The role of antioxidant therapy in the treatment of male infertility: an overview.
TLDR
Since there is no linear correlation between sperm quality and pregnancy rates, an improvement in semen parameters should not be the sole outcome considered in studies of antioxidant therapies, and more multicentre, double-blind studies performed with the same criteria are necessary for an increased understanding of the effects of various antioxidants on fertility.

Detection rate of FNA cytology in medullary thyroid carcinoma: a meta‐analysis
TLDR
A meta‐analysis of published data on the diagnostic performance of FNAC in MTC is conducted to provide more robust estimates and to improve patient prognosis. Expand
Pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating polypeptide regulates rat Leydig cell function in vitro
TLDR
It is demonstrated that PACAP-38 is able to activate both cAMP- and phosphatidylinositol-dependent mechanisms in Leydig cells and indicate that the peptide exerts an amplificatory action on testicular steroidogenesis stimulated by hCG, and that this activity is receptor-mediated, as it is prevented by a PACAP receptor antagonist.

Salivary steroids at rest and after a training load in young male athletes: relationship with chronological age and pubertal development.
TLDR
The presence of high inter-individual variability of different biological parameters (anthropometry, pubertal stage, hormones, etc.) within athletes selected by chronological age in the same class and the presence of significant correlations between chronological age, puberty and the steroid hormone responses to physical exercise are observed. Expand
The use of core needle biopsy as first-line in diagnosis of thyroid nodules reduces false negative and inconclusive data reported by fine-needle aspiration
TLDR
CNB can reduce the false negative and inconclusive results of conventional FNA and should be considered a first-line method in assessing solid thyroid nodules at high risk of malignancy. Expand
Medullary thyroid cancer diagnosis: An appraisal
TLDR
An easy‐to‐use guide reviewing the main issues of MTC diagnosis, including basal serum calcitonin, stimulated serum calcium, additional serum markers for MTC, ultrasound and other imaging techniques, and scope of the problem are provided. Expand
Should we use ultrasound features associated with papillary thyroid cancer in diagnosing medullary thyroid cancer?
TLDR
Low frequency of ultrasound features associated to PTC when analyzed in medullary cancer is showed, advice for further prospective studies on larger series to define the US presentation of this cancer type. Expand
Calcitonin measurement in aspiration needle washout fluids has higher sensitivity than cytology in detecting medullary thyroid cancer: a retrospective multicentre study
TLDR
The aim of this study is to compare the sensitivity of FNA‐CT and cytology in detecting MTC and to assess a cut‐off value of F NA‐CT for clinical practice. Expand
Patient’s comfort with and tolerability of thyroid core needle biopsy
TLDR
The results from a questionnaire evaluating patients’ comfort level showed no significant difference between the tolerability of CNB and FNA, and suggests that CNB may be performed with a reasonable level of patient comfort. Expand
Ultrasound features of medullary thyroid carcinoma correlate with cancer aggressiveness: a retrospective multicenter study
TLDR
This study showed that sonographically suspicious MTC is frequently associated with features of aggressiveness, suggesting that careful preoperative US of MTC patients may better plan their surgical approach. Expand
