Thirty patients aged 65-85 years, with refractory New York Heart Association (NYHA) class IV congestive heart failure (CHF) were treated with an intravenous infusion of furosemide (250-2000 mg/d) and small-volume hypertonic saline solution (150 mL of 1.4-4.6% NaCl) twice a day for 6 to 12 days. A daily fluid oral intake of 1000 mL and previous cardiac(More)
Thirty adult patients with distal, monolateral deep vein thrombosis of the lower limbs were randomly treated for sixty days either with subcutaneous Ca-Heparin or with Sulodexide, administered IM for ten days and orally for fifty days. The thrombus accretion above the knee, the venous pressures of the affected leg, the clinical symptomatology, and some(More)
Despite the extensive use of chromosomal microarray technologies in patients with neurodevelopmental disorders has permitted the identification of an increasing number of causative submicroscopic rearrangements throughout the genome, constitutional duplications involving chromosome 1q22 have seldom been described in those patients. We report on a pedigree(More)
Recent reports show that sumatriptan administration increases blood pressure and vascular resistance both in systemic and pulmonary circulation. This study was performed to evaluate by echo-Doppler technique the hemodynamic effects of subcutaneous sumatriptan administration. Forty-one migraine subjects (26 males, 15 females), mean age 36 +/- 2 years (range(More)
40 patients were evaluated for skin temperature changes from baseline measurements and after 6 mg subcutaneous sumatriptan administration. During examination, skin temperature were recorded on a color picture at 10', 20', 30', 60', 90' and 120 minutes after sumatriptan administration. At the some time, heart rate (HR), systolic (SBP), diastolic (BDP) blood(More)
Many authors have reported an association between the angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE)-D allele and coronary heart disease and other cardiovascular diseases. The mechanism underlying the positive associations between the ACE-D alleles and diseases are not yet clear. Previous reports showed an association between migraine without aura and ACE-D allele(More)
Molecular characterization of human female gametes should make it easier to understand the basis of certain infertility disorders. Biologically significant mRNAs have been analysed in single oocytes to search for molecular biomarkers of oocyte quality. Initial analysis was focused on mRNA for proteins involved in cell growth and cycle control, specifically(More)
Sumatriptan, a selective 5-hydroxy-triptamine (5-HT1) receptor agonist, has been used recently in the treatment of acute migraine. Some in vitro experiments suggested that sumatriptan has vasoactive properties in vascular beds distinct from cerebral circulation. In view of this we investigated the vascular effects of the standard 6 mg subcutaneous (s.c.)(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) probably influences the fibrinolytic system at a central point by converting angiotensin I to angiotensin II, which increases plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1) activity. This effect appears to be mediated in humans via the angiotensin II type 1 (AT(1)) receptor. The objective of this(More)
