Background: In the context of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT), mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) have been used to promote engraftment and prevent graft- versus-host-disease. However, in animal models, MSC were shown to cause pulmonary alterations after systemic administration. The impact of MSC infusion on lung function has not been studied in humans. The objective of the study was to investigate the impact of MSC co-infusion on lung function and airway inflammation as well as on the incidence of pulmonary infections and cytomegalovirus (CMV) reactivation after HSCT. Methods: We have prospectively followed 30 patients who underwent unrelated HSCT with MSC co-infusion after non-myeloablative conditioning (NMA). Each patient underwent detailed lung function testing (FEV1, FVC, FEV1/FVC, RV, TLC, DLCO and KCO) and measurement of exhaled nitric oxide before HSCT and 3, 6 and 12 months posttransplant. The incidence of pulmonary infections and CMV reactivation were also monitored. This group was compared with another group of 28 patients who underwent the same type of transplantation but without MSC co-infusion. Results: Lung function tests did not show important modifications over time and did not differ between the MSC and control groups. There was a higher 1-year incidence of infection, particularly of fungal infections, in patients having received a MSC co-infusion. There was no difference between groups regarding the 1-year incidence of CMV reactivation. Conclusions: MSC co-infusion does not induce pulmonary deterioration 1 year after HSCT with NMA conditioning. MSC appear to be safe for the lung but close monitoring of pulmonary infections remains essential. [less ▲]

We conducted a prospective randomized trial to assess hemoglobin (Hb) response to recombinant human erythropoietin (rhEPO) therapy after hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT). Patients (n=131) were randomized (1:1) between no treatment (control arm) or erythropoietin (Neorecormon®) at 500 U/kg/week (EPO arm). Patients were also stratified in 3 cohorts: patients undergoing myeloablative HCT with rhEPO to start on day 28, patients given nonmyeloablative HCT (NMHCT) with rhEPO to start on day 28, and patients also given NMHCT but with rhEPO to start on day 0. The proportion of complete correctors (i.e. achieving Hb ≥ 13 g/dL) before day 126 post-transplant (primary endpoint) was 8.1% in the control arm (median not reached) and 63.1% in the EPO arm (median time 90 days) (p<0.001). Hb levels were higher and transfusions requirements decreased (p<0.001) in the EPO arm, but not during the first month in the nonmyeloablative cohort starting rhEPO on day 0. There was no difference in rates of thrombo-embolic events or other complications between the 2 arms. This is the first randomized trial to demonstrate that rhEPO therapy hastens erythroid recovery and decreases transfusion requirements when started one month after allogeneic HCT. There was no benefit to start rhEPO earlier after NMHCT. [less ▲]

In the context of the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions caused by deforestation and forest degradation (the REDD+ program), optical very high resolution (VHR) satellite images provide an opportunity to characterize forest canopy structure and to quantify aboveground biomass (AGB) at less expense than methods based on airborne remote sensing data. Among the methods for processing these VHR images, Fourier textural ordination (FOTO) presents a good potential to detect forest canopy structural heterogeneity and therefore to predict AGB variations. Notably, the method does not saturate at intermediate AGB values as do pixelwise processing of available space borne optical and radar signals. However, a regional scale application requires to overcome two difficulties: (i) instrumental effects due to variations in sun-scene-sensor geometry or sensor-specific responses that preclude the use of wide arrays of images acquired under heterogeneous conditions and (ii) forest structural diversity including monodominant or open canopy forests, which are of particular importance in Central Africa. In this study, we demonstrate the feasibility of a rigorous regional study of canopy texture by harmonizing FOTO indices of images acquired from two different sensors (Geoeye-1 and QuickBird-2) and different sun-scene-sensor geometries and by calibrating a piecewise biomass inversion model using 26 inventory plots (1 ha) sampled across very heterogeneous forest types. A good agreement was found between observed and predicted AGB (RSE=15%; R²=0.85; p-value<0.001) across a wide range of AGB levels from 26 Mg/ha to 460 Mg/ha, and was confirmed by cross validation. A high-resolution biomass map (100 m pixels) was produced for a 400 km² area, and predictions obtained from both imagery sources were consistent with each other (r=0.86; slope=1.03; intercept=12.01 Mg/ha). These results highlight the horizontal structure of forest canopy as a powerful descriptor of the entire forest stand structure and heterogeneity. In particular, we show that quantitative metrics resulting from such textural analysis offer new opportunities to characterize the spatial and temporal variation of the structure of dense forests and may complement the toolbox used by tropical forest ecologists, managers or REDD+ national monitoring, reporting and verification bodies.

Purpose. The purpose of this study is to examine the effect of institutional investors ownership and activism on information asymmetry and stock market liquidity in France. Design/methodology/approach. Our sample includes 162 French-listed firms over a period ranging from 2007 to 2009. Our methodology relies on linear regressions using the method of ordinary least square(OLS). Befor examining the interaction between liquidity and institutional investors, we check for the existence of the endogeneity problem by applying the Durbin-Wu_Hausman test of Davidson and MacKinnon (1993). The results of the endogeneity test show that institutional investor ownership and stock liquidity are endogenous. A simultaneous equation model using the second least square method is then tested to address this problem. Findings The findings show that the proportion of institutional investors has a positive and significant effect on stock-market liquidity, which confirms the signal theory and trading hypothesis. These investors perform high trading activity which favourably affect market liquidity. The results suggests that pension funds manage huge assets decreasing transaction costs and improving liquidity. They display a positive signal to the market about more transparency and a low level of information asymmetry.These results highlight the institutional investors'role in defining the level of liquidity of assets on the French market. Our findings also stress the importance of developing institutional investors'demand for the Paris market in order to better assess firms'values, protect minority ownership and improve market liquidity. Originality/Value In the French institutional setting, institutional investors act as a control device since minority shareholder interests are less protected than in Anglo-American counterparts. This result highlights the significant rôle of institional investors in corporate governance structures and a finacila markets. Their prsence is a guarantee for minority interest protection and for improving market liquidity. [less ▲]
