Recent progress in medical care has greatly increased the number of people who survive acute brain damage. Doctors can save the lives of many patients who suffer trauma to the brain or a lack of oxygen, but if the damage is severe, the victim will-slip into a coma, individuals in this condition do not open their eyes; at best, they will show some reflex movements to the limbs.

L’ézétimibe (Ezetrol®) inhibe sélectivement l’absorption intestinale du cholestérol et des phytostérols apparentés. Son mécanisme d’action résulte en un effet hypocholestérolémiant synergique en combinaison avec une statine, inhibant la synthèse hépatique de cholestérol, ce qui a conduit à la commercialisation d’une combinaison fixe ézétimibe-simvastatine (Inegy®). L’ézétimibe a été plus spécifiquement étudié chez les personnes avec un diabète de type 2 qui sont confrontées à un risque cardio-vasculaire particulièrement élevé. Le but de cet article est de présenter les avancées et les particularités en ce qui concerne l’utilisation de l’ézétimibe dans la population diabétique de type 2. [less ▲]

Las distintas contribuciones constituyen sendas revisiones de las actitudes y resonancias que la rebelión del EZLN ha suscitado entre científicos, intelectuales y escritores, en México, pero también en otras partes del mundo, desde sus orígenes en 1994 hasta 2006. En la primera parte las contribuciones exploran las resonancias en el ámbito de las ciencias sociales y naturales, luego se pasa a revisar posiciones de intelectuales y finalmente se examina cómo la rebelión zapatista se ha convertido en un tema literario que inspiró a dos escritores españoles y a tres importantes escritores mexicanos. En calidad de cofundador de la Unión de Científicos Comprometidos con la Sociedad (UCCS), Iván Azuara Monter analiza cómo el fenómeno zapatista incidió y resonó sobre todo entre los practicantes de las llamadas ciencias duras y la investigación regional, un tema que ha sido muy poco trabajado hasta hoy. En cambio, Óscar García Agustín y Bernard Duterme se centran en las interpretaciones de la rebelión zapatista que hicieron científicos sociales y políticos de diferentes tendencias y pertenecientes a distintas escuelas. García Agustín toma como hilo conductor las manifestaciones en torno a la conceptualización por parte de algunos académicos de izquierda que se pronunciaron sobre el EZLN, entre ellos John Holloway, Raúl Zibechi, Antonio Negri y Atilio Boron. Duterme también se propone entender lo que distingue y acerca las diversas aproximaciones sociológicas al EZLN pero percibe sobre todo divergencias entre el enfoque marxista por un lado y la perspectiva representada por el sociólogo Alain Touraine por el otro. Por su parte, Anne Huffschmid y Juan Pellicer estudian la interacción entre el nuevo zapatismo y determinados intelectuales quienes, en el sentido de mediadores culturales o comentaristas políticos, han publicado sus opiniones en torno al EZLN. Huffschmid, después de recapitular algunos factores que integran una particular semiótica de la resistencia y que han resonado en distintas escenas de recepción, recrea algunas de las posturas centrales de intelectuales simpatizantes, y también adversarios, en relación con el nuevo zapatismo. Asimismo se ocupa del actual desencantamiento del EZLN con buena parte de la opinión pública, y que explica por quiebres comunicativos y por un giro sectario del grupo armado que parece traicionar a su propio imaginario político. El texto de Juan Pellicer se concentra en las respuestas dadas por Octavio Paz, en cuyo discurso descubre una evolución notable en cuanto a la visión del indígena al que presenta como piedra de toque de la nación en El laberinto de la soledad y al que percibe como un estorbo a la modernización de México en los textos sobre el EZLN. La contribución de Kristine Vanden Berghe vuelve brevemente sobre la postura de Octavio Paz pero lo hace en el marco de un análisis del ensayo de Manuel Vázquez Montalbán, Marcos : El señor de los espejos. El discurso del escritor catalán, por su parte, es abordado en función de su relación intertextual con la novela Turistas del ideal de Ignacio Vidal-Folch, una sátira de los intelectuales que apoyan al EZLN. La imagen tradicional del intelectual paratópico que se identifica con cuantos escapen de las líneas de demarcación dentro de la sociedad, como es el caso de los indígenas, es desplazada en esta sátira a favor de un intelectual hipócrita e inconsciente de sus propias contradicciones. Entre los –relativamente pocos- poetas y escritores que se han referido al EZLN en su creación literaria, también encontramos a tres autores importantes de Chiapas que, directamente interpelados por el movimiento armado, escribieron sobre él. Jan De Vos estudia estos textos que son, respectivamente, de la pluma del cuentista Eraclio Zepeda y de los poetas Juan Bañuelos y Efraín Bartolomé. En la reflexión que nos propone, De Vos suscita la emoción que la lectura del trío chiapaneco le produce y la combina con la mirada crítica que le impone su disciplina de científico social. Procura interrogar a estos autores que admira sobre los motivos y la manera en que se dejaron interpelar por el movimiento rebelde que en 1994 estalló en las montañas y selvas de su tierra natal.

