  1. Consensus Document on substitution therapy with DHEA in the elderly.

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

  2. 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 skin areas, often b...
  3. 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...
  4. Thyrotropin-releasing hormone enhances event-related brain potentials and growth hormone release in man

    Neuroscience Letters 93(2):346 (1988)

    Changes in contingent negative variation (CNV), a brain-evoked potential related in arousal, as well as in serum triiodothyronine (T3), thyroxine (T4), thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), prolactin (PRL), cortisol and growth hormone (GH) levels were recorded in 12 male volunteers receiving eithe...
  5. 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)

  6. 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...
  7. 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...
  8. 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...
  9. Changes in stress hormones and metabolism during a 105-day simulated Mars mission.

    Aviation, Space, and Environmental Medicine 85(8):793 (2014) PMID 25199119

    The Mars-105 project was aimed at simulating crew's activities, workload, and communication during a mission to Mars, evaluating the homeostatic adaptations to prolonged confinement and cohabitation. Fasting plasma glucose (FPG) and insulin, C-peptide, leptin, cortisol, and NGF and BDNF plasma level...
  10. Screening of Cushing's syndrome in outpatients with type 2 diabetes: results of a prospective multicentric study in Italy.

    Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism 97(10):3467 (2012) PMID 22767639

    Our aim was to evaluate the prevalence of unsuspected Cushing's syndrome among outpatients with type 2 diabetes. This was a cross-sectional prospective study in 24 diabetes clinics across Italy. Between June 2006 and April 2008, 813 patients with known type 2 diabetes without clinically overt hyperc...
