En 2011, la escritora mexicana Valeria Luiselli publica su primera novela, Los ingrávidos, cuyo título alude al proceso de afantasmamiento de los dos narradores: una narradora notablemente similar a la propia Luiselli y el poeta mexicano Gilberto Owen. Narración en primera persona y parecidos con el autor por un lado, fenómenos indiscutiblemente inverosímiles por otro, el libro reúne todos los ingredientes de lo que el teórico francés Vincent Colonna llamó “autoficción fantástica”. Sin embargo, en una de sus entrevistas, Luiselli declara que “no quería escribir una novela fantástica”, y, más aún, “que [se] moriría si alguien dice que Los ingrávidos es una novela de ese estilo, estaría profundamente indignada” (Barbosa Vera, Scofaulos 2012). Aunque el efecto fantástico no siempre dependa de la intención de un autor, en este caso preciso Valeria Luiselli parece tener razón. De hecho, un examen detenido de la obra revela una antinomia: sin ser fantástica, Los ingrávidos es una autoficción “de ese estilo”. Es sobre esa antinomia que esta comunicación inclina la perspectiva. Después de un sucinto resumen, nos centremos en primer lugar en los indicios autoficcionales de la novela y luego en sus componentes fantásticos, examinando con más detenimiento los que impiden que el libro se adhiera a esa modalidad, a saber, los moduladores de duda, los comentarios metadiegéticos y la no fiabilidad de la narradora.

In conclusion, from our own experience of laparoscopic surgery in DRC, we strongly believe that there is no reason to develop inguinal laparoscopic repair in developing countries. Laparoscopic repairs are more expensive and more difficult to perform and to learn. The next step of abdominal wall repairs in the developing world should focus on teaching the surgeons to use either commercial or low-cost mosquito meshes in open repairs and assessing the results of these procedures in such challenging medical and surgical environments.

Deleterious effect of oral corticosteroids on bone has been well documented, whereas this remains debated for inhaled ones (ICS). Our objectives were to analyze the effects of ICS on bone mineral density, fracture risk and bone markers. We performed an exhaustive systematic research of all controlled trials potentially containing pertinent data, peer-reviewed by a dedicated WHO expert group, and comprehensive meta-analyses of the data. Inclusion criteria were ICS, and BMD/markers/fractures in asthma/chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases (COPD) and healthy patients. Analyses were performed in a conservative fashion using professional dedicated softwares and stratified by outcome, study design and ICS type. Results were expressed as standardized mean difference/effect size (ES), relative risk (RR) or odds ratio (OR), depending on study design and outcome units. Publication bias was investigated. Twenty-three trials were reviewed; 11 papers fit the inclusion criteria and were assessed for the main analysis. Quality scores for the randomized controlled trials (RCTs) were 80%, 71% for the prospective cohort studies, and 78% for the retrospective cohort and cross-sectional studies. We globally assessed ICS effects on BMD and found deleterious effects: ES=0.61 (p=0.001) for healthy subjects, and ES=0.27 (p<0.001) for asthma/COPD patients. For these patients, this effect was 0.21 (p<0.01) at the lumbar spine, and 0.26 (p<0.001) at the hip or femoral neck. A single study evaluated the impact of ICS on hip fracture and reported an increased OR of 1.6 (1.24; 2.03). Lumbar fracture rate differences did not reach the level of statistical significance: 1.87 (0.5; 6.94). Osteocalcin and PICP were decreased and ICTP, pyridinoline and deoxypyridinoline levels were not significantly affected. Budesonide (BUD) appeared to be the ICS inducing the less deleterious effects on bone, followed by beclomethasone dipropionate (BDP) and triamcinolone (TRI). Publication bias investigation provided non-significant results. In our meta-analyses, BUD at a mean daily dose (SD) of 686 mug (158 mug), BDP at 703 mug (123 mug) and TRI at 1000 mug (282 mug) were found to affect bone mineral density and markers in patients suffering from the two major respiratory diseases. These findings could have practical implication in the long-term management of asthmatic and COPD patients. [less ▲]

