In his Mémoire sur l’intérieur de l’Afrique (An III de la République, 1794-95) the influential French scholar Joseph Jérôme Lefrançois de Lalande (1732-1807) outlines the goals of a project which directly links scientific exploration to the needs of the State, urging both men of learning and state officials to work closely together in the organization of research missions that enhance man’s knowledge of the geography, natural history and commerce of Africa’s yet unknown inner regions – in particular the vast area between Senegal and the Sudan. This paper analyzes Lalande’s aims, arguments and claims against the background of scientific, commercial, political and military tensions between France and Britain. It situates Lalande’s discourse within the broader context of the competing “science policies” of both states in the second half of the eighteenth century. The notion of “science policy” as a working hypothesis refers to the way a government applies the knowledge and expertise provided by the scientific world according to the needs of the country. It is an investigation of the sudden re-emergence of Africa as an object of knowledge in the relationship between power and science. The paper focuses on the continuous interaction between France and Britain in African affairs, and highlights the shift from a mere “enlightened” exploration from the 1720s to the 1780s – a period which saw, on the one hand, the progressive integration of useful knowledge gathered by explorers in African coastal regions into the French “colonial” system, and, on the other hand, the installation of an informal structure of knowledge transfer at the British side – towards Lalande’s revolutionary time – the 1790s – when Africa became the subject of a “Banksian” takeover, enhancing British interest in the “unknown” interior of the African continent by setting up large-scale, interrelated research missions with practical goals (the expeditions organized by the African Association, e.g. Mungo Park), but also provoking reactions from the French side, a reflection of which can be found in Lalande’s dissertation, thus stimulating a new wave of French initiatives in the field.

Introduction : L’importance physiologique de la paupière inférieure est souvent sous-estimée. Si la protection du globe oculaire est assurée essentiellement par la paupière supérieure, c’est la paupière inférieure qui assure le drainage lacrymal, complète l’occlusion palpébrale et joue un rôle important dans le regard et l’expression du visage. Choisir la technique simple et fiable pour reconstruire une perte de substance de la paupière inférieure et rétablir sa fonction et son esthétique est une épreuve pour le chirurgien. Objectifs et Méthodes : Nous rapportons notre expérience de 21 ans dans la reconstruction de la paupière inférieure par un lambeau hétéro-palpébral de la paupière supérieure. Discussion : Nous décrivons notre technique chirurgicale, les différents types de lambeaux, leurs indications et les gestes associés qui nous ont permis d’obtenir de très bon résultats fonctionnels et esthétiques chez 173 patients, porteurs de pathologies palpébrales variées : malformations congénitales, paralysie faciale, anophtalmie, brûlures, tumeurs, séquelles post traumatiques, ectropion involutif et complications post blépharoplastie esthétique. Conclusion : Dans la reconstruction de la paupière inférieure le lambeau hétéro- palpébral apporte des tissus identiques, un support dynamique, il soutient le globe oculaire et permet la réalisation des gestes associés.

The Saint-Denis altarpiece has been widely admired, commented and studied for a long time. Its conservation in the church, even after a new main altar in baroque style was placed in the choir, is an indication of the importance this work had acquired throughout time. Its painted wings were especially appreciated and were attributed to Lambert Lombard, Liège’s most renowned Renaissance painter, as early as the beginning of the 18th century. But this attribution has been discussed passionately, especially since the 1970’s. At the centre of these debate, we find a document dated 1533, discovered in 1958, naming a “Lambertum pictorem” working for Saint-Denis collegiate church. But this mention needs to be reconsidered and contextualised. This publication aims to present the content of this document and to dissect its meaning in the context of the making of the altarpiece, to which it has been related since its discovery. A new transcription will be provided and new archival material will be unveiled in order to shed a new light on this document as well as to give new paths to reconstruct the processes at work in the making of the altarpiece.

