The purpose of these guidelines is to assist nuclear medicine practitioners in recommending, performing, interpreting, and reporting the results of brain perfusion SPECT studies using Tc-99m radiopharmaceuticals and brain metabolism PET studies using F-18 fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG). These guidelines have been adapted and extended from those produced by the Society, of Nuclear Medicine (Juni et al., 1998) and the European Association of Nuclear Medicine by, a Belgian group of experts in the field trained in neurology and/or nuclear medicine. Some indications are not universally approved (e.g. brain death), but largely, supported by the literature. They, have been included in these guidelines in order to provide recommendations and a standardised protocol [less ▲]

In this paper we propose guidelines for clinical trials aimed at assessing the efficacy of drugs for acute non-specific low back pain (LBP) with or without radicular pain, preliminary to their approval and registration. To this end, consensus statements were obtained from a group of experts in the fields of rheumatology, clinical medicine, public health and epidemiology. EBM resources were systematically used as references. [less ▲]

Over the last decade glucosinolates contained in different tissues of Brassicaceae and their breakdown products, especially isothiocyanates formed after myrosinase-catalyzed hydrolysis, have been considered not only important antitumoral compounds but also as interesting “biopesticides” for controlling soil borne pathogens. This is the reason why the identification and the quantitative determination of each individual glucosinolate contents in green tissues (leaves, roots, stem) are of great importance. The aim of this paper is to establish a joint protocol containing the guidelines to determine glucosinolate contents in fresh Brassicaceae tissues by HPLC of desulfo-glucosinolates. Some modifications of the ISO 9167-1 method, initially set up for evaluating rapeseed seeds, are proposed and discussed with the objective of optimizing and standardizing glucosinolate analysis in fresh tissues (leaves, roots or stems) of Brassicaceae. Collection, storage and preparation of fresh samples suitable to be analyzed are important steps during which it is necessary to avoid glucosinolate hydrolysis by the endogenous myrosinase-catalyzed reaction. The techniques of extraction and desulfatation of glucosinolates, the choice and purification of the internal standard, and the HPLC conditions (including the relative response factors) are also presented. The possibility of a convenient and simplified use of an alternative isocratic HPLC method for an accurate qualitative and quantitative determination of glucosinolates is also discussed and evaluated. The identification of desulfo-glucosinolates is performed by comparison of their retention times and UV spectra, and by GC-MS analysis of the compounds resulting from myrosinase-catalyzed hydrolysis of glucosinolates. The experience acquired in the field of the preparation of glucosinolate or desulfo-glucosinolate as chromatographic standards, using free and immobilized sulfatase is also presented. [less ▲]

Optimal delivery of health care is a common goal of individual physicians, professional organizations, hospital structures and governmental authorities. A growing concern has emerged from the public, media and third payer organizations concerning the quality of care and the amount of resources spending. In the United States, large databases, guidelines and performance evaluation have been elaborated by medical societies, particularly in the area of cardiac surgery. These tools are useful for improvement of patients' care, resources distribution, pay for performance and public and practitioners' awareness. The evaluation of quality is based on composite models combining structure, process and outcome indices. However, pitfalls such as patients' selection, and risk avoidance in order to improve results must been prevented by adjustment of the treated populations' risk factors by specific scores. The Belgian Health authorities have built a structure directed at delivery of care improvement based on "Care Programs", monitored by Colleges formed by delegates of professional organizations. The College of Cardiac Surgery has promoted several studies aimed at data collection and evaluation. In 2007, a survey was addressed to all the Belgian Cardiac surgeons to define their opinion as to the best indicators of care in their specialty. These results will serve to define further avenues of research. By maintaining the responsibility of care evaluation in the hands of the involved professionals, this kind of cooperation between governmental and physicians' organizations seems to serve the best interests of the public and the practitioners.
