The manuscript describes the observation of Martian mesosphericclouds between 60 and 80 km altitude by the Imaging Ultraviolet Spectrograph (IUVS) on NASA’sMAVEN spacecraft. The cloud observations are uniquely obtained at early morning local times, whichcomplement previous observations obtained primarily later in the diurnal cycle. Differences in thegeographic distribution of the clouds from IUVS observations indicate that the local time is crucial for theinterpretation of mesospheric cloud formation. We also report concurrent observations of upperatmospheric scale heights near 170 km altitude, which are diagnostic of temperature. These observationssuggest that the dynamics enabling the formation of mesospheric clouds propagate all the way to theupper atmosphere. [less ▲]

Background: Early onset neonatal sepsis due to salmonella spp is rare in developed countries. Vertical and horizontal transmissions were described, including faecal contamination of the birth canal. After a short incubation period, newborns may remain asymptomatic or present with sepsis or meningitis. Mortality rate as high as 58% were reported. Case Presentation Summary: We report a case of transplacental Salmonella Typhimurium infection in a premature infant. A mother with a one day history of fever and diarrhoea spontaneously delivered a premature boy at 35 weeks of gestation. On day 3, the infant presented with symptoms suggesting necrotizing enterocolitis: apnea, respiratory distress, feeding intolerance, bloody diarrhea and fever. Feeding were suspended and intravenous antibiotic therapy (ampicillin, amikacine and metronidazole) initiated. Laboratory data showed an inflammatory syndrome with elevated C-reactive proteine (71 mg/l), leukocytopenia (7270/mm3) and severe lymphopenia (580/mm3). Enterocolitis stage 1 (Bell classification) was diagnosed based on clinical and radiological evaluation. Salmonella spp were grown from the baby’s blood and stools and from the mother’s stools; the National Reference Center identified a Salmonella Typhimurium. Cerebrospinal fluid culture remained sterile. Clinical and biological evolutions were rapidly favourable with 14-days of cefotaxim IV. Maternal history revealed consumption of raw meat 3 days before delivery.Learning Points/Discussion: Salmonella spp should be considered in the differential diagnosis of early onset sepsis, particularly when mother presents gastrointestinal symptoms. Food safety education is crucial. The consumption of raw or uncooked meat during pregnancy should be avoided regardless toxoplasmosis immunization status. To avoid outbreaks in the neonatal ward (as reported in the literature), rapid detection and prompt institution of isolation and clustering measures are important. [less ▲]

The focus on outpatient follow-up of newborn infants increases as the duration of hospital stay after birth decreases. The first outpatient visit addresses the adequacy of the home transition. Appropriate feedings are checked. Sudden infant death syndrome prevention and security advices are reminded. Realisation of both neonatal dried blood screen and hearing test is confirmed, as well as planning of specific follow-up appointments. The physical exam will focus on red flags for diseases or malformations with a delayed presentation. [less ▲]

From the perspective of stimulating intermodal transport as an ecological and economically promising freight transport scheme in the EU, this paper is devoted to assess its future position with respect to crucial and plausible operational factors that were selected a priori. The study is conducted in the context of a best-case scenario development, within a rational and optimal decision making framework. We address this goal by designing a realistic medium-term network design and pricing model, from the economic perspective of a typical intermodal operator, fitted to the sequential mathematical structure of bilevel programming. Based on real-life sized data, in and through Belgium, the results underline the costly position of rail transport and a clear correlation between the competitiveness of intermodal transport on one side, and the market size and the trucking competition’s price on the other. It is additionally suggested that intermodal transport can benefit from small rail subsidies in the early market covering stages. [less ▲]

Because of the progressive loss of nigro-striatal dopaminergic terminals in Parkinson’s disease (PD), in vivo quantitative imaging of dopamine (DA) containing neurons in animal models of PD is of critical importance in the pre-clinical evaluation of highly awaited disease-modifying therapies. Among existing methods, the high sensitivity of positron emission tomography (PET) is attractive to achieve that goal. The aim of this study was to perform a quantitative comparison of brain images obtained in 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA) lesioned rats using two dopaminergic PET radiotracers, namely [18F]fluoro-3,4-dihydroxyphenyl-L-alanine ([18F]FDOPA) and 6-[18F]fluoro-L-m-tyrosine ([18F]FMT). Because the imaging signal is theoretically less contaminated by metabolites, we hypothesized that the latter would show stronger relationship with behavioural and post-mortem measures of striatal dopaminergic deficiency. We used a within-subject design to measure striatal [18F]FMT and [18F]FDOPA uptake in eight partially lesioned, eight fully lesioned and ten sham-treated rats. Animals were pretreated with an L-aromatic amino acid decarboxylase (AADC) inhibitor. A catechol-O-methyl transferase inhibitor was also given before [18F]FDOPA PET. Quantitative estimates of striatal uptake were computed using conventional graphical Patlak method. Striatal dopaminergic deficiencies were measured with apomorphine-induced rotations and post-mortem striatal DA content. We observed a strong relationship between [18F]FMT and [18F]FDOPA estimates of decreased uptake in the denervated striatum using the tissue-derived uptake rate constant Kc. However, only [18F]FMT Kc succeeded to discriminate between the partial and the full 6-OHDA lesion and correlated well with the post-mortem striatal DA content. This study indicates that the [18F]FMT could be more sensitive, with respect of [18F]FDOPA, to investigate DA terminals loss in 6-OHDA rats, and open the way to in vivo AADC activity targeting in future investigations on progressive PD models.
