Authors: Buguet A, Gati Ouonkoye R, Bogui P, Cespuglio R Abstract Sleeping habits and morningness-eveningness questionnaires (chronotype), and polysomnography (internal sleep organization) were proposed to healthy volunteers living under natural climates from different locations in West Africa (Niger, Côte d'Ivoire) and Central Africa (Angola, Congo). Under the Sahelian dry climate, 138 Niger medical students (130 had afternoon naps) completed 1792 sleep questionnaires during 7-day sessions in the cool-dry and hot-dry seasons. As everywhere else on Earth, daily sleep lasted 7 to 8hours. In Abidjan (hot-humid ...

Efficient T cell responses require the firm adhesion of T cells to their targets, e.g., virus-infected cells, which depends on T cell receptor (TCR)–mediated activation of β2-integrins. Gαs-coupled receptor agonists are known to have immunosuppressive effects, but their impact on TCR-mediated integrin activation is unknown. Using multimers of peptide major histocompatibility complex molecules (pMHC) and of ICAM-1—the ligand of β2-integrins—we show that the Gαs-coupled receptor agonists isoproterenol, epinephrine, norepinephrine, prostaglandin (PG) E2, PGD2, and adenosine strongly inh...

Better treatment options, dietary conditions and (perhaps) less stress could make the life of the rich also healthier. However, when it comes to longevity and aging, do they really have better chances? Can the upper 0.1 percent secure their health for long decades or even reverse the process of growing old? Could society somehow also benefit from the quest of the richest for longevity? Are health and longevity on the shopping list? You can have an awful lot of things with money. For a starter, you can buy ice cream or Nutella, which are synonymous to self-love, so the Beatles was only partly right in singing that you can&r...

Introduction Earthquakes are spontaneous events that constitute one of the most deadly naturally triggered disasters, which can cause extensive fatalities, injuries, disabilities, displacement, physiological distress, extensive property damage and devastating economic losses1,2,3. Earthquakes are a result of sudden energy releases in the earth’s crust, which create seismic waves that result in the ground shaking4. They are often followed by a series of aftershocks or violent shakes, which can have a significant impact and do damage especially to already weakened buildings and other essential physical infrastructure. ...
