Adverse drug reactions are a common cause of patient morbidity and mortality. Type B drug reactions comprise only 20% of all drug reactions but they tend to be primarily immunologically mediated and less dependent on the drug's pharmacological action and dose. Common Type B reactions seen in clinical practice are those of the immediate, IgE, Gell-Coombs(More)
OBJECTIVES This study sought to examine nevirapine hypersensitivity (NVP HSR) phenotypes and their relationship with differing major histocompatibility complex (MHC) Class I and Class II alleles and the associated CD4 and CD8 T-cell NVP-specific responses and their durability over time. METHODS A retrospective cohort study compared HIV-positive patients(More)
Methods Peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) were isolated from patients with CBZ-SJS/TEN and healthy controls, stimulated with 10ug/mL CBZ (Sigma, cat. no. C4024-5G) and cultured over a 9-14 day period. RNA was isolated at various time points and TCR V subtypes were assessed using digital droplet PCR (Bio-Rad QX100 droplet digital PCR system).

Genes of the human leukocyte antigen (HLA) system encode cell-surface proteins involved in regulation of immune responses, and the way drugs interact with the HLA peptide binding groove is important in the immunopathogenesis of T-cell mediated drug hypersensitivity syndromes. Nevirapine (NVP), is an HIV-1 antiretroviral with treatment-limiting(More)
Although ovarian metastasis of digestive cancers were well known since more 80 years, the management of ovaries is still discussed. The authors reviewed 112 cases of digestive tumors in female patients operated between 1973 and 1987, excluding the peritoneal carcinomatosis, and report 7 cases of ovarian metastasis. The primary carcinoma was gastric (2(More)
The authors report results of prospective study about skin closure of peritonitis. Two groups are compared: Group A: continuous suture + suction drain VS Group B: simple suture at wide intervals of 4 cm. 93 patients have been included with a mean age of 53.2 +/- 23.9 and just before surgery randomized. Two groups are homogeneous. The postoperative parietal(More)
