    BACKGROUND: On December 12th 2019, a new coronavirus (SARS-Cov2) emerged in Wuhan, China, sparking a pandemic of acute respiratory syndrome in humans (COVID-19). On the 24th of April 2020, the number of COVID-19 deaths in the world, according to the COVID-Case Tracker by Johns Hopkins University, was 195,313, and the number of COVID-19 confirmed cases was 2,783,512. The COVID-19 pandemic represents a massive impact on human health, causing sudden lifestyle changes, through social ...

    OBJECTIVE: The aims of this study were to compare body mass index (BMI) and triponderal mass index (TMI) as predictors of fat mass percentage (FM%) and to develop TMI cutoffs for screening high adiposity. Therefore, TMI- and BMI-based references against FM% criterion for indicating adiposity in Italian children and adolescents were compared.

    METHODS: This was a cross-sectional study conducted at the University of Rome Tor Vergata, Human Nutrition Unit, from 2008 to 2015. The sample ...

    Psoriasis is a lifelong, chronic and immune-mediated skin disease affecting approximately 1-3% of the Caucasian population. Pathogenesis of psoriasis is associated with an increased expression of tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha). TNF-alpha is a pro-inflammatory cytokine and important mediator of cachexia. Anti-TNF-alpha therapies are effective in the treatment of psoriasis. The primary end-point was to investigate retrospectively the effect of anti-TNF-therapies on body weight and ...

    The aim of the present study was to verify whether the oral administration of cyanidin 3-O-beta-D-glucoside (C3G) might counteract damage induced by chronic exposure (28 d) to ochratoxin A (OTA) in rats and if its effect may be mediated by haeme oxygenase-1 (HO-1). Forty male Sprague-Dawley rats, individually caged, were divided into four groups of ten animals. A control group received a commercial diet, group C3G received the control diet supplemented with C3G (1 g/kg feed), group OTA ...

    BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Obesity, an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease (CVD), has been associated with the early development of coronary atherosclerosis in adolescents and young men. A subset of metabolically obese but normal weight individuals was identified, with potentially increased risks for development of the metabolic syndrome despite their normal body mass index. We determined the relationship among body fat distribution and selected CVD risk factors to distinguish ...

    Tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α is a pro-inflammatory cytokine associated with psoriasis pathogenesis. Anti-TNF-α therapies are effective in psoriasis. A significant weight gain has been reported in patients treated with anti-TNF-α agents. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the body composition changes in psoriatic patients receiving anti-TNF-α therapies according with disease phenotype. Forty patients affected with psoriasis were followed up for 24 weeks and divided into two ...

    BACKGROUND: In obese subjects, the adipose mass represents an important source of proinflammatory cytokines. We have identified a new syndrome-the normal-weight obese (NWO) syndrome-in women with normal weight and body mass index but whose fat mass is >30% of their total body weight and whose risk of developing obesity-related diseases is likely increased.

    OBJECTIVE: The aim of the present study was to verify the hypothesis that NWO women are characterized by early inflammation, related ...

    Several studies have found that adherence to the Mediterranean Diet, including consumption of red wine, is associated with beneficial effects on oxidative and inflammatory conditions. We evaluate the outcome of consumption of a McDonald's Meal (McD) and a Mediterranean Meal (MM), with and without the additive effect of red wine, in order to ascertain whether the addition of the latter has a positive impact on oxidized (ox-) LDL and on expression of oxidative and inflammatory genes. A ...

    BACKGROUND AND AIM: There is increasing evidence suggesting that WHO body mass index (BMI) cut-off values are outdated and should not be applied to different population. To overcome misclassifications, direct measurements of percentage body fat (PBF) would be a better tool for preobesity and obesity diagnosis. The aim of this study was to analyze the body composition in a adult population in Centre-South of Italy, by age and gender, and to verify the accordance between BMI and PBF ...

    Metabolic syndrome (MS) is a cluster of metabolic alteration associated with a higher risk of cardiovascular disease and overall mortality than the single alterations alone. The Italian Mediterranean Diet (IMD) can exert a positive effect on cardiovascular risk and related morbidity and mortality. The aim was to evaluate the benefits of dietary intervention based on a typical IMD on body composition, cardiometabolic changes and reduction in cardiovascular disease in patients with MS. ...
