Background and aims: Hospitalized elderly patients generally have a high level of disability and comorbidity. In many cases, at hospital discharge, the achieved health status balance is poor, and consequently the risk of further disability and hospital readmission is great. Identifying factors leading to hospital readmission could be helpful in reducing such events. The aim of the study was to evaluate the incidence and predictive factors of hospital readmission. Methods: We conducted an observa...

The aim of the study was to determine incidence, features and outcomes of the adverse drug reactions (ADR) among emergency department (ED) visits of S. Giovanni Battista Hospital in Turin. We evaluated 16.055 patients among ED visits in a period of five months; the mean age was 59,6±20,2 year (range 17-93 y; 8.054 women and 8.001 men); 426 (2,6%) had ADRs, and 91 (21,4%) were admitted to the hospital. In multivariate analysis only the number of medicines was positive correlated with ADR. The dru...

The aim of this study was to discuss about prevalence and clinical rilevance of comorbidity in the elderly patients. Our sample included 2373 (mean age 77.8 +/- 8.5; 1302 men and 1071 woman) consecutively admitted to the University Department of Geriatric Medicine of Torino. We examined some demographic variables, cognitive and functional status, main pathologies. Severity of illness was assessed using the C.I.R.S. The coexistence of two or more diseases was 83%: cardiovascular and chronic pulmo...

Aim of the study was to determine the incidence and risk factors for falls in hospitalized elderly patients. In a prospective observational study we investigated the characteristics of 620 elderly patients. We examined demographic variables, cognitive and functional status, main pathologies and drugs. Balance and gait were evaluated by Tinetti's scale. Seventy patients (11.3%) fell during hospitalization. The incidence rate of first falls was 5.2 per 1000 patient-days. Five independent variables...

Aims/hypothesis Drop-out of capillary pericytes occurs early and selectively in diabetic retinopathy. High glucose concentrations decrease replication and increase apoptosis of cultured pericytes. Since glucose activates protein kinase C, we investigated the effects of modulating this intracellular mediator on replication, cell cycle and apoptosis of cultured bovine retinal pericytes.

Aims/hypothesis Thickening of the basement membrane and selective loss of pericytes occur early in diabetic retinopathy. As we showed previously that pericyte adhesion is impaired on extracellular matrix produced by endothelial cells in high hexose concentrations, we aimed to verify if altered adhesion could influence pericyte viability and replication.

Aims/hypothesis: Thickening of the basement membrane and selective loss of pericytes are early events in diabetic retinopathy. We aimed at checking whether pericyte interaction with extracellular matrix produced by endothelial cells is influenced by the hexose concentrations in which endothelial cells are cultured.

Contexte: L'activation du systeme renine angiotensine (SRA) peut induire une fibrose cardiovasculaire et renale au cours de l'hypertension et du diabete. Cet effet fibrosant est principalement medie par le Transforming Growth Factor-β1 (TGF-β1), une cytokine multifonctionnelle liberee par l'endothelium, les fibres musculaires lisses et les cellules mesangiales renales, et capable d'augmenter les depots de matrice extracellulaire. Les pericytes des capillaires retiniens ont des fonctions similair...
