The South Carpathians, which were thrust to the Moesian platform in the Alpine orogeny (Late Cretaceous to Tertiary), include the Danubian nappe system. The Danubian pre-Alpine basement comprises two Variscan nappes, each one made up of partially retrogressed amphibolite facies rocks intruded by granitoids and capped by an Ordovician-Devonian volcano-sedimentary cover. No lithological correlation can be established between the pre-Ordovician basements of these two units. The metamorphic basement from the first Variscan nappe, the Drãgºan Group, is composed of banded amphibolites with some augen and aluminous gneisses intruded by granodioritic to tonalitic plutons. The banded structure of the amphibolites, together with their geochemistry, suggests a volcano-sedimentary sequence. Zircon U-Pb data on an intercalated augen gneiss have given an age of 777 ± 3 Ma for the emplacement of the protolith of this gneiss. Nd model ages (TDM) for the amphibolites range from 717 Ma to 817 Ma. At 777 Ma, Nd values cluster is at +8.3 to +9.8 and Sr initial ratios range between 0.7007 and 0.7023, indicating an oceanic origin without continental crust contamination. Major and trace elements from the Drãgºan amphibolites consistently display an island arc signature, with three differentiation trends evolving from an early tholeiitic trend to a more differentiated low-K calc-alkaline one. The Drãgºan terrane is similar to the Early Pan-African juvenile terranes of the Sahara. The basement of the second Variscan nappe, the Lainici-Pãiuº Group, is made up of metasedimentary rocks (mainly quartzites, marbles and graphitic mica gneisses) cut by early leucogranitic dykes, medium-K calc-alkaline and alkali-calcic (mainly granitic) plutons, and late medium-K porphyry diorite dykes. This magmatism can be bracketed between 588 Ma and 567 Ma (U-Pb zircon ages). The best preserved pluton (Tismana, 567 Ma old), displays a composite alkali-calcic (very high-K calc-alkaline) magmatic sequence, ranging from gabbro-diorite to monzogranite, including an ultramafic pod. Ages and geochemical signatures resemble the Saharan Late Pan-African granitoids. The existence of Late Precambrian partly juvenile terrains is thus confirmed within the basement of South Carpathians, which renders then a segment of the European Alpine belt that can be successfully compared to the Pan-African Trans-Saharan belt.

Q fever is a zoonotic infection caused by Coxiella burnetii that is endemic worldwide. Domestic ruminants are a source of infection for humans. Given the suggestion that the bacterium recrudesces during pregnancy in cattle, this study was designed to determine whether C. burnetii infection affects hormonal patterns, such as progesterone, cortisol, pregnancy associated glycoproteins (PAG), and prolactin during gestation in lactating cows. Possible interactions with Neospora caninum were also explored. The study was performed on 58 gestating non-aborting cows. Blood samples for hormone determinations were collected on Days 40, 90, 120, 150, 180, and 210 of gestation. For antibody determinations, blood was collected at day 40 postinsemination and postpartum. By GLM repeated measures analysis of variance, we established the effects of production and reproductive variables as well as Coxiella and Neospora seropositivity related to changes on cortisol, PAG, progesterone, and prolactin levels. Coxiella antibody levels were significantly related to cortisol, PAG, and plasma progesterone concentrations, whereas Neospora seropositivity was linked to plasma progesterone concentrations. The interaction between Coxiella and Neospora seropositivity was correlated with cortisol and plasma progesterone levels, whereas the interaction seropositivity against C. burnetii-plasma cortisol concentration was related to plasma PAG levels. Finally, an effect of lactation number only was observed on plasma prolactin. Our findings suggest that both the N. caninum and C. burnetii infection or the presence of both modify endocrine patterns throughout gestation. Cows seropositive to both, Neospora and Coxiella, showed higher plasma progesterone levels than the remaining animals examined. Seropositivity to C. burnetii was associated with placental damage and diminishing PAG levels throughout the second half of gestation, along with increased plasma cortisol levels on Day 180 of gestation.

Current theories on the evolution of paedomorphosis suppose that several ontogenetic pathways have appeared according to different selective pressures. The aim of this study was to find out whether two distinct processes can lead to paedomorphosis in the Alpine newt, Triturus alpestris. In this respect, we compared age structures of paedomorphic and metamorphic individuals in two newt populations where the two forms lived syntopically. Whereas paedomorphosis resulted in a slower rate of somatic development in one population, it resulted in an acceleration of sexual maturation in the other population. These processes correspond to neoteny and progenesis, respectively. These results suggest that phenotypic plasticity can result from contrasted ontogenetic pathways between two populations of the same species. They give support to models that consider gonadic development as the target of selection under different environmental pressures. [less ▲]

Diabetic nephropathy is a constantly increasing pathology in western countries. The trend is more pronounced in type 2 diabetic patients than in type 1 diabetic patients. Among individuals with type 2 diabetes, kidney disease is often multifactorial. This paper reviews recent developments in the pathophysiology, epidemiology and treatment of diabetic nephropathy.

L'Entre-Sambre-et-Meuse a été le siège d'une épidémie de néphropathie épidémique à Hantavirus (NE) en 199293. Cinq cas ont été rencontrés au CHU de Liège en moins d'un an. Le virus responsable de cette affection appartient à la famille dès Hantavirus dont il existe huit sérotypes aux caractéristiques propres en terme de vecteur (rongeurs), de distribution géographique et de pathogénicité. Les pathologies induites chez l'homme vont de la néphropathie épidémique à Hantavirus - d'évolution le plus souvent bénigne- au syndrome pulmonaire à Hantavirus (SPH) - fréquemment mortel - en passant par la fièvre hémorragique avec syndrome rénal (FHSR) de sévérité intermédiaire. Dans nos contrées, on rencontre le sérotype Puumala dont le vecteur est le campagnol roussâtre. L'homme s'infecte par inhalation de particules contaminées et développe dans un pourcentage non précisé des cas, après une période d'incubation de 1 à 3 semaines, un tableau clinique de néphropathie épidémique à Hantavirus. Celui-ci se caractérise par l'apparition brutale d'une fièvre, de myalgies diffuses, de douleurs abdominales et/ou lombaires et de céphalées. Apparaissent ensuite à des degrés divers: nausées et vomissements, oligurie, myopie aiguë, toux,diathèse hémorragique, diarrhée... Biologiquement, on observe l'association d'une insuffisance rénale aiguë et d'une thrombopénie. L'évolution est spontanément favorable dans les deux à trois semaines. Le diagnostic suggéré par la clinique sera confirmé par la sérologie. La physiopathologie de l'insuffisance rénale et de la thrombopénie fait intervenir des interactions complexes entre l'hôte et le virus. Il n'existe pas de thérapeutique spécifique pour la néphropathie épidémique à Hantavirus. Les formes plus sévères (SPH et FHSR) peuvent bénéficierd'un traitement par Ribavirineen iv. [less ▲]

We report the case of an acute renal failure due to an acute interstitial nephropathy (ATIN) induced by non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID). Even though this pathology is a rare cause of acute renal failure, it still requires special attention in view of the fact that it induces a high risk of acute morbidity but it also can evolve into chronic renal failure. Its differential diagnosis with other causes of acute renal failure becomes essential because of the different therapeutic care. In this article, we are going to briefly sum up the reasoning to adopt in order to diagnose an acute renal failure. [less ▲]
