Cryptosporidium parvum causes life-threatening diarrhoea in immunocompromised, especially AIDS patients and the efficiency of proposed anti-cryptosporidial therapies is limited or doubtful. An immunosuppressed adult rat model of C. parvum infection was developed for screening molecules candidate for curative and preventive activity in human(More)
1-2 dimethylhydrazine was injected subcutaneously on a weekly basis of 15 mg/kg, during periods ranging from one to twenty-eight weeks into five hundred Wistar rats. Glandular-mucin depletion appears as early as the second injection (sulfomucins disappear). From the sixth week, one observes dysplasia; if the animals are allowed to survive for a longer(More)
Vascular endothelial cells were labelled with 10 vegetal lectins and 3 more monoclonal antibodies antiblood group ABO substances, in major organs of 14 common laboratory animals. After fixation in PLPa and paraffin embedding, cells were examined to determine their likeness to human cells. The most interesting reactive used was EEA, whose positivity defines(More)
The arguments for a choice between a large or fine needle in the diagnosis of tumors are still unclear. This paper reviews the advantages and disadvantages of large-needle biopsy and fine needle aspiration. Reports indicate that although the procedures have the same diagnostic efficacy, the risk of tumor seeding is far higher following large-needle biopsy.(More)
The solid-phase synthesis of branched lacto-N-neohexaose derivative 1 occurring in human milk is described. The new building block of lactose 3 bearing the orthogonal temporary hydroxy protecting groups 9-fluorenylmethyloxycarbonyl (Fmoc) and levulinoyl (Lev) has been prepared. Its use, together with that of lactosamine donor 4, glucosamine donor 5, and(More)
One case of pseudotumoral granulomatous renal mass during endovesical bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) therapy for superficial bladder neoplasm is reported. Such an adverse effect is exceptional and is clearly related to a vesicorenal reflux in our patient. In this case ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration was able to settle the diagnosis and avoid(More)
Human papillomavirus (HPV) antigen was found in one of six noninfiltrating (grade II) carcinomas of the bladder. The antigen was located in the nuclei of the superficial cells. This virus-bearing tumor occurred in a patient with no known risk factors. The presence of HPV in low-grade urinary lesions seems to be frequent and may reflect the early stages of(More)
To reduce the number of injections needed to comply with paediatric vaccination requirements, a liquid, hexavalent vaccine (DTaP-IPV-PRP-T-HBs; Hexavac; Aventis Pasteur MSD) has been developed for primary and booster vaccination of infants and toddlers. In extensive clinical studies, Hexavac has been shown to be highly immunogenic. Seroconversion or(More)
The accidental finding of a pseudotumoral para-aortic mass in a 60-year-old woman led to the performance of a fine needle aspiration (FNA) biopsy under ultrasonographic guidance. The milky aspirate was centrifuged and processed as a cell block. The examination of sections confirmed the lymphatic origin of the sample, but also revealed some unexpected(More)
