As a result of pollution from atmospheric dusts, some sites of Wallonia (Belgium) are contaminated by metallic trace elements (MTE) such as cadmium, lead and zinc. These metalliferous soils are called ‘calaminary sites’. The major aim of this study concerns the multi-scalar characterization of MTE distribution in these contaminated soils and landscapes. The strategy of sampling described in this paper is based on the influence of soil type and its land use on the fate of MTE. After analysis of collected samples, it will be possible to have an idea of the distribution of MTE among soil components, and therefore, to evaluate the risks caused by environmental changes such as an agricultural use of afforested areas.

Solid organ transplantation (SOT) currently represents the best therapeutic option in end-stage diseases caused by the irrevocable functional loss of an organ. Still, SOT is associated with immunological and non-immunological injuries, whose severity impacts on early functional recovery and long-term survival of the transplant. Current research focuses on the identification of innovative approaches to 1) attenuate ischemia/reperfusion-induced damage, 2) accelerate processes of tissue repair, and 3) induce in fine graft tolerance. Encouraging observations from both preclinical studies and clinical trials suggest that the administration of mesenchymal stromal cells at the time of SOT might be beneficial, as a result of theirs immunomodulatory, anti-inflammatory and regenerative properties.

The farrier is an important actor on the equine locomotor apparatus. The objective of this communication is to show direct and indirect interests for the farrier to use some radiological informations in his work. Today, however the existence of some new sophisticated imaging technics, radiography is the first choice to appreciate an equine locomotor lesion. The direct interest of radiography, when it concerns the distal limb, is to guide to the conception of an adapted orthopeadic horseshoe. The indirect interest of radiography, when it concerns proximal regions like shoulder, back or pelvic, is to help in the understanding of the whole horse as the loading of the joints is closely connected (Noble et al. 2010).The Objective of this presentation is to propose the basis in radiography of the horse, to give some examples in the equine digit radiopathology and to explain how several radiographic informations could be used by the farrier in his work process.

INTRODUCTION: The technique of induced expectoration generates sputum by the inhalation of hypertonic saline. On account of its non-invasive character, its simplicity, its relative harmlessness, its cost effectiveness and its reproducibility this technique, that appeared in the early 1990's, has rapidly established itself as the technique of choice in the investigation of bronchial inflammation in asthma. STATE OF THE ART: We present the results of our studies that have contributed to the validation of the technique at the methodological level and to the exploitation of the cellular contents as much as the fluid phase of the expectorations in characterising bronchial inflammation in asthmatics. Our results confirm an infiltration of the airways of asthmatics with eosinophils that appears to be proportional to the severity of the illness. We evaluate the effect of inhaled steroids and of theophylline on sputum eosinophilia and bronchial reactivity and discuss the role of eosinophils on bronchial hyperreactivity. Finally we discuss the use of induced expectoration in clinical practice in asthma. PERSPECTIVES: The analysis of induced sputum could well become a valuable tool in the clinical evaluation and monitoring of asthma in the same way as symptoms and abnormalities of lung function. CONCLUSIONS: Induced expectoration has certainly contributed to the understanding of the cellular and molecular mechanisms of asthma as well as the role of bronchial inflammation in the clinical manifestations of the disease.

Patients suffering from end stage renal disease (ESRD) have a very reduced quality of life accompanied by a severe emotional distress (high worries-anxiety-depression). However, in Belgium, no regular psychological intervention is proposed to dialyzed patients. Our objective is to show that psychological intervention can significantly decrease the emotional distress of patients with ESRD. Eleven sessions of structured interventions are proposed to ESRD patients. Eligibility criteria are to be major, to not present confusion or/and dementia, to have been on dialysis treatment for at least 3 months, to have obtained 14 or more on HAD-scale. Interventions carry on the management of anxious and depressive symptoms and of the disease itself. This constitutes three independent modules. Questionnaires are filled in by the patients at various stages to evaluate the anxiety and the depression (HADS), the worries (Penn State) and the quality of life (KDQoL-SF). Results for the 47 ESRD patients show a significant reduction of the scores of anxiety, depression and worries and a significant growth of quality of life. In parallel a decrease in the serum calcium-phosphorus product analyzed before dialysis has been noted. [less ▲]

