  10. Regard critique sur une période sans but : Antigone de Valeria Parrella

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Patrizia Farinelli

    2015-04-01

    Full Text Available Seul un petit nombre de mythes classiques ont retenu autant l'attention que celui d'Antigone. Pendant l'Idéalisme et tout le siècle suivant, l'intérêt pour la version de Sophocle de ce mythe – et plus généralement pour la tragédie classique – s'explique, selon George Steiner, par une conception tragique de la condition humaine (Steiner, 1984, 2. Quelles seraient alors les raisons de cet intérêt à une époque plus récente, sujette à une perte du sens du tragique ? Car, même durant les soixante dernières années, l'histoire de la fille d'Œdipe a été revisitée avec une fréquence surprenante. Selon Hannes Koch (1992, 23, auteur d'une étude sur la réception de la figure d'Antigone dans la littérature allemande du XXe siècle, la mise en valeur de ce personnage est liée à un moment où les droits de l'homme sont ignorés par le pouvoir. Et ce phénomène de mise en valeur implique toujours une crispation dans la sphère politique ayant pour conséquence de souligner justement l'importance politique du geste d'Antigone.

[Department of Materials, University of Oxford, Parks Road, Oxford OX1 3PH (United Kingdom); Jiang, Jun; Britton, T.

    2014-11-03

    Here, we analyse residual stress distributions obtained from various crystal systems using high resolution electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) measurements. Histograms showing stress probability distributions exhibit tails extending to very high stress levels. We demonstrate that these extreme stress values are consistent with the functional form that should be expected for dislocated crystals. Analysis initially developed by Groma and co-workers for X-ray line profile analysis and based on the so-called “restricted second moment of the probability distribution” can be used to estimate the total dislocation density. The generality of the results are illustrated by application to three quite different systems, namely, face centred cubic Cu deformed in uniaxial tension, a body centred cubic steel deformed to larger strain by cold rolling, and hexagonal InAlN layers grown on misfitting sapphire and silicon carbide substrates.

    2016-06-01

    The land surveying appeared millennia ago as a measurement technique for large human constructions. Before all its historical process that science has gone through phases of improvement that has become quite popular nowadays. Since the first measurement instruments as the Egyptian Groma to the use of theodolites and total stations integrated with all kinds of instruments of spatial data acquisition (GNSS receivers, aerial photographs, multispectral satellites the surveying methods now form the basis for various types of research. Quite confused with other sciences, such as Geodesy, Topography makes a more limited planialtimetric survey. That is why their applications are given in areas such as civil engineering, architecture, agronomy to architecture. If we know the differentiation of these key concepts related to topography we can to understand the applicability of this science, helping researchers in various fields. It is in this context, that the present paper aims to address the main concepts related to topography and the main activities human using this technique, making a historical approach since the beginning of its use to the instruments most widely used in the survey.

  7. The city of Arcávica and the Foundation of the Servitanus Monastery

    2018-02-01

    Full Text Available During the Visigothic period, the city of Arcavica was one of the three bishoprics placed in the present province of Cuenca, together with those of Segobriga and Valeria. With the exception of the signatures of Arcavica's prelates on Council minutes there is no direct mention of the city in the sources available. Even so, the importance of its archaeological site is reflected in the numerous remains found on the hill where the Roman-Celtiberian city of Ercavica used to lay. However important the city itself may be, archaeological research in this area is mainly focused on the problem of locating the Servitanus Monastery founded by the North-African abbot Donatus and his seventy monks. Its location in Arcavica, as the authors of the present article defend, is essential to interpret the remains found in this site and to understand a significant part of Spain's history that takes place during the crucial years of Leovigild's and Recared's reigns.

    Full Text Available Cinzia Federico, Valeria M Morittu, Domenico Britti, Elena Trapasso, Donato CoscoDepartment of Health Sciences, Building of BioSciences, University “Magna Græcia” of Catanzaro, Campus Universitario “S Venuta”, Germaneto, ItalyAbstract: This review describes the strategies used in recent years to improve the biopharmaceutical properties of gemcitabine, a nucleoside analog deoxycytidine antimetabolite characterized by activity against many kinds of tumors, by means of liposomal devices. The main limitation of using this active compound is the rapid inactivation of deoxycytidine deaminase following administration in vivo. Consequently, different strategies based on its encapsulation/complexation in innovative vesicular colloidal carriers have been investigated, with interesting results in terms of increased pharmacological activity, plasma half-life, and tumor localization, in addition to decreased side effects. This review focuses on the specific approaches used, based on the encapsulation of gemcitabine in liposomes, with particular attention to the results obtained during the last 5 years. These approaches represent a valid starting point in the attempt to obtain a novel, commercializable drug formulation as already achieved for liposomal doxorubicin (Doxil®, Caelyx®.Keywords: gemcitabine, liposomes, multidrug, poly(ethylene glycol, tumors

    Full Text Available Ion Luca Caragiale is a national playwright, and is considered a symbol of Romanian society, and more than 100 years have passed since apparently we have not separated psychologically and behaviourally from the template (pattern in which loan Luca Caragiale had set the Romanian society. We believe it’s even worse that students at the Faculty of Theater, in the ab­sence of anthropological study, play dramatic texts literally, which increases the risk to stereotype Caragiale’s opera in school. In this article we intend to present Alexa Visarion’s[1] films, based on Ion Luca Caragiale’s short stories, as well as the play Dale Carnavalului (Of the Carnival directed by him, as a guest professor, at the National Theatre Art Institute from Reykja-vic, Island (1989.

