BACKGROUND Homocysteine is a sulphur-containing amino acid derived from methionine. Hyperhomocysteinaemia is now recognised as an independent risk factor for occlusive arterial disease and thrombotic venous disease. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of hyperhomocysteinemia in patients with leg ulcers. PATIENTS AND METHODS We(More)
The ototoxic effects of RU 25434, a new semi-synthetic aminoglycoside antibiotic, were compared to those of amikacin and neomycin. Experiments were performed in adult and new-born guinea-pigs, ototoxicity being assessed by Preyer's reflex response and the measurement of the cochlear microphonic potentials at the end of treatment. The well known ototoxicity(More)
More than 10 epidemiologic studies have established that a high fibrinogen level is a thrombotic risk factor. The role of fibrinogen in arterial occlusion is multiple : the atheroma plaque involvement in formation thrombus, erythrocyte aggregation, whole blood and plasma viscosity. Fibrinogen level is high during inflammation and increases with ageing and(More)
