Dès le 1er novembre, six fois par semaine, notre région aura son vol Charleroi-Liège, soit une distance de 84 kilomètres en Boeing 737-400. Soit un record de lâcher de CO2 pour une si petite distance à l'heure du Protocole de Kyoto ! [headline] Sous le titre « Excellente nouvelle pour la communauté marocaine et les amateurs de soleil », la nouvelle a été annoncée haut et fort à la mi-septembre : « Au terme de négociations fructueuses avec les directions des aéroports de Charleroi Bruxelles Sud et Liège, la compagnie aérienne Jet4you a décidé, dès le 01 novembre 2006, de lancer trois vols hebdomadaires vers Casablanca à partir de 18 Euros tous frais compris ». Vous avez bien lu. Il en coûtera moins de faire Charleroi-Casablanca en avion que de faire Charleroi-Liège en train (première classe) pour les privilégiés qui bénéficieront de ce prix d'appel. Pourquoi donc comparer Casablanca et Liège ? Simplement car l'avion reliera bien Charleroi à Liège, puis Liège à la capitale économique du Maroc. En d'autres termes, six fois par semaine, notre région aura son vol Charleroi-Liège, soit une distance de 84 kilomètres. Un record de très courte distance, sinon mondial, au moins européen… Et si cela répond directement à une forte demande d'une clientèle sans cesse croissante, on peut se demander quel est le coût environnemental de la mise en place d'une telle liaison opérée par un Boeing 737-400.

Les champs cultivés, les prairies, les bocages, les bords de route, les friches industrielles... sont de plus en plus l'objet d'actions d'intérêt biologique. Cette nature ordinaire est hybride, c'est un mélange de nature sauvage et de nature domestique qui fait l'objet d'une politique de gestion négociée avec les citoyens.

Cutaneous cystic-like lesions do not always correspond to real epithelial cysts. Indeed, the histological examination may identify another benign tumour. But, in some instances, the surprise may be greater. We report three patients in whom lesions suggested clinically small cysts. However, they were malignant neoplasms corresponding to a malignant fibrous histiocytoma, an epithelioid angiosarcoma and a metastatic adenocarcinoma, respectively. [less ▲]

This study evaluates the usefulness of PET for the preoperative evaluation of brain gliomas and methods of quantification of PET results. METHODS: Fifty-four patients with brain gliomas were studied by PET with 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) (n = 45) and/or 11C-methionine (MET) (n = 41) before any treatment. Results of visual analysis, calculation of glucose consumption and five tumor-to-normal brain ratios for both tracers were correlated with two histologic grading systems and with follow-up. RESULTS: Visual analysis (for FDG) and tumor-to-mean cortical uptake (T/MCU) ratio proved to be the best tools for the evaluation of PET results. Methionine was proven to be better than FDG at delineating low-grade gliomas. Tumor-to-mean cortical uptake ratios for FDG and MET were clearly correlated (r = 0.78), leading to the equation T/MCU(FDG) = 0.4 x T/MCU(MET). We showed a good correlation between FDG PET and histologic grading. MET uptake could not differentiate between low-grade and anaplastic astrocytomas but was significantly increased in glioblastomas. Low-grade oligodendrogliomas exhibited high uptake of FDG and MET, probably depending more on oligodendroglial cellular differentiation than on proliferative potential. Uptake was decreased in anaplastic oligodendrogliomas, probably due to dedifferentiation. Care must be taken with peculiar histologic subgroups, i.e., juvenile pilocytic astrocytomas and oligodendrogliomas, because of a discrepancy between high PET metabolism and low proliferative potential (good prognosis). Both tracers proved useful for the prediction of survival prognosis. Methionine proved slightly superior to FDG for predicting the histologic grade and prognosis of gliomas, despite the impossibility of differentiation between Grades II and III astrocytomas with MET. This superiority of MET could be explained by patient sampling (low number of Grade III gliomas submitted to examination with both tracers). The combination of both tracers improved the overall results compared to each tracer alone. CONCLUSION: Both tracers are useful for the prediction of the histologic grade and prognosis. The apparent superiority of MET over FDG could be due to the small number of Grade III gliomas studied with both tracers. [less ▲]

Background and purpose We aim to report on local control in a phase II trial on preoperative hyperfractionated and accelerated radiotherapy schedule (HART) in locally advanced resectable rectal cancer (LARC). This fractionation schedule was designed to keep the overall treatment time (OTT) as short as possible. Patients and methods This is a prospective trial on patients with UICC stages II and III rectal cancer. The patients were submitted to a total dose of 41.6 Gy, delivered in 2.5 weeks at 1.6 Gy per fraction twice a day with a 6-h interfraction interval. Surgery was performed within 1 week after the end of irradiation. Adjuvant chemotherapy was delivered in a subset of patients. Results Two hundred and seventy nine patients were entered and 250 are fully assessable, with a median follow-up of 39 months. The 5-years actuarial local control (LC) rate is 91.7%. The overall survival (OS) is 59.6%. The freedom from disease relapse (FDR) is 71.5%. Downstaging was observed in 38% of the tumors. Conclusion The actuarial LC at 5 years is 91.7%, although we are dealing with stages II–III LARC, mainly located in the lower rectum (median distance=5 cm). The pattern of failure is dominated by distant metastases and treatment intensification will obviously require a systemic approach. [less ▲]

Purpose: Patients with locally advanced rectal carcinoma are at risk for both local recurrence and distant metastases. We demonstrated the efficacy of preoperative hyperfractionated accelerated radiotherapy (HART). In this Phase I trial, we aimed at introducing chemotherapy early in the treatment course with both intrinsic antitumor activity and a radiosensitizer effect. Methods and Materials: Twenty-eight patients (19 males; median age 63, range 28–75) with advanced rectal carcinoma (cT3: 24; cT4: 4; cN : 12; M1: 5) were enrolled, including 8 patients treated at the maximally tolerated dose. Escalating doses of CPT-11 (30–105 mg/m2/week) were given on Days 1, 8, and 15, and concomitant HART (41.6 Gy, 1.6 Gy bid 13 days) started on Day 8. Surgery was to be performed within 1 week after the end of radiochemotherapy. Results: Twenty-six patients completed all preoperative radiochemotherapy as scheduled; all patients underwent surgery. Dose-limiting toxicity was diarrhea Grade 3 occurring at dose level 6 (105 mg/m2). Hematotoxicity was mild, with only 1 patient experiencing Grade 3 neutropenia. Postoperative complications (30 days) occurred in 7 patients, with an anastomotic leak rate of 22%. Conclusions: The recommended Phase II dose of CPT-11 in this setting is 90 mg/m2/week. Further Phase II exploration at this dose is warranted. © 2003 Elsevier Inc. [less ▲]
