BACKGROUND Comparative studies of proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) have revealed that acid reflux is influenced by PPI treatment, formulations and dosing regimens. Wireless pH capsules have circumvented some of the limitations of conventional catheter-based pH testing with the additional advantage of 96-h recording periods. AIM To clarify the effectiveness(More)
BACKGROUND Chronic refractory pouchitis is a long-term complication after ileal pouch-anal anastomosis and it may be associated with ileal inflammation. AIM To determine the efficacy of infliximab in treatment of chronic refractory pouchitis complicated by ileitis, using a wireless capsule endoscopy. METHODS Sixteen patients with chronic refractory(More)
Intestinal microbiota is essential for gut homeostasis. Specifically, the microorganisms inhabiting the gut lumen interact with the intestinal immune system, supply key nutrients for the major components of the gut wall, and modulate energy metabolism. Host-microbiome interactions can be either beneficial or deleterious, driving gastrointestinal lymphoid(More)
This cross-sectional study was aimed at evaluating in a large sample of male foundry workers the current exposure levels to carcinogenic compounds, including metallic elements [arsenic (As), beryllium (Be), cadmium (Cd), chromium (Cr), nickel (Ni)] and aromatic polycyclic hydrocarbons (PAH) by a biological monitoring approach, using validated biomarkers of(More)
The comprehensive Gas Aerosol Modelling Evaluation System (GAMES) was used to investigate the impact of EU Directives on road traffic emissions scheduled for 2010 on photochemical pollution. The area under study is located in Northern Italy, where orographic features and the emissive mix represent a critical issue in ozone production and accumulation(More)
AIM To evaluate esophageal mucosal defense mechanisms at an epithelial level to establish if pantoprazole treatment can induce ultrastructural healing and improvement in the proliferation activity of the esophageal epithelium in gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). METHODS This was a single-blinded study for pH-monitoring, and histological,(More)
The recycle of metal scraps is one of the most important industrial activity of Brescia: almost 40% of the metal scraps produced in Italy are reprocessed in this Province. The melting process currently used produces air emissions containing dioxins, PCB and other pollutants which are dispersed in the atmosphere giving a contribution to the general(More)
Ozone production and accumulation in troposphere phere are nonlinear processes, forced by precursor emissions, either from anthropogenic or natural sources, and solar radiation. Furthermore, photochemical pollution can be locally produced or can due to transboundary processes. Because of the problem complexity, mathematical model represents a useful tool(More)
OBJECTIVE Benign pancreatic hyperenzymemia is characterized by a long-term increase of serum pancreatic enzymes in otherwise healthy subjects. This study was designed to determine (a) whether all pancreatic enzymes are elevated, (b) the extent of each enzyme increase, (c) the relative frequency of the familial form, and (d) the relative frequencies of(More)
