In this double-blind, randomized, parallel group, multicentre study the efficacy of a fixed combination of indomethacin, prochlorperazine, and caffeine (IndoProCaf) and nimesulide were compared over an 8-h period in the treatment of two consecutive episodes of tension-type headache (TTH). Both drugs were administered orally. Of 54 randomized patients, 40(More)
IGF-1 decline has been related to age-dependent cognitive impairment and dementia. No study examined IGF-1 levels in subjects with a risk factor for brain damage such as hypertension. We investigated the relationship between IGF-1, cognitive functioning and neuroimaging in a sample of 75 hypertensive elderly subjects aged > 65. Cognitive performance were(More)
The definition of the risk of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) recurrence after resection represents a central issue to improve the clinical management of patients. In this study we examined the prognostic relevance of infiltrating immune cell subsets in the tumor (TIL) and in nontumorous (NT) liver (LIL), and the expression of immune-related and(More)
Luteinizing hormone (LH) and choriogonadotropin (hCG) are glycoprotein hormones regulating ovarian function and pregnancy, respectively. Since these molecules act on the same receptor (LHCGR), they were traditionally assumed as equivalent in assisted reproduction techniques (ART), although differences between LH and hCG were demonstrated at molecular and(More)
BACKGROUND Human luteinizing hormone (LH) and chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) are glycoprotein hormones regulating development and reproductive functions by acting on the same receptor (LHCGR). We compared the LH and hCG activity in gonadal cells from male mouse in vitro, i.e. primary Leydig cells, which is a common tool used for gonadotropin bioassay. Murine(More)
TNF-α has a central role in the development and maintenance of psoriatic plaques, and its serum levels correlate with disease activity. Anti-TNF-α drugs are, however, ineffective in a relevant percentage of patients for reasons that are currently unknown. To understand whether the response to anti-TNF-α drugs is influenced by the production of anti-drug(More)
BACKGROUND An accurate and affordable CD4+ T cells count is an essential tool in the fight against HIV/AIDS. Flow cytometry (FCM) is the "gold standard" for counting such cells, but this technique is expensive and requires sophisticated equipment, temperature-sensitive monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) and trained personnel. The lack of access to technical(More)
Tau protein is a phosphorylated microtubule-associated protein, principally localized at neuronal level in the central nervous system (CNS). Tau levels in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) are considered to index both axonal and neuronal damage. To date, however, no study has specifically evaluated the CSF levels of tau proteins in patients with status(More)
Molti strumenti, basati su diverse tecnologie, sono in uso da alcuni anni per misurare la funzionalità piastrinica ex vivo. L’aggregometria a impedenza (multiple electrode aggregometry, MEA) è uno di questi sistemi di monitoraggio: l’aggregazione piastrinica nel sangue intero viene misurata dalle modifiche di impedenza elettrica causate dall’adesione delle(More)
Oxidative attack to DNA is of particular interest since DNA modifications can lead to heritable mutations. The most studied product of DNA oxidation is 8-oxo-7,8-dihydro-2'-deoxyguanosine (8-oxodG). While 8-oxodG determination in blood and tissue cells is prone to artifacts, its measurement in urine employing liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry(More)
