Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of death in Northern countries and needs a national screening program to reduce mortality and improve quality of life. Screening has to be cost-effective and acceptable for patients. Many screening tools, invasive or not, are existing and often debated: FOBT, sigmoidoscopy and complete colonoscopy. New tools are in development and have to be evaluated in current practice: virtual colonoscopy, new endoscopic technologies, DNA on faeces or proteomics with markers in serum. [less ▲]

Many large-scale Internet applications optimize their overlay network to reduce latencies. Embedding coordinate systems like Vivaldi are valuable tools for this new range of applications since they propose light-weight algorithms that permit to estimate the latency between any pair of nodes without having to contact them first. It has been recently demonstrated that coordinate systems in general and Vivaldi in particular are sensible to attacks. Typically, nodes can lie about their coordinate and distort the coordinate space. In this paper, we propose a formal reputation model to detect misbehaving nodes and propose a reputation adaptation of Vivaldi called RVivaldi. We evaluate the performance of RVivaldi using the King dataset and show that RVivaldi is less sensitive to malicious nodes than Vivaldi. [less ▲]

BACKGROUND: Thigmotropism is a biological characteristic corresponding to the directional growth of cells following topographical guidance cues. This behavior has been shown experimentally with fungal hyphae of both dermatophytes and nondermatophyte molds, as well as with the mycelial phase of the dimorphic yeast Candida albicans. OBJECTIVE AND METHODS: We presently document this phenomenon using histomycology in onychomycoses of various fungal origins. RESULTS: This mechanism is involved in the invasive phase of the pathogen or opportunistic fungi, and it probably governs various clinical aspects of onychomycoses. We incidentally disclosed fungal invasions of hydrogel pads. Conclusion: Thigmotropism can in part explain the diversity of orientations and shapes of fungi invading nail plates. The same phenomenon was disclosed inside hydrogel pads. As this material is transparent and easy to cut for microscopic examination, fungal thigmotropism is conveniently explored by this way.

Pregnancy diagnosis is an important part in reproduction management of ruminants. In the last years, a large polymorphic family of placenta-expressed proteins has been discovered in ruminant species and used for pregnancy diagnosis. Members of this family are named pregnancy-associated glycoproteins (PAG), being synthesized in the mono- and binucleate cells of the ruminant’s trophectoderm. Part of them are released in the maternal blood circulation where they can be assayed by different laboratory techniques. Due to large variety of expressed molecules and to large variations in the post-translational processing of the PAG, different immuno-systems present different ability to quantify the PAG released in blood. The sensitivity (92 to 100%) and specificity of PAG radioimmunoassay when used for pregnancy diagnosis are very high. The assay of PAG can also bring very interesting information for researchers working in programs focused on the study of embryonic and fetal mortalities, as well as on embryo biotechnology (ET, FIV, clonage), animal nutrition, or infections diseases resulting in pathologies affecting the pregnancy.

Chemotherapy is an essential component in the multidisciplinary management of many cancers. Skin reactions to chemotherapeutics are rather frequent, and their morbidity may be significant. It is wise to identify them with precision in order to chose the most adequate preventive and therapeutic measures. The dermatopathology assessment is helpful for the diagnostic. [less ▲]

After encoding, memory traces are initially fragile and have to be reinforced to become permanent. The initial steps of this process occur at a cellular level within minutes or hours. Besides this rapid synaptic consolidation, systems consolidation occurs within a time frame of days to years. For declarative memory, the latter is presumed to rely on an interaction between different brain regions, in particular the hippocampus and the medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC). Specifically, sleep has been proposed to provide a setting that supports such systems consolidation processes, leading to a transfer and perhaps transformation of memories. Using functional MRI, we show that postlearning sleep enhances hippocampal responses during recall of word pairs 48 h after learning, indicating intrahippocampal memory processing during sleep. At the same time, sleep induces a memory-related functional connectivity between the hippocampus and the mPFC. Six months after learning, memories activated the mPFC more strongly when they were encoded before sleep, showing that sleep leads to long-lasting changes in the representation of memories on a systems level.

Stratospheric ozone is an important constituent of the Earth's atmosphere since it protects the biosphere from the most harmful ultraviolet radiations emitted by the sun. Some human activiites such as the use of man-mande chlorofluorocarbons have resulted in major destruction of ozone, in particular in the polar regions of the stratosphere. The Montreal Protocol has been successful in limiting the emissions of ozone depleting substances such as the complete ozone recovery is expected to take place in 2050 over northern mid-latitudes.

The name scleroderma is given to a spectrum of diseases which differ clinically and bear different prognostic risks. The origins of the various forms of the disease are unclear. A toxic influence has been suggested, particularly for the progressive systemic scleroderma. However, the imputability of the suspected chemicals often remains unsettled. [less ▲]

A three-dimensional Earth system model of intermediate complexity including a dynamic ice sheet component has been used to investigate the long-term evolution of the Greenland ice sheet and its effects on the Atlantic meridional overturning circulation (AMOC) in response to a range of stabilized anthropogenic forcings. Our results suggest that the Greenland ice sheet volume should experience a significant decrease in the future. For a radiative forcing exceeding 7.5 W m(-2), the modeled ice sheet melts away within 3000 years. A number of feedbacks operate during this deglaciation, implying a strong nonlinear relationship between the radiative forcing and the melting rate. Only in the most extreme scenarios considered, the freshwater flux from Greenland into the surrounding oceans ( of ca. 0.1 Sv during a few centuries) induces a noticeable weakening of the AMOC in the model.

Stricturing subocclusive small bowel Crohn's disease (CD) is often an indication for surgery. We embarked on an open label pilot study to assess the safety and efficacy of infliximab in patients with stricturing subocclusive CD. Patients and methods : A cohort of patients with a documented and symptomatic small bowel stricture caused by CD was studied. Patients had to be refractory to corticosteroids and/or immunosuppressives, and not in need for immediate surgery. The patients were treated by a single infusion of infliximab 5 mg/kg and followed up at w1, w2, w4 and w8. Results : After the 6(th) patients, the study was prematurely discontinued because the predefined safety thresholds of more than 2 surgeries within the first 5 patients was reached. Only two patients completed the 8 weeks study, with a positive response to infliximab and improvement of inflammation confirmed by the CRP and CT scan. Two patients had to be operated early and the last two patients first did well but worsened after one month and were operated 35 and 42 days after infliximab, respectively. No surgical complications occurred in the 4 operated patients. In conclusion, a subset of patients with subocclusive small bowel stricturing CD may benefit from infliximab. [less ▲]
