Polycations are frequently reported to tailor drug delivery systems, there is still a need to better correlate theirmacromolecular features with their biocompatibility, in particular with blood. In this view, we have analysed the RBC aggregation and hemolysis response caused by poly (dimethylamino-ethylmethacrylate) or poly(ethyleneimine) under a free form, i.e. without their preliminary association with polyanionic drug. Our results highlight that the molecular weight of PDMAEMA significantly affects theRBC aggregationwithout inducing any hemolysis. [less ▲]

Thesauri are used for document referencing. They define hierarchies of domains. We show how document and domain contents can be used to validate and update a classification based on a thesaurus. We use document indexing and classification techniques to automate these operations. We also draft a methodology to systematically address those issues. Our techniques are applied to Urbamet, a thesaurus in the field of town planning. [less ▲]

This paper investigates the differences in the return generating process of venture capital (VC)-backed firms and their peers that operate without VC financing. Using a unique hand-picked database of 990 VC-backed Belgian firms and a complete population of Belgian small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), we focus on the extent to which the presence of a VC investor affects the sensitivity of a firm’s returns to the changes in the capital structure, in the operating cycle, and in the industry dynamics. The differences may stem from the (self-) selection of better companies into VC portfolios, from the venture capitalists’ (VCs) value-adding activities, and/or from both. We examine these factors in the context of a complex simulation procedure which allows separating selection from value-adding when traditional approaches are difficult to implement. Our results indicate that VC-backed firms are able to extract more rent from the changing industry conditions and from the optimizations in their capital structure. The presence of VCs in the firm’s equity seems to have only a marginal effect on the operating cycle efficiency. Overall, the results are suggestive of the value-adding being the main driver of the VC-backed firm’s performance. [less ▲]

We present a cooperative framework for content-based image retrieval for the realistic setting where images are distributed across multiple cooperating servers. The proposed method is in line with bag-of-features approaches but uses fully data-independent, randomized structures, shared by the cooperating servers, to map image features to common visual words. A coherent, global image similarity measure (which is a kernel) is computed in a distributed fashion over visual words, by only requiring a small amount of data transfers between nodes. Our experiments on various image types show that this framework is a very promising step towards large-scale, distributed content-based image retrieval. [less ▲]

This paper presents an incremental secant mean-field homogenization process for composite materials made of elasto–plastic constituents, which can exhibit damage. In this formulation, the residual stress and strain states reached in the phases upon a fictitious elastic unloading, are considered as starting point to apply the secant method. The mean stress fields in the phases are then computed using isotropic secant tensors, which are naturally used to define the Linear Comparison–Composite. The method, remains simple in its formulation, is applied on various problems involving elastic, elasto–plastic and perfectly–plastic phases, to demonstrate its accuracy compared to other existing MFH methods. The method is particularly attractive when the damaging process is accounted for in the matrix phase. Indeed, during the damaging process of one phase, the secant method can account for the resulting unloading of the other phase, ensuring an accurate prediction of the scheme, when compared to direct numerical simulations.

Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) is a gut hormone secreted in response to a meal ingestion, which is rapidly degraded by a specific enzyme, dipeptidylpeptidase-4 (DPP-4). It enhances insulin secretion in a glucose-dependent manner, inhibits glucagon secretion, retards gastric emptying,... Two pharmacological approaches have been developed to increase the abnormally low GLP-1 levels in type 2 diabetic patients: either to subcutaneously inject an agent closed to GLP-1 (exenatide), which is partially resistant to the action of DPP-4, either to orally administer a selective DPP-4 inhibitor (sitagliptin,...). These new drugs offer improved blood glucose control of type 2 diabetic patients, without inducing hypoglycaemia and with favourable effects on body weight. [less ▲]

Le lapin européen est une espèce dont la prolificité légendaire pourrait suffire à expliquer la formidable expansion à travers le monde. Pourtant, on dit rarement qu’Oryctolagus cuniculus est également sédentaire au dernier degré. Si on peut, sans nul doute, en certains lieux, classer le lapin parmi les espèces envahissantes, cela n’est dû qu’à l’assistance obstinée des humains. Les tribulations du lapin sont marquées de « captures », « rencontres » et « bifurcations », une collection d’épisodes pris entre invention et violence destructrice, qu’une logique linéaire ne permet pas de décrire. Elles sont pour nous un exemple type de ces proliférations qui s’échappent des multiples noeuds de relations hommes - techniques – nature et qui expriment la pluralité des modes d’existence du vivant.

Chryseobacterium and other genera belonging to the family Flavobacteriaceae include organisms that can behave as human pathogens and are known to cause different kinds of infections. Several Flavobacteriaceae, including Chryseobacterium indologenes, are naturally resistant to beta-lactam antibiotics (including carbapenems), due to the production of a resident metallo-beta-lactamase. Although C. indologenes presently constitutes a limited clinical threat, the incidence of infections caused by this organism is increasing in some settings, where isolates that exhibit multidrug resistance phenotypes (that include aminoglycosides and quinolones) have been described. Here we report the identification and characterization of a new IND-type variant from a C. indologenes isolate from Burkina Faso resistant to beta-lactams and aminoglycosides. Its sequence identity with other IND-type metallo-beta-lactamases ranges from 72 to 90% (with IND-4 and IND-5, respectively). The purified enzyme exhibited N-terminal heterogeneity and a post-translational modification, consisting in the presence of a pyroglutamate residue at the N-terminus. IND-6 shows a broad substrate profile, with overall higher turnover rates than IND-5 and higher activities than IND-2 and IND-5 against ceftazidime and cefepime. [less ▲]

Indacaterol is a novel ultra long-acting beta 2-agonist (ultra-LABA), given once-daily, developed for the treatment of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). The clinical studies suggest that indacaterol produces a rapid (within 5 minutes) and sustained bronchodilation (at least 24 hours) in patients with COPD. It improves also several important parameters as lung function, the quality of life, symptoms, exercise capacity, resting and dynamic hyperinflation, and exacerbations, while being well tolerated. These outcomes justify its use in moderate to very severe COPD patients. This review will give a brief summary of recent clinical data on the indacaterol, its comparison with other pharmacological agents used in the treatment of COPD, and also some information about its use in routine.

In a manichean ideal, one expects unreservedly a clear-cut distinction between benign melanocytic neoplasms and the malignant ones. Such a distinction is commonly established by a clinico-pathologic confrontation for the majority of neoplasms. However, the boundaries may be blurred and uncertain for some lesions. We present an exploratory clinicopathologic algorithm of the border area between seemingly benign and seemingly malignant melanocytic neoplasms. The concept of a group of neoplasms called skin melanocytomas shed some light on such quandaries where the risk of misdiagnosis is quite high. [less ▲]