Aliaga Rossel, investigador universitario chileno residente en Canadá, con el fin de solicitar el apoyo de esta publicación en el caso que actualmente lleva contra la Universidad de Calabria, Italia. Diversas asociaciones internacionales, así como intelectuales de reconocido prestigio (Noam Chomsky, James L. Peacock, Ariel Dorfman o Mario Medina Valeria entre otros, han manifestado públicamente su defensa ante las solicitudes del investigador chileno. Según las fuentes que hemos podido consultar y a falta de conseguir la versión de una de las partes, David Aliaga se inscribió en el programa de doctorado en Etnoantropología, impartido por la Universidad de Calabria, en el año 1987. Una vez realizados los estudios doctorales, presentó su tesis ante la universidad, contando con el visto bueno para su evaluación. El día 25 de julio de 1991 fue la fecha designada por la universidad para cumplir con el examen doctoral ante la comisión examinadora. Ese día, la comisión examinadora no se presentó en pleno y además le negó el título de doctor al examinado sin permitirle la defensa. De acuerdo con el Sr. Aliaga, esta actitud fue una revancha ante las denuncias que él había realizado anteriormente sobre las serias irregularidades existentes en dicha Universidad.

Nanoparticles armed with gH625 are able to cross an in vitro model of the blood–brain barrier (BBB. In the present study, in vitro experiments were performed to investigate whether gH625 can enter and accumulate in neuron and astrocyte cell lines. The ability of gH625 to cross the BBB in vivo was also evaluated. gH625 was administered in vivo to rats and its presence in the liver and in the brain was detected. Within 3.5 hours of intravenous administration, gH625 can be found beyond the BBB in proximity to cell neurites. gH625 has no toxic effects in vivo, since it does not affect the maximal oxidative capacity of the brain or the mitochondrial respiration rate. Our data suggest that gH625, with its ability to cross the BBB, represents a novel nanocarrier system for drug delivery to the central nervous system. These results open up new possibilities for direct delivery of drugs into patients in the field of theranostics and might address the treatment of several human diseases. Keywords: drug delivery, neurons, astrocytes, blood–brain barrier, peptide

    Full Text Available Valeria Nagy1, Lili Takacs1, Zita Steiber1, György Pfliegler2, Andras Berta11Department of Ophthalmology, 2Division of Rare Diseases, University of Debrecen Medical and Health Science Center, Debrecen, HungaryBackground: Retinal artery occlusion (RAO is an ischemic vascular damage of the retina, which frequently leads to sudden, mostly irreversible loss of vision. In this study, blood thrombophilic factors as well as cardiovascular risk factors were investigated for their relevance to this pathology. Thrombophilic risk factors so far not evaluated were included in the study.Patients and methods: 28 RAO patients and 81 matched control subjects were examined. From blood samples, protein C, protein S, antithrombinopathy, and factor V (Leiden mutation (FV, factor II gene polymorphism, factor VIII C level, plasminogen activity, lipoprotein(a and fibrinogen levels, hyperhomocysteinemia and presence of anticardiolipin – antiphospholipid antibodies were investigated. Possibly relevant pathologies such as diabetes mellitus, hypertension, and ischemic heart disease were also registered. Statistical analysis by logistic regression was performed with 95% confidence intervals.Results: In the group of patients with RAO only the incidence of hypertension (OR: 3.33, 95% CI: 1.30–9.70, p = 0.014 as an average risk factor showed significant difference, but thrombophilic factors such as hyperfibrinogenemia (OR: 2.9, 95% CI: 1.29–6.57, p = 0.010 and the presence of FV (Leiden mutation (OR: 3.9, 95% CI: 1.43–10.96, p = 0.008 increased the chances of developing this disease.Conclusions: Our results support the assumption that thrombophilia may contribute to the development of RAO besides vascular damage due to the presence of cardiovascular risk factors. Further studies are needed, however, to justify the possible use of secondary prophylaxis in form of anticoagulant/antiplatelet therapy.Keywords: retinal arterial occlusion, risk factors, thrombophilia

We accomplished an in vivo study exploiting Daphnia magna and Xenopus laevis to evaluate both toxicity and uptake of QDs coated with the membranotropic peptide gH625 derived from the glycoprotein H of herpes simplex virus and widely used for drug delivery studies. We evaluated and compared the effects of QDs and gH625-QDs on the survival, uptake, induction of several responsive pathways and genotoxicity in D. magna, and we found that QDs coating plays a key role. Moreover, studies on X. laevis embryos allowed to better understand their cell/tissue localization and delivery efficacy. X. laevis embryos raised in Frog Embryo Teratogenesis Assay-Xenopus containing QDs or gH625-QDs showed that both nanoparticles localized in the gills, lung and intestine, but they showed different distributions, indicating that the uptake of gH625-QDs was enhanced; the functionalized QDs had a significantly lower toxic effect on embryos’ survival and phenotypes. We observed that D. magna and X. laevis are useful in vivo models for toxicity and drug delivery studies. Keywords: membranotropic peptide, delivery, blood–brain barrier, nanoparticles, genotoxicity

Normally each of these techniques provides only partial information about the environment, while combined investigations could reveal new phenomena occurring in complex systems such as in-vitro neuronal networks. Aiming at the merging of optical and electrical investigations of biological samples, we introduced three-dimensional plasmonic nanoantennas on CMOS-based electrical sensors [1]. The overall device is then capable of enhanced Raman Analysis of cultured cells combined with electrical recording of neuronal activity. The Raman measurements show a much higher sensitivity when performed on the tip of the nanoantenna in respect to the flat substrate [2]; this effect is a combination of the high plasmonic field enhancement and of the tight adhesion of cells on the nanoantenna tip. Furthermore, when plasmonic opto-poration is exploited [3] the 3D nanoelectrodes are able to penetrate through the cell membrane thus accessing the intracellular environment. Our latest results (unpublished) show that the technique is completely non-invasive and solves many problems related to state-of-the-art intracellular recording approaches on large neuronal networks.

