Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN1) is a hereditary syndrome characterized by the involvement of several endocrine glands, including the parathyroid glands, the pancreatic islet cells, the anterior pituitary gland and other neuroendocrine tissues. In order to build up a French MEN1 register, a collaborative network was developed through the 'Groupe(More)
THIS ARTICLE DISCUSSES THE NATURE and function of various political processes which affect resource allocation to libraries and explores how to analyze these processes accurately. It discusses the marketing of library “products” through supplementing traditional measures of input and output with considerations of impact and by seeking to adapt and express(More)
Together with the rare dysbetalipoproteinaemia (type III) and with combined beta- and pre-betalipoproteinaemia (type IIb), slow pre-betalipoproteinaemia (type IVb) belongs to the group of mixed hyperlipidaemias, where both blood cholesterol and triglycerides are raised. From a study of 30 patients, 10 of whom benefited from ultracentrifugal separation of(More)
Some patients are clinically euthyroid despite high thyroid hormones levels associated with detectable but not elevated serum TSH. These patients are considered as being resistant to thyroid hormones. The resistance may be severe or partial and in most cases seems to be autosomal dominant; it affects some tissues more than others, thus giving rise to a(More)
Release of thyroxine and triiodothyronine from the thyroid gland is stimulated by the pituitary hormone thyrotropin, or thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH). TSH secretion in turn is regulated by control mechanisms, which include a negative feedback effect of the thyroid hormones themselves and the actions of the hypothalamic peptide TRH and of several central(More)
The authors report a case of pituitary adenoma with positive immunospecific staining for beta-FSH and serum alpha subunit. The tumour was revealed by an amenorrhoea-galactorrhoea syndrome with hyperprolactinaemia and without increase in serum gonadotrophin values. Pregnancy occurred during bromocriptine treatment which made it possible to control an(More)
Appropriate adjustment of diet and specially reduction of the saturated fatty acids content is the cornerstone of correcting many hyperlipidemias. What we have tried in our study was first to show the evolution of the changes in the serum's fatty acids composition under a rich polyunsaturated fatty acids diet, second to find an index proving that the diet(More)
The authors present two cases of intrasellar chordoma and review these tumor's most important characters. This intrasellar localization seems to be very rare. Endocrinological disorders, when observed, leads only to insfufficiency and never to hypersecretion. Final diagnosis is established by histological studies. Their volume is important, so that the(More)
