Background: PRP, obtained from centrifuged autologous blood, contains a large quantity of growth factors, which may enhance the tissue healing processes. Local infiltration of PRP represents a relatively new treatment for tendinopathies. To date, no side effects have been reported after infiltration of PRP to treat tendinopathy. Case report: A 35-year-old patient had a right upper patellar tendinopathy which was resistant to all conservative treatments for more than 6 months. The patient was a type 1 diabetic (well controlled). He had an intratendinous infiltration of 6 mL of PRP (8.105 platelets/mm3, almost no red or white blood cells) after disinfection but without local anaesthetic. Immediately following the infiltration, local cryotherapy was performed for 15 minutes. NSAIDs were avoided, but class-1 or -2 pain-killers were authorised if necessary. A standardised sub-maximal eccentric rehabilitation should have been started 1 week after. However, the patient experienced local swelling with erythema, increased heating and pain which appeared just underneath the patella, but without biological inflammatory syndrome. A great Doppler signal in a thicker patellar tendon was observed by US, but there was no sign of local infectious disease demonstrated by either CT or MRI. However, the local inflammation did not decrease after a progressive 3-week treatment of local cryotherapy, local and oral NSAIDs and colchicine 1 mg. Thus, an insidious infection was suspected, even though there was neither evidence of biological inflammatory syndrome nor sign of infectious lesion on imagery examination. An antibiotic therapy (rifampicine 600 mg + minocycline 100 mg) was initiated for 3 months. Finally, a 3-phase bone scintigraphy suggested the presence of a complex regional pain syndrome type 1 treated by a classical physical therapy and concomitant class-2 pain killers. The evolution was favourable after 6 months of symptomatic treatment, and the pain decreased to a level similar to that before the infiltration of PRP. Discussion/Conclusions: This case report draws attention to potential side effects that are linked to this new therapy by infiltration of platelet rich plasma in case of tendinopathy, in particular when used in patients with type 1 diabetes. Thus, the balance between benefits and risks must be carefully evaluated before using this treatment in patients with type 1 diabetes.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) contains a large quantity of growth factors, which may enhance tendon healing processes. Local infiltration of PRP represents a relatively new treatment for tendinopathies. To date, no side effects have been reported after infiltration of PRP to treat tendinopathy. We reported a case of exuberant inflammatory reaction after one infiltration of PRP to treat jumper’s knee in a type 1 diabetic patient who was 35 years old. Injections of PRP must be proposed after careful consideration for patients with morbidity risks linked to insulin-dependent diabetes. [less ▲]

The aim of this study is, initially, to compare the attempts at urban reintegration of certain industrial activities at the present time with the considerable ex-urbanisation movement of activities which has been evident since 1960. We then go on to analyse the strenghts and weaknesses of the two trends and seek to define the likely future of the processes and put forward a new urban strategy for a more efficient policy as to receiving certain activities in urban surroundings.

Functional and effective connectivity of cortical areas are essential for normal brain function under different behavioral states. Appropriate cortical activity during sleep and wakefulness is ensured by the balanced activity of excitatory and inhibitory circuits. Ultimately, fast, millisecond cortical rhythmic oscillations shape cortical function in time and space. On a much longer time scale, brain function also depends on prior sleep-wake history and circadian processes. However,much remains to be established on how the brain operates at the neuronal level in humans during sleep and wakefulness. A key limitation of human neuroscience is the difficulty in isolating neuronal excitation/inhibition drive in vivo. Therefore, computational models are noninvasive approaches of choice to indirectly access hidden neuronal states. In this review, we present a physiologically driven in silico approach, Dynamic Causal Modelling (DCM), as a means to comprehend brain function under different experimental paradigms. Importantly, DCM has allowed for the understanding of how brain dynamics underscore brain plasticity, cognition, and different states of consciousness. In a broader perspective, noninvasive computational approaches, such as DCM, may help to puzzle out the spatial and temporal dynamics of human brain function at different behavioural states.

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.

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.
