Photo-activated decontamination (PAD) has been reported in caries treatment as an aid in dentine decontamination. The aim of this study is to verify the harmlessness for pulp vitality of photo-activated decontamination (PAD) in caries treatment. Twenty freshly extracted single-rooted teeth were used. Deep class I cavities with a </= 0.5 mm dentine thickness between the floor of the cavity and the roof of cameral pulp were prepared. Following the manufacturer's instructions, cavities were filled with a photo-sensitizer (Phenothiazinechloride: 10 mg /ml), irradiated during 30 s with a 660-nm diode laser (output power: 40 mW in continuous wave; total delivered energy density: 4.87 J/cm(2)). Pulp temperature raises were recorded using a thermocouple (ALCr). Measurements were recorded every second during the irradiation and 150 s afterwards. Six records were repeated for each tooth. After 30 s of irradiation, the mean of temperature rise was 0.83 degrees C +/- 0.22 degrees C. All records showed temperature increases lower than the 3 degrees C (safety level for pulp injury). Based on our in vitro study, we can conclude that the dental pulp temperature rise following the use of PAD technique for the decontamination of dentine can be considered as save procedure for pulp vitality.

Sixty male broiler chickens fed a diet supplemented with 130 mg/kg stevioside (S group) or an unsupplemented diet (C group) from day 1 of age onwards. On day 21 of age, ten birds from either the S (SH) or C (CH) group were injected subcutaneously with 100 mug human serum albumin (HSA) and ten others from either S (SP) or C (CP) group injected with 100 mul phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) in the same way. There were no significant effect of supplementation nor interaction with age on average body weights, T(3) and T(4) concentrations of non-injected chickens. After the primary immunization, alpha(1) -glycoprotein concentrations increased in all treatment groups except the CP group, and were significantly higher in the CH group in relation to the other groups. Fourteen and 18 days after the primary immunization, HSA injected chickens of both dietary treatments had significantly higher anti-HSA immunoglobulin G (IgG) levels than their PBS injected controls. No effect of stevioside supplementation was observed for IgG level. In conclusion, dietary stevioside inclusion can attenuate the pro-inflammatory response after stimulation of the innate immune response in broiler chickens. [less ▲]

Despite their high specific stiffness and strength, laminated composite materials, e.g. fibre-reinforced plastic plies stacked at different fibre orientations, are susceptible to damage. Damage can be divided into interalaminar damage and interlaminar damage. Delamination is a typical kind of interlaminar damage which occurs in laminated composite materials, often accompanied with intralaminar damage, and may lead to a catastrophic structural collapse. The first and most crucial step in the prediction of failure of Laminated Composite Structures (LCS) is to accurately determine the stresses, particularly the three transverse stress components, also called the interlaminar stresses. It is proposed in the present paper that the integration of a displacement based solid-shell formulation and partial-hybrid stress formulation will lead to an accurate and robust solid-shell element, suitable for the efficient and detailed interlaminar stress calculation.

Background: Routinely, nephrologists rely on different biochemical markers like intact PTH (iPTH), bone-specific alkaline phosphatase (BALP), plasmatic calcium and phosphate. The aim of the present study was to evaluate different other bone markers like N-terminal propeptide of type I procollagen (PINP), active isoform 5b of the tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase (TRAP 5b) and beta-crossLaps (R) (CTXS) as well as full-length PTH (wPTH), presumed non-(1-84) PTH, and their ratio in the diagnosis of renal osteodystrophy with high and low turnover. We also determined 25 hydroxyvitamin D (25VTD), 1-25 dihydroxyvitamin D and homocystein (HCY). Methods: We performed those parameters on 73 patients with end-stage renal disease according to the manufacturers' instructions. Results: There were very strong correlations between the bone markers concentrations, particularly between BALP and PINP (r=0.953). We did not observe any correlation between the ratio whole PTH/non-(1-84) PTH and any of the usual bone markers. This ratio was significantly (p < 0.05) higher in low and high bone turnover patients than in normal patients according to the K/DOQI. We found a correlation between low levels of 25VTD and high levels of HCY Conclusions: BALP offers the best clinical and analytical profile as the easier marker of choice in hemodiallyzed patients for the diagnosis of bone disease.

The aim of study was to investigate the effect of hydroxylpropylmethylcellulose (HPMC), arabic gum (AG), konjac glucomannan (KG) and apple pectin (AP) at 2% (w/w, potato-wheat flour basis) on the potato-wheat dough (the mass ratio was 1:1) rheological, fermentation properties and its bread quality. The tan δ of potato-wheat dough was significantly increased by adding HPMC compared to those of without adding hydrocolloids (from 0.337 to 0.425), which was close to wheat dough (0.531). Moreover, the dough height during fermentation process was significantly improved by adding hydrocolloids, with the order of HPMC (23.1mm) > AP (19.3mm) > AG (18.6mm) > KG (13.6mm). In addition, the potato-wheat protein bands of potato-wheat dough turned pale by adding hydrocolloids, suggesting higher molecular weight aggregation formed between proteins-hydrocolloids or proteins-proteins after fermentation process. Furthermore, HPMC significantly increased specific volume (from 1.45 to 2.22 ml/g), and hydrocolloids restrained the starch retrogradation of potato-wheat breads. [less ▲]

