The cytological characteristics of broncho-alveolar fluid were studied in 94 coal workers and six subjects exposed to varied risks of silicosis. In coal worker's pneumoconiosis with the usual micronodular or nodular type, there was a significant increase in the cellularity of the peripheral airways compared to non-exposed controls, making allowances for(More)
Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) consist of an uncontrolled intestinal inflammation leading to mucosal disruption. This inflammation is accompanied by an excessive production of reactive oxygen species (ROS). Polyphenols are micronutrients with antioxidative and anti-inflammatory properties, and may play an interesting role in the prevention of intestinal(More)
BACKGROUND Inflammatory bowel diseases consist of uncontrolled intestinal inflammation leading to mucosal disruption. Polyphenols are micronutrients with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and may play an interesting role in the prevention of intestinal inflammation. Lemon verbena (Aloysia triphylla (L'Herit.) Britton, Verbenaceae) infusion is a(More)
We studied the influence of the agonal period on the concentrations of acute phase proteins in biological fluids obtained from 26 autopsy cases. We found significant differences for C-reactive protein concentrations in serum and in pericardial fluid, between short and long agonies. The other acute phase proteins studied (alpha-1 antitrypsin, alpha-2(More)
Classically more common in women, scleroderma nevertheless affects with predilection men exposed to the inhalation of silica particles. The association scleroderma-silicosis is essentially a statistical finding. It has no particular clinical, radiological nor histological distinguishing characteristics, other than the syndromic juxtaposition of the stigmata(More)
