Microsporidiosis cases due to Enterocytozoon bieneusi and Encephalitozoon intestinalis are emerging opportunistic infections associated with a wide range of clinical syndromes in humans. The aim of this study was to specify microsporidial epidemiology in two different geographical areas. From November 2004 to August 2005, 228 and 42 stool samples were(More)
Liposomes and monoclonal antibodies are used as drug carriers for the optimal delivery of pharmacologic agents. However, they present disadvantages that led us to develop a new model of drug carriers: the nanoerythrosomes. Nanoerythrosomes are vesicles prepared by the extrusion of red blood cell ghosts, the average diameter of these vesicles is 0.1 micron.(More)
The scenarization of educational activities, especially those that are going to take place within e-learning platforms, has for a number of years represented a major challenge for groups working to favor the emergence of educational standards. In this paper we describe a meta-model, LDL (Learning Design Language), to formalize scenarized activities. We(More)
Designing a computer-supported learning scenario involving a constructivist approach of learning lays on a paradox. On the one hand, learning flows must be precisely described – including role distribution, required resources, tools, and scaffolds – to be realized in computer-supported environments. On the other hand, a fine-grained formalization of(More)
We have recently developed a new drug which is a carrier from red blood cell membrane. This carrier, named nanoerythrosome (nEryt), is prepared by extrusion of erythrocyte ghosts to produce small vesicles having an average diameter of 100 nm. Daunorubicin (DNR) was covalently conjugated to the nEryt (nEryt-DNR) using glutaraldehyde as homobifunctional(More)
Morphological study of red blood cell phagocytosis by Entamoeba histolytica-like (Laredo strain) has shown that this amoeba is able to ingest by two distinct mechanisms. One is classical phagocytosis and the other is by suction or microphagocytosis. Rigidification of red blood cells by treatment with glutaraldehyde shows that there is a correlation between(More)
This paper concerns a methodology for setting up web based experiments by distinguishing two perspectives: the learning perspective (which tasks will be scheduled for pupils and tutors, how they are planned and what learning objectives they may attempt), and separately, the experiment perspective (how teachers or researchers may use trails of this(More)
