Simian Foamy Virus Transmission to Humans

About three quarters of the viral agents that have emerged recently in humans are considered to originate from other animals. These viruses have often evolved and spread into the human population through various mechanisms after the initial contact that resulted in interspecies transmission. However, knowledge of the initial stages of the emergence of viruses and associated diseases is still limited in many cases. Microbiological monitoring in populations at risk of transmissio...

Other methods have shown only minor benefits such as hypnosis or cognitive behavioral therapy. There...

Effect of Levodopa on Human Multifocal Electroretinogram

It is known that dopamine is a functional neuromodulator at several levels of the visual system. Dopamine seems to be involved in the organization of the ganglion cell and the bipolar cell receptive fields and modulation of physiological activity of photoreceptors. There is evidence for the functional significance of dopaminergic modulation of visual sensitivity in humans which confirms the hypothesis that dopamine plays an important role in retinal light adaptation as well as...

Meat-based Versus Pesco-vegetarian Diet and Colorectal Cancer

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is strongly affected by diet, with red and processed meat increasing risk. To understand the role of microbiome in this phenomenon and to identify specific microbiome/metabolomics profiles associated with CRC risk, will be studied: 1) healthy volunteers fed for 3 months with: a high-CRC risk diet (meat-based MBD), a normalized CRC risk diet (MBD plus alpha-tocopherol, MBD-T), a low-CRC risk diet (pesco-vegetarian, PVD). At the beginning and at the end of...

Study Comparing the Safety of BG9588 (Anti-CD40L Antibody) Against Standard Treatment in Kidney Transplantation

The most common problem following a kidney transplant is the development of acute or chronic rejection. Rejection is the immunologic reaction in which the body refuses to accept the transplanted organ. The body's immune system will make destructive antibodies that will attempt to attack the transplanted organ. In order to prevent organ rejection, all patients receiving an allograft (a graft transplanted between genetically non-identical individuals of the same species) must ...

The TRAIL study was conducted to examine the effects of escalating doses of an ACE inhibitor, trandolapril, on lowering blood pressure in Stage 1-2 hypertensive patients.

Visual Feedback of Tongue by Ultrasound Echography for Speech Trouble Rehabilitation

Speech is a privileged means of communication for humans: its trouble can thus prove being extremely handicapping. Standard speech therapy is limited in some cases by the lack of sensory feedback available to the patient (hearing, surgery, neural damage, etc.). The present study aims at quantify the contribution of the tongue articulatory visual feedback offered by ultrasound echography to speech trouble rehabilitation. Two complementary populations will be studied : 30 adult...

Visual Discomfort and Reading

Reading can be an uncomfortable and difficult task for some people. Symptoms include unpleasant somatic and perceptual effects, such as eye-strain, headache, and blurred text, despite normal visual acuity. This condition has been called Visual Discomfort, but little is known about the symptoms and frequency of reading problems associated with this disorder. Several studies have proposed that Visual Discomfort is caused by increased noise in the visual system due to spreading co...

Exploring Robotic-assisted Thoracic Surgery for Lung Cancer

Background Surgery for lung cancer can be performed using open (thoracotomy) or minimally invasive techniques (Video Assisted Thoracic Surgery (VATS)). Despite being associated with fewer postoperative complications (PPCs) VATS is difficult to perform and is only used by 20-44% of thoracic surgeons in the UK. Robotic-Assisted Thoracic Surgery (RATS) maybe a more attractive minimally invasive approach. To date, no studies have explored the impact of RATS on exercise capacity or ...

Regulation of Optic Nerve Head Blood Flow During Combined Changes in Intraocular Pressure and Arterial Blood Pressure

Autoregulation is the ability of a vascular bed to maintain blood flow despite changes in perfusion pressure. The existence of an effective autoregulation in the optic nerve head (ONH) circulation has been shown in animals and humans. Moderate elevation of intraocular pressure (IOP) caused only slight effect on ONH blood flow in monkeys, cats and rabbits. In humans, during an artificial IOP rise using a suction cup method the ONH blood flow maintains almost constant until IOP r...

Online Interventions for Gamblers With and Without Co-occurring Problem Drinking

Many problem gamblers are also problem drinkers,with lifetime prevalence in nationally representative samples ranging from 45% to 73%. Heavy drinking often occurs while problem gamblers are engaging in gambling activities, resulting in increased risky gambling behaviour. Further, co-occurring problem drinking negatively impacts on the treatment outcomes of problem gamblers. Thus, targeting problem drinking among problem gamblers may have the dual benefits of reducing both the p...
