A 20-year-old man with aplastic anemia developed myasthenia gravis (MG) 7 months after bone marrow transplantation (BMT) from an HLA one locus-mismatched sister. Proximal muscle weakness (predominant in the lower limbs) and dysphagia occurred without any other sign of graft-versus-host disease (GVHD), 1 month after cessation of immunosuppression with cyclosporine. The diagnosis of MG was based on clinical symptoms and on neurophysiologic investigations showing a significant increase of the Jitter in single-fiber electromyography and a significant decremental response during repetitive stimulation at slow rates, but antibodies against the acetylcholine receptor (AchRab) were negative. All clinical and neurophysiological signs normalized within 1 month of treatment with low-dose prednisolone and pyridostigmine, and the patient is perfectly well 1 year after cessation of all therapy. All cases of BMT-associated MG previously published are reviewed in comparison with ours. The originality of this new observation is that this case is the only one not associated with chronic GVHD and negative for AchRab. Alternatively, MG may have been the sole manifestation of chronic GVHD in this patient. [less ▲]

Les mycétomes sont des infections bactériennes ou mycotiques. Ils sont le plus souvent rapportés dans les pays tropicaux et subtropicaux, mais ils peuvent se rencontrer dans nos régions. Nous en rapportons cinq cas pour discuter une actualisation des moyens de diagnostic et les approches thérapeutiques. Ces affections sont caractérisées cliniquement par la présence de fistules et d'écoulements purulents contenant des grains visibles à l'oeil nu. Le diagnostic différentiel est l'actinomycose.

Recent studies have suggested that mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) may offer advantages over intravenous cyclophosphamide (IVC) for the treatment of lupus nephritis, but these therapies have not been compared in an international randomized, controlled trial. Here, we report the comparison of MMF and IVC as induction treatment for active lupus nephritis in a multinational, two-phase (induction and maintenance) study. We randomly assigned 370 patients with classes III through V lupus nephritis to open-label MMF (target dosage 3 g/d) or IVC (0.5 to 1.0 g/m(2) in monthly pulses) in a 24-wk induction study. Both groups received prednisone, tapered from a maximum starting dosage of 60 mg/d. The primary end point was a prespecified decrease in urine protein/creatinine ratio and stabilization or improvement in serum creatinine. Secondary end points included complete renal remission, systemic disease activity and damage, and safety. Overall, we did not detect a significantly different response rate between the two groups: 104 (56.2%) of 185 patients responded to MMF compared with 98 (53.0%) of 185 to IVC. Secondary end points were also similar between treatment groups. There were nine deaths in the MMF group and five in the IVC group. We did not detect significant differences between the MMF and IVC groups with regard to rates of adverse events, serious adverse events, or infections. Although most patients in both treatment groups experienced clinical improvement, the study did not meet its primary objective of showing that MMF was superior to IVC as induction treatment for lupus nephritis.

Mycoplasmas frequently infect cattle. Amongst them, M. Bovis is the most pathogenic species in countries free from contagious bovine pleuropneumonia because it is responsible for bronchopneumonia, arthritis and mastitis, and is thus associated with strong economic losses. Several studies have shown the frequency of M. bovis in Europe and the spread of antibiotic-resistant strains. Considering the absence of vaccine in Europe, it is essential to understand this bacteria in order to control the infection in cattle. In this context, this paper aims at summarizing the current knowledge about M. bovis. [less ▲]

Mycoplasmas frequently infect cattle, causing especially respiratory diseases. Mycoplasma bovis is the most important pathogenic species in countries free of bovine contagious pleuropneumonia. This species was frequently isolated in Belgium from cattle with respiratory disease. Furthermore, associations were often observed with pasteurellas and bovine respiratory syncytial virus. Of these M. bovis isolates, many were resistant to several antimicrobial agents which are used in cattle practice, except to fluoroquinolones. Inasmuch the high frequency of M. bovis isolation and antibiotic resistances, it is very important to understand the pathogenicity of this bacteria in order to optimize prophylactic tools. Therefore, the study of the cytadherence of M. bovis is essential since it represents the first step of the bacterial infection. According to our experimental results, PG45 is not representative of field isolates because of its low adherence rates to various cell lines. This could be explained by the high number of subcultures of this pathogenic strain underwent since its first isolation, which sharply contrasts with other isolates. M. bovis adheres specifically to bovine bronchial epithelial cells in primary culture. Proteins such as variable surface proteins C and F are involved in this step as observed by decreased adherence rates after trypsinization of mycoplasma cells or addition of monoclonal antibodies.

Three new insertion elements, IS Mbov1, ISMbov2 and ISMbov3, which are closely related to ISMag1 (Mycoplasma agalactiae), ISMmy1 and IS1634 (both Mycoplasma in mycoides subsp. in mycoides SC), respectively, have been discovered in Mycoplasma bovis, an important pathogen of cattle. Southern blotting showed that the genome of M. bovis harbours 6-12 copies of ISMbov1, 11-15 copies of ISMbov2 and 4-10 copies of ISMbov3, depending on the strain. A fourth insertion element, the IS30-like element, is present in 4-8 copies. This high number of IS elements in AI bovis, which represent a substantial part of its genome, and their relatedness with IS elements of both M. agalactiae and M. mycoides subsp. mycoides SC suggest the occurrence of two evolutionary events: (i) a divergent evolution into ill. agalactiae and M. bovis upon infection of different hosts; (ii) a horizontal transfer of IS elements during co-infection with M. mycoides subsp. mycoides SC and Ad. bovis of a same bovine host.
