European policies (European Framework Directive: Water 2000/60/CE, Directive 76/464/CE) impose to reduce the releases of about a hundred substances in surface water. In the last years, the AQUAPOLE has been involved in two studies related to this matter. First, on the request and with the financial support of both the French Ministry of Environment and ONEMA (“Office National de l’Eau et des Milieux Aquatiques”), INERIS (“Institut National de l’Environnement Industriel et des Risques”) drew up the guidelines of a methodology allowing fixing the local Limit Values to Emission so as to abide by the quality standards on the whole watershed. Within this context, INERIS wishes to test the use of pollutant transfer models on pilot sub-basins. The PEGASE model has been used to simulate micropollutants on two concrete use cases (1): (iii) in the Meuse sub-basin, managed by the French Water Agency Rhine-Meuse, for simulations concerning cadmium and zinc; (iv) in the Adour sub-basin, managed by the French Water Agency Adour-Garonne, for simulations applied to cadmium and copper. The choice of each substances and sub-basins was made by mutual agreement between INERIS, the concerned Water Agencies, and the AQUAPOLE. A major selection criterion for the substances and the sub-basins was the availability of data (sources and in situ measurements). For the second study, the PEGASE model has been adapted to describe the cocaine’s behaviour (using a stable metabolite of the cocaine in the environment: the benzoylecgonine (BZE)) in waste water, waste water treatment plants (WWTP) and surface water (2). The cocaine is newly described in the model as an additional micropollutant (PEGASE already treats numerous heavy metals), thanks to the implementation of new state variable equations and their specific parameterizations. Simulations of BZE have been done in the Walloon and Flemish regions, where many measurements from the COWAT project (3) were available. The first results are showing good agreement between calculated and measured values. The ability of the model to simulate the fate of studied micropollutants (cadmium, zinc, copper, and the cocaine derivatives) in surface waters should be enhanced and extended to other substances and basins. Moreover, additional data still have to be collected and measured. [less ▲]

Plus de cinquante ans après leur mise sur le marché, les sulfamidés hypoglycémiants font toujours partie du traitement de base du diabète non insulinodépendant. A côté de leurs remarquables propriétés pharmacologiques, ces produits ont, à différentes reprises, été tenus responsables d’hypoglycémies sévères survenant de manière inexpliquée chez des sujets non diabétiques. Ce type d’hypoglycémie, qualifiée de factice, est notamment fréquemment retrouvée dans le syndrome de Munchausen, trouble psychiatrique poussant le malade à mimer une pathologie. Cette hypoglycémie est associée à un hyperinsulinisme endogène simulant une pathologie endocrine très rare, l’insulinome. Nous souhaitons faire connaître aux Cliniciens l’intérêt de la recherche et du dosage sanguin des sulfamidés hypoglycémiants dans le cadre du diagnostic différentiel des hyperinsulinismes. La mise en évidence d’une hypoglycémie induite par ces médicaments constitue un élément intéressant pour orienter le diagnostic et éventuellement éviter une pancréatectomie en cas de forte suspicion d’insulinome. La méthode analytique développée au laboratoire s’appuie sur la chromatographie liquide ultra performante couplée à la spectrométrie de masse tandem (UPLC -MS -MS ). Par cette technique, on peut mettre en évidence dans le sang une dizaine de sulfonylurées et le répaglinide. Elle constituera à l’avenir une méthode de choix face à toute suspicion de mésusage des sulfonylurées. [less ▲]

Breast cancer is the most frequent neoplastic disease in women representing 50,000 new cases each year in France. The well-established risk factors, as those related to the reproductive history, cannot account for all cases of breast cancer. Other environmental or lifestyle factors need to be explored in depth. Persistent organochlorine compounds (OCs) have attracted attention because of their endocrine disrupting properties that make them possible risk factors for breast cancer, but most epidemiological studies did not report an association between OC concentrations in blood or adipose tissue and breast cancer risk. In these studies, OC levels were measured in biological samples obtained at the time of cancer diagnosis or only a few years before. In this paper, we review the studies on dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT) and polychlorobiphenyl (PCB) exposures in relation to breast cancer. We discuss the relevance of OC biological measurements as lifelong exposure indicators, and we describe a new method for assessing exposure to OCs in epiderniological studies. Most studies were carried out recently and reported OC concentrations that were substantially lower than those reported during the 1960s and 1970s. We make the assumption that these OC levels were not reliable indicators, as they were not measured during etiologically relevant periods in a woman's lifetime, i.e. during the prenatal period, the puberty or the period before a first full-term pregnancy, which are regarded as key periods of vulnerability of mammary gland cells to carcinogens. This may have resulted in non differential exposure misclassification and hence in the absence of an observed association between OC levels and breast cancer in most epidemiological studies. Physiologically-based pharmacokinetic (PBPK) models allow estimating persistent organic pollutant lifetime toxicokinetics profiles retrospec- tively in women, by taking into account individual differences in metabolism and key events that affect OC kinetics such as lactation and weight variations. PBPK models will be applied to the participants of a large French population-based case-control study including 1080 cases and 1055 controls. Exposure misclassification could have prevented from observing an association between exposure to OCs and breast cancer risk. PBPK models could be used as a novel way of assessing exposure to OCs and to investigate the impact of internal exposure at different time windows on breast cancer incidence. [less ▲]

GC is commonly used for the analysis of cannabis samples, e.g. in forensic chemistry. However, as this method is based on heating of the sample, acidic forms of cannabinoids are decarboxylated into their neutral counterparts. Conversely, HPLC permits the determination of the original composition of plant cannabinoids by direct analysis. Several HPLC methods have been described in the literature, but most of them failed to separate efficiently all the cannabinoids or were not validated according to general guidelines. By use of an innovative methodology for modelling chromatographic responses, a simple and accurate HPLC/DAD method was developed for the quantification of major neutral and acidic cannabinoids present in cannabis plant material: Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), THC-acid (THCA), cannabidiol (CBD), CBD-acid (CBDA), cannabigerol (CBG), CBG-acid (CBGA) and cannabinol (CBN). Δ8-tetrahydrocannabinol (∆8-THC) was determined qualitatively. Following the practice of design of experiments, predictive multilinear models were developed and used in order to find optimal chromatographic analytical conditions. The method was validated following an approach using accuracy profiles based on β-expectation tolerance intervals for the total error measurement, and assessing the measurements uncertainty. This analytical method can be used for diverse applications, e.g. plant phenotype determination, evaluation of psychoactive potency and control of material quality. [less ▲]
