Capsule endoscopy is a new technique of exploration which enables to visualize the entire small bowel. Occult or unexplained digestive bleeding currently constitutes on major indication of this technique. The aim of this study is to report the results obtained among 15 patients investigated by capsule endoscopy and to discuss the place of this new technique in the small bowel exploration. [less ▲]

Respiratory disease is the principal cause of loss of young cattle worldwide. The syndrome arises from a number of factors, including those involving the animal, e.g., age, general condition and immune status; its environment, e.g., changes in food, temperature and humidity that lead to stress; and the presence of infectious agents, e.g., bacteria, viruses and mycoplasmas. The syndrome, in a method proposed by the author, can be classified into four grades: Grade 1, subclinical disease; Grade 2, compensated clinical disease; Grade 3, noncompensated clinical disease; and Grade 4, irreversible clinical disease. The increase in frequency and economic impact of bovine respiratory disease complex can be correlated with the escalating industrialisation of cattle production. In intensive operations, commingling of animals from multiple sources, exposure to many organisms, stress and management practices are all factors that can lead to disease. The predisposition of cattle, especially beef calves, to respiratory problems is related to their lack of functional pulmonary hardiness. Selection of breeds that demonstrate adequate pulmonary function and sufficient ventilatory reserve may help in the control of the bovine respiratory disease complex, but this approach is difficult to implement and slow to produce results. Prophylactic measures, including vaccination programmes and modifying management practices to reduce stress, also have a place in preventing the bovine respiratory disease complex. Unfortunately, these measures are not always easy to put into operation and cannot completely eradicate the problem. Therapeutic strategies to minimise the economic impact of the syndrome include use of early antibacterial therapy, modulation of the pulmonary inflammatory reaction and correction of mechanical disorders [less ▲]

X-linked agammaglobulinemia (XLA) is a human immunodeficiency caused by mutations in Bruton tyrosine kinase (Btk) and characterized by an arrest in early B-cell development, near absence of serum immunoglobulin, and recurrent bacteria infections. Using Btk- and Tec-deficient mice (BtkTec-/-) as a model for XLA, we determined if Btk gene therapy could correct this disorder. Bone marrow (BM) from 5-fluorouracil (5FU)-treated BtkTec-/- mice was transduced with a retroviral vector expressing human Btk and transplanted into BtkTec-/- recipients. Mice engrafted with transduced hematopoietic cells exhibited rescue of both primary and peripheral B-lineage development, revocery of peritoneal B1 B cells, and correction of serum immunoglobulin M (IgM) and IgG3 levels. Gene transfer also restored T-independent type II immune responses, and B-cell antigen receptor (BCR) proliferative responses. B-cell progenitors derived from Btk-transduced stem cells exhibited higher levels of Btk expression than non-B cells; and marking studies demonstrated a selective advantage for Btk-transduced B-lineage cells. BM derived from primary recipients also rescued Btk-dependent function in secondary hosts that had received a transplant. Together, these data demonstrate that gene transfer into hematopoietic stem cells can reconstitute Btk-dependent B-cell development and function in vivo, and strongly support the feasibility of pursuing Btk gene transfer for XLA.

Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) type VIIC, or dermatosparactic type, is a recessively inherited connective tissue disorder characterized, among other symptoms, by an extreme skin fragility resulting from mutations inactivating ADAMTS-2, an enzyme excising the aminopropeptide of procollagens type I, II, and III. All previously described mutations create premature stop codons leading to a marked reduction in the level of mRNA. In this study, we analyzed the ADAMTS2 cDNA sequences from five patients displaying clinical and/or biochemical features consistent with a diagnosis of either typical or potentially mild form of EDS type VIIC. Three different alterations were detected in the two patients with typical EDS type VIIC. The first patient was homozygous for a genomic deletion causing an in-frame skipping of exons 3-5 in the transcript. In the second patient, the allele inherited from the mother lacks exon 3, generating a premature stop codon, whereas the paternal allele has a genomic deletion resulting in an in-frame skipping of exons 14-16 at the mRNA level. Although the exons 3-5 or 14-16 encode protein domains that have not been previously recognized as crucial for ADAMTS-2 activity, the aminoprocollagen processing was strongly impaired in vitro and in vivo, providing evidence for the requirement of these domains for proper enzyme function. The three other patients with a phenotype with some resemblance to EDS type VIIC only had silent and functionally neutral variations also frequently found in a normal population. [less ▲]

In a 2-year experiment, 66 Belgian Blue (BB) double-muscled culled females have been divided in three groups according to the calving number (heifers-H, cows culled after two calvings-C2 or four calvings-C4) and finished on a maize silage-based diet in order to compare animal performance and evolution of carcass and meat characteristics with age. Four females per group were slaughtered on day 0 to assess carcass and meat characteristics of lean animals. The initial and final live weights, the carcass weight and the daily food intake increased with advancing age, while the live weight gain and feed efficiency decreased. The H presented the higher killing-out and muscle proportions and the lower adipose tissue proportion. Their meat was less dark and less red than that of older cows. The lowest protein content and the highest fat content in meat dry matter were found in the C2. In the three groups, the carcass and meat became fatter with finishing process. The amplitude of fat deposition was the highest in C2. It can be concluded that the performance of BB culled females vary with age. The carcass and meat characteristics differ mainly between H and cows, few differences appearing between cows. (C) 2003 Elsevier B.V All rights reserved. [less ▲]

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.
