Obesity plays a key role in the pathophysiology of type 2 diabetes (T2DM), and weight loss is a major objective, although difficult to achieve with medical treatments. Bariatric surgery has proven its efficacy in obtaining marked and sustained weight loss, and is also associated with a significant improvement in glucose control and even diabetes remission. Roux-en-Y gastric bypass appears to be more effective in diabetic patients than the restrictive gastroplasty procedure. This may be explained not only by greater weight reduction, but also by specific hormonal changes. Indeed, increased levels of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) and glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) may lead to improved beta-cell function and insulin secretion as well as reduced insulin resistance associated with weight loss. The presence of T2DM in obese individuals is a further argument to propose bariatric surgery, and even more so when diabetes is difficult to manage by medical means and other weight-related complications may occur. Bariatric surgery is associated with a better cardiovascular prognosis and reduced mortality, even though acute and long-term complications are present. The observation that surgical rerouting of nutrients triggers changes in the release of incretin hormones that, in turn, ameliorate the diabetic state in the absence of weight loss has led to the recent development of innovative surgical procedures. Thus, bariatric surgery may be said to be progressing towards so-called 'metabolic surgery', which merits further evaluation in patients with T2DM within a multidisciplinary approach that involves both surgeons and endocrinologists.

We investigated the dissolved and excess particulate Ba distribution (Ba-xs, an estimate of biogenic Ba considered to consist mainly of barite [BaSO4]) across the complex frontal system of the Crozet-Kerguelen Basin (Southern Ocean; 42-47 degrees S, 62-65 degrees E). Ba-xs profiles show the characteristic mesopelagic maximum (depth range between 150 and 400 in) reaching up to 1000 pM in the Subantarctic Zone and Subtropical Front, the highest value observed for Southern Ocean mesopelagic waters. Dissolved Ba (concentrations between 38 and 104 nM) correlates with silicate and alkalinity, but the regression is not perfect, reflecting the involvement of different biogenic carriers in the control of the water column distribution of these compounds. Dissolved Ba in the upper 500 in appears strongly influenced by cross-frontal exchanges, involving both northward and southward transport of water masses. In the mesopelagic waters (150-400 m) of the Polar Front Zone, a dissolved Ba depletion faces the Ba, maximum. This depletion appears mainly maintained by cross-frontal advection of waters containing less Ba and originating north of the Subantarctic Front. Overall, no clear evidence that precipitation of barite reflected by the occurrence of Baxs maxima does measurably influence the distribution of dissolved Ba was found. (C) 2004 Elsevier B.V.

The fractions of odd and even isotopes of barium in the metal-poor star HD140283 are determined from an analysis of the profile of the Ba II resonance line, taking advantage of the differences in hyperfine structure splitting between the different isotopes. Although one would expect an increased contribution of the r-process in very metal-poor stars, it is found that the isotopic ratio is very close to solar. [less ▲]

In chemical ecology, the roles played by root-emitted volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in biotic interactions and the quantitative analysis of such chemicals in root tissues remain poorly documented. In this context, this study aims at using a fully automated gas chromatography – mass spectrometry methodology allowing both identification and accurate quantification of VOCs produced by roots of a monocotyledonous plant species at five selected developmental stages from germination to the end of tillering. Results show that barley roots mainly produce four volatile aldehydes, namely hexanal, (E)-hex-2-enal, (E)-non-2-enal and (E,Z)-nona-2,6-dienal. These molecules are well-known linoleic and linolenic acid derivatives produced via the lipoxygenase/hydroperoxide lyase pathway of higher plants. Our findings contrast with analyses documented on aboveground barley tissues that mainly emit C6 aldehydes, alcohols and their corresponding esters. Multivariate statistical analyses performed on individual VOC concentrations indicate quantitative changes in the volatile profile produced by barley roots according to plant age. Barley roots produced higher total and individual VOC concentrations when young seminal roots emerged from the coleorhizae compared to older phenological stages. Moreover, results also show that the C6/C9 volatile aldehyde ratio was the lowest at the end of tillering while the maximum mean value of this ratio was reached in seven day-old barley roots.

A West Florida Shelf (WFS) model based on the Regional Ocean Model System (ROMS) is nested in the 1/12° North Atlantic Hybrid Coordinate Ocean Model (NAT HYCOM). The nesting procedure is based on a flow relaxation scheme, and the model implementation is tested against in situ data over a one-year hindcast simulation. While the focus of NAT HYCOM is the large-scale circulation, the aim of this study is to show that the NAT HYCOM results can be improved by nesting a regional model with increased resolution. Results are compared qualitatively to sea surface height and quantitatively to in situ temperature and velocity measurements on the shelf. The nesting of a regional model improves the performance on the shelf. The inclusion of tides is a new addition, and preliminary results are shown. [less ▲]

The clinical features of brachycephalic airway obstructive disease in 11 brachycephalic dogs are described in this study. The respiratory strategy was assessed before (n = 11) and after (n = 6) surgery using barometric whole-body plethysmography (BWBP), with the relationship between BWBP variables and the severity of the clinical signs assessed by the use of a respiratory score based on clinical, radiographic and endoscopic findings. Partial collapse of the left main bronchus was a common finding not previously described as part of the brachycephalic airway obstructive disease syndrome. Epiglottic cysts, laryngeal granulomas and nasopharyngeal turbinates in English Bulldogs were other previously unreported findings. No significant correlation between the respiratory score and any of the BWBP variables was detected. Compared to healthy dogs, brachycephalic dogs had a significantly lower Te/Ti ratio (expiratory time over inspiratory time), peak inspiratory flow (PIF) per kg bodyweight (BW), significantly higher peak expiratory flow (PEF) per kg BW, PEF/PIF, and enhanced pause. These variations are compatible with upper airway obstructions primarily in the extrathoracic airways. Following surgery, a significant decrease in PEF/PIF was detected. The study showed that BWBP could be used to characterise the respiratory strategy in brachycephalic dogs before and after surgery. [less ▲]

We investigate barotropic and baroclinic oscillations in strongly stratified basins using the Black Sea as a test case. The GHER 3D-model, which has active free surface and temperature and salinity fields as scalar state variables produces model results which are then analysed with a focus on barotropic and baroclinic waves at different scales. The model is forced by seasonally variable climatic data and river run-off. High frequency oscillations of the sea level simulated by the model are compared against observations. It is found that phases and amplitudes are simulated realistically. For the density field, long internal gravity waves dominate the solution in the sub-inertial range, The amplitudes of these oscillations increase over the continental slope, which provides an efficient mechanism for mixing in the western Black Sea. It is found that the sea surface oscillations interact with the oscillations in the pycnocline. This interaction could contribute to a modification of the vertical stratification in a long run. The vertical stratification, on its side, jointly with the bottom relief causes different appearances of oscillations over the continental slope and in the basin interior. Changes in the stability of stratification, caused by the seasonal cycle, are thus an important factor modifying wave processes and the resulting internal mixing. (C) 1999 Elsevier Science B.V.
