We present a method to evaluate the pion structure functions from a box diagram calculation. Pion and constituent quark fields are coupled through the simplest pseudoscalar coupling. The gamma^* pi -> q \bar q cross-section is evaluated and related to the structure functions. We then show that the introduction of non-perturbative effects, related to the pion size and preserving gauge invariance, provides us with a straighforward relation with the quark distribution. It is predicted that higher-twist terms become negligible for Q^2 larger than about 2 GeV^2 and that quarks in the pion have a momentum fraction smaller than in the proton. We enlarge the discussion concerning this violation of the momentum sum rule, emphasizing that the sum rule is recovered in the chiral limit and also when the finite size condition is not imposed.

Afin d'étudier l'influence de l'hydrodynamique sur une bactérie filamenteuse, Actinomadura R39, nous l'avons cultivée dans un fermenteur de laboratoire de 5 litres à cuve agitée en faisant varier les conditions d'agitation. Les variables sont la vitesse de rotation et le type de mobile utilisé: turbines Rushton ou Intermig. Les deux mobiles se distinguent par leur géométrie et par les schémas d'écoulement qu'ils induisent dans la cuve. L'influence de l'hydrodynamique sur Actinomadura R39 est quantifiée par l'évolution de sa morphologie. Cette dernière est estimée par analyse d'images sur des échantillons prélevés lors des cultures. Parallèlement, nous avons caractérisé l'hydrodynamique du fermenteur dans un milieu artificiel reproduisant la rhéologie des fermentations en mesurant la puissance dissipée et en effectuant des essais de traceurs. Ces derniers sont utilisés pour la modélisation du fermenteur par un modèle compartimenté et le calcul du temps de mélange. Nous avons pu ainsi mettre en relation les modifications de la morphologie et des grandeurs caractérisant les écoulements dans le fermenteur. L'existence de corrélations entre les paramètres du modèle et la morphologie a également permis une validation de la signification physique de ce modèle. [less ▲]

PET and PET-CT in Oncology describes the principles of positron emission tomography and is a useful resource for incorporating the technique in clinical practice. In a clear and straightforward fashion, this heavily-illustrated text offers instructive information and overviews of the basic principles of PET and PET-CT as well as the routine clinical PET scanning procedures for all important oncological indications. It is designed to serve as a reference work for specialists in nuclear medicine and radiology (including therapy planning) and for oncologists. It also provides student and physicians in other medical specialities with a general introduction to the effective integration of this modern technique into routine clinical diagnostics. Above all, this volume illustrates the importance of PET and PET-CT in comparison with other imaging techniques. [less ▲]

PURPOSE. To identify modifications in the gene expression profile of the ocular posterior segment in ovariectomized (OVX) mice with and without substitutive estradiol therapy and to select differentially expressed genes that could be relevant to the natural history of human age-related macular degeneration (AMD). METHODS. Chorioretinal tissues from two groups of 25 treated and untreated OVX mice were analyzed by using cDNA array technology. The expression level of selected genes was confirmed in triplicate by RT-PCR and related to the estrogenic status of the animals. Expression of the YKL-40 gene was further investigated in intact or diseased human retinas and in a murine model of experimental choroidal neovascularization (CNV), using laser pressure catapulting. RESULTS. Of the approximately, 10,000 genes screened, only YKL-40 expression was significantly downregulated by 17-beta-estradiol. YKL-40 was expressed in intact human neural retina and in the RPE. The expression of YKL-40 was upregulated in experimental CNV and in neovascular membranes extracted from patients affected by the exudative form of AMD. CONCLUSIONS. These observations indicate that YKL-40 expression in the retina is modulated by serum levels of estradiol. This protein could be relevant to the development of AMD and is also a new mediator to take into account when evaluating the broad consequences of hormonal replacement therapy. [less ▲]

BACKGROUND: The precise pathomechanism of rosacea remains elusive. The disease commonly requires long-term treatments using topical or oral therapies. OBJECTIVE: This report presents incidental findings about the possible modulatory role of somatostatin in the outcome of rosacea. METHOD: Four patients presenting long-standing recalcitrant facial rosacea were treated with octreotide for diabetic retinopathy. RESULTS: Rosacea improved rapidly and even cleared without any recurrence in 3 of the patients. CONCLUSION: The beneficial effect might be attributed to inhibitory actions on the sebaceous gland, the neovascularization and/or on the inflammatory process. [less ▲]

Several studies have demonstrated that the emotional value of stimuli affects P300 amplitude. In the present study, the influence of alcohol-related stimuli in alcoholic patients was investigated. Subjects were 10 alcoholic inpatients (3 female) and 10 age- and sex-matched controls. Eight alcohol-related and 8 neutral words served as stimuli in a visual oddball paradigm. Acohol-related words were targets (48 stimuli, 33%) and neutral words were standard stimuli (96 stimuli, 66%). Results showed that P300 amplitude for targets did not differ significantly between the two groups. However, P300 latency for targets as well as reaction time were significantly shorter in male alcoholic patients. In contrast, P300 latency was increased in female alcoholic patients but reaction time did not differ. These results suggest that male alcoholics process information linked to alcohol cues more rapidly than neutral cues, probably because a specific semantic network is activated in these patients. The decreased reaction time confirms the impulsive behavior frequently found in male alcoholism, as it has been described in type II alcoholism. Besides, the results imply that information processing was delayed in female alcoholic patients. Therefore this study demonstrates a gender-dependent impact of alcohol-related stimuli on information processing. [less ▲]

A l’occasion du troisième Forum mondial de l’eau (WWF-3), qui se tient à Kyoto, au Japon, du 16 au 23 mars 2003, l’Organisation des Nations Unies pour l’alimentation et l’agriculture (FAO) présente un panorama des thèmes prioritaires que doivent aborder les responsables agricoles du monde entier en matière de mise en valeur des eaux en agriculture, et plus généralement de leurs répercussions sur la gestion des ressources en eau. La FAO a inscrit sa participation aux débats du WWF-3 de Kyoto sous le mot d’ordre «déverrouiller le potentiel de l’eau en agriculture». En effet, tous les renseignements statistiques confirment que l’agriculture est le secteur clé de la gestion de l’eau, pour le présent comme pour les décennies à venir. Pourtant, le secteur de la mise en valeur rurale des eaux se voit actuellement refuser un statut prioritaire dans les forums internationaux, par comparaison avec d’autres domaines concurrents. Il manque pour l’heure aux acteurs qui soutiennent ce secteur une stratégie valide et une présentation valorisante qui leur permettraient de maintenir l’attention sur ces questions. Des arguments nouveaux et puissants sont nécessaires pour remettre la mise en valeur rurale des eaux sur les rails. [less ▲]

An on going project whose goal is the development and identification of a mathematical model of steel at elevated temperature using a mesoscopic approach is presented. The research aims to study the damage process at elevated temperature using information from the macroscopic and mesoscopic scales. As a final application our results will be used to study the industrial process of continuous casting of low carbon steel. [less ▲]