Improved results can be obtained by drug vectorization to the hyperplastic tissue. The main objective of this work was the preparation and characterization of poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid (PLGA nanoparticle and clay nanosystems containing babassu oil (BBS. BBS was extracted from the kernels of babassu tree nuts and characterized by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry as well as 1H and 13C nuclear magnetic resonance. BBS-clay nanosystems were obtained by adding polyvinylpyrrolidone, Viscogel B8®, and BBS at a 2:1:1 mass ratio and characterized by X-ray diffraction, thermogravimetric analysis, infrared spectroscopy, and laser diffraction. The PLGA-BBS nanoparticles were prepared by the precipitation-solvent evaporation method. Mean diameter, polydispersity, zeta potential, and scanning electron microscopic images of the nanosystems were analyzed. Thermogravimetric analysis showed successful formation of the nanocomposite. PLGA nanoparticles containing BBS were obtained, with a suitable size that was confirmed by scanning electron microscopy. Both nanostructured systems showed active incorporation yields exceeding 90%. The two systems obtained represent a new and potentially efficient therapy for benign prostatic hyperplasia.

To meet this objective, we tested the level of antimicrobial activity on Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, and we designed an ecotoxicological battery of test systems and indicators able to detect different effects using a variety of end points. The antibacterial activity was analyzed against Staphylococcus aureus (ATCC 6538, Pseudomonas aeruginosa (ATCC 1025, Escherichia coli (ATCC 11229, and Klebsiella pneumoniae (ATCC 10031, and the results showed an improved germicidal action of QDs-Ind. Toxicity studies on Daphnia magna indicated a decrease in toxicity for QDs-Ind compared to QDs alone, lack of bioluminescence inhibition on Vibrio fisheri, and no mutations in Salmonella typhimurium TA 100. The comet assay and oxidative stress experiments performed on D. magna showed a genotoxic and an oxidative damage with a dose–response trend. Indolicidin retained its activity when bound to QDs. We observed an enhanced activity for QDs-Ind. The presence of indolicidin on the surface of QDs was able to decrease its QDs toxicity.

    Full Text Available Giuseppe Pasqualetti, Sara Tognini, Valeria Calsolaro, Antonio Polini, Fabio Monzani Geriatrics Unit, Department of Clinical and Experimental Medicine, University of Pisa, Pisa, Italy Abstract: The use of multi drug regimens among the elderly population has increased tremendously over the last decade although the benefits of medications are always accompanied by potential harm, even when prescribed at recommended doses. The elderly populations are particularly at an increased risk of adverse drug reactions considering comorbidity, poly-therapy, physiological changes affecting the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of many drugs and, in some cases, poor compliance due to cognitive impairment and/or depression. In this setting, drug–drug interaction may represent a serious and even life-threatening clinical condition. Moreover, the inability to distinguish drug-induced symptoms from a definitive medical diagnosis often results in addition of yet another drug to treat the symptoms, which in turn increases drug–drug interactions. Cognitive enhancers, including acetylcholinesterase inhibitors and memantine, are the most widely prescribed agents for Alzheimer’s disease (AD patients. Behavioral and psychological symptoms of dementia, including psychotic symptoms and behavioral disorders, represent noncognitive disturbances frequently observed in AD patients. Antipsychotic drugs are at high risk of adverse events, even at modest doses, and may interfere with the progression of cognitive impairment and interact with several drugs including anti-arrhythmics and acetylcholinesterase inhibitors. Other medications often used in AD patients are represented by anxiolytic, like benzodiazepine, or antidepressant agents. These agents also might interfere with other concomitant drugs through both pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic mechanisms. In this review we focus on the most frequent drug–drug interactions, potentially harmful, in AD patients with

Despite evidence for an altered biological function encoded by this variant, this knowledge is not yet utilized clinically. The aim of the present review was to collect and discuss the available information on the 118A>G SNP in the OPRM1 gene, at the molecular level and in its clinical manifestations. In vitro biochemical and molecular assays have shown that the variant receptor has higher binding affinity for ß-endorphins, that it has altered signal transduction cascade, and that it has a lower expression compared with wild-type OPRM1. Studies using animal models for 118A>G have revealed a double effect of the variant receptor, with an apparent gain of function with respect to the response to endogenous opioids but a loss of function with exogenous administered opioid drugs. Although patients with this variant have shown a lower pain threshold and a higher drug consumption in order to achieve the analgesic effect, clinical experiences have demonstrated that patients carrying the variant allele are not affected by the increased opioid consumption in terms of side effects.

