Increasing numbers of patients are receiving reduced-intensity-conditioning regimen allogeneic hematopoietic stem-cell transplantation. We hypothesized that the use of bone-marrow graft might decrease the risk of graft-versus-host-disease compared to peripheral-blood after reduced-intensity-conditioning regimens without compromising graft-versus-leukemia effects. Patients who underwent reduced-intensity-conditioning regimen allogeneic hematopoietic stem-cell transplantation from 2000-2012 for acute leukemia and reported to the acute-leukemia-working-party of the EBMT were included in the study. Eight hundred thirty-seven patients receiving bone-marrow grafts were compared with 9011 peripheral-blood transplant recipients after reduced-intensity conditioning regimen. Median follow-up of surviving patients was 27 months. Cumulative incidence of engraftment (neutrophil≥0.5x109/L at day 60) was lower in bonemarrow recipients, 88 vs. 95% (p<0.0001). Grade II to IV acute graft-versus-hostdisease was lower in bone-marrow recipients, 19% vs. 24% for peripheral-blood (p=0.005). In multivariate analysis, after adjusting for differences between both groups, overall survival (HR 0.90; p=0.05) and leukemia-free-survival (HR 0.88; p=0.01) were higher in patients transplanted with peripheral-blood compared to bone-marrow grafts. Furthermore, peripheral-blood graft was also associated with decreased risk of relapse (HR 0.78; p=0.0001). Non-relapse-mortality was not significantly different between recipients of bone-marrow and peripheral-blood grafts, and chronic graft-versus-host-disease was significantly higher after peripheral blood grafts (HR 1.38; p<0.0001). Despite the limitation of a retrospective registry based study, we found that peripheral-blood grafts after reduced-intensity-conditioning regimens had better overall and leukemia-free survival than bone-marrow grafts. However, there is an increase in chronic graft-versus-host-disease after peripheral-blood grafts. Long-term follow-up is needed to clarify if chronic graft-versus-host-disease related deaths might increase the risk of late morbidity and mortality. [less ▲]

A direct ultrasound-guided needle placement has been described for canine lumbar spinal puncture. This observational, prospective, ex-vivo, feasibility study aims to compare the use by novice operators of two techniques, ultrasound-guided versus standard landmark blind approach, to accomplish needle placement into the lumbar subarachnoid space in dogs’ cadavers. Sixty-seven last year veterinary students, with neither needle placement into the lumbar subarachnoid space nor ultrasound experience, received a short theoretical training about each technique before the trial and then attempted blind landmark-guided and ultrasound-guided techniques on randomized cadavers. After having performed both procedures, the operators filled-in a self-evaluation questionnaire about performance and self-confidence. Eight experienced operators validated the cadaver model as usable for training blind and ultrasound-guided needle placement into the lumbar subarachnoid space based on realistic anatomy and tissue consistency. Total success rates for last year students on the cadaver model were 48% and 77% for the blind and ultrasound-guided technique respectively. Ultrasound-guidance increased significantly total success rate when compared to the blind landmark-guided technique and reduced significantly the number of attempts. With ultrasound-guidance self-confidence was improved, without bringing any significant change in duration of needle placement procedure. This study suggests that canine cadavers are a valid model for training needle placement into the lumbar subarachnoid space. It demonstrates that ultrasound-guidance is easily and beneficially applicable by inexperienced operators for needle placement into the lumbar subarachnoid space and therefore supports the use of ultrasound-guidance for learning purposes.

Documentée par des milliers de papyrus, restes de livres ou de documents, dont les plus anciens remontent à la fin du IIe siècle de notre ère, la christianisation de l’Égypte a profondément modifié le rapport des populations à la paideia hellénique, sans pour autant se substituer à elle. L’examen du matériau, de la forme, de la mise en page, du contenu, ainsi que de la provenance des papyrus scolaires grecs à contenu composite profane et chrétien (fin IIIe – 1e moitié VIIIe s.), permettra d'illustrer cette problématique en relevant les continuités et les ruptures dans les stratégies d'enseignement par rapport à la paideia de tradition hellénique.

