Mycophenolate mofetil is an important drug in the modern immunosuppressive arsenal. Mycophenolate mofetil is the semisynthetic morpholinoethyl ester of mycophenolate acid. Mycophenolate acid prevents T and B cell proliferation by specifically inhibiting a purine pathway required for lymphocyte division. This paper extensively reviews the experience of mycophenolate mofetil use in liver transplant recipients. In randomised trials, mycophenolate mofetil decreased the rate of acute rejection after liver transplantation, without a significant increase of septic complications. However, so far, there are no data indicating that mycophenolate mofetil increases liver transplant patient or graft survivals. Mycophenolate mofetil is interesting because of its particular side effects profile, which is very different from the other immunosuppressants. The absence of mycophenolate mofetil nephrotoxicity is of specific interest in liver recipients with impairment of renal function. The monitoring of mycophenolate acid area under the concentration time curve might be interesting to limit side effects and provide better clinical efficacy but the exact role of mycophenolate acid monitoring in liver recipients has yet to be further evaluated in large series.

X-ray microtomography is used to explore the textural evolution that soft materials undergo during a drying treatment. An original image processing algorithm is applied to vertical projections and reconstructed cross-section images in order to quantify the texture at different stages of drying. Measurements are performed both on grey-level and on binary images. It is shown that X-ray microtomography is a very promising tool in the field of drying investigations. It can be used to determine internal moisture profiles, and to follow crack development and shrinkage in an accurate and non-destructive way. This information is crucial to validate drying models. Waste-water sludges are used as test materials to assess the validity of the proposed methodology. The management of these sludges, often including a drying stage, will become a challenge in the forthcoming years in accordance with environmental regulations. Samples collected in two waste-water treatment plants are investigated. Their analysis by X-ray microtomography brings to the fore two different drying behaviours, illustrating that sludge drying is a complex unit operation very sensitive to the way the material is produced.

The Optical Monitoring Camera (OMC) will observe the optical emission from the prime targets of the gammaray instruments onboard the ESA mission INTEGRAL, with the support of the JEM-X monitor in the X-ray domain. This capability will provide invaluable diagnostic information on the nature and the physics of the sources over a broad wavelength range. Its main scientific objectives are: ( 1) to monitor the optical emission from the sources observed by the gamma- and X-ray instruments, measuring the time and intensity structure of the optical emission for comparison with variability at high energies, and ( 2) to provide the brightness and position of the optical counterpart of any gamma- or X-ray transient taking place within its field of view. The OMC is based on a refractive optics with an aperture of 50 mm focused onto a large format CCD (1024 x 2048 pixels) working in frame transfer mode (1024 x 1024 pixels imaging area). With a field of view of 5degrees x 5degrees it will be able to monitor sources down to magnitude V = 18. Typical observations will perform a sequence of different integration times, allowing for photometric uncertainties below 0.1 mag for objects with V less than or equal to 16. [less ▲]

Newborn colostrum-restricted calves were orally inoculated with an Escherichia coli strain, identified originally as non-pathogenic, and into which the plasmid pVir was conjugally transferred. This resulted in diarrhea, intestinal lesions and extra-intestinal invasion, suggesting that factors affecting these pathogenic properties are located on pVir. In order to analyze the respective roles of the toxins CNF2 and CDTIII in the pathogenesis, colostrum-restricted calves were inoculated with isogenic mutants in the cnf2 and the cdt-III genes. The loss of cnf2 is associated with a reduction in the pathogenicity, since diarrhea does not occur in calves challenged, in spite of successful colonization of the intestine. Nevertheless, the mutant strain remains able to invade the bloodstream and to localize in the internal organs. Conversely, the calves inoculated with mutant in the cdt-III gene evolved in the same way as wild-type strain-inoculated calves with regard to clinical signs and macroscopic or microscopic lesions.

In the embryonic day 19 organs of Corti, we showed that roscovitine, a chemical inhibitor of cyclin-dependent kinases (CDKs), significantly increased the number of hair cells (HCs) and corresponding supporting cells (SCs) by triggering differentiation of precursor cells without interacting with cell proliferation. The effect of roscovitine was mimicked by other CDK1, 2, 5, and 7 inhibitors but not by CDK4/6 and mitogen-activated protein kinase pathway antagonists. Immunohistochemical analysis indicated that roscovitine-specific intracellular targets, CDK1, 2, 5, and 7, were expressed in the organ of Corti and especially in Hensen's cells. Affinity chromatography studies showed a tight correlation between the protein levels of CDK1/2 and 5 and the rate of roscovitine-induced supernumerary cells in the organ of Corti. In addition, we demonstrated that basal CDK activity was higher and more roscovitine-sensitive at developmental stages that are selectively permissive for the emergence of supernumerary cells. These results suggest that CDKs are involved in the normal development of the organ of Corti and that, at least in E19 embryos, inhibition of CDKs is sufficient to trigger the differentiation of HCs and corresponding SCs, presumably from the Hensen's cell progenitors and/or from progenitors located in the greater epithelial ridge area.

New radiative lifetimes for 20 levels of Pr II have been measured using the time-resolved laser-induced fluorescence (LIF) technique. The combination of these experimental values with theoretical branching fractions (BF) obtained with the pseudo-relativistic Hartree-Fock (HFR) approach has allowed us to determine oscillator strengths and transition probabilities for about 150 lines appearing in the spectral region between 369.9 and 741.2 nm. A detailed discussion of our new results and comparisons with previous data are also given in the present paper. [less ▲]
