OBJECTIVE To investigate the cognitive profile of first degree relatives of patients with familial Parkinson's disease to determine whether these subjects presented signs of neuropsychological dysfunction compared with healthy controls. Results of recent genetic and neuroimaging studies suggest a genetic contribution to the aetiology of Parkinson's disease(More)
The work in this paper is a case study. This paper describes how we are provisioning QoS in a real-time distributed object platform able to support power plant control applications. A previous experiment with a modified Java-ChorusOS-ATM platform based on RM-ODP/ReTINA binding objects enhanced our knowledge on QoS based distributed object systems.(More)
Osteoid osteomas are often localised in long bones but only rarely in the carpus. This is a case report of an osteoid osteoma in the trapezoid. Diagnosis was difficult and established late, due to misleading initial symptoms. Radiological examination allowed localisation of the nidus. For osteoid osteoma localised in a carpal bone, we recommend total(More)
Some studies have demonstrated that the motor symptomatology in sporadic and familial Parkinson's disease was identical. From a physiopathological point of view, and perhaps in the future from a therapeutic point of view, it seems important to determine whether sporadic and familial Parkinson's disease are also similar with regard to cognitive impairment.(More)
Parkinson's disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative disorder for which genetic susceptibility has been documented in sporadic and familial cases. Recently, a polymorphism located in exon 3 at codon 18 (S18Y) of the Ubiquitin Carboxy-terminal Hydrolase-L1 (UCH-L1) gene has been associated with the disease in 2 populations of German origin and also in a Japanese(More)
We present 11 families consistent with autosomal dominant inheritance of probable Parkinson's disease (PD). Although excluded as a cause of disease in these kindreds, mutations in the alpha-synuclein gene have been implicated in familial PD. The beta-synuclein gene is highly homologous, expressed in the nervous system and thus is a good candidate gene for(More)
alpha-Synuclein is present in Lewy bodies of patients with both sporadic and familial Parkinson's disease. However, pathogenic mutations Ala30Pro and Ala53Thr in alpha-synuclein are rare causes of disease. Synphilin-1 has been demonstrated to associate with alpha-synuclein and promote the formation of cytosolic inclusions in vitro. Two-point genetic linkage(More)
We analyzed the segregation of genetic markers spanning chromosomal regions 2p13, 4p14-15, 4q21-23, 6q25-27, and 17q21 in nine French families affected by autosomal-dominant probable Parkinson's disease. These regions have been linked or associated with familial Parkinson's disease. Multipoint linkage and haplotype analyses excluded 2p13 and 4p14-15 loci in(More)
Absfrucf Our project evaluated the ability of the TASE.2 standard to support EDF's application requirements for small and medium production units. EDF is the French power supplier. Our work focused on TASE.2 conformance blocks 1, 2 and 5. TASE.2 is a companion standard of IS0 MMS. We studied the TASE.2 services through the port of an off-theshelf server(More)
