A patient developed fulminant hepatic failure 48 h after the ingestion of T 61, a veterinary euthanasia drug which contains both general and local anesthetics, a neuromuscular blocking agent, and dimethylformamide (DMF) as a solvent. This is the first report of such severe hepatic manifestation in T 61 poisoning, the most common symptoms of which are early(More)
Thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) and luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (LH-RH) have been measured by radioimmunoassay in individual human hypothalamic nuclei. A significant lateralization has been found for TRH in the ventromedial, dorsal and paraventricular nuclei, with higher concentration in the left side. In contrast LH-RH values did not differ(More)
During the phase I trials, from the juridical point of view, the responsibilities are shared between the pharmaceutical company and the physician who manages the trial. The pharmaceutical company is responsible for the product, the choice of methodology and respect for the regulations. On the financial side, the company is liable for paying any damages.(More)
Coburn's differential equation for the uptake of carbon monoxide by hemoglobin and two particular types of solution of this equation were considered and the solutions verified for a group of healthy adults consisting of 73 nonsmoking pedestrians or car passengers exposed to low levels of carbon monoxide as experienced in the city of Lyon. The CO levels at(More)
High-affinity goat antibodies and Fab fragments (Ka = 1.1 x 10(10) M(-1) specific to colchicine were prepared to study their effect on colchicine pharmacokinetics in rabbits. First, colchicine disposition kinetics were investigated in four control rabbits after administration of 0.1 mg/kg i.v. Total and free plasma and urine colchicine were assayed by(More)
High-affinity Fab fragments (2 x 10(10) M-1) specific to colchicine were produced to evaluate their potency in reversing murine colchicine intoxication. Intraperitoneal injection of a 4.46 mg/kg colchicine dose was lethal for 100% of mice. 1.5 h after colchicine administration, a group of 10 mice was treated with colchicine-specific Fab fragments at a(More)
Investigation of post mortem neurobiochemical changes is an important field in biological psychiatry which allows analyses of the analogies between peripherical markers and the central neurochemical processes they represent. Our study discusses the pathological neuroanatomy (collection and conservation of the anatomical specimens) and clinical criteria(More)
