The pineal gland, melatonin, and the regulation of hormonal rhythms Dr. H Valdés-Socin. Head of clinic. Department of Endocrinology. CHU de Liège The pineal gland is known by Anatomists since the middle ages. Andrea Vesalius described it in the chap VII of his monumental book "De humani corporis fabrica (1555)". René Descartes had the intuition that the pineal gland is a "third eye" and that is how his illustrator Florent Schuyl represented it in figure 34 of Descartes book "De Homine" (1662). As for the artists, some of them illustrated from their paintings some craniotomies in which the surgeon performs the extraction of the stone of madness. Thus, "the extraction of the stone of madness" from Pieter Huys, is exposed in the Museum of the Périgord (1561). Jan Sanders showed the same subject in his painting "The surgeon" (1550) exhibited in the Museo Nacional del Prado, Madrid. During the 20th century the anatomy and the physiology of the pineal gland will be revisited: it appears so that the pinealocytes are in close relationship to the photoreceptors. In certain animal species (birds, reptiles) the pinealocytes are also photosensitive: their pineal gland is directly sensitive to light. In addition, in humans, the pinealoblastomes may occur related to the "trilateral retinoblastoma syndrome" caused by mutations in the RB1 gene (13q14.2) (Plowman & al Clin Oncol 2004). These patients present with retinoblastoma in both eyes but also in the pineal. This only strengthens the intuition of Descartes as the pineal as a "third eye". As for the genetic and hereditary aspect, we had the opportunity as well as other authors, to describe the family presentation of pineal lesions with hypersecretion of melatonin (Allouch & al 2002). With the greater availability of Radiology and brain scans, it was discovered with interest that the pineal gland is often calcified. This calcification can be observed since the second decade of life. It is not yet established if the pineal gland should be considered a"stone of madness " however it is a sort of “cerebral lithiasis”. Indeed, during this oral presentation, we will show some data linking the pineal gland and the light to seasonal depression. "Folly" induced by the long winter nights can be prevented from light therapy treatment. Severe head trauma is associated to Hypopituitarism up to 10-35% of cases, depending on the dynamic tests used to diagnose hypopituitarism (Valdés-Socin & al 2009, Valdés-Socin & al 2015). A current research topic is the study of disturbance of circadian hormonal cycles and secretion of melatonin. The secretion of melatonin occurs at night, and its synthesis is made in the pineal gland and then discharged to the general circulation. However, there is a quantitatively most important melatonin production at the level of the digestive tract. This melatonin would have essentially a paracrine effect. The administration of melatonin in humans results in variable pharmacokinetics due to its hepatic metabolism and its urinary excretion. Membrane melatonin MT1 and MT2 receptors use G proteins transduction. They are distributed mainly in the CNS at the level of the retina, hypothalamic nuclei and the pineal gland. They are also found in the periphery and in endocrine glands. A third melatonin receptor or MT3 is intracellular: this is the quinone reductase enzyme that has an important role in protection against oxidative stress (Lucchetti & al FASEB 2010). A current research topic is the role of a variant MT2 receptor (Variant rs 10830963) in diabetology. Patients harbouring this variant has been shown to have a a decrease in the early phase of insulin secretion(Langenberg & al Diabetologia 2009), and have a higher fasting morning glycemia, and consequently, an increased risk of developing a type 2 diabetes. These findings were demonstrated in a meta-analysis involving 170 000 patients (Mao & al PLOS one 2012). The same variant has been identified in patients at risk of developing glucose intolerance and gestational diabetes (al Diabetologia 2012, Liao, Walford & al PLO one 2012) Melatonin is synthesized in the pineal gland from the conversion of tryptophan to serotonin. Enzymes such as alkylamine N-acetyltransferase (NAT) and of acetylserotonin O-methyltransferase (ASMT) ensure the synthesis of melatonin from serotonin. Apart from melatonin which can be prescribed as such in Belgium, there are synthetic analogs of melatonin such as CIRCADIN. AGOMELATONINE is available in France (lab SERVIER). VALDOXAN is a structural analogue of melatonin developed as a sedative antidepressant daily, which must be taken at sunset. It is a MT1 and MT2 melatonin receptor agonist and antagonist of the serotonin 5HT2C receptors. We can also mention RAMELTEON (TAKEDA lab), which is registered as an hypnotic. Références B Claustrat.

A variety of chemical components can be used as warfare threats directly targeting humans. They can be classified according to their main biological effects as nerve agents, vesicants, lung damaging agents, cyanogen agents and incapacitants. Other chemical agents are water and food contaminants. Sill other less aggressive compounds are mainly used to control riots. Smokes, flame materials and herbicides belong to other classes of chemical agents of the warlike armamentum exhibiting a direct effect on man. [less ▲]

La gynécomastie secondaire au traitement par anti-androgènes, est une complication fréquente des traitements hormonaux utilisés pour les patients souffrant de cancer prostatique. Cette gynécomastie est le résultat d'un déséquilibre hormonal entre les oestrogènes et les androgènes. On peut raisonnablement estimer que l'incidence de cette gynécomastie va augmenter compte tenu de l'effet bénéfique de la manipulation hormonale sur le devenir des patients atteints d'un cancer de la prostate. La gynécomastie, souvent associée à la mastodynie, a un effet délétère sur la qualité de vie. Si la chirurgie est une option thérapeutique pour les formes installées et irréversible, caractérisée par une composante de hyalinisation et fibrose dominant le tableau histologique, la radiothérapie reste le traitement de choix pour les formes précoces, voire même à titre prophylactique dans les groupes de patients à haut risque. C'est un traitement simple et efficace, peu toxique et bénéfique en qualité de vie et ceci a été confirmé par des essais randomisés. L'approche médicamenteuse n'a pas encore démontré son efficacité ni son innocuité et de toute façon aucune substance médicamenteuse n'a été enregistrée pour cette indication. [less ▲]

Le Virus de la Varicelle et du zona (VZV) est un herpesvirus humain qui code pour 70 protéines parmi lesquelles 2 protéines kinases: ORF66p et ORF47p. La ser/thr kinase ORF47p, homologue de UL13 d’HSV, est conservée parmi tous les Herpesvirus et fait donc partie des “Conserved Herpesvirus encoded Protein Kinases” (CHPKs). La kinase ORF47p, n’est pas indispensable dans la plupart des cellules, mais elle est essentielle dans les cellules différenciées telles que la peau, les cellules T ou des cellules dendritiques. Elle a été montrée capable de s’autophosphoryler et de phosphoryler des protéines virales, en particulier ORF9p, IE62, IE63, et gE, régulant ainsi les différentes étapes du cycle infectieux. En outre, lors de l’infection par VZV, la protéine IRF3 (Interferon Responding Factor 3), facteur de transcription régulant de la réponse immunitaire innée antivirale apparaît phosphorylée de manière ORF47p-dépendante, empêchant ainsi la mise en place d’une réponse innée efficace. ORF47p apparaît donc comme une kinase capable de moduler à la fois des processus viraux et des processus cellulaires qu’il reste néanmoins à identifier et à caractériser. [less ▲]
