SUMMARY: This analysis was conducted to assess the effect of high versus lower doses of ibandronate on nonvertebral fractures. The results were adjusted for clinical fracture, age, and bone density. The treatment effect was dose-dependent. Higher doses of ibandronate significantly reduced the risk of nonvertebral fractures more effectively compared with lower doses. INTRODUCTION: The objective of this study was to assess the efficacy of different doses of ibandronate on nonvertebral fractures in a pooled analysis. METHODS: Eight randomized trials of ibandronate were reviewed for inclusion. Alternative definitions of high versus low doses based on annual cumulative exposure (ACE) were explored. A time-to-event analysis was conducted using Kaplan-Meier methodology. Hazard ratios (HR) were derived using Cox regression and adjusted for covariates. RESULTS: Combining higher ACE doses of > or = 10.8 mg (150 mg once monthly, 3 mg i.v. quarterly, and 2 mg i.v. every 2 months) versus ACE doses of 5.5 mg, from two trials, resulted in an HR 0.62 (95% CI 0.396-0.974, p = 0.038). There was a dose-response trend with increasing ACE doses (7.2-12 mg) versus ACE of 5.5 mg. CONCLUSIONS: A dose-response effect on nonvertebral fractures was observed when comparing high with low ACE doses. A significant reduction in nonvertebral fractures was noted when pooling data from trials using ACE doses of > or = 10.8 mg versus ACE < or = 7.2 mg; and with ACE > or = 10.8 mg versus ACE of 5.5 mg (38% reduction). Higher ibandronate dose levels (150 mg monthly or 3 mg i.v. quarterly) significantly reduced nonvertebral fracture risk in postmenopausal women. [less ▲]

Démêler l’écheveau des démarches entreprises par certains Wallons pour trouver, de 1940 à 1944, une oreille française sensible à leurs rêves d’annexion s’apparente à une enquête policière rétrospective. Au fil de documents restés longtemps enfouis apparaît toute l’ambiguïté d’une francophilie persistante et exacerbée, alors même que les "autorités françaises" auxquelles les militants wallons tentent désespérément de se raccrocher sont, elles aussi, ballottées au gré du contexte politico-militaire. On trouve ainsi le très peu consistant Mouvement National Wallon, adepte de l’annexion du nord de la France à la Wallonie par la grâce allemande et courtisan d’un petit parti "ultra" de la collaboration parisienne. Il est vertueusement dénoncé à Vichy par l’un des siens, maréchaliste et défenseur de l’intégrité territoriale française. Pour l’activité de Georges Thone, il est possible, grâce à des archives inédites – fonds peu exploités du Quai d’Orsay et papiers privés permettant de pallier certaines lacunes d’une valise providentielle –, de reconstituer la genèse du "Bureau Sarrien" et de mieux cerner l’intérêt qu’avait Vichy à garder aussi longtemps dans son jeu la carte wallonne. Jadis rival et désormais compère de Thone, l’abbé Mahieu continuera à battre le fer vichyste tant qu’il restera chaud ou tiède, mais envisagera dès l’été 1942 de lui adjoindre un fer gaulliste, hypothèse de travail qui inquiète autant sinon plus le gouvernement belge de Londres, ses diplomates et la Sûreté de l’État. Le très mythifié voyage de François Simon à Alger début 1944 et ses tentatives pour être reçu par le général de Gaulle, l’appui temporaire qu’il trouve dans certaines officines du Renseignement français et les réactions immédiates des Belges de Londres constituent le quatrième volet d’une activité wallonne débordante. Les documents retrouvés permettent assurément de décrire le "rattachisme" ou "réunionisme" comme ayant rencontré auprès des sphères dirigeantes françaises, qu’elles siègent à Vichy, Londres ou Alger, de la curiosité, certes, mais surtout un attentisme tantôt opportuniste, tantôt méfiant.

