OBJECTIVE Metabolic syndrome (MetS) is directly related to a high incidence of cardiovascular disease in the general population. The association is more doubtful among HIV-infected patients, although MetS has an elevated prevalence in this population. We explored the impact of MetS on early atherosclerosis markers.

We report the case of a 29-yr-old woman who first presented an aseptic meningitis at the beginning of a pregnancy. She was admitted one month later with headaches and vomiting. Panhypopituitarism with diabetes insipidus was diagnosed. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data suggested the existence of lymphocytic infundibulohypophysitis, with inflammation of(More)
OBJECTIVE Activated protein C (APC) resistance not related to the factor V Leiden mutation is a risk factor for venous thrombosis. Oral estrogen replacement therapy (ERT) has been reported to induce APC resistance. Little is known about the effect of transdermal estrogen. METHODS AND RESULTS We enrolled 196 postmenopausal women who were randomly allocated(More)
AIMS Epidemiological and experimental data suggest that activation of the oestrogen receptor pathway limits the incidence and the progression of diabetic nephropathy. We tested the hypothesis that raloxifene protects against increasing urinary albumin excretion in post-menopausal women with Type 2 diabetes in a randomized pilot clinical trial. METHODS We(More)
Supradiaphragmatic adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) secreting pituitary adenomas are exceptionally encountered (14 cases previously described) and raise issues concerning their nosology and management. If surgery is the treatment of choice, the nature of surgical approach (craniotomy, transsphenoidal approach) remains controversial. To illustrate this(More)
OBJECTIVE Oestrogens can modulate the action or secretion of GH. Previous studies in postmenopausal women have shown a differential effect between transdermal 17beta-oestradiol and oral ethynyl-oestradiol on GH and IGF-1 concentrations. This secondary analysis, based on a large randomized trial, aimed to estimate the effect of the route of administration of(More)
OBJECTIVE The prevalence of adult onset GH deficiency (GH-D) is poorly documented. Epidemiological data are now required to estimate the financial cost of GH treatment in adults. The aim of the present study was to estimate the prevalence of GH-D, from a cohort of 1652 adult patients with hypothalamo-pituitary diseases. DESIGN The hormonal status of all(More)
BACKGROUND With the advent of antiretroviral therapy regimens in HIV positive patients, it is crucial to consider their long-term benefits to risk ratios. The responsibility of treatment in premature atherosclerosis is not clear. Thus, the aim of this study is to evaluate the impact of exposure to reverse transcriptase inhibitors (nucleosidic and(More)
