Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is blood plasma with a high concentration of autologous platelets which constitute an immense reservoir of growth factors. The clinical use of PRP is widespread in various medical applications. Although highly popular with athletes, the use of PRP for the treatment of tendinopathies remains scientifically controversial, particularly due to the diversity of products that go by the name of “PRP.” To optimize its use, it is important to look at the various stages of obtaining PRP. In this literature review, we take a closer look at eight parameters which may influence the quality of PRP: 1) anticoagulants used to preserve the best platelet function, 2) the speed of centrifugation used to extract the platelets, 3) the platelet concentrations obtained, 4) the impact of the concentration of red and while blood cells on PRP actions, 5) platelet activators encouraging platelet degranulation and, hence, the release of growth factors, and 6) the use or nonuse of local anesthetics when carrying out infiltration. In addition to these parameters, it may be interesting to analyze other variables such as 7) the use of ultrasound guidance during the injection with a view to determining the influence they have on potential recovery.

Aim: The Psychopathy Checklist-Revised (PCL-R) is the most studied and validated instrument to measure psychopathy. We aimed to explore its items content invariance to forensic schizophrenic subjects. Method: We examined the PCL-R protocol of 15 male forensic schizophrenic subjects and attributed a score of sensitivity to psychotic symptomatology to each item score. Results: Results suggest that the applicability of the PCL-R items to a forensic schizophrenic sample is not to be blindly warranted. Some items more systematically positively influenced by psychotic symptoms (e.g. Shallow Affect, Lack of Remorse or Guilt), while others were negatively influenced (e.g. Promiscuous Sexual Behavior, Glib and Superficial Charm), or not influenced at all (e.g. Criminal Versatility). Conclusions: The current study suggest that the applicability of the PCL-R items to a forensic schizophrenic sample is not to be blindly warranted. We discuss both psychometric and conceptual implications for the measurement of psychopathy when a diagnosis of schizophrenia has been established. [less ▲]

This paper offers a reconstruction of Franz Brentano’s mereological solution to the problem of the unity of consciousness and explores some implications of this solution for the ontology of the mind. In section 1 I sketch Brentano’s ontological distinctions between things, collectives, and divisives. In section 2 I present Brentano’s mereological solution and in section 3 I review his main pro-arguments. Eventually, in section 4 I consider some Jamesian objections to the mereological approach. I argue the notion of ‘mental parts’ can be given a rather innocuous meaning by being conceived of as the expression of conceptual distinctions grounded in similarity and contrast relations between total mental phenomena.

Hemicelluloses and Lignin in Biorefineries provides an understanding of lignocellulosic biomass, which is mainly composed of cellulose, hemicelluloses, and lignin. It promotes the valorization of these molecules in the context of the bioeconomy and presents hemicelluloses and lignin, which are generated in lignocellulosic biorefineries, as the molecules of the future. The viability of these molecules lies in their renewability and potential. This book covers all aspects of hemicelluloses and lignin including structure, biosynthesis, extraction, biodegradation, and conversion. The book also looks ahead to the socioeconomic and environmental value of biobased industry and emphasizes an understanding of the potential of lignocellulosic biomass. [less ▲]

The paper describes the factors influencing the interplay of pension and tax policies from a fiscal and welfare perspective, and identifies areas where both topics can materially impact one another. The paper also explores the arguments for coordination between income tax and pension policies in light of the distributional and behavioral synergies. The paper raises questions regarding tax policy’s effectiveness for materially influencing pension coverage, contribution compliance, and labor mobility. The authors argue for taxing pension similarly to all other incomes and for limiting tax treatment of mandatory pensions, and for initiating coordinated tax and pension reforms before electoral demographics render such reforms even more difficult than today.

