    The Hypothesis of the Human iNKT/Innate CD8(+) T-Cell Axis Applied to Cancer: Evidence for a Deficiency in Chronic Myeloid Leukemia.
    Front Immunol 2016 16;7:688. Epub 2017 Jan 16.
    INSERM 1082, Poitiers, France; Service d'Immunologie et Inflammation, Poitiers, France; CHU de Poitiers, Poitiers, France; Université de Poitiers, Poitiers, France.
    We recently identified a new human subset of NK-like [KIR/NKG2A(+)] CD8(+) T cells with a marked/memory phenotype, high Eomesodermin expression, potent antigen-independent cytotoxic activity, and the capacity to generate IFN-γ rapidly after exposure to pro-inflammatory cytokines. These features support the hypothesis that this new member of the innate T cell family in humans, hereafter referred to as innate CD8(+) T cells, has a role in cancer immune surveillance analogous to invariant natural killer T (iNKT) cells. Here, we report the first quantitative and functional analysis of innate CD8(+) T cells in a physiopathological context in humans, namely chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), a well-characterized myeloproliferative disorder.

    Recent advances in biochemical and molecular diagnostics for the rapid detection of antibiotic-resistant Enterobacteriaceae: a focus on ß-lactam resistance.
    Expert Rev Mol Diagn 2017 Jan 30. Epub 2017 Jan 30.
    c Emerging Antibiotic Resistance Unit, Medical and Molecular Microbiology, Department of Medicine , University of Fribourg , Fribourg , Switzerland.
    Introduction: Drug resistance among bacteria is a scourge to patients and infectious disease and infection control specialists. The rapid detection of resistance is a challenge for clinical microbiologists who wish to prevent deleterious individual and collective consequences such as (i) delaying efficient antibiotic therapy, which worsens the survival rate of the most severely ill patients, or (ii) delaying the isolation of the carriers of multidrug-resistant bacteria and promoting outbreaks; this last consequence is of special concern, and there are an increasing number of approaches and market-based solutions in response. Areas covered: β-lactams are the cornerstone of numerous empirical and definitive antimicrobial strategies. Read More

    The IDH2 R172K mutation associated with angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma produces 2HG in T cells and impacts lymphoid development.
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 2016 Dec 12;113(52):15084-15089. Epub 2016 Dec 12.
    The Campbell Family Institute for Breast Cancer Research at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, University Health Network, Toronto, ON M5G 2C1, Canada;
    Oncogenic isocitrate dehydrogenase (IDH)1 and IDH2 mutations at three hotspot arginine residues cause an enzymatic gain of function that leads to the production and accumulation of the metabolite 2-hydroxyglutarate (2HG), which contributes to the development of a number of malignancies. In the hematopoietic system, mutations in IDH1 at arginine (R) 132 and in IDH2 at R140 and R172 are commonly observed in acute myeloid leukemia, and elevated 2HG is observed in cells and serum. However, in angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma (AITL), mutations are almost exclusively restricted to IDH2 R172, and levels of 2HG have not been comprehensively measured. Read More

    Flow cytometry minimal residual disease after allogeneic transplant for chronic lymphocytic leukemia.
    Eur J Haematol 2016 Dec 10. Epub 2016 Dec 10.
    Hématologie, Groupe Hospitalier Pitié-Salpêtrière, Paris, France.
    Objectives: This study investigates whether achieving complete remission (CR) with undetectable minimal residual disease (MRD) after allogeneic stem cell transplantation (allo-SCT) for chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) affects outcome.

    Methods: We retrospectively studied 46 patients transplanted for CLL and evaluated for post-transplant MRD by flow cytometry.

    Results: At transplant time, 43% of the patients were in CR, including one with undetectable MRD, 46% were in partial response, and 11% had refractory disease. Read More

    Methods: We conducted a French nationwide, retrospective, multicentre study including pSS patients fulfilling American-European Consensus Group criteria or enlarged American-European Consensus Group criteria, and with biopsy-proven renal involvement. Read More

    Molecular Classification of Hepatocellular Adenoma Associates With Risk Factors, Bleeding, and Malignant Transformation.
    Gastroenterology 2016 Dec 7. Epub 2016 Dec 7.
    Unité Mixte de Recherche, Génomique Fonctionnelle des Tumeurs Solides, Institut National de la Santé et de la Recherche Médicale, Paris, France. Electronic address:
    Background & Aims: Hepatocellular adenomas (HCAs) are benign liver tumors that can be assigned to molecular subtypes based on inactivating mutations in hepatocyte nuclear factor 1A, activating mutations in β-catenin, or activation of inflammatory signaling pathways. We aimed to update the classification system for HCA and associate the subtypes with disease risk factors and complications.

    Methods: We analyzed expression levels of 20 genes and sequenced exon regions of 8 genes (HNF1A, IL6ST, CTNNB1, FRK, STAT3, GNAS, JAK1, and TERT) in 607 samples of 533 HCAs from 411 patients, collected from 28 centers mainly in France from 2000 and 2014. Read More

    Ischemic myopathy revealing systemic calciphylaxis.
    Muscle Nerve 2016 Dec 9. Epub 2016 Dec 9.
    Reference Center for Neuromuscular Diseases, Hôpital Henri Mondor APHP (Assistance Publique des Hôpitaux de Paris); INSERM U955-Team 10, Université Paris Est-Créteil, Créteil, France.
    Introduction: Patients with renal failure who are being treated with dialysis frequently develop neuromuscular manifestations. Renal failure-associated calciphylaxis, also termed calcific uremic arteriolopathy (CUA), is a life-threatening condition usually observed in patients with end-stage renal disease on chronic dialysis or following renal transplantation.

    Methods: We describe a hemodialyzed patient who presented with rapidly progressive unexplained systemic vasculopathy, muscle atrophy, and proximal weakness, that unexpectedly proved to be caused by calciphylaxis. Read More

    Prevalence and prognostic impact of left-sided valve thickening in systemic light-chain amyloidosis.

    Hallucinations in schizophrenia and Parkinson's disease: an analysis of sensory modalities involved and the repercussion on patients.
    Sci Rep 2016 Dec 1;6:38152. Epub 2016 Dec 1.
    CHU Clermont-Ferrand, Psychiatry B, Clermont-Ferrand, F-63003, France.
    Hallucinations have been described in various clinical populations, but they are neither disorder nor disease specific. In schizophrenia patients, hallucinations are hallmark symptoms and auditory ones are described as the more frequent. In Parkinson's disease, the descriptions of hallucination modalities are sparse, but the hallucinations do tend to have less negative consequences. Read More

    [Mindfulness-based interventions in obsessive-compulsive disorder: Mechanisms of action and presentation of a pilot study].
    Encephale 2016 Nov 22. Epub 2016 Nov 22.
    Inserm U 1127, CNRS UMR 7225, Team Behavior, Emotion, and Basal Ganglia, institut du cerveau et de la moelle épinière (ICM), université Pierre-et-Marie-Curie (UPMC), Paris, France.
    Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a frequent and severe disease, potentially inducing a major impairment for the patient and burden for their family. Recent research in psychiatry and neuroscience have led to better comprehension of the disease's mechanisms and helped to improve its treatment. However, a large proportion of patients have refractory symptoms, including for traditional cognitive and behavioral therapy by exposure and response prevention (ERP), leading clinicians to look for new treatments.
