bovine mastitis. The aim of the present work was to follow in three herds and during the 3 years the clonality of S. aureus isolated from California Mastitis Test (CMT)-positive cows at the experimental station of Toukounous (Niger) by (i) comparing their pulsed field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) fingerprints, (ii) identifying their virulotypes by PCR amplification and (iii) assessing the production of capsule and the formation of biofilm. The 88 S. aureus isolates belonged to 14 different pulsotypes, 3 of them being predominant: A (30 %), D (27 %), B (15 %). A and B pulsotypes had the highest profile similarity coefficient (94 %), while others had similarity coefficients under 60 %. Seventy-five S. aureus isolates were further studied for their virulotypes, capsular antigens and biofilm production. Most surface factor-, leukocidin- and haemolysin-, but not the enterotoxin-encoding genes were detected in the majority (>75 %) of the isolates and were evenly distributed between the A, B and D pulsotype isolates. The majority of the 72 S. aureus positive with the cap5H or cap8H PCR produced the CP5 (82 %) or the CP8 (88 %) capsular antigen, respectively. Biofilm production by the 57 icaA-positive isolates was strong for 8 isolates, moderate for 31 isolates but weak for 18 isolates, implying that the icaA gene may not be expressed in vitro by one third of the positive isolates. Similar to other studies, those results confirm that a restricted number of S. aureus clones circulate within the three herds at Toukounous and that their specific virulence-associated properties must still be further studied [less ▲]

Comtesse puis duchesse d’Angoulême, Louise de Savoie (1476-1531) est l’une des personnalités les plus influentes de la première Modernité européenne. Elle n’est pas seulement la mère de deux enfants illustres, Marguerite, future reine de Navarre, et François, futur François Ier, elle est aussi la sœur de Philibert II le Beau, duc de Savoie. Une fois son fils monté sur le trône de France, Louise domine le Conseil et assure, à deux reprises, la régence du royaume. Son action concerne encore les arts et les lettres : amatrice d’objets d’art et bibliophile avertie, elle demande à Léonard de Vinci d’imaginer une ville et un palais neuf à Romorantin, participant de la sorte à la diffusion en France des idées et des formes venues d’Italie. Curieusement, alors que son influence fut considérable, Louise de Savoie n’a pas fait l’objet d’une monographie récente (un ouvrage collectif à son propos paraîtra toutefois en 2015). Son emblématique n’a plus été analysé depuis les travaux d’Anne-Marie Lecocq (1987), qui s’était essentiellement concentrée sur les signes présents dans les livres qu’elle commanda pour soutenir l’éducation de ses enfants. À l’occasion de cette communication – prolongeant ainsi une recherche entreprise avec Pierre-Gilles Girault – nous voudrions revenir sur le discours héraldique de Louise de Savoie, en explicitant l’une de ses devises favorites, la cordelière. Pour la mère de François Ier, la corde à plusieurs nœuds revêt plusieurs significations. D’abord, puisqu’elle se compose de nœuds de Savoie, un emblème largement diffusé au début du XVIe siècle, notamment sous l’influence de Philibert II le Beau et Marguerite d’Autriche, elle souligne l’appartenance de la dame à la maison de Savoie. Ensuite, et ce de façon inédite au sein de la maison de Savoie, la cordelière de Louise associe nœuds de Savoie et cordon franciscain, une référence que nous proposons d’expliquer non pas uniquement, comme on le fait traditionnellement, par les liens prétenduement étroits qui reliaient la mère de François Ier avec l’ordre des Franciscains. Pour Louise, il s’agit sans doute aussi de se situer dans la lignée d’Anne de Bretagne, à laquelle la cordelière est indéniablement liée. [less ▲]

The essential oil of Lavandula angustifolia was investigated for its biocide activity against Acyrtosiphum pisum by fumigation. The oil was characterised by GC-MS revealing that linalool was the most abundant component (38.57%), followed by linalyl acetate (29.95%), 1,8-cineole (13,66%), camphor (13,13%), -pinene (3,14%) and terpinene-4-ol (1,54%). The Mortality was measured upon treatment with oil concentrations ranging from 5 to 25 µl.l-1 of air. The mortality of aphids increased with oil concentration and LC50 values were determined to be 11.2 µl.l-1 of air. The full mixture was also prepared and toxicity was compared with individual constituents. The results showed that the presence of all constituents were necessary to equal the toxicity of the natural oils L. angustifolia oil can provide valuable pesticide activity with significantly lower LC50 values [less ▲]

Nous avons présenté et explicité ses devises favorites, à savoir la cordelière, qui évoque autant le nœud de Savoie que la cordelière franciscaine, le vol, sans doute choisi puisque l’aile évoque le L de Louise par homophonie, le bouquet de lis ou le cygne « navré », mais aussi les écus et les monogrammes qui lui sont associés et qui ponctuent enluminures, tapisseries, bas-reliefs et éléments sculptés de l’architecture.

