    The ability to maintain human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) during long-term culture and yet induce differentiation to multiple lineages potentially provides a novel approach to address various biomedical problems. Here, we describe derivation of hESC lines, NOTT1 and NOTT2, from human blastocysts graded as 3BC and 3CB, respectively. Both lines were successfully maintained as colonies by mechanical passaging on mouse embryonic feeder cells or as monolayers by trypsin-passaging in feeder-free conditions on Matrigel. Undifferentiated cells retained expression of pluripotency markers (OCT4, NANOG, SSEA-4, TRA-1-60 and TRA-1-81), a stable karyotype during long-term culture and could be transfected efficiently with plasmid DNA and short interfering RNA. Differentiation via formation of embryoid bodies resulted in expression of genes associated with early germ layers and terminal lineage specification. The electrophysiology of spontaneously beating NOTT1-derived cardiomyocytes was recorded and these cells were shown to be pharmacologically responsive. Histological examination of teratomas formed by in vivo differentiation of both lines in severe immunocompromised mice showed complex structures including cartilage or smooth muscle (mesoderm), luminal epithelium (endoderm) and neuroectoderm (ectoderm). These observations show that NOTT1 and NOTT2 display the accepted characteristics of hESC pluripotency.

    In response to a critique by Lori Bell Mick (EC 600 580), the original author counters objections to ideas concerning the nature of Ritalin, Ritalin's side effects, drug dependency, and teachers as classroom pushers. The response concludes that evidence for Ritalin's positive effect on reading achievement in children with attention deficit…

    The night accounting system laNotte, presented two years ago at SPIE Amsterdam, has now been working without interruption and a wealth of data are becoming available. We can confirm that the human interaction of the night operator is a key factor, so that a manual editor has been given to operator in order to fix all unavoidable errors and misevaluation during the night. The connections with several logging and telemetry databases complete the necessary inputs. We were thus able to monitor the effect of the introduction of a major new instrument (Harps-N@TNG), to measure with accuracy the meteo variability on the Observatory of Roque de los Muchachos, the frequency of technical problems of the various devices. LaNotte complex is also an straightforward way to account for the operations toward funding bodies, providing them with a standard set of data and the quick possibility to look for historic trends.

  10. The Reflection of Quantum Aesthetics in Algis Mickūnas Cosmic Philosophy

    2011-04-01

    Full Text Available Quantum Aesthetics phenomenon was formed in Spain, at the end of the twentieth centure. The paper analyzes this movement in the context of Algis Mickūnas phenomenological cosmic philosophy. Movement initiator is a Spanish novelist Gregorio Morales. The study is divided into two parts: the first part presents aesthetic principles of the quantum, relationship between new aesthetics and theories of quantum mechanics, physics and other sciences. The paper also examines the similarities of quantum aesthetics and New Age movements. The second part presents cosmic - phenomenological reflection of quantum theory of beauty. Mickūnas philosophical position combines theory of "eternal recurrence", "the bodily nature of consciousness", "the cosmic dance", theory of "dynamic fields" and quantum approach to aesthetics and the Universe. Summa Summarum he writes that "the conception of quantum aesthetics is involved in the composition of the rhythmic, cyclical and mood dimensioned and tensed world".

    Full Text Available Maria Attanasio è provetta poeta e narratrice, attiva sin dagli anni Settanta. Ha pubblicato finora sei libri di versi (uno tradotto in castigliano, due in inglese e sette di prose narrative. Le sue narrazioni sono storiche, nel solco dei componimenti misti di storia e invenzione, spaziano tra il Seicento e i nostri giorni, si spingono con l’ultimo romanzo, Il condominio di Via della Notte, in un futuro distopico che è in parte già il nostro presente. I protagonisti sono tutti “non allineati”, reietti e ribelli; con una sola eccezione (Il falsario di Caltagirone, tutte donne. Tranne Il condominio, ambientato nell’immaginaria Nordìa, lo sfondo comune sono la Sicilia Orientale, il territorio della città natia dell’autrice, Caltagirone. La cifra linguistica è marcata in senso diatopico e diacronico: si evidenziano presenze del siciliano e indizi della lingua del periodo stesso dei fatti narrati.

    2010-06-01

    Mickes, Wixted, and Wais (2007) proposed a simple test of latent strength variability in recognition memory. They asked participants to rate their confidence using either a 20-point or a 99-point strength scale and plotted distributions of the resulting ratings. They found 25% more variability in ratings for studied than for new items, which they interpreted as providing evidence that latent mnemonic strength distributions are 25% more variable for studied than for new items. We show here that this conclusion is critically dependent on assumptions--so much so that these assumptions determine the conclusions. In fact, opposite conclusions, such that study does not affect the variability of latent strength, may be reached by making different but equally plausible assumptions. Because all measurements of mnemonic strength variability are critically dependent on untestable assumptions, all are arbitrary. Hence, there is no principled method for assessing the relative variability of latent mnemonic strength distributions.

    2017-01-01

    ABSTRAK   Narasi merupakan unsur penting dalam film. Urutannya mengandung logika tertentu yang berkaitan dengan makna cerita film. Film dapat dikatakan sebagai narasi yang merep- resentasikan realitas. Namun karena film merupakan gubahan sutradara, maka urutan peris- tiwa itu tentunya sudah dibubuhi pesan atau niatan tertentu sutradara. Dengan mengambil film Sang Pencerah karya Hanung Bramantyo sebagai studi kasus, dilakukan identifikasi pesan dan makna yang termuat di dalam film tersebut. Kajian ini menggunakan metode analisis teks visual naratif dengan teori narasi Genette dan semiotika Peirce sebagai pembantu. Dari hasil analisis struktur narasiditemukan bahwa Sang Pencerah merupakan film alur tiga babak dengan pola linier. Aspek cahaya yang dikorelasikan dengan makna pencerahan, tampak dimanfaat- kan sebagai pengikat rangkaian inti cerita. Melalui analisis berbagai penanda visual selanjutnya ditemukan bahwa gagasan pembaharuan (pencerahan yang diketengahkan sutradara dalam film ini merupakanrasionalitas modernisme Barat versus Ahmad Dahlan. Sebuah rasionalitas yang mengejawantahkan kesantunan dan kearifan lokal sebagai keutuhan jati diri pengimbang kebaharuan.   Kata kunci: narasi, film, cahaya, pesan, modernisme

    Full Text Available This paper describes the results of an emergency recording and archiving of a historic structure in Southern Alberta and explores the lessons learned. Digital recording of the Quon Sang Lung Laundry building in Fort Macleod, Alberta, was a joint initiative between Alberta Culture and Tourism and the University of Calgary. The Quon Sang Lung Laundry was a boomtown-style wood structure situated in the Fort Macleod Provincial Historic Area, Alberta. Built in the mid-1800s, the structure was one of the four buildings comprising Fort Macleod’s Chinatown. Its association with Chinese immigration, settlement, and emergence of Chinese-owned businesses in early twentieth-century Alberta, made the Quon Sang Lung Laundry a unique and very significant historic resource. In recent years, a condition assessment of the structure indicated that the building was not safe and that the extent of the instability could lead to a sudden collapse. In response, Alberta Culture and Tourism engaged the Departments of Anthropology and Archaeology and Geomatics Engineering from the University of Calgary, to digitally preserve the laundry building. A complete survey including the laser scanning of all the remaining elements of the original structure, was undertaken. Through digital modeling, the work guarantees that a three-dimensional representation of the building is available for future use. This includes accurate 3D renders of the exterior and interior spaces and a collection of architectural drawings comprising floor plans, sections, and elevations.

    A novel bioequivalence testing approach was used to determine intrasubject variability and switchability of two ciclosporin formulations, SangCya (test) and Neoral (reference). Twenty healthy volunteers were enrolled into a single-dose, randomized, open-label, 4-period, 2-sequence study with a crossover replicate design. Subject-by-formulation interaction variances were compared using a mixed effects linear model. Intrasubject variability for ln AUC(0-infinity) and ln C(max) of SangCya and Neoral were not significantly different. The 95% confidence intervals of the intrasubject variability of AUC(0-infinity) (0.94) and C(max) (1.28) as determined using the bootstrap nonparametric percentile method (n = 2,000) were below the individual bioequivalence limit estimated at 2.25. We concluded equivalent intrasubject variability of ciclosporin pharmacokinetics and switchability between SangCya and Neoral.

    Full Text Available Accurate phenotyping of red blood cells (RBCs can be difficult in transfusion-dependent patients such as those with thalassemia and sickle cells anemia because of the presence of previously transfused RBCs in the patient's circulation. Recently, the molecular basis associated with the expression of many blood group antigens was established. This allowed the development of a plethora of polymerase chain reaction-based tests for identification of the blood group antigens by testing DNA. The determination of blood group polymorphism at the genomic level facilitates the resolution of clinical problems that cannot be addressed by hemagglutination. They are useful to (a determine antigen types for which currently available antibodies are weakly reactive; (b type patients who have been recently transfused; (c identify fetuses at risk for hemolytic disease of the newborn; and (d to increase the reliability of repositories of antigen negative RBCs for transfusion. It is important to note that PCR based assays are prone to different types of errors that those observed with hemagglutination assays. For instance, contamination with amplified products may lead to false positive test results. In addition, the identification of a particular genotype does not necessarily mean that the antigen will be expressed on the RBC membrane.Os antígenos eritrocitários são herdados geneticamente e definidos por seqüências de aminoácidos específicos constituindo uma proteína ou por carboidratos ligados a estas proteínas ou à lipídios.

    Full Text Available Acupuncture has fairly good weight-reducing effect in treating simple obesity due to the neuroendocrine regulation. In this study, the anti-obesity effects of herbal acupuncture (HA with Sang-hwang (Phellinus linteus at Fuai (SP16 were investigated in the rat fed on high-fat (HF diet. Sang-hwang mushroom has been proven to have anti-carcinogenic effects and Sang-hwang extracts are highly effective in treatment and preventive treatment of AIDS, diabetes and high blood-pressure. To determine whether the Sang-hwang herbal acupuncture may have the anti-obesity effect, male Sprague-Dawley (4-wk-old rats were fed a HF diet for 5 wk, which produced significant weight gain compared to rats were fed a normal diet, and then herbal acupuncture were treated for 3 wk in HF diet group. The body weight, food consumption, food effeciency ratio (FER, body fat mass, plasma nitric oxide (NO were investigated in rats fed on normal diet, HF diet, and HF diet with HA (HF-diet-HA groups. NO has been proposed to be involved in the regulation of food intake. In addition, the expression of appetite peptides such as orexigenic peptide neuropeptide Y (NPY and the anorectic peptide cholecystokinin (CCK were observed in the hypothalamus. HF-HA group reduced body weight gain, FER, body fat contents and NO concentration compared to HF diet group. The expression of NPY was reduced in arcuate nucleus (ARC, and CCK was increased in the paraventricular nucleus (PVN after treatment of HA. In conclusion, Sang-hwang HA reduced adipocity, plasma NO and hypothalamic NPY, but increased CCK expression in the HF diet-induced obesity rat, therefore HA may have anti-obesity action through regulating body weight and appetite peptide of the central nervous system.

    2014-11-01

    The present study on avifaunal diversity carried out for three years at the Krishna River Basin, Sangli District revealed a total of 126 species of birds belonging to 30 families, of which 91 species were resident, 16 migratory, 12 resident and local migratory and 7 species were resident and migratory. Among the migrant birds, Rosy Starling Sturnus roseus was dominant in the study area. Commonly recorded resident bird species were, Red vented bulbul, Jungle crow, House sparrow, Common myna, Brahminy myna, Rock pigeon, Spotted dove, Rose ringed parakeet, Indian robin, White-browed fantail-flycatcher and Small sunbird. Most of the families had one or two species, whereas Muscicapidae family alone had 16 species. Forty one species of waterfowls were recorded in this small landscape. Out of 126 bird species, 38 were insectivorous, 28 piscivorous, 25 omnivorous, 19 carnivorous, 9 granivorous, 5 frugivorous and 2 species were nectar sucker and insectivorous. These results suggest that richness of avifauna in the Krishna River Basin, Western Maharashtra might be due to large aquatic ground, varied vegetations and favourable environmental conditions.

  20. Sang Froid in a time of trouble: is a vaccine against HIV possible?

    Full Text Available Abstract Since the announcement of the STEP trial results in the past months, we have heard many sober pronouncements on the possibility of an HIV vaccine. On the other hand, optimistic quotations have been liberally used, from Shakespeare's Henry V's "Once more unto the breach, dear friends" to Winston Churchill's definition of success as "going from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm". I will forgo optimistic quotations for the phrase "Sang Froid", which translates literally from the French as "cold blood"; what it really means is to avoid panic when things look bad, to step back and coolly evaluate the situation. This is not to counsel easy optimism or to fly in face of the facts, but I believe that while the situation is serious, it is not desperate. I should stipulate at the outset that I am neither an immunologist nor an expert in HIV, but someone who has spent his life in vaccine development. What I will try to do is to provide a point of view from that experience. There is no doubt that the results of STEP were disappointing: not only did the vaccine fail to control viral load, but may have adversely affected susceptibility to infection. But HIV is not the only vaccine to experience difficulties; what lessons can we glean from prior vaccine development?

    Full Text Available Background: The practice of law is a high prestige, high skill, high income and high stress profession. The present study was conducted to find out the role of stressors on mental well being of the lawyers. Objectives: To study the occupational stress amongst the lawyers and to examine the correlates of job satisfaction in them, and to study the gender difference (if any of stress and job satisfaction. Also to study the association between levels of stress and substance abuse disorders. Methodology: A cross sectional study was conducted in Dist. Court Sangli, which involved collection of data using predesigned proforma. By using Systematic Random sampling technique, out of total 240 lawyers 120(76 males and 44 females were interviewed. Presumptive Stress Life Event Scale (PSLES was used as a validated screening tool to calculate their Mental Stress Score. The level of Job Satisfaction was scored by 3 point scaling system taking 10 independent variables as the predictors of job satisfaction. Data was analyzed using appropriate statistical tests. Results: 88.3% lawyers had experienced stress. The female lawyers had high Mean Mental Stress Score. 81.8% female lawyers had high Job satisfaction Score i.e. low Job satisfaction. 52.8% of the male lawyers having stress reported substance abuse disorders. Conclusion: The female lawyers experience significantly greater stress and burnouts as compared to males. Job satisfaction is significantly and negatively correlated with stress. The need of the hour is to make an effort in coping with stress amongst lawyers. [National J of Med Res 2012; 2(2.000: 141-144

    Full Text Available Availability of veterinary services is very important for development of livestock sector in India. In many locations apart from state veterinary services other veterinary services are also available and the veterinary service users have the choice available with them regarding the service providers. The preference of service providers depend upon the location, distance, livestock holding and capacity to pay and quality of services. A study was conducted among the livestock owners of Sangli district in Maharastra to assess the preference of the livestock owners towards a particular veterinary service provider. Majority of large farmers preferred state veterinary services and cooperative veterinary services where it had strong presence. Cooperative veterinary service can be a good alternative to the state veterinary services and the private veterinary service providers are still not preferred in the rural area. [Vet.

    “Ji Mi”and“Sang Luo Zhi Xia” are two phrases in Xunzi. The annotation of“Mi”in“Ji Mi” should be“Lei”(pile up) and“Ji Mi”means accumulation. The etymology of“Sang Luo” is two verses in the Book of Songs, which are metaphor to the poor life and being abandoned eventually after marriage of the heroine. After this usage was fixed,“Sang Luo”became a synonym for dilemma. So,“Sang Luo Zhi Xia”means in dilemma.%“积靡”见于《荀子·儒效》篇,旧注训“靡”为“顺”,释为“顺其积习”。从原文语境以及荀子在人性论问题上对“积”、“顺”二词的使用来看,旧注不可从。“靡”当训为“累”,“积靡”即“积累”,是同义连用的复合词。“桑落之下”见于《荀子·宥坐》篇,注家众说纷纭。“桑落”的语源当是《诗经·卫风·氓》所言“桑之落矣,其黄而陨”,指困窘的处境,“桑落之下”即困境之下。

    We introduce the Lee Sang Gak Telescope (LSGT), a remotely operated, robotic 0.43-meter telescope. The telescope was installed at the Siding Spring Observatory, Australia, in 2014 October, to secure regular and exclusive access to the dark sky and excellent atmospheric conditions in the southern hemisphere from the Seoul National University (SNU) campus. Here, we describe the LSGT system and its performance, present example images from early observations, and discuss a future plan to upgrade the system. The use of the telescope includes (i) long-term monitoring observations of nearby galaxies, active galactic nuclei, and supernovae; (ii) rapid follow-up observations of transients such as gamma-ray bursts and gravitational wave sources; and (iii) observations for educational activities at SNU. Based on observations performed so far, we find that the telescope is capable of providing images to a depth of R=21.5 mag (point source detection) at 5-sigma with 15 min total integration time under good observing condi...

O agente que leva o coração à parada pode ser potássio, magnésio, procaína ou, mesmo, quelantes e bloqueadores de cálcio associados entre si ou não, contando com a edição da hipotermia ou não. Deve-se ficar atento para a falsa sensação de proteção a que a baixa temperatura possa nos induzir, uma vez que o frio, por si só, não é suficiente para manter o miocárdio viável por longos períodos. Substratos, como glicose e oxigênio, devem ser fornecidos durante o período de clampeamento aórtico, para garantir algum metabolismo aeróbio, nesse período. A adição de outros substratos, como glutamato, aspartato e lactato, assim como ATP ou creatina fosfato, precursores de intermediários do ciclo de Krebs, podem melhorar muito a proteção miocárdica.

Pode-se concluir que, embora a incoagulabilidade sangüínea apresente associação com manifestações precoces do envenenamento, não tem boa associação com a evolução clínica do paciente.This study aimed at assessing, in the envenoming by Bothrops, factors that are associated with blood incoagulability. Information was obtained from the charts of 2,991 patients admitted to Instituto Butantan, from 1981 to 1990.

