Semantic hyperpriming has consistently been found in normal aging. However, <br />because the standard instructions to test semantic priming are generally ambiguous <br />(focusing on both accuracy and speed), it is difficult to account for hyperpriming in <br />older adults. By using the direct and mediated priming paradigms, this study investigates <br />whether older adults’ response mode at testing may explain hyperpriming. First, we <br />show that, under identical conditions, inducing a response mode that favors speed leads <br />to greater priming effects in older adults. The pattern of results is similar to what is <br />observed under standard instructions. Second, prompting a response mode that favors <br />accuracy leads to greater priming effects in younger adults. We discuss various explanations <br />for these findings and conclude, in accordance with the Ratcliff, Thapar, <br />Gomez, and McKoon (2004a) diffusion model, that hyperpriming in normal aging is <br />contingent on older adults’ response mode at testing.

The relationship between the EU and the Latin-American region belongs to the logics of interregionalism. This article approaches this relation especially in what the Latin-American integration is concerned. In this way, in a first moment, a conceptual panorama (from the academic implications of region, regionalism and interregionalism, among others) is offered. By the means of the documentary method, the existence of an EU’s interregional strategy and its possible Americanization was verified. The obtained results showed: the existence of the UE interregional strategy as well as its concretization in the negotiation of the Free Trade Agreement (FTA) EU – CAN. The two major conclusions of this article were: First, there is a slight Americanization of this interregional European strategy. The second conclusion is that a deepening of the international presence of Europe as regional actor is observed. It means the deepening of the EU’s soft power. [less ▲]

External Quality Assessment (EQA) schemes are national or transnational programmes designed to control the analytical performance of clinical laboratories and to maintain inter-laboratory variability within acceptable limits. In such EQA programmes, participants are usually grouped by the type of assay technique/equipment they use. The coefficient of variation (CV) is a simple tool for comparing the inter-laboratory reproducibility of such techniques: the lower the CV, the better the analytical performance. Serum protein electrophoresis, a laboratory test profile consisting of five fractions (albumin, α1, α2, β and γ globulins) summing up to 100% of total proteins, can also be assayed in different ways depending on the media or the analytical principle. We propose a multivariate coefficient of variation for comparing the performance of electrophoretic techniques in EQA, thus extending the univariate CV concept. First, the compositional nature of electrophoretic data requires a one-to-one transformation from the 5-dimensional to the 4-dimensional space. Next, robust estimations of the mean and the covariance matrix are needed to avoid the effect of outliers. The new approach is illustrated on electrophoretic datasets from the French and Belgian national EQA programmes. [less ▲]

Mechanical loading is a major regulator of bone mass and geometry. The osteocytes network is considered the main sensor of loads, through the shear stress generated by strain induced fluid flow in the lacuno-canalicular system. Intracellular transduction implies several kinases and phosphorylation of the estrogen receptor. Several extra-cellular mediators, among which NO and prostaglandins are transducing the signal to the effector cells. Disuse results in osteocytes apoptosis and rapid imbalanced bone resorption, leading to severe osteoporosis. Exercising during growth increases peak bone mass, and could be beneficial with regards to osteoporosis later in life, but the gain could be lost if training is abandoned. Exercise programs in adults and seniors have barely significant effects on bone mass and geometry at least at short term. There are few data on a possible additive effect of exercise and drugs in osteoporosis treatment, but disuse could decrease drugs action. Exercise programs proposed for bone health are tedious and compliance is usually low. The most practical advice for patients is to walk a minimum of 30 to 60 minutes per day. Other exercises like swimming or cycling have less effect on bone, but could reduce fracture risk indirectly by maintaining muscle mass and force. [less ▲]

In the frame of the present study, the influence of liquid viscosity on liquid holdup distribution in a packed column equipped with the modular catalytic packing Katapak-SP 11 is measured. Water and an aqueous solution of glycerine, the viscosity of which equals 10 cP, are used as feed liquids. The estimation of liquid holdup is of great interest due to its strong influence on pressure drop, on solid wetting and on heat and mass transfer coefficients. The experimental technique used is high energy X-ray tomography, which is a unique technique to visualize the local liquid distribution inside the complex structure of packings and to quantify the liquid holdup at different scales.

We study the influence of artificial pinning centers on the vortex critical velocity in Al thin films deposited on top of a periodic array of Permalloy (FeNi) square rings. We demonstrate that the field dependence of the flux flow velocity strongly depends on the particular magnetic state of the rings. In particular, we find that, even when the rings are in a flux closure state, i.e. with little stray field, the vortex critical velocity shows a non-monotonic magnetic field dependence. This behaviour is in sharp contrast with the results obtained in a reference plain film, with no rings underneath. A comparison with the intrinsic strong pinning Nb films previously studied, suggests an interpretation in terms of a channel-like motion of vortices, here induced by the artificial pinning structure.

