The major part of the Hanonet Formation is deposited on a mixed siliciclastic– carbonate detrital ramp, whereas the top is dominated by carbonate-rimmed shelf-related sedimentation. The transition corresponds roughly to the Eifelian–Givetian boundary. This work is based on two stratigraphic sections located in the southern part of the Dinant Synclinorium. Petrographic study leads to the definition of 11 microfacies, which demonstrate important sedimentological differences existing between the sections. A curve showing microfacies evolution is interpreted in terms of changing bathymetry. An environmental model depicts the lateral transition from a multiclinal carbonate ramp (to the east) to a forereef setting (to the west). Magnetic susceptibility was used to establish accurate stratigraphic correlations between the two sections. It also leads to an appreciation of the relative importance of eustatic sea-level change and local sedimentation rate. The combined interpretation of the microfacies curves and the magnetic susceptibility provides a new view of the sedimentary dynamics of the studied sections and, in a more general way, a better understanding of the processes responsible for magnetic susceptibility variations in carbonate rocks.

Stricturing subocclusive small bowel Crohn's disease (CD) is often an indication for surgery. We embarked on an open label pilot study to assess the safety and efficacy of infliximab in patients with stricturing subocclusive CD. Patients and methods : A cohort of patients with a documented and symptomatic small bowel stricture caused by CD was studied. Patients had to be refractory to corticosteroids and/or immunosuppressives, and not in need for immediate surgery. The patients were treated by a single infusion of infliximab 5 mg/kg and followed up at w1, w2, w4 and w8. Results : After the 6(th) patients, the study was prematurely discontinued because the predefined safety thresholds of more than 2 surgeries within the first 5 patients was reached. Only two patients completed the 8 weeks study, with a positive response to infliximab and improvement of inflammation confirmed by the CRP and CT scan. Two patients had to be operated early and the last two patients first did well but worsened after one month and were operated 35 and 42 days after infliximab, respectively. No surgical complications occurred in the 4 operated patients. In conclusion, a subset of patients with subocclusive small bowel stricturing CD may benefit from infliximab. [less ▲]

Mutations in the COL1A1 and COL1A2 genes, encoding the proalpha1 and 2 chains of type I collagen, cause osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) or Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) arthrochalasis type. Although the majority of missense mutations in the collagen type I triple helix affect glycine residues in the Gly-Xaa-Yaa repeat, few nonglycine substitutions have been reported. Two arginine-to-cysteine substitutions in the alpha1(I)-collagen chain are associated with classic EDS [R134C (p.R312C)] or autosomal dominant Caffey disease with mild EDS features [R836C (p.R1014C)]. Here we show alpha1(I) R-to-C substitutions in three unrelated patients who developed iliac or femoral dissection in early adulthood. In addition, manifestations of classic EDS in Patient 1 [c.1053C>T; R134C (p.R312C); X-position] or osteopenia in Patients 2 [c.1839C>T; R396C (p.R574C); Y-position] and 3 [c.3396C>T; R915C (p.R1093C); Y-position] are seen. Dermal fibroblasts from the patients produced disulfide-bonded alpha1(I)-dimers in approximately 20% of type I collagen, which were efficiently secreted into the medium in case of the R396C and R915C substitution. Theoretical stability calculations of the collagen type I heterotrimer and thermal denaturation curves of monomeric mutant alpha1(I)-collagen chains showed minor destabilization of the collagen helix. However, dimers were shown to be highly unstable. The R134C and R396C caused delayed procollagen processing by N-proteinase. Ultrastructural findings showed collagen fibrils with variable diameter and irregular interfibrillar spaces, suggesting disturbed collagen fibrillogenesis. Our findings demonstrate that R-to-C substitutions in the alpha1(I) chain may result in a phenotype with propensity to arterial rupture in early adulthood. This broadens the phenotypic range of nonglycine substitutions in collagen type I and has important implications for genetic counseling and follow-up of patients carrying this type of mutation.

