A significant increase in the dose intensity of chemotherapy with fluoropyrimidines and platinum complexes has resulted from selective circadian timing and/or circadian modulation of the infusion rate. The relevance of such chronopharmacologic strategy for improving the outcome of metastatic colorectal cancer was evaluated in an extended Phase II clinical(More)
The role of arbuscular mycorrhiza in reducing Cd stress was investigated in three genotypes of Pisum sativum L. (cv. Frisson, VIR4788, VIR7128), grown in soil/sand pot cultures in the presence and absence of 2-3 mg kg(-1) bioavailable Cd, and inoculated or not with the arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus Glomus intraradices. Shoot, root and pod biomass were(More)
The toxic effects and tissue uptake of both cisplatin and oxaliplatin--[(1R, 2R)-1,2-cyclohexanediamine-N,N'] [oxalato(2-)-O,O']platinum--were previously shown to vary similarly according to dosing time in mice. A 4-hour infusion of cisplatin resulted in fewer side effects and allowed administration of higher doses at 16 hours than at 4 hours in patients(More)
The toxicity of 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) was decreased by two to eight-fold if this drug was injected in mice near the middle of the day (rest span) rather than in the middle of the night (activity span). If the rhythm in 5-FU toxicity is linked to the sleep-wakefulness endogenous circadian cycle across species, the least toxic time in man would correspond to(More)
The authors report a case of a cerebral embolism, with a rapidly resolving course, during late fibrinolysis using tissue plasminogen activator in a patient with a posterolateral myocardial infarction. A review of the literature is used as basis for considering the effects of fibrinolytic treatment on left intraventricular thrombi during the acute phase of(More)
Applying sewage sludges to agricultural land is a widespread practice because of the sludges’ agronomic value as a source of plant nutrients and organic matter. Nevertheless, sludges often contain micropollutants that can constitute a menace for health and the environment. Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi are sensitive to sewage sludges that have been spiked,(More)
Periodic hypokaliemic paralysis is an usual cause of severe hypokaliemia. Thyrotoxicosis periodic paralysis (TPP) is less common. Incidence is high in Asian people and rarely reported in caucasian people. We describe the case of a young caucasian male, with a TPP. Clinical symptoms of hypokaliemia are strong, when thyrotoxicosis symptoms appear only on(More)
