Lung uptake and excretion of n-hexane were studied in ten workers in a shoe factory. Simultaneous samples of inhaled and alveolar air were collected with the aid of a Rhan-Otis valve, personal samplers, and charcoal tubes. Alveolar excretion was monitored during a six hour postexposure period. Uptake was calculated from lung ventilation, the retention(More)
Individual responses to growth hormone (GH) treatment are variable. Short-term generation of insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) is recognized as a potential marker of sensitivity to GH treatment. This prospective, phase IV study used an integrated genomic analysis to identify markers associated with 1-month change in IGF-I (ΔIGF-I) following initiation of(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Onercept is a recombinant, soluble human p55 receptor to tumor necrosis factor-alpha. METHODS A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, dose-ranging trial was performed to evaluate the efficacy of onercept induction therapy in patients with Crohn's disease (CD). Patients (n = 207) with moderate-to-severe acute or chronic active(More)
BACKGROUND Accurately monitoring adherence to treatment with recombinant human growth hormone (r-hGH) enables appropriate intervention in cases of poor adherence. The electronic r-hGH auto-injector, easypod™, automatically records the patient's adherence to treatment. This study evaluated adherence to treatment of children who started using the(More)

Recombinant human growth hormone (r-hGH) is indicated for pediatric patients with a variety of growth disorders. Until recently, analysis of adherence to treatment has been limited by recall bias and reliance on self-reporting. Accurate recorded data on r-hGH use can now be collected using the easypod™ auto-injector. The multinational easypod™ connect(More)
Objectives: To evaluate if different levels of human herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6) antibodies can predict HIV disease progression. Design: Longitudinal study of individuals with a documented date of HIV seroconversion. Setting: Clinical centers located throughout Italy. Patients: Individuals who serconverted for HIV between 1983 and 1995 in Italy. Methods: Sera(More)