Sur les 139 repas identifiés, 55 % ont été pris sur le Céphalophe à front noir (Cephalophus nigrifrons et 19 % sur le porc. Stomoxys transvittatus, espèce la plus abondante à Makokou, est très opportuniste : 68 % des repas ont été pris sur six hôtes différents, dont 48 % sur le céphalophe à front noir, et 32 % n’ont pas été identifiés sur les hôtes testés. S. xanthomelas a pris 50 % de ses repas sur singe Moustac (Cercopithecus cephus et 7 % sur homme. S. calcitrans, espèce des milieux anthropisés, a pris 33 % de ses repas sur homme. Ces trois espèces peuvent donc prendre leurs repas de sang sur la faune sauvage et sur homme. Elles pourraient ainsi jouer un rôle important dans l’émergence de zoonoses. Les quatre autres espèces n’ont pris leurs repas que sur la faune sauvage et le porc, seul exemple d’animal domestique dans cette étude. Cette étude préliminaire doit être poursuivie sur un plus grand nombre d’individus, en augmentant la diversité des hôtes potentiels testés

    Merging haloes with similar masses (i.e., major mergers) pose significant challenges for halo finders. We compare five halo finding algorithms' (AHF, HBT, Rockstar, SubFind, and VELOCIraptor) recovery of halo properties for both isolated and cosmological major mergers. We find that halo positions and velocities are often robust, but mass biases exist for every technique. The algorithms also show strong disagreement in the prevalence and duration of major mergers, especially at high redshifts (z>1). This raises significant uncertainties for theoretical models that require major mergers for, e.g., galaxy morphology changes, size changes, or black hole growth, as well as for finding Bullet Cluster analogues. All finders not using temporal information also show host halo and subhalo relationship swaps over successive timesteps, requiring careful merger tree construction to avoid problematic mass accretion histories. We suggest that future algorithms should combine phase-space and temporal information to avoid the...

    We present a study of a comparison of spin distributions of subhaloes found associated with a host halo. The subhaloes are found within two cosmological simulation families of Milky Way-like galaxies, namely the Aquarius and GHALO simulations. These two simulations use different gravity codes and cosmologies. We employ ten different substructure finders, which span a wide range of methodologies from simple overdensity in configuration space to full 6-d phase space analysis of particles.We subject the results to a common post-processing pipeline to analyse the results in a consistent manner, recovering the dimensionless spin parameter. We find that spin distribution is an excellent indicator of how well the removal of background particles (unbinding) has been carried out. We also find that the spin distribution decreases for substructure the nearer they are to the host halo's, and that the value of the spin parameter rises with enclosed mass towards the edge of the substructure. Finally subhaloes are less rota...

O objetivo deste relato é apresentar dois casos de pacientes Testemunhas de Jeová que apresentaram cefaléia após anestesia subaracnóidea e que foram tratados com tampão sangüíneo peridural com um sistema fechado de transfusão do sangue venoso para o espaço peridural. Os casos ocorreram em hospitais de duas cidades diferentes. RELATO DOS CASOS: Um paciente do sexo masculino, com 21 anos, e uma paciente do sexo feminino, com 32 anos, apresentaram cefaléia pós-raquianestesia para cirurgia ambulatorial. Como os pacientes eram Testemunhas de Jeová, o tampão sangüíneo foi realizado com um sistema fechado. O sistema foi preparado em condições estéreis, utilizando-se os seguintes materiais: dois equipos de soro cortados em segmentos de 60 cm, uma conexão de duas vias, uma torneira de três vias e uma seringa de 20 ml. O sistema foi montado de modo a permitir uma conexão com a agulha da venopunção (20G, uma conexão à torneira de três vias, sendo que às outras duas vias foram conectados uma seringa de 20 ml e o outro segmento do equipo de soro, que seria conectado à agulha de peridural.

    Full Text Available Os principais objetivos dos desvios veno-venosos durante o transplante ortotópico de fígado são: atenuação da estase venosa subdiafragmática, manutenção do retorno satisfatório de sangue ao coração e perfusão tissular eficiente. Investigações sobre PP, PVCIIH, PVC, PAM e PPR, bem como D PP e D PVCIIH foram conduzidas em seis cães, sob anestesia geral, com fígados perfundidos pela Artéria Hepática, submetidos a desvios porta-jugular e cava-jugular passivos durante 2 horas. Estes desvios não foram capazes de evitar estagnação de sangue na VP e VCIIH, acarretando estase e menor retorno sangüíneo ao coração, sugeridos por aumentos significativos de PP e PVCIIH e quedas significantes nos níveis de PVC. Os valores de PAM não apresentaram diferenças significativas em relação ao tempo T0, na maior parte dos tempos avaliados, enquanto que os valores de PPR foram significativamente menores que os verificados no tempo T0, na maioria dos tempos estudados. Tais pressões mantiveram-se, respectivamente, acima de 100 e 50 mm de Hg, atribuindo-se tais resultados, em parte, à vasoconstricção arteriolar generalizada. Incrementos de pressão na VP (D PP foram significativamente menos elevados que aqueles verificados na VCIIH (D PVCIIH, atribuindo-se tal diferença à complacência esplâncnica. Decréscimos ulteriores dos níveis de PP e PVCIIH sugerem queda do fluxo arterial para os territórios esplâncnico e sistêmico, decorrente de diminuição do retorno sangüíneo ao coração. Determinações de PP, PVCIIH, PVC, PAM e PPR podem constituir meio prático de avaliação hemodinâmica do desvio veno-venoso.

    Full Text Available Sangfaget har en lang og sterk tradisjon i den norske skolestua og sangboka har vært et sentralt læremiddel i mer enn 150 år. Formålet med denne artikkelen er å belyse de mange og ulike begrunnelser som er blitt knyttet til faget opp gjennom tidene og å vise hvilket innhold sangbøkene har søkt å formidle. Presentasjonen av sangfagets begrunnelser er basert på en undersøkelse av skolehistoriske tekster og læreplaner fra tidlig på 1800-tallet fram til vår tid. Jeg har også sett på forordene og forfatternes vektlegging av sangrepertoar og annet sang- og musikkfaglig innhold i de mest toneangivende sangbøkene fra samme periode. For å finne ut hvilke sanger elevene er blitt tilbudt og hvilke verdier sangene formidler, har jeg kartlagt repertoarvalget i tolv sangbokverk fra 1850 (Behrens’ Skolesangbog til 2008 (Amsrud & Bjørnstads Sang i Norge. Artikkelen viser at begrunnelsene for sangfaget favner vidt og at både de og innholdet i sangbøkene har endret seg i takt med utviklingen i utdanningssystemet og i samfunnet forøvrig. Videreformidling av sentrale sanger i norsk kulturarv har selvsagt stått sentralt. Men sangfaget har også befattet seg med opplæring i musikkteori, notelære og stemmepleie, og det har hatt som oppgave å utvikle kvalitetsbevissthet, samhold og fellesskap i tillegg til å bidra til læring og trivsel i andre fag. Når det gjelder repertoarvalg, har utviklingen gått fra en hovedvekt på sanger med et religiøst og oppdragende innhold via nasjonale sanger til en stadig økende andel ”blott-til-lyst-sanger” og sanger fra populærmusikkens område. Til tross for at repertoarvalget har endret seg, er det mange sanger som går igjen gjennom hele perioden. Med referanse til en definisjon av kanon som ”stabile forekomster” identifiserer artikkelen 34 sanger som kan sies å utgjøre en del av ”den norske sangskatten”.

    Full Text Available INTRODUÇÃO: Nos últimos anos, tem havido relatos de anormalidades do fluxo sanguíneo cerebral em indivíduos com o abuso de cocaína, detectadas por meio de tomografia computadorizada por emissão de fóton único (SPECT. Esse padrão anormal de perfusão cerebral tem sido associado a prejuízos cognitivos mas não a alterações observáveis por meio de exames de neuroimagem estrutural. Um problema envolvendo a maioria dos trabalhos publicados sobre esse tema é a inclusão de um grande número de usuários de heroína nas amostras estudadas. Essa outra droga também parece afetar o padrão de perfusão cerebral, particularmente durante estados de abstinência. MÉTODOS: Quatorze pacientes dependentes de cocaína (nenhum com uso de opióides e 14 voluntários normais (grupo controle foram submetidos a exames de SPECT com dímero de etil-cisteína marcado com tecnécio-99m. A análise dos exames de SPECT foi realizada por meio de análise visual qualitativa das imagens obtidas (procedimento padrão na prática clínica, realizada por um radiologista não informado sobre o diagnóstico dos indivíduos avaliados.

    Sang-Tong-Jian (STJ), a novel formula composed of flavonoids and alkaloids derived from mulberry leaf, has been found to reduce blood glucose levels in rats with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) in our previous studies. However, the precise mechanisms remain unknown. Insulin resistance is the main characteristic of T2DM, which may be due to impairment of the PI3K/AKT signaling pathway. In this study, we investigated the effects of STJ on glycometabolism and insulin resistance in KKAy mice. A total of 50 KKAy male mice were randomly divided into five groups: model, metformin at 260mg/kg, and STJ at 105, 210 and 420mg/kg. C57BL/6J mice were used as the control group. Random blood glucose levels in KKAy mice were determined every 10days after treatments. At the 10th and 13th week, oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) and insulin tolerance test (ITT) were conducted after a 12h overnight fast, respectively. After 13-week treatments, glycosylated hemoglobin (GHb) and serum insulin were measured using a colorimetric method and ELISA kits. Liver glycogen and muscle glycogen levels were analyzed using a colorimetric method. The morphology of pancreas, liver, skeletal muscle and epididymal fat were visualized by haematoxylin and eosin staining. The gene level of GLUT2 (liver) and GLUT4 (skeletal muscle, epididymal fat) were detected by real-time PCR. The proteins of GLUT2, GLUT4, IRS1, PI3K, AKT and their phosphorylation were assayed by Western blot analyses. STJ significantly decreased the random blood glucose and GHb levels, and increased liver and muscle glycogen levels. The results of OGTT and ITT and measurement of serum insulin indicated that STJ ameliorated insulin resistance in KKAy mice. STJ treatments also ameliorated the histopathological alterations in pancreas, liver, skeletal muscle and epididymal fat in KKAy mice. Furthermore, STJ upregulated the gene and protein expression of GLUT2 (liver) and GLUT4 (skeletal muscle, epididymal fat). Meanwhile, GLUT4

    The present paper reports the results obtained after extracorporeal irradiation of circulating blood of calves. Animals are divided in 3 groups as follows: - control animals: blood circulation without irradiation; - calves which received 40000 rads during 24 hours of continuous irradiation; - calves which received the same dose, during a period of 5 days (5 hours every day). The more interesting results are: - the early lymphopenia which persists for 7 or 8 weeks and may be in relationship with the change of immunoglobulins; - a constant hyperfibrinemia (12 g/l) never reported, as far as we know, by authors using I.E.C. Several hypothesis are advanced to explain this phenomenon.

Les resultats les plus marquants sont d'une part une lymphopenie precoce se prolongeant durant 7 a 8 semaines et qui pourrait etre reliee aux modifications observees sur les immunoglobulines.

Determinou-se o glicogênio miocárdico e a respiração mitocondrial no miocárdio ventricular, imediatamente ao final do período de infusão intermitente das soluções cardioplégicas (Fase I e após reperfusão (Fase II, durante a qual analisou-se, também, a função ventricular esquerda (dP/dtmax. Resultados: Detectou-se queda significativa nos níveis de glicogênio miocárdico, de 53% e 58%, nos grupos com e sem aminoácidos, respectivamente, na fase sem reperfusão. Após reperfusão, não houve diferenças significativas nos níveis de glicogênio miocárdico entre os grupos experimentais e entre estes e seus respectivos controles. A análise da respiração mitocondrial não mostrou diferença significativa entre os grupos experimentais, nem entre cada grupo experimental e seu controle, quer seja com ou sem reperfusão. Quanto à função ventricular, os resultados da dP/dtmax não mostraram diferença significativa em relação aos controles, nem entre os grupos experimentais. Conclusões: A adição de aspartato e glutamato à solução cardioplégica sangüínea a 37°C, infundida anterogradamente e de forma intermitente, não acrescentou benefícios a este método de proteção miocárdica em corações normais de coelhos.Purpose: The purpose of this investigation was to find out whether the addition of aspartate and glutamate improved the myocardial protection afforded by a

    Full Text Available Root debridement generates a smear layer which contains microorganisms and toxins that could interfere in periodontal healing. For this reason, different substances have been used to remove it and to expose collagen fibers at the tooth surface. Blood element adhesion to demineralized roots and clot stabilization by collagen fibers are extremely important for the success of periodontal surgery. The aim of this study was to evaluate the different patterns of blood element adsorption and adhesion to root surfaces only irrigated with distilled water and after application of a manipulated or an industrialized EDTA gel. Thirty samples were planed, equally divided into three groups and treated with distilled water (control, a manipulated EDTA gel or an industrialized one. Immediately after, samples were exposed to fresh blood and prepared for scanning electron microscopy. Untreated planed dentin presented the best results with blood cells entrapped in a thick web of fibrin. In the manipulated EDTA group, the web of fibrin was thick with sparse blood elements. The worst result was seen with the industrialized EDTA group, in which no blood elements could be seen. Statistical difference was obtained between control and industrialized EDTA groups. Surfaces only irrigated presented the most organized fibrin network and cell entrapment.A raspagem gera "smear layer", a qual contém microrganismos e toxinas que podem interferir no reparo periodontal.

    150mmHg, the permeate flux hardly changes, which confirms that once concentration polarization is established, the system membrane-polarization layer ceases to behave as a porous medium even with increased resistance. These data can explain the permeate increase observed when pressure and flow pulsations at 1Hz are superimposed on the retentate. La plasmaphérèse par membrane consiste à filtrer le plasma au travers d'une membrane microporeuse sous l'action de la pression transmembranaire. Comme toutes filtrations tangentielles, le flux de filtration augmente linéairement aux faibles pressions transmembranaires, puis atteint un plateau aux fortes pressions à cause du phénomène de polarisation de concentration et du colmatage de la membrane. La polarisation de concentration est due à la formation d'une couche fortement concentrée en soluté au voisinage de la membrane. Le temps de formation de cette couche est rapide, généralement inférieur à une minute. En microfiltration du sang, cette couche est constituée des globules qui forment une seconde membrane réversible qui limite le flux de filtration. Dans ce régime, le flux de perméat devient indépendant de la pression transmembranaire et dépend principalement du taux de cisaillement. Nous avons entrepris une étude de la réponse transitoire d'une membrane à des échelons de pression transmembranaire afin de comprendre la cinétique d'établissement de ces phénomènes. Lorsque l'on passe brusquement d'un régime non polarisé à celui polarisé, le flux de filtration croît jusqu'à un pic en 0,4 à 0,6s dépassant la valeur du plateau de 60 à 80%, puis il revient à sa valeur d'équilibre correspondant au régime de polarisation de concentration en 3 à 4s. Les données expérimentales montrent que la membrane garde une perméabilité originale pendant seulement 0,5s lors d'un changement brusque de pression et que la couche de polarisation de concentration met environ 3 à 4s à s'établir.

    Full Text Available INTRODUCTION: An optimum range has been suggested for nortriptyline blood levels, above or below which patients respond poorly or do not respond at all to treatment. METHODS: A meta-analysis of published studies was performed to verify the existence of an optimal blood concentration range or therapeutic window in nortriptyline-treated depression patients. A MEDLINE search through the years 1970-1999 was carried out to identify original papers and review articles. Data concerning blood levels and percentage improvement were obtained concerning all included pacients. Univariate and multivariate analyses were performed for data comparison. Possible confounding variables, such as pre-treatment, setting (in or outpatients, and duration of treatment were also evaluated. RESULTS: From the 22 published studies found, only six of them with patients' individual data were included. We found an optimal range for nortriptyline concentrations (OR= 2.25, 95% CI = 1.15 to 4.39, p= 0.02. CONCLUSIONS: There may be a biphasic relationship of efficacy to plasma concentrations of nortriptyline, with a therapeutic window between 46 to 236 ng/ml.INTRODUÇÃO: Sugere-se a existência de uma faixa de concentração ótima para os níveis sangüíneos da nortriptilina, acima e abaixo da qual os pacientes não respondem ao tratamento ou o fazem pobremente.

    Full Text Available OBJETIVOS: As cardioplegias sangüíneas normotérmica e hipotérmica, administradas de maneira anterógrada e intermitente, têm demonstrado serem eficientes na proteção miocárdica em cirurgias de revascularização miocárdica. Entretanto, pouco se conhece da eficiência dessas técnicas em corações hipertróficos. Dessa maneira, foram estudados seus efeitos nos substratos intracelulares miocárdicos em pacientes portadores de estenose aórtica, submetidos a cirurgia de troca valvar aórtica. CASUÍSTICA E MÉTODOS: A concentração intracelular miocárdica dos substratos (ATP, lactato, glutamato, aspartato e alanina foi medida em biópsias de ventrículo esquerdo de 20 pacientes submetidos a troca valvar aórtica, usando, como método de proteção miocárdica, cardioplegia sangüínea normotérmica (n=10 ou hipotérmica (n=10, administradas de forma anterógrada e intermitente. As biópsias foram retiradas 5 minutos após o início da circulação extracorpórea (controle, 30 minutos após o pinçamento aórtico (isquemia e 20 minutos após o despinçamento (reperfusão. RESULTADOS: Não houve alterações significantes na concentração intracelular dos substratos nas amostras coletadas durante o período isquêmico, em comparação ao controle. Na reperfusão, entretanto, houve significante queda nos valores de ATP e aminoácidos em ambos os grupos, em relação ao grupo controle. CONCLUSÃO: Os dados sugerem que ambos os protocolos de proteção miocárdica empregados não foram eficientes na proteção miocárdica de corações hipertróficos.

    Le but de ce travail était de déterminer la prévalence du virus de l’immunodéficience humaine (VIH), du virus de l’hépatite B (VHB) et C (VHC) sur les dons du sang collectés au Centre de transfusion sanguine(CTS) de l’hôpital militaire d’instruction Mohammed V entre 2010 et 2012. Etude rétrospective menée auprès des donneurs de sang militaires âgés de 18 à 50 ans avec prédominance masculine (95%). L’entretien médical pré-don constitue la première barrière de sélection des sujets à risque. Le dépistage biologique était réalisé par technique immuno-enzymatique en milieu liquide utilisant des anticorps et/ou des antigènes. L’ELISA (enzyme linked immuno-sorbent assay) combiné de quatrième génération pour VHC et VIH a été utilisé. La confirmation a été faite en réalisant la même technique en double au CTS et au laboratoire de virologie. Dans notre série de 25661 échantillons testés, la prévalence du VHB était 3,97‰ (n=102), celle de VHC était 2,45 ‰ (n=63), celle de VIH était 0,15 ‰ (n=4). Un seul cas de coïnfection (0,039 ‰) par le VHB et VHC a été noté, aucune association entre VIH-VHB, VIH-VHC ou VHB, VHC et VIH n’a été enregistrée. Les taux faibles de séroprévalence des marqueurs viraux de notre étude montrent l’amélioration des mesures préventives en ce qui concerne la sélection des donneurs et des tests de dépistage. Cette prévalence constatée incite à maintenir l’utilisation du réactif combiné qui est la seule alternative à la biologie moléculaire pour les pays en voie de développement. PMID:28292147

    Full Text Available Background: Prevailing socio-cultural influences lead females to desire a thin body and males a muscular body, especially in adolescents. This results in body image anxiety which may lead to social phobia. Together they can develop depression. The aim was to study the correlation of body image anxiety with social phobia and their association with depression, among adolescents. Methods: This was a cross-sectional study conducted in randomly selected colleges from a rural area of Sangli district Maharashtra, India. Stratified random sampling technique used with sample size 805. Pretested self-administered questionnaire used. Percentage, Chi-square test, binary logistic regression model was used to estimate odds ratio (OR and its 95% confidence intervals. Results: Of 997 study subjects body image anxiety, social phobia and depression were observed in 232 (23.3%, 193 (19.4% and 326 (32.7% participants, respectively. Binary logistic regression showed that body image anxiety (OR = 1.849 [1.22, 2.804]; P = 0.004 and social phobia (OR = 4.575 [2.952-7.09]; P < 0.001 were significant predictors for depression. Conclusions: Body image anxiety and social phobia are linked with the development of depression. This impresses the need for timely counseling and education among adolescents.

