IMGT, the international ImMunoGeneTics information system (http://www.imgt.org), was created in 1989 by Marie-Paule Lefranc, Laboratoire d'ImmunoGénétique Moléculaire LIGM (Université Montpellier 2 and CNRS) at Montpellier, France, in order to standardize and manage the complexity of immunogenetics data. The building of a unique ontology, IMGT-ONTOLOGY, has(More)
We have identified a novel family of human major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I genes. This MHC class I related gene family is defined by 10 members, among which 6 encode potentially functional glycoproteins. The 180-kb cluster containing them has been generated by serial duplication and minimal diversification of an ancestral prototype. They are(More)
IMGT, the international ImMunoGeneTics information system (http://imgt.cines.fr), was created in 1989 at Montpellier, France. IMGT is a high quality integrated knowledge resource specialized in immunoglobulins (IG), T cell receptors (TR), major histocompatibility complex (MHC) of human and other vertebrates, and related proteins of the immune system (RPI)(More)
As a growing number of complementary transcripts, susceptible to exert various regulatory functions, are being found in eukaryotes, high throughput analytical methods are needed to investigate their expression in multiple biological samples. Serial Analysis of Gene Expression (SAGE), based on the enumeration of directionally reliable short cDNA sequences(More)
A patient developed a hematoma of the pyramidal muscle as a complication of anticoagulant treatment. The lesion provoked an entrapment neuropathy due to the compression between the muscle and the iliac spine of the great sciatic, inferior gluteal and pudendal nerves. Hyperalgic paralysis of the leg and buttock was associated with bladder sphincter disorders(More)
The purpose of this work was to detect enteroviruses in feces by an acid concentration technique (ACT). Fifty-eight samples from children less than 5 years age with diagnosis of Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) were analyzed using the routine technique and ACT. Nine positive samples with the routine technique were used as controls. Nine control samples and 22(More)
Longtime discredited, practiced with reticence even today, the inferior turbinectomy represents the treatment of choice in patients with persistent chronic nasal obstruction despite medical treatment or cauterization. Between January 1989 and December 1995, 81 patients underwent an isolated bilateral inferior turbinectomy (without an associated septal or(More)
