Bronchoconstriction is one of the most constant clinical sign observed in heaves-affected horses in crisis. Cholinergic pathways are involved in the occurrence of this obstruction. Consequently anticholinergic drugs are potentially able to improve the pulmonary function of horses in acute crisis. Among these, atropine and ipratropium bromide have been previously experimented and their beneficial effects reported. In the present work, glycopyrrolate, another synthetic anticholinergic molecule has been tested for bronchodilator efficiency in heaves-affected horses. An acute exacerbation of the illness was obtained by a natural challenge with hay and straw in 7 heaves-affected horses. The first day, the reversibility of the bronchospasm of these horses was controlled by intravenous administration of atropine. Then, pulmonary function tests including mechanics of breathing, ie measurement of pleural pressure changes and respiratory airflows, and arterial blond gases analysis, were performed before as well as 15 and 60 minutes alter inhalation of 1500 µg of glycopyrrolate (Robinul®). The crisis induced a dramatic increase of total pulmonary resistance and maximal pleural pressure changes as well as a decrease in dynamic lung compliance. These changes were significantly reversed 15 and 60 minutes after inhalation of glycopyrrolate. We did not observe any adverse effects similar to those classically observed with atropine. These results showed that glycopyrrolate is a very efficient bronchodilator that may be used by the practitioner to treat a heaves-affected horses in crisis [less ▲]

During the last decades, several research groups developed investigations in order to characterize proteins or glycoproteins synthesized by ruminant placenta. As result of these investigations, a large family of pregnancy-associated glycoproteins was identified in bovine ovine and caprine placenta. By using molecular biology techniques, it was demonstrated that they are members of the aspartic proteinase superfamily, in which they co-exist with pepsinogens, renin, cathepsin D and E, etc. Due to their secretion in large amounts by the trophoblastic binucleated cells, bovine PAGs are detectable in maternal circulation soon after implantation. In the present work, in addition to the physiological and biochemical characterization of bovine PAGs, it will be showed how the measurement of PAG concentrations in maternal blood is useful for both pregnancy confirmation and follow-up of the fetus-placental well-being. Available information related to other placental proteins will be also discussed. [less ▲]

The International Lie`ge Colloquium on Ocean Dynamics is organized annually. The topic differs from year to year in an attempt to address, as much as possible, recent problems and incentive new subjects in oceanography. Assembling a group of active and eminent scientists from various countries and often different disciplines, the Colloquia provide a forum for discussion and foster a mutually beneficial exchange of information opening on to a survey of recent discoveries, essential mechanisms, impelling question marks and valuable recommendations for future research. The objective of the 2001 Colloquium was to evaluate the progress of data assimilation methods in marine science and, in particular, in coupled hydrodynamic, ecological and bio-geo-chemical models of the ocean.

The relationship between trophic position through delta(13)C and delta(15)N and trace metal concentrations (Zn, Cd, Cu and Hg) was investigated in the tissues of six marine mammal species from the Northeast Atlantic: striped dolphin Stenella coeruleoalba, common dolphin, Delphinus delphis. Atlantic white-sided dolphin Lagenorhynchus acutus, harbour porpoise Phocoena phocoena, white beaked-dolphin Lagenorhynchus albirostris, grey seal Halichoerus grypus stranded on French Channel and Irish coasts. White-beaked dolphins, harbour porpoises, white-sided dolphins, common and striped dolphins display the same relative and decreasing trophic position, as measured by delta(15)N values, along both the Irish and French channel coasts, reflecting conservative trophic habits between these two places. Hepatic and renal Cd concentrations were significantly correlated to muscle delta(13)C and delta(15)N values while Hg, Zn and Cu did not. These results suggest that Cd accumulation is partly linked to the diet while other factors Such as age or body condition might explain Hg, Zn or Cu variability in marine mammals. Combined stable isotope and trace metal analyses appear to be useful tools for the study of marine mammal ecology. (C) 2003 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved. [less ▲]

We provide a detailed quantum treatment of the spectral characteristics and of the dynamics of nondispersive two-electron wave packets along the periodically driven, collinear frozen planet configuration of helium. These highly correlated, long-lived wave packets arise as a quantum manifestation of regular islands in a mixed classical phase space, which are induced by nonlinear resonances between the external driving and the unperturbed dynamics of the frozen-planet configuration. Particular emphasis is given to the dependence of the ionization rates of the wave packet states on the driving field parameters and on the quantum mechanical phase space resolution, preceded by a comparison of 1D and 3D life times of the unperturbed frozen planet. Furthermore, we study the effect of a superimposed static electric field component, which, on the grounds of classical considerations, is expected to stabilize the real 3D dynamics against large (and possibly ionizing) deviations from collinearity.

The γ- and δ-lactones of less than 12 carbons constitute a group of compounds of great interest to the flavour industry. It is possible to produce some of these lactones through biotechnology. For instance, γ-decalactone can be obtained by biotransformation of methyl ricinoleate. Among the organisms used for this bioproduction, Yarrowia lipolytica is a yeast of choice. It is well adapted to growth on hydrophobic substrates, thanks to its efficient and numerous lipases, cytochrome P450, acylCoA oxidases and its ability to produce biosurfactants. Furthermore, genetic tools have been developed for its study. This review deals with the production of lactones by Y. lipolytica with special emphasis on the biotransformarion of methyl ricinoleate to γ-decalactone. When appropriate, information from the lipid metabolism of other yeast species is presented. [less ▲]

The density in melanin chromatophores becomes heterogeneous in the epidermis during the early events of photoaging. Little is known about the regional variability in the resulting mottled skin appearance on the sun-exposed parts of the body in the elderly. The relationship between these features and the dermal atrophy related to aging is also an area ripe for study. The aim of the present study was to objectively assess and compare such aspects of photoaging in older subjects. A computer-assisted video camera equipped with an internal ultraviolet-emitting unit (Visioscan) was used in combination with image analysis to quantify the infraclinical mottling of the skin on the forehead, neck and dorsal forearm. A Densi Score device served to assess the dermal atrophy by rating the skin folding capacity. A mottled subclinical melanoderma was disclosed on the three evaluation sites in all subjects irrespective of their phototypes. Three main patterns were identified corresponding to regular perifollicular dots, streaky macules along shallow wrinkles and unevenly shaped macules in the interfollicular area. The extent in melanoderma was larger on the forehead than on the neck and forearm. The age after 60 years did not influence the severity of mottled melanoderma, but clearly altered the skin folding capacity. The greatest inter-individual differences in mottled melanoderma were found in phototype II subjects. In conclusion, infraclinical mottled melanoderma is present in all individuals after 60 years of age. This type of epidermal photoaging does not appear to be influenced in older ages. By contrast, skin laxity due to dermal aging continues to progress beyond the age of 60 years. [less ▲]

The diversity of onychomycoses is large when the disease is scrutinized using traditional, fluorescence or confocal microscopy. Histomycology is a non-invasive assessment performed on nail clippings. The location of and the density in fungal cells is variable. In some instances, these aspects remain clinically unsuspected. In vivo confocal microscopy can bring the same information. Computerized image analysis of histological sections is the most performant means for quantifying the fungal load. Immunohistochemistry brings information about the identity of the fungus or the association of different fungi present in the nail plate. Mixed infections may be unifocal or located at different levels in the nail apparatus. The viability of fungi as assessed by vital stains can be assessed under the microscope and quantified by flow cytometry. The different facets of nail histomycology are complementary and shed some light on aspects sometimes unsuspected of onychomycoses. [less ▲]