    We reviewed 72 primary central nervous system lymphomas occurring in immunocompetent patients. The cases were reviewed for clinical data, histology, immunophenotype, bcl-2 and p53 expression, and Epstein-Barr virus association. Follow-up was available for 40 patients included in the Groupe Ouest Est d'étude des Leucénies et Autres Maladies du Sang (GOELAMS) lymphomes cérébraux primitifs (LCP 88) trial. Each diagnosis, requiring a consensus among at least 3 pathologists, was performed according to the recent Revised European-American Lymphoma classification and equivalents in the updated Kiel classification. Tumors were predominantly classified as diffuse large B-cell lymphomas. There were 3 T-cell lymphomas and 1 Hodgkin lymphoma. The proteins bcl-2 and p53 were expressed in 35% and 16% of the tested cases, respectively. Epstein-Barr virus was not found by in situ hybridization except in the case classfied as a cerebral localization of Hodgkin disease. No significant association was found between subtypes, bcl-2 or p53 expression, and patient survival. From the standpoint of their biologic characteristics, primary central nervous system lymphomas are very similar to systemic diffuse large B-cell lymphomas. In contrast to AIDS-related primary central nervous system lymphomas, primary central nervous system lymphomas are rarely associated with Epstein-Barr virus and in immunocompetent patients they express bcl-2 at a relatively low rate.

    After giving the essential physico-chemical properties of the colloids, the author considers the biological role of these substances and, in connection with their transport by the blood, their capture by elements of the reticula-endothelial system. A summary is given of present knowledge concerning the role of serous proteins in the transport of substances, particularly that of radio-active colloidal gold. The blood fractions which can take part in colloidal gold transport are the red blood corpuscles, the leukocytes and histiocytic elements as well as the plasma. The radioactive distribution in these various fractions is obtained by autoradiography of blood sediments. After showing the importance of the role of the plasma in radioactive particle transport, the author, describes the attempts made to detect a possible of colloidal gold 198 on the various serous proteins using various methods of separation. The ''in vitro'' and ''in vivo'' bonds between colloidal gold-198 particles and either the serous proteins or healthy specimens or the effusion liquids of pathological origin in man, or due to an experimental inflammation with carregenin in the rat, have been studied. The bonding appears to be effective because of the protective macromolecular layer formed by the gelatine. The different positions of the colloidal grains on the electrophoregram can only be explained by their different physico-chemical characteristics. Gold in the ionic form, on the other hand, is combined only with the albumen is the amount metal present does not exceed a certain value.

La reciprocitat entre el jo poètic i la seva altra es va teixint amb l’ús d’imatges com l’aigua, la sang, la suor, etc., les quals han rebut, tradicionalment, un caràcter abjecte, i Marçal les situa en un primer pla, mostrant la seva expressivitat germinal i pregona.

    We present a detailed comparison of the substructure properties of a single Milky Way sized dark matter halo from the Aquarius suite at five different resolutions, as identified by a variety of different (sub-)halo finders for simulations of cosmic structure formation. These finders span a wide range of techniques and methodologies to extract and quantify substructures within a larger non-homogeneous background density (e.g. a host halo). This includes real-space, phase-space, velocity-space and time- space based finders, as well as finders employing a Voronoi tessellation, friends-of-friends techniques, or refined meshes as the starting point for locating substructure.A common post-processing pipeline was used to uniformly analyse the particle lists provided by each finder. We extract quantitative and comparable measures for the subhaloes, primarily focusing on mass and the peak of the rotation curve for this particular study. We find that all of the finders agree extremely well on the presence and location ...

    Full Text Available JUSTIFICATIVA E OBJETIVOS: A noradrenalina e a dopamina são utilizadas, no estado de choque, com o intuito de oferecer suporte hemodinâmico e restabelecer a perfusão tecidual. As ações farmacológicas desses vasopressores podem ser variadas, deste modo, o uso necessita, por parte do clinico, interpretação dos efeitos hemodinâmicos, com observação das variáveis sistêmica e regional. O objetivo deste estudo foi analisar as publicações acerca dos efeitos da noradrenalina e dopamina em baixas doses na perfusão hepatoesplâncnica e renal no tratamento do choque séptico. MÉTODO: Foram selecionados artigos (n = 27 sobre o uso de noradrenalina e dopamina em choque séptico, publicados no período de 1997 a setembro de 2007 revisados na PubMed, base de dados da National Library of Medicine (NLM. Utilizou-se o recurso MESH com os descritores noradrenaline, dopamine e sepsis. RESULTADOS: Os efeitos de dopamina e noradrenalina na perfusão renal demonstraram ser semelhantes em relação ao aumento da diurese e não alteração na depuração de creatinina. A noradrenalina não afetou a perfusão tissular renal, apesar de elevar o tônus vascular. Quanto aos efeitos esplâncnicos, os dois fármacos demonstraram aumentar o fluxo sangüíneo, porém redistribuem o sangue nesse compartimento. CONCLUSÕES: Os estudos analisados foram controversos não demonstrando consenso acerca do fármaco mais oportuno para o restabelecimento hemodinâmico e manutenção de perfusão regional adequada.BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Norepinephrine and dopamine are used, in the state of shock, with the intention of offering hemodynamic support and to reestablish tissue perfusion. The pharmacological effects of these vasopressors can be diverse, for this reason, their use requires, through the clinician, an interpretation of the hemodynamic effects with observation of the systemic variations and region. With this in mind, the objective of this study was to analyze

    Molecular minimal residual disease (MRD) analysis is fast emerging as an essential clinical decision-making tool for the treatment and follow-up of mature B cell malignancies. Current EuroMRD consensus IGH real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction RQ-PCR assays rely on flow cytometric assessment of diagnostic tumour burdens to construct 'normalized', patient-specific, diagnostic DNA-based MRD quantification standards. Here, we propose a new 'hybrid' assay that relies on plasmid-based quantification of patient-specific IGH VDJ targets by consensus IGH real time (RQ)-PCR, combined with EuroMRD guidelines, for MRD monitoring in lymphoid malignancies. This assay was evaluated for MRD assessment in a total of 273 samples from 29 mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) patients treated within a Groupe Ouest Est d'Etude des Leucémies et Autres Maladies du Sang (GOELAMS) Phase II trial and was feasible, reliable and consistently comparable to gold-standard MRD techniques (99% concordance across all samples including 32 samples within the quantitative range) when analysed in parallel (117 samples). Integrating clinical prognostic parameters and MRD status in peripheral blood at the post-induction stage was predictive of progression-free survival (P = 0·034) thus demonstrating the clinical utility of the approach. Plasmid-based standards for the quantification of IGH VDJ targets are therefore confirmed to offer new opportunities for further standardization and clinical evaluation of MRD-guided management of patients with mature B cell malignancies.

As gestantes, que apresentam aumento importante da coagulabilidade sangüínea, podem, teoricamente, beneficiar-se desse efeito por ocasião do parto. O objetivo deste estudo foi verificar o efeito da anestesia regional sobre a coagulação sangüínea em gestantes.

    Full Text Available This article positions the translations of French verse works (plays and selected collections of individual poets that August Sang, Jaan Kross and Ain Kaalep made in the 1960s, onto the background of their own original works. At that time, August Sang translated four plays by Molière (The Misanthrope, Tartuffe, The School for Wives in 1961; Amphitryon in 1961, which have already been discussed in relation to the tradition of translating the French syllabic verse into Estonian, because these translations form a considerable part of the body of Estonian translations of French verse poetry. For Jaan Kross and Ain Kaalep, the wider context is created by the so-called free verse battles in the 1950s, to which we can link Kross’ translation of a selected collection of Éluard (Veel enne kostma peab, 1969 and Kaalep’s translation of a selected collection of Prévert (Kuidas portreteerida lindu, 1965. One of the two remaining translations by Kross, (Rostand’s Cyrano de Bergerac, 1964, can also be examined in relation to the problems of translating verse, but the other, (Béranger’s Laulud, 1963, should be discussed in the framework of intellectual and cultural resistance, a part of which was also the struggle put up for the existence of free verse in the 1950s and 1960s. Of August Sang’s original work, the article examines his collection of poems Võileib suudlusega (1963, written simultaneously with his translations of Molière’s plays and published right after them. Both the translations and the collection of original poems have attracted critics’ attention with their remarkable lack of linguistic constraint and simplicity. Although Sang has rarely voiced theoretical ideas about translation or explained his method, both his poetic image, outlined in the collection Võileib suudlusega, and his search for right words, reflected in the drafts of his translations, let us believe that the simplicity of expression and the avoidance of marked

    Full Text Available Foi avaliada a ocorrência de alterações nas concentrações de glicose sanguínea, proteína plasmática total, hematócrito e presença de corpos cetônicos na urina de oito búfalas leiteiras da raça Murrah, com idade variando entre 5 e 10 anos, com no mínimo duas lactações, clinicamente sadias, desde 60 dias antes até 60 dias pós-parto. As concentrações médias de glicose sangüínea e o valor médio do hematócrito diminuíram significativamente no pós-parto (pEight lactating buffaloes of the Murrah breed were used from 60 days before up to 60 days after calving, in order to evaluate alterations in the concentration of blood glucose, total plasmatic protein, haematocrit and the presence of ketonic bodies in the urine. The 5 to 10- year old buffaloes were clinically healthy and had had at least two lactations. During the experimental period the animals were maintained on Brachiaria brizantha pasture and supplemented with a mineral mixture and water.The media concentrations of blood glucose and the media values of the haematocrit diminished significantly after calving (p<0,05. The concentrations of total plasmatic protein did not show significant variation during the pre and post-calving period. The ketonic bodies in the pre-calving period were only detected in the urine of one buffaloe, but after the 32nd day of lactation ketonic bodies were detected in all animals. There was a direct relationship between the color of the urine positive by the Rothera test and blood glucose concentrations. It can be concluded that at the beginning of lactation the buffaloes had an energetic deficit, characterized by a decline of blood glucose concentrations and the presence of ketonic bodies in the urine, and that lactation caused a progressive decline of the hematocrit, but that the concentration of total plasmatic protein did not vary during the pre and post-calving period.

    How and why we teach An interview with Mick Nott conducted by David Sang Mick Nott teaches at Sheffield Hallam University. He is editor of School Science Review, and over the last three years he has been organizing a website, book and display for the ASE's Science Teacher Festival. Mick Nott You studied Logic with Physics as your undergraduate degree course, at Sussex, at the end of the 1960s. Wasn't this a rather unusual choice? At school, I loved chemistry, particularly physical chemistry. However, physical chemistry didn't love me when I studied it at university. I grew resentful of the demands made on me with the overcrowded morning lecture programme that was mainly a board-copying exercise and the afternoon hours of labs. I felt stifled; there didn't seem to be any space to express oneself. I wanted a course that allowed me some freedom of thought. So in the summer of 1969 I transferred to the Logic with Physics course. Alongside our 'straight' physics we studied the history of topics like atomic and quantum theory, thermodynamics, mechanics from the Greeks to the Newtonian synthesis and we also had a couple of units in the sociology of science. Amongst the set texts of our first class in the summer of 1969 was Thomas Kuhn's The Structure of Scientific Revolutions. Now well worn with its cover repaired by sticky tape, it still rests on my bookshelves. Reading Kuhn, I understood why I had been dissatisfied with my chemistry course. If I wanted to make it in chemistry I was going to have to conform to thinking exactly like all the other chemists. That wasn't for me. What attracted you into teaching? And where did you teach? I think it was a vocation in that, from the age of 15, I could imagine myself in the role and it was a job I could 'see' myself doing. Now thinking back I suppose it was an obvious way in which a working class child could transcend class barriers. I did my postgraduate teacher training at Sussex because it was assessed by coursework and

    Full Text Available A doença de Jorge Lobo é uma micose cutânea e subcutânea de evolução crônica, causada pelo Lacazia loboi. Os mecanismos envolvidos na suscetibilidade/resistência do hospedeiro frente ao agente não estão ainda elucidados, dentre eles encontra-se a constituição genética. Portanto, o objetivo deste trabalho é avaliar a distribuição fenotípica do grupo sangüíneo Duffy em pacientes com doença de Jorge Lobo e calcular suas freqüências gênicas. Foram analisados 21 pacientes, 13 caucasóides e oito mestiços (tipo moreno claro, provenientes do estado do Acre, e 44 indivíduos, não acometidos por esta doença, habitantes da cidade de Rio Branco (AC, como grupo controle. O fenótipo Duffy foi definido pela presença dos antígenos nas hemácias pela reação de aglutinação dos eritrócitos com anti-soros anti-Fya e anti-Fyb incubando-se a 37ºC e aplicando-se o teste da antiglobulina humana. Os resultados mostram que a distribuição fenotípica do sistema Duffy nos pacientes difere significativamente daquela observada nos controles, pela alta freqüência de indivíduos com fenótipo Fy(a-b-. Observa-se claramente que os pacientes apresentam maior freqüência do alelo FY e menor do alelo FYA do que os controles. O alelo FYB (não inclui os alelos que não são expressos tem praticamente a mesma freqüência nos dois grupos. Com relação à comparação entre distribuição do grupo sangüíneo Duffy com as formas clínicas, sugere maior número de pacientes com forma localizada da doença de Jorge Lobo apresentando um predomínio do fenótipo Fy(a-b+ seguido do fenótipo Fy(a-b- e inexistência do fenótipo Fy(a+b-. Por outro lado, temos a forma disseminada com maior incidência de fenótipo Fy(a+b-. A forma multifocal foi menos expressiva. Desse modo, podemos inferir uma provável prevalência de fenótipo Duffy negativo na região por nós estudada e os poucos dados disponíveis até o momento tornam clara a necessidade de

    Full Text Available RACIONAL: Os sintomas gastrointestinais são freqüentes no diabetes mellitus e podem estar relacionados com o estresse oxidativo, que é definido pelo desequilíbrio entre os sistemas pró-oxidante e o antioxidante. OBJETIVO: Avaliar algumas das alterações gastrointestinais no modelo de diabetes mellitus, como o estresse oxidativo no estômago e no fígado de animais diabéticos e o fluxo sangüíneo na artéria mesentérica superior em diferentes tempos de estudo. MATERIAL E MÉTODOS: Os parâmetros utilizados para verificar o estresse oxidativo no fígado e no estômago foram a mensuração da lipoperoxidação, através das técnicas das substâncias reativas ao ácido tiobarbitúrico e da quimiluminescência e a avaliação da atividade das enzimas antioxidantes catalase, superóxido dismutase e glutationa transferase. Utilizaram-se ratos machos Wistar, pesando entre 250-350 g, que foram divididos em quatro grupos: grupo I - 7 dias de diabetes, grupo II- 30 dias de diabetes, grupo III - 60 dias de diabetes e grupo IV - 90 dias de diabetes. O diabetes foi induzido por administração de estreptozotocina 70 mg/kg intraperitonialmente. RESULTADOS: Houve aumento significativo na lipoperoxidação no estômago e no fígado de animais diabéticos somente no tempo de 90 dias. No estômago, foi encontrada significativa diminuição na atividade das enzimas antioxidantes catalase e glutationa transferase. No fígado, somente a enzima glutationa transferase apresentou diminuição significativa. Houve aumento no fluxo da artéria mesentérica superior dos animais diabéticos com 90 dias, quando comparados aos animais-controle. CONCLUSÕES: É possível supor que o aumento no estresse oxidativo no estômago e no fígado e a alteração no fluxo sangüíneo da artéria mesentérica superior sejam influenciados pelo tempo de diabetes e pela hiperglicemia encontrada nos animais estudados, o que determinaria as alterações gastrointestinais

    Full Text Available Objetivou-se verificar a influência da inclusão de diferentes níveis do ionóforo monensina sódica na dieta sobre os parâmetros ruminal, sangüíneo e urinário e a digestibilidade aparente em novilhas leiteiras. Foram coletadas amostras de líquido ruminal (imediatamente antes e duas horas após a alimentação, sangue, urina e fezes de 28 novilhas da raça Holandesa mantidas em regime de confinamento por 84 dias. As dietas possuíam 32,84% de concentrado (grão de milho, farelo de soja, uréia e mistura mineral, 33,58% de silagem de milho e 33,58% de cana-de-açúcar na matéria seca. Os níveis de ionóforo avaliados foram 0, 14, 28 e 42 mg de monensina/kg de matéria seca da dieta. O experimento foi instalado conforme delineamento inteiramente casualizado, com quatro tratamentos e sete repetições, realizando-se estudos de regressão e contrastes ortogonais. Antes da alimentação, a monensina não influenciou o pH ruminal e a concentração de amônia e dos ácidos acético, propiônico e butírico, mas promoveu redução da relação acetato:propionato. Duas horas após a alimentação, verificou-se redução do pH e da relação acetato:propionato; e aumento da concentração de ácido propiônico. O estudo de contrastes revelou que ocorreu diminuição da concentração de amônia antes da alimentação. Não foram verificadas mudanças significativas nas concentrações de glicose e uréia sangüínea. A monensina também não influenciou os consumos de matéria seca (MS, matéria orgânica, proteína bruta, extrato etéreo (EE, carboidratos totais (CHOT e fibra em detergente neutro.

