The incidence of malignant melanoma has increased over the past decades, particularly in Caucasian population. This disease presents defavourable prognosis in terms of survey, especially when detection occurs at the metastatic phase. Reliable analytical methods for biomarker determination are thus an interesting tool in pathology detection and follow-up. In this context, a method using SPE-LC-ESI-MS-MS for the determination of 5-S-cysteinyldopa (5-SCD) in human plasma was optimized. The presence of matrix effect was investigated in details while 5-SCD stability was studied according to FDA requirements for the validation of bioanalytical methods. Pre-study and in-study validations of the entire method were then successfully performed by applying the approach based on total measurement error and accuracy profiles over a concentration ranges from 1.6 to 200 ng/ml. Good results with respect to accuracy, trueness and precision were obtained. The maximum risk of observing future measurements falling outside the acceptance limits during routine analysis was also estimated. [less ▲]

In order to quantify oxytetracycline (OTC) in nasal secretions of healthy pigs after intramuscular injection of OTC at doses of 10, 20 and 40 mg/kg bodyweight, an original method based on ultra-high pressure liquid chromatography coupled to tandem mass spectrometry (UPLC-MS/MS) was developed and fully validated. Sample preparation consisted in protein precipitation preceded by the addition of a releasing protein reagent. Metacycline (MTC) was used as internal standard. Separation was carried out at 65 degrees C in the gradient elution mode on a short analytical column filled with Acquity BEH C(18) stationary phase. The mobile phase consisted in a mixture of water and acetonitrile containing 1 mM of oxalic acid and 0.1% (v/v) of formic acid. The triple quadrupole mass spectrometer operated in the positive electrospray ionization mode; OTC and MTC were detected using multiple reaction monitoring. The pre-study and in-study validation of this bioanalytical method was performed by applying a novel strategy based on total measurement error and accuracy profiles. The maximum risk of observing future measurements falling outside the acceptance limits during routine as well as the measurements uncertainty were also estimated. [less ▲]

Objective: To assess current habits for surgical hand preparation amongst veterinary surgical specialists and to compare data with current guidelines for hand asepsis techniques. Study design: Survey of veterinary surgical specialists Sample Population: Diplomates of the American (ACVS) and European Colleges of Veterinary Surgeons (ECVS). Methods: An internet based survey of hand preparation methods before surgical procedures was conducted of 1300 listed ACVS and ECVS Diplomates. Results: A 42.6% response rate was obtained. Approximately 80% of respondents use disinfecting soaps as a primary method for hand antisepsis. Of those, 81% use chlorhexidine based scrubs and 7% use a neutral soap followed by a hydroalcoholic solution. Conclusions: Contrary to current recommendations of the World Health Organization and scientific evidence supporting use of hydro-alcoholic rubs for presurgical hand preparation, veterinary surgical specialists still use surgical scrub solutions containing disinfecting soaps.

Mobilized peripheral blood has become the predominant stem cell source for allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation. Few studies have compared outcome of HLA-matched related and HLA-matched unrelated donor peripheral blood stem cell transplants. We conducted a retrospectivesingle-center analysis of 442 patients with hematologic malignancies who underwent peripheral blood stem cell transplantationfrom matched related or matched unrelated donorand we analyzed prognostic factors for long-term survival.To account for disease/status heterogeneity, patients were risk-stratified according to theDisease Risk Index.Five-year overall survival was similar aftertransplants with matched related and unrelated donor. Because donor age ≥60 years impacted outcome during model building, we further considered 3 groups of donors: matched unrelated donor (aged < 60 years by definition), matched related donor aged <60 yearsand matched related donoraged ≥60 years. In multivariate analysis, donor type/age groupand graft CD34+ and CD3+ cell doses significantly impactedlong-term survival. Transplants with matched unrelated donor and matched related donor<60years resulted in similar long-term survival while transplant with matched related donor≥60years was associated with higher risks for late mortality and treatment failure. Lower mortality risks were observed after transplant with CD34+ cell dose > 4.5 x 106/kgand CD3+ cell dose > 3 x 108/kg. The Disease Risk Index failed to predictsurvival. We builtan “Adapted Disease Risk Index” by modifying risks for myeloproliferative neoplasms and multiple myeloma, thatimproved stratification ability for progression-free survivalbut not for overall survival.

