Abstract The late neurologist and author, Oliver Sacks, published an insightful 1986 review of Marjorie Wallace's book, The Silent Twins, in the New York Times. Taking exception to his assertion about Sir Francis Galton, I wrote a letter to the Times' editor. The letter was unpublished, but it brought a wonderful response from Sacks himself that is reproduced and examined. Next, brief reviews of twin research concerning the vanishing twin syndrome (VTS), discordant sex in a monozygotic (MZ) twin pair, and multiple pregnancy outcomes from assisted reproductive technology (ART) are presented. This section is followe...

CONCLUSIONS: On the one hand, we could confirm the safety profile of the molecule also at this high dosage, free from any side effects; on the other hand, our experience highlighted the faster glucose-lowering effect due to a higher dose of Myo-Ins. This outcome may open a new scenario in the treatment of GDM. PMID: 28724184 [PubMed - in process]