    Full Text Available Neste estudo foi avaliado o efeito de quatro formulações dietéticas ricas em fibra solúvel na redução de colesterol sangüíneo em ratos. As formulações foram preparadas com farinha de soja desengordurada, farelo de aveia, cebola desidratada, fibra de soja, condimentos e aromas. Duas das formulações continham feijão preto FP(+ e FP(-, nos níveis de 40 e 30%, respectivamente. As outras duas continham feijão vermelho FV(+ e FV(-, nesses mesmos teores. Foram utilizados seis grupos de oito ratos machos, com peso médio inicial de 200g. O grupo Padrão recebeu dieta basal. O grupo Controle recebeu dieta de composição semelhante à Padrão, porém, acrescida de 1% de colesterol cristalino e 0,1% de ácido cólico. As demais dietas foram semelhantes ao grupo Controle, substituídas pelas formulações FV(+, FP(+, FV(- e FP(-, de modo a fornecerem 7,4% de fibra total da dieta. Ratos alimentados com dieta do grupo Controle apresentaram aumento significativo dos níveis de colesterol sérico, peso dos fígados, colesterol e lipídio total das fezes e dos fígados, em relação ao grupo recebendo dieta Padrão. As dietas FV(+, FP(+, FV(- e FP(-, não diferiram entre si quanto ao efeito nos níveis de lipídios séricos e glicose, no peso e lipídio total dos fígados e no peso, umidade e nitrogênio das fezes. No entanto, reduziram significativamente os níveis sangüíneos de colesterol total em 29,0%, os níveis de HDL - colesterol em 34,0%, o peso dos fígados em 11,7% e o colesterol do fígado em 9,0% em relação à dieta Controle. As dietas de feijão vermelho proporcionaram maior redução de colesterol no fígado e maior excreção de lipídio e colesterol nas fezes comparadas com as de feijão preto.The effect of 4 high fiber dietary formulas on reducing blood cholesterol levels in rats was evaluated in the present study. The products were formulated with defatted soy flour, oat bran, dehydrated onion, soy fiber and spices. Two of

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: Investigar os efeitos da suplementação com ácidos graxos ômega-3, nas doses de 0,5 e 1,0g/kg/dia, nos lipídeos sangüíneos de ratos submetidos ou não ao protocolo do nado. MÉTODOS: Ratos Wistar foram divididos em grupos: controle, controle+nado, ácidos graxos ômega-3 e ácidos graxos ômega-3+nado. Os ácidos graxos ômega-3 e ácidos graxos ômega-3+nado receberam suplementação; os demais receberam água por gavagem. Os controle+nado e ácidos graxos ômega-3+nado foram submetidos ao exercício. Foram avaliadas as concentrações plasmáticas de colesterol total, triglicérides e lipoproteína de alta densidade, antes e após os procedimentos experimentais. RESULTADOS: No protocolo de 0,5g/kg/dia, em relação às concentrações de colesterol total, foi observada redução significativa proporcionalmente maior no grupo ácidos graxos ômega-3+nado, apesar de o grupo controle+nado e o ácidos graxos ômega-3 também terem apresentado diminuição. No ensaio de 1,0g/kg/dia todos os grupos apresentaram uma diminuição que foi maior, respectivamente, no ácidos graxos ômega-3+nado e, a seguir, no ácidos graxos ômega-3. Quanto aos triglicérides, foram encontradas reduções em todos os grupos experimentais, que foi maior no grupo ácidos graxos ômega-3+nado, do protocolo de 0,5g/kg/dia, enquanto que no de 1,0g/kg/dia a diminuição foi significativa apenas nos grupos ácidos graxos ômega-3 e ácidos graxos ômega-3+nado. Quanto ao HDL, no protocolo de 0,5g/kg/dia foi encontrado aumento nos animais que não foram suplementados, enquanto que em todos os grupos de 1,0g/kg/dia houve uma diminuição do HDL. CONCLUSÃO: A suplementação com ácidos graxos ômega-3 nas doses 0,5 ou 1,0g/kg/dia, associada ao nado, reduzem as concentrações plasmáticas de colesterol total e triglcérides, mas estudos adicionais, também com outras doses, são necessários para a compreensão da relação entre a ingestão de óleo de peixe e

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: Determinar as alterações sofridas pelo miocárdio durante a cardioplegia sangüínea hipotérmica retrógrada contínua com a adição da indução cardioplégica anterógrada normotérmica. MÉTODO: Análise metabólica da cardioplegia sangüínea hipotérmica retrógrada contínua com indução anterógrada normotérmica em estudo prospectivo de 15 pacientes consecutivos. Amostras de sangue arterial e do seio coronário foram simultaneamente colhidas para análise do conteúdo de oxigênio e da concentração de lactato. Quatro biópsias miocárdicas foram obtidas para análise dos níveis de ATP, ADP, AMP e lactato no miocárdio. A isoenzima CK-MB foi analisada no sangue venoso. RESULTADOS: Não houve mortalidade no grupo. Nenhum paciente necessitou de suporte inotrópico na saída de CEC e não foi detectado IAM per ou pós-operatório. Ocorreu diminuição da extração artério-venosa do lactato e do oxigênio pelo coração durante a reperfusão, havendo uma recuperação parcial ao final de 60 minutos de reperfusão. Os níveis miocárdicos de ATP e de seus nucleotídeos foram mantidos durante o pinçamento aórtico, porém houve redução destes nos primeiros 30 minutos de reperfusão. O lactato acumulou-se no músculo cardíaco durante o pinçamento aórtico, havendo redução durante a reperfusão. CONCLUSÕES: Concluímos por uma análise metabólica que o método não conseguiu evitar o metabolismo anaeróbico durante o período de pinçamento aórtico e que somente com 60 minutos de reperfusão foi observado um grau de recuperação metabólica satisfatória. Provavelmente essas alterações são devido à injúria isquêmica celular ocorrida durante o pinçamento aórtico e parecem ter efeito transitório. Observamos melhora da proteção miocárdica com o acréscimo da indução cardioplégica anterógrada normotérmica.OBJECTIVE: To determinate the alterations suffering by myocardium in the hypothermic retrograde

    Full Text Available The objectives of the study are to criticize the existing accounting education especially in Indonesian universities and to give an alternative idea for a better one. It is done as there is a strong indication that accounting education is driven by intellectual intelligence, market, and other artificial interests. Through a deconstruction approach and critical analysis, the study suggests the internalization of “Mata Ketiga” (the Third Eye in accounting curriculum. Mata Ketiga, that refers to spiritual intelligence, is “the Other” that is consciously entered to the singularity of intellectual intelligence of modern curriculum. Under the internalization of Mata Ketiga, accounting education can be emancipated from the domination of intellectual intelligence, market, and other artificial interests. By doing so, the education may guide an accounting student to find his/her “real self” without neglecting contemporary accounting competence.

    Blood is a complex fluid set into flow by the heart, which is a very low power pump (approximately 1 W), in a connected network consisting of several thousand kilometers of vessels. To do so, it seems reasonable that the mechanical properties of blood contribute to the maintenance of the flow. In spite of the important number of studies on blood rheology, the viscoelasticity of blood has never been characterized in simple shear. The physiological role of the blood clot is to avoid an excessiv...

    Full Text Available DDT was used intensively in vector control programs in Mato Grosso State until 1997. The present study aimed to determine DDT concentrations in blood samples from Brazilian National Health Foundation workers in Mato Grosso. Blood samples were analyzed from 41 sprayers, 20 drivers, and 14 unexposed workers, collected in June 1999 and October 2000 in two regions of the State (Sinop and Cáceres. Sprayers and drivers were occupationally exposed, and no significant differences were found in serum DDT levels between these two groups in either region. Likewise, no significant differences were found in p,p'DDE and total DDT levels between Cáceres and Sinop. However, p,p'DDT levels were higher in Sinop due to the intensive use of this insecticide in the region in recent years. The two regions together showed the following results: total DDT ranging from 7.50µg/L to 875.5µg/L (median = 135.5µg/L for sprayers; from 34.5µg/L to 562.3µg/L (median = 147.7µg/L for drivers; and from undetected to 94.8µg/L (median = 22.5µg/L for unexposed workers.O uso de DDT em campanhas de saúde pública foi intenso em Mato Grosso, tendo sido suspenso em 1997.

Denne artikel er et forsøg på at give mæle til et populærkulturelt marginalområde af Danmark; ikke for at placere det i en offerrolle, men snarere for at komplettere billedet af dansk musikkultur ved at pege på en center/periferi-tilgang. Nærmere bestemt foretages der analyser af de tematikker – kærlighed, politik, arbejde, kristentro, hjemstedsfornemmelse – der er så fremtrædende i den vestjyske musikkultur. Det er en grundtanke, at en opmærksomhed på også denne del af dansk musikliv er ønskværdig i henseende til udformningen af et kulturelt demokrati med henblik på en ligeværdig anerkendelse.

    Full Text Available JUSTIFICATIVA E OBJETIVOS: A manutenção de concentração sangüínea alvo-controlada em níveis aproximadamente constantes do propofol é uma técnica que pode ser empregada de modo simplificado na sala de cirurgia. A finalidade desta pesquisa é comparar clínica e laboratorialmente a infusão de propofol em crianças usando os atributos farmacocinéticos de Short e de Marsh. MÉTODO: Foram estudados 41 pacientes com a idade de 4 a 12 anos, de ambos os sexos, estado físico ASA I ou II, distribuídos em dois grupos S (20 pacientes e M (21 pacientes. No Grupo S utilizaram-se os atributos farmacocinéticos de Short, e no Grupo M, os atributos farmacocinéticos de Marsh. A indução anestésica foi feita com bolus de alfentanil 30 µg.kg-1, propofol 3 mg.kg-1 e pancurônio, 0,08 mg.kg-1 por via venosa. Procedeu-se a intubação traqueal e a manutenção com N2O/O2 (60% em ventilação controlada mecânica. No grupo S a infusão de propofol foi de 254 (30 min seguido de 216 µg.kg-1.min-1 por mais 30 min. No grupo M a infusão de propofol foi de 208 (30 min seguido de 170 µg.kg-1.min-1 por mais 30 min. Através do atributo farmacocinético específico a cada grupo a meta foi a obtenção da concentração-alvo de 4 µg.kg-1 de propofol. Foram colhidas três amostras sangüíneas (aos 20, 40 e 60 minutos para a dosagem do propofol pelo método da Cromatografia Líquida de Alta Performance. RESULTADOS: Os Grupos S e M foram considerados similares quanto à idade, altura, peso e sexo (p > 0,05. Não houve diferença estatística significativa entre os dois grupos estudados para os parâmetros: PAS, PAD, FC, FiN2O, SpO2 da hemoglobina e P ET CO2 no final da expiração. A comparação entre grupos no número de bolus repetidos de alfentanil não foi estatisticamente significativa. O índice bispectral (BIS não apresentou diferença estatisticamente significativa entre M0 (vigília e os demais momentos em ambos os grupos. Os valores Medianos da

    Full Text Available Amostras de sangue foram colhidas de 37 capivaras parasitadas por carrapatos e de 21 capivaras livres de infestação para a identificação dos diferentes tipos celulares circulantes e para realização de hemograma. Após análise morfológica, as células sangüíneas foram identificadas como heterófilos, eosinófilos, basófilos, linfócitos, monócitos e plaquetas. A reação de PAS demonstrou glicogênio no citoplasma dos heterófilos e plaquetas. Reação positiva para mieloperoxidase e lipídeos foi demonstrada apenas nos grânulos citoplasmáticos esféricos dos heterófilos e em todos os grânulos citoplasmáticos dos eosinófilos. O método do azul de bromofenol revelou reação fortemente positiva nos grânulos de heterófilos, eosinófilos, basófilos e nas hemácias. Reação positiva para fosfatase alcalina foi observada nos heterófilos e eosinófilos.

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Approximately 70,000 patients/year undergo surgery for repair of a fractured hip in the United Kingdom. This is associated with 30-day mortality of 9% and survivors have a considerable length of acute hospital stay postoperatively (median 26 days. Use of oesophageal Doppler monitoring to guide intra-operative fluid administration in hip fracture repair has previously been associated with a reduction in hospital stay of 4-5 days. Most hip fracture surgery is now performed under spinal anaesthesia. Oesophageal Doppler monitoring may be unreliable in the presence of spinal anaesthesia and most patients would not tolerate the probes. An alternative method of guiding fluid administration (minimally-invasive arterial pulse contour analysis has been shown to reduce length of stay in high-risk surgical patients but has never been studied in hip fracture surgery. Methods Single-centre randomised controlled parallel group trial. Randomisation by website using computer generated concealed tables. Setting: University hospital in UK. Participants: 128 patients with acute primary hip fracture listed for operative repair under spinal anaesthesia and aged > 65 years. Intervention: Stroke volume guided intra-operative fluid management. Continuous measurement of SV recorded by a calibrated cardiac output monitor (LiDCOplus. Maintenance fluid and 250 ml colloid boluses given to achieve sustained 10% increases in stroke volume. Control group: fluid administration at the responsible (blinded anaesthetist's discretion. The intervention terminates at the end of the surgical procedure and post-operative fluid management is at the responsible anaesthetist's discretion. Primary outcome: length of acute hospital stay is determined by a blinded team of clinicians. Secondary outcomes include number of complications and total cost of care.

    Full Text Available Foram utilizados 10 jacarés Caiman crocodilus yacare, colhendo-se 5 ml do sangue periférico de cada animal. A análise morfológica foi realizada após coloração por Leishman. Para estudo citoquímico, empregaram-se os métodos do PAS, do Sudan black B, da o-toluidina e do azul de bromofenol. Foram identificados 7 tipos celulares: eritrócitos, trombócitos, heterófilos, eosinófilos, basófilos, linfócitos e monócitos azurófilos. Os eritrócitos nucleados apresentam formato elíptico com atividade mitótica e positividade citoplasmática para o azul de bromofenol. Os trombócitos são de formato elíptico, com citoplasma abundante nos pólos, contendo grânulos de glicogênio e núcleo com sulcos profundos. Heterófilos, grosseiramente esféricos, mostram núcleo esférico excêntrico e citoplasma repleto de grânulos corados em salmão, de formato fusiforme, em baqueta, oval ou esférico. A citoquímica nestas células revelou a presença de glicogênio, grânulos citoplasmáticos positivos para azul de bromofenol e parcialmente sudanófilos e positivos para mieloperoxidase. Eosinófilos mostram-se esféricos com núcleo lenticular excêntrico e citoplasma com grânulos esféricos ou ovais róseos positivos para Sudan e mieloperoxidase, porém fracamente para o azul de bromofenol. Basófilos apresentam formato esférico, de tamanho menor em relação aos demais granulócitos, núcleo esférico central e citoplasma com poucos grânulos fortemente basófilos. Linfócitos mostram-se polimórficos com núcleo de formato irregular, citoplasma escasso com projeções e grânulos azurófilos. Monócito azurófilo, de formato esférico, núcleo excêntrico e citoplasma basófilo contendo grânulos azurófilos abundantes.

    Labelled blood cells permit nuclear medicine imaging using their physiological behaviours. The radiolabeling must be performed in vitro because of the lack of specific markers and requires several highly technical stages of preparation. Labelled blood cells have not the medication drug status, so that the nuclear physician conducting the nuclear test is fully liable. In most cases, the physician delegates the technical responsibility to radio-pharmacists. Although the status of radiolabelled autologous cells is not legally defined and in the absence of a specific repository, it is essential that their preparation is subject to the requirements of the rules of French Good Manufacturing Practice published by Agence francaise de securite sanitaire des produits de sante (Afssaps). It would be desirable to harmonize the practices of radiolabeling cellular blood components by editing a repository. (authors)

    Full Text Available Mulberry (桑葚子 sāng shèn zǐ, a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM in Taiwan, has many bioactive substances, including polyphenol and anthocyanins compounds. Over the past decade, many scientific and medical studies have examined mulberry fruit for its antioxidation and antiinflammation effects both in vitro and in vivo. This review thus focuses on the recent advances of mulberry extracts (MEs and their applications in the prevention and treatment of human cancer, liver disease, obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. The ME modulates several apoptotic pathways and matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs to block cancer progression. Mulberry can increase detoxicated and antioxidant enzyme activities and regulate the lipid metabolism to treat hepatic disease resulting from alcohol consumption, high fat diet, lipopolysaccharides (LPS and CCl4 exposure. Of the various compounds in ME, cyanidin 3-glucoside (C3G is the most abundant, and the active compound studied in mulberry research. Herein, the antioxidant and antiinflammatory actions of C3G to improve diabetes and cardiovascular disease are also discussed. These studies provide strong evidence ME may possess the bioactivity to affect the pathogenesis of several chronic diseases.

    Full Text Available Cet article analyse le «roman» écrit par Simone et André Schwarz-Bart, publié par le Seuil en 1967. Texte plutôt que roman, il présente une certaine réalité: la vieillesse d’une femme âgée et noire dans un asile à Paris, vers les années 1950. Mais surtout, il ouvre un espace d’écriture où les oppositions, les paradoxes règnent, se fécondent et ouvrent l’aventure de se dire par les mots. L’écrivain/e devient celle qui nous parle et aussi déparle, porté/e par les mots dont elle/il n’a pas la maîtrise mais la jouissance.

    Full Text Available The diagnosis of disseminated sporotrichosis is usually obtained by necropsy and the isolation of Sporothrix schenckii from blood is rare. Fungemia was shown in vivo through the isolation of S. schenckii from peripheral blood of 13 (n=38, 34.2% cats with naturally acquired sporotrichosis. The coinfection with FIV and with FeLV found, respectively, in 6 (n=34, 17.6% cases and 1 (n=34, 2.9%, apparently did not alter the frequency of the isolation of S. schenckii from peripheral blood. There was agreement of 84.2% comparing these results to the blood culture results simultaneously achieved. In this way, we propose the clot culture as a practical alternative method, efficient and cheap for the diagnosis of disseminated sporotrichosis in cats in vivo.

    Full Text Available There were used 20 mixed breed cats, both male and female, with body mass between 2 and 4 kilograms, that received anesthesia with tiletamine and zolazepam (6,0 mg/kg. The femoral artery was assepticale cannulated and a manometer connected to an air column was connected to the catheter. The MAP was surveyed before and every 15 minutes until the end of the ultrasound examination. The flow of the external ophthalmic artery was measured through the ultrasond equipment, with an echo-doppler and a sectorial transducer of 6.0 MHz, directly applied to the cornea. Each eye had the artery flow surveyed by the equipment's own device, 3 samples being taken. The vascular resistance index was calculated based on the mean values of systolic and diastolic flow of each vasses. An average value for the MAP of 144.9 ± 26.68 mmHg and a flow of 14.28 ± 41.3 cm/sec for the external ophthalmic artery in the right eye in systole, 23.95 ± 11.46 cm/sec in diastole and 42.75 ± 12.64 cm/sec in the left eye in systole, 25.45 ± 9.61 cm/sec in diastole, were verified, there being no significant difference between the eyes. The calculated index of vascular resistance was of 0.4175 ± 0.0774 for the external ophthalmic artery in the right eye and 0,4015 ± 0.0719 for the left eye, without any significant difference between the eyes. The results point to an intrinsic mechanism of flow control, controlled by local factors in the external ophthalmic artery. The values of the resistance index denote a low flow artery. Concluding, this study revealed the reference values, above cited, for the MAP and the blood flow in the external ophthalmic artery in mixed breed cats, anesthetized with tiletamine and zolazepam, and the information that there is no correlation between these values.

