Immunomodulatory activities of alpha lipoic acid with a special focus on its efficacy in preventing miscarriage

Introduction: Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) is an essential mitochondrial co-factor and, as a free
molecule, it can exert multi-level immunomodulatory functions. Both ALA and its reduced form,
dihydrolipoic acid (DHLA), are believed to be able to chelate heavy metals, to regenerate essential
antioxidants and to repair important molecules damaged by oxidation. The largest part of the effects
of ALA/DHLA …

Il 17α-idrossi progesterone-caproato nella pratica clinica ostetrica

INSUFFICIENZA DELLA FASE LUTEALE
L’ insufficienza del corpo luteo e la conseguente incapacita riproduttiva e stata ipotizzata da Jones (Jones, 1976). In seguito sono state riportate stime notevolmente differenti della presen­za di questa sindrome nell’aborto ricorrente. Le prime stime variavano dal 20 al 60% (Doody and Carr, 1991) ma altri Autori hanno riportato percentuali …

Does myo-inositol effect on PCOS follicles involve cytoskeleton regulation?

Inositol metabolism is severely impaired in follicles obtained from cystic ovaries, leading to deregulated insulin transduction and steroid synthesis. On the contrary, inositol administration to women suffering from polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) has been proven to efficiently counteract most of the clinical hallmarks displayed by PCOS patients, including insulin resistance, hyperandrogenism and oligo-amenorrhea. We …

Results from the International Consensus Conference on Myo-inositol and D-chiro-inositol in Obstetrics and Gynecology: the link between metabolic syndrome and PCOS

Metabolic syndrome (MS) is a combination of disorders characterized by alterations in carbohydrate metabolism, obesity, systemic arterial hypertension and dyslipidemia, which increase the risk of developing cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Metabolic disorders affect reproductive function controlled by the hypothalamus and the pituitary. A clinical example of such an interaction is represented by Polycystic …

Reflections on inositol(s) for PCOS therapy (Nestler-Unfer 2015)

In polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) pathogenesis, both the insulin resistance and the related compensatory hyperinsulinemia are involved. Despite their similarities, Myo-inositol (MI) and D-chiro-inositol (DCI) play different roles in PCOS etiology and therapy. Indeed, in tissue such as the liver both molecules are involved in the insulin signaling, i.e. MI promotes glucose uptake …

Results from the International Consensus Conference on myo-inositol and D-chiro-inositol in Obstetrics and Gynecology – assisted reproduction technology

A substantial body of research on mammalian gametogenesis and human reproduction has recently investigated the effect of myo-inositol (MyoIns) on oocyte and sperm cell quality, due    to its possible application to medically assisted reproduction. With a growing number of both clinical and basic research papers, the meaning of several observations now needs to …
