Many CAD tools already allow to design and directly manipulate ideas in a digital way. However, designers still use pen and paper during the early design phase of their projects. Indeed, existing CAD tools constraint creative work. There is a need for a spontaneous human computer interaction in design computing. In order to answer to this need, we develop an integrated aided design tool based on a Virtual Desktop. The designer sits in front of a classical desk where s/he can design and manipulate drawings and generated models. This paper describes the observations made during experiment about Virtual Desktop’s use by a designer. The experiment demonstrates that the immersive aspect of our system interface modifies the relationship between the designer and his/her model and, by the way, how this relation generates a new type of augmented interaction.

The heterologous production in Escherichia coli, the purification, and the kinetic characterization of four plasmid-encoded class C beta-lactamases (ACT-1, MIR-1, CMY-2, and CMY-1) were performed. Except for their instability, these enzymes are very similar to the known chromosomally encoded AmpC beta-lactamases. Their kinetic parameters did not show major differences from those obtained for the corresponding chromosomal enzymes. However, the K(m) values of CMY-2 for cefuroxime, cefotaxime, and oxacillin were significantly decreased compared to those of the chromosomal AmpC enzymes. Finally, the susceptibility patterns of different E. coli hosts producing a plasmid- or a chromosome-encoded class C enzyme toward beta-lactam antibiotics are mainly due to the overproduction of the beta-lactamase in the periplasmic space of the bacteria rather than to a specific catalytic profile of the plasmid-encoded beta-lactamases.

Neoplasms of the urinary tract and male genital tract account for 32% of new cancers in males. Prostatic carcinoma is one of the most prevalent malignant tumors of the male reproductive organs, with an estimated 230,110 new cases and 29,900 deaths during the year 2004 in the United States. Although prostate cancer in its early stages is responsive to the standard treatments, no currently available treatment produces a survival advantage to patients with hormone-refractory prostate cancer. This lack of efficacy for the existing protocols points to the need for the development of effective regimens for treating or preventing these tumors. Vitamin C (VC) and vitamin K3 (VK3) administered to androgen independent prostate cancer cell lines in a VC:VK3 ratio of 100:1 exhibit synergistic antitumor activity and preferentially kill tumor cells by autoschizis, a novel type of cell death characterized by exaggerated membrane damage and progressive loss of organelle-free cytoplasm through a series of self-excisions. During this process, the nucleus becomes smaller; cell size decreases to 1/2 - 1/3 of its original size and most organelles surround an intact nucleus in a narrow rim of cytoplasm. While the mitochondria are condensed, tumor cell death does not result from ATP depletion. However, administration of the vitamin combination does: induce a G1/S and a G2/M block in the cell cycle, diminish DNA synthesis, increase hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) production and decrease cellular thiol levels. These effects can be prevented by the addition of catalase to scavenge the H2O2. There is a concurrent 8- to 10-fold increase in intracellular Ca2+ levels. Electrophoretic analysis of DNA reveals degradation due to the caspase-3 independent reactivation of DNase I by VK3 and DNase II by VC. Redox cycling of the vitamins is believed to increase oxidative stress until it surpasses the reducing ability of cellular thiols and induces Ca2+ release which triggers activation of Ca2+ dependent DNase and leads to degradation of DNA. Recent experiments indicate oral VC :VK3 increases the life span of tumor bearing nude mice and significantly reduces the growth rate of solid tumors without any significant toxicity by reactivating DNase I and II. Experimental animal studies indicate that autoschizis is also evident when the vitamin combination is administered to nude mice with implanted human prostate tumors. In a pilot clinical trial, end-stage prostate cancer patients given oral VC:VK3 are monitored by measuring prostate-specific antigen (PSA, a known serum marker of prostate tumor cells specific activity) and total serum homocysteine (a marker of tumor cell numbers with sensitivity for early detection of tumor cell death). The results show that the vitamin combination induces an immediate drop in tumor cell numbers, while serum PSA levels show an initial rise and a subsequent drop to below pretreatment levels. Taken together these facts suggest that the vitamin combination may offer great potential as a new antitumoral chemotherapy. The following chapter discusses the mechanisms of action employed by these vitamins to induce tumor specific death by autoschizis and examines the potential of the vitamin combination as an antitumor agent, chemosensitizer or a radiosensitizer in the treatment of prostatic neoplasms.

Health system in Belgium is a non system system. Hospital based health care are hyper developed. A&E services are the open door of the hospital. People are free to consult any doctor, GP, A&E service or specialist. Teaching medicine is specialist minded and only recently the speciality in GP/FM has been introduced. GP are working on fee for service in an unregulated market. Solo practice 90%. Computer literacy of GP very low. Mean age of working GPs is 45 and young doctor are not willing to work as GP. They are more specialist than GPs. GPs have a liberal economic status like in France and in the States. Patients are reimbursed on a 75% basis on each contact with healthcare provider without limit. Payment by third party is authorised for low cost patient. (3 months delay). I am working since 31 years in the suburbs of Charleroi, a city at the south-west of Belgium, near the French border, in a former carbon mine post industrial urban destroyed environment. Unemployed people are more than 20%, more for the women. Violence and addiction are common. I am in solo practice with a vocational training assistant, a secretary part time and my wife for general management and account. Workload: 50 to 60 hours/week. On call once a month and once each two months in week-ends. 10.000 contacts/year. 70% fees in third party. As a researcher and trainee in GP/FM I use ICPC (in French) in my daily practice in a paper-light system. (half paper, half computer). The poster presents, through a synoptic table, a quick look at all the contacts in my practice on Monday 11, July 2005. Place and hour of contact, Age, Sex, Ethnic origin, Payment mode, Reason for Encounter, Pre-assessment process, Working hypothesis, Post-assessment process. The four last one coded by ICPC-2. As a 'normal' reader is not considered to be fluent in ICPC codes, the poster is accompanied by a little leaflet containing the ICPC-2 code short list and a short text in English describing each contact with all the explanation of the coding process Intend of the poster is triple. Show workload of a Belgian GP, demonstrate the ability of ICPC in data classification and structure for epidemiological purpose in GP/FM, and develop a training tool for ICPC lecture. [less ▲]
