During a 2-month mission in Southeast Asia, including numerous stopovers in coastal cities, the crew of a frigate of the French Navy received doxycycline for antimalarial prophylaxis. Adherence to this chemoprophylaxis was evaluated with an anonymous questionnaire distributed at the end of the malaria exposure period. The response rate was 74% (72 crew members). Among them, 67 sailors felt they had received clear information about the risks of malaria. Overall, 19 (27%) respondents reported adherence (one forgotten pill, by no more than 15 days), 18 (25%) irregular adherence (one or more pills forgotten weekly or stopped during the mission), and 35 recognized that they had not taken the treatment. These results, in the light of recent international recommendations, suggest that strategies for the prevention of malaria without systematic use of chemoprophylaxis (personal vector protection measures, an “Army posture” strategy), would be more suitable for medicalized ships cruising in this area. © 2017 John Libbey Eurotext.

Background: Viperidae bites represent a public health issue in Africa and are responsible for a hemorrhagic syndrome with fatal outcome in the short term. A research on Medline database does not reveal any data definitively demonstrating the efficiency of antivenom in case of delayed administration. The aim of this study, based on a 12-year survey of viperine syndromes in Republic of Djibouti, was to compare the normalization of the hemostasis disorders with an early administration of antivenin versus a delayed administration. Methods: A retrospective study was conducted from October 1994 to May 2006 in the intensive care unit of the French military Hospital, in Djibouti. Seventy-three Viperidae-envenomed patients were included. Antivenin efficiency in correcting hemostatic disorders was analyzed in relation to time to treatment (before or after the 24th hour after the bite). Results: Forty-two patients (58%) presented with bleeding. A consumptive coagulopathy was found in 68 patients (93%). Antivenin was observed to be effective in improving hemostasis, and the time to normalization of biologic parameters was similar, whether the treatment was started before or after the 24th hour after the bite. Conclusion: Antivenin should ideally be administered as early as possible. However, in Africa, time to treatment generally exceeds 24 hours. The results of the present evidence-based study confirm an empirical concept: a delayed time to treatment should in no way counterindicate the use of antivenin immunotherapy, in the case of African Viperidae bites. © 2011 Elsevier Inc.

Aim: When self-employed and small business owners are diagnosed with cancer what is the effect on their small-firm survival duration? Methods: Data Sources: secondary data for 3,587 subjects, 18-65 years, working when diagnosed with cancer in 1995-2009 and a comparison group of 27,688 subjects matched for gender, age and occupation. Study design: a comprehensive population-based longitudinal study. A Cox model described time to failures of small businesses and terminations of self-employment. Data Collection Methods: extraction from the statutory mandatory self-employed social security scheme database. Results: Findings were that age, cancer prognosis and very intense physical workload occupation were independent predictors of enterprise failure for cancer-exposed subjects. Compared with unexposed subjects, their global hazard ratio was 1.59 (95% CI = 1.50-1.70). However, the difference at five years after cancer diagnosis became non-significant: hazard ratio 1.11 (95% CI = 0.95-1.30). Conclusion: These findings demonstrate that beyond 5 years of maintenance of activity, the economic cost of cancer supported by very small businesses and self-employed is not important. However, support is required to pass through these first 5 years. The authors describe the various possible aids that could be implemented. © S.F.S.P.. Tous droits réservés pour tous pays.

Teenager sexuality is a public health issue. In teenagers attending a high school, we assessed their knowledge and behavior on sexuality, infectious transmitted diseases, human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccination, and cervical cancer. Then in girls, we estimated the anti-HPV vaccination coverage and focused on factors associated with poor knowledge of these topics. Methods: This was a knowledge, attitudes, and practices cross-sectional study conducted at the beginning of the 2010-2011 school year in the Saint-Cyr military high school, using an anonymous self-administered questionnaire. Results: Among 669 adolescents (M/F sex-ratio, 2.3; mean age, 17 years [IC 95%, 15-20]), 40% had already had sex and 92% had used contraception. Boys and girls had a poor level of knowledge on infectious transmitted diseases. Regarding knowledge on HPV and cervical cancer, a better level was significantly associated with female gender (P=10-4). In multivariate analysis, male gender, age under 18 years, lack of dialogue with parents on these subjects, low socioeconomic status of parents, and absence of health education were significantly associated with poor knowledge on these topics. Conclusion: These data should help healthcare providers better target access and content of sexual health education training. © 2013 Elsevier Masson SAS.

