Although often clinically silent, pancreatic cellular injury (PCI) is relatively frequent after cardiac surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass; and its etiology and time course are largely unknown. We defined PCI as the simultaneous presence of abnormal values of pancreatic isoamylase and immunoreactive trypsin (IRT). The frequency and time evolution of PCI were assessed in this condition using assays for specific exocrine pancreatic enzymes. Correlations with inflammatory markers were searched for preoperative risk factors. One hundred ninety-three patients submitted to cardiac surgery were enrolled prospectively. Blood IRT, amylase, pancreatic isoamylase, lipase, and markers of inflammation (alpha1-protease inhibitor, alpha2-macroglobulin, myeloperoxidase) were measured preoperatively and postoperatively until day 8. The postoperative increase in plasma levels of pancreatic enzymes and urinary IRT was biphasic in all patients: early after surgery and later (from day 4 to 8 after surgery). One hundred thirty-three patients (69%) experienced PCI, with mean IRT, isoamylase, and alpha1-protease inhibitor values higher for each sample than that in patients without PCI. By multiple regression analysis, we found preoperative values of plasma IRT >or=40 ng/mL, amylase >or=42 IU/mL, and pancreatic isoamylase >or=20 IU/L associated with a higher incidence of postsurgery PCI (P < 0.005). In the PCI patients, a significant correlation was found between the 4 pancreatic enzymes and urinary IRT, total calcium, myeloperoxidase, alpha1-protease inhibitor, and alpha2-macroglobulin. These data support a high prevalence of postoperative PCI after cardiac surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass, typically biphasic and clinically silent, especially when pancreatic enzymes were elevated preoperatively.

A number of homeodomain proteins have been shown to regulate cellular development by stimulating the transcription of specific target genes. In contrast to their distinct activities in vivo, however, most homeodomain proteins bind indiscriminately to potential target sites in vitro, suggesting the involvement of cofactors which specify target site selection. One such cofactor, termed extradenticle, has been shown to influence segmental morphogenesis in Drosophila melanogaster by binding cooperatively with certain homeodomain proteins to target regulatory elements. Here we demonstrate that STF-1, an orphan homeodomain protein required for pancreatic development in mammals, binds cooperatively to DNA with Pbx, the mammalian homolog of extradenticle. Cooperative binding with Pbx requires a pentapeptide motif (FPWMK) which is well conserved among a large subset of homeodomain proteins. The FPMWK motif is not sufficient to confer Pbx cooperativity on other homeodomain proteins, however; the N-terminal arm of the STF-1 homeodomain is also essential. As cooperative binding with Pbx occurs on only a subset of potential STF-1 target sites, our results suggest that Pbx may specify target gene selection in the developing pancreas by forming heterodimeric complexes with STF-1.

For 30 years, many haemorrhagic syndromes were observed in cattle. The recent observation in Europe of a new entity hemorrhagic highlights a consistent set of clinical cases in calves of all breeds under 30 days of age, with pancytopenic haemorrhagic purpura. Calves are vironegative for BVD and BTV, most are seropositive for both viruses antibodies. No specific etiology has been highlighted, but it seems that the syndrome is linked to the ingestion of colostrum immunized against cells of the calf. The syndrome is sporadic, with a prevalence ranging between 1:10,000 and 1:100,000 cattle under one year of age, causing a lethality of 99%. The origin of the pancytopenia is a medullar aplasia.

Standard toxicological assays using the zebrafish model system evaluate lethality and teratogenicity upon exposure during the first two days after fertilization. We tested the biological effects of several widely used drugs on zebrafish by acute treatment for 24hours starting at late embryonic stages, between 48 and 72hours post-fertilization. For 4 out of 6 compounds, we observed a higher sensitivity of late stage zebrafish embryos for general toxicity (lethality) compared to younger embryos. Morphological defects such as edema, body curvature, delayed growth, decreased heart rate and locomotion were observed for each of the compounds tested, often at sublethal concentrations. Gene expression studies on a set of four selected genes revealed a specific regulatory pattern for the different compounds tested. Our results allow us to compare various toxicological endpoints and may contribute to the design of a rational high throughput approach using the zebrafish model. [less ▲]

Targeted therapies are focused on one or a few molecules particularly involved in specific diseases. Some inflammatory dermatoses and cutaneous neoplasia potentially benefit from these approaches. Nine monoclonal antibodies of interest in dermatology are presented according to the disorders where they have proven their efficacy. Biotherapies extend beyond monoclonal antibodies. A given effect, such as TNF-alpha antagonism, is indeed obtained by distinct drug classes. The interindividual differences in the therapeutic responses remain unpredictable, and there is no criteria of selection of patients who could benefit the most from these targeted medications.

The experience of gardens is often analyzed in function of the views the garden affords. The actual walk leading to the views is treated as secondary. Yet the views cannot be experienced without the walk. The paper presents the paradigm of “panorama and labyrinth” to offer an analysis of both aspects of the experience of a garden. [less ▲]
