MRI guided percutaneous abdominal biopsy was evaluated in an animal model, using a closed magnet and different types of needles. Thirty-six single pass biopsies were performed in 6 piglets with 6 types of MR compatible needles. Virtual targets of a diameter of 2 cm were drawn on the images of the right and left lobe of the liver and the upper and lower poles of both kidneys. FMPSPGR sequences were applied during an apnea of 19 to 23 seconds in axial, sagittal, coronal or axial oblique planes using a closed 1.0 T magnet and the body coil. Piglets were autopsied 1 hour after the procedure. Mean duration of the procedure was 16.9 (11-37) minutes; mean number of acquisitions per procedure was 5.9 (3-12); mean number of redirections of the needle was 0.6 (0-4). Pathological samples from the liver and kidneys of good quality were obtained in 22/36 (72.2%) cases. A subcapsular hematoma was observed in 18/24 (75.0%) cases of renal biopsies and in 1/12 (8.3%) of hepatic biopsies. No statistically significant correlation could be established between duration of the procedure and site of biopsy and between the type of biopsy needle and complication (p = 0.18 to 0.85). In conclusion, MRI guided percutaneous needle biopsy in the abdomen is a reliable technique in piglets using a closed magnet. [less ▲]

Manganese-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (ME-MRI), blood oxygen-level-dependent functional MRI (BOLD fMRI) and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) can now be applied to animal species as small as mice or songbirds. These techniques confirmed previous findings but are also beginning to reveal new phenomena that were difficult or impossible to study previously. These imaging techniques will lead to major technical and conceptual advances in systems neurosciences. We illustrate these new developments with studies of the song control and auditory systems in songbirds, a spatially organized neuronal circuitry that mediates the acquisition, production and perception of complex learned vocalizations. This neural system is an outstanding model for studying vocal learning, brain steroid hormone action, brain plasticity and lateralization of brain function. [less ▲]

Early detection of progressive multifocal leucoencephalopathy (PML) in the setting of natalizumab therapy currently is performed by rapid evaluation of new symptoms occurring in treated patients. The role of MR scanning has not been investigated but holds promise since MR detection is highly sensitive for PML lesions. The authors report a case of presymptomatic PML of the posterior fossa detected by MR scans. Immediate suspension of natalizumab and plasma exchanges resulted in a rapid decline of natalizumab serum concentration. Intravenous steroids started together with plasma exchanges followed by an oral tapering course were used to minimise the immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome. No symptoms (beyond mild headache) developed, and the repeat PCR for JC Virus (JCV) DNA detection performed 10 weeks later was negative. This case suggests that: (1) periodic brain MR scans may detect signs of presymptomatic PML in MS patients treated with natalizumab, (2) corticosteroid management of inflammatory reaction may contribute to optimal control of the immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome routinely seen with natalizumab-associated PML and (3) early radiological detection of PML can have an excellent outcome even in a clinically critical region and despite prior immunosuppressant exposure. The potential benefit of regular MR scanning just using the T2/FLAIR modalities could be further investigated in order to detect early natalizumab-associated PML, leading to benign outcomes.

Training results in marked modelling of the subchondral bone of the carpus, but the effect of training on the subchondral bone of the distal tarsal joints is unknown. The aim of this study was to determine whether training influenced modelling of the third and central tarsal bones in Thoroughbred horses. Twelve untrained Thoroughbred horses were divided into 2 groups. Group 1 underwent a 19 week progressive training regimen on a high speed treadmill. Group 2 were walked for 40 min daily. Images of left tarsi were obtained by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with a 0.5 Tesla superconducting magnet using a spin echo sequence. Sagittal and oblique sagittal slices were made perpendicular to the articular surfaces of the intertarsal joints and were analysed using image analysis software to measure the proportion of dense subchondral bone in the dorsal facet of each bone. Mean +/- s.d. percentage area of dense subchondral bone in the dorsal facet of the central tarsal bone in Group 1 was 47 +/- 8 medially, 46 +/- 4 sagitally and 50 +/- 11 dorsolaterally, whereas in Group 2 it was 39 +/- 16 medially, 43 +/- 8 sagitally and 53 +/- 7 dorsolaterally. For the third tarsal bone mean +/- s.d. percentage area of dense subchondral bone in Group 1 was 32 +/- 10 medially, 39 +/- 11 sagitally and 44 +/- 8 dorsolaterally, whereas in Group 2 it was 28 +/- 8 medially, 37 +/- 6 sagitally and 41 +/- 9 dorsolaterally. There was no significant difference in percentage area of dense subchondral bone between the trained and untrained horses. An effect of treadmill training of Thoroughbred horses on modelling of the central and third tarsal bones could not be demonstrated. [less ▲]

