We address the issue of asserting the accuracy of coordinates advertised by nodes of Internet coordinate systems during distance estimations. Indeed, some nodes may lie deliberately about their coordinates to mount various attacks against applications and overlays. Our proposed method consists in two steps: 1) establish the correctness of a node’s claimed coordinate (which leverages our previous work on securing the coordinates embedding phase using a Surveyor infrastructure); and 2) issue a time limited validity certificate for each verified coordinate. Validity periods are computed based on an analysis of coordinate inter-shift times observed on PlanetLab, and shown to follow a long-tail distribution (lognormal distribution in most cases, or Weibull distribution otherwise). The effectiveness of the coordinate certification method is validated by measuring the impact of a variety of attacks on distance estimates. [less ▲]

Schizophrenia is associated with an increased risk of metabolic disorders such as diabetes, dyslipidaemia and the metabolic syndrome. The prevalence of type 2 diabetes in schizophrenic patients is at least twice that of the general population. Around 40 percent of patients meet criteria for the metabolic syndrome. Recently there is a growing concern on the metabolic side effects of treatment with second generation antipsychotics. According to various studies, including a prospective study performed in Flanders, treatment with clozapine and olanzapine has the highest metabolic risk, followed by quetiapine and risperidone. Amisulpride, ziprasidone and aripiprazole appear to have a low metabolic risk. Appropriate care, taking into account the possible improvement of the metabolic risks factors, is important to reduce morbidity and mortality in schizophrenic patients treated with antipsychotic medications.

Glucose is almost the only energy substrate for the brain. Such glucose dependence explains why any large variation of plasma glucose levels could lead to cerebral dysfunction, which may be severe and progress to a coma. Hypoglycaemic coma, the most common one, has a pure metabolic origin (neuroglucopenia) whereas hyperglycaemic coma is more complex and mainly due to osmotic disturbances. Besides acute changes of plasma glucose concentrations, it is generally recognized that more subtle chronic or recurrent glucose abnormalities could also result in brain dysfunction. However, such clinical consequences are more difficult to assess in clinical practice. Nevertheless, learning perturbations in young patients with type 1 diabetes and memory losses, sometimes severe and subject to progress to dementia ("diabetic encephalopathy") in older type 1 or type 2 diabetic patients, have been reported, although with some controversy. The present paper summarizes the current knowledge of both acute and chronic cerebral dysfunctions following perturbations of blood glucose levels in diabetic patients. [less ▲]

The authors took skin biopsies of the macroscopically normal skin of seven consecutive patients with spontaneous cervical artery dissection (SCAD). Histologically, alterations of the collagen and elastic fiber networks were found in six patients. In five, the histologic, immunohistochemical, and ultrastructural changes were similar to those usually found in Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS). This suggests that SCAD is frequently associated with the dermal alterations seen in EDS. [less ▲]

Cervical artery dissection (CeAD) is a rare condition. One of the causes is the vascular type of Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (vEDS). A novel missense mutation in COL3A1 was found in a young patient with CeAD as the single manifestation of vEDS. This is a heterozygous c.953G>A mutation in exon 14, disrupting the normal Gly-X-Y repeats of type III procollagen, by converting glycine to aspartic acid. [less ▲]

Cervical cancer is a major public health concern in Morocco where it represents the second most common and lethal cancer in women. Human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccines have been licensed in Morocco since 2008 but there are no available data on their acceptability. This study aimed to assess awareness of HPV and the vaccine, and to identify factors associated with acceptability of the vaccine among parents in Morocco. We carried out a questionnaire-based survey using face-to-face interviews in a sample of 852 parents (670 mothers and 182 fathers) with at least one unmarried daughter </=26 years. We collected data within public and private health centres and clinics in four regions in Morocco between July and August 2012. The main outcome measure was parental acceptability of the HPV vaccine for their daughter(s). Responses revealed very low awareness of HPV infection (4.7%) and the HPV vaccine (14.3%). None of the participants had vaccinated their daughter(s) against HPV and vaccine acceptability was low among mothers (32%) and fathers (45%). Higher education and income, previous awareness of the HPV vaccine and endorsement of the belief that a recommendation from the Ministry of Health or a doctor to have the vaccine would be encouraging, were associated with mothers' HPV vaccine acceptability. Non-acceptability among mothers was associated with having more than two daughters, believing the vaccine was expensive, lack of information and believing that whatever happens to an individual's health is God's will. The only factor associated with the fathers' acceptability of the vaccine was the cost of the vaccine. Increasing HPV and HPV vaccine awareness through educational campaigns, along with active recommendation by physicians and a publically funded vaccination programme could increase parental acceptability of the HPV vaccine in Morocco.

Cervical cancer is a preventable disease, occurring in relatively young women. In the Netherlands, population-based cervical screening aims at women aged 30-60 years. We performed a population-based study of the incidence of invasive cervical cancer in the Netherlands to evaluate trends, with emphasis on age at time of diagnosis. Histologic diagnosis was retrieved from the Netherlands Cancer Registry for all women residing in the Netherlands with invasive cervical cancer between January 1, 1989, and December 31, 1998. In this 10-year period, the incidence rate of squamous cell carcinoma decreased significantly from 7.1/100,000 to 6.1/100,000 (p < 0.001), with the greatest decrease in women aged 60-74 (-5.5%). While the overall incidence rate of adenocarcinoma remained stable, it increased in women aged 15-29 (+15.8%) and in women aged 30-44 (+2.5%), though the number of cases was small. For squamous cell carcinoma, the incidence of stage II at diagnosis decreased most (-2.7%). There was no change in stage at diagnosis for adenocarcinoma. Most cases of cervical cancer, 60.5%, were detected between ages 30 and 60 years, i.e., the Dutch screening age interval. Cervical cancer in women below age 30 contributed 5.0% to the total incidence, with 3.0% occurring between ages 27 and 29. Thus, screening for cervical cancer in the Netherlands is associated with a decrease in the incidence of squamous cell carcinoma and adenocarcinoma incidence appears to be increasing in younger women.

Low-grade cervical squamous abnormalities (low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions [LSIL, CIN1]) can be confused with or followed by high-grade (HSIL, CIN2/3) lesions, expending considerable resources. Recently, a cell of origin for cervical neoplasia was proposed in the squamocolumnar junction (SCJ); HSILs are almost always SCJ, but LSILs include SCJ and SCJ subsets. Abnormal cervical biopsies from 214 patients were classified by 2 experienced pathologists (panel) as LSIL or HSIL using published criteria. SILs were scored SCJ and SCJ using SCJ-specific antibodies (keratin7, AGR2, MMP7, and GDA). Assessments of interobserver agreement, p16 staining pattern, proliferative index, and outcome were compared. The original diagnostician agreed with the panel diagnosis of HSIL and SCJ LSIL in all cases (100%). However, for SCJ LSIL, panelists disagreed with each other by 15% and with the original diagnostician by 46.2%. Comparing SCJ and SCJ LSILs, 60.2% and 94.9% were p16 positive, 23% and 74.4% showed strong (full-thickness) p16 staining, and 0/54 (0%) and 8/33 (24.2%) with follow-up had an HSIL outcome, respectively. Some SCJ LSILs are more likely to both generate diagnostic disagreement and be associated with HSIL. Conversely, SCJ LSILs generate little observer disagreement and, when followed, have a very low risk of HSIL outcome. Thus, SCJ biomarkers in conjunction with histology may segregate LSILs with very low risk of HSIL outcome and conceivably could be used as a management tool to reduce excess allocation of resources to the follow-up of these lesions.
