We present the case of a 30-years-old female suffering from a type five maturity onset diabetes of the young deficiency, resulting in type 1 diabetes and terminal renal inssufficiency. She also had chronic and refractory pruritis due to primary sclerosing cholangitis _like fibrosis. She underwent combined en bloc liver and pancreas transplantation and kidney transplantation.The postoperative course was complicated by a gastric outlet obstruction due to compression of the native gastroduodenal junction by the donor aortic tube . This was treated by construction of a roux-en-y gastrojejunostomy at posttransplant day 24. To our knowledge, compression of the gastroduodenal junction by a donor aortic tube after combined liver and pancreas (or multivisceral) transplantation has not been reported previously. [less ▲]

BACKGROUND: The gastrin gene is known to be expressed in all classes of bronchogenic carcinomas. Furthermore, high levels of gastrin have been reported in both the bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) fluid and serum of patients with lung cancer. Based on these preliminary data a study was conducted to evaluate the usefulness of gastrin measurements in the diagnosis and staging of lung cancer. METHODS: Thirty-five patients with lung cancer (26 non-small cell (NSCLC) and nine small cell (SCLC)) and 25 patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease underwent fibreoptic bronchoscopy and BAL. Gastrin levels were determined in both BAL fluid and the serum and compared with each other and with staging. RESULTS: No difference was found between the gastrin levels in the BAL fluid or serum of the study groups. There was no correlation with the stage in NSCLC and no correlation was found between the gastrin levels in the serum and the BAL fluid. A significant difference was seen in gastrin levels in BAL fluid between extensive and limited SCLC (p < 0.05). CONCLUSION: There is no evidence of clinical usefulness for gastrin measurements in lung cancer. [less ▲]

Background and Aim: Radiographic sacroiliitis (SI), often asymptomatic, is considered the most frequent extra-intestinal manifestation (EIM) of Crohn's disease (CD). Data on the association of SI with other clinical features of CD are limited. Association of SI with CARD15 polymorphisms has recently been suggested. In a multicenter study, we investigated the association of SI in CD patients with clinical phenotypes, other EIM and CARD15 polymorphisms. Methods: Radiographs of the sacroiliac joints were taken in 251 CD patients from three Belgian university hospitals and scored by two blinded rheumatologists. Clinical features were obtained from medical records. Forty-three percent of patients carried at least one CARD15 polymorphism. Results: Sacroiliitis, defined as the presence of at least grade 2 unilateral changes, was diagnosed in 65 of the 244 scorable radiographs (27%). Only 16 of these patients were previously diagnosed with ankylosing spondylitis (AS). HLA-B27 positivity was observed in 53% of patients with AS and 7% of patients with radiographic SI. In univariate and multivariate analysis, associations between the presence of SI and peripheral arthritis (P = 0.005) and between AS and uveitis (P = 0.005) were found. No associations with other recorded clinical features or with CARD15 polymorphisms were observed. Conclusion: We confirm the high prevalence of radiographic sacroiliitis in a multicenter CD cohort. Uveitis is only associated with AS whereas all patients with SI are more prone to develop peripheral arthritis during their disease course, suggesting similar pathogenetic mechanisms in the development of these EIM. The previously reported association between SI and CARD15 polymorphisms was not confirmed. [less ▲]

Le tractus gastro-intestinal joue un rôle important dans l'homéostasie des protéines plasmatiques, aussi bien chez le sujet normal que dans les états pathologiques. A l'état physiologique, les protéines présentes dans la lumière intestinale ont une double origine: exogène, constituée des protéines alimentaires, et endogène, provenant des sécrétions digestives, de la desquamation cellulaire et des protéines plasmatiques sécrétées ou exsudées. L'exagération de ce dernier mécanisme définit l'entéropathie exsudative qu'il est plus logique de dénommer gastroentéropathie exsudative ou gastroentéropathie avec pertes de protéines dans la mesure où l'estomac peut participer à t'exsudation et que les pertes portent surtout sur les protéines normalement présentes dans le sang, la lymphe et le liquide interstitel. Citrin et coll. [26] ont été les premiers, en 1957, à mettre en évidence une déperdition d'albumine marquée a l'iode 131 chez un malade présentant une maladie de Ménétrier. Le terme d'entéropathie exsudative (<< protein-losing enteropathy ») a été utilisé pour la première fois en 1959 par Gordon aux Etats-Unis et Schwartz et Jarnum au Danemark. En France, c'est à Cattan et Vésin r2~] que l'on doit les premiers travaux consacrés à cette entité. Il s'agit en fait d'un syndrome relevant de causes multiples. Dans la majorité des cas, les manifestations cliniques et biologiques de l'exsudation sont au second plan, masquées par l'affection en cause. Le diagnostic est plus rarement évoqué devant une hypoprotidémie avec ou sans syndrome oedémateux non expliquée par une origine hépatique ou rénale. [less ▲]

