AIM Gastric juice may constitute a precious source of clinicopathological information. We assessed the usefulness of real-time, perendoscopic, gastric juice pH determination in identifying preneoplastic conditions of the stomach, that often escape the mere endoscopic evaluation. METHODS The study included 245 patients (115M; 130F; age 47±17). In each of(More)
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)
The authors examined 91 adult diabetic subjects to evidence any possible correlation between the levels of serum chromium and those of cholesterol, triglycerides and lipoprotein. The calculation of Bravais Galton's correlation coefficient did not reveal any correlation between these parameters. However the authors confirmed that the levels of serum chromium(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)
Background “Enuresis “ also known as bedwetting or night-time incontinence is the inability to control urination during sleep [1,2]. Mono-symptomatic enuresis (MNE) is the only night-time incontinence and “not mono-symptomatic enuresis” (NMNE) is also the daytime urinary disorders. Bedwetting is a disorder that affects the development of children(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)
