The prognostic value of 123I-metaiodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) imaging was compared with that of other noninvasive cardiac imaging indices in ninety patients (mean age = 52 +/- 7 yr) suffering from either ischemic (n = 24) or idiopathic (n = 66) cardiomyopathy. Patients had different measurements taken: cardiac MIBG uptake, radionuclide left ventricular(More)
Objective: To assess the preventive effect of Saccharomyces boulardii on diarrhea in critically ill tube-fed patients and to evaluate risk factors for diarrhea. Design: Prospective, multicenter, randomized, double-blind placebo-controlled study. Setting: Eleven intensive care units in teaching and general hospitals. Patients: Critically ill patients whose(More)
UNLABELLED Alterations of cardiac sympathetic innervation are likely to contribute to fatal outcomes in patients with heart failure. These alterations can be evaluated noninvasively by 123I-metaiodoben-zylguanidine (MIBG) imaging. METHODS The hypothesis that impaired cardiac sympathetic innervation, as assessed using MIBG imaging, is related to adverse(More)
AIM Diarrhea is a significant problem in patients on total enteral nutrition (TEN) and may involve changes in intestinal short chain fatty acids or microflora. Recent studies suggest that the probiotic yeast Saccharomyces boulardii (Sb) may decrease its incidence. The aim of this study was to assess the effects of Sb on fecal flora and short-chain fatty(More)
Previous research has led to the idea that derived traits can arise through the evolution of novel roles for conserved genes. We explored whether neuropeptide Y (NPY)-like signalling, a conserved pathway that regulates food-related behaviour, is involved in a derived, nutritionally-related trait, the division of labour in worker honey bees.

Acne can have an important psychological impact. We surveyed 852 adolescents aged 12-25 years about their knowledge of acne and its treatment in a non-medical context. The study involved a questionnaire administered to callers to a youth telephone helpline in France. Callers were categorized into those who currently had acne, those who had had acne(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS Saccharomyces boulardii is a probiotic yeast that has been shown to have beneficial effects on the intestinal epithelial barrier and digestive immune system. There is preliminary evidence that S boulardii could be used to treat patients with Crohn's disease (CD). We performed a randomized, placebo-controlled trial to evaluate the effects(More)
Qvar Autohaler efficacy on asthma control, assessed with E. Juniper asthma control questionnaire (ACQ), was compared with fluticasone and budesonide. An open randomized study, stratified (2:1) on the intake of long-acting beta2-mimetics (LAbeta2), was performed in patients with moderate to severe poorly controlled asthma (defined by at least one nocturnal(More)
BACKGROUND Common carotid artery intima-media thickness (IMT) progression was compared between 4 years of treatment with nifedipine and diuretic. METHODS AND RESULTS This study, ancillary to the International Nifedipine GITS Study: Intervention as a Goal in Hypertension Treatment (INSIGHT), involved nifedipine 30 mg or co-amilozide (hydrochlorothiazide 25(More)
Nephropathic cystinosis is a multisystem autosomal recessive disease caused by cystine accumulation, which is usually treated by oral cysteamine. In order to determine long-term effects of this therapy, we enrolled 86 adult patients (mean age 26.7 years) diagnosed with nephropathic cystinosis, 75 of whom received cysteamine. Therapy was initiated at a mean(More)
