Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) comprises different interstitial lung diseases of unknown origin. They are classified into four groups based on pathologic criteria: UIP, DIP, AIP and NSIP. This classification helps in terms of prognosis and treatment. In addition to history, physical examination and common investigations (chest X ray, pulmonary function testing), a bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL), a high-resolution CT scan and ideally a open-lung biopsy are needed to establish a precise diagnosis. The patients are usually treated by immunosuppressive agents, and mainly by corticoids. However, in UIP, lung transplantation is the only way to improve survival. [less ▲]

Initial experiments towards preparation of hollow ceramic microtubes by dip-coating of fibrous plants with water based alumina gel-casting slurries using hemp and coconut fibres as templates have been done. It has been found that the wettability of fibres and accordingly the stability of the developed ceramic layer on their surface during slurry gelation varied significantly within the different fibre types. Good correlation between the diameters of the template fibres and the resulting channels has been found at the 31 % solids loadings level. Hemp fibres used as bundles have led to formation of multi channel patterns while the coconut fibres-templated process resulted in uniform monochannel materials. The micro tubes have shown good mechanical handling properties. [less ▲]

OBJECTIVE: This study was undertaken to identify new biomarkers of osteoarthritis (OA) by proteomics analysis and to develop specific immunoassays to detect and quantify them. METHODS: Proteomics analysis was performed in urine samples from 10 women (mean+/-SD age 76.0+/-5.0 years) undergoing knee replacement surgery due to severe OA and 5 healthy women (mean+/-SD age 25.6+/-2.6 years). Protein content was analyzed by 2-dimensional differential gel electrophoresis. Protein spots that exhibited an OA:control abundance ratio of >/=1.5 were identified by mass spectrometry. Specific enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays were developed and validated in serum obtained from 236 healthy subjects ages 20-64 years and from 76 patients with severe radiologic knee OA (mean+/-SD age 68.8+/-11.9 years). Immunohistochemical analysis was performed on articular cartilage from tibial plateaus. RESULTS: Thirteen proteins within spots that were significantly modified between groups were identified. Two peptides of fibulin 3, named Fib3-1 and Fib3-2, were of particular interest. Two antisera directed against these peptides were used to develop immunoassays. Compared with age-matched healthy subjects, median levels of serum Fib3-1 and Fib3-2 were elevated in OA patients (54.6 pM versus 85.1 pM [P<0.0001] and 144.4 pM versus 191.4 pM [P<0.0001], respectively). Using area under the receiver operating characteristic curve analysis, we demonstrated that Fib3-1 and Fib3-2 levels discriminate between OA and normal populations. Immunostaining revealed the presence of Fib3-1 and Fib3-2 in chondrocytes and in the extracellular matrix of the superficial layer of the fibrillated cartilage. CONCLUSION: Our findings indicate that Fib3-1 and Fib3-2 are potential biochemical markers for the diagnosis of OA. [less ▲]

This report presents the results of the numerical simulations performed by University of Liege in the framework of work package 6 of the FICEB project financed by the Research Fund for Coal and Steel. A full scale fire test was performed in Ulster on February 27th 2010 on a composite floor for analysing the behaviour of long cellular steel beams in a complete compartment office in building structure under realistic fire conditions. The aim was to study the possibility of tensile membrane action to develop when the unprotected steel beams in the central part of the floor are made of cellular beams. Predictive numerical simulations of the test have been performed with the software SAFIR in order to define the appropriate structure to be used for the full scale fire test. As predicted, the structure was able to withstand the test without collapse. After the test, the results of the predictive simulations have been compared to the measured results, showing relatively good agreement. [less ▲]

Afin d’évaluer le caractère environnemental d’un matériau, des outils d’évaluation existent. Le plus complet est l’Analyse du Cycle de Vie qui est une méthodologie normée internationalement (ISO 14040-14044) permettant d’obtenir l’impact environnemental d’un produit tout au long de son cycle de vie. Les résultats d’une telle étude peuvent être déclinés pour obtenir une fiche de déclaration environnementale des produits étudiés, permettant d’illustrer l’impact des différentes étapes sur l’environnement. Ces fiches ont également pour but la comparaison environnementale de produits ayant la même application. Notre étude est basée sur l’évaluation environnementale de produits en pierre naturelle, à savoir la pierre bleue et le grès à travers divers produits finis. Le but premier de cette étude est de mettre en évidence les étapes responsables du plus grand impact environnemental pour chaque produit et ainsi permettre à la carrière étudiée de revoir ses positions et de modifier certaines lignes de conduite afin d’améliorer les impacts environnementaux obtenus. Au vu de la compétition asiatique régnant sur le marché des pierres naturelles, un volet supplémentaire de l’étude a été consacré à l’évaluation de l’impact environnemental des concurrents directs des produits mentionnés ci-dessus. Pour conclure, l’Analyse du Cycle de Vie va devenir, au fil des années, une démarche incontournable à étendre à chaque carrière, et à la production de matériaux de construction au sens large, afin de leur donner les ressources nécessaires pour relever le défi du développement durable.
