This study describes the outcome of patients receiving haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) to treat severe refractory autoimmune cytopenia. The registry of the European Group of Blood and Marrow Transplantation holds data on 36 patients receiving 38 transplants, the first transplant was autologous for 27 and allogeneic for nine patients. Patients had autoimmune haemolytic anaemia (autologous: 5; allogeneic: 2), Evans's syndrome (autologous: 2; allogeneic: 5); immune thrombocytopenia (autologous: 12), pure red cell aplasia (autologous: 4; allogeneic: 1), pure white cell aplasia (autologous: 1; allogeneic 1), or thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (autologous: 3). Patients had longstanding disease having failed multiple prior treatments. Among 26 evaluable patients mobilized for autologous HSCT, three died of treatment-related causes, one died of disease progression, seven were non-responders, six patients had transient responses and nine had continuous partial or complete remission. Of the seven evaluable patients receiving allogeneic HSCT, one died of treatment-related complications, one with transient response died of progressive disease and five had a continuous response. Autologous and allogeneic HSCT may induce a response in a subset of patients with autoimmune cytopenia of long duration albeit at the price of considerable toxicity. [less ▲]

Corps cartésiens vient achever le vaste tableau offert par La physique métaphysique de Descartes, et examine, avec la même acuité, la philosophie cartésienne à travers le prisme de la science cartésienne : tantôt pour accroître la netteté de contours déjà tracés – le statut des lois de la nature, la réfutation de la physique aristotélicienne –, tantôt pour reprendre certaines esquisses – les transformations de la méthode, Descartes et l’occasionnalisme –, d’autres fois encore pour arracher au flou de l’arrière-plan le visage d’un objecteur méconnu ou souligner le rapport qu’entretient Descartes savant à la future communauté scientifique. Le présent recueil nous invite à adopter une perspective nouvelle : on n’y traite pas seulement du corps en mouvement, mais d’un corps sentant et agissant, uni à une âme, dont l’explicitation conceptuelle est une aporie persistante du cartésianisme. L’interaction entre l’esprit et le corps pourra être expliquée en trouvant dans les écrits philosophiques et scientifiques de Descartes les éléments d’une réponse distincte de celle proposée à Élisabeth : car cette interaction est un paradigme pour toute explication causale qui, ultimement, permet aussi de comprendre l’interaction des corps physiques. C’est donc une réflexion sur l’histoire de la philosophie, ses méthodes et ses buts qui nous est proposée ici : la mise au jour de la pensée cartésienne suppose l’examen minutieux des textes et de son rapport à des héritages et à des interlocuteurs multiples qui en constituent ensemble l’historicité. Elle exige aussi quelquefois que l’on se mette dans la peau de Descartes, que l’on y prenne corps, pour qu’un dialogue – qui ne sera juste et fécond qu’à cette condition – s’instaure enfin avec la philosophie analytique et l’épistémologie contemporaine.

Diaper dermatitis is a frequent condition. Several clinical types are distinguished. The most frequent type results from increased fragility of the newborn buttock skin when covered by diapers. According to the mechanisms involved and the severity of the dermatitis, one can distinguish the intertrigo of the chubby baby, and the so-called "W", "Y" and "red panties" types of diaper dermatitis. When the effects of occlusion are not controlled by adequate absorption by the diapers, hyperhydration of the stratum corneum occurs and progresses to maceration. As a result, the value of the coefficient of friction of the skin increases with epidermal weakening to rubbing. In addition, fecal enzymes (urease, proteases and lipases) alter urines and skin. Judicious hygiene measures and the correct choice of diapers are mandatory. Cutaneous colonization by microorganisms, the most important of which being Candida albicans, is the main complication. Adequate preventive and curative measures can combat diaper dermatitis with confidence. A miconazole paste allows to improve the tribological properties of the interface between diapers and the skin. It also abates the impact of Candida albicans in the pathogenesis of the skin disorder. [less ▲]

The von Willebrand factor (VWF) may be causally associated with coronary heart disease (CHD) or merely be a marker of endothelial damage. The G allele of the -1793 C/G promoter polymorphism in the VWF gene has been associated with higher plasma levels of VWF. To investigate whether VWF has a causal role in CHD, we designed a case-cohort study, including 352 subjects with CHD and a random cohort (n = 736), and prospectively examined the association of the -1793 C/G polymorphism with CHD in subjects with and without advanced atherosclerosis. All subjects were </=75 years of age and participating in the population-based Rotterdam Study. Atherosclerosis was assessed by the ankle-arm index. Among subjects with advanced atherosclerosis, heterozygous and homozygous carriers of the G allele had a 3.5 (1.2-10.2) and 1.5 (0.4-5.7) fold increased risk of CHD respectively, compared with C/C homozygotes. The hazard ratio was 2.6 (1.0-6.8) for carriers of at least one copy of the G allele versus non-carriers. No associations were found in the absence of advanced atherosclerosis. In conclusion, this study suggests that the G allele of the -1793 C/G polymorphism in the VWF gene is associated with an increased risk of CHD, but only in subjects with advanced atherosclerosis.

