Stroke is the third leading cause of death and the main cause of prolonged disability of adults in industrialised countries. After a first transient ischemic attack or a first minor stroke, the risk of recurrence is 16 folds higher than in control subjects. Therefore each patient suspect of a first ischemic cerebral event should be evaluated for the presence of a specific cause which could be treated. If such a cause is not found, platelet antiaggregant medications should be started. [less ▲]

Aujourd'hui, nous recevons Thérèse Scali, chercheuse en psychologie au Département Psychologies Cliniques et Systèmes Humains, chez le Professeur D'Amore. Une ouverture, pour nous et cette émission, vers les sciences humaines. Avec Maud Brasseur et Marc Henri Bawin en studio, cette édition va dérouler en trois temps mais, à la demande de notre invitée, sur une structure différente. Exit donc les simplicius et décodage. Nous allons commencer par une présentation du contexte social, politique et surtout législatif qui est particulièrement propice aux recherches de Thérèse Scali. Ensuite, nous allons aborder la méthode de recherche utilisée en sciences humaines et sociales : une approche quantitative ou qualitative. Enfin, nous aborderons les résultats auxquels, après deux ans de thèse, elle peut déjà prétendre." [less ▲]

OBJECTIVE: Infertility due to anticancer treatments is a major source of distress for young patients with cancer. A survey was performed among breast cancer patients younger than 35 years, to evaluate the acceptance of chemotherapy in the context of infertility risk. METHODS: After obtaining written informed consent, we asked 400 premenopausal, early stage breast cancer patients aged </=35 years to complete a short, previously pilot-tested questionnaire. Three hundred and eighty-nine patients were evaluable. The association between the explanatory variables and the outcome variables was assessed using logistic regression. RESULTS: Two hundred and twenty-eight (59%) participants wanted to have (more) children in the future, whereas 158 (41%) did not. Fifty-seven (36%) of the latter did not want additional children because of fear of cancer recurrence. Thirty-two women (8%) stated they would not accept chemotherapy should it reduce their fertility. This was dependent upon already having children, the wish to have (further) children, geographical area, disease stage, and already planned chemotherapy. One hundred and seventy-one women who would agree to chemotherapy (48%) would accept a risk of infertility of 76-100%. This acceptance was dependent on already having children and the wish to have (more) children. Of the 355 participants (91%) accepting chemotherapy, 48 would accept it only for >/=20% gain in cure. CONCLUSION: For the majority of young patients with breast cancer, cure remains their first priority; for this, they are willing to accept a considerable decrease in future fertility, and only less than 10% will forego chances of cure to preserve fertility.

Previous European surveys showed the support of healthcare professionals for treatment withdrawal [i.e., artificial nutrition and hydration (ANH) in chronic vegetative state (VS) patients]. The recent definition of minimally conscious state (MCS), and possibly research advances (e.g., functional neuroimaging), may have lead to uncertainty regarding potential residual perception and may have influenced opinions of healthcare professionals. The aim of the study was to update the end-of-life attitudes towards VS and to determine the end-of-life attitudes towards MCS. A 16-item questionnaire related to consciousness, pain and end-of-life issues in chronic (i.e., >1 year) VS and MCS and locked-in syndrome was distributed among attendants of medical and scientific conferences around Europe (n = 59). During a lecture, the items were explained orally to the attendants who needed to provide written yes/no responses. Chi-square tests and logistic regression analyses identified differences and associations for age, European region, religiosity, profession, and gender. We here report data on items concerning end-of-life issues on chronic VS and MCS. Responses were collected from 2,475 participants. For chronic VS (>1 year), 66% of healthcare professionals agreed to withdraw treatment and 82% wished not to be kept alive (P < 0.001). For chronic MCS (>1 year), less attendants agreed to withdraw treatment (28%, P < 0.001) and wished not to be kept alive (67%, P < 0.001). MCS was considered worse than VS for the patients in 54% and for their families in 42% of the sample. Respondents’ opinions were associated with geographic region and religiosity. Our data show that end-of-life opinions differ for VS as compared to MCS. The introduction of the diagnostic criteria for MCS has not substantially changed the opinions on end-of-life issues on permanent VS. Additionally, the existing legal ambiguity around MCS may have influenced the audience to draw a line between expressing preferences for self versus others, by implicitly recognizing that the latter could be a step on the slippery slope to legalize euthanasia. Given the observed individual variability, we stress the importance of advance directives and identification of proxies when discussing end-of-life issues in patients with disorders of consciousness.

