Evidencia de determinantes de patogenia en las regiones Long Terminal Repeats (LTRs) del genoma del virus de la leucemia bovina (BLV) Sabrina M. Rodríguez1*, Karina Trono2, Leandro R. Jones3 1 Molecular and Cellular Epigenetics, Interdisciplinary Cluster for Applied Genoproteomics (GIGA), University of Liège (ULg), Belgium. 2 Instituto de Virología, CICVyA, Instituto Nacional de Tecnología Agropecuaria INTA-Castelar, CC 25 (1712), Castelar. 3 División de Biología Molecular, Estación de Fotobiología Playa Unión, CC 15, Rawson, Chubut 9103, Argentina. *E-mail: sabrina.rodriguez@ulg.ac.be El resultado de la infección por el virus de la leucemia bovina (BLV) es diverso. La mayoría de los animales infectados resultan portadores asintomáticos (AL) y cerca del 30% desarrolla una condición benigna denominada linfocitosis persistente (LP). La forma tumoral o linfosarcoma (LS) afecta a un 1-5% de los bovinos infectados. Las bases genético-moleculares del desarrollo de las distintas formas clínicas son desconocidas. Las Repeticiones Terminales Largas (Long Terminal Repeats, LTR) del genoma viral constituyen determinantes genéticos de patogenia en el caso de otros retrovirus. Sin embargo, esta posibilidad no ha sido evaluada para el BLV. Los análisis para probar la correlación entre los caracteres clínicos y genotípicos entre especies deben ser corregidos incluyendo la filogenia del grupo. De otra manera, la historia evolutiva compartida puede comprometer la independencia estadística del análisis. Sobre estas bases, el objetivo de este trabajo consistió en estudiar la influencia de las variaciones genéticas de las regiones regulatorias LTR del BLV en el desarrollo de las diferentes formas clínicas de la infección mediante métodos comparativos filogenéticos, cladísticos y probabilísticos. Con este fin, se secuenció la región 5´LTR de 40 provirus obtenidos a partir de bovinos naturalmente infectados con BLV que presentaron las diferentes formas clínicas (AL, PL, LS). Fueron identificadas siete posiciones polimórficas que mostraron una asociación aparente con la presentación clínica. Una reconstrucción de la filogenia del grupo fue realizada a partir de las secuencias de la región env obtenidas para 28 de los 40 provirus estudiados en este trabajo. En conjunto, los análisis comparativos cladísticos y probabilísticos basados en el alineamiento empírico de las secuencias y la filogenia del grupo sugieren que las posiciones 41 y 56 del 5´LTR podrían estar correlacionadas con la presentación clínica. Los análisis probabilísticos indicaron además una asociación con la patogénesis viral para las posiciones 373, 450, 494 y 505, aunque los soportes estadísticos correspondientes fueron menores en comparación con los soportes obtenidos para las posiciones 41 y 56. Estas observaciones indican que las regiones LTR del BLV podrían constituir determinantes de patogenia. [less ▲]

L'article s'interroge sur la nature de l'expertise en sciences sociales. En partant de la définition de l'expertise en général par Philippe Roqueplo, on défend que la sociologie ne peut prétendre à une connaissance scientifique que dans le cadre des questions qu'elle pose elle-même en tant que discipline. Cela ne la dispense pas de répondre aux questions que se pose la société et, en particulier, les pouvoirs publics, mais les réponses n'ont pas le statut de réponses scientifiques. [less ▲]

