In this study we analyzed gene expression in 3T3-F442A pre-adipocyte cells that differentiate in the presence of micro-molar arsenate concentration. Two concentrations of arsenite (As2O3, 0.25 μmol/L and 0.5 μmol/L) were applied for three days with and without insulin (170 nmol/L) and gene expressions were evaluated by quantitative RT-PCR. The genes(More)
Our aim was to investigate the corticospinal tracts (CST) in motor neurone disease, using MRI, and to correlate findings with clinical data. We studied 31 patients with amyotrophic (ALS) and eight with primary lateral sclerosis (PLS). The signal from the CST was classified into four grades on T2-weighted images, and compared to T2-weighted images of 37(More)
Capillary malformations do not demand mostly any therapeutics. For aesthetic reasons, family or child can demand a treatment to ease even to remove the unsightly character of the lesion. In this context, the means employees must be simple and not engender aftereffects more unaesthetic than the lesion. The pulsed dye laser fulfils perfectly this conditions(More)
OBJECTIVE Complex regional pain syndrome type I (CRPS-I) is now considered as a central nervous system disease with peripheral manifestations. CRPS-I may result from a mismatch between sensory input and motor output leading to a disorganization of motor programming in cortical structures. According to previous studies in the field of motor control, one(More)
Children with severe congenital blepharoptosis are at risk of developing amblyopia. For this reason, ptosis repair is indicated as soon as the diagnosis is made. Frontalis suspension of the upper lid is an effective and simple method of treatment. This study reports on the long-term outcome of frontalis suspension surgery for congenital ptosis using(More)
Cutaneous dermatologic lesions of LM, in type of superficial, translucent, localized or diffuse vesicles, are accessible to laser treatment. The useful lasers are essentially laser CO(2), and rarely pulsed dye laser and the Nd: YAG. Treatment by laser allows to obtain the ablation of vesicles by limiting aftereffects (scare) and so to dry up the(More)
The use of pre-filled valveless gas canisters for lamps or camping stoves has caused a number of serious burn incidents. We performed a retrospective analysis of all of the patients who were victims of such incidents admitted to the Marseille Burn Centre between January 1990 and March 2004. There were a total of 21 patients burned in such conditions. Adult(More)
INTRODUCTION Phalangeal neck fractures are unusual, occurring mainly in children. This study aims at assessing the results of treatment of this type of fracture and presents a new technique for displaced fractures namely intrafocal pinning. PATIENTS AND METHODS From January 2001 to January 2007, we treated 49 children (32 boys and 17 girls) with 52(More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY Fingertip crush injuries are frequent in young children. Rigorous care is required to avoid esthetic and functional sequelae, but treatment is often difficult. We report our experience focusing on simple therapeutic principles useful for everyday practice in the emergency room. MATERIAL AND METHODS We reviewed retrospectively 91(More)
Hibernoma is a rare benign tumour of brown fat. In most cases it presents as a voluminous slow-growing mass in the regions where remnants of brown fat can remain in adults. We report a case of a hibernoma on the thigh and present the diagnostic and therapeutic elements of this type of tumour, whose differential diagnosis of liposarcoma.
