The severity of initial brain damage is an important risk factor in determining the prognosis of head trauma. It can be assessed by assigning neurological scores or by determining the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) activity of the isoenzyme creatine kinase-BB (CK-BB). In 10 severely head-injured patients serial CSF samples were obtained during the first 24 hours after trauma, and exponential decay of CK-BB activity with an average half-life of 4.5 hours was demonstrated. This finding led the authors to propose an "extrapolated" CK-BB activity, which theoretically occurs immediately after injury and is calculated from a single CK-BB recording, as a new index for assessing the degree of initial brain damage. In 50 patients with severe head injury, the prognostic ability of "observed" and "extrapolated" CK-BB activity was compared with two clinical scoring systems that evaluate severity of head trauma (the Glasgow and the Glasgow-Liege Coma Scales). "Extrapolated" CK-BB activity proved to be the best prognostic factor. With a CK-BB cutoff point of 330 U/liter, a true-positive rate of 79% and a true-negative rate of 73% were obtained. These results suggest the usefulness of measuring CK-BB activity in CSF as soon as possible after hospital admission for head injury. [less ▲]

Drugs used for the prevention and the treatment of osteoporosis exert various favourable and unfavourable extra-skeletal effects whose importance is increasingly recognized notably for treatment selection. INTRODUCTION: The therapeutic armamentarium for the prevention and the treatment of osteoporosis is increasingly large, and possible extra-skeletal effects of available drugs could influence the choice of a particular compound. METHODS: The present document is the result of a national consensus, based on a systematic and critical review of the literature. RESULTS: Observational research has suggested an inverse relationship between calcium intake and cardiovascular diseases, notably through an effect on blood pressure, but recent data suggest a possible deleterious effect of calcium supplements on cardiovascular risk. Many diverse studies have implicated vitamin D in the pathogenesis of clinically important non-skeletal functions or diseases, especially muscle function, cardiovascular disease, autoimmune diseases and common cancers. The possible effects of oral or intravenous bisphosphonates are well-known. They have been associated with an increased risk of oesophageal cancer or atrial fibrillation, but large-scale studies have not found any association with bisphosphonate use. Selective oestrogen receptor modulators have demonstrated favourable or unfavourable extra-skeletal effects that vary between compounds. Strontium ranelate has a limited number of non-skeletal effects. A reported increase in the risk of venous thromboembolism is not found in observational studies, and very rare cases of cutaneous hypersensitivity reactions have been reported. Denosumab has been introduced recently, and its extra-skeletal effects still have to be assessed. CONCLUSION: Several non-skeletal effects of bone drugs are well demonstrated and influence treatment choices. [less ▲]

OBJECTIVE: The systemic inflammatory response to cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) possibly increases microvascular permeability to plasma proteins, leading to capillary leak syndrome. The study was conducted to elucidate any protein leakage in newborns using Evans blue dye as tracer. DESIGN: Prospective controlled study. SETTING: University-affiliated heart center. PARTICIPANTS: Eleven neonates with transposition of the great arteries. INTERVENTIONS: Plasma interleukin-6 (IL-6), IL-10, fractional escape rate (FER) of an intravenous bolus of Evans blue, and colloid osmotic pressure (COP) were assessed before and after surgery (statistics: median and 25th-75th percentile, Friedman's 2-way analysis of variance, and Wilcoxon matched-pairs signed-rank test [before and after surgery]). MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS: All patients had an uneventful intraoperative course. The demographic and operative data were age 11 (10-13) days, body weight 3.2 (3.0-3.3) kg, CPB time 132 (123-144) minutes, and aortic cross-clamp time 66 (64-78) minutes. The proinflammatory IL-6 increased 60-fold and the anti-inflammatory IL-10 only 3-fold after CPB. FER, however, was not changed, whereas COP was significantly reduced after CPB. CONCLUSIONS: In contrast to the expectation, the escape rate of Evans blue, reflecting the extravasation of albumin, was not increased after CPB. However, reduced COP, hypothermia, and also a reduced lymphatic drainage may contribute to edema formation. The present data do not support the hypothesis of a capillary leak after CPB in newborns.

Cold-loving or psychrophilic organisms are widely distributed in nature as a large part of the earth's surface is at temperatures around 0 degrees C. To maintain metabolic rates and to prosper in cold environments, these extremophilic organisms have developed a vast array of adaptations. One main adaptive strategy developed in order to cope with the reduction of chemical reaction rates induced by low temperatures is the synthesis of cold-adapted or psychrophilic enzymes. These enzymes are characterized by a high catalytic activity at low temperatures associated with a low thermal stability. A study of protein adaptation strategies suggests that the high activity of psychrophilic enzymes could be achieved by the destabilization of the active site, allowing the catalytic center to be more flexible at low temperatures, whereas other protein regions may be destabilized or as rigid as their mesophilic counterparts. Due to these particular properties, psychrophilic enzymes offer a high potential not only for fundamental research but also for biotechnological applications. [less ▲]

We present a solution to improve the performances of coronagraphs in general for the detection of exo-planets. We simulate several kinds of coronagraphic systems using an IDL software, with the aim of evaluating the gain obtained using an adaptive hologram. The detection limit in flux ratio between a star and a planet observed with an apodized Lyot coronagraph characterized by wavefront bumpiness imperfections of lambda/20 (resp. lambda /100) turns out to be increased by a factor 1`000 (resp. 1`000`000) when equipped with an hologram. This technique could provide a direct imaging of an exo-earth at a distance of 11 parsec with a space telescope with a mirror quality analog to the HST, and with a diameter analog to the JWST.

Aims. We present a solution to improve the performance of coronagraphs for the detection of exo-planets. Methods. We simulate numerically several kinds of coronagraphic systems, with the aim of evaluating the gain obtained with an adaptive hologram. Results. The detection limit in flux ratio between a star and a planet (Fs /Fp ) observed with an apodized Lyot coronagraph characterized by wavefront bumpiness imperfections of λ/20 (resp. λ/100) turns out to be increased by a factor of 10^3.4 (resp. 10^5.1 ) when equipped with a hologram. Conclusions. This technique could provide direct imaging of an exo-Earth at a distance of 11 parsec with a 6.5 m space telescope such as the JWST with the optical quality of the HST. [less ▲]

Après une période de « dédiabolisation » et grâce à une base électorale croissante, de plus en plus de partis d'extrême droite européens se revendiquent aujourd’hui comme démocratiques. En écartant de la scène politique et médiatique leurs membres les plus violents, en respectant les procédures électorales et en proposant des programme alternatifs vis-à-vis des partis traditionnels, les organisations d’extrême droite s’intégreraient durablement au sein de nos systèmes politiques jusqu’à se présenter, dans certains pays, comme les véritables représentants du peuple, les défenseurs des libertés individuelles et les promoteurs d’une « véritable démocratie » loin des bureaucrates et technocrates de Bruxelles, loin des élites politiques et économiques qui ont confisqué le pouvoir aux citoyens. Liberté d’expression, laïcité, référendum, souveraineté populaire,… Autant de valeurs, autant de principes qui jettent la confusion dans un débat censé opposer la démocratie à l’extrême droite. Entre opposition et récupération, quels sont donc les liens qu’entretiennent les partis d’extrême droite avec la démocratie ? [less ▲]
