Urine crystals are commonly encountered but few papers have been published about it while it is useful for patient’s follow-up, particularly the stone-formers. For the first time to our knowledge, we have assessed the performance of an automated urine analyzer to identify and distinguish several types of crystals in a very large cohort of samples. We share in this report the results of method comparison of the SediMAX conTRUST with the polarized light microscopy which is the gold standard. We showed that the distinction between crystals and other urine elements was accurate. Negative predictive value was very good, but the positive predictive value was poor for most of crystals. The discrimination of different types of crystals between them by the automated urine analyzer still requires improvement to decrease reviewing rate and help clinician. [less ▲]

The concept of asthma inflammatory phenotypes has proved to be important in predicting response to inhaled corticosteroids. Induced sputum, which has been pivotal in the development of the concept of inflammatory phenotypes, is however not widely available. Several studies have proposed to use surrogate exhaled or blood biomarkers, like fractional exhaled nitric oxide (FENO), blood eosinophils and total serum immunoglobulin E (IgE). However, taken alone, each of these biomarkers has moderate accuracy to identify sputum eosinophilia. Here, we propose a new approach based on the likelihood ratio to study which thresholds of these biomarkers, taken alone or in combination, were able to rule in or rule out sputum eosinophils ≥3%. We showed in a large population of 869 asthmatics that combining FENO, blood eosinophils and total serum IgE could accurately predict sputum eosinophils ≥ or <3% in 58% of our population. © 2017 The Author(s).

We provide here a new set of data supporting the involvement of multiple platelet receptors in CpG ODN platelet activating effects. We observed some sequence-specific features of platelet responses to phosphorothioate-modified CpG ODNs types A, B, and C that could be useful for future development of safe therapeutic CpG ODNs. Additional investigations are needed in order to further delineate these sequence specificities, and to address the importance of higher-order structures, as well as of possible interactions with cofactors for the effects of CpG ODN on platelets.

The coupling of a polycationic Mn(III)-porphyrin, with a dinuclear Mn2(II,II)L2 core (HL = 2-{[[di(2-pyridyl)methyl](methyl)amino]-methyl}phenol), results in a dual Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) and Catalase (CAT) functional analogue, Mn2L2Pn+, enabling a detoxification cascade of the superoxide anion and hydrogen peroxide into benign H2O and O2. The SOD/CAT artificial manifolds, joined in one asset, exhibit a peak catalytic performance under physiological conditions, with log kcat(O2 •-) ≥ 7 and kcat(H2O2)/KM = 1890. The dual-enzyme (dizyme) concept allows for a builtin self-protection against the irreversible bleaching of the porphyrin unit (>75% protection), readily induced by H2O2 (200 μM, 20 equiv, in buffer solution, pH 7.8). We show herein that incubation of the photosynthetic green algae, Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, with the synthetic dizyme (as low as 0.1 μM), prevents H2O2 accumulation under high-light illumination conditions, thus providing antioxidant surveillance and photoprotection.

The dimorphic yeast Yarrowia lipolytica has become an emerging cell factory for recombinant proteins production. Expression vectors involving LIP2 promoter (pLIP2) have been developed and used successfully. However, the relationship between dimorphic transition (i.e., cell morphology) and pLIP2 regulation is still unclear and must be assessed to improve process robustness. This requests to discriminate the effect of cell morphology from that of effectors, such as pH, that trigger the dimorphic transition. This was performed using gene reporter system based on β-galactosidase activity and DsRed fluorescence, single-cell analysis by flow cytometry, and quantification of gene expression. Our results clearly pointed out that cell morphology has not effect on the regulation of pLIP2. By contrast, pH modification yielded to phenotypic heterogeneity, potentially leading to a lack of robustness of the cell population. Taken altogether, our results demonstrated that, under appropriate environmental conditions (e.g., pH being an important factor), Y. lipolytica could be considered as a robust and reliable host for recombinant protein production. © 2017, Springer Science+Business Media New York.

