In this review paper, the authors critically analyse the use of a number of depth of anaesthesia monitors in light of the most recent literature and their own clinical experience. There appears to be increasing evidence that anaesthesia depth monitors reduce the incidence of unexpected intraoperative awareness and also that they improve the quality of anaesthesia. Proper use of these monitors necessitates background knowledge about the physiology of the loss of consciousness, the type of variable recorded and processed by the monitoring devices, the factors that might interfere with recording and the limits of use. The information provided by anaesthesia depth monitors is detailed and relationships with clinical practice are established to provide the reader with key features for optimal use of those monitors and correct interpretation of data. Practitioners and patient's knowledge and expectations regarding this matter, as well as the cost-benefit relationship are also discussed. [less ▲]

DBP reduction in the last 6 h of the once-daily dosing interval and 24-h mean DBP control when a dose is missed are significantly superior with telmisartan than with valsartan. Thus, telmisartan due to its longer half -life offers more sustained BP control, especially at the end of the dosing period and provides sustained efficacy in poorly compliant patients. [less ▲]

A sequence-based prediction method was employed to identify three ligand-binding domains in transferrin-binding protein B (TbpB) of Neisseria meningitidis strain B16B6. Site-directed mutagenesis of residues located in these domains has led to the identification of two domains, amino acids 53 to 57 and 240 to 245, which are involved in binding to human transferrin (htf). These two domains are conserved in an alignment of different TbpB sequences from N. meningitidis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae, indicating a general functional role of the domains. Western blot analysis and BIAcore and isothermal titration calorimetry experiments demonstrated that site-directed mutations in both binding domains led to a decrease or abolition of htf binding. Analysis of mutated proteins by circular dichroism did not provide any evidence for structural alterations due to the amino acid replacements. The TbpB mutant R243N was devoid of any htf-binding activity, and antibodies elicited by the mutant showed strong bactericidal activity against the homologous strain, as well as against several heterologous tbpB isotype I strains.

This paper presents an extension of the energy momentum conserving algorithm, developed by the authors for hypoelastic constitutive models. For such a material, contrarily to hyperelastic models, no potential can be defined, and thus the conservation of the energy is ensured only if the elastic work of deformation can be restored by the scheme. In a previous paper, we proposed a new expression of internal forces at the finite element level which is shown to verify this property. We also demonstrated that the work of plastic deformation is positive and consistent with the material model. In this paper, the second order terms that were neglected in the previous work are now taken into account. Several numerical applications are presented to demonstrate the necessity of taking these terms into account once large time step sizes are used. The limitations of the Newmark algorithm in the non-linear range are also illustrated. (C) 2003 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved. [less ▲]

During the last decade, recurrent epizootics have affected harbour seal (Phoca vitulina) populations in the North Sea. The trace metal levels of the harbour seal in the Southern North Sea are poorly known. In this study, trace metal concentrations (Zn, Cu, Fe, Cd, Hg and Se) were measured in tissues (liver, kidney and muscle) of 72 harbour seals collected along the coasts of France, Belgium and Netherlands between 1994 and 2004. Hg levels were significantly higher in seals from the Southern North Sea than in seals from Norwegian waters (1) probably due to the amount of anthropogenic inputs in the North Sea. Hepatic Hg was positively correlated to hepatic Se, both increasing with the length of the seals. Such a relationship reflects an age accumulation process coupled to a detoxication mechanism involving antagonism between Hg and Se in the liver. Increasing Zn and Hg hepatic levels were observed with degrading body condition of the harbour seals, which is reflected by decreasing blubber thickness and high hepatic to total body mass ratio. Body condition was particularly poor in seals which died from infectious diseases. These observations tend to indicate a global redistribution of trace metals from muscle and blubber to liver, as a result of protein and lipid catabolism linked to disease and starvation. [less ▲]

Venous insufficiency of the legs is a frequent and insidious disorder which, through its consequences’ cascade, lead to some cutaneous microangiopathy with relative ischemia. Chronic leg ulcer is the late issue of the process accompanied by varied medical and socio-economic aspects. The pathogeny of the cutaneous lesions is directly related to alterations in hemorrheology and leukocyte adhesion inside capillaries. Elastic contention and some venotropic drugs exert preventive effects on the development of leg ulcers. They also bring some therapeutic improvement of the symptoms of leg heaviness. [less ▲]

Canine sino-nasal aspergillosis is a common cause of chronic nasal discharge. The pathogenesis of the disease is not well understood but factors associated to the fungus and to the host are implicated. Even if computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging have been proved valuable in differentiating sino-nasal aspergillosis from neoplasia, the definitive diagnosis of the disease requires visualisation of the fungus either by rhinoscopy, cytology or histology. The best treatment involves topical administration of antifungal drugs. The long-term prognosis is guarded to good. [less ▲]

Cette étude se penche sur un procédé cinématographique singulier, apparu dans les années 1905-1906 (même si quelques occurrences peuvent s'en repérer dès 1903) : ce qu'il est convenu d'appeler le "plan emblématique". Défini sommairement, le plan emblématique est un plan généralement non narratif, qui se plaçait soit en début, soit en fin de film. Placé en début de bande, pareil plan avait pour fonction essentielle de présenter le ou les personnages principaux ; disposé au contraire en fin de film, ce plan spécifique, souvent rapproché, avait pour but de marquer, de façon attractive, la clôture du récit. Emergeant alors que le cinéma s'engage résolument dans la voie de la narration, le plan emblématique est la marque de ce que les films se montrent de plus en plus soucieux de leurs propres limites ou extrémités, et cela au moment même où naît, historiquement parlant, le spectateur de cinéma.
