Metabolic syndrome (MetS) is defined as a cluster of elements represented by increased levels of fasting plasma glucose, raised tryglicerides, high blood pressure and modified values of HDL cholesterol associated with the presence of abnormal abdominal waist[1,2]. Due to this elements it represents a predicting factor regarding the development of type II diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Although insulin resistance[3] and central obesity[4] represent the main causative factors, there are still many unknown variables of its components that require further research. [...]

Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) is a relatively new therapeutic and diagnostic technique that uses non-invasive neuromodulation and has an excellent safety profile[1]. According to recent EAN guidelines on central neurostimulation in chronic pain conditions there is only week evidence for primary motor cortex rTMS in neuropathic pain[2], while other guidelines on rTMS state a defi nite analgesic effect of high frequency rTMS of the primary motor cortex contra-lateral to pain site in neuropathic pain[3]

Histamine and serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine) are two amino acid derivatives with important biological functions [1]. Histamine, an endogenous monoamine, is synthesized from the histidine and is stored in most tissues and degraded in liver by histaminase. The most important roles of histamine are: mediation of type I allergic reactions, stimulation of stomach secretion of hydrochloric acid and pepsin (as autacoid), and functioning as a neurotransmitter (especially in the central nervous system)[2]. Regarding the vascular effects of histamine in non-ocular territories, there have not been many published literature reviews, for example, there are data reviewed for pulmonary artery[3], brain territory[4], but these data are not recent.
