OBJECTIVE High-functioning autism (HFA) and schizophrenia (SZ) are two of the main neurodevelopmental disorders, sharing several clinical dimensions and risk factors. Their exact relationship is poorly understood, and few studies have directly compared both disorders. Our aim was thus to directly compare neuroanatomy of HFA and SZ using a multimodal MRI(More)
BACKGROUND Parkinson's disease is typically treated with oral dopamine replacement therapies; however, long-term treatment leads to motor complications and, occasionally, impulse control disorders caused by intermittent stimulation of dopamine receptors and off-target effects, respectively. We aimed to assess the safety, tolerability, and efficacy of(More)
BACKGROUND The tripeptide glutathione (L-gamma-glutamyl-cysteinyl-glycine) is essential to cell survival, and deficiency in cardiac and systemic glutathione relates to heart failure progression and cardiac remodelling in animal models. Accordingly, we investigated cardiac and blood glutathione levels in patients of different functional classes and with(More)
OBJECTIVE The association between Toxoplasma gondii seropositivity and respectively Bipolar Disorder (BD) and Schizophrenia/Schizoaffective disorder (SZ) is one of the most studied link between one pathogen and psychiatric disorders. The aim of the present study was thus to retrospectively determine if the administration of an antipsychotic and/or a mood(More)
Introduction Models of bipolar disorder (BD) assume that an altered neuro development leads to a dysfunctional corticolimbic connectivity, causing an emotional dysregulation. 1 The corti-colimbic communication largely relies on structural brain connectivity, through white matter tracts, such as the unci-nate fasciculus (linking prefrontal [orbitofrontal](More)
RATIONALE Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is often associated with age-related systemic abnormalities that adversely affect the prognosis. Whether these manifestations are linked to the lung alterations or are independent complications of smoking remains unclear. OBJECTIVES To look for aging-related systemic manifestations and telomere(More)
Although autologous bone marrow cell (BMC) therapy has emerged as a promising treatment for acute myocardial infarction (AMI), trials reported mixed results. In the BONAMI trial, active smoking reduced cardiac function recovery after reperfused AMI. Therefore, we hypothesized that variability in the functionality of BMCs retrieved from patients with(More)
BACKGROUND Childhood trauma (CT) is a major risk factor for psychiatric conditions. It is hypothesized that CT effects are mediated by the limbic system. Few multimodal neuroimaging studies allow an integrated perspective of this impact. Our goal was thus to study the effects of CT on the limbic network. METHODS We acquired multimodal MRI (T1, diffusion(More)
Tafamidis is a transthyretin (TTR) stabilizer recently approved to slow the neurologic impairment in TTR familial amyloid polyneuropathy (TTR-FAP). The pivotal studies on Tafamidis reported encouraging results on the short term, in the early onset Val30Met-TTR-FAP patients at an early stage of the neuropathy. However, the effect of the drug in the(More)
Background—This study examined the effects of chronic bradykinin infusion on hemodynamics and myocardial and endothelial functions during the development of heart failure. Methods and Results—Sixteen instrumented dogs were randomized to receive through the left atria either vehicle or bradykinin (1 ␮g/min) during ventricular pacing (250 bpm, 5 weeks).(More)
