This study was carried out on 10 stress-negative Piétrain boars including 3 pigs of halothane genotype CC and 7 of CT at the pig breeding farm of Hanoi University of Agriculture in order to evaluate effects of season (Spring, Summer and Autumn) and halothane genotype (CC and CT) on the production performance and semen traits. The results showed that the difference in daily average gain was not significant between CC (559.57 g/day) and CT boars (546.31 g/day). The halothane genotype did not affect semen traits (P>0.05) except ejaculation volume (P<0.001). Ejaculation volume of CC genotype (270.95ml) was higher than that of CT (220.82ml). Season had significant effect on ejaculation volume, sperm concentration and pH of semen (P<0.001) as well as total number of sperms moving straight ahead per each ejaculation (P<0.05). Semen volume was highest in autumn (293.02 ml) followed by summer (195.00 ml) and spring (190.86 ml) while this tendency was inverse for sperm concentration. Total number of sperms moving straight ahead per each ejaculation was highest in Autumn (47.15 billion) followed by Spring (45.20 billion) and lowest in Summer (36.74 billion). Semen traits of the stress-negative Piétrain boars were in accordance to the standards of technical criteria for animal breeding accoprding to the DecisionNo. 1712/QĐ-BNN-CN (Ministry of Agriculture and Rural development, Vietnam), except sperm motility and growth performance were lower than specified.

A survey was carried out on 13 Vietnamese Yellow cattle, 14 LaiSind cattle and 18 buffalos in Hanoi to estimate the quality of longissimus dorsi in terms of pH, color, drip loss, cooking loss and tenderness at 6 different postmortem intervals. It was found that the pH value of longissimus dorsi was not significantly different among the 3 breeds (P>0.05), being reduced rapidly during the first 36 hours postmortem, and then stayed stable. The value was in the range that was considered to be normal. Conversely, the color values L*, a* and b* tended to increase and also stable at 36 hours postmortem, except that for LaiSind cattle at 48 hours. According to L* scale, the meat of Yellow and LaiSind cattle met the normal quality but the buffalo meat was considered to be dark cutters. The tenderness of longissimus dorsi was significantly different among the breeds (P<0.05). The value was highest at 48 hours and then decreased for LaiSind and buffalo, but for Yellow cattle the value decreased continuously after slaughtering In terms of tenderness buffalo meat and Yellow cattle meat were classified as “intermediate”, while LaiSind meat was out of this interval and classified as “tough”. Drip loss ratio was increased with the time of preservation (P<0.05). The cooking loss ratio was lowest at 12 hours and higher at the next period, but there was no significant difference among the periods after 36 hours postmotem. [less ▲]

The paper provides an introductory discussion about two fundamental models of oscillator synchronization: the (continuous-time) diffusive model, that dominates the mathematical literature on synchronization, and the (hybrid) kick model, that accounts for most popular examples of synchronization, but for which only few theoretical results exist. The paper stresses fundamental differences between the two models, such as the different contraction measures underlying the analysis, as well as important analogies that can be drawn in the limit of weak coupling.

Pancreas Transplantation aims at providing Beta cells replacement in diabetic patients, especially for type 1 diabetes recipients in whom Beta cells had been destroyed by an autoimmune process. The final achievement is to restore a normal physiological control of glucose metabolism in order to halt or reverse the secondary complications of diabetes i.e. retinopathy, neuropathy, nephropathy, micro – and macro - angiopathy [1]. That can be achieved by a vascularised pancreas graft (referred as Pancreas Transplantation, PT) or by islet grafting (referred as Islet Transplantation, IT). The former PT includes transplanting 95% of unuseful cells, the exocrine part from one pancreas, while the last one IP, embolizing into the recipient liver, Islets of Langerhans after digestion and purification of several human pancreases. Three types of PT can be performed: the pancreas and a kidney are simultaneously transplanted with a single induction of immunosuppression (IS) therapy in hoping to correct both uremia and diabetes mellitus (SPK = Simultaneous Pancreas and Kidney Transplantation); the pancreas is transplanted after a successful kidney graft allowing two induction therapies along with the basic IS treatment (PAK = Pancreas After Kidney Transplantation) ; and finally the Pancreas can be transplanted alone in pre-uremic recipients with unawareness hypoglycaemic events or with rapidly evolving secondary complications of diabetes such as proliferative retinopathy, or advanced neuropathy (PTA = Pancreas Transplantation Alone) [1]. Moreover, in SPK, both organs the Pancreas and the Kidney are procured from the same deceased donor, either donor after brain death (DBD) or donor after cardiac death (DCD). In some US institutions, a segmental pancreas and the left kidney, are procured in a living donor [2], using a laparoscopic approach in the more recent year [3]. For PAK, in order to avoid an excessive IS load and two induction therapies, other institutions had proposed whenever possible to keep in stand-by the potential live kidney donor until a cadaver whole pancreatic compatible graft is available [1]. By contrast, the number of PTA remains limited in non uremic recipients with life-threatening complications of diabetes, in whom one might hope to avoid the hypoglycaemic events with a successful graft. That can also be achieved with IT. But except for rare cases, insulin independence with IT requires more than a single human pancreas and is limited over time [1]. Moreover, IT needs costly materials, chambers and rooms for preparation. That’s why IT will not be included in the present report. [less ▲]

