Introduction: Patients with human immunodeficiency virus-1 (HIV-1) infection develop a lipodystrophic syndrome characterised by accumulation of central fat both in visceral and in subcutaneous compartment. In recent studies approximately 20% of male patients with HIV-related lipodystrophy presented an inadequate peak of GH secretion in response to GHRH-arginine testing, which is strongly inversely related to visceral adipose tissue-(VAT).Aim of the study...

Background: Despite male idiopathic infertility is characterized by semen analysis alteration with gonadotropins within reference ranges, it is still considered a functional hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (FHH). This simple definition is fundamental to guide the empirical therapeutic approach of these men. However, the number of studies describing total testosterone serum levels (TT) in male idiopathic infertility is still limited.Objective: To evaluate T...

Introduction: Despite normal thyroid-stimulating hormone serum levels, up to 60% of hypothyroid patients are dissatisfied with the treatment. Animal studies suggest that the persistence of symptoms may derive from peripheral hypothyroidism. Combination treatment with levothyroxine and liothyronine is a theoretically plausible solution but its efficacy is still questionable.Aim: To evaluate the effects of personalized twice-daily combination therapy on pe...
