The communication presents the various requirements imposed to electronic nose to become an instrument of environmental monitoring. Obstacles of the monitoring of real life environmental odours may be classified into three categories: • the final goal of the study, requiring to measure a global odour annoyance and not any gaseous emission, • the analysed sample itself, which is highly variable, due to the process evolution and to the influence of ambient parameters; • and the operating conditions, needing to work far from any building and sometimes at locations not easy to reach. The paper suggests some simple solutions to those problems. [less ▲]

In Benin and particular in the southern part, the natural habitat disappear or deteriorate dangerously. Only subsist the substitution biotopes. Thus, in this part of the country, the plantations will the last "forest" cover in the next future. Are the plantations could be a good subsitution habitat for forest birds ? In the southern Benin, the wood cover consist in Elaeis guineensis, Tectona grandis and Cocos nucifera (littoral). Birds was surveyed in 12 sites in the three plantation types. Moreover, in these sites, the vegetation structure were described (vegetation cover in different height). The 99 birds species observed were analysed in terms of vegetation cover (ACP). This analysis revealed a good fit between the bird community and their habitat: some species are restricted in one or two plantation type when others ones are more ecological tolerant. [less ▲]

Hypoxia is a common feature in tumors associated with an increased resistance of tumor cells to therapies. In addition to O2 diffusion–limited hypoxia, another form of tumor hypoxia characterized by fluctuating changes in pO2 within the disorganized tumor vascular network is described. Here, we postulated that this form of intermittent hypoxia promotes endothelial cell survival, thereby extending the concept of hypoxia-driven resistance to the tumor vasculature. We found that endothelial cell exposure to cycles of hypoxia reoxygenation not only rendered them resistant to proapoptotic stresses, including serum deprivation and radiotherapy, but also increased their capacity to migrate and organize in tubes. By contrast, prolonged hypoxia failed to exert protective effects and even seemed deleterious when combined with radiotherapy. The use of hypoxia-inducible factor-1α (HIF-1α)–targeting small interfering RNA led us to document that the accumulation of HIF-1α during intermittent hypoxia accounted for the higher resistance of endothelial cells. We also used an in vivo approach to enforce intermittent hypoxia in tumor-bearing mice and found that it was associated with less radiation-induced apoptosis within both the vascular and the tumor cell compartments (versus normoxia or prolonged hypoxia). Radioresistance was further ascertained by an increased rate of tumor regrowth in irradiated mice preexposed to intermittent hypoxia and confirmed in vitro using distinctly radiosensitive tumor cell lines. In conclusion, we have documented that intermittent hypoxia may condition endothelial cells and tumor cells in such a way that they are more resistant to apoptosis and more prone to participate in tumor progression. Our observations also underscore the potential of drugs targeting HIF-1α to resensitize the tumor vasculature to anticancer treatments. (Cancer Res 2006; 66(24): 11736-44) [less ▲]

Intracranial hypertension is a major cause of morbidity and mortality of patients suffering from fulminant hepatic failure. The etiology of this intracranial hypertension is not fully determined, and is probably multifactorial, combining a cytotoxic brain edema due to the astrocytic accumulation of glutamine, and an increase in cerebral blood volume and cerebral blood flow, in part due to inflammation, to glutamine and to toxic products of the diseased liver. Validated methods to control intracranial hypertension in fulminant hepatic failure patients mainly include mannitol, hypertonic saline, indomethacin, thiopental, and hyperventilation. However all these measures are often not sufficient in absence of liver transplantation, the only curative treatment of intracranial hypertension in fulminant hepatic failure to date. Induced moderate hypothermia seems very promising in this setting, but has to be validated by a controlled, randomized study. Artificial liver support systems have been under investigation for many decades. The bioartificial liver, based on both detoxification and swine liver cells, has shown some efficacy on reduction of intracranial pressure but did not show survival benefit in a controlled, randomized study. The Molecular Adsorbents Recirculating System has shown some efficacy in decreasing intracranial pressure in an animal model of liver failure, but has still to be evaluated in a phase Ill trial.
