This paper addresses a new, unified thermo-mechanical constitutive model for unsaturated soils through a coupled study. In the context of elastoplasticity and the critical state theory, the model uses the concepts of multimechanism and bounding surface theory. This advanced constitutive approach involves thermo-plasticity of saturated and unsaturated soils. Bishop’s effective stress framework is adopted to represent the stress state in the soil. This stress is linked to the water retention curve, which is represented by an elasto-plastic model. Attention is focused particularly on the coupling relations inferred from this unified thermohydro-mechanical (THM) study. Finally, the theoretical aspects of the paper are supported by comparisons between numerical simulations and experimental results. [less ▲]

Endogenous myocardial nitric oxide (NO) may modulate the transition from adaptive to maladaptive remodeling leading to heart failure. In rodent models of pressure overload or myocardial infarction, the three NO synthase (NOS) isoforms were shown to play a neutral, protective, or even adverse role in myocardial remodeling, depending on the quantity of NO produced, the location of each NOS and their regulators, the prevailing oxidant stress and resultant NO/oxidant balance, as well as NOS coupling/dimerization. Beside neuronal NOS and--in specific conditions--inducible NOS isoforms, endothelial NOS (eNOS) exerts cardioprotective effects on pressure-overload, ischemia/reperfusion, and myocardial infarction-induced myocardial remodeling, provided the enzyme remains in a coupled state. Besides its effects on excitation-contraction coupling in response to stretch, eNOS acts as an "endogenous beta-blocker" by restoring the sympathovagal balance, opposing excessive hypertrophy as well as promoting vasodilatation and neoangiogenesis, thereby contributing to tissue repair. As eNOS was also shown to mediate the beneficial effects of cardiovascular drugs commonly used in patients with heart failure, strategies to increase its expression and/or coupled catalytic activity in the myocardium offer new therapeutic avenues for the treatment of this disease.

We sampled a tidal creek (Ras Dege, Tanzania) during a 24-h cycle to document the variations in a suite of creek water column characteristics and to determine the relative influence of tidal and biological driving forces. Since the creek has no upstream freshwater inputs, highest salinity was observed at low tide, due to evaporation effects and porewater seepage. Total suspended matter (TSM) and particulate organic carbon (POC) showed distinct maxima at periods of highest water flow, indicating that erosion of surface sediments and/or resuspension of bottom sediments were an important source of particulate material. Dissolved organic carbon (DOC), in contrast, varied in phase with water height and was highest at low tide. Stable isotope data of POC and DOC displayed large variations in both pools, and similarly followed the variations in water height. Although the variation of 13CDOC (−23.8 to −13.8‰) was higher than that of 13CPOC (−26.2 to −20.5‰), due to the different endmember pool sizes, the 13C signatures of both pools differed only slightly at low tide, but up to 9‰ at high tide. Thus, at low tide both DOC and POC originated from mangrove production. At high tide, however, the DOC pool had signatures consistent with a high contribution of seagrass-derived material, whereas the POC pool was dominated by marine phytoplankton. Daily variations in CH4, and partial pressure of CO2 (pCO2) were similarly governed by tidal influence and were up to 7- and 10-fold higher at low tide, which stresses the importance of exchange of porewater and diffusive fluxes to the water column. When assuming that the high dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC) levels in the upper parts of the creek (i.e. at low tide) are due to inputs from mineralization, 13C data on DIC indicate that the organic matter source for mineralization had a signature of −22.4‰. Hence, imported POC and DOC from the marine environment contributes strongly to overall mineralization within the mangrove system. Our data demonstrate how biogeochemical processes in the intertidal zone appear to be prominent drivers of element concentrations and isotope signatures in the water column, and how pathways of dissolved and particulate matter transport are fundamentally different.

Many causes of thyroxine malabsorption are described in the literature, but the most common cause of failure of thyroxine therapy is poor patient compliance, or pseudomalabsorption. We describe the case of a female patient who underwent total thyroidectomy for Basedow-Graves disease. Post-operatively, several treatment regimens were employed to achieve euthyroidism, but only injectable thyroxine was found to be effective. To exclude levothyroxine malabsorption, the patient was hospitalized in a hypothyroid state while a single oral test dose of levothyroxine (1000 microg) was administered. Within 4 hours a decrease of TSH level (from 59.7 to 55.6 microUI/ml) and a significant increase in free T4 levels (from 0.8 to 15.5 pg/ml) was observed, eliminating a malabsorption problem. The cause of resistance to thyroid hormone therapy was poor patient compliance, leading to the designation of this as a case of pseudomalabsorption. [less ▲]

High magnetic field induces quantum criticality in CeIn3 with suppressing the Neel temperature. Estimated quantum critical. efield of CeIn3 is about 60T where the Neel temperature is suppressed to reach absolute zero. The magnetic. field (60T) is too high to measure electrical resistivity or specific heat precisely. Sn doping to In site of CeIn3 reduces the Neel temperature. Reduction of Neel temperature indicates lower critical. field to facilitate investigation of electronic states at high magnetic. fields. Electrical resistivity and specific. c heat in CeIn2.Sn-85(0.25) were measured to map an H-T phase diagram. (c) 2006 Elsevier B. V. All rights reserved. [less ▲]

Gliomas frequently display constitutive activation of the transcription factor STAT3, a protein that is known to be able to mediate neoplastic transformation. STAT3 regulates genes that play a central role in cellular survival, proliferation, self-renewal, and invasion, and a cohort of STAT3 target genes have been found that are commonly coexpressed in human cancers. Thus, these genes likely subserve the transforming ability of constitutively activated STAT3. To determine whether the coordinated expression of STAT3 target genes is present in a subset of human gliomas, and whether this changes the biology of these tumors in patients, gene expression analysis was performed in four distinct human glioma data sets for which patient survival information was available. Coordinate expression of STAT3 targets was significantly associated with poor patient outcome in each data set. Specifically, patients with tumors displaying high expression of STAT3 targets had a shorter median survival time compared to patients whose tumors had low expression of STAT3 targets. These data suggest that constitutively activated STAT3 in gliomas can alter the biology of these tumors, and that development of targeted STAT3 inhibitors would likely be of particular benefit in treatment of this disease.
