Current management of shingles relies on antiviral therapy. The efficacy of acyclovir in varicella-zoster virus replication is now well established, with a beneficial impact on zoster-associated pain, but its moderate bioavailability renders five oral daily doses mandatory. Recent anti-VZV drug research has been oriented towards agents with increased oral bioavailability. Famciclovir and valaciclovir were originally developed as oral prodrugs for^penciclovir and acyclovir, respectively, but, together with the new antivirals, sorivudine and brovavir, they appear to be effective as oral therapy for shingles. Ongoing clinical trials will determine their relative merits in the management of shingles. The experimental agents H2G, HPMPC, mappicine ketone and A-73209 have potential in the treatment of VZV and are undergoing further investigation and development. [less ▲]

Repeated imaging of Jupiter's aurora has shown that the northern main oval has a distorted 'kidney bean' shape in the general range of 90-150o System III longitude, which appears unchanged since 1994. While it is more difficult to observe the conjugate regions in the southern aurora, no corresponding distortion appears in the south. Recent improved accuracy in locating the auroral footprint emission of Io has provided new information about the geometry of Jupiter's magnetic field in this and other areas. The persistent pattern of the main oval implies a disturbance of the local magnetic field, and the increased latitudinal separation of the locus of the Io footprint from the main oval implies a locally weaker field strength. The most recent images obtained with the Hubble Space Telescope Advance Camera for Surveys (ACS) allow us to complement previous observations with the location of the auroral footprints of Io, Europa, and Ganymede in the region of interest. Their footpaths vary in parallel and form a kink in the 90-150° S3 sector which strongly suggests the presence of a magnetic anomaly in this region. [less ▲]

Swine performance in the face of disease challenge is becoming progressively more important. To improve the pig’s robustness and resilience against pathogens through selection, a better understanding of the genetic and epigenetic factors in the immune response is required. This review highlights results from the most recent transcriptome research, and the meta-analyses performed, in the context of pig immunity. A technological overview is given including wholegenome microarrays, immune-specific arrays, small-scale high-throughput expression methods, high-density tiling arrays, and next generation sequencing (NGS). Although whole genome microarray techniques will remain complementary to NGS for some time in domestic species, research will transition to sequencing-based methods due to cost-effectiveness and the extra information that such methods provide. Furthermore, upcoming high-throughput epigenomic studies, which will add greatly to our knowledge concerning the impact of epigenetic modifications on pig immune response, are listed in this review. With emphasis on the insights obtained from transcriptomic analyses for porcine immunity, we also discuss the experimental design in pig immunity research and the value of the newly published porcine genome assembly in using the pig as a model for human immune response. We conclude by discussing the importance of establishing community standards to maximize the possibility of integrative computational analyses, such as was clearly beneficial for the human ENCODE project. © 2014, Springer Science+Business Media New York.

Infection by Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV) types I and II represent a worldwide medical problem. After the primary infection the virus establishes a life-long latency in the dorsal root ganglia and recurrences may occur at unpredictable times and rate. The most frequent clinical presentation of HSV infection is recurrent herpes labialis and herpes genitalis. The clinical expression varies according to the body site, the infected cell type, the relationship between HSV and the host immune status. Viral identification techniques such as immunohistochemistry and in situ hybridization on Tzanck smears and muco-cutanenous biopsies are helpful in the diagnosis of atypical cutaneous lesions. The treatment modalities of HSV infections include the reduction of viral load using antiviral agents, the non-specific immune stimulation of the host and specific vaccination in order to prevent new acquisition and to mitigate symptoms in already infected individuals. This review addresses various therapeutic options, their mode of action, and clinical value as well as the indications of the various drugs. [less ▲]

During the pregnancy of ruminants, different hormones and proteins are secreted by placenta or corpus luteum allowing the follow up of gestation. Among them, progesterone (P4) and pregnancy-associated glycoproteins (PAG) were proposed as laboratory tools to establish or to confirm pregnancy diagnosis. In last years, PAG assay also provided useful information for researchers working in programs focused on the follow up of trophoblastic function. Concentrations of PAG appeared as altered after the use of embryo biotechnology (in vitro fertilization, cloning by nuclear transfer, inter-specific pregnancies), according to nutritional status of pregnant females (overnourished or undernourished), or consecutive to infectious diseases leading to pathologies affecting the pregnancy in cows (Actynomyces pyogenes and Neospora caninum) and goats (Toxoplasma gondii, Listeria monocytogenes and Trypanosoma congolense). As well, in numerous studies, the association of repeated ultrasound examinations with P4 and PAG determinations allowed a better understanding of mechanisms related to embryonic and fetal mortalities: failure after artificial insemination or embryo transfer techniques, large offspring syndrome after in vitro fecundation and cloning.

