Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is increasingly performed and represents a relatively safe alternative treatment for high risk patients denied to surgical aortic valve replacement. TAVI is performed at the University Hospital of Liege since July 2008 with the Medtronic CoreValve Revalving® system by femoral or subclavian access. This paper exposed the technique of TAVI and the nursing care required after this procedure. [less ▲]

Randomised controlled trials play a key role in evidence-based medicine as far as the assessment of both efficacy and safety of drugs is concerned. Various strategies are used to avoid physician's inertia and to combat patient's non compliance, two pitfalls that may hinder the demonstration of the therapeutic efficacy of the drug. Clinical inertia may be limited by titration, forced or optional, driven by therapeutic targets, or by the use, if necessary, of rescue medications. Compliance may be verified by "pill count". This simple technique allows to exclude non compliant patients when they are detected during the placebo run-in period before randomisation or not to take into account patients with poor compliance in the final evaluation by using a statistical analysis restricted to individuals who have strictly adhered to the study protocol ("per protocol analysis"). Self-monitoring and patient's empowerment in the treatment also contribute to improve drug compliance. Clinicians may take advantage of these approaches derived from clinical trials to improve their daily practice. [less ▲]

The binding mode of telomestatin to G-quadruplex DNA has been investigated using electrospray mass spectrometry, by detecting the intact complexes formed in ammonium acetate. The mass measurements show the incorporation of one extra ammonium ion in the telomestatin complexes. Experiments on telomestatin alone also show that the telomestatin alone is able to coordinate cations in a similar way as a crown ether. Finally, density functional theory calculations suggest that in the G-quadruplex-telomestatin complex, potassium or ammonium cations are located between the telomestatin and a G-quartet. This study underlines that monovalent cation coordination capabilities should be integrated in the rational design of G-quadruplex binding ligands. [less ▲]

The aim of this study was to estimate the genetic parameters of the mid-infrared (MIR) milk spectrum represented by 1,060 data points per sample. The dimensionality of traits was reduced by principal components analysis. Therefore, 46 principal components describing 99.03% of the phenotypic variability were used to create 46 new traits. Variance components were estimated using canonical transformation. Heritability ranged from 0 to 0.35. Twenty-five out of 46 studied traits showed a permanent environment variance greater than genetic variance. Eight traits showed heritability greater than 0.10. Variances of original spectral traits were obtained by back transformation. Heritabilities for each spectral data points ranged from 0.003 to 0.42. In particular, 3 MIR regions showing moderate to high heritability estimates were of potential genetic interest. Heritabilities for specific wave numbers, linked with common milk traits (e.g., lipids, lactose), were similar to those estimated for these traits. This research confirms the genetic variability of the MIR milk spectrum and, therefore, the genetic variation of milk components. The objective of this study was to better understand the genetics of milk composition and, maybe in the future, to select animals to improve milk quality. [less ▲]

Undoubtedly, biotechnology has a tremendous impact on our daily lives. As a result of this and in parallel to the advancement of knowledge in this field of applied research, consumer awareness of the potential benefits and risks of this technology has steadily increased, leading to a thorough investigation of the public perception of biotechnology in the past years. Indeed, it has become clear that it is in the general interest of science and especially of applied research to inform the public of its advances. A promising next step is to strengthen biotechnology communication in scholastic institutions. In this paper, we investigate the perception of biotechnology in a specific target group, namely high-school students in the 16-20-year-old age range. We conducted a questionnaire-based survey on a total of 1410 students in six European countries to investigate students' perception, concern, scientific knowledge, and awareness. Our data revealed some unexpected patterns of acceptance and concern about biotechnology. Knowledge analysis indicated that pupils lack specific knowledge about biotechnological applications and their interest in biotechnology appeared to be linked to knowledge. Analysis of specific questions about teaching practices at schools suggests that a better targeted choice in media as vehicles for information together with selected speakers could be instrumental in increasing students' interest in science and more specifically in biotechnology.

Plus de cinquante ans après leur mise sur le marché, les sulfamidés hypoglycémiants font toujours partie du traitement de base du diabète non insulinodépendant. A côté de leurs remarquables propriétés pharmacologiques, ces produits ont, à différentes reprises, été tenus responsables d’hypoglycémies sévères survenant de manière inexpliquée chez des sujets non diabétiques. Ce type d’hypoglycémie, qualifiée de factice, est notamment fréquemment retrouvée dans le syndrome de Munchausen, trouble psychiatrique poussant le malade à mimer une pathologie. Cette hypoglycémie est associée à un hyperinsulinisme endogène simulant une pathologie endocrine très rare, l’insulinome. Nous souhaitons faire connaître aux Cliniciens l’intérêt de la recherche et du dosage sanguin des sulfamidés hypoglycémiants dans le cadre du diagnostic différentiel des hyperinsulinismes. La mise en évidence d’une hypoglycémie induite par ces médicaments constitue un élément intéressant pour orienter le diagnostic et éventuellement éviter une pancréatectomie en cas de forte suspicion d’insulinome. La méthode analytique développée au laboratoire s’appuie sur la chromatographie liquide ultra performante couplée à la spectrométrie de masse tandem (UPLC -MS -MS ). Par cette technique, on peut mettre en évidence dans le sang une dizaine de sulfonylurées et le répaglinide. Elle constituera à l’avenir une méthode de choix face à toute suspicion de mésusage des sulfonylurées. [less ▲]
