This paper surveys the growing literature on developing countries’ infrastructure performance measured through frontier analysis techniques. The focus is generally on assessments of operators’ efficiency and productivity growth as part of benchmarking exercises. Two broad types of benchmarks are identified in the literature. The first is based on cross-country or cross regional performance comparisons, the second compares performance before and after reforms, including privatization. These benchmarks are often used to assess the impact of potential or actual policy reforms in specific countries. In a growing number of instances, they are also being conducted in the context of tariff revisions to assess the efficiency gains that can be shared with users as part of these revisions. The main policy conclusions are that there is a difference in the performance effect of key reforms, in particular privatization, between the transport sector and the utilities sector but that generally incentive based regulation delivers efficiency in both sectors The main technical conclusion is that even if in developing economies data problems are constraining, these constraints are not as binding as often argued.

The field of neurology was long infamous for a lack of therapeutic options. How many of you have once thought: "Neurologists don't cure the disease, they admire it". But those days have passed into history, and the field is now vibrant with new treatments and hope even for patients with the worst neurodegenerative diseases. We summarized in the present review the latest major advances in therapeutic principles and practice for some of the most frequent chronic neurological disorders such as headaches, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, dementias, Parkinson's disease, sleep/wake disturbances and peripheral neuropathies. We cannot cure or prevent, but we can now halt or control symptoms and disease progression to provide physical and psychological relief, and a better quality of life for patients who suffer from these otherwise devastating neurological conditions.

Rain-wind induced vibrations have been widely studied during the last decades. Today it is desirable to use the experience gathered in this field in order to develop a practical design procedure offering both security and economy. After a restricted review of some analytical models, this paper points out the need for a semi-empirical method if the complexity of this design procedure has to be kept at its minimum. Based on measured data collected during field tests and wind tunnel experiments, a new proposal is suggested. [less ▲]

Herpesviruses maintain long-term infectivity without marked antigenic variation. They must therefore evade neutralization by other means. Immune sera block murine gammaherpesvirus-68 (MHV-68) infection of fibroblasts, but fail to block and even enhance its infection of IgG Fc receptor-bearing cells, suggesting that the antibody response to infection is actually poor at ablating virion infectivity completely. Here we analyzed this effect further by quantitating the glycoprotein-specific antibody response of MHV-68 carrier mice. Gp150 was much the commonest glycoprotein target and played a predominant role in driving Fc receptor-dependent infection: when gp150-specific antibodies were boosted, Fc receptor-dependent infection increased; and when gp150-specific antibodies were removed, Fc receptor-dependent infection was largely lost. Neither gp150-specific monoclonal antibodies nor gp150-specific polyclonal sera gave significant virion neutralization. Gp150 therefore acts as an immunogenic decoy, distorting the MHV-68-specific antibody response to promote Fc receptor-dependent infection and so compromise virion neutralization. This immune evasion mechanism may be common to many non-essential herpesvirus glycoproteins. [less ▲]

A simple method is described to establish primary cultures of kidney proximal tubule cells (PTC) on membranes. The permeable membranes represent a unique culture surface, allowing a high degree of differentiation since both apical and basolateral membranes are accessible for medium. Proximal tubule (PT) segments from collagenase-digested mouse renal cortices were grown for 7 days, by which time cells were organized as a confluent monolayer. Electron microscopic evaluation revealed structurally polarized epithelial cells with numerous microvilli, basolateral invaginations, and apical tight junctions. Immunoblotting for markers of distinct parts of the nephron demonstrated that these primary cultures only expressed PT-specific proteins. Moreover immunodetection of distinct components of the receptor-mediated endocytic pathway and uptake of FITC-albumin indicated that these cells expressed a functional endocytotic apparatus. In addition, primary cultures possessed the PT brush-border enzymes, alkaline phosphatase, and gamma-glutamyl-transferase, and a phloridzin-sensitive sodium-dependent glucose transport at their apical side. Electrophysiological measurements show that the primary cultured cells have a low transepithelial resistance and high short-circuit current that was completely carried by Na(+) similar to a leaky epithelium like proximal tubule cells. This novel method established well-differentiated PTC cultures. [less ▲]
