Twenty adult patients affected by atopic dermatitis (AD) were submitted to the p-aminobenzoic acid (PABA) test in order to evaluate the proteolytic pancreatic function. All but one showed a normal PABA test. These results seem to exclude a proteolytic maldigestion as a pathogenetic factor in AD.

: Altered gastro-duodenal motility seems to be a major factor of alkaline gastritis. Therefore prokinetic drugs have been extensively used for the treatment of this disease. Aim of this study has been to compare the effects of domperidone with those of a more recent drug of the orthopramide class, clebopride. Thirty patients affected by reflux gastritis have been randomly allocated to one of the two treatments. Clinical symptoms, endoscopic and histologic appearance of gastric mucosa, gastric pH...

In this study we compared the effects of a low-fat, high-carbohydrate (LFHC) diet at two levels of polyunsaturated fatty acids on plasma lipids of 20 patients affected by familial endogenous hypertriglyceridemia. During the intervention period the proportion of dietary energy derived from fat was reduced from about 45% to 20% in all the subjects. Ten patients (group I) consumed a LFHC diet with a polyunsaturated to saturated fat (P/S) ratio of 0.4, while the other 10 patients (group II) had a di...

This investigation was aimed at comparing a new method for measuring faecal fat excretion, carried out with a semi-automated instrument by using near infrared analysis (NIRA), with the traditional titrimetric (Van de Kamer) and gravimetric (Sobel) methods. Near infrared analysis faecal fat was assayed on the three day stool collection from 118 patients (68 chronic pancreatitis, 19 organic diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, 19 alcoholic liver disease, 12 functional gastrointestinal disorders...

Summary Fecal chymotrypsin (FCT) has been measured by a new photometric method (Monotest Chymotrypsin; Boehringer, Mannheim) in 78 patients: 44 with chronic pancreatitis and 34 not affected by any pancreatic disease. The results were compared with those from other tests of pancreatic secretory (secretin-cerulein test) and digestive [serum and urinary p-aminobenzoic acid (PABA) and pancreolauryl] capacity. When FCT values were severely reduced (below 6.7 U/g, from 90 to 100% of the patients also ...

Incomplete conversion of very-low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) precursors to low-density lipoproteins (LDL) was consistently observed in hypertriglyceridemic patients. In this study we evaluated the composition of total VLDL and its subfractions in 15 patients with familial type IV hyperlipoproteinemia during gemfibrozil therapy and faced the question of what is the impact of VLDL composition changes on LDL cholesterol levels. The results appear to demonstrate that the LDL increase induced by gemf...
