Partial ablation of the left fronto-parietal cerebral cortex decreases the number of spleen T cells, impairs IgG-alpha SRBC and T mitogen-induced responses, and delays the response to alloantigens. In contrast, these events are increased following a symmetric lesion of the right neocortex. The findings extend previous results showing that the neocortex(More)
The natural killer (NK) reactivity of mouse spleen cells is controlled by the left brain neocortex and not by the right symmetrical brain area. The finding strongly suggests direct relationships between the central nervous system and the immune system, both involved in biological adaptation for the maintenance of homeostasis and body integrity in relation(More)
The annual cost of eculizumab maintenance therapy in paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH) and atypical hemolytic-uremic syndrome (aHUS) exceeds $300,000 per patient. A better understanding of eculizumab pharmacokinetics and subsequent individual dose adjustment could reduce this cost. We measured the trough eculizumab concentration in 9 patients with(More)
Risk factors for bacterial infections in chronic hemodialysis adult patients: a multicenter prospective study. Pharmacokinetics of bevacizumab in haemodialysis Sir, Bevacizumab, a recombinant humanized monoclonal anti-body against VEGF (rhuMAb VEGF, Avastin was approved as a treatment for metastatic renal cell carcinoma (RCC) [1]. However, no bevacizumab(More)
A 64-year-old woman was repeatedly hospitalized for various recurrent clinical signs of central nervous system involvement. The diagnosis of primary Sjögren's syndrome was established 3 years 6 months after the onset of the disease. Sicca symptoms, as well as inflammatory biological abnormalities were absent. Moreover, both lacrymal and salivary gland(More)
A case of delayed acute measles encephalitis in an immunosuppressed child is reported. Detailed immunological studies have shown defective humoral immunity (defective IgA, IgG2 and IgG3) and decreased natural killer activity. Neuroradiological examination by magnetic resonance imaging revealed several high signal lesions on T2-weighted images in the gray(More)
