MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are noncoding RNAs that act as negative regulators of gene expression. Interestingly, specific alterations of miRNA expression have been found in failing hearts of different etiologies. The aim of this study was to identify the miRNA expression pattern of peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) derived from chronic heart failure (CHF)(More)
Acute aortic dissection (AAD) is an event which may be rapidly fatal without early diagnosis and treatment. Aging is one of the main risk factors that could leading to AAD. To date, no specific biomarkers are available to increase the speed of diagnosis. CD40 ligand (CD40L), myeloperoxidase (MPO), matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-1, -2, -9 and(More)
CONTEXT Hypovitaminosis D frequently occurs in early life and increases with age. Vitamin D has been suggested to influence cardiac performance and N-terminal-pro-type B natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) release in adults with heart failure. OBJECTIVES To assess the vitamin D status and the impact of hypovitaminosis D on circulating NT-proBNP levels in(More)
Un impianto di “posta pneumatica”, anche noto come sistema di tubi pneumatici o tubi di Lamson, è un sistema di trasporto per recapitare oggetti in alcuni contenitori cilindrici che vengono propulsi attraverso una rete di tubi tramite l’aria compressa oppure il vuoto generato da pompe. Il lavoro descrive l’esperienza all’IRCCS Policlinico San Donato con(More)
We studied the effect of soluble fiber-enriched products on anthropometric and biochemical variables in 30 healthy non-obese, non-diabetic subjects. This was a randomized, controlled crossover, single-blind, dietary intervention study performed for 8 weeks. Subjects received an isocaloric diet with fiber-enriched products for the first 4 weeks and with(More)
Background. Anaemia is common in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), frequently resulting from a combination of iron deficiency and of anaemia of chronic disease (ACD). ACD is characterized by macrophage iron retention induced by proinflammatory cytokines. Hepcidin is the master inducer of iron accumulation during ACD, and its production is mainly regulated(More)
