We developed and characterized a mouse model of primary ocular blast injury. The device consists of: a pressurized air tank attached to a regulated paintball gun with a machined barrel; a chamber that protects the mouse from direct injury and recoil, while exposing the eye; and a secure platform that enables fine, controlled movement of the chamber in(More)
Recent improve in the understanding of the natural progression of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) and in the knowledge of treatments pregnancy related morbidity in addition with progression in mean age of first pregnancy brings out the need to rethink CIN management. Efficient tools are therefore needed to optimize therapeutic indications and(More)
BACKGROUND Involvement of the vaginal mucosa in pemphigus vulgaris is a rare occurrence. Here we report an original case that resulted in discovery of intra-epithelial neoplasia at the same site. PATIENTS AND METHODS A 63 year-old woman was followed for 18 years for pemphigus vulgaris treated with prednisone, initially in combination with azathioprine. An(More)
Mild traumatic brain injury (TBI) from focal head impact is the most common form of TBI in humans. Animal models, however, typically use direct impact to the exposed dura or skull, or blast to the entire head. We present a detailed characterization of a novel overpressure blast system to create focal closed-head mild TBI in mice. A high-pressure air pulse(More)
BACKGROUND Dust accumulation on surfaces of critical instruments has been a major concern during lunar and Mars missions. Operation of instruments such as solar panels, chromatic calibration targets, as well as Extra Vehicular Activity (EVA) suits has been severely compromised in the past as a result of dust accumulation and adhesion. Wind storms with wind(More)
117 deliveries in which fetal heart slowing was accompanied by residual bradycardia where at least one measure of the fetal pH was undertaken (212 measures were carried out in the whole series) allowed the authors to analyse the maximum and residual amplitudes, the regular or irregular morphology. The frequency of the slowing and its relationship to uterine(More)
OBJECTIVES Analysis of the trials which compare the virologic testing (HPV testing) and the cytology in the cervical screening. MATERIAL AND METHODS The MedLine database was consulted using the Keywords: "cervical screening", "pap smear", "liquid based cytology", "HPV testing", "adults", "adolescents", "cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN)", "uterine(More)