To study the importance of the spatial analysis in the control of soil heterogeneity in experiment on field, three approaches of statistical analysis were applied to a total height of trees measured at 29 years of age in a comparative test of thirty origins of Aleppo pine (Pinus halepensis Mill.), autochtonous and introduced in Tunisia. Analysis without control of heterogeneity (totally random), with a global control of heterogeneity (complete blocks) and with a local control of heterogeneity (nearest neighbour models) were used. For this last approach using to estimate the plot fertility the one of the nearby plots, various combinations of neighbour were tested with one or two coefficients of regression. The obtained results showed that the reduction of the residual mean square by comparison to the analysis without control of heterogeneity is 30 % to the complete blocks analysis and varied between 66 and 79 % for spatial analysis. Significant positive correlations between plots residues and the average of the residues of the nearby plots were observed before adjustment of data. After adjustment of data by the nearest neighbour models, these correlations were registered a reduction from 92 to 95 % according to the used model. Among the six nearest neighbour models studied, the model bringing in eight neighbours with two coefficients of regression showed itself the most effective. It also seemed that after adjustment of data by nearest neighbour models, using the structure of blocks does not produce a reduction of the residual mean square. [less ▲]

Introduction : Over the past ten years, radial shock wave therapy usage has grown tremendously. Prescribed for chronic tendinopathy, its real benefit has yet to be demonstrated. Objective : Demonstrate radial shock wave therapy benefits in plantar fasciitis treatment. Materials and methods : Our experimentation is a study over twelve weeks divided in 2 periods: the control phase (week 0 to week 6) and treatment phase (week 6 to week 11). It includes 3 evaluations (T1, T2 and T3) respectively at 0, 6 and 11 weeks. A standard evaluation consists of one VAS pain, an algo-functional backwash survey about the ankle (modified FFI), algometer test and dynamic analysis of the foot on strength platform. The radial shock wave therapy has been performed thanks to Swiss DolorClast machine (Electro Medical Systems) Results : Statistical analysis show radial shock wave therapy induces a highly significant improvement (p<0,0001) on EVA results (50%), ankle algo-functional backwash (62.6%) and pain sensitivity threshold (49.6%). Therefore, a significant correlation can be observed during T2- T3 period between pain sensitivity threshold improvement and patients age (p=0,012). The statistical results show a time increase trend for foot-ground contact over time. It is not significant though. Conclusion : The use of radial shock wave therapy in plantar fasciitis treatment helps decrease pain and improve step. However, additional studies performed on bigger samples have to be completed to confirm these results. [less ▲]

La « Bleue Mixte » (BM) est une race à petit effectif localisée de part et d’autre de la frontière franco-belge. Menacée de disparition, elle bénéficie d’un projet transfrontalier BlueSel soutenu par le programme européen INTERREG IV et les autorités françaises et wallonnes. L’objectif de ce projet est d’assurer la conservation, la sélection et la promotion de la BM. L’un des volets du programme a consisté à étudier la rentabilité économique des troupeaux BM. Il s’est appuyé sur un réseau de 16 fermes de références mis en place fin 2008 jusque mi 2012. La collecte des données techniques et économiques sur les 4 années comptables de 2007 à 2010 a reposé sur la méthodologie mise en oeuvre au sein du dispositif français des Réseaux d’élevage. Les exploitations BM ont été regroupées selon deux systèmes, herbivore et polyculture-élevage, et comparées aux exploitations laitières Prim’Holstein (PH) du Réseau d’élevage de Nord-Picardie. Les résultats démontrent la capacité des éleveurs de vaches BM à obtenir de bonnes performances économiques malgré de plus faibles productivité laitière (4225 l/VL) et taux (3,70 % de MG et 3,22 % de protéines), et un moindre prix du lait, grâce notamment à une conduite de troupeaux bien maîtrisée, des surfaces fourragères très bien valorisées, et la mixité lait-viande très affirmée de la race qui atténue les fluctuations du prix du lait. En système herbivore, les exploitations BM s’avèrent économes et autonomes avec une excellente valorisation des prairies. En système de polyculture-élevage, les troupeaux sont conduits de façon à peine plus intensive qu’en système herbivore, contrairement aux troupeaux PH. [less ▲]
