A previously undocumented marine vertebrate fauna comprising ichthyosaur, plesiosaur, marine crocodilian and fish remains from the Toarcian-Aalenian succession at Lafarge quarry, southern Beaujolais, Rhône, France is described on the basis of both historical collections and new discoveries. The taxonomic composition of the Lafarge quarry marine vertebrate assemblage highlights its cosmopolitan nature and strong relationships with taxa known from elsewhere in Europe. Several groups are recorded for the first time in the Toarcian-Aalenian succession of France, implying new palaeobiogeographic interpretations, and prompting discussion of marine amniote diversity during this interval.

En numerosas novelas, Vargas Llosa aborda los mismo temas que en sus ensayos de manera que se establecen ecos entre ficción y no ficción, ecos que, de una u otra manera, apoyan implícitamente la verdad de los textos literarios por la de los ensayos historiográficos. También el hecho de que el narrador en sus novelas a menudo tenga rasgos autobiográficos evidentes de su autor contribuye a borrar las fronteras entre universo de ficción interno y universo externo. Además, en varias novelas Vargas Llosa tiende a borrar las fronteras entre los géneros, y acerca la novela al ensayo Al comparar El hablador, novela que publicó en 1987, con el ensayo José María Arguedas o las ficciones del indigenismo, de 1996, nos interrogamos acerca de la relación que existe entre las ideas sobre el indigenismo expresadas por Vargas Llosa en la ficción y fuera de ella.

Both members of 15 heterosexual couples with an alcoholic husband (AC) and of 15 matched couples with healthy members (HC) filled out first, the Marital Adjustment Test (Locke & Wallace, 1959), second, the Coopersmith Self-Esteem Inventory (Coopersmith, 1967), and finally, a questionnaire on emotional feeling state in which the participant had to evaluate his or her own emotions and the emotions experienced by his or her partner. Results showed that both AC members reported lower marital satisfaction and a lower level of self-esteem than HC members. Furthermore, they were less congruent with their partner regarding the evaluation of their partner’s emotional feeling states (EFS). These deficits could have repercussions on marital happiness, which itself would have repercussions on the alcoholic’s treatment. [less ▲]

The availability of high-density bovine genotyping arrays made implementation of genomic selection possible in dairy cattle. Development of low-density single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) panels will allow the extension of genomic selection to a larger portion of the population. Prediction of ungenotyped markers, called imputation, is a strategy that allows using the same low-density chips for all traits (and for different breeds). In the present study, we evaluated the accuracy of imputation with low-density genotyping arrays in the Dutch Holstein population. Five different sizes of genotyping arrays were tested, from 384 to 6,000 SNP. According to marker density, the overall allelic imputation error rate obtained with the program DAGPHASE, which relies on linkage disequilibrium and linkage, ranged from 11.7 to 2.0%, and that obtained with the program CHROMIBD, which relies on linkage and the set of all genotyped ancestors, ranged from 10.7 to 3.3%. However, imputation efficiency was influenced by the relationship between low-density and high-density genotyped animals. Animals with both parents genotyped had particularly low imputation error rates: <1% with 1,500 SNP or more. In summary, missing marker alleles can be predicted with 3 to 4% errors with approximately 1 SNP/Mb (approximately 3,000 markers). The CHROMIBD program proved more efficient than DAGPHASE only at lower marker densities or when several genotyped ancestors were available. Future studies are required to measure the effect of these imputation error rates on accuracy of genomic selection with low-density SNP panels. [less ▲]

Molecular biology and technical advances in DNA recombination have ushered in a new era in vaccinology. This article examines the recent development of specific marker vaccines and examines the impact of their use on the diagnosis and prevention of major infectious diseases. Gene-deleted vaccines, DIVA strategies (differentiating infected from vaccinated animals) and similar methods have been successfully applied in the control and eradication of Aujeszky's disease, infectious bovine rhinotracheitis, classical swine fever, foot and mouth disease and, recently, avian influenza. The efficacy and performance of existing marker vaccines and their companion diagnostic tools (which should be assesed by an independent body) are discussed, as are the ways in which these tools are deployed by competent authorities. The limits and the advantages of the use of marker vaccines are carefully analysed in the light of practical experiences. Although these vaccines can limit the speed and the extent of virus dissemination and thus reduce the number of animals slaughtered, marker vaccines are no substitute for sanitary measures. Early detection and warning systems and the quick implementation of sanitary measures, including stamping out, remain key issues in the control of highly contagious diseases. [less ▲]

Summary The International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF) and the International Federation of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine (IFCC) recommend that a marker of bone formation (serum procollagen type I N propeptide, s-PINP) and a marker of bone resorption (serum C-terminal telopeptide of type I collagen, s-CTX) are used as reference analytes for bone turnover markers in clinical studies. Introduction Bone turnover markers (BTM) predict fracture risk, and treatment-induced changes in specific markers account for a substantial proportion of fracture risk reduction. The aims of this report were to determine their clinical potential in the prediction of fracture risk and for monitoring the treatment of osteoporosis and to set an appropriate research agenda. Methods Evidence from prospective studies was gathered through literature review of the PUBMED database between the years 2000 and 2010 and the systematic review of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality up to 2001. Results High levels of BTMs may predict fracture risk independently from bone mineral density in postmenopausal women. They have been used for this purpose in clinical practice for many years, but there is still a need for stronger evidence on which to base practice. BTMs provide pharmacodynamic information on the response to osteoporosis treatment, and as a result, they are widely used for monitoring treatment in the individual. However, their clinical value for monitoring is limited by inadequate appreciation of the sources of variability, by limited data for comparison of treatments using the same BTM and by inadequate quality control. IOF/IFCC recommend one bone formation marker (s-PINP) and one bone resorption marker (s-CTX) to be used as reference markers and measured by standardised assays in observational and intervention studies in order to compare the performance of alternatives and to enlarge the international experience of the application of markers to clinical medicine. Conclusion BTM hold promise in fracture risk prediction and for monitoring treatment. Uncertainties over their clinical use can be in part resolved by adopting international reference standards.
