The FUV instrument on IMAGE frequently observes localized ultraviolet emission on the high latitude dayside, poleward of the normal auroral oval location. This emission is especially distinct in the observations of Doppler shifted Lyman alpha emission from precipitating protons. We interpret this emission as the optical signature of precipitation into the cusp after lobe reconnection at the magnetopause. Several cusp crossings by the FAST satellite are used to establish an estimate of the energy input and the characteristics of the precipitating protons. Multivariate cluster analysis and other statistical tools are used to determine the dependence of this precipitation on solar wind parameters. This shows that under northward IMF and high solar wind dynamic pressure, proton precipitation can be the dominating energy input into the cusp region. [less ▲]

International strategy research focuses on the fundamental choice between local adaptation, global aggregation, or cross-national arbitrage. The Adaptation-Aggregation-Arbitrage (AAA) triangle summarizes these options and suggests that the more firms balance the three strategies, the greater the success they experience in internationalization. We extend this AAA framework by investigating the role of customer participation. Based on a review of the relevant literature, we identify three stages of customer influence, i.e., customization, co-creation, and co-formation (CCC). These are used to develop a combined framework of AAA-CCC strategies. Four case examples illustrate that some combinations are more likely to yield success than others. [less ▲]

Photopolymerizable materials are capable of recording volume holograms via a change in refractivity of the layer. On illumination by an interference pattern around 500 nm, polymerization and diffusion led to regions with various segment densities. A modulation of the refractive index took place, thus giving rise to permanent thick phase gratings created in situ in the emulsion. This modulation was estimated at 7 x 10(-3), corresponding to diffraction efficiencies of ca. 80% for transmission holography. Applications for the fabrication of diffractive optical elements can be expected in view of the experimental results and the simplicity of use. For instance, the duplication of computer-generated holograms on a photopolymerizable film led to thick phase holograms with higher diffraction efficiencies. Substrate-mode polarizing elements were also produced, taking advantage of the laminated property since this emulsion was embedded between two glass plates. (C) 2002 Elsevier Science B.V.

Although widely administered, anti-infective vaccinations are rarely responsible for cutaneous adverse effects. In this context, hepatitis B and bacillus Calmette-Guerin vaccines are the most frequently incriminated products. Cutaneous adverse effects are less frequently encountered following administration of vaccines against varicella, diphtheria/tetanus/pertussis (primary and booster doses), measles, poliomyelitis, rubella, pneumococcus, tick-borne encephalitis, smallpox, Meningococcus and influenza. The adverse effects can occur at the site of or at a distance from the injection. The patho-mechanisms of local adverse cutaneous reactions include predominantly nonspecific lymphoid or granulomatous reactions. Allergic reactions to the vaccine strain, adjuvants, conservatives or other components are less frequently involved in local vaccine adverse effects. Systemic reactions are mainly mediated by immediate type or immune complex-related allergic reactions to toxoid-, ovalbumin-, gelatin- or pneumococcal-containing vaccines. Systemic reactions are sometimes related to a specific vaccine strain. Other cutaneous reactions may also occur through unknown patho-mechanisms. No vaccine type or strain is specifically associated with a particular type of cutaneous adverse effect. This article presents seven case reports of cutaneous adverse effects following anti-infective vaccination then reviews the relevant literature on this subject. [less ▲]

We compared the cutaneous reaction to intradermal injection of substance P, gastrin and histamine in asymptomatic atopic subjects with a history of hay fever and/or asthma versus non-atopic healthy volunteers. We also studied in these two groups the basophilic histamine release induced by substance P and gastrin with that obtained with anti-human IgE and Con A. Intradermal injection of substance P (3-300 pM) and gastrin (3-30 pM) caused a wheal and flare reaction which was comparable in both groups of subjects. Substance P 10(-4)M caused a mean basophilic histamine release of about 15% in atopic and non-atopic subjects. Gastrin was not effective in this model. Anti-IgE and Con A-induced histamine release was significantly higher in atopic than in non-atopic volunteers. [less ▲]

Skin lesions are common in renal transplant recipients (RTR) and the clinical distinction of malignancy versus infection may be difficult in this patient population, with the need for further histological and biological investigations. We report here on a 73-year-old male RTR who presented with Alternaria infectoria phaeohyphomycosis of 1 year's duration. Mycological cultures were negative, and the diagnosis was performed by real-time polymerase chain reaction assay and direct sequencing. The extension of the lesion under itraconazole treatment required its surgical excision. Alternaria are ubiquitous plant-inhabiting saprobes, which are increasingly associated with opportunistic phaeohyphomycosis in immunocompromised individuals. [less ▲]

Myospherulosis is a rare disorder that may develop in various organs including the skin. It is characterized by a typical histological presentation resulting from the interaction between erythrocytes and lipids. We present a case of cutaneous myospherulosis associated with membranous lipodystrophy. The lesions were supervening on severe steroid-induced skin atrophy upon which ointments had been applied.

BACKGROUND: Melanotic schwannoma is a pigmented nerve tumor that may be located in the skin and express local aggressivity. This tumor may occur singly. It may also be part of the Carney complex which consists of various, but specific, tumors. OBJECTIVE: We report two cases of subcutaneous melanotic schwannoma localized on the trunk in two men aged 37 and 45 years. METHODS: Conventional histology and immunohistochemistry were performed. RESULTS: One melanotic schwannoma was associated with a cutaneous atypical myxoma and multiple melanocytic lesions, all being part of the Carney complex. The other case had no associated signs. In both cases, the melanotic schwannoma was completely excised and did not recur. CONCLUSION: Melanotic schwannoma is rare and curable by surgery. It must not be confused with malignant melanoma and other pigmented neoplasms. The Carney complex should be carefully ruled out. [less ▲]

Cutaneous adverse reactions are reported for many therapeutic agents and, in general, are observed in between 0% and 8% of treated patients depending on the drug. Antiosteoporotic agents are considered to be safe in terms of cutaneous effects, however there have been a number of case reports of cutaneous adverse reactions which warrant consideration. This was the subject of a working group meeting of the European Society for Clinical and Economic Aspects of Osteoporosis and Osteoarthritis in April 2009, which focused on the impact of cutaneous adverse reactions and drug-induced hypersensitivity in the management of postmenopausal osteoporosis. This position paper was drafted following these discussions and includes a flowchart for their recognition. Cutaneous adverse reactions observed with antiosteoporotic agents were reviewed and included information from case reports, regulatory documents and pharmacovigilance. These reactions ranged from benign effects including exanthematous or maculopapular eruption (drug rash), photosensitivity and urticaria, to the severe and potentially life-threatening reactions of angioedema, drug rash with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms (DRESS), Stevens Johnson syndrome and toxic epidermal necrolysis. A review of the available evidence demonstrates that cutaneous adverse reactions occur with all commonly used antiosteoporotic treatments. Notably, there are reports of Stevens Johnson syndrome and toxic epidermal necrolysis for bisphosphonates, and of DRESS and toxic epidermal necrolysis for strontium ranelate. These severe reactions remain very rare (<1 in 10,000 cases). In general, with proper management and early recognition, including immediate and permanent withdrawal of the culprit agent, accompanied by hospitalization, rehydration and systemic corticosteroids if necessary, the prognosis is positive. © The Author(s), 2011.
