Synopsis The oily aspect of a hair is not only the consequence of an excessive lipidic production on the scalp; the quality of the fatty mixture should also be considered. Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) is a useful tool for qualitative examination of human sebum. The melting curves recorded using this technique characterise the seborrhoeic state of(More)
Prolongation of QT interval by antipsychotic drugs is an unwanted side effect that may lead to ventricular arrhythmias. The antipsychotic agent risperidone has been shown to cause QT prolongation, especially in case of overdosage. We investigated risperidone effects on action potentials recorded from rabbit Purkinje fibers and ventricular myocardium and on(More)
The hospitalised patients in a cardiological hospital (Lille, France) over an 18-month period were subjected to a prospective high-intensity adverse drug reaction (ADR) monitoring in order to assess the additional financial resource utilisation associated with ADRs and analyse the distribution of excess of cost according to ADR nature and therapeutic(More)
In addition to their impact on human health, adverse drug reactions (ADRs) also have significant impact on healthcare costs. These costs are essentially hospital costs, in particular arising from an increase in length of stay caused by an ADR. Although it has been estimated that the occurrence of an ADR during hospitalisation or leading to hospitalisation(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Polymorphonuclear neutrophils (PMNs) contribute to the vascular damage caused by transient cerebral ischaemia. Here we have evaluated the role of PMNs in intracerebral haemorrhage (ICH) induced in a model of thrombolysis with recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (t-PA) during the acute phase of cerebral ischaemia. EXPERIMENTAL(More)
Adverse drug interactions increase morbidity and mortality. To prevent these, situations leading to adverse prescriptions must be clarified. This study quantifies and analyses prescriptions with potential adverse drug interactions in primary health care in the North of France over a 3-month period. All prescriptions administered between 1 January 1999 and(More)
Germline mutations of the RET proto-oncogene are responsible for multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2, including multiple endocrine type 2A (MEN 2A), type 2B (MEN 2B), and familial medullary thyroid carcinoma. The relationship between specific mutations and syndromic features has been established. In particular, the risk for pheochromocytoma and(More)
Adverse drug reactions (ADRs) have been recognised as an important cause of hospital admission. Most of these drug-related admissions were expected ADRs and, thus, partly preventable. However, as far as we know, the assessment of the preventability of ADRs was addressed in only two studies performed in France. In contrast, several other studies have been(More)
Various methods of preparing dermal application sites in Fischer 344 rats prior to exposure to 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid dimethylamine salt (2,4-D amine) and the effect of various cleansing agents following exposure were examined by measuring recoveries of 14C-labeled 2,4-D amine in skin, postapplication cleansing solution, blood, and urine.
