BACKGROUND Cardiomyocyte apoptosis has been found in congestive heart failure, but its clinical significance has been difficult to study. We compared the occurrence of cardiomyocyte apoptosis in explanted hearts with the progression of severe heart failure until the need for transplantation. DESIGN Using the TUNEL assay, apoptotic cardiomyocytes were(More)
Most raw poultry sold in Finland at the retail level is mixed with marinades containing oil, sugar, spices and acetic acid and packaged under modified atmosphere. Premature spoilage of marinated poultry preparations has been observed and associated with high levels of Leuconostoc spp. in meat. In this study we investigated whether marination of broiler(More)
HYPOTHESIS/OBJECTIVE Otosclerosis is a bone remodeling disorder localized to the otic capsule and associated with inflammation. In vitro, increased activity of the diastrophic dysplasia sulfate transporter (DTDST), which is implicated in bone metabolism, has been reported. Because glucocorticoids modulate the bone turnover and inhibit inflammatory(More)
OBJECTIVE Etifoxine is approved for the treatment of psychosomatic manifestations of anxiety. Several cases of acute hepatitis have been recently notified to the French pharmacovigilance centres. Our aim was to review all relevant cases of etifoxine hepatitis. METHODS All cases of liver disorders involving etifoxine and reported since November 1995 were(More)
OBJECTIVE Diastrophic dysplasia sulfate transporter (DTDST) is involved in the regulation of bone turnover, and its activity in otosclerosis has been shown to be abnormally high. Taking into account the role of estrogens in the progression of otosclerosis, the possible effect of estrogens on DTDST was investigated in otosclerotic bone cell cultures and in(More)
Mutations in the autoimmune regulator gene disrupt thymic T cell development and negative selection, leading to the recessively inherited polyendocrine autoimmune disease autoimmune polyendocrine syndrome type 1 (APS-1). The patients also have a functional defect in the FOXP3+ regulatory T cell population, but its origin is unclear. Here, we have used T(More)
