The EU-funded PROPATH project addresses the important health issue of prevention of gastrointestinal disorders through probiotics and prebiotics. Seven European laboratories are co-operating in this project, which aims to isolate and characterize the relevant antimicrobial agents to combat Gram-negative bacteria including Helicobacter pylori and Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium. In this paper, the first results on the screening for probiotic or potentially probiotic lactobacilli that exhibit antimicrobial activity towards these Gram-negative pathogenic bacteria are presented. Spot-on-lawn assays, well-diffusion assays and time-kill studies were performed among the lactic acid bacteria strains that were either collected from fermented foods and faeces (breast-fed babies, infants and animals) or isolated from commercial products to investigate whether any of the collected strains were inhibiting growth of or were killing certain indicator bacteria. Strains inhibiting the gastrointestinal pathogens mentioned above were found. Evidence has been obtained that compounds different from organic acids are produced. [less ▲]

Bien que l’économie forestière gabonaise reste largement tributaire de l’okoumé, Aucoumea klaineana, la problématique de la régénération naturelle de cette espèce n’est que rarement prise en compte dans l’aménagement des concessions forestières. Cela est d’autant plus préoccupant que diverses études réalisées à travers le pays mettent en exergue une déficience de sa régénération dans les forêts matures. À titre expérimental, une étude à plus long terme a été entreprise dans une société forestière. Elle a consisté en deux étapes. La première a tenté de définir les conditions propices à l’installation et au développement de peuplements quasi monospécifiques en bordure des routes et bretelles d’exploitation. La seconde a voulu reproduire ces conditions par la réalisation d’essais sylvicoles visant à stimuler la régénération naturelle de l’okoumé. Les densités moyennes obtenues par hectare étaient de 3 800 pieds après cinq mois, tandis qu’après 17 mois elles se maintenaient à 2 500. Les okoumés dominants ont eu une croissance annuelle moyenne supérieure à 2 m. Le plus grand concurrent de l’okoumé est Macaranga monandra, espèce héliophile peu longévive, environ deux fois plus abondante et dont la vitesse de croissance est légèrement supérieure. Les autres espèces sont des concurrents beaucoup plus marginaux pour l’okoumé, en raison soit d’une densité plus faible, soit d’une croissance moindre. Bien que les résultats soient très encourageants et que la technique préconisée soit relativement simple et peu onéreuse, un suivi à plus long terme se justifie avant d’envisager une utilisation de la méthode à une plus grande échelle.

Rosuvastatin (Crestor) has been recently launched in Belgium by AstraZeneca. This new statin is indicated for the treatment of primary hypercholesterolaemia or combined dyslipidaemia, when changes in dietary habits are insufficient. Direct comparative randomised clinical trials with other statins demonstrated that rosuvastatin exerts a more favourable impact on lipid profile. When compared on a mg basis to other statins, rosuvastatin is associated with a greater reduction in total and LDL cholesterol levels and a greater increase of HDL cholesterol concentration, with a similar decrease in triglyceride levels. At the usual dosage of 10 mg, rosuvastatin allowed to reduce LDL cholesterol below recommended target levels for at risk patients among almost 80% of treated individuals in phase III clinical trials. If necessary, the daily dosage may be increased to 20 mg, or up to 40 mg (maximal dose), mostly in case of severe familial hypercholesterolaemia. Safety profile is good and similar to that of other commercialised statins. Rosuvastatin is currently evaluated in an extensive programme of randomised clinical trials (Galaxy programme) in order to demonstrate its efficacy in both prevention of atherosclerosis and reduction of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality.

A 4-year experiment has been conducted on finishing Belgian Blue cull cows of double-muscled type in order to study the effects of diets containing adequate levels of metabolizable protein, but either normal (NENP), low (LENP) or medium (MENP) levels of metabolizable energy, on animal performance, carcass and meat characteristics, and plasma metabolites and hormones. The LENP diet was offered during the whole (LENP group) or second half of the finishing (NENP-LENP groups), and the MENP diet during the whole finishing (MENP group). The degree of fatness required for the slaughter of animals from NENP groups was close to 4.5 (scale from 0 (very lean) to 5 (very fat)). In each underfed group, the slaughter of the animals was synchronized to that of NENP cows, by degressive degree of fatness. The same duration of finishing was thus obtained for all groups. The experimental feeding strategies reduced the amounts of fat deposited in the carcass and the meat while muscle deposition was remarkably preserved. The proportions of saturated and monounsaturated fatty acids in intramuscular fat were also decreased while their proportions increased in plasma free fatty acids. Plasma insulin levels were also reduced and those of IGF-1 were, surprisingly, maintained. The low energy diet promoted thus the settlement of a discrete lipolytic state while high levels of IGF-1 preserved muscle deposition. This feeding strategy should be evaluated in other breeds of cattle. [less ▲]

Despite commonly accepted ideas, evaporative drying does not always completely destroy the pore texture of phenolic gel. This work shows that very porous carbon materials can be synthesized by evaporative drying and pyrolysis of aqueous resorcinol-formaldehyde gels provided that the operating variables are correctly chosen. Moreover, in this manner monoliths can be easily produced. The pore texture of the materials was studied before and after pyrolysis in order to determine which synthesis and/or pyrolysis variables have an influence on the final texture of the carbon. Results show that it is possible to tailor the morphology of these materials by varying the initial pH of the precursors solution in a narrow range. Micro-macroporous, micro-mesoporous, microporous or totally non-porous carbon materials were obtained. The specific surface area is independent from the initial pH whereas the total void volume varies from 0.4 to 1.4 cm(3)/g when the initial pH decreases from 6.25 to 5.45. These materials can be used as catalysts supports or for electrochemical applications, the texture control being an interesting advantage. (C) 2004 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved. [less ▲]

Ureteral ectopia is a congenital abnormality in which one or both ureters does not open into the bladder. This is the most common cause of urinary incontinence in the immature bitch, but is rarely diagnosed in the male dog. Some breeds are predisposed (Siberian Husky, Labrador, Golden Retriever). Typical clinical signs are a continuous (but sometimes intermittent) leakage of urine since birth, although micturition can be normal. Other associated congenital abnormalities can be present (hydronephrosis, double vagina, cryptorchidism). Diagnostic techniques include excretory urography coupled with a pneumocystography, vaginourethrography, cystoscopy, vaginoscopy, and ultrasonography. Ectopic ureters can be unilateral (most commonly) or bilateral, and they are either intramural or extramural. Surgical correction is the treatment of choice. After a successful surgery, some patients can still show some degree of incontinence, due to the presence of urethral sphincter mechanism incompetence. This residual incontinence can be resolved in the majority of the cases with the use of alpha-adrenergic agents. [less ▲]
