We performed analytical validation of the new version of the Liaison N-Tact PTH (parathormone) assay according to NCCLS guidelines and compared this new generation of reagent with the Roche Elecsys PTH assay. We showed that this new version is a sensitive and precise method with good recovery. Significant carryover was observed, but with limited clinical implications. We demonstrated that the new version of the Liaison PTH is in reasonably good agreement with the Roche Elecsys PTH assay, and as we observed no differences in a hemodialyzed population, moving from one method to the other should not affect the daily follow-up of patients. However, one should be cautious with the highest values (> 500 pg/mL). We established reference intervals of 12-54 pg/mL for the Liaison and 14-52 pg/mL for the Elecsys assay. [less ▲]

Le risque de pénurie en eau au Maroc s’accroît sous la pression conjuguée de la sécheresse et de la demande domestique et industrielle. Il doit être pris en compte dans toute gestion de l’eau aussi bien au niveau de l’agriculture pluviale qu’irriguée. Les stratégies pour réduire le risque de sécheresse agricole, peuvent être classées en trois catégories : i) en agriculture irriguée, économiser l’eau en réduisant les pertes et en améliorant l’efficience d’utilisation de l’eau \; ii) en zones forestières et pastorales, bénéficier de l’eau perdue actuellement par le processus d’évaporation en développant les écosystèmes pastoraux et fruitiers \; iii) en agriculture pluviale, augmenter la productivité par les techniques de conservation de l’eau qui consistent à améliorer la collecte, le stockage et l’utilisation de l’eau au niveau de l’exploitation. Des mesures publiques additionnelles sont nécessaires, principalement les systèmes d’alerte précoce incluant la prévision saisonnière du climat et la prévision agro-météorologique, pour promouvoir l’investissement dans les environnements secs et mettre à la disposition des agriculteurs et des pouvoirs publics des outils d’aide à la décision. L’adoption d’une gestion efficiente de l’eau de pluie et d’irrigation permettra d’assurer la sécurité alimentaire et de libérer l’eau pour les besoins non agricoles. [less ▲]

OBJECTIVE: Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) cells develop chemoresistance over time associated with defects in apoptosis pathway. Novel treatment strategies are required to overcome resistance of cells to commonly used agents. The effects of valproic acid (VPA), an antiepileptic drug with histone deacetylase inhibitory activity, on mononuclear cells isolated from 40 CLL patients were evaluated. METHODS: CLL cells were treated with increasing doses of VPA (0.5, 1, 2, and 5 mM). The mode of cytotoxic drug action was determined by annexin binding, DNA fragmentation, and caspase activation. RESULTS: Exposure of CLL cells to VPA resulted in dose-dependent cytotoxicity and apoptosis in the 40 CLL patients. VPA treatment induced apoptotic changes in CLL cells including phosphatidylserine externalization and DNA fragmentation. The mean apoptotic rates were similar between IgV(H) mutated and unmutated patients, the latter presenting a more aggressive clinical course. VPA induced apoptosis via the extrinsic pathway involving engagement of the caspase-8-dependent cascade. Although CLL cells are commonly resistant to death receptor-induced apoptosis, VPA significantly increased sensitivity of leukemic cells to tumor necrosis factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL) and led to downregulation of c-FLIP (L) expression. VPA caused no potentialization of TRAIL-induced apoptosis on normal B cells. In addition, VPA overcame the prosurvival effects of bone marrow stromal cells. CONCLUSION: These findings point out that the combination of TRAIL and VPA, at clinically relevant concentration, may be valuable in the treatment of CLL. [less ▲]

Over the last decades, significant advances were make in basic research as concerns the malignant transformation of normal cells. As a result, new targets for treatment were identified. "Targeted therapies" indicates that treatments are directed against specific molecular targets that play a major role in the activation of cell division and in the growth and dissemination of tumors. In particular, targeted therapies were developed against epithelial growth factor receptors and angiogenesis. We can expect specifise therapies against many other targets in the near future. Several drugs have obtained a marketing license. Predictive factors for tumor response and long term outcome should be developed for a better selection of the patient population who will benefit from these treatments. New imaging techniques are under development in order to assess the molecular response to these new approaches. [less ▲]

The influence of annealing atmosphere oxidation potential on the surface condition of an industrial dual-phase steel alloyed with 2 wt% Mn and 0.3 wt% mo has been studied by galvanizing simulation, with particular attention towards alloying element segregation, the occurrence of selective oxidation of the surfaces immediately prior to hot-dip galvanizing and their effect on reactive wetting and coating adherence. The surface chemistry and morphology prior to dipping have been analyzed in detail, along with their evolution during annealing, and the coating quality and chemistry were characterized and interpreted in relation to the surface condition prior to dipping.

The Deep Impact mission succeeded in excavating inner materials from the nucleus of Comet 9P/Tempel 1 on 2005 July 04 (at 05:52 UT). Comet 9P/Tempel 1 is one of Jupiter family short period comets, which might originate in the Kuiper belt region in the solar nebula. In order to characterize the comet and to support the mission from the ground-based observatory, optical high-dispersion spectroscopic observations were carried out with the echelle spectrograph (UVES) mounted on the 8-m telescope VLT (UT2) before and after the Deep Impact event. Ortho-to-para abundance ratios (OPRs) of cometary ammonia were determined from the NH[SUB]2[/SUB] emission spectra. The OPRs of ammonia on July 3.996 UT and 4.997 UT were derived to be 1.28±0.07 (nuclear spin temperature: T[SUB][/SUB]=24±2 K) and 1.26±0.08 (T[SUB][/SUB]=25±2 K), respectively. There is no significant change between before and after the impact. Actually, most materials ejected from the impact site could have moved away from the nucleus on July 4.997 UT, about 17 h after the impact. However, a small fraction of the ejected materials might remain in the slit of UVES instrument at that time because an excess of about 20% in the NH[SUB]2[/SUB] emission flux is observed above the normal activity level was found [Manfroid, J., Hutsemékers, D., Jehin, E., Cochran, A.L., Arpigny, C., Jackson, W.M., Meech, K.J., Schulz, R., Zucconi, J.-M., 2007. Icarus. This issue]. If the excess of NH[SUB]2[/SUB] on July 04.997 UT was produced from icy materials excavated by the Deep Impact, then an upper-limit of the ammonia OPR would be 1.75 (T[SUB][/SUB]>17 K) for those materials. On the other hand, the OPR of ammonia produced from the quiescent sources was similar to that of the Oort cloud comets observed so far. This fact may imply that physical conditions where cometary ices formed were similar between Comet 9P/Tempel 1 and the Oort cloud comets. [less ▲]
