Between January 1985 and March 1989 we retrospectively observed Multiple System Organ Failure (MSOF) in 16 of 460 children (3.5%) who underwent cardiac surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass for congenital heart disease. MSOF was arbitrarily defined as a clinical entity with failure of two or more vital organ systems associated with high fever, thrombocytopenia, and cardiocirculatory insufficiency and occurring within the first postoperative week. In 13 children the first clinical manifestations of MSOF were evident on the first postoperative day and in the other 3 on the second or third postoperative day. All children showed acute renal failure, acute hepatic failure, high fever, and thrombocytopenia. Most of them showed respiratory insufficiency and neurological involvement. Seven of the 16 children died. Four of the 9 surviving patients had neurological sequelae still present 6 months after the operation, and the others recovered completely. [less ▲]

Arrhythmias occur as a life-threatening complication in adults with severe head injuries. A wide spectrum of brady- and tachyarrhythmias and different pathogenetic mechanisms have been described. We report an 8-year-old boy with traumatic brain injury who developed a variety of independent types of arrhythmias during the course of his illness, including supraventricular and ventricular extrasystoles, prolonged QT duration and ventricular fibrillation, accelerated junctional rhythm, and reentry tachycardia. Each arrhythmia may have had a distinct pathogenic pathway, and not all were associated with raised intracranial pressure. [less ▲]

Multiple-breath N2 washouts (WO) and washins (WI) were performed during regular tidal breathing in 11 unsedated healthy steers approaching pulmonary functional maturity (mean body weight = 271 kg). They inspired 20% O2 in 80% Ar during the WO and air during the WI. For each steer, we computed two indexes of ventilation inhomogeneity from the N2 WO curves: 1) the curvilinearity of the logarithm of end-tidal N2 concentrations as a function of cumulative expired volume reflected in the ratio of two slopes fitted between 100 and 50% and between 50 and 10%, respectively, of end-tidal N2 concentration of the first breath of the WO; and 2) the N2 phase III slope divided by the mean expired concentration (Sn) of each breath also plotted as a function of cumulative expired volume. Equivalent computation of both parameters was done on WI and WO curves, and similar results were obtained. The mean slope ratio was 0.812 +/- 0.119 (SD) for all the steers, which is consistent with topographic gravity-dependent specific ventilation distribution inhomogeneity. Sn was independent of the breath number both for WO and WI (mean Sn = 0.130 +/- 0.057 liters-1), suggesting that emptying between unequally ventilated units, is synchronous. This behavior resembles that observed in rats postmortem (S. Verbanck, E.R. Weibel, and M. Paiva. J. Appl Physiol. 71: 847-854, 1991) but contrasts with experiments in humans, in whom convection-dependent ventilation inhomogeneities generate a marked increase in Sn throughout the entire WO (A. B. H. Crawford, M. Makowska, M. Paiva, and L. A. Engel. J. Appl. Physiol. 59: 838-846, 1985). This is surprising because one would expect gravity-dependent sequential emptying in animals of this size.

The response of two willow clones (Salix fragilis (Sf) and S. aurita (Sa)) to the presence of metals (Zn, Cu, Cd, Ni) was studied. Rooted cuttings were planted in control and contaminated soil. After 100 days, different parameters (biomass, chlorophyll fluorescence (Fv/Fm), pigment and sugar concentrations, electrolyte leakage and proteome-level changes) were analyzed. The growth of Sa was not influenced by metals whereas Sf produced significantly less biomass when exposed to the pollutants. Furthermore, although Sa did not show a growth reduction in the presence of metals, the overall view of the physiological results among others the changes in the accumulation of sugars and pigments indicated that metals had a more severe impact on this clone. The response at the proteome level confirmed these observations. The growth reduction and the proteomic changes in Sf indicate that this clone adjusts its metabolism to maintain cellular homeostasis. Sa on the contrary maintains growth but the physiological and proteomics data suggests that this can only be done at the cost of cellular deregulation. Therefore high biomass is not linked with a good tolerance strategy. In a long-term study the survival of Sa might be compromised making it a poorer candidate for phytoremediation efforts. [less ▲]

