Management of diabetes mellitus can be responsible for cutaneous adverse events. For example, lipoatrophy or lipohypertrophy can develop at the site of insulin injections. Lipohypertrophy remains a frequent complication of insulin therapy irrespective of the insulin source and mode of administration. Lipoatrophy at insulin injection sites is considered to be an immune complex-mediated inflammatory lesion; however, it has become a rare event since the advent of human insulin. Nowadays, continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII) using a portable pump and/or injections of insulin analogs with an altered amino acid sequence compared with native insulin may cause lipodystrophy in diabetic patients. Some case reports describe the recovery of lipoatrophy following the use of CSII and/or short-acting insulin analogs. Conversely, exceptional cases of lipoatrophy have occurred in patients receiving lispro insulin analog via CSII. Lipodystrophy reactions remain a potential problem when managing diabetic patients with new insulin therapy technologies. [less ▲]

This paper presents a methodology of damage analysis at elevated temperature using the finite element method. Both the model and the methodology to identify parameters are summarized. The mechanical properties are established using compression tests at elevated temperature. An elasto-visco-plastic model depending on temperature is identified. A metallographic analysis is used to determine the original size and morphology of the austenitic grains. The experimental damage analyses consist in acoustic tests in order to determine the apparition of the first crack during compression. Finite element simulations of these experiments allow the determination of the damage parameters using a reverse method. [less ▲]

The Mossbauer spectra of alpha-Zn4Sb3, a compound that is best formulated as alpha-Zn13Sb10 or (Zn2+)(13)(Sb3-)(6)(Sb-2(4-))(2), have been measured between 5 and 120 K. The resulting six spectra have been simultaneously fit with two components in the ratio of 3:2 corresponding to the Sb3- and Sb2- ions identified in this valence semiconductor. The fits yield temperature independent isomer shifts of -8.17(2) and -9.73(2) mm/s and quadrupole interactions of -4.9(2) and 0 mm/s for the Sb3- and Sb2- ions, respectively; the corresponding Mossbauer temperatures are 197(5) and 207(5) K, temperatures that are lower than the Debye temperature of beta-Zn4Sb3. The isomer shifts correspond to electronic configurations between 5s(2)5p(6) and 5s(1.75)5p(4.01) for the Sb3- ions and between 5s(2)5p(5) and 5s(1.80)5p(3.38) for the Sb2- ions, configurations that are in good agreement with the expected configurations for this valence semiconductor and with the results of band structure calculations.

Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis known as inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) are chronic immuno-inflammatory pathologies of the gastrointestinal tract. These diseases are multifactorial, polygenic and of unknown etiology. Clinical presentation is non-specific and diagnosis is based on clinical, endoscopic, radiological and histological criteria. Novel markers are needed to improve early diagnosis and classification of these pathologies. We performed a study with 120 serum samples collected from patients classified in 4 groups (30 Crohn, 30 ulcerative colitis, 30 inflammatory controls and 30 healthy controls) according to accredited criteria. We compared protein sera profiles obtained with a Surface Enhanced Laser Desorption Ionization-Time of Flight-Mass Spectrometer (SELDI-TOF-MS). Data analysis with univariate process and a multivariate statistical method based on multiple decision trees algorithms allowed us to select some potential biomarkers. Four of them were identified by mass spectrometry and antibody based methods. Multivariate analysis generated models that could classify samples with good sensitivity and specificity (minimum 80%) discriminating groups of patients. This analysis was used as a tool to classify peaks according to differences in level on spectra through the four categories of patients. Four biomarkers showing important diagnostic value were purified, identified (PF4, MRP8, FIBA and Hpalpha2) and two of these: PF4 and Hpalpha2 were detected in sera by classical methods. SELDI-TOF-MS technology and use of the multiple decision trees method led to protein biomarker patterns analysis and allowed the selection of potential individual biomarkers. Their downstream identification may reveal to be helpful for IBD classification and etiology understanding. [less ▲]

