Unusual Location of Coelomic Cysts  [PDF]
Smadhi Hanen, Ben Jemai Emna, Diouani Mohamed Fethi, Abdennadhar Mahdi, Attia Monia, Ayadi-Kaddour Aida, Megdiche Mohamed Lamine
Open Journal of Respiratory Diseases (OJRD) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ojrd.2018.83004
Abstract: Intrathoracic mesothelial cysts are congenital lesions due to an abnormal development of the pericardial coelom. They are generally unilocular and can develop in various sites. We describe a case of multicystic lesions in the anterior mediastinum of a 53-year-old woman discovered in a context of an encysted pleural effusion. Chest computed tomography (CT) scan revealed multiple cystic lesions in the anterior and posterior mediastinum. Surgery was carried out and histopathology and immunohistochemistry confirmed the diagnosis of multiple coelomic cysts of the mediastinum.

Imed Ben Salah, Moufida Ben M’Barek Jemai, Ali Sdiri, Najet Shimi Slim, Mabrouk Boughdiri
Open Journal of Geology (OJG) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ojg.2016.67049
Abstract: This study focused on the geochemical, mineralogical and technological characterization of clays in Makthar area (Central of Tunisia) of Cretaceous-Paleogene. Its aims are to identify and promote use in the field of ceramics industry. The result of the mineralogical analysis of clays showed a dominance of illite with a percentage higher than 65%, of kaolinite and smectite with percentages of 15%. Geochemical analysis of the major elements of clay showed a SiO2 content exceeding 29% and a percentage of Al2O3 higher than 7.5%. The Fe2O3 percentage was ranging from 3% to 8%. The percentage of CaO was between 22.5% and 28% while that of K2O is 4%. The percentages of SO4, MgO and NaO2 were in very small fractions. Granulometric and microgranulometric analysis showed that the clay fraction (<2 μm) varies from 30% to 37%. The plasticity index showed the plasticity character of clays which presented a specific surface area ranging from 112 m2/g to 178 m2/g reflecting illite dominance. Drying behavior indicated that clay mixture had a drying shrinkage less than 7%, while the firing shrinkage didn’t exceed 2% giving the possibility of clay using in the ceramics field.
Blind Carrier Phase Recovery for General 2 Π/M-Rotationally Symmetric Constellations
Emna Ben Slimane,Slaheddine Jarboui,Ammar Bouallegue
International Journal of Wireless & Mobile Networks , 2012,
Abstract: This paper introduces a novel blind carrier phase recovery estimator for general 2π/M-rotationally symmetric constellations. This estimation method is a generalization of the non-data-aided (NDA) nonlinear Phase Metric Method (PMM) estimator already designed for general quadrature amplitude constellations. This unbiased estimator is seen here as a fourth order PMM then generalized to Mth order (Mth PMM) in such manner that it covers general 2π/M-rotationally symmetric constellations such as PAM, QAM, PSK. Simulation results demonstrate the good performance of this Mth PMM estimation algorithm against competitive blind phase estimators already published for various modulation systems of practical interest.

Emna Braham, Hajer Racil, Houda Ben Rejeb, Moncef Hamdane, Abdellatif Chabou, Faouzi El Mezni
Open Journal of Pathology (OJPathology) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ojpathology.2012.22006
Abstract: Wegener’s granulomatosis (WG) is a systemic inflammatory disease whose histopathologic features often include necrosis, granuloma formation, and vasculitis of small-to-medium-sized vessels. We report a new case of Wegener’s granulomatosis occurring in a 41-year-old man who was admitted for respiratory symptoms, fever, asthenia, night sweats and weight loss since one month. Chest X-ray and computed tomography showed multiple bilateral pulmonary excavated lesions. A trransparietal lung biopsy was performed. Histological examination showed an area of necrosis, surrounded by a palisade of histiocytes. Some of the histiocytes were multinucleated and formed true granulomas within the wall of the adjacent pulmonary artery. Serology was strongly positive for ANCA. A diagnosis of Wegener granulomatosis was conducted and the patient was started on cyclophosphamide and methylprednisolone as an initial treatment, with a favorable evolution.
Essential oil of Thymus vulgaris L. and Rosmarinus officinalis L.: Gas chromatography-mass spectrometry analysis, cytotoxicity and antioxidant properties and antibacterial activities against foodborne pathogens  [PDF]
Hanene Miladi, Rihab Ben Slama, Donia Mili, Sami Zouari, Amina Bakhrouf, Emna Ammar
Natural Science (NS) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ns.2013.56090
Abstract:

