BACKGROUND The preservation of fish egg quality after ovulation-control protocols is a major issue for the development of specific biotechnological processes (e.g. nuclear transfer). Depending on the species, it is often necessary to control the timing of ovulation or induce the ovulatory process. The hormonal or photoperiodic control of ovulation can(More)
A dysfunction of retinoid hippocampal signaling pathway has been involved in the appearance of affective and cognitive disorders. However, the underlying neurobiological mechanisms remain unknown. Hippocampal granule neurons are generated throughout life and are involved in emotion and memory. Here, we investigated the effects of vitamin A deficiency (VAD)(More)
BACKGROUND In fish, oocyte post-ovulatory ageing is associated with egg quality decrease. During this period, eggs are held in the body cavity where they bath in a semi-viscous liquid known as coelomic fluid (CF). CF components are suspected to play a role in maintaining oocyte fertility and developmental competence (egg quality). However, CF proteic(More)
BACKGROUND The relevance of immune-endocrine interactions to the regulation of ovarian function in teleosts is virtually unexplored. As part of the innate immune response during infection, a number of cytokines such as tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF alpha) and other immune factors, are produced and act on the reproductive system. However, TNF alpha is(More)
Long-term therapy with protease inhibitors (PIs) can induce hypertriglyceridemia and development of a lipodystrophy. To better understand these metabolic alterations, the apoprotein and lipoparticle profile was investigated in male HIV patients under antiretroviral therapy: 49 received PIs, and 14 were given only two reverse transcriptase inhibitors. As(More)
INTRODUCTION Temozolomide and concomitant radiotherapy followed by temozolomide has been used as a standard therapy for the treatment of newly diagnosed glioblastoma multiform since 2005. A search for prognostic factors was conducted in patients with glioblastoma routinely treated by this strategy in our institution. METHODS This retrospective study(More)
INTRODUCTION Mycetoma is a chronic granulomatous infection caused by environmental fungi or bacteria. It affects dermal and subcutaneous tissues, with putative contiguous extension to muscles or bones. While common in tropical and subtropical areas, mycetoma is rare in Europe. CASE PRESENTATION We describe a case of Actinomadura meyerae osteitis in a(More)
Rhino-cerebral fungal infections are rare and difficult disorders to cure. We report the case of a woman presenting a left trigeminal neuralgia complicated by ophthalmoplegia and blindness. MRI demonstrated a lesion of the left orbital apex with extension into the cavernous sinus. Fungal infiltration (aspergillosis or mucormycosis), was seen on biopsy.(More)