The aim of the current study was to describe the use of a pool of different antisera raised against pregnancy-associated glycoproteins (PAGs; purified from both ovine and caprine placentas) for early pregnancy diagnosis in ovine species. Sixty-three pluriparous Sarda ewes (Ovis aries) were synchronized. Blood samples were withdrawn on Days 18, 24, 26, 28, 30, and 50 after mating. These samples were assayed for progesterone (radioimmunoassay [RIA] including an extraction step) and for pregnancy-associated glycoproteins (RIA-706 and RIA-srPool). Progesterone concentrations were under 1.0ng/mL in all nonpregnant Sarda ewes. In pregnant ewes, mean progesterone concentrations ranged from 2.4ng/mL (Day 24, single pregnancies) to 4.4ng/mL (Day 28, multiple pregnancies). During all periods of examination, PAGs remained lower than 0.8ng/mL in nonpregnant ewes. On Day 18 of pregnancy, PAG concentrations could be detected in 26 of 43 (60.5%) and in 41 of 43 (95.3%) pregnant ewes using the RIA-706 and RIA-srPool methods, respectively. From Day 24 to Day 50, using both RIA methods, PAGs could be detected in all pregnant ewes. On Day 24, the best threshold for pregnancy diagnosis was obtained by use of RIA-srPool, maximal concentration in nonpregnant ewes being 0.3ng/mL and minimal concentration in pregnant ewes being 4.8ng/mL. In general, progesterone and PAG concentrations were higher in multiple pregnancies than in single pregnancies. However, because of large individual variations, single pregnancies could not be differentiated from multiple pregnancies [less ▲]

À partir des changements que connaît le monde des sciences de la gestion, nous avons analysé l’uniformisation des critères de publication d’une part, le développement de « nouveaux » discours d’autre part. Ces éléments ne sont pas indépendants d’une situation globale de concurrence, de recherche d’excellence et de rentabilité. Ils contribuent à redéfinir les valeurs, les règles et les normes de fonctionnement du champ scientifique, les signes de reconnaissance, les positions des acteurs et leur mode de relations. Nous avons souhaité montrer les influences extérieures et les forces internes qui contribuent à expliquer cette situation. [less ▲]

The mechanisms driving the air–sea exchange of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the North Sea are investigated using the three-dimensional coupled physical–biogeochemical model ECOHAM (ECOlogical model, HAMburg). We validate our simulations using field data for the years 2001–2002 and identify the controls of the air–sea CO2 flux for two locations representative for the North Sea’s biogeochemical provinces. In the seasonally stratified northern region, net CO2 uptake is high (2:06molm 2 a 1) due to high net community production (NCP) in the surface water. Overflow production releasing semi labile dissolved organic carbon needs to be considered for a realistic simulation of the low dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC) concentrations observed during summer. This biologically driven carbon drawdown outcompetes the temperature-driven rise in CO2 partial pressure (pCO2) during the productive season. In contrast, the permanently mixed southern region is a weak net CO2 source (0:78molm 2 a 1). NCP is generally low except for the spring bloom because remineralization parallels primary production. Here, the pCO2 appears to be controlled by temperature. [less ▲]

Trichome-based tomato resistance offers the potential to reduce pesticide use, but its compatibility with biological control remains poorly understood. We evaluated Episyrphus balteatus De Geer (Diptera, Syrphidae), an efficient aphidophagous predator, as a potential biological control agent of Myzus persicae Sulzer (Hemiptera, Aphididae) on trichome-bearing tomato cultivars. Episyrphus balteatus’ foraging and oviposition behavior, as well as larval mobility and aphid accessibility, were compared between two tomato cultivars (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill. ‘Moneymaker’ and ‘Roma’) and two other crop plants; broad bean (Vicia faba L.) and potato (Solanum tuberosum L.). Hoverfly adults landed and laid more eggs on broad beans than on three species of Solanaceae. Hoverfly larval movement was drastically reduced on tomato, and a high proportion of hoverfly larvae fell from the plant before reaching aphid prey. After quantifying trichome abundance on each of these four plants, we suggest that proprieties of the plant surface, specifically trichomes, are a key factor contributing to reduced efficacy of E. balteatus as a biological agent for aphid control on tomatoes.