A group of 120 students were recruited to complete an ad hoc questionnaire, Scale of Perceived Occupational Self-Efficacy, and Semantic Differentials. The objectives of the study were to analyze the relationship between occupational self-efficacy and professional preference; to measure the influence of independent variables, such as age and gender, on the representation that students have of themselves and of the profession; and to identify the predictor variables of self-efficacy in the vocational decision.Results: Data showed that the distance between professional identity and social identity increases with age. Results underline that males seem to perceive themselves more self-efficient in military, scientific–technological, and agrarian professions than females. Furthermore, the type of job performed by parents appears to be a self-efficacy predictor variable in the choice of professions in the services area.Conclusion: Individuals’ perceived occupational self-efficacy, gender, age, and parents’ profession have implications for exploratory behavior. The conditions that make gender differences salient are more likely to favor self-representations of the career and consistent assessments with these representations.

The aim of this study is to investigate the relationship between tinnitus and psychiatric comorbidities from different points of view: categorical, dimensional, temperamental, and perceived stress level.Methods: Two hundred and thirty-nine patients affected by tinnitus were recruited between January and October 2012. Patients underwent a preliminary battery of tests including the Tinnitus Handicap Inventory (THI, Symptom Check List (SCL90-R, Temperament and Character Inventory (TCI, and Stress-Related Vulnerability Scale (VRS, and eventually a full psychiatric evaluation. Results: One hundred and fourteen patients (48% of the total sample presented psychiatric comorbidity. Among these, a higher prevalence of depression, somatization, obsession, and anxiety was found. More than 41% of patients affected by decompensated tinnitus reported a family history of psychiatric disorders. Significant positive correlations between the psychopathological screening tools (SCL90-R and VRS and THI were found. Patients affected by comorbid psychiatric disorder showed specific temperamental and characterial predispositions.Conclusion: Psychiatric comorbidity in subjects affected by tinnitus is frequent.

Despite its therapeutic potential, the low solubility of dapsone in water results in low bioavailability and high microbial resistance. Nanoemulsions are pharmaceutical delivery systems derived from micellar solutions with a good capacity for improving absorption. The aim of this work was to develop and compare the permeability of a series of dapsone nanoemulsions in Caco-2 cell culture against that of effective permeability in the human body simulated using GastroplusTM software.Methods and results: The release profiles of the dapsone nanoemulsions using different combinations of surfactants and cosolvent showed a higher dissolution rate in simulated gastric and enteric fluid than did the dispersed dapsone powder. The drug release kinetics were consistent with a Higuchi model.Conclusion: This comparison of dapsone permeability in Caco-2 cells with effective permeability in the human body simulated by Gastroplus showed a good correlation and indicates potential improvement in the biodisponibility of dapsone using this new system.Keywords: dapsone, nanoemulsions, antibacterial, permeability, Caco-2 cell, GastroplusTM

The historical meaning of the term psychosis was, however, broader, encompassing a disorganization of both consciousness and personality, including behavior abnormalities, such as impulsive overactivity and catatonia, in complete definitions by the International Classification of Diseases-10 (ICD-10 and the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5. Our review is aimed at reminding that complex psychotic symptoms, including impulsive overactivity and somatoform disorders (the last being a recent controversial entity in PD, were carefully described in postencephalitic parkinsonism (PEP, many decades before dopaminergic treatment era, and are now described in other parkinsonisms than PD. Eminent neuropsychiatrists of the past century speculated that studying psychosis in PEP might highlight its mechanisms in other conditions. Yet, functional assessments were unavailable at the time.

In this study it is shown that Dox interacts with monosialoglycosphingolipid (GM1 ganglioside micelles primarily through hydrophobic interactions independent of pH and ionic strength. In addition, Dox can be incorporated even into GM1 micelles already containing highly hydrophobic paclitaxel (Ptx. However, it was not possible to incorporate Ptx into Dox-containing GM1 micelles, suggesting that Dox could be occupying a more external position in the micelles. This result is in agreement with a higher hydrolysis of Dox than of Ptx when micelles were incubated at alkaline pH. The loading of Dox into GM1 micelles was observed over a broad range of temperature (4°C–55°C. Furthermore, Dox-loaded micelles were stable in aqueous solutions exhibiting no aggregation or precipitation for up to 2 months when kept at 4°C–25°C and even after freeze–thawing cycles. Upon exposure to blood components, Dox-containing micelles were observed to interact with human serum albumin. However, the amount of human serum albumin that ended up being associated to the micelles was inversely related to the amount of Dox, suggesting that both could share their binding sites. In vitro studies on Hep2 cells showed that the cellular uptake and cytotoxic activity of Dox and Ptx from the

Methods: A literature review was conducted using Medline, Embase, and Current Contents databases, up to September 1, 2013 to identify publications reporting new contraceptives in development using combinations of the search terms: contraception, contraceptives, oral contraceptives, patch, vaginal ring, implants, intrauterine contraceptives, and emergency contraception (EC. Also, several experts in the field were also consulted to document ongoing projects on contraception development. Additionally, the Clinicaltrial.gov website was searched for ongoing studies on existing contraceptive methods and new and emerging female contraceptives developed over the past 5 years. Information was also obtained from the pharmaceutical industry. Results: Early sexual debut and late menopause means that women may require contraception for up to 30 years. Although oral, injectable, vaginal, transdermal, subdermal, and intrauterine contraceptives are already available, new contraceptives have been developed in an attempt to reduce side effects and avoid early discontinuation, and to fulfill women's different requirements. Research efforts are focused on replacing ethinyl-estradiol with natural estradiol to reduce thrombotic events. In addition, new, less androgenic progestins are being introduced and selective progesterone receptor

