Afin de relever les défis de ce nouveau millénaire, l’Europe a un besoin crucial de scientifiques et de techniciens hautement qualifiés. Pourquoi alors ne pas chercher les compétences requises dans le réservoir humain gigantesque que les jeunes filles constituent, réservoir trop souvent négligé à ce jour ? Attirer les jeunes filles vers les sciences exactes ou appliquées ? Tout un programme ! Onze récits de vie, onze manifestations d’enthousiasme. Qu’elles soient mathématicienne, géologue, astrophysicienne, physicienne, ingénieure, physicienne, chimiste ou virologue, les sciences comblent les aspirations professionnelles de ces femmes. Mais cet enthousiasme omniprésent, n’occulte-t-il pas les difficultés que les femmes scientifiques rencontrent encore actuellement pour prendre place dans le monde académique, un des derniers bastions de la suprématie masculine ?

This paper aims with the characterization of ceramic matrix composites for bearing applications in LOX. First, compatibility tests have been performed to assume the safety and feasibility of further research operations. Then tribology tests were made on a pin-on-disc apparatus using LOX as working environment. The measurement of friction and wear allowed a comparison between different kinds of CMC and steel 440C materials. As a logical approach, a real geometry test rig is now being built up. The design of a hybrid journal bearing has been finished and the manufacturing of the rig components started. [less ▲]

Traiter l'hypertension artérielle est très rentable en terme de réduction du risque cardiovasculaire pour autant que l'on normalise la pression artérielle. L'utilisation d'emblée d'associations de molécules de familles différentes mais à posologies très faibles vient d'être proposée par les nouvelles directives européennnes du traitement de l'hypertension. Ces associations très faiblement dosées tentent d'être rapidement efficaces chez un plus grand nombre d'hypertendus avec un minimum d'effets secondaires. Un rapport coût/efficacité faible en est un des avantages. [less ▲]

Objectives. Proximity of ureters with iliac arteries makes them prone to damage by aorto-iliac pathology or surgery. The aim of this retrospective study is to analyse the incidence, the predisposing factors, and the optimal treatment Of ureteral stenosis (US) or leakages (UL). Design. Retrospective study. Material. Fiftyone ureteral lesions in 41 patients referred to the urologist in a fourteen years period in the same institution. Methods. Lesions are classified in three groups: A, preoperative; B, less than 3 months postoperatively; and C, more than 3 months postoperatively. Group A comprises 10 abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) patients; eight of the AAA are of the inflammatory type. Group B comprises 16 patients, 11 US and 9 UL. Group C comprises 15 patients and 15 US. Results. Endoureteral treatment was successful in most of the group B patients. Some of them, however, had to be submitted to secondary open surgery, so that the global success rate is 70% in group B. In group C, the response is poor following endourological treatment alone (12.5% success) and open surgery is more often needed (3 ureterolyses and 1 nephrectomy). Global success rate is 40%. Conclusion. Early diagnosis is associated to better results with less invasive procedure, late diagnosis is accompanied by a lower success rate of endourological treatment and requires more often primary open surgery.

OBJECTIVE: Because sex hormones may be involved in tumor initiation and progression, we analyzed the presence of hormone receptors in the transformation zone of the uterine cervix where the majority of human papillomavirus infections and associated (pre)neoplastic lesions develop. STUDY DESIGN: By using 23 total hysterectomy samples from young women who underwent surgery for noncervical benign uterine disease, we analyzed, by immunohistologic techniques, the in situ expression of estrogen (E-2-R) and progesterone (P-4-R) receptors in the transformation zone and ectocervix of the same women. RESULTS: The expression of estrogen receptors and progesterone receptors is significantly higher in the transformation zone compared with the ectocervix. Immunohistochemical localization indicated that hormone receptor-positive cells are mainly observed in (para)basal and intermediate cell layers in both the transformation zone and ectocervical epithelium. When transformation zone samples were segregated into epithelial tissues with a predominantly mature (7/23 samples) or immature (16/23 samples) squamous metaplasia, only biopsy specimens with immature squamous metaplasia showed a significantly higher density of hormone receptor-positive cells compared with ectocervical epithelium (P < .01). CONCLUSION: Our results suggest that the cervical transformation zone may be at increased risk of the development of cancer because of a high sensitivity to sex hormone regulation.

The purpose of the study was to investigate the prevalence of gastric lesions and to provide diagnostic values for serum pepsinogen in non-infected pigs and in pigs with gastric disease. In an abattoir survey, the pepsinogen concentrations were measured in the serum from 62 non-infected pigs, 33 pigs with gastric lesions and 17 pigs infected with Hyostrongylus rubidus, using a specific radioimmunoassay (RIA). The mean (+/-SE) pepsinogen concentrations in the serum of non-infected pigs, in pigs with gastric ulcers, and in pigs with a heavy H. rubidus infection were 630.8 +/- 39.2 ng/ml, 1084.5 +/- 166.2 ng/ml and 1095.2 +/- 102.3 ng/ml, respectively (p < 0.05). Because of the higher concentrations of pepsinogen in the blood of pigs with gastric ulcers or parasitic infections, it is suggested that the measurement of serum pepsinogen by RIA may be an effective biochemical approach to the diagnosis of chronic gastric disorders in pigs.
