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)
An extensive field study has been undertaken to quantify the aerial release of spray material through the changes in meteorology as the day progresses. An important subset of these collected data is one-second interval data of the aircraft behavior and the mechanical release systems. These unique data provide an excellent source of information on bounding(More)
Regional pneumococcal observatories in region Centre, created in 1997, participate with the others pneumococcal observatories alongside the National Reference Center for Pneumococci and the Institut de Veille Sanitaire at the monitoring of the evolution of resistance of pneumococci to antibiotics in France. Between 1997 and 2007, 2427 strains of(More)
Since the discovery of the superiority of the combination 5-fluorouracil (5FU)-folinic acid (FA) in comparison to 5FU alone in the treatment of gastrointestinal cancers, the interest of this association has been demonstrated in many other tumors. In the treatment of advanced colorectal carcinoma, FA is usually administered in 1 or 2 h infusion before 5FU.(More)
Seven hundred and ninety six strains of pneumococcus were collected in the Centre region, from 15 laboratories, between 1st April 1999 and 31st of March 2000. Data were processed, using 4th dimension software, and concerned age, file number, consultation/hospitalisation, sample type, susceptibility to oxacillin (5 micrograms), results of the E-test for(More)
The Coulter Counter Model S+II is an automatic analyzer designed to measure the routine hematological parameters and to carry out distribution curve analysis of platelets, erythrocytes and leukocytes. The leukocyte histogram analysis is used as a basis for calculation of both lymphocyte percentages and absolute counts. In this study, we compared the(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)
