Validation of the differential prognostic impact of type 1/type 1-like versus type 2/type 2-like CALR mutations in myelofibrosis The discovery of mutations in calreticulin (CALR) in patients with primary myelofibrosis (PMF) 1,2 prompted a reappraisal of the clinical correlates and prognostic impact of the so-called driver mutations that include JAK2V617F,(More)
Estimation of age of skeletal remains is one of the most complex questions for anthropologists. The most common macroscopic methods are based on dental wear and histological evaluation of bone remodeling. These methods are often qualitative, require great technical expertise, and have proved inexact in the estimation of ages over 50 years. Certain dental(More)
To evaluate the influence of an hydrophilic statin, pravastatin, on adrenal and testicular steroidogenesis and spermatogenesis, eight male hypercholesterolemic patients were studied. All patients observed a hypocholesterolemic diet and received placebo for 4 weeks followed by pravastatin (20 mg/die) for 6 months. Before, during (4th-5th week) and at the end(More)
The aim of our study was to assess the frequency of 21-hydroxylase deficiency, a cause of congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH), in incidentally discovered asymptomatic adrenal masses (incidentalomas) and to compare the prevalence of this enzymatic disorder in monolateral (M) and bilateral (B) forms. Twenty-seven patients with incidentalomas (12 M and 15 B)(More)
Insulin resistance and compensatory hyperinsulinaemia commonly occur in patients with untreated essential hypertension. The coexistence of insulin resistance and hypertension can be viewed as a cause-effect relationship (insulin resistance as a cause of hypertension or vice versa) or as a noncausal association. Insulin can increase blood pressure via(More)
