Management of diabetes mellitus can be responsible for cutaneous adverse events. For example, lipoatrophy or lipohypertrophy can develop at the site of insulin injections. Lipohypertrophy remains a frequent complication of insulin therapy irrespective of the insulin source and mode of administration. Lipoatrophy at insulin injection sites is considered to be an immune complex-mediated inflammatory lesion; however, it has become a rare event since the advent of human insulin. Nowadays, continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII) using a portable pump and/or injections of insulin analogs with an altered amino acid sequence compared with native insulin may cause lipodystrophy in diabetic patients. Some case reports describe the recovery of lipoatrophy following the use of CSII and/or short-acting insulin analogs. Conversely, exceptional cases of lipoatrophy have occurred in patients receiving lispro insulin analog via CSII. Lipodystrophy reactions remain a potential problem when managing diabetic patients with new insulin therapy technologies. [less ▲]

In this paper, we compare two types of access pricing: a two-part tariff where the fixed part aims to cover (part of) the network’s fixed cost while the variable part covers the network’s usage costs and a single tariff where both the usage and (part of ) the infrastructure costs are covered by a per-unit access charge. We compare how the regulator trades-off the degree of competition induced by the access charges and the network financing. (JEL: L11, L51). [less ▲]

Feeder-free human embryonic stem cell (hESC) culture is associated with the presence of mesenchymal-like cells appearing at the periphery of the colonies. The aim of this study was to identify this early differentiation process. Long-term feeder-free hESC cultures using matrigel and conditioned medium from mouse and from human origin revealed that the appearance of mesenchymal-like cells was similar regardless of the conditioned medium used. Standard characterization confirmed the preservation of hESC properties, but the feeder-free cultures could not be maintained longer than 37 passages. The early differentiation process was characterized in the short term after switching hESCs cultured on feeders to feeder-free conditions. Transmission electron microscopy showed an epithelium-like structure inside the hESC colonies, whereas the peripheral cells revealed the acquisition of a rather mesenchymal-like phenotype. Immunochemistry analysis showed that cells at the periphery of the colonies had a negative E-cadherin expression and a positive Vimentin expression, suggesting an epithelial–mesenchymal transition (EMT). Nuclear staining of ß-catenin, positive N-cadherin and negative Connexin 43 expression were also found in the mesenchymal-like cell population. After RT–PCR analysis, Slug and Snail, both EMT-related transcription factors, were detected as up-regulated in the mesenchymal-like cell population. Taken together, our data suggest that culturing hESCs in feeder-free conditions enhances an early differentiation process identified as an EMT. [less ▲]

The purification of animal insulin preparations and the use of human recombinant insulin have markedly reduced the incidence but not completely suppressed the occurrence of insulin allergy manifestations. Advances in technologies concerning the mode of delivery of insulin, i.e. continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII), and the use of insulin analogues, resulting from the alteration in the amino acid sequence of the native insulin molecule, may influence the immunogenicity and antigenicity of native insulin. Instead of increasing allergy reactions, CSII has been reported to represent a successful alternative treatment in diabetic patients presenting local or generalized allergy to insulin or other components (zinc, protamine) of conventional treatment. Most recent reports concern CSII-treated patients using short-acting insulin analogues (essentially insulin lispro), although the precise role of these insulin analogues remains unclear as allergy to them has also been described. Finally, data on antigenicity and immunogenicity of long-acting insulin analogues (glargine, detemir), which may mimic the basal insulin delivery with CSII, remain scarce at present. [less ▲]

UVES and HIRES high-resolution spectra of Comet 9P/Tempel 1 are used to investigate the impact and rotational light curves of various species with a view toward building a simple model of the distribution and activity of the sources. The emission by OH, NH, CN, C[SUB]3[/SUB], CH, C[SUB]2[/SUB], NH[SUB]2[/SUB], and OI, are analyzed, as well as the light scattered by the dust. It is found that a simple model reproduces fairly well the impact light curves of all species combining the production of the observed molecules and the expansion of the material throughout the slit. The impact light curves are consistent with velocities of 400 600 m/s. Their modeling requires a three-step dissociation sequence ``Grand-Parent --> Parent --> Daughter'' to produce the observed molecules. The rotational light curve for each species is explained in terms of a single model with three sources. The dust component can however not easily be explained that way. [less ▲]

The present paper is reviewing the current place of weight-reducing drugs in the overall management of overweight/obese subjects, especially those with metabolic disorders and type 2 diabetes. Anti-obesity agents should be carefully evaluated in long-term (1-2 years) randomized controlled trials. Recent systematic reviews and meta-analysis assessed both the safety and efficacy of the two drugs currently used in the treatment of obesity, i.e. orlistat, a gastric and pancreatic lipase inhibitor that reduces fat absorption from the gut, and sibutramine, a combined norepinephrine and serotonin reuptake inhibitor that regulates food intake. Rimonabant, a new compound acting as selective blocker of CB1 receptors of the endocannabinoid system, raises much interest as it promotes weight reduction by a central effect and also exerts peripheral effects targeting cardiometabolic risk. Special attention will be paid to beneficial metabolic effects resulting from (even moderate) weight loss and to possible additional effects beyond weight reduction. [less ▲]
