Cardiopulmonary exercise testing is a unique tool to assess the limits and mechanisms of exercise tolerance. It is also useful for establishing the profiles and adequacy of the responses of the systems at submaximal and maximal exercises. The measure of VO2 max (maximal oxygen uptake) has become the "benchmark" to quantify cardiovascular functional capacity and aerobic fitness. [less ▲]

Ergotamine has been used in clinical practice for the acute treatment of migraine for over 50 years, but there has been little agreement on its place in clinical practice. An expert group from Europe reviewed the pre-clinical and clinical data on ergotamine as it relates to the treatment of migraine. From this review, specific suggestions for the patient groups and appropriate use of ergotamine have been agreed. In essence, ergotamine, from a medical perspective, is the drug of choice in a limited number of migraine sufferers who have infrequent or long duration headaches and are likely to comply with dosing restrictions. For most migraine sufferers requiring a specific anti-migraine treatment, a triptan is generally a better option from both an efficacy and side-effect perspective. [less ▲]

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effect of Ericksonian therapy on tinnitus STUDY DESIGN: Non-randomised, prospective longitudinal study. SETTING: Tertiary referral centre. PATIENTS: A total of 49 patients underwent hypnosis therapy. Fourteen patients failed to finish the therapy (drop-out rate: 35%). Of the 35 patients who completed the therapy, 20 were male and 15 female. The average age was 46.3 years (range 17-78). INTERVENTION: The treatment is based on the principles and approaches of Ericksonian hypnosis. The first session was mainly dedicated to the evaluation of the impact of tinnitus on the patient's life and to an explanation of hypnosis therapy. The next sessions were "learning sessions" based on relaxation and mental imaging. Exercises were first based on all senses other than hearing. Then they focused on hearing, teaching patients how to modulate sound intensity, and finally how to modulate tinnitus intensity. Patients also learnt self-hypnosis. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S): To evaluate the effect of the treatment, tinnitus was assessed with the Tinnitus Handicap Inventory questionnaire before and after the therapy. Results: After 5 to 10 sessions (mean: 8.09 + -1.92) of Ericksonian hypnosis therapy, the 35 patients were capable of self-hypnosis with the aim of modulating their tinnitus, and the measured THI score fell for all patients. The global score improved significantly from 60:23 before EH therapy to 16.9 at discharge. Within the group, the initial score was distributed as follows: 0% slight, 14% mild, 31% moderate, 31% severe and 23% catastrophic. The t-test for dependent variables revealed significant improvements in all subgroups (p < or = 0.005). CONCLUSIONS: The results of this clinical trial demonstrate that Ericksonian hypnosis, in particular using self-hypnosis, is a promising technique for treating patients with tinnitus. [less ▲]

Hypoxia-inducible factor-1 (HIF-1) is a transcription factor activated by hypoxia. The HIF-1 activation transduction pathway is poorly understood. In this report, we investigated the activation of extracellular regulated kinases (ERK) in hypoxia and their involvement in HIF-1 activation. We demonstrated that in human microvascular endothelial cells-1 (HMEC-1), ERK kinases are activated during hypoxia. Using dominant negative mutants, we showed that ERK1 is needed for hypoxia-induced HIF-1 transactivation activity. Moreover, using a kinase assay and Western blot experiments, we showed that HIF-1alpha is phosphorylated in hypoxia by an ERK-dependent pathway. These results evidence the role of mitogen-activated protein kinase in the transcriptional response to hypoxia. [less ▲]

