Schlieffen réfléchit à la possibilité d’un passage par la Belgique depuis fin 1896 et la première trace écrite d’une stratégie de débordement de l’aile gauche française par le nord se trouve dans un Denkschrift rédigé par lui le 2 août 1897. Toutefois, à ce moment, il n’est pas encore question pour Schlieffen de concrétiser ses réflexions dans le plan allemand officiel car il lui faut vaincre deux obstacles majeurs. Primo, la nécessité de créer un nombre de corps d’armée suffisant pour que la réalisation du mouvement tournant par la Belgique se fasse sans trop dégarnir les fronts d’Alsace-Lorraine et de Russie. Secundo, Schlieffen ne peut aligner de nombreuses divisions face à la Belgique que grâce à un réseau ferroviaire suffisamment développé dans l’Eiffel allemand. Le développement des lignes de chemin de fer dans la zone frontalière belgo-allemande offre de nouvelles perspectives stratégiques en cas de guerre future. [less ▲]

The eradication of poverty and hunger is the first of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) established by the United ations. One of the Rwanda’s commitments is the fulfillment of this goal as indicated in its own long term Vision 2020 aimed at enabling Rwandans to emerge from under-development and poverty status by achieving economic growth objectives in combination with social indicators objectives. As it has been researched that the major cause of poverty in developing countries is the high rate of their population growth, this paper is aimed at assessing the fertility preferences and the level of family planning in Rwanda as a tool to poverty eradication. The paper also presents some challenges and some other pathways to improve the socioeconomic welfare of Rwandan population. In this paper descriptive methods have been used to present and analyze data and a Pearson Chi square test has been used to study the association between variables. The results shows that the knowledge of contraception is universal (99%) but the use of contraception methods for family planning is still very low (37%). On the average fertility preferences are 3.2 children which are good if realized. The general conclusion that emerges from the study is that in order to reduce poverty, family planning is a must but lot more are to be done. Among other things, a focus on increasing rural income and agriculture output. [less ▲]

OBJECTIVE: We investigated the association between the proportion of long-chain n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) in plasma phospholipids from blood samples drawn at enrollment and subsequent change in body weight. Sex, age, and BMI were considered as potential effect modifiers. METHOD: A total of 1,998 women and men participating in the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC) were followed for a median of 4.9 years. The associations between the proportion of plasma phospholipid long-chain n-3 PUFA and change in weight were investigated using mixed-effect linear regression. RESULTS: The proportion of long-chain n-3 PUFA was not associated with change in weight. Among all participants, the 1-year weight change was -0.7 g per 1% point higher long-chain n-3 PUFA level (95% confidence interval: -20.7 to 19.3). The results when stratified by sex, age, or BMI groups were not systematically different. CONCLUSION: The results of this study suggest that the proportion of long-chain n-3 PUFA in plasma phospholipids is not associated with subsequent change in body weight within the range of exposure in the general population.

The propensity of protein molecules to self-assemble into highly ordered, fibrillar aggregates lies at the heart of understanding many disorders ranging from Alzheimer's disease to systemic lysozyme amyloidosis. In this paper we use highly accurate kinetic measurements of amyloid fibril growth in combination with spectroscopic tools to quantify the effect of modifications in solution conditions and in the amino acid sequence of human lysozyme on its propensity to form amyloid fibrils under acidic conditions. We elucidate and quantify the correlation between the rate of amyloid growth and the population of nonnative states, and we show that changes in amyloidogenicity are almost entirely due to alterations in the stability of the native state, while other regions of the global free-energy surface remain largely unmodified. These results provide insight into the complex dynamics of a macromolecule on a multidimensional energy landscape and point the way for a better understanding of amyloid diseases. [less ▲]

