The iron status of a national sample of adults living in France and participating in the SU.VI.MAX cohort, was assessed using serum ferritin and hemoglobin concentrations. Complete data were obtained for 6648 women 35-60 y old and for 3283 men 45-60 y old. Assessment of iron dietary intakes was realized on a subsample of 3111 women and 2337 men who reported(More)
The objective of this study was to estimate the prevalence of and risk factors for clinical lipodystrophy (LD) and metabolic disorders in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) type 1-infected patients. A cross-sectional survey of the Aquitaine Cohort was performed in January 1999. The clinical diagnosis of LD was categorized as fat wasting (FW), peripheral fat(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the relative contribution of intrinsic aging vs lifestyle factors to facial skin age. DESIGN Prospective analysis of a cohort. SETTING Skin research institute. STUDY SUBJECTS A cohort of 361 white women (age range, 18-80 years) with apparently healthy skin. MEASUREMENTS Visual and tactile assessment of facial skin features. (More)
This research aimed to test whether supplementation with a combination of antioxidant vitamins and minerals could reduce the risk of skin cancers (SC). It was performed within the framework of the Supplementation in Vitamins and Mineral Antioxidants study, a randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled, primary prevention trial testing the efficacy of(More)
BACKGROUND Intake of monounsaturated fatty acids has been reported to reduce oxidative stress, insulin resistance and related inflammatory processes and may thus protect from skin photoaging. The objective of this study was to investigate the association between the risk of photoaging, monounsaturated fatty acids intake and the sources of monounsaturated(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare a severe protein restriction diet supplemented with ketoanalogues to a moderate protein restriction diet in order to limit glomerular filtration rate (GFR) decrease in an advanced renal insufficiency stage. DESIGN Prospective randomised study conducted to compare a severe protein restriction diet (0.30 g/kg/day) supplemented with a(More)
BACKGROUND Chikungunya fever is an emerging arboviral disease characterized by an algo-eruptive syndrome, inflammatory polyarthralgias, or tenosynovitis that can last for months to years. Up to now, the pathophysiology of the chronic stage is poorly understood. CASE PRESENTATION We report the first case of CHIKV infection with chronic associated(More)
Serum antioxidant vitamins A (retinol) and E (alpha-tocopherol), beta-carotene, zinc and selenium for 418 children with newly diagnosed malignancy were compared with those of 632 cancer-free controls. Incident cancer cases and controls were 1-16 years old and recruited in 1986-1989. Age- and sex-adjusted serum concentrations of retinol, beta-carotene and(More)
OBJECTIVES It is still debated if pre-existing minority drug-resistant HIV-1 variants (MVs) affect the virological outcomes of first-line NNRTI-containing ART. METHODS This Europe-wide case-control study included ART-naive subjects infected with drug-susceptible HIV-1 as revealed by population sequencing, who achieved virological suppression on first-line(More)
Age- and sex-specific reference intervals of data derived from a healthy paediatric population are presented for retinol, beta-carotene, alpha-tocopherol, cholesterol and related proteins in serum. Age was an important covariate for the micronutrient concentration values. Retinol was highly correlated with alpha-tocopherol and cholesterol. Strong(More)
