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 ▲]

Les techniques d'information et de communication permettent aujourd'hui de concevoir des façons de faire de la recherche beaucoup plus efficaces, plus rapides, plus fondamentalement généreuses et désintéressées qu'auparavant. Cependant, l'évolution s'avère beaucoup plus lente qu'on ne pourrait s'y attendre. Elle est même frileuse. La cause de ce quasi immobilisme réside dans le conservatisme des procédures d'évaluation de la recherche et des chercheurs. Tant que celles-ci en resteront aux principes qui prévalaient au siècle dernier, il ne faut pas s'attendre à de vrais progrès. Pourquoi tant d'immobilisme dans un univers qui se dit progressiste, inventif, créatif et ouvert ? Un dégel n'est-il pas inévitable ? souhaitable ? Les pratiques traditionnelles ne sont-elles pas devenues moralement indéfendables en regard des moyens disponibles ? Est-ce une fatalité que la Science se montre aussi progressiste dans sa recherche et conservatrice pour son évaluation ? La Science Ouverte crée une brèche dans cette muraille d'un autre temps.

Quaternary prevention, as a product of the patient doctor relationships, involves actions taken to identify patients at risk of Overmedicalisation, to protect them from unnecessary medical procedures and offer ethically acceptable alternatives. Quaternary prevention, born from the meeting between two worlds of thought, two cultural backgrounds, two kinds of anxiety implies deep implications for decision about mental health issues. There is an urgent need for quaternary prevention in primary care mental health, to counter the medicalisation of normal distressing human emotions and take care with humanity of suffering human beings. The relational bases of the P4 concept are exposed. A Continual Profesional Development session (two days) of a team of 25 French GPs based in St Etienne, France (ADEPUL, CPD society, October 2016) about “Quaternary attitude and mental health” in six steps is related. Step 1; one month before the seminar : retrieving of clinical personal experiences . Step 2; sharing experiences in little groups report synthesis. Step 3; (second day) Critical reading report experts contributions. Step 4; Disease or disease mongering in mental health case reports debate. Step 5; Pros & cons trial about ADD/H, tribunal, attorney, lawyer, jury and final judgment. Step 6; After one month, exchange of modified clinical situations related by participants. [less ▲]

En Europe, comme sur d’autres continents, le régime démocratique s’est progressivement développé depuis le 19e siècle. Le droit électoral assure désormais assez largement aux gouvernés la possibilité de participer égalitairement au choix de leurs représentants politiques. Certaines règles électorales produisent toutefois encore des inégalités qui sont contestables et qui sont régulièrement mises en cause devant les plus hautes juridictions, telle que la Cour européenne des droits de l’homme et les cours constitutionnelles nationales. La conférence visera à synthétiser la jurisprudence pertinente et à esquisser la conception de la démocratie qui en ressort. Elle mettra notamment l’accent sur la tendance des juridictions à admettre les règles électorales qui favorisent l’accès au parlement des seuls partis considérés comme « suffisamment représentatifs », au détriment des formations politiques nouvelles ou plus marginales.

The use of crop biotechnology is steadily increasing in the agrosystems of industrialized countries. Recent advances in genome editing are anticipated to further accentuate this trend. Given its potential for low input agriculture, there is a need to bring the benefits of crop biotechnology to developing and emerging countries. The challenge goes beyond the mere generation of transgenic crops because development and deployment of genetically engineered crops require local capacities and support from the authorities. In the recent years, we have used biotechnological approaches to improve cassava, the most important root crop in the tropics. Cassava production and processing suffer from several constraints, including viral diseases, drought and post-harvest deterioration. A better understanding of crop responses to biotic and abiotic stresses combined with genetic engineering approaches can be particularly instrumental to generate plants with improved traits. We have used Omics approaches to characterize cassava response to stresses and to subsequently implement biotechnological approaches for trait improvement. Smallholders and industries in cassava growing regions need traits such as resistance against cassava mosaic and brown streak diseases, prolonged shelf-life, drought tolerance, modified starch and improved nutritional content. Importantly those technologies should be implemented in local germplasm to secure impact for the local value chains. We actively collaborate with local institutions for technology transfer and assessment of cassava technologies in the field. [less ▲]

The Q-Codes are a classification of non-clinical items in General Practice / Family Medicine (GP/FM). This list is in an ontology-ready format, and made available at www.hetop.eu by the Departement of medical informatics, University of Rouen, France. The Q-Codes, whose classification is complementary to ICPC-2, are part of the 3CGP project and are intended to retrieve the main organizational concepts in GP/FM. 3CGP is an acronym for “Core Content Classification in Primary Care.” The 3CGP project joins ICPC-2 and Q-Codes to create a new ontology to improve the indexing of grey literature in GP/FM.
