This paper describes a full scale fire test performed the 27th of February 2010 on a composite floor for analysing the possibility of tensile membrane action to develop when the unprotected steel beams in the central part of the floor are made of cellular beams. The natural fire was created by a wood crib fire load of 700 MJ/m2 and the 9 × 15 m floor survived the fire that peaked at 1000°C and lasted for 90 minutes. Blind predictions of the air temperature development by the software OZone and of the structural behaviour by the software SAFIR which proved quite satisfactory are also described. [less ▲]

On 7 and 8 December 2011, students, researchers, and conservationists with a vested interest in golden-headed lion tamarins (Leontopithecus chrysomelas; GHLTs) gathered at the State University of Santa Cruz (UESC; Ilhéus, Bahia, Brazil) for the symposium `Golden-Headed Lion Tamarin Research in the 21st Century: Recent Advances and Potential Areas of Future Research´ with the aim of sharing recent work and discussing potential future avenues for research. Within the last 5 years, several doctoral dissertations and masters theses were completed that focused on the biology, ecology, and/or conservation of GHLTs in addition to the ongoing work of established scientists who have devoted their professional lives to the study of this species and the Atlantic Forest. However, language barriers and the fact that many members of the GHLT community are based at institutions throughout the world have complicated widespread access to these results and collaborations among researchers. The primary goals of this symposium were to (1) promote the exchange of existing information, (2) contribute towards a better synchronization of research efforts, and (3) identify important steps for more efficient/ collaborative conservation efforts for GHLTs and their habitat. This symposium brought together 30 participants from 12 institutions in Brazil, Belgium and the USA and allowed for the dissemination of information to the global GHLT community, compilation of recent advances in research, and identification of gaps in knowledge of GHLT biology, ecology and conservation, which ultimately fostered discussions on how attendees could collaborate to fill knowledge gaps.

Aspergillus is damaged by polymorphonuclear neutrophils (PMNs) by means of nonoxidative and oxidative mechanisms, which may be affected by antifungal and antibacterial agents that patients with invasive pulmonary aspergillosis often receive. The pharmacodynamic interactions among deoxycholate amphotericin B (AMB), ciprofloxacin (CIP), and human PMNs against Aspergillus fumigatus growth are unknown. We therefore studied the interactions between 0.032 to 2.0 mug/ml of AMB, 0.1 to 50 mug/ml of CIP at a fixed AMB/CIP ratio of 1:3.125, and PMNs from six donors at an effector-to-target (E:T) ratio of 400:1 against a clinical A. fumigatus isolate using an XTT metabolic assay and the Bliss independence pharmacodynamic-interaction model. CIP exhibited no antifungal activity alone or in combination with PMNs. Synergy was found between AMB and PMNs, with interaction indices (II) of 0.06 to 0.21; the highest interaction of 21% +/- 3.6% was observed at 0.22 +/- 0.09 mug/ml of AMB. The AMB and CIP (AMB+CIP) combination was synergistic (II = 0.39) at low AMB concentrations and antagonistic (II = 1.39) at high AMB concentrations, with a maximal synergistic interaction of 16% +/- 3.7% observed at 0.16 +/- 0.08 mug/ml of AMB. The triple combination AMB+CIP+PMNs was synergistic, with interaction indices of 0.05 to 0.20, and a maximal synergistic interaction of 24% +/- 4% was observed at 0.20 +/- 0.07 mug/ml of AMB. The increased percentage of Bliss synergy of the triple combination AMB+CIP+PMNs (24% +/- 4%) was the product of those of the constituent double combinations AMB+PMNs (21% +/- 3.6%) and AMB+CIP (16% +/- 3.7%). Thus, the antifungal activity of AMB, at clinically relevant concentrations, was enhanced in combination with PMNs and CIP against A. fumigatus growth in a concentration-dependent manner. [less ▲]

The amphiphilic behavior of these different stars was confirmed by micellization experiments in water followed by dynamic light scattering and transmission electron microscopy analyses. The efficiency to stabilize PLA nanoparticles was investigated in function of the stars structure. [less ▲]

On the basis of synchronic and diachronic data analysis, the volume takes a close look at the synchronic layers of binominal size noun and type noun uses (a bunch/a load of X; a sort of X; a Y type of X) and reconsiders the framework of grammaticalization in view of issues raised by the phrases under discussion. As a result, a construction grammar-approach to grammaticalization is developed which does justice to the syntagmatic lexical, or collocational, reclustering observed in the data within an eclectic cognitive-functional approach.

