Mediastin pathology includes primary lesion and lymph node invasion. The exploration of this anatomical region remains difficult and even hazardous, particularly to obtain histological biopsies. No invasive diagnostic exploration (thorax tomodensitometry and positron emission tomography) allows a histological precision, so mediastinoscopy remains the gold standard in the mediastinum investigation. However, it is not deprived of risk. Recently, guided biopsies and real-time transbronchial needle aspiration by endobronchial ultrasonography (EBUS) have been shown to increase the diagnostic yield over conventional bronchoscopic techniques. Therefore, EBUS is a suitable alternative to mediastinoscopy in the diagnosis of pulmonary or extra-thoracic malignancy, in the staging of mediastinal lymphadenopathy, and in the evaluation of mediastinal response after induction therapy. In the present paper, we present this new diagnostic approach and clarify the current indications of EBUS. [less ▲]

Because of the multifactorial nature of hypertension, most patients require combination therapy to achieve blood pressure control. Very often the antihypertensive regimen includes a renin-angiotensin system blocker, a calcium channel blocker, and a diuretic. Currently, several associations combining two antihypertensive agents with complementary mechanisms of action are available. These combination therapies are more efficient to control blood pressure through synergistic and additive effects, can reach target blood pressure more quickly, are likely to attenuate the side effects of each molecule, and could improve patient adherence. Exforge HCT is the first fixed-dose combination of three antihypertensive drugs including amlodipine besylate, valsartan and hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) in a single pill. The association of these three drugs improves, with an equal tolerance, blood pressure control compared to dual therapies (valsartan/HCTZ, amlodipine/valsartan, or HCTZ/amlodipine). This triple therapy attenuates the diuretic-induced hypokalemia. The benefits of triple therapy over dual therapy are observed regardless of age, sex, race, ethnicity, or baseline mean sitting systolic blood pressure. Exforge HCT is currently indicated for the treatment of essential hypertension, as replacement therapy for adult patients whose blood pressure is adequately controlled by the combination of amlodipine, valsartan and HCTZ.

Toutes les organisations de commerce équitable (OCE) ont en commun d’être confrontées aux tensions traversant l’ensemble du mouvement équitable, entre une logique de solidarité et une logique de marché. Ce qui différencie les OCE, c’est la manière de gérer cette tension et de se positionner par rapport à ces différentes logiques. L’objectif de cette contribution est d’éclairer ces différents positionnements à travers l’étude des objectifs organisationnels, des ressources, du statut juridique et des instances de gouvernance des OCE. Nous commençons par présenter la grille théorique qui introduit ces différents indicateurs organisationnels. Ensuite, nous proposons quatre scénarios possibles (et empiriquement observés) de gestion des tensions : le scénario commercial, le scénario socio-politique, le scénario intégratif et le scénario de dédoublement. Ces scénarios sont illustrés par des exemples d’OCE du Nord. Enfin, après une synthèse de ces quatre scénarios, nous nous penchons sur leurs implications sur l’avenir du mouvement équitable.

A study has been conducted with broilers to assess, during the rainy season, the effects of groundnut cake substitution by glandless Cottonseed Kernel (CSK), at levels of 0, 25, 50 and 75%. The substitution improved linearly feed intake and animal growth, as well as carcass component weights and allometric parameters. The CSK increased the C18:2 n-6 to C18:1 n-9 ratio, as well in diet as in meat and subcutaneous fat. In order to explain the observed performances, the possibility is considered that broilers used preferentially C18:2 n-6 fatty acids for their metabolism. Complete glandless cottonseed kernels are probably highly valuable for broilers production in warm and wet conditions. [less ▲]

