In this paper, a recently developed graphical signatures generation tool is used for diagnosis and on-line parametric estimation of simulated moving bed (SMB). The underlying diagnosis problem corresponds to variations affecting four of system’s parameters, namely, the two Langmuir coefficients, the extract and the feed flow rates. It is shown that this(More)
In this paper, we present a new statistical pattern recognition method for classifying cytotoxic cellular responses to toxic agents. The advantage of the proposed method is to quickly assess the toxicity level of an unclassified toxic agent on human health by bringing cytotoxic cellular responses with similar patterns (mode of action, MoOA) into the same(More)
The ALTO project (Acceíe´rateur Lineáireauprè s du Tandem d'Orsay) will provide an electron beam available at IPN Orsay at the end of 2005. The maximum energy will be 50 MeV with a maximum average intensity of 10 mA. It will be used for photofission in UC x targets. With the same target as that already used on the PARRNE set up it will be possible using(More)
UNLABELLED Host-pathogen interactions can induce epigenetic changes in the host directly, as well as indirectly through secreted factors. Previously, uropathogenic Escherichia coli (UPEC) was shown to increase DNA methyltransferase activity and expression, which was associated with methylation-dependent alterations in the urothelial expression of CDKN2A.(More)
Debarking process is a very important step for many industrial uses of wood. The ring debarker commonly used in sawmills. The variations of the log physical properties, environmental and storage conditions, and debarking operation strongly influence the bark remaining, wood loss and damage percentages on debarked log. In this paper a MPC based ring(More)
The 2004 World Health Organization classification includes the new entity "neuroblastoma-associated renal cell carcinoma." The pathogenetic link between these entities is unknown as yet. The patient reported herein developed renal cell carcinoma after anaplastic embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma, a previously unknown association. The 2nd malignancy developed very(More)
Childhood primary parotid non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) is a rare but well-recognized entity in the literature. Perineural extension of masses between the head and neck and cranium, although rare, has also been well documented. We report the first documented case, to our knowledge, of a left-sided primary parotid NHL in a child with direct intracranial(More)
The synthesis of octaazaphthalocyanine (AzaPc) derivatives, with bulky phenoxyl substituents placed at eight peripheral positions and containing either H(+), Ni(2+) or Zn(2+) ions in their central cavity, is described. The required precursors, derivatives of pyrazine-2,3-dicarbonitrile, were prepared using a nucleophilic aromatic substitution reaction(More)
A 17-year-old boy diagnosed with an alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma involving the perineum and with extensive lymphadenopathy was treated with chemotherapy yet developed metastases to the head and neck 6 months into therapy. Ten months after initial diagnosis, while receiving salvage chemotherapy and radiotherapy, he returned with pain on movement of his left(More)
