BACKGROUND: Coughing during emergence from general anaesthesia may be detrimental, particularly after cervical spine surgery. We compared the effect of propofol or sevoflurane anaesthesia on the incidence and severity of coughing during recovery in patients undergoing cervical spine surgery via an anterior approach. As a secondary aim, we also evaluated the influences of smoking and estimated residual anaesthetic agent concentrations on coughing. METHODS: Thirty-four patients were enrolled in a randomized prospective, double-blind study to receive either propofol (PPF) or sevoflurane (SEVO) for maintenance of anaesthesia. The decision to perform tracheal extubation was based on specified criteria, including resumption of spontaneous respiration and consciousness. During emergence from anaesthesia and extubation, coughing was observed and graded at predefined times. RESULTS: The incidence of severe coughing was higher in the SEVO group than in the PPF group (59% and 6%, respectively), and also in smokers than in non-smokers (50% and 17%, respectively). The peak incidence of coughing was at tracheal extubation. The probability of coughing was influenced by the estimated residual concentration of anaesthetic agents at extubation, except for smokers in the SEVO group who were at the highest risk of coughing. CONCLUSIONS: The incidence of coughing after cervical spine surgery when tracheal extubation is performed according to clinical criteria is lower after propofol anaesthesia compared with sevoflurane anaesthesia. Smokers are at increased risk of coughing, independently of the type of anaesthesia maintenance. Higher residual concentrations of anaesthetic agents decrease the probability of coughing, except for smokers anaesthetized with sevoflurane. [less ▲]

Propofol has been reported to have antioxidant properties and to inhibit lipid peroxidation. In this study, we examined the ability of propofol to inhibit lipid peroxidation induced by three free radical systems (hydroxyl, ferryl, and oxo-ferryl radicals), and we compared the effect of propofol with that of vitamin E, an endogenous antioxidant. Lipid peroxidation was induced by exposing a linoleic acid emulsion to either water gamma radiation, a ferrous iron-ascorbate solution, or human hemoglobin, generating the hydroxyl, ferryl, and oxo-ferryl radicals, respectively. Each experiment was performed in triplicate with and without propofol or vitamin E at concentrations between 10(-5) and 10(-4) M. Lipid peroxidation was quantified by gas chromatography measurement of the pentane released (nmoles) from lipid decomposition. In each condition, a significant dose-response relationship was found between the release of pentane and the concentration of either propofol or vitamin E. The antioxidant activities of both agents were similar but significantly higher against the hydroxyl than the ferryl and oxo-ferryl radicals. The study suggests that propofol could be beneficial as an anesthetic or sedative drug in patients presenting pathologies associated with free radical reactions. [less ▲]

The effect of prostaglandins PGE2 and PGF alpha 2 on infectious bovine rhinotracheitis (IBR) virus (bovine herpesvirus 1; BHV-1) was studied by using the measurement of the mean size of plaques produced in cell culture by IBR/Cu5 strain. Three concentrations (0.1, 1 and 10 micrograms/ml) of prostaglandins, PGE2 and PGF alpha 2 were used. Each prostaglandin provoked an increase in the mean plaque size when compared to control plaques, at the concentrations 1 and 10 micrograms/ml for PGE2 and 10 micrograms/ml for PGF alpha 2. [less ▲]

The effect of cryoprotectants (maltodextrin+glycerol) and cryoprotectants+antioxidant [ascorbic acid and/or butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT)] mixtures on the survival, electrolyte leakage, and lipid degradation of freeze-dried Weissella paramesenteroides LC11 during storage was investigated and compared with that of the control (cells without additives) over a 90-day storage period at 4 or 20 degrees in glass tubes with water activity (a(w)) of 0.23. The survival, electrolyte leakage, and lipid degradation were evaluated through colony counts, electrical conductivity, and thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS) content, respectively. The fatty acids composition was determined by gas chromatography, in both the total lipid extract and the polar lipid fraction, and compared with that of the control after the 90-day storage period. As the storage proceeded, increases in leakage value and TBARS content, as well as a decrease in viability, were observed. After 90 days of storage, the major fatty acids found in both the total lipid extract and the polar lipid fraction were palmitic (16:0), palmitoleic (16:1), stearic (18:0), oleic (18:1), linoleic (18:2), and linolenic (18:3) acids. The survival, leakage value, TBARS content and 18:2/16:0 or 18:3/16:0 ratio were the greatest for the protected strain held at 4 degrees . Cells with the cryoprotectants+BHT mixture showed the highest percentage of survival and 18:2/16:0 or 18:3/16:0 ratio in both lipid extracts, as well as the lowest leakage value and TBARS content after the 90-day storage period. Drying cells with the cryoprotectants+BHT mixture considerably slowed down polar lipid degradation and loss of membrane integrity, resulting in improved viability during storage. [less ▲]