Malignant melanoma (MM), particularly its fast-growing type, is prone to interstitial, intravascular and extravascular migratory metastases. There is no information linking their growth fraction, the configuration of the MM advancing edge, the extent in vascularity and the propensity to metastatic progression. The objective of this study was to determine the growth fraction, the size of vascularity and the contours of the progression border of 32 fast-growing MM with regard to the presence or absence of a micrometastatic spread inside the skin and overt metastases in the sentinel lymph nodes. In vivo high resolution colorimetry was performed as a clinical estimate of MM vascularity. Euclidean geometry and fractal analysis were used on immunohistochemical sections. The relative microvasculature profile area beneath MM, and the fractal dimension D of the MM frontline were assessed. The MIB/Ki-67 index was determined in MM cells. Value a* of colorimetry was similarly increased in the presence or absence of micro-metastases. No difference in growth fraction was revealed between these neoplasms. Correlations were found between vascularity and angiotropism, and between the micrometastatic process and the sentinel lymph node involvement. By contrast, no correlation was shown between vascularity and the fractal D dimension of the MM advancing edge. In sum, this study establishes a link between the extent of MM growth fraction, vascularity and the presence of dermal and nodal micrometastases in fast-growing MM. [less ▲]

Le débat sur l’assurance dans le secteur de la construction s’est trouvé sérieusement relancé à la suite de l’arrêt prononcé par la Cour constitutionnelle le 12 juillet 2007 . Cette décision constitue la toile de fond de toute réflexion, non seulement quant au caractère – obligatoire ou facultatif – de l’assurance dans ce secteur, mais également quant aux contours que ce régime devrait adopter. Certaines initiatives ont du reste été déjà entreprises pour donner corps à un réforme du régime actuel ; une proposition de loi « relative à l’assurance responsabilité professionnelle des entrepreneurs de travaux immobiliers » vient ainsi d’être déposée très récemment au Sénat . La présente contribution fait le point sur cette question sensible. Après une analyse de l’arrêt du 12 juillet 2007, l'étude dégage les enseignements de cette décision du point de vue du devenir de l’assurance dans le secteur de la construction en droit belge. Enfin, quelques propositions pour une réforme du régime actuel sont formulées, et sont illustrées par un bref examen comparatif de la situation existant dans d’autres Etats membres de l’Union Européenne.

Breast cancer is the most frequent neoplastic disease in women representing 50,000 new cases each year in France. The well-established risk factors, as those related to the reproductive history, cannot account for all cases of breast cancer. Other environmental or lifestyle factors need to be explored in depth. Persistent organochlorine compounds (OCs) have attracted attention because of their endocrine disrupting properties that make them possible risk factors for breast cancer, but most epidemiological studies did not report an association between OC concentrations in blood or adipose tissue and breast cancer risk. In these studies, OC levels were measured in biological samples obtained at the time of cancer diagnosis or only a few years before. In this paper, we review the studies on dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT) and polychlorobiphenyl (PCB) exposures in relation to breast cancer. We discuss the relevance of OC biological measurements as lifelong exposure indicators, and we describe a new method for assessing exposure to OCs in epiderniological studies. Most studies were carried out recently and reported OC concentrations that were substantially lower than those reported during the 1960s and 1970s. We make the assumption that these OC levels were not reliable indicators, as they were not measured during etiologically relevant periods in a woman's lifetime, i.e. during the prenatal period, the puberty or the period before a first full-term pregnancy, which are regarded as key periods of vulnerability of mammary gland cells to carcinogens. This may have resulted in non differential exposure misclassification and hence in the absence of an observed association between OC levels and breast cancer in most epidemiological studies. Physiologically-based pharmacokinetic (PBPK) models allow estimating persistent organic pollutant lifetime toxicokinetics profiles retrospec- tively in women, by taking into account individual differences in metabolism and key events that affect OC kinetics such as lactation and weight variations. PBPK models will be applied to the participants of a large French population-based case-control study including 1080 cases and 1055 controls. Exposure misclassification could have prevented from observing an association between exposure to OCs and breast cancer risk. PBPK models could be used as a novel way of assessing exposure to OCs and to investigate the impact of internal exposure at different time windows on breast cancer incidence. [less ▲]
