L’hypothèse qui nous guidera tout au long de ce chapitre pourrait se résumer en une formule que Scheler répétera à maintes reprises : développer une pensée de la subjectivité équivaut à philosopher derrière les barreaux d’une prison. Y rester enfermé, c’est s’interdire de répondre à un problème majeur : une sociologie, à savoir l’étude des sens du monde qui me projettent d’emblée vers la communauté qui les lui donne et à laquelle j’appartiens, est-elle seulement possible depuis la phénoménologie ?

The supramolecular assembly of a series of copolymers combining a PEO-rich hydrophilic and fluorinated CO2-philic sequences is analysed by synchrotron small-angle xray scattering (SAXS) in supercritical CO2, as well as in water/CO2 emulsions. These copolymers were designed to have the same molecular weight and composition, and to differ only by their macromolecular architecture. The investigated copolymers have random, block, and palm-tree architectures. Besides, thermo-responsive copolymer is also analysed, having a hydrophilic sequence becoming water-insoluble around 41 °C, i.e. just above the critical point of CO2. At the length scale investigated by SAXS, only the random copolymer appears to self-assemble in pure CO2, in the form of a disordered microgel-like network. The random, block and thermo-responsive copolymers are all able to stabilize water/CO2 emulsions but not the copolymer with the palm-tree architecture, pointing at the importance of macromolecular architecture for the emulsifying properties. A modelling of the SAXS data shows that the block and the thermo-responsive copolymers form spherical micelle-like structures containing about 70 % water and 30 % polymer. [less ▲]

Pouvoirs, médias et médiations se déclineraient désormais au pluriel au sein d’une société libérale avancée mettant en scène un type d’individualité inquiète, souvent défaite, en situation de menace, de veille permanente, fragile mais néanmoins résiliente, capable de se ressaisir, de se mobiliser face aux aléas de la vie. Il appartiendrait alors à l’Etat et aux politiques publiques de tenter de mettre sur pied des dispositifs de médiation pour promouvoir des individus aptes à s’impliquer, à « faire société ».

Résumé Objectifs Analyser la démarche suivie par les médecins de clubs professionnels de football lorsqu’ils décident, en pratique quotidienne, d’autoriser le retour compétitif après plastie du ligament croisé antérieur chez un footballeur. Matériels et méthodes Trente-sept médecins responsables de clubs professionnels de football français et belges (Ligue 1, n = 15 ; Ligue 2, n = 14 ; Division 1 belge, n = 8) ont rempli un questionnaire à choix multiple concernant : (1) les critères utilisés afin de déterminer si un joueur est apte à reprendre la compétition après plastie du ligament croisé antérieur ; (2) l’importance relative de chacun de ces critères ; (3) le rôle éventuel d’intervenants spécifiques (kinésithérapeute…) dans cette décision. Résultats Plus de 80 % des médecins interrogés ont déclaré utiliser au moins huit critères (sur 17 proposés) afin d’évaluer la capacité d’un footballeur à reprendre la compétition après plastie du ligament croisé antérieur. Les trois critères considérés comme les plus déterminants étaient, par ordre d’importance : la stabilité dynamique du genou lors d’un exercice spécifique au football, la force musculaire et la récupération complète ou quasi complète d’amplitudes articulaires de flexion et d’extension de genou. Pour certains de ces critères (notamment la force musculaire), nous constatons cependant un manque de consensus sur les modalités pratiques d’évaluation, sur les paramètres ainsi que sur les valeurs-limites tolérées afin de garantir un retour sur terrain sécurisé. La prise en compte de l’avis du kinésithérapeute et du préparateur physique par une très nette majorité de médecins souligne l’importance d’un travail pluridisciplinaire. Conclusion L’utilisation de différents critères objectifs afin d’autoriser le retour compétitif après plastie du ligament croisé antérieur semble être une réalité dans le football professionnel. Des études supplémentaires devraient cependant contribuer à préciser les modalités des épreuves ainsi que des valeurs-seuils. ________________________________________ Summary Purpose To analyze how sport physicians decide, in their daily practice, when a professional soccer player with a reconstructed anterior cruciate ligament is able to get back to competitive activities. Materials and methods Thirty-seven physicians for professional French and Belgian soccer teams filled in a specific questionnaire dedicated to: (1) return-to-play criteria after anterior cruciate reconstruction; (2) the importance they assigned to each of these criteria in the return-to-play decision; (3) the potential role of professionals, such as physiotherapists or physical coaches in this decision. Results More than 80% of the respondents declared to use at least eight criteria in order to assess the player's ability to return to competitive soccer after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. The most important ones were (in order of importance): dynamic knee stability during a specific soccer exercise, muscle strength performance and normalization of knee flexion and extension ranges of motion. For most of these criteria (notably muscle strength), there was a lack of consensus about the choice of assessment parameters and the limit values allowing physicians to authorize or forbid the return-to-competition. A large majority of participants stated to take into consideration advices from physiotherapists or physical coaches for the return-to-play decision. Conclusion Sport physicians of professional soccer teams use relevant criteria to assess players’ ability to return to full sport after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. Further studies are required to determine the choice of assessment parameters and the limit values to assist physicians in return-to-play decisions. [less ▲]

