Little by little, nanotechnology has emerged amid enormous anticipations and fantastic promises of new materials, aspiring to manipulate our world “atom by atom.” While these grand visions continue to capture the imaginations of various audiences—and continue to be contested, as well—nanotechnology has developed into more than that. During the last two decades, many research programs and industrial R&D expenditures have resulted in actual products and tangible innovations. Nanotechnology, it seems, is expanding. But what does it mean to say that nanotechnology is expanding? [less ▲]

Les lésions tendineuses représentent au sein d’une population sportive ou de travailleurs de force une proportion élevée des lésions de surcharge. Leur incidence atteint 30% des pathologies musculo-squelettiques ; la douleur limite régulièrement les capacités fonctionnelles et athlétiques (1). Actuellement, ces tendinopathies demeurent un défi thérapeutique car certaines évoluent selon un mode désespérément chronique en raison de leur caractère rebelle aux différentes thérapeutiques conservatrices classiques (anti-inflammatoires, rééducation, ondes de choc...). Les infiltrations de plasma riche en plaquettes (PRP) pourraient représenter une alternative espoir thérapeutique suite aux résultats de diverses expérimentations in vitro et animales (2). Les résultats favorables relatés par les médias sportifs contrastent parfois singulièrement avec les études cliniques. Le PRP ne figure plus sur la liste des produits dopants depuis janvier 2011 (www.wada-ama.org) contrairement aux produits sanguins labiles (3).Cette revue actualise le traitement des lésions tendineuses (épicondylite, tendinopathies de coiffe, patellaire et calcanéenne) ainsi que les fasciites plantaires par plasma riche en plaquettes (3). Etant donné le caractère récent de ce traitement dans le domaine médico-sportif, les études cliniques réalisées à ce jour n’ont pas confirmé les effets bénéfiques obtenus in vitro. Certaines études démontrent une amélioration de la symptomatologie suite au traitement par PRP, mais d’autres études apparaissent contradictoires. Cependant, il est communément admis qu’après l’infiltration, une (auto-)rééducation excentrique sous-maximale progressive améliore la qualité de la cicatrisation tendineuse. Le PRP initie un processus cicatriciel, secondairement développé par le vecteur des forces excentriques (4). L’avenir du PRP nécessite une standardisation de la procédure de recueillement permettant d’éviter la collecte des globules rouges et blancs pouvant être délétères au processus cicatriciel (chaque technique produit un PRP différent (5)), ainsi que la réalisation de protocoles standardisés permettant de comparer les futurs travaux. De plus, le type de tendon exercerait-il un effet sur la réponse de guérison ? Celle-ci serait-elle différente entre certains tendons volumineux (calcanéen, patellaire) et les autres (épicondyliens, coiffe des rotateurs...) ? Références: Kaux et al.

Depuis un an et à la suite de la demande de certains États, l’UNESCO a pris l’initiative de relancer le fonctionnement du Fonds international pour la promotion de la culture (FIPC), suspendu en 2006. Même si cette initiative semble être majeure pour les questions du développement culturel et de coopération culturelle internationale, elle suscite certaines interrogations évidentes relatives à l’utilité de la relance, aux implications politiques et institutionnelles de cette action et au rapport que le FIPC entretiendra avec la Convention sur la diversité des expressions culturelles et son Fonds international pour la diversité culturelle.

Il sera ici question de phénomènes réflexifs qui, au sein d’un texte littéraire, produisent des écarts sensibles et rompent le processus classique de la représentation du réel. Les cas rencontrés sont étonnamment divers, tant en ce qui concerne leur structure que les effets produits. C’est pourquoi l’on se propose de les classer en six catégories distinctes : réflexivité autotélique, réflexivité poétique, réflexivité linguistique, réflexivité de l’énonciateur, réflexivité conative et réflexivité référentielle.

Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), a prominent cause of airway morbidity in children, maintains an excessive hospitalization rate despite decades of research. Host factors are assumed to influence the disease severity. As a first step toward identifying the underlying resistance mechanisms, we recently showed that inbred mouse strains differ dramatically as regards their susceptibility to pneumonia virus of mice (PVM), the murine counterpart of RSV. PVM infection in mice has been shown to faithfully mimic the severe RSV disease in human infants. This study aimed at dissecting the remarkable PVM-resistance shown by the SJL/J strain. To characterize its genetic component, we assessed clinical, physiopathological, and virological resistance/susceptibility traits in large first (F1) and second (F2) generations obtained by crossing the SJL/J (resistant) and 129/Sv (susceptible) strains. Then, to acquire conclusive in vivo evidence in support of the hypothesis that certain radiosensitive hematopoietic cells might play a significant role in PVM-resistance, we monitored the same resistance/susceptibility traits in mock- and γ-irradiated SJL/J mice. Segregation analysis showed that (i) PVM-resistance is polygenic, (ii) the resistance alleles are recessive, and (iii) all resistance-encoding alleles are concentrated in SJL/J. Furthermore, there was no alteration of SJL/J PVM resistance after immunosuppression by γ-irradiation, which suggests that adaptive immunity is not involved. We conclude that host resistance to pneumoviruses should be amenable to genetic dissection in this mouse model and that radioresistant lung epithelial cells and/or alveolar macrophages may control the clinical severity of pneumovirus-associated lung disease.

This paper discusses challenges for competition authorities in the 21st century. Those challenges were identified on the basis of a statistical review of the articles published since January 2011 in five major antitrust law journals. The assumption underlying this literature review is that the topics that statistically attract the most the attention from contemporary antitrust scholars are those that will likely constitute the main challenges for 21st century competition authorities.

This paper presents a two-dimensional model of tension levelling using the Arbitrary Lagrangian Eulerian (ALE) approach. During the simulation, the ALE mesh remains globally fixed along the rolling direction. Therefore, the required number of finite elements is much smaller than in the Lagrangian case and smaller CPU times are obtained for the same accuracy on the results. The ALE model is first validated against a classical equivalent Lagrangian model. Then, both sets of numerical results are compared to experimental measurements from the pilot mill of ArcelorMittal Maizières R&D. [less ▲]

The present study deals with the effect of sodium hydroxide and sodium carbonate used as additives during oxidizing roasting of oolitic limonite iron concentrate and more precisely upon the change in its magnetic susceptibility. Further, the efficiency of Alkali Roast Acid Leach (ARAL) technology for dephosphorisation of the concentrate is compared with the case when sodium hydroxide was added in alkali leach after roasting. The treatment without additives in roasting resulted in obtaining iron concentrate with 58 % iron and 0.21 % phosphorus, while the ARAL approach yielded concentrate with 63 % iron and 0.09 % phosphorus. The influence of combination of coke as reducing agent and sodium hydroxide in roasting at 900°C is also investigated and results displayed in 3D form. The combination of ARAL with reductive roasting, grinding of the clinker to 80 % - 0,075 mm, flotation of the non-reacted coke and magnetic separation before and after the acid leach resulted in iron concentrate with 66 % iron and 0.05 % phosphorus. The study has shown that the application of the ARAL approach with low addition of alkalis followed by 10 to 15 minute acid leaching at ambient temperature could substantially reduce phosphorus, thus offering the possibility for efficient treatment of high phosphorus iron ores.

With its 4.7 km/km² of public roads, Southern Belgium (Wallonia) has one of the densest road network of Western Europe. This network as well as the observed increase in main game species populations (red deer, roe deer and wild boar) make Wallonia an interesting region for studying the patterns of traffic accidents caused by animals. Moreover, compared to most of European countries, no statistics are available for this area. To shed light on the current situation of wildlife roadkills, the police database of traffic accident statement was thoroughly investigated. Those statements concern accidents that occurred between 2006 and 2010. Each record includes date, time, species involved and information about the location of the accident event. Based on this dataset, we have analysed (i) composition and percentage of involved species, (ii) the consequence (material damages / bodily injuries), (iii) the spatial (type of roads, proximity to landscape features, ‘hot spot’ map) and (iv) temporal (daily, weekly and seasonal) distribution of animal-related accidents. In conclusion future research perspectives are presented. [less ▲]
