In mammals, cochlear sensory hair cells that are responsible for hearing are postmitotic and are not replaced after loss. One of the most promising strategies to regenerate hair cells is to identify and inhibit the factors preventing the conversion of adjacent non-sensory supporting cells into hair cells. Here we demonstrate that mammalian hair cells can be directly generated from supporting cells by inhibition of ephrin-B2 signalling. Using either ephrin-B2 conditional knockout mice, shRNA-mediated gene silencing or soluble inhibitors, we found that downregulation of ephrin-B2 signalling at embryonic stages results in supporting cell translocation into hair cell layers and subsequent switch in cell identity from supporting cell to hair cell fate. As transdifferentiation is here a result of displacement across boundary, this original finding presents the interest that newly generated hair cells directly integrate either hair cell layer, then would be likely more rapidly able to fit into functional circuitry.

En esta presentación, se expusieron los hallazgos preliminares de una etnografía que analiza las prácticas a través de las cuales migrantes peruanas y colombianas en edad adulta, que se desempeñan como trabajadoras domésticas, negocian el acceso a una protección social informal con sus redes familiares transnacionales. En el análisis se teoriza sobre la construcción de un sistema de protección social informal transnacional que protege a dichas trabajadoras-migrantes, dada la ausencia de políticas públicas adecuadas. También, se determinan las desigualdades de género, clase y raza que son reproducidas a través de este contexto. Por último, se discutirá la posibilidad de crear políticas públicas trasnacionales en materia de protección social en la edad adulta que se adapten a las realidades de los hombres y mujeres que se movilizan de país a país en el mundo actual.

The contemporary university has to deal with an important pressure in order to adopt an operating and organisational system from the companies. The university is now encouraged to reconcile efficacy and financial viability goals in a competitive context between institutions. On the basis of a case study undertaken in a french--¿speaking Belgian university, we will think about the way dashboards and institutional reporting enable the university to respond to change injunctions, how they constitute a strategic management support, as well as the effects of their implementation in the administrative organisation. We will explain why Radius has been created at the university, its structure and how it works. We will see that its impact has been significant on the institution¿s staff. The creation of Radius, which aroused misgivings from administrations who have lost some of their prerogatives, reflects a shift of the administrative activity, whose part of the power is now concentrated in the hands of the authorities.

Objectives The last two years, clinical cases of tinea capitis caused by Microsporum audouinii (M. audouinii), have increased in Belgium. To better understand the emergence of this species in the population, the Belgian National Reference Center (NRC) for dermatophytes launched a national survey in 2013. Epidemiological aspects and genotypic characterization of the strains were included. Methods The study was conducted from March 2013 up to February 2014. All Belgian laboratories were asked to send M. audouinii strains isolated from hair to the NRC with a form to fill in including epidemiological informations. The fungal strains were identified by microscopy or ITS sequencing in case of doubt. The genotypic analysis was performed by the DiversiLab® system (bioMérieux) for DNA fingerprinting and analysis. Epidemiological informations were analyzed with the help of a biostatistician. Results Among the collected isolates, 97 strains have been currently confirmed as M. audouinii. Preliminary analysis of the epidemiological characteristics of the infected population shows that the main age category concerns 5-9 year-old children (84%) with a sex-ratio M/F of 1.95. Data concerning the geographic origin of the family have been obtained in only 45.8% of the cases. It reveals that strains have been mainly isolated from patients with a Belgian nationality (77%) suggesting bias in the data collection. The geographic origin of the remaining group (23%) includes several African countries. The genotypic analysis led to the distinction of 3 genotypic variants of M. audouinii. One of these variants was exclusively recovered from South Belgium (11 strains). The major group was composed of 85 strains, well distributed in different Belgium locations. The last group contains only one strain but this strain was significantly different from the two other variants. Conclusion The automated typing DiversiLab® system proved to be an easy and efficient method to investigate the molecular epidemiology of dermatophytes infections. These preliminary results show that, through Belgium, several groups of isolates co-exist for M. audouinii providing evidence of genetic heterogeneity. At this time all epidemiological informations have not yet been assessed while 35 strains of M. audouinii remain to be analysed genotypically to give definitive conclusions. [less ▲]

This study aimed to evaluate glycerol monooleate (GMO) as a carrier to develop viscoelastic and injectable sustained-release drug delivery systems. The potential pro- and antioxidant activity of the developed hydrolipidic gels were evaluated by measuring the production of ROS by polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNs). In addition, the biocompatibility and effectiveness of two selected gel candidates were evaluated in vivo by evaluating the benefit of a single intraarticular injection of these new treatments in a model of osteoarthritis in rabbits. The in vitro study demonstrated that the carrier F1 did not have a pro-oxidative effect and even protected PMNs against natural auto-activation, regardless of the incorporation of either clonidine chlorhydrate or betamethasone dipropionate. The in vivo study demonstrated that F1 and F1-BDP induced a loss of cartilage quality in comparison to the control and reference groups but that the lesions of cartilage observed were generally mild, with not much full-depth erosion. Moreover, no exacerbating inflammation was observed when considering the synovial membranes and the PGE2 and CRP levels. These results seemed to demonstrate that the sustained-release formulation based on GMO could be well-tolerated after intraarticular injection. Moreover, it could have the potential to prevent inflammatory conditions while sustaining drug activity locally over weeks. [less ▲]