We report on the detection of infrared light from the super-Earth 55 Cnc e, based on four occultations obtained with Warm Spitzer at 4.5 microns. Our data analysis consists of a two-part process. In a first step, we perform individual analyses of each dataset and compare several baseline models to optimally account for the systematics affecting each lightcurve. We apply independent photometric correction techniques, including polynomial detrending and pixel-mapping, that yield consistent results at the 1-sigma level. In a second step, we perform a global MCMC analysis including all four datasets, that yields an occultation depth of 131+-28ppm, translating to a brightness temperature of 2360+-300 K in the IRAC-4.5 micron channel. This occultation depth suggests a low Bond albedo coupled to an inefficient heat transport from the planetary dayside to the nightside, or else possibly that the 4.5-micron observations probe atmospheric layers that are hotter than the maximum equilibrium temperature (i.e., a thermal inversion layer or a deep hot layer). The measured occultation phase and duration are consistent with a circular orbit and improves the 3-sigma upper limit on 55 Cnc e's orbital eccentricity from 0.25 to 0.06. [less ▲]

Saffaj et al., recently proposed an uncertainty profile for evaluating the validity of analytical methods using the statistical methodology of γ-confidence β-content tolerance intervals. This profile assesses the validity of the method by comparing the method measurement uncertainty to a pre defined acceptance limit stating the maximum uncertainty suitable for the method under study. Several years earlier as stated by these authors a SFSTP (Société Française des Sciences et Techniques Pharmaceutique) commission has developed a similar profile called accuracy profile used to assess the validity of analytical methods. This accuracy profile also uses the methodology of statistical tolerance intervals, but β-expectation tolerance intervals. The uncertainty profile of Saffaj et al. and the accuracy profile of the SFSTP commission are both fulfilling the same final purpose. The core question is finally what statistical tolerance interval to use ? The aim of this letter to the editor is to discuss this question and provide arguments that β-expectation tolerance intervals should be prefered to assess the validity of the method as this type of interval give the guarantee that each future results has high probability to fall within pre-specified acceptance limits.

We report the discovery of WASP-43b, a hot Jupiter transiting a K7V star every 0.81 d. At 0.6-Msun the host star has the lowest mass of any star hosting a hot Jupiter. It also shows a 15.6-d rotation period. The planet has a mass of 1.8 Mjup, a radius of 0.9 Rjup, and with a semi-major axis of only 0.014 AU has the smallest orbital distance of any known hot Jupiter. The discovery of such a planet around a K7V star shows that planets with apparently short remaining lifetimes owing to tidal decay of the orbit are also found around stars with deep convection zones.

Carbon-doped GeTe is a promising material for use in phase change memories since the addition of C increases the stability of the amorphous phase. By combining x-ray total scattering experiments and ab initio molecular dynamics, we show that carbon deeply modifies the structure of the amorphous phase through long carbon chains and tetrahedral and triangular units centered on carbon. A clear signature of these units is the appearance of an additional interatomic distance, around 3.3 Aring in the measured pair distribution function. Besides, the first Ge-Ge and Ge-Te distances are almost not affected by doping. [less ▲]

Context: The detection with CoRoT of solar-like oscillations in nearly 800 red giants in the first 150-days long observational run paves the way for detailed studies of populations of galactic-disk red giants. <BR />Aims: We investigate which information on the observed population can be recovered by the distribution of the observed seismic constraints: the frequency of maximum oscillation power (ν_max) and the large frequency separation (Δν). <BR />Methods: We propose to use the observed distribution of ν_max and of Δν as a tool for investigating the properties of galactic red-giant stars through comparison with simulated distributions based on synthetic stellar populations. <BR />Results: We can clearly identify the bulk of the red giants observed by CoRoT as red-clump stars, i.e. post-flash core-He-burning stars. The distribution of ν_max and of Δν gives us access to the distribution of the stellar radius and mass, and thus represent a most promising probe of the age and star formation rate of the disk, and of the mass-loss rate during the red-giant branch. <BR />Conclusions: CoRoT observations are supplying seismic constraints for the most populated class of He-burning stars in the galactic disk. This opens a new access gate to probing the properties of red-giant stars that, coupled with classical observations, promises to extend our knowledge of these advanced phases of stellar evolution and to add relevant constraints to models of composite stellar populations in the Galaxy. The CoRoT space mission was developed and is operated by the French space agency CNES, with the participation of ESA's RSSD and Science Programmes, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Germany, and Spain.