    Full Text Available To study the passive immunity transference to the new born foal via colostrum, the total serum protein of 27 foals, being 13 females and 14 males, born from multiparae and primiparae mares was estimated. The blood samples were colected at 6, 12, 18, 24 and 30 hours after the first suckling. The total protein values increase significantly between 6 and 12 hours after the first suckling, being not influenced by the sex of the foal. The total protein values of new borns from multiparae mares were significantly higher than primiparae mares at 12 hours after the first suckling and was mantained in the same levels for 30 hours. It was concluded that the newborn Arabian foals had the highest immunoglobulin absortion between 6 and 12 hours after the first suckling and it is higher in foals born from multiparae than from primiparae mares.

David était souvent utilisé par les rhétoriqueurs pour glorifier l’empereur, mais aussi pour exprimer leurs espoirs et leurs déceptions face à son régime. Ironiquement, David ne fut pas seulement un type et un exemple du...

  9. Critical analysis of the indications for blood transfusions in surgery Análise crítica das indicações de transfusões sangüíneas em cirurgias

    Full Text Available The several factors which precipitate blood transfusion in hospitals are called “transfusion trigger”. The goal of perioperative blood replacement is to maintain satisfactory levels of haemoglobin and blood volume in order to have a better tissue oxygenation. The coagulation factors are used in the coagulations dysfunctions. The ideal is to avoid or to carry out a better blood transfusion in small quantities at a lower risk. Recent reports question the standards previously considered acceptable for blood transfusion. Blood substitute products for the treatment of haemorrhagic shock, blood bioproducts, and the indications for transfusions based on laboratory and clinical parameters, are analysed and discussed in this review.   Os vários fatores que precipitam uma transfusão sanguínea nos hospitais são chamados de “gatilho da transfusão”. O objetivo da reposição de sangue no perioperatório é manter níveis satisfatórios de hemoglobina e de volume sanguíneo para uma adequada oxigenação tecidual. Os fatores de coagulação são importantes nas disfunções de coagulação. O ideal é evitar-se ou promover-se uma melhor transfusão em pequenas quantidades e com menor risco. Trabalhos recentes questionam os padrões previamente considerados aceitáveis para a transfusão sanguínea. Produtos substitutivos para o tratamento do choque hemorrágico, bioprodutos do sangue e as indicações baseadas em parâmetros laboratoriais e clínicos são analisadas e discutidas nesta revisão.

    Full Text Available The aim was to provide reference data for blood gas/acid-base status and electrolytes for non-anesthetized Amazon parrots (Amazona aestiva. Thirty-five adult parrots from Tietê ecologic park were utilized. Arterial blood (0.3ml samples were anaerobically collected from the superficial ulnar artery in heparinized (sodium heparin 1-ml plastic syringes. The samples were immediately analyzed through a portable analyzer (i-STAT*, Abbot, Illinois, USA with cartridges (EG7+. These data were grouped in such a way as to present both mean and standard deviation: body weight (360±37g, respiratory rate (82±33 b/m, temperature (41.8±0.6°C, hydrogen potential (7.452±0.048, carbon dioxide partial pressure (22.1±4.0mmHg, oxygen partial pressure (98.1±7.6mmHg, base excess (-7.9±3.1, plasma concentration of bicarbonate ions (14.8±2.8mmol/L, oxygen saturation (96.2±1.1%, plasma concentration of sodium (147.4±2.2mmol/L, plasma concentration of potassium (3.5±0.53mmol/L, plasma concentration of calcium (0.8±0.28mmol/L, hematocrit (38.7±6.2% and concentration of hemoglobin (13.2±2.1g/dl. This study led us to conclude that, although the results obtained showed hypocapnia and low values of bicarbonate and base excess, when compared to other avian species, these data are very similar. Besides, in spite of the equipment being approved only for human beings, it was considered simple and very useful in the analysis of avian blood samples. By using this equipment we were able to provide references data for non-anaesthetized Amazon parrots.O objetivo deste trabalho foi estabelecer dados de referência do equilíbrio ácido-básico e eletrólitos de papagaios (Amazonas aestiva não anestesiados. Foram utilizados trinta e cinco papagaios oriundos do Parque ecológico do Tietê. Amostras de sangue (0,3ml da artéria superficial ulnar foram coletadas em seringas plásticas (1ml heparinizadas. As amostras foram analisadas imediatamente, usando um analisador portátil (i-stat*, Abbott, Illinois, USA com cartuchos (i-stat EG7+. Os resultados foram demonstrados em média e desvio padrão: peso corpóreo (360±37g, freqüência respiratória (82±33mpm, temperatura (41,8±0,6°C, potencial hidrogeniônico (7,452±0,05, pressão parcial de dióxido de carbono (22,1±4,0mmHg, pressão parcial de oxigênio (98,1±7,6mmHg, excesso de base (-7,45±3,1, saturação da hemoglobina (96,2±1,1%, concentração plasmática de sódio (147,4±2,2mmol/L, concentração plasmática de potássio (3,5±0,53mmol/L, concentração plasmática de cálcio (0,8±0,28mmol/L, hematócrito (38,7±6,2% e concentração de hemoglobina (13,2±2,1g/dl. Este estudo nos levou a concluir que embora os animais apresentassem hipocapnia e valores baixos de bicarbonato e excesso de bases, quando comparamos aos das outras espécies aviárias, os dados são similares. Embora o equipamento seja aprovado somente para espécie humana, foi considerado prático e útil na análise do sangue de aves. Utilizando este equipamento, fomos capazes de estabelecer dados de referência do status ácido-básico e eletrólitos de papagaios não anestesiados.

    Full Text Available Abstract Background This study was performed to determine if a chemotherapy-induced apoptosis assay (MiCK could predict the best therapy for patients with ovarian cancer. Methods A prospective, multi-institutional and blinded trial of the assay was conducted in 104 evaluable ovarian cancer patients treated with chemotherapy. The MiCK assay was performed prior to therapy, but treating physicians were not told of the results and selected treatment only on clinical criteria. Outcomes (response, time to relapse, and survival were compared to the drug-induced apoptosis observed in the assay. Results Overall survival in primary therapy, chemotherapy naïve patients with Stage III or IV disease was longer if patients received a chemotherapy which was best in the MiCK assay, compared to shorter survival in patients who received a chemotherapy that was not the best. (p  Conclusion The MiCK assay can predict the chemotherapy associated with better outcomes in ovarian cancer patients. This study quantifies outcome benefits on which a prospective randomized trial can be developed.

    The porous framework [Cu2(H2O)2L]⋅4 H2O⋅2 DMA (H4L = oxalylbis(azanediyl)diisophthalic acid; DMA = N,N-dimethylacetamide), denoted NOTT-125, is formed by connection of {Cu2(RCOO)4} paddlewheels with the isophthalate linkers in L(4-). A single crystal structure determination reveals that NOTT-125 crystallises in monoclinic unit cell with a = 27.9161(6), b = 18.6627(4) and c = 32.3643(8) Å, β = 112.655(3)°, space group P2(1)/c. The structure of this material shows fof topology, which can be viewed as the packing of two types of cages (cage A and cage B) in three-dimensional space. Cage A is constructed from twelve {Cu2(OOCR)4} paddlewheels and six linkers to form an ellipsoid-shaped cavity approximately 24.0 Å along its long axis and 9.6 Å across its central diameter. Cage B consists of six {Cu2(OOCR)4} units and twelve linkers and has a spherical diameter of 12.7 Å taking into account the van der Waals radii of the atoms. NOTT-125 incorporates oxamide functionality within the pore walls, and this, combined with high porosity in desolvated NOTT-125a, is responsible for excellent CO2 uptake (40.1 wt % at 273 K and 1 bar) and selectivity for CO2 over CH4 or N2. Grand canonical Monte Carlo (GCMC) simulations show excellent agreement with the experimental gas isotherm data, and a computational study of the specific interactions and binding energies of both CO2 and CH4 with the linkers in NOTT-125 reveals a set of strong interactions between CO2 and the oxamide motif that are not possible with a single amide.

    To improve the results in the treatment of adult acute lymphoblastic leukemia patients, different strategies have been proposed. The intensification could concern the induction and early consolidation phases, the conditioning regimen before allogeneic bone marrow transplantation (alloBMT), or both. We analyzed 2 consecutive trials for adult patients in first remission and with the same prognostic features. The Leucemie Aigue Lymphoblastique Paris-Ouest-France (LALPOF) protocol proposed alloBMT with standard conditioning after a classic induction and intensified consolidation scheme; the Groupe Ouest Est des Leucemies Aigues Lymphoblastiques (GOLEAL1) protocol tested an intensified induction and consolidation course before alloBMT with a reinforced conditioning regimen. The 4-year survival rates after alloBMT for LALPOF and GOELAL1 were, respectively, 71% +/- 12% and 36% +/- 13% ( P = .009). The 4-year disease-free survival reached 75% +/- 11% in the LALPOF study and 69% +/- 13% in the GOELAL1 study ( P = .30). The toxic death rate was significantly lower in the LALPOF (2/18) than in the GOELAL1 (6/15) group. Event-free survival at 4 years was significantly higher in LALPOF than in GOELAL1: 66% +/- 11% and 35% +/- 11%, respectively ( P = .02). For adult acute lymphoblastic leukemia patients in first remission, the intensification of chemotherapy before a reinforced conditioning regimen before alloBMT may lead to an increased toxic death rate.

    Full Text Available FUNDAMENTOS: Pacientes portadores de dermatite atópica apresentam freqüentemente níveis séricos elevados de IgE, e o prurido é uma das manifestações cardinais da doença. OBJETIVOS: Descrever as características do prurido nos pacientes com dermatite atópica (DA e correlacionar a gravidade do eczema com os níveis plasmáticos de imunoglobulina E (IgE. MÉTODOS: Os pacientes com dermatite atópica atendidos no Serviço de Dermatologia do Hospital de Clínicas de Porto Alegre e nos Serviços de Pediatria e Dermatologia da Universidade Luterana do Brasil responderam a um questionário sobre sintomas da dermatite atópica e deles foi coletado sangue para dosagem da IgE sérica. A gravidade da dermatose foi calculada conforme critérios sugeridos por Rajka et al. Os dados foram analisados no programa SPSS. RESULTADOS: Oitenta e nove pacientes completaram o estudo. A média de idade foi de 9,6 ± 9 anos, e 51% dos pacientes eram do sexo feminino. Quando analisada a freqüência de prurido de acordo com a gravidade do quadro clínico, foi encontrada uma relação significativa (p = 0,003. Os pacientes com quadro leve de dermatite atópica tinham coceira diária em 45% dos casos; aqueles com quadro grave tinham 90,9% de sintomas diários; e apenas 4,5% tinham mais de sete dias de intervalo entre os episódios de coceira. A mediana dos níveis de IgE sérica foi de 347UIml. As medianas da IgE sérica nos pacientes com eczema leve, moderado e grave foram 279UIml, 347UI/ml e 952UI/ml, respectivamente (p = 0,699. Pacientes do sexo feminino apresentaram níveis de IgE menores do que os do sexo masculino (212UI/ml and 2067UI/ml, p= 0,004. CONCLUSÃO: Pacientes com quadros graves de dermatite atópica apresentam prurido mais freqüente do que aqueles com manifestações mais leves. Na avaliação dos níveis séricos de IgE em relação à gravidade da DA, apesar de os valores serem mais altos nos pacientes mais graves, não se encontrou relação estatística significativa. Pacientes do sexo masculino têm níveis séricos de IgE significativamente mais altos do que os do sexo feminino. A freqüência do prurido está relacionada com a gravidade da dermatite atópica.BACKGROUND: Atopic dermatitis patients often have high serum immunoglubulin E (IgE levels and pruritus is a major symptom of the disorder. OBJECTIVE: To describe the characteristics of pruritus in atopic dermatitis (AD patients and to correlate severity of eczema with plasma IgE levels. METHODS: Patients with atopic dermatitis seen at the Dermatology Service of Hospital de Clínicas de Porto Alegre and at the Dermatology and Pediatrics Service of Universidade Luterana do Brasil filled out a questionnaire on AD symptoms and had their blood collected for serum IgE levels. Severity of dermatitis was assessed according to criteria adopted by Rajka et al. Data were analyzed by SPSS program. RESULTS: Eighty-nine patients completed the study. The mean age was 9.6 ± 9 years and 51% were female. The relation between frequency of pruritus and severity of dermatitis was significant (p=0.003. Forty-five percent of patients with mild atopic dermatitis presented pruritus every day, 90.9% of severe patients showed daily symptoms, and only 4.5% remained symptom-free for more than seven days. The median serum IgE level was 347 UI/ml. The median serum IgE levels for mild, moderate and severe cases was 279 UI/ml, 347 UI/ml and 952UI/ml, respectively (p=0.699. Females showed significantly lower serum IgE levels when compared to males (212 UI/ml vs. 2067 UI/ml, p=0.004. CONCLUSIONS: Although IgE levels were higher in severe patients, this study did not demonstrate a trend toward greater levels in patients with severe eczema as compared with mild eczema. Males have significantly higher serum IgE levels than females.

    Full Text Available Entre os avanços da engenharia celular e biotecnologia nas últimas décadas, destaca-se a produção de anticorpos monoclonais murinos (AcMm utilizados no aprimoramento diagnóstico nas rotinas laboratoriais. A produção de fator VIII de alta pureza sempre foi o desejo e a preocupação das indústrias de hemoderivados para tratamento de pacientes portadores de hemofilia A, porém este produto inexiste no Brasil, sendo necessária sua obtenção no mercado internacional a custos elevados. O trabalho tem por objetivo a produção de AcMm anti-fator VIII humano (FVIII H através da expansão dos clones e caracterização imunoquímica do anticorpo. Camundongos Balb/c foram imunizados com FVIII H purificado como também proveniente de crioprecipitado e as células esplênicas dos animais foram fusionadas com células mielomatosas murinas segundo o método descrito por Kohler e Milstein para produção de híbridos em cultura. Foram testados 1.983 híbridos dos quais 105 foram submetidos à clonagem. Destes, 39 obtiveram monoclonalidade e 7 destes clones foram caracterizados através de técnicas de immunoblotting. Foram submetidas à purificação por cromatografia três imunoglobulinas de diferentes classes pertencentes aos clones LAMB1-10A1A4, LAMB1-17A1A1 e LAMB1-24A2A1. A imunoglobulina purificada pertencente ao clone LAMB1-10A1A4 foi adsorvida em coluna de imunoafinidade para purificação de concentrado de FVIII proveniente de crioprecipitado plasmático.Among the advances in cellular engineering and biotechnology over the last decades, the production of murine monoclonal antibodies (AcMm, used to improve laboratory diagnoses, stands out. The production of very pure factor VIII has always been a concern of suppliers of blood products to treat patients with hemophilia A and this product is still not produced in Brazil. Hence, it can only be attained on the international market at a high cost. The aim of this work was to produce AcMm anti-factor VIII human (FVIIIh by expanding clones and characterizing the antibodies by immunochemistry. Balb/c mice were immunized with FVIII both purified and from cryoprecipitation and the splenic cells of the animals were fused with myelomatous murine cells according to the method described by Kohler and Milstein to produce hybrids in a culture. A total of 1983 hybrids were tested and 105 were selected for cloning. Of these, 39 developed monoclonality and 7 of these clones were characterized through immunoblotting techniques. Three immunoglobulins from different classes, LAMB1-10A1A4, LAMB1-17A1A1 and LAMB1-24A2A1, were submitted to chromatography for purification. The purified immunoglobulin from the LAMB1-10A1A4 clone was adsorbed in the immunoaffinity column to purify the factor VIII concentrate coming from the plasmatic cryoprecipitate.

    A echocardiography and a MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) investigation were achieved at 3 months to 7 years after heart transplant in 61 patients among whose 35 were suspected of rejection and 32 have had a myocardial biopsy. The myocardial (T{sub 2}) transversal relaxation time was determined by using an inversion-recovery/spin-echo upon a magnet of 0.5 T. The rejection diagnosis criteria by echography was compared with that of a anomalistic high value of T{sub 2}: 1. the MRI was positive but the echography not in 5 cases, all having positive biopsies; 2. the echography was positive but the MRI was not in 10 cases among which all the biopsies were negative; 3. the MRI and the echography gave concordant results in 46 cases (7 positives and 39 negatives) among which an agreement with the biopsy results was observed in 91% (20/22) of cases. The 12 patients having a positive MRI have had a new examination at 2 to 15 days after the anti-rejection treatment; the T{sub 2} values got normalized. In conclusion, the determination of the myocardial T{sub 2} by means of a `black blood` MRI sequence appears to be superior to an echocardiography in detecting the rejections after heart transplant and could be utilised to evaluate the efficiency of anti-rejection treatment

    Full Text Available The use of gluconeogenic supplements for dairy cows during the transition period has produced contradictory responses in the literature, making it difficult to recommend them. The objective of this trial was to evaluate supplementation with propylene glycol (PG, calcium propionate (CP, and "Dairy Power Drench®" (DR on the transitional period of Holstein cows. Parameters studied were variation of body condition score (BCS, body weight (BW, milk production (MP, reproductive efficiency and nonesterified fatty acid concentration (NEFA. One hundred and sixty five animals from two commercial herds were used. Treatments consisted of: C- Control; DR- administration of "Dairy Power Drench®" (3 applications during postpartum; CP- daily administration of calcium propionate (500 g; PG- daily administration of propylene glycol (500 mL. Variation sources studied were the effect of treatments and blocks as function of farm and parity. No interaction between time (weeks and treatments, or treatment effects, were found for BCS. However, there was a quadratic effect of time. Body weight and its variation were not affected by treatment nor by the time × treatment interaction. However, a quadratic effect of time was observed. An interaction time × treatment was observed on MP, but possible differences within each week were not detected. Treatments also did not affect reproductive efficiency parameters. On average, the number of days to first detected postpartum estrus was 69.5, with 2.23 services per conception and 172.6 days open. The mean concentration of nonesterified fatty acids was 376.6 mmol L-1 and no effect of the interaction time × treatment, or of treatment, was observed. However, a linear effect was observed with time, with a decrease of 48.2 mmol L-1 per week.O uso de produtos gliconeogênicos para vacas leiteiras no período de transição tem gerado respostas contraditórias na literatura, dificultando a sua recomendação. O objetivo deste experimento foi avaliar a suplementação de propileno glicol (PG, propionato de cálcio (PC e "Dairy Power Drench®" (DR no período de transição de vacas leiteiras sobre a variação do escore da condição corporal (ECC, peso vivo (PV, produção de leite (PL, eficiência reprodutiva e concentração plasmática dos ácidos graxos livres (AGL. Foram utilizadas 165 fêmeas de dois rebanhos comerciais. Os tratamentos foram: C- Controle; DR- 3 aplicações de "Dairy Power Drench®" no pós-parto; PC- 500 g diários de PC e PG- 500 mL diários de PG, até o 50º dia pós-parto, em média. As causas de variação estudadas foram efeito de tratamento e efeito dos blocos formados em função da fazenda e do número de partos. Não foi observado efeito de interação de tempo (semanas × tratamento ou de tratamento sobre ECC. Entretanto, houve efeito quadrático de tempo. Para o PV e variação diária de PV não foi observado efeito dos tratamentos, nem interação entre tempo × tratamento. Entretanto, apresentaram efeito quadrático de tempo. Para PL, houve efeito de interação tempo × tratamento. Porém, dentro de cada semana, as possíveis diferenças não foram detectadas. Os tratamentos não afetaram os parâmetros de eficiência reprodutiva. Encontraram-se, em média, 69,5 dias para o aparecimento do primeiro cio, 2,23 serviços por concepção e 172,6 dias para o período de serviço. As concentrações médias dos AGL foram de 376,6 mmol L-1, não se observando efeitos de tempo × tratamento ou de tratamento. Porém, apresentaram efeito linear de tempo, decrescendo 48,2 mmol L-1 por semana.

