The prognosis for patients multiple myeloma (MM) has improved substantially over the past decade with the development of new, more effective chemotherapeutic agents and regimens that possess a high level of anti-tumor activity. In spite of this important progress, however, nearly all MM patients ultimately relapse, even those who experience a complete response to initial therapy. Management of relapsed MM thus represents a vital aspect of the overall care for patients with MM and a critical area of ongoing scientific and clinical research. This comprehensive manuscript from the International Myeloma Working Group provides detailed recommendations on management of relapsed disease, with sections dedicated to diagnostic evaluation, determinants of therapy, and general approach to patients with specific disease characteristics. In addition, the manuscript provides a summary of evidence from clinical trials that have significantly impacted the field, including those evaluating conventional dose therapies, as well as both autologous and allogeneic stem cell transplantation. Specific recommendations are offered for management of first and second relapse, relapsed and refractory disease, and both autologous and allogeneic transplant. Finally, perspective is provided regarding new agents and promising directions in management of relapsed MM. [less ▲]

The increased risk of breast cancer and thromboembolism in women who take hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a major public health problem. The discovery of new drugs with better safety profile would provide useful advances for patient care. Estetrol (E4) is a liver friendly promising candidate for HRT. In preclinical and/or clinical studies, E4 has been effective against the main symptoms of menopause from a starting dose of 0.3 mg/kg/day. The aim of this study was to define the impact of E4 on mammary gland and breast cancer development. Our preclinical data show that E4 is less efficient than estradiol (E2) to induce mammary gland growth. Treatment with several concentrations of E4 has shown that E4 did not increase tumor development, when it is used at 0.3 mg/kg/day. However, at 3 mg/kg/day, E4 increased tumor growth similarly to E2 (0.08 mg/kg/day). E4 presents also some anti-estrogenic effects on mammary gland and antitumor activity on breast cancer by decreasing the strong proliferative effect of E2. While ERα is the predominant receptor mediating its effects, the dual weak-estrogenic/anti-estrogenic feature of E4 results from differential signaling pathways activation. Both nuclear and rapid extra-nuclear signaling pathways are necessary for a complete estrogenic effect of E4. However, the antitumor action of E4 is not due to a capacity to antagonize E2-induced nuclear activity. In conclusion, our results support that E4, if it is used in strictly controlled clinical applications, could have no or only limited impact on breast and breast cancer. [less ▲]

L’objectif de notre recherche n’est pas de nous concentrer sur la création ni sur le parcours d’une initiative citoyenne européenne mais bien d’étudier les conséquences politiques qui ont suivi ces initiatives. Pour ce faire, et compte tenu de la proximité temporelle du lancement du procédé, nous proposons de concentrer notre analyse sur les différentes suites qui furent données à la première des trois propositions ayant abouti, « Right2water ». Hormis la réponse obligatoire de la Commission, nous analysons l’impact et la mobilisation des enjeux de l’initiative par les institutions, les partis politiques, les députés européens et nationaux. L’initiative citoyenne européenne s’est-elle traduite en règlements ? En propositions ? A-t-elle été récupérée dans des programmes et discours politiques ou, à l’inverse, a-t-elle été écartée de l’agenda politique européen ? En d’autres mots, les propositions citoyennes ont-elles un poids sur la scène politique européenne ? L’initiative ouvre-t-elle la porte des institutions aux revendications des citoyens ? [less ▲]

Objective. The BibliothEP study aimed to assess the efficacy of a bibliotherapy for premature ejaculation (PE) Design and method. The study was conducted in two phases. First, a sample of 120 participants suffering from PE read a concise cognitive behavioural self-help manual for PE (51 A5 pages including illustrations) and were compared after treatment to 66 waiting list controls. Second, 36 subjects received and read the self-help manual and were compared after treatment to 32 subjects having received the same manual plus a complementary brief guidance (45-90 minutes) from a coach not specialised in sex therapy, but who had been specifically trained to support the bibliotherapy intervention (by attending a 5-hour training module). The main outcome measures were self-determined latency time to ejaculation, feelings of control, sexual satisfaction, PE-related distress and subjective impression of improvement. Results. At 6-month posttreatment, all participants showed significant improvements as compared to waiting list condition. The improvements were maintained at 12 month. They were slightly greater in the case of complementary therapist support. Improvements were demonstrated for all forms of PE, but the intervention appeared to be slightly more effective when the problem was of moderate severity. In all cases, improvements in sexual functioning were accompanied by improvements in sexual cognitions. Conclusions. The cost-effectiveness of the self-help manual makes it a valuable first-line treatment for any form of PE. Moreover, the outcome of the bibliotherapy process might be increased by coaching from a health worker specifically trained to this aim. [less ▲]

• Ce travail de thèse a pour objet la traduction et la mise en œuvre concrète du Plan d’accompagnement et de suivi des demandeurs d’emploi par les conseillers emploi (FOREm et Actiris) et par les facilitateurs (ONEm) en Belgique francophone. Ceux-ci sont effectivement situés en première ligne dans la mise en « actes » et en « mots » de cette mesure d’activation. Notre entrée dans les pratiques d’accompagnement et de suivi des demandeurs d’emploi repose sur une démarche empirique foncièrement qualitative. Le travail de terrain s’est déroulé entre janvier 2013 et février 2014. Il repose sur une immersion au sein de huit sites, et articule la réalisation d’entretiens semi-directifs, la récolte de documents internes et l’observation d’entretiens. Prenant appui sur les apports de l’Economie des conventions, de la Nouvelle sociologie économique et de la Sociologie des groupes professionnels, ce travail met en exergue l’idée selon laquelle plutôt que « d’activer » les demandeurs d’emploi, il est question « d’agiter » ces derniers… [less ▲]