Figure emblématique de la Renaissance rouennaise et normande, Georges Ier d’Amboise rassemble, on le sait, une bibliothèque exceptionnelle, notamment constituée de manuscrits ayant appartenu aux rois aragonais de Naples. Le cardinal s’intéresse également à l’architecture, comme peu de ses contemporains, privilégiant les formes et les fonctions nouvelles, spécialement celles en vigueur en Italie. Il participe aussi à la fortune française d’artistes italiens de renom, comme Andrea Mantegna, Léonard de Vinci, Pérugin ou Andrea Solario, dont il commande ou acquiert des œuvres afin de décorer ses demeures, le château de Gaillon en tête. Mais, alors que son rôle dans la diffusion, au nord des Alpes, des idées et des motifs venus d’Italie est indéniable, le portrait de Georges Ier d’Amboise amateur d’art comprend bien d’autres facettes. Prolongeant une recherche entamée à l’occasion de la parution de l’ouvrage Georges Ier d’Amboise 1460-1510. Une figure plurielle de la Renaissance (2013), cette communication entend revenir sur les objets et les œuvres d’art que l’on peut associer au mécénat et/ou aux possessions de l’archevêque de Rouen. Nous nous pencherons sur les productions italiennes qui sont liées à Georges Ier d’Amboise mais aussi sur les étoffes, les pièces d’orfèvrerie et les tableaux de chevalet, qui sont mentionnés en nombre dans les comptes de dépenses de la construction du château de Gaillon et dans les inventaires qui décrivent les biens meubles conservés dans les demeures du cardinal. L’analyse de ces sources – que jusqu’ici les historiens ont surtout utilisées pour restituer la chronologie du château de Gaillon, rétablir la distribution intérieure de la demeure ou décrire la célèbre bibliothèque du légat alors qu’elles se révèlent extrêmement précieuses pour présenter les collections du conseiller de Louis XII – montre que le goût de Georges Ier d’Amboise, bien que novateur, s’inscrit aussi dans la continuité de celui des amateurs français de la fin du Moyen Âge.

How are identities of alternative forms of organization constructed and how does this process differ relative to normative forms socially expected? In this research we consider identity formation in co-operatives, a population of organizations allied globally through values and practices such as democratic participation, voluntary and open membership, and limited return to capital investment. As an extension of current thinking on identity formation in entrepreneurship and organizational theory, we use co-operatives to explore social expectations and institutional arrangements around form at the societal, population, and organizational levels using a population ecology framework. We develop a research agenda based on propositions that address specific features of identity formation in less typical forms of organization, including tensions with normative business expectations, engagement with identity audiences, embeddedness in networks and alliances, structural factors influencing identity, and identity ambiguity.

Aspergillus clavatus (Ascomycota: Trichocomaceae) was previously found to be an opportunistic pathogen of mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae). In the present study, the mechanism leading to its insecticidal activity was investigated regarding histological damages on Culex quinquefasciatus larvae exposed to A. clavatus spores. Multiple concentration assays using spore suspensions (0.5 x 10^8 to 2.5 x 10^8 spores/ml) revealed 17.0% to 74.3% corrected mortalities after 48 h exposure. Heat-deactivated spores induced a lower mortality compared to non-heated spores suggesting that insecticidal effects are actively exerted. Spore-treated and untreated larvae were prepared for light microscopy as well as for scanning and transmission electron microscopy. Spores failed to adhere to the external body surface (except the mouth parts) of these aquatic immature stages but progressively filled the digestive tract where their metabolism seemed to activate. In parallel, the internal tissues of the larvae, i.e. the midgut wall, the skeletal muscles, and the cuticle-secreting epidermis, were progressively destroyed between 8 and 24 h of exposure. These observations suggest that toxins secreted by active germinating spores of A. clavatus in the digestive tract altered the larval tissues, leading to their necrosis and causing larval death. Fungal proliferation and sporulation then occurred during a saprophytic phase. A. clavatus enzymes or toxins responsible for these pathogenic effects need to be identified in further studies before any use of this fungus in mosquito control. [less ▲]

