The large proportion of sandy soils of Thua Thien Hue, in Central Vietnam, present a particular habitat for soil-inhabiting organisms among which earthworms represent close to 70% of total biomass. This study identified relationships between the characteristics of soil and earthworms. Our inventories yielded the presence of seven species of earthworms belonging to the families Glossoscolecidae, Megascolecidae and Microchaetidae. These were: Pontoscolex corethrurus, Glyphidrilus papillatus, Pheretima rodericensis, Pheretima danangana, Pheretima sp., Perionyx excavatus, and Lampito mauritii. Those of the Microchaetidae were present in acid soils with a high rate of silt and clay. Species in the other families were associated with poor but less acid sandy soils. This study also showed that the number of P. corethrurus was significantly higher in orchards while L. mauritii was significantly more common in soils with cultures other than rice. The species G. papillatus was significantly more abundant in fallow and was the only species found in this habitat. Highest earthworm diversity (Shannon-Wiener index(H=0.97)) was found in crops like manioc and sweat potatoes rather than in rice. [less ▲]

The aim of this essay is to identify and to analyze some key aspects of Husserl’s critique of Natorp’s psychology in the fifth Logical Investigation. After dividing Husserl’s argumentation into four main objections, we show that what is at stake in all of them is the idea of an empirical psychology in Brentano’s style. From that perspective we comment two of the most significant questions raised by the Husserl-Natorp debate: the nature of the difference between psychical and physical, the possibility of objectifying phenomenal contents. We then attempt to clarify in what sense Husserl’s and Natorp’s answers to these two questions are diametrically opposed. We conclude by some remarks on the intrinsic weaknesses of Natorp’s approach.

Aim To explore the occurrence and the distribution of glucose excursions > 7.8 mmol/l by continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) in non-diabetic patients admitted with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Methods Twenty-one non-diabetic patients without baseline hyperglycaemia admitted for ACS wore a continuous glucose monitoring system (CGMS) for a median period of 45.6 h. Occurrence and 24-h distribution of time spent with blood glucose > 7.8 mmol/l (TS > 7.8) were retrospectively investigated. Results CGMS data disclosed time spent > 7.8 in 17 patients, whereas only seven of them showed at least one capillary blood glucose test value above the threshold for the same time period. Glucose excursions were detectable earlier from CGMS data. Hyperglycaemia was detected most frequently in the morning, more than 2 h after breakfast. Conclusions CGM discloses early and frequent hyperglycaemia in non-diabetic patients with ACS. Intensive glucose monitoring during the morning time period is the most efficient in screening for hyperglycaemia and could be a valuable guide to initiating insulin therapy and to further investigate outcomes in ACS.

L’article propose une réévaluation du texte « Matinée d’ivresse » (extrait d’Illuminations) d’Arthur Rimbaud. Après un retour sur la thématique haschischine qui traverse le poème, on s’attache à démontrer, par une lecture sociocritique, qu’en fait d’ode à la drogue, ce texte est une diatribe fustigeant, en les parodiant, certains poètes autrefois fréquentés par Rimbaud. En plus de cette lecture ponctuelle, l’article se veut programmatique et appelle à une relecture du dernier recueil rimbaldien à l’aune de cette dimension parodique, et, plus largement, prône une méthodologie socio-littéraire pour explorer l’œuvre du poète.

Post-dispersal fate of seeds dispersed by large primates is well studied but little is known about this process in small frugivores like tamarins. This study in the Amazonian forest of Peru aimed at investigating if characteristics related to the defecation patterns of tamarins (Saguinus mystax and Saguinus fuscicollis) affected short-term post-dispersal seed fate, through secondary seed dispersal by dung beetles and removal by seed predators. Data on dung beetle activity were based on direct observations of 49 defecations while seed fate was studied using semi-controlled experiments (N = 458 for secondary dispersal and N = 398 for predation). Tamarins produce small defecations with a low number of seeds. Thirty-five per cent of defecations were visited by an average of 1.5 dung beetles that usually transport the faeces as pellets. Twenty-four per cent of seeds were buried by beetles at a mean depth of 3.5 cm. With increasing quantities of faecal matter, the probability of secondary seed dispersal increased but not the depth of burial. Seed predation pressure was low (17.6%) after 4 d and higher in faeces of S. mystax than in faeces of S. fuscicollis. Despite their small size, tamarins could be considered as high-quality seed dispersers, with a potential role for forest regeneration. [less ▲]

