The state of Minas Gerais (Brazil) is characterized by significant karst regions, which develop <br /><br />in both sandstone and quartzite terrains and display complex suites of underground and surfaceforms. In the Espinhaço Ridge, Central Minas Gerais, several caves of up to a few hundred metres long, occur in the surroundings of the town of Diamantina. Some of these caves, such as Salitre actually consist of swallow-holes. Other horizontal caves are characterized by corrosion forms generated in the phreatic zone. In some places, such as in the Rio Preto area, these phreatic forms are overprinted by ceiling tubes, suggesting a polyphase karst evolution, prior to the draining in the cave. Remains of paths, with circular cross section up to one metre in diameter, can be found through residual tower-like surface landforms widely present in the landscapes. Their dissection is due to a generalised karstification in the area, resulting in closed canyons, megakarrens and kamenitzas. In Southern Minas Gerais, close to the Mantiqueira Ridge, the caves of the Ibitipoca state park can reach more than 2 km in length. These caves are associated with a very large hanging geological syncline. Several of these caves contain active streams, which flow for hundreds of metres before disappearing in sand-choked passages. Keyhole cross sections characterize steeply descending passages in these caves, indicatinga chan ge from slow phreatic flow towards a faster vadose flow responsible for the vertical incision of the passage. Such change is probably related to base level lowering and/or to turn in the direction of the water flow. Several generations of wall-pockets, from a few centimetres to over a metre long, occur into the caves. These features are good indicators of the initial phase of speleogenesis, generating the initial conduits by their coalescence. This mechanism is also responsible for cut-off meanders. In the area, the main river flows along the syncline axis and cuts through a rock barrier, generating a tunnel-like passage. This cave drains, through resurgences in its walls, part of the water that flows in other caves located in the flank of the syncline. [less ▲]

A l'heure actuelle, le bioraffinage se présente de plus en plus comme une alternative prometteuse aux filières pétrochimiques puisqu'il vise à la fois le remplacement d'une partie du pétrole comme source d'énergie et le développement de produits chimiques issus de la biomasse (végétale principalement) tels que détergents, produits phytopharmaceutiques, dissolvants, matières plastiques, etc. La valorisation de carbohydrates provenant de matières premières renouvelables [1] fait ainsi actuellement l'objet de nombreuses recherches. Dans ce cadre, la synthèse de nouveaux tensioactifs non ioniques dérivés des acides Dglucuronique et D-galacturonique a été effectuée de manière chimique et/ou enzymatique. [less ▲]

Background. This study investigated the relationship between phonological and syntactic disorders of French-speaking children with SLI in production. Aims. This article compares three theories (pure phonological theory, surface theory and mapping theory) of language developmental disorders, all of which view phonological difficulties as the main reason for the children’s problems. Methods and procedures. The linguistic parameters (salience, phonological complexity, syntactic complexity, lexical/functional, semantic/syntactic) (that are fundamental) to these theories were identified. The validity of these parameters was then tested against the phonological and syntactic results obtained by children with SLI and control children. Nine syntactic categories were tested. Outcomes and results. Phonological complexity was the only parameter whose importance was confirmed, and this was only for phonological results. Syntactic complexity did not correlate significantly with children’s difficulties, and the importance of phonological salience was not confirmed for French-speaking children. Mixed results were obtained for the other parameters, including negative correlations, which may call for different explanations. Conclusions. No theory fully explained the observed outcomes. Pure phonological theory was the most parsimonious, but could not explain all the results. [less ▲]

The Immunosuppression in Pancreas Transplantation was historically based on the fact that the pancreas is an extremely immunogenic organ. Quadruple drug therapy with polyclonal or monoclonal antibodies induction was the mainstay therapy since the introduction of Cyclosporine A. In the modern era of Immunosuppression, Mycophenolate Mofetil replaced Azathioprine while Tacrolimus-another potent calcineurin inhibitor-had-and still has-a difficult challenge to replaced Cyclosporine A, due to its potential diabetogenic effect. Thanks to the first two EuroSPK studies which prospectively tried to answer several questions in that field. But, the future challenge will be in understanding the impact of innate immunity and ischemic reperfusion injuries on the long term graft function. Hopefully, new drugs will be available and tested to block unspecific deleterious reactions to attenuate the proinflammatory response. It will be the aim of the third Euro SPK Stud [less ▲]

It is now irrefutable that air pollution caused by large amounts of respiratory particulates (Particulate Matter less than 10 µm in aerodynamic diameter, PM10) has numerous undesired consequences on human health. Although air quality degradation far away from the African continent in the US and in Europe caused by high concentration of African dust is seen as a major health threat although most of these countries are very distant from the Sahara; no estimates of PM10 levels near the Saharan dust source are available. Based on horizontal visibility observations which are reduced by the presence of dust in the atmosphere, PM10 levels are estimated during 2005 at Niamey-Airport, Niger. It appears that excessive concentrations of particles are very important both in magnitude and frequency as the 24-hour PM10 thresholds established by the US EPA National Ambient Air Quality Standards and the EU Limits Values for Air Quality were exceeded 103 and 67 times, respectively. The average yearly concentration is far above air quality standards and estimated to 92 µg m-3 for PM10. These very high particulate levels are likely to represent an important public health threat and should be considered as a major environmental risk. [less ▲]

Les recommandations internationales de 2005 concernant l’insuffisance rénale chronique proposent une classification basée sur le débit de filtration glomérulaire (DFG). Depuis cette date, la question posée de la validité des formules évaluant le DFG, et des créatininémies qui y sont insérées, se pose de façon encore plus cruciale qu’il y a quelques années. Pour les biologistes, les conséquences de ces recommandations cliniques sont importantes. En premier lieu, la formule classique de Cockcroft-Gault doit être abandonnée au profit de l’équation dite MDRD à 4 variables, et ce malgré les recommandations officielles françaises actuelles, qui devraient être modifiées d’ici peu. D’autre part, afin d’optimiser l’évaluation du DFG par cette formule, les biologistes doivent choisir entre la version dite « 186 » de l’équation MDRD, adaptée aux méthodes de dosage de la créatininémie non raccordées à la méthode de référence (chromatographie liquide ou gazeuse couplée à la spectrométrie de masse) et la version dite « 175 », adaptée aux méthodes de dosages raccordées. A ce jour, seules certaines méthodes enzymatiques ont fait la preuve de leur raccordement à une méthode de référence. L’avenir des méthodes colorimétriques classiques est incertain. [less ▲]
