The effect of thymopentin (TP-5) treatment on lymphocyte immune functions has been investigated in immunocompromised aged subjects. TP-5 was able to improve the cutaneous delayed hypersensitivity (CDH) to recall antigens and the proliferative response to phytohemagglutinin (PHA), concanavalin A, and Pokeweed (PWM) as well as the PHA-induced interleukin-2(More)
Sera from 162 patients with acute or chronic hepatitis and from patients with autoimmune diseases have been investigated for autoantibodies by indirect immunofluorescence on human and animal tissues. A small proportion (14.2%) of young patients with chronic delta hepatitis has been found positive for cytoplasmic staining which was maximal in hepatocytes and(More)
Fifty patients suffering from chronic venous disease were treated for 30 days with heparan sulphate 100 mg per os, b.i.d., or mesoglycan 50 mg per os, t.i.d., in a single blind random study. Both therapies led to a marked improvement in comparison to basal clinical values, but patients treated with heparan sulphate showed the greatest and most rapid(More)
In 20 patients with nephrotic syndrome (10 minimal change glomerulonephritis, MCN; 10 focal glomerulosclerosis, FGS) the peripheral blood lymphocytes showed a statistically significant increase in IgG-bearing cells (SIgG-C) in comparison with 30 patients with other histological types of primary glomerulonephritis with and without nephrotic syndrome (14 and(More)
The effects of the oral administration of 100 or 200 mg of heparan sulphate or placebo over time were assessed in nine healthy volunteers. Blood samples were collected at 1, 2, 4, 6, 8 and 12 hours after administration to assay prothrombin activity, partially activated thromboplastin time, and the activation to tPA and PAI-1. A significant increase (P <(More)
A 60-year-old man affected by nonhealing midline granuloma (NHmG) is described. The histopathological features, the clinical course and the radiosensitivity of the lesion clearly differentiate this pathological condition from malignant lymphomas and from Wegener's granulomatosis (WG). The presence of antinuclear antibodies with an antinucleolar pattern in a(More)
