The immune system appears to play a role in the development of squamous intraepithelial lesions (SIL) and their progression to cancer. We have developed a technique to isolate and cultivate lymphocytes either from the epithelium or from the underlying stroma of small biopsies from the normal exocervix, the transformation zone (TZ) and SIL. The majority of cells derived from the epithelium of all biopsies were CD8+ T cells. No major difference was observed for the lymphocyte phenotype. Among all cytokines tested by ELISA (IL10, IL4 and IFNγ), only IL10 was significantly higher in the TZ in comparison with the exocervix. In cultures derived from the stroma, a decreased percentage in T cells was observed in the TZ and SIL in comparison with the exocervix. This decrease in T cells concerned CD8+ (SIL) and TCRγδ+ T cells (TZ and SIL). We did not observe any difference in IL10 or IL4 production, although patients with SIL produced more IFNγ. The higher levels of IL10 production by lymphocytes derived from the epithelium of the TZ might contribute to the predisposition of this region to cervical carcinogenesis. [less ▲]

Polymorphisms in the region of the interleukin-28B (IL28B) gene have recently been associated with spontaneous and treatment induced clearance of hepatitis C virus infection. The specific mechanisms of how IL28B polymorphisms affect HCV suppression remain unknown. It is a matter of ongoing debate how to incorporate the IL28B data into the current treatment algorithms with pegylated interferon-alpha and ribavirin. The eventual role of the IL28B genotype in new therapeutic regimes with direct antiviral agents needs to be explored in the ongoing and future clinical studies with these agents. [less ▲]

Abdominal actinomycosis is a rare infectious disease caused by Actinomyces israelii, a gram-positive anaerobic saprophyte germ that is a normal inhabitant of the upper intestinal tract in humans. Actinomyces israelii rarely cause abdominal infections or actinomycosis. Abdominal actinomysosis is characterised by fistulae and abscesses and may mimic cancer or inflammatory bowel disease. Abdominal actinomycosis is difficult to diagnose preoperatively, and often require surgical removal of the diseased tissue, allowing pathologists for giving the definitive diagnosis, revealed by characteristic "sulfur granules". The authors report herein the case of a 47-year-old man who presented with diarrhoea and abdominal pain. Abdominal computed tomography evoked complicated inflammatory bowel disease and surgical procedure was decided. Laparoscopic exploration did not provide further significant information, and laparotomy with diseased bowel resection was performed. Pathology demonstrated "sulfur granules" and allowed the diagnosis of abdominal actinomycosis. This case demonstrated that abdominal actinomycosis should be included in the differential diagnosis when computed tomography shows an infiltrative and inflammatory mass. [less ▲]

Il existe des parentés remarquables entre certaines caractéristiques du roman d’aventures et les premières fictions d’anticipation françaises. Il n'y a pas seulement que la notion d’"aventure" est floue, composant une catégorie infiltrante tenant de l’hypergenre ou du genre parasite, mais il existe aussi des propriétés communes formant un genre hybride de « science-fiction d’aventures» qui compose un corpus important, pourtant peu considéré par les études littéraires consacrées au récit d'anticipation. Envisagé sous cet angle, tout un pan de la production d’anticipation de la seconde moitié du XIXe siècle apparaît comme marqué par le déplacement géographique autant sinon davantage que par le voyage temporel, cultivant une plasticité qui permet dans certains cas des reprises à l’identique ou presque. Ce sont ces procédés d’hybridation qui font l'objet de cette communication, à partir d’un type de récits généralement considéré comme un sous-genre matriciel de l’aventure, la robinsonnade, considérée dans quatre romans du dernier quart du XIXe siècle: André Laurie, Les Exilés de la Terre; Georges Le Faure, Les Robinsons lunaires; Jules Verne, L'Île à hélice; Paul Adam, Lettres de Malaisie.

Among the Greek deities related to motherhood, Eileithyia seems to be specifically concerned with parturition. If we carefully take into account her association with Artemis and with Hera, it becomes evident that Eileithyia is involved both at the same time during labour and in the tokos, the critical moment of childbirth itself. Moreover, she is thought to safeguard the child too. Accordingly, Eileithyia’s task, which is to assist in bringing a child to the light, persists throughout the process of filiation and the later development of children. [less ▲]

Practices of legal and bureaucratic categorisation, as well normative practices of naming are key within the endless construction and reinvention of nation-states. Such practices are part of larger and complex configurations of power along with institutions, more or less formal-informal practices of social control and governing. Today’s production and circulation of categories such “illegal migrant”, “refugee”, “young delinquent”, etc. need to be thought of in relation to categories such as “the national citizen” and the core values and principles attached to such categories. In this paper, I will explore how the dialectics of legality-illegality ─ and practices of visibilisation and invisibilisation ─ can be problematized in relation to a dual process: the ritual affirmation of the Party-state authority and the identity formation of rural migrant workers in South-China. I will argue that such politics ought to be read within the political economy of South-China or what Lee Ching-Kwan has called “decentralized legal authoritarianism” (Lee 2007). By looking at the production and circulation of the category of “the three no’s” (sanwu), I will show that the ambiguity and the flexibility of how this category is used is central in order to account for its symbolic and performative power.

Transmission is a matter of life or death for pathogen lineages and can therefore be considered as the main motor of their evolution. Gammaherpesviruses are archetypal pathogenic persistent viruses which have evolved to be transmitted in presence of specific immune response. Identifying their mode of transmission and their mechanisms of immune evasion is therefore essential to develop prophylactic and therapeutic strategies against these infections. As the known human gammaherpesviruses, Epstein-Barr virus and Kaposi's Sarcoma-associated Herpesvirus are host-specific and lack a convenient in vivo infection model; related animal gammaherpesviruses, such as murine gammaherpesvirus-68 (MHV-68), are commonly used as general models of gammaherpesvirus infections in vivo. To date, it has however never been possible to monitor viral excretion or virus transmission of MHV-68 in laboratory mice population. In this study, we have used MHV-68 associated with global luciferase imaging to investigate potential excretion sites of this virus in laboratory mice. This allowed us to identify a genital excretion site of MHV-68 following intranasal infection and latency establishment in female mice. This excretion occurred at the external border of the vagina and was dependent on the presence of estrogens. However, MHV-68 vaginal excretion was not associated with vertical transmission to the litter or with horizontal transmission to female mice. In contrast, we observed efficient virus transmission to naive males after sexual contact. In vivo imaging allowed us to show that MHV-68 firstly replicated in penis epithelium and corpus cavernosum before spreading to draining lymph nodes and spleen. All together, those results revealed the first experimental transmission model for MHV-68 in laboratory mice. In the future, this model could help us to better understand the biology of gammaherpesviruses and could also allow the development of strategies that could prevent the spread of these viruses in natural populations.
