In a healthy individual, a dyspnoea of abrupt onset raises the suspicion of a spontaneous pneumothorax. The clinical examination and standard chest X-ray usually permit the correct diagnosis. The risk of reccurence can be assessed by the clinical history and examination. The functional consequences (which can be lethal) and the risk of recurrence will guide the short- and long-term therapy. [less ▲]

Preeclampsia (PE) is a pregnancy-specific syndrome characterized by hypertension, proteinuria and edema, which resolves on placental delivery. It is thought to be the consequence of impaired placentation due to inadequate trophoblastic invasion of the maternal spiral arteries. In PE the maternal plasma concentration of free vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and placental growth factor (PlGF) is decreased whereas the concentration of soluble fms-like tyrosine kinase-1 (sFlt-1) and of soluble endoglin (sEng) is increased. These soluble receptors may bind VEGF, PLGF and TGFβ1 and TGFβ3 in the maternal circulation, causing endothelial dysfunction in many maternal tissues. Hence there is a view that the pathogenesis is more or less clarified. According to the vascular theory, poor placentation leads to poor uteroplacental perfusion and hypoxia, which stimulates sFlt-1 and sEng production causing the maternal syndrome. This assumption has been recently challenged. The role of hypoxia as the main stimulus for release of sFlt-1 has been questioned and the role of inflammatory mechanisms has been emphasized. According to this inflammatory theory, poor placentation may predispose more to placental oxidative stress than hypoxia and endothelial dysfunction may be part of a broader disorder of systemic inflammation. Finally, the recent demonstration of activating auto-antibodies to the angiotensin 1 receptor that experimentally play a major pathogenic role in PE further suggests a pleiotropism of aetiologies for this condition. The purpose of this review is to critically evaluate the recent hypotheses and their possible insights on early diagnosis, prevention and treatment. [less ▲]

While overt thyroid disturbances, characterized by symptoms and/or clinical signs with abnormal serum levels of thyroid hormones, are generally associated with perturbations in the lipid profile, the situation is less clear as far as subclinical thyroid disturbances, defined by isolated abnormalities of thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) levels, are concerned. In severe hyperthyroidism, a decrease of total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol and apoprotein B concentrations is generally observed. These biological parameters are normalized when appropriate antithyroid treatment is given. In profound hypothyroidism, on the contrary, elevated levels of total and LDL cholesterol levels are observed, which decrease after hormonal replacement. In both cases, the changes in serum levels of HDL cholesterol, triglycerides and lipoprotein (a) are less systematic, both before and after treatment. Lipid abnormalities associated with subclinical thyroid disturbances remain controversial. However, two recent meta-analyses have shown higher LDL cholesterol levels in presence of subclinical hypothyroidism and a significant reduction of such lipid abnormality after administration of thyroxine. Furthermore, they demonstrated a higher prevalence of subclinical hypothyroidism in a population with hypercholesterolaemia when compared to a population with normal cholesterol levels. Finally, a significant reduction in both total and LDL cholesterol concentrations has been reported after administration of thyroxine in a small group of hypercholesterolaemic patients with basal TSH levels in the upper range of normal values. In view of the results of the literature, strategies are proposed to help the clinician in the management of patients with overt or subclinical thyroid disturbances, associated with dyslipidaemia.

Le récit d’anticipation négatif développe une réflexion sur la cohésion d’une société à travers l’histoire d’une communauté humaine dont l’organisation collective et les bases sociales sont fragilisées, voire détruites. Ce genre littéraire ne s’apparente pas seulement au roman cataclysmique ou aux multiples scénarios de la guerre future. Il se rapproche aussi des ambitions de la politique-fiction et des procédés de l’anticipation scientifique. Entre 1830, date des premières anti-utopies constituées en récit, et 1950, moment de convergence de ces récits avec la science-fiction naissante, la production dystopique francophone s’avère riche, complexe et encore peu étudiée. D’Albert Robida à René Barjavel, nombreux sont pourtant les récits à (re-)considérer sous cet angle. [less ▲]

We demonstrate the ability of doubly resonant sum–frequency generation (DR-SFG) to investigate electron–phonon couplings at C60 –metal interfaces. Due to its coupling to electronic transitions, the totally symmetric Ag(2) vibration of C60 exhibits a huge enhancement of its nonlinear response for sum–frequency energies above the molecular electronic gap. We attribute this resonance to the coupling of the pentagonal pinch mode with the tiu lowest unoccupied molecular orbital (LUMO) of C60. [less ▲]

Antitumor and radiosensitizing effects of (E)-2'-deoxy-2'-(fluoromethylene) cytidine (FMdC), a novel inhibitor of ribonucleotide reducÃase, were evaluated on nude mice bearing s.c. human C33-A cervix cancer and I -H7 MG glioblastoma xenografts. FMdC given once daily has a dosedependent antitumor effect. The maximum tolerated dose in the mice was reached with 10 daily i.p. administrations of 10 mg/kg over 12 days. In the case of radiotherapy (RT) alone (10 fractions over 12 days), the radiation dose required to produce local tumor control in 50% of the treated C33-A xenografts was 51.0 Gy. When combined with FMdC, the radiation dose required to produce local tumor control was reduced to 41.4 and 38.2 Gy, at respective doses of 5 and 10 mg/kg given i.p. l h before each irradiation. The corresponding enhancement ratios (ERs) were 1.2 and 1.3, respec tively. In U-87 MG xenografts, when 5-20 mg/kg FMdC combined with 30 or 40 Gy of RT, the combination treatment produced a significantly increased growth delay as compared with RT alone (P £0.002). The ERs of 5, 10, and 20 mg/kg FMdC at a dose of 30 Gy were 2.0, 1.4, and 1.8, respectively. At the 40-Gy level, ERs of 10 and 20 mg/kg FMdC were 1.4 and 1.7. When FMdC was combined with 50 Gy of RT, an increased long-term remission rate of 80-88.9% was observed, as compared with 25% for RT alone (P <0.05). FMdC produced moderate myelosuppression in the mice bearing cervix cancer, whereas leukocytosis occurred in the mice bearing glioblastoma at a low dose. Slightly increased skin toxicity (only with U-87 MG tumor) was observed, as compared with RT alone. In conclusion, FMdC is a potent cytotoxic agent and able to modify the radiation response of C33-A and U-87 MG xenografts. [less ▲]

Extensive use of pesticides to control insect pests can have negative effects on the environment, natural enemies and food safety. The aphid alarm pheromone, E-b-farnesene (Ebf), appears to hold strong potential for controlling a wide variety of aphid pests. To understand the control potential of Ebf, we used field experiments in a factorial design to test its influence and that of the insecticide imidacloprid on populations of aphids Lipaphis erysimi (Kaltenbach) and Myzus persicae (Sulzer) on Chinese cabbage, Brassica rapa pekinensis (Brassicales: Brassicaceae). Our results showed imidacloprid treatment alone can significantly decrease aphid populations, and that combining insecticide with Ebf further reduced numbers of apterous aphids at distances of 5 m from pheromone emitters in two years of our experiments. Our results demonstrate that imidacloprid can be effective in reducing the abundance of aphids in Chinese cabbage fields, but the degree of control can be even stronger in the presence of Ebf.