We designed these studies with the aim of designing a Phase II trial to evaluate the drugs’ efficacy in patients affected by Duchenne muscular dystrophy. For the first trial, ISOFEN1, a single-dose, randomized-sequence, open-label, active control, three-treatment cross-over study, was aimed at comparing the pharmacokinetics of ibuprofen 200 mg and isosorbide dinitrate 20 mg when given alone and concomitantly. The pharmacokinetics of ibuprofen given alone versus ibuprofen given concomitantly with isosorbide dinitrate were similar, as documented by the lack of statistically significant differences in the main drug’s pharmacokinetic parameters (time to maximal concentration [Tmax], maximal concentration [Cmax], area under the curve [AUC]0–t, and AUC0–∞. Similarly, we found that the coadministration of ibuprofen did not significantly affect the pharmacokinetics of isosorbide dinitrate. No issues of safety were detected. The second trial, ISOFEN2, was a single-site, dose titration study that was designed to select the maximum tolerated dose for isosorbide dinitrate when coadministered with ibuprofen. Eighteen out of the 19 enrolled subjects tolerated the treatment well, and

Patients and methods: Four hundred and forty adults with recent-onset, moderate-to-severe ST due to upper respiratory tract infection (URTI were randomized to a single dose of either flurbiprofen 8.75 mg spray (n=218 or flurbiprofen 8.75 mg lozenge (n=222. Throat swabs for bacterial culture were taken at baseline. ST relief was assessed at 1 minute, 1 and 2 hours post-dose using the Sore Throat Relief Rating Scale. The change from baseline at 1 and 2 hours post-dose in difficulty swallowing and swollen throat was assessed using the difficulty swallowing scale and the swollen throat scale, respectively. Patients’ experience of URTI symptoms was assessed using a URTI questionnaire at baseline and 2 hours post-dose. The change in Qualities of Sore Throat Index, a 10-item index of qualities of ST, from baseline at 2 hours post-dose was also measured. Results: ST relief was evident in the spray and the lozenge treatment groups at 1 minute, 1 and 2 hours post-dose (P>0.05. In both groups, scores for difficulty swallowing and swollen throat significantly improved at 1 and 2 hours post-dose compared with baseline. At 2 hours post-dose, the number of patients experiencing URTI symptoms that can be attributed to or associated with ST decreased relative to baseline. The mean change from baseline to 2 hours post-dose for each individual score on the Qualities of Sore Throat Index showed significant improvements for flurbiprofen spray and

Dendrimers are promising vehicles for the protection and transport of numerous bioactive molecules. This work explored the use of a neutral, non-cytotoxic hydroxyl-terminated poly(amidoamine (PAMAM-OH dendrimer as an Ang-(1–7 carrier. Bioinformatics analysis showed that the Ang-(1–7-binding capacity of the dendrimer presented a 2:1 molar ratio. Molecular dynamics simulation analysis revealed the capacity of neutral PAMAM-OH to protect Ang-(1–7 and form stable complexes. The peptide coverage ability of the dendrimer was between ~50% and 65%. Furthermore, an electrophoretic mobility shift assay demonstrated that neutral PAMAM-OH effectively bonded peptides. Experimental results showed that the Ang-(1–7/PAMAM-OH complex, but not Ang-(1–7 alone, had an anti-atrophic effect when administered intraperitoneally, as evaluated by muscle strength, fiber diameter, myofibrillar protein levels, and atrogin-1 and MuRF-1 expressions.

Information on demographics, exposures, past medical and ocular history, and medications was also collected.Results: The frequency of severe DE symptoms was found to be 43% based on the Ocular Surface Disease Index and 30% based on Dry Eye Questionnaire-5. Risk factors significantly associated with increased DE symptoms included dry mouth and gastrointestinal ulcer medications. With regard to signs, aqueous tear deficiency was a less-frequent finding (22% in our population than evaporative deficiency (94%. Risk factors associated with aqueous tear deficiency were dry mouth and diuretic use. No risk factors were associated with evaporative deficiency. Risk factors associated with meibomian gland dysfunction included old age, male sex, arthritis, and use of an antihypertensive. The only risk factor associated with corneal staining was dry

The pharmacokinetics of the sildenafil 100 mg orodispersible film (IBSA was compared to that of the conventional marketed 100 mg film-coated tablet (Viagra® after single-dose administration to 53 healthy male volunteers (aged 18–51 years in a randomized, open, two-way crossover bioequivalence study. Each subject received a single oral dose of 100 mg of sildenafil as test or reference formulation administered under fasting conditions at each of the two study periods according to a randomized crossover design. There was a washout interval of ≥7 days between the two administrations of the investigational medicinal products. Blood samples for pharmacokinetic analysis were collected up to 24 h post-dosing. The primary objective was to compare the rate (peak plasma concentration; Cmax and extent (area under the curve [AUC] from administration to last observed concentration time; AUC0–t of sildenafil absorption after single-dose administration of test and reference. Secondary endpoints were observed to describe the plasma pharmacokinetic profiles of sildenafil and its metabolite N-desmethyl-sildenafil relative bioavailability and safety profile after single-dose administration.

