The article examines the strengths and weaknesses of the concept of ‘flexicurity’, calling into question the tendency of the contemporary cultural imagination to regard flexibility as a framework for the expression of individual freedom. It then describes a range of possible policy options, in relation to the market, in the perspective of combining flexibility of labour and security of persons. Tree major options emerge: the ‘procedural’, the ‘neo-substantive’ and the ‘partnership’ options. As a conclusion, this article comes out in favour of different policy which would alter the framework for public intervention. It specially underlines the need for a ‘flexible’ and ‘decentred’ Welfare State, capable of supporting and encompassing forms of regulation emanating from civil society, in particular – but not exclusively – from the social partners.

This article aims to highlight the position occupied by compromise in the field of ethics. The argument is set out in two stages. First, the author attempts to clarify the contours of compromise by treating it as both a procedure or process of conflict resolution and a goal or ‘‘solution’’ to be achieved. In the second stage, he examines the distinction that could be made between ‘‘morality in compromise’’ and ‘‘morality of compromise’’, so as to measure its import and show how compromise not only contains elements specific to morality as a system but can also be a form of morality in itself.

The authors propose a reflection on the status of compromise in European sociological tradition, and more particularly in two classical authors, Durkheim and Weber, as well as in several contemporary authors who follow in Weber’s footsteps. After having noted the absence of any reference to the idea of compromise in Durkheim’s work, they posit that it is nevertheless possible to detect the presence of compromise as an implicit category in Weber’s writings, notably through his distinction between different ethics. While it is explicitly present in the contemporary authors examined, the concept is related to the different proceduralization theories found in Habermas, Crozier, Sainsaulieu and Reynaud. [less ▲]

L’objectif de la méthode d’inventaire « sylvicole » proposée est de fournir au gestionnaire un outil relativement simple et fiable qui lui permette d’acquérir une meilleure connaissance de l’état des peuplements feuillus irréguliers, en particulier après l’avènement de la « maladie du hêtre » survenue en 1999 en Wallonie. Celle-ci a causé d’importants dégâts au sein des hêtraies d’Ardenne et de Gaume, allant jusqu’à bouleverser profondément le faciès de certaines hêtraies. Dans ce contexte, l’accent a été mis sur l’évaluation des perspectives sylvicoles de chaque parcelle (ou compartiment), essentiellement avec un objectif d’estimation de l’état sanitaire des arbres et de planification d’interventions sylvicoles les mieux adaptées à l’état des peuplements. La méthode proposée est basée sur la réalisation d’un inventaire par échantillonnage permettant de collecter une information complète, très utile à une gestion sylvicole relativement fine des peuplements feuillus. Une procédure de cartographie thématique des différents paramètres relevés sur le terrain ou issus de requêtes de l’utilisateur a également été développée. Le présent document décrit les modalités de mise en oeuvre ainsi que les possibilités d’exploitation de la méthode d’inventaire proposée. [less ▲]

In the presence of a clinical acute monoarthritis, a differential diagnosis has to be made between septic arthritis, gout and diffuse chondrocalcinosis. Gout comes from a purine nucleotide metabolism disorder leading to serum urate level elevation. This hyperuricemia can lead to the deposition of monosodium urate crystals in the joints, causing acute attacks. After long-term evolution, others tissues as the kidneys can be involved: it is chronic gout. The definite diagnosis is based on the presence of monosodium urate crystals in the joint fluid. The diagnosis of gout should prompt a search for associated medical conditions that may affect both urate levels and longevity. These include alcoholism, various nephropathies, myeloproliferative disorders, and hypertension. [less ▲]

Familial Mediterranean Fever (FMF) is an hereditary disease that especially affects people living around the Mediterranean sea. It is characterized by recurring fever and abdominal pain, eventually associated with localised pleuritis, synovitis or skin inflammation. The most serious complication is amyloidosis, which can lead to terminal renal failure. The attacks and complications can be avoided by life long administration of colchicine. Two independent French and American teams discovered the gene responsible for the disease in 1997. It encodes for a protein named pyrin/marenostrin involved in the homeostasis the inflammatory mechanisms. The main mutations have been identified and are henceforth accessible for molecular screening. [less ▲]

Etoricoxib (Arcoxia) is a novel non steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that selectively inhibits the inducible form of cyclo-oxygenase (COX), COX-2. Etoricoxib has a higher COX-1/COX-2 selectivity ratio than the other COX-2-selective NSAIDs as rofecoxib, valdecoxib or celecoxib. Tablets of 60, 90 and 120 mg are available. The recommended dosage of etoricoxib is 60 mg/day for osteoarthritis, 90 mg/day for rheumatoid arthritis and 120 mg/day for acute gouty arthritis. Etoricoxib's efficacy has been widely studied in comparative studies, showing the same efficacy as non-COX-2 selective NSAID, with fewer gastro-intestinal adverse effects. [less ▲]

PLAG1 is a proto-oncogene whose ectopic expression can trigger the development of pleomorphic adenomas of the salivary glands and of lipoblastomas. As PLAG1 is a transcription factor, able to activate transcription through the binding to the consensus sequence GRGGC(N)(6-8)GGG, its ectopic expression presumably results in the deregulation of target genes, leading to uncontrolled cell proliferation. The identification of PLAG1 target genes is therefore a crucial step in understanding the molecular mechanisms involved in PLAG1-induced tumorigenesis. To this end, we analysed the changes in gene expression caused by the conditional induction of PLAG1 expression in fetal kidney 293 cell lines. Using oligonucleotide microarray analyses of about 12 000 genes, we consistently identified 47 genes induced and 12 genes repressed by PLAG1. One of the largest classes identified as upregulated PLAG1 targets consists of growth factors such as the insulin-like growth factor II and the cytokine-like factor 1. The in silico search for PLAG1 consensus sequences in the promoter of the upregulated genes reveals that a large proportion of them harbor several copies of the PLAG1-binding motif, suggesting that they represent direct PLAG1 targets. Our approach was complemented by the comparison of the expression profiles of pleomorphic adenomas induced by PLAG1 versus normal salivary glands. Concordance between these two sets of experiments pinpointed 12 genes that were significantly and consistently upregulated in pleomorphic adenomas and in PLAG1-expressing cells, identifying them as putative PLAG1 targets in these tumors.

A consultation motivated by an enlarged red leg is a common situation. The causes are multiple and the diagnosis primarily relies on case history and physical examination distinguishing inflammatory red legs from erythemato-violaceous presentations. Additional diagnostic search cannot be described as a single standardized procedure. Each disease calls for specific and different paraclinical investigations. The most frequent cause is erysipelas or a thrombophlebitis. Some vascular malformations and some functional circulatory disturbances are also possible, as well as sequelae of panniculitis or borreliosis. [less ▲]