HIF-1 (hypoxia-inducible factor-1) is the main transcription factor responsible for increased gene expression in hypoxia. The oxygen-dependent regulation of HIF-1 activity occurs at multiple levels in vivo. The mechanisms regulating HIF-1alpha protein expression have been most extensively analyzed, but the ones modulating HIF-1 transcriptional activity remain unclear. Changes in the phosphorylation and/or redox status of HIF-1alpha certainly play a role. Here, we show that ionomycin could activate HIF-1 transcriptional activity in a way that is additive to the effect of hypoxia without affecting HIF-1alpha protein level and HIF-1 DNA binding capacity. In addition, a calmodulin dominant-negative mutant as well as BAPTA, an intracellular calcium chelator, inhibited the hypoxia-induced HIF-1 activation. These results indicate that elevated calcium in hypoxia could participate in HIF-1 activation. PD98059, an inhibitor of the ERK pathway, but not KN-93, an inhibitor of calmodulin kinases II and IV, also blocked HIF-1 activation by hypoxia and by ionomycin. Altogether, these results suggest that calcium and calmodulin would act upstream of ERK in the hypoxia signal transduction pathway leading to enhanced HIF-1 transcriptional activity. [less ▲]

The functional significance of extracellular signal-regulated kinase 2 (ERK2) activation was investigated during shear induced human platelet aggregation (SIPA) in vitro and during shear controlled thrombosis in vivo in intestinal arterioles and venules of wild type (WT) and transgenic (TG) mice with platelet-specific overexpression of human P2X(1) (TG). The conclusions are that P2X(1) and ERK2 both participate in shear stress controlled thrombosis, but ERK2 activation is initiated predominantly via GPIb-VWF interactions. [less ▲]

Erlotinib is an inhibitor of the tyrosine-kinase domain of the epidermal growth factor receptor-1 (EGFR). This drug is used to treat some solid cancers, particularly advanced non-small-cell lung carcinoma. Similar to other EGFR inhibitors, erlotinib is responsible for a series of skin adverse reactions, particularly acneiform lesions. We described the incidental effect of erlotinib on actinic keratoses which became markedly inflamed and showed partial regression. Inflammation appeared to spontaneously decrease while on erlotinib treatment. This reaction in the skin neoplasm is perhaps a visible and accessible model for predicting the effect in the deep-seated neoplasm targeted by the drug. [less ▲]

Le 30 janvier 1594, l’archiduc Ernest, fils de Maximilien II, faisait sa joyeuse entrée à Bruxelles. Il venait en effet d’être nommé gouverneur général des Pays-Bas par son puissant parent, Philippe II. Son séjour aux Pays-Bas allait être de courte durée. Une maladie qui le minait dès avant son départ l’emporta dans la nuit du 20 au 21 février 1595. Personnalité politique de médiocre envergure, malhabile et velléitaire, Ernest apparut comme un fantoche entre les mains du monarque espagnol, ce qui lui valut d’être vilipendé avant de sombrer dans l’oubli. La collection de peintures qu’il constitua durant les derniers mois de sa vie passés aux Pays-Bas mérite pourtant qu’on s’y attarde. Certes de faible ampleur par rapport à celle de son frère, l’empereur Rodolphe II, elle se signalait par son excellent niveau qualitatif, réunissant des œuvres de Hubert Van Eyck, Rogier van der Weyden, Bosch, Floris, Mostaert, Grimmer et Lucas van Valckenborch. Mais sans conteste, c’est une suite des Mois de Bruegel qui en était le plus prestigieux joyau. Elle avait été offerte à l’archiduc par la Ville d’Anvers, lorsque celui-ci fit sa joyeuse entrée dans la cité scaldienne, le 5 juillet 1594. Il y a lieu de réévaluer la place que l’archiduc Ernest occupa dans le contexte du collectionnisme de la fin du XVIe siècle ; elle a été injustement occultée par un intérêt trop exclusivement centré sur Rodolphe II. Il convient notamment de déterminer les circonstances dans lesquelles Ernest de Habsbourg procéda à ses acquisitions, et de voir comment ses choix s’inscrivent dans l’histoire du goût, reflétant un jugement très sûr, ainsi qu'un vif intérêt pour les diverses tendances qu’illustrèrent les peintres des Pays-Bas dans la seconde moitié du XVIe siècle. Enfin, il importe de préciser quel fut le destin de ses collections. L’historique de la fameuse suite de Bruegel, en particulier, appelle maintes remarques. Il est très loin d’être aussi clair et solide qu’on s’est plu à l’affirmer jusqu’ici. [less ▲]