The essential oil composition of Thymus vulgaris L. and Rosmarinus officinalis L. endemic to France were determined by GC and GC-MS. Oils were assessed for their cytotoxic, antioxidant and antimicrobial activity. 31 and 37 different compounds were identified representing 99.64% and 99.38% of the thyme and rosemary oils respectively, where oxygenated monoterpenes constituted the main chemical class. Thymol (41.33%) and 1.8-cineole (24.10%) were identified as the main constituents of T. vulgaris L. and R. officinalis L., respectively. Essential oils (EOs) of selected plant species were evaluated for their in vitro cytotoxicity against the human lung adenocarcinoma epithelial cell line (A549). Cytotoxicity was measured using MTT [3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphynyltetra-zolium bromide] colorimetric assay. Dose-dependent studies revealed IC50 of 8.50 ± 0.01 μg/mL and 10.50 ± 0.01 μg/mL after 72 h on the A549 cells for R. officinalis L. and T. vulgaris L., respectively. Antioxidant activity was determined using a quantitative DPPH (1,1-diphenyl- 2-picryl hydrazyl) assay. Thymus and rosemary EOs exhibited effective radical scavenging capacity with 50% inhibitory concentration (IC50) of 437 ± 5.46 μg/mL and 189 ± 2.38 μg/mL respectively and therefore acts as a natural antioxidant agent. The antimicrobial activity of these species has also been studied against several foodborne pathogens and food isolated Salmonella spp. including S. enteritidis of significant importance. According to the results, T. vulgaris L. showed higher bactericidal effect than those from R. officinalis L. These results suggest that the essential oil from T. vulgaris L. and R. officinalis L. have potential to be used as a natural cytotoxic, antioxidant and antimicrobial agent in food processing.

Heart Histopathology and Oxidative Features in Diabetic Rats and Protective Effects of Oleuropein  [PDF]
Hedya Jemai, Sami Sayadi
Advances in Bioscience and Biotechnology (ABB) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/abb.2015.66038
Abstract: Diabetes induced cardiac dysfunction and lesions are nowadays confirmed. In fact, Diabetes is a chronic metabolic disease, which is associated with oxidative stress and hyperglycaemia which have direct toxic effects on cardio-myocytes. Olive leaves extract compounds, such as Oleuropein, have been used in many therapeutic and preventive cases. The present study is designed to evaluate the effect of Oleuropein as antioxidant on the heart histological and oxidative features in diabetic rats. Diabetes was induced by alloxan at 180 mg/kg b.w by intra-peritoneal method once. Four weeks Oleuropein rich olive leaves administration restore significantly the heart histological alteration established by diabetes and enhanced the cardiac antioxidant potential.

Acta Crystallographica Section E , 2009, DOI: 10.1107/s1600536809001767
Abstract: Lithium holmium(III) polyphosphate(V), LiHo(PO3)4, belongs to the type I of polyphosphates with general formula ALn(PO3)4, where A is a monovalent cation and Ln is a trivalent rare earth cation. In the crystal structure, the polyphosphate chains spread along the b-axis direction, with a repeat period of four tetrahedra and 21 internal symmetry. The Li and Ho atoms are both located on twofold rotation axes and are surrounded by four and eight O atoms, leading to a distorted tetrahedral and dodecahedral coordination, respectively. The HoO8 polyhedra are isolated from each other, the closest Ho...Ho distance being 5.570 (1) .

Hyperspectral Analysis for a Robust Assessment of Soil Properties Using Adapted PLSR Method  [PDF]
Zouhaier Ben Rabah, Hedi Garbia, Emna Karray, Kais Tounsi, Abdelaziz Kallel, Basel Solaiman
Advances in Remote Sensing (ARS) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/ars.2019.84007
Abstract:
Near-InfraRed and Visible (Vis-NIR) spectroscopy is a promising tool allowing to quantify soil properties. It shows that information encoded in hyperspectral data can be useful after signal processing and model calibration steps, in order to estimate various soil properties throughout appropriate statistical models. However, one of the problems encountered in the case of hyperspectral data is related to information redundancy between different spectral bands. This redundancy is at the origin of multi-collinearity in the explanatory variables leading to unstable regression coefficients (and, difficult to interpret). Moreover, in hyperspectral spectrum, the information concerning the chemical specificity is spread over several wavelengths. Therefore, it is not wise to remove this redundancy because this removal affects both relevant and irrelevant hyperspectral information. In this study, the faced challenge is to optimize the estimation of some soil properties by exploiting all the spectral richness of the hyperspectral data by providing complementary rather than redundant information. To this end, a new reliable approach based on hyperspectral data analysis and partial least squares regression is proposed.
