Les élections de 2006 en République démocratique du Congo marquaient la fin d'une étape dans le processus de reconstruction de l'Etat après les guerres qui ont marqué la région de l'Afrique des Grands Lacs depuis les années 1990. La dispersion des votes sur de nombreux partis peu structurés lors des élections législatives, provinciales et sénatoriales marque le paysage politique congolais. L'élection présidentielle a montré une opposition entre deux grands candidats, l'un, Joseph Kabila, mieux soutenu à l'Est et l'autre, Jean-Pierre Bemba, à l'Ouest du pays. [less ▲]

There are morphological and reproductive physiological differences between swamp buffalo (Bubalus carabanensis) and river buffalo (Bubalus bubalis). The development of fetus weight and fetus biometry was reported in river buffalo and other animals but not in swamp buffalo. The aim of this study was to describe the inherent variability in fetus related measurements during swamp buffalo pregnancy. The data is based on measurements of 267 fetuses and 5 new born claves from swamp buffalo. The results show that a significant linear correlation exists between estimated age of fetuses and parameters of fetus sizes. There were correlations between crown-rump length (CRL) and other fetal parameters, as well as between fetus weight and its parameters. In conclusion, our data indicated that the feasibility and value of fetal measures in swamp buffaloes being used for the evaluation of fetal development. [less ▲]

Although the structural organization of the mature Corti organ is generally well defined, little is known about its prenatal development. Here, we have examined by photonic and electron transmission microscopies the morphological changes occurring in the cochlear epithelium from the embryonic day 16 to 19 in rat. Moreover, we have used the periodic acid-thiocarbohydrazide-silver proteinate method to detect the glycogen particles on semithin and ultrathin sections of the cochlear duct. <br />At the embryonic day 16 (E16), whatever the region of the cochlear studied (base, medium, apex), the organ of Corti is not present. The cochlear epithelium appears as a pseudostratified epithelium formed formed by two distinct regions according to the presence or the absence of microvilli at the apical surface of cells. The region with the microvilli is on the modiolar side and the presence of microvilli is a characteristic of cells in the greater epithelial ridge (GER). In basal part of the cochlear duct, glycogen particles are visible on ultrathin sections in only one cell. On both sides of this cell, apical part of the epithelium shows microvilli. At E17, on semithin sections of basal and medium parts of cochlear duct, one cell visible on the whole height of the epithelium shows rich content in glycogen . At E18, in the majority of sections realized at the base and medium of the cochlear canal, the organ of Corti is relatively well recognizable. We distinguish principally the inner hair cells but also to a lesser extent the outer hair cells as well as the supporting cells (pillar, phalengeal and Deiters cells).We show that only the pillar cells have a rich content in glycogen. At E19, the organ of Corti is clearly recognizable in all the basal and medium parts of the cochlear duct. By contrast, it is yet differenciated in the apex. <br />These data seem to indicate that the Corti organ in rat develops from base to apex in the greater epithelial ridge starting by the pillar cells.

The cochlear epithelium appears as a pseudostratified epithelial tissue formed by two distinct regions according to the staining of the cells : a pale region on the striolar side of the cochlear canal and a darker region on the modiolar side. At E17, it appears in the basal and medium cells of the cochlear epithelium, at the transition between the pale and the dark one, a cell visible on the whole height of the epithelium. By electron microscopy, we also show that this cell has a rich content in glycogen, a characteristic reminiscent to pillar cells. These results suggest that the first differentiating cell in the cochlear epithelium could be a pillar cell. At E18, in the majority of sections realized at the base and medium of the cochlear canal, the organ of Corti is relatively well recognizable. We distinguish principally the inner hair cells but also to a lesser extent the outer hair cells as well as the supporting cells (pillar, phalengeal and Deiters cells).

