis. Here we explore, by atomistic Molecular Dynamics simulations, how EGCG and MF interact(More)
Liposomes are versatile platforms to carry anticancer drugs in targeted drug delivery; they can be surface modified by different strategies and, when coupled with targeting ligands, are able to increase cellular internalisation and organelle-specific drug delivery. An interesting strategy of antitumoral therapy could involve the use of lysosomotropic(More)
The present work was designed to study the mechanisms associated with Nurr1 modulation following early life permethrin (PERM) treatment during rat's life span. Here we demonstrate that PERM exposure in rats, at a dose close to No Observed Adverse Effect Level (NOAEL) for 15days during neonatal brain development leads to its accumulation long after exposure.(More)