Background: The study was conducted to evaluate the analytical and clinical performance of the VIDAS® 25-OH Vitamin D Total assay. The clinical performance of the assay was compared with four other immunoassays against the results of two different liquid chromatography/ mass spectrometry methods (LC-MS/MS) standardized to NIST reference materials. Methods: VIDAS® 25-OH Vitamin D Total assay precision, linearity, detection limits and sample matrix comparison were assessed following CLSI guidelines. For method comparison, a total of 150 serum samples ranging from 7 to 92 ng/mL were analyzed by all the methods. Correlation was studied using Passing-Bablok regression and Bland- Altman analysis. The concordance correlation coefficient (CCC) was calculated to evaluate agreement between immunoassays and the reference LC-MS/MS method. In addition, samples containing endogenous 25(OH)D2 were used to assess each immunoassay’s ability to detect this analyte. Pregnancy and hemodialysis samples were used to the study the effect of vitamin D binding protein (DBP) concentration over VIDAS® assay performance. Results: The VIDAS® 25-OH Vitamin D Total assay showed excellent correlation to the LC-MS/MS results (y = 1.01x+0.22 ng/mL, r = 0.93), as obtained from two different sites and distinct LC-MS/MS methods. The limit of quantification was determined at 8.1 ng/mL. Cross-reactivity for 25(OH)D2 was over 80%. At concentrations of 10.5, 26 and 65.1 ng/mL, within-run CVs were 7.9%, 3.6% and 1.7%, while total CVs (between runs, calibrations, lots and instruments) were 16.0%, 4.5% and 2.8%. The VIDAS® performance was not influenced by altered DBP levels, though under-recovery of 25(OH)D as compared to LC-MS/ MS was observed for hemodialysis samples. Conclusions: The VIDAS® 25-OH Vitamin D Total assay is therefore considered suitable for assessment of vitamin D status in clinical routine.

Figure emblématique de la Renaissance rouennaise et normande, Georges Ier d’Amboise rassemble, on le sait, une bibliothèque exceptionnelle, notamment constituée de manuscrits ayant appartenu aux rois aragonais de Naples. Le cardinal s’intéresse également à l’architecture, comme peu de ses contemporains, privilégiant les formes et les fonctions nouvelles, spécialement celles en vigueur en Italie. Il participe aussi à la fortune française d’artistes italiens de renom, comme Andrea Mantegna, Léonard de Vinci, Pérugin ou Andrea Solario, dont il commande ou acquiert des œuvres afin de décorer ses demeures, le château de Gaillon en tête. Mais, alors que son rôle dans la diffusion, au nord des Alpes, des idées et des motifs venus d’Italie est indéniable, le portrait de Georges Ier d’Amboise amateur d’art comprend bien d’autres facettes. Prolongeant une recherche entamée à l’occasion de la parution de l’ouvrage Georges Ier d’Amboise 1460-1510. Une figure plurielle de la Renaissance (2013), cette communication entend revenir sur les objets et les œuvres d’art que l’on peut associer au mécénat et/ou aux possessions de l’archevêque de Rouen. Nous nous pencherons sur les productions italiennes qui sont liées à Georges Ier d’Amboise mais aussi sur les étoffes, les pièces d’orfèvrerie et les tableaux de chevalet, qui sont mentionnés en nombre dans les comptes de dépenses de la construction du château de Gaillon et dans les inventaires qui décrivent les biens meubles conservés dans les demeures du cardinal. L’analyse de ces sources – que jusqu’ici les historiens ont surtout utilisées pour restituer la chronologie du château de Gaillon, rétablir la distribution intérieure de la demeure ou décrire la célèbre bibliothèque du légat alors qu’elles se révèlent extrêmement précieuses pour présenter les collections du conseiller de Louis XII – montre que le goût de Georges Ier d’Amboise, bien que novateur, s’inscrit aussi dans la continuité de celui des amateurs français de la fin du Moyen Âge.

Science and technology require an intervention by the law, and law is called upon to intervene in front of their evolution, and to look for proper solutions of governance and rational responses to their risks. One of the main issues to be investigated from the legal viewpoint is represented by the ‘dual-use dilemma’ that arises both in ‘traditional’ and new areas of techno-sciences. Indeed, any kind of research has the potential to be used both for bad as well as for good purposes. Therefore, it is important to reflect upon the ways to control possibly dangerous research without preventing the progress from going further. Such ‘dual-use dilemma’, then, entails the study of one of the fundamental freedoms in the biolaw area: the freedom of scientific research, its limits, and relationship with other rights/needs/freedoms (such the need of security). This work focuses on two areas of the techno-scientific world. One is more ‘traditional’, i.e. nuclear science, in whose context the reflections on ‘dual-use’ were born and developed, and the other one is a new emerging technology, which is synthetic biology. The aim is to understand how the freedom of scientific research could be shaped in relationship with other rights/needs/interests for dealing with ‘dual-use’ issues in the aforementioned areas of science and technology.

It is well-known that the concept of nationality plays an important role in different fields of the law, be it private or public law, private international law (‘conflicts of law’) or public international law. While nationality is also frequently the subject of comparative analysis, and therefore of comparative law, little has so far been written on the conceptual and linguistic difficulties that arise in conducting comparative analyses of the nationality laws of different countries – especially if one does not rely on translations but examines them in the original languages. After giving an overview of the legal scholarship on legal translation and comparative law and assessing its relevance for the domain of nationality law (sections 2 and 3), the paper will continue with some remarks on the usefulness and quality of bi- and multilingual legal dictionaries for these fields of study (section 4). While my own experiences in conducting comparative and multilingual research on nationality law are referred to throughout the paper, section 5 will specifically give relevant examples from my work on the book Nationality Law in the Western Hemisphere: A Study on Grounds for Acquisition and Loss of Citizenship in the Americas and the Caribbean.

Le concile de Francfort n’a pas seulement contribué à la construction de l’idéologie impériale carolingienne. Il fut aussi le lieu d’une importante réflexion conciliaire et théologique, stimulée par la propagation de la doctrine adoptianiste des Espagnols et par la diffusion des actes du concile de Nicée II en Francia. L’important corpus documentaire qui a été conservé offre une possibilité exceptionnelle pour l’époque de connaître le concile de l’intérieur, de percevoir les sentiments et les attentes des participants, de comprendre les enjeux ecclésiologiques et théologiques des questions mises à l’ordre du jour. Cet article propose une esquisse d’évaluation de l’intensité dramatique de ce synode et de l’effective portée des débats qui s’y sont joués. [less ▲]
