Bone is a multiscale composite material made of both a type I collagen matrix and a poorly crystalline apatite mineral phase. Due to remodeling activity, cortical bone is made of Bone Structural Units (BSUs) called osteons. Since osteon represents a fundamental level of structural hierarchy, it is important to investigate the relationship between mechanical(More)
We measured the release rate characteristics of caffeine from concentrated emulsions using three different sources of synthetic membranes. The formulations tested included, on the one hand, two stable cosmetic concentrated W/O emulsions (90% w/w) - one with a non ionic surfactant and one with a silicone surfactant - and on the other hand, a commercially(More)
This work concerns the ultrastructural characteristics of the two cells of the paired, bicellular, central retractor muscles (CRM) of the rotifer Trichocerca rattus. By transverse ultrathin serial sections, precise measurements where made on the following cytological characteristics: the length, diameter and average number by unit surface area for the(More)
This article reports one of the rare cases of Abiotrophia defectiva endocarditis with no underlying valvular condition. A sixty-three years old man was hospitalized because of complicated respiratory sepsis with acute heart failure. Hemocultures and echocardiogram enabled the diagnosis of A. defectiva endocarditis. The clinical course was favorable under(More)
In the canton de Vaud, General Practioners (GPs) caring for asylum seekers under the "aide d'urgence" regime can ask for an adaptation of their housing conditions, by filling out a specific form and addressing it to the medical commission responsible for advising the EVAM (the housing institution for asylum seekers) on these issues. The forms addressed to(More)
Concentrated water in oil emulsions have been obtained with four different emulsifiers to study the effect of formulation parameters on the in vitro release of caffeine. The in vitro release was studied on polysulfone membranes. Among the four emulsifiers, only one gave a statistically higher release of caffeine after 15 h (at a fixed percentage of(More)
