In their later stages low grade lymphoma are incurable. These lymphomas being radio-sensitive, a treatment of metabolic radioimmunotherapy, using monoclonal antibodies (anti-CD20) as the carrier has been developed. The aim of this treatment is to use these antibodies to target radiation to tumor tissues while limiting toxicity to normal cells. Ibritumomab tiuxetan (Zevalin) is currently prescribed for patients with relapsed or refractory low-grade follicular lymphoma after rituximab treatment. This outpatient treatment has a high level of overall response rate including complete response and that for a long period. The side effects are essentially hematological and reversible. In the near future many more indications should become apparent and Zevalin should become an important tool in the B-cell lymphoma (low and high grade). [less ▲]

Les taux d’androgènes peuvent être diminués dans de nombreuses situations pathologiques et iatrogènes, mais également physiologiquement chez la femme âgée. La déficience androgénique affecte de nombreux systèmes. La supplémentation androgénique améliorerait les fonctions cognitives, l’humeur, la libido, la qualité osseuse, la force et la fonction musculaire. Toutefois, ce traitement, n’est actuellement pas recommandé en routine par les Guidelines de l’Endocrine Society. Les androgènes peuvent entraîner de l’acné, une augmentation de la pilosité, une raucité de la voix et une clitorimégalie, ces deux derniers effets indésirables étant rares. Ils influencent également le système cardiovasculaire en modifiant le profil lipidique, mais les données restent controversées. La supplémentation par DHEA a été étudiée chez des femmes atteintes d’insuffisance surrénalienne. Il semblerait que 50 mg/j de DHEA soit la dose adéquate pour restaurer des taux d’androgènes physiologiques et améliorer ainsi les symptômes sans observer d’effets secondaires majeurs. Il est toutefois recommandé de poursuivre les recherches parmi les groupes de patientes atteintes de déficience androgénique afin d’en définir précisément le syndrome clinique et d’étudier les effets de l’androgénothérapie.

Back pain is very frequent in western countries and it represents a very high social cost. The treatment is based on five modalities: medication, physiotherapy, invasive technics, rehabilitation programs and psycho-social approaches. Several treatments may be proposed simultaneously and introduced gradually. Steroid administration by epidural injection is frequently used in Belgium, even though no prospective randomised studies have shown a real benefit over the long term. The indications for epidural injection must be carefully chosen. These include subacute pain (less than six months) in the lower limbs despite a well observed medical treatment. Patients are invited to give informed consent; the technic must be performed in an appropriate environment by an experienced physician. The initial treatment of back pain is medical. This pathology is multifactorial and the relief of symptoms is often incomplete. The patient should be urged to feel responsible for and involved in his treatment. [less ▲]

Vitamin A deficiency produces anemia and altered iron status. In this study with rats we tested two hypotheses regarding vitamin A deficiency: (1) that it impairs erythropoiesis, leading to an increased red cell turnover, and (2) that it inhibits the glycosylation of transferrin. Erythropoietic activity was assessed indirectly by determining the myeloid:erythroid ratio in bone marrow smears, the number of erythroid colonies in the red pulp of spleen, the blood reticulocyte index, and zinc protoporphyrin and plasma transferrin receptor concentrations. Transferrin glycosylation was assessed by measuring the sialic acid content of transferrin. The effects of vitamin A deficiency were compared with those of iron deficiency. Iron deficiency produced anemia and low iron levels in organs. Vitamin A deficiency produced low levels of plasma and hepatic retinol, and it induced decreased plasma total iron-binding capacity and raised iron levels in tibia and spleen. Short- but not long-term iron deficiency reduced the number of erythroid colonies in spleen; vitamin A deficiency had no influence. Neither iron nor vitamin A deficiency influenced the myeloid:erythroid ratio in bone marrow smears and the blood reticulocyte production. Plasma transferrin receptor and erythrocyte zinc protoporphyrin concentrations were not affected by vitamin A deficiency but increased with iron deficiency. Vitamin A deficiency did not stimulate erythrocyte breakdown, as indicated by unaltered plasma lactate dehydrogenase activity and reduced plasma total bilirubin levels. Both vitamin A and iron deficiencies raised the proportion of multiple sialylated transferrins in plasma. Thus, we have not found evidence that vitamin A deficiency affects erythropoiesis and erythrocyte turnover. The iron accumulation in spleen and bone marrow may be related to reduced iron transport due to inhibition of transferrin synthesis rather than inhibition of transferrin sialylation. [less ▲]

Depuis 2002, l’algue invasive Caulerpa racemosa var. cylindracea a été signalée au niveau de la Corse. Elle apparaît pour la première fois, en 2008, au niveau de la baie de Calvi (Corse). Depuis cette époque, le nombre et la surface des sites envahis augmentent. L'analyse fine de l'évolution spatio-temporelle de sa distribution dans la zone prospectée confirme que C. racemosa colonise d'abord les sites profonds. A partir des différents stades de colonisation, un indice paysager (Indice Caulerpa racemosa: "I.Ca.r") adapté à la plongée en scaphandre autonome a été élaboré. "I.Ca.r" qui tient compte de l'expérience du plongeur, du type de substrat et de la superficie colonisée est un code à 8 caractères. Il permet une comparaison spatiale de sites colonisés et également une analyse de l'évolution temporelle de la colonisation. Mis au point en Baie de Calvi, l'indice paysager "I.Ca.r" peut être appliqué sur la Corse et sur l'ensemble de La Méditerranée. La méthodologie simple, résumée sur une fiche pourrait être distribuée dans les clubs de plongée et les informations envoyées au réseau Caulerpe par exemple. [less ▲]

Parasitological data of various malarial studies performed in the Congo where Plasmodium falciparum malaria is holoendemic in rural and suburban zones between 1988 and 1991, were analyzed with the intention of establishing diagnosis and prognosis value of Plasmodium falciparum parasitaemia in areas with high perennial transmission. In such an area Congolese school children (6-10 years old) had 88% P. falciparum index, this is the same percentage as that for children hospitalized with a pernicious attack. However, the parasite load is distributed differently; parasitaemia is greater than 6,000 asexual form for P. falciparum (af/Pf/µl) in only 4,6% of cases in the former group, versus 67% in the second group. A threshold of 10,000 af/Pf/µl above which the Plasmodium infection triggers a febrile attack in semi-immune children, is confirmed in school children in a rural context where the factor of taking antimalarial drugs within the preceding days is negligible: three out of four children with levels above this threshold are febrile versus 4,1% (7 out of 170) with lower blood parasite levels. Some adults where also asymptomatic carriers but much less frequently and with lower mean parasitaemia levels. The parasite load mirrors the clinical severity although this concept can be misleading as an individual prognostic criterion and foor hospital studies carried out in areas where multiple drug administration before hospitalization is common. For the studies recently performed in Brazzaville, the 5% threshold of parasitized red cells, the WHO severity criterion was never reached in asymptomatic subject or in cases of simple attack; it was reached in one out of two cases of pernicious attack.

For a normally distributed variable, the index of atypicality associated with a measurement of that variable is defined as the probability of finding a result closer to the mean of the reference population than the one actually observed. The method extends straight forwardly to multivariate situations, thus providing a joint interpretation of multiple observations recorded on the same subject. In human palaeontology, atypicality indices allow to analyze and to compare the results obtained from variables closely associated with specific traits of the morphology. We briefly outline the principle of the method and give a computer program to carry out the calculations. Finally, we apply the use of univariate and multivariate atypicality indices to data recorded on 53 Upper Palaeolithic skulls. [less ▲]