One of the main consequences of the Roman conquest was the diffusion of the Latin language and of Roman culture throughout the conquered countries. According to many texts of the imperial period, Latin became a universal language during the Imperium Romanum. But what is the reality? Did Rome develop any linguistic policies? There is some evidence to show that Rome’s response regarding the sociolinguistic problems that arose under its rule was to be flexible and willing to adapt to the specific requirements of each situation. Under the Republic and the early Principate, there was, in fact, a great flexibility in language use by the Romans in their dealings with the Greek world. Even though Latin-Greek bilingualism was widespread among the Romans of the Republic and the early Principate, in the public context, Latin maintained a high-level role because it represented the language of Rome’s power. In spite of this flexible approach to language use, a natural competition developed between the language of the dominant and the language of the dominated. In the Occident, Latin became the only vehicle of communication, both oral and written, whereas in the Orient, one notes a paradoxical situation: the Hellenization of the Romans due to the high cultural position of the Greek language. However, this dichotomy did not produce a division of the Roman Empire into two impenetrable parts, closed to mutual linguistic and cultural influences, but rather, it generated a more complicated situation, especially in the Oriental part of the Empire. It is this situation that will be analyzed in the present paper. [less ▲]

This paper reviews the state-of-the-art methods to perform structural optimization of flexible mechanisms. These methods are based on a system-based approach, i.e. the formulation of the design problem incorporates the time response of the mechanism that is obtained from a dynamic simulation of the flexible multibody system. The system-based approach aims at considering as precisely as possible the effects of nonlinear dynamic loading under various operating conditions. Also, the optimization process enhances most existing studies which are limited to (quasi-) static or frequency domain loading conditions. This paper briefly introduces flexible multibody system dynamics and structural optimization techniques. Afterwards, the two main methods, named the weakly and the fully coupled methods, that couple both disciplines are presented in details and the influence of the multibody system formalism is analyzed. The advantages and drawbacks of both methods are discussed and future possible research areas are mentioned. [less ▲]

La présente contribution prend en compte un volumineux corpus de fiches de préparations écrites rédigées par nos étudiants dans le cadre de leurs stages les préparant à devenir instituteurs du primaire. Ces fiches seront envisagées sous l’angle du triangle didactique (Houssaye, 1988-2014). Autrement dit, nous tâcherons d’examiner comment se déclinent dans ces traces sémiotiques spécifiques ces trois dimensions que sont l’élève, le savoir et l’enseignant. Quelle place est réservée à l’élève ? Est-il bien présent dans les préparations ou est-il fantomatique ? Comment est-il nommé, désigné ? Ses réponses attendues sont-elles énoncées ? Les obstacles sur lesquels il pourrait buter sont-ils précisés ? Les activités sont-elles manifestement adaptées à lui ? Savons-nous ce que l’élève est invité à faire, avec qui, comment, pour quoi, pendant combien de temps, au moyen de quels outils ? Quelle place est faite, ou non, à la différenciation des apprentissages ? S’agissant du savoir, comment s’incarne-t-il dans les préparations, que l’on prenne en compte les savoirs supposés maitrisés par le stagiaire et ceux que l’élève est censé s’approprier au fil de la séquence d’apprentissage ? Sont-ils formalisés et, dans l’affirmative, de quelle manière ? Enfin, comment le stagiaire se projette-t-il lui-même dans le dispositif didactique qu’il planifie ? Se désigne-t-il à la première ou à la troisième personne du singulier ? Les propos qu’il projette de tenir sont-ils rédigés en style direct ou indirect ? Que savons-nous de ce qu’il prévoit de faire, de dire ? Autant de questions que nous appliquerons à notre corpus. L’approche sera d’abord descriptive, puis normative. [less ▲]

The unsteady Vortex Lattice method is becoming an increasingly popular aerodynamic modelling method for incompressible aeroelastic problems, such as flexible low-speed aircraft, wind turbines and flapping flight. It leads to discrete time aeroelastic state space equations, which must be solved in a time-marching framework. Eigenvalue or singular value decompositions of the discrete time equations can be used in order to perform stability analysis but such procedures must be accompanied by model order reduction because the size of the equations is large. This work proposes a modal frequency domain implementation of the Vortex Lattice method, resulting in a modal generalised force matrix. Model order reduction is implicit in the modal approach and stability analysis can be carried out using industry-standard flutter analysis techniques, such as the p-k method. The approach is validated by comparison to wind tunnel flutter data obtained from rectangular cantilever flat plate wings of different aspect ratios and sweep angles. It is found that the aeroelastic model predictions follow the experimental trends for both flutter speed and frequency but tend to be moderately conservative. [less ▲]