One of the main interesting concerns in work about numeration systems is studying the relationship that exist between arithmetic properties of numbers and syntactical properties of their representation. More precisely, we prefer to manipulate set of numbers whose representations are characterized by very simple syntactical rules, that is, forming a regular language. Such sets are called S-recognizable sets, where S is the numeration system we are working with. In particular, we would like to obtain numeration systems in which the whole set N is recognizable, partly due to the fact that, if the set of representations of all integers is regular, there are very simple algorithms making it possible to decide if a word stands or does not stand for a number. Some general questions in this area are the following. • Characterization of the recognizable parts in a fixed numeration system. • Determination of the numeration systems for which a given set of numbers is recognizable. • To examine the stability of recognizability under arithmetic operations. In this poster we present our research about that last problem. First, we will define the abstract numeration systems based on a regular language. Then we will study the relationship between multiplication by a constant and the S-recognizability for languages of the type a_1^∗ . . . a_k^∗. [less ▲]

Since several years, research efforts have been focused towards improving the reproductive potential of domestic animals. The authors present a review of different technics in particular the superovulation and priming, embryo micromanipulation and clonage. The technic of superovulation allows an increase of the total number fo the offspring by an increase of the ovocytes total number. Different FSH injections at the end of the cycle, preceded by small FSH quantity at the beginning of the cycle, procure a great number of mature follicles available for reproduction. Micromanipulation allows a multiplicaton by sectioning the embryo in two or more segments. Isolated blastmeres can also be used but it was observed that those cells very rapidly loose their differentiation potential. Clonage allows the reproduction of an animal from only one of his own cells. The nucleus of this cell is extracted and reimplanted in an enucleated ovocyte. Meanwhile from a practical point of vue, this technic is, at present, only possible using a stem cell and not using a mature somatic cell. [less ▲]

Dermatophytes are human and animal pathogenic fungi which cause cutaneous infections and grow exclusively in the stratum corneum, nails and hair. In a culture medium containing soy proteins as sole nitrogen source a substantial proteolytic activity was secreted by Trichophyton rubrum, Trichophyton mentagrophytes and Microsporum canis. This proteolytic activity was 55-75% inhibited by o-phenanthroline, attesting that metalloproteases were secreted by all three species. Using a consensus probe constructed on previously characterized genes encoding metalloproteases (MEP) of the M36 fungalysin family in Aspergillus fumigatus, Aspergillus oryzae and M. canis, a five-member MEP family was isolated from genomic libraries of T rubrum, T mentagrophytes and M. canis. A phylogenetic analysis of genomic and protein sequences revealed a robust tree consisting of five main clades, each of them including a MEP sequence type from each dermatophyte species. Each MEP type was remarkably conserved across species (72-97% amino acid sequence identity). The tree topology clearly indicated that the multiplication of MEP genes in dermatophytes occurred prior to species divergence. In culture medium containing soy proteins as a sole nitrogen source secreted Meps accounted for 19-36% of total secreted protein extracts; characterization of protein bands by proteolysis and mass spectrometry revealed that the three dermatophyte species secreted two Meps (Mep3 and Mep4) encoded by orthologous genes.

High multiplicity scheduling problems arise naturally in contemporary production settings where manufacturers combine economies of scale with high product variety. Despite their frequent occurrence in practice, the complexity of high multiplicity problems - as opposed to classical, single multiplicity problems - is in many cases not well understood. In this paper, we discuss various concepts and results that enable a better understanding of the nature and complexity of high multiplicity scheduling problems. The paper extends the framework presented in Brauner et al. [Journal of Combinatorial Optimization (2005) Vol. 9, pp. 313-323] for single machine, non-preemptive high multiplicity scheduling problems, to more general classes of problems. [less ▲]