The present study aimed at investigating the effects of an epinephrine (EPI) intravenous infusion (10 micrograms/min for 30 min) in normal subjects and in obese patients before and after 13 days of protein-supplemented fasting (PSF, 70 g protein/day). Blood glucose, plasma free fatty acids (FFA), lactate, insulin (IRI) and glucagon were determined before, during (15, 30 min) and after (+30 and +60 min) the EPI infusion. 1. When compared to lean control subjects, obese patients exhibited a less marked rise in blood glucose and a more important increase in plasma FFA, EPI infusion decreased IRI plasma levels in normals but not in the obese. Plasma glucagon was lower in the obese under basal conditions and their A cell reactivity to EPI was clearly reduced. 2. Comparison of the results obtained in obese patients before and after PSF revealed that EPI-induced blood glucose rise was not altered despite lower basal values after PSF. Plasma lactate response was impaired, probably because of the depletion in muscle glycogen. Reduction in basal plasma IRI was associated with a significantly higher FFA mobilization. Abnormally low basal EPI-stimulated glucagon concentrations persisted after PSF despite concomitant reductions in blood glucose and plasma IRI. [less ▲]

This study aimed at investigating the influence of protein-supplemented fasting (PSF) on the tolerance and the fuel-hormone response to endurance exercise in the severely obese subject. For this purpose, eight obese men (27 +/- 2 yr, 182 +/- 7 per cent of ideal body weight) exercised on a horizontal treadmill (4 km/h) during 3 h before and after 13 d of PSF (Alburone, 70 g protein/day). Because of the 8.9 +/- 0.7 kg weight loss and the corresponding lower energy cost, exercise oxygen consumption decreased from 1.6 +/- 0.1 (before PSF) to 1.4 +/- 0.1 l/min (after PSF). In contrast, mean exercise heart rate was identical (119 +/- 5/min) in both conditions, resulting in a lower oxygen pulse after PSF. The mean respiratory quotient measured during exercise was lower after PSF (0.72 +/- 0.01 vs 0.75 +/- 0.01 2 P less than 0.05), thus demonstrating a higher fat utilization. This was supported by a higher exercise-induced plasma free fatty acid (FFA) mobilization after PSF (delta plasma FFA: + 675 +/- 101 vs + 376 +/- 121 mumol/l, 2 P less than 0.05). This metabolic adaptation mainly results from two mechanisms: a significantly lower plasma IRI at rest and during exercise after PSF (5.7 +/- 0.8 vs 11.4 +/- 1.4 microunits/ml, 2 P less than 0.001); and a lower basal blood glucose (4.2 +/- 0.2 vs 4.6 +/- 0.1 mmol/l) and an earlier decrease of glucose (30th vs 90th min) during exercise after PSF, suggesting a relative depletion of the carbohydrates stores. The lipolytic hormones (glucagon, epinephrine, norepinephrine, cortisol, growth hormone) did not significantly increase during exercise after PSF when compared to exercise before PSF; thus, their role in the enhanced FFA mobilization appears less important. Only two of our eight subjects were unable to achieve the third hour of exercise after PSF; however, no major clinical events or electrocardiographical disturbances were observed in any of the eight subjects. In conclusion, moderate exercise can be tolerated at least for 2 h during PSF when appropriate fluid, mineral and vitamin therapy is given. Under these conditions it induces a preferential utilization of fat-derived substrates and selectively augments fat mobilization which favors weight loss. For these reasons, moderate exercise can be recommended under strict medical supervision as part of all weight reduction therapy. [less ▲]

The effect of the addition of the total proteose-peptone (TPP) fraction on some physico-chemical properties of recombined cream was studied. Oil-in-water emulsions, 30% or 20% (w/w) fat, were prepared using only the dairy components buttermilk, milkfat and TPP. The effect of different concentrations of TPP on droplet size, creaming stability, flow behaviour, viscosity and whippability of recombined creams was tested. Of the different creams, those containing 2% (w/w) or more TPP were more viscous, showed different flow behaviour, and had improved stability and whippability compared with the other creams. The modifications in physico-chemical properties appeared to be driven by changes in particle size distribution caused by droplet aggregation. The percentage of fat also influenced the properties of the final product. It may therefore be possible to obtain desirable modifications in recombined cream using only dairy ingredients.

