SYNOPSIS: Skin colours are notoriously different between individuals. They are governed by ethnicities and phototypes, and further influenced by a variety of factors including photoexposures and sustained mechanical stress. Indeed, mechanobiology is a feature affecting the epidermal melanization. High-resolution epiluminescence colorimetry helps in deciphering the effects of forces generated by Langer's lines or relaxed skin tension lines on the melanocyte activity. The same procedure shows a prominent laddering pattern of melanization in striae distensae contrasting with the regular honeycomb pattern in the surrounding skin. [less ▲]

Its broad, disjunct distribution, ranging from Macaronesia to eastern Africa, is consistent with the fragmentation of the evergreen tropical forests that dominated Europe and North Africa in the Tertiary.

Assessment of daily living activities is essential in patients with Alzheimer's disease. Most current tools quantitatively assess overall ability but provide little qualitative information on individual difficulties. Only a few tools allow therapists to evaluate stereotyped activities and record different types of errors. We capitalised on the Kitchen Activity Assessment to design a widely applicable analysis grid that provides both qualitative and quantitative data on activity performance. A cooking activity was videotaped in 15 patients with dementia and assessed according to the different steps in the execution of the task. The evaluations obtained with our grid showed good correlations between raters, between versions of the grid and between sessions. Moreover, the degree of independence obtained with our analysis of the task correlated with the Kitchen Activity Assessment score and with a global score of cognitive functioning. We conclude that assessment of a daily living activity with this analysis grid is reproducible and relatively independent of the therapist, and thus provides quantitative and qualitative information useful for both evaluating and caring for demented patients.

This study investigated the differences in pharmacokinetic, urodynamic and haemodynamic parameters in female Beagle dogs in which blood sampling and urethral pressure profiles were performed over 24 h periods, after single or three times daily (T0-T6h-T12h) administration of phenylpropanolamine (PPA). Maximal concentration (Cmax) was reached 2 h after PPA administration (Tmax). The half-life lasted 4 h and, because of bioaccumulation, three times daily administration induced an increase in Cmax. Compared to the control group, a significant increase in urethral resistance was observed at Tmax after 1 week of once daily administrations. After one week of administering PPA every 6 h during the daytime, but not during the night, and despite higher plasma concentrations, the urethral resistance did not increase at any time, compared to the control group. The increase in mean arterial pressure values was compensated by a decreased heart rate. The clinical efficacy of the temporary increase in urethral resistance following single daily administration of PPA in dogs suffering from urethral sphincter mechanism incompetence (USMI) needs to be further investigated in a randomised clinical trial.

Plus de cinquante ans après leur mise sur le marché, les sulfamidés hypoglycémiants font toujours partie du traitement de base du diabète non insulinodépendant. A côté de leurs remarquables propriétés pharmacologiques, ces produits ont, à différentes reprises, été tenus responsables d’hypoglycémies sévères survenant de manière inexpliquée chez des sujets non diabétiques. Ce type d’hypoglycémie, qualifiée de factice, est notamment fréquemment retrouvée dans le syndrome de Munchausen, trouble psychiatrique poussant le malade à mimer une pathologie. Cette hypoglycémie est associée à un hyperinsulinisme endogène simulant une pathologie endocrine très rare, l’insulinome. Nous souhaitons faire connaître aux Cliniciens l’intérêt de la recherche et du dosage sanguin des sulfamidés hypoglycémiants dans le cadre du diagnostic différentiel des hyperinsulinismes. La mise en évidence d’une hypoglycémie induite par ces médicaments constitue un élément intéressant pour orienter le diagnostic et éventuellement éviter une pancréatectomie en cas de forte suspicion d’insulinome. La méthode analytique développée au laboratoire s’appuie sur la chromatographie liquide ultra performante couplée à la spectrométrie de masse tandem (UPLC -MS -MS ). Par cette technique, on peut mettre en évidence dans le sang une dizaine de sulfonylurées et le répaglinide. Elle constituera à l’avenir une méthode de choix face à toute suspicion de mésusage des sulfonylurées. [less ▲]

Equine gammaherpesviruses (cEHV) have been widely studied over the past 45 years and many isolates have been characterised. Despite this, the diagnosis of cEHV infection remains difficult to establish as its clinical manifestations lack specificity, ranging from mild respiratory signs in a small number of animals to outbreaks in large groups of young horses. This review focuses on the epidemiology, pathogenesis, clinical manifestations and diagnosis of equine herpesvirus (EHV)-2 and -5 infections, as well as on the genetic variation of these viruses. Study of these variations has resulted in hypotheses relating to viral re-infection and re-activation. Interestingly, the viruses were found to contain genetic sequences identical to those of eukaryotic cells which are considered central to the development of viral latency through interfering with host immune and inflammatory responses. Future molecular biological studies will further elucidate the virulence mechanisms of these equine pathogens [less ▲]

The continued downscaling of the metal-oxide semiconductor (MOS) transistor for sub-22 nm logic circuits with boosted performance will require the introduction of new channel materials with carrier mobility higher than that of Si, such as Ge for pMOS. The use of III-V compounds for nMOS devices poses however additional challenges related to the hetero-epitaxial growth of a polar semiconductor on a non-polar surface. Furthermore, these high-mobility materials have to be fabricated on large-area Si substrates, in the perspective of application in a standard low-cost very-large-scale integration scheme. In this work, we report on the successful growth of GaAs on 200 mm Si wafers by means of metal-organic vapor deposition using a modified Crius Close-Coupled Showerhead system from AIXTRON AG. We used Si (100) wafers with off-axis orientation (6° miscut towards <111>) in order to avoid the formation of anti-phase domains which lead to Ga-Ga and As-As bonds at their boundaries that have strong detrimental effects on the electrical conduction. In our approach, based on Ge virtual substrates with low threading dislocation (TD) density, the lattice mismatch between Si and GaAs is accommodated and, thus, no additional TD is introduced in the deposited III-V film. Our results show that smooth GaAs layers can be epitaxially grown on large-area Si substrates with high wafer-scale thickness uniformity. The excellent quality of the deposited GaAs was confirmed by photoluminescence and electron microscopy. Our process also demonstrates very high selectivity on patterned wafers with SiO2 mask and enabled the fabrication of capacitor structures using an integration process flow very similar to standard high volume Si manufacturing lines. The capacitance-voltage characteristics were similar to the ones obtained on a bulk GaAs substrate, and showed extremely tight within-wafer and wafer-to-wafer distributions as is standard to Si manufacturing.

Dans nos sociétés sécularisées, le politique et le religieux occupent des sphères séparées et l'irruption des signes religieux dans l'espace public suscite régulièrement des débats passionnés. Le présent dossier entend replacer la question des relations entre politique et religion dans une perspective historique et critique. Quelques moments-clés de cette interaction ont été privilégiés, de l'Antiquité à nos jours : les polythéismes grec et romain où politique et religieux sont enchevêtrés ; les débuts du christianisme où l'adhésion volontaire à une profession de foi change la donne ; la période moderne, où la réflexion philosophique, d'une part, et l'émergence des États européens, d'autre part, questionnent la place de l'Église dans la cité ; la relation entre islam et politique, remise en perspective dans une comparaison avec le christianisme ; la définition du fait d'être « laïque » aujourd'hui. Un tel parcours historique permet de nourrir la réflexion sur des enjeux contemporains, en leur donnant une profondeur de champ qui a le mérite de relativiser les positions. [less ▲]
