The larval development of Myzostoma cirriferum is described by means of SEM, TEM, and cLSM. It is similar to that of other myzostomids and includes three stages: the protrochophore, the trochophore, and the metatrochophore. The protrochophore is a ball-shaped larva present in culture from 18-48 h after egg laying. It has no internal organs and its body is made of three cell types: covering cells and ciliated cells that are external and surrounded by a cuticle, and resting cells that fill the blastocoel. The trochophore is a pear-shaped larva that develops 20-72 h after egg laying; the body includes the same three cell types as the previous stage. The metatrochophore is a pear-shaped larva that develops between 40 h and 14 days and is characterized by the presence of two bundles of four chaetae. When fully developed, the metatrochophore has a digestive system (made of a pharynx, an esophagus, and a blind digestive pouch), two pairs of protonephridia, and a nervous system composed of a supraesophageal ganglion, circumesophageal connectives, and dorsal and ventral nerves. Metamorphosis generally occurs 7 days after egg laying. At that time, the metatrochophore loses its chaetae and becomes pleated ventrally. This ultrastructural analysis suggests that chaetae and the five ventral longitudinal nerve cords of M. cirriferum metatrochophores are homologous structures to those observed in some polychaete trochophores. Coupled with recent phylogenetic analyses, where the Myzostomida are placed outside the Annelida, homologies between myzostomid and polychaete larvae support the view that a trochophore appeared early during the spiralian evolution [less ▲]

The Late-Glacial - Holocene transition, around 13,000 to 8,000 years ago, is the world theatre of an ample climatic upsetting associated to a deep change of the landscapes. Around the rock-shelter of Rochedane, an archaeological site from the French Jura, the climate shifts from peri-glacial to temperate, open environment becomes progressively closed and the faunal assemblages are consequently strongly modified. In order to understand the evolutionary mechanisms implied and their different aspects, a multidisciplinary survey has been led on bones from Red Deer, Cervus elaphus, found in the shelter associated with remains of lithic industry and prehistoric art let by the hunters-gatherers during this unstable time. Isotopic geochemistry has already showed that during this period, the habitat and the diet of deers changed. Moreover, morphological studies is demonstrating that, in the same way, the size of deers seems to decrease. To complete both studies, a palaeogenetic approach was then developed to test two different alternative: do the deers found come from a single population that adapts to new ecological conditions or instead do they correspond to a succession of different populations depending on environmental conditions? The results obtained up to now do not allow to conclude between both hypotheses. However, it was demonstrated that it was possible to access authentic mitochondrial DNA sequences (control region, cytochrome b) from these prehistoric bones and to discriminate the deers of Rochedane to the individual level. Thus, this approach is promising in order to decipher in the future the possible ties between environmental, morphological and genetic changes. [less ▲]

Both desferrioxamine (DFO) and chloroquine can significantly reduce hepatic iron in experimental animals with iron overload by chelating iron from the low-molecular-weight pool or decreasing iron uptake by the transferrin-transferrin receptor cycle, respectively. However, no previous studies have investigated whether combination therapy of these two drugs would further decrease the tissue iron overload as well as iron-induced toxicity. Chloroquine administration, 15 mg/kg, 5x/week, to rats during the iron loading regime, 10 mg/kg, 3x/week for 4 weeks, significantly decreased both hepatic (54%) and macrophage iron content (24%). However when administered in combination with desferrioxamine, 10 mg/kg, 3x/week for 2 weeks at the cessation of iron loading, no further reduction of hepatic iron content was noted while the iron content of the macrophages significantly increased, possibly indicating the flux of ferrioxamine through these cells. Further studies are warranted to investigate the speciation of iron within these macrophages. Macrophages isolated from chloroquine-treated iron loaded rats showed a reduction in latent NFkappaB activation and a significant increase in lipopolysaccharide-stimulated nitrite release by comparison to these parameters in iron loaded macrophages. Co-administration of chloroquine and desferrioxamine normalised the latent activity of NFkappaB to that of control macrophages as well as increasing LPS-stimulated NO release towards control values. However, DFO alone did not have any significant effect upon either of these parameters. Such results may have important relevance for the reduced immune function of iron loaded macrophages isolated from thalassaemia patients receiving chelation therapy and their propensity to increased infection.

In recent microdialysis studies, increased extracellular concentrations of taurine after high ethanol dose administration were identified in various rat brain regions. The mechanisms by which ethanol caused these increases in extracellular taurine concentration remained unclear but could be related to ethanol-induced cell swelling. The aim of the current study was to investigate whether changes in the body osmotic state modulate the effects of ethanol on brain extracellular taurine concentrations. In several groups of rats, brain hypoosmotic or hyperosmotic states were superimposed on acute ethanol (2.0-g/kg) injections, and extracellular taurine concentrations within the nucleus accumbens were assessed by using an intracerebral microdialysis procedure. A hypoosmotic state was obtained by systemic administration of water while hyperosmotic states were induced by intraperitoneal injections of hypertonic saline solutions (1.8% or 3.6% saline). In isoosmotic conditions, ethanol induced an immediate and significant increase in taurine microdialysate content, confirming results of previous studies. However, the effects of ethanol on taurine concentrations were modulated by osmotic manipulations. Hypoosmotic conditions significantly potentiated ethanol-induced taurine release. In contrast, ethanol-induced increases in extracellular taurine levels were attenuated by 1.8% saline injection and totally prevented by 3.6% saline administration. These results strongly argue in favor of a primary role, of osmoregulation in ethanol-induced taurine release. Ethanol-induced cell swelling probably activates volume-sensitive channels, and taurine passively diffuses outside the cells along its concentration gradient. (C) 2003 Elsevier Science Inc.

Although brain injury may have a great impact on the family as a whole, family reactions are not adequately addressed in rehabilitative programmes. When they are, treatment tends to be approached from a family education and support perspective and not from a family therapy perspective. The aim of the following paper is to illustrate the important role that a family systems approach can play in treating families of individuals with brain injury. In particular, clinical examples taken from the literature will be presented that illustrate how family roles can be modified as a consequence of a brain injury, and the importance of re-establishing or re-distributing these roles. It will be argued that an intimate collaboration between family therapist and brain injury professional is essential, and that the ideal professional make-up of clinicians working with families of persons with brain injury are those well-versed in both brain injury rehabilitation and family therapy.
