TIMP-2 is an endogenous inhibitor of MMPs. Most data from model systems suggest that high levels of this inhibitor prevent metastasis. In human breast cancers, however, we show that high levels of TIMP-2 correlate with both shortened disease-free interval and overall survival. In primary breast cancers, TIMP-2 levels showed no significant relationship with either tumor size or axillary node status but correlated inversely with estrogen receptor levels. TIMP-2 levels also correlated significantly with those for TIMP-1. We conclude that high levels of endogenous TIMP-2, like other protease inhibitors such as PAI-1 and TIMP-1, correlate with progression of human breast cancer. [less ▲]

BACKGROUND: High levels of neuron specific enolase (NSE) have recently been described in the bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) fluid of patients with lung carcinoma. Although its value in serum has been extensively studied, its diagnostic value in BAL fluid in terms of sensitivity, specificity, and predictive value have not been evaluated. In addition, its value in staging and relation to serum NSE are yet unknown. METHODS: NSE levels were determined on the same day in the BAL fluid and the sera of two groups of patients: those with newly diagnosed lung carcinoma and those with smoking related chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Clinical TNM staging was also performed. Levels of NSE in BAL fluid were expressed as nanograms per 100 international units of lactate dehydrogenase. BAL fluid NSE levels of the two groups were compared with staging and serum NSE. RESULTS: A highly significant difference exists in BAL NSE in the two groups. For diagnostic purposes, the simultaneous measurements of serum NSE increases its sensitivity, but specificity remains unchanged. No correlation exists between BAL NSE and serum NSE, tumor size, nodal status, or the presence of metastases. BAL NSE is a better predictor of malignancy than serum NSE. CONCLUSION: BAL fluid measurements of NSE may have diagnostic value, specially if it is simultaneously measured in the serum. However, our study does not show any value for this technique in staging of lung carcinoma. Also it has no correlation with serum NSE. Studies will have to be performed to determine if BAL NSE can predict chemotherapeutic sensitivity. [less ▲]

DSSCs have been reported by O’Regan and Grätzel in the early nineties as a very promising alternative to conventional photovoltaic silicon devices. Main benefits of these cells are their low cost as well as their mild manufacturing process. In most of the specific literature, DSSCs are made of TiO2 films prepared by doctor-blade or screen-printing of anatase nanoparticles paste. However, due to the random organization of the nanoparticles, pore accessibility by the dye and electrolyte could be incomplete. Moreover, some anatase crystallites could suffer from a lack of connectivity, leading to electron transfer issues. The strategy adopted by our group to improve photovoltaic efficiencies involves a templating-assisted process allowing the preparation of highly porous layers with well-ordered and accessible pores as well as improved crystallites connectivity. The main goal is to increase the film surface area and to perfectly control the mesostructure in order to maximize the adsorption of active dye and the electrolyte infiltration inside the porous network. This talk especially focuses on the templating-assisted synthesis of TiO2 and ZnO semiconducting layers used as photoelectrode in DSSCs. Besides, due to the surface area improvement as well as the perfect control of the pore organization and the pore size, the templating strategy can be an effective solution to overcome light harvesting and solid electrolyte filling limitations encountered in solid-state DSSCs. Special effort is paid to the tuning of the TiO2 and ZnO semiconducting layers mesostructure in order to match with solid-state DSSC applications. [less ▲]

