BACKGROUND Numerous studies have evocated the clinical usefulness of serum AMH levels as a predictor of ovarian response and pregnancy in assisted reproductive technology cycles. Nevertheless, the analysis of the literature shows a great dispersion in serum AMH concentrations obtained with different methods from almost comparable populations. METHODS We(More)
BACKGROUND As being overweight can impair female spontaneous fertility or after assisted reproductive technology (ART) cycles, the aim of this study was to compare in vitro fertilization (IVF) outcome according to women's body mass index (BMI). METHODS Retrospective study conducted from 2006 to 2009 in the IVF unit of Nantes University Hospital, France.(More)
The ADAM17 metalloproteinase (a disintegrin and metalloprotease 17) controls epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) activation through regulated shedding of EGFR ligands. With the advent of new therapeutic options targeting EGFR signalling in colon carcinoma, it was decided to determine ADAM17 status in relation to clinico-pathological parameters and EGFR(More)
The purpose of this study is to identify colorectal serrated lesions in the inflammatory mucosa of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), to characterize their molecular status based on BRAF and KRAS mutations, mismatch-repair (MMR) deficiency and microsatellite instability (MSI), and to verify that these molecular alterations are specific to the 'serrated(More)
BACKGROUND Microscopic evaluation of mitotic figures is a routine procedure in the assessment of the histoprognostic grade of tumours. Nevertheless, their count may be fraught with difficulties. As histone H3 phosphorylation at serine 10 is closely linked to chromosomal condensation, a new monoclonal antibody directed to phosphorylated histone H3 (PPH3) was(More)
BACKGROUND Crohn's disease (CD) mainly affects young adults of reproductive age. Whereas a large amount of data is available concerning pregnancy in young CD women, no study has been conducted on their ovarian reserve status. This study aimed to investigate the potential effect of CD on ovarian reserve in young women in remission, as reflected by serum(More)
The enteric nervous system (ENS) and its major component, enteric glial cells (EGCs), have recently been identified as a major regulator of intestinal epithelial barrier functions. Indeed, EGCs inhibit intestinal epithelial cell (IEC) proliferation and increase barrier resistance and IEC adhesion via the release of EGC-derived soluble factors.(More)
Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) are characterized by tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha)-mediated epithelial barrier disruption. TNF-alpha production and the bioavailability of its receptors on the cell surface are regulated by TACE (TNF-alpha converting enzyme), a pleiotropic metalloprotease also known as ADAM17, and its specific inhibitor TIMP3. We(More)
The aim of this study was to identify human colonic resident cells able to initiate an inflammatory response in postischemic injury. Postischemic colonic injury, a condition relevant to various clinical settings, involves an inflammatory cascade in intestinal tissues through the recruitment of circulating inflammatory cells. However, there is no information(More)
We report the case of a 5-years old child referred to the pediatric clinic due to a prolonged history of recurrent otitis. Initial immunologic investigation was normal but a severe C3 complement deficiency was detected by the absence of beta 2-globulin protein fraction using serum protein capillary electrophoresis. C3 was not detected in serum and total(More)
