A randomized double-blind multicentre clinical trial was carried out to verify the effectiveness and tolerance of S-adenosylmethionine (SAMe) versus ibuprofen in 150 patients with hip and/or knee osteoarthritis. Both drugs were given orally 400 mg thrice daily for 30 days. SAMe exhibited a slightly more marked activity than the reference drug in the(More)
Using metaphase chromosome spreads as substrate for indirect immunofluorescence technic, we observed anticentromere antibody in three of twenty-five patients affected with various clinical forms of localized scleroderma. Anticentromere antibody is generally considered a serologic marker of the CREST syndrome, a more benign subset of systemic sclerosis.(More)
Oesophageal motility and lower oesophageal sphincter (LOS) competence were investigated in 13 patients with progressive systemic sclerosis (PSS) and in 16 patients with localized scleroderma (LS) by means of oesophageal manometry and 24-h pH monitoring of the distal oesophagus. Results were compared with those of a control group consisting of asymptomatic(More)

He had been treated intermittently from May 2001 to November 2004 with intravenously (i.v.) administered cyclophosphamide and high doses of prednisone due to unrelenting proteinuria. In November 2004, he(More)
The case of a patient with progressive systemic sclerosis (PSS) who developed electro- and vectorcardiographic patterns of myocardial necrosis without clinical picture of myocardial infarction is reported. The coronarography showed no obstruction of coronary arteries and cineventriculography a hypodynamic enlarged left ventricle. The analysis of(More)
Clinical, radiological and scintigraphic studies and HLA type assessment were performed in 38 subjects, constituting all the first-degree members of three generations of the families of six patients affected with ankylosing spondylitis (AS). The families included both parents, all siblings and all children of the probands. Definite AS was found in three men(More)
During the school year 1974-75 serum cholesterol has been evaluated in the whole school population (520 subjects, 268 males and 252 females, age ranging from 6 to 14 years) of Saccolongo, a village which is about 20 kilometers from Padova (Italy) and serum triglycerides have been further evaluated in a random population of 161 subjects (90 males and 71(More)
Vemurafenib is a chemotherapeutic BRAF inhibitor, or dabrafenib, that has been FDA-approved for treatment in metastatic melanoma positive for the V600E mutation. BRAF inhibitors, including vemurafenib, are linked to the development of cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma and keratoacanthoma. Furthermore, pathological analysis has shown these secondary tumors(More)
