We analyze the evolution of several financial indices before the crash of October 1987. The amplitude of the crash varies from one index to another. However, assuming that the crash is similar to a phase transition and particularly to a specific heat jump, we find that the crash amplitude can be well estimated by assuming a simple background which differs from market to market. We show that the divergence near the crash event is logarithmic and extends between 2 weeks and 4 years before the october 1987 crash on both S&P500 and Dow Jones indices. The behavior is like that found for the d = 2 Ising model specific heat. The latter result is in contrast to previous works which have considered a power law behavior of the index near the crash. Finally, we confirm the presence of log-periodic oscillations and discuss briefly their origin. [less ▲]

Créaholic est une entreprise européenne composée de 23 collaborateurs. Son cœur de métier est l’innovation par rupture et la créativité. Toujours dirigée par son fondateur charismatique, l’entreprise présente une structure relativement horizontale et un mode de fonctionnement par projet. Le « chaos créatif » est favorisé afin de laisser libre cours et de stimuler la créativité de chaque travailleur. Créaholic a souffert de la crise récente et, à l’heure actuelle, plusieurs collaborateurs souhaitent la mise en place d’une organisation davantage structurée et de procédures plus formalisées.

Cette communication se propose de revoir, d’une manière large, les questions liées à « l’auteur » en tapisserie, en les envisageant dans le cadre de l’activité de Michel Coxcie. Artiste de cour et peintre officiel de la Ville de Bruxelles, Coxcie est de loin le plus inventif et le plus productif dans le domaine de la conception de pièces tissées entre les années 1540 et 1563. Nous verrons que la contribution du « Raphaël flamand » à la tapisserie est délicate à appréhender et se présente certainement comme la plus problématique de l’ensemble de son activité (en raison des transformations dues au passage du patron vers le textile, des multiples intervenants au sein de l’atelier…). Enfin, considérer en parallèle l’activité des autres cartonniers romanistes flamands (Bernard Van Orley, Pieter Coecke, Pieter de Kempeneer) et des artistes présents en Italie (Johannes Stradanus) peut assurément contribuer à une meilleure compréhension de ces problèmes et fournir des indications sur la méthode à adopter. L’objectif est également de déterminer les limites de notre propre enquête. [less ▲]

Brain-type creatine kinase (CK) isoenzyme (CK-BB) was found in the ventricular cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and the serum in a series of 35 patients within 13 hours following severe head injury. There was a good correlation between total CK and CK-BB activities in CSF only. The values found in the CSF appear to be a quantitative index of brain dysfunction at admission, and did not correlate with intracranial pressure activity. High levels of CK-BB in the CSF correlated with a poor outcome, and thus offer a reliable criterion for the assessment of the severity of head injury. [less ▲]

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a major issue in public health. Its prevalence has been calculated using estimation of glomerular filtration rate (GFR) by the creatinine-based equations developed in the Modified Diet in Renal Disease (MDRD) and Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration (CKD-EPI) study. Recently, new equations based either on cystatin C (CKD-EPI Cys) or both cystatin and creatinine (CKD-EPI mix) have been proposed by the CKD-EPI consortium. The aim of this study was to measure the difference in the prevalence of stage 3 CKD, defined as an estimated GFR less than 60 mL/min/1.73 m2, in a population using these four equations. METHODS: CKD screening was performed in the Province of Liege, Belgium. On a voluntary basis, people aged over 50 years have been screened. GFR was estimated by the four equations. Stage 3 CKD was defined as a GFR less than 60 mL/min/1.73 m2. RESULTS: The population screened consisted of 4189 people (47% were men, mean age 63 +/- 7y). Their mean serum creatinine and plasma cystatin C levels were 0.88 +/- 0.21 mg/dL and 0.85 +/- 0.17 mg/L, respectively. The prevalence of CKD in this population using the MDRD, the CKD-EPI, the CKD-EPI Cys and the CKD-EPI mix equations was 13%, 9.8%, 4.7% and 5%, respectively. The prevalence of CKD was significantly higher with the creatinine-based (MDRD and the CKD-EPI) equations compared to the new cystatin C-based equations. CONCLUSIONS: Prevalence of CKD varies strongly depending on the method used to estimate GFR. Such discrepancies are of importance and must be confirmed and explained by additional studies, notably by studies using GFR measured with a reference method [less ▲]

Serum creatinine is certainly one of the most prescribed biological parameters. In this review article, we remind some historical data regarding creatinine. Different methodologies to measure creatinine in blood and urine are deeply described. We also discuss the physiological reason for its use as a glomerular filtration rate marker. However, analytical and physiological limitations are described and discussed. Creatinine clearance usefulness is finally largely discussed. [less ▲]

Chronic renal failure (CRF) is a common complication in heart transplant patients. Serum creatinine has clear limitations for the detection and estimation of glomerular filtration rate (GFR). Various creatinine-based formulae are classically used for GFR estimation, but little scientific evidence exists for such use in a heart transplant population. GFR was measured using the plasmatic clearance of the glomerular tracer Cr-51-EDTA in 27 heart transplant patients with two measures for 22 of the patients. Forty-nine measures were thus available for analysis. The precision and accuracy (Bland and Altman analysis) of the Cockcroft, simplified Modified Diet in Renal Diseases (MDRD) and new Mayo Clinic formulae were compared. The mean GFR of the population was 39 +/- 15 mL/min/1.73 m(2). All formulae were well correlated with the GFR. With the Bland and Altman analysis, the accuracy of the MDRD formula appeared higher than that of the Cockcroft or the Mayo Clinic formulae (bias of +12 mL/min/1.73 m(2), vs. +19.9 mL/min/1.73 m(2), and +22.1 mL/min/1.73 m(2), respectively). The difference between the estimated and measured GFR was higher than 20 mL/min/1.73 m(2) in 51% and 55% cases when using the Cockcroft and the Mayo Clinic formulae respectively, whereas the difference was only noted in 14% cases when the MDRD was used. Among creatinine-based formulae, the MDRD appears the most precise and accurate for estimating the GFR in heart transplant patients. However, when the GFR must be measured with high accuracy, we recommend the use of a reference method like inulin or Cr-51-EDTA plasma clearance techniques. [less ▲]

L’utilisation de l’art à des fins d’émancipation sociale s’inscrit au cœur des pratiques art-thérapeutiques telles que nous les avons étudiées dans notre thèse de doctorat . C’est plus précisément à travers l’exposition des œuvres des malades mentaux que se dessinent les projets de réinsertion sociale par la pratique artistique : en exposant les créations, en faisant découvrir les œuvres des patients au grand public, les art-thérapeutes espèrent amenuiser le fossé qui sépare l'hopital psychiatrique du monde « normal». Est-ce que l'expression artistique permet de percevoir autrement la maladie? Est-ce que l'exposition de ses créations offre au patient la possibilité d'être perçu comme artiste ? Le monde de l'art réputé ouvert à la marginalité serait-il une voie possible pour sa réinsertion? Ce sont ces interrogations qu’il va s’agir de discuter à la lumière de notre enquête auprès d’art-thérapeutes belges. [less ▲]