A complete census of planetary systems around a volume-limited sample of solar-type stars (FGK dwarfs) in the Solar neighborhood (d ≤ 15 pc) with uniform sensitivity down to Earth-mass planets within their Habitable Zones out to several AUs would be a major milestone in extrasolar planets astrophysics. This fundamental goal can be achieved with a mission concept such as NEAT—the Nearby Earth Astrometric Telescope. NEAT is designed to carry out space-borne extremely-high-precision astrometric measurements at the 0.05 μas (1 σ) accuracy level, sufficient to detect dynamical effects due to orbiting planets of mass even lower than Earth's around the nearest stars. Such a survey mission would provide the actual planetary masses and the full orbital geometry for all the components of the detected planetary systems down to the Earth-mass limit. The NEAT performance limits can be achieved by carrying out differential astrometry between the targets and a set of suitable reference stars in the field. The NEAT instrument design consists of an off-axis parabola single-mirror telescope (D = 1 m), a detector with a large field of view located 40 m away from the telescope and made of 8 small movable CCDs located around a fixed central CCD, and an interferometric calibration system monitoring dynamical Young's fringes originating from metrology fibers located at the primary mirror. The mission profile is driven by the fact that the two main modules of the payload, the telescope and the focal plane, must be located 40 m away leading to the choice of a formation flying option as the reference mission, and of a deployable boom option as an alternative choice. The proposed mission architecture relies on the use of two satellites, of about 700 kg each, operating at L2 for 5 years, flying in formation and offering a capability of more than 20,000 reconfigurations. The two satellites will be launched in a stacked configuration using a Soyuz ST launch vehicle. The NEAT primary science program will encompass an astrometric survey of our 200 closest F-, G- and K-type stellar neighbors, with an average of 50 visits each distributed over the nominal mission duration. The main survey operation will use approximately 70% of the mission lifetime. The remaining 30% of NEAT observing time might be allocated, for example, to improve the characterization of the architecture of selected planetary systems around nearby targets of specific interest (low-mass stars, young stars, etc.) discovered by Gaia, ground-based high-precision radial-velocity surveys, and other programs. With its exquisite, surgical astrometric precision, NEAT holds the promise to provide the first thorough census for Earth-mass planets around stars in the immediate vicinity of our Sun. [less ▲]

Context: .One of the main goals of the COROT mission is to get precise photometric observations of selected bright stars in order to allow the modelling of their interior through asteroseismology. However, in order to interpret the asteroseismological data, the effective temperature, surface gravity, and chemical composition of the stars must be known with sufficient accuracy.Aims.To carry out this task, we have developed a spectroscopic method called APASS (Atmospheric Parameters and Abundances from Synthetic Spectra) which allows precise analysis of stars with a moderate to high rotational velocity, which is the case for most primary COROT targets.Methods.Our method is based on synthetic spectra in which individual lines are replaced by analysis units (isolated lines or line blends, depending on the crowding of the spectral region and on the rotational broadening). It works differentially with respect to the Sun and allows the atmospheric parameters and chemical abundances to be determined by considering analysis units with different sensitivities to these various parameters.Results.Using high signal-to-noise spectra and the APASS method, we determined the atmospheric parameters and chemical abundances of 13 primary COROT targets. Our results agree well with those obtained by Bruntt using his software VWA and with those obtained with the software TEMPLOGG. However, in both cases, our error bars are significantly smaller than those of other methods. Our effective temperatures are also in excellent agreement with those obtained with the IR photometry method. For five stars with relatively low rotational velocity, we also performed an analysis with a classical equivalent-width method to test agreement with APASS results. We show that equivalent-width measurements by Gaussian or Voigt profile-fitting are sensitive to the rotational broadening, leading to systematic errors whenever the projected rotation velocity is non-negligible. The APASS method appears superior in all cases and should thus be preferred. [less ▲]

High pressure treatments produce gelified chicken meat patties with new properties thigh water retention and cohesive texture) and without salt or fat addition. In comparison with heat-induced patties, the pressurised patties present an equivalent hardness with better water binding properties. Pressurisation causes an increase of the colour lightness parameter (L*) and a decrease of redness (a*) and yellowness (b*); but the meat discoloration provoked by the pressure treatments is less significant than the colour changes induced by heating. The pressure-gelation of chicken meat patties is affected by the intensity, the duration and the temperature of the process. The elevation of pressure from 400 to 600 MPa enhances the texture qualities and the water binding capacity of formed gels. A positive effect on texture quality. is observed by prolonging the pressurisation time up to 30 min. The pressurisation temperature (between 15 and 40 degreesC) has no effect on product quality. Addition of salt (fat) prevents (reduces) the gelation ability of meat patties under pressure, whereas it improves the texture of heat-induced gels. [less ▲]
