Manganese-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (ME-MRI), blood oxygen-level-dependent functional MRI (BOLD fMRI) and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) can now be applied to animal species as small as mice or songbirds. These techniques confirmed previous findings but are also beginning to reveal new phenomena that were difficult or impossible to study previously. These imaging techniques will lead to major technical and conceptual advances in systems neurosciences. We illustrate these new developments with studies of the song control and auditory systems in songbirds, a spatially organized neuronal circuitry that mediates the acquisition, production and perception of complex learned vocalizations. This neural system is an outstanding model for studying vocal learning, brain steroid hormone action, brain plasticity and lateralization of brain function. [less ▲]

In a few years, safe and definitive solutions should be ready to manage large quantities of high-level radioactive waste. Deep geological repository involving a multibarrier system constitutes one of the most promising options to isolate such waste from the human environment. In order to provide reasonable assurance of the waste isolation efficiency, it is essential to understand the behaviour of the confining geomaterials under a variety of environmental conditions. In particular, variations in temperature and humidity are two main critical aspects in the short and medium term (i.e. several thousands of years). To this end, results from a near-to-real scale experiment were studied by means of a thermo-hydro-mechanical (THM) finite element approach including a consistent thermo-plastic constitutive model for unsaturated soils. This enabled a comprehensive understanding of the behaviour of the buffer material (bentonite). [less ▲]

Clinical research with the family has undergone relevant changes through time under an epistemological, theoretical, methodological and technical point of view. By rebuilding the main steps of such development, we will try to bring to the fore issues and problems that are at the centre of the present debate (researches untied from the theoretical model, mix-ups in logics between built-ups and levels of analysis, risks of over-interpretation on the basis of individual parameters) and the solutions put forward by those models that try and come back to a holistic vision of the family as research « object-subject ».

Alzheimer's disease is characterized by a progressive deterioration of various cognitive and behavioral abilities and it also has a health impact on the patients’ caregiver. Our aim was to determine the patient (and to a lesser extent the caregiver’s) characteristics that contribute most to the caregiver burden. We used the baseline data from the ICTUS study, a European longitudinal cohort of patients with mild to moderate AD. Data from 1091 patients and their caregivers has been used for analysis. Three principal components analyses were performed on variables from the domains of cognition, neuropsychiatric symptoms and daily function using MMSE plus ADAS-Cog, NPI and IADL subscores respectively. These were followed by a stepwise logistic regression to identify patient characteristics which best predict caregiver burden. The regression model (R2 = 0.35, p < .001) shows that the best explanatory variables are (1) neuropsychiatric symptoms (NPI), (2) difficulties in the IADL, (3) time taken by caregiving, (4) demographic variables such as caregiver’s age and patient sex and (5) severity of cognitive impairment. In conclusion, our results demonstrate that although the strongest determinant of the caregiver burden is behavioral disturbance, the impact of the degree of cognitive impairment on burden is also significant.

BACKGROUND: Persistent polyclonal B cell lymphocytosis (PPBL) is a rare condition characterized by increased IgM and large excess of B cells with an IgD(+) CD27(+) phenotype. In normal individuals, these cells play a central role in the defense against pneumococcal infection. So far, few studies have characterized humoral immune responses in PPBL patients. We therefore measured IgG directed against S. pneumoniae antigens in a 51 yr-old woman with PPBL before and after vaccination with a pneumococcal 23-valent polysaccharide vaccine. METHODS: Antibodies against pneumococcal antigens were measured first with an overall immunoassay using microplates coated with the 23-valent pneumococcal vaccine. A serotype-specific test was also performed according to the WHO consensus protocol. RESULTS: Despite a large number of IgD(+) CD27(+) cells, our patient had low baseline titers of IgG directed against pneumococcal antigens and did not significantly respond to a 23-valent polysaccharide vaccine against S. pneumoniae. On the contrary, she had good titers of IgG directed against tetanus toxoid. CONCLUSION: IgM(+) IgD(+) CD27(+) cells which accumulate in this patient with typical PPBL patient failed to perform IgG isotype switch after a polysaccharide vaccine. The potential mechanisms and relationships with the main features of PPBL are discussed. Further studies on a larger number of similar patients are needed. [less ▲]

La multiplication et l’internationalisation des transactions commerciales impliquent une plus grande mobilité des entreprises. Filialisations, délocalisations, création de succursales et d’agences, etc., tel est désormais le lot commun de la vie économique. Parallèlement aux migrations des personnes physiques, les déplacements de personnes morales suscitent, eux aussi, un vaste travail de réglementation, non plus seulement au niveau des structures étatiques, mais aussi sur un plan international, voire supranational. C’est cette question de la régulation des sociétés dans l’espace transnational qui constitue l’objet du présent ouvrage. Une première partie de l’ouvrage consiste à identifier les premières dispositions adoptées pour tenir compte de ce phénomène économique, à travers l’étude du droit international, aussi bien privé que public. Une seconde partie examine l’ensemble des règles adoptées au plan de la Communauté européenne dans le même domaine. Les auteurs s’attèlent à décomposer cet ensemble selon la source des dispositions en cause : droit primaire, droit dérivé, jurisprudence de la Cour de justice. Cet ouvrage est l'un des rares en langue française à présenter un panorama significatif des normes applicables à la question de la circulation des sociétés au-delà de leurs frontières d’origine et des problèmes qui en résultent.

Prebiotic isomaltooligosaccharide preparations contain α-D-glucooligosaccharides comprising isomaltooligosaccharides (IMOs) and non-prebiotic maltooligosaccharides (MOs). They are both glucose oligosaccharides characterized by their degree of polymerization (DP) value (from 2 to ~10), linkage types and positions (IMOs: α-(12, 3, 6 and in a lower proportion internal 14) linkages, Mos: -(14) linkages). Their structure is the key factor for their prebiotic potential. In order to determine and elucidate the exact structure of unknown IMOs and Mos, unambiguous assignments of 13C and 1H chemical shifts of commercial standards, representative of IMOs and Mos diversity, have been determined using optimized standard one and two-dimensional experiments such as 1H NMR, 13C NMR, APT and 1H-1H COSY, TOCSY, NOESY and 1H-13C heteronuclear HSQC, HSQC-TOCSY, and HMBC. Here we point out the differential effect of substitution by a glucose residue at different positions on chemical shifts of anomeric as well as ring carbons together with the effect of the reducing end configuration for low DP oligosaccharides and diasteroisotopic effect for H-6 protons. From this study, structural 13C specific spectral features can be identified as tools for structural analysis of isomaltooligosaccharides. [less ▲]
