OBJECTIVES To identify genes which are more highly expressed in the peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) of patients with spondyloarthropathy (SpA), rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and psoriatic arthritis (PsA), in comparison to normal subjects. METHODS A 588-gene microarray was used as a screening tool to select a panel of such genes from PBMC of these(More)
Amphotericin B (AMB), either alone or incorporated into small unilamellar vesicles of pure dipalmitoylphosphatidyl choline (DPPC SUV-AMB), was administered intravenously to male Sprague-Dawley rats once daily for 5 days. Either 1.5 or 3.5 mg of AMB or DPPC SUV-AMB per kg was given, since these concentrations corresponded, respectively, to the lowest(More)
The purposes of this study were to test the pharmacokinetics and renal and otologic tolerances of a once-daily regimen of netilmicin and teicoplanin administered intramuscularly, alone or in combination (4.5 and 6 mg/kg, respectively), for 7 days in 30 healthy male volunteers. Teicoplanin induced only a mild increase in enzymuria. Nephrotoxicity was(More)
OBJECTIVES To validate the use of cDNA based microarray on synovial biopsies by analysing the experimental variability due to amplification of RNA, reproducibility of the assay, heterogeneity of the tissue, and statistical analysis. METHODS Total RNA was extracted from three spondyloarthropathy (SpA) and three osteoarthritis (OA) synovial tissue biopsy(More)
HLA-B27 confers a very strong genetic predisposition to development of a reactive arthritis after infection by bacteria such as Salmonella typhimurium. This study examines the role of HLA-B27 in the initiation of the earliest host activities after exposure to Salmonella, namely activation of the immediate early genes in the epithelial cells. Our major(More)
OBJECTIVE Reactive arthritis (ReA) is postulated to be caused by a defective host defense against gram-negative bacteria. HLA-B27 could play a role in this process, but does not account for the many HLA-B27 negative patients. The objective of this study was to test the expression of 3 macrophage scavenger receptors (SRs) that are responsible for innate(More)
The effects of diclofenac, a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug, on biliary excretion of ceftriaxone were evaluated in rabbits. In a previous study, we demonstrated that diclofenac increased the extravascular diffusion and antibacterial efficacy of ceftriaxone without any effect on serum protein binding and urinary excretion of this antibiotic. We(More)
Amphotericin B (AmB) and fluconazole, administered intraperitoneally for 7 days, were compared in a rabbit model for Candida albicans endocarditis. When given early, AmB was more effective than fluconazole for reducing CFU counts in vegetations (P < 0.01) and kidneys. Forty-eight hours after the last dose, AmB was still detected in all vegetations whereas(More)
Aminoglycoside nephrotoxicity remains a common clinical problem and is the major cause of acute toxic renal failure in hospitalized patients. In recent studies, calcium channel blockers gave controversial results in the prevention of acute ischemic or toxic renal failure. The aims of the study were (i) to describe a rabbit model of mild renal failure (50%(More)
To investigate the protective effect of liposomes on acute amphotericin B (AMB) renal toxicity, we compared in rabbits the acute toxicity of 4 mg/kg of free-AMB and 4 or 10 mg/kg of liposomal AMB (L-AMB) during 90 min after antibiotic infusion. Free-AMB exhibited immediate nephrotoxicity with a 44% decrease of the glomerular filtration rate and alteration(More)
