OBJECTIVE: To investigate the association between urinary biomarker Coll2-1NO2 (uColl2-1NO2) and incident knee OA after 2.5 years follow-up in middle-aged overweight and obese women at high risk for knee osteoarthritis (OA). DESIGN: Data were used from PROOF, a randomized controlled trial with 2.5 years follow-up evaluating the preventive effects of a diet and exercise program and oral glucosamine sulphate (double blind and placebo controlled), on development of incident knee OA in women with body mass index >/= 27 kg/m(2) without signs of knee OA at baseline. Baseline and 2.5 years uColl2-1NO2 concentrations were assessed with enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). Primary outcome measure was incidence of knee OA in one or both knees, defined as incidence of either Kellgren & Lawrence grade >/=2, joint space narrowing of >/=1.0 mm or knee OA according to the combined clinical and radiographic ACR-criteria. We used binary logistic regression for the association analyses. RESULTS: 254 women were available for analyses. At 2.5 years follow-up, incident knee OA was present in 72 of 254 women (28.3%). An inversed association was found between baseline uColl2-1NO2 and incident knee OA at 2.5 years (OR 0.74, 95% CI 0.55-0.99). The concentration at 2.5 years and the change in concentration over 2.5 years did not show significant associations with the outcome. CONCLUSIONS: In overweight and obese middle-aged women, not higher but lower baseline uColl2-1NO2 concentration was significantly associated with an increased risk for incident knee OA. This interesting but counterintuitive outcome makes further validation of this biomarker warranted. [less ▲]

L’Association, Une utopie éditoriale et esthétique est le premier volume d’histoire et d’analyse consacré à ce projet à tous égards exceptionnel. Richement illustré, interrogeant l’économie globale du collectif, ses auteurs et ses réalisations, mais aussi ses crises de croissance, L’Association, Une utopie éditoriale et esthétique est aussi l’œuvre de passionnés de bande dessinée. Passant d’un chapitre chronologique à une étude sémiotique, d’un article critique à une analyse esthétique, l’ouvrage forme un ensemble généreux et passionnant. Il offre plus de deux cents pages d’images célèbres et de documents rares qui nous donnent envie de (re)découvrir les auteurs et les albums de L’Association. Bel hommage éditorial, ce superbe album donne à voir et à comprendre vingt ans d’édition et de croisades esthétiques. [less ▲]

The objective of this study was to estimate the effects of ß--casein (CN) haplotypes on first-lactation milk production traits. The ß--CN haplotypes were deduced using information on ß- and -CN genotypes of cows and their sires for 16,973 Finnish Ayrshire cows that had at least nine paternal half sibs. Effects of CN haplotypes on milk production traits were estimated for one haplotype at a time using an animal model, which included the fixed effects for calving year and month, age at calving, days open, ß-lactoglobulin, and a ß--CN haplotype. Differences in milk production traits were also estimated between haplotype combinations A1A+A2B and A1B+A2A within ß--CN genotype A1A2AB and between combinations A1E+A2A and A1A+A2E within genotype A1A2AE. The ß--CN haplotypes A2A and A2B were associated with high milk and protein yields and low fat content, and those that included the ß-CN A1 allele were associated with low yields and high fat content. Protein content was affected by the -CN locus; haplotype A1B was associated with high protein content and A1E was with low protein content. The haplotype combination A1A+A2B was associated with 140 kg more milk yield (P = 0.045) and 0.03 percentage units less protein content (P = 0.055) than combination A1B+A2A, and combination A1A+A2E showed 0.02 percentage units greater protein content (P = 0.098) than A1E+A2A. These results indicate that genes linked to the CN loci contribute to the variation in milk yield and protein content. [less ▲]

Few studies have explored the prevalence of hallucinations in the non-clinical, elderly population. Also, the association between personality structure and hallucinations remains poorly investigated. The aims of the present study were twofold. First, to explore the influence of age on the prevalence of hallucination-proneness, and second, to examine the association between personality and hallucination-proneness in young and elderly subjects. A sample of young (n = 230) and elderly adults (n = 183) completed an elaborated and validated version of the Launay-Slade Hallucinations Scale (LSHS; Laroi, Marczewski, & Van der Linden, 2004) and the Five Factor Inventory version of the NEO Personality Inventory (NEO-FFI; Costa, [less ▲]

CONTEXT: In order to understand how certain personality traits influence the relation between depression symptoms and craving for alcohol, trait self-consciousness (trait SC) was examined during a withdrawal and detoxification program. METHODS: Craving (Obsessive and Compulsive Drinking Scale), depressive state (Beck Depression Inventory) and trait SC (Revised Self-Consciousness Scale) were assessed in alcohol-dependent inpatients (DSM-IV, N = 30) both at the beginning (T1: day 1 or 2) and at the end (T2: day 14 to18) of protracted withdrawal during rehabilitation. RESULTS: A significant decrease in craving and depressive symptoms was observed from T1 to T2, while SC scores remained stable. At both times, strong positive correlations were observed between craving and depression. Moreover, regression analyses indicated that trait SC significantly moderated the impact of depression on cravings for alcohol. LIMITATIONS: This study was performed on a relatively small sample size. Administration of medications during detoxification treatment can also be a confounding factor. Finally, craving could have been evaluated through other types of measurements. CONCLUSIONS: During protracted withdrawal, alcohol craving decreased with the same magnitude as depressive mood. Depressive symptoms were related to alcohol craving but only among patients with high trait SC scores. Our results suggest that metacognitive approaches targeting SC could decrease craving and, in turn, prevent future relapses. [less ▲]
