This article sheds light on the fact that the commensality remains a fundamental aspect of eating in French culture. However, at the same time, the expansion of the individualization and medicalization of the act of eating during the latest decades impacted the social representations of food. We will first place dietary practices into a general context in which the relationship to food tends to be individualised and in which health-related issues remain an important aspect of the discourse about food on internet...

INTRODUCTION: Adenomyosis is defined as the presence of endometrial glands and stroma within the myometrium. The true prevalence is unknown and has been reported to range from 1 to 70%. It has a significantly negative impact on women's quality of life, causing abnormal uterine bleeding, dysmenorrhea, and chronic pelvic pain. The definitive treatment for adenomyosis is hysterectomy, although it does not contemplate patients who wish to preserve their fertility. The aim of this paper is to discuss the latest evidence on the surgical techniques for the treatment of adenomyosis published in medical-scientific databases...

REVIEW
Sissi Miguel, Alain Hehn, Frédéric Bourgaud
Plant carnivory results from the adaptation of plants to their environment. The capture and digestion of preys, followed by their assimilation by the plant is a source of additional nutrients to overcome scarce nutrient in poor soils. Nepenthes are highly studied carnivorous plants and have developed a number of ecological traits which have attracted the attention of plant biologists. Multiple adaptive strategies developed by these plants make them a source of inspiration for many applications ranging from therapeutic treatments to biocontrol solution in agriculture...

Therapeutic antibodies are widely used for disease detection and specific treatments. However, as an exogenous protein, these antibodies can be detected by the human immune system and elicit a response that can lead to serious illnesses. Therapeutic antibodies can be engineered through antibody humanization, which aims to maintain the specificity and biological function of the original antibodies, and reduce immunogenicity. However, the antibody drug effect is synchronously reduced as more exogenous parts are replaced by human antibodies...

Mark Kenneally, Arturo Casado, Jordan Santos-Concejero
This review aimed to examine the current evidence for three primary training intensity distribution types; 1) Pyramidal Training, 2) Polarised Training and 3) Threshold Training. Where possible, we calculated training intensity zones relative to the goal race pace, rather than physiological or subjective variables. We searched 3 electronic databases in May 2017 (PubMed, Scopus, and Web of Science) for original research articles. After analysing 493 resultant original articles, studies were included if they met the following criteria: a) participants were middle- or long-distance runners; b) studies analysed training intensity distribution in the form of observational reports, case studies or interventions; c) studies were published in peer-reviewed journals and d) studies analysed training programs with a duration of 4 weeks or longer...

During the past few decades, Chinese endoscopic neurosurgery has achieved rapid development that has been synchronous with the rest of the world. The development history of Chinese endoscopic neurosurgery can be divided into three stages as follows: cognition and initial stage (1964-1995), exploration and maturity stage (1995-2006) and rapid development and promotion stage (2006-present). In the first stage, we mainly began to become aware of endoscopic neurosurgery from the translation and review of foreign literature...
