Prevention and treatment of chronic respiratory diseases require improvement of the horse's environment (elimination of dust and allergen sources), adaptation of training conditions and early medical action against airway disfunctions. Therapeutic management rests on the control of inlammation and correction of functinnal disorders. Amongst all available drugs, corticosteroids are the most valued for theri anti-inflammatory actions, as well as their potentializing effect on bronchodilatators. Treatment can be delivered either systematically, in case of severe disease, or locally, by aerosoltherapy. This former technique allows delivery of precise doses and limits side effects. [less ▲]

Children with biotinidase deficiency usually exhibit symptoms at several months to years of age. We describe four children who had symptoms later in childhood or during adolescence; they had motor limb weakness, spastic paresis, and eye problems, such as loss of visual acuity and scotomata, rather than the more characteristic symptoms observed in young untreated children with the disorder. These older children each have different mutations, but they are the same as those of children who have exhibited symptoms at an early age. Biotinidase deficiency should be considered in older children who suddenly experience limb weakness and/or spastic paresis and eye symptoms. [less ▲]

An in vitro model of the calf head was used to examine the ability of near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) to non-invasively determine oxygenation events within the calf head. The brains were removed from 16 calf skulls and replaced with oxygenated dilutions of calf blood that had the oxygen progressively decreased from PO2 > 110 mmHg to < 10 mmHg. Appropriate placement of the lighting source and sensor (optodes) was examined, as were the influences of skull thickness and overlying skin of the skull (including colour). The changes in haemaglobin oxygenation in the model calf head, as observed by NIRS, were highly correlated to PO2 changes in all 16 calf skulls examined (mean r2=0.91, range 0.71 to 0.99). There was a trend for optode positioning to achieve optimal NIRS signals over the middle of the frontal bone in a longitudinal axis and with optodes spaced 4 cm apart, but with the large variation between calf heads this was not shown to be significantly different from other sites tested. The presence of skin over the skull had a significant damping effect on the NIRS signal when compared with the bare skull (P<0.01) but it was not possible to detect a difference in this damping effect between black and white coloured skin. All but the two thickest skulls (13 and 14 mm frontal bone thickness) appeared to allow sufficiently strong NIRS signals of changes in haemoglobin oxygenation. This study showed that NIRS can be used for non-invasive study of oxygenation events within the cranial cavity of calves, and established some guidelines and limitations for its use in this species.

The reperfusion of a limb which has been submitted to a severe and prolonged period of ischemia may be followed by dramatic local and systemic complications. The results of several experimental studies have given insights on the biochemical and physiopathological alterations occurring in the ischemic and reperfused skeletal muscle. Therefore the technique of the controlled limb reperfusion has been developed. we present the results obtained in two patients with this technique. Two patients were admitted for a limb-threatening ischemia consecutive to embolism. After removal of the thrombi with a Fogarty's catheter and before reperfusion with the normal blood, a controlled limb reperfusion was performed by mixing the systemic blood with a crystalloid solution in order to obtain a hyperosmolar, hypocalcemic, alcalotic and substrate-enriched (aspartate and glutamate) reperfusate. This reperfusate was infused during 30 min with a roller pump into the deep and superficial femoral arteries. The delivery conditions (temperature, flow and reinjection pressure) were closely monitored. In both cases, no post-operative complication was observed and the pedal pulses were restored after the operation. Complete recovery of the motor and sensitive functions were observed and the patient were discharged at the 10th post-operative day. [less ▲]

The ultrastructure of bovine platelets was examined by transmission electron microscopy without any pretreatment (control), and after WEB 2086 (a triazolodiazepine) or ketoprofen (NSAID) pretreatment, followed by PAF infusion. The blood platelet count was also investigated. The group of calves that received WEB 2086 pretreatment before platelet-activating factor (PAF) infusion did not show a decreased number of platelets. However, in the other group, with ketoprofen pretreatment before PAF infusion, there was a rapid decrease from 1 to 3 min, while from 5 min the number of platelets recovered to the normal value. Electron microscopy revealed that pretreatment with WEB 2086 followed by PAF infusion did not alter the morphological ultrastructure of bovine platelets, except that the microtubules were briefly modified from 1 until 3 min after PAF challenge. After ketoprofen pretreatment, bovine platelets kept their regular shape, the number of dense bodies was not significantly altered, the number of mitochondria was maintained from 5 min after PAF infusion, giant platelets were not observed and the Golgi apparatus was rarely visible. Thus pretreatment with WEB 2086 and ketoprofen before PAF infusion had a protective activity on the ultrastructure of bovine platelets and, in cattle, pretreatment with WEB 2086 and ketoprofen before PAF challenge prevented the thrombocytopenia induced by PAF.

In the present study, the adapted multiple point stimulation (AMPS) method was first applied to median innervated thenar muscles in 22 amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) patients who did not received any treatment. In all patients, a motor unit number estimate (MUNE) and an average surface-recorded motor unit action potential (S-MUAP) size have been derived even if the denervation was severe; and the results were reproducible. The thenar MUNE was less than the normal lower limit for age in 17 patients, and the mean MUNE (67.1 +/- 90.6) was significantly different from that estimated in control subjects (263.3 +/- 116.8). The mean S-MUAP size in the 22 ALS patients was 352.9 +/- 328.4 microV x ms versus 94.1 +/- 30.3 microV x ms in healthy volunteers. A control AMPS was achieved in 8 patients after 2 and 6 months of a glutamate-release antagonist (riluzole) treatment. The mean loss of motor units, based on control thenar MUNEs realized after 6 months of treatment, was 53%. In conclusion, we propose AMPS as a manageable, reproducible and non-invasive procedure which permits one to quantify peripheral denervation and to appreciate the effectiveness of collateral reinnervation in ALS patients.
