HBV immunization is highly recommended in people infected with HIV. However, the classical schedule used in the general population has been shown to be insufficient in people living with HIV. This review summarizes the main studies dealing with HBV vaccination in people living with HIV, depending on their baseline status (in particular, never vaccinated, already vaccinated, or with an isolated anti-HBc serological profile). It shows that reinforced 40µg intramuscular HBV vaccination schedules are now frequently recommended, either initially in people never vaccinated, or in the lack of an anamnestic response in other situations. Adjuvants cannot be currently recommended. Anti-HBs titers have to be checked 1 to 2 months following the last vaccine dose, and annually thereafter a booster is necessary if antiHBs titers decrease below 10 mIU/mL. In patients with a CD4 cell count <200/µL, guidelines recommend starting the vaccination regimen as soon as possible after HAART has been started. © 2017 Taylor & Francis.

The increasing prevalence of obesity in the actual western dietary context is questioning the notion of energy-balance regulated by the physiological control of dietary intake. The rules of spontaneous regulation of the fat mass but also of the fat-free mass being recalled; we consider the possible causes of the failure of this regulation. The extraordinary increase of the palatability and of the variety of food products could explain the limitation of that regulation. Some therapeutical means are given in order to re-Adjust the level of the weight-control.

The present invention relates to a pharmaceutical composition including Lipiodol and a molecule with anti-tumour activity and secondarily a hydroxyethyl starch. The present invention also relates to the use of the compositions according to the invention for treating cancer. According to one embodiment, the pharmaceutical composition according to the invention has between 0.004% and 0.2% by weight of idarubicin, between 0.38% and 2.25% by weight of hydroxyethyl starch and secondarily between 60% and 68% by weight of Lipiodol, and water for injection (or even physiological saline) in a quantity sufficient (q.s.) for 100%.

Bleeding from stress-related mucosal disease in critically ill patients remains an important clinical management issue. Although only a small proportion (1-6%) of patients admitted to an intensive care unit (ICU) will bleed, a substantial proportion exhibit clinical risk factors (mechanical ventilation for >48 h and a coagulopathy) that predict an increased risk of bleeding. Furthermore, upper gastrointestinal mucosal lesions can be found in 75-100% of patients in ICUs. Although uncommon, stress-ulcer bleeding is a severe complication with an estimated mortality of 40-50%, mostly from decompensating an underlying condition or multiorgan failure. Although the vast majority of patients in ICUs receive stress-ulcer prophylaxis, largely with PPIs, some controversy surrounds their efficacy and safety. Indeed, no single trial has shown that stress-ulcer prophylaxis reduces mortality. Some reports suggest that the use of PPIs increases the risk of nosocomial infections. However, several meta-analyses and cost-effectiveness studies suggest PPIs to be more clinically effective and cost-effective than histamine-2 receptor antagonists, without considerable increases in nosocomial pneumonia. To help clinicians use the most appropriate strategy for treatment of patients in the ICU, this Review presents the latest information on all aspects of stress-related mucosal disease. © 2015 Macmillan Publishers Limited.

Background: Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) accounts for 10-40% of hospital-acquired pneumonia, and even more in intensive care units. The current guidelines for the treatment of MRSA nosocomial pneumonia include vancomycin and linezolid. The authors of 2 prospective randomized trials comparing vancomycin and linezolid in nosocomial pneumonia had concluded to the non-inferiority of linezolid. A slight superiority of linezolid was observed in the MRSA pneumonia subgroup, in terms of clinical success and survival, but no definite conclusion could be drawn. Methods: A prospective randomized study was made to compare a fixed linezolid dose to dose-optimized vancomycin for the treatment of bacteriologically proven MRSA nosocomial pneumonia (ZEPHyR Study). Results: Among the 165 patients treated by linezolid (57.6%) in the PP population, 95 were clinically cured at the end of the study, compared to 81 of the 174 patients treated by vancomycin (46.6%) (IC 95% of the difference 0.5%-21.6%, P= 0.042). Nephrotoxicity in the mITT population reached 8.4% in the linezolid group compared to 18.2% in the vancomycin group. Conclusion: LNZ was superior to vancomycin for the treatment of MRSA nosocomial pneumonia. © 2013 Elsevier Masson SAS.

Aim. The main objective of the study was to describe changes in the blood pressure (BP) values of a cohort of elderly subjects as a result of substituting NaCl with NaCl+Chitosan 3% (Symbiosal®) in their diet (salt used during food preparation and added table salt). Methods. An observational study was conducted in a rehabilitation centre for elderly where all cooked foods are produced by the local kitchen and all the salt NaCl traditionally used was replaced by Symbiosal®. All patients, hypertensive or not, were followed at inclusion and then every month to monitor their BP parameters over three months. Results. In the total population of seventy-seven patients, SBP (mmHg) decreases from 130±17 at inclusion to 123±10 at 3 months (-7.8±8.5) (P<0.0001). In sixteen persons, whose hypertension was not under control at inclusion, it decreases from 156±18 to 136±12 after 3 months (-19.6±7.3) (P<0.0001) and among them 68.5% were controlled. In the subject with limit hypertension (between 130-140) it decreases from 135.7±3.1 to 123.2±4.9 (-12.5±4.6) (P<0.0001). Conclusion. NaCl + chitosan 3% seems to reduce significantly the BP. This suggests that it could be used either in the field of a low salt diet in hypertensive patients but also in general or elderly population in addition to the recommendation of a salt reduction.

Two thirds of the patients hospitalized for an acute coronary syndrome (ACS) show disorders of glucose metabolism (diabetes, impaired fasting glucose, impaired glucose intolerance).Every patient hospitalized for an ACS whose HbA1c is equal or above 6.5% must be considered as diabetic.Each patient hospitalized for an ACS whose HbA1c is less than 6.5% should have measurement of plasma glucose fasting and after an oral glucose load between the 7th and the 28th day following the ACS in order to detect a disorder of glucose metabolism.During the hospitalization in cardiac intensive care unit, a treatment with insulin will be started when plasma glucose is. ≥. 1.80. g/L (10.0. mmol/L). In a patient with previously known diabetes, a treatment with insulin will also be started when preprandial plasma glucose is 1.40. g/L (7.8. mmol/L).Insulin treatment in cardiac intensive care unit will be performed by continuous IV infusion of insulin including bolus for meals. Insulin dosage will be determined according to the capillary glucose monitoring.After the hospitalization in cardiac intensive care unit, it is often possible to stop insulin treatment, which may be replaced by other antidiabetic treatments.The choice of the optimal antidiabetic treatment depends on the metabolic profile of the patient (insulin-resistance, insulin deficiency). This choice is not always easy and referral to an endocrinologist/diabetolgist may be needed.Because of the increased cardiovascular mortality associated with hypoglycemias, the long-term use of insulin or insulin-secretory agents (sulfonylureas, glinides) must be limited.During and in the immediate follow-up of an ACS, referral to an endocrinologist/diabetologist is recommended in case of diagnosis of diabetes, when HbA1c. ≥. 8%, when long-term treatment with insulin has been initiated and in case of frequent or severe hypoglycemias. © 2016 Elsevier Masson SAS.