Migraine is a disorder in which central nervous sytem dysfunction might play a pivotal role. Electroneurophysiology seems thus particularly suited to study its pathophysiology. We have extensively reviewed evoked potential and transcranial magnetic stimulation studies performed in migraineurs in order to identify their pathophysiologic significance. Publications available to us were completed by a Medline search. Retrieved and personal data were compared with respect to methodology and interpreted according to present knowledge on cortical information processing. Results are in part contradictory which appears to be method-, patient- and disease- related. Nonetheless, both evoked potential and transcranial magnetic stimulation studies demonstrate that the cerebral cortex, and possibly subcortical structures, are dysfunctioning interictally in both migraine with and without aura. These electrophysiologic abnormalities tend to normalise just before and during an attack and some of them seem to have a clear familial and predisposing character. Besides the studies of magnetophosphenes which have yielded contrasting results, chiefly because the method is not sufficiently reliable, most recent electrophysiologic investigations of cortical activities in migraine favour deficient habituation and decreased preactivation cortical excitability as the predominant interictal dysfunctions. We propose that the former is a consequence of the latter and that it could favour both interictal cognitive disturbances as well as a cerebral metabolic disequilibrium that may play a role in migraine pathogenesis. To summarize, electrophysiologic studies demonstrate in migraine between attacks a cortical, and possibly subcortical, dysfunction of which the hallmark is deficient habituation. [less ▲]

This research compares the spatial pattern of services provided in hospitals just before the introduction of the moratorium stopping the growth of the hospital sector (1979) with the current situation (2008) by their relationship to urban hierarchy. The method used to analyze this relationship is the application of the statistic coefficient ϒ. This work shows that this relationship is significant for the two studied periods. However, the presence of a nearby faculty of medicine appears to interfere significantly on this relationship. The study also highlights a slight tendency to the strengthening of the aforementioned relationship. Besides, it demonstrates the existence of different spatial behaviours depending on the type of service. [less ▲]

INTRODUCTION: Mesalazine remains the first line treatment for the induction and the maintenance of remission in mild to moderate ulcerative colitis (UC). Its efficacy as a maintenance treatment after a first flare treated with corticosteroids has not been specifically studied. The aims of our work were to study a cohort of UC patients treated with mesalazine after a course of oral systemic corticosteroids and to identify predictive factors of relapse and of colectomy. MATERIAL AND METHOD: We studied retrospectively a cohort of 143 UC patients, who never received immunosuppressive drugs, and treated for the first time with oral corticosteroids for a flare. Among patients responding to corticosteroids, we studied the group treated by mesalazine after the flare. RESULTS: Fifty% (n=52) achieved a complete clinical remission with steroid weaning. In this group, 67% (n=35) received oral mesalazine. Seventy-five % of patients treated by mesalazine relapsed (median 29 months, range: 1-156). Fourteen % required a colectomy (median 11 months, range: 1-24). Kaplan Meier curve showed a relapse rate and a colectomy rate over one year of 26% and 11% respectively. In multivariate analysis, male gender and short duration of disease were predictive factors of the time-to-relapse. No factor was predictive of time-to-colectomy. CONCLUSION: Maintenance efficacy of mesalazine over one year after a first course of corticosteroids for a disease flare is reasonably high. The longer-term relapse rate becomes higher in male patients with a short disease duration. An immunosuppressive treatment could be discussed in case of further relapse despite improved medication-adherence. Medication-adherence should first be assessed and promoted. An immunosuppressive treatment could be discussed in case of further relapse despite improved medication-adherence. [less ▲]

West Africa is extremely vulnerable to climate change. This paper first analyses recent trends in extreme rainfall and temperatures recorded at six synoptic stations in Benin. Results show that rainfall is declining while temperatures are increasing significantly. Cold nights (1st TMin percentile) are decreasing very significantly while hot days (99th TMax percentile) are increasing very significantly. No trend is observed in the frequency of extreme rainfall events. Then, rural populations of the plateau of Abomey were interviewed about their perception of climatic risks. They highlighted that major risks are spatiotemporal rain variability and rainfall shortage / excess (drought / flood), strong winds, and excessive temperature. Confronted with these hazards, local farmers are developing on their own endogenous strategies, which are mostly not rational and far from solving climatic hazards in a sustainable way. More detailed studies are needed in order to identify together with these communities pragmatic and sustainable adaptive options. [less ▲]