Because of the lack of clinical data in the area, this clinical study was performed to evaluate gastrointestinal prokinetics’ efficiency. Material used includes 2 groups composed each one by 25 horses which underwent surgery for small intestinal lesions in the University of Liège between january 1997 and august 2005. The 2 groups were formed by a selection resulting in similar (or not significantly different) mean values for the age, gravity score, shock score, packed cell volume on admission in the clinic and length of resected intestine when an enterectomy was performed. Between the 2 groups, we searched also equal (or not significantly different) proportions of Belgian Warmblood, of females/males, of horses wich underwent an enterectomy, of horses which had a concomitant lesion of the large intestine and of horses wich needed 1 or more sedative α2 agonist drug during the postoperative period. One group was treated with gastrointestinal prokinetics (lidocaine, erythromycin, metoclopramide) systematically, whereas the other one not and the incidence and duration of postoperative ileus was evaluated. No significant difference in the incidence or the duration of postoperative ileus was found between the 2 groups. Because our results did not show any effect of prokinetics, a statistical analysis searched in these 50 horses the risk factors of postoperative ileus among the following parameters: breed, age, sex, gravity score, shock score, packed cell volume on admission in the clinic, protocol of induction of anaesthesia, duration of anaesthesia, performing an enterectomy and length of the resected intestine, concomitant lesion of the large intestine, and administration of sedative α2 agonists during the postoperative period. Only the Belgian warmblood breed and the administration of sedative α2 agonist drugs after the recovery from anaesthesia were significantly more important in the group where horses developed a postoperative ileus. Undoubdtedly, this study includes only 50 cases selected for the homogeneity of their parameters and not all the cases of small intestine surgery during the test period. In view of these results, it would be interesting performing this study again on a larger number of cases in a prospective manner. [less ▲]

OBJECTIVES: Selective inhibitors of cyclo-oxygenase-2 (COX-2) appear to be safer than conventional NSAIDs on the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Amtolmetin guacyl (AMG), a NSAID that inhibits both COX-1 and COX-2, has an anti-inflammatory effect comparable to that of traditional NSAIDs, with a better GI safety profile. The primary end-point of this study was to evaluate the gastrointestinal safety of amtolmetin guacyl in comparison with celecoxib in patients affected with rheumatoid arthritis. The assessment of efficacy was the secondary end-point. [less ▲]

The paper examines poll survey data to see if the way people invest in public envolvement is different between thos consider themselves to the left and those who consider themselves to the right. It appears that the difference beween rightl and left is small and that the main difference is bewteen those who choose a position and those who refuse to choose or do not answer.

We present an automated tool for measuring atmospheric parameters (T_eff, log(g), [Fe/H]) for F-G-K dwarf and giant stars. The tool, called GAUFRE, is written in C++ and composed of several routines: GAUFRE-RV measures radial velocity from spectra via cross-correlation against a synthetic template, GAUFRE-EW measures atmospheric parameters through the classic line-by-line technique and GAUFRE-CHI2 performs a chi^2 fitting to a library of synthetic spectra. A set of F-G-K stars extensively studied in the literature were used as a benchmark for the program: their high signal-to-noise and high resolution spectra were analysed by using GAUFRE and results were compared with those present in literature. The tool is also implemented in order to perform the spectral analysis after fixing the surface gravity (log(g)) to the accurate value provided by asteroseismology. A set of CoRoT stars, belonging to LRc01 and LRa01 fields was used for first testing the performances and the behaviour of the program when using the seismic log(g). [less ▲]

We revisit the gauge-covariant canonical formalism by separating explicitly physical and gauge degrees of freedom. We show in particular that the gauge-invariant linear and angular momentum operators proposed by Chen et al. can consistently be derived from the standard procedure based on Noether’s theorem. Finally, we demonstrate that this approach is essentially equivalent to the gauge-invariant canonical formalism based on the concept of Dirac variables. Because of many similarities with the background field method, the formalism developed here should also be relevant to general relativity and any metric theories. [less ▲]

Belgium is one of the first European country to legalize marriage and adoption for same-sex couples (respectively in 2003 and 2006) and to state anti-discrimination laws (2008). Despite the legalization, what can we say about adults’ attitudes? This study is part of an international project, and aims at studying the attitudes towards different kind of same-sex constellations – single gays and lesbians, couples, and families – and at examining the correlates to those attitudes. Attitudes were assessed through self-report questionnaires in a cohort of 366 heterosexual participants resident in Belgium, 72% females and 28% males aged from 26 to 40 (age class corresponding to transition lifecycle and parenting choices). Participants were asked to answer socio-demographic questions and to self-report their contact with homosexual people (frequency and satisfaction). Then different scales assessed their attitudes toward homosexuality (General Attitudes Toward Homosexuality, Da Costa, 2011; ATLG, Herek), same-sex marriage (Katuzny Scale on Same-Sex Marriage, 2012) and different types of same¬-sex parenting – adoption, alternative insemination, in vitro, ovocyte donation (D’Amore & Green Homoparentality Scale, 2012). It is hypothesized that correlates to positive attitudes will be associated with female gender, lower religiosity, non-protestant religions, liberal political ideology, and higher education and socioeconomic status. This presentation contributes to a better understanding of Belgian’s attitudes toward same-sex couples and same-sex families, by measuring the predictive variables of positive and negative attitudes.
