For more than 25 years now, traceroute has demonstrated its supremacy for network-path measurement, becoming the most widely used Internet path diagnosis tool today. A major limitation of traceroute when the destination is not controllable by the user is its inability to measure reverse paths, i.e., the path from a destination back to the source. Proposed techniques to address this issue rely on IP address spoofing, which might lead to security concerns. In this paper we introduce and evaluate DisNETPerf, a new tool for locating probes that are the closest to a distant server. Those probes are then used to collect data from the server point-of-view to the service user for path performance monitoring and troubleshooting purposes. We propose two techniques for probe location, and demonstrate that the reverse path can be measured with very high accuracy in certain scenarios. [less ▲]

Chacun a eu dans sa maison, sous forme de dalles, cheminées, bibelots, des pierres et marbres. Ces matériaux se sont formés dans des milieux variés, souvent des mers peu profondes et sont les témoins de près d’un demi-milliard d’années d’histoire de notre région! Cette richesse géologique représente aussi une fabuleuse richesse archéologique et patrimoniale dans l’utilisation exceptionnellement variée qui en a été faite, depuis l’époque romaine jusqu’à nos jours. Donner à chacun l’occasion d’identifier et de comprendre ces pierres et marbres est le but de ce livre. [less ▲]

This paper undertakes an environmental evaluation of phosphoric acid production, using industrial data from Prayon SA in Belgium. Phosphoric acid is produced using the wet di-hemihydrate process also called Central Prayon process. Both grades of phosphoric acid are evaluated: fertilizer and purified grades. Specificities of this plant are highlighted and improvements of the process in terms of energy and facilities integration through years are quantified as environmental benefits. The implementation on site of two sulphuric acid production facilities and their energetic integration allow a reduction of climate change impact of 80%. Results also show the importance of phosphogypsum valorisation which is sold for the main part in this case study. Concerning the purified grade, this specific process has been compared to the thermal process, using Best Available Techniques (BAT) values for the modelling. It shows a reduced environmental impact for the wet process in the majority of categories studies. [less ▲]

Hormonal contraception is used by millions of women worldwide for many years. Is there any impact on cancer risks (breast, ovarian, endometrial, cervical, liver, and colon cancer)? On the other hand, as a result of advances in cancer therapy, women within the reproductive-aged group are more likely to survive cancer and be interested to procreate or to delay pregnancy. Which method of contraception can be proposed to this special population of cancer patients? [less ▲]

Summary : Dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) inhibitors (gliptins) are more and more prominent medications in the management of type 2 diabetes (T2D), with five molecules commercialized and as many fixed-dose combinations with metformin. After failure of metformin monotherapy, gliptins compete with old medications such as sulphonylureas, on the one hand, or with new oral antidiabetic agents such as inhibitors of renal sodium-glucose cotransporters type 2 (SGLT2) (gliflozines), on the other hand. Another alternative is the use of an incretin mimetic (agonist of glucagon-like peptide-1 receptors, to be injected subcutaneously) rather than an incretin enhancer such as a gliptin, before considering insulin therapy. This article analyses the arguments in favour of DPP-4 inhibitors. We will mainly consider the use of gliptins in patients with recently diagnosed T2D, in elderly and frail patients and in those with chronic kidney disease. To illustrate the discussion, we will analyze the results of both interventional and observational studies with vildagliptin. Obviously, these various groups of patients represent a large proportion of T2D population. [less ▲]

Previous literature suggests that free access to a running wheel can attenuate the behavioral responsiveness to addictive drugs in rodents. In a few studies, wheel-running cessation accentuated drug responsiveness. Here, we tested whether free wheel-running cessation is followed by (1) an accentuation or (2) an attenuation of cocaine psychomotor sensitization, knowing that no cessation of (continuous) wheel-running is associated with an attenuation of cocaine responsiveness. Male C57BL/6J mice, aged 35 days, were housed singly either with (exercising mice) or without (non-exercising mice) a running wheel. At the end of a period of 36 days, half of the exercising mice were deprived of their wheel whereas the other half of exercising mice kept their wheel until the end of experimentation (which lasted 85 days). The non-exercising mice were housed without wheel throughout experimentation. Testing took place 3 days after exercise cessation. After 2 once-daily drug-free test sessions, mice were tested for initiation of psychomotor sensitization over 13 once-daily injections of 8 mg/kg cocaine. Post-sensitization conditioned activation (saline challenge) and long-term expression of sensitization were assessed 2 or 30 days after the last sensitizing injection (same treatments as for initiation of sensitization), respectively. Exercising mice and mice undergoing wheel-running cessation exhibited comparable degrees of attenuation of all cocaine effects in comparison with the continuously non-exercising mice, which showed the greatest effects. Thus, the efficaciousness of wheel-running at attenuating cocaine sensitization not only resisted to exercise cessation but also was unambiguously persistent (an important effect rarely reported in previous literature).

Summary Because of the deleterious role attributed to insulin resistance, insulin sensitizing agents should theoretically reduce the incidence of cardiovascular complications in type 2 diabetes. In the UKPDS, metformin reduced the risk of myocardial infarction and cardiovascular mortality in a rather small group of recently diagnosed patients at a low cardiovascular risk. These results deserve confirmation in a larger study with patients a high cardiovascular risk. Glitazones, as more specific insulin sensitizers, raised much hope. However, rosiglitazone fell from its pedestal after the suspicion of an increased risk of myocardial infarction. In PROactive among patients at high cardiovascular risk, pioglitazone gave positive but questionable results: statistical significance was not reached regarding the large composite primary endpoint, but well regarding the prespecified more focused principal secondary endpoint or in various post-hoc analyses. Thus, even if data with insulin sensitizers appear globally rather promising, evidence is rather weak, therefore leading to recurrent controversy. [less ▲]
