In the last decades, management of epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) has been based on the staging system of the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO), and different classifications have been proposed for EOC that take account of grade of differentiation, histological subtype, and clinical features. However, despite taxonomic efforts,(More)
BACKGROUND Clinical trials have shown the therapeutic effect of fingolimod in reducing disease activity in relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RR-MS), but its influence on nervous conduction assessed by evoked potentials (EPs) has not been previously investigated. METHODS EP data of 20 patients examined 12months prior to initiation of fingolimod(More)
BACKGROUND Multiple Sclerosis is a heterogeneous disorders involving in early stage gait and balance. Together with immunomodulating therapies, rehabilitation had a crucial role in improving motor tasks and quality of life. Between the emerging techniques, Focal Vibrations (FV) could play a role, but they have been used in MS only to reduce muscle tone and(More)
Previous studies have reported an involvement of neuroactive steroids as neuroprotective and anti-inflammatory agents in neurological disorders such as multiple sclerosis (MS); an analysis of their profile during a specific clinical phase of MS is largely unknown. The pregnenolone (PREG), dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), and allopregnanolone (ALLO) profile(More)
Approximately 5–10% of breast cancers are hereditary and their biology and prognosis appear to differ from those of sporadic breast cancers. In this study we compared the biological features and clinical characteristics of non metastatic breast cancer in patients with BRCA mutations versus patients with a family history suggesting hereditary breast cancer(More)
Chiari malformations (CM) are a group of anomalies involving the hindbrain and the cervical spinal cord. Type I, II and III have in common the descent of the cerebellar tonsils and midbrain into the cervical spinal canal through the foramen magnum [1], while type IV is characterized by severe cerebellar hypoplasia [2]. Usually, it is a disorder of(More)
Objective Cognitive functions have been largely investigated in multiple sclerosis. Less attention has been paid to social communication abilities, despite their presumptive affect on quality of life. We run the first comprehensive assessment of pragmatic skills in multiple sclerosis, evaluating also the relationship between pragmatics and other cognitive(More)
Dear Editor, Multiple sclerosis (MS) is the most common inflammatory disease of the central nervous system, and interferon beta-1a (IFN-β1a) is a valuable medication in the treatment of the relapsing-remitting form of MS (RR MS). Porphyria cutanea tarda (PCT), which is the most frequent type of porphyria, is the result of a catalytic deficiency of(More)