Oligoanalgesia is a common problem in this field. The aims of this study were to assess prevalence and intensity of pain in patients who visited a second-level urban ED and to evaluate the efficacy of pharmacological treatment administered subsequent to variations in pain intensity. Methods: A 4-week prospective observational study was carried out on 2,838 patients who visited a second-level urban ED. Pain intensity was evaluated using the Numeric Rating Scale at the moment of triage. The efficacy of prescribed analgesic therapy was evaluated at 30 and 60 minutes, and at discharge. Data concerning pain intensity were classified as absent, slight, mild, or severe. Pain was evaluated in relation to the prescribed therapy. Results: Pain prevalence was 70.7%. Traumatic events were the primary cause in most cases (40.44%, followed by pain linked to urologic problems (13.52%, abdominal pain (13.39%, and nontraumatic musculoskeletal pain (7.10%. Only 32.46% of patients were given pharmacological therapy. Of these, 76% reported severe pain, 19% moderate, and 5% slight, and 66% received nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or paracetamol, 4% opioids, and 30% other therapies. A difference of at least 2 points on the Numerical Rating Scale was observed in 84% of patients on reevaluation following initial analgesic therapy

    Full Text Available Having come from the capitals to Irkutsk in the late 50s – early 60s, those foplings, idealists, maximalists and daydreamers started a new stage full of brave ideas and incredible realizations.There is a popular belief that the architecture of the 1960s is not architecture at all. Forced to be ascetic, this architecture is often unphotogenic. Nowadays it suffers from advertisements, signs and alterations; sometimes it is utterly distorted being wrapped in shining foil of modern materials to satisfy a new owner.The editorial staff’s task was to return authors to the anonymous buildings of the 1960s.We reopen for ourselves and our readers several iconic buildings, among which there are not only Pavlov’s buildings that have all-Union and even international recognition, but also the Palace of Sports by Shmatkov, the Medical Institute by Kolpikov, the terraced hospital on the embankment and the Art School by Shilov, the polyclinic on Sverdlov Street by Nechvolodov, kindergartens and hostels by Stanislav Grigoryev, the railway station in Novo-Lenino by Nechitailo…Among them there are also residential buildings by Valeria Aptekman worked out for the center and adequately sized for man and historical Irkutsk. And its interpretation made by Antipin and Pavlov for Zvezdochka microdistrict that was published in PB 26.The reader will see an unrealized Civilian Ceremonies Hall by Khaldeev – one of the opportunities lost by Irkutsk.Voronezhsky’s sketches for the Musical Theatre, which were later taken into consideration by Moscow authors.Residential neighborhoods Headwater (Solnechny and Pervomaisky, microdistricts Baikalsky and Sinyushina Gora by Voronezhsky, Bukh, Pavlov and Grigoryev demonstrate work with systems of public spaces, pedestrian axes, courtyards and recreations that are so urgent now in the 21st century.And, finally, the bright ideas in urban planning by Voroneznsky that predetermined the city development for many years to come

In this study, we analyzed the value of topoisomerase II alpha (TOP2A and transducin-like enhancer of split 3 (TLE3 as predictive markers of response to therapy with anthracyclines and taxanes. Materials and methods: TOP2A and TLE3 protein expressions were evaluated using immunohistochemistry on 28 samples, obtained by core needle biopsy in patients with locally advanced breast carcinoma, subsequently subjected to epirubicin- and paclitaxel-based neoadjuvant chemotherapy. The immunohistochemical staining was correlated with the clinical response measured by the tumor size reduction evaluated by breast magnetic resonance imaging, prior and after chemotherapy, and by pathologic evaluation of the surgical specimen. Results: Neoadjuvant chemotherapy achieved a size reduction in 26/28 tumors (92.9%, with an average percentage decrease of 45.6%. A downstaging was achieved in 71.4% of the cases of locally advanced carcinoma. TOP2A positivity was correlated with a greater reduction in tumor diameter (P=0.06; negative staining for TLE3 was predictive of a better response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy (P=0.07. A higher reduction in tumor diameter (P=0.03 was also found for tumors that were concurrently TLE3-negative and TOP2A

    Full Text Available Barbie® is one of the attention-grabbing American cultural products. In a consumer culture, in which popular heroes are no longer the mighty, but the movie stars and beautiful people of leisure (Featherstone, 1991, Barbie® plays an important role in constructing ones’ such new standards as youth, beauty, energy, fitness, romance, luxury, enjoyment, and fun. This new standards encourage others to imitate it, like what three girls in Odessa, Ukraine do – Anastasiya Shpagina, Valeria Lukyanova, and Olga Oleynik. This phenomenon is then famous with the name ‘Barbie® flu’. What is it about this doll that makes it such a phenomenon? What are the main factors that have allowed Barbie to dominate the doll market? Zygmunt Bauman’s theory of consumer culture and Stuart Hall’s theory of circuit of culture are implemented in this phenomenological study. In this study, furthermore, the data is gathered from such informative documents as research journals and samples of free writing about the topic. The result of this study shows that because of the mass production and consumption of Barbie®, such new identities of women appear as modern society’s eagerness to look better, younger, and more attractive. Behind its success in constructing social ideas of the new standards of women appearance, Barbie® actually holds a seamy side in which she promotes an unrealistic idea of body image for the three girls in Odessa, leading to several risks. This condition then creates a new regulation in which many people from the opposite side create new propaganda not to idolize Barbie® anymore. Beyond these contrary facts, Barbie® proves that the society, represented by the Barbie® flu girls, is being ‘trapped’ in a consumer culture, a culture in which everybody wants to be like their idols, whatever the condition is. Understanding American culture, i.e. Barbie®, is important to raise one’s awareness that cultural products can also present any

