Although the nephrotoxicity of uranium has been established through numerous animal studies, relatively little is known about the effects of long-term environmental uranium exposure. Using a combination of conventional biochemical studies and serial analysis of gene expression (SAGE), we examined the renal responses to uranyl nitrate (UN) chronic exposure.(More)
We have established the INFEVERS--INternet periodic FEVERS--website (which is freely accessible at http://fmf.igh.cnrs.fr/infevers/). Our objectives were to develop a specialist site to gather updated information on mutations responsible for hereditary inflammatory disorders: i.e. Familial Mediterranean Fever (FMF), TRAPS (TNF Receptor 1A Associated(More)
BACKGROUND Chemical and radiological toxicities related to uranium acute exposure have been widely studied in nuclear fuel workers and military personnel. It is well known that uranyl nitrate induces acute renal failure (ARF). However, the mechanisms of this metal-induced injury are not well defined at the molecular level. RESULTS Renal function and(More)
We present here the MetaFMF database (freely accessible at http://fmf.igh.cnrs.fr/metaFMF/index_us.html) that attempts to gather and unify, in a common resource, data on phenotype-genotype correlation in familial Mediterranean fever (FMF). A single accession form, including a large number of quality controls, has been implemented such that data, collected(More)
Familial Mediterranean fever is an autosomal recessive disease characterised by multiple attacks of serosal inflammation in the absence of treatment. In the absence of timely diagnosis, renal amyloidosis is a life threatening complication. The diagnosis is often missed because no specific test is available. Early colchicine treatment prevents attacks and(More)
