BACKGROUND Groundwater, surface water and drinking water are contaminated by nitrates and atrazine, an herbicide. They are present as a mixture in drinking water and with their endocrine-disrupting activity, they may alter fetal growth. OBJECTIVES To study an association between drinking-water atrazine metabolites/nitrate mixture exposure and(More)
Birth weight may be influenced by environmental and socio-economic factors that could interact. The main objective of our research was to investigate whether area deprivation may modify the association between drinking water exposure to a mixture of atrazine metabolites and nitrates during the second trimester of pregnancy and prevalence of small for(More)
OBJECTIVE In small-for-gestational-age neonates, parental and fetal characteristics can be used to distinguish between constitutionally small size and growth restriction, which is associated with a higher risk of morbidity and mortality. The aim of this study was to quantify relationships of parental and fetal characteristics with fetal ultrasound(More)
AIM OF THE STUDY The objective of the survey was to describe the practices of clinical laboratories in terms of cultures in medical mycology. We have implemented this project within the members of the French Society for Medical Mycology (SFMM) to evaluate the analytical processes of the mycological examination in our laboratories. This preliminary study(More)
Bisphenol A (BPA) and nonylphenols (NP) are of major concern to public health due to their high potential for human exposure and to their demonstrated toxicity (endocrine disruptor effect). A limited number of studies have shown that BPA and NP are present in drinking water. The chlorinated derivatives that may be formed during the chlorination step in(More)
The health effects related to bisphenol A (BPA) and its exposure sources have undergone extensive investigation, but no consensus has been reached. Hitherto, the major source of human BPA exposure considered in the literature remains food-contact material. However, the chlorine present in drinking water may react with BPA to form chlorinated derivatives(More)
Bisphenol A is a widespread industrial chemical which over the past decade has demonstrated its toxicity as an endocrine disruptor. Chlorine present in drinking water may react with bisphenol A to form chlorinated derivatives, which have demonstrated a heightened level of estrogenic activity. In this work, we have comprehensively validated a method using(More)
UNLABELLED Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a major risk factor for stroke. Thromboprophylaxis with anticoagulant reduces the incidence of stroke and is warranted by the CHADS(2) recommendations when score ≥2. But such therapy remains underused particularly among elderly patients. The aim of our study was to evaluate the adequacy between prescriptions and(More)
BACKGROUND Organ donation after uncontrolled cardiac death raises complex ethical issues. We conducted a survey in a large hospital staff population, including caregivers and administrators, to determine their ethical viewpoints regarding organ donation after uncontrolled cardiac death. METHODS Multicenter observational survey using a questionnaire,(More)
RATIONALE Group B streptococcus (GBS) neonatal infection can be prevented by screening pregnant women for GBS colonization from the 34th to the 38th week of gestation, as has been recommended in France since 2001. We assessed guideline adherence among midwives and obstetricians. METHODS From 2006 to 2008, new and mandatory GBS data were added to the(More)
