OBJECTIVE: Infliximab is an effective treatment for refractory or fistulizing Crohn's disease (CD). However, about 30% of patients do not respond to infliximab for unknown reasons. Identifying predictive factors of response is important for optimizing clinical management and for better understanding infliximab's mechanisms of action. The aim of this study was to assess whether demographic or clinical parameters influence short-term response to infliximab. METHODS: The first 240 CD patients of the Belgian Infliximab Expanded Access Program were studied for response to infliximab treatment and assessed at 4 (refractory luminal CD) or 10 wk (fistulizing CD) after the first infusion. Detailed demographic and clinical information on age, sex, type of disease (fistulizing or refractory), Crohn's Disease Activity Index score, C-reactive protein (CRP), smoking habits, disease duration, localization of disease, concomitant medication, and previous surgery were obtained from all patients. Logistic regression and decision tree analysis were performed. RESULTS: There were 73.5% responders and 26.5% nonresponders to treatment. Stepwise logistic regression identified age (OR = 0.971, 95% CI = 0.947-0.995, p = 0.018), isolated ileitis (OR = 0.359, 95% CI 0.177-0.728, p = 0.004), and previous surgery (OR 0.429, 95% CI = 0.233-0.787, p = 0.006) as inversely correlated with response, whereas isolated colitis (OR = 1.905, 95% CI = 1.010-3.597, p = 0.046) and concomitant immunosuppressive treatment (OR = 2.670, 95% CI = 1.430-5.016, p = 0.0022) were positively correlated with response to infliximab. Surprisingly, smoking habits were not retained as predictors for response. Decision tree analysis provided a working algorithm based on age and immunosuppressive treatment that warrants further exploration. CONCLUSIONS: In this large cohort of infliximab-treated CD patients, young age, Crohn's colitis, and concomitant immunosuppressive treatment were identified as independent variables favoring short-term response to infliximab.

The current anthropic pressures lead to a growth of the commensalism phenomenon with primates and humans interacting and competing for space and food. As these situations generate inter-specific conflicts, an extensive analysis seems essential for primate conservation issues. Bali (Indonesia) is characterized by a high density of long-tailed macaques (Macaca fascicularis) living in association with humans. The macaque population of the Padangtegal Monkey Forest (Ubud) has been the focus of successive studies since 1986 (Wheatley, 1986; Fuentes et al., 2007). Here, we present updated data (September-December 2009) on demography, activity budget and diet of this population while analyzing variations over time. The macaques at Padangtegal showed a substantial population growth over the last thirty years (34% average growth every 6 years). In 2009, we listed 498 individuals split in 5 groups with an average adult sex ratio of 1:4.5. The home range size also increased over time (7ha in 1986 vs. 30ha in 2009) but was finally limited by surrounded human infrastructures. Consequently, the population density doubled in the course of the last 8 years and counted 16.6 macaques per hectare in 2009. On the other hand, the activity budget pattern appeared quite stable over time with a large proportion of time spent inactive and socializing and a relatively small proportion of time spent in feeding activities. This activity pattern is characteristic of provisioned primate populations. Finally, the diet composition slightly varied over time except for the radical decrease of provisioned carbohydrate-rich food proportions, following some management decisions. Macaques at Padangtegal thus show some stability in their behavioural ecology despite considerable changes in demography. Nevertheless, these positive population trends do not protect macaques from some long term risks tied to commensalism, such as inbreeding depression and increased probability of disease transmission.

The sympatric relationship between humans and primates is a contemporary widespread phenomenon. Several primate species are capable for exploiting human-modified habitats in association with people, but the most successful species in South-east Asia is probably the long-tailed macaque (M. fascicularis). The low predation pressures in zones of interface and the inclusion of human food in macaques’ diet can lead to local overpopulations. On the other hand, the risk of epidemic disease is simultaneously increased by the high primate density and the proximity with human vectors. Data presented here represent 25 years-population dynamics of a long term commensal-living population of macaques in Ubud Monkey Forest (Indonesia). This population experienced a dramatic growth with an 11% annual increase rate. In June 2012, we counted 615 individuals divided in 5 groups with a very high density of 61 macaques per hectare. However, two Streptococcus outbreaks have also been reported over the same 25 years period, temporarily limiting the steep positive demographic trend of this population. The last epidemic event in July 2012 resulted in a 14% mortality affecting 3 out of 5 groups of the population. Besides the anthropic factors promoting population growth, epidemic diseases play a significant role in shaping the dynamics of this synanthropic population and could have important implications in the future both in terms of local management and local conservation status.

It is well known that the Kingfisher populations decrease dramatically after a sever winter. The recovery depends on the climatic conditions of the next reproductive seasons. In order to understand the mechanism involved in this climatic influence, the fate of more than 500 broods was studied between 1985 and 1993. The study area comprises the river Meuse from Vireux (F,08) downstreams to Huy (B Liège) and the lower part of its main tributaries. The first egg laying date was determined for each brood, eggs were counted, pulli ringed at nest and the adults controlled and ringed when possible. Our main conclusions are i : the beginning of the first clutch is correlated with the thermic conditions of March. ii : the clutches are not synchronised, even on a same watercourse. iii : the egg probuction and the hatching success don't show clear variations between years abd habitat types (river, ponds and small streams) or depending on the clutch rank. iv : the fledged young production depends on how much broods are raised by the different pairs. v : the probability a pair is attempting a thrid brood is function of how early the first clutch is layed, the age of the male (older males settle earlier and are more productive), the habitat quality and the weather conditions (rain, temperature) in May.

The study was conducted with 150 Fulani herders in the departments of Borgu and Alibori in Benin. It aimed to determine the zootechnical parameters of traditional cattle farms. The survey collected information on the characteristics of cattle herds. The results showed a high proportion of females (76%), an average herd size (66 animals) and the prevalence of the Borgu breed (86%). The herds also showed a low breeding performance, characterized by a high calf mortality rate (10%), and low reproductive parameters (64% calving and fertility rates). In a year, 0.57 calf was weaned on average by its dam. The low performance of cattle farms in coastal countries such as Benin is consistent with that of pastoral areas, which is complementary in terms of meat supply to West African markets. [less ▲]
