Influence of beta-endorphin on phytohemagglutinin-induced lymphocyte proliferation and on the expression of mononuclear cell surface antigens in vitro.
Phytohemagglutinin-induced lymphocyte proliferation was significantly inhibited by beta-endorphin, and the influence of beta- endorphin on the expression of mononuclear cell surface antigens using the OKT3, OKT4,OKT8, anti-HLA-DR and anti-beta 2-microglobulin monoclonal antibodies was evaluated.

24-hour thyroid-stimulating hormone secretory pattern in elderly men.
TSH levels in elderly subjects showed blunted circadian fluctuations compared to those seen in young adult subjects, and nighttime TSH values observed in elderly Subjects were lower than those recorded in young adults. Expand
Humoral immunity and lymphocyte subpopulations in patients with dilated cardiomyopathy.
The incidence of serum organ and non-organ specific autoantibodies, the peripheral blood lymphocyte blastogenic response to phytohaemagglutinin, concanavalin A and pokeweek mitogen, and the surfaceExpand
Stimulation of growth hormone release by thyrotropin-releasing hormone in elderly subjects.
The results suggest disorders in neurobiochemical mechanisms regulating hypothalamopituitary function in elderly men may be associated with abnormalities in growth hormone levels in men aged 74-88 years. Expand
A multicenter, randomized parallel double-blind study comparing three antibiotics, cephemic-cofosfolactamine, fosfomycin and cephalexin, in the treatment of systemic infections.
Results show that the percentage of recoveries of clinical symptoms and of bacterial eradications were significantly higher, and associated with a lower rate of side effects in the patients treated by cephemic cofosfolactamine than in those treating by cephalexin or fosfomycin. Expand

Changes of pituitary secretion after long-term treatment with hydergine, in elderly patients.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of long-term treatment with an ergot derivative, dihydroergotoxine mesylate (hydergine) 6 mg/day, on pituitary secretion on 10 elderly patients ofExpand
Changes of CSF prolactin induced by metoclopramide in man.
A sharp increase in serum and CSF prolactin (PRL) values after acute metoclopramide administration was found in six male patients without endocrine diseases, suggesting the possibility that CSF PRL content depends also on the retrograde transport from pituitary gland. Expand
A case in which severe hemorrhagic manifestations were successfully controlled by the use of thyroidin, a woman twenty years old, under-weight and whose hereditary antecedents are of no importance. Expand