Calcium phosphate (CaP) has traditionally been used for the repair of bone defects because of its strong resemblance to the inorganic phase of bone matrix. Nowadays, a variety of natural or synthetic CaP-based biomaterials are produced and have been extensively used for dental and orthopaedic applications. This is justified by their biocompatibility, osteoconductivity and osteoinductivity (i.e. the intrinsic material property that initiates de novo bone formation), which are attributed to the chemical composition, surface topography, macro/microporosity and the dissolution kinetics. However, the exact molecular mechanism of action is unknown. This review paper first summarizes the most important aspects of bone biology in relation to CaP and the mechanisms of bone matrix mineralization. This is followed by the research findings on the effects of calcium (Ca(2)(+)) and phosphate (PO(4)(3)(-)) ions on the migration, proliferation and differentiation of osteoblasts during in vivo bone formation and in vitro culture conditions. Further, the rationale of using CaP for bone regeneration is explained, focusing thereby specifically on the material's osteoinductive properties. Examples of different material forms and production techniques are given, with the emphasis on the state-of-the art in fine-tuning the physicochemical properties of CaP-based biomaterials for improved bone induction and the use of CaP as a delivery system for bone morphogenetic proteins. The use of computational models to simulate the CaP-driven osteogenesis is introduced as part of a bone tissue engineering strategy in order to facilitate the understanding of cell-material interactions and to gain further insight into the design and optimization of CaP-based bone reparative units. Finally, limitations and possible solutions related to current experimental and computational techniques are discussed. [less ▲]

Based on the time-dependent Ginzburg-Landau equations, we study numerically current-driven vortices in a micrometer size square type-II superconductor. We demonstrate that the applied current significantly influences the dynamics of the vortices entering the sample. Strikingly, we find that a giant vortex can be created by the current-assisted collision of two singly quantized vortices. [less ▲]

We investigate experimentally and theoretically the vortex dynamics in a superconducting film with nanoengineered open vortex traps which provide tunable pinning, ranging from no pinning for a certain current direction to finite pinning when reversing the current flow. The design is based on the confinement of the vortex motion within two repulsive walls, one with periodic microprotrusions and the other one smooth. Clear commensurability effects are seen if the bias current drives the vortices inside the traps, whereas these effects are much less pronounced when the current pushes the vortices against the smooth surface. For small periods of the protrusions or large vortex sizes, the properties displayed by the vortices, pushed against these two surfaces of dissimilar roughness can be thought of as due to the change of effective sliding friction.

Le présent volume constitue les actes du onzième colloque de l'AiRDF, qui s’est tenu à Liège, du 26 au 28 aout 2010, et avait pour thème la question suivante : « Quelles progressions curriculaires en français ? » Poser cette question, c’était donner à entendre que les curriculums (les plans d’action) et les progressions (les étapes prévues pour réaliser ces plans) pouvaient différer sensiblement d’une institution scolaire à l’autre. Il s’agissait alors de se demander quels étaient hier et quels sont aujourd’hui les finalités de l’école et les buts de la formation disciplinaire en français. Il s’agissait de se demander si ces finalités et ces buts avaient été, jadis ou naguère, explicitement énoncés et s’ils le sont à l’heure actuelle. Il s’agissait de se demander à quel point leur énoncé et leur poursuite par l’ensemble des acteurs impliqués reflètent les tensions de notre discipline, tensions liées, d’une part, à son identité problématique, et, d’autre part, aux déterminations socioculturelles. Il s’agissait de réfléchir aussi aux implications d’une évaluation scientifique de la mise en oeuvre du curriculum et aux conditions de possibilité d’une progression curriculaire qui réduirait les tensions susdites. Poser cette question, c’était enfin inciter les chercheurs à se pencher sur la réalisation des plans d’action. Les contributions réunies dans ce volume abordent ces problèmes à propos de l’enseignement du français en France, en Suisse romande, au Québec, en Belgique francophone et au Liban, de la maternelle à la formation continuée des enseignants.