Dès 1996, Sylvie Plane, bientôt rejointe par Jean-Paul Bernié (1998), en vient à considérer que, dans le champ de la recherche, tout semble se passer comme si l’on était passé d’une focalisation sur le produit fini à une centration sur l’activité de production. Dès lors, le brouillon semble définitivement exhumé des poubelles où il était trop longtemps resté cantonné. De la même manière, la dissertation, genre scolaire par excellence, a donné lieu à de très nombreuses études : Delforce (1985, 1992), Delcambre (1997), Donahue (2008), Schneuwly & Dolz (2009), Scheepers (2013), sans compter le numéro 68 de Pratiques (1990) ou le numéro 123 du Français aujourd’hui (1998). Mais, à notre connaissance tout du moins, seules Francine Darras et Isabelle Delcambre (1989-2011) se sont penchées sur les brouillons de dissertations. Pour ce faire, elles ont pris en compte vingt copies de lycéens de seconde. Par conséquent, la finalité de cette contribution est de croiser les apports des recherches inscrites dans le champ des littéracies académiques aux travaux dévolus aux brouillons et aux dissertations pour analyser les brouillons de dissertations produits par nos étudiants de troisième année du baccalauréat en langues et lettres françaises, romanes, germaniques et classiques. La principale question qui s’inscrit au cœur de notre réflexion sera la suivante : quelles stratégies de brouillonnement mobilisent les étudiants pour produire une dissertation lors d’un examen ?

Background: Severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID) can be caused by loss-of-function mutations in genes involved in the DNA recombination machinery, such as RAG1, RAG2 or DCLRE1C. Defective DNA recombination causes a developmental block in T cells and B cells, resulting in high susceptibility to infections. Hypomorphic mutations in the same genes can also give a partial loss of T cells, in a spectrum including leaky SCID (LS) and Omenn syndrome (OS). These patients not only develop life-threatening infections due to immunodeficiency, but also develop inflammatory/autoimmune conditions due to the presence of autoreactive T cells. Objective: We sought to develop a preclinical model that fully recapitulates the symptoms of LS/OS patients including a model for testing therapeutic intervention. Methods: We generated a novel mutant mouse (Dclre1c leaky) that develops a LS phenotype. Mice were monitored for diseases and immune phenotype and immune function were evaluated using flow cytometry, ELISA and histology. Results: Dclre1c leaky mice present with a complete blockade of B cell differentiation, with a leaky block in T cell differentiation resulting in an oligoclonal TCR repertoire and enhanced cytokine secretion. Dclre1c leaky mice also developed inflammatory symptoms including wasting, dermatitis, colitis, hypereosinophilia and high IgE levels. Development of a preclinical murine model for LS allowed the testing of potential treatment, with administration of CTLA4-Ig reducing disease symptoms and immunological disturbance, resulting in increased survival. Conclusion: These data suggest that CTLA4-Ig should be evaluated as a potential treatment of inflammatory symptoms in LS and OS patients. [less ▲]

Normalization of the electromyography (EMG) signal is often performed relatively to maximal voluntary activations (MVA) obtained during maximum isometric voluntary contraction (MVIC). The first aim was to provide an inter-session reproducible protocol to normalize the signal of eight shoulder muscles. The protocol should also lead to a level of activation >90% of MVA for >90% of the volunteers. The second aim was to evaluate the influence of the method used to extract the MVA from the EMG envelope on the normalized EMG signal. Thirteen volunteers performed 12 MVICs twice (one-week interval). Several time constants (100 ms to 2 s) were compared when extracting the MVA from the EMG envelope. The EMG activity was also acquired during an arm elevation. Our results show that a combination of nine MVIC tests was required to meet our requirements including reproducibility. Both the number of MVIC tests and the size of the time constant influence the normalized EMG signal during the dynamic activity (variations up to 15%). A time constant of 1 s was a good compromise to extract the MVA. These findings are valuable to improve the reproducibility of EMG signal normalization. [less ▲]