Cerebral activity associated with recollection and familiarity in 28 patients with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and 17 healthy controls was directly measured in an event-related fMRI experiment during performance of a recognition memory task with the process dissociation procedure. Brain regions associated to recollection were evidenced by contrasting activations for inclusion and exclusion conditions whereas brain regions related to familiarity were explored with the mean effect of the two conditions (at P < .05 corrected). Twelve patients had null recollection estimates (AD-), whereas 16 patients did experience some recollection although significantly less than controls (AD+). In AD+ and controls, recollection activated the posterior cingulate cortex (PCC). In contrast, familiarity estimates were equivalent in the 3 groups and were associated with brain activations around the intraparietal sulcus (IPS). Thus, in AD, impaired recollection is related to damage of the PCC whereas preserved familiarity is supported by the IPS. [less ▲]

The present energy crisis and the awareness of the human impact on climate change have boosted the public debate on the accelerated deployment of renewable energy sources. The objective of this research project is to analyse and assess the landscape capacity and social attitudes towards wind energy parks in Belgium, especially in non-urban and non-industrial sites. This research project starts from the observation that a sustainable production of energy, relying on renewable resources, should go hand in hand with a sustainable societal support for the use of these renewable sources. Experiences from neighbouring countries showed that the societal support depends of the regional landscape capacity and the social attitudes towards wind energy parks. In this research project both quantitative and qualitative research techniques will be used to: (1) measure the landscape capacity in relation to the location of wind energy parks in Belgium, (2) to gain insight in the way attitudes towards wind energy parks are socially constructed and reproduced.

Transient bone marrow edema of the hip is characterized by moderate homogeneous low MR signal intensity with ill-defined margins that involves at least a portion of the femoral head. Spin echo T1-weighted images are helpful to exclude other underlying diseases (tumor, infection, necrosis from systemic origin...), for which marrow edema is secondary or no epiphyseal in location. High-resolution fat-suppressed T2-weighted or proton density images allow evaluation of the articular cartilage, subchondral bone and subchondal marrow: if the articular cartilage is abnormal, the lesion is irreversible (arthrosis or necrosis); if the subchondral bone is focally interrupted and/or if the femoral is no longer spherical, the lesion is irreversible (necrosis); if a focal linear fluid collection is present under the subchondral bone, the lesion is irreversible (necrosis). Finally, subchondral changes may provide useful prognostic information: the absence of any abnormality other than marrow edema typically indicates that complete resolution is likely; the presence of a focal T2-weighted hypointense lesion immediately next to the subchondral bone suggests an irreversible lesion, especially if it is equal to or thicker than 4mm or the joint space. In some instances, prognosis cannot be reliably determined requiring the need for follow-up imaging. [less ▲]

BACKGROUND: Data regarding the effectiveness of anti-tumor necrosis factor (TNF) agents for resolution of extraintestinal manifestations (EIMs) are scarce. The CARE study evaluated clinical effectiveness, EIM resolution, and safety of adalimumab in a large pan-European cohort of patients with moderate to severe Crohn's disease (CD). METHODS: In all, 945 patients with a Harvey-Bradshaw Index (HBI) >/=7 enrolled in this multicenter, open-label phase IIIb trial. Patients received subcutaneous adalimumab, 160/80 mg at weeks 0/2, then 40 mg every other week. Dose adjustments were allowed for CD-related concomitant medications (from week 8) and adalimumab (from week 12). Clinical endpoints were analyzed through week 20 for all patients, and after stratification by prior infliximab exposure and by reason for discontinuing infliximab (primary nonresponse [PNR] or other). RESULTS: The remission rate (HBI <5) at week 20 was 52% (95% confidence interval, 49%-55%) overall, and was higher for infliximab-naive versus infliximab-exposed patients (62% versus 42%, P < 0.001). Remission rates were similar for PNR (37%) and other reasons (43%; P = 0.278). Of 497 patients with baseline EIMs, 51% were free of EIM signs and symptoms at week 20. Serious infectious adverse events were reported in 5% of patients. Opportunistic infections and malignancies were rare (</=1%). There was one case of demyelinating disease, but no occurrences of lupus, tuberculosis, or death. CONCLUSIONS: In this large cohort of patients, adalimumab treatment resulted in rates of clinical remission and EIM resolution exceeding 50%, and substantial rates of effectiveness in patients who had PNR to infliximab. Adalimumab was well tolerated, with safety consistent with prior reports. (Inflamm Bowel Dis 2011). [less ▲]
