We report on a patient having McCune-Albright syndrome (MAS) associated with non-autoimmune hyperthyroidism associated with thyrotoxic crisis. Polyostotic fibrous dysplasia developed at age 8, and café-au-lait pigmentation was noted on the skin. At age 18, he developed hyperthyroidism with multiple adenomatous changes. The hyperthyroidism had been(More)
OBJECTIVES We compared the reactivity of IgG1 and IgG2a antibodies in mouse sera after infection with virulent RH and low-virulent S273 and Beverley strains of Toxoplasma gondii against RH SAG1 recombinant p30 (rp30) and synthetic SAG1 peptides. METHODS Infected mouse serum samples were collected 9 days after infection, and the level of total IgG, IgG1(More)
Seventeen monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) were previously established against the heavy chain (Hc) of botulinum type E neurotoxin in BALB/c mice immunized with the type E toxoid. Five MAbs (LE15-5, LE34-6, EK19-7, EK21-4, and AE27-9) showed toxin-neutralizing activity in mice. Two of the five MAbs, EK19-7 and EK21-4, recognized the regions located at amino(More)
Drinking water, cowpea and maize grains were sampled in some potentially exposed agro-ecological areas in Togo and analysed for their contamination by some common organochlorine pesticides. A total of 19 organochlorine pesticides were investigated in ten subsamples of maize, ten subsamples of cowpea and nine subsamples of drinking water. Analytical methods(More)
In the decentralized-TDMA (D-TDMA) protocol the terminals select a free slot based on the frame information (FI) included in each packet to be transmitted. However, the FI constitutes a large portion of the packet which seriously compromised the throughput of the D-TDMA. We are proposing a technique for increasing the throughput by reducing the length of(More)
Wireless transmissions with high data rate and high reliability are very demanding. We have focused on an Unequal Error Protection (UEP) using different modulation schemes. The UEP in our study means the multiplexed transmission where multiple modulations are transmitted simultaneously. The receive data bits with guaranteed reliability at each E<sub>b</sub>(More)
