BACKGROUND There is at present a tragic lack of organs available for transplantation. This has led to the harvesting of hearts from older donors. Unfortunately, hearts from such donors are much more sensitive to ischemic insult. Models such as "Senescence Accelerated Mouse" Prone 8 (SAM-P8) can help understand this sensitivity. New cardioprotective(More)
To evaluate the mechanisms and the impact of the angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor perindopril (P) in a model of doxorubicin (D)-induced cardiotoxicity, male Wistar rats received D (1 mg/kg/d, IP for 10 days), P (2 mg/kg/d by gavage from day 1 to day 18), D (for 10 days) + P (for 18 days) or saline. D decreased systolic blood pressure and body and(More)
Dysregulation in patterns of alternative RNA splicing in cancer cells is emerging as a significant factor in cancer pathophysiology. In this study, we investigated the little known alternative splice isoform survivin-3B (S-3B) that is overexpressed in a tumor-specific manner. Ectopic overexpression of S-3B drove tumorigenesis by facilitating immune escape(More)
BACKGROUND Conflicting evidence is reported about the beneficial effects of post-conditioning (Post-C) in pathologic conditions. A pathologic mouse model of hypercholesterolemia was used. The study examined the effect of Post-Con cardiac recovery after the ischemia-reperfusion sequence and the effect of Post-Con on low-density lipoprotein receptor-deficient(More)
OBJECTIVE Asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA) is an endogenous modulator of endothelial function and oxidative stress, and increased levels of this molecule have been reported in some metabolic disorders and cardiovascular diseases. The aim of this work was to analyze the time course of dimethylarginine compounds and oxidative stress levels and the(More)
OBJECTIVE Hypercholesterolemia (HC) has been associated with impairment of vascular and myocardial functions. As HC could generate an alteration in the oxidative status, we studied the effects of a 1-month cholesterol diet on cardiovascular oxidative stress. METHODS AND RESULTS New Zealand rabbits received cholesterol (1%) or normal chow for 1 month. At(More)
PURPOSE The aim of our work is to evaluate the added diagnostic value of respiratory gated (4-D) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) in lung lesion detection/characterization in a large patient population of a multicentre retrospective study. METHODS The data of 155 patients (89 men, 66 women, mean age 63.9 ± 11.1 years) from 5(More)
In this study we first propose and compare two frequency-domain motion estimation methods using phase correlation principle. Then, we focus on the particular case of subpixel translational movements, we evaluate the accuracy of these two registration methods and we give some practical hints for their implementation. Finally, we compare the performances of(More)
AIMS There is conflicting evidence regarding the relationship between hypercholesterolemia and oxidative stress in vessels. To test the potential relationship, a mouse model of hypercholesterolemia was used. METHODS Low density lipoprotein receptor-deficient (LDLR(-/-)) and control (C57Bl/6) mice were fed a normal or (1.25%) high-cholesterol (HC) diet for(More)
The aim of this study was to appreciate consequences of rosuvastatin administration on hemodynamic function, vascular oxidative stress and ischemia/reperfusion disorders in normotensive and hypertensive rats. At 10 weeks of age, spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR, n=20) and normotensive Wistar Kyoto male rats (WKY, n=20) were divided into four groups and(More)
