We studied the effect of maternal serum on the surface IgD of newborn lymphocytes in the presence of protease inhibitors (epsilon-aminocaproic acid and Trasylol). Contact with maternal serum caused a significant reduction (p less than 0.000001) in the percentage of neonatal IgD-positive cells. The addition of either epsilon-aminocaproic acid or Trasylol(More)
AIM The duration of therapy represents a fundamental aspect in the compliance to the therapy of child pathologies, such as pharyngotonsillitis, treated with oral therapy. Although penicillin and amoxicillin are the first choice antibiotics in the case of a child suffering from pharyngotonsillitis with the proven presence of Group A β-hemolytic Streptococcus(More)
BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIMS Gastric juice may represent a valuable source of clinicopathological information if properly analyzed. We evaluated the reliability and clinical validity of data obtained using an innovative device (the "Mt 21-42") that analyzes gastric juice, thus allowing the identification of Helicobacter pylori infection and atrophic gastritis(More)
AIM Esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGDS) cannot identify microscopic lesions. We determined the contribution of real-time gastric juice analysis in detecting lesions non-detectable with the simple endoscopic inspection. METHODS Endoscopy, histology and gastric juice analysis were performed in 216 patients. We assessed six diagnostic strategies: EGDS(More)
To evidentiate a participation clinically not evident of thrombocytes during viral infections, the Authors performed platelets count in 207 children of age varying 7 months to 12 years from the diagnosis and during the course of the illness. A subclinical thrombocytopenia was revealed in 55% of children affected by measles, in 25% of mumps, in 45% of(More)
The authors describe 5 cases with a pathology peculiar to the superior calyces due to vascular compression, observed from 1969 to 1975 among 938 urographic tests performed in the Pediatric Clinic of Florence. Three of these cases have been checked up to this date. In every patient the urographic tests show clear evidence of a vascular compression at the(More)
