BACKGROUND Maternal infection during pregnancy is a recognized risk factor for the occurrence of a broad spectrum of psychiatric and neurologic disorders, including schizophrenia, autism, and cerebral palsy. Prenatal exposure of rats to lipopolysaccharide (LPS) leads to impaired learning and psychotic-like behavior in mature offspring, together with an(More)
The mechanotransduction of vestibular sensory cells depends on the high endolymphatic potassium concentration ([K+]) maintained by a fine balance between K+ secretion and absorption by epithelial cells. Despite the crucial role of endolymph as an electrochemical motor for mechanotransduction, little is known about the processes that govern endolymph(More)
OBJECTIVE The rationale for blocking interleukin-6 (IL-6) in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) lies chiefly in the proinflammatory effect of this cytokine. Few studies have evaluated the consequences of anti-IL-6 receptor (IL-6R) antibody treatment on Treg cells. This study was undertaken to elucidate the mechanism of action of anti-IL-6R antibody treatment by(More)
We have previously demonstrated, in the collagen-induced arthritis model (CIA), that repetitive injections of immature bone-marrow-derived dendritic cells (iDCs) induce the expansion of a population of CD4CD49b-expressing cells, and that their adoptive transfer results in protection against CIA in a prophylactic setting. However, the in vivo mechanism(More)
Infestant larva of the Nematode Rictulariidae: Pterygodermatities affinis (Jägerskiold, 1904) are localized in Pimelia: Tachyderma hispida Forskael of Algeria. Through the infestation of a young cat, embryonated eggs are collected after 38 days of development altogether with a female parasite. The experimental cycle of this rictulariid nematode in Locusta(More)
Stammerinema soricis (Tiner, 1951) is reported fromSorex araneus L. from a new geographic locality, Sologne, France. Comparison of the ontogenesis of the cephalic structures of this species with two other acuariids of mammals,S. suffodiax Beveridge & Barker, 1975 andS. thapari (Teixeira de Freitas, 1953), shows that these three species, formerly included in(More)