Pour la conception de systèmes de vidéo-surveillance, il est avantageux d’avoir un système de détection automatique d’êtres humains. Certains de ces systèmes sont basés sur la reconnaissance de la forme de silhouettes humaines. L’utilisation de méthodes d'apprentissage pour la reconnaissance nécessite une base de données de silhouettes humaines, dont il est intéressant d’automatiser la génération. Dans ce travail, nous utilisons un avatar humain tridimensionnel, celui du projet open-source MakeHuman, afin de générer automatiquement la base de données. Le choix des configurations (positions, orientations et poses) à donner à l’avatar pour obtenir une base de données adéquate est central. Dans un premier temps, nous tentons une étude de l’impact de modifications dans le mode tridimensionnel sur la silhouette. Cet impact est quantifié par la distance de Hausdorff. Parmi les modifications envisagées se trouvent le déplacement, la rotation et le changement de pose de l’avatar. Nous espérions déterminer, à partir de ces impacts, les pas par lesquels doivent varier les différents paramètres. Les configurations que doit prendre l’avatar, pour obtenir une base de données suffisamment riche sans être trop volumineuse, seront obtenues en prenant toutes les combinaisons des valeurs des différents paramètres. Le nombre de configurations est exponentiel en le nombre de degrés de liberté, ce qui rend l’approche inutilisable en pratique, même si nous sommes indifférents à la translation et à la mise à l’échelle des silhouettes. Dans un deuxième temps, nous avons opté pour une approche radicalement différente. Cette fois, nous n’espaçons plus les silhouettes, mais les poses. La position de l’avatar est fixée et il ne peut tourner qu’autour de l’axe vertical. Les poses sont choisies en effectuant des tirages aléatoires des différents paramètres. Cette approche aléatoire du problème a mené à l’élaboration d’un nouveau logiciel, Silhouette. Il est écrit en Java et une interface écrite en C lui permet, grâce à Java Native Interface d’exploiter efficacement le moteur de pose de MakeHuman. Parmi les fonctionnalités de Silhouette, notons la possibilité de restreindre les poses à un ensemble voulu, de ne générer que des silhouettes correspondant à des poses licites et d’annoter les silhouettes. Grâce au logiciel mis en place, nous avons été en mesure de générer diverses bases de données. Nous avons étudié l'impact de l'utilisation de celles-ci sur les performances d'un système de détection de personnes existant. Nous obtenons des résultats encourageants, 73% des silhouettes humaines étant correctement détectées. Un raffinement et un paramétrage soigneux de la méthode devraient mener à des résultats excellents. [less ▲]

Hitherto, forty-one national referendums have been conducted on European integration in over twenty countries. While it is clear that this process has not led to a widely shared common identity, this paper explores the hypothesis that national referendums on European issues do in fact contribute to the emergence of a European identity. I will propose three mechanisms by which this is likely to happen. Firstly, although referendums and especially the debate preceding them may sharpen the divide between Europhiles and Euroskeptics, they bear the potential to bring into the public sphere awareness of European issues and therefore to spark a learning process. Secondly, the debates triggered by referendums give rise to the emergence of a European public sphere, even in member-states which do not conduct referendums. Thirdly, they can contribute to narrowing the gap between political elites and ordinary citizens, thereby reducing the democratic deficit. In addition to the burgeoning literature on the topic, which however focuses on the relationship between referendums and support for European integration, Eurobarometers provide substantive and quantitative data on the issues –namely European referendums and identities– raised in this paper. The study will focus on the twenty-seven referendums of the post-Treaty of Maastricht era. The discussion of the concept of European identity opens the essay. In the following sections, I present briefly the political and historical context in regard to referendums upon which I attempt to demonstrate the three specific mechanisms (learning process, European public sphere, and reduction of the democratic deficit) in the emergence of a European identity, using Eurobarometers data which show the evolution of national and European identification before and after the organization of the referendums. The conclusion discusses the findings and explores other elements that matter in constructing a European identity. [less ▲]

Numerical modelling of the lateral-torsional buckling of steel beams at elevated temperature has shown that the beam design curve from EN 1993-1-2 is over-conservative in the case of non-uniform bending. Based on the newly proposed methodology for cold design from the EN 1993-1-1, an improved proposal for the lateral-torsional buckling of unrestrained steel beams subjected to fire is presented in this paper that addresses the issue of the influence of the loading type, the steel grade, the pattern of the residual stresses (hot-rolled or welded sections) and the ratio h/b, between the depth h and the width b of the cross-section on the resistance of the beam, achieving better agreement with the numerical behaviour while maintaining safety. The proposal is found to be safe and accurate through an extensive comparison with the results of FEM numerical simulations of more than 5000 beams. A statistical study of the results is performed, showing the accuracy of the improved proposal presented in this paper. (C) 2007 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved. [less ▲]
