15 cases of haemolytic uraemic syndrome (HUS) or bloody diarrhoea have been identified in the Gironde, southwest France. Investigations suggest the vehicle of transmission was sprouts, served at an event in Bègles on 8 June 2011. A strain of shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli O104:H4 has been isolated from five cases. This strain is genetically related… (More)
OBJECTIVES To estimate the proportion of pleural mesothelioma cases that can be attributed to asbestos exposure in France including non-occupational exposure. METHODS A population-based case-control study including 437 incident cases and 874 controls was conducted from 1998 to 2002. Occupational and non-occupational asbestos exposure was assessed… (More)
Time-domain representations of the fetal aortopulmonary circulation were carried out in lamb fetuses to study hemodynamic consequences of congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) and the effects of endothelin-receptor antagonist tezosentan (3 mg/45 min). From the isthmic aortic and left pulmonary artery (PA) flows (Q) and isthmic aortic, PA, and left auricle… (More)
cal periadventitial application up to 1.5-fold. Both sPLLs significantly increased liposome-mediated GT. Poly-L-lysine L18 was superior to LMW-L since it enabled maximal GT at a 10-fold lower concentration. Thus, sPLLs may serve as enhanc-ers for GT applications in SMCs in vitro and in vivo using local delivery.