Inactivation of the chloride channel cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) causes cystic fibrosis (CF). Although CFTR is expressed in the kidney, no overwhelming renal phenotype has been documented in patients with CF. This study investigated the expression, subcellular distribution, and processing of CFTR in the kidney; used various mouse models to assess the role of CFTR in proximal tubule (PT) endocytosis; and tested the relevance of these findings in patients with CF. The level of CFTR mRNA in mouse kidney approached that found in lung. CFTR was located in the apical area of PT cells, with a maximal intensity in the straight part (S3) of the PT. Fractionation showed that CFTR co-distributed with the chloride/proton exchanger ClC-5 in PT endosomes. Cftr(-/-) mice showed impaired (125)I-beta(2)-microglobulin uptake, together with a decreased amount of the multiligand receptor cubilin in the S3 segment and a significant loss of cubilin and its low molecular weight (LMW) ligands into the urine. Defective receptor-mediated endocytosis was found less consistently in Cftr(DeltaF/DeltaF) mice, characterized by a large phenotypic heterogeneity and moderate versus mice that lacked ClC-5. A significant LMW proteinuria (and particularly transferrinuria) also was documented in a cohort of patients with CF but not in patients with asthma and chronic lung inflammation. In conclusion, CFTR inactivation leads to a moderate defect in receptor-mediated PT endocytosis, associated with a cubilin defect and a significant LMW proteinuria in mouse and human. The magnitude of the endocytosis defect that is caused by CFTR versus ClC-5 loss likely reflects functional heterogeneity along the PT. [less ▲]

Any pruritus occurring in pregnant women may represent a sensorial manifestation unrelated to pregnancy, but it may represent the consequence of a pregnancy-specific dermatosis. This latter group encompass pruritus gravidarum with or without intrahepatic cholestasis, pemphigoid gestationis, polymorphic eruption of pregnancy, prurigo gestationis, acute folliculitis of pregnancy, impetigo herpetiformis and the progesterone auto-immune dermatitis. Fetal risk of morbidity is recognized for pruritus gravidarum with intrahepatic cholestasis, pemphigoid gestationis and impetigo herpetiformis. [less ▲]

The antimony-121 Mossbauer spectra of the Yb14MnSb11 and Eu14MnSb11 Zintl compounds have been measured between 2 or 5 and 300 K. The resulting three-dimensional arrays of the spectral counts, velocity, and temperature have been simultaneously fit with a minimum number of free parameters. These fits yield a 0 Kelvin transferred hyperfine field of 2.9(2) T, a Curie temperature of 57(3) K, and a Mossbauer temperature of 182(2) K for Yb14MnSb11; in this case the transferred field arises solely from the ordering of Mn2+. Because Eu14MnSb11 has both Eu2+ and Mn2+ ions that are magnetically ordered, its antimony-121 Mossbauer spectra are more complex and reveal two magnetic transitions, the first at 92(1) K resulting from the ordering of the Mn 2+ ions and the second at 9.5(1.0) K resulting from the ordering of the Eu2+ ions; the corresponding 0 Kelvin transferred hyperfine fields are 1.3(1) and 3.7(1) T. The antimony-121 isomer shifts yield electronic configurations of 5s(1.74)5p(4.28) and 5s(1.74)5p(4.19) for the average antimony anion in Yb14MnSb11 and Eu14MnSb11, respectively. [less ▲]

Over the last ten years, progress in evidence-based medicine coupled with technological and surgical breakthroughs have deeply changed the management of our patients. Uterine bleeding is the first cause of gynaecological consultation and the intrauterine progestin delivery system as well as new hysteroscopic procedures have optimized the therapeutic approach to this problem. Introduction of magnetic resonance imaging and interventional procedures have improved breast disease diagnosis and management; likewise sentinel node localization, introduction of aromatase and growth factors inhibitors, new radiotherapy procedures and pharmacogenomics, have helped to ameliorate breast cancer treatment. Pelvic surgery has been switching more and more towards laparoscopic procedures not only in the field of benign lesions (eg endometriosis), of surgery of prolapse and incontinence with new prosthetic materials, but also for an improved management of gynaecological cancers.
