Diabetes mellitus markedly increases the risk of cardiovascular diseases, with an especially elevated relative risk among women. Aspirin prescription is mandatory in secondary prevention, even if the protection by aspirin appears less efficacious in diabetic than in non-diabetic patients. In primary prevention, available data are paradoxically rather scarce, but also suggest a less effective prevention when diabetes is present. Aspirin remains the first antiplatelet agent in the diabetic population in all international guidelines of cardiovascular prevention although a higher daily dose may be proposed in this subgroup of patients (160-300 mg rather than 75-100 mg).

Diabetes mellitus increases by 2.5 to 5 the relative risk of congestive heart failure. Besides the classical risk factors of congestive heart failure such as obesity, arterial hypertension and coronary artery disease that are frequently associated to type 2 diabetes, a diabetic cardiomyopathy plays also a role. This specific complication is related to metabolic factors and oxidative stress, leading to muscular cell apoptosis and fibrosis. The management of a diabetic patient with congestive heart failure has several specificities not only concerning the treatment of cardiac insufficiency but most importantly concerning antidiabetic therapy. The relationship between glitazones, peripheral oedema and risk of congestive heart failure is currently raising much interest and controversies. [less ▲]

Janet Frame's 1979 novel Living in the Maniototo features a ubiquitous narrator whose multiple personalities are linked by a common interest in creation. This choice of narrative perspective, coupled with the characters and events depicted in the book, provides the basis for an exploration of the related concepts of art, language and replicas. By establishing connections between these elements, this article attempts to unveil the dynamics at work in the novel's multi-layered structure and thus shed light on the role of the artist in the narrative and, by extension, on the author's metafictional strategy.

The faunaʼs overexploitation in the Congo basin in general and within logging concessions in particular case still appears as a crucial problematic. Commercial poaching threats not only mammal biodiversity but also long-term food safety of local populations. Strangely, this situation is generating a new and collective answer from stakeholders having opposite interests. Administrative authorities, international NGOs of conservation, logging companies have found in the context of wood certifi cation a common deal to begin an anti-poaching action on large landscapes. This study analyses interests of each stakeholder and discusses the place given to populations in this social blending around wildlife. [less ▲]

This paper presents a model for positional relations among bodies of arbitrary shape in three dimensions. It is based on an existing model for projective relations among regions in two dimensions. The motivation is to provide a formal qualitative spatial relations model for emerging 3D applications. Two sets of relations are defined: ternary projective relations based on the concept of collinearity between a primary object and two reference objects and quaternary projective relations based on the concept of coplanarity between a primary object and three reference objects. Four sets of JEPD relations are defined for points and bodies in R-3. [less ▲]

We propose a new technique to introduce carrier fringes in an holographic interferometric set-up for deformation or vibration analyses. This technique makes use of the anisotropic diffraction processes of photorefractive crystals. The main advantage of the proposed technique is that it just involves static components, no moving parts or active components are required. This technique is demonstrated in a real-time interferometric set-up operating at the wavelength of 1.06 μm and with a GaAs photorefractive crystal as the holographic medium. [less ▲]

beta-Lactamases are the main cause of bacterial resistance to penicillins and cephalosporins. Class A beta-lactamases, the largest group of beta-lactamases, have been found in many bacterial strains, including mycobacteria, for which no beta-lactamase structure has been previously reported. The crystal structure of the class A beta-lactamase from Mycobacterium fortuitum (MFO) has been solved at 2.13-A resolution. The enzyme is a chromosomally encoded broad-spectrum beta-lactamase with low specific activity on cefotaxime. Specific features of the active site of the class A beta-lactamase from M. fortuitum are consistent with its specificity profile. Arg278 and Ser237 favor cephalosporinase activity and could explain its broad substrate activity. The MFO active site presents similarities with the CTX-M type extended-spectrum beta-lactamases but lacks a specific feature of these enzymes, the VNYN motif (residues 103 to 106), which confers on CTX-M-type extended-spectrum beta-lactamases a more efficient cefotaximase activity.
