A broad consensus does exist among main authors on the importance of parafunctional habits in the etiopathogenesis of temporomandibular disorders (TMD). Mechanisms through which an intense parafunctional activity determined a pathological effect on the temporomandibular joints (TMJs) and their related structures have still not been definitively clarified;(More)
The blood O2-carrying capacity is maintained by the O2-regulated production of erythropoietin (Epo), which stimulates the proliferation and survival of red blood cell progenitors. Epo has been thought to act exclusively on erythroid progenitor cells. However, recent studies have identified the erythropoietin receptor (EpoR) in other cells, such as neurons,(More)
Myokines are likely to be involved in the whole-body metabolic adaptive changes that occur in response to regular exercise. We aimed to investigate the association of the two myokines (adropin and apelin) with physical performance in professional soccer players. To this purpose, we analyzed the fluctuations of circulating levels of both adropin and apelin(More)
In recent years, several systems have been developed to control cardiac function during exercise, and some are also capable of recording RR data to provide heart rate variability (HRV) analyses. In this study we compare time between heart beats and HRV parameters obtained with a smart textile system (GOW; Weartech sl., Spain) and an electrocardiogram(More)
To the Editor. We have read with interest the recently published article by Wiewióra et al. [7] regarding hemorheological differences related to gender in morbidly obese subjects. In this study authors found several hemorheological differences between male and female. In this sense, males showed higher blood viscosity and higher erythrocyte deformability(More)
The aim of this work is giving, through a wide literature review, a detailed analysis of the histological and ultrastructural characteristics that distinguish masseter and temporal muscles from the other skeletal muscles. Furthermore we'll explain the functional meanings of these differences. We developed the following points: fibre type composition and(More)
