White-dwarf stars are the end product of stellar evolution for most stars in the Universe1. Their interiors bear the imprint of fundamental mechanisms that occur during stellar evolution2,3. Moreover, they are important chronometers for dating galactic stellar populations, and their mergers with other white dwarfs now appear to be responsible for producing the type Ia supernovae that are used as standard cosmological candles4. However, the internal structure of white-dwarf stars—in particular their oxygen content and the stratification of their cores—is still poorly known, because of remaining uncertainties in the physics involved in stellar modelling codes5,6. Here we report a measurement of the radial chemical stratification (of oxygen, carbon and helium) in the hydrogen- deficient white-dwarf star KIC08626021 (J192904.6+444708), independently of stellar-evolution calculations. We use archival data7,8 coupled with asteroseismic sounding techniques9,10 to determine the internal constitution of this star. We find that the oxygen content and extent of its core exceed the predictions of existing models of stellar evolution. The central homogeneous core has a mass of 0.45 solar masses, and is composed of about 86 per cent oxygen by mass. These values are respectively 40 per cent and 15 per cent greater than those expected from typical white-dwarf models. These findings challenge present theories of stellar evolution and their constitutive physics, and open up an avenue for calibrating white-dwarf cosmochronology11. [less ▲]

A human biomonitoring study was carried out measuring the levels of endocrine disruptors in 252 participants (18-76 years old) recruited between February and May 2015 from the general population of Liege Province (Belgium). In this study, we reported the recent levels of cadmium and mercury in urine, some organochlorine pesticides and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in serum, and their relations to demographic characteristics, lifestyle behaviors and dietary habits. The median urinary levels of mercury and cadmium were 0.81 µg/l and <0.5µg/l respectively. The mercury levels were higher in participants having at least 3 dental amalgams, and consuming sea fish more than once a week. Although our mercury levels in most participants were lower than some health-based guidelines, they were higher than in our neighboring countries where ban or restrictions on the dental amalgams use were implemented. Urinary cadmium levels in current smokers were significantly higher than former or never smokers, as well as non-smokers for passively exposed vs non-exposed ones. Median PCB-153 and -180 serum levels were 53.8 and 41.1 ng/g lipid respectively, but PCB-138 was below the limit of quantification of 0.15 µg/l in 49% of the samples. Among the organochlorine pesticides, 4,4’-dichlorodiphenyldichloroethylene (4,4’-DDE), beta-hexachlorohexane and hexachlorobenzene were positively detected respectively in 48%, 49% and 37% of the serum samples. Eventhough, a dramatic decrease in organochlorines levels was observed, at least 1 pesticide or PCB was detected in 96% of our population, and more than 50% of our samples were contaminated by 4 or more organochlorines. Age, body mass index, and breastfeeding duration were the most predictive determinants of pesticide or PCB serum concentrations, but not dietary habits. [less ▲]

The volatile oils of Eucalyptus camaldulensis leaves harvested in three agro-ecological areas in Senegal were analyzed by GC-FID and GC-MS. Yields ranged from 0.5 to 1.0%. Qualitative and quantitative différences were determined in the composition according to leave sources. The main compounds of Saint-Louis oils were= 18.-cineole (69.3-73.0%) and limonene (12.4-13.5%) whereas those from Kaolack were charaterized by p-cymene (28.4-32.6%), 1.8-cineole (16.8-20.0%), alpha-pinene (8.7-11.6%) and limonene (7.8-8.3%). Those from Dakar revealed high content of béta-pinene (25.3-34.4%) and alpha-eudesmol (12.3-20.6%). During drying of leaves, the proportions of all major compounds (except limonene) increased and were optimal after 2 hours extraction duration. [less ▲]

Les progrès de la médecine et des soins intensifs ont conduit à une augmentation du nombre de patients survivant à une lésion cérébrale sévère. Bien que certains patients récupèrent rapidement, d’autres demeurent dans un état de conscience altérée (ECA). Ces derniers peuvent évoluer du coma vers un état végétatif/syndrome d'éveil non répondant (EV/ENR), puis vers un état de conscience minimale (ECM). Dans cette revue, nous proposons tout d’abord de décrire les différentes méthodes, comportementales et de neuro-imagerie, utilisées dans le diagnostic des patients en ECA. Nous décrirons ensuite les facteurs susceptibles d’influencer le pronostic et la récupération de ces patients, ainsi que les traitements et la prise en charge qui peuvent être proposés dans le but d’améliorer leur état de conscience. Enfin, nous clôturerons cette revue avec une réflexion sur les considérations éthiques et les questions de fin de vie. [less ▲]
