Paraphenylenediamine (PPD) poisoning has been known for many years, but few studies have been devoted to the subject. We report 4 cases, seen in the nephrology department, concerning women aged from 18 to 35 years who had tried to commit suicide by drinking varying amounts of that hair dye. The initial symptom was acute asphyxia which required emergency(More)
Pigs exposed to GP(5) protein of PRRSV by means of DNA immunization develop specific neutralizing and protecting antibodies. Herein, we report on the consequences of codon bias, and on the favorable outcome of the systematic replacement of native codons of PRRSV ORF5 gene with codons chosen to reflect more closely the codon preference of highly expressed(More)
Porcine respiratory coronavirus (PRCV) is present in many countries, including Canada, but controversy still exists concerning its pathogenicity. Eight-week-old piglets were inoculated intratracheally with a Quebec PRCV isolate (1Q90). Two contact piglets were kept with the inoculated animals. Three animals served as control. Polypnea and dyspnea were the(More)
Porcine respiratory coronavirus (PRCV) was identified for the first time in Quebec, using a blocking enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). Unlike the virus neutralization test (VNT), this ELISA was able to distinguish transmissible gastroenteritis virus (TGEV) from PRCV. Among the 15 seropositive fattening herds from group A, sera containing PRCV(More)
OBJECTIVES There are few studies on crystalluria in the developing countries. The aim of the present study was carrying out a first study in Morocco on the frequency and the chemical nature of the crystalluria according to the sex and the age of human individuals living in the Tadla Azilal moroccan area. METHOD 200 samples resulting from the morning(More)
The authors report their experience of subclavian vein catheterisation and compare their results with those of previously reported series. One hundred and sixty-four subclavian catheters were inserted in 111 patients, 66 with acute renal failure and 49 with chronic renal failure. The total number of hemodialysis sessions was 984. The catheters were left in(More)
Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease is the third cause of end-stage chronic renal failure (CRF) requiring dialysis and transplantation. Over a 5-year period we collected 21 cases of that disease. The patients' mean age at the time of diagnosis was 48 years and the sex ratio 1.1. Pain was the most frequent signal symptom, being present in 43 p. 100(More)
During the February 1983-February 1988 period, 172 patients (113 men and 59 women, mean age 36 years) were admitted to the Ibn-Rochd hospital for acute renal failure (ARF). Oliguria or anuria were present on admission in 131 patients (76.2 per cent). ARF occurred in a medical context in more than two thirds of the cases (73.8 per cent) post-operatively or(More)
During eleven years (1983-1994), 684 arteriovenous fistulas (AVF) were realized for 422 patients. The mean follow-up was 39 months. The most frequent AVF was Cimino and Brescia and the most frequent seat was radial. The failure rate in the immediate post-operative period was 10% and 8% after 48 hours. The permeability of the AVF was 59%, 51% and 42% at 1, 2(More)
