Purpose Hypothyroidism is a common side effect of Sunitinib (SUN) treatment in metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC) patients. We aimed to evaluate thyroid profile during the alternative 2/1 SUN treatment schedule and to assess the predictive value of hypothyroidism in terms of survival.

Head and neck paragangliomas are the most common clinical features of familial paraganglioma syndrome type 1 caused by succinate dehydrogenase complex subunit D (SDHD) mutation. The clinical management of this syndrome is still unclear. In this study we propose a diagnostic algorithm for SDHD mutation carriers based on our family case series and literature review. After genetic diagnosis, first evaluation should include biochemical examination and whole-body imaging. In case of lesion detection,...

Endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) are exogenous substances that are able to interfere with hormone action, likely contributing to the development of several endocrine and metabolic diseases. Among them, Bisphenol A (BPA) and phthalates contaminate food and water and have been largely studied as obesogenic agents. They might contribute to weight gain, insulin resistance and pancreatic β-cell dysfunction in pregnancy, potentially playing a role in the development of pregnancy complications, su...

Abstract Background Sarcopenic Obesity (SO) is characterised by the co-occurrence of high adiposity (HA) and low muscle mass (LM) and it has been associated with an increased risk for cardio-metabolic diseases. This cross-sectional study investigated the association between markers of insulin sensitivity and SO defined by three novel body composition models: 1) body composition phenotypes; 2) truncal fat mass/appendicular skeletal mass ratio (TrFM/ASM) load-capacity and 3) fat mass/fat free mass...

Purpose Androgenetic Alopecia (AGA) is a common non-cicatricial alopecia. AGA treatment with finasteride was reported to have sexological side effects and its induced hormonal alterations could damage spermatogenesis. Thus, in patients affected by AGA undergoing oral therapy with Finasteride 1 mg/die, we aimed to evaluate the presence of modification in sperm parameters, hormone profile and sexual function.

Great attention has been paid in recent years to the harmful effects of various chemicals that interfere with our natural hormone balance, collectively known as endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) or endocrine disruptors. The effects on the reproductive system of bisphenol A (BPA) and phthalates have received particular attention: while they have a short half-life, they are so widespread that human exposure can be considered as continuous. Evidence is often limited to the animal model, disrega...
