Patent related to the sensor "Ampacimon" as accepted in USA. The sensor is directly fixed on power line conductor (any voltage) and is able, without any data, to give the sag of the span on which it is installed. The device is based on mechanical frequency detection which is a signature of the sag of the span in any conditions. The device is autonomous (it catches energy from the conductor) and informations are sent to a server which is then able to calculate ampacity of the power line. [less ▲]

This contribution aims at reporting the developpment of a controlled drug delivery system (DDS) dedicated to the treatment of intra-peritoneal pathologies, especially endometriosis. At present time, endometriosis is generally treated by daily oral absorption of drug with the purpose to improve the life quality of patients by the reduction of the pain caused by endometrial lesions. Nevertheless, deleterious side-effects, mainly infertility, are observed as a consequence of the important amount of absorbed active principle. One main advantage of controlled drug delivery devices, e.g. polymer implants, is to maintain sustained drug release over a prolonged period of time thereby eliminating fluctuations in the drug plasma concentration. Moreover, DDS allows a local release of the drug at a specific area, which significantly decreases the active principle concentration in the body and limits side-effects. The peritoneal cavity is a convenient site for the implantation of a DDS against endometriosis because large parts of lesion are localized in this region. At our knowledge, no application of an implant dedicated to the treatment of endometriosis is reported in the literature, whereas the local controlled release of an active principle presents several advantages compared to systemic administration. In this study, anastrozole (2,2’-[5-1H-1,2,4-triazole-1-yl-methyl)-1,3-phenylene]bis(2-methylpropiononitrile)), a well-known aromatase-inhibiting drug, was selected as active molecule. Typically, two non-biodegradable polymers were tested for the elaboration of an anastrozole loaded intra-peritoneal implant, namely polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) and poly(ethylene-co-vinyl acetate) (EVA). As preliminary research, the ‘in vivo’ biocompatibility of PDMS and EVA in the intra-peritoneal cavity was confirmed by implantation of PDMS and EVA rod-shaped implants in rats. The kinetic of release was determined ‘in vitro’ and confirmed ‘in vivo’. Besides, the efficiency of the implants was improved by the addition of a polymer membrane, which allowed a controlled release of anastrozole over a period of 400 days. [less ▲]

Local treatment using drug loaded implants allows decreasing seric concentrations of the active ingredient with the purpose of limiting side effects and reaching perfect observance. Nowadays, some diseases are already treated with implants, but generally, by subcutaneous or intra vaginal implantation. In this work, a new implant device dedicated to the intra-peritoneal cavity was developed. For this purpose, a core-membrane polymer implant was selected. We propose an original method to determine the most appropriate membrane to control the release based on the use of Franz cells. The ability of the implant to release a constant quantity of an active ingredient will be assessed by testing implants in vitro. Finally, intra peritoneal cavity and subcutaneous in vivo implantation has been achieved in order to confirm the controlled and local release of the active ingredient. [less ▲]

Although single or multiple daily subcutaneous injections of insulin with syringes are the mainstay of insulin delivery techniques for the treatment of diabetes mellitus, several other methods are now available. The present paper will review the main problems occurring with the classical subcutaneous insulin therapy and the possible solutions given by the use of new devices, including more particularly insulin jet injectors, pens, and portable pumps. This review has to be considered as an introduction to the presentations of this symposium devoted to implantable pumps, glucose sensors, and artificial pancreas, respectively. [less ▲]

Le devoir d'information de l'assureur dans les assurances de dommages prend diverses formes. Il peut se traduire par l'obligation de l'assureur d'établir des documents spécifiques à l'attention du preneur d'assurance, de l'assuré ou d'un tiers, ou d'y inscrire certaines mentions particulières. Il arrive aussi que ce devoir se mue en une véritable obligation de conseil envers l'assuré. L'auteur examine les obligations d'information qui incombe à l'assureur dans ce type d'assurances, selon qu'elles doivent être accomplies au moment de la conclusion ou de la résiliation du contrat d'assurance, au moment de l'envoi de l'avis d'échéance ou, encore, lors l'exécution du contrat en cas de sinistre.

Anatomical, systematic, and paleobiogeographical data on the Devonian antiarchs from Belgium are reviewed, updated and completed thanks to new data from the field and re-examination of paleontological collections. The material of Bothriolepis lohesti Leriche, 1931 is enhanced and the species better described. An undetermined species of Bothriolepis is recorded from the Famennian of Modave (Liège Province), one species of Asterolepis redescribed from the Givetian of Hingeon and another one described from the Givetian of Mazy (Namur Province). Grossilepis rikiki sp. nov. is recorded from the Famennian tetrapod-bearing locality of Strud (Namur Province) and from the Famennian of Moresnet (Liège Province). It is the first occurrence of Grossilepis after the Frasnian and on the central southern coast of the Euramerican continent. Its occurrence in the Famennian of Belgium may be the result of a late arrival from the Moscow Platform and the Baltic Depression, where the genus is known from Frasnian deposits. Remigolepis durnalense sp. nov. is described from the Famennian of Spontin near Durnal (Namur Province). Except for the doubtful occurrence of Remigolepis sp. in Scotland, this is the first record of this genus in Western Europe. Its occurrence in Belgium reinforces the strong faunal affinities between Belgium and East Greenland and the hypothesis of a hydrographical link between the two areas during the Late Devonian.
