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 ▲]

Over the last 20 years, significant improvements in hepatic surgery and transplantation have allowed better results. Better patients selection, new preoperative modalities aiming at modifying the volume of the liver or the tumour, new surgical techniques, and better postoperative management are the keys to improved outcome. These progresses are reviewed in this article. In hepatic surgery, the latest surgical improvements are the possibility of laparoscopic hepatic resection and of radiofrequency ablation. Modern neoadjuvant chemotherapy may in some cases allow a reduction of large liver colorectal metastases and render them resectable. Improved radiological techniques allow better planning of the surgical resections, reduction of the risks by calculation of the residual liver mass, and induction of liver hypertrophy by preoperative portal embolisation. In liver transplantation, the most significant changes were the use of living related liver donors and of non-heart beating donors to overcome the cadaveric organ donor shortage. [less ▲]

We explore the kinematic mechanisms of active large-scale folding, based on analysis of two adjacent major anticlines in Tian Shan (central Asia) that share an acceleration of shortening rate leading to topographic emergence and folded geomorphic surfaces. Their folding mechanisms are fundamentally different. Yakeng anticline is a gentle pure shear detachment fold with 1200 m of shortening and a well-constrained history of growth beginning at 5.5 Ma with an order-of-magnitude increase in shortening rate from 0.16 to 1.2–1.6 mm/yr at 0.16–0.21 Ma. The shape of the deformed topographic surface and of subsurface horizons deposited during deformation is a linearly proportional image at reduced amplitude of the deeper structure, which shows that instantaneous uplift rates have been pointwise linearly proportional to the current finite fold amplitude. In contrast, Quilitak anticline is a complex fault bend fold with uplift rates proportional to the sine of the fault dip, showing discontinuities in uplift rate across active axial surfaces. The 10- to 20-km-wide anticline is topographically emergent only in a central 5- to 7-km-wide mountainous uplift, the abrupt southern edge of which is marked by 600- to 700-m-high triangular facets that result from active folding of a pediment across an active axial surface. The giant facets are shown to form by kink band migration and record postemergence deformation since an order-of-magnitude acceleration in shortening rate from 0.6 t 4–5 mm/yr, apparently contemporaneous with Yakeng. Sections logged across the active 115-m-wide hinge zone show that recent strata provide a bed- by-bed record of fold scarp growth, which is quantitatively deciphered by fitting bed shapes to a finite width kink band migration model.

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.

Penicillium marneffei infection is a rare fungal disease that cause significant disease in immunosuppressed patients. The geographical distribution of this dimorphic fungus is restricted to Asia, Southeast and Far East, where the disease is considered as an indicator of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). Case report. A 42-year old Congolese woman living in Lubumbashi was admitted at the university hospital of Liège for exploration of a general status impairment. She experienced for three months spiking fever, weight loss, productive cough with bloody expectorations and progressive dyspnoea. She reported also to have non-bloody mild diarrhoea with abdominal pain. The HIV antibody status was positive with a low CD4 T lymphocytes count (28/µl). Pulmonary infiltrates were visualized on chest radiography and the computed tomography revealed the presence of a severe pneumopathy characterised by bilateral micronodular lesions. Mediastinal polyadenopathies associated with hepato- and splenomegaly were also highlighted. Bronchoscopy was performed and bronchial aspirations revealed the presence of numerous leucocytes with the presence of intracellular Gram positive organisms suggestive of yeasts. Ziehl, Giemsa and Gomori-Grocott staining were also performed. Ziehl staining was negative. The morphological aspect given by Giemsa staining excluded infection and the PCR specific for T. gondii B1 gene was negative. However, Gomori-Grocott staining revealed the presence of intracellular oval, elongated, sausage-shaped cells with a single transverse septum (3 to 5 µm). Penicillium marneffei was isolated from blood culture and respiratory samples. Intraveinous amphotericin B treatment was administrated during 15 days followed by itraconazole oral administration (200 mg/j). The antimycotic treatment improved the patient condition and despite other clinical troubles she was prematurely discharged because of financial problems. Conclusion. Opportunistic agents involved in HIV-infected patients differ in Africa and Asia and it is important to be able to make a rapid diagnosis with the aid of an experienced laboratory. [less ▲]

La morphologie des particules est une propriété essentielle pour comprendre et prédire leur rhéologie, leur agglomération, leur compaction et bien d'autres de leurs propriétés physiques. Suite à l'apparition de nouvelles techniques d'imagerie en trois dimensions adaptées aux matériaux, il est à présent possible d'étendre les descripteurs de forme existant en deux dimensions à la troisième. Deux échantillons de particules métalliques dont l'étendue granulaire est de 150-250 μm ont été selectionnés. Le choix de ces poudres est un véritable défi car la forme complexe des particules justifie l'élaboration de nouveaux descripteurs de taille et de forme. Cet article présentes les résultats de la caractérisation morphologique en trois dimensions de matériaux granulaires. L'acquisition d'images est pratiquée par microtomographie des rayons X permettant une résolution inférieure à 10 μm. Pour chaque particule, le volume, la surface, l'allongement, l'aplatissement, la convexité et le rayon de la sphère maximale inscrite sont calculés en trois dimensions. Les algorithmes écrits pour mesurer ces propriétés ont été validés sur des particules synthétiques. La réalisation d'une analyse morphologique complète de quelques milliers de particules permet d'appréhender les paramètres de forme de façon statistique. Finalement, les résultats seront confrontés à ceux obtenus par analyse d'image statique (SIA) en 2D. [less ▲]

Stricturing subocclusive small bowel Crohn's disease (CD) is often an indication for surgery. We embarked on an open label pilot study to assess the safety and efficacy of infliximab in patients with stricturing subocclusive CD. Patients and methods : A cohort of patients with a documented and symptomatic small bowel stricture caused by CD was studied. Patients had to be refractory to corticosteroids and/or immunosuppressives, and not in need for immediate surgery. The patients were treated by a single infusion of infliximab 5 mg/kg and followed up at w1, w2, w4 and w8. Results : After the 6(th) patients, the study was prematurely discontinued because the predefined safety thresholds of more than 2 surgeries within the first 5 patients was reached. Only two patients completed the 8 weeks study, with a positive response to infliximab and improvement of inflammation confirmed by the CRP and CT scan. Two patients had to be operated early and the last two patients first did well but worsened after one month and were operated 35 and 42 days after infliximab, respectively. No surgical complications occurred in the 4 operated patients. In conclusion, a subset of patients with subocclusive small bowel stricturing CD may benefit from infliximab. [less ▲]
