Kicked atoms under a constant Stark or gravity field are investigated for experimental setups with cold and ultracold atoms. The parametric stability of the quantum dynamics is studied using the fidelity. In the case of a quantum resonance, it is shown that the behavior of the fidelity depends on arithmetic properties of the gravity parameter. Close to a quantum resonance, the long-time asymptotics of the fidelity is studied by means of a pseudoclassical approximation introduced by Fishman et al. [J. Stat. Phys. 110, 911 (2003)]. The long-time decay of fidelity arises from the tunneling out of pseudoclassical stable islands, and a simple ansatz is proposed which satisfactorily reproduces the main features observed in numerical simulations.

Suite à un appel d’offre lancé par le contrat de rivière « Haute-Sûre », dans le cadre de l’initiative communautaire INTERREG IV Grande Région et du projet « PACTE Haute-Sûre », le CEBEDEAU a réalisé en collaboration avec l'Aquapôle la mise en œuvre et le suivi d’un réseau de mesure transfrontalier de la qualité physico-chimique des cours d’eau du bassin de la Haute-Sûre belgo luxembourgeoise. Pour ce faire, la mission a été découpée en 3 grandes phases : 1) choix des points de mesure devant faire partie du réseau, des éléments à analyser ; 2) collecte et analyses des échantillons ; 3) traitement des données : inclusion dans une base de données, évaluation de la qualité des eaux, interprétation des résultats et fourniture d’éléments permettant l’évaluation du risque de non atteinte du bon état [less ▲]

CD8(+) regulatory T cells (Treg) and CD4(+)CD25(+) Treg infiltrate human cancers, thus favoring tumor immune escape. Therefore, in the setting of antitumor therapeutic protocols, it is important to associate antitumor treatment with agents that are able to inhibit Treg function. Cyclophosphamide (CY) has been demonstrated to be effective in counteracting CD4(+)CD25(+) Treg activity. Hence, we tested its inhibitory efficacy on human CD8(+) Treg. Because CY is a prodrug, 4-hydroperoxycyclophosphamide (4-HC), a derivative of CY that in aqueous solution is converted to 4-hydroxycyclophosphamide, an active metabolite of CY, was used. 4-HC significantly inhibited CD8(+) Treg generation and function but only at the higher tested concentration (0.5 μg/mL), that is, in the therapeutic range of the drug. The lower 4-HC concentration tested (0.1 μg/mL) was almost ineffective. 4-HC inhibitory effects were related to apoptosis/necrosis induction. When CD8(+)CD28(+) non-Treg were analyzed for comparative purposes, significantly lower cytotoxic rates among these cells were observed than among CD8(+) Treg, which were differentiated because they did not express the CD28 molecule. These data demonstrate that CD8(+) Treg are inhibited through cytotoxic phenomena by CY, thus supporting the use of this drug at adequate concentrations and schedules of administration as a Treg inhibitor in combinatorial chemo- or immunotherapeutic anticancer protocols.

The aim of the present contribution is: (1) to review CBS in terms of structural classification based on their molecular size (mono-, oligo-, polymeric surfactants), geometry (standard, bipolar or bolaform, and gemini surfactants), and the nature of the polar headgroup (charged or not, cyclic or not), the apolar tail (number and length of alkyl chain), and the linker (amide, ester, ...) and/or the spacer; (2) to present systematically results on structure- activity relationships of uronic acid derivatives (UADs), a particular class of carbohydrate-based surfactants. These concern the impact of each structural entity including the polar headgroup (stereochemistry), apolar tail (chain length, number, and unsaturation), and linkage/spacer, on the performance of UADs to change surface properties, and possibly, to form and stabilize colloidal systems.

REASONS FOR PERFORMING STUDY: Sarcoids are the commonest form of equine skin tumour. Several therapeutic measures have been described but none is considered to be universally effective. Electrochemotherapy (ECT) is a new anticancer therapy that utilises electrical field pulses to induce increased cell membrane permeability to antitumour hydrophilic drugs, such as cisplatin. The increased intracellular concentration of the drugs has a significant therapeutic benefit. The procedure has not been previously reported in a large number of horses. OBJECTIVE: To validate ECT as a novel alternative treatment for equine sarcoids. METHODS: A retrospective study evaluating the efficacy of cisplatin ECT in the treatment of equine sarcoids was performed. Electrochemotherapy treatments were applied under general anaesthesia at 2 week intervals with or without prior excision or debulking. Electric pulses were directly applied to the lesions following intra-tumoural injections of an aqueous solution of cisplatin. RESULTS: One-hundred-and-ninety-four sarcoids on 34 horses, 2 ponies, 11 donkeys and one mule were treated with ECT. The 4 year nonrecurrence rate was 97.9% for animals (47/48) and 99.5% (193/194) for tumours. When ECT was used as a single treatment, a significant influence of tumour size (ρ= 0.55) on the number of treatments required for cure was shown. When prior surgery was performed, there was a significant influence (P<0.001) of the excision quality (complete or incomplete) and the healing mode (closed or open wound) on the number of treatments. The most common adverse effect was a slight oedematous reaction for lesions located on thin skin regions. CONCLUSION AND CLINICAL RELEVANCE: Results demonstrate that ECT, with or without concurrent tumour debulking, is an effective alternative for treatment of equine sarcoids [less ▲]

L’expression «art public» désigne l’ensemble des oeuvres d’art qui ont été commandées, planifiées et exécutées en vue d’être placées dans un espace public. Partant de cette définition sommaire, on pourrait être tenté d’établir une différence entre un art public de commande et un art public plus sauvage : d’un côté, une instance publique souhaite qu’un artiste produise une oeuvre reflétant l’état d’esprit d’un environnement urbain donné et de ses habitants ; de l’autre, les artistes font des percées intempestives dans le paysage visuel de la ville – et ce, sans qu’on leur ait rien demandé. Cette distinction servirait une stratégie sans doute grossière visant à séparer au sein de l’espace public art de convenance et art subversif. Là où les uns essaieraient de rencontrer les goûts normés du citoyen moyen, les autres prendraient au contraire le risque de la désapprobation en déstabilisant les codes en vigueur et les normes esthétiques. Mais cette opposition entre art de convenance et art subversif constitue probablement un cliché grotesque. Aussi adoptera-t-on un point de vue plus fécond en montrant plutôt les contiguïtés entre l’art de commande et de l’art sauvage. Dans un cas comme dans l’autre, dès que les oeuvres d’art sont publiques, elles posent des problèmes spécifiques. Quels que soient les objectifs qui l’animent, dès qu’il franchit les murs de l’institution, du musée ou de la galerie, l’artiste prend un risque considérable. Et au fond, que sa proposition artistique soit autorisée ou illégale, d’un certain point de vue, le risque demeure. C’est ce qu’il s’agira ici d’identifier. [less ▲]