Worldwide shortage of standard brain dead donors (DBD) has revived the use of kidneys donated after circulatory death (DCD). We reviewed the Belgian DCD kidney transplant (KT) experience since its reintroduction in 2000. Risk factors for delayed graft function (DGF) were identified using multivariate analysis. Five-year patient/graft survival was assessed using Kaplan–Meier curves. The evolution of the kidney donor type and the impact of DCDs on the total KT activity in Belgium were compared with the Netherlands. Between 2000 and 2009, 287 DCD KT were performed. Primary nonfunction occurred in 1% and DGF in 31%. Five-year patient and death-censored graft survival were 93% and 95%, respectively. In multivariate analysis, cold storage (versus machine perfusion), cold ischemic time, and histidine-tryptophan-ketoglutarate solution were independent risk factors for the development of DGF. Despite an increased number of DCD donations and transplantations, the total number of deceased KT did not increase significantly. This could suggest a shift from DBDs to DCDs. To increase KT activity, Belgium should further expand controlled DCD programs while simultaneously improve the identification of all potential DBDs and avoid their referral for donation as DCDs before brain death occurs. Furthermore, living donation remains underused. Transplant International ISSN 0934-0874 ª [less ▲]

BACKGROUND: Associated with high morbidity and mortality, severe GBS infections should be treated with antimicrobial agents alone or in combination characterized by both a good diffusion at the site of infection and a short bactericidal lag time. Penicillin (P) or another blactam used in combination with an aminoglycoside is usually recommended to start the therapy. MICs to gentamicin (G) of GBS recently isolated in Belgium range from 16 to 256 mg/L (> or = MICs of E.faecalis with low level resistance to G, LLR). OBJECTIVES: To investigate in vitro, the potential synergism of P+G on strains of GBS isolated in Belgium. METHODS: According to Etest-AB Biodisk original procedures, for 6 Belgian strains of GBS (G MICs: 16-128 mg/L), we investigated the potential synergism, MICs and time killing curves, between P and G (ratio1:1). In the killing kinetic assays, surviving organisms were enumerated initially and repeatedly after 2, 4, 8 and 20 hours (T2, T4, T8 and T20) at concentrations of P equal to 4 and 16x MICs. Two strains of E.faecalis (1 HighLR and 1 LLR to G) were used as negative and positive control. Each isolate was tested twice. RESULTS: For GBS the P MICs in the combination were within +/- 1 dilution compared with single drug. As expected, P+G produced enhanced killing at T2 and T4 compared with P alone for G LLR E.faecalis and there was no difference for the G HLR E.faecalis. On the contrary, no accelerated killing was observed for any GBS isolate with the combination even for a concentration of 16xMIC of P; moreover for 3 isolates a reduced killing was observed at T2 in the combination tests compared with P alone. CONCLUSION: This limited in vitro testing of the combination P+G compared with P alone for Belgian GBS isolates did not show any synergism or accelerated killing. Moreover the killing was reduced at T2 for half of the isolates. Further evaluation should be performed on these strains with other ratio or other b-lactams as ampicillin in combination with G.

Dans mon exposé, je rends compte des mouvements disruptifs ou de dispersion qui animent l’imaginaire, c’est-à-dire les croyances partagées, et les pratiques de l’Église kimbanguiste (EJCSK) depuis les années 1990. Il s’agit : premièrement, du surgissement de figures charismatiques en marge de l’Église (les Milimo), deuxièmement, de l’apparition d’une hétérodoxie doctrinale, et, troisièmement, de la dissidence à l’œuvre dans l’Église depuis 2002. Je montre que l’Église s’emploie à contenir son risque d’éclatement en multipliant les opérations de recentrages théologiques, institutionnels et charismatiques, voire politiques et cela jusqu’au sein de sa diaspora.
