BACKGROUND & AIMS Recent findings in hepatitis C virus (HCV)-monoinfected patients have shown a correlation between low serum levels of 25-OH vitamin D3 [25(OH)D3] and severe liver fibrosis and low sustained virologic response to therapy. Data are lacking in HIV-HCV coinfected patients. METHODS One hundred and eighty nine HIV-HCV coinfected patients, who(More)
BACKGROUND Behçet disease (BD) is a chronic systemic inflammatory disorder of unknown etiology. OBJECTIVE To determine the nature of T cells driving inflammatory lesions in BD. METHODS T cell homeostasis and cytokines production were analyzed in peripheral blood and brain inflammatory lesions from 45 adult patients with BD (active and untreated BD [n =(More)
Cardiac abnormalities in patients with Behçet disease (BD) include pericarditis, myocarditis, endocarditis with valvular regurgitation, intracardiac thrombosis, endomyocardial fibrosis, coronary arteritis with or without myocardial infarction, and aneurysms of the coronary arteries or sinus of Valsalva. Data regarding the clinical spectrum, prevalence, and(More)
The influence of blood glucose (BG) level during the post-resuscitation period after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) is still debated. To evaluate the relationship between blood glucose level and outcome, we included the median glycemia and its maximal amplitude over the first 48 h following ICU admission in an analysis of outcome predictors. We(More)
OBJECTIVE Takayasu arteritis (TAK) is a large-vessel vasculitis that induces damage to the aorta and its branches. Glucocorticoids remain the gold standard of therapy for TAK. The nature of the T cells driving vascular inflammation and the effects of glucocorticoids on the systemic components of TAK are not understood. The aim of this study was to analyze T(More)
BACKGROUND Although epinephrine is essential for successful return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC), the influence of this drug on recovery during the post-cardiac arrest phase is debatable. OBJECTIVES This study sought to investigate the relationship between pre-hospital use of epinephrine and functional survival among patients with out-of-hospital(More)
AIMS Survival after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) remains disappointingly low. Among patients admitted alive, early prognostication remains challenging. This study aims to establish a stratification score for patients admitted in intensive care unit (ICU) after OHCA, according to their neurological outcome. METHODS AND RESULTS The CAHP (Cardiac(More)
The vasculitis of Behçet disease (BD) is distinctive because of involvement of both arteries and veins of all sizes. The concept of vasculo-Behçet disease has been adopted for cases in which vascular manifestations are present and often dominate the clinical features. While venous manifestations are frequent and have been reported in many publications, data(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with systemic rheumatic diseases (SRDs) may require ICU management for SRD exacerbation or treatment-related infections or toxicities. METHODS This was an observational study at 10 university-affiliated ICUs in France. Consecutive patients with SRDs were included. Determinants of ICU mortality were identified through multivariable(More)
OBJECTIVE Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is an autoimmune disease characterized by alterations of the B cell subset, global regulatory T cell (Treg) depletion, and an increase in Th17 cells. Interleukin 21 (IL-21) plays a critical role in T cell and B cell homeostasis. Our objective was to determine the implication of IL-21 and IL-21-producing CD4+ T(More)
