Athletic ability of endurance horses is intimately linked to muscle oxidative capacity. Microbiopsies of triceps brachii (TB) and gluteus medius (GM) were collected before and after 10 weeks of training in 7 endurance horses to assess the feasibility of studying training effect with the use of microbiopsies. Oxygen consumption of permeabilized fibers was evaluated by high resolution respirometry (HRR) with a titration protocol that defines the activity of the mitochondrial complexes. Differences among muscles before and after training as well as training effect were assessed by Wilcoxon matched pairs test (P<0.05). No complications occurred following microbiopsies in any horse. The in situ oxidative capacity of the TB and GM increased with training. No difference was found between the TB and GM when one horse was excluded from the statistical analysis. Indeed, this horse showed signs of exercise intolerance before sampling (after the training period) which were associated to a low rate of respiration in GM but not in TB. Results of this study showed that HRR may be used to follow training effect and suggest that metabolic impairment might be detected with HRR. [less ▲]

Wheat starch was treated by different γ-radiation doses (3, 5, 10, 20, 35 and 50 kGy). The effects of γ-radiation on structural, thermal, physicochemical, morphological and rheological properties of wheat starch were studied. The presence of free radicals after γ-radiation treatment, which number decreased with time was confirmed. Structural analysis revealed decreases in the intensities of the O–H and C–H stretches and glycosidic linkages indicating the depolymerization of amylose and probably amy-lopectin into shorter chain molecules, but showed that γ-radiation treatment did not affect the crystalline structure. Differential scanning calorimetric (DSC) thermograms showed the absence of significant differences in the gelatinization temperatures, as well as the corresponding transition enthalpies since the DSC parameters are related to the crystalline ordering within the granules. Apparent amylose content decreased linearly with increasing irradiation dose leading to an increase in water solubility index. Anincrease in the swelling power was observed after irradiation treatment until 20 kGy, followed by a rapiddecrease at higher doses. Microscopic observations showed that the effect of γ-radiation was more visible on starch pastes than on starch granules. Rheological properties of the starch pastes decreased within creasing irradiation dose as a result of glycosidic bond cleavage. [less ▲]

OBJECTIVE AND DESIGN: Children born small for gestational age (SGA) are not only at risk for short stature, but also for neurodevelopmental and behavioral problems. In this study, we analyzed the effects of high-dose GH therapy on cognitive development and psychosocial functioning in 34 prepubertal (3-8 years) short SGA children, equally randomized into a GH-treated group (TRG) and an untreated group (UTRG). METHODS: At start and after 2 years, children underwent standardized tests measuring the intellectual abilities (Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence-Revised, or Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Revised); their parents completed a standardized questionnaire evaluating psychosocial functioning (Child Behavior Checklist; CBCL). RESULTS: At start, total IQ scores were significantly (P < 0.05) lower in the SGA group than in the general population: 32% of the SGA patients had scores below 85. After 2 years, IQ scores remained unchanged in the TRG, but increased significantly (P < 0.05) in the UTRG. After exclusion of children with developmental problems, however, no significant changes in IQ scores occurred in the UTRG as well as the TRG. At baseline, 24% (8/34) children had problematic CBCL total problems scores, equally distributed among the two groups; no significant changes in the different subscale scores occurred after 2 years. CONCLUSION: No beneficial effect of 2 years of GH therapy on cognitive and behavioral profile could be observed in a cohort of rather young short SGA children presenting a variable degree of developmental delay and behavioral problems. Subsequent follow-up could reveal potential long-term effects of GH therapy on development and behavior. [less ▲]

New technology in surgery is more and more present and allows to study cognitive processes in complex and natural environment. Comparing to classical minimal access surgery, a new robotic system allows to recover a 3D view and all degrees of freedom for instruments movement. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the perceptual (2D vs 3D view) and instrumental (classical versus robotic) impacts of this new robotic system on learning curves. 40 medical students without any surgical experience were randomized into 4 groups (classical laparoscopy with 3D-direct view or with 2D-indirect view, robotic system in 3D or in 2D) and repeated a surgical task 6 times. After these 6 repetitions, they performed 2 trials with the same technique but in the other viewing condition (perceptive switch). Finally, subjects performed last three trials with the technique they never used (technical switch). We measured the speed, the accuracy and their subjective impressions about their performance (satisfaction, self-confidence and difficulty). Our results showed better performance and improvement in 3D view than in 2D view, whatever the instrumental aspect. Participants reported less mastery, familiarity, self-confidence and more difficulty in classical laparoscopy with 2D view than in the other conditions. In conclusion, robotic surgery improves surgical performance and learning, particularly by 3D view advantage. However, the bad performances after the perceptive and technical switches emphasize the need to adapt and pursue training also with traditional technology in order to prevent risks when a robotic procedure has to be converted in a classical laparoscopic procedure.

Context:The FREEDOM extension is evaluating the long-term efficacy and safety of denosumab for up to 10 years.Objective:Report results from the first 3 years of the extension, representing up to 6 years of denosumab exposure.Design, Setting, and Participants: Multicenter, international, open-label study of 4550 women.Intervention:Women from the FREEDOM denosumab group received 3 more years of denosumab for a total of 6 years (long-term) and women from the FREEDOM placebo group received 3 years of denosumab (cross-over).Main Outcome Measures:Bone turnover markers (BTMs), bone mineral density (BMD), fracture, and safety.Results:Reductions in BTMs were maintained (long-term) or achieved rapidly (cross-over) following denosumab administration. In the long-term group, BMD further increased for cumulative 6-year gains of 15.2% (lumbar spine) and 7.5% (total hip). During the first 3 years of denosumab treatment, the cross-over group had significant gains in lumbar spine (9.4%) and total hip (4.8%) BMD, similar to the long-term group during the 3-year FREEDOM trial. In the long-term group, fracture incidences remained low and below rates projected for a "virtual placebo" cohort. In the cross-over group, 3-year incidences of new vertebral and nonvertebral fractures were similar to those of the FREEDOM denosumab group. Incidence rates of adverse events did not increase over time. Six participants had events of ONJ confirmed by adjudication. One participant had a fracture adjudicated as consistent with atypical femoral fracture.Conclusion:Denosumab treatment for 6 years remained well tolerated, maintained reduced bone turnover, and continued to increase BMD. Fracture incidence remained low. [less ▲]
