How to prevent recurrences after a first venous thromboembolic (VTE) event in elderly patients is still an open issue, especially because of the high bleeding risk of anticoagulation in these patients. The placebo-controlled "Jason" study aims at assessing the efficacy and safety for secondary VTE prevention in elderly patients of oral Sulodexide (Vessel®) administration, a mixture of glycosaminoglycans (Alfasigma, Bologna, Italy) which proved effective against recurrences in a general populatio...

INTRODUCTION Micro- and macrovascular complications of diabetes are leading morbidities in the world population. They are responsible not only for increased mortality but also severe disabilities, which jeopardize quality of life (e.g., blindness, walking limitations, and renal failure requiring dialysis). The new antidiabetic agents (e.g., glucagon-like peptide 1 receptor agonists and sodium-glucose cotransporter inhibitors) are increasingly recognized as breakthrough agents in the treatment of...

There is a lack of data on the general health-related quality of life (HRQoL) of cancer patients treated in Italian hospitals. The EQ-5D can be used to generate a visual analogue scale score and a utility value that enable comparison of HRQoL for patients across cancer types and stages and can provide values for use in economic evaluations of anti-cancer treatments. The study collected data for 802 cancer patients receiving treatment in one of six hospitals between April 16, 2018, and September ...

Abstract Background Bilateral absence of N20 peak in median nerve Somatosensory Evoked Potentials (SSEPs) is considered the most valid predictor of poor outcome in comatose survivors after cardiopulmonary resuscitation. We investigated the consistency in interpreting SSEP recordings in a multicentre study. Methods 44 SSEP recordings randomly extracted from 600 recordings of 392 patients included in the “Prognostication of Neurological outcome after Cardiac Arrest (ProNeCa) study” were blindly re...

Introduction Chronic venous disease (CVD) is a common condition associated with valvular dysfunction, venous hypertension and endothelial inflammation. Sulodexide facilitates the healing of venous ulcers and is frequently used in patients with CVD without ulcer. This review assessed the efficacy and safety of sulodexide for treatment of signs and symptoms of lower extremity CVD.

Cytomegalovirus (CMV) remains a cause of disease in individuals with weakened immune systems such as patients undergoing organ transplantation. The mainstay of treatment for CMV is ganciclovir: a CMV-specific drug that looks like a building block of the viral DNA and which requires activation by a protein contained within CMV. Understanding how patients respond to treatment can lead to a better understanding of the basic biology of CMV in the human and also help to optimize treatment regimens. I...