Introduction: The study of normal structures of the sheep’s brain is very important to understand pathological changes caused by the bluetongue virus in the fetus’s brain at various stages of the gestation. Bluetongue is an arthropod-borne viral disease of domestic and wild ruminants. The serotype 8 is responsible for outbreaks in Northern Europe in 2006. This virus causes lesions in the brain of fetuses as hydrancephaly and porencephaly. The aim of this work is to improve knowledge of anatomy and histology of the central nervous system of the sheep. Methods: Seven heads of adult sheep and one from a fetus aged 4,5 months were used. All heads were first opened in the frontal area using bone’s saw and immerged in a formalin solution for 10 days. After a good fixation, the brains were extracted and sectioned. Transversal, frontal and sagittal sections were realized. The sections of two brains were stained with Berlin-blue and treated to be embedded in methylmetacrylate for gross morphology. The different parts of the 6 resting brains were then embedded in paraffin, cut and the histological sections were stained with haematoxylin/eosin, cresyl violet or by use of silver impregnation. Results: Gross morphological examination of the brains embedded in methylmetacrylate showed the detailed anatomy of the different parts. The staining with haematoxylin/eosin permitted to differentiate the grey matter, the different nucleus and the layers of cerebral and cerebellum cortex. The cresyl violet technique permitted to visualize the Nissl bodies and the silver impregnation revealed nerve fibers. In the fetus brain, blood vessels were very numerous in the brainstem, the cerebellum and the cerebrum. The grey matter was less organized and looser. Conclusion: This work establishes an anatomical and histological approach allowing future studies in ovine fetuses with and without brain lesions potentially caused by the bluetongue virus. [less ▲]

Surface-charged nanofibers were prepared by electrospinning technique (ESP). For this purpose, a copolymer bearing carboxylic acid functions was added to a poly(D,L-lactide) solution just before ESP process. In a basic medium, negative charges were therefore revealed on fiber surface. By deposition of positively charged particles or polyelectrolytes, surface properties of the fibers could be tailor-made for a specific application. This versatile method can, for example, be applied to the preparation of new biomedical scaffolds. [less ▲]

Hypertension is a common treatable risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Even when identified and treated, most patients with hypertension do not reach the blood pressure goal and they often need in fact three antihypertensive agents to achieve blood pressure control. Although various combinations of two therapies are currently available for the treatment of hypertension, development of more powerful therapies with 3 molecules is necessary to control more hypertensive patients. Amlodipine/Olmesartan/hydrochlorothiazide (Sevikar/HCT°) is a new triple combination of antihypertensive agents that lower blood pressure via calcium channel blockade, angiotensin receptor blockade and diuretic action. Its potent triple mechanism of action is also likely to attenuate compound-specific adverse events, such as amlodipine-related peripheral oedema or sartan-induced hyperkalemia. Moreover, by reducing the number of pills to be taken every day, the compliance should be better. Currently available data show that such a combination is very powerful and well-tolerated allowing more patients with all grades of hypertension (especially those with the most severe forms) to reach the blood pressure target. The contraindications are those of each compound. [less ▲]

This work is part of the research for appropriate methods for sustainable management of the sandy soils of the province of Kinshasa (Democratic Republic of Congo), in order to ensure and guarantee the adequate food security. It consists of a scientic research of the use of composts produced from household organic waste in improving the quality of sandy soils to the province of Kinshasa. The general objective pursued in this work is to evaluate the impact of four repeated applications of organic matter from bio-waste compost on chemical and biochemical parameters dynamics in acid sandy soils and their productivity. A pilot composting on a small scale has been installed for the production of composts from municipal solid waste and characterization of composts obtained has revealed the agronomic potential that presents this material. The diagnosis of the condition agropedological soils revealed that soils of the three study sites are sandy classified as rubics arenoferrasols (dystrics), have excellent physical conditions for drainage, air circulation and root penetration possess variables charges colloids, show an acid reaction, low organic matter and low nutrient minerals contents. In addition, their water and nutrients retentions capacity are very limited, and are the main soil constraints to agricultural productivity of these soils. After four growing seasons in real environments, the study of the reaction with the soil organic amendments (20, 40, 60 t.ha-1 MB) gave satisfactory results. The provision of continuous additions of organic composts significantly increased the values of pH, TOC, CEC, SB eff and reduced the rate of exchangeable Al saturation in the three sites. With the highest dose T3 (60 t.ha-1 MB), the pH increased at least 0.8 units and the carbon content multiplied by 2.5 to 3 on the three sites. CEC values increased from 3.3 to 5.02 cmol(+)mg.kg-1 and the toxic aluminum saturation decreased more effective than 90%. Regarding biochemical parameters (microbial carbon & nitrogen, RB, RIS, APA, Unt, Ut), compost treatments induced a significant improvement in function and doses applied throughout the experiment. These contributions have induced microbial activity which contributed to the increase in soil nutrients (N, P, ...) by microbiological activities. The availability of nutrients and fourniture of carbon by the composts explain these increases. In addition, yields on different test plants (Glycine max L. Merr, Arachis hypogaea L. and Hibiscus sabbariffa L.) were positively influenced by the treatments of organic composts household wastes. Compared with mineral fertilizers, their fertilizing potential is not negligible. According to the results observed, doses ≥ 40 t.ha MB-1 should be to keep and maintain an acceptable level of fertility and yields potentiel of crops. But low doses were more efficient than high doses of agronomic point of view. Doses ≤ 20 t.ha-1 MB are recommended in annual crop and regular. Phosphorus was found to be the most limiting element to agricultural production of soil sites studied whatever of the types of amendments and cultures used. Finally, the study indicates that for reasons of efficiency, availability and funds increased production may be obtained through synergy between the composts used in small quantities and fertilizer mineral supplements.
