  1. Adipokines and Sexual Hormones Associated with the Components of the Metabolic Syndrome in Pharmacologically Untreated Subjects: Data from t...

    International Journal of Endocrinology 2011 :1 (2011) PMID 22114592

    We evaluated the association of the sex hormone pattern and the serum level of the main adipokines to metabolic syndrome (MS) and its components in 199 pharmacologically untreated subjects. Men and women included in the age-class subgroups were matched for body mass index, waist circumference, blood...
  2. A short term −12° head down tilt does not mimic microgravity in terms of human gonadal function

    Microgravity - Science and Technology 18(3):226 (2006)

  3. Clinorotation-induced weightlessness influences the cytoskeleton of glial cells in culture

    Brain Research 934(2):132 (2002) PMID 11955476

    We undertook a ground based research using a random positioning machine (clinostat) as a simulation method for microgravity. The outcome of the study was represented by cytoskeletal changes occurring in cultured glial cells (C 6 line) after 15 min, 30 min, 1 h, 20 h and 32 h under simulated mi...
  4. Metabolic consequences of incorrect insulin administration techniques in aging subjects with diabetes.

    Acta Diabetologica 48(2):121 (2011) PMID 20091324

    Only few insulin-treated (IT) people with diabetes mellitus (DM) reach the target due to poor compliance and/or to sedentary lifestyle and/or to inadequate treatment regimen. The latter may be also brought about by often overlooked factors including insulin injection into altered ski...
  5. Consensus Document on substitution therapy with DHEA in the elderly.

    Aging Clinical and Experimental Research 18(4):277 (2006) PMID 17063063

  6. Different prevalence of metabolic control and chronic complication rate according to the time of referral to a diabetes care unit in the eld...

    Acta Diabetologica 51(3):447 (2014) PMID 24366424

    We observed a lower burden of diabetes than in the LR group. This rules out the possibility that disease duration might play a major role per se in the burden of the disease in the elderly as opposed to the thoughtful patient care attitude exhibited by the DCU. A better and more efficient organisati...
  7. Positive energy balance is associated with accelerated muscle atrophy and increased erythrocyte glutathione turnover during 5 wk of bed rest...

    American Journal of Clinical Nutrition 88(4):950 (2008) PMID 18842781

    We aimed to assess whether energy intake in excess of requirement activates systemic inflammation and antioxidant defenses and accelerates muscle atrophy induced by inactivity. Nineteen healthy male volunteers were studied before and at the end of 5 wk of bed rest. Subjects were allowed to spontaneo...
  8. Low-intermediate dose testosterone replacement therapy by different pharmaceutical preparations improves frailty score in elderly hypogonada...

    The Aging Male 16(2):33 (2013) PMID 23517433

    An open-label follow-up study of low-to-intermediate dose testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) was conducted in 64 overweight patients (aged 65-75 years) with late onset hypogonadism (LOH) and increased fasting plasma glucose (FPG). Patients were subdivided into four treatment groups: oral testost...
  9. Blood glucose changes in diabetic children and adolescents engaged in most common sports activities.

    Acta bio-medica de L'Ateneo parmense : organo d... 77 Suppl 1:26 (2006) PMID 16921609

    Circulating insulin levels decrease and substrate glycogenolysis-mediated conversion into glucose increases just a few minutes after normal subjects start exercising, but during sustained physical activity muscles massively utilize blood glucose, thus causing glycogenolysis to increase further until...
  10. Feeding behavior in mammals including humans.

    Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences 1163:221 (2009) PMID 19456343

    The complex control of food intake and energy metabolism in mammals relies on the ability of the brain to integrate multiple signals indicating the nutritional state and the energy level of the organism and to produce appropriate responses in terms of food intake, energy expenditure, and metabolic a...