Ante- and post-mortem MRI and detailed pathological examination were performed in a patient with a typical acute traumatic central cord syndrome (ATCCS) after a minor hyperextension injury to the neck who died 60 h later from heart failure. T2-weighted MRI showed a central hyperintense area at C3-4. There were disc protrusions, but no vertebral fracture or displacement. Histopathology disclosed severe axonal swelling and oedema in the dorsolateral fasciculi and, to a lesser degree, in the dorsal columns. In addition, an area of recent necrosis was found in the right anterior horn at C4-5. These findings suggest that the pathological hallmark of typical ATCCS is mechanical axonal disruption at a segmental level, but that more severe trauma may be accompanied by tissue destruction.

Aim of this paper is to review equine semen freezing procedures. Spermatozoa formation inside the testis, spermatozoa anatomy and physiology will be summarized, highlighting structures and/or functions injured during freezing/thawing process. Current quality standards will be defined for fresh and thawed semen with a special attention on total and progressive motilities and different definitions of these parameters in literature. New ways of semen analysis (as flow cytometry) will be discussed for their scientific and clinical implications. Freezing procedures will and new freezing procedures will be discussed. Future developments and progress in freezing methods will be exposed, as prediction of post-thaw semen quality on fresh semen basis, improvement of freezing extenders and prevention of reactive oxygen species effects.

This article examines the impact that national economic policies adopted during Indira Gandhi's final term in office (1980–84) had on four “national” social groups, namely the big industrialists, the middle class, the rich peasantry, and the poor. The study argues that the Congress (I) chose the former two as its major allies, while the rich peasantry and the poor were relegated to a secondary position. In the process, the focus of India's strategy of development shifted from the agrarian to the industrial sector, and from the rural to the urban world. [less ▲]

For several years, mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) have been evaluated in vivo and in vitro for their immunomodulatory, anti-inflammatory, anti- ischemia-reperfusion injury and “tissue repair” properties. These characteristics could make them interesting in various clinical applications, and particularly in organ transplantation. Taking advantage of our centre expertise and experience concerning MSC use in graft-versus-host disease after bone marrow transplantation and using already functioning GMP-compliant laboratory able to produce clinical-grade MSC, we initiated in 2011 a first trial exploring safety and tolerability of third party MSC infusions after kidney or liver transplantation in a prospective phase I-II study. In this study, after successful transplantation, 10 liver and 10 kidney transplant recipients under standard immunosuppressive treatment (tacrolimus, mycophenolate, steroids) receive an intravenous infusion of 1.5 - 3x106/kg of third-party MSC, on post-operative day 3+/-2. These patients are prospectively compared to the same number of liver and kidney transplant recipients who meet inclusion criteria but do not receive MSC infusion. Safety is assessed by recording side effects, including opportunistic infections and cancers. Immunosuppressive potential is evaluated by rejection episode rates, graft/patient survivals, immunohistology of 3-month (kidney) and 6-month (liver) graft biopsies, and in vitro evaluation of recipient immunity profile. In a second step, reduction (kidney) and progressive weaning (liver) of immunosuppression is attempted in recipients who received MSC. Inclusion of liver patients is now complete, and to date 3 kidney patients received MSC. Primary results will be presented, and complete 6-month liver results are expected for the end of 2014. The next step will be to assert the immunosuppressive potential of MSC after organ transplantation, and the opportunity to develop larger randomised, controlled, phase III trials. [less ▲]
