We use AC-susceptibility measurements to study the dynamic response of vortices in a Pb thin film with a periodic array of antidots. In the linear regime, from the field dependence of the AC-penetration depth lambda we determine the curvature of the pinning potential well alpha for different matching fields. For applied fields H below the first matching field H-1, alpha reaches its highest value due to the strong vortex localization at the pinning sites. For H-1 < H < H-2, the metallic-like behavior of interstitial vortices gives rise to a reduction of alpha and a further decrease of the pinning strength is observed for H-2 < H < H-3. However, for H-3 < H < H-4, a reentrance in the pinning strength appears, due to a specific configuration of the flux line lattice which strongly restricts the mobility of vortices. [less ▲]

We investigate the dynamic response of a vortex lattice in nanostructured superconducting Pb films by means of ac-magnetization measurements. We compare the flux pinning properties of superconducting Pb films with arrays of fully perforated holes (antidots) and partially drilled holes (blind holes). Our results show that an array of blind holes, characterized by a thin superconducting bottom layer, gives rise to a less efficient pinning potential than an array of antidots. On top of that, a lower number of flux quanta trapped per pinning site (the saturation number), is observed for the blind hole array. (C) 2004 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. [less ▲]

Chez le cheval, la cause de la fièvre peut être de nature infectieuse (le plus souvent), néoplasique, inflammatoire ou immune. En pratique, pour localiser le trouble et en déterminer la nature, le vétérinaire aborde un animal souffrant de fièvre en cinq étapes successives : anamnèse ; examen général ; examen clinique approfondi du ou des systèmes qui semblent affectés ; examens cliniques complémentaires ; examens complémentaires de laboratoire.

A 3-D hydrodynamic model is applied to assess shelf/slope exchanges in the Calvi Canyon region (Corsica, NW Mediterranean) during the violent storm that affected the Western Europe in December 1999. Simulations are carried out using high-frequency sampling meteorological data to take into account the short-term variability of the atmospheric conditions. It is shown that the combined effects of canyon topography and of the wind forcing during the storm are responsible for a large increase of both cross-shore and vertical transports in the area. Strong downwelling motion is simulated all along the continental slope with vertical velocities up to 2cm s(-1) within the canyon. High turbulent diffusion levels are obtained leading to the complete mixing of the water column within the canyon. Results suggest that increased turbulent diffusion and downwelling circulation in the canyon during the storm should result in a large transport of coastal water towards the abyssal plain.

Many species of newts and salamanders forage in both terrestrial and aquatic environments during their life. However, the relative benefits of the two foraging patterns remain unknown because all previous studies have focused on only one habitat. The aim of this study was to find out which foraging tactic is the most successful in terms of energy intake. To this end, I analyzed trophic habits in metamorphosed juveniles in the Alpine newt, Triturus alpestris veluchiensis, inhabiting an alpine lake (Drakolimni) and the surrounding lands (Tymphi Mountains, northern Greece). The diet of the newts reflected the range of prey available in the two habitats, but aquatic newts also foraged on invertebrates that fell on the water surface. The two lifestyles have different energy outcomes. Terrestrial invertebrates provided high energy gains mainly to terrestrial juveniles because of the low number of this prey type in the lake. However, terrestrial juveniles are expected to suffer higher mortality (freezing on land is more probable than in deep waters) and a lower energy intake when air temperature is low, i.e., the main pattern in high-elevation sites, except during mid-summer. Persistence of the aquatic foraging tactics in the population may depend on a trade-off between costs and benefits. [less ▲]

Several species of kingfisher occur on Lake Nokoué, southern Bénin, including Malachite (Alcedo cristata) and Pied Kingfishers (Ceryle rudis). Here, we compare their diet and estimate the degree of overlap in food niche by analysing contents of regurgitated pellets collected near nesting sites of Pied Kingfishers or inside the nest chambers of Malachite Kingfishers. Characteristic fish skull bones were identified using a reference collection of local fish skeletons. Malachite Kingfishers feed most frequently on fish that occur around floating vegetation, mainly Kribia sp. (56%), Hemichromis fasciatus (28%) and Sarotherodon melanotheron (8%). Important differences were found between different pairs, and between adults and nestlings, the latter being fed almost exclusively on Kribia sp. Larger fish are fed to nestlings than are eaten by the adults. Pied Kingfishers prey upon 14 different fish species, some of them being caught in the pelagic region of the lake, particularly clupeids taken by hovering. By comparison with Malachite Kingfishers, Pied Kingfishers feed on a wider diversity of prey, and take larger fish, so that the dietary overlap between the species is relatively low (O = 0.181).

In vitro, strontium ranelate increases collagen and non-collagenic protein synthesis by mature osteoblast-enriched cells. The effects of strontium ranelate on bone formation were confirmed as the drug enhanced preosteoblastic cell replication. In the isolated osteoclast, a preincubation of bone slices with strontium ranelate induced a dose-dependent inhibition of the bone resorbing activity of treated rat osteoclast. Strontium ranelate dose-dependently inhibited preosteoclast differentiation. The drug was administered in 160 early postmenopausal women, in a 24-month, double-blind, placebo-controlled, prospective randomised study. At the conclusion of the study, the percentage variation of lumbar bone mineral density (BMD) from baseline was significantly different in the group receiving strontium ranelate 1000 mg/day as compared with placebo (+5.53 versus -0.75%, respectively). Increase in total hip and neck BMD averages were 3.2 and 2.5%, respectively. The effect of strontium ranelate in postmenopausal women with established osteoporosis was assessed during a multinational, prospective, double-blind, randomised, placebo-controlled trial. Strontium ranelate (500, 1000, 2000 mg/day) or placebo were given to 353 Caucasian women with prevalent vertebral osteoporosis. At the conclusion of this 2-year study, the annual increase in lumbar BMD of the group receiving strontium ranelate 2000 mg was 7.3% (p < 0.001). A significant increase in bone alkaline phophatase (p = 0.002) over a 6-month period and a significant decrease in N-telopeptide crosslinks (p = 0.004) throughout the 2-year period were seen in the group receiving 2000 mg of strontium ranelate. During the second year of treatment, the dose of 2000 mg was associated with a 44% reduction in the number of patients experiencing a new vertebral deformity. Bone histomorphometry showed no mineralisation defects. The primary analysis of the SOTI study, evaluating the effect of strontium ranelate 2000 mg on vertebral fracture rates, revealed a 41% reduction in the relative risk of patients experiencing a first new vertebral fracture with strontium ranelate throughout the 3-year study. The TROPOS study showed a significant reduction in the risk of experiencing a first non-vertebral fracture in the group treated with strontium ranelate throughout the 3-year study. A reduction in the risk of experiencing a hip fracture was also demonstrated in the patients treated for > or = 18 months. [less ▲]
