From 1988 to 1990, we observed five cases of aseptic dural sinus and cerebral venous thrombosis, all in non-smoking women (age 18 to 47 years) receiving low dose oral contraceptives. Treatment consisted of full anticoagulation over 2 to 6 months, over which time the neurologic symptoms disappeared almost completely. Extensive tests of the blood clotting(More)
Mice infected i.v. with high doses of lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus (LCMV; 105–106 plaqueforming units) 8–10 days prior to challenge with the methylcholanthrene-induced fibrosarcoma tumor cell line MC57G or the melanoma cell line B16 tumor cells showed an enhanced tumor susceptibility with respect to both growth kinetics of the tumor and the minimal(More)
By stimulation of the median nerve at the wrist we recorded the somatosensory evoked potentials (SEP) at several points between the midpoint of the clavicle and the scalp, overlying the area of sensorimotor cortex. The SEP of each side were graded (bilaterally normal SEP's: grade-1/1, pathological SEP's grade-2/1 to grade-4/4). The aim of these recordings(More)
The frequency of minor closed head injuries is high. These injuries may be complicated by the development of life-threatening intracranial hematomas. A well-defined selection criteria for admission must be proposed to guarantee an efficacious observation. In our series of 489 hospitalized patients with a GCS of 15 when seen in the emergency room: 4 patients(More)
The effects of various doses of Thymopentin, the synthetic 5 aminoacid fragment of thymopoietin injected on d -4 and d -1 on murine host resistance to Listeria monocytogenes were tested. The experiments did not reveal any regular dose-effect relationship; i.e. no or only marginal (more often small negative rather than positive) effects were observed on(More)
