INTRODUCTION: The design of continuous training programs in therapeutic patient education (ETP) should be inspired by needs shown by the professionals concerned in terms of mobilization or acquisition of skills in this domain. The objective of this study is to analyze needs expressed by healthcare professionals (HP) involved in patients' management presenting a type 2 diabetes (T2D) and/or obesity and to compare them with the existing recommendations. METHODS: One hundred and five PS (general practitioners, dietitians and nurses) of 3 frontier regions of French-speaking European countries (France, Belgium and Grand duchy of Luxembourg) were questioned in 12 monodisciplinary groups according to the technique of the nominal group. Needs expressed by the participants were classified in the categories of the reference table of skills to dispense TPE (National Institute for Health Prevention and Education [INPES], 2013). RESULTS/DISCUSSION: Among needs expressed by HP, 52 % of the votes targeted relational skills, 10 % of the skills relative to the biomedical techniques, 20 % of the skills relative to the educational techniques and 11 %, those of organization and the coordination. Seven percent of the proposals were out of the categories of the INPES. Results do not allow to establish profiles of skills according to the studied region or profession. The recognition of the TPE by the French legislation does not seem to influence in a major way the data. CONCLUSION: The needs expressed by PS in the context of this study are focused on the relation HP/patient that is the heart of the TPE. It would however be necessary to raise awareness among HP in the acquisition of the other skills which concern in particular the animation of group, the interprofessional coordination, the consideration of the environment or more generally the procedures.

Gaomiaozi (GMZ) bentonite is currently considered as themost suitable buffermaterial for high-level radioactive waste geological repository in China. To investigate the long-term performance of GMZ bentonite under repository conditions, a large scale mock-up test has been carried out since 2011. In the test, a hydration systemand an electrical heater were employed to simulate the Thermal-Hydro-Mechanical (THM) coupled conditions near a repository. In this work, a numerical study is performed to reproduce the experimental data obtained in the first three years of the China-Mock-up experiment. The principle THM characteristics and parameters of the bentonite are presented. On this basis, a THM coupled constitutive model is introduced. With the proposed model, numerical simulations of the China-Mock-up test are carried out using LAGAMINE. The numerical data of temperature, relative humidity, and swelling pressure of the GMZ compacted bentonite are compared with the experimental ones.We discuss the effect of the balance between the drying effect and water penetration process on the THM behavior of the GMZ bentonite. The good agreement between the predicted and experimental results suggests that the proposed model can reproduce the fundamental behavior of GMZ compacted bentonite under coupled THM conditions.

We present a method for computing robust shape quality measures defined for any order of finite elements. All type of elements are considered, including pyramids. The measures are defined as the minimum of the pointwise quality of curved elements. The computation of the minimum, based on previous work presented by Johnen et al. (2013) [1] and [2], is very efficient. The key feature is to expand polynomial quantities into Bézier bases which allows to compute sharp bounds on the minimum of the pointwise quality measures.

Dans les églises des congrégations féminines, la problématique du « voir » est étroitement associée au « ne pas être vu ». Plus encore que leurs homologues masculins, moniales et religieuses, implantées en milieu urbain tout en étant soumises à la stricte clôture, ont dû trouver des solutions architecturales qui satisfassent à ces deux exigences. Dans ce contexte, les enjeux se focalisent en particulier sur l’articulation de l’église « extérieure » et de l’église « intérieure » – pour reprendre l’expression de Carlo Borromeo – où se déroulent les principaux moments de la vie liturgique de la communauté. En examinant les églises de trois ordres méconnus implantés aux frontières de la catholicité entre le XVe et le XVIIIe siècle (chanoinesses du Saint-Sépulcre, bénédictines réformées de la Paix Notre-Dame et annonciades célestes), il s’agit d’analyser tant la forme (plan, décor, mobilier) que la fonction des nouvelles constructions, mais aussi les aménagements – bien moins connus – des églises monastiques préexistantes et des maisons particulières acquises lors de la fondation.

Neuropilin-1 (NRP1) is a transmembrane protein acting as a co-receptor for several growth factors and interacting with other proteins such as integrins and plexins/semaphorins. It is involved in axonal development, angiogenesis and cancer progression. Its primary mRNA is subjected to alternative splicing mechanisms generating different isoforms, some of which lack the transmembrane domain and display antagonist properties to NRP1 full size (FS). NRP1 is further post-translationally modified by the addition of glycosaminoglycans (GAG) side chains through an O-glycosylation site at serine612. Here, we characterized a novel splice variant which has never been investigated, NRP1-Δ7, differing from the NRP1-FS by a deletion of 7 amino acids occurring two residues downstream of the O-glycosylation site. This short sequence contains two aspartic residues critical for efficient glycosylation. As expected, the high molecular weight products appearing as a smear in SDS-PAGE and reflecting the presence of GAG in NRP1-FS were undetectable in the NRP1-Δ7 protein. NRP1-Δ7 mRNA was found expressed at an appreciable level, between 10 and 30% of the total NRP1, by various cells lines and tissues from human and murine origin. To investigate the biological properties of this isoform, we generated prostatic (PC3) and breast (MDA-MB-231) cancer cells able to express recombinant NRP1-FS or NRP1-Δ7 in a doxycycline-inducible manner. Cells with increased expression of NRP1-Δ7 were characterized in vitro by a significant reduction of proliferation, migration and anchorage-independent growth, while NRP1-FS had the expected opposite “pro-tumoral” effects. Upon VEGF-A165 treatment, a lower internalization rate was observed for NRP1-Δ7 than for NRP1-FS. Finally, we showed that NRP1-Δ7 inhibited growth of prostatic tumors and their vascularization in vivo. This report identifies NRP1-Δ7 as a splice variant displaying anti-tumorigenic properties in vitro and in vivo, emphasizing the need to consider this isoform in future studies. [less ▲]

Objective : Blood pressure (BP) control in chronic hemodialysis (HD) patients is a major challenge and could explain the controversial results about its cardiovascular risk. Our study aimed to assess the contribution of two ambulatory techniques of measurements compared with office BP (OBP): ambulatory monitoring during a maximum of 44h interdialytic period (ABPM) and home blood pressure (HBPM) during a variable period of days in prevalent HD patients. Methodology : 43 prevalent chronically HD patients (M=28; F=15), mean age 68.3±13 years were submitted to a 44h monitoring of BP (Spacelabs 90207) from the end of an HD session to 10 minutes before the next session, immediately followed by a 7days HBPM (Omron M6). Office BP was the mean of pre-dialysis BP or post-dialysis-BP recorded over 2 weeks (6 HD sessions). Hypertension was defined as BP equal or higher than 140/90 mmHg for pre-HD, 130/80 mmHg for post-HD, 130/80 mmHg for 44 h ABPM and 135/85 mmHg for HBPM. Results : Good correlations were noted between ABPM and HBPM for the diagnosis of hypertension in HD patients. Both ambulatory techniques give the same proportion of masked hypertension and white coat hypertension compared with OBP (25%). The best diagnostic precision was noted for the longest periods of recordings (44h for ABPM and 7days for HBPM). Shorter periods were more practical for the patients but less precise for high BP identification. HBPM was more appreciated than ABPM by the patients Conclusion : ABPM and HBPM identified a quarter of patients with a particular phenotype of hypertension not correctly classified by OBP. HBPM should be first recommended in HD (at least 1 week/month). As ABPM provides unique information for nocturnal BP, it could be proposed 1 time/year in all patients. [less ▲]