A floculação (efeito processamento aumentou as digestibilidades aparentes (% no trato total da MS, MO, amido e proteína, reduziu a concentração de N-NH3 ruminal, a proporção de acetato, mas aumentou propionato. A floculação tendeu a aumentar eficência alimentar percentual e produção de proteína do leite. Inclusão de polpa não afetou a ingestão de MS e aumentou digestibilidade de fibra. Inclusão de polpa aumentou a digestibilidade do amido (% no tratamento moído grosso. Amonia ruminal e proporção de propionato não foram afetadas pela inclusão de polpa, mas houve significativo aumento de acetato. Houve interação processamento x polpa sobre concentração de glicose plasmática. Produção de leite corrigida, eficiência alimentar, percentual e produção de gordura do leite aumentaram com a inclusão de polpa.Four lactating cows were assigned to a 4x4 Latin square design with a 2x2 factorial arrangement for the following treatments: coarsely ground corn; steam-flaked corn; coarsely ground + citrus pulp; steam-flaked + citrus pulp. Steam-flaking grain (processing effect increased total tract digestibility (% of DM, OM, starch and protein; decreased rumen NH3-N and acetate and increased ruminal propionate. Feed efficiency, milk protein content and yield tended to be higher for flaked corn. Inclusion of citrus pulp did not affect DM intake and increased fiber digestibility. Inclusion of citrus pulp increased starch digestibility (% in the case of coarsely ground corn diet. Rumen ammonia nitrogen and molar proportion of propionate were not affected by citrus pulp; ruminal acetate, however, was significantly increased. There was an interaction between grain processing and citrus pulp on plasma glucose concentration. Fat corrected milk, feed efficiency, milk fat content and yield were increased by citrus pulp.

Os autores relatam a experiência do tratamento endovascular de uma paciente com aneurisma sacular da bifurcação da artéria renal direita, associado à hipertensão renovascular de difícil controle. Foi realizada a cateterização seletiva da artéria renal, com a inserção de micromolas no saco aneurismático. O aneurisma foi completamente ocluído com preservação total do fluxo sanguíneo renal. A evolução clínica foi satisfatória com redução significativa das medicações anti-hipertensivas. A angio-tomografia de controle, após o oitavo mês do procedimento, confirmou o sucesso do tratamento.Endovascular treatment of renal artery aneurysmal disease has been increasingly accepted as an alternative to conventional surgery, especially in cases of renal artery bifurcation or complex intrarenal aneurysms. The authors report a case of endovascular treatment of a saccular aneurysm of the right renal artery bifurcation associated with poorly controlled renovascular hypertension. Selective catheterization of the renal artery was performed and microcoils were inserted into the aneurysmal sac. The aneurysm was completely obliterated with total preservation of renal blood flow. Clinical evolution was satisfactory with significant reduction in anti-hypertensive drugs. Control tomographic angiography, after eight months, confirmed treatment success.

Foram utilizadas quarenta coelhas da raça Nova Zelândia Branca, em um delineamento inteiramente casualizado, com 4 tratamentos e 10 repetições. As coelhas foram cobertas aos 150 dias de idade. Aos 43, 80, 150, 184 e 225 dias, foram realizadas as coletas de sangue por punção cardíaca. Os níveis plasmáticos de glicose, triglicerídeos, colesterol total e uréia não foram alterados pelos níveis de substituição do farelo de soja pelo farelo de canola. No entanto, houve efeito quadrático em relação à idade dos animais. Os níveis no soro sanguíneo de estradiol, progesterona, insulina, T3 e T4 não apresentaram efeito de tratamento. Os níveis de progesterona e T4 apresentaram efeito quadrático em relação à idade das coelhas. As variações encontradas em função da idade dos animais poderiam ser atribuídas às variações ambientais ou fisiológicas durante o período de realização do experimento.Possible changes in plasma levels of glucose, triglycerides, total cholesterol, urea, serum levels of estradiol, progesterone, insulin, T3 and T4 in female rabbits are evaluated. Rabbits were fed on soybean meal in a gradual substitution (00%, 33%, 66% and 100% by canola meal. Rabbits aged 43 to 225 days, on completing first pregnancy and lactation. Forty White New Zealand rabbits female were used in a completely randomized design, with four treatments and 10 replications. At 43, 80, 150, 184 and 225 days old the animals underwent heart puncture for blood collection. Females were mated at 150 days. Levels of glucose plasma, triglycerides, total cholesterol and urea failed to show any significant variations with regard to treatment. However, a quadratic effect was reported with regard to time. There was no significant change in serum levels of estradiol (E2, progesterone, insulin, T3 and T4 attributed to treatment. Progesterone and T4 showed a quadratic behavior with regard to time. Feeding did not interfere in parameters. Changes recorded might be attributed to environmental and/or physiological variations experimented by animals during the period.

    Purpose: Different multichannel methods for film dosimetry have been proposed in the literature. Two of them are the weighted mean method and the method put forth by Micke et al and Mayer et al. The purpose of this work was to compare their results and to develop a generalized channel-independent perturbations framework in which both methods enter as special cases. Methods: Four models of channel-independent perturbations were compared: weighted mean, Micke-Mayer method, uniform distribution and truncated normal distribution. A closed-form formula to calculate film doses and the associated Type B uncertainty for all four models was deduced. To evaluate the models, film dose distributions were compared with planned and measured dose distributions. At the same time, several elements of the dosimetry process were compared: film type EBT2 versus EBT3, different waiting-time windows, reflection mode versus transmission mode scanning, and planned versus measured dose distribution for film calibration and for gamma-...

    The aims of this paper are to carry out a new implementation of the multichannel radiochromic film dosimetry (Micke A, Lewis D, Yu X. Multichannel film dosimetry with nonuniformity correction. Med Phys 2011;38:2523-34), to quantify the variation in gamma index as compared to the single channel film dosimetry, and to determine if the procedure achieves similar results by means of a different scanner that the one used by Micke et al. Radiochromic EBT2 films and a Microtek 9000 XL scanner were used. Our procedure simplifies the system calibration splitting it into two factors, manufactured batch and digitalization specific. Absorbed dose spatial distributions from an open radiotherapy beam without any modulation and 20 IMRT treatments were determined. Their gamma index maps were calculated and a comparison of the results from single channel and multichannel dosimetry was performed. A 5% mean increase in concordance was obtained by using the multichannel film dosimetry. Our results are similar to those reported by Micke et al. even though we are using a different scanner.

  19. Enhanced CO2 Adsorption Affinity in a NbO-type MOF Constructed from a Low-Cost Diisophthalate Ligand with a Piperazine-Ring Bridge.

    2015-09-01

    A metal-organic framework (NPC-6) with an NbO topology based on a piperazine ring-bridged diisophthalate ligand was synthesized and characterized. The incorporated piperazine group leads to an enhanced adsorption affinity for CO2 in NPC-6, in which the CO2 uptake is 4.83 mmol g(-1) at 293 K and 1 bar, ranking among the top values of CO2 uptake on MOF materials. At 0.15 bar and 293 K, the NPC-6 adsorbs 1.07 mmol g(-1) of CO2 , which is about 55.1 % higher than that of the analogue MOF NOTT-101 under the same conditions. The enhanced CO2 uptake combined with comparable uptakes for CH4 and N2 leads to much higher selectivities for CO2 /CH4 and CO2 /N2 gas mixtures on NPC-6 than on NOTT-101. Furthermore, an N-alkylation is used in the synthesis of the PDIA ligand, leading to a much lower cost compared with that in the synthesis of ligands in the NOTT series, as the former does not require a palladium-based catalyst and borate esters. Thus, we conclude that NPC-6 is a promising candidate for CO2 capture applications. © 2015 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim.

    Full Text Available Nel 2001 e 2002 in provincia di Gorizia (loc. Isola della Cona, Riserva Naturale Regionale Foce dell?Isonzo due giovani maschi di volpe sono stati marcati con radiocollari, al fine di raccogliere dati sulla loro dispersione. L?area di studio, di circa 20 km², presenta zone boscose, boscaglie golenali, prati umidi, canneti e barene, inserite, comunque, in un territorio soggetto ad agricoltura intensiva. Gli animali sono stati seguiti per 12 ore/notte nella prima fase e successivamente per 12 ore/settimana, suddivise in 3 turni tali da coprire l?intero arco della notte. La posizione è stata rilevata ogni 20 min. Il primo individuo (M1 è stato seguito dal 15.11.01 al 10.12.01 per 140 ore; il secondo (M2 dal 14.06.02 al 22.03.03 per 580 ore; la dispersione è iniziata il 17.11.01 per M1 e il 10.11.02 per M2. Entrambi hanno attraversato il fiume Isonzo, in un tratto ampio 145 m, in direzione Sud/Est, raggiungendo una zona agricola. In seguito non hanno mostrato la tendenza a tornare indietro, probabilmente a causa della presenza di un maschio territoriale. Durante il giorno non si sono verificati spostamenti apprezzabili. La massima area coperta per notte (metodo del Minimo Poligono Convesso è stata di 10,7 km² per M1 (settima notte e di 5,1 km² per M2 (diciassettesima notte. I punti più distanti raggiunti in linea d?aria rispetto a quello di attraversamento del fiume sono stati di 9,2 km per M1 e di 9,9 km per M2. La direzione e alcune delle traiettorie percorse sono risultate sovrapponibili per i due individui. Le convergenze di eventi che emergono dai risultati, raccolti a distanza di un anno, suggeriscono una certa obbligatorietà nei percorsi che potrebbe essere dovuta sia alla struttura territoriale che alla densità della popolazione di volpi (stimata tramite conteggio delle tane attive in 10-12 individui in periodo primaverile e in 27-30 individui in periodo autunnale. Si ipotizza una certa stabilità dei territori degli individui

Stimulation of alpha2-adrenoceptors may determine pro and anti-platelet aggregation effects through direct and indirect mechanisms. This study aimed at determining the effects of dexmedetomidine on coagulation evaluated by thromboelastography. METHODS: Twenty four patients were randomly distributed in 3 groups: Group 1 patients received saline solution (control group, Group 2 patients received 1 µg.kg-1 dexmedetomidine in 10 minutes, followed by 0.4 µg.kg-1.h-1 infusion for 20 minutes and Group 3 patients received 0.05 mg.kg-1 midazolam. Sedated patients maintained scores 3 or 4 in Ramsay’s sedation scale. Blood samples were collected before and 30 minutes after the treatment for thromboelastography. RESULTS: Dexmedetomidine has significantly increased reaction time (parameter R and decreased coagulation index in final curves as compared to initial ones. Values, however, have remained within ranges accepted as normal. This phenomenon was not observed in remaining groups. CONCLUSIONS: Dexmedetomidine pro and anti-platelet aggregation mechanisms interaction determines mild hypocoagulation, however maintaining coagulation within normal ranges. Dexmedetomidine effects on coagulation are probably not mediated by anxiolysis, since sedation was equivalent to the midazolam group.

    Full Text Available Sang er en åpenbar kilde til læring av fremmedspråk. Læreplaner for engelskfaget opp gjennom tidene har påpekt dette, og læreverkene i engelsk inneholder mange sanger. Men nøyaktig hva er det sang kan bidra med? Hva slags sanger er tatt med i bøkene, og hvilke målsettinger ser ut til å være knyttet til dem? Artikkelen besvarer disse spørsmålene ved å vise til læreplaner og utvalgte lærebøker fra perioden 1885 – 2008 og hvordan de legger opp til at sang skal brukes som en del av opplæringen i engelsk. Undersøkelsen er begrenset til ungdomstrinnet. Innledningsvis refererer artikkelen til ulike begrunnelser for bruk av sang i fremmedspråkopplæringen. Når sang nevnes i læreplanene eller innlemmes i lærebøkene, reflekteres enkelte av disse begrunnelsene. Samtidig er det påfallende hvor ofte planer og bøker ikke begrunner bruken av sang eller setter sangene inn i en didaktisk sammenheng. Artikkelen konkluderer derfor med at sanger ser ut til å representere et stort, men delvis uutnyttet potensial i engelskopplæringen på ungdomstrinnet.

  19. Demographic and fertility characteristics of 4 squatter settlements.

    1985-01-01

    The demographic and fertility profiles of 4 squatter areas, 2 with Sang Kancil, a community development project designed specifically for squatter settlements in Kuala Lumpur, are described. Data were taken from a census conducted in 1982. Figure 1 maps out the location of the study areas in the Federal Territory. The squatter household (5.4 members) varied little from the average Malaysian household. The average age of the male head of household was 40 years, i.e., not within the high fertility group; the mean duration of stay was 10 years. Household income/month averaged M$760, falling between estimates for urban and rural mean. Comparing the data on the 2 squatter areas, the non-Sang Kancil head of household was, on average, slightly older and had stayed about 2 years longer than his Sang Kancil counterpart. These differences were statistically significant. Both areas were comparable with regard to household income and size. Ethnically, the Sang Kancil areas were predominantly Malay, comprising 86% of total households. The control areas had a more mixed ethnic structure. From 1978-81, annual increases in total population had been fairly uniform, at around 2%, in non-Sang Kancil Areas. Yet, the Sang Kancil population experienced a growth spurt in 1980, which subsequently declined and appeared to level off. 1982 figures were disregarded in this analysis as they were based on a 1/2 year enumeration only. The age distribution pattern of all squatter areas combined was fairly similar to the national distribution pyramid but for a higher proportion of people in the 15-44 age group than national figures. The proportion of dependents, 0-14 years, was comparable despite having more people in this fertile age group. The proportion of infants (0-11 months) in the control population was constant, but there was a decline down to control values by the end of the surveyed period in the Sang Kancil group. In the toddler group, decreases were evident for both populations

    The UK and international neuroendocrine community was deeply shocked and saddened the unbelievably premature death of Michael Harbuz in Bristol in 2006. Mick was a superb friend and colleague, and played a huge part in the development and activities of the British Neuroendocrine Group/British Society for Neuroendocrinology (BSN), serving as both Membership Secretary and Treasurer between 1999 and 2004. Mick was a leader in the field of neuroendocrine-immune interactions, and brought a great deal of charisma, humour and ability to meetings and conferences. He was also a passionate and committed supporter of the progress of young researchers and of their participation in neuroendocrine events. He recognised that today's postgraduate students and postdoctoral research fellows are tomorrow's neuroendocrine researchers, be it in academia, the health services or industry. To recognise Mick's great commitment to and enthusiasm for postgraduate education both in the University of Bristol and in the BSN, we decided to honour and remember him by instituting the 'Michael Harbuz Young Investigator Prize Lecture' to be delivered annually. Dr Waljit Dhillo from Imperial College London was the inaugural recipient of this award, and presented his lecture at the Annual Meeting of the BSN in Nottingham in September 2007, upon which this review is based. Recent evidence demonstrates that the neuropeptide kisspeptin and its receptor, GPR54, have a fundamental role in initiating the onset of puberty and are important in regulating reproductive function. This review discusses the evidence available from animals and humans demonstrating that kisspeptin potently stimulates the release of gonadotrophins by stimulating the release of gonadotrophin-releasing hormone and that a lack of kisspeptin or GPR54 results in reproductive failure.

  1. Mitochondrial creatine kinase activity and phosphate shuttling are acutely regulated by exercise in human skeletal muscle.

    Energy transfer between mitochondrial and cytosolic compartments is predominantly achieved by creatine-dependent phosphate shuttling (PCr/Cr) involving mitochondrial creatine kinase (miCK). However, ADP/ATP diffusion through adenine nucleotide translocase (ANT) and voltage-dependent anion carriers (VDACs) is also involved in this process. To determine if exercise alters the regulation of this system, ADP-stimulated mitochondrial respiratory kinetics were assessed in permeabilized muscle fibre bundles (PmFBs) taken from biopsies before and after 2 h of cycling exercise (60% ) in nine lean males. Concentrations of creatine (Cr) and phosphocreatine (PCr) as well as the contractile state of PmFBs were manipulated in situ. In the absence of contractile signals (relaxed PmFBs) and miCK activity (no Cr), post-exercise respiratory sensitivity to ADP was reduced in situ (up to 126% higher apparent K(m) to ADP) suggesting inhibition of ADP/ATP diffusion between matrix and cytosolic compartments (possibly ANT and VDACs). However this effect was masked in the presence of saturating Cr (no effect of exercise on ADP sensitivity). Given that the role of ANT is thought to be independent of Cr, these findings suggest ADP/ATP, but not PCr/Cr, cycling through the outer mitochondrial membrane (VDACs) may be attenuated in resting muscle after exercise. In contrast, in contracted PmFBs, post-exercise respiratory sensitivity to ADP increased with miCK activation (saturating Cr; 33% lower apparent K(m) to ADP), suggesting prior exercise increases miCK sensitivity in situ. These observations demonstrate that exercise increases miCK-dependent respiratory sensitivity to ADP, promoting mitochondrial-cytosolic energy exchange via PCr/Cr cycling, possibly through VDACs. This effect may mask an underlying inhibition of Cr-independent ADP/ATP diffusion. This enhanced regulation of miCK-dependent phosphate shuttling may improve energy homeostasis through more efficient coupling of oxidative

    2009-01-01

    In this paper we describe a new robotic brachytherapy needle-insertion system that is designed to replace the template used in the manual technique. After a brief review of existing robotic systems, we describe the requirements that we based our design upon. A detailed description of the proposed system follows. Our design is capable of positioning and inclining a needle within the same workspace as the manual template. To help improve accuracy, the needle can be rotated about its axis during insertion into the prostate. The system can be mounted on existing steppers and also easily accommodates existing seed dispensers, such as the Mick Applicator.

