Pharmacological treatment of alcohol use disorder represents an essential core of the therapeutic project in a multidisciplinary approach. While non-drug treatment is evolving, from a medical perspective few pharmacotherapies are available; in particular acamprosate, naltrexone and more recently nalmefene among anticraving drugs, disulfiram as an antidipsotropic medication. New studies are focusing on off-label drugs. Moreover, scientific evidence has to support any therapeutic indication which should be tailored on patient needs and comorbidity by considering the individual bio-psycho-social profile...

INTRODUZIONE: una vasta area compresa tra le province di Napoli e Caserta nella regione Campania ha negli ultimi anni attirato l'attenzione dei mass media a causa degli interramenti illeciti di rifiuti di varia origine nei campi o del loro abbandono lungo le strade. A tali pratiche illecite si aggiunge il fenomeno dei roghi incontrollati di questo materiale, motivo per il quale la zona è stata soprannominata "Terra dei fuochi". OBIETTIVI: ricerca di elementi in tracce presenti nei prodotti alimentari di origine vegetale prodotti nella Terra dei fuochi...

La continua espansione delle attività di perforazione ai fini dell'estrazione petrolifera in prossimità di aree abitate ha fatto sì che negli ultimi anni l'attenzione si focalizzasse sull'impatto di questo processo fortemente industrializzato sulla salute pubblica. Le comunità che vivono nei dintorni di impianti di questo tipo devono, infatti, fronteggiare diversi problemi, quali l'inquinamento atmosferico e acustico, la contaminazione del suolo e delle acque sotterranee, il traffico dei camion da e verso il sito, incidenti e malfunzionamenti all'interno dell'impianto...

BACKGROUND: Several studies suggest that many asthmatic subjects have uncontrolled asthma. The control of asthma is now considered the major goal of therapy. OBJECTIVES: to ascertain the level of asthma control, by Asthma Control Test (ACT), in "real-life" clinical practice and the potential risk factors for uncontrolled disease in patients treated with inhaled corticosteroids (ICS) and long-acting beta-adrenergic agonists (LABA). METHODS: SERENA is a multi-centre, cross-sectional, 6-month observational, non-interventional study carried out in 16 Pulmonary Units in Italy...

BACKGROUND: Although repolarization abnormalities on ECG are frequent in post-menopausal hypertensive women, their prognostic value in these women is uncertain. METHODS: We analyzed 908 hypertensive post-menopausal women consecutively included in the PIUMA (Progetto Ipertensione Umbria Monitoraggio Ambulatoriale) study. The median duration of follow-up was 8.6 years (range: 1-21). All women were untreated at entry. Drug treatment during follow-up was adjusted to single individuals...

OBJECTIVE: High white blood cell and neutrophil counts identify patients at increased cardiovascular risk in various clinical settings. However, the prognostic value of white blood cell and neutrophil counts in hypertensive postmenopausal women is unknown. We tested the independent prognostic value of total white blood cell and neutrophil counts for cardiovascular events in hypertensive postmenopausal women. METHODS: We examined 298 initially untreated postmenopausal women with essential hypertension who were part of Progetto Ipertensione Umbria Monitoraggio Ambulatoriale (PIUMA)...

BACKGROUND: Guidelines recommend that blood pressure (BP) should be lowered in hypertensive patients to prevent cardiovascular accidents. Management of antihypertensive treatment by general practitioners is usually based on office measurements, which may not allow an assessment of BP control over 24 h, which requires ambulatory BP monitoring (ABPM) to be implemented. This is rarely done in general practice, and limited information is available on the consistency between the evaluations of the response to treatment provided by office measurement and by ABPM in this setting...

OBJECTIVES: Although the prognostic value of the day-night blood pressure (BP) changes is well established, the most appropriate method for definition of daytime and nighttime BP is still undefined. In a recent guidelines document of the European Society of Hypertension, there is no clear position in favor of one definition over other. METHODS: In the setting of the Progetto Ipertensione Umbria Monitoraggio Ambulariale study, we analyzed the prognostic impact of the day-night BP changes by using three widely used different definitions of day and night (large fixed-clock intervals, narrow fixed-clock intervals, diary) in 2934 initially untreated participants with essential hypertension...

BACKGROUND: Chronic low-grade inflammation may contribute to vascular injury and atherogenesis, and has been described in association to high blood pressure (BP). However, as yet the prognostic significance of white blood cell (WBC) count in the setting of uncomplicated hypertension has not been investigated. METHODS: In the Progetto Ipertensione Umbria Monitoraggio Ambulatoriale (PIUMA) study, 1617 white patients with essential hypertension (aged 49 +/- 12 years, 55% men) without prevalent cardiovascular or renal disease underwent off-treatment baseline clinical evaluation and were then followed up for 11 years (average 4...

