This concept is reinforced by the results of a recent meta-analysis of the use of NA in patients with recent-onset Type 1 diabetes. METHODS In this study we compared two(More)
In a pilot study, the metabolic effects of continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII) versus intensive subcutaneous insulin therapy (ISIT) started at diagnosis in patients with Type 1 diabetes and continued for a 2-year period were evaluated and compared. Twenty-three patients (between 12 and 35 years old, mean +/- SD 18.4 +/- 9 years) were randomized(More)

Hydatid cyst disease still is a serious public-health problem in endemic areas. It is a tissue infestation caused by the larval stage of a parasite, Echinococcus granulosus. Although liver and lung are the most commonly involved organs, hydatid disease can occur in all viscera and soft tissues. In 10% of cases, hydatid disease arises in the viscera: mainly(More)
Cell mediated immune response in vitro to a number of antigens has been reported in patients with Type 1 diabetes. The aim of the present study was to develop an in vivo intradermal (delayed type hypersensitivity) skin test using antigens known to be recognized by lymphocytes of patients with Type 1 diabetes and to compare, where possible, the in vivo(More)
BACKGROUND The continuous demand for sanitary care from the imprisoned patients to the general public hospitals has carried to the creation of dedicated structures like the Complex Protected Medicine Structure (SCMP) at the Hospital Sandro Pertini of Rome. Aim of this study was to present the preliminary epidemiologic-clinical data gathered from July 26th(More)
After a consultation of the literature on branchial cleft defects and double neoplastic pathology, it was decided to report the case of a patient given a cystectomy for bladder cancer (1983) and referred to hospital four years later with branchial cyst that had developed into epidermoid cancer.
