L'inertie thermique dans le bâtiment est l'une des composantes les plus étudiées en architecture bioclimatique. Le principal intérêt d'une grande capacité thermique est d'assurer le confort, surtout durant l'été, en déphasant les apports extérieurs et en atténuant les fluctuations de la température extérieure. L'inertie a beaucoup été étudiée dans des cellules-tests. La démarche décrite dans cet article se base sur une modélisation par le logiciel Suncode de différentes variantes d'une maison unifamiliale, représentative du parc de logement belge. Pour une maison purement passive, il s'avère que la consommation énergétique annuelle est beaucoup moins sensible à l'inertie qu'à l'isolation de la maison. Une saturation de consommation est même atteinte pour de grandes inerties. Pour assurer un déphasage supérieur à une journée, il conviendrait de favoriser un système actif de captation de l'énergie solaire qui serait directement injectée dans le milieu des parois épaisses de la maison.

Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disease which can be most often adequately controlled by current medications as demonstrated by multiple randomised clinical trials. Yet most of the recent surveys conducted in the real life setting point to an inadequate control in the majority of asthmatics. In addition to factors linked to the hygiene of life, clinician's inertia and patient's lack of adherence to the treatment certainly contribute to poor asthma control. [less ▲]

Therapeutic inertia is one of the components of clinical inertia. It mainly concerns the management of chronic diseases. It may be defined as the attitude of health care providers who do not initiate or intensify therapy appropriately despite recognition of the problem. Multiple causes may be identified, related to the physician but also to the patient and to the health care system. The consequences may be dramatic, both for the patient, in terms of quality of life and/or life expectancy, and for the society, because of the huge cost resulting from complications due to therapeutic inertia. Thus, various solutions should be proposed to help solving this important public health problem, focusing the actions on the physician, the patient and/or the health care system. [less ▲]

Therapeutic inertia, i.e. the absence of introduction of an antihypertensive treatment or on adjustment of its intensity by the medical doctor if the blood pressure is elevated or the goal not reached, is frequent and does play a role in the insufficient control of blood presure in the hypertensive population. The responsibility of the medical doctor is high in this respect. A strict medical approach is required, step by step, to correct this lack of reaction. [less ▲]

Infami senza lode narra le vicende di una parte dei migranti di origine italiana a Toronto e di quelli rimasti in una comunità dell'entroterra campano. Questo libro non è la solita etnografia di Little Italy, ma punta ad analizzare le biografie di uomini e donne in carne e ossa tra il partire e il restare. L'autore si spinge fin dentro le periferie degradate e povere della metropoli canadese e alcuni ambienti della manovalanza camorristica campana, riflettendo sui dispositivi di razzizzazione e criminalizzazione che investono sia i migranti di origine italiana non integrati a Toronto, sia i giovani "rimasti" in una comunità dell'Italia meridionale. In questo senso, si approda all'analisi dei meccanismi di assoggettamento, che seppur in contesti politici, sociali, economici e culturali diversi, riproducono incessantemente il dominio e la subordinazione, generando micro-resistenze fatte di devianza, dissolutezza, illegalismo, criminalità. Una comparazione che, nella quotidianità dell'esclusione e della differenza da un lato all'altro dell'Oceano, ha svelato molte contraddizioni sottese all'esperimento multiculturale in atto a Toronto e alle narrazioni culturaliste che investono sia la "comunità italiana" in Canada, sia la "comunità dei rimasti" in Italia.

We describe 2 new cases of Alexander's disease, the first to be reported in Belgium. The first patient, a 4-year-old girl, presented with progressive megalencephaly, mental retardation, spastic tetraparesis, ataxia and epilepsy: post-mortem examination showed widespread myelin loss with Rosenthal fibers (RFs) accumulation throughout the neuraxis. She was the third of heterozygotic twins, the 2 others having developed normally and being alive at age 5 years. The second patient developed at age 10 years and over a decade spastic paraparesis, palatal myoclonus, nystagmus, thoracic hyperkyphosis and thoraco-lumbar scoliosis with radiological findings of bilateral anterior leukoencephalopathy. Brain stereotactic biopsy at age 16 years demonstrated numerous RFs. With these 2 cases, we review the literature on the various clinico-pathological conditions reported as Alexander's disease. We discuss the nosology of this entity and the pathogeny of RFs formation and dysmyelination. Clues to the diagnosis of this encephalopathy in the living patient are briefly described. [less ▲]

Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is a serious condition which requires rapid hospital management. In this article, we review the current recommendations concerning AMI treatment, as well as our therapeutic approach, which is based on the evidence provided by several large well controlled clinical trials. Mid and long term prognosis are mainly related to the development of left ventricular dysfunction which determines heart failure, the occurrence of severe ventricular arrhythmias and the persistence of residual myocardial ischemia. Several treatments (aspirin, beta-blockade, ACE inhibitors, statins) have shown their benefit in terms of secondary prevention. [less ▲]

Beside acute rejection or immunosuppressive therapy toxicity, infection by Polyomavirus BK, usually not aggressive in immunoactive patients, has emerged as an important factor affecting graft function in renal transplant recipients. Indeed, one of the most important complications of BK infection is nephropathy. Viral replication in the urinary tract as assessed by the presence of "decoy cells", or by a positive PCR for BK virus has been detected in up to half of the recipients but only 5% will present nephropathy which is usually the only sign. The most common risk factors for this emerging new cause are new immunosuppressive drugs and rejection episodes. The gold standard to diagnose BK nephropathy is immunohistochemical staining for large T antigen in graft biopsy specimens. Urine cytology examination and DNA BK PCR are used as a screening test. The prognosis in BK nephropathy has been considered to be poor. The early reduction of immunosuppression can improve the prognosis and perhaps also cidofovir or leflunomide use. [less ▲]
