The goal of this study is to apply a “multisite” crystal plasticity model to the prediction of texture evolution in zirconium deformed at high temperature. The model under consideration is an extension of the elastic-viscoplastic “multisite model” proposed by Delannay et al. [2005] which has been adapted to account for a new type of grain interaction (Van Houtte et al. [2005]). Predictions of the model are compared to experimental data. Two forming processes are considered: sheet rolling (Lebensohn et al. [1994]) and the torsion of a cylindrical bar (Sanchez et al. [2001]). [less ▲]

Background: Ineffective physicians' communication skills have detrimental consequences for patients and their relatives, such as insufficient detection of psychological disturbances, dissatisfaction with care, poor compliance, and increased risks of litigation for malpractice. These ineffective communication skills also contribute to everyday stress, lack of job satisfaction, and burnout among physicians. Literature shows that communication skills training programs may significantly improve physicians' key communication skills, contributing to improvements in patients' satisfaction with care and physicians' professional satisfaction. This paper describes a Belgian Interuniversity Curriculum (BIC) theoretical roots, principles, and techniques developed for junior physicians specializing in various disciplines dealing with cancer patients. Curriculum description: The 40-h training focuses on two domains: stress management skills and communication skills with cancer patients and their relatives. The teaching method is learner-centered and includes a cognitive, behavioral, and affective approach. The cognitive approach aims to improve physicians' knowledge and skills on the two domains cited. The behavioral approach offers learners the opportunity to practice these appropriate skills through practical exercises and role plays. The affective approach allows participants to express attitudes and feelings that communicating about difficult issues evoke. Such an intensive course seems to be necessary to facilitate the transfer of learned skills in clinical practice. Conclusions: The BIC is the first attempt to bring together a stress management training course and a communication training course that could lead not only to communication skills improvements but also to burnout prevention.

Toll-like receptors (TLR) are an important component in the innate immune response to a wide variety of pathogens. Recently, a series of studies has addressed the hypothesis that TLR4 also participates in the host innate response against respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), the leading cause of lower respiratory tract infections in infants and young children. In most of the studies available, RSV, which is not a natural pathogen of mice, has been systematically used in mouse models of human bronchiolitis, with conflicting results. Pneumonia virus of mice (PVM), a member of the pneumovirus genus, shares many similarities with RSV. The serological and structural relationships that exist between them suggest that the immune response to these viruses may be similar in their respective natural hosts. To determine the role of TLR4 in host defense against PVM, TLR4-competent and TLR4-deficient mice were intranasally infected with PVM. Variation of body weight, pulmonary function values, histopathology, and pulmonary viral loads were analyzed. None of the investigated clinical, functional, histological and virological parameters was different between strains, which demonstrates that the sensitivity of the mouse to its natural pneumovirus infection is independent of the presence or absence of TLR4 sensing.

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 ▲]
