" On a fait appel à des bras et ce sont des êtres humains qui sont venus ", et pour continuer la sentence de l'écrivain suisse Max Frisch qui indiquait que l'immigration était et est, avant tout, une problématique humaine, on pourrait dire que ces êtres humains sont restés et ont vieilli. Dans les années 1970, certains pensaient qu'une fois le pactole amassé et le travail manquant, les immigrés rentreraient chez eux. Ils sont restés. Et puis, on les a oubliés, pour ne parler que de leurs enfants, ces fameuses deuxième, troisième, quatrième générations. Voici l'une des premières recherches menées sur la question en Belgique, résultat d'une étude menée en 2004 en Wallonie et à Bruxelles, revue et enrichie en décembre 2007. L'hypothèse de départ est que les immigrés âgés connaissent les mêmes difficultés et problèmes que les autres personnes âgées, en particulier celles appartenant à un milieu social comparable. Ce qui les en différencie, cependant, c'est l'ignorance dont ils font l'objet de la part des institutions et des autorités publiques. Cette étude propose ainsi une revue de la littérature existante sur le sujet en Belgique, une série de données et d'analyses statistiques, les principales caractéristiques de cette population établie à partir d'entretiens et propose des pistes de réflexion pour une meilleure prise en compte du vieillissement des personnes immigrées de Belgique.

Dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) inhibitors offer new options for the management of type 2 diabetes. Direct comparisons with active glucose-lowering comparators in drug-naive patients have demonstrated that DPP-4 inhibitors exert slightly less pronounced HbA(1c) reduction than metformin (with the advantage of better gastrointestinal tolerability) and similar glucose-lowering effects as with a thiazolidinedione (TZD; with the advantage of no weight gain). In metformin-treated patients, gliptins were associated with similar HbA(1c) reductions compared with a sulphonylurea (SU; with the advantage of no weight gain, considerably fewer hypoglycaemic episodes and no need for titration) and a TZD (with the advantage of no weight gain and better overall tolerability). DPP-4 inhibitors also exert clinically relevant glucose-lowering effects compared with a placebo in patients treated with SU or TZD (of potential interest when metformin is either not tolerated or contraindicated), and as oral triple therapy with a good tolerability profile when added to a metformin-SU or pioglitazone-SU combination. Several clinical trials also showed a consistent reduction in HbA(1c) when DPP-4 inhibitors were added to basal insulin therapy, with no increased risk of hypoglycaemia. Because of the complex pathophysiology of type 2 diabetes and the complementary actions of glucose-lowering agents, initial combination of a DPP-4 inhibitor with either metformin or a glitazone may be applied in drug-naive patients, resulting in greater efficacy and similar safety compared with either drug as monotherapy. However, DPP-4 inhibitors were less effective than GLP-1 receptor agonists for reducing HbA(1c) and body weight, but offer the advantage of being easier to use (oral instead of injected administration) and lower in cost. Only one head-to-head trial demonstrated the non-inferiority of saxagliptin vs sitagliptin. Clearly, more trials of direct comparisons between different incretin-based therapies are needed. Because of their pharmacokinetic characteristics, pharmacodynamic properties (glucose-dependent glucose-lowering effect) and good overall tolerability profile, DPP-4 inhibitors may have a key role to play in patients with renal impairment and in the elderly. The role of DPP-4 inhibitors in the therapeutic armamentarium of type 2 diabetes is rapidly evolving as their potential strengths and weaknesses become better defined mainly through controlled clinical trials.

Different strains of Bacillus were screened for their ability to hydrolyse D-alanyl-p-nitroanilide. Activity was detected in Bacillus pumilus, Bacillus brevis, Bacillus licheniformis 749I and Bacillus subtilis 168. The last strain was the best producer and was selected for the production and purification of the enzyme. The determination of the N-terminal sequence identified the enzyme as the product of the dppA gene (previously named dciAA) belonging to the dipeptide ABC transport (dpp) operon expressed early during sporulation. Open reading frames (ORFs) encoding putative related proteins were found in the genomes of a variety of Archaea and both sporulating and non-sporulating bacteria. The enzyme behaves as a D-aminopeptidase and represents the prototype of a new peptidase family. Among the tested substrates, the highest activities were found with D-Ala-D-Ala and D-Ala-Gly-Gly. The active enzyme behaves as an octamer of identical 30 kDa subunits. It exhibits a broad pH optimum, extending between pH 9 and 11. It is reversibly inhibited in the presence of Zn2+ chelators, and the sequence comparisons highlight the conservation of potential Zn-binding residues. As it has been shown by others that null mutations in the dpp operon do not inhibit spore formation, the physiological role of DppA is probably an adaptation to nutrient deficiency. [less ▲]

