  1. 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...
  2. 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

    Abstract 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: ora...
  3. 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...

  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. 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...
  7. Low gravity and integrins in cultured glial cells

    Acta Astronautica 63(7):899 (2008)

    We studied the effect of random rotation on the expression of integrins in cultured astrocytes with or without the addition of divalent ions. Some cultures were immediately fixed, others were let to rest and then fixed. Cells were submitted to immunohistochemistry using antibodies to...
  8. Mental rotation task in a pilot during and after pregnancy.

    Aviation, Space, and Environmental Medicine 84(10):1092 (2013) PMID 24261064

    We observed a significant difference in the subject's response time compared with pilots (she was slower) and nonpilots (she was faster). One year after delivery, her performance was still better than the nonpilot group and was almost the same as the pilot group. Our data are consistent with an effe...
  9. 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...
  10. Consensus Document on substitution therapy with DHEA in the elderly.
