The erythrocyte, as an oxygen carrier, is submitted to areas where oxidative stress is important. The maintenance of the structure and fluidity of its membrane is essential to its function. Indeed, oxygen must diffuse through the membrane and the deformability of the cell is essential to its progression through capillaries. The structure and, as a consequence, the fluidity of the membrane influence these properties. The red blood cell presents antioxydant capacities, but in some cases, free radical production is increased and exceeds antiradical defences leading to irreversible defects of the membrane, and, as a consequence, of its function. Horse erythrocyte seems to be more sensitive to oxidative stress than other species and resulting hemorheological changes could have tissular and organic consequences. [less ▲]

Disorders of the phosphocalcic metabolism are frequent in dialysis patients. Such disorders are difficult to treat and have negative impact on bone health, but also on cardiovascular mortality. Hyperphosphoremia is a strong predictor of cardiovascular mortality. New phosphate binders are now available in Belgium. A new molecule acting on the calcium receptor of the parathyroid glands is able to control secondary and tertiary hyperparathyroidism in dialysis patients. These new therapies, specific for dialysis patients, will be reviewed in this article. [less ▲]

Two tripodal alcohols, viz., 1,1,1-tris(hydroxymethyl) ethane and alpha, alpha, alpha-tris(hydroxymethyl) toluene were converted by an efficient multi-step pathway involving azide formation into the corresponding tris(iminophosphorane) scaffolds bearing cyclopentyl (Cp) or phenyl groups on their phosphorus atoms, R-C(CH2-N] PR'(3))(3) (R Me or Ph, R'=Cp or Ph). The synthesis of some representative transition-metal complexes of Cu(I), Cu(II), Ni(II), and Pd(II) bearing these new tridentate ligands is also reported. (C) 2007 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

From 1994 to 2004, Hill's Pet Nutrition received 4495 canine (65%) and feline (35%) uroliths from Benelux veterinary practitioners. They were sent to the Minnesota Urolith Center, USA for analysis. In 1994, 110 uroliths were analysed - 85% from dogs - and in 2003, 1067 uroliths were analysed - 59% from dogs. During this period, substantial changes were observed in composition. In 1994, 77% of the cats had uroliths composed of struvite, and 12% had uroliths composed of calcium oxalate. In 2003, feline uroliths were composed of 32% struvite, and 61% calcium oxalate. The same evolution was observed in the dogs. In 1994, 51% of canine uroliths were composed of struvite, and 33% of calcium oxalate. In 2003, 40% had struvite uroliths, and 46% had calcium oxalate uroliths. A significant effect of the size, the breed, and the gender were noticed in the dogs. The mean age of uroliths appearance was 7.3 years in the dogs and 7.2 years in the cats. The findings are similar to those previously published in the USA. [less ▲]

The adaptor protein missing-in-metastasis (MIM) contains independent F- and G-actin binding domains, consisting, respectively, of an N-terminal 250 aa IRSp53/MIM homology domain (IMD) and a C-terminal WASP-homology domain 2 (WH2). We determined the crystal structures of MIM's IMD and that of its WH2 bound to actin. The IMD forms a dimer, with each subunit folded as an antiparallel three-helix bundle. This fold is related to that of the BAR domain. Like the BAR domain, the IMD has been implicated in membrane binding. Yet, comparison of the structures reveals that the membrane binding surfaces of the two domains have opposite curvatures, which may determine the type of curvature of the interacting membrane. The WH2 of MIM is longer than the prototypical WH2, interacting with all four subdomains of actin. We characterize a similar WH2 at the C terminus of IRSp53 and propose that in these two proteins WH2 performs a scaffolding function. [less ▲]

Erlotinib is an inhibitor of the tyrosine-kinase domain of the epidermal growth factor receptor-1 (EGFR). This drug is used to treat some solid cancers, particularly advanced non-small-cell lung carcinoma. Similar to other EGFR inhibitors, erlotinib is responsible for a series of skin adverse reactions, particularly acneiform lesions. We described the incidental effect of erlotinib on actinic keratoses which became markedly inflamed and showed partial regression. Inflammation appeared to spontaneously decrease while on erlotinib treatment. This reaction in the skin neoplasm is perhaps a visible and accessible model for predicting the effect in the deep-seated neoplasm targeted by the drug. [less ▲]

We investigated the oxygen (O2) uptake of equine articular chondrocytes to assess their reactions to anoxia/re-oxygenation. They were cultured under 5% or 21% gas phase O2 and at glucose concentrations of 0, 1.0 or 4.5 g/L in the culture medium (n = 3). Afterwards, the O2 consumption rate of the chondrocytes was monitored (oxymetry) before and after an anoxia period of 25 min. The glucose consumption and lactate release were measured at the end of the re-oxygenation period. The chondrocytes showed a minimal O2 consumption rate, which was hardly changed by anoxia. Independently from the O2 tension, glucose uptake by the cells was about 30% of the available culture medium glucose, thus higher for cells at 4.5 g/L glucose (n = 3). Lactate release was also independent from O2 tension, but lower for cells at 4.5 g/L glucose (n = 3). Our observations indicated that O2 consumption by equine chondrocytes was very low despite a functional mitochondrial respiratory chain, and nearly insensitive to anoxia/re-oxygenation. But the chondrocytes metabolism was modified by an excess of O2 and glucose. [less ▲]

We describe the case of a 29 year old patient who presented severe myalgias and asthenia for 3 months. First biological assessment revealed muscular lysis and raised transaminases. The following complementary screening showed major hypothyroidism with the presence of anti-microsomes antibodies, a carpian canal syndrome and a left ventricular systolic dysfunction. A diagnosis of hypothyroidic rhabdomyolysis consecutive to a Hashimoto disease was then mash. Patient was treated by hormonal thyroid substitution with a progressive improvement of muscular symptoms to complete recovery, and a concomitant normalization of cardiac and thyroid functions.