In Fair Trade (FT), as well as in other ‘mixed-form’ fields (Becchetti & Huybrechts 2008; Marwell & McInerney 2005), non-profit organizations and social enterprises have been partnering with large corporations over long time periods despite the presence of conditions that might be expected to destabilize such relationships. These conditions include striking differences in size, economic power, and organizational goals or ‘logics’. Given these asymmetries, the collaborations are typically seen as problematic and temporary because the stronger party (the corporation) will impose its (market) logics upon the weaker one (the social enterprise), leading to either instrumentalizing and corrupting the latter or to the breakdown of the collaboration. Whilst some of the literature on FT and other market-oriented social movements has tended to depict corporate participation as a threat to the original goals of the social movement and to the integrity of partnering social enterprises (e.g. Fridell et al. 2008; Reed 2009), there is evidence of a set of social enterprise-corporate relationships that persist over time and cannot be simply summarized as dominated by the sole corporate, market logic. These examples illustrate the emergence of new working relationships across the conventional divides between distinct sectors – the public, private, and civil society – that offer new approaches to managing power asymmetries and apparently conflicting logics – typically, in FT and more generally in social entrepreneurship, market and social justice/welfare logics (Battilana & Lee 2014; Defourny & Nyssens 2006; Huybrechts & Nicholls 2012; Smith et al. forthcoming). This leads to the following research question: Under what conditions can inter-organizational relationships emerge and be sustained despite power asymmetries and the presence of distinct, potentially conflicting, institutional logics? The analysis in this paper aims to extend theory by providing an alternative to more deterministic analyses of inter-organizational relationships that suggest that the more powerful actor will always impose its logics upon the less powerful organization thus undermining the persistence of the relationship over time. In the process, this research adds a new construct to existing theory around the resolution of conflict in institutional logics by suggesting that dynamic persistence is also evident in contrast to examples of conflict resolution through dominance, compromise, hybridization, synthesis, or relationship breakdown. Based on the analysis of the relationships between commercial buyers and FTOs, initially embodying market and social justice logics respectively, this paper proposes a set of key conditions under which dynamic persistence can be observed even in the presence of power asymmetries.

Fine operating rules for security control and an automatic system for their online discovery were developed to adapt to the development of smart grids. The automatic system uses the real-time system state to determine critical flowgates, and then a continuation power flow-based security analysis is used to compute the initial transfer capability of critical flowgates. Next, the system applies the Monte Carlo simulations to expected short-term operating condition changes, feature selection, and a linear least squares fitting of the fine operating rules. The proposed system was validated both on an academic test system and on a provincial power system in China. The results indicated that the derived rules provide accuracy and good interpretability and are suitable for real-time power system security control. The use of high-performance computing systems enables these fine operating rules to be refreshed online every 15 min. [less ▲]

Voice problems can be triggered by both vocal misuse and overuse. While misuse is caused by inappropriate vocal actions, overuse results from greater vocal loading than the individual is able to recover from. Vocal load depends primarily on the quantity of phonation in terms of duration, fundamental frequency and sound pressure of the voice. Portable load quantification systems have been available for several years. These dosimeters allow the objective description of vocal behavior in real situations for a prolonged duration. They are primarily used by voice professionals – people who need their voices for their work – such as teachers and singers. Voice dosimetry makes it possible to identify risky vocal behaviors and situations promoting dysphonia, in an ecological context. The objective of research using these tools is to suggest guidelines for the prevention, evaluation and treatment of dysphonia, mainly in people who use their voices a lot. In addition, this research attempts to set standards for daily voice use for different groups of individuals. [less ▲]
