  1. Deleterious effects of indomethacin in the mid-gestation human intestine.

    Genomics 101(3):171 (2013) PMID 23261704

    We have investigated the direct impact of INDO on the human mid-gestation intestinal transcriptome using serum-free organ culture. After determining the optimal dose of 1μM of INDO (90% inhibition of intestinal prostaglandin E2 production and range of circulating levels in treated preterm babies), g...
  2. Malnutrition in hospitalized children: prevalence, impact, and management.

    Canadian Journal of Dietetic Practice and Research 75(1):29 (2014) PMID 24606957

    Malnutrition in hospitalized children has been reported since the late 1970s. The prevalence of acute and chronic malnutrition was examined in hospitalized patients in a general pediatric unit, and the impact and management of malnutrition were assessed. The nutritional risk score (NRS) and nutritio...
  3. M1706 Anti-Inflammatory Effects of Epidermal Growth Factor in the Immature Human Intestine

    Gastroenterology 138(5):S (2010)

  4. Gene-expression profile analysis in the mid-gestation human intestine discloses greater functional immaturity of the colon as compared with ...

    Journal of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutri... 52(6):670 (2011) PMID 21478755

    : Functional clustering analysis of the differentially expressed genes revealed important functional differences between the 2 segments and a relative immaturity of the colon, suggesting that already at mid-gestation, the 2 intestinal segments should be considered as 2 distinct organs....
  5. Luminal fermentation and colonocyte metabolism in a rat model of enteral nutrition.

    Digestive Diseases and Sciences 48(7):1339 (2003) PMID 12870792

    Large intestinal fermentation and nutrient metabolism in colonocytes were investigated in a rat model of enteral feeding. Male Wistar rats (240-280 g) were submitted to 7 or 14 days of treatment: intragastric feeding (elemental formula) versus oral feeding (isocaloric and isonitrogenous diet, contai...
  6. Burden of rotavirus disease: A population-based study in Eastern Townships, Quebec.

    The Canadian journal of infectious diseases = J... 24(3):138 (2013) PMID 24421824 PMCID PMC3852450

    Since July 2010, the National Advisory Committee on Immunization of Canada has recommended rotavirus vaccination for all healthy infants. However, before implementing this vaccine in routine health programs, Canadian provinces need to establish current epidemiological data on rotavirus-associated ac...
  7. Hypersensitivity reaction to parenteral nutrition in an intrauterine growth-restricted newborn: a case report.

    Journal of Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition 35(3):402 (2011) PMID 21383320

    Hypersensitivity reaction to parenteral nutrition (PN) in infants is a rare condition, especially in the neonatal period. The authors report the case of a neonate with intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) who presented symptoms of anaphylaxis while receiving standard PN. Given the very common pract...
