BACKGROUND: Drug-induced toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN) is a rare life-threatening disease characterized by the extensive destruction of the epidermis contrasting with the discreteness of lymphoid cell infiltration. The precise pathomechanism of the disease remains unclear. METHODS: Skin specimens and peripheral and thoracic lymph nodes (LNs) were collected from 2 TEN patients. They were examined by conventional histology and immunohistochemistry using antibodies directed to factor XIIIa (dermal dendrocytes), CD1a (Langerhans cells), CD15 (granulocytes), CD20 (B lymphocytes), CD45RO (activated T lymphocytes), CD68 (macrophages) and the proliferation marker Ki-67. LNs from patients with mycosis fungoides, from subjects dead from acute cardiac failure or traumatic injuries, as well as metastasis-free sentinel LNs of cutaneous melanoma served as positive and negative controls. RESULTS: TEN LNs showed absence of germinal centers but a moderate hyperplasia of the paracortical T cell zone. Immunohistochemistry did not reveal any distinctive aspect in LN cellular densities between TEN and other control conditions except for the factor-XIIIa+ dendritic cells which were dramatically reduced in numbers in TEN LNs. This rarefaction in LNs contrasted with the great number of these cells in the skin of the same patients. CONCLUSION: The structure of TEN LNs rules out the involvement of an antibody-mediated response. As dendritic factor-XIIIa+ cells are involved in most cutaneous T-cell-mediated responses, their depletion in TEN LNs could explain the sparse lymphoid cell infiltrate in lesional TEN skin. [less ▲]

Étant donné la place exceptionnelle dont elle jouit dans l'imaginaire collectif occidental depuis près de 4.000 ans, l'Égypte pharaonique est de nos jours l'objet de nombreuses idées reçues, qui, pour la plupart, remontent à l'Antiquité. L'examen que l'ouvrage propose des principales idées reçues générées par notre société à propos de l'Égypte antique vise à constituer un éveil autant à l'Égyptologie, à l'étude de ce que fut réellement la civilisation pharaonique, qu'à la manière dont celle-ci fut récupérée, exploitée et parfois déformée par notre système culturel, à ce que l'on appelle en Histoire la réception culturelle de l'Égypte.

This study examined the psychological symptomatology of men diagnosed with andropause and the association between calculated free testosterone (T) and depressed mood, anxiety and quality of life. Subjects were 153 men, aged 50-70 years, who participated in a screening of andropause. Total testosterone, FSH, LH and SHBG levels were measured. Depressed mood was assessed with the Carroll Rating Scale, anxiety with the "anxiety-insomnia" dimension of the General Health Questionnaire, and quality of life with the World Health Organisation Quality of Life questionnaire. The results showed that levels of free T decreased with age, whereas FSH and LH increased. Carroll Rating Scale scores were higher among hypogonadal subjects, but the mean score was low and not pathological. A negative correlation was observed between severity of depression as assessed by the Carroll Rating Scale and free T levels. However, subjects with a significant score on this scale did not exhibit different free T levels compared to subjects with a non-significant depressive score. Anxiety and quality of life did not differ between hypogonadal and eugonadal subjects. The present study therefore suggests that andropause is not characterised by specific psychological symptoms, but may be associated with "depressive symptoms" that are not considered as pathological.

The Cassini Ultraviolet Imaging Spectrograph (UVIS) observed Jupiter in a 4-sec integration "high time-resolution mode" on Jan 8, 13-14, and 20-21 in 2001. In this mode Extreme-Ultraviolet and Far-Ultraviolet spectra were obtained with reduced spectral and spatial resolution in order to study rapid variations in H2 band and H Lyman alpha emission. Previous work has shown that the region inside Jupiter's main auroral ovals contains highly variable spots of emission (auroral flares) that persist for typically 1 or 2 minutes. This duration is similar to that in Jupiter's quasi-periodic (QP) radio bursts. We compare UVIS data to simultaneous Galileo Plasma Wave Subsystem (PWS) and Cassini Radio and Plasma Wave Subsystem (RPWS) observations. Jan 8 was an active period for UV variability, that we associate with polar auroral flares. There is a correlation between the radio and UV bursts in this period, suggesting that they are related phenomena. We will also explore coordinated Hubble Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph (STIS) time-tagged UV images from Dec 14 and Dec 16, 2000, and Jan 13-14, and Jan 20-21, 2001 to study the spatial properties of the auroral flares. The auroral emissions inside the main oval were most prominent in the Dec 14, 2000 HST data. We acknowledge support from the Cassini Project, the Space Telescope Science Institute, and the NASA OSS Minority University Initiative. [less ▲]

During the preliminary phase A of the Ground-based European Nulling Interferometer Experiment (GENIE), a number of interferometric configurations have been studied, in the cases of exozodiacal cloud and hot Jupiter detection. Their expected performances have been computed in light of the measured or expected performances of the VLTI sub-systems. A simple Bracewell nulling interferometer, formed of two Unit Telescopes and working in the L' or N bands, has been identified as a good candidate configuration for exozodiacal cloud detection. External or internal chopping, fringe tracking and intensity matching will be critical issues for this configuration. In the case of hot Jupiter detection, a double Bracewell with internal modulation in the L' band seems well appropriate, and should allow to carry out low resolution spectroscopy on a few bright exoplanets. The basic assumptions and computations which have lead to these candidate configurations are described in this paper. [less ▲]

Medullary thyroid cancer (MTC) arises from parafollicular C cells secreting calcitonin. MTC occurs both as sporadic tumors and as part of specific inherited autosomal dominant syndromes in which point mutations within a discrete set of RET codons were described. Total thyroidectomy and aggressive neck dissection represents the only chance for cure in the affected patients. Therefore, all patients with thyroid nodular disease should undergo measurement of calcitonin plasma levels to allow preclinical diagnosis of the disease and early appropriate surgery ("secondary prevention"). In case of proband patient for inherited disease, all the family members should be genetically screened to detect the disease gene carriers. Patients with germline mutation would benefit either from earlier surgery at the stage of C-cell hyperplasia or microcarcinoma or prophylactic surgery (total thyroidectomy without neck dissection) (primary prevention) before the onset of any C-cells pathology. The ideal age for performance of such prophylactic surgery is determined by the genotypic features of the disease. [less ▲]