Anal fissure is a common problem which can evolve to chronicity. Chronic anal fissure is thought to be an ischemic ulceration related to sphincter hypertonia. Lateral internal sphineterotomy, the most common treatment for chronic anal fissure, may cause permanent injury to anal sphincter leading to fecal incontinence. To avoid such side effect were developed medications producing a temporary or reversible sphincterotomy reducing the sphincter pressure only until the fissure has healed : nitrates, calcium channel antagonists and botulinum toxin. Authors aimed to summary the state of research on such treatments (efficacy, side effects, recurrence risk) and to clarify the role of these different medical options in the current treatment of chronic anal fissure.

Two-colour sum-frequency generation (two-colour SFG) spectroscopy was used to probe both vibrational and electronic properties of 1-dodecanethiol/Ag(1 1 1), Au(1 1 1), and Pt(1 1 1), of 5-[p-(6-mercaptohexoxy)-phenyl]-10,15,20-triphenylporphin/Pt(1 1 1), and of C60/Ag(1 1 1). The role of the various physical parameters determining the sum-frequency generation (SFG) intensity equation is highlighted. The enhancement of the non-linear second order susceptibility in the aforementioned interfaces is explained in terms of metal interband transition, molecular electronic transition and of electron–phonon coupling, respectively.

La leucose bovine est une maladie qui affecte les lymphocytes B bovins et ovins et qui est causée par le virus de la leucémie bovine (BLV). Celui-ci est utilisé comme modèle pour l’étude de leucémies humaines induites par des rétrovirus comme HTLV-1. Dans le développement de telles maladies, la dérégulation de l’expression de certains gènes semble jouer un rôle essentiel. Les histones désacétylases (HDACs), en modifiant la conformation de la chromatine, jouent le rôle de répresseur transcriptionnel. L’utilisation d’un inhibiteur de HDACs (le valproate) serait donc une façon de lutter contre les leucémies viro-induites. Notre travail a alors consisté d’une part, à étudier l’effet de cette molécule sur l’apoptose et sur l’expression virale de cellules mises en culture et, d’autre part, à réaliser une étude de l’expression différentielle des gènes par une analyse microdamier. Nos résultats mettent en évidence que l’acide valproique a un effet sur la mort cellulaire en augmentant les niveaux d’apoptose. L’analyse microdamier nous a permis d’identifier une quarantaine de gènes communs à toutes les expériences. Parmi ces gènes, huit interviennent dans la régulation du cycle cellulaire, la prolifération ou l’apoptose. [less ▲]

The Large Offspring Syndrome has frequently been reported for in vitro produced calves. The objective of this study was to determine whether any differences in body dimensions (biparietal diameter of the cranium (BPD), cross-section of the abdomen at the insertion of the umbilical cord (CAU)) and heart rate (FHR) can be detected during the first 108 days of gestation between bovine foetuses derived from different methods of embryo production. Three groups of pregnancies with calvings at term resulted from non-surgical transfers of three types of embryos: recipients carrying an embryo obtained by standard MOET procedures (n = 25); recipients carrying an embryo produced in vitro from OPU-derived oocytes, using co-culture-medium (n = 14) or SOF-medium (n = 22). Transrectal ultrasonographic examinations were performed weekly. Ultrasound images were recorded and during off-line analysis FHR, BPD and CAU were determined. For each foetus a curve was fitted and the estimates on fixed time intervals were used as dependent variables in an analysis of variance to detect differences between the three pregnancy groups. Neither gestation length nor birth weight differed significantly between the three pregnancy groups, nor could any differences with respect to BPD, CAU or FHR be detected between Days 35 and 108 of gestation. It is concluded that no differences exist between the early development of bovine foetuses, derived from MOET, IVP-co-culture or IVP-SOF embryos, and resulting in calves with normal birth weights.
