Herpes zoster (HZ) results from reactivation of the varicella-zoster virus (VZV), which remains latent in the dorsal root ganglia after varicella. HZ predominantly affects people over 50 years of age without gender distinction, and its incidence increases with age. The most feared complication of HZ is the zoster-associated pains (ZAP), which encompasses the prodromal, concomitant and post-zoster persistent pains. The latter neuralgias are particularly invalidating and notoriously difficult, or even impossible to abate with current therapies. Until now, the best ZAP prevention was achieved by antiviral treatment given during the earliest phase of the eruption. This treatment certainly reduces the duration and intensity of ZAP, but exerts little influence on post-zoster persistent pains. A vaccination boosting the specific anti-VZV immunity in order to decrease the HZ incidence and post-zoster pains appears promising. A recent study performed on 38.546 immunocompetent patients aged over 60 years assessed the efficacy of a single injection of an anti-zoster vaccine (Zostavax). The incidence of HZ and post-zoster pain was decreased by 50% and 66%, respectively. Vaccination could be considered as a valuable option to alleviate the feared complications of HZ. [less ▲]

A laser probing investigation has yielded the lifetimes of the 3s23p41D3d 2G7=2;9=2 metastable doublet states of Ar. The results, obtained with the CRYRING ion storage ring of Stockholm, are 3:0 0:4 and 2:1 0:1 s, respectively. Comparisons with theoretical values calculated with two independenttheoretical approaches, i.e., the pseudorelativistic Hartree-Fock method and the multiconfiguration Breit-Pauli approach, have allowed us to establish the unexpected and extraordinary strong contribution of an electric octupole (E3) transition to the ground state, in addition to the M1 decay channels to the 3d 2;4F states and the E2 contributions to the 4s 2P, 2D states.

Wavelengths and transition probabilities have been calculated for the n=4, Δn=0 allowed transitions in the heavy Cu-, Zn-, Ga- and Ge-like ions with Z=70–92. Fully relativistic multiconfiguration Dirac-Fock (MCDF) computations were carried out.

La fièvre catarrhale ovine (FCO) a été identifiée au Nord de l’Europe le 14 août 2006. L’Allemagne, la Belgique, les Pays-Bas et, dans une moindre mesure, le Grand-Duché de Luxembourg et la France ont été affectés. Le sérotype 8 du virus de la FCO (exotique) a rapidement été identifié ainsi qu’un vecteur, Culicoides dewulfi, une espèce indigène du Nord de l’Europe. La maladie s’est rapidement développée et au 1er février 2007, on recensait 2137 foyers de FCO, toutes espèces de ruminants confondues. Globalement, la maladie a affecté davantage les bovins (54 %) que les ovins (46 %). Les signes cliniques le plus fréquemment observés chez les bovins étaient des lésions sur le museau et la cavité buccale (ulcérations/croûtes), de la salivation et des boiteries chez des animaux adultes. La morbidité et la mortalité animales étaient respectivement de maximum 5 % et 1 %. Les principaux signes cliniques rencontrés chez le mouton étaient également des lésions sur le museau et la cavité buccale (ulcérations/croûtes), de l’amaigrissement et des boiteries. La morbidité et la mortalité animales étaient respectivement de maximum 12 % et 6 %. Les signes cliniques n’étant pas pathognomoniques et le diagnostic différentiel relativement vaste, seul un examen de laboratoire permet de poser un diagnostic de certitude. [less ▲]

The bovine respiratory disease complex (BRDC) can be caused by a number of factors involving the animal, its environment, and the presence of infectious agents. The syndrome can be classified into four grades: Grade 1, subclinical disease; Grade 2, compensated clinical disease; Grade 3, noncompensated clinical disease; and Grade 4, irreversible clinical disease, which threatens the animal's survival. The predisposition of cattle, especially beef calves, to respiratory problems is related to their lack of functional pulmonary hardiness. Selection of breeds that demonstrate adequate pulmonary function and sufficient ventilatory reserve may help in the control of BRDC, but this approach is difficult to implement and slow to produce results. Prophylactic measures, including vaccination programmes and modifying management practices to reduce stress, also have a place in prevention of BRDC. A therapeutic strategy to minimise the economic impact of BRDC includes the use of appropriate antibacterial therapy, modulation of the pulmonary inflammatory reaction, and correction of mechanical disorders. Most cattle affected by BRDC are classified as Grade 3. In these cases, irreversible damage to the lung can only be avoided by simultaneous control of bacterial infection and local inflammation. The basic therapeutic strategy described in this article involves the combination of an antibiotic, such as florfenicol, to act against the relevant pathogens and a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), such as flunixin, to act against the deleterious effects of inflammation [less ▲]

A method for solving eddy current problems in two separate steps is developed for global-local analyses with h-conform finite element formulations. An unperturbed problem is first solved in a global mesh excluding additional conductive regions. Its solution gives the sources for a sequence of other problems, perturbed by adding conductive regions. Each problem only requires a new adapted mesh of a local region. The way the local problems and their sources are defined leads to a significant speedup of parameterized analyses, e.g., in optimization and sensitivity analyses. [less ▲]