European legislation laid down maximum tolerable levels of dioxin in feed and food as well as analytical method requirements. In order to face with large monitoring programs, it was foreseen in the EU strategy to integrate screening methods, using either a qualitative (screening) approach, or a quantitative approach. In this study, dioxin results obtained using the Dioxin Responsive Chemical-Activated LUciferase gene eXpression (DR-CALUX(R)) cell-based assay (quantitative approach), were compared with gas chromatography-high resolution mass spectrometry (GC-HRMS) analyses data. Instead of using World Health Organization-toxic equivalent factor (WHO-TEF), the comparison was based on the assessment of relative effective potencies (REPs) for each congener of the 17 toxic 2,3,7,8-polychlorodibenzo-p-dioxins/furans (PCDD/Fs) and 12 dioxin-like polychlorobiphenyls (DL-PCBs). According to published data, DR-CALUX(R)-REP evaluated here appear similar to WHO-TEF for PCDD/Fs while lower values were observed for DL-PCBs. We analyzed two "home made" contaminated fat samples, displaying both the same WHO-toxic equivalent quantities (WHO-TEQ) concentration (12 pg WHO-TEQ g(-1)). They were spiked with either a low or a high amount of DL-PCBs. In both cases, the DR-CALUX(R) measured concentration (picogram 2,3,7,8 tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) eq. g(-1)) corresponded to the PCDD/Fs WHO-TEQ concentration only. A good agreement was nevertheless found between the DR-CALUX(R) measurements and the recalculated DR-CALUX(R)-TEQ contents (using DR-CALUX(R)-REP instead of WHO-TEF), demonstrating that the observed response was due, in both cases, to the addition of the responses of the standards added to the fat. By contrast, in real contaminated samples (feed or cod liver samples), DR-CALUX(R) measured concentrations were similar to WHO-TEQ GC-HRMS measured concentrations. But, depending on the PCDD/Fs and DL-PCBs congener content, the DR-CALUX(R) measured concentrations were either lower or higher than calculated DR-CALUX(R)-TEQ contents, demonstrating that possible co-extracted contaminants contributed to the CALUX response. Owing to these divergences, the quantitative determination of dioxin-like content in food and feed using CALUX as screening method is questionable, except for samples displaying constant congener patterns, in which cases, correction factors could be applied.

Urban observatories represent today a global phenomenon. In the last decades, public actors, universities and civil society actors have established hundreds of urban observatories all around the world. Some of these observatories actively contribute to the analysis of urban dynamics and affect urban policy making. However, urban observatories are still understudied; the scientific literature on urban observatories is rare and culturally fragmented. This article seeks to contribute to the development of a body of knowledge on urban observatories, by proposing a typology of urban observatories that stress the potential impacts and contributions of four different archetypes on urban and territorial planning and management.

This paper describes the latest developments in a research program investigating the development of “adaptive internal structures” to enable adaptive aeroelastic control of aerospace structures. Through controlled changes of the second moment of area, orientation or position of the spars, it is possible to control the bending and torsional stiffness characteristics of aircraft wings or tail surfaces. The aeroelastic behaviour can then be controlled as desired. A number of different adaptive internal structure concepts (rotating, moving and split spars) are compared here using a simple rectangular wing structure in order to determine which are the most effective for achieving minimum drag at different points in a representative flight envelope. A genetic algorithm approach is employed to determine the optimal spar orientation for rotating spars concept. It is shown that it is feasible to adjust the structure and trim characteristics of such wing structures in order to achieve minimum drag at all conditions. [less ▲]
