In Belgium, the Boom Clay is being considered as a potential host formation for the disposal of nuclear waste. Part of the safety assessment and feasibility studies of a potential nuclear waste disposal consists of hydrogeological modeling. In order to model the groundwater flow and possible radionuclide transport in the clay, the spatial distribution of the hydraulic conductivity of the clay has to be assessed. In this study, geostatistical methods are used to characterize the hydraulic conductivity field. More specific, direct sequential simulation of the hydraulic conductivity is carried out, using measurements of hydraulic conductivity and 4 types of soft data or secondary variables: resistivity logs, gamma ray logs, grain size measurements and descriptions of the lithology. The primary and secondary information is analyzed with geostatistical tools and combined to generate 100 fields of the hydraulic conductivity of the Boom Clay. Next, each field is input to a groundwater flow model to predict the advective travel time of constituents released from the disposed waste in the Boom Clay to the aquifers surrounding the Boom Clay. Statistical analysis of the ensemble of model predictions results in a predictive distribution for the advective travel time. This distribution reflects the uncertainty of the advective travel time that results from the uncertainty of the spatial distribution of the hydraulic conductivity of the Boom Clay [less ▲]

De jeunes pousses de Peuplier Ghoy ont été maintenues artificiellement inclinées pendant des durées croissantes, afin d’induire la formation de tissus de bois de tension et de bois opposé en réaction au stimulus gravitationnel. Il apparaît que ces pousses sont susceptibles de percevoir et de réagir à un stimulus extrêmement bref à l’échelle d’une période de végétation. Après un temps de présentation de 6 heures, l’ensemble des pousses ont formé un arc de bois opposé. Toutefois, sur la face supérieure, un temps compris entre 24 et 48 heures est nécessaire pour qu’elles perçoivent la modification de leur état d’équilibre et se mettent à former du bois de tension. Après un temps de latence de 48 heures, la formation de fibres gélatineuses est déjà observée sur la face supérieure des tiges. L’augmentation de la durée du stimulus a des répercussions sur le nombre de fibres gélatineuses et sur l’angle d’ouverture de l’arc de bois de tension. Sur la face inférieure, les fibres de bois opposé se forment à un rythme moins soutenu, conduisant à une excentricité de la moelle dans la section de la tige. Le redressement des pousses est effectif après une durée de stimulus comprise entre 4 et 8 jours. [less ▲]

The modulatory role of endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) on heart contraction, relaxation and rate is examined in light of recent studies using genetic deletion or overexpression in mice under specific conditions. Unstressed eNOS-/- hearts in basal conditions exhibit a normal inotropic and lusitropic function, with either decreased or unchanged heart rate. Under stimulation with catecholamines, eNOS-/- mice predominantly show a potentiation in their beta-adrenergic inotropic and lusitropic responsiveness. A similar phenotype is observed in beta 3-adrenoceptor deficient mice, pointing to a key role of this receptor subtype for eNOS coupling. The effect of eNOS on the muscarinic cholinergic modulation of cardiac function probably operates in conjunction with other NO-independent mechanisms, the persistence of which may explain the apparent dispensability of this isoform for the effect of acetylcholine in some eNOS-/- mouse strains. eNOS-/- hearts submitted to short term ischaemia-reperfusion exhibit variable alterations in systolic and diastolic function and infarct size, while those submitted to myocardial infarction present a worsened ventricular remodelling, increased 1 month mortality and loss of benefit from ACE inhibitor or angiotensin II type I receptor antagonist therapy. Although non-conditional eNOS gene deletion may engender phenotypic adaptations (e.g. ventricular hypertrophy resulting from chronic hypertension, or upregulation of the other NOS isoforms) potentially confounding the interpretation of comparative studies, the use of eNOS-/- mice has undoubtedly advanced (and will probably continue to improve) our understanding of the complex role of eNOS (in conjunction with the other NOSs) in the regulation of cardiac function. The challenge is now to confirm the emerging paradigms in human cardiac physiology and hopefully translate them into therapy. [less ▲]

Over the last decades little work has been conducted on the environmental behaviour and effects of perfluorinated organochemicals (FOCs). These chemicals are commonly used as solvents, surfactants, cosmetics and are applied in fire foam extinguishers. Recent findings have shown that FOCs (with perfluorooctane sulfonic acid - PFOS - as the most important representative) are detected in organisms living in industrialized as well as in remote areas. The fact that PFOS is hardly biodegradable, clearly accumulates in the liver and blood of top predators and the fact that little information is available on the toxic properties of PFOS, makes this chemical an environmental pollutant of primary concern. In the present study we measured PFOS concentrations in seven marine mammals stranded on the Belgian, French and Dutch North Sea coast between 1994 and 2000. PFOS concentrations were measured in liver and kidney tissue using combined liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS). Detectable PFOS concentrations (up to 820.60 ng/g) were found in harbour porpoises, white-beaked, white-sided and striped dolphins, sperm whales and harbour seals. In fin whale and hooded seal concentrations were below the detection limit of 10 ng/g. PFOS levels in female porpoise livers were significant higher than those in males. The present results show clearly the difference in accumulation pattern of PFOS compared to that of persistent organochlorine chemicals. In order to evaluate the interspecies differences, we developed PFOS-trophic level relationships based on stable nitrogen and carbon isotope ratios. Animals that display the highest trophic positions (highest d15N) have the highest PFOS levels. The different feeding ecology of these species (inshore versus offshore) also seems to contribute to differences in PFOS concentrations. Next to the presentation of PFOS concentrations in marine mammals of the North Sea, the possible toxicological effects of perfluorinated compounds are discussed. [less ▲]

Persisting chronic edema following postoperative free flap transfer is a common complication. We report 3 cases of successful treatment by selective arterial embolization of the feeding arterial branches without side effect. One session embolization is advocated as a first line treatment of this condition. [less ▲]

Dom Gabriel Gerberon (1628-1711) publie en 1688 un petit ouvrage in-12 intitulé La Règle des mœurs contre les fausses maximes de la morale corrompue. Ce volume s’intègre dans la longue polémique autour de la casuistique et du probabilisme. Il défend vigoureusement la position des rigoristes, en parfait accord avec l’argumentation pascalienne et port-royaliste. Mais le but que poursuit Gerberon dans son ouvrage n’est pas de rédiger un abrégé de morale pratique. L’auteur entend plutôt analyser de manière critique les différents principes, critères et moyens par lesquels les individus parviennent à la connaissance et à l’application des principes de morale. Gerberon met en évidence le rôle central de la conscience dans ce processus et s’attache à en détailler les tenants et les aboutissants. Au cours de son exposé, qui constitue un plaidoyer pour les droits de la conscience, il s’appuye sur les analyses thomistes classiques, mais en les rappelant dans un contexte polémique au sein d’un siècle absolutiste, il développe un discours audacieux, dont le caractère individualiste résonne d’accents port-royalistes.
