Le contexte dans lequel s’inscrit la décision commentée est tragique. Elle a pour toile de fond les massacres perpétrés au Rwanda au cours de la guerre civile qui secoua ce pays dans le courant de l’année 1994. Plus précisément, des victimes directes et indirectes de l’attaque du cantonnement basé à l’ETO entendaient engager, entre autre, la responsabilité civile de l’Etat belge en lui reprochant la décision d’évacuation de l’enceinte de l’ETO qui s’est soldée in concreto par l’abandon de deux mille réfugiés rwandais aux mains des miliciens Interahamwe et des gendarmes rwandais. Les faits se déroulèrent le 11 avril 1994. Les actions civiles furent introduites devant le tribunal de première instance de Bruxelles respectivement le 7 avril 2004 et le 4 décembre 2007. Le moyen tiré de la prescription de l’action civile fut, dès lors, l’un des premiers à être soulevé par l’Etat belge. C'est le moyen tiré de la prescription qui est analysé tant sous l'angle pénal que sous l'angle civil. Le commentaire s'attache encore à mettre en lumière les conséquences à tirer lorsque le fait fautif est constitutif d’une infraction imprescriptible et qu’il implique une personne morale de droit public bénéficiant d’une immunité pénale.

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Despite the availability of effective vaccines for certain animal species, vaccination against dermatophytosis requires improvement and further development in both animals and humans. This review provides an update on the current situation and focuses on recent advances in host-dermatophyte relationships that could have implications for future vaccination against the most prevalent of the fungal diseases. RECENT FINDINGS: Numerous dermatophytic virulence factors have recently been isolated and characterized at the molecular level, notably secreted proteases involved in the invasion of the keratin network. Their precise roles in the different steps of the infectious process and in immunopathogenesis are being studied, while all aspects of the host immune response against dermatophytes, including the innate response, are becoming increasingly documented. In addition, new molecular tools are now available for studying dermatophytes, which will accelerate research on this topic. SUMMARY: The growth of knowledge concerning all aspects of the host-dermatophyte relationship should contribute towards sound strategies for the development of effective and safe vaccines against dermatophytosis.

Inflammatory bowel diseases are multifactorial polygenic diseases. The author has worked on the characterisation of the mucosal immuno-inflammatory reaction, on genetic predisposition and on potential clinical application of blood immuno-inflammatory markers in these diseases. This paper summarizes some aspects of this work, focusing on TNF. Following points are developed: production of TNF by inflamed mucosa, genetic control of TNF production, TNF gene polymorphim in inflammatory bowel disease, and evaluation of serum TNF as a marker of disease activity or evolutivity.

We are confronted daily to unknown microorganisms that have yet to be characterized, detected, and/ or analyzed. We propose, in this study, a multidimensional strategy using polyclonal antibodies, consisting of a novel proteomic tool, the ProteomeLab PF2D, coupled to immunological techniques and mass spectrometry ( i-PF2D-MS/MS). To evaluate this strategy, we have applied it to Bacillus subtilis, considered here as our unknown bacterial model. [less ▲]

Immuno-polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is an extremely sensitive detection method, combining the specificity of antibody detection and the sensitivity of PCR. We have developed an immuno-quantitative PCR (iqPCR), exploiting real-time PCR technology, in order to improve this immuno-detection method and make it quantitative. To illustrate the advantages of iqPCR, we have compared it with a conventional enzyme linked immuno sorbent assay (ELISA) technique in experiments aimed at detecting the cellular and the resistant form of prion protein in bovine brain extract. The iqPCR technique proved to be more sensitive than ELISA, so it could be a technique of choice for the diagnosis of infected animals both at an ante mortem and post-mortem stage. [less ▲]

Influenza A viruses cause annual epidemics and occasional pandemics that spread worldwide. The nucleoprotein is essential for the survival of this virus and is thus well-conserved. We developed a quantitative electronic biosensor displaying a protein recognition thanks to the covalent grafting of anti-nucleoprotein antibodies. The detection device lies on interdigitated array microelectrodes (IDAM), covered with alumina (Al2O3) to protect the underlying aluminum and enhance the electrical coupling. As the dimensions of the IDAM can determine the sensitivity of the sensor, we processed 4 structures with varying electrode widths and spacings in the same silicon chip and assessed their individual performance. The sensing area of each sensor is 200*200 µm2 and the overall chip-size is 3*3 mm2. The sensor is mounted in a DIL-16-package partially encapsulated by resin. [less ▲]
