The aims of the present study are to document side-to-side differences and temporal variability, between two trials (T1 and T2 at a time interval of 3 months) of nerve conduction measurements collected from 30 healthy subjects (mean age 22 +/- 2 years). METHODS: The protocol at T1 consisted of motor nerve conduction studies of median, ulnar, peroneal and tibial nerves bilaterally, with measurement of (a) motor response size (amplitude and area); (b) terminal latency; (c) minimal, mean and maximal F-wave latency; (d) motor conduction velocity; and (e) F-wave occurrence. T1 also involved sensory nerve conduction studies of median, ulnar, radial, lateral and medial cutaneous, sural and superficial peroneal nerves bilaterally, with measurement of sensory potential size (amplitude and area) and computation of sensory conduction velocity. The protocol at T2 consisted of identical measurements from the dominant side. RESULTS AND CONCLUSION: There was a negative relationship between the variability of parameters evaluating nervous conduction and the length of the nerve segment under study. Thus, the smallest side-to-side and temporal variabilities are measured for minimal F-wave latencies (on average 2-3%). The limits of symmetry and temporal variability are particularly useful for diagnosis of unilateral peripheral neuropathy or neurophysiological follow-up of patients with neuropathy, when the variability of the parameter under study is weak and when there is a high correlation between values recorded on the left and on the right or at T1 and T2. This was the case for motor response size of tibial and ulnar nerves, sensory potential size of radial nerve and minimal F-wave latencies from each studied motor nerve. [less ▲]

In this open-label, randomized study we compared the influence of a new oral contraceptive containing 30 microg ethinylestradiol and 3 mg drospirenone (Yasmin) with a reference preparation containing 30 microg ethinylestradiol and 150 microg desogestrel (Marvelon) on variables of carbohydrate metabolism by means of oral glucose tolerance tests at baseline and in the 6th and 13th treatment cycle. The mean levels of fasting glucose and insulin were similar at baseline and after 13 treatment cycles, whereas C-peptide and free fatty acid levels decreased slightly in both groups. All blood glucose and insulin values measured in the oral glucose tolerance tests were within normal ranges, despite a slight increase in the mean areas under the curves of 0-3 h [AUCs (0-3 h)] of both variables from baseline to treatment cycle 13. Differences between both treatments were not statistically significant. The mean AUCs (0-3 h) for C-peptide were not markedly changed in any treatment group. Free fatty acid levels decreased by 42% in the drospirenone group and increased by 48.9% in the desogestrel group, in terms of means of individual changes. Both preparations were well tolerated and equally efficacious regarding contraception and cycle control. The mean body weight was slightly decreased in most cycles during treatment with the drospirenone combination, as compared to baseline, while it was slightly increased versus baseline in all cycles during treatment with the desogestrel combination. The combination with drospirenone had less impact on blood pressure than the combination with desogestrel. In conclusion, Yasmin, a combined low-dose oral contraceptive with 30 microg ethinylestradiol and 3 mg of the novel progestogen drospirenone, as well as the reference Marvelon, containing 30 microg ethinylestradiol and 150 microg desogestrel had little impact on carbohydrate metabolism when used for 1 year. The observed changes were small and not suggestive of a clinically relevant deterioration of carbohydrate metabolism. [less ▲]

Abstract Purpose. – To assess the feasibility and efficacy of accelerated postoperative radiation therapy (RT) in patients with squamous-cell carcinoma of the head and neck (SCCHN). Patients and methods. – Between December 1997 and July 2001, 68 patients (male to female ratio: 52/16; median age: 60-years (range: 43–81) with pT1-pT4 and/or pN0-pN3 SCCHN (24 oropharynx, 19 oral cavity, 13 hypopharynx, 5 larynx, 3 unknown primary, 2 maxillary sinus, and 2 salivary gland) were included in this prospective study.

Treatment consisted of external beam RT 66 Gy in 5 weeks and 3 days. Median follow-up was 15 months. Results. – According to CTC 2.0, acute morbidity was acceptable: grade 3 mucositis was observed in 15 (22%) patients, grade 3 dysphagia in 19 (28%) patients, grade 3 skin erythema in 21 (31%) patients with a median weight loss of 3.1 kg (range: 0–16). No grade 4 toxicity was observed. Median time to relapse was 13 months; we observed only three (4%) local and four (6%) regional relapses, whereas eight (12%) patients developed distant metastases without any evidence of locoregional recurrence. The 2 years overall-, disease-free survival, and actuarial locoregional control rates were 85, 73 and 83% respectively. Conclusion. – The reduction of the overall treatment time using postoperative accelerated RT with weekly concomitant boost (six fractions per week) is feasible with local control rates comparable to that of published data. Acute RT-related morbidity is acceptable. [less ▲]

