Essential oils may be effective preventive or curative treatments against several flagelated poultry parasites and may become primordial either to organic farms, or as more drugs are bannished. The anti-flagellate activity of essential oils obtained from fresh leaves of Cinnamomum aromaticum, Citrus limon pericarps and Allium sativum bulbs was investigated(More)
OBJECTIVE Diabetic nephropathy (DN) is a long-term complication of both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Genetic studies on DN have been of little help so far, since several genetic association studies have shown conflicting results. Here we report the findings of a case-control study on five SNPs in the glucose transporter 1 (GLUT1) gene. The study investigated(More)
In absence of available matched-related or unrelated donor (MUD), mismatched unrelated donors (MMUD) and unrelated cord blood (UCB) are both considered to be suitable donors, with similar post-transplant overall survival. In most of these retrospective comparisons, HLA typing of adult donors was performed at eight loci. The aim of this study was to compare(More)
Inhibitory receptors expressed by T cells mediate tolerance to tumor antigens, with coexpression of these receptors exacerbating this dysfunctional state. Using the VectraR automated multiparametric immunofluorescence technique, we quantified intratumoral CD8+ T cells coexpressing the inhibitory receptors PD-1 and Tim-3 from patients with renal cell(More)
Mismatched unrelated donor (MMUD) or umbilical cord blood (UCB) can be chosen as alternative donors for allogeneic stem cell transplantation but might be associated with long-lasting immune deficiency. Sixty-six patients who underwent a first transplantation from either UCB (n = 30) or 9/10 MMUD (n = 36) and who survived beyond 3 months were evaluated.(More)
The expression of certain HLA class I alleles, including HLA-B*27 and HLA-B*57, is associated with better control of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) infection, but the mechanisms responsible are not fully understood. We sought evidence that pressure from the human restriction factor TRIM5α (hTRIM5α) could contribute to viral control. The hTRIM5α(More)
BACKGROUND T2DM is a complex metabolic disease. Genetic studies on T2DM have been of little help so far because several genetic association studies have shown conflicting results. In this study, we report the findings of a case-control study on three SNPs in the GLUT1 gene. For this, we investigated the association of GLUT1 genotypes and haplotypes with(More)
Despite the renaissance of cancer immunotherapy, no novel immunotherapy has been approved for the treatment of renal cell cancer (RCC) since the availability of recombinant cytokines (interleukin-2, interferon-α). All vaccine trials have failed to meet their endpoints although they have highlighted potential predictive biomarkers (e.g., pre-existing immune(More)
Histomoniasis or blackhead is a life-threatening disease of turkeys that is caused by a flagellated protozoan, Histomonas meleagridis. The development of an assay to measure the sensitivity of drugs traditionally used against this parasite, as reputed to be effective against other protozoan parasites, is described. The in vitro minimum lethal concentrations(More)