Precipitation traditionally observed using raingages or weather stations, is one of the main parameters that has direct impact on runoff production. This pPrecipitation data requires a preliminary spatial interpolation prior to hydrological modeling. The accuracy of modelling result is determined bydepends on the accuracy of the interpolated spatial rainfall which differs according to different interpolation methods. The accuracy of the interpolated spatial rainfall is usually determined by cross-validation method. The objective of this study is to assess the different interpolation methods of daily rainfall at the watershed scale through hydrological modelling and to explore the best methods that provides a good long term simulation. Four versions of geostatistics: Ordinary Kriging (ORK), Universal Kriging (UNK), Kriging with External Dridft (KED) and Ordinary Cokriging (OCK) and two types of deterministic methods: Thiessen polygon (THI) and Inverse Distance Weighting (IDW) are used to produce 30-year daily rainfall inputs for a distributed physically-based hydrological model (EPIC-GRID). This work is conducted in the Ourthe and Ambleve nested catchments, located in the Ardennes hilly landscape in the Walloon region, Belgium. The total catchment area is 2908 km², lies between 67 and 693 m in elevation. The multivariate geostatistics (KED and OCK) are also used by incorporating elevation as external data to improve the rainfall prediction. This work also aims at analysing the effect of different raingage densities and position used for interpolation, on the stream flow modelled to get insight in terms of the capability and limitation of the geostatistical methods. The number of raingage varies from 70, 60, 50, 40, 30, 20, 8 to 4 stations located in and surrounding the catchment area. In the latter case, we try to use different positions: around the catchment and only a part of the catchment. The result shows that the simple method like THI fails to capture the rainfall and to produce good flow simulation when using 4 raingages. The KED and UNK are comparable to other methods for a raingage case that in which stations are located around the catchment area, especially in the high elevation catchment but the worst methods for other raingage position cases where the rainfall stations are located only at a part and mostly outside of the catchment area. However, three methods (IDW, ORK and OCK) can overcome this problem since they are more robust and can provide good performance of simulation in all raingage densities. When using 70, 60, 50, 40, 30, 20, 8 raingages in the catchment area (2908 km²), no substantial differences in model performance are observed. [less ▲]

Raloxifene effectively reduces the incidence of vertebral fractures in patients with postmenopausal osteoporosis. Recent data suggest that low-dose monofluorophosphate (MFP) plus calcium reduces the vertebral fracture rate in postmenopausal women with moderate osteoporosis. The objective of this study was to evaluate the combination of raloxifene and MFP in the treatment of postmenopausal women with osteopenia, osteoporosis and severe osteoporosis. A total of 596 postmenopausal women with osteopenia, osteoporosis and severe osteoporosis (mean femoral neck T-score of -2.87 SD) were randomized to treatment with 60 mg/day raloxifene HCl and 20 mg/day fluoride ions (as MFP) or 20 mg/day fluoride and placebo for 18 months. All patients received calcium (1000 mg/day) and vitamin D (500 IU/day) supplements. Changes in bone mineral density (BMD), as primary endpoint, and the rate of osteoporotic fractures and biochemical markers, as secondary endpoints, were assessed. As compared with MFP, raloxifene plus MFP was associated with significantly greater mean increases in the BMD of the femoral neck (1.37% versus 0.33%; P=0.004), total hip (0.89% versus -0.42%; P<0.001) and lumbar spine (8.80% versus 5.47% P<0.001). In the raloxifene plus MFP group, 16 patients sustained 17 osteoporotic fractures, as compared with 22 patients sustaining 34 incident osteoporotic fractures in the MFP group (P=0.313). One patient in the raloxifene plus MFP group sustained multiple osteoporotic fractures, as compared with eight patients in the MFP group (P=0.020). MFP alone significantly increased the serum bone alkaline phosphatase (bone ALP) and the urinary C-terminal crosslinking telopeptide of type I collagene (U-CTX). The addition of raloxifene in the combination arm blunted the rise in bone ALP, which remained nevertheless significant, and abolished the increase in U-CTX. The combination of raloxifene with MFP was generally well tolerated. This study demonstrates that, in postmenopausal women with osteopenia, osteoporosis and severe osteoporosis, the combination therapy of raloxifene plus MFP favorably influences the BMD and the bone formation and resorption balance, and may reduce the risk of multiple osteoporotic fractures compared to MFP alone.

