According to individuals, onychomycoses or their treatments can be held in check. Some of the "promises" sometimes offered by pharmaceutical companies are not fully kept and hopes of cure may remain wild. Some special therapeutic strategies should be employed in case of recalcitrant or recurrent onychomycosis. [less ▲]

Cancers rarely coexist with pregnancy. Cutaneous melanoma, however, is one of the most frequently encountered neoplasms during pregnancy. Gestation may also be a period during which the aspect of some melanocytic naevi can change eventhough the tumor remains benign. Distinction between a benign and a malignant lesion may then be a dilemma. Clinical morphometry, dermoscopy, skin surface biopsy, conventional histology and immunohistochemistry are valuable means that can be used to secure maximum diagnostic confidence. [less ▲]

Results concerning surface charge characterizations of coagulated dye with an aim to evaluate the predominant destabilization mechanism taking place during colour removal by chemical coagulation are presented. A model wastewater comprising of commercially used dye with a CI “Reactive Red 2” was studied. The effect of the combination coagulant/flocculant on colour removal by filtration and sedimentation was evaluated in terms of progression of sludge surface charge. On that basis, an implications about the predominant colour removal mechanisms have been drawn. On selected sludge samples, floc characterisations in terms of size by laser scattering and shape were performed. The measurement techniques used have encompassed for particle size and Small Angle Light Scattering (SALS) for fractal dimension. [less ▲]

The immune system plays a prominent role in the defense against a wide variety of pathogen fungi. Thus, the immunocompromised patient becomes a potential victim of mycoses originating from the skin. These mycoses may become invasive and a fatal issue is possible. In other circumstances, the inoculation site is pulmonary or digestive, and the cutaneous lesions represent secondary localizations.

Invasive fungal infections are a rare but important cause of morbidity and mortality among patients with severely compromised host defenses. Despite considerable advances in antifungal therapies over the past years, invasive mycoses remain a stubborn and dramatic problem. Voriconazole is a new triazole antifungal agent which confers a relative survival benefit in fluconazole-resistant invasive candidiasis, and in invasive aspergillosis, fusariosis and Scedosporium infections as well.

We propose TCP-L, an improved version of TCP, equipped with a learning algorithm whose purpose is to avoid probing for additional bandwidth when the network conditions are known to be unfavourable. TCP-L learns the relationship between its current (average) one-trip delay and its current window size when congestion occurs, leading to packet loss. After the learning phase, TCP-L will only probe for bandwidth by increasing its window if, under the current network conditions (measured by the one-trip delay), this inflated window has not previously created congestion. Simulations show that after the learning phase, TCP-L reaches a much more stable throughput, while remaining TCP-friendly, which makes it usable for a larger class of applications, including some multimedia applications that will benefit from that stability. TCP-L is a simple backward compatible extension of TCP which can thus be deployed progressively. We show that there is a benefit for the Internet to deploy TCP-L, because the overall traffic becomes smoother when the proportion of TCP-L flows increases. Finally, our learning component can also be easily embedded in other unicast or multicast transport protocols. [less ▲]

Osteoporosis in very elderly subjects is now considered, in most developed and several developing countries as a major social, clinical and financial burden. While many compounds have been investigated in the prevention or treatment of spinal fractures, few of them have unequivocally demonstrated their ability to reduce the risk of non vertebral and more specifically hip fractures in the very elderly. This situation may seem highly paradoxical since hip fractures are unanimously considered to be the most dramatic and disabling consequence of osteoporosis. The present article reviews the current evidence available to justify anti-osteoporotic medications to be recommended to very elderly subjects, in the perspective of reducing their risk of appendicular fractures.

Obesity is a chronic multifactorial disease representing a major health problem. Among its consequences, diverse facets of the cutaneous physiology are altered. Some dermatoses are also more prevalent. The most typical ones are acanthosis nigricans, skin tags, signs of hyperandrogeny, striae distensae, stasis acroangiodermatitis, leg ulcers, lymphoedema and intertrigo. [less ▲]

In sanskrit, aruna- means "red, pink". In Avestan, occidental scholars translate auruna by "wild". Nothing explains this paradox between two words whose etymological equivalence is obvious. A precise reading of the Rig-Vedic stanzas shows that the feminine form of this adjective always qualifies the Dawn. This systematic use modified the meaning of the adjective. Beyond its chromatic value, it indicates in the Rigvedic poetries the intermediate time linking day and night. [less ▲]
