OBJECTIVE: To determine the association between three fibulin-3 peptides and the incidence of radiographic and clinical knee osteoarthritis (OA). DESIGN: Women between 50 and 60 years, with a BMI >/=27 kg/m2, free of knee OA, were recruited. Using binary logistic regression, the association between baseline concentration of serum fibulin (Fib)3-1, Fib3-2 and Fib3-3 and incidence of clinical and radiographic knee OA after 30 months of follow-up was evaluated. RESULTS: Baseline and follow-up measurements were available for 241 women with a mean age of 55.9 +/- 3.2 years and mean BMI of 31.7 +/- 3.6 kg/m2. None of the concentrations of the three Fib3 epitopes were associated with the incidence of medial or lateral joint space narrowing (JSN) >/=1.0 mm or the incidence of Kellgren & Lawrence (K&L) grade >/=2 after 30 months. All three Fib3 epitopes were associated with the incidence of the clinical and radiographic ACR-criteria and Fib3-1 and Fib3-3 also with chronic pain at follow-up. When adjusted for the other Fib3 peptide concentrations, only Fib3-1 was significantly associated to the incidence of the American College of Rheumatology (ACR)-criteria (OR 3.2 [1.2-8.7]) and chronic pain at follow-up (OR 3.0 [1.2-7.7]). CONCLUSIONS: Baseline fibulin-3 concentrations are associated with the incidence of clinical knee OA among middle-aged overweight and obese women. Therewith, they meet the criteria of a prognostic biomarker according to the BIPED biomarker classification for OA. Further validation of the fibulin-3 epitopes seems warranted in order to better distinguish subgroups of individuals at increased risk for knee OA development. [less ▲]

This report presents the results of the numerical simulations performed by University of Liege in the framework of work package 6 of the FICEB project financed by the Research Fund for Coal and Steel. A full scale fire test was performed in Ulster on February 27th 2010 on a composite floor for analysing the behaviour of long cellular steel beams in a complete compartment office in building structure under realistic fire conditions. The aim was to study the possibility of tensile membrane action to develop when the unprotected steel beams in the central part of the floor are made of cellular beams. Predictive numerical simulations of the test have been performed with the software SAFIR in order to define the appropriate structure to be used for the full scale fire test. As predicted, the structure was able to withstand the test without collapse. After the test, the results of the predictive simulations have been compared to the measured results, showing relatively good agreement. [less ▲]

Afin d’évaluer le caractère environnemental d’un matériau, des outils d’évaluation existent. Le plus complet est l’Analyse du Cycle de Vie qui est une méthodologie normée internationalement (ISO 14040-14044) permettant d’obtenir l’impact environnemental d’un produit tout au long de son cycle de vie. Les résultats d’une telle étude peuvent être déclinés pour obtenir une fiche de déclaration environnementale des produits étudiés, permettant d’illustrer l’impact des différentes étapes sur l’environnement. Ces fiches ont également pour but la comparaison environnementale de produits ayant la même application. Notre étude est basée sur l’évaluation environnementale de produits en pierre naturelle, à savoir la pierre bleue et le grès à travers divers produits finis. Le but premier de cette étude est de mettre en évidence les étapes responsables du plus grand impact environnemental pour chaque produit et ainsi permettre à la carrière étudiée de revoir ses positions et de modifier certaines lignes de conduite afin d’améliorer les impacts environnementaux obtenus. Au vu de la compétition asiatique régnant sur le marché des pierres naturelles, un volet supplémentaire de l’étude a été consacré à l’évaluation de l’impact environnemental des concurrents directs des produits mentionnés ci-dessus. Pour conclure, l’Analyse du Cycle de Vie va devenir, au fil des années, une démarche incontournable à étendre à chaque carrière, et à la production de matériaux de construction au sens large, afin de leur donner les ressources nécessaires pour relever le défi du développement durable.
