Pattern electroretinograms (PERGs) in response to 8.3 Hz alternating gratings (16.6 rev/sec) of different spatial frequencies were recorded in normal subjects as well as in patients affected by early glaucoma and ocular hypertension. In normal subjects the PERG response is spatially tuned, with a maximum at about 1.5 cycles/deg and attenuation at higher and(More)

Among them, Chlamydia trachomatis (Ct) and herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2) cause symptomatic, subclinical and asymptomatic infections of the urogenital tract which can lead to serious sequelae. In the present study the coinfection and superinfection by Ct and HSV-2 in(More)
INTRODUCTION It is advisable to submit a patient with isolated HGPIN to re-biopsy every 3-6 months, performing an increasing number of samples in order to increase the detection rate. The aim of this study is to evaluate if the use of saturation needle biopsy technique may increase this rate. MATERIALS AND METHODS From January 2004 to June 2006, 780(More)
OBJECTIVE Aim of this study was to evaluate if saturation biopsy (SB) technique increases the cancer detection rate in patients with PSA < 10 ng/ml, after a first negative biopsy. MATERIAL AND METHODS From January 2004 to January 2006, 780 patients underwent prostate ultrasound guided transrectal (UGT) core biopsy: 186 (23.8%) presented prostate cancer(More)
