A mixture of neutral short-chain galactooligosaccharides (scGOS) and long-chain fructooligosaccharides (lcFOS) has been shown to reduce the incidence of atopic dermatitis (AD) and infectious episodes during the first 6 mo of life. This dual protection occurred through the intervention period. The present study evaluated if these protective effects were(More)
BACKGROUND Oligosaccharides may alter postnatal immune development by influencing the constitution of gastrointestinal bacterial flora. AIMS To investigate the effect of a prebiotic mixture of galacto- and long chain fructo-oligosaccharides on the incidence of atopic dermatitis (AD) during the first six months of life in formula fed infants at high risk(More)
BACKGROUND Human milk oligosaccharides have been shown to stimulate selectively the growth of Bifidobacteria and Lactobacilli in the intestine. In this study, the bifidogenic effect of an experimental prebiotic oligosaccharide mixture consisting of low-molecular-weight galactooligosaccharides and high-molecular-weight fructooligosaccharides was analyzed in(More)
A mixture of neutral short chain galactooligosaccharides and long chain fructo-oligosaccharides (scGOS/lcFOS) has been shown to have prebiotic and immunomodulatory effects comparable to human milk oligosaccharides. This can be translated into clinical practice as a potential to prevent infections and allergy. The hypothesis of this study was that this(More)
Calcium excretion and absorption were evaluated in hypercalciuric calcium stone formers by the study of Sr2+ excretion and absorption after an oral load. Ca2+ stone formers (n = 140) were studied, and the results were compared in the 83 of them who had idiopathic hypercalciuria and in the 57 who had Ca2+ excretion within reference values. Hypercalciuric(More)
In order to study the relationship between circulating levels of CA 15-3 and the disease extent in predicting survival, we prospectively followed 312 breast cancer (BC) patients, from October 1988 to March 1995, from the time of first relapse. CA 15-3 values were assessed before treatment onset. Disease extent was defined as the percentage of liver or lung(More)
AIMS Recent data suggest that sub-clinical structural abnormalities may be part of the Brugada syndrome (BrS) phenotype, a disease traditionally thought to occur in the structurally normal heart. In this study, we carried out detailed assessment of cardiac morphology and function using cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMRI). METHODS AND RESULTS Thirty(More)
BACKGROUND A mixture of neutral prebiotic oligosaccharides has been shown to reduce the incidence of atopic dermatitis (AD) and allergy associated symptoms during the first 2 years of life. OBJECTIVE To evaluate if this protective effect against allergy lasted beyond the intervention period until 5 y of age. METHODS In a prospective, double blind,(More)
BACKGROUND Late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) predicts adverse prognosis in patients with stable coronary artery disease (CAD). However, the interaction with conventional risk factors remains uncertain. Our aim was to assess whether the extent of LGE is an independent predictor of adverse cardiac outcome beyond(More)
In a prospective, study involving 20 VLBW-infants (AGA), divided into two study groups of 10 infants, we have evaluated the effects on growth and metabolism of human milk fortified with ultrafiltrated human milk protein and a whey-predominant (whey/casein = 60/40) formula containing 2 g/dl of protein. The study was initiated at a mean age of 30 days when an(More)