PURPOSE: The aim is to report our observations regarding the role of F-18 FDG PET in children's infectious processes. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A presentation is made of 3 neonatal infections unresponsive to treatment, 2 invasive infections in immunocompromised children, and 1 discitis in an immunocompetent child. PET or PET/CT was performed to address a specific question pertaining to the management of the diseases. Results were correlated with the clinical outcome. The impact on patient management is discussed. RESULTS: In 1 neonate, PET localized the infection in a bone which allowed surgical curettage. In another one, it localized the infection in recently renewed exogenous material and led to subsequent removal. It was negative in the third one, whose evolution was rapidly favorable. In the immunocompromised children, treatment of invasive infection was adapted according to the metabolic inflammatory activity of the disease. In a limping child with slight abnormalities on bone scintigraphy but major misleading involvement on MRI, PET/CT demonstrated hypermetabolism limited to a disc, thus avoiding further invasive procedures. CONCLUSIONS: Although not meant as a first choice examination, F-18 FDG PET should be considered in difficult cases of neonatal infection or in challenging diagnoses like discitis in the young child. It provides more accurate staging and treatment monitoring of the inflammatory process in invasive infections of immunocompromised children. [less ▲]

Purpose: The aim of this study was to assess rheumatoid arthritis (RA) synovitis with positron emission tomography (PET) and F-18-fluorodeoxyglucose (F-18-FDG) in comparison with dynamic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ultrasonography (US). Methods: Sixteen knees in 16 patients with active RA were assessed with PET, MRI and US at baseline and 4 weeks after initiation of anti-TNF-alpha treatment. All studies were performed within 4 days. Visual and semi-quantitative (standardised uptake value, SUV) analyses of the synovial uptake of FDG were performed. The dynamic enhancement rate and the static enhancement were measured after i.v. gadolinium injection and the synovial thickness was measured in the medial, lateral patellar and suprapatellar recesses by US. Serum levels of C-reactive protein (CRP) and metalloproteinase-3 (MMP-3) were also measured. Results: PET was positive in 69% of knees while MRI and US were positive in 69% and 75%. Positivity on one imaging technique was strongly associated with positivity on the other two. PET-positive knees exhibited significantly higher SUVs, higher MRI parameters and greater synovial thickness compared with PET-negative knees, whereas serum CRP and MMP-3 levels were not significantly different. SUVs were significantly correlated with all MRI parameters, with synovial thickness and with serum CRP and MMP-3 levels at baseline. Changes in SUVs after 4 weeks were also correlated with changes in MRI parameters and in serum CRP and MMP-3 levels, but not with changes in synovial thickness. Conclusion: F-18-FDG PET is a unique imaging technique for assessing the metabolic activity of synovitis. The PET findings are correlated with MRI and US assessments of the pannus in RA, as well as with the classical serum parameter of inflammation, CRP, and the synovium-derived parameter, serum MMP-3. Further studies are warranted to establish the place of metabolic imaging of synovitis in RA. [less ▲]

Purpose: The aim of this study was to retrospectively evaluate the performance of positron emission tomography (PET) with F-18-fluorodeoxyglucose (F-18-FDG) in children with lymphomas, at various stages of their disease. Methods: Twenty-eight children (mean age 12.5 years, 14 girls, 14 boys) with Hodgkin's disease (HD, n=17) or non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL, n= 11) were evaluated. Patients were investigated at initial staging (n=19), early in the course of treatment (n=19), at the end of treatment (n=16) and during long-term follow-up (n=19). A total of 113 whole-body PET studies were performed on dedicated scanners. PET results were compared with the results of conventional methods (CMs) such as physical examination, laboratory studies, chest X-rays, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasonography and bone scan when available. Results: At initial evaluation (group 1), PET changed the disease stage and treatment in 10.5% of the cases. In early evaluation of the response to treatment (group 2), PET failed to predict two relapses and one incomplete response to treatment. In this group, however, PET did not show any false positive results. There were only 4/75 false positive results for PET among patients studied at the end of treatment (group 3, specificity 94%) or during the systematic follow-up (group 4, specificity 95%), as compared with 27/75 for CMs (specificity 54% and 66%, respectively). Conclusion: F-18-FDG-PET is a useful tool for evaluating children with lymphomas. Large prospective studies are needed to appreciate its real impact on patient management. [less ▲]

This paper presents the adaptation of the LARSP (Language Assessment, Remediation and Screening Procedure) (Crystal et al., 1976) from English into French based on the analysis of a corpus of French speaking children ranging between the ages of 18 months and 5 years. Included is a description of particularities of French morphosyntax and the ensuing adaptations that are reflected on the new French LARSP (F-LARSP) chart. The LARSP is a linguistic profile commonly used by researchers and clinicians to carry out “comprehensive and consistent linguistic analysis” (Ball, 1999); more specifically a detailed analysis of the grammar and morphology of children’s spontaneous language samples. The profile was developed in a manner that allows the user to clearly see the child’s grammatical strengths and weaknesses in relation to their chronological age. This is made possible by the notion that the order in which syntactic structures are acquired is relatively stable, at least until the approximate age of 5. Correlation of a child’s morphosyntactic production to their age provides the therapist with vital information regarding an array of areas including the possible diagnosis of language impairment, remediation planning, and measuring treatment efficacy carried out since the last profiling session. The tool is therefore useful for professionals working with children who are suspected of or who have been diagnosed with having forms of language difficulties such as Specific Language Impairment (SLI) where morphology and syntax are commonly affected. The utility of the LARSP, originally designed for Anglophone use, has led to its adaptation to several other languages. Those which have been published for an international audience include Welsh (1988), Dutch (1987), Irish (1990) and Persian (1998). [less ▲]
