BACKGROUND: the objective of this study was twofold:1) Describe the use of antipsychotic treatments in ambulatory patients suffering from schizophrenia in Belgium.2) Evaluate to which extend antipsychotic treatment prescribing patterns are in accordance with published treatment guidelines. METHOD: A cross-sectional survey was carried out in 16 Belgian hospitals selected from a sample of 67 hospitals. The hospitals were equally distributed between the north and south part of the country and were representative of Belgian practice. During 2 months, participating psychiatrists were asked to record the medication use as well as demographic parameters of all consecutive ambulatory patients seen at their consultation or attending a day-hospital. Data concerning 1000 ambulatory patients with schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder were collected. RESULTS: In Belgium, the use of atypical antipsychotics is frequent (69%) in ambulatory patients with schizophrenia. In the overall sample, 73% receive only one antipsychotic drug. The majority of patients are treated with drugs of only one antipsychotic drug group, either first- typical (29.8%) or second-generation, atypical antipsychotics (53.2%). 15.8% of patients combine different types of antipsychotics. Antipsychotic dosing is adequate for the majority of patients but about one fifth receives a higher than recommended dose as per package inserts. Polypharmacy remains within reasonable limits. The use of concomitant medication varies according the antipsychotic treatment: patients who take second-generation antipsychotics only, receive the least additional drugs. CONCLUSION: Atypical antipsychotics appear to be the first line treatment for schizophrenic psychosis. Psychiatrists working with ambulatory patients are well aware of treatment guidelines and follow them quite adequately. [less ▲]

Rosemaryite, ideally NaMnFe(3+)AI(PO4)(3), has been collected in the Buranga pegmatite, Rwanda. A single-crystal structure refinement was performed to R-1 = 4.01 %, in the P2(1)/n space group, with a = 12.001(2), b = 12.396(1), c = 6.329(1) angstrom, beta 114.48(1)degrees, Vol. = 856.9(2) angstrom(3), Z = 4. The crystal structure and cation distributions are similar to those of ferrorosemaryite, NaFe2+Fe3+Al(PO4)(3), and qingheiite, Na2MnMgAl(PO4)(3), but aluminium predominantly occurs in the M(2a) site, not in the M(2b) site as observed in ferrowyllieite, Na2Fe22+Al(PO4)(3). The topologies of the X(1a) and X(1b) crystallographic sites are identical to those found in ferrorosemaryite, and correspond to a distorted octahedron and to a distorted cube, respectively. The [7+1]-coordinated X(2) site is a very distorted gable disphenoid, similar to the A(2)' site of the alluaudite structure. Mossbauer spectra have been obtained from 4.2 to 295 K, and fitted with a model including two Fe3+ and two Fe2+ doublets. The Fe2+ component corresponding to 2/3 of the Fe2+ spectral area and having a smaller quadrupole splitting of 2.63 mm/s at 15 K, is assigned to the Fe2+ on the M(2a) site, and the Fe2+ component with the larger quadrupole splitting of 3.17 mm/s at 15 K, is assigned to the Fe2+ on the M(1) site. Fe3+ is located only at the M(2a) and M(2b) sites, and the Fe3+ component corresponding to 3/4 of the Fe3+ and exhibiting the larger quadrupole spitting of 0.77 mm/s at 15 K, is most likely associated with Fe3+ on the M(2b) site. The infrared spectrum of rosemaryite shows absorption bands at 3450 and 1624 cm(-1), bands that arise from the vibrational modes of H2O and confirm the presence of water in the channels of the wyllieite structure. A comparison of both the Mossbauer spectra and structural data of rosemaryite with those of other phosphates of the alluaudite and wyllieite groups, is also presented. [less ▲]

After an initial positive response to anti-androgen treatment, prostate cancer (PCa) cells usually become hormone-refractory in spite of their persistent expression of the androgen receptor (AR). Overexpression of tyrosine kinase receptors in androgen-deprived PCa cells, such as those of the EGF receptor (EGFR) family, may be responsible for AR activation and growth of androgen-deprived tumours. Our goal is to understand the control of the expression of the EGFR family members by androgens in PCa. Hormone response was compared in hormone-sensitive LNCaP and hormone-insensitive DU145 PCa cell lines. These cells do not express ErbB4. EGFR, erbB2 and erbB3 protein half-life is much longer in DU145 than in LNCaP cells grown in complete medium. Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) modulates EGFR and erbB2 transcript and protein levels only in LNCaP cells. ErbB3 is not an androgen-responsive gene. EGFR mRNA and protein levels are increased while erbB2 mRNA and protein levels are decreased after DHT treatment of cells cultured in steroid-deprived medium. ErbB2 mRNA and protein levels are increased in LNCaP cells following DHT withdrawal. In order to understand the mechanisms by which androgens control the expression of EGFR and ERBB2 genes, half lifes of the corresponding mRNAs and proteins were compared in cells grown in presence or absence of DHT. The effect of DHT on EGFR gene expression is complex. Indeed, DHT stabilizes the protein. Moreover, a superinduction of EGFR mRNA was observed in cells treated with cycloheximide (CHX) before addition of the hormone, suggesting an effect on transcript stability. In contrast, erbB2 mRNA and protein stability was not affected by DHT. CHX treatment for 2h before addition of DHT suppresses the androgen-induced down-regulation of erbB2 mRNA levels. In summary, androgen-mediated regulation of EGFR and ERBB2 genes expression is complex. DHT influences EGFR gene transcription, mRNA and protein stability. DHT does not affect erbB2 mRNA and protein stability but acts indirectly on transcription. Current experiments are undertaken to verify these observations by Chromatin-IP experiments on both genes promoters. [less ▲]

A functional ANOVA analysis of the thermal dissociation of RNA hybridized to DNA microarrays was used to improve discrimination between two soil microbial communities. Following hybridization of in vitro transcribed 16S rRNA derived from uncontaminated and 2,4,6- trinitrotoluene contaminated soils to an oligonucleotide microarray containing group- and species-specific perfect match (PM) probes and mismatch (MM) variants, thermal dissociation was used to analyze the nucleic acid bound to each PM-MM probe set. Functional ANOVA of the dissociation curves generally discriminated PM-MM probe sets when Td values (temperature at 50% probe-target dissociation) could not. Maximum discrimination for many PM and MM probes often occurred at temperatures greater than theTd. Comparison of signal intensities measured prior to dissociation analysis from hybridizations of the two soil samples revealed significant differences in domain-, group-, and species-specific probes. Functional ANOVA showed significantly different dissociation curves for 11 PM probes when hybridizations from the two soil samples were compared, even though initial signal intensities for 3 of the 11 did not vary.