    Most chemotherapeutic drugs exert their anti-tumor effects primarily by triggering a final pathway leading to apoptosis. Noninvasive imaging of apoptotic events in preclinical models would greatly facilitate the development of apoptosis-inducing compounds and evaluation of their therapeutic efficacy. Here we employed a cyclic firefly luciferase (cFluc) reporter to screen potential pro-apoptotic compounds from a number of natural agents. We demonstrated that sanguinarine (SANG) could induce apoptosis in a dose- and time-dependent manner in UM-SCC-22B head and neck cancer cells. Moreover, SANG-induced apoptosis was associated with the generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and activation of c-Jun-N-terminal kinase (JNK) and nuclear factor-kappaB (NF-κB) signal pathways. After intravenous administration with SANG in 22B-cFluc xenograft models, a dramatic increase of luminescence signal can be detected as early as 48 h post-treatment, as revealed by longitudinal bioluminescence imaging in vivo. Remarkable apoptotic cells reflected from ex vivo TUNEL staining confirmed the imaging results. Importantly, SANG treatment caused distinct tumor growth retardation in mice compared with the vehicle-treated group. Taken together, our results showed that SANG is a candidate anti-tumor drug and noninvasive imaging of apoptosis using cFluc reporter could provide a valuable tool for drug development and therapeutic efficacy evaluation.

    It has been recently proposed that pregnant women would perform memory tasks by focusing more on item-specific processes and less on relational processing, compared to post-partum women (Mickes, Wixted, Shapiro & Scarff, ). The present cross-sectional study tested this hypothesis by directly manipulating the type of encoding employed in the study phase. Pregnant, post-partum and control women either rated the pleasantness of word meaning (which induced item-specific elaboration) or named the semantic category to which they belonged (which induced relational elaboration). Memory for the encoded words was later tested in free recall (which emphasizes relational processing) and in recognition (which emphasizes item-specific processing). In line with Mickes et al.'s () conclusions, pregnant women in the item-specific condition performed worse than post-partum women in the relational condition in free recall, but not in recognition. However, compared to the other two groups, pregnant women also exhibited lower recognition accuracy in the item-specific condition. Overall, these results confirm that pregnant women rely on relational encoding less than post-partum women, but additionally suggest that the former group might use item-specific processes less efficiently than post-partum and control women. © 2016 Scandinavian Psychological Associations and John Wiley & Sons Ltd.

    A low-mass, low-cost photon-counting scientific payload has been developed and launched on a commercial microsatellite in order to study the near-UV night-sky background emission with a telescope nicknamed 'Notte' and the Aurora emission with 'Alba'. AURORA, this is the name of the experiment, will determine, with the 'Notte' channel, the overall night-side photon background in the 300-400 nm spectral range, together with a particular 2 sup + N sub 2 line (lambda sub c =337 nm). The 'Alba' channel, on the other hand, will study the Aurora emissions in four different spectral bands (FWHM=8.4-9.6 nm) centered on: 367 nm (continuum evaluation), 391 nm (1 sup - N sup + sub 2), 535 nm (continuum evaluation), 560 nm (OI). The instrument has been launched on the 26 September, 2000 from the Baikonur cosmodrome on a modified SS18 Dnepr-1 'Satan' rocket. The satellite orbit is nearly circular (h sub a sub p sub o sub g sub e sub e =648 km, e=0.0022), and the inclination of the orbital plane is 64.56 deg. An overview of...

    The Double Chooz Experiment presents an indication of reactor electron antineutrino disappearance consistent with neutrino oscillations. A ratio of 0.944 $\\pm$ 0.016 (stat) $\\pm$ 0.040 (syst) observed to predicted events was obtained in 101 days of running at the Chooz Nuclear Power Plant in France, with two 4.25 GW$_{th}$ reactors. The results were obtained from a single 10 m$^3$ fiducial volume detector located 1050 m from the two reactor cores. The reactor antineutrino flux prediction used the Bugey4 measurement as an anchor point. The deficit can be interpreted as an indication of a non-zero value of the still unmeasured neutrino mixing parameter \\sang. Analyzing both the rate of the prompt positrons and their energy spectrum we find \\sang = 0.086 $\\pm$ 0.041 (stat) $\\pm$ 0.030 (syst), or, at 90% CL, 0.015 $<$ \\sang $\\ <$ 0.16.

    The aim of this study was to investigate the efficacy of Sangrovit(®) , a plant-derived feed additive, given throughout the nursery stage via feed at 15 ppm and 50 ppm, on the health status and performance of weaners against negative controls. In a 900-sow farrow-to-finish farm, a total of 864 piglets were divided into three groups: (i) negative controls (NC); (ii) Sang 15: same feed as NCs, plus 15 g Sangrovit(®) /t of feed; (iii) Sang 50: same feed as NCs plus 50 g Sangrovit(®) /t of feed. The results indicated that administration of 50 ppm(-) Sangrovit(®) had the most beneficial effects on growth performance in weaning pigs. Specifically there was increase of body weight and average daily gain, as well as reduction of feed conversion ratio. Blood analysis from the Sang groups and especially the Sang 50 group revealed low values of haptoglobin and serum amyloid A.

    2007-01-01

    Background Angiopoietin-2 (Ang-2) is one of the critical regulators of tumor angiogenesis. Studies have shown a significant correlation of Ang-2 expression to tumor invasion and metastasis in various human cancers, but little is known about the serum Ang-2 (sAng-2) levels in esophageal squamous cell cancer (ESCC) and its precursors. In this study, we aimed to investigate its role in screening for ESCC and its precursors.Methods We carried out a free endoscopic screening in Feicheng City, a high ESCC incidence area in Shandong Province of China. Serum samples were collected as follows: 91 from normal subjects, 44 from patients with esophagitis,85 from patients with hyperplasia, and 13 from patients with early ESCC. In addition, 28 serum samples were obtained from patients with invasive ESCC undergoing surgery in People's Hospital of Feicheng City. All the subjects of the five groups were diagnosed by histopathology. The sAng-2 levels were tested and compared, and the diagnostic power in early or/and invasive ESCC was calculated in terms of sensitivity and other parameters.Results The sAng-2 levels were (22.0±5.5), (21.3±3.2), (20.5±3.3), (24.0±5.0), and (29.8±5.0) U/ml in normal,esophagitis, hyperplasia, early ESCC, and invasive ESCC groups respectively. It was significantly higher in early ESCC than inhyperplasia group (P=0.009). The invasive ESCC group showed the highest Ang-2 level among all groups (all P=0.000). The sensitivities of sAng-2 to early and invasive ESCC were 23.1% and 78.6% respectively.Conclusion sAng-2 level is related to carcinogenesis and progression of ESCC, but it can not be used to screen for early ESCC.

    A facile and universal method was developed to evaluate the relative water stability of porous MOFs and morphological evolution was achieved by controlling the volume ratio of DMF and H2O. The relative water stability of the studied MOFs is in the order HKUST-1 > MOF-505 ∼ UMCM-150 > NOTT-101 > DUT-23(Cu) > [Zn2(BPnDC)2(DABCO)] ∼ [Cu3(TPTrC)2(DABCO)] > MOF-5. In addition, DUT-23(Cu) [Cu6(BTB)4(BPY)3] (H3BTB = 4,4',4''-benzene-1,3,5-triyl-tribenzoic acid, BPY = 4,4'-bipyridine) nanoparticles obtained with a volume ratio of DMF and H2O of 18 : 2 show excellent adsorption capacity for methylene blue (MB) (814 mg g(-1)) with high selectivity compared with methyl orange, rhodamine B, and acid chrome blue K dyes due to the size and the electrostatic repulsion effects in aqueous solution.

  6. “What Can Hume Teach Us about Film Evaluation?”

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Robert R. Clewis

    2014-11-01

    Full Text Available This article identifies three distinct temporal notions in Hume’s aesthetics: passing the test of time, repeated viewing of a work, and the personal aging of the critic. It applies these ideas to the evaluation and enjoyment of films. It characterizes positive, negative, and ambivalent film aging, which are associated with nostalgia, boredom, and comic amusement, respectively, and which bear on our enjoyment, not evaluation, of film. The paper discusses Allen’s Zelig, Antonioni’s La Notte, Cameron’s The Terminator, Lucas’s Star Wars, Scorsese’s Taxi Driver, Spielberg’s E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial, and Renoir’s La Règle du Jeu.

    The present article proposes to show a reflection in the nurse's formation on the point of view of educators, philosophers and contemporary researchers. Moacir Gadotti, Edgar Morin e Philippe Perrenoud's theories and reflections were used, as well as the four pillars of the contemporary education, presented in the Delors Account. The adoption of tools like learning to know, learning to do, learning to be and learning to live together as well as the competences abording, are indispensable devices in the formation of professionals in the modern world. It is believed that in incorporating these new dimensions to the nurse's formation, it will be possible to untie the notts that are to be overcome in the conformation of critic nursing professionals, competent and agents of social transformation.

Métodos: Se determinó la reproducibilidad entre los evaluadores y entre los métodos por medio del coeficiente de correlación intraclase (CCI y se establecieron los límites de acuerdo de Bland y Altman. Resultados: Se evaluaron 126 personas entre 5 y 39 años y se encontró una baja reproducibilidad interexaminador de la retinoscopia dinámica monocular en ambos ojos CCI ojo derecho: 0.49 (IC95% 0.36; 0.51; ojo izquierdo 0.51 (IC95% 0.38; 0.59. El límite de acuerdo entre evaluadores fue ±1.25 D. Al evaluar la reproducibilidad entre la retinoscopia dinámica monocular y la estática se observó que la mayor reproducibilidad se obtuvo con la estática binocular y monocular y, en visión próxima, entre el método estimado monocular y la retinoscopia de Nott. Conclusiones: La retinoscopia dinámica monocular no es una prueba reproducible y presenta diferencias clínicas significativas para determinar el estado refractivo, en cuanto a poder dióptrico y tipo de ametropía, por tanto, no se puede considerar dentro de la batería de exámenes aplicados para determinar diagnósticos y correcciones refractivas tanto en la visión lejana como en la visión próxima.

    Full Text Available Antonio Tabucchi è uno scrittore insonne, solleticato dalla notte e dalle ombre, attirato da spirali frammentate di immagini, sogni, viaggi e persone, il nostro percorso tende ad indicare una possibile chiave di lettura di quest’autore con l’ausilio di due temi: mistero e notte. Tabucchi ha un senso innato del tempo che è nascosto dentro le cose; degli eventi che tornano e si ripetono; e della parola ultima, che deve chiudere il racconto, gettando ogni cosa nel nulla. Ma è anche un narratore moderno, sa che nelle cose e nei pensieri, c’è un vuoto, un’assenza. Scrivere un racconto per lui significa esprimere questo vuoto senza colmarlo mai. Per questo in tutto quello che Tabucchi narra, c’è un’omissione, o una rete di omissioni, che getta una luce enigmatica sull’apparente pienezza degli eventi. Emblematico ed esplicativo per la nostra ricerca è Notturno indiano, che a nostro avviso, è uno dei testi più riusciti di Tabucchi. È la storia di una ricerca, e più esattamente della ricerca di sé. Ma, anche, la rivelazione di una condizione di estranietà da se stesso, alla scoperta di un altro sé, sparso nei territori dell'inappartenenza. Non è un caso che questo Notturno vaghi alla ricerca di un "Ombra", soprattutto se si pensa al valore simbolico che l'ombra riveste in tanta letteratura. Come suggerisce Rankè il nostro doppio, ma soprattutto la nostra anima, quella matassa di fili che misteriosi ed enigmatici si intrecciano confondendoci e, che pur cercando di dipanare, resteranno sempre le mille facce di una stessa medaglia.

  12. Non-Interpenetrated Metal-Organic Frameworks Based on Copper(II) Paddlewheel and Oligoparaxylene-Isophthalate Linkers: Synthesis, Structure, and Gas Adsorption.

    Two metal-organic framework materials, MFM-130 and MFM-131 (MFM = Manchester Framework Material), have been synthesized using two oligoparaxylene (OPX) tetracarboxylate linkers containing four and five aromatic rings, respectively. Both fof-type non-interpenetrated networks contain Kagomé lattice layers comprising [Cu2(COO)4] paddlewheel units and isophthalates, which are pillared by the OPX linkers. Desolvated MFM-130, MFM-130a, shows permanent porosity (BET surface area of 2173 m(2)/g, pore volume of 1.0 cm(3)/g), high H2 storage capacity at 77 K (5.3 wt% at 20 bar and 2.2 wt% at 1 bar), and a higher CH4 adsorption uptake (163 cm(3)(STP)/cm(3) (35 bar and 298 K)) compared with its structural analogue, NOTT-103. MFM-130a also shows impressive selective adsorption of C2H2, C2H4, and C2H6 over CH4 at room temperature, indicating its potential for separation of C2 hydrocarbons from CH4. The single-crystal structure of MFM-131 confirms that the methyl substituents of the paraxylene units block the windows in the Kagomé lattice layer of the framework, effectively inhibiting network interpenetration in MFM-131. This situation is to be contrasted with that of the doubly interpenetrated oligophenylene analogue, NOTT-104. Calculation of the mechanical properties of these two MOFs confirms and explains the instability of MFM-131 upon desolvation in contrast to the behavior of MFM-130. The incorporation of paraxylene units, therefore, provides an efficient method for preventing network interpenetration as well as accessing new functional materials with modified and selective sorption properties for gas substrates.

    2016-11-01

    This study investigates the impact of a weekly group providing sport and physical activities for men with early onset dementia established by Notts County Football in the Community (NCFC). There were three aims: to investigate the effect of early onset dementia on individuals with the condition and their carers; to examine the perceptions of current levels of service provision for people with early onset dementia; and to analyse the impact of the group. Men with dementia (n = 5) attending the sessions, their carers (n = 5), NCFC coaching staff (n = 5) and people organizing/facilitating the sessions (n = 5) were interviewed. Semi-structured interviews explored the participants' experiences of dementia, their opinions on current service provisions and on the sessions. Data were analysed using thematic analysis. Four main themes were found: loss related to the condition of dementia and its impact on relationships ('Loss'); lack of age-appropriate services for people with early onset dementia ('Lack of Resources'); enjoyment and positive anticipation related to the group for all involved ('Enjoyment and Anticipation'); and 'the Notts County Effect' which attributed the success of the sessions to the strong brand of the football club, and to personalized service in a "dementia-free" environment. The NCFC sessions provided a safe low-cost intervention with positive effects upon quality of life for both people with early onset dementia, their carers and the staff involved. This suggests that the service may be valuable to a wider range of people living in different areas.

It uses a case study of Veshya Anyay Mukti Parishad (VAMP, a sex workers collective in Sangli, India, to explore the impact of anti-trafficking efforts on HIV prevention programmes. The paper begins with an overview of the anti-trafficking movement emerging out of the United States. This U.S. based anti- trafficking movement works in partnership with domestic Indian anti- trafficking organisations to raid brothels to “rescue and rehabilitate” sex workers. Contrary to the purported goal of assisting women, the anti-trafficking projects that employ a raid, rescue, and rehabilitate model often undermine HIV projects at the local level, in turn causing harm to women and girls. We examine the experience of one peer educator in Sangli to demonstrate and highlight some of the negative consequences of these anti-trafficking efforts on HIV prevention programmes.

  6. Absolute memory for musical pitch: evidence from the production of learned melodies.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Levitin, D J

    1994-10-01

    Evidence for the absolute nature of long-term auditory memory is provided by analyzing the production of familiar melodies. Additionally, a two-component theory of absolute pitch is presented, in which this rare ability is conceived as consisting of a more common ability, pitch memory, and a separate, less common ability, pitch labeling. Forty-six subjects sang two different popular songs, and their productions were compared with the actual pitches used in recordings of those songs. Forty percent of the subjects sang the correct pitch on at least one trial; 12% of the subjects hit the correct pitch on both trials, and 44% came within two semitones of the correct pitch on both trials. The results show a convergence with previous studies on the stability of auditory imagery and latent absolute pitch ability; the results further suggest that individuals might possess representations of pitch that are more stable and accurate than previously recognized.

    Old Comedy was a musical experience of great variety. Accompanied by the piper, both choruses and actors sang frequently during the performance. Music in Old comedy reflects to some extend the importance of music in Athenian everyday life, but as Greek Comedy evolved and detached it self more...... and more from the everyday topics, music similarly lost part of its importance within the plays themselves....

  5. The association between singing and/or playing a musical instrument and cognitive functions in older adults.

    2017-05-19

    Cognitive decline happens to everyone when aging, but to some more than others. Studies with children, adults, and professional musicians suggest that making music could be associated with better cognitive functioning. In older adults however, this association is less well investigated, which is therefore the aim of this study. In this cross-sectional study data from 1101 participants aged 64 and older from the Longitudinal Aging Study Amsterdam were used. Multivariable linear regression analyses were performed to test the association between making music and cognitive functioning and time spent making music and cognitive functioning. ANCOVA analyses were performed to differentiate between participants who made no music, only sang, only played an instrument or both sang and played an instrument in terms of cognitive functioning. Making music was significantly positively associated with letter fluency, learning and attention/short-term memory. Time spent making music yielded no significant results. The ANCOVA analyses showed higher scores for participants who only played an instrument compared to participants who made no music on learning, working memory and processing speed. For processing speed the instrument only group also had a higher score than participants who only sang. Making music at least once every two weeks and especially playing a musical instrument, is associated with better attention, episodic memory and executive functions. The results suggest that making music might be a potential protective factor for cognitive decline; however, to support this notion a longitudinal study design is needed.

  6. Improvement of gougerotin and nikkomycin production by engineering their biosynthetic gene clusters.

    Du, Deyao; Zhu, Yu; Wei, Junhong; Tian, Yuqing; Niu, Guoqing; Tan, Huarong

    2013-07-01

    Nikkomycins and gougerotin are peptidyl nucleoside antibiotics with broad biological activities. The nikkomycin biosynthetic gene cluster comprises one pathway-specific regulatory gene (sanG) and 21 structural genes, whereas the gene cluster for gougerotin biosynthesis includes one putative regulatory gene, one major facilitator superfamily transporter gene, and 13 structural genes. In the present study, we introduced sanG driven by six different promoters into Streptomyces ansochromogenes TH322. Nikkomycin production was increased significantly with the highest increase in engineered strain harboring hrdB promoter-driven sanG. In the meantime, we replaced the native promoter of key structural genes in the gougerotin (gou) gene cluster with the hrdB promoters. The heterologous producer Streptomyces coelicolor M1146 harboring the modified gene cluster produced gougerotin up to 10-fold more than strains carrying the unmodified cluster. Therefore, genetic manipulations of genes involved in antibiotics biosynthesis with the constitutive hrdB promoter present a robust, easy-to-use system generally useful for the improvement of antibiotics production in Streptomyces.

