The incidence of skin cancers is still on the rise despite information provided to the public and to cancer screening initiatives. We designed a 3D movie with the support of all Belgian university departments of dermatology. Looking at the impact of ultraviolet light in cells was the objective of this presentation. Several themes of actuality were addressed including genotoxicity of light, the primary prevention of skin cancers, the field actinodermatosis and cancerogenesis, the skin cancer epidemiology, the duality of skin melanomas with contrasted prognoses, and the recognition of melanoma stem cells.

The diabetic patient, when type 2 diabetes is newly diagnosed, raises a therapeutic problem commonly observed in clinical practice, which is more complex than expected at first glance. The physician has to select the most appropriate antidiabetic oral agent as first choice, to consider the potential of using combined glucose-lowering therapies, to fix glycaemic target taking into account the individual benefit/risk ratio, and to offer the best protection against cardiovascular complications. The present clinical case illustrates such therapeutic problem describing a patient with a high cardiovascular risk profile who experienced a hypoglycaemic episode after the prescription of glibenclamide following the discovery of a moderate hyperglycaemia.

Iodinated contrast agents are frequently involved in delayed polymorphic adverse skin reactions. Acute generalized exanthematous pustulosis following administration of iodinated contrast agents is a rare but severe form of such reactions. The disease is characterized by the sudden occurrence of an erosive and pustular erythroderma with fever, leukocytosis and sometimes peripheral adenopathies and liver involvement. This condition is considered as an immunologic reaction, primarily involving T lymphocytes. The overall mortality reaches about 1%. Elucidating the differential diagnosis with other acute paroxysmal drug eruptions (toxic epidermal necrolysis, Steven-Johnson syndrome and drug hypersensitivity syndrome) is of paramount importance for establishing the adequate treatment of PEAG.

The main clinical manifestations of pseudoxanthoma elasticum (PXE) alter small arteries, the eyes and the skin. At the microanatomical level, the feature in common is an alteration of the elastic fibres that appear dystrophic and in part calcified. The disease is genetically transmitted as an autosomal recessive trait. The gene coding for the MRP6 protein is often mutated. Thus PXE appears as a metabolic disease conveyed by serum. [less ▲]

BACKGROUND: A neonatal haemoglobinopathy screening programme was implemented in Brussels more than a decade ago and in Liège 5 years ago; the programme was adapted to the local situation. METHODS: Neonatal screening for haemoglobinopathies was universal, performed using liquid cord blood and an isoelectric focusing technique. All samples with abnormalities underwent confirmatory testing. Major and minor haemoglobinopathies were reported. Affected children were referred to a specialist centre. A central database in which all screening results were stored was available and accessible to local care workers. A central clinical database to monitor follow-up is under construction. RESULTS: A total of 191,783 newborns were screened. One hundred and twenty-three (1:1559) newborns were diagnosed with sickle cell disease, seven (1:27,398) with beta thalassaemia major, five (1:38,357) with haemoglobin H disease, and seven (1:27,398) with haemoglobin C disease. All major haemoglobinopathies were confirmed, and follow-up of the infants was undertaken except for three infants who did not attend the first medical consultation despite all efforts. CONCLUSIONS: The universal neonatal screening programme was effective because no case of major haemoglobinopathy was identified after the neonatal period. The affected children received dedicated medical care from birth. The screening programme, and specifically the reporting of minor haemoglobinopathies, has been an excellent health education tool in Belgium for more than 12 years. [less ▲]

Radiation recall dermatitis is an inflammatory skin reaction occurring in a previously irradiated field following the delivery of a promoting agent. It has been described after a number of antineoplastic agents such as gemcitabine, taxanes, anthracyclines. We report the case of a 50-year-old man with metastatic prostate cancer who developed two consecutive radiation recall dermatitis episodes triggered by oral cyclophosphamide. They occurred 4 to 5 weeks after palliative radiotherapy on bone metastasis. Spontaneous resolution was observed within 6 weeks after discontinuation of cyclophosphamide and with local supportive care. To our knowledge this is the first reported case of radiation recall dermatitis after oral cyclophosphamide. [less ▲]

In tumor cells, the transcription factor NF-kappaB has been described to be antiapoptotic and proproliferative and involved in the production of angiogenic factors such as vascular endothelial growth factor. From these data, a protumorigenic role of NF-kappaB has emerged. Here, we examined in endothelial cells whether NF-kappaB signaling pathway is involved in mediating the angiostatic properties of angiogenesis inhibitors. The current report describes that biochemically unrelated agents with direct angiostatic effect induced NF-kappaB activation in endothelial cells. Our data showed that endostatin, anginex, angiostatin, and the 16-kDa N-terminal fragment of human prolactin induced NF-kappaB activation in endothelial cells in both cultured human endothelial cells and in vivo in a mouse tumor model. It was also found that NF-kappaB activity was required for the angiostatic activity, because inhibition of NF-kappaB in endothelial cells impaired the ability of angiostatic agents to block sprouting of endothelial cells and to overcome endothelial cell anergy. Therefore, activation of NF-kappaB in endothelial cells can result in an unexpected antitumor outcome. Based on these data, the current approach of systemic treatment with NF-kappaB inhibitors may therefore be revisited because NF-kappaB activation specifically targeted to endothelial cells might represent an efficient strategy for the treatment of cancer.

Photovoltaic energy suffers from payback time. High solar concentration (above 500 suns) is a very interesting way to reduce production cost. The use of lenses allows more flexibility to make light flux more uniform. In addition lenses are less prone to errors of manufacture and can be easily duplicated. Unfortunately, optical materials are very dependent on the wavelength which causes important chromatic aberrations. One can think about achromatic doublets but doublets are thick, heavy and require exotic glasses which make them expensive. During the conference, I would like to present an innovative way to achromatize solar concentrators using hybrid (refractive/diffractive) lenses. Indeed, an hybrid lens is as thin as a Fresnel lens and is made in only one glass. But diffractive lenses suffer from limited broadband diffraction efficiency due to spurious orders. To overcome the lake of efficiency we are investigating the use of multi-layer diffractive optical element. This technique allows to achieve an efficiency greater than 97% over the full visible spectrum using only three components (e.g. two optical elements + air). [less ▲]
