The renowned soft-bodied faunas of the Cambrian period, which include the Burgess Shale, disappear from the fossil record in the late Middle Cambrian, after which the Palaeozoic fauna dominates. The disappearance of faunas of Burgess Shale type curtails the stratigraphic record of a number of iconic Cambrian taxa. One possible explanation for this loss is a(More)
Severity of oxygen desaturation is predictive of early atherosclerosis in obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA). Leukotriene (LT)B(4) is a lipid mediator involved in atherogenesis. In 40 non-obese OSA patients, free of a cardiovascular history, and 20 healthy volunteers, the following were evaluated: 1) LTB(4) production by polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNs)(More)
Coronary heart disease is frequently associated with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome and treating obstructive sleep apnea appears to significantly improve the outcome in coronary heart disease. Thus we have developed a rat model of chronic intermittent hypoxia (IH) to study the influence of this condition on myocardial ischemia-reperfusion tolerance and on(More)
OBJECTIVES An increased reactivity to the environment is observed in Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). It would be related to impairment of the Gamma Amino Butyric Acid (GABA) neurotransmission. The study aimed to evaluate plasma GABA concentration as a candidate for PTSD severity biomarker. METHODS This hypothesis was studied in 17 PTSD patients and(More)
