It is clear that even low rate smoking is hazardous for health, the risk being independently increased by the daily number of cigarettes smoked and by the duration of smoking. The question raised is thus: will an adolescent experimenter be a non smoker, an experimenter for ever, a regular smoker, light or heavy? This short review shows that there are numerous factors from genetics, to familial environment not limited to tobacco issues, smoking situation at school as well as school performances of the student, and also individual psychological characteristics. The experimenter is a very good target for smoking cessation actions and should deserve particular attention from preventive medicine and, thus, from school medicine, before he becomes a regular smoker, who will be more resistant to smoking cessation programs.

Melarsoprol is the main drug used for the treatment of late-stage sleeping sickness, although it causes severe side-effects such as encephalopathy and polyneuropathy leading to death in some patients. Recent data suggest that melarsoprol and its active metabolite melarsenoxide interfere with thiamin transport and metabolism in E. coli and yeast, but there are no data concerning their possible effects on thiamin metabolism in mammalian cells. We tested both drugs on thiamin transport in cultured mouse neuroblastoma cells using C-14-labeled thiamin. Melarsoprol, competitively inhibits high-affinity thiamin transport in mouse neuroblastoma cells with a K-i of 44 mu mol/L. However, the active compound melarsenoxide has no inhibitory effect. This suggests that the side effects of melarsoprol treatment are unlikely to be due to inhibition of thiamin transport by melarsenoxide, its main metabolite in the brain. [less ▲]

When bulk RE-BCO superconductors are used as permanent magnets in engineering applications, they are likely to experience transient variations of the applied magnetic field. The resulting vortex motion may cause a significant temperature increase. As a consequence the initial trapped flux is reduced. In the present work, we first focus on the cause of a temperature increase. The temperature distribution within a superconducting finite cylinder subjected to an alternating magnetic field is theoretically predicted. Results are compared to experimental data obtained by two temperature sensors attached to a bulk YBCO pellet. Second, we consider curative methods for reducing the effect of heat flux on the temperature increase. Hall-probe mappings on YBCO samples maintained out of the thermal equilibrium are performed for two different morphologies : a plain single domain and a single domain with a regularly spaced hole array. The drilled single-domain displays a trapped induction which is weakly affected by the local heating while displaying a high trapped field. [less ▲]

The cytoplasmic dye carboxyfluorescein diacetate succinimidyl ester (CFSE) is used to quantify cell kinetics. It is particularly important in studies of lymphocyte homeostasis where its labelling of cells irrespective of their stage in the cell cycle makes it preferable to deuterated glucose and BrdU, which only label dividing cells and thus produce unrepresentative results. In the past, experiments have been limited by the need to obtain a clear separation of CFSE peaks forcing scientists to adopt a strategy of in vitro labelling of cells followed by their injection into the host. Here we develop a framework for analysis of in vivo CFSE labelling data. This enables us to estimate the rate of proliferation and death of lymphocytes in situ, and thus represents a considerable advance over current procedures. We illustrate this approach using in vivo CFSE labelling of B lymphocytes in sheep. [less ▲]

Avec l’appui du service d’urbanisme de l’ULg, une série de projets sociaux ont été identifiés en 1995 à Wamaza, dans la région du Maniema et du Sud Kivu, en République Démocratique du Congo. Cela a permis d’initier un programme de recherche - action couvrant un large éventail d’interventions entrant dans le champ de l’aménagement du territoire et de l’urbanisme. Le programme de recherche s’appuyait sur une idée maîtresse : « l’amélioration de l’habitat rural peut freiner l’exode rural et contribuer ainsi au développement endogène des collectivités paysannes ».

Chronic inflammation and autoimmunity likely contribute to the pathogenesis of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs). The aim of this study was to investigate the role of autoimmunity in the etiology of AAAs using a genetic association study approach with human leukocyte antigen (HLA) polymorphisms (HLA-DQA1, -DQB1, -DRB1 and -DRB3-5 alleles) in 387 AAA cases and 426 controls. We observed an association with the HLA-DQA1 locus among Belgian males, and found a significant difference in the HLA-DQA1 *0102 allele frequencies between AAA cases and controls. In conclusion, this study showed potential evidence that the HLA-DQA1 locus harbors a genetic risk factor for AAAs suggesting that autoimmunity plays a role in the pathogenesis of AAAs. [less ▲]

We show that antiferromagnetism in lightly (approximate to 8%) Sn-doped CeIn3 terminates at a critical field mu H-0(c)=42 +/- 2 T. Electrical transport and thermodynamic measurements reveal the effective mass m(*) not to diverge, suggesting that cubic CeIn3 is representative of a critical spin-density wave (SDW) scenario, unlike the local quantum critical points reported in anisotropic systems such as CeCu6-xAux and YbRh2Si2-xGex. The existence of a maximum in m(*) at a lower field mu H-0(x)=30 +/- 1 T may be interpreted as a field-induced crossover from local moment to SDW behavior as the Neel temperature falls below the Fermi temperature.

In the filled gallium-germanium clathrates, R8Ga16Ge30, where R is Ba, Sr, or Eu, the guests are located in two large cages and are weakly bound to the crystalline clathrate framework. The caged guests exhibit a localized "rattling" vibrational mode that provides an efficient mechanism for reducing the thermal conductivity. Inelastic neutron scattering and nuclear inelastic scattering measurements have yielded the phonon density of states in R8Ga16Ge30; the line width of the localized vibrational modes is found to be an important parameter in determining the lattice thermal conductivity. Neutron diffraction studies on R8Ga16Ge30 have shown that the guests in the larger cage are located off-center, and it was proposed that their jumping about the four off-center locations is responsible for the observed glass-like thermal conductivity at temperatures below 10 K. The detection of such slow guest motion is challenging because the typical time and energy scales involved are ca. 4 ns and 1 mu eV, respectively. We have studied the slow europium tunneling dynamics in Eu4Sr4Ga16Ge30 by both Mossbauer and microwave absorption spectroscopy. [less ▲]
