The cellular prion protein (PrPc) is a glycolipid-anchored cell surface protein that usually exhibits three glycosylation states. Its post-translationally modified isoform, PrPsc, is involved in the pathogenesis of various transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs). In bovine species, BSE infectivity appears to be restricted to the central nervous system; few or no detectable infectivity is found in lymphoid tissues in contrast to scrapie or variant CJD. Since expression of PrPc is a prerequisite for prion replication, we have investigated PrPc expression by bovine immune cells. Lymphocytes from blood and five different lymph organs were isolated from the same animal to assess intra- and interindividual variability of PrPc expression, considering six individuals. As shown by flow cytometry, this expression is absent or weak on granulocytes but is measurable on monocytes, B and T cells from blood and lymph organs. The activation of the bovine cells produces an upregulation of PrPc. The results of our in vitro study of PrPc biosynthesis are consistent with previous studies in other species. Interestingly, western blotting experiments showed only one form of the protein, the diglycosylated band. We propose that the glycosylation state could explain the lack of infectivity of the bovine immune cells. [less ▲]

As part of their plans to diversify and globalize their foreign relations, the EU and MERCOSUR have been working to establish closer links. They have a project to create an interregional Association based on political dialogue, cooperation and trade issues. To understand the evolution of this interregional relationship, it is also important to take into account the USAs’ project, which seeks to create a hemispheric market for 2005 and in which MERCOSUR is participating. There is competition between Europe and the USA in the Southern Cone. While the EU has often provided support for institution building in MERCOSUR, the latter has frequently been destabilized by US regionalist strategy. The USA has often taken advantage of its special relationship with Argentina. However, the open crises that Argentina has faced since December 2001, and the US attitude towards the crises, appear to have affected the Buenos Aires foreign policy alignment with Washington. What geopolitical consequences could this have for the area? And what is the US position on this development? Has the EU taken advantage of the situation to reinforce its interregional partnership with MERCOSUR and to counteract US influence in the region? [less ▲]

We report the case of a 54 year old man presenting atypical chest pain. The echocardiogram showed a dilatation of the coronary sinus. Subsequently the angiographic evaluation with cardiac catheterization demonstrated a coronary artery fistula between the circumflex artery and the coronary sinus and between a megaanevrysmal right coronary artery and the coronary sinus. No significant left to right shunt was discovered, however. [less ▲]

Background: Th2 cytokine production from airway cells is thought to govern the eosinophilic airways in ammation in allergic asthma. Induced sputum has become a widely used technique to assess airways in ammation. Methods: By applying the technique of induced sputum to collect airways cells, we have assessed the spontaneous production of a set of cytokines, including interleukin-4, 6, 10, interferon-gamma and tumour necrosis factor-alpha 6 h after a bronchial allergenic hallenge with Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus (Dpt) in 12 sensitized asthmatics and compared the results obtained after inhalation of saline as control. A group of eight healthy non-allergic subjects was enrolled to control for any non-specific effect of Dpt. Cytokines were measured by a dynamic immunoassay during a 24-h sputum cell culture. Results: Allergen challenge in sensitized asthmatics caused an acute and a late bronchospasm together with a rise in sputum eosinophil counts. Afterwards allergen sputum cells from allergic asthmatics displayed a rise in their production of IL-4 (P < 0.01), IL-6 (P < 0.05) and IL- 10 (P < 0.05) when compared to saline. By this time sputum generation of IL- 4 in atopic asthmatics was greater than in healthy subjects (P < 0.001). Furthermore, in allergic asthmatics there was a strong correlation between the rise in interleukin-4 production from sputum cells and the rise in sputum eosinophils (r = 0.87, P < 0.001). Conclusions: Sputum cell culture is a useful model to assess cytokine production in allergic asthmatics who show a marked up-regulation of Th2 cytokines following acute allergen exposure. The rise in sputum eosinophil count following allergen challenge strongly correlates with the rise in IL-4 generation from sputum cells. [less ▲]