In this work, a model for evaluating earthquake-triggered landslides hazard following the Newmark methodology is developed in a Geographical Information System (GIS). It is applied to El Salvador, one of the most seismically active regions in Central America, where the last severe destructive earthquakes occurred in January 13th and February 13th, 2001. The first of these earthquakes triggered more the 500 landslides and killed at least 844 people. This study is centred on the area (10x6km) where the most tragic landslide occurred (Las Colinas landslide). The model is based on the Newmark method, which treats a potential landslide as a rigid block sliding on an inclined plane. It requires inputs characterizing the geological conditions and the intensity of earthquake ground motions. The procedure includes factors such as earthquake magnitude, source-site distance, strength of geologic materials, ground water conditions and slope. The data set used in the application includes an earthquake-triggered landslides inventory for the 2001 earthquakes, a 1:100,000-scale geologic map of the region, digital cartography, strong-motion records, data on engineering properties of geologic units, and high-resolution (10 m) digital elevation models of the topography, all of them integrated in the GIS. Displacements of possible landslides along the slope (Newmark displacements) are computed from the Arias Intensity (Ia), and the Critical Acceleration (ac); the latter is inferred from the Factor of Safety (Fs). Newmark displacements have been applied to predict a landslide hazard map at regional scale, in areas where ground-shaking and geological conditions are well known. [less ▲]

A subproblem finite element method is developed for evaluating the eddy losses due to high current leads in transformers. The structural component of the transformer is modeled with classical volumetric elements or more efficiently with a thin shell model (surface impedance technique). Tools are then developed to correct the inaccuracies near edges and corners inherent to thin shell models for magnetodynamic problems. Improvements of local fields make possible accurate calculations of eddy losses and of temperature rise. [less ▲]

An electronic nose (e-nose) is an instrument composed of an array of non specific gas sensors inspired by the biological olfactory system for the detection and recognition of odours. In this work, this technology is evaluated to predict process disorders in agricultural anaerobic digestion reactors. Response of the sensor array is used to recognize a gas mixture by the use of multivariate data analysis techniques. In our case, an e-nose developed in our laboratory and composed of metal oxide semi-conductor gas sensors was equipped with a biogas dilution system to realize the measurements. When employed on small-scale digesters fed with simple feeding substrates (sucrose, lipids, mixture lipids and sucrose), the e-nose presented enthusiastic results for the detection of organic overload disorders. Multivariate process control charts were employed with the e-nose data to obtain a simple state indicator represented by the Hotelling's T² statistics. This indicator resumes the general state of the digesters when its value exceeds statistically defined control limit. Instability periods and recovery of the anaerobic digestion process when exposed to organic overfeeding could be thus precisely assessed. In addition, the use of a variety of substrates had no significant effect on the performance of the e-nose monitoring. Variations of methane content in biogas, as a result of use of substrates of different compositions, had neither any influence on the e-nose monitoring quality. Thereafter, an e-nose was placed online on continuously stirred tank reactor of 100 L over a period of 300 days. A multivariate monitoring method using recursive and adaptive principal component analysis (PCA) was applied to the e-nose data. This enabled to very efficiently compensate system drift and notably sensor drift. Moreover, adaptive PCA model could also adapt to environmental variations and to reactor slow shifts. T² statistics and its squared prediction error (SPE) obtained from the PCA model are very competitive state indicators compared to pH, alkalinity, gas production rate and methane and carbon dioxide content. Two electronic noses were also evaluated in real-scale agricultural anaerobic digestion plants. The low process state monitoring in both plants does not enable to conclude to the relevance of disorders observed by the e-nose apparatus and demonstrates the real need for online anaerobic digestion process state monitoring and its subsequent optimization in agricultural biogas plants. Even though, the performance of the recursive PCA monitoring is much superior to that of static PCA. Adaptive PCA proves to be a potential automatic drift and environmental variations correction method for online and real-time e-nose measures, notably for field applications. In conclusion, it was demonstrated in this work that e-nose technology has a real potential as an application of online monitoring of anaerobic digester state. Moreover, this research demonstrated that it was possible to realize a monitoring of the state of anaerobic digesters using only gas phase measurements. Another contribution is the use of multivariate process control techniques on e-nose data to obtain a simple state indicator as well as the use of adaptive PCA to automatically compensate drift and environmental effects on e-nose measurements.

We evaluated the performance of the Emit® tox benzodiazepine and barbiturate assays (Dade Behring) and fluorescence polarisation immunoassay (FPIA) (Abbott) for use with serum determinations in preliminary therapeutic drug monitoring or acute drug intoxication detection. Performance, as indicated by CVs, of the Emit® tox benzodiazepine and barbiturate assays and FPIA showed that both immunochemical techniques are precise and have good reproducibility. For within-run studies, results from benzodiazepine determinations showed maximum CV values of 1.91% for the Emit® method and 2.65% for FPIA; results from barbiturate determinations showed maximum CV values of 2.01% for the Emit® method and 1.89% for FPIA. For between-run studies, results from benzodiazepine determinations showed maximum CV values of 1.79% for the Emit® method and 1.12% for FPIA; results from barbiturate determinations showed maximum CV values of 2.09% for the Emit® method and 2.02% for FPIA.
