During the last decade, research in exercising horses provided growing evidence that the respiratory system may be a limiting factor for maximal performance, even in healthy animals. Therefore, any pulmonary dysfunction, even subclinical or moderate, may significantly impair the aerobic metabolism and consequently performance of exercising horses. This paper briefly presents the main respiratory troubles of lower airway as well as the main pulmonary function tests used to diagnose these diseases. [less ▲]

The distribution of aromatase-immunoreactive cells was studied in the medial preoptic nucleus of male and female quail that were sexually mature and gonadally intact, or gonadectomized, or gonadectomized and treated with testosterone. The study first confirmed the existence of a significant difference in the number of aromatase-immunoreactive cells between males and females (males > females) and the marked effect of castration and testosterone treatment which, respectively, decrease and restore the number of these cells. An analysis of the distribution in space of this neurochemically defined cell population was also carried out. This study revealed that castration does not uniformly decrease the density of aromatase-immunoreactive cells, but local increases are observed in an area directly adjacent to the third ventricle. A number of new sex differences in the organization of the medial preoptic nucleus and its population of aromatase cells have, in addition, been identified. The density of aromatase-immunoreactive cells is not higher in males than in females throughout the nucleus, but a higher density of immunoreactive cells is present in the ventromedial part of the nucleus in females as compared to males. In addition, the cross-sectional area of the nucleus as defined by the population of aromatase-immunoreactive cells is larger in males than in females in its rostral part and its shape is more elongated in the dorso-ventral direction in females than in males. Some of these differences (e.g. higher density of ARC-ir cells in the ventromedial part of the female POM, shape of the nucleus) appear to be organizational in nature, because they are still present in birds exposed to the same endocrine conditions during adult life (e.g. gonadectomized and treated with a same dose of testosterone). This conclusion should now be tested by experiments manipulating the endocrine environment of quail embryos. The anatomical heterogeneity of the medial preoptic nucleus revealed by this study also suggests a functional heterogeneity and the specific roles of the medial and lateral parts of the nucleus should also be investigated.

We report neuropsychological and neuroimaging investigations performed in a patient suffering from presenile onset degenerative dementia and subsequent mild extrapyramidal and pyramidal signs. Early neuropsychological testing revealed frontal lobe dysfunction. Neuroanatomical pictures were not contributive. After four years of evolution, the clinical pattern was consistent with progressive supranuclear palsy. Statistical parametric mapping analysis of functional imaging revealed a highly significant metabolic impairment in the anterior cingulate gyrus, that might be a key feature of subcortico-frontal dementia in progressive supranuclear palsy.

S'il existe des signes neurologiques caractéristiques de la maladie de Parkinson, l'expérience clinique nous apprend que l'évolution individuelle des patients parkinsoniens est fort variable, et des études anatomopathologioques révèlent que le diagnostic clinique d'un syndrome parkinsonien est parfois difficile à poser. Nous revoyons dans cet article les diagnostics différentiels des syndromes parkinsoniens, et nous discutons l'utilité de la neuroimagerie fonctionnelle et du bilan neuropsychologique pour essayer de mieux comprendre la présentation clinique.

The influence of growth hormone and insulin-like growth factor I on human melanocytes is being increasingly recognized. Clinical evidence has shown that when recombinant human growth hormone (hGH) is administered to children of short stature, the growth of melanocytic naevi is boosted. This study was conducted on 56 hGH-triggered naevi and nine similar lesions excised before or after hGH therapy for hypopituitarism and Turner's syndrome. A series of 40 naevi excised from age-matched healthy children served as controls. Atypicality of naevocytes was investigated using image analysis, AgNOR counts, immunohistochemistry (HMB-45, NKI-C3, Ki-67, anti-bcl-2-oncoprotein), and DNA flow cytometry. The data associate hGH treatment with anisokaryosis and increased AgNOR and Ki-67 counts in naevocytes. The same cells also show abnormal patterns of HMB-45 immunolabelling. These indications of naevocyte activation were not suggestive of malignant transformation. hGH-triggered melanocytomas should be added to the list of atypical melanocytic naevi. The long-term evolution of these lesions remains unknown and the potential risk of malignant transformation awaits careful evaluation. [less ▲]
