Restriction mapping and the determination of scattered nucleotide sequences have permitted a description of the global structure and evolutionary affinities of the canine herpesvirus (CHV) genome. The global structure closely resembles that of the totally sequenced genomes of varicella-zoster virus and equine herpesvirus 1 (EHV-1) in having a 37 bp inverted(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Perception of the subjective visual vertical (SVV) is affected by cerebral hemispheric lesions. Knowledge of this disturbance is of interest for the study of its possible relation to balance disturbances. There is still uncertainty about the possible effects of a visual field defect and of the side and site of the lesion. This study(More)
Malignant melanoma of the lacrimal sac is rare, and only 21 cases have been reported in the world literature. They have an insidious onset and may look like chronic dacryocystitis. In only 6 of these cases were there no recurrences. In most of the survivors, the diagnosis was made early which appears to be the most important prognostic factor. Hence a(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate clinical prognostic factors of complex regional pain syndrome type I (CRPS I) in patients with stroke in an attempt to improve the Perrigot score, which does not include shoulder subluxation, unilateral neglect, or depression. DESIGN This was a prospective study. The initial clinical data (first month) included motor index, Ashworth(More)
A serological survey was carried out on French cattle to establish a reference pattern of residual vaccine antibodies and non-specific reactions against the foot-and-mouth disease virus 6 years after the ban on vaccination and in the absence of any foot-and-mouth disease outbreak. Most of the multi-vaccinated cattle still displayed high titres of antibodies(More)
OBJECTIVE to test the hypothesis that placental fetal thrombotic vasculopathy (FTV) is associated with obstetric complications and predisposes the child to unfavorable outcomes. METHODS 54 placentas with FTV lesions and 100 placentas without FTV lesions were collected over a 5-year period at the Croix-Rousse Pathology Department. Clinical findings(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate whether foot and mouth disease virus (FMDV) interacts with in vitro produced (IVP) bovine embryos. One milliliter of a suspension of FMDV (2 x 10(7) TCID50/mL) was added to several batches of these embryos 7 d after in vitro fertilization, by which time they had either developed to the morula/blastocyst stage (n =(More)
Multiple sequence alignments of evolutionarily related proteins are finding increasing use as indicators of critical amino acid residues necessary for structural stability or involved in functional domains responsible for catalytic activities. In the past, a number of alignments have provided such information for the herpesviral thymidine kinases, for which(More)
A congenital dermoid together with a bronchogenic cyst of the tongue is extremely rare. The diagnosis made in this case of a 1-year-old boy was "teratoid cyst of the tongue". A surgical exploration was performed under general anaesthesia via a midline sagittal glossotomy. The tumour was completely dissected and excised, the microscopical examination of the(More)
BACKGROUND Alloimmunization against human platelet antigens (HPAs) can occur prenatally and induce fetal/neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia (FNAIT). The aim of this study was to identify placental histological features associated with platelet alloimmunization and their clinical significance. METHODS This study examined 21 placentas from FNAIT-affected(More)
