A total of three different primer pairs were optimized for polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to amplify microsatellite loci in total genomic DNA of grapevine (Vitis vinifera L.). Different concentrations of MgCl2, DNA and different regimes of annealing temperature were optimized. For all the primer pairs, 2.5 mM MgCl2 concentration was found optimum. For DNA concentration, 100 ng in the final reaction volume was suitable for good amplification. Annealing temperatures 56°C, 61°C and 58°C were found optimum to amplify with primer pairs VVMD5, scu04vv and VMC8E6, respectively. The other reagents used in PCR and temperature regimes (denaturation and extension temperature) were kept constant. The protocol has been successfully applied producing scorable and clear amplicons in all cultivars studied. These loci can be used to evaluate the genetic variability and cultivar relatedness in autochthonous Vitis vinifera cultivars from Tunisia. [less ▲]

La Classification Internationale du fonctionnement, du handicap et de la santé (CIF) est présentée ici en détail y compris dans ses techniques de codage. La lecture doit permettre à un lecteur non initié de comprendre la genèse et la construction formelle de la CIF ainsi que son utilisation dans de très nombreuses situations et études cliniques. Comme tous les outils de l’OMS, la CIF est soumise à révision périodique et on examine ici, à partir d’une revue relativement extensive de la littérature internationale les principaux problèmes que soulève son utilisation dans l’espoir d’aider à ce processus, bien nécessaire pour un outil de grande ambition mais dont l’analyse détaillée montre des failles conceptuelles importantes.

Disorders of consciousness (DOC) raise profound scientific, clinical, ethical, and philosophical issues. Growing knowledge on fundamental principles of brain organization in healthy individuals offers new opportunities for a better understanding of residual brain function in DOCs. We here discuss new perspectives derived from a recently proposed scheme of brain organization underlying consciousness in healthy individuals. In this scheme, thalamo-cortical networks can be divided into two, often antagonistic, global systems: (i) a system of externally oriented, sensory-motor networks (the "extrinsic" system); and (ii) a system of inward-oriented networks (the "intrinsic" or default system). According to this framework, four distinct mental states would be possible that could be relevant for understanding DOCs. In normal healthy volunteers and locked-in syndrome patients, a state of high functionality of both the extrinsic and intrinsic or default systems is expected--associated with full awareness of environment and self. In this case, mental imagery tasks combined with fMRI can be used to detect covert awareness in patients that are unable to communicate. <br /> <br />According to the framework, two complementary states of system imbalance are also possible, in which one system is in a hyperfunctional state, while the other is hypoactive. Extrinsic system hyperfunction is expected to lead to a state of total sensory-motor "absorption" or "lost self." In contrast, intrinsic or default system hyperfunction is expected to lead to a state of complete detachment from the external world. A state where both extrinsic and intrinsic systems are hypofunctional is predicted to lead to markedly impaired consciousness as seen in DOCs. Finally, we review the potential use of ultra-slow fluctuations in BOLD signal as a tool for assessing the functional integrity of extrinsic and intrinsic systems during "resting state" fMRI acquisitions. In particular, we discuss the potential provided by assessment of these slow spontaneous BOLD fluctuations as a novel tool in assessing the cognitive state and chances of recovery from brain pathologies underlying DOCs.

The vegetative state (VS) is defined as a condition of wakefulness without awareness. Being awake and being asleep are two behavioral and physiological manifestations of the daily cycles of vigilance and metabolism. International guidelines for the diagnosis of VS propose that a patient fulfills criteria for wakefulness if he/she exhibits cycles of eye closure and eye opening giving the impression of a preserved sleep–wake cycle. We argue that these criteria are insufficient and we suggest guidelines to address wakefulness in a more comprehensive manner in this complex and heterogeneous group of patients. Four factors underlying wakefulness, as well as their interactions, are considered: arousal/ responsiveness, circadian rhythms, sleep cycle, and homeostasis. The first refers to the arousability and capacity to, consciously or not, respond to external stimuli. The second deals with the circadian clock as a synchronizer of physiological functions to environmental cyclic changes. The third evaluates general sleep patterns, while homeostasis refers to the capacity of the body to regulate its internal state and maintain a stable condition. We present examples of reflex responses, activity rhythms, and electroencephalographic (EEG) measurements from patients with disorders of consciousness (DOC) to illustrate these factors of wakefulness. If properly assessed, they would help in the evaluation of consciousness by informing when and in which context the patient is likely to exhibit maximal responsiveness. This evaluation has the potential to improve diagnosis and treatment and may also add prognostic value to the multimodal assessment in DOC. [less ▲]

The Lemaitre and Chaboche fatigue model is investigated in order to predict the fatigue life of tensile samples with and without notches, defining different stress concentration fields. Elastoplastic FE simulations based on anisotropic yield locus description were carried out in order to obtain the stress and strain distributions near the notch root. The Lemaitre and Chaboche fatigue model was applied using the point method (local approach) and the gradient method (non-local approach). [less ▲]

A direct visualization of the flux distribution in a Pb film covering a fivefold Penrose array of Co dots is obtained by mapping the local field distribution with a scanning Hall probe microscope. We demonstrate that stable vortex configurations can be found for fields H similar to 0.8H(1), H(1), and 1.6H(1), where H(1) corresponds to one flux quantum per pinning site. The vortex pattern at 0.8H(1) corresponds to one vacancy in one of the vertices of the thin tiles, whereas at 1.6H(1) the vortex structure can be associated with one interstitial vortex inside each thick tile. Strikingly, for H=1.6H(1), interstitial and pinned vortices arrange themselves in ringlike structures ("vortex corrals") which favor the formation of a giant vortex state at their center. [less ▲]

Brain injuries namely traumatic brain injuries (TBI) and subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH) are relevant causes of acquired adult hypopituitarism, perhaps more prevalent than ever believed. TBI represent a major health problem with an annual incidence of 300 cases per 100.000. SAH affects six new cases per 1.000.000 habitants in USA. In Belgium we estimate nearly 30.000 new TBI cases and 600 SAH cases per year. In the English literature, TBI secondary hypopituitarism has been well documented in 14 retrospective and prospective series accounting for 1.077 cases. In all these series the main pituitary deficits were: GH (14%), ACTH (14%), gonadotrope (18%), TSH (7%) and diabetes insipidus (4%). SAH was documented as a cause of hypopituitarism in three retrospective series accounting for 110 cases and in one prospective series. In all these series main pituitary deficits were GH (25%), ACTH (15%), gonadotrope (8.5%), TSH (6%) and diabetes insipidus (4%). In this review, we analyze recent data and discuss diagnostic and treatment features of secondary hypopituitarism due TBI and SAH. [less ▲]
