We have investigated on eventual relationships existing in men between plasma levels of 17-a-OH-Progesterone (17-a-OH-P) and, plasma levels of Testosterone (T) and on the modifications of these relationships after stimulation of the testicles by HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin). An inverse correlation exists between basal plasma levels of the two steroids(More)
A considerable body of evidence is available indicating a paracrine relationship between the seminiferous tubules and the Leydig cells. In 113 adult subjects in basal conditions the blood levels were determined of FSH (follicle stimulating hormone), LH (luteinizing hormone), 17-alpha-OH-P (17-alpha-OH-progesterone) and T (testosterone) either as a whole or(More)
Glatiramer acetate (GA) is a widely used treatment for multiple sclerosis (MS), with incompletely defined mechanism of action. Short-term studies suggested its involvement in the modulation of anti-inflammatory cytokines and regulatory T cells (Treg), while long-term effect is still unknown. To investigate this aspect, we analyzed by flow-cytometry(More)