This study investigated the effect of inhaled fluticasone on lower airway inflammation and bronchial responsiveness (BR) to inhaled carbachol in cats with very mild, chronic bronchitis (n = 5) that were compared with healthy cats serving as controls (n = 6). Chest radiographs, BR tests performed non-invasively by barometric whole body plethysmography (BWBP) and bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) were performed before and after treatment. BR was quantified by calculating the concentration of carbachol inducing bronchoconstriction (C-Penh300%), defined as a 300% increase of baseline Penh, an index of bronchoconstriction obtained by BWBP. BAL fluid was analyzed cytologically and the oxidant marker 8-iso-PGF2α was determined. At test 1, healthy cats and cats with bronchitis were untreated, whereas for test 2 inhalant fluticasone (250 μg once daily) was administrated for 2 consecutive weeks to cats with bronchitis. Control cats remained untreated. Inhaled fluticasone induced a significant increase in C-Penh300% and a significant decrease of BAL fluid total cells, macrophages, neutrophils and 8-iso-PGF2α in cats with bronchitis, whilst untreated control cats did not show significant changes over time. This study shows that a 2-week fluticasone treatment significantly reduced lower airway inflammation in very mild bronchitis. BR could be successfully monitored in cats using BWPB and decreased significantly in response to inhaled fluticasone. 8-Iso-PGF2α in BAL fluid was responsive to treatment and appeared as a sensitive biomarker of lower airway inflammation in cats.

The reduction of the thermal background emission from the local and exozodiacal dust clouds is a critical element for the success of ESA's space mission, DARWIN. Internal modulation, a technique using fast signal chopping, isolating the planetary signal from these noise sources, was proposed by Mennesson and Léger. In this paper, a short review of internal modulation is given, and new configurations with internal modulation are proposed to reduce the complexity of the beam-combining optics. A modification to the implementation of internal modulation is then investigated. It provides similar performance with a single detector and a greatly simplified optical layout: the number of beam-combiners is reduced by a factor of about two. The principle of inherent modulation is different from internal modulation in that no sub-interferometers are used: different phase shifts are applied to the input beams before recombination such that an asymmetric transmission map is obtained directly, without plus or minuspi/2 modulation as used in internal modulation. By combining the phase shifts and the input beams differently a transposed transmission map is obtained, allowing the signal to be chopped. During operations, multiplexing between the two interferometers is performed, such that at any time only one interferometer is being used. [less ▲]

This paper studies the effects of variables pertaining to alternative bequest motives on the composition of households' portofolio. It relies on a 1986 survey on the assets structure of 5600 French households. The main conclusion is that bequest motives indeed influence the composition of households' wealth. However, available data does not allow one to sort out the influence of specific models of inheritance. [less ▲]

This paper reports a study on the sex determination system of the blue tilapia, Oreochromis aureus. Investigations were carried out using a pseudofemale line in two populations of O. aureus, known as Egyptian Population (EP) and Israel Population (IP). In O. aureus, males are the homogametic sex (ZZ/ZW), and sex reversal of fry with estradiol results in the production of some functional sex-reversed fish with a female phenotype and ZZ male genotype, known as pseudofemales or A-females. Crosses between ZZ pseudofemales and ZZ males theoretically should provide monosex ZZ male progeny only. We have studied the sex ratios of progeny from 43 IP (F-2 to F-3 generations) and 51 EP (F-1 to F-5 generations), pair-matings between normal males and pseudofemales. In IP, the male percentage in progenies ranged between 83% to 100% in F-2 and 66% to 100% in F-3. In EP, male percentage was more constant, varying from 88% to 100% in F-1, from 96% to 100% in F-3 and from 97% to 100% in F-5. In EP, F-2 and F-4 pseudofemales produced only monosex male progeny. This apparent difference in sex ratio frequency distributions between the two O. aureus pseudofemale lines could be due to the selection of males. EP pseudofemales were mated with their siblings for F-2 and F-3 pseudofemales or with closely related males for F-4 and F-5 pseudofemales. Conversely, IP pseudofemales were crossed with nonrelated males originating from research center broodstock, resulting in a higher proportion of females in sex ratio of progenies from successive generations of pseudofemales. The role of inbreeding is discussed in the context of predominantly monofactorial sex chromosome determination system operating in this species, influenced by other factors (genetic and environmental). The present study also shows that it is possible to fix the male sex determining factors (Z sex chromosome and genetic factors) in a line of pseudofemales, producing a high percentage of male progeny in five successive generations.

After failure of a monotherapy with metformin, dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitors (gliptins) and sodium-glucose cotransporters type 2 (gliflozins) offer an alternative to the add-on of a sulphonylurea, especially in diabetic patients at risk of hypoglycaemia. The choice between a gliptin and a gliflozin may be guided by the individual patient characteristics : rather a gliptin in a patient without obesity or severe hyperglycaemia, in an elderly patient, with a frailty profile or with renal impairment; rather a gliflozin in an obese patient, with hypertension, hyperuricaemia, antecedents of cardiovascular disease (especially heart failure), without advanced renal insufficiency and with a low risk of urinary/genital infections or events linked to dehydration such as hypotension.
