Didelphys uterus with imperforated obstructed hemivagina is a rare condition. Most often, it is diagnosed a few months after the menarche. Hematocolpos, hematometria and sometimes hematosalpinx are responsible for pelvic pain and dysmenorrhea. Symptoms can be delayed when a fistulisation from the hematocolpos to permeable contralateral vagina is present. Sometimes, diagnosis is not made before adulthood during an infection of the hematocolpos. Useful additional exams include pelvic ultrasound and, in some cases, MRI, which is the best exam to precisely describe the type of malformation. An ipsilateral agenesia of the kidney is always associated. Hysterography can usually demonstrate the fistulous courses. Treatment consists in a large resection of the vaginal septum in order to allow a permanent drainage of the hemiuterus. A laparoscopy should be performed to check for the presence of associated tubal or pelvic damage. [less ▲]

Management of diabetes mellitus can be responsible for cutaneous adverse events. For example, lipoatrophy or lipohypertrophy can develop at the site of insulin injections. Lipohypertrophy remains a frequent complication of insulin therapy irrespective of the insulin source and mode of administration. Lipoatrophy at insulin injection sites is considered to be an immune complex-mediated inflammatory lesion; however, it has become a rare event since the advent of human insulin. Nowadays, continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII) using a portable pump and/or injections of insulin analogs with an altered amino acid sequence compared with native insulin may cause lipodystrophy in diabetic patients. Some case reports describe the recovery of lipoatrophy following the use of CSII and/or short-acting insulin analogs. Conversely, exceptional cases of lipoatrophy have occurred in patients receiving lispro insulin analog via CSII. Lipodystrophy reactions remain a potential problem when managing diabetic patients with new insulin therapy technologies. [less ▲]

This paper addresses a new, unified thermomechanical constitutive model for unsaturated soils through a coupled study. In the context of elastoplasticity and the critical state theory, the model uses the concepts of multi-mechanism and bounding surface theory. This advanced constitutive approach involves thermo-plasticity of saturated and unsaturated soils. Bishop’s effective stress framework is adopted to represent the stress state in the soil. This stress is linked to the water retention curve, which is represented by an elasto-plastic model. Attention is focused particularly on the coupling relations inferred from this unified thermo-hydro-mechanical (THM) study. Finally, the theoretical aspects of the paper are supported by comparisons between numerical simulations and experimental results. [less ▲]

Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) commonly participate in herpesvirus entry. They are thought to provide a reversible attachment to cells that promotes subsequent receptor binding. Murine gamma-herpesvirus-68 (MHV-68) infection of fibroblasts and epithelial cells is highly GAG-dependent. This is a function of the viral gp150, in that gp150-deficient mutants are much less GAG-dependent than wild-type. Here we show that the major MHV-68 GAG-binding protein is not gp150 but gp70, a product of ORF4. Surprisingly, ORF4-deficient MHV-68 showed normal cell binding and was more sensitive than wild-type to inhibition by soluble heparin rather than less. Thus, the most obvious viral GAG interaction made little direct contribution to infection. Indeed, a large fraction of the virion gp70 had its GAG-binding domain removed by post-translational cleavage. ORF4 may therefore act mainly to absorb soluble GAGs and prevent them from engaging gp150 prematurely. In contrast to gp70, gp150 bound poorly to GAGs, implying that it provides little in the way of adhesion. We hypothesize that it acts instead as a GAG-sensitive switch that selectively activates MHV-68 entry at cell surfaces. [less ▲]

In the double-muscled Belgian Blue beef (DM-BBB) breed, selection focuses on muscular conformation and not on weight gain and higher weight. There are very few studies on growth in the DM-BBB using field records. Therefore, farms have no available useful figures on weight at fixed ages and weight gain for the DM-BBB. This study describes and evaluates live weights of DM-BBB animals. All the data were gathered on farms in Belgium. It was found that a male DM-BBB weighs an average of 51 kg at birth, 98 kg at 3 months, 242 kg at 7 months, 430 kg at 13 months and 627 kg at 20 months. Between the age of 7 and 20 months, weight gain is more than 1200 g a day. Females weigh 47 kg at birth, 96 kg at 3 months, 189 kg at 7 months and 332 kg at 13 months. For males, estimates of heritability for weights at 7, 13 and 20 months were between 0.21 and 0.36. The heritability for weight gain between 13 and 20 months was 0.13. This demonstrates that it is possible to select for higher weights and for increased growth between 13 and 20 months. Animals having high weights at a young age (7 and 13 months) tend to have also high weight at slaughtering age (20 months; r(g) between 0.81 and 0.98), but no additional growth between 13 and 20 months (r(g) between -0.09 and 0.00). High weight at 20 months is partially due to growth between 13 and 20 months (r(g) = 0.49). [less ▲]

Background. The Belgian Section of Transplant Coordinators, created in 1997 under the auspices of the Belgian Transplant Society, is in charge of the collection of the national data about donor/procurement activities. Methods. Data are collected in all Belgian transplant centers. An annual report is finalized by combining these data with data from the Eurotransplant database. Results. An increase of both potential donors (n 501, 14.4%) and effective donors (n 273, 16.7%) was observed in 2006 versus 2005. Among effective donors, 28 were non–heart-beating donors (10.25%). Overall donor ratio was 26.26 donors per million inhabitants. Within potential donors, absence of organ harvesting was due to medical contraindications (28%), family refusal (13%), or legal refusal (2%). Donor mean age was 46.4 years and mean organs/donor was 3.21 1.7. An overall reduction of Belgian waiting lists was observed in 2006 as compared with 2005 ( 5.7% for kidney, 25.7% for liver, 9.4% for heart, 6.7% for lung, and 11.7% for pancreas), while waiting list mortality was 18% for liver, 11% for heart, and 7% for lung. As compared with 2005, transplant activities increased for kidney (n 485, 24.3%), heart lungs (n 73, 7.3%), and lungs (n 83, 39.4%) but decreased for liver (n 236, 2.1%). Living donation represented 8.45% for kidney ( 28.1% vs 2005) and 8% for liver transplantation ( 29.6%). Conclusion. Globally, a marked increase of procurement and transplant activities was observed in 2006, allowing to limit waiting list and waiting list mortality. Further increase of living donor activity and non–heart-beating donation remains necessary to extend the donor pool. [less ▲]
