Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) is a rare and severe syndrome usually associated with a cytotoxicity deficiency, which leads to an excess of immune response driven by activated macrophages and cytotoxic T cells. In children, HLH can be genetic, as part of a familial lymphohistiocytosis, or secondary: the most frequent causes are systemic-onset juvenile idiopathic arthritis, hematological malignancies, and severe infections, especially with Ebstein-Barr virus or leishmaniosis. We report on the case of a 3-year-old girl with no past medical history, who presented inaugural Pseudomonas aeruginosa maxillary osteitis, with secondary HLH...

BACKGROUND: The alarming progression of pediatric obesity is associated with the development of sleep-disordered breathing (SDB), and both exhibit similar adverse cardiometabolic health outcomes. Physical activity level (PAL) may counteract sleep and metabolic disturbances. The present study investigates i) the association between the metabolic syndrome in childhood obesity and SDB, ii) the impact of SDB severity on cardiometabolic risk scores and PAL in children with obesity. METHODS: Maturation status (Tanner stages), anthropometric (height, weight, body mass index, waist circumference, body adiposity index) and cardiometabolic characteristics (systolic and diastolic blood pressure, lipid and glycemic profiles) were assessed in 83 obese children (mean±SD, age: 10...

In resource-limited settings, the scarcity of skilled personnel and adequate laboratory facilities makes the differential diagnosis of fevers complex [1-5]. Febrile illnesses are diagnosed clinically in most rural centers, and both Rapid Diagnostic Tests (RDTs) and clinical algorithms can be valuable aids to health workers and facilitate therapeutic decisions [6,7]. The persistent fever syndrome targeted by NIDIAG is defined as presence of fever for at least one week. The NIDIAG clinical research consortium focused on potentially severe and treatable infections and therefore targeted the following conditions as differential diagnosis of persistent fever: visceral leishmaniasis (VL), human African trypanosomiasis (HAT), enteric (typhoid and paratyphoid) fever, brucellosis, melioidosis, leptospirosis, malaria, tuberculosis, amoebic liver abscess, relapsing fever, HIV/AIDS, rickettsiosis, and other infectious diseases (e...

Immobilization, bed rest, or sedentary lifestyle, are known to induce a profound impairment in sensorimotor performance. These alterations are due to a combination of peripheral and central factors. Previous data conducted on a rat model of disuse (hindlimb unloading, HU) have shown a profound reorganization of motor cortex and an impairment of motor performance. Recently, our interest was turned towards the role of insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) in cerebral plasticity since this growth factor is considered as the mediator of beneficial effects of exercise on the central nervous system, and its cortical level is decreased after a 14-day period of HU...

Consistent and accurate quantification of proteins by mass spectrometry (MS)-based proteomics depends on the performance of instruments, acquisition methods and data analysis software. In collaboration with the software developers, we evaluated OpenSWATH, SWATH 2.0, Skyline, Spectronaut and DIA-Umpire, five of the most widely used software methods for processing data from sequential window acquisition of all theoretical fragment-ion spectra (SWATH)-MS, which uses data-independent acquisition (DIA) for label-free protein quantification...

Sensory processing in the lower auditory pathway is generally considered to be rigid and thus less subject to modulation than central processing. However, in addition to the powerful bottom-up excitation by auditory nerve fibers, the ventral cochlear nucleus also receives efferent cholinergic innervation from both auditory and nonauditory top-down sources. We thus tested the influence of cholinergic modulation on highly precise time-coding neurons in the cochlear nucleus of the Mongolian gerbil. By combining electrophysiological recordings with pharmacological application in vitro and in vivo, we found 55-72% of spherical bushy cells (SBCs) to be depolarized by carbachol on two time scales, ranging from hundreds of milliseconds to minutes...

In this article, four methods to calculate charge transfer integrals in the context of bridge-mediated electron transfer are tested. These methods are based on density functional theory (DFT). We consider two perturbative Green's function effective Hamiltonian methods (first, at the DFT level of theory, using localized molecular orbitals; second, applying a tight-binding DFT approach, using fragment orbitals) and two constrained DFT implementations with either plane-wave or local basis sets. To assess the performance of the methods for through-bond (TB)-dominated or through-space (TS)-dominated transfer, different sets of molecules are considered...

INTRODUCTION: Complete blood counts (CBC) performed for infected children admitted for fever mostly disclose leukocytosis. Yet, the recently developed XN-10(®) provides novel CBC parameters which could be useful to ascertain infection and discriminate between bacterial and viral etiologies. These were the main objectives of the study presented here. METHODS: Blood samples from 90 children, 1 month to 5 years old, admitted to an emergency unit for fever benefited from a CBC, C-reactive protein, and procalcitonin assays...

INTRODUCTION: In myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN), aspirin reduces the thrombotic risk. Nevertheless, aspirin resistance may be due to excessive platelet production ("turnover" resistance). Aspirin resistance can also result from a lack of effect of aspirin; this second component is called "intrinsic resistance". Two biological tests are considered reference methods for the assessment of aspirin resistance: TXB2 assay and Light Transmittance Aggregometry (LTA) with arachidonic acid...

Understanding how land-use changes affect different facets of plant biodiversity in seminatural European grasslands is of particular importance for biodiversity conservation. As conclusions of previous experimental or synchronic observational studies did not converge toward a general agreement, assessing the recent trends in vegetation change in various grassland systems using a diachronic approach is needed. In this resurvey study, we investigated the recent changes in grassland vegetation of the French Jura Mountains, a region with a long tradition of pastoralism...

Proteins constitute a key class of molecular components that perform essential biochemical reactions in living cells. Whether the aim is to extensively characterize a given protein or to perform high-throughput qualitative and quantitative analysis of the proteome content of a sample, liquid chromatography coupled to tandem mass spectrometry has become the technology of choice. In this review, we summarize the current state of mass spectrometry applied to bottom-up proteomics, the approach that focuses on analyzing peptides obtained from proteolytic digestion of proteins...

In vitro studies about biomaterials biological properties are essential screening tests. Yet cell cultures encounter difficulties related to cell retention on material surface or to the observation of both faces of permeable materials. The objective of the present study was to develop a reliable in vitro method to study cell behavior on rigid and flexible/permeable biomaterials elaborating two specific insert-based systems (IBS-R and IBS-F respectively). IBS-R was designed as a specific cylindrical polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) system to evaluate attachment, proliferation and morphology of human gingival fibroblasts (HGFs) on grade V titanium and lithium disilicate glass-ceramic discs characteristics of dental prostheses...

Nacre is able to induce bone-forming cells mineralization, and gains widely interest in bone regeneration. While, the osteoinductive compounds are not yet identified. ESM (Ethanol Soluble Matrix), a nacre extract from powder of Pinctada margaritifera pearl oyster shell, has been firstly proven having the capacity to induce mineralization and to restore mineralization defect in vitro. It is suitable to treat ESM as a source of osteoinductive compounds. Herein, we develop a new method for separating and purifying nacre extracts by an ionic approach...

Hepatitis C is a severe disease, which often evolves into chronicity and for which there is no vaccine available. Therefore its screening is essential, especially among drug users who are the main reservoir of the hepatitis C virus (HCV). Current guidelines for screening are based on the detection of total anti-HCV antibodies (Ab) by means of third generation EIA. This test is performed in a laboratory from a venous sample. Alternative methods have been recently developed, including point-of-care tests (POCT) that offer many advantages...
