A one year epidemiological study was carried out between February 2005 and January 2006 in the southern part of Belgium to assess the Campylobacter prevalence in free-range broiler production. Three successive broiler flocks from six Belgian farms were investigated for the presence of Campylobacter spp. during the rearing period. Each flock was visited four times, before and after the outdoor rearing period. During each visit, samples were taken in the broiler house (litter, cecal droppings, water-lines, feed, anteroom) as well as from the outer rearing environment (open-air range). The Campylobacter detection in all samples was carried out according to the ISO 10272 standard. Identification was based on colonial morphology, microscopic examination, and biochemical tests. PCR multiplex was used for genetic confirmation. Campylobacter jejuni was the main species isolated from all contaminated samples. Overall, mixed infections C. jejuni/C. coli represented 40.6%, while C. jejuni and C. coli represented 46.9% and 12.5% of chicken samples respectively. A 100% flock contamination was observed in the 6 farms during the summer/autumn period, whereas only 66.7% and 33.3% of the flocks became Campylobacter-positive in spring and winter respectively, at the end of the rearing period. Half of contaminated flocks were infected before chickens have access to the open-air range. Environmental samples, especially the open-air range soil, were found to be Campylobacter-positive before flock infection. The other potential sources of contamination were delivery tray, anteroom floor and water-lines. Other animal productions like cattle on the farm, no applied rodent control, no cleaning and disinfection of water-lines between flocks, no detergent used for cleansing and thinning were recorded as risk factors. In conclusion, the contact with the environment, particularly the access to an open-air range, appeared to be the major way of Campylobacter contamination of chickens in free-range broiler production.

The swimming movements of C. gariepinus larvae were recorded with a high-speed camera (400, 500 and 800 fps) from 0 to 336 hours post-hatching. Movements of adult fish were also recorded to provide information on the last developmental stage. Seven landmarks positioned on the fish midline were used during tail beating to determine various parameters during ontogeny and, on the basis of these parameters, to describe the first appearance of swimming movements and their development and efficiency during growth. Larvae were unable to swim at hatching (4 mm total length). Swimming movements were established at 48 hours posthatching when the fish measured between 7 and 8 mm total length and the yolk sac was more than 95% absorbed. At this stage, lateral excursion of the head appeared strongly reduced (from 13% to 6% of the total length). The efficiency of swimming movements increased throughout ontogeny, as did the homogeneity of the speed of the propulsive wave. Spontaneous swimming speed of 1 to 10 TLs-1 were observed in early stage (8-12 hPH). The various speed induced significant variations in parameters such as the amplitude of lateral head movements, swimming efficiency, and body rigidity. No major change was observed at the theoretical flow-regime transition. [less ▲]

Shielding of buried three phase high voltage cables can be done by placing the cables in conducting ferromagnetic U-shaped gutters covered by plates. In case of a perfect electrical contact between adjacent gutters and between adjacent cover plates, the induced currents in the shield efficiently reduce the field generated in the vicinity of the cables. However, as a perfect contact cannot be guaranteed, it is useful to quantify the effect of a bad electrical contact on the shielding performance. From 2D FEM, 3D FEM and experiments, it is observed that a bad contact does not influence significantly the shielding if the axial length of the plates is relatively long compared to their other dimensions.

Under in vitro culture conditions, oxidative modifications of cell components via increased reactive oxygen species (ROS) represent a major culture induced stress. Anti-oxidant systems such as glutathione (GSH) can attenuate the deleterious effects of oxidative stress by scavenging ROS. It has been suggested that GSH content in oocytes may serve as a reservoir protecting the zygote and the early embryos from oxidative damage before genomic activation and de novo GSH synthesis occur. Addition of low molecular weight compounds to culture media, such as cysteamine, can increase GSH levels by increasing cysteine uptake. Quite naturally, effects of supplementation of in vitro maturation (IVM) media with low molecular weight thiols have been studied in various species. This article reviews the use of cysteamine supplementation for IVM, its effects on maturation rates and further embryo development. [less ▲]

Non sperm cells concentration is higher in unfreezable semen. A relation between non-sperm cells in fresh semen and MPO and post thawing quality has been observed. Neutrophil Elastase seems to have no effect on semen characteristics and to be not associated with on-sperm cells and freezability. [less ▲]

The mechanical behaviors of geomaterials are significantly affected by the presence of voids or cracks-like defects. The modeling of such behavior is classically performed by considering purely macroscopic or micromechanically-based damage models. In the perspective of applications in civil engineering or in geomechanics, we propose in this paper to evaluate a homogenization approach, based on Mori-Tanaka scheme, applied to micro-cracked materials. In order to provide an appropriate interpretation of the nonlinear behavior at macro-scale, the crack-induced damage is coupled to friction phenomena on closed cracks lips. The predictions of the coupled model are first analyzed on laboratory tests performed on Callovo-Oxfordian Clay. Then, they are extended to a numerical analysis of excavation damaged zones around tunnels [less ▲]

Introduction: For several years, respiratory muscles strength can be assessed by various non-invasive or invasive methods. This evaluation is becoming essential in the context of several respiratory diseases. Methods: In a randomized study, 40 healthy subjects purchased respiratory tests (Sniff Nasal Inspiratory Pressure (SNIP), peak inspiratory pressure (PImax) and maximal expiratory pressure (PEmax)) includes a measure of their forced vital capacity and strength of respiratory muscles. Influence of various anthropometric parameters on respiratory muscles strength was assessed through the Macro 5000®, with voluntary and non-invasive tests (SNIP, PImax and PEmax). Results: Gender, height and weight have a significant influence on respiratory muscle strength. Conclusions: Macro 5000® allows the measurement of standardized and reproducible data on respiratory muscles strength (SNIP, PImax and PEmax), in a protocol of about thirty minutes. It also checks the influence of different factors when measuring respiratory muscles strength. [less ▲]
