Cette publication propose un inventaire des principaux acteurs qui contribuent ou peuvent contribuer à définir une politique migratoire pour la Belgique ; elle fait aussi le point sur leurs prises de position récentes. Quel est par exemple le point de vue de la FGTB sur une régularisation ? Que pense la FEB d’une nouvelle migration économique ? Que dit le Conseil des Femmes sur l’accueil des primo-arrivants ? Et bien d’autres encore. [less ▲]

Assessing the performance of deep geological repositories for heat-generating radioactive waste requires reliable predictions of the Thermo-Hydro-Mechanical (THM) behaviour of the clay barriers (the buffer material as well as the host rock/clay). This represents an important element of the waste isolation system. In order to provide reasonable assurance that clay barriers will ensure nuclear waste isolation, it is essential to understand their behaviour under a variety of environmental conditions. The phenomena involved are complex, and adequately understanding the constitutive behaviour of clays and modelling their evolution is challenging. The stress-strain material behaviours that need to be understood and modelled include drying and wetting in nonisothermal conditions and heating-cooling in non-saturated conditions. Other aspects should be considered, such as drying induced cracks and the role of the material structure and its multi-porosity. The difficulty of some of these tasks is increased by the fact that some effects are coupled. The fundamental behaviours of clayey materials under the considered THM conditions are first identified and highlighted for deep repository experiments. We then propose a mechanical stress-strain constitutive framework to model the behaviour of clay barriers. This includes aspects such as the thermo-plastic behaviour of saturated and unsaturated materials. In the third part, we show that the proposed framework allows us to experimentally explain observed behaviours and to predict the THM behaviour of clay barriers. [less ▲]

Meningiomas are the second most common type of brain and CNS tumors by histology. Surgery and radiotherapy are main treatment options, but meningiomas may be impossible to adequately resect or may regrow after surgery. In spite of many experimental attempts, there is no generally accepted chemotherapeutic approach. We have studied in a series of meningiomas the expression of the Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4), which apart from its major role as a key factor of the innate immune system, is believed to play a role in tumorigenesis. All meningiomas studied expressed TLR4 mRNA and protein at variable degree. Paclitaxel, a ligand of TLR4, exhibited a dose- and time-dependent growth suppression in both monolayer and spheroid meningioma cell cultures. The knockdown of TLR4 with siRNA in meningioma cell cultures abrogated the inhibitory effect of paclitaxel. The suppressive action of paclitaxel on meningioma cell growth was enhanced in the presence of fluvastatin or the mitogen-actvated protein kinase (ERK1/2) inhibitor PD98059. At least part of the growth suppressive effect was mediated by the induction of apoptosis in meningioma cells by paclitaxel alone or in combination with fluvastatin. In conclusion, our in vitro results suggest that paclitaxel alone or in combination with other inhibitors of cell growth (statins, MAPK inhibitors) could provide a potential tool for the treatment of TLR4 expressing meningiomas.

This study investigated the effect of high CO2 (4%) from embryonic day (ED)10 until ED16 on the acid-base balance and related parameters in the chicken embryo. From ED10 to ED16, blood was taken from a vein from the chorioallantois membrane and was analyzed for pH, partial pressure of CO2, partial pressure of O2 (pO2), [HCO3(-)], [K+], and [Ca2+]. Allantoic fluid was taken for measurement of pH, NH3-N, phosphate, and calcium concentration. The right tibia was ashed, and calcium was measured with atomic absorption spectroscopy. Embryos exposed to high CO2 showed a consistent higher blood pH than control embryos. Notwithstanding this alkalosis, bicarbonate concentration was significantly higher in the CO2 group from ED12 until ED16. Potassium concentration in the blood was significantly higher in the CO2 group from ED11 until ED16. The pH of the allantois was significantly higher on ED14 and ED15. Ammonia N concentration was significantly higher in the CO2-incubated embryos on ED12 and ED13, whereas phosphate did not differ between groups. Calcium per tibia dry weight did not differ between incubation conditions. We can conclude that embryos adapt to high CO2 during the second half of incubation by increasing blood HCO3(-). It appears that this increase in HCO3(-)is mainly the result of the stimulated intracellular exchange of H+ with K+, although temporary reabsorption of HCO3(-)by the kidney cannot be excluded.
