AIM Fermented Papaya Preparation (FPP) is a natural healthy drug that has been commercially sold in Japan and Philippines. This nutricetive, bio-normalizer product has antioxidant action, inhibitory effect on oxidative DNA damage and tissue injury, being a potent OH scavanger. The wide use of FPP, expecially by elderly people, made us note an unknown(More)
Joint hypermobility syndrome (JHS) and Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, hypermobility type (EDS-HT) are two clinically overlapping heritable connective tissue disorders strongly associating with pain, fatigue and other secondary aspects. Though not considered a diagnostic criterion for most EDS subtypes, cardiovascular involvement is a well-known complication in(More)
Cardiac involvement has been studied quite extensively in patients affected by inflammatory bowel disease but, as of now, there is no data regarding QT alterations which are well known to be linked to the risk of dangerous arrhythmias. In this study, QT parameters were digitally measured on standard 12-lead ECG in a population of 20 patients affected by(More)
INTRODUCTION Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAIs) are an important cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide and have a significant economic impact for health systems. Molecular epidemiology tools have a central role in HAI prevention programs. In order to give an overview of their specific advantages and disadvantages we reported current and new(More)
Since its clinical definition in 1987, the syndrome called, "periodic fever, aphtous stomatitis, pharyngitis and cervical adenitis" syndrome (PFAPA) has been considered peculiar to pediatric age. In the recent literature there are a few case reports of PFAPA in adults. We describe a case of a 21-year-old female affected by PFAPA who presented a history of(More)
PURPOSE The present study investigated the blood pressure (BP) load (L), namely Baric Impact (BI), in normotensives with and without endothelial dysfunction (ED). The aim was to detect baric differences supporting the thesis that the ED is associated with vasopressant effects that are responsible for a paraphysiological condition of higher BP(More)
BACKGROUND The concomitant occurrence of atherosclerotic plaques in carotid, coronary and peripheral vessels has been described in a number of studies. A few studies were, on the contrary, done for determining the role of hypertension and/or type 2 diabetes mellitus for the occurrence of the atherosclerotic plaques in different anatomical sites. Moreover(More)
PURPOSE The present study investigates the blood pressure (BP) 24-h values in normotensives with and without endothelial dysfunction (ED). The scope is to detect differences in BP regimen supporting the hypothesis that the ED is associated with vasopressant effects that can cause a condition of "pre-hypertension". MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-eight(More)
BACKGROUND Hypercalcemia induces arrhythmias and shortening of QT. The aim of this study was to investigate risk factors for occurrence of arrhythmias in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) during bicycle ergometer exercise test (ET). METHODS Thirty PHPT postmenopausal women (mean age, 60·9 ± 8·0 years) and 30, sex and age-matched, controls(More)