  7. Inheritance of Gelatinization Temperature and Gel Consistency in Rice (Oryza sativa L.)

    Kiani; Sh.; Ranjbar, G. A.; Kazemitabar, S. K.; Jelodar, N. B.; Nowrozi, M.; Bagheri, N.

    Gelatinization Temperature (GT) and Gel Consistency (GC) are important traits in determination of rice quality. In present study four rice cultivars namely Sang-e-Tarrom, Gerdeh, IR229 and IRRI2 have been utilized in hybridization as parents. In order to know about genetic characteristics and inheritance of the related traits, direct and reciprocal crosses have been conducted between parents Sang-e-Tarrom and Gerdeh and between IR229 and IRRI2. Inheritance of related traits have been studied in direct and reciprocal hybridizations for hard, intermediate and soft GC, low and high GT. For these evaluations P1, P2, F1, F2, BC1, BC2 generations and their reciprocal crosses have been utilized in present study. Results showed that gene hard GC dominates on intermediate and soft and also intermediate GT dominates on low. From direct and reciprocal crosses Gerdeh x Sang-e-Tarrom and IR229 x IRRI2 have been illustrated that GC and GT expressions are under monogenic control of one major gene corresponding with several modifier genes. Gene dosage effects play a tremendously important and effective role in segregation production among traits. Regarding to the obtained results selections can effectively be performed in later segregation generations for GC and in early generations for GT.

    Full Text Available The recent death of David Bowie activated a memorial process which incites to retrace the cultural, social, aesthetic, of costume, fashion and art history of the last forty years. It’s impossible, therefore, not reflect on the mechanisms that led to the creation of he who in the collective imaginary is reductive to consider just a symbol of modern rock.Several books, prestigious magazines and important exhibitions devoted space to the infinite nuances of he who is defined not only icon but also idol, star, legend and myth. These terms have subtle interferences between them as Jean Jacques Wunenburger underlined and all refer to the concept of Mythology. Even if many authors stated the “disappearance of the myth” in the postmodern epoch (Jewett and Lawrence, the myth is one of those phenomena which involves the everyday life, also in the contemporary time.Certainly the ever closer relations between art, mass media and advertisement played a decisive role in restructuring the concept of myth, but didn’t essentially change its meaning. Actually, the mass reproducibility of images, instead of provoking the “fall of aura”, as stated by Walter Benjamin, seems to have increased the "sacred" magnetism of the images.The icon David Bowie is the result of a multifaceted and outstanding personality which involved and influenced every possible contemporary language - fashion, music, theatre, film, performance, video and more recently internet. As always the photographic gaze captured and crystallized over time the different visions making them eternal and “biting” in the meaning which Barthes clarified in his famous book.The intense collaboration with “the man who photographed the Seventies”, the English Mick Rock, produced images intended to write an important piece of the history of contemporary photography. Ziggy Stardust, the character masterfully interpreted and documented by Mick Rock, is the symbol of Bowie’s fascinating ability

    From India to Europe with a single destination in mind: CERN. This was the dream of five young students who convinced their parents to fund their travel costs and their school to organise the trip. Now, of course, they all plan to come back here as physicists. We have no doubt that they'll succeed!   Students, parents and teachers from Varanasi (India) are photographed here with CERN's Mick Storr and John Ellis. Everything was triggered by an electrical engineering course that some of the students were following at their school in Varanasi (India). Eeshan Jaiswal and his friend were involved in a project on electric charges and kept asking me about fundamental particles and how the subatomic world works,” says Dr. Raka Ray Mondal, a physics teacher at the Rajghat Besant High School, who organised the trip. “They were very keen on the project and we all started to get enthusiastic.” The next step was to find a contact person here at CERN but this ...

  16. Old processes, new perspectives: Familiarity is correlated with (not independent of) recollection and is more (not equally) variable for targets than for lures.

    According to dual-process models of memory, recognition is subserved by two processes: recollection and familiarity. Many variants of these models assume that recollection and familiarity make stochastically independent contributions to performance in recognition tasks and that the variance of the familiarity signal is equal for targets and for lures. Here, we challenge these 'common-currency' assumptions. Using a model-comparison approach, featuring the Continuous Dual Process (CDP; Wixted & Mickes, 2010) model as the protagonist, we show that when these assumptions are relaxed, the model's fits to individual participants' data improve. Furthermore, our analyses reveal that across items, recollection and familiarity show a positive correlation. Interestingly, this across-items correlation was dissociated from an across-participants correlation between the sensitivities of these processes. We also find that the familiarity signal is significantly more variable for targets than for lures. One striking theoretical implication of these findings is that familiarity-rather than recollection, as most models assume-may be the main contributor responsible for one of the most influential findings of recognition memory, that of subunit zROC slopes. Additionally, we show that erroneously adopting the common-currency assumptions, introduces severe biases to estimates of recollection and familiarity.

    Full Text Available The aim of the paper, deriving from David G. Mick, James E. Burroughs, Patrick Hetzel and Mary Y. Brannen’s (2004 theoretical approach, is to analyse whether the theories on marketing semiotics are applicable in the medieval context as well, i.e. if it could be said that Constantine - Cyril the Philosopher applied marketing semiotics in creating and promoting the Glagolitic script, i.e. the idea of Christianity, in the 9th century. The authors briefly remind of the development of semiotics and mention some relevant theories on marketing semiotics, review several theories on the origins of the Glagolitic script and then apply the above theories on Glagolitic graphemes and the script system as a whole. Constantine - Cyril the Philosopher’s curriculum vitae imposes the assumption that his mission was qualified by all the rules of marketing communications - by the creation of the Glagolitic script, Constantine - Cyril the Philosopher promoted the idea of Christianity embedded in the visual identity of each individual sign (and all the signs ordered into azbuka sequence almost ‘following’, or better to say, anticipating the guidelines of the nowadays acknowledged theory on the rules of efficient marketing communications. The authors postulate the hypothesis that Glagolitic letters - graphemes, are powerful, arbitrary signs, the arbitrariness of which Constantine - Cyril encoded with a view to accomplishing the goals of his mission.

  4. The "we of me": Carson McCullers as lesbian novelist.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Whitt, J

    1999-01-01

    Although Carson McCullers camouflaged her love for women in her fiction, gay and lesbian themes are inarguably present in her work. The loneliness that her characters face takes on allegorical intensity, and it is even more potent due to her own sexual confusion and alienation. Married twice to the same man and falling in love repeatedly with both women and men, McCullers wrestled with bisexuality throughout her personal and literary life. Her deepest attachments were to her husband Reeves McCullers; David Diamond, a musician-composer in love with both McCullers and her husband; and Anne-marie Clarac-Schwarzenbach, a Swiss writer. All three of these love interests required that McCullers deal with complicated and ultimately destructive triangles. Given that fact, it is no surprise that she created fictional worlds peopled with characters engaged in three-way relationships. In her novels, Mick (The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter), Frankie (The Member of the Wedding), Miss Amelia (The Ballad of the Sad Cafe) and Weldon Penderton (Reflections in a Golden Eye) also reflect the author's sexual ambivalence and inability to fit into the prescribed social structures of the South.

  5. RF deflecting cavity design for Berkeley ultrafast X-ray source

    Li, D.; Corlett, J.

    2002-05-01

    Our proposed source for production of ultra-short (less than 100 fs FWHM) x-ray pulses utilizes a scheme for manipulation of the relatively long (2 ps) electron bunch in transverse phase-space, followed by compression of the emitted x-ray pulse in crystal optics. In order to compress the x-ray pulses, RF cavities operating in a dipole mode (TM110-like) are required to deflect the head and tail of a 2.5 GeV bunch in opposite directions. For a 2 ps duration electron bunch, an 8.5 MV deflecting voltage is required at a RF frequency of 3.9 GHz. In this paper, we will present a preliminary cavity design based on numerical simulations performed by MAFIA and URMEL codes. Seven-cell superconducting p mode dipole RF cavities are proposed to provide the necessary deflecting voltage. Due to the presence of beam iris, the mavities operate in a hybrid mode where TM and TE like modes co-exist. Even on mhe beam axis, both magnetic and electric fields contribute to the transverse mick. Lower order monopole modes (LOMs) in the cavities may cause energy spread of the electron beam and need to be damped. The effects of the LOMs on beam dynamics are estimated. Possible damping schemes will be discussed.

    An international conference on Transposable Elements (TEs) was held 21-24 April 2012 in Saint Malo, France. Organized by the French Transposition Community (GDR Elements Génétiques Mobiles et Génomes, CNRS) and the French Society of Genetics (SFG), the conference's goal was to bring together researchers from around the world who study transposition in diverse organisms using multiple experimental approaches. The meeting drew more than 217 attendees and most contributed through poster presentations (117), invited talks and short talks selected from poster abstracts (48 in total). The talks were organized into four scientific sessions, focused on: impact of TEs on genomes, control of transposition, evolution of TEs and mechanisms of transposition. Here, we present highlights from the talks given during the platform sessions. The conference was sponsored by Alliance pour les sciences de la vie et de la santé (Aviesan), Centre national de la recherche scientifique (CNRS), Institut national de la santé et de la recherche médicale (INSERM), Institut de recherche pour le développement (IRD), Institut national de la recherche agronomique (INRA), Université de Perpignan, Université de Rennes 1, Région Bretagne and Mobile DNA.

    Full Text Available L'identità rinvia quasi sempre alle proprie origini; immobilizza. È incapace di pensare il divenire che sorge dall'incontro. Si oppone in questo al processo del métissage, un pensiero che non è ancora stato veramente elaborato. Io vedo l'identità coma compattezza e completezza e mai come mancanza e perdita. La rassicurazione identitaria, la certezza, la violenza identitaria: ecco cosa bisogna mettere in crisi, più che in questione. Siamo alla ricerca di un nuovo paradigma che è attualmente in formazione e che io chiamo métissage. Il fatto di continuare a utilizzare stereotipi come identità, rappresentazione e molti altri, finisce per impedire l'esercizio del pensiero critico. (... Il métissage è quel momento improbabile che rientra nel campo di una conoscenza vibratoria e non del sapere. Come dire? Il sapere - mi rifaccio a Maurice Blanchot - è il pensiero del giorno, il pensiero che illumina, il pensiero che analizza, che vede tutto chiarito dalla luce e se ne impossessa. Il pensiero identitario vi s'inscrive bene. Mentre al contrario la conoscenza vibratoria è la conoscenza del giorno e della notte alternati, la conoscenza della penombra. Il métissage si trova in questi momenti assai rari che sorgono prima che si rapprenda il cemento identitario. È talmente raro!.

    Full Text Available This paper aimed to evaluate the allelopathic potential of ethanol extracts from stem and leaves of Copaifera sabulicola on seed germination and seedling growth of Lactuca sativa and Lycopersicum esculentum, as well as to evaluate the allelopathic effect of these extracts on seedling germination and growth of Zea mays, through bioassays under laboratory conditions. The extracts were tested at the concentrations 0, 250, 500, and 1,000 mg.L-1. We evaluated the germination percentage, germination average speed, germination speed index, and seedling average length. All parameters underwent variance analysis, and the mean values were compared by means of Scott-nott test p 0.05. We found out that, in L. sativa, the extract from stem promoted signicant stimuli on germination percentage and root growth, while the extract from leaves only stimulated root growth. In L. esculentum, the extract from stem promoted signicant stimulus on hypocotyl and root growth, in turn, the extract from leaves stimulated only root growth. In Z. mays, both extracts signicantly inhibited germination. Therefore, we found out the allelopathic potential of ethanol extracts of C. sabulicola on L. sativa and L. esculentum, as well as inhibitory allelopathic effect on Z. mays.

The ``nonmigration'' in parallel-plate flow may be attributed to bulk suspension normal stress differences: assuming the bulk stress has the form Σ ~ η dotγ Q(φ) with η the fluid viscosity, nonmigration is predicted for parallel-plate flow provided that Q_33 = (1/2) Q_11 at the bulk φ of interest, with 1 the flow direction and 3 the vorticity direction. Extending the model to include normal stress differences satisfying this requirement, a range of migration behavior is predicted for the cone-and-plate flow depending upon the ratio Q_11/Q_22.

    The key requirement for a portable store of natural gas is to maximize the amount of gas within the smallest possible space. The packing of methane (CH4) in a given storage medium at the highest possible density is, therefore, a highly desirable but challenging target. We report a microporous hydroxyl-decorated material, MFM-300(In) (MFM = Manchester Framework Material, replacing the NOTT designation), which displays a high volumetric uptake of 202 v/v at 298 K and 35 bar for CH4 and 488 v/v at 77 K and 20 bar for H2. Direct observation and quantification of the location, binding, and rotational modes of adsorbed CH4 and H2 molecules within this host have been achieved, using neutron diffraction and inelastic neutron scattering experiments, coupled with density functional theory (DFT) modeling. These complementary techniques reveal a very efficient packing of H2 and CH4 molecules within MFM-300(In), reminiscent of the condensed gas in pure component crystalline solids. We also report here, for the first time, the experimental observation of a direct binding interaction between adsorbed CH4 molecules and the hydroxyl groups within the pore of a material. This is different from the arrangement found in CH4/water clathrates, the CH4 store of nature.

  16. Scritture separate: autocensura testuale e imposizione visuale del bondage in Dino Buzzati

    Full Text Available The last period of Dino Buzzati's literary production (1960-1971 offers topics and stylistic forms that significantly diverge from the author's persona as prematurely proposed by criticism. Buzzati's prose here includes erotic and sensuous themes, while the author adds some visual elements that become increasingly pivotal in their experimentalism. This twist on contents and forms reaches is apex in some images of bondage proposed in Buzzati's "opere doppie" (Coglitore:  Le storie dipinte, Poema a fumetti e I miracoli di Val Morel. The drawings in the books are frequently explicit, but bondage is never present in the text, where nothing but distant allusions to it can be found.Moving from Gius Gargiulo's work on the topic, this study interrogates this feature of the works going beyond the level of autocensorship. I will propose to read Buzzati's formal choice through the concepts of aesthetism and suspension that Gilles Deleuze recognizes as peculiar of masochism in his study on Leopold von Sacher-Masoch Masochism: Coldness and Cruelty.Buzzati's works are therefore contextualized in literary and cinematographic Italian production between 1965 and 1975, with reference to Gianni Celati's Il chiodo in testa and Liliana Cavani's Il portiere di notte. I therefore compare the aesthetic function of bondage in Buzzati's paintings to the narrative function of the masochistic scene in Pier Vittorio Tondelli's Camere Separate.

    Two studies published in the early 80s, namely the Nocturnal Oxygen Therapy Trial (NOTT) and the Medical Research Council Trial (MRC), laid the foundations for modern home oxygen therapy. Since then, little progress has been made in terms of therapeutic indications, and several prescription-associated problems have come to light. Advances in technology have gone hand in hand with growing disregard for the recommendations in clinical guidelines on oxygen therapy. The introduction of liquid oxygen brought with it a number of technical problems, clinical problems related to selecting candidate patients for portable delivery devices, and economic problems associated with the rising cost of the therapy. Continuous home oxygen therapy has been further complicated by the recent introduction of portable oxygen concentrators and the development in quick succession of a range of delivery devices with different levels of efficiency and performance. Modern oxygen therapy demands that clinicians evaluate the level of mobility of their patients and the mobility permitted by available oxygen sources, correctly match patients with the most appropriate oxygen source and adjust the therapy accordingly. The future of continuous home oxygen therapy lies in developing the ideal delivery device, improving the regulations systems and information channels, raise patient awareness and drive research.

  18. Approximate Bayesian Computation in hydrologic modeling: equifinality of formal and informal approaches

    Full Text Available In recent years, a strong debate has emerged in the hydrologic literature how to properly treat non-traditional error residual distributions and quantify parameter and predictive uncertainty. Particularly, there is strong disagreement whether such uncertainty framework should have its roots within a proper statistical (Bayesian context using Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC simulation techniques, or whether such a framework should be based on a quite different philosophy and implement informal likelihood functions and simplistic search methods to summarize parameter and predictive distributions. In this paper we introduce an alternative framework, called Approximate Bayesian Computation (ABC that summarizes the differing viewpoints of formal and informal Bayesian approaches. This methodology has recently emerged in the fields of biology and population genetics and relaxes the need for an explicit likelihood function in favor of one or multiple different summary statistics that measure the distance of each model simulation to the data. This paper is a follow up of the recent publication of Nott et al. (2012 and further studies the theoretical and numerical equivalence of formal (DREAM and informal (GLUE Bayesian approaches using data from different watersheds in the United States. We demonstrate that the limits of acceptability approach of GLUE is a special variant of ABC in which each discharge observation of the calibration data set is used as a summary diagnostic.

    This study's purpose was to examine the comprehension, rate and perceptions and reading preferences of adults with severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) when reading passages with and without computerized text-to-speech (TTS) support. Nine adults with severe TBI read 24 passages in two conditions: with and without TTS support. The researchers compared reading rate and comprehension accuracy across conditions. Also, participants rated their perceived performance and reading preferences via a follow-up questionnaire. Comparison to normative data revealed that all nine participants read slower than average neurotypical readers. As a group, participants read significantly faster with TTS support than without such support, even though the TTS reading rate was roughly comparable to the oral rather than silent reading rate of neurotypical adults. No significant differences in comprehension resulted between the two conditions. Over half of the participants preferred the TTS condition over the no-TTS condition. In general, participants were inaccurate in judging their relative reading rates and comprehension accuracy across conditions. TTS may improve reading efficiency without compromising reading comprehension accuracy for adults with TBI. Given this finding, some survivors may find use of TTS technology contributes to increased participation in and efficiency when performing reading activities.

  20. Numerical Modelling Of Pumpkin Balloon Instability

    Wakefield, D.

    Tensys have been involved in the numerical formfinding and load analysis of architectural stressed membrane structures for 15 years. They have recently broadened this range of activities into the `lighter than air' field with significant involvement in aerostat and heavy-lift hybrid airship design. Since early 2004 they have been investigating pumpkin balloon instability on behalf of the NASA ULDB programme. These studies are undertaken using inTENS, an in-house finite element program suite based upon the Dynamic Relaxation solution method and developed especially for the non-linear analysis and patterning of membrane structures. The paper describes the current state of an investigation that started with a numerical simulation of the lobed cylinder problem first studied by Calladine. The influence of material properties and local geometric deformation on stability is demonstrated. A number of models of complete pumpkin balloons have then been established, including a 64-gore balloon with geometry based upon Julian Nott's Endeavour. This latter clefted dramatically upon initial inflation, a phenomenon that has been reproduced in the numerical model. Ongoing investigations include the introduction of membrane contact modelling into inTENS and correlation studies with the series of large-scale ULDB models currently in preparation.