The main source of atmospheric mineral dust is the Sahara desert, which produces about half of the yearly global mineral dust.1 About 12% of the Saharan dust moves northwards to Europe, 28% westwards to the Americas, and 60% southwards to the Gulf of Guinea. Saharan dust storms can lead to particulate matter (PM) levels that exceed internationally recommended levels. Recently, special attention has been paid to the mineral PM air pollution of dust storms, which may be a serious health threat. We took a systematic review of the literature to find relevant studies on the effects of Saharan dust on air quality or human health. We searched the ISI web of knowledge database using “PM10,” “PM2.5” or “health” AND “dust storm,” “sand storm,” “African dust,” “Saharan dust,” or “dust events” without restrictions. The search extended from January 1999 to December 2008. We selected 97 articles of which 72 studied PM air pollution in Europe, 13 in the Americas, 7 in the Near East and Asia, and 4 considered international data. Only one specifically addressed air pollution in the Sahel. Four focused on human health effects—2 in the Mediterranean and 2 in the Caribbean. [less ▲]

We solve the entanglement classification under stochastic local operations and classical communication (SLOCC) for all multipartite symmetric states in the general N-qubit case. For this purpose, we introduce 2 parameters playing a crucial role, namely, the diversity degree and the degeneracy configuration of a symmetric state. Those parameters give rise to a simple method of identifying operational families of SLOCC entanglement classes of all symmetric N-qubit states, where the number of families grows as the partition function of the number of qubits.

We present a physical setup with which it is possible to produce arbitrary symmetric long-lived multiqubit entangled states in the internal ground levels of photon emitters, including the paradigmatic Greenberger-Horne-Zeilinger and W states. In the case of three emitters, where each tripartite entangled state belongs to one of two well-defined entanglement classes, we prove a one-to-one correspondence between well-defined sets of experimental parameters, i.e., locally tunable polarizer orientations, and multiqubit entanglement classes inside the symmetric subspace.

Negative thermal expansion (NTE) in tellurium based liquid alloys (GeTe 6 and GeTe 12) is analyzed through the atomic vibrational properties. Using neutron inelastic scattering, we show that the structural evolution resulting in the NTE is due to a gain of vibrational entropy that cancels out the Peierls distortion. In the NTE temperature range, these competing effects give rise to noticeable changes in the vibrational density of states spectra. Additional first principles molecular dynamics simulations emphasize the role of the temperature dependance of the Ge atomic environment in this mechanism. For comparison, we extended our study to Ge 2Sb 2Te 5 and Ge 1Sb 2Te 4 phase-change materials. [less ▲]

Using first-principles calculations based on density functional theory, we study the properties of germanium telluride crystalline nanoplatelets and nanoparticles. Above a diameter of 2.7 nm, we predict the appearance of polarization vortices giving rise to an unusual ferrotoroidic ground state with a spontaneous and reversible toroidal moment of polarization. We highlight the crucial role of inhomogeneous strain in stabilizing polarization vortices. Combined with the phase-change properties of germanium telluride, the ferrotoroidic properties could be of practical interest for ternary logic applications. [less ▲]

Context: If relativistic particle acceleration takes place in colliding-wind binaries, hard X-rays and gamma-rays are expected through inverse Compton emission, but to date these have never been unambiguously detected. Aims: To detect this emission, observations of eta Carinae were performed with INTEGRAL, leveraging its high spatial resolution. Methods: Deep hard X-ray images of the region of eta Car were constructed in several energy bands. Results: The hard X-ray emission previously detected by BeppoSax around eta Car originates from at least 3 different point sources. The emission of eta Car itself can be isolated for the first time, and its spectrum unambiguously analyzed. The X-ray emission of eta Car in the 22-100 keV energy range is very hard (Gamma ~= 1 ± 0.4) and its luminosity is 7 × 10^33 erg s^-1. Conclusions: The observed emission is in agreement with the predictions of inverse Compton models, and corresponds to about 0.1% of the energy available in the wind collision. eta Car is expected to be detected in the GeV energy range.

Organic and carbon xerogels were prepared by polycondensation of resorcinol with formaldehyde in water, followed by evaporative drying and, eventually, pyrolysis. The pH of the precursor's solution was fixed at 6.0 in all cases by adding various hydroxides as basification agent. Three alkali metal hydroxides (LiOH, NaOH and KOH) and three alkaline earth metals hydroxides (Ca(OH)(2), Ba(OH)(2), Sr(OH)(2)) were used. It was found that the pore texture of the organic and carbon xerogels is totally independent on the cation size, but depends on the charge and concentration of the counter-cation. Indeed, the pore size of the alkaline earth metal loaded samples is larger than that of the alkali metal-doped xerogels. As a matter of fact, to reach the same initial pH, the concentration in alkali metal hydroxide must be twice that of the alkaline earth metal base. The effect of ions on the pore texture was thus attributed to electrostatic effects on the microphase separation process that occurs prior to gelation. (C) 2008 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