Case records from 40 cats subjected to rhinoscopic examination for investigation of chronic nasal disease were reviewed. Cases in which no specific underlying cause (eg neoplasia) was detected were further selected for detailed retrospective study. In these 22 cats (55% of the initial population), a final diagnosis of non-specific chronic nasal disease was made. The radiographic, rhinoscopic, cytological and histopathological findings were reviewed. Mucosal biopsy specimens were obtained in 20 cases. Despite clinical signs of more than 4 weeks duration, histopathology indicated acute inflammation in four cases. Two cases had chronic lymphoplasmacytic inflammation and 14 had mixed (lymphoplasmacytic and neutrophilic) inflammation. Specimens for cytology were obtained from 17 cases by brush sampling. Three of these samples were not diagnostic due to the poor quality of the slides; one showed normal cytology. Acute inflammation was diagnosed by cytology (n = 11) more commonly than chronic (n = 1) or mixed inflammation (n = 1). Concurrent samples, of quality suitable for both histopathological and cytological interpretation, were collected from 12 cases only. Cytological results were in agreement with the histological results in 25%, of these cases, the main discrepancy being the nature of the dominant inflammatory cell type. Therefore cytology does not appear to be a reliable means for detection of chronic inflammation. Further studies are needed in order to investigate the correlation between the nature of mucosal inflammation as defined by both histological and cytological evaluation, and the relationship of these test results to prognosis and therapy.

De 1997 à 2002, près de 4000 Chrysoperla carnea sensu lato furent collectées dans quinze localités de Belgique, principalement dans la ville de Gembloux (Province de Namur). Le fauchage de la végétation à l’aide d’un filet représente le principal mode d’échantillonnage. Les individus capturés furent identifiés sur base des descriptions de Thierry et al. (1992), Duelli (1995, 1999 communication personnelle), ainsi que par comparaison, soit avec différents types morphologiques (de D. Thierry), soit à des individus identifiés sur base de leurs chants (par P. Duelli). Chrysoperla kolthoffi sensu Cloupeau (Ch.c.c.4. ou « motorboat » sensu Henry) constitue le taxon le plus représenté dans les différentes localités. Chrysoperla carnea sensu Cloupeau (« low motorboat » sensu Henry) est également souvent rencontrée abondamment, principalement en automne. Seule Chrysoperla lucasina Lacroix est observée plus rarement chaque année et dans chaque lieu. La fréquence saisonnière de Ch. carnea s.C. est variable. Ainsi, elle est relativement faible en été et elle augmente progressivement au cours de l’automne. A cette période, les proportions de Ch. kolthoffi diminuent tandis que le taux de Ch. lucasina reste stable. [less ▲]

This study examines the prognostic significance of pathologic factors in patients with primary locally advanced rectal cancer treated prospectively with preoperative radiotherapy. From 1992 to 1998, 104 patients with rectal cancer of grades T3 or T4 and any N underwent preoperative radiotherapy followed by surgical resection. Survival curves were estimated according to the Kaplan-Meier method. Correlation of outcome with clinicopathologic variables (pathologic tumor and lymph node staging, histology, radial resection margin [RRM], clearance, vessel involvement, and tumor regression grade [TRG], quantitated in 5 grades) was evaluated using the Cox proportional hazards model. None of the patients achieved a histologically confirmed complete pathologic response, but 79% of the patients showed partial tumor regression (TRG2–4) and 21% did not show any tumor regression (TRG5). Among the tumors, 22% were of a mucinous type. The RRM was free of tumor in 76% of the surgical specimens. The median clearance was 2 mm. Vascular invasion was present in 37 cases (36%). In the univariate analysis, lymph node metastases, absence of tumor regression, positive RRM, and vascular invasion were correlated with adverse overall survival and diseasefree survival; absence of tumor regression, positive RRM, and clearance <2 mm were correlated with local recurrences; and advanced pT stage was correlated only with disease-free survival. However, in the multivariate analysis, only lymph node metastases and RRM were independent prognostic factors for overall survival and disease-free survival, and clearance <2 mm was an independent prognostic factor for local control. Pathologic parameters remain strong determinants of local recurrence and survival in locally advanced rectal cancer, treated preoperatively with hyperfractionated and accelerated radiotherapy. We show that patients with advanced pT, positive lymph nodes, vascular invasion, positive RRM, clearance <2 mm, or absence of tumor regression are known to have poor clinical outcome.
