Background Soluble Receptor for Advanced Glycation End Products (sRAGE) may be considered a marker inversely related to inflammation and its participation has been established in patients with advanced atherosclerotic vascular diseases. However, it is still unknown whether sRAGE reduction could be early metabolic change in the first stage of hypertension and initial hypertension-associated cardiac damage. We sought to determine the sRAGE values in otherwise healthy, untreated and recently diagno...
For many years, the only pharmacological option for patients with critical limb ischemia (CLI) unsuitable for revascularization has been prostanoids; however, some recent guidelines have become ver...
Abstract Objective To predict the 3-months mortality in permanently bedridden medical non-oncologic inpatients. Patients and Methods 2788 consecutive patients admitted in 5 Italian Internal Medicine units from January 2016 through January 2017 were prospectively screened; 644 oncologic patients were excluded; 2144 non-oncologic patients (1021 female) were followed-up for mortality for 6 months.

Direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) include dabigatran, which inhibits thrombin, and apixaban, edoxaban, and rivaroxaban, which inhibit factor Xa. They have been extensively studied in large trials involving patients affected by the most common cardiovascular diseases. As the presence of diabetes leads to peculiar changes in primary and secondary hemostasis, in this review we highlight the current evidence regarding DOAC use in diabetic patients included in the majority of recently conducted stud...

Abstract Objectives This study describes the clinical features and outcomes of patients with bloodstream infection (BSI) due to Enterococcus spp. and identified factors predictive of mortality. Methods This analysis is part of a prospective multicentre observational study of consecutive hospitalised patients with BSI conducted from March 2012 to December 2012 in 31 internal medicine wards in Italy. Patients with enterococcal BSI were selected from the entire cohort. Patient characteristics, ther...