Human Health Toxicity Values (HHTV) quantify the relationship between exposure to a chemical substance and effects on health. HHTVs are therefore key parameters for making calculations and assessing health risks. Many institutions offer HHTVs in databases on the Internet. Since 2004, France has initiated a process for the development of her own HHTVs. The search and the choice of HHTVs are complex and time-consuming. The French Institute for Public Health Surveillance (InVS) has developed an efficient search engine with free Internet access. Furêtox (facilitating the use of resources in toxicology) is designed to extend the scope and shorten the time of search on the Web. For a given chemical substance, Furêtox can provide swift access to the HHTVs, allow easy access to background documents with details on how the values were established and swift access to carcinogenicity classifications. Furêtox welcomes critical feedback from users and provides references ("fact sheets" for each database) on the methodology used to calculate the values. © 2012 Publié par Elsevier Masson SAS.

Introduction.- The aim of this study was to evaluate the evolution from 2006 to 2010 of the prevalence of continuous positive airway pressure treatment for the beneficiaries of two regional health care insurance funds (17 and 43). Methods.- One million forty-eight thousand four hundred and thirty beneficiary-years were analyzed from 2006 to 2010. The prevalence of continuous positive airway pressure treatment was tested with regard to the effect of the year of delivery. A logit regression was used to adjust for potentially confounding differences in age and gender, which were included as covariates. The prevalence of alternative treatments and of controls of reimbursement benefits implemented by the funds are evaluated too during the same period. Results.- Continuous positive airway pressure treatment annual prevalence was 6.34/1000. A significant annual increase of prevalence from 2006 to 2008 was followed by a slowing of the rate of growth starting from 2008. In the same time for fund 43, obesity surgery rose from 41.85/100,000 to 55.44/100,000 and mandibular osteotomy surgery rose from 0.97/100,000 to 4.78/100,000. For fund 17 mandibular advancement devices rose from 10.72/100,000 to 21,08/100,000. The two funds started a reinforced inspections of reimbursement benefits for continuous positive airway pressure treatment in 2008. Conclusions.- The dynamics of continuous positive airway pressure treatment have to be considered in the context of policies introduced and trends in the application of alternative treatments in each fund. © 2012 SPLF.

Purpose: The French government plans to install MRI facilities dedicated to musculoskeletal indications. We have analyzed the use of imaging investigations in the community to assess their market share. Materials and methods: We undertook a retrospective analysis of all reimbursements during the year 2012 by the French Social Plan for Independent Workers for 4 imaging methods for a musculoskeletal indication (MRI, CT scan with or without opacification and contrast-enhanced conventional radiography). Results: Three hundred and thirty-two thousand eight hundred and ninety-three beneficiaries were included. The following investigations were used: MRI 12659 investigations; CT scan without direct opacification 7392; CT scan with direct opacification 1271; contrast-enhanced conventional radiography 1187. Of those beneficiaries who underwent investigations of the spine, 39.91% had MRI alone, 8.62% had both MRI and one of the other investigations and 51.46% did not have MRI. The corresponding figures for beneficiaries undergoing lower limb investigations were 79.57%, 4.53% and 15.90% and those for beneficiaries undergoing upper limb investigations were 35.49%, 6.56% and 57.94% respectively. Conclusion: In terms of the numbers of investigations, our results show that in France MRI dedicated to musculoskeletal indications has a wide market share for the spine, upper and lower limbs. © 2014 Éditions françaises de radiologie.
