The following text deals with casting of copper-nickel alloys. They are high added values materials. The research contains two main parts. Laboratory tests (completed with bibliography) that provide thermal and mechanical properties of the ingot and the mould but also heat transfer coefficients between the ingot and its environment (mould, air and water). These parameters are required in the second part : development and validation of numerical modelization by the finite element method to optimise the industrial process. [less ▲]

Valdecoxib (Bextra tablets of 10 mg and 20 mg) is a new non steroidal antiinflammatory drug (NSAID) that selectively inhibits COX-2 isoform of cyclo-oxygenase. It is indicated for the symptomatic treatment of osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis (10 to 20 mg once a day) and for the treatment of primary dysmenorrhea (40 mg once a day). Valdecoxib is as efficacious as conventional non-COX-2 selective NSAIDs, but offers the advantage of a much better gastrointestinal tolerance. Valdecoxib has a prodrug that can be administered intravenously or intramuscularly (parecoxib, Dynastat) and has been developed for the short-term treatment of postsurgical pain. [less ▲]

This chapter reviews recent theoretical work on the effect of factor mobility and the ensuing tax competition on the capacity of governments to raise revenue and redistribute income. It focuses on three issues: the relevance and limitations of the "race to the bottom" result, the benefits and pitfalls of partial coordination and the incidence of factors mobility on social security systems.

BACKGROUND: Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is a relatively common disease, with 1% to 2% of the population harboring aneurysms. Genetic risk factors are likely to contribute to the development of AAAs, although no such risk factors have been identified. METHODS AND RESULTS: We performed a whole-genome scan of AAA using affected-relative-pair (ARP) linkage analysis that includes covariates to allow for genetic heterogeneity. We found strong evidence of linkage (logarithm of odds [LOD] score=4.64) to a region near marker D19S433 at 51.88 centimorgans (cM) on chromosome 19 with 36 families (75 ARPs) when including sex and the number of affected first-degree relatives of the proband (N(aff)) as covariates. We then genotyped 83 additional families for the same markers and typed additional markers for all families and obtained a LOD score of 4.75 (P=0.00014) with sex, N(aff), and their interaction as covariates near marker D19S416 (58.69 cM). We also identified a region on chromosome 4 with a LOD score of 3.73 (P=0.0012) near marker D4S1644 using the same covariate model as for chromosome 19. CONCLUSIONS: Our results provide evidence for genetic heterogeneity and the presence of susceptibility loci for AAA on chromosomes 19q13 and 4q31. [less ▲]

The aims of this study were (1) to correlate cough and body temperature (BT) with the severity of bronchopneumonia in pigs, (2) to determine whether these clinical signs can be used to early diagnose bronchopneumonia and (3) to assess the predictive values of cough and BT regarding lung lesions. Bronchopneumonia was induced by administering E. coli endotoxin (LPS) combined with Pasteurella multocida type A (PmA) in the trachea of 13 piglets. Saline-instilled negative controls (n = 8), PmA inoculated (n = 6) and LPS instilled (n = 5) groups were also constituted. Cough and BT were recorded daily while the bronchopneumonia severity was assessed using bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF) cytology, cytokines and measurement of lung lesion volume. Changes in expiratory breathing pattern were also measured (Penh). The combination of LPS and PmA induced a subacute bronchopneumonia characterised by macrophage, neutrophil, and lymphocyte infiltration, changes in Penh and an increase in the mRNA level of IFN-gamma while IL8, IL-18 and TNF-alpha mRNA levels remained unchanged. The daily body weight gain of infected animals was significantly reduced. Cough and BT changes were proportional to the intensity of the lung inflammatory process, functional respiratory changes and to the extent of macroscopic lesions. When comparing the individual values of cough and BT to thresholds defined for both parameters, an early diagnosis of pneumonia was possible. Considering the pooled data of each group, it was possible to define thresholds allowing an early segregation between the groups of diseased and healthy piglets. The daily values of cough and BT were predictive for the volume of lung lesions recorded at the end of the trial. In conclusion, cough and BT appear as potential indicators for the intensity and the evolution of the respiratory disease. They also seem to be good predictors for the magnitude of lung lesions and weight gain recorded at the study endpoint. [less ▲]

The pore texture of carbon materials obtained from evaporative drying and pyrolysis of resorcinol-formaldehyde aqueous gels is controlled by the initial pH of the precursors solution. In order to produce transition metal-containing carbons with tailored texture, various metallic salts were dissolved in the precursors solution. When necessary, a complexing agent (HEDTA or DTPA) was added to render the metal ions soluble. Ni, Fe and I'd loaded carbon xerogels were synthesized and their pore texture was studied after evaporative drying and after pyrolysis. The carbon texture was also studied with regard to the nature of the metal and the amount of complexing agent. The solubilization of transition metal salts in the resorcinol-formaldehyde aqueous solution does not prevent the texture regulation, even though this texture control is influenced: the limits of the pH interval leading to micro mesoporous carbon materials can slightly differ when a metal salt and/or a complexing agent are added. The pH range shift depends mainly on the amount and nature of the complexing agent, but also slightly on the nature of the metal ion. Nevertheless, the metal particles obtained are rather big (diameter > 15 nm). For catalytic applications, the metal dispersion must be enhanced, especially in the case of expensive metals.