OBJECTIVE: Abnormally invasive placenta (AIP) poses diagnostic and therapeutic challenges. We analyzed clinical cases with confirmed placenta increta or percreta. DESIGN: Retrospective case series. SETTING: Multicenter study. POPULATION: Pregnant women with AIP. METHODS: Chart review. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Prenatal detection rates, treatment choices, morbidity, mortality and short-term outcome. RESULTS: Sixty-six cases were analyzed. All women and all but three fetuses survived; 57/64 women (89%) had previous uterine surgery. In 26 women (39%) the diagnosis was not known before delivery (Group 1), in the remaining 40 (61%) diagnosis had been made between 14 and 37 weeks of gestation (Group 2). Placenta previa was present in 36 women (54%). In Groups 1 and 2, 50% (13/26) and 62% (25/40) of the women required hysterectomy, respectively. In Group 1 (unknown at the time of delivery) 69% (9/13) required (emergency) hysterectomy for severe hemorrhage in the immediate peripartum period compared with only 12% (3/25) in Group 2 (p = 0.0004). Mass transfusions were more frequently required in Group 1 (46%, 12/26 vs. 20%, 8/40; p = 0.025). In 18/40 women (45%) from Group 2 the placenta was intentionally left in situ; secondary hysterectomies and infections were equally frequent (18%) among these differently treated women. Overall, postpartum infections occurred in 11% and 20% of women in Groups 1 and 2, respectively. CONCLUSIONS: AIP was known before delivery in more than half of the cases. Unknown AIP led to significantly more emergency hysterectomies and mass transfusions during or immediately after delivery. Prenatal diagnosis of AIP reduces morbidity. Future studies should also address the selection criteria for cases appropriate for leaving the placenta in situ. [less ▲]

We report the prenatal diagnosis of Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome (4p-) in a 24-week-old fetus. Echographic features included cystic hygroma, a complex heart defect with right ventricular hypoplasia, and a large placental chorioangioma. We suggest that chorioangioma may be associated with chromosomal imbalance and that systematic careful morphologic examination of the fetus and karyotyping of any pregnancy in which large chorioangioma is detected is advisable. Jugular lymphatic obstruction sequence has not been reported so far in association with 4p-syndrome. [less ▲]

The role of thyroid hormone in the human fetus is uncertain; a significant amount of T4 is transferred from the maternal to the fetal circulation. A mother-infant pair was found to be heterozygotic for a point mutation in codon 271 of the gene encoding Pit-1, a pituitary-specific transcription factor regulating somatotrope, lactotrope, and thyrotrope function. At birth, serum T4 was undetectable in mother and infant. The newborn presented with a striking delay of respiratory, cardiovascular, neurological, and bone maturation. Despite replacement therapy since birth, neurological development of the infant is impaired. Fetomaternal Pit-1 deficiency resulted in unmitigated fetal hypothyroidism that unmasked thyroid hormone as a potent endogenous drive of fetal maturation and revealed placental transfer of maternal T4 as a rescue mechanism for infants with congenital hypothyroidism, preventing fetal and neonatal symptoms of thyroid deficiency and safeguarding developmental potential.

OBJECTIVE: The feasibility of large-scale Down syndrome maternal screening with dried blood samples and nonradioactive methods was examined. STUDY DESIGN: A prospective observation study was performed on a nonselected population of 11,241 pregnant women sampled between January 1991 and September 1992, between 14 and 24 weeks' gestation (ultrasonographic scanning available for 91.6%), through a multicenter collaborative network. Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays for alpha-fetoprotein, human chorionic gonadotropin, and free estriol were performed on dried blood samples. Risk determination was made with an in-house software implementing the multivariate gaussian log likelihood method. RESULTS: A total of 10,450 samples were eligible for the study. Mean age at term was 27.9 years. A total of 6.84% of the patients were > or = 35 years old with a prior risk of trisomy 21 > 1:350. The general positive rate of our sample was 8.15%. After calculation 31.7% with prior risk > 1:350 were still in the high-risk group; 6.36% of the low-risk group were found to be at high risk for Down syndrome. Fifteen trisomic pregnancies were observed, of which 11 had a calculated risk higher than the selected cutoff value (1:350). The overall detection rate was 73%, specificity was 92%, and positive predictive power was 1.2%. CONCLUSION: Our pilot study has shown performances within the range of conventional serum screening programs. Dried blood assays are a handy alternative to serum assays. Blot paper cards represent a simple method of sampling, well fitted for large population screening. Combined with nonradioactive methods, this method appears to be both low cost and effective. The current work apparently is the first large-scale Down screening program performed with dried blood. [less ▲]
