We report the case of a 46 XY patient with a disorder of sex differentiation (DSD) caused by an inactivating mutation of the LH receptor. Mutations of genes involved in hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal function are rare but they provide an experience of nature for understanding the physiology and the pathophysiology of gonadotropins actions. There arise from correlation between the phenotypes and genotypes in those unique conditions. Management of this particular patient with no LH activity involves oestrogen replacement therapy to induce breast development together with a gonadectomy due to the risk of gonadoblastoma in streak gonads.

Taking into account its non-invasive, non-destructive character and fast data acquisition, near infrared spectroscopy is more and more integrated in production processes to acquire analytical results. Implementation of a NIR quantitative method is performed using an iterative heuristic approach that will ultimately build a model allowing the prediction of the concentration of the analyte of interest. In this context, the aim of the present study was to develop an innovative approach based on statistical tolerance intervals and the desirability index FMI (Fitting Model Index) to select the most appropriate prediction model from a list of candidate models instead of using conventional criteria such as R², RMSEC, RMSECV and RMSEP [1-2] without objective decision rules. This new approach is illustrated on different steps of a real pharmaceutical manufacturing process: water and Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) determinations in pharmaceutical pellets. Variability sources such as production campaigns, batches, days and operators were introduced in the calibration and validation sets. Partial Least Square (PLS) regression on the calibration sets was performed to build prediction models of which the ability to quantify accurately was tested with the validation sets. Regarding the product specifications, the acceptance limits were set at 20% and 5%, for the moisture and API determination, respectively.As can be seen from Figure 1 and 2, this innovative approach based on the desirability index FMI of the accuracy profile enabled to build and select the most appropriate prediction model in full accordance with its very final goal, to quantify as accurately as possible the analytes of interest.

Discriminating Escherichia albertii from other Enterobacteriaceae is diffi cult. Systematic analyses showed that E. albertii represents a substantial portion of strains currently identifi ed as eae-positive Escherichia coli and includes Shiga toxin 2f–producing strains. Because E. albertii possesses the eae gene, many strains might have been misidentifi ed as enterohemorrhagic or enteropathogenic E. coli. [less ▲]

Purpose: The objective was to determine the psychometric properties and the clinical application of a new Quality of Life self-assessment questionnaire suitable for adolescents 13 to 18 years old: the “Inventaire Systémique de Qualité de vie pour Adolescents” (ISQV-A). Methods: This was a cross-sectional validation study. 171 French adolescents have completed the ISQV-A. Other tools were used: the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory for Children (STAIC), the Children’s Depression Inventory (CDI). Results: The internal consistency of the four indices of the ISQV-A (state, goal, rank and gap) is satisfactory. All scores have their own specificity. The data show the convergent validity, test-retest fidelity and applicability of the ISQV-A. Conclusions: The adequacy of this new tool seems evident to highlight the adolescent’s quality of life. We will also discuss its clinical relevance into a cognitive behavioural approach. [less ▲]

This article discusses the measurement of quality of life for old people through the preliminary validation study (applicability, reliability and validity) of a questionnaire specifically designed for this population: the Quality of Life Systemic Inventory for old people (QLSI-65+©). This validation is based on a sample of 54 non-institutionalized adults aged 65 to 85 years. All completed a sociodemographic and medical questionnaire, the QLSI-65+©, the Geriatric Depression Scale (GDS) and the Satisfaction with Life Scale (SWLS). The results show a good applicability of the QLSI-65+©. The internal consistency of the indices (State, Goal, Rank and Gap) is very satisfactory. All indices are correlated each other to varying degrees (reliability). Correlations between State, Goal and Gap QLSI-65+© global scores and GDS and SWLS total scores are significant (convergent validity). Finally, State, Goal and Gap QLSI-65+© global scores of the sample are significantly better than those of 17 informal caregivers of people with dementia (validity in terms of know group differences).

This study approaches the question of quality of life measure in paediatric oncology. The main aim is to compare the quality of life level of children (8-12 years) undergoing (T) and off (HT) oncological treatments by using the French and the Portuguese modular versions of the Child Quality of Life Systemic Inventory (QLSI-C©). The Portuguese sample consists of 26 children T and 14 HT while the Belgian sample includes 20 children T and 35 HT. Results demonstrate statistically significant differences between the T and HT groups, particularly for the French version of the QLSI-C©. They also give evidence of the influence of some clinical and sociodemographic variables on the global quality of life score, mainly for the Portuguese version of the QLSI-C©. In conclusion, findings demonstrate the clinical interest of French and Portuguese versions of the QLSI-C© and their capacity to distinguish children undergoing oncological treatments from children off these treatments.

As his star-spangled costume and his usually firm posturing suggest, Uncle Sam impersonates the United States and symbolically reflects the nation’s most cherished values and ideals such as freedom, exceptionalism, and (masculine) strength. As such, he connects the projects of nationalism and patriotism with the scale of the individual. In other words, he embodies the American motto ‘out of many, one.’ Steve Darnall and Alex Ross’s rewriting of the character, however, strongly contrast with this dominant perception of Uncle Sam in their eponymous 1997 graphic novel. Their narrative shows a distressed and lunatic homeless man wandering the streets of an unknown American city. As he roams the streets, he undergoes an identity crisis that coincides with a crisis of memory, both of which complicate the relation between the symbolic individual body and the collective American unconscious. On the one hand, the character represents the values of freedom and democracy that the US government has strived to implement. On the other, he realizes that the paradigm of the nation cannot be understood as a monolithic entity, and that the plurality of voices that inhabit his persona – and, quite paradoxically, the country – cannot uphold this meta-narrative of American unity. In asking whether or not Uncle Sam is one of U.S., Darnall and Ross comment on the paradoxes of freedom and the myth of the melting pot. [less ▲]

Risk assessment is an interdisciplinary process used to quantify the risk linked to a hazard. In the present paper it is applied to quantify the risk linked to furan ingestion through the food chain for the Belgian adult population. Two approaches, deterministic and probabilistic, were carried out in parallel. The deterministic method relied on a case study, whereas the probabilistic approach involved statistical distributions of contamination and consumption data to calculate a statistical distribution of the daily intake. First, the deterministic method revealed a low estimated daily intake (EDI) for the average population (380 ng*(kgbw*day)–1) and a huge contribution of coffee consumption to the EDI (55%). Increasing or decreasing the daily coffee consumption by one cup can affect the EDI by about 22%. Afterwards, the probabilistic approach showed that the average population has a low EDI (494 ng*(kgbw*day) 1), and that high contamination levels were only registered in a small proportion of the population. Finally, a comparison of the RfDchronic oral showed that less than 10% of the Belgian population had an EDI above the reference dose proposed by the USEPA; the majority of the population had an EDI 20% below the reference dose. The margin of exposure (MoE) approach indicated that the level of risk related to furan intake through ingestion is low, with a MoE>10,000 for more than 10% of the population and no result < 100.

Les désinsertions trachéales traumatiques néonatales sont exceptionnelles. Elles sont généralement associées à une intubation compliquée, mais quelques descriptions ont été faites de ruptures trachéales partielles dans le décours d’un traumatisme obstétrical. Quelle que soit l’étiologie de la lésion trachéale, la prise en charge peut être conservatrice (par cicatrisation « simple » autour d’un tube entotrachéal) ou chirurgicale (par réparation des lésions).
