The incomplete gamma function was used to fit lactation curves of Holstein-Friesian cows in four types of herds in Tunisia. A total of 8640 records were used in the analysis. These included 1269, 637, 239, and 498 first lactation and 2986, 1441, 650, and 920 second and later lactation records in four herd groups namely investors, state, cooperative, and farmers' herds, respectively. The effects of environmental variables, production sector, herd, parity, first test-day date, calving year, and calving season on the main lactation curve traits were analysed. The factors associated with milk yield at the beginning of lactation and the decreasing phase of the curve, persistency, and peak yield varied significantly (P<0.01) with all variables. The ascending phase of the lactation curve was not affected by parity and calving year, while days in milk until peak depended only on the rank of lactation. The state herds had the lowest peak and total yields. The summer season was unfavourable for milk production. In contrast to first lactation cows, third lactation cows had the highest peak and total yields. Milk yield was highly correlated with peak yield (r = 0.79) and was not related to persistency measure. (C) 2003 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. [less ▲]

L’inventaire du matériel sur pied constitue un outil indispensable pour une gestion raisonnée des peuplements forestiers présentant une structure irrégulière et se régénérant par voie naturelle. Pareil inventaire constitue en effet le seul moyen d’apprécier la structure et la composition du peuplement ainsi que sa dynamique de rajeunissement. Une telle opération, lorsqu’elle est mise en oeuvre à l’échelle d’une unité d’aménagement, voire d’une propriété, peut fournir au gestionnaire un tableau de bord synthétisant les principaux indicateurs d’état des peuplements et permettant d’orienter les choix stratégiques en matière d’aménagement. L’intérêt d’un tel outil est renforcé lorsque les peuplements concernés ont connus des perturbations importantes, se traduisant par des prélèvements extraordinaires et l’apparition d’un déséquilibre profond au plan de la structure et de la composition. L’objet du présent document est de décrire une méthode d’inventaire par échantillonnage permettant de collecter rapidement et avec une précision connue un ensemble d’informations utile à la gestion et l’aménagement de peuplements feuillus dont la surface peut varier de quelques centaines à plusieurs milliers d’hectares.

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate efficacy, dose response, safety, and tolerability of adalimumab (D2E7) in disease modifying antirheumatic drug (DMARD) refractory patients with longstanding, active rheumatoid arthritis (RA). METHODS: During a 12 week, double blind, placebo controlled study, 284 patients were randomly allocated to receive weekly subcutaneous injections of adalimumab 20 mg (n = 72), 40 mg (n = 70), or 80 mg (n = 72) or placebo (n = 70) without concomitant DMARDs. RESULTS: Adalimumab significantly improved the signs and symptoms of RA for all efficacy measures. ACR20 responses with adalimumab were significant at each assessment versus placebo (p</=0.01). Additionally, ACR responses with adalimumab were achieved more rapidly than with placebo, with 82/115 (71%) of the ultimate ACR20 response rate to adalimumab treatment achieved at week 2. At week 12, for adalimumab 20, 40, and 80 mg, ACR20 response rates were 50.7%, 57.1%, and 54.2%, respectively, versus 10.0% for placebo (p</=0.001 for all comparisons); ACR50 rates were 23.9%, 27.1%, and 19.4%, respectively, versus 1.4% for placebo (p</=0.001 for all comparisons); and ACR70 rates were 11.3%, 10.0%, and 8.3%, respectively, versus 0.0% for placebo (p</=0.05 for all comparisons). All adalimumab doses significantly improved all ACR core criteria at all assessments. The 40 mg and 80 mg doses provided similar benefit. Adalimumab at all doses was generally well tolerated, with only mild or moderate adverse events. Completion rates were 87% for adalimumab and 67% for placebo. CONCLUSIONS: Adalimumab given as monotreatment to patients with longstanding, severe RA refractory to traditional DMARDs produced a rapid, sustained response and was safe and well tolerated, with no dose limiting side effects.

We describe the molecular mechanisms of action of nicotine and delta 9-tetrahydrocannabinol, the most potent component of cannabis. Like other drugs of abuse, these compounds enhance dopamine release in a precise area of the limbic system when administered acutely. It has recently been shown that the cannabinoid receptors on which delta 9-tetrahydrocannabinol acts are also activated by endogenous ligands such as anandamide. This unconventional neurotransmitter appears to have important physiological effects in the central nervous system. Both preclinical and clinical evidence suggests that nicotine is more addictive than delta 9-tetrahydrocannabinol. However, the intimate interactions that exist between cannabinoid and opioid systems within the brain suggest that cannabinoids should not be considered as harmless drugs of abuse. [less ▲]

An original image analysis method is presented to characterize multi-walled carbon nanotubes from transmission electron microscopy images. The analysis is performed in three steps: (i) image preprocessing in order to isolate the nanotubes from the background, (ii) image segmentation, aiming at keeping only the measurable sections of nanotubes, and finally (iii) tube characteristics measurement. The measurement is based on a Lambert-like electron absorption law and is performed on the original gray level image itself. Two geometrical and one physical characteristics are determined for each tube, namely, its outer and inner radius and a linear electron absorption coefficient. The method is illustrated by comparing a pristine and an annealed carbon nanotube samples. The compaction of the tube walls during annealing is shown to result from a lowering of the external radius while the inner radius is left unchanged. (C) 2003 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
