Despite improvement of techniques, semen of 20% of stallions remains unfreezable. Recent studies focused on impact of reactive oxygen species and oxidant enzymes on semen characteristics. Myeloperoxidase (MPO) is a pro-oxidant enzyme contained in and released by neutrophils during degranulation or after cell lysis. It is responsible for the formation of hypochlorous acid, a strong oxidant agent which could damage spermatozoa. The aim of this study was to determine the relation between MPO concentration and characteristics of frozen semen from stallions. Thirty five straws from different stallions were analyzed. Post-thawing spermatozoal concentration, progressive and total motility were determined by CASA. Freezability was determined according to post-thawing progressive motility (over or under 15%). Percent of alive spermatozoa and abnormal forms were determined after Eosin-Nigrosin and Diff-Quick® staining respectively. Post-thawing MPO concentration was measured by ELISA. Our study shows that frozen thawed semen contains large amounts of free MPO. We also observed that post-thawing MPO ELISA assay can be used as an indicator of equine semen freezability. High MPO concentration samples showed lower total and progressive motility. A higher proportion of abnormal head shape associated with acrosome reaction was observed in our late examinations of the high concentration MPO group. Our results show that MPO adversely affects total and progressive motility of equine semen. A negative correlation between normal motile forms and MPO concentration was also observed. The effect of MPO on dead or abnormal forms remains to be precised. [less ▲]

AIM: To test the hypothesis of an association between polymorphism in FCGR3A (the gene coding for FcgammaRIIIa, which is expressed on macrophages and natural killer cells, is involved in antibody-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity and has recently been associated with a positive response to rituximab, a recombinant immunoglobulin G1 antibody used in non-Hodgkin's lymphomas) and response to infliximab in Crohn's disease. METHODS: FCGR3A-158 polymorphism was determined using an allele-specific polymerase chain reaction assay in 200 Crohn's disease patients who had received infliximab for either refractory luminal (n = 142) or fistulizing (n = 58) Crohn's disease. Clinical and biological responses (according to C-reactive protein levels) were assessed in 200 and 145 patients, respectively. RESULTS: There were 82.9% clinical responders in V/V patients vs. 72.7% in V/F and F/F patients (N.S.). Globally, the decrease in C-reactive protein was significantly higher in V/V patients than in F carriers (P = 0.0078). A biological response was observed in 100% of V/V patients, compared with 69.8% of F carriers (P = 0.0002; relative risk, 1.43; 95% confidence interval, 1.27-1.61). In the sub-group of patients with elevated C-reactive protein before treatment, the multivariate analysis selected the use of immunosuppressive drugs and FCGR3A genotype as independent factors influencing the clinical response to infliximab (P = 0.003). CONCLUSION: Crohn's disease patients with FCGR3A-158 V/V genotype have a better biological and, possibly, clinical response to infliximab. [less ▲]

This prospective cohort study aimed at identifying player-related risk factors for injuries in youth football as determined by extensive preseasonal screening. All male U15-U19 players from a regional football school (season 2007-2008; n = 67) underwent preseason evaluations assessing physical fatigue, emotional stress and injury history (questionnaire), anthropometric variables, general joint laxity (Beighton score), lower limb coordination (functional hop tests), aerobic fitness (shuttle run test), strength of knee extensor and flexor muscles (isokinetic tests), static and dynamic balance (force plate tests), and explosive strength (jump tests on force plate). Football exposure and all football-related injuries (n = 163) were recorded during the entire subsequent season (44 weeks). Total injury incidence was 10.4 injuries/1000  h and was higher in competition than in training [relative risk = 3.3; CI(95%) (2.39; 4.54); P < 0.001]. Lower limb injuries were most frequent (87%). Acute contact injuries represented 37%, while intrinsic (noncontact and chronic) injuries amounted to 63%. Of all the variables tested, only physical fatigue was significantly associated with injury, as revealed by univariate and multivariate analyses. The same result was observed when considering only intrinsic injuries as outcome. A single preseason test session may be of limited interest in the framework of an injury prevention strategy.

Several studies explored the relationship between verbal short-term memory (STM) and numerical cognition, but with inconclusive findings. The present study re-explored this relationship, by adopting the critical distinction between STM for item information (the items to be retained) and STM for order information (the order of the items within a list). We hypothesized that especially STM for order should be related to the development of numerical abilities, given that recent studies suggest the intervention of common processes during the representation of order information in STM and numerical tasks. We investigated item and order STM abilities and numerical processing abilities in 72 children during their third year in kindergarten. We observed that order STM abilities, but not item STM abilities, correlated significantly with performance on numerical order judgment and calculation tasks. These associations remained after control of interindividual differences in verbal and non-verbal cognitive efficiency. Our results suggest a specific relationship between order STM processes and numerical cognition, opening new perspectives for our understanding of the STM determinants of numerical cognition development.

La soie est une matière utilisée par les Malgaches depuis bien avant la colonisation. Cette soie est fabriquée à partir de la collecte de cocons des papillons du genre Borocera spp., ver à soie sauvage. On connaît une dizaine d’espèces de vers à soie sauvages endémiques à Madagascar. Ces lépidoptères polyphages se nourrissent surtout des feuilles de Uapaca bojeri et d’autres plantes telles que Dodonea madagascariensis et Psidium guyava. Les critères morphologiques se révèlent insuffisant pour identifier cette diversité d’espèces de vers à soie, surtout au niveau des stades immatures. Afin de pallier à cette incapacité d’identifier les espèces, des méthodes de marqueurs moléculaires, en particulier la RAPD (Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA) et iSSR (inter Simple Sequence Repeat), ont été appliquées. En plus de l’identification des espèces, une étude de la diversité et de la distribution des vers à soie suite à la collecte dans plusieurs forêts éloignées de plusieurs de kilomètres les unes des autres (Arivonimamo, Ambatofinandrahana, Antananarivo). Cette étude a été menée dans le cadre de la conservation de ces espèces de vers à soie endémiques en milieu. Afin d’augmenter durablement les populations de vers à soie endémiques dans les forêts de Uapaca, il est important de déterminer les espèces en présence et les capacités de dispersion de ces dernières. Les techniques d’identification moléculaires développées permettront d’orienter les stratégies de gestion des populations de Borocera et des méthodes de gestion de l’écosystème, appropriables par les gestionnaires et les communautés locales des la forêt à Uapaca bojeri.