Abstract: Since the Treaty of London in 1839, pre-war planning theories in Belgium oscillated between two positions: on one hand secure and defend which border would be endangered, on the other hand constitute in Antwerp a powerful national sanctuary. This concentration of most of the available military means in Antwerp was far more appropriate in the event of a French invasion. But this perspective decreased after the Franco-Prussian war in 1870, while the possibility of a trespassing by the two belligerents became greater and greater. The fortifications of Namur and Liège were voted by the Chambers in 1887 as a deterrent to both France and Germany. Nevertheless, without totally putting aside the defence of the Belgian southwestern border, high-ranking officers seemed to fear more and more a violation of the eastern border. Due to the completion of fortifications on the Meuse in 1892, German columns were supposed to move forward south of the river, through the Belgian Ardennes. On the eve of the Great War, King Albert I would have preferred to concentrate the army on the Meuse but his Chief of Staff selected a central position in order to maintain and secure his line of communication with Antwerp. The lack of a determined and “standardized” doctrine at the highest level of the army led to a “mixed” or compromise plan adopted in a hurry during the first days of mobilization in August 1914.

Compared with present-day global plate tectonics, Archaean and Palaeoproterozoic plate tectonics may have involved faster moving, hotter plates that accumulated less sediment and contained a thinner section of lithospheric mantle. This scenario also fits with the complex geodynamic evolution of the Fennoscandian Shield from 2.06 to 1.78 Ga when rapid accretion of island arcs and several microcontinent-continent collisions in a complex array of orogens was manifested in short-lived but intense orogenies involving voluminous magmatism. With a few exceptions, all major ore deposits formed in specific tectonic settings between 2.06 and 1.78 Ga and thus a strong geodynamic control oil ore deposit formation is suggested. All orogenic gold deposits formed syn- to post-peak metamorphism and their timing reflects the orogenic younging of the shield towards the SW and west. Most orogenic gold deposits formed during periods of crustal shortening with peaks at 2.72 to 2.67, 1.90 to 1.86 and 1.85 to 1.79 Ga. The ca. 2.5 to 2.4 Ga Ni-Cu PGE deposits formed both as part of layered igneous complexes and associated with mafic volcanism, in basins formed during rifling of the Archaean craton at ca. 2.5 to 2.4 Ga. Svecokarelian ca. 1.89 to 1.88 Ga Ni-Cu deposits are related to mafic-ultramafic rocks intruded along linear belts at the accretionary margins of microcratons. All major VMS deposits in the Fennoscandian Shield formed between 1.97 and 1.88 Ga, in extensional settings, prior to basin inversion and accretion. The oldest "Cyprus-type" deposits were obducted onto the Archaean continent during the onset of convergence. The Pyhasalmi VMS deposits formed at 1.93 to 1.91 Ga in primitive, bimodal arc complexes during extension of the arc. In contrast, the Skellefte VMS deposits are 20 to 30 million years younger and formed in a strongly extensional intra-arc region that developed on continental or mature arc crust. Deposits in the Bergslagen-Uusimaa belt are similar in age to the Skellefte deposits and formed in a microcraton that collided with the Karelian craton at ca. 1.88 to 1.87 Ga. The Bergslagen-Uusimaa belt is interpreted as an intra-continental, or continental margin back-arc, extensional region developed on older continental crust. Iron oxide-copper-gold (IOCG) deposits are diverse in style. At least the oldest mineralizing stages, at ca. 1.88 Ga, are coeval with calc-alkaline to monzonitic magmatism and coeval and possibly cogenetic subaerial volcanism more akin to continental arcs or to magmatic arcs inboard of the active subduction zone. Younger mineralization of similar style took place when S-type magmatism occurred at ca. 1.80 to 1.77 Ga during cratonization distal to the active N-S-trending subduction zone in the west. Possibly, interaction of magmatic fluids with evaporitic sequences in older rift sequences was important for ore formation. Finally, the large volumes of anorthositic magmas that characterize the Sveconorwegian Orogeny formed a major concentration of Ti in the SW part of the Sveconorwegian orogenic belt under granulite facies conditions, about 40 million years after the last regional deformation of the Sveconorwegian Orogeny, between ca. 930 and 920 Ma.
