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 ▲]

BACKGROUND: We investigated the feeding ecology and habitat use of 32 harbour porpoises by-caught in 4 localities along the Scandinavian coast from the North Sea to the Barents Sea using time-integrative markers: stable isotopes (delta13C, delta15N) and trace elements (Zn, Cu, Fe, Se, total Hg and Cd), in relation to habitat characteristics (bathymetry) and geographic position (latitude). RESULTS: Among the trace elements analysed, only Cd, with an oceanic specific food origin, was found to be useful as an ecological tracer. All other trace elements studied were not useful, most likely because of physiological regulation and/or few specific sources in the food web. The delta13C, delta15N signatures and Cd levels were highly correlated with each other, as well as with local bathymetry and geographic position (latitude). Variation in the isotopic ratios indicated a shift in harbour porpoise's feeding habits from pelagic prey species in deep northern waters to more coastal and/or demersal prey in the relatively shallow North Sea and Skagerrak waters. This result is consistent with stomach content analyses found in the literature. This shift was associated with a northward Cd-enrichment which provides further support to the Cd 'anomaly' previously reported in polar waters and suggests that porpoises in deep northern waters include Cd-contaminated prey in their diet, such as oceanic cephalopods. CONCLUSION: As stable isotopes and Cd provide information in the medium and the long term respectively, the spatial variation found, shows that harbour porpoises experience different ecological regimes during the year along the Scandinavian coasts, adapting their feeding habits to local oceanographic conditions, without performing extensive migration.

The presence of hyperferritinemia has to rule out acquired causes such as chronic inflammatory disorders, hemolytic anemia, liver diseases as hepatitis B or C, alcohol abuse and non alcoholic fatty liver disease, specially in patients with normal transferrine saturation. Genetic testing for hemochromatosis is systematically indicated in all patients with elevated transferrine saturation. When an iron overload is demonstrated in the absence of these classic causes, second-line genetic testing should be considered to exclude non HFE hemochromatosis. The aim of this paper is to propose a practical algorithm in the diagnosis of hyperferritinemia and to precise the diagnostic and therapeutic management of genetic hemochromatosis. [less ▲]

Heterozygotes for Robertsonian translocations have usually a normal phenotype but show variable decrease in fertility. In humans, meiotic segregation studies carried out in male carriers reveal a majority of balanced spermatozoa. The rate of unbalanced segregation products appears higher in females than in males, but the number of human oocytes analysed so far remains limited (about 100). The occurrence of the t(1;29) translocation in several cattle breeds makes bovines an interesting animal model to study the meiotic segregation in female carrier of Robertsonian translocations. The aim of our project is thus to assess the rates of unbalanced oocytes produced by four cows and to compare these values with those obtained in bulls carriers of the same translocation. The superstimulated cows were subjected to twenty um pick up (OPU) sessions. Dual colour whole chromosome painting probes for BTA1 and 29 were hybridized on oocytes preparations. To date, 649 oocytes have been matured in vitro and 500 successfully spread. Among the 266 oocytes analysed by FISH so far: 201 (75,5%) are balanced, including 105 translocated and 96 normal, 55 are diploid (20.7%), and 10 unbalanced (3.8%). The proportion of balanced oocytes is lower than the average proportion of balanced spermatozoa estimated for two heterozygous bulls (97.1%). This difference is essentially due to a higher rate of diploid oocytes (20.7% vs 0.04% diploid spermatozoa). The origin of observed differences in the segregation profiles of the two sexes, as well as the practical implications of these results for genetic counselling and cattle breeding are discussed.

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 ▲]

Arterial hypertension is a significant risk factor for cardiovascular disease, proportional to the blood pressure level. Treating hypertension reduces the risk. Until recently, beta-blockers were considered as a first line class for hypertension management. The British Hypertension Society has recently pronounced that using beta-blockers as first line antihypertensive therapy is no good choice since these agents are less protective than other antihypertensive classes against cardiovascular disorders and diabetes mellitus, especially when used in association with diuretics.