OBJECTIVES: Blood pressure (BP) measured in the office is usually higher than the average ambulatory BP, a difference generally taken as an estimate of the white-coat effect. This study was designed to assess whether such a difference is associated with impairment of the conduit arterial system. METHODS: We calculated the difference between office and average daytime peak systolic blood pressure (DeltaSBP) in 2778 hypertensive participants (1240 women) of the Progetto Ipertensione Umbria Monitoraggio Ambulatoriale cohort...

Systolic blood pressure (SBP) is an important determinant of the development and regression of left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) in hypertensive humans. However, comparative assessments with other BP components are scarce and generally limited in size. As part of the Progetto Ipertensione Umbria Monitoraggio Ambulatoriale (PIUMA), 743 hypertensive subjects underwent echocardiography and 24-h ambulatory BP monitoring before and after an average of 3.9 years of treatment. The changes in left ventricular mass showed a significant direct association with the changes in 24-h SBP (r=0...

OBJECTIVES: We sought to assess the prognostic value of alterations in left ventricular (LV) diastolic function in patients with essential hypertension. BACKGROUND: Alterations in LV diastolic function are frequent in patients with hypertension, even in the absence of LV hypertrophy, but their prognostic significance has never been investigated. METHODS: In the setting of the Progetto Ipertensione Umbria Monitoraggio Ambulatoriale (PIUMA) study, we followed, for up to 11 years (mean: 4...

BACKGROUND: Determination of serum creatinine concentration is recommended in all patients with hypertension as a marker of target organ damage. However, the possibility that creatinine values within the reference range might contribute to stratification of cardiovascular risk in essential hypertension has never been tested. PATIENTS AND METHODS: In the setting of the Progetto Ipertensione Umbria Monitoraggio Ambulatoriale Study, for up to 11 years (mean, 4 years) we followed up 1829 white patients with hypertension (mean +/- SD age, 51 +/- 12 years; 53% men; office blood pressure, 157/98 mm Hg) free of cardiovascular events and with normal pretreatment creatinine levels (men, <136 micromol/L [<1...

BACKGROUND: The long-term effects of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors and angiotensin II receptor blockers on ambulatory blood pressure and cardiac performance have never been examined comparatively. OBJECTIVE: We compared losartan and enalapril in their long-term effects on office and ambulatory blood pressure, cardiac structure and function, and routine biochemical tests. DESIGN: In the setting of the Progetto Ipertensione Umbria Monitoraggio Ambulatoriale (PIUMA) study, 22 hypertensive subjects were studied with ambulatory blood pressure monitoring and echocardiography before and after an average of 3...

We conducted a retrospective analysis of all subjects with essential hypertension and Type 2 diabetes mellitus enrolled in the PIUMA (Progetto Ipertensione Umbria Monitoraggio Ambulatoriale) registry, in order to evaluate whether the use of calcium antagonists is associated with an increase in cardiovascular risk in these subjects. One hundred and sixty-four consecutive subjects with no previous cardiovascular morbid events and coexistence of essential hypertension and Type 2 diabetes mellitus were studied before therapy and followed for up to 12 years (mean 5)...

BACKGROUND: In a previous analysis of the Progetto Ipertensione Umbria Monitoraggio Ambulatoriale we found a higher rate of cardiovascular morbid events among hypertensive nondippers than we did among dippers (5.86 versus 1.18 events per 100 person-years, P = 0.0002) for women, whereas the difference between the two groups was smaller and not statistically significant for men (4.15 versus 2.48 events per 100 person-years). These differences held in a multivariate analysis after adjustment for several confounders including average 24 h ambulatory blood pressure...

Electrocardiography (ECG) has a lower sensitivity for the diagnosis of left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy in smokers than in non-smokers, but the explanation for this finding is not known. In the setting of the Progetto Ipertensione Umbria Monitoraggio Ambulatoriale (PIUMA) study, all subjects smoking > or = 15 cigarettes/day (n = 121, 89 men, age 48 +/- 11 years) were selected from 1443 untreated hypertensive subjects undergoing ECG and M-mode echocardiography, and matched with 484 hypertensive non-smokers by gender (same sex), age (+/- 5 years), and systolic and diastolic blood pressure (both +/- 5 mmHg) in a case-to-control design with a 1:4 matching ratio...

The difference between clinic and ambulatory blood pressure (BP) has been used to quantify the pressure reactivity to the doctor's visit (white coat effect). We investigated the prognostic significance of the clinic-ambulatory BP difference in the setting of the Progetto Ipertensione Umbria Monitoraggio Ambulatoriale (PIUMA) study. A total of 1522 subjects contributed 6371 person-years of observation. All subjects had an initial off-therapy diagnostic workup including 24-hour noninvasive ambulatory BP monitoring...
