Recently, it has been shown that FCGR3A-158 gene polymorphism is associated with biological and possibly clinical response to infliximab in Crohn's disease. We further assessed this association in a subset of 344 patients from the large and well-defined cohort of 573 patients with Crohn's disease from the ACCENT I study. No association could be observed between FCGR3A-158 gene polymorphism and the clinical response to infliximab, which was primarily defined as a decrease of >or=70 points in the Crohn's disease activity index or clinical remission (Crohn's disease activity index <150). We did, however, confirm a trend towards a greater decrease in C-reactive protein after infliximab in V/V homozygotes as compared with V/F heterozygotes and F/F homozygotes (-79.4, -76.5, and -64.3%, respectively, at week 6; P=0.085; one-tailed P=0.043). This finding has no immediate clinical impact but may enhance the understanding of the complex mechanisms of action of anti-tumor necrosis factor agents in Crohn's disease. [less ▲]

Rapid eye movement sleep (REMS) is associated with intense neuronal activity, rapid eye movements, muscular atonia and dreaming. Another important feature in REMS is the instability in autonomic, especially in cardiovascular regulation. The neural mechanisms underpinning the variability in heart rate (VHR) during REMS are not known in detail, especially in humans. During wakefulness, the right insula has frequently been reported as involved in cardiovascular regulation but this might not be the case during REMS. We aimed at characterizing the neural correlates of VHR during REMS as compared to wakefulness and to slow wave sleep (SWS), the other main component of human sleep, in normal young adults, based on the statistical analysis of a set of (H2O)-O-15 positron emission tomography (PET) sleep data acquired during SWS, REMS and wakefulness. The results showed that VHR correlated more tightly during REMS than during wakefulness with the rCBF in the right amygdaloid complex. Moreover, we assessed whether functional relationships between amygdala and any brain area changed depending the state of vigilance. Only the activity within in the insula was found to covary with the amygdala, significantly more tightly during wakefulness than during REMS in relation to the VHR. The functional connectivity between the amygdala and the insular cortex, two brain areas involved in cardiovascular regulation, differs significantly in REMS as compared to wakefulness. This suggests a functional reorganization of central cardiovascular regulation during REMS. (c) 2006 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. [less ▲]

Two cases of diffuse dermal angiomatosis are reported in middle-aged women. This rare disease of unknown origin is characterized by increased dermal angiomatosis and ulceration. The clinical and histologic presentations of the presently reported lesions were typical for this disorder. Endothelial cells exhibited a normal immunophenotype. The perivascular basement membranes showed a distribution of collagen alpha chains typical for blood vessels, but not for lymphatics. Immunohistochemistry revealed other undescribed features. At the site of the clinical lesions, linear and granular deposits of immunoglobulins A and M, and complement were found around the vessels and at the dermal-epidermal junction. The same deposits were also found restricted to the dermal-epidermal junction in the peripheral clinically intact skin. No serological signs of auto-immune disorder were detected in one patient. A monoclonal gammopathy was disclosed in the other patient. A pattern of immunoreactant deposits similar to that disclosed in the two patients was not found in the control specimens, and has not been described so far in other types of vascular hyperplasia and neoplasia. A pathogenic role of these deposits is unsettled and should be further explored. [less ▲]

Specimens of the pearlfish Carapus mourlani (Carapidae) were observed for the first time in association with the sea cucumber Isostichopus fuscus (Holothuroidea: Echinodermata) along the coast of Ecuador. Out of 4345 sea cucumbers collected from various depths between 5 and 60 m, 12 harbored a pearlfish either in the coelomic cavity, the respiratory tree, or the digestive tract, yielding a prevalence of ca. 0.0028. The presence of C. mourlani appeared to be detrimental to the holothurian host in some cases. Side effects resulting from coelomic cavity infections included less advanced gonad maturity (reduced gonadal tubule diameter and length, lower ratio of mature oocytes) and a significant proportion of necrotic and shriveled gonadal tubules, devoid of gametes. Aside from discussing this evidence, the present paper briefly describes the biology of the pearlfish, its relationship with the host, and its daily activity cycle. [less ▲]

L’objectif de la présente étude a été la caractérisation des profils plasmatiques de la protéine associée à la gestation (PAG) et de la progestérone au cours de la gestation et deux semaines après le part chez la race Ouled Djellal. Vingt-cinq brebis ont été prélevées hebdomadairement après synchronisation des chaleurs et monte naturelle. Les concentrations de PAG et de progestérone ont été déterminées par dosage radio-immunologique. Deux femelles n’ont pas été fécondées tandis que 23 ont eu des gestations considérées comme normales (n=18) ou pathologiques (n=5). Chez 18 brebis (12 gestations simples et 6 multiples), les concentrations de PAG et de progestérone ont été significativement influencées par le stade de la gestation (P<0.0001) et non par le nombre de fœtus. Des profils individuels ont été décrits chez 7 brebis dont 3 femelles ayant eu des pertes embryonnaires, et 2 brebis ayant avorté (66e et 110e jours), et enfin chez 2 brebis ayant donné naissance à terme chacune à un agneau vivant et expulsé au moment de la mise-bas 1 ou 2 fœtus momifié(s). Les concentrations en PAG ont été plus faibles chez les femelles ayant de fœtus momifiés en parallèle avec des fœtus vivants. [less ▲]

Patients with malabsorption represent a small proportion of presentations with chronic diarrhea. In spite of some progress, the last twenty years were not very innovating in malabsorption investigations. Supporting history may direct investigations toward either the small bowel or pancreas. Serological testing for celiac disease will determine most cases without invasive investigation, but individuals suspected to have small bowel malabsorption, despite negative celiac serology, should have endoscopic distal duodenal biopsies taken to exclude other rare forms of small bowel enteropathy. This strategy has largely supplanted many older tests of small bowel function. [less ▲]

In this paper, a new finite element method is described and applied. It is based on a theory developed to model poromechanical problems where the mechanical part is obeying a second gradient theory. The aim of such a work is to properly model the post localized behaviour of soils and rocks saturated with a pore fluid. Beside the development of this new Coupled theory, a corresponding finite element method has been developed. The elements used are based on a weak form of the relation between the deformation gradient and the second gradient, using a field of Lagrange multipliers. The global problem is solved by a system of equations where the kinematic variables are fully coupled with the pore pressure. Some numerical experiments showing the effectiveness of the method ends the paper. Copyright (c) 2005 John Wiley [less ▲]

The profound endocrine upheaval of pregnancy is frequently associated with changes in the function and structure of the blood and lymph microvasculature of the skin and mucosae. Palmar erythema is frequent but rarely severe and is associated with burning sensations. Spider telangiectasias develop in the majority of pregnant White women but are less often identified in women with darker skin. Hemangiomas and glomus tumors occur in one-third of women. A firm edema may develop on the face and extremities in the final months of pregnancy. Venous hypertension and varicosities of the lower limbs are common. Gingivitis, gum hypertrophy, and pyogenic granuloma are common in the oral cavity. The vaginal mucosa is also affected, showing a violaceous aspect, at times accompanied by varicosities of the vulva. Many gestational vascular changes regress spontaneously in the postpartum phase. Some vascular tumors may need to be treated with a vascular laser or intense pulsed light. [less ▲]
