With the use of Weber's modified trichrome and Uvitex 2B techniques, spores of microsporidia were detected in the stools of four travelers presenting clinically with chronic diarrhea. The general health of these patients was not impaired, and human immunodeficiency virus screening was negative. Immune evaluation, including the study of lymphocytic(More)
UNLABELLED Recommendations vary on the best combination of tests to use for the diagnosis of subclinical congenital toxoplasmosis at birth. The diagnostic accuracy of IgM and IgA tests was assessed in the context of routine clinical practice on 233 newborns with congenital toxoplasmosis and 661 healthy controls. IgM/IgA sensibility and specificity were(More)
In order to investigate the accuracy and practicability of the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in the antenatal diagnosis of congenital toxoplasmosis, a collaborative study involving 15 European laboratories was performed under the auspices of the Biomed 2 Programme of the European Community. Each team received 12 aliquots (four negative, eight positive) of(More)
In this work we have derived an eecient and eeective adaptive mesh reenement strategy for a stabilised implementation of the lowest order P 1 { P 0 mixed nite element method for steady incompressible Stokes ow. Our analysis indicates that the accuracy of simple a-posteriori error estimators is independent of the stabilisation parameter, and that if the(More)
Diarrhea due to infection with Microsporidium (M) or Cryptosporidium (C) raises significant therapeutic challenges in HIV-infected patients. The usefulness of protease inhibitor therapy was evaluated in 20 HIV-positive patients with positive tests for M and/or C. There were 17 men and three women with a mean age of 42.5 years (range, 26-64 years). Two(More)
BACKGROUND Because of routine screening and treatment of pregnant women for Toxoplasma infection in France, most neonates born to mothers who seroconverted during pregnancy are either not infected or asymptomatic. Early diagnosis relies mainly on radiologic, ophthalmologic and biologic tests. Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) cytochemical evaluation is one of(More)
