The first part of the talk will be dedicated to the investigation of medicinal plants with the objective to identify new antimalarial treatments. According to the last World Malaria Report [1], there were 584 000 deaths for 198 millions malaria cases worldwide in 2013. Particularly, the disease caused an estimated 437 000 African children died before their fifth birthday, still in 2013. Malaria is caused by a parasite, Plasmodium sp. and transmitted by Anopheles mosquitoes. The problem of parasite resistance towards common available medicines such as chloroquine, mefloquine, quinine, is increasing. In this context, the vegetal kingdom remains the main source of pharmacologically active compounds against this parasitic infection as attested by the famous quinine, isolated from Cinchona sp., artemisinin extracted from Artemisia annua and also atovaquone derived from lapachol found in several Bignoniaceae. All these substances are related to plants with traditional use against fever and malaria. Beside these well-known examples, various new antiplasmodial compounds are frequently discovered from Nature, particularly following an ethnopharmacological approach, as reviewed by several authors in recent years [2-6]. Then, the pharmacological and phytochemical study of plants from traditional pharmacopoeias can be of first interest not only to discover new antimalarial “lead compounds”, but also to valorize local vegetal species whose efficacy and safety would have been demonstrated in laboratory and by clinical investigations [7,8]. Some results obtained with Dicoma tomentosa from Burkina-Faso [9] and Terminalia mollis from Rwanda [10] will be presented. In the second part of the talk, two applications of biotechnology for the production of artemisinin and paclitaxel and then some works developed at the ‘Université de la Réunion’ will be presented. In the framework of this collaboration, Psiadia arguta, an endemic plant from Reunion Island, which is known to have cytotoxic, anti-plasmodial and anti-inflammatory properties, was subjected to micropropagation. The objective of the work was to compare the biological properties and the phytochemical composition of callus, vitroplants and acclimatized plants of Psiadia arguta [11]. 1.

With a specific focus on the themes of construction, subversion and transformation, this collection of essays makes an innovative contribution to the study of genders and sexual identity in the Middle Ages. Scholars from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds deal with the presentation or transformation of gender, third-gender, and the relationship between gender and sexual identity in fields such as literature, hagiography, and art history, from the Anglo-Saxon period to the early sixteenth century. The contributors offer in-depth analyses on specific subjects—including French romance literature, saints’ vitae, Italian visual cultures, and manuscript studies—as well as providing food for thought for scholars outside medieval studies who are interested in the themes of gender transformation and presentation. Engaging with current academic debates over the complexities and pluralities of gender identity in the Middle Ages, this volume is one of the first collections to show how the themes of gender construction and transformation can be applied over a wide range of fields.

Valorization strategies of wastes from agri-food processes are intertwined with clean technological approaches and eco-industrial management. By-products from Mediterranean agri-food processes such as olive oil, wine and fruit create a considerable disposal problem for the agro-industry. Their characteristics in combination with Mediterranean climate enhance microbial development and can be source of health and safety concerns. After pre-treatment and recovery of valuable precursor materials (lignin, pulp), pyrolysis can be used for fuels, chemicals and carbon bio-based materials production. Since thermal degradation kinetic studies are a key step for the efficient design of thermo-chemical processes, in this study pyrolysis experiments were performed, using TGA for the estimation of the process kinetic parameters. The independent parallel reaction model validat- ed against experimental results, showing a good agreement with experimental data, with deviation values rang- ing from 1.07 to 3.54%. [less ▲]