tThe aim of this work was to evaluate physicochemical properties of chitosan-based films with differentfractions of arabinoxylans (AXs). Five fractions composed by AXs or mixtures of AXs and arabino-xylo-oligosaccharides (AXOS) obtained through three different processes were added to chitosan-based films.These films were obtained by solvent casting and characterized in terms of water vapor permeability(WVP), opacity, thickness, moisture content and mechanical properties (i.e., tensile strength – TS andelongation at break – EB), being the chemical interactions evaluated by FTIR.Moisture content values ranged between 20 and 30% for all five studied films being the lowest valueobserved for chitosan films with the fraction F1 of AX/AXOS (21.1%). The films with incorporation of F3a,F3b and F4 AXs fraction were more opaque (>10%) than the other studied films. Regarding mechanicalproperties CH films presented EB and TS values of 31.26% and 8.25 MPa, respectively, both these valuesremain statistically equal with the incorporation of AX/AXOS except for films containing the fractionF1 and F2. For films with the F2 fraction were obtained higher values of EB (41.31%) while for CH filmscontaining the F1 fraction the TS values (13.07 MPa) increased.In conclusion, wheat bran AXs can be successfully incorporated into chitosan-based edible films pro-viding, together with chitosan, an extra functional value to films, due their health benefits.

There is a long history of brain stimulation in medical science, and it was tested for years to try to treat several neurological diseases. Research has long been focused on some cortical areas and deep brain structures like the prefrontal cortex and the thalamus. On the other hand, the treatment choices for patients with severe brain injury resulting in disorders of consciousness are still limited and research in this field remains challenging. In the current literature, only a few techniques of brain stimulation were studied scientifically in this population of patients. We will here describe noninvasive techniques, namely transcranial magnetic stimulation and transcranial direct current stimulation, which permit to stimulate the brain through the scalp. Next, we will discuss the current status of deep brain stimulation as treatment for patients with disorders of consciousness. Finally we will develop hypothesis to explain the mechanism of action of these means of brain stimulation. We will see that repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation and transcranial direct current stimulation studies showed encouraging results, with improvements in the behavioral signs of consciousness of severely brain injured patients, both chronic and acute, traumatic or non-traumatic, without influence of the stimulation side. Deep brain stimulation showed more impressive and extensive behavioral improvement after the implantation of an electrical stimulator in the intralaminar nuclei. However, this procedure is riskier and the number of patients who can benefit from this intervention are still limited. These therapeutic approaches are still in their infancy. In the years to follow, interventions should multiply and therapeutic measures should be more accessible, controlled and effective. [less ▲]

Osteoporosis affects millions of elderly patients, and anti-resorptive drugs (ARD) such as bisphosphonates (BP) represent the first-line therapy. Despite the benefits related to the use of these medications, osteonecrosis of the jaw is a significant complication in a subset of patients receiving these drugs. CASE PRESENTATION: This report documents a case of dramatic bisphosphonate-related osteonecrosis associated with periodontitis and dental implant removal in an osteoporotic patient treated with per os bisphosphonates for an uninterrupted period of 15 years. CONCLUSION: The aim of this report was to discuss the administration period of BP in the treatment of osteoporosis, the decision-making and clinical management of severe MRONJ and the indications for dental implant placement in these specific patients.

We prove that a sequence satisfying a certain symmetry property is 2-regular in the sense of Allouche and Shallit, i.e., the Z-module generated by its 2-kernel is finitely generated. We apply this theorem to develop a general approach for studying the l-abelian complexity of 2-automatic sequences. In particular, we prove that the period-doubling word and the Thue--Morse word have 2-abelian complexity sequences that are 2-regular. Along the way, we also prove that the 2-block codings of these two words have 1-abelian complexity sequences that are 2-regular. [less ▲]

The present study investigates the relationships between copper (Cu) and zinc (Zn) concentrations in sediment, pore water and their bioaccumulation in the polychaete Nereis virens, as well as the importance of site-specific sediment characteristics in that process. Sediment, pore water and N. virens were sampled from seven sites with different pollution histories along the English Channel coast. Results showed that site-specific metal levels and sediment characteristics were important in determining the bioavailability of metals to worms. Significant correlations were found between Cu in the sediment and in the pore water and between Zn in the pore water and in N. virens. Zn from the pore water was thus more readily available from a dissolved source to N. virens than Cu. Data also showed that metal concentrations in N. virens were lower than those found in other closely related polychaetes, indicating that it may regulate tissue concentrations of Cu and Zn. [less ▲]