Wireworms, the belowground larvae of click beetles (Coleoptera: Elateridae), represent a threat for various crops, including cereals, potatoes and small fruits, in many countries. In order to promote the development of bio-pesticides or the selection of resistant varieties, studies concerning the close relationship between wireworms and the roots they attack have to be conducted. Indeed, lacks of knowledge in the chemical ecology of these small but consequent pests baffle such achievements. Here, we studied the reactions of wireworms (Agriotes sordidus Illiger) facing root-emitted volatile organic compounds (VOCs) of barley. We first tested the ability of wireworms to orientate towards a blend of volatile compounds emitted by seven day’s old mashed roots of barley grown in vermiculite. We used a Y-shaped horizontal olfactometre, which inferior half was filled with compressed and humidified vermiculite. Wireworms were able to detect blends of volatiles emitted by mashed roots, and to orientate their foraging behaviour toward the emission source. Volatile compounds were identified from barley roots using SPME-GC-MS and several chemicals were identified. This study is part of a larger programme which purpose is the identification of VOCs emitted by the roots of barley and different actors of the rhizosphere, and to assess their semiochemical functions.

The ability of wireworms (Agriotes sordidus Illiger) to orientate towards a blend of volatiles emitted by chopped roots of barley was tested. During individual tests, the larvae chose between the two sides of a Y-shaped olfactometer. One side was connected to a chamber containing the chopped roots and the other was connected to an empty chamber. Wireworms chose significantly more often the side of the olfactometer providing the blend of root volatiles. This result underlines the importance of the identification of these compounds and their role assessment alone or combined, as for their effect on wireworms. Such compounds could be used in IPM strategies. [less ▲]

Wireworms (Coleoptera: Elateridae) are soil dwelling pests of many crops. Aldrin and lindane used to provide satisfactory treatment levels of infested lands. Their withdrawal from the market for environmental issues gave birth to new needs in terms of management. In order to enhance integrated management of this pest, we work on the chemical ecology of Agriotes sordidus Illiger. We focus on its interaction with barley roots, mediated by volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Our experimentations are based on behavioural responses of wireworms in olfactometric devices and their statistical relevance [less ▲]

We previously found that both male and female aromatase knockout (ArKO) mice, which cannot synthesize estrogens due to a targeted mutation of the aromatase gene, showed less investigation of volatile body odors from anesthetized conspecifics of both sexes in Y-maze tests. We now ask whether ArKO mice are in fact capable of discriminating between and/or responding to volatile odors. Using habituation/dishabituation tests, we found that gonadectomized ArKO and wild-type (WT) mice of both sexes, which were tested without any sex hormone replacement, reliably distinguished between undiluted volatile urinary odors of either adult males or estrous females versus deionized water as well as between these two urinary odors themselves. However, ArKO mice of both sexes were less motivated than WT controls to investigate same-sex odors when they were presented last in the sequence of stimuli. In a second experiment, we compared the ability of ArKO and WT mice to respond to decreasing concentrations of either male or female urinary odors. We found a clear-cut sex difference in urinary odor attraction thresholds among WT mice: WT males failed to respond to urine dilutions higher than 1:20 by volume, whereas WT females continued to respond to urine dilutions up to 1:80. Male ArKO mice resembled WT females in their ability to respond to lower concentrations of urinary odors, raising the possibility that the observed sex difference among WT mice in urine attraction thresholds results from the perinatal actions of estrogen in the male nervous system. Female ArKO mice failed to show significant dishabituation responses to two (1:20 and 1:80) dilutions of female urine, perhaps, again, because of a reduced motivation to investigate less salient, same-sex urinary odors. Previously observed deficits in the preference of ArKO male and female mice to approach volatile body odors from conspecifics of either sex cannot be attributed to an inability of ArKO subjects to discriminate these odors according to sex but instead may reflect a deficient motivation to approach same-sex odors, especially when their concentration is low.

Disulfide bonds are post-translational modifications often found in biological compounds and especially in animal toxins. Disulfide bonds participate in the formation of specific folding of peptides and proteins, directly related to their biological activity. Cystein pairing determinations are primordial for the synthesis of chemical homologous displaying the same bioactivity than the natural compound. This task appears already difficult when the cysteine pairings have to be determined from large proteins. The combination of physical and chemical techniques such as NMR, enzymatic proteolysis, liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry, is needed to circumvent this difficulty. However, when the work concerns small compounds such as conotoxins, the problem is much more complex due to the low amount of available compound and to the lack of enzymatic cleavage sites between cysteines. In this study, we investigate the case of small peptides that contain two disulphide bonds. The idea is to determine the cystein pairings in such compounds by a chemical partial reduction (or oxidation) of the peptides, followed by the separation of the generated species by ion-mobility mass spectrometry, and their characterisation by tandem mass spectrometry. Up to now, we have investigated the partial reduction not only in solution (with DTT and TCEP) but also in the gas-phase (Electron transfer dissociation), and partial oxidation in solution (with 3-CPBA). The results demonstrate an unexpected complexity of the data, including low fragmentation ratios of peptides and disulfide scramblings. [less ▲]
