BACKGROUND: Several papers have reported an association of high CA125 serum levels with advanced non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) as well as a relationship between high CA125 values and poor outcome. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Ninety-nine patients with NHL or Hodgkin's disease (HD) underwent serum CA125 assessment at diagnosis. Gender, age, presence of B symptoms, performance status (PS), histology, sites of tumor involvement, presence of effusion, clinical stage, age-adjusted International Prognostic Index, C-reactive protein (CRP), Hb, lactate deshydrogenase (LDH) and beta2-microglobulin were evaluated for their association with serum CA125 levels. The impact of CA125 levels and other features on overall (OS) and progression-free (PFS) survival was also assessed. RESULTS: CA125 serum levels were elevated in 34% of the patients, including 19% of patients with aggressive NHL, 45% of patients with indolent NHL, and 29% of patients with HD. Univariate analyses showed that CA125 levels correlated with poor PS, the presence of B symptoms, advanced clinical stage, abdominal, bone marrow or mediastinal involvement, presence of effusions, high aaIPI, low Hb levels and high CRP, LDH or beta2-microglobulin levels. In multivariate analysis, bone marrow involvement, the presence of effusions, and high aaIPI were all associated with high CA125 serum levels. In univariate analyses, OS and PFS were affected by age (PFS only), poor PS, B symptoms, advanced clinical stage, bone marrow or abdominal involvement (PFS only), high aaIPI, low Hb, high CRP or beta2-microglobulin levels. OS and PFS were not different in patients with normal or elevated CA125 levels. Multivariate analyses showed significantly inferior OS and PFS in patients with high beta2-microglobulin but no influence of CA125. CONCLUSION: While CA125 serum level correlates significantly with a number of features associated with more aggressive disease, it does not enhance the performance of standard prognostic markers in the management of patients with NHL or HD.

En partant des analyses grammaticales de Ludwig Wittgenstein, essentiellement des Recherches philosophiques, l’article interroge la pertinence du modèle intentionaliste mobilisé en philosophie de l’esprit, tant dans sa version « internaliste » qu’« externaliste ». Il récuse aussi bien l’acception internaliste qui conçoit l’intentionnalité comme la structure d’un vécu psychique que l’acception externaliste qui considère que l’intention est l’action elle-même et qu’elle se détermine, non pas par un vécu psychique, mais par le récit élargi du contexte dans lequel elle s’inscrit. En amont de cette distinction, l’article adopte une conception grammaticale du meinen (vouloir-dire) et souligne son statut exclusivement conceptuel. [less ▲]

Our argument is that there are inconsistencies between policy and local practices in the poverty reduction programs. It seems that the life of the people is more vulnerable and more dependent on the instability of the market. The case study of Hoa Binh province indicates that the selection of beneficiaries for the poverty reduction programs based on the national poverty line cannot be suitable. The implementation of the poverty reduction programs was not based on the specific characteristics of each region. Smallholders are, in many cases, forced to abandon all or part of their forest areas. [less ▲]

Estimation of kinetic parameters is a key step in modelling, as direct measurements are often expensive, time-consuming or even infeasible. The class of dynamic models in polynomial form is particularly relevant in systems biology and biochemical engineering, as those models naturally arise from modelling biochemical reactions using for instance mass action, Michaelis-Menten or Hill kinetics. Often the parameters are not uniquely identifiable for a given model structure and measurement set. Thus the question of which parameters are consistent or inconsistent with the data arises naturally. Here we present a method capable of proving inconsistency of entire parameter regions with the data. Based on the polynomial representation of the system, we formulate a feasibility problem that can be solved efficiently by semi-definite programming. The feasibility problem allows us to check consistency of entire parameter regions by using upper and lower bounds on the parameters. This drastically limits the search space for subsequent parameter estimation methods. In contrast to similar approaches in the literature, the here presented approach does not require a steady state assumption. Measurements at discrete time points are used, but neither regular sampling intervals, nor a time discretisation of the system is required. Measurement uncertainties are dealt with using upper and lower bounds on the measured states. [less ▲]

Hurricane winds affect the flow around electrical conductor in a way that it may reach the critical (Drag crisis) and postcritical states. It is thus important to introduce the cable aerodynamic drag as Reynolds-dependent when calculating the response of the power transmission line under hurricane. To represent the respective wind loading on cable, the turbulent, spatially non-uniform wind model is used. In order to assess the behaviour and cyclic fatigue loads under hurricane conditions of different transmission line conductors, the time response analyses were done. Results of comparative study of the smooth cable AERO-Z and classical multistrand cable, including the percentage of load reduction offered to supporting structure, are presented. [less ▲]
