Exercise tests allow evaluating athletic capacity and fitness, following training-induced adaptations and determining causes of poor performance. A retrospective study was conducted over the cases of 40 poor performing Standardbreds referred to an Equine Sports Medicine consultation at a Belgian racetrack. The study aimed at determining if the implementation of a standardised exercise test and determination of specific athletic parameters could discriminate between the poor performers and a group of eight healthy racehorses and help in establishing a diagnosis. After a through clinical examination, the horses were submitted to an exercise test that consisted of 3 bouts of 1500m at increasing speeds with a recovery phase of 500 m in between. Speed and heart rate were continuously monitored and blood lactate concentrations were evaluated after each step. Pre and post-effort blood work and respiratory endoscopy with sampling were done in each horse. Five main causes of poor performance were identified: locomotor, respiratory, cardiac, muscular problems and inadequate training. In the poor performers group, 24 horses suffered from upper and/or lower respiratory disease, 20 from lameness, 4 from cardiac disease, 4 from exercise-induced myopathy and 5 from maladjusted training. More than half of the horses had multiple problems (23 horses). The fitness parameters (V-LA4, V-200) obtained were useful for inter-individual comparisons and discriminated poor performers from healthy controls, whatever the cause of the intolerance. This study confirms the high prevalence of lameness and respiratory diseases as causes of poor performance in racehorses. The field exercise tests were readily performed with minimal equipment and enabled to identify conditions which were not clearly apparent as during the clinical examination at rest. The recovery of maximum information by a thorough questioning of the trainer and selected ancillary examinations was critical to reach a diagnosis. [less ▲]

This paper, which is the sequel of a previous essay published in the same collection, provides an overview of some basic problems related to the notion of a phenomenological metaphysics. The key thesis in the paper is that the very starting point of all "critical" metaphysics should first consist in an intensional interpretation of existential propositions. Starting from the idea (for him distinctive of the phenomenological approach in general) that intensionality with an 's' now needs to be described in terms of the intentionality with a 't', the author tries to outline some implications and consequences of applying the methods used in phenomenology to metaphysical problems. He then briefly surveys some of the possible applications of this view, especially as to the theory of truth. [less ▲]

The prescription of a pharmacological agent concludes most medical visits. The rational basis of drug prescription by the physician relies on numerous pharmacodynamic, pharmacokinetic, pragmatic and economic considerations. However, it is a pity to notice that one patient out of two does not strictly follow the pharmacological treatment as it was prescribed. This article analyses some problems of the patient-doctor relationship, which may reduce medication compliance, and provides practical advice for improving such a situation in order to enhance both efficacy and safety of drug prescribing.

Stimulated Raman adiabatic passage (STIRAP) is a well-studied pump-probe control scheme for manipulating the population of quantum states of atoms or molecules. By encoding the digits to be operated on as "on" or "off" laser input signals we show how STIRAP can be used to implement a finite-state logic machine. The physical conditions required for an effective STIRAP operation are related to the physical conditions expected for a logic machine. In particular, a condition is derived on the mean number of photons that represent an on pulse. A finite-state machine computes Boolean expressions that depend both on the input and on the present state of the machine. With two input signals we show how to implement a full adder where the carry-in digit is stored in the state of the machine. Furthermore, we show that it is possible to store the carry-out digit as the next state and thereby return the machine to a state ready for the next full addition. Such a machine operates as a cyclical full adder. We further show how this full adder can equally well be operated as a full subtractor. To the best of our knowledge this is the first example of a nanosized system that implements a full subtraction. [less ▲]

Two successive batches of 32 fattening pigs per batch were each divided into 2 homogenous groups of 16 pigs fed either a high crude protein (CP) level diet (HP-groups) or a low crude protein level diet balanced with synthetic amino acids (LP-groups). Pigs were raised on straw-based deep litters in separate rooms according to diets. Once a month, the emissions of ammonia (NH3), nitrous oxide (N2O), methane (CH4), carbon dioxide (CO2) and water vapour (H2O) were measured continuously for 6 days consecutively. The mean nitrogen (N) intakes of pigs from HP-groups and LP-groups were 6.83 kg and 5.78 kg per pig respectively with mean initial and final pig body weights of 26.6 and 111.4 kg. There was no significant difference between the daily weight gains with regards to the diet CP content. At the end of the fattening periods, the N-contents of the litters were on average 1.84 kg per pig for the HP-groups and 1.56 kg per pig for the LP-groups. Gaseous emissions in the room with LP-groups were, compared with the emissions in the room with HP-groups, 26.1% lower for NH3 (10.60 vs. 14.35 g per pig per day), 12.8% lower for CH4 (13.12 vs. 15.04 g per pig per day) and 2 times higher for N2O (1.02 vs. 0.52 g per pig per day). The emissions of CO2 and H2O were not significantly different according to the diet CP level. [less ▲]
