Kidney cortex apoptosis was studied with female Wistar rats treated for 10 days with gentamicin and netilmicin at daily doses of 10 or 20 mg/kg of body weight and amikacin or isepamicin at daily doses of 40 mg/kg. Apoptosis was detected and quantitated using cytological (methyl green-pyronine) and immunohistochemical (terminal(More)
Quantification of mRNA expression levels using real-time reverse transcription PCR (RT-PCR) is increasingly used to validate results of DNA microarrays or GeneChips. It requires an improved method that is more robust and more suitable for high-throughput measurements. In this report, we compare a user non-influent, second derivative method with that of a(More)
Fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF23) is a bone-derived hormone involved in the regulation of phosphate and calcium metabolism. We have evaluated the levels of C-terminal FGF23 (Ct-FGF23) in 73 patients presenting heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HF-REF) and assess their potential predictive value for long-term survival through a 6 years(More)
The formalin test was evaluated to assess the analgesic activity of diflunisal in the rat. Fifty microliters of a 5% formalin solution was injected into the hindpaw of rats and two distinct nociceptive behaviors, i.e. flinching/shaking and licking/biting of the injected paw, were recorded over 120 min. The effect of factors such as age of the animal, time(More)
The role of dopamine receptor-G protein coupling in the development of striatal dopamine receptor supersensitivity was studied in rats with a 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA)-induced unilateral lesion of the nigrostriatal pathway. This coupling was assessed by the measurement of dopamine agonist-induced guanosine 5'-O-(gamma[35S]thio)triphosphate(More)
The nomifensine antidepressant activity, tolerance and rapidity of action have been studied by 95 psychiatrists in 498 patients during a 4 week open treatment. A 12 items evaluation scale allowed the estimation of the efficacy of the drug in depressed patients distributed to 4 classes of diagnosis: reactional, neurotic, endogenous and other type of(More)
