OBJECTIVES The aim was to assess the immunogenicity and the impact on disease activity of pneumococcal and influenza vaccines in SLE patients. METHODS We conducted a systematic literature review and meta-analysis of studies comparing the humoral response of either pneumococcal (serotype 23F) or influenza (AH1N1, AH3N2 and B strains) vaccines between SLE(More)
A new cysteamine-based compound, I109 (N-glycylglycyl-S acetylcysteamine trifluoroacetate) was tested on both normal tissues and tumors to evaluate its radioprotective potential. I109, which is three times less toxic than WR-2721, was injected at a dose approximately equal to half the LD50(30 days). The Protection Factor (PF = gamma ray dose ratio) after(More)
INTRODUCTION During year 2013, 5943 tests for antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCA) detection were performed in Bordeaux hospital, France. This seemed disproportionate, with regard to the low prevalence of ANCA-associated vasculitis (AAV). Our purpose was to evaluate the relevance of these requests. METHODS Requests for detection of ANCA during(More)
This study determined the radiosensitivity of the human tumor xenograft HT29 and its glutathione (GSH) and cysteine (CYS) contents after treatment with both buthionine sulfoximine (BSO) and SR-2508 or SR-2508 alone. Tumor radiosensitivity was assessed by the in vitro colony assay and thiol content was measured by high-performance liquid chromatography. The(More)