Specifically, three different expression protocols were compared, differing in their genetic constructs, ie, a simple native histidine-tagged VP6 sequence, VP6 fused to thioredoxin, and VP6 obtained with the newly described small ubiquitin-like modifier (SUMO fusion system. Our results demonstrate that the histidine-tagged protein does not escape the accumulation in the inclusion bodies, and that SUMO is largely superior to the thioredoxin-fusion tag in enhancing the expression and solubility of VP6 protein. Moreover, the VP6 protein produced according to the SUMO fusion tag displays well-known assembly properties, as observed in both transmission electron microscopy and atomic force microscopy images, giving rise to either VP6 trimers, 60 nm spherical virus-like particles, or nanotubes a few micron long. This different quaternary organization of VP6 shows a higher level of immunogenicity for the elongated structures with respect to the spheres or the protein trimers. Therefore, the expression and purification strategy presented here – providing a large amount of the viral capsid protein in the native

    Neutron and x-ray scattering have emerged as powerful methods for the determination of structure and dynamics. Driven by emerging new, powerful neutron and synchrotron radiation sources, the continuous development of new instrumentation and novel scattering techniques gives rise to exciting possibilities. For example, in situ observations become possible via a high neutron or x-ray flux at the sample and, as a consequence, morphological transitions with small time constants can be detected. This special issue covers a broad range of different materials from soft to hard condensed matter. Hence, different material classes such as colloids, polymers, alloys, oxides and metals are addressed. The issue is dedicated to the 60th birthday of Professor Winfried Petry, scientific director of the Research Neutron Source Heinz Maier-Leibnitz (FRM-II), Germany, advisor at the physics department for the Bayerische Elite-Akademie, chair person of the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Metall- und Materialphysik of the German Physical Society (DPG) and a member of the professional council of the German Science Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, DFG). We would like to acknowledge and thank all contributors for their submissions, which made this special issue possible in the first place. Moreover, we would like to thank the staff at IOP Publishing for helping us with the administrative aspects and for coordinating the refereeing process, and Valeria Lauter for the beautiful cover artwork. Finally, to the readers, we hope that you find this special issue a valuable resource that provides insights into the present possibilities of neutron and x-ray scattering as powerful tools for the investigation of structure and dynamics.

    Full Text Available Como parte de amplo estudo epidemiológico sobre condições de saúde na infância, uma amostra probabilística de menores de cinco anos residentes no Município de São Paulo (n = 305 foi estudada com relação à adequação nutricional de suas dietas. Através do inquérito recordatorio do consumo alimentar nas últimas 24 horas evidenciou-se que: a a partir de um ano de idade, as dietas tornam-se insuficientes para cobrir as necessidades energéticas de grande parte da população; b em todas as idades, mas particularmente nos primeiros dois anos de vida, o aporte dietético de ferro está muito abaixo das quantidades recomendadas para o consumo do nutriente; c em todas as idades, o aporte de proteína e de vitamina A alcança valores satisfatórios. Tais achados mostraram-se compatíveis com a avaliação clínico-laboratorial do estado nutricional realizada simultaneamente ao inquérito alimentar. A estratificação social da amostra revelou que o nível sócio-econômico familiar influencia fortemente o consumo energético e, de forma menos intensa, o consumo de ferro. Na discussão dos prováveis fatores responsáveis pelos déficits dietéticos encontrados, hipóteses distintas são aventadas para o déficit energético e para o déficit de ferro. No caso do déficit energético, a origem básica do problema pareceria residir no baixo poder aquisitivo da população que condiciona insuficiente disponibilidade de alimentos e ingestão quantitativamente deficiente. No caso do déficit de ferro, a mesma hipótese valeria inteiramente apenas a partir da idade de dois anos. Antes desta idade, fatores relacionados ao desmame precoce e ao atraso na introdução de alimentos ricos em ferro aparentemente seriam mais importantes.As part of a broad epidemiological survey of the health conditions of under-fives, a random sample (n = 305 of children living in S.

However, such effects are extremely elusive via the conventional oral administration. The purpose of the present study was to prepare and characterize the physicochemical properties and the in vivo biodistribution of simvastatin-loaded lecithin/chitosan nanoparticles (SVT-LCNs suitable for nasal administration in view of an improved delivery of the statins to the brain. Materials and methods: Chitosan, lecithin, and different oil excipients were used to prepare nanocapsules loaded with simvastatin. Particle size distribution, surface charge, structure, simvastatin loading and release, and interaction with mucus of nanoparticles were determined. The nanoparticle nasal toxicity was evaluated in vitro using RPMI 2651 nasal cell lines. Finally, in vivo biodistribution was assessed by gamma scintigraphy via Tc99m labeling of the particles. Results: Among the different types of nanoparticles produced, the SVT-LCN_MaiLab showed the most ideal physicochemical characteristics, with small diameter (200 nm, positive surface charge (+48 mV and high encapsulation

Discutimos neste texto alguns aspectos das vantagens de se tratar essa área do conhecimento nas escolas, levando em conta as dimensões epistemológica e axiológica da astronomia, à luz da visão da ciência como um diálogo inteligente com o mundo, de Bachelard, além da proposta de problematização do conhecimento, de Paulo Freire. Proporemos que de fato a astronomia não precisa ser vista como apenas um novo conjunto de conteúdos a serem ensinados, mas figura como conjunto de temas motivadores para discussões histórico-filosóficas, além de permitir a abordagem de conceitos típicos de outras disciplinas.

