The hypoglycaemic coma is a severe complication for type 1 diabetic patients. Rarely fatal it may be associated with various paroxysmal accidents, potentially harmful, especially during driving. Hypoglycaemia certainly alters the quality of life because it markedly increases the anxiety of both the patient and his/her family. It is considered as a major limiting factor in the glycaemic management of type 1 diabetic patients. Being the consequence of numerous causal factors, hypoglycaemic coma is not always easy to prevent and may occur as a paroxysmal phenomenon, sometimes without obvious contributing circumstances. After having defined the various hypoglycaemic thresholds, we will analyse the pathophysiology of insulin-induced hypoglycaemia and of its hormonal counterregulation, and we will describe the hypoglycaemia unawareness phenomenon. These elements should help to better understand why a hypoglycaemic coma may suddenly occur in a diabetic patient. Some advices will also be given to reduce the risk of such a paroxysmal complication in patients with type 1 diabetes. [less ▲]

The paper defends that the campaign of secularist movement against resurgence of right-wing extremism, although animated by very good intentions, is fragile on two points : it gives too much emphasis on the denunciation of a historical past that is no longer reclaimed by the far right itself and too little on the learning processes necessary to foster democracy; and on the other hand, this struggle may appear partial and one sided because the fight against right-wing extremism is not a monopoly of the secularist movement.

This article proposes to analyse the discourses on “integration” developed during the last few years within various “ethnics” churches (France-Belgium). Of Pentecostal and Evangelical obedience, these churches, stemming from Congolese’s migrations (DRC), can be estimated to several hundreds and even up to a few thousands in Europe. Some constant can be observed in this new branch of Protestantism despite its fragmented and plural movement, particularly the right to think oneself beyond the logics of reduction to otherness. The integrationist discourse produced constitutes a real break with the ideas carried by the autochthon order of both hierarchies and centralities. [less ▲]

These last years, the objective of abolishing child labour in Burkina Faso (a West African country) has tried to create a national unanimity regarding the commitment of collective actors (decision-makers, civil society, employers, labor unions and media). It started by integrating the National Program of child welfare and the schedule of the Ministry of Employment, Ministry of Social Action, and the Ministry of Education. Burkina Faso joined the International Programme on the Elimination of Child Labour (IPEC) in 1999, created a department of fight against child labour in 2006 and raised the minimum age for admission to employment from 14 to 16 years. This paper supports a critical view of global actions to fight child labour and discusses the complexities of this issue in Burkina Faso. Using an analysis of the State’s National Plan of Action on the elimination of child Labour and two local cases studies on projects that are aimed at removing children from their work, it shows how the local context of working children and their parents are ignored in order to comply with international policy agenda and to cater to donor demands.

The increasing prevalence of obesity is contributing substantially to the ongoing epidemic of type 2 diabetes. Abdominal adiposity, a feature of ectopic fat syndrome, is associated with silent inflammation, abnormal hormone secretion, and various metabolic disturbances that contribute to insulin resistance and insulin secretory defects, resulting in type 2 diabetes, and induce a toxic pattern that leads to cardiovascular disease, liver pathologies, and cancer. Despite the importance of weight control strategies in the prevention and management of type 2 diabetes, long-term results from lifestyle or drug interventions are generally disappointing. Furthermore, most of the classic glucose-lowering drugs have a side-effect of weight gain, which renders the management of most overweight or obese people with type 2 diabetes even more challenging. Many anti-obesity pharmacological drugs targeting central control of appetite were withdrawn from the market because of safety concerns. The gastrointestinal lipase inhibitor orlistat was the only anti-obesity drug available until the recent US, but not European, launch of phentermine–controlled-release topiramate and lorcaserin. Improved knowledge about bodyweight regulation opens new prospects for the potential use of peptides derived from the gut or the adipose tissue. Combination therapy will probably be necessary to avoid compensatory mechanisms and potentiate initial weight loss while avoiding weight regain. New glucose-lowering treatments, especially glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists and sodium glucose cotransporter-2 inhibitors, offer advantages over traditional antidiabetic drugs by promoting weight loss while improving glucose control. In this Review, we explore the overlapping pathophysiology and also how various treatments can, alone or in combination, combat the dual burden of obesity and type 2 diabetes. [less ▲]

Coveram® is a new fixed combination of an angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor, perindopril, and a calcium antagonist, amlodipine. This new medication is indicated for the treatment of arterial hypertension and/or stable coronary heart disease. Such fixed combination of two molecules that have been extensively evaluated according to evidence-based medicine offers the advantage of an excellent efficacy, associated with a good tolerance profile, and favours patient’s compliance. The marketing of different formulations of Coveram® combining various dosages allows easy adjustment and titration of each of the components according to the individual patient’s characteristics.

BACKGROUND. Difficulties in assertiveness are often reported by individuals suffering from various psychological problems involving anxiety, depression. Cognitive and behavioral therapeutic procedures have already proven their effectiveness in helping these patients. The aim of our study was to test the efficacy of new therapeutic procedure, inspired by the third wave of behavioral and cognitive psychotherapies. METHOD. Our study used an actor’s play training combined with an assertiveness program which comprised ten sessions: five of which were animated by an actress and five by a psychologist-psychotherapist. Each actor play’s session was given alternatively with a psychoeducation’s session. Twenty subjects participated in this program. They fulfilled these pre and post-test assessments: social self-efficacy questionnaire, self-affirmation scales, self-esteem scale, communication scale, anxiety and depression scales. Repeated measures’ ANOVAs have been used to compare pre and post-test results. RESULTS. Results showed statistically significant improvements on each dependent variable, except for the Communication Scale. The higher effects appeared for Beck Depression Inventory and Social Self-efficacy Questionnaire which presented an effect size of 0,74 and 0,56, respectively. Scores on STAI-A and B and on Self-affirmation Scale were over the effect size’s threshold. However, these improvements don’t attain control group’s scores reported in the scientific literature. DISCUSSION. The results highlighted that our program is effective in reducing difficulties in assertiveness. [less ▲]

In order to improve our knowledge of the mechanisms of enantiomer recognition pattern in nonaqueous systems, an approach combining nonaqueous CE (NACE), molecular modelling and NMR was undertaken. Bupivacaine and propranolol were selected as model compounds and their interactions with two single-isomer highly charged beta-CD derivatives, namely heptakis(2,3-di-O-methyl-6-O-sulfo)-beta-CD (HDMS-beta-CD) and heptakis(2,3-di-O-acetyl-6-O-sulfo)-beta-CD (HDAS-beta-CD), were studied. The CD-bupivacaine complexes were evaluated by 2-D Rotating-frame Overhauser Effect SpectroscopY (ROESY) experiments. From these experiments, it can be assumed that inclusion complexes are not formed, whatever the CD derivative used. Molecular modelling was performed at the RHF/MINI-1 or B3LYP/6-31G(d) level. External as well as inclusion type complexes with the alkyl chain of propranolol into both CD cavities were located. Interaction energies calculated for bupivacaine and propranolol correlated with the enantiomer migration order observed in the NACE experiments using both anionic CD derivatives. The interaction of propranolol with HDMS-beta-CD or HDAS-beta-CD gives rise to a family of external and inclusion complexes in which some are more probably obtained. [less ▲]
