The aim of this study was to investigate the role of plasma glucagon levels on the blood glucose response to intravenous insulin administered continuously or in a pulsatile manner. Six type I diabetic patients proven to have no residual insulin secretion were investigated. Endogenous glucagon secretion was inhibited by a continuous intravenous infusion of somatostatin (100 micrograms/h) and replaced by exogenous infusions of the hormone at three different rates (7.5, 4.5, and 2.5 micrograms/h), resulting in three different plasma glucagon steady-state levels (i.e., approximately equal to 200, approximately equal to 130, and approximately equal to 75 pg/ml, respectively). Each subject, in random order and on different days, was infused intravenously with regular human insulin either continuously (0.17 mU X kg-1 X min-1) or with the same amount of insulin infused in a pulsatile manner (0.85 mU X kg-1 X min-1 during 2 min followed by 8 min during which no insulin was infused). At plasma glucagon levels approximately equal to 200 pg/ml, blood glucose rose from approximately 10 to approximately 13 mM without any difference between the two modalities of insulin infusion. For plasma glucagon levels approximately equal to 130 pg/ml, plasma glucose remained steady throughout the experiments, but during the last 40 min, plasma glucose levels were significantly lower when insulin was administered intermittently. This greater blood glucose-lowering effect of pulsatile insulin occurred earlier and was more pronounced for plasma glucagon levels averaging 75 pg/ml. We conclude that the greater hypoglycemic effect of insulin administered intravenously in a pulsatile manner in type I diabetics critically depends on plasma glucagon circulating levels. [less ▲]

A bio-inspired durable anti-biofilm coating was developed for industrial stainless steel (SS) surfaces. Two polymers inspired from the adhesive and cross-linking properties of mussels were designed and assembled from aqueous solutions onto SS surfaces to afford durable coatings. Trypsin, a commercially available broad spectrum serine protease, was grafted as the final active layer of the coating. Its proteolytic activity after long immersion periods was demonstrated against several substrata, viz. a synthetic molecule, N-a-benzoyl-DL-arginine-p-nitroanilide hydrochloride (BAPNA), a protein, FTC-casein, and Gram-positive biofilm forming bacterium Staphylococcus epidermidis.

Because of its resistance to corrosion and chemicals, relevant mechanical and esthetical properties, stainless steel (SS) is widely used in the daily life (food industry, household appliances, surgery …). However, SS is unable to prevent bacteria from adhering, proliferating and forming a resistant biofilm when ageing. Therefore, surface modification is needed for providing durable antibacterial properties. We report here on an all-in-one approach to prepare refillable antimicrobial films using the layer-by-layer deposition of polyelectrolytes. Specifically designed biocidal multilayered polyelectrolyte films that bear 3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanine (DOPA), known as a promoter of adhesion to inorganic surfaces, were deposited onto SS. DOPA was incorporated in the polycationic chains by radical copolymerisation of N-methacrylated DOPA with the quaternary ammonium salt of 2-(dimethylamino)ethyl methacrylate (DMAEMA+). In order to boost the antibacterial activity of the polycationic layer, AgNO3 was added to the aqueous solution of P(DOPA)-co-P(DMAEMA+), which resulted in the in-situ formation of silver based nanoparticles, sources of biocial Ag+. The layer-by-layer deposition of aqueous P(DOPA)-co-P(DMAEMA+)/AgCl/Ag0 suspension and aqueous solution of poly(styrene sulfonate) provides high antibacterial activity against Gram-negative E. Coli bacteria. Moreover, after silver depletion, films retain some antimicrobial activity, thanks to ammonium groups of the copolymer. We also show that the antibacterial activity of the films can then be easily re-boosted. [less ▲]

Energy, built environment and thermal comforts are closely inter-related. The unprecedented growth in building sector due to growth in population and enhanced thermal comfort standards leads to more primary energy consumption and consequently increases the green house gas (GHG) emissions to the environment. The construction industry in India is one of the largest economic activities and is growing at an average rate of 9.5% as compared to the global average of 5%. Buildings are the major consumer of energy in their construction, operation and maintenance. In India building sector accounts 30-40% of total primary energy consumption and more than 30% of electricity. While the growth is imminent, it is imperative that the developments need to happen in an environmentally sustainable manner. In this context, energy efficient building, climate-responsive building or green buildings designs have great impacts on conservation of natural resources, energy efficiency, better waste management, water use efficiency and reductions in GHG emissions. In this article, the various measures taken worldwide to reduce the energy consumption and carbon footprint of the buildings through green building approach are discussed. The present state of the green building initiatives, green building rating and certification procedures in India are also discussed. [less ▲]
