BACKGROUND: Research indicates that maintaining contact either via letter or postcard with at-risk adults following discharge from care services after a suicide attempt (SA) can reduce reattempt risk. Pilot studies have demonstrated that interventions using mobile health (mHealth) technologies are feasible in a suicide prevention setting. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to report three cases of patients recruited in the Suicide Intervention Assisted by Messages (SIAM) study to describe how a mobile intervention may influence follow-up...

This is a case report about a 54-year-old man with hypovolemic shock, due to diarrhea and major vomiting after his return from India. The isolation of Vibrio cholerae serogroup O1 (Ogawa serotype) explains this typical clinical presentation of cholera, seen in 10% of cholera cases only. The patient had co-infection with Vibrio cholerae and Campylobacter coli. Co-infections appear to be frequent in endemic areas. The purpose of this case report is to recall the relevance of Vibrio isolation when the clinical context is evocative (diarrhea on travel return, raw sea food consumption)...

The decision of November 6th, 2006 defining the principles of best practices recommends that posttransfusional red cell alloantibodies research is performed after one to three months after. In the University hospital of Brest, the haemovigilance unit takes charge of sending the medical prescription within the required time and centralizing the results. We wished to estimate if the realization of this research still remains relevant. METHODS: A prospective analysis was performed in 2015...

A crossdated, replicated, chronology of 114 years (1901-2014) was developed from internal growth increments in the shells of Glycymeris glycymeris samples collected monthly from the Bay of Brest, France. Bivalve sampling was undertaken between 2014 and 2015 using a dredge. In total 401 live specimens and 243 articulated paired valves from dead specimens were collected, of which 38 individuals were used to build the chronology. Chronology strength, assessed as the Expressed Population Signal, was above 0.7 throughout, falling below the generally accepted threshold of 0...

MicroRNAs (miRs) participate in tumor growth and dissemination by regulating expression of various target genes. MiR-223-3p is suspected of being involved in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) growth although its precise role has not been elucidated. In this study, we showed that miR-223-3p is present in biopsies of HNSCC patients and that its presence is correlated with high neutrophil infiltrate. We found that overexpression of miR-223-3p slightly increased proliferation of the CAL27 squamous carcinoma cell line both in vitro and in vivo...

ABC transporters activity and expression have been associated with the multixenobiotic resistance phenotype (MXR). The activity of these proteins leads to a reduction in the intracellular concentration of several xenobiotics, thus reducing their toxicity. However, little attention has been given to the expression of ABC transporters in marine invertebrates and few studies have investigated their role in immune system cells of sea urchins and shellfish bivalves. The aim of the present study was to investigate the activity of the ABC transporters ABCB1 and ABCC1 in immune system cells of sea urchins (coelomocytes) and oysters (hemocytes) from different climatic regions (Brazil and France)...

Pneumocystis jirovecii is a transmissible fungus with a high pulmonary tropism. The prevalence of P. jirovecii in patients with cystic fibrosis (CF) has been estimated in Germany at 7.4%, in Spain at 21.5% and in Brazil at 38.2%. Data on the prevalence of P. jirovecii in CF patients in France remain scarce, particularly in Brittany, where the prevalence of CF is high (from 1/1600 to 1/4500). Our objectives were to determine the prevalence of colonization of the airways by P. jirovecii in Brittany in CF patients monitored at the "Centre de Ressources et de Compétences de la Mucoviscidose (CRCM)" of Rennes compared to that previously observed at the CRCM of Roscoff-Brest...

BACKGROUND: The umbilical coiling index (UCI) is a measure of the number of coils in the umbilical cord in relation to its length. Hypercoiled cords with a UCI of >0.3 coils/cm have been associated with adverse fetal and neonatal outcomes. AIMS: The primary aim is to determine the accuracy of UCI measured on second trimester ultrasound in predicting UCI at birth. The secondary outcome is to investigate the association between hypercoiling of the umbilical cord on prenatal ultrasound and adverse maternal, fetal and neonatal outcomes...

In line with studies that question the conventional dichotomies between "head" and "hand," this article analyzes the emergence of a mixed naval culture, between science and technology, during the French Enlightenment. The case at issue is that of the circuitous development of an anchor proof testing protocol, an important method in the competition for maritime supremacy used at least until the first third of the nineteenth century. The story begins in the dockyard of Brest with a humble boatswain, and continues with the dissemination of his experiments thanks to prominent figures of the Naval Academy of Brest and of the Royal Academy of Sciences of Paris...

Breast cancer is the most common cancer among tunisian women and worldwide. In Cape Bon, Tunisia, the anatomopathological features of this cancer have not been established in previously published studies. Knowledge about these features is needed for the cultural adaptation of prevention and health care systems in the region. The aim of our study was to determine the pathological profile of breast cancers in the only public health anatomic pathology regional laboratory. We conducted a retrospective descriptive study of 116 patients who were diagnosed with breast cancers in our laboratory over a 5-year period, from July 2010 to July 2015...

Coastal waters corresponding to macrotidal systems are among the most variable marine biotopes. Sessile animals as bivalve mollusks may however be found forming intertidal beds at high densities, as allowed by full adaptation to local conditions. A better knowledge of adaptive responses to environmental factors is required to foresee possible adverse effects of global change. At the sub-cellular level, transcriptional responses are among the earliest signals of environmental disturbances and they can reveal subtle and meaningful changes in organism exposed to stress...

The concentration and spatial distribution of microplastics in the Bay of Brest (Brittany, France) was investigated in two surveys. Surface water and sediment were sampled at nine locations in areas characterized by contrasting anthropic pressures, riverine influences or water mixing. Microplastics were categorized by their polymer type and size class. Microplastic contamination in surface water and sediment was dominated by polyethylene fragments (PE, 53-67%) followed by polypropylene (PP, 16-30%) and polystyrene (PS, 16-17%) microparticles...

The scarcity of natural aggregates promotes waste reuse as secondary raw material in the field of civil engineering. This article focuses on the beneficial reuse of marine-dredged sediments in road building. Thus, mixtures of raw sediments and dredged sand collected from Brest Harbur (Bretagne, France) were treated with road hydraulic binders. Formulation were prepared and characterized as recommended by the French Technical Guidelines for soil treatment with lime and/or hydraulic binders. Mechanical resistance results are quite similar for both the hydraulic binders, suggesting a similar reactivity with the studied sediment sample...

The king scallop Pecten maximus is a high valuable species of great interest in Europe for both fishery and aquaculture. Notably, there has been an increased investment to produce seed for enhancement programmes of wild scallop populations. However, hatchery production is a relatively new industry and it is still underdeveloped. Major hurdles are spawning control and gamete quality. In the present study, a total of 14 scallops were sampled in the bay of Brest (Brittany, France) to compare transcriptomic profiles of mature oocytes collected by spawning induction or by stripping...

King scallop contamination (Pecten maximus) by domoic acid, a neurotoxin produced by some species of the diatom Pseudo-nitzschia, is highly problematic because of its lengthy retention in the bivalve tissue, leading to prolonged fishery closures. Data collected within the French Phytoplankton and Phycotoxin monitoring network (REPHY) over the 1995-2012 period were used to characterize the seasonal dynamics and the interannual variability of P.-nitzschia spp. blooms as well as the contamination of king scallop fishing grounds, in six contrasted bays distributed along the French Atlantic coast and English Channel...