Prasugrel (Efient), a thienopyridine of third generation, is a prodrug that, like clopidogrel, requires conversion to an active metabolite before binding to the platelet P2Y12 receptor to confer antiplatelet activity. At the currently studied doses, prasugrel inhibits adenosine diphosphate-induced platelet aggregation more rapidly, more consistently, and to a greater extent than do standard and higher doses of clopidogrel. The risk of myocardial ischemic events in patients with acute coronary syndromes has been shown to be reduced by means of platelet inhibition. Dual-antiplatelet therapy with aspirin and clopidogrel has become the cornerstone of treatment to prevent thrombotic complications of acute coronary syndromes and percutaneous coronary intervention. In patients with acute coronary syndromes (TRITON-TIMI 38 trial), prasugrel therapy was associated with significantly reduced rates of ischemic events, including stent thrombosis, but with an increased risk of major bleeding. Subjects with diabetes mellitus tended to even have a greater reduction in ischemic events with prasugrel. In Belgium, Efient is currently reimbursed for 1 year in patients with an acute coronary syndrome and scheduled for a percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) who present at least one of the following criteria: primary PCI for ST-elevation myocardial infarction, stent thrombosis despite treatment with clopidogrel, or diabetes mellitus.

Viroids are non encapsidated small RNA plant pathogens unable to produce any protein. They are able to infect dramatically a broad range of plants including herbaceous and tree crops. The ways by which viroids are able to induce diseases are actually unknown. However, recent studies have shown that viroids are able to regulate the gene expression of their hosts, they can modify the host-protein phosphorylation sensibility and they interact with host-protein implicated RNA trafficking and protein phosphorylation. Moreover during their evolution plants have developed a mechanism able to regulate their gene expression and to degrade exogenous RNAs like viroids: the gene silencing. Unfortunately, this pathway seems, now, also highly implicated in the symptoms development. This review describes studies that are realized since a few years to increase the knowledge about the plant-viroid relationship. [less ▲]

Theory and empirical studies suggest that cannibalism in age-structured populations can regulate recruitment depending on the intensity of intraspecific competition between cannibals and victims and the nature of the cannibalism window, i.e., which size classes interact as cannibals and victims. Here we report on a series of experiments that quantify that window for age-structured populations of salamander larvae and paedomorphic adults. We determined body size limits on cannibalism in microcosms and then the consumptive and nonconsumptive (injuries, foraging and activity, diet, growth) effects on victims in mesocosms with seminatural levels of habitat complexity and alternative prey. We found that cannibalism by the largest size classes (paedomorphs and >age 3+yr larvae) occurs mainly on young-of-the-year (YOY) victims. Surviving YOY and other small larvae had increased injuries, reduced activity levels, and reduced growth rates in the presence of cannibals. Data on YOY survival in an experiment in which we manipulated the density of paedomorphs combined with historical data on the number of cannibals in natural populations indicate that dominant cohorts of paedomorphs can cause observed recruitment failures. Dietary data indicate that ontogenetic shifts in diet should preclude strong intraspecific competition between YOY and cannibals in this species. Thus our results are consistent with previous empirical and theoretical work that suggests that recruitment regulation by cannibalism is most likely when YOY are vulnerable to cannibalism, but have low dietary overlap with cannibals. Understanding the role of cannibalism in regulating recruitment in salamander populations is timely given the widespread occurrences of amphibian decline. Previous studies have focused on extrinsic (including anthropogenic) factors that affect amphibian population dynamics, whereas the data presented here combined with long-term field observations suggest the potential for intrinsically driven population cycles.

La haute couture a généralement été cernée dans les rapports qu'elle entretient avec les opérations de "griffe" propres à la haute culture, dans l'esprit de l'article fondateur réservé à cette question par Pierre Bourdieu et Yvette Delsaut ("Le couturier et sa griffe : contribution à une théorie de la magie", Actes de la recherche, 1975). L'examen d'un corpus de nécrologies de grands couturiers dans Paris Match montre que la haute couture se trouve aujourd'hui de plus en plus indexée du côté de la culture de masse sous l'impulsion de facteurs internes à son propre secteur de production (allant dans le sens d'une certaine fabrication standardisée) et externes (relevant d'une logique people appliquée aux représentants les plus médiatisés du secteur).
