Puberty is unique in the sense that its onset shows an extraordinary individual variability of about 5 years, the basis of which being still elusive despite research efforts to understand the reason why. Continuing changes in environmental influences and interaction with genetic determinants are suggested by the still evolving pattern of the pubertal process both clinically and mechanistically. For instance, secular trends towards earlier breast development have been observed during the two past decades in some countries, resulting in possible skewing of the age distribution of that pubertal sign with less obvious changes in menarcheal age. Conceptually, puberty and subsequent reproduction appear now to be influenced by conditions not only at the time when they occur, but also during fetal and perinatal life. In addition, these influences can be apparently opposing since early maturation follows fetal malnourishment and postnatal overfeeding. In this review, the semiology and pathophysiology of puberty are discussed in a lifelong developmental perspective. [less ▲]

We investigated the mere exposure effect and the explicit memory in Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients and elderly control subjects, using unfamiliar faces. During the exposure phase, the subjects estimated the age of briefly flashed faces. The mere exposure effect was examined by presenting pairs of faces (old and new) and asking participants to select the face they liked. The participants were then presented with a forced-choice explicit recognition task. Controls subjects exhibited above-chance preference and recognition scores for old faces. The AD patients also showed the mere exposure effect but no explicit recognition. These results suggest that the processes involved in the mere exposure effect are preserved in AD patients despite their impaired explicit recognition. The results are discussed in terms of Seamon et al.'s (1995) proposal that processes involved in the mere exposure effect are equivalent to those subserving perceptual priming. These processes would depend on extrastriate areas which are relatively preserved in AD patients. [less ▲]

Objective: Measurements of the variability in heart rate are increasingly used as markers of cardiac autonomic activity. We sought to establish the development this variability in healthy young infants while sleeping. Patients: We carried out polygraphic studies with electrocardiographic recording in 587 healthy infants aged from 5 to 26 weeks. Methods: We determined several variables over a period of 400 minutes sleeping: mean RR interval, 5 time-domain (SDNN, SDNNi, SDANNi, RMSSD, and pNN50) and 5 frequency-domain indexes (spectral power over 3 regions of interest, total power and low-to-high frequency ratio). Frequency-domain indexes were also assessed separately for the periods of quiet sleep and those of rapid eye movement sleep. Results: Our data showed a significant correlation between the indexes of heart rate variability and the mean RR interval, the breathing rate, and the corrected age of the infants. We also demonstrated the importance of the maturation of the sleeping patterns. Conclusion: These data in a large cohort of healthy infants confirm a progressive maturation of the autonomic nervous system during sleep, and may be used to examine the influence of physiological and pathophysiological factors on autonomic control during polygraphic studies.

BACKGROUND: Availability of normative reference values for cardiac chamber dimensions, volumes, mass, and function is a prerequisite for the accurate application of echocardiography for both clinical and research purposes. However, due to the lack of consistency in current echocardiographic 'reference values', their use for clinical decision-making remains questionable. AIMS: The aim of the 'Normal Reference Ranges for Echocardiography Study (NORRE Study)' is to obtain a set of 'normal values' for cardiac chamber geometry and function in a large cohort of healthy Caucasian individuals aged over a wide range of ages (25-75 years) using both conventional and advanced echocardiographic techniques. METHODS: The NORRE Study is a large prospective, observational multicentre study in which transthoracic echocardiographic studies will be acquired in 22 laboratories accredited by the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging and in one laboratory in the USA accredited by ICAEL. The final sample size has been estimated in 1100 normal subjects in whom M-mode, 2D, and 3D imaging, colour Doppler, pulsed-wave Doppler, pulsed-wave tissue Doppler, and colour tissue Doppler imaging data will be obtained. All studies will be sent to a central echocardiographic core laboratory for quantitative analysis. Multiple studies will be performed for reproducibility analysis. CONCLUSION: After completion of the NORRE Study, uniform reference limits according to age, gender, and anthropometric parameters will be available to standardize the quantitative interpretation of echocardiography.

In nephrology, chronic kidney disease is defined by both proteinuria and measurement of glomerular filtration rate (GFR). This article focuses on GFR and different ways to define its normal reference values. In this context, we compare two perspectives: first the reference values defined by measuring GFR in normal individuals (the 'classical way') and secondly a fixed cut-off value at 60 mL/min/1.73 m(2) according to the associated mortality risk (the 'prognostic way'). Following the classical way, we can assert that normal GFR values are largely over 60 mL/min/1.73 m(2) in healthy subjects, at least before the age of 70 years. However, we know that GFR physiologically decreases with age, and in adults older than 70 years, values below 60 mL/min/1.73 m(2) could be considered normal. Following the 'prognostic way', the fixed cut-off of 60 mL/min/1.73 m(2) has been retained in the K-DIGO guidelines. However, we challenge this concept and the fact that the variable 'age' is poorly taken into account in these data. There is an obvious discrepancy between the reference values defined either by the 'classical way' or by the 'prognostic way' which we think could be largely reduced, if age was better taken into consideration in these definitions.

Rhophilin 2 is a Rho GTPase binding protein initially isolated by differential screening of a chronically thyrotropin (TSH)-stimulated dog thyroid cDNA library. In thyroid cell culture, expression of rhophilin 2 mRNA and protein is enhanced following TSH stimulation of the cyclic AMP (cAMP) transduction cascade. Yeast two-hybrid screening and coimmunoprecipitation have revealed that the GTP-bound form of RhoB and components of the cytoskeleton are protein partners of rhophilin 2. These results led us to suggest that rhophilin 2 could play an important role downstream of RhoB in the control of endocytosis during the thyroid secretory process which follows stimulation of the TSH/cAMP pathway. To validate this hypothesis, we generated rhophilin 2-deficient mice and analyzed their thyroid structure and function. Mice lacking rhophilin 2 develop normally, have normal life spans, and are fertile. They have no visible goiter and no obvious clinical signs of hyper- or hypothyroidism. The morphology of thyroid cells and follicles in these mice were normal, as were the different biological tests performed to investigate thyroid function. Our results indicate that rhophilin 2 does not play an essential role in thyroid physiology [less ▲]

Celle-ci semble avoir émergé du croisement de trois champs d'action, à un moment bien particulier de leur évolution: le champ des politiques environnementales publiques, le champ de la normalisation technique et le champ des sciences de gestion. Cette mise en perspective spocio-historique permet de dénaturaliser un dispositif alors même que sa rapide diffusion le rend de plus en plus indiscutable, et de comprendre comment la norme ISO 14001 organise les relations entre ces trois champs d'action distincts.

This paper revisits the performance of funds of hedge funds after the crisis using normalized risk-adjusted performance measures based on multi-factor models. First, we develop performance measures able to capture the variety of systematic risk sources. Second, we deal with the impact of smoothing on the risk return properties of FoHF using an adjustment technic for illiquidity. Third, we implement unbiased estimators to correct for the econometric bias induced by errors-in-variables (EIV) in asset pricing models. With these different adjustments, we analyze the persistence and stability of performance measures before and after the crisis for a data base of funds of hedge funds. Our results clearly show that the normalized risk-adjusted performance measures corrected for smoothing effect and EIV outperform the alternatives measures before and after the crisis. [less ▲]
