Tropical corals live close to their upper thermal limit making them vulnerable to unusually warm summer sea temperatures. The resulting thermal stress can lead to breakdown of the coral-algal symbiosis, essential for the functioning of reefs, and cause coral bleaching. Mass coral bleaching is a modern phenomenon associated with increases in reef temperatures due to recent global warming. Widespread bleaching has typically occurred during El Niño events. We examine the historical level of stress for 100 coral reef locations with robust bleaching histories...

PURPOSE: To compare the prognosis of pregnancy associated breast cancer occurring during pregnancy (BCP) to non-pregnancy associated breast cancers (non-BCP) in young women managed at a national expert center. METHODS: Retrospective cohort study of a prospective database using propensity score matching (PSM) analysis with known prognostic factors. RESULTS: We analyzed data of 49 patients with BCP and 104 with non-BCP diagnosed between 2002 and 2017 at Tenon University Hospital (Paris, France)...

Kounis syndrome is defined as the clinical development of acute coronary syndrome caused by the activation of inflammatory cells due to an allergy, hypersensitivity, anaphylaxis, or anaphylactic reaction. Corticosteroids that are used in the treatment of many inflammatory conditions may paradoxically cause allergic reactions and even anaphylaxis. This article is a description of the case of a 52-yearold female patient who had a non-ST elevation myocardial infarction after the administration of triamcinolone that was relieved with antihistaminic treatment...

BACKGROUND: The Paris System for Reporting Urinary Cytology (TPS) was published in November 2015. It focuses on the diagnosis of high-grade urothelial carcinoma (HGUC) and provides criteria with which to define the category of atypical urothelial cells (AUC). The objective of the current study was to compare two 1-year consecutive periods before and after use of TPS. METHODS: A total of 1634 and 1814 urine cytology cases, respectively, were analyzed before and after use of TPS...

Spontaneous coronary artery dissection constitutes a rare entity which affects mostly women especially below the age of forty. Treatment of choice is a matter of discussion. It is suggested by many authors that therapeutic strategy should be individualized based to each patient's clinical and angiographic manifestations. We present the case of a young woman who underwent surgical revascularization for dissection of Left Main Stem by using both Internal Thoracic Arteries. Angiographic follow up revealed resolution of dissection, obstruction of Right Internal Thoracic Artery graft and reverse flow in Left Internal Thoracic Artery graft...

OBJECTIVE: Infections caused by dematiaceous fungi are more common in tropical and subtropical areas. We aimed to describe the clinical, microbiological and therapeutic aspects of case patients diagnosed at a University Hospital located on an Indian Ocean island. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We performed an observational retrospective study of infections caused by dematiaceous fungi diagnosed at the University Hospital of Saint-Pierre, Reunion, from 2000 to 2015. Mycological identifications were performed at the National Reference Center for Invasive Mycosis and Antifungal Agents (Paris)...

INTRODUCTION: During the last quarter of the XIX century, Paris, France, particularly the Salpêtrière Hospital was the most important centre of reference of Clinical Neurology in the world. The group based on the Salpêtrière Hospital, led by Professor Charcot, who was arguably the most celebrated neurologist in Europe. OBJECTIVE: In this historical review, we present and locate the addresses of the houses of these famous Parisian neurologists from the late XIX century...

Human lice, Pediculus humanus, are obligate blood-sucking parasites. Phylogenetically, they belong to several mitochondrial clades exhibiting some geographic differences. Currently, the body louse is the only recognized disease vector, with the head louse being proposed as an additional vector. In this article, we study the genetic diversity of head and body lice collected from Bobigny, a town located close to Paris (France), and look for louse-borne pathogens. By amplifying and sequencing the cytb gene, we confirmed the presence of clades A and B in France...

Carbapenemases are one of the major mechanisms of antimicrobial resistance, usually due to the indiscriminate use of antibiotics. The expansion of this mechanism of resistance at world level is imminent and control measures are limited. In the region of the Central Sierra of Peru - Huancayo, we report a case of carbapenemase-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae, with the purpose of discussing the problems related to this emerging mechanism of antibiotic resistance.

Extreme positive Indian Ocean Dipole (pIOD) affects weather, agriculture, ecosystems, and public health worldwide, particularly when exacerbated by an extreme El Niño. The Paris Agreement aims to limit warming below 2 °C and ideally below 1.5 °C in global mean temperature (GMT), but how extreme pIOD will respond to this target is unclear. Here we show that the frequency increases linearly as the warming proceeds, and doubles at 1.5 °C warming from the pre-industrial level (statistically significant above the 90% confidence level), underscored by a strong intermodel agreement with 11 out of 13 models producing an increase...

Epidemiological data on late noninfectious pulmonary complications (LONIPCs) following allogeneic haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) are derived exclusively from retrospective studies and conflicting. We aimed to evaluate prospectively their incidence, risk factors and outcomes.All consecutive patients scheduled to receive allogeneic HSCT between 2006 and 2008, at the university-teaching Saint Louis Hospital (Paris, France) were screened for inclusion. Eligible patients were those surviving at day 100...

There are opinions regarding that impulsivity may play a role in the pathogenesis of neuropsychiatric disorders. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between impulsivity and panic disorder (PD) in the patient group, to compare impulsivity and affective temperamental traits between patients and healthy controls and to investigate whether there is a relationship between impulsivity and affective temperamental traits. Participants comprised 70 patients with PD and 58 healthy volunteers. The Panic Agoraphobia Scale (PAS), the Barratt Impulsiveness Scale (BIS-11) and the Temperament Evaluation of Memphis, Pisa, Paris, San Diego Autoquestionnaire (TEMPS-A) were applied...

Phytopharmaceuticals play an essential role in medicine, since the need to investigate highly effective and safe drugs for the treatment of diabetes mellitus disease remains a significant challenge for modern medicine. Arbutus unedo L. root has various therapeutic properties, and has been used widely in the traditional medicine as an antidiabetic agent. The current study aimed to isolate the pharmacologically active compound from A. unedo roots using accelerated solvent extraction technology, to determine its chemical structure using different instrumental analytical methods, and also to evaluate the α-glucosidase inhibitory activity...

Cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma is one of the most common skin cancers and can lead to patient death. Early diagnosis of node metastasis is a major goal for dermatologists and oncologists. The sentinel lymph node procedure has been proposed to improve this issue but is still debated. To evaluate the efficacy and the impact of this technique on prognosis of cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma, 37 patients (Saint Louis Hospital, Paris - France) who underwent sentinel lymph node biopsy and 290 cases from the literature were analyzed...

At the 2017 10th annual International Conference on Advanced Technologies and Treatments for Diabetes (ATTD) in Paris, France, four speakers presented their perspectives on the roles of continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) and of blood glucose monitoring (BGM) in patient management within one symposium. These presentations included discussions of the differences in the accuracy of CGM and BGM, a clinical perspective on the physiological reasons behind differences in CGM and BGM values, and an overview of the impact of variations in device accuracy on patients with diabetes...
