Anthelmintic resistance is widely distributed in small ruminants throughout the world. The extension of resistance seems lower in southern European countries and has not been reported previously in Italy. In the present study, resistance to benzimidazoles, levamisole and ivermectin was evaluated in a multi-breed goat farm of southern Italy. The farm had a(More)
__________________________________________________________________________________ Abstract A study was carried out in Southern Italy on 90 Siriana breed goats with naturally occurring infections of gastrointestinal nematodes. Six similar groups of 15 goats were formed, one untreated control group and five groups treated once with ivermectin (I treatment)(More)
The present study evaluated the effectiveness of micronized palmitoylethanolamide (PEA-m) treatment in reducing the painful symptoms experienced by diabetic patients with peripheral neuropathy. PEA-m, a fatty acid amide of the N-acylethanolamine family, was administered (300 mg twice daily) to 30 diabetic patients suffering from painful diabetic neuropathy.(More)
The incidence of type 2 diabetes increases with age (1), and elderly people with this disease may be particularly susceptible to hypoglycemia due to long-acting oral antidiabetic drugs (OADs). The American Geriatric Society clinical guidelines on type 2 diabetes treatment in elderly people report that short-acting hypoglycemic agents are preferable to(More)
Gastrointestinal (GI) strongyle infections remain one of the main constraints to goat production worldwide. Although several indicators of GI strongyle infections have been proposed, faecal egg count (FEC) techniques are the most common approaches for the estimation of prevalence and intensity of these parasites. However, FEC may be subjected to a(More)
The present paper was aimed at assessing the benefit of strategic anthelmintic treatments on milk production in four commercial dairy sheep farms in Southern Italy whose animals were naturally infected by gastrointestinal (GI) strongyles and Dicrocoelium dendriticum. The scheme was based on two treatments timed in relationship to parturition, i.e. the first(More)
The aim of the present paper was to assess benefit of strategic anthelmintic treatments on milk production in six commercial dairy sheep farms, located in southern Italy, whose animals were naturally infected with gastrointestinal strongyles. On each farm, two similar groups were formed, one untreated control group and one treated group. In all the treated(More)

BACKGROUND In Giarre, Sicily, we have created a diabetes center in which the medical center and exercise gym share the same physical space. When a patient leaves the doctor's office he/she immediately enters a functioning gym. In the present paper, we report on our experiences with this integrated medical/exercise approach. METHODS Exercise, and the(More)
