The metabolism of propionate in adipose tissue and its effect on lipogenesis was investigated. Fasting induced changes in propionate metabolism of adipose tissue, drastically reducing higher fatty acid synthesis and increasing glyceride-glyerol formation from low concentrations of propionate (0.25 mM). Propionate also promoted lipogenesis from(More)

OBJECTIVE We evaluated the contribution of the human papilloma virus (HPV) load in planning follow-up and management of women post cone biopsy for high-grade cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN2-3). METHODS Ninety-six suitable women were followed-up by Pap smears: two consecutive abnormal smears dictated referral for colposcopy-directed biopsy. Before(More)
OBJECTIVES Loop electrosurgical excision of the transformation zone (LEETZ) was recently associated with relatively high failure rates. We evaluated whether the combination of LEETZ with laser vaporization is superior to LEETZ alone in reducing the rates of recurrent abnormal cytology and residual disease. METHODS The study population included 426 women(More)

METHODS The study cohort consisted of 314 women with histological diagnosis of CIN1(More)
This study aimed to evaluate the clinical and economic implications of integrating human papilloma virus (HPV) load testing into the follow-up and management protocol of women postconisation for high-grade cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN2-3). We evaluated 130 suitable women: 63 were screened biannually by Pap smears ('conventional approach') and 67(More)
