A cortical adrenal carcinoma arising during the neonatal period and associated with virilization recurred after an initial excision and is in complete remission after a follow-up period of 10 years. The authors have performed a review of the medical literature which has yielded 56 neonatal carcinomas including this one. More than half of these cases(More)
The aim of the present study was to evaluate the potential antidiabetic effects of two-component drug Subetta and its components (release-active dilutions of antibodies to β -subunit insulin receptor (RAD of Abs to β -InsR) and to endothelial nitric oxide synthase (RAD of Abs to eNOS)) in Goto-Kakizaki (Paris colony) (GK/Par) diabetic rats. Subetta was(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the frequency of cervical stenosis in patients treated by laser conization or the loop electrosurgical excision procedure and to determine the preoperative and therapeutic factors associated with its occurrence. METHODS Two hundred fifty-five women treated by laser conization and 277 treated by loop electrosurgical excision procedure(More)
We conducted a case-control study to determine the relative and attributable risk of HIV seropositivity for bacillary-positive (smear and/or culture) pulmonary tuberculosis in Haiti. There were 274 patients with tuberculosis and an equal number of control subjects. Antibodies to HIV were present in 67 (24%) patients and eight (3%) control subjects. Odds(More)
The reliability of cytology, colposcopy, and directed biopsy were assessed in pregnancy and compared with that observed in a matched non-pregnant control group in order to evaluate the influence of pregnancy. One hundred and seventeen gravidas in which the final pathology could be ascertained and 234 control patients were examined by the same colposcopist.(More)
SLC30A8 encodes a zinc transporter ZnT8 largely restricted to pancreatic islet β- and α-cells, and responsible for zinc accumulation into secretory granules. Although common SLC30A8 variants, believed to reduce ZnT8 activity, increase type 2 diabetes risk in humans, rare inactivating mutations are protective. To investigate the role of Slc30a8 in the(More)
A detailed colposcopy study of the cervix, vagina and vulva was conducted in 365 women referred for genital human papillomavirus (HPV) lesions, abnormal cervico-vaginal smear or cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN). Valvuloscopic abnormalities, all biopsied, were found in 144 women, i.e. 40% of the population studied. Five types of vulvoscopic(More)
OBJECTIVE Dietary supplement may potentially help to fight obesity and other metabolic disorders such as insulin-resistance and low-grade inflammation. The present study aimed to test whether supplementation with Agaricus blazei murill (ABM) extract could have an effect on diet-induced obesity in rats. DESIGN AND METHODS Wistar rats were fed with control(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Isoflurane has been shown experimentally to protect the myocardium against infarction but the clinical relevance of these findings is not yet well established. We therefore evaluated the effects of isoflurane administration before cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) on postoperative cardiac troponin I (cTnI) release and clinical outcome in(More)
Three Kaposi's sarcoma biopsy specimens obtained from three African patients with typical nodular cutaneous tumors were investigated morphologically for cellular modifications suggestive of a viral origin. In one case a Kaposi's sarcoma cell of the endothelial type contained a few intranuclear herpes-type viral inclusions. The present findings complement(More)
