Seventeen patients with Cushing's disease (CD) were treated from 1978 to 2000. There were 11 males and 6 females aged 6.8-18.8 years (mean age 13.0 +/- 5.9 years). Presenting features were: weight gain (100%); growth failure (71%); hirsutism (53%); striae (53%); hypertension (47%). Mean age of patients with striae was 15.2 +/- 2.3 years, without striae 10.3 +/- 3.3 years. Median height SDS was -1.81 (range -0.28 to -4.17), 53% having height SDS < -1.8. The height velocity in 6 subjects was subnormal (0.9-3.8 cm/year). Median BMI SDS was 2.29 (range 1.72-5.06). Cushing's disease was confirmed by detectable serum ACTH, median 28 ng/l (range 12-99, NR <10-50) (n = 15); loss of cortisol circadian rhythm values at midnight ranging from 216 to 1,080 nmol/l (NR <50) (n = 15); lack of cortisol suppression (NV < 50 nmol/l) during low-dose dexamethasone suppression test (LDDST) (0.5 mg 6-hourly x 8) (n = 14); and >50% suppression of cortisol compared with the basal value during high-dose dexamethasone suppression test (HDDST) (2 mg 6-hourly x 8) (n = 14). A CRH test (1 microg/kg i.v.) showed an increase of cortisol from 12 to 217% (median 73.5%) (n = 16). Pituitary imaging (CT/MRI) showed an image consistent with microadenoma in 6/17 patients, but there was concordance between pituitary imaging and surgical findings in 1/11 patients (9%). Inferior petrosal sinus sampling (IPSS) for ACTH after CRH was performed in 11 subjects (age 10.7-18.8 years). Central to peripheral ACTH ratios were >2 (2.5-157.2) in 10/11 patients. The inter-petrosal sinus ACTH gradient was >1.4 in 10 patients (2.1-20.8), indicating lateralization of ACTH secretion. In 10 patients (91%), the side of the tumour on IPSS was predictive of findings at surgery. Therapy consisted of transsphenoidal microadenomectomy (TSS) in 16 patients and bilateral adrenalectomy (1978) in 1. Following TSS alone, 7 patients were cured (cortisol <50 nmol/l) and 2 were in remission (cortisol <300 nmol/l), i.e. 56%. Seven had persisting hypercortisolaemia and underwent pituitary irradiation (4,500 cGy). Therapeutic outcome for a median of 8 years (0.5-24 years) resulted in cure of CD in 14/17 patients (82%) and remission in 1. Linear growth after TSS +/- pituitary irradiation in 10 subjects showed no short-term catch-up growth, with peak growth hormone (GH) 0.5-20.9 mU/l to insulin tolerance test (ITT)/glucagon. Eight patients were treated with human growth hormone (hGH) (14 U/m(2)/week) combined in 3 with GnRH analogue. The mean final (n = 6) or latest (n = 4) height SDS was -1.36. The difference between final/latest height SDS and target height SDS was 0.93 +/- 1.13, i.e. less (p = 0.005) than the difference between height SDS and target height SDS at presentation, i.e. 1.72 +/- 1.26, indicating long-term catch-up growth.

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 ▲]
