Background: Large-scale international collaboration is essential to decipher relevant information in the context of omics-scale interrogations in cancer research. This is even more important for rare and fatal diseases like pancreas cancer (PC). Methods: The COST Action BM1204 is a unique platform to facilitate the collaboration of a broad range of European and international PC multidisciplinary research groups in order to: (1) integrate knowledge and experience in a multidisciplinary way 'from cell to society', (2) promote the application of uniform study tools and protocols, (3) foster their optimal use by early-stage researchers, (4) enhance the mobility and training of researchers, and (5) disseminate the results produced to the broader society. Results: This Action will develop novel interdisciplinary tools for collaborative research to improve our understanding of PC and its prevention, diagnosis and treatment. It also aims to answer questions related to the etiology, early detection, evidence-based and personalized treatment, and health management for PC. Furthermore, the Action will contribute to new insights into PC personalized medicine and beyond as well as to the understanding of complex and rare diseases taking PC as a best practice example. The Action aims at attracting young scholars across a range of disciplines in collaboration with more experienced researchers and enhancing active European participation in the international scenario of PC research. Conclusion: The ultimate aim is to foster PC research in Europe and to coordinate this effort with other international initiatives to reduce disease mortality. (c) 2013 S. Karger AG, Basel.

EU-MERCOSUR interregionalism: Facing Up to the South American Crisis and the Free Trade Area of the Americas

As part of their plans to diversify and globalize their foreign relations, the EU and MERCOSUR have been working to establish closer links. They have a project to create an interregional Association based on political dialogue, cooperation and trade issues. To understand the evolution of this interregional relationship, it is also important to take into account the USAs’ project, which seeks to create a hemispheric market for 2005 and in which MERCOSUR is participating. There is competition between Europe and the USA in the Southern Cone. While the EU has often provided support for institution building in MERCOSUR, the latter has frequently been destabilized by US regionalist strategy. The USA has often taken advantage of its special relationship with Argentina. However, the open crises that Argentina has faced since December 2001, and the US attitude towards the crises, appear to have affected the Buenos Aires foreign policy alignment with Washington. What geopolitical consequences could this have for the area? And what is the US position on this development? Has the EU taken advantage of the situation to reinforce its interregional partnership with MERCOSUR and to counteract US influence in the region? [less ▲]Detailed reference viewed: 368 (8 ULg)

This article analyses to what extent national competition authorities can still choose their format and shape. Arguing that EU law, and above all, fundamental procedural rights, more than ever circumscribe this possibility, the article outlines the current scope for and limits of national institutional autonomy.

A new transition-metal-containing Zintl compound, Eu10Mn6Sb13, was prepared by a high-temperature Sn-flux synthesis. The structure was determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. Eu10Mn6Sb13 crystallizes in the monoclinic space group C2/m with a = 15.1791(6) Angstrom, b = 19.1919(7) Angstrom, c = 12.2679(4) Angstrom, beta = 108.078(1)degrees, Z = 4 (R1 = 0.0410, wR2 = 0.0920), and T = 90(2) K. The structure of Eu10Mn6Sb13 is composed of double layers of Mn-centered tetrahedra separated by Eu2+ cations. The double layers are composed of edge- and corner-sharing Mn-centered tetrahedra which form cavities occupied by Eu2+ cations and [Sb-2](4-) dumbbells. Linear [Sb-3](5-) trimers bridging two tetrahedra across the cavity are also present. Bulk susceptibility data indicate paramagnetic behavior with a ferromagnetic component present below 60 K. Temperature-dependent electrical resistivity measurements show semiconducting behavior above 60 K (E-a = 0.115(2) eV), a large and unusually sharp maximum in the resistivity at similar to40 K, and metallic behavior below 40 K. Eu-151 Mossbauer spectra confirm that the europium is divalent with an average isomer shift of -11.2(1) mm/s at 100 K; the spectra obtained below 40 K reveal magnetic ordering of six of the seven europium sublattices and, at 4.2 K, complete ordering of the seven europium sublattices.
