OBJECTIVE To describe the clinical manifestations of the anti-synthetase syndrome (ASS) specifically associated with anti-alanyl-tRNA (anti-PL12) synthetase antibodies. METHODS In a retrospective study, 17 patients (eight males, nine females, mean age = 60.3 years) with ASS symptoms confirmed by two consecutive tests (cyto-dot and/or immunoblot, or both),(More)
INTRODUCTION Our objective was to investigate characteristics risk factors and outcomes of patients with chronic pulmonary aspergillosis (CPA). METHODS The Aspergillosis Committee prospectively collected Aspergillus notifications from January 2000 to December 2011. A retrospective analysis of data was performed. RESULTS Among 1614 notifications(More)
BACKGROUND Microbiological diagnosis of aspergillosis and triazole resistance is limited by poor culture yield. To better estimate this shortcoming, we compared culture and molecular detection of A. fumigatus in respiratory samples from French patients at risk for aspergillosis. METHODS A total of 97 respiratory samples including bronchoalveolar lavages(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the short-term adverse events and effectiveness of lumacaftor/ivacaftor combination treatment in adults with cystic fibrosis (CF) and severe lung disease in a real life setting. METHODS A multicentre observational study investigated adverse events, treatment discontinuation, FEV1 and body mass index (BMI) one month and three(More)
Anti-Aspergillus IgG antibodies are important biomarkers for the diagnosis of chronic pulmonary aspergillosis (CPA) and allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA). We compared the performance of a new commercial enzyme immunoassay (EIA) (Bordier Affinity Products) with that of the Bio-Rad and Virion\Serion EIAs. This assay is novel in its association of(More)
BACKGROUND After lung transplantation (LT), immunoglobulin (Ig) G plasma concentrations<6 g/L are common and correlate with an increased risk of chronic lung allograft dysfunction (CLAD) and a poorer survival. METHODS We conducted an open substitution intervention with nonspecific intravenous Ig (IVIg), in all patients with IgG plasma less than 6 g/L(More)
Mycoplasma hominis has been incriminated in several genital and extragenital infections. Here, we report the first case of perihepatitis associated with a perinephric abscess in a woman who had received a kidney transplant. Four months after the transplant, the patient was admitted for perirenal allograft pain, fever, and elevated inflammatory parameters(More)
We herein describe a case of secondary syphilis hepatitis in a liver transplant patient. This homosexual man presented 15 years after an orthotopic liver transplant with nonsquamous papillomacular rash, mild cytolysis, and anicteric cholestasis. Laboratory tests showed syphilis seroconversionwith a VDRL test titer of 1/256, a Treponema pallidum(More)

BACKGROUND Recent discovery of cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator expression in human skeletal muscle suggests that CF patients may have intrinsic skeletal muscle abnormalities potentially leading to functional impairments. The aim of the present study was to determine whether CF patients with mild to moderate lung disease have altered(More)
