Les cétacés occupent le sommet des réseaux trophiques marins. Cette position, combinée à leur longue durée de vie et leur statut d’homéotherme favorise une accumulation de polluants dans leurs tissus (Bouquegneau et al., 1996). Ces animaux s’avèreraient donc d’excellents bioindicateurs potentiels, reflétant la contamination de leur environnement. Dans le cadre de cette étude, les niveaux de mercure total, de sélénium, de cadmium, de zinc, de nickel, de chrome, de plomb, de cuivre et de fer ont été évalués dans différents tissus prélevés sur des dauphins bleus et blancs (Stenella coeruleoalba) et des dauphins communs (Delphinus delphis) provenant du Golfe de Gascogne. Les influences combinées de l’âge, du sexe et du statut reproducteur ont été analysées. Les résultats obtenus lors de nos différentes analyses ont été également confrontés à ceux de la littérature afin de réaliser une comparaison avec d’autres sites. [less ▲]

Cytokines are known to play a role in T-cell lymphopoiesis as potent growth or differentiation factors, but many experiments focusing on their role in the thymus have been conducted only in vitro. We have thus used frozen sections obtained from fetal thymuses of normal C57BL 6 mice to investigate by immunohistochemistry the presence of interleukin-1 beta (I4-1 beta), IL-2. IL-4. IL-6. interferon-7 (IFN-7) and tumour necrosis facor-alpha (TNF-alpha). The results reveal that apart from IL-2, which was not detected, all these cytokines display a time-dependent expression pattern in the normal fetal thymus. First, production of IL-4, IL-6 and TNF-alpha is detected around days 13 14; this is followed by a second wave on days 16 17, with a production of IL-1 beta, IL-4 and IL-6, and finally, just before birth (day 19), by a third wave of IL-1 beta, IL-4, IL-6, IFN-7 and TNF-alpha production. This supports the hypothesis that cytokines play a rote in T-cell lymphopoiesis. [less ▲]

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.
