In recent years an increasing interest in attributional style in both normal and pathological populations has developed. In that context, the Internal, Personal and Situational Attributions Questionnaire (IPSAQ) was constructed. We investigated the psychometric properties of a French translation of the IPSAQ in a normal population.The results offer evidence that the present french translation has similarly adequate psychometric porperties as the original english version [less ▲]

In this paper, an integrated modelling methodology for the assessment of population exposure to air pollution, involving all compartments of the DPSIR-concept, is illustrated by an application in The Netherlands. The application demonstrates the advantages of an activity-based approach by presenting three kinds of applications: the calculation of vehicle emissions, the simulation of pollutant concentration patterns and the assessment of the population exposure to air population. Understanding exposure variations among activities and subpopulations can be very useful for scientific and policy purposes: it can provide information on locations or population groups most at risk, or can indicate where and when the largest exposure values occur.

During evolution, from ancestor thymoids scattered in gill baskets of the lamprey, the first unique thymus appeared in jawed cartilaginous fishes around 450-500 millions years ago, concomitantly or shortly after the emergence of recombinase-dependent adaptive immunity. The major biological function of the thymus is to generate a diverse repertoire of T-cell receptors that are self-tolerant. The thymus achieves this role by using two complementary and intimately associated mechanisms: 1) Apoptotic deletion of T-cell clones bearing a TCR with high affinity for self-antigens presented by MHC proteins on thymic epithelial cells (TECs) and dendritic cells (DCs); and 2) Generation of self-antigen specific natural regulatory T (nTreg) cells. Moreover, the escape from thymic central self-tolerance plays a primary role in the development of autoimmune diseases that are a significant burden for the quality of life and health care cost. Our new knowledge in thymus physiology and physiopathology is currently translated into innovative therapeutic strategies against these devastating chronic diseases. [less ▲]

Slightly after the emergence some 400 millions years ago of the first signs of adaptive immune response, tolerogenic pathways developed in order to preserve the integrity of self from potential autoimmune toxicity. Amongst those tolerogenic pathways, the thymus occupies a central place both by deleting self-reactive T cells that are produced in the thymus during random recombination of gene segments encoding the variable parts of the T-cell receptor for antigen (TCR) (negative selection), and by generating self-antigen specific regulatory T cells (Tr). A repertoire of neuroendocrine-related genes are transcribed by thymic stromal cells — epithelial and ‘nurse’ cells (TEC/TNC), dendritic cells (DC) and macrophages (MF) — in such a way that a dominant protein precursor is expressed in the thymus environment. Oxytocin (OT) and neurokinin A (NKA) are the dominant thymic precursors for the neurohypophysial hormone and tachykinin families, respectively. With regard to the insulin gene family, all members are transcribed following a precise cell topography and hierarchy in the profile of gene expression: IGF2 (TEC/TNC) > IGF1 (MF) >> INS (medullary TEC and/or DC). This hierarchy implies that IGF-2 is more tolerated than IGF-1, and much more than Insulin (Ins). The low level of INS transcription in the thymus also explains why Ins displays immunogenic properties, as well as the significant prevalence (±40%) of anti-Ins autoantibodies in the general population. Ins administration failed in providing tolerance or protection toward islet ß cells in type 1 diabetes (T1D). In contrast, the presentation of IGF-2 B11-25, the homologous sequence of Ins B9-23, to peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) isolated from DQ8+ T1D adolescents significantly increases IL-10 secretion and IL10 expression. Given the potent regulatory/suppressive properties of IL-10 on the autoimmune response toward islet ß cells, these data support that IGF-2 derived sequences constitute a strong basis for the development of an antigen-specific driven tolerogenic approach for T1D prevention and/or cure.
