Delayed lithium treatment positively regulates neurogenesis after radiationinduced damage to the developing brain
Gabriel Lévy
Tumors of the central nervous system are the second most frequent tumors in children. Modern therapies have increased greatly the number of cured patients. This leads to new challenges in reducing the therapy-related morbidity. Radiotherapy to the juvenile brain is known to cause debilitating cognitive alterations.
Liver magnetic resonance elastography: reproducibility, predictive factors of failure and new sequences evaluation
Mathilde Wagner
Magnetic resonance elastography (MRE) is an imaging technique which assesses the viscoelastic properties of tissues. It is based on the analysis of the tissue’s displacement secondary to a mechanical excitation. It is mainly and daily used for liver fibrosis diagnosis and staging, with excellent accuracy
Role of IL-3 and GM-CSF production by IRA B cells during sepsis
Benjamin Glenn Chousterman
Sepsis is a clinical syndrome characterized by intense and dysregulated activation of the immune system during infection. It is a major public health issue with a high prevalence and high mortality.
Bone microarchitecture in men and women with diabetes: the importance of cortical porosity
Julien Paccou
High-resolution peripheral quantitative computed tomography (HR-pQCT) captures novel aspects of bone geometry, volumetric bone mineral density and offers the ability to measure bone microarchitecture, but data relating measures obtained from this technique to diabetic status are inconsistent in women and lacking in men.
Biomarkers of Alzheimer’s disease in non-demented elderly adults
Julien Dumurgier
To investigate the relationship between Alzheimer’s disease (AD) biomarkers and cognitive change in a population of well-functioning elderly people.