The current study is focused on the iron ores granulation process in a laboratory-scale batch drum granulator using water as a binder, and on the investigation of the influence of raw material properties (morphology and wettability of the primary particles) on its kinetics. Nowadays processing of iron ores often requires a modification of particle size by means of granulation in order to improve further processability. A comparison of the granulation behaviour of three types of iron ores (magnetite, hematite and goethite) has been carried out. The wettability of the powders has been characterised by contact angle measurement. The results confirm the hydrophobic and hydrophilic characters of magnetite and goethite respectively. The granulation kinetics (evolution of particle size distribution as a function of time) of each type of iron ores was measured. [less ▲]

The effect of recombinant human erythropoietin (rHuEpo) on megakaryopoiesis remains controversial. Treatment with rHuEpo in renal failure patients has been associated with a slight elevation of platelet counts. In animal studies, high doses of rHuEpo produced an increase of platelet counts followed by a gradual return to normal after 7 to 15 days or even a substantial degree of thrombocytopenia. However, because iron deficiency is also known to be associated with thrombocytosis, (functional) iron deficiency during rHuEpo could be contributing to these observations. We investigated the impact of iron supply on changes in platelet counts induced by rHuEpo. Rats were either fed normal food (normal rats) or received 1% carbonyl iron for 2 weeks or 3 months, as well as during the experiment, to achieve iron supplementation or overload, respectively. Rats of all three categories then received daily intravenous injections of rHuEpo (10, 50, or 150 U) or normal saline (0 U) for 20 days. With 0 to 10 U rHuEpo, platelets remained stable. In normal rats receiving 50 to 150 U rHuEpo, platelets increased to 120% to 140% of baseline at 4 to 12 days to level off at 120% at 16 to 20 days. This response was less sustained in splenectomized animals. Iron-supplemented rats receiving 50 to 150 U rHuEpo also increased platelets initially, but the peak was at day 4, followed by a gradual return to baseline and even a moderate thrombocytopenia later on. Iron-overloaded rats receiving 50 to 150 U rHuEpo also had increased platelets at day 4, but the duration of platelet increase was shorter, and they experienced a more pronounced degree of thrombocytopenia in proportion to the dose of rHuEpo. Because the early elevation of platelets was of larger magnitude than hematocrit changes, it is unlikely that it could be accounted for by shrinkage of plasma volume. Because it was observed in all three iron conditions, there appears to be some direct positive effect of rHuEpo on platelet production. However, after this transient effect, expanded erythropoiesis appears to exert a negative impact upon platelet production. Secondary thrombocytopenia was not related to splenic pooling, and its very slow correction after cessation of rHuEpo therapy is not compatible with changes in platelet survival. Rather, it is consistent with stem cell competition between erythroid and megakaryocytic development. However, this secondary thrombocytopenia is masked by (functional) iron deficiency in rats not receiving an adequate iron supply from food or stores. [less ▲]

We examined the effect of treatment with rHuEpo on platelet counts in 61 hemodialysis patients and correlated them with changes in erythropoietic activity, iron status and inflammation. Platelets (10(9)/1) increased from 220 +/- 80 to 245 +/- 102 after 14 days and stabilized at that level up to day 90 (p < 0.0001). The increment was similar in complete or partial responders but was not observed in failures. Serum transferrin receptor (sTfR, a measure of total erythropoiesis) and Het rose much more progressively, but relative platelet increments correlated with relative increases in sTfR and Hct. Relative platelet increments correlated inversely with relative changes of SeFe or transferrin saturation, but not with their absolute values, nor with baseline ferritin or its progressive decrease. Although baseline platelet count was 12% higher in patients with inflammation and correlated with serum haptoglobin, relative increases were similar in patients with or without inflammation. In conclusion, rHuEpo produced a clinically minor but consistent elevation of platelet counts. These modifications were not related primarily to modifications in iron stores, functional iron deficiency, or inflammation, but paralleled the expansion of erythropoietic activity. The results suggest that rHuEpo has a small positive effect on platelet production, but it cannot be ruled out that this could be partially mediated through functional iron deficiency. [less ▲]