Aim: This study assesses the impact of serum carboxy-terminal collagen crosslinks (CTX) bone marker feedback (BMF) on adherence to ibandronate treatment in Asian postmenopausal women with osteoporosis. Methods: This was a 12-month (6-monthly phased), randomized, prospective, open-label, multi-center study conducted in 596 (of 628 enrolled) postmenopausal women with osteoporosis (£ 85 years old) who were naı¨ve, lapsed, or current bisphosphonate users. Patients were randomized into two arms: serum CTX BMF at 3 months versus no-BMF. Once-monthly 150 mg ibandronate tablet was administered for 12 months and adherence to therapy was assessed at 6 and 12 months. In addition, patient satisfaction and safety of ibandronate treatment were also assessed. Results: Serum CTX BMF at 3 months showed no impact on adherence. The proportions of adherent patients were comparable in the BMF versus no-BMF arms (92.6% vs. 96.0%, P = 0.16); overall, serum CTX levels were similar for adherent and non-adherent patients. However, BMF patients felt more informed about their osteoporosis (P < 0.001) and more satisfied (P < 0.01) than no-BMF patients. Conclusions: The Asian postmenopausal osteoporosis patients in this study had a high adherence rate to once-monthly ibandronate therapy. Use of serum CTX BMF had no further impact on increasing adherence, but increased treatment satisfaction. [less ▲]

We used principal component analysis to decompose functional images of patients with AD in orthogonal ensembles of brain regions with maximal metabolic covariance. Three principal components explained 38% of the total variance in a large sample of FDG-PET images obtained in 225 AD patients. One functional ensemble (PC2) included limbic structures from Papez's circuit (medial temporal regions, posterior and anterior cingulate cortex, thalamus); its disruption in AD patients was related to episodic memory impairment. Another principal component (PC1) illustrated major metabolic variance in posterior cerebral cortices, and patients' scores were correlated to instrumental functions (language and visuospatial abilities). PC3 comprised frontal, parietal, temporal and posteromedial (posterior cingulate and precuneus) cortices, and patients' scores were related to executive dysfunction and global cognitive impairment. The three main metabolic covariance networks converged in the posterior cingulate area that showed complex relationships with medial temporal structures within each PC. Individual AD scores were distributed as a continuum along PC axes: an individual combination of scores would determine specific clinical symptoms in each patient. [less ▲]

Any disorder impairing a performance horse’s ability to ventilate its lungs and exchange oxygen compromises exercise performance in any discipline. Since bronchoalveolar lavage was described in horses in the early 1980s, laboratory evaluation of respiratory fluids, along with clinical and functional assessment of the respiratory system, has become a relevant step in the diagnosis of respiratory disease affecting performance. The aim of this review is to provide objective information to assist clinicians in interpreting laboratory findings by (1) summarising published cytological references values in both clinically healthy horses and those with various airway diseases, (2) assessing the influence of physiological circumstances, such as exercise, on the cytological evaluation, (3) discussing the relationship between cytological and microbiological analyses, clinical signs and respiratory function, and (4) suggesting how this latter relationship may affect performance.

Preeclampsia (PE) is a pregnancy-specific syndrome characterized by hypertension, proteinuria and edema, which resolves on placental delivery. It is thought to be the consequence of impaired placentation due to inadequate trophoblastic invasion of the maternal spiral arteries. In PE the maternal plasma concentration of free vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and placental growth factor (PlGF) is decreased whereas the concentration of soluble fms-like tyrosine kinase-1 (sFlt-1) and of soluble endoglin (sEng) is increased. These soluble receptors may bind VEGF, PLGF and TGFβ1 and TGFβ3 in the maternal circulation, causing endothelial dysfunction in many maternal tissues. Hence there is a view that the pathogenesis is more or less clarified. According to the vascular theory, poor placentation leads to poor uteroplacental perfusion and hypoxia, which stimulates sFlt-1 and sEng production causing the maternal syndrome. This assumption has been recently challenged. The role of hypoxia as the main stimulus for release of sFlt-1 has been questioned and the role of inflammatory mechanisms has been emphasized. According to this inflammatory theory, poor placentation may predispose more to placental oxidative stress than hypoxia and endothelial dysfunction may be part of a broader disorder of systemic inflammation. Finally, the recent demonstration of activating auto-antibodies to the angiotensin 1 receptor that experimentally play a major pathogenic role in PE further suggests a pleiotropism of aetiologies for this condition. The purpose of this review is to critically evaluate the recent hypotheses and their possible insights on early diagnosis, prevention and treatment. [less ▲]

This paper presents results from measurements of the magnetization, specific heat and dielectric constant, and their temperature and magnetic field dependence, for HoMnO3 single crystals. The results are discussed in the framework of existing data on magnetic symmetries and the interactions between the Mn-spins, the rare earth moments, and the lattice. From the resulting data, the magnetic phase diagram of HoMnO3 was built. [less ▲]

Type VII mucopolysaccharidosis is a very rare recessive lysosomal storage disease. We diagnosed a type VII MPS in a case of severe fetal hydrops after pregnancy termination at 23 weeks of gestation. The diagnosis was suspected on histopathological examination by the presence of foam cells in many viscera and foamy placental Hofbauer cells. Enzyme assay on cultured amniotic cells showed a markedly deficient beta-glucuronidase activity, thus confirming the diagnosis. This report shows the importance of a precise necropsy diagnosis in nonimmune hydrops because of putative implications for genetic counseling and prenatal diagnosis in subsequent pregnancies.
