When acquired during pregnancy toxoplasmosis can have devastating consequences on the fetus. As maternal infection is in the majority of cases subclinical, the diagnosis of toxoplasmosis relies on serological tests for the detection of IgG, IGM and the mesure of IgG avidity. We evaluated the performance of IDS-iSYS a new automatized instrument based on chemiluminescence for the diagnosis of the disease. Our study was based on non-selected samples received in our laboratory either for the determination of serological status or for distinguishing acute from chronic infection...

RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL

Anatomical and biomechanical studies have shown that the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) consists of two distinct bundles, the anteromedial (AM) and posterolateral. Each bundle has its specific role during the motion of the knee. ACL reconstruction techniques have focused on the restauration of the anteroposterior stability by substituting the more isometric AM bundle. Although these ligamentoplasties provide overall good results, in the last ten years double-bundle ACL reconstruction techniques have been developed, to better replicate the ligament anatomy...

CONTEXT: In order to create a full profile of seniors with disabilities it is useful to include an evaluation of their social participation. However, only few questionnaires that take this concept into account are available in French. PURPOSE; The study aimed at translating the Participation Measure for Post-Acute Care (PM-PAC) questionnaire and the Impact on Participation and Autonomy Questionnaire (IPAQ) followed by an evaluation of their test-retest reliability and their convergent validity by comparing them with the Mesure des habitudes de vie (MHAVIE) questionnaire...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: This study aims to assess the role of the introital ultrasound in the evaluation of patients with low urinary tract symptoms after sling surgery for incontinence. METHODS: From 2000 till 2007, a total of 31 patients underwent sub-urethral tape placement for stress urinary incontinence and developed thereafter lower urinary tract symptoms. The urological evaluation consisted of a detailed medical history, a urogynecologic examination, a complete urodynamic exam, a measurement of the post-void residue, and an introital ultrasound...

Large animal research, often required as a final phase before commencing clinical trials for devices, has generally been hampered by the lack of appropriate tools to compare it with either initial small animal tests or to later evaluation in humans. Setting out to tissue engineer heart valves, we were particularly struck by the limited availability of immunohistochemical markers for sheep tissue, despite sheep being the FDA-approved animal for heart valve testing. This paper, therefore, aims to compile the available knowledge and extend the marker list with antibodies cross-reacting with sheep tissue...

BACKGROUND: Occupational therapists are increasingly involved in the diagnostic process of cognitive impairment in the elderly. PURPOSE: Three tools designed to facilitate the evaluation process were examined in order to document their diagnostic qualities and the nature of the association between their results: the Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE), the Protocole d'examen cognitif de la personne âgée (PECPA-2r) and the Système de mesure de l'autonomie fonctionnelle (SMAF)...

Permanent hypertension is frequently associated with increased glomerular permeability to albumin at an early stage, indicating renal involvement and endothelial dysfunction. The definition of microalbuminuria is an urinary albumin excretion of 30-300 mg/24 hrs, confirmed on two occasions over a 3 month period. It may also be expressed in microgram/min, m/l or mg/mmol of creatinine. Radio-immunological, immunonephelometric methods and Elisa are specific and the most sensitive methods of measurement. There is a large intra-individual variability (25-60%) making it essential to repeat measurements always by the same technique...

Appropriate attention can be directed to quality of life indices in the evaluation of therapeutic interventions only if reliable, valid measurement tools with good sensitivity to change are available. The goal of this study was to validate the French version of the Arthritis Impact Measurement Scales 2 (AIMS2), called EMIR (Echelle de Mesure de l'Impact de la polyarthrite Rhumatoïde) and to compare it with the validated French version of the Nottingham Health Profile, called ISPN (Indicateur de Santé Perceptuelle de Nottingham)...
