AIMS To describe the frequency of restless legs syndrome (RLS) in a French population of randomly selected women during their third trimester of pregnancy and its evolution up to 3 months after delivery and to identify potential factors associated with the improvement of RLS after delivery. METHODS A cross-sectional questionnaire survey. RESULTS 186… (More)
Methane conversion to syngas is very attractive for hydrogen or clean fuel production and provides an alternative to oil products. An efficient architecture for the membrane reactor is constituted of a porous support, a thin dense membrane and a catalyst layer. This work is focused on the elaboration process of such asymmetric membranes by co-sintering of… (More)

The questionnaire was distributed by the medical staff in different outpatient waiting rooms (obstetrics and gynecology department of the university hospital, obstetrics and… (More)
The discovery of biomarkers, considered as surrogate markers of the underlying pathological changes, led an international work group (IWG) to propose a new conceptual framework for AD in 2007 Dubois et al. (2007). According to the IWG, AD is now defined as a dual clinico-biological entity that can be recognized in vivo, prior to the onset of the dementia… (More)

BACKGROUND Erdheim-Chester disease (ECD) is a rare form of non-Langerhans cell histiocytosis. This inflammatory myeloid neoplasm is frequently complicated by neurological symptoms, but stroke is an exceptional manifestation of this disease. METHODS We report the case of a 59-year-old woman who presented a vertebrobasilar stroke secondary to infiltration… (More)
Recent findings indicate that microglia in Alzheimer's disease (AD) is senescent whereas peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) could infiltrate the brain to phagocyte amyloid deposits. However, the molecular mechanisms involved in the amyloid peptide clearance remain unknown. Autophagy is a physiological degradation of proteins and organelles and can… (More)
