The conference focused on international relations, strategic policies and security issues, such as the birth and evolution of Islamic State. The speech was about international sanctions adopted for guaranteeing peace and security. The legal framework has been analyzed, together with the political, economic and social effects of trade sanctions (such as embargoes) both from the perspective of sanctioning States and sanctioned ones.

Deletion of the growth hormone-releasing hormone gene (Ghrh) results in a severe deficiency of the somatotrope GHRH-GH-IGF-1 axis causing dwarf phenotype that can be reversed by GH or GHRH supplementation (Alba & Salvatori, Endocrinology 2004;145:4134). In basal conditions, the immunological phenotype of Ghrh-/- mice is not markedly disturbed except for a decrease in B cells and an increase in generation of thymic (t) Treg cells (submitted for publication). These data prompted us to investigate immune responses of Ghrh-/- mice using vaccination and infection by S. pneumoniae as models since the response to both stimuli rely on the innate immune system and B cells. Ghrh-/- mice were unable to trigger production of specific IgM and IgG against serotype 1 pneumococcal polysaccharide (PPS) after vaccination with either native PPS (Pnx23) or protein-PPS conjugate (Prev-13) vaccines. A short GH supplementation to Ghrh-/- mice (1 daily injection of 1 mg/kg GH for 4 weeks) restored IgM and IgG response to Pnx23 vaccine but not to Prev-13. This suggests that GH differently impacts on B-1, marginal zone B-2 or innate B-1 B cells. Furthermore, after intranasal instillation of a non-lethal dose of serotype 1 S. pneumoniae, Ghrh-/- mice exhibited a dramatic susceptibility reflected by bacteremia 24h after infection and a survival limit of 72 h, compared to WT C57BL/6 mice that need only 24h to clear infection. The possible impact of GH deficiency on components of the innate immune system that play an important role in defense of the respiratory tract against pneumococcal infection is under current investigation.

The consultation is a meeting between two human beings, where one is the patient, playing the part of the sick, while the other plays the therapeutic role. It is also a meeting between knowledge and feeling. The doctor's knowledge/thoughts (true or false) influences the thoughts/knowledge (true or false) of the patient, in a dialectical relationship. In a way, the patient-doctor encounter is a meeting between science and conscience fitted in the symbolic world of human beings. The term science, as it is used here, encompasses the knowledge of the biological, the mental and the social being, as well as the observation of what is going on here and now, a cybernetic observation of the consultation itself, in a manner of speaking. Through his or her training, the doctor inevitably confronts the patient with the disease. It is his or her job to reveal it. He or she will be gratified to have, at least, found the evil, by always pushing the limits of diagnostic exploration. In an attempt to know better about what we are doing, we will go through a recent work on the main themes discussed by GPs during congresses ( www.hetop.eu/Q ) to examine which ones are dealing with the Quaternary prevention concept. We will ask to the participants if and when Quaternary prevention could exert a deep influence throughout their consultation process and their patients care pathway. [less ▲]

Controversy exists regarding the association of bovine leukemia virus (BLV) and breast cancer. PCR-based experimental evidence indicates that BLV DNA is present in breast tissue and that as many as 37% of cancer cases may be attributable to viral exposure. Since this association might have major consequences for human health, we evaluated 51 whole genomes of breast cancer samples for the presence of BLV DNA. Among 32 billion sequencing reads retrieved from the NCBI database of genotype and phenotype, none mapped on different strains of the BLV genome. Controls for sequence divergence and proviral loads further validated the approach. This unbiased analysis thus excludes a clonal insertion of BLV in breast tumor cells and strongly argues against an association between BLV and breast cancer. [less ▲]