    New, more efficient materials for spin valves - a device used in magnetic sensors, random access memories, and hard disk drives - may be on the way based on research using the magnetism reflectometer at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). Spin valve devices work by means of two or more conducting magnetic material layers that alternate their electrical resistance depending on the layers alignment. Giant magnetoresistance is a quantum mechanical effect first observed in thin film structures about 20 years ago. The effect is observed as a significant change in electrical resistance, depending on whether the magnetization of adjacent ferromagnetic layers is in a parallel or an antiparallel magnetic alignment. 'What we are doing here is developing new materials. The search for new materials suitable for injecting and transferring carriers with a preferential spin orientation is most important for the development of spintronics,' said Valeria Lauter, lead instrument scientist on the magnetism reflectometer at the Spallation Neutron Source (SNS), who collaborated on the experiment. The researchers discovered that the conductivity of such materials is improved when an organic polymer semiconductor layer is placed between the magnetic materials. Organic semiconductors are now the material of choice for future spin valve devices because they preserve spin coherence over longer times and distances than conventional semiconductors. While research into spin valves has been ongoing, research into organic semiconductors is recent. Previous research has shown that a 'conductivity mismatch' exists in spin valve systems in which ferromagnetic metal electrodes interface with such organic semiconductors as Alq3 ({pi}-conjugated molecule tris(8-hydroxy-quinoline) aluminium). This mismatch limits the efficient injection of the electrons from the electrodes at the interface with the semiconductor material. However, lithium fluoride (LiF), commonly used in light

    el centenario del nacimiento de tan ilustre colombiano.

    En el libro de bautismos No. 15, folio 56, de la pequeña población de Iza, sita en el Valle de Sogamoso, dice: “En Iza, a veintinueve de noviembre de 1891, bauticé solemnemente a un niño de cuatro días de nacido a quien llamé Luis Benigno, hijo legítimo de Timoteo Patiño y Mercedes Camargo; abuelos paternos Domingo (Patiño y Valeria Ramos; maternos, Remigio (Camargo y Bárbara Bayona. Fueron padrinos Telésforo Bayona y Domitila Fonseca, a quienes advertí lo necesario. Doy fe Rubén Salcedo”.

    Su niñez transcurrió en Iza y allí, en la escuela pública y en el Colegio de Pesca hizo los estudios de primaria. Los de secundaria los inició en el Colegio Sugamuxi de Sogamoso y los terminó en el Colegio Mayor de Nuestra Señora del Rosario de Bogotá; este Colegio y su rector, Monseñor Rafael María Carrasquilla, tuvieron gran influencia sobre Luis Patiño. En 1914 recibió su diploma de Bachiller y fue elegido para la honrosa posición de Colegial de Número de ese centro docente.

    Siempre estuvo orgulloso de haberse formado en esos claustros y siempre recordó con respeto, afecto y gratitud a Monseñor Carrasquilla; estos sentimientos los expresó bellamente en repetidas ocasiones, por ejemplo, en su tesis de grado de 1922, a la cual me referiré más adelante, y en el discurso que pronunció en 1968 cuando ingresó a la Academia Colombiana de la Lengua tratando doctamente el tema del léxico médico.

    Relatar y comentar en una ocasión como esta que hoy nos congrega la vida, las múltiples actividades, las muchas realizaciones de Luis Patiño Camargo y las numerosas distinciones que recibió y todo lo que sobre él se ha escrito, sería tarea de varias horas. Existe un gran caudal de información al respecto, gracias al escrupuloso cuidado con que él conservaba correspondencia, documentos, publicaciones, etc., ya la excelente labor de recopilación y ordenamiento, que con

    , ofrece los principales hallazgos de un estudio cualitativo realizado a estudiantes del Plan de Formación Profesional Básica. En este se analizan los sentidos educativos que construyen los estudiantes a lo largo del curso así como la posibilidad de intervenir en la construcción de estos. Desde una comprensión mutuamente configurante entre el orden estructural y subjetivo de los sentidos la autora identifica aquellos históricos que se relacionan con los mandatos sociales e institucionales, los emergentes que se articulan con las singularidades de los recorridos y los móviles. Estos últimos dan cuenta del carácter no fijo del interés así como de la posibilidad que los docentes -y la relación pedagógica que se configura en la enseñanza -tienen en los procesos de alteración de los sentidos. Por su parte, el artículo de Valeria Píriz, “El vínculo educativo y los procesos de ligazón en educación media básica: las voces de docentes y estudiantes. Estudio exploratorio en dos liceos públicos de Montevideo”, articula aportes del psicoanálisis y de la pedagogía para analizar los procesos de configuración del vínculo educativo. Desde este ángulo analítico identifica el lugar que tienen los fenómenos transferenciales en este vínculo educativo. Estos procesos incidirían - dificultando o facilitando - en el encuentro entre el deseo de enseñar del docente y el deseo de aprender de los educandos. Desde este abordaje, el vínculo y los procesos transferenciales se ubican en un lugar neurálgico para que el educando acepte la plaza que la enseñanza le ofrece y asuma el lugar de sujeto de la educación.   El artículo de Clarisa Flous, “Discursos en políticas y programas de inclusión educativa en la enseñanza media básica en Uruguay (2005‑2012”, analiza la construcción de los discursos de las políticas y programas de inclusión educativa en enseñanza media básica en Uruguay. En él se efectúa una interesante discusión en torno al concepto
