Convenient strategies are needed for postmenopausal osteoporosis management. Current oral bisphosphonates are effective and generally well tolerated, but are hampered by strict dosing requirements. Less frequent dosing schedules are expected to improve adherence to therapy and hence outcomes. Ibandronate is a potent, nitrogen-containing bisphosphonate in ongoing clinical development exploring its potential to be administered less frequently than at weekly intervals. Uniquely, ibandronate can be administered either orally or as an intravenous (i.v.) injection, with a between-dose interval of >2 months. In postmenopausal women, oral ibandronate, when administered either daily or intermittently, has demonstrated robust antifracture efficacy at the spine (62% [p=0.0001] and 50% [p=0.0006] risk reduction versus placebo), accompanied by significant increases in bone mineral density (BMD) at the spine and hip, and suppression of bone turnover markers. Studies of intermittent i.v. ibandronate injections in postmenopausal women have shown dose-related BMD gains and bone turnover marker suppression comparable to those obtained after a similar duration of treatment with the proven effective oral ibandronate regimen. Furthermore, in a trial conducted in patients with corticosteroid-induced osteoporosis, intermittent i.v. ibandronate injections reduced vertebral fracture risk by 62% versus an active control (p=0.043). In all these trials, the oral and i.v. ibandronate regimens were well tolerated. Ongoing, large multinational clinical trials are investigating two intermittent ibandronate regimens: once-monthly oral and intermittent i.v. injections. These simple ibandronate regimens are expected to provide the optimal combination of efficacy, tolerability and patient convenience, leading to improved treatment adherence and thus, enhanced outcomes in postmenopausal osteoporosis.

Recently, Ge et al. (2003) reported a very high accuracy of memory for a highly familiar face. Their Chinese participants had to identify the most veridical appearance of Mao’s face among unaltered and transformed (inter-ocular distance was gradually increased or decreased) versions of his portrait. In the present experiment, the same facial transformations were applied to our participants’ faces to evaluate whether this hyperfidelity for familiar faces is specific to famous individuals whose face is mainly known from a standard portrait or if it could generalise to personally known faces (the own face and a close person’s face). Results showed that performance was not different for the two familiar faces in the recognition task, or between the recognition task and a perceptual discrimination task. The high accuracy of memory previously shown for a very famous face generalises to personally known individuals for whom we have a various visual experience. [less ▲]

Cette contribution fait le point sur les modifications apportées au régime des successions internationales par le Code de droit international privé. Loin de révolutionner la matière, le Code se contente de prendre acte et de confirmer les principes classiques depuis longtemps acceptés. Sur le fond, les innovations sont limitées à des points secondaires. Partant, il faudra à l’avenir continuer de tenir compte du morcellement potentiel des successions en une masse mobilière et autant de masses immobilières qu’il y a d’immeubles dans des pays différents. L’étude des règles nouvelles révèle cependant que le Code apporte de nombreuses précisions et clarifications sur des questions qui n’avaient reçu, dans l’ancien droit, qu’un traitement sommaire, voire étaient restées sans réponse. C’est l’apport principal du Code de fournir une réglementation complète et détaillée d’une matière dont l’importance pratique ne cesse de croître.d [less ▲]

SHIP2, the ubiquitous SH2 domain containing inositol 5-phosphatase, includes a series of protein interacting domains and has the ability to dephosphorylate phosphatidylinositol 3,4,5-trisphosphate [PtdIns(3,4,5)P3] in vitro. The present study, which was undertaken to evaluate the impact of SHIP2 on PtdIns(3,4,5)P3 levels, was performed in a mouse embryonic fibroblast (MEF) model using SHIP2 deficient (– ⁄ –) MEF cells derived from knockout mice. PtdIns(3,4,5)P3 was upregulated in serum stimulated – ⁄ – MEF cells as compared to +⁄+ MEF cells. Although the absence of SHIP2 had no effect on basal PtdIns(3,4,5)P3 levels, we show here that this lipid was significantly upregulated in SHIP2 – ⁄ – cells but only after short-term (i.e. 5–10 min) incubation with serum. The difference in PtdIns(3,4,5)P3 levels in heterozygous fibroblast cells was intermediate between the +⁄+ and the – ⁄ – cells. In our model, insulin-like growth factor-1 stimulation did not show this upregulation. Serum stimulated phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI 3-kinase) activity appeared to be comparable between +⁄+ and – ⁄ – cells. Moreover, protein kinase B, but not mitogen activated protein kinase activity, was also potentiated in SHIP2 deficient cells stimulated by serum. The upregulation of protein kinase B activity in serum stimulated cells was totally reversed in the presence of the PI 3-kinase inhibitor LY-294002, in both +⁄+ and – ⁄ – cells. Altogether, these data establish a link between SHIP2 and the acute control of PtdIns(3,4,5)P3 levels in intact cells [less ▲]

In Europe, concordant geographical distribution among genetic lineages within different species is rare, which suggests distinct reactions to Quaternary ice ages. This study aims to determine whether such a discrepancy also affects a pair of sympatric species, which are morphologically and taxonomically closely related but which have slight differences in their ecological habits. The phylogeographic structures of two European rodents, the Yellow-necked fieldmouse (A. flavicollis) and the woodmouse (Apodemus sylvaticus) were, therefore, compared on the basis of mitochondrial DNA cytochrome b (mtDNA cyt b) sequences (965 base pairs) from 196 specimens collected from 59 European localities spread throughout the species distributions. The results indicate that the two species survived in different ways through the Quaternary glaciations. A. sylvaticus survived in the Iberian Peninsula from where it recolonized almost all Europe at the end of the last glaciation. Conversely, the refuge from which A. flavicollis recolonized Europe, including northern Spain, during the Holocene corresponds to the Italo-Balkan area, where A. sylvaticus suffered a serious genetic bottleneck. This study confirms that even closely related species may have highly different phylogeographic histories and shows the importance of ecological plasticity of the species for their survival through climate change. Finally, it suggests that phylogeographic distinctiveness may be a general feature of European species. [less ▲]
