Chronically epileptic rats, produced by prior injection of pilocarpine, were used to investigate whether changes in intrinsic neuronal excitability may contribute to the epileptogenicity of the hippocampus in experimental temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE). Paired extra-/intracellular electrophysiological recordings were made in the CA1 pyramidal layer in acute(More)
We tested the hypothesis that angiotensin II (Ang II)-induced stimulations of endothelin (ET) and isoprostanes are implicated in the slow pressor responses to Ang II. We infused either vehicle (group 1) or Ang II (groups 2 to 4) intravenously at 5 ng/kg per minute via osmotic pumps for 15 days into Sprague-Dawley rats. Groups 3 and 4 received 30 mg/kg per(More)
Intrinsic or acquired resistance to the HER2-targeted therapy trastuzumab is a clinical concern in the treatment of patients with HER2-over-expressing metastatic breast cancers. We demonstrate here that multiple models of intrinsic and acquired resistance exhibit increased phosphorylation of p38 MAPK. Kinase inhibition of p38 rescued trastuzumab sensitivity(More)
Thyroglobuline (Tg) is a large molecule of high molecular weight mainly indicated in monitoring differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC), its measurement remains difficult. We report the case of a patient who underwent total thyroidectomy for a poorly differentiated thyroid insular carcinoma. Despite several (131)I treatments, a progressive elevation of serum Tg(More)
