Prolonged utilization of some antiretroviral drugs in patients infected by HIV can lead to the outbreak of a lipodystrophy syndrome. This syndrome is characterized by modification of fats corporal repartition, sometimes associated with metabolic disturbancies (dyslipemia and insulin resistance). Two antiretroviral classes are implicated in the pathophysiology of this syndrome, namely protease inhibitors (PIs) and nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs). The PIs rather influence the differentiation of adipose tissue with its secretion. They are more often associated with visceral adiposity, insulin resistance and dyslipemia. The mitochondrial toxicity of the NRTIs is more frequently responsible for adipose tissue loss at the periphery. Other factors in relation to the patient influence the severity of this syndrome. Several therapeutic options are to be considered both when taking care of the patients suffering from this syndrome and when new patients are to be treated. [less ▲]

Patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) relying predominantly on familiarity for recognition, research has suggested that they may be particularly susceptible to memory illusions driven by conceptual fluency. Using the Jacoby and Whitehouse [Jacoby, L.L., & Whitehouse, K. (1989). An illusion of memory: False recognition influenced by unconscious perception. Journal of Experimental Psychology: General, 118, 126-135] illusion paradigm, we extended these findings and found that AD patients were also sensitive to perceptually driven false recognition. However, AD patients were equally able to disregard perceptual fluency when there was a shift in the sensory modality of the study and test stages. Overall, these findings support the notion that patients with AD can be susceptible to fluency-based memory illusions but these patients can strategically control the fluency attribution following their metamemory expectation in exactly the same way as elderly adults and young adults.

Eighteen patients who survived an acute myocardial infarction were found to have a normal coronary arteriogram. Seven patients were younger than 35 years and six were female. The myocardial infarction was nontransmural in 11 cases. The mean follow-up was 21.6 months. Eleven patients developed residual chest pain at rest early after myocardial infarction. One, treated by beta-blockers, suffered a recurrent myocardial infarction. Eight became asymptomatic, and two improved under antispastic therapy. Another patient developed a severe form of variant angina three months after myocardial infarction; she died following plexectomy. Finally, two patients experienced rare episodes of angina at rest. The stress ECG was negative in all cases. Provocative test for spasm was positive in three out of nine patients. Diffuse narrowing associated with chest pain was demostrated in two patients at angiography. Thus, myocardial infarction and subsequent normal coronary angiogram are mainly found in young female patients, and infarction is often nontransmural. Clinical evidence of vasospastic phenomena and increased vasomotor tone are found in most patients. Whenever residual chest pain is controlled by antispastic therapy, the follow-up course seems benign. [less ▲]

INTRODUCTION: The patient's perspective is becoming increasingly important in clinical and policy decisions. In this study, we aimed to evaluate the preferences of patients with, or at risk of, osteoporosis for medication attributes, and to establish how patients trade between these attributes. METHODS: A discrete choice experiment survey was designed and patients were asked to choose between two hypothetical unlabelled drug treatments (and an opt-out option) that vary in five attributes: efficacy in reducing the risk of fracture, type of potential common side-effects, mode and frequency of administration and out-of-pocket costs. An efficient experimental design was used to construct the treatment option choice sets and a mixed logit panel data model was used to estimate patients' preferences and trade-offs between attributes. RESULTS: A total of 257 patients with, or at risk of, osteoporosis completed the experiment. As expected, patients preferred treatment with higher effectiveness and lower cost. They also preferred either an oral monthly tablet or 6-month subcutaneous injection above weekly oral tablets, 3-month subcutaneous, 3-month intravenous or yearly intravenous injections. Patients disliked being at risk of gastro-intestinal disorders more than being at risk of skin reactions and flu-like symptoms. There was significant variation in preferences across the sample for all attributes except subcutaneous injection. CONCLUSIONS: This study revealed that osteoporotic patients preferred 6-month subcutaneous injection and oral monthly tablet, and disliked gastro-intestinal disorders. Moreover, patients were willing to pay a personal contribution or to trade treatment efficacy for better levels of other attributes. Preferences for treatment attributes varied across patients and this highlights the importance of clinical decision-making taking individual preferences into account to improve osteoporosis care.

Numerous African art objects collected in the course of colonial or ethnological expeditions during the 20th century are partially or completely covered with a so-called ‘‘patina’’. These patinas have been formed during religious and ritual ceremonies, where different substances have been spread out at the surface of the objects. The anthropomorphic statuettes from the Dogon culture are well-known examples of this kind of practice. A better understanding of the chemical composition of these patinas could explain details of the ceremonial practices realized throughout the centuries. An important challenge is to extract unequivocal information about the original constituents of these patinas, and the techniques used for their application on ritual objects. The Dogon statuary can be divided into three periods. The oldest one, before 1350 A.D., is called the Tellem period, according to the name of the people who lived in this area before the arrival of the Dogon. The most recent, after 1650 A.D., is the Dogon period. These two periods are separated by an intermediary period, where the attribution to the Tellem or to the Dogon cultures is difficult. During our study, we have worked on the patina of 12 Dogon artifacts from these three different periods. In this paper, we present the results obtained for two representative objects, one of the Tellem period and one of the Dogon period. The aim is to access the chemical composition of the patinas and to see if they can be compared to ethnological reports, as is often done in the literature on ethnological studies. Chemical imaging techniques, based on the combination of microscopy and spectroscopy, are well suited to study both the composition and the spatial organization of heterogeneous complex mixtures of organic and inorganic matter. Time-of-flight secondary ion mass spectrometry (ToF-SIMS), followed by scanning electron microscopy with energy dispersive X-ray analysis (SEM-EDS), and synchrotron radiation-based Fourier transform infrared microscopy (SR-mFTIR) have been applied to non-destructive analyses of micro-samples of the patinas of several Dogon statuettes. A very careful preparation, using ultramicrotomy on embedded samples, allowed us to perform successively all these measurements on a single fragment. Comparison and superposition of the different chemical images lead us to identify minerals (clays, quartz and calcium carbonate), and different organic products (proteins, starch, lipids), as well as to map their spatial distribution. The patina of the most recent statuettes presents a stratigraphy which can be related to successive uses of the objects for ritual purposes, and the results are in agreement with the ethnological reports. For the Tellem objects, the significant quantity of minerals and the lack of stratigraphy suggest that the patina was deposited according to a different recipe. This difference suggests the existence of a diversity of rituals that are more extensive than that described by the ethnologists. [less ▲]

Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia type 1 (MEN 1) is an autosomal dominant syndrome characterized by neoplasia of the parathyroid glands, the endocrine pancreas and the anterior pituitary gland. Recently the identification on chromosome 11 (locus q13) of the gene responsible for MEN 1 has allowed direct genetic diagnosis of MEN 1-affected family members. To date almost 300 families have been described and genetically characterized. The genetic etiology of most pituitary tumours remains unknown. Pituitary adenomas can develop sporadically or as a part of multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1. In this review, the recently published data on the pathology of the MEN 1 syndrome will be summarized. The clinical, morphological and genetic aspects of sporadic and MEN 1-associated pituitary adenomas will be outlined. [less ▲]