The State archives in Liège preserve some of the 16th century “fabrique“ accounts of the Saint Denis collegiate church of Liège. Among them, accounts of the year 1533 drew the attention of Jean Yernaux in his 1958 study about Lambert Lombard. Indeed he found what he thought to be the proof of the Liège Renaissance Master’s intervention in the painting of the Saint Denis Altarpiece panels, before giving up the attribution in 1970. Since then, these two mentions have been used to illustrate either the involvement of Lombard or of another painter named “Lambert” in the painting of the panels. But looking closer at the original document, it is obvious that Yernaux committed huge mistakes in the transcript of these mentions. Not only was he wrong about the sums paid to the artist but also about the work mentioned in this account. In order to understand this document fully and correctly, it is therefore essential to propose a transcription from which new interpretations can be generated. This new understanding can then lead to further contextualization of the mentions. These accounts need to be looked at in close relationship with the rest of the document. This would shed new light on the writer’s habits, especially when it comes to designate individuals. The amount of money given to the painter Lambert also needs to be assessed. Comparisons to other payments of the same period conserved in the archives of the Saint Denis church and of other churches in or around Liège are going to be unveiled and investigated. This will give interesting clues to understand better the extent of the work done by the artist as well as his social status. [less ▲]

Studies on the effect of wall shear stress on soil and biofilm attachment and removal from a surface are one of the many applications of radial axisymmetrical flow. The particular nature of this flow allows taking advantage of a wide range of wall shear Stress applied at the analyzed surface in a single experiment. This type of experiments provides a critical radius up to which soil removal occurs. Good models are, however, still needed to convert the experimental data into critical wall shear stress. Analytical models are already available for creeping flow but Computational Fluid Dynamics must be applied for experiments performed at higher Reynolds numbers. The present study is a numerical analysis of the radial axisymmetrical flow for aspect ratios of 0.125, 0.25, 0.5 and 1 with inlet pipe Reynolds numbers varying from 0 to 2000, aiming at computing the wall shear stress distribution at any distance from the center. The simulations provided a thorough description of the complex flow pattern encountered close to the inlet section, which were validated for the laminar regime by dye injection. A total of up to four recirculation zones were identified in both numerical and experimental investigations. The experimental positions of these recirculation zones corresponded well to the numerical predictions. Based on this work, a map of the flow for the different aspect ratios was developed, which can be particularly interesting for the design of experimental devices involving axisymmetrical flow.

Dietary fibres consist of edible plant polysaccharides that are resistant to digestion and absorption in the human small intestine but undergo complete or partial fermentation in the colon. Seaweeds, notably Laminaria spp, are particularly rich in polysaccharides resistant to hydrolysis in the upper gastrointestinal tract and are, in consequence, considered as dietary fibres. Most of the carbohydrates from Laminaria spp are thought to be indigestible by humans. The main storage polysaccharide of these algae is laminarin, a beta-polymer of glucose. The aims of this work were, on the one hand, to compare various methods of extraction of laminarin by partial characterisation of the product obtained and, on the other hand, to study the fate of this polysaccharide and its effects in the gastrointestinal tract in order to determine its potential as a dietary fibre in human nutrition. Among four methods tested to extract laminarin, the best appeared to be a hot HCl-based method. Human digestive enzymes did not hydrolyse laminarin, so this polysaccharide can be considered as a dietary fibre. After ingestion by rats, this polysaccharide was not found in faeces of these animals. It did not increase the intestinal transit and stool output in vivo, but it increased the contractile response of the stomach to acetylcholine in vitro. (C) 2004 Society of Chemical Industry.

Multicellular spheroids which promote cell-cell and cell-matrix interactions were prepared in culture with mouse B16 melanoma cells (pigmented or non pigmented) alone or mixed with mouse 3T3 fibroblasts. Their volume and proliferation or necrosis rate were evaluated. As measured by dot blot immunoassay, laminin was mainly produced by fibroblasts rather than by melanoma cells. High levels of laminin B1 chain mRNA were detected only in spheroids composed of 3T3 fibroblasts. The levels of 67 kD laminin binding protein mRNA were high in all cell populations studied here.

Among the various known laminin binding proteins, the 67 kD high affinity laminin receptor (LR) is intimately involved during tumor invasion and metastasis. In this study, we report that laminin and fibronectin, two attachment glycoproteins, significantly increased the total cellular level of 67 kD LR mRNA in two human cancer cell lines, T47D breast carcinoma cells and A2058 melanoma cells. Neither GRGDS nor YIGSR synthetic peptides induced such a stimulatory effect. Since the steady state level of LR mRNA has been shown to control the number of receptors expressed at the cell surface, these results suggest that contact of the cancer cells with laminin and fibronectin in the host matrix may be an important regulatory mechanism by which cancer cells maintain a high number of LR at their cell surface as they progress through the several steps of tumoral invasion and metastasis.
