Dans le massif de l'Ossau, les petits mammifères d'origine méditerranéenne (Crocidura) ne dépassent pas en altitude l'étage collinéen. A l'étage montagnard, le milieu le plus rihe en espèces est constitué par les pierriers non dépourvus de végétation et entourés par la hêtraie sapinière. Ils abritent des rongeurs rupicoles et ceux qui ne sont pas strictement inféodés aux espaces herbeux découverts. La faune des petits insectivores dépend du degré d'humidité. Les taillis humides, les clairières bien arrosées et parsemées de buissons ainsi que les forêts mixtes à sous bois dense sont occupés par des populations abondantes de rongeurs et d'insectivores. Les pelouses surpâturées et les rhodoraies de l'étage subalpin sont pauvres en espèces. Il en est de même des pierriers à l'étage alpin. Toutefois, les quelques espèces qui y sont représentées peuvent former de petites populations denses et localisées à la faveur de micro millieux favorables. Les milieux les plus pauvres sont la futaie sombre à un seul étage de végétation et la rhodoraie intermédiaire entre la forêt et la pelouse alpine. [less ▲]

The bovine mastitis : from initiation to resolution The cure of a cow suffering from a bacterial mastitis relies on the balance between the eradication of the pathogen and the resolution of the inflammatory response, two processes that are essential to come back to a normal milk composition with low somatic cell count. The persistence of the inflammatory response, which main consequence is a reduction in milk yield, is a feature of chronic mastitis. This frequent disease depends on inappropriate host-pathogen interactions and is not yet well understood. This review resumes the main defence mechanisms of the bovine mammary gland, emphasizing the predominant roles played by the neutrophil, and brings some precisions on lipoxin implications in the resolution of inflammation. Reasons that may explain the persistence of the inflammatory reaction, a phenomenon found in the Staphylococcus aureus chronic mastitis, are also discussed. [less ▲]

Objectif général : Ces chapitres présentent les notions de base relatives à l'anatomie et la physiologie de la glande mammaire au cours du cycle de lactation naturellement ou artificiellement induit. Il précise également les caractéristiques générales du lait. Il présente également le contexte de la production laitière mondiale. Il décrit enfin le système de contrôle qualitatif et quantitatif de la production laitière en Wallonie. Ces notions constituent autant de prerequis indispensables à une bonne compréhension des chapitres plus spécifiques relatifs à la mammite (Chapitre 1). La mammite est une maladie de production qui présente diverses conséquences non seulement pour le producteur mais également pour le consommateur de lait et de ses dérivés. Une fois précisées la définition et les conséquences de la mammite, en seront successivement abordés les symptômes, les méthodes de diagnostic (Chapitre 2), l’étiologie (Chapitre 3), la pathogénie et le traitement (Chapitre 4). Le lecteur gardera en mémoire la double approche possible de cette pathologie : individuelle et de troupeau. [less ▲]

Au cours d'un exposé théorique présentant la revue de la littérature récente sur la mammite à coliforme, la pathophysiologie des différentes expressions cliniques sera abordée. La mammite à coliformes présente des risques majeurs de mortalité au post partum. Par ailleurs, cette affection présente des symptômes communs à d'autres affections mammaires du post-partum. Ainsi, le diagnostic clinique peut avoir des conséquences importantes en matière de choix de l'antibiotique par exemple. Par ailleurs, les techniques de fluidothérapie de base sont souvent sous-utilisées sur le terrain, pour des contraintes administratives liées à la cascade thérapeutique. Il est également marquant que cette affection entraîne des chutes importantes de production, ce qui implique que la gestion préventive de cette pathologie demeure au 21ème siècle une priorité pour le praticien moderne. Plusieurs aspects peuvent être évoqués au nombre desquels les équilibres nutritionnels du tarissement, la gestion thérapeutique du pré-partum, l'hygiène du péri-partum et le traitement intramammaire au tarissement. Enfin, la mammite colibacillaire demeure une urgence thérapeutique et trop peu souvent elle fait l'objet de conseil écrit de la part du thérapeute, ce qui, selon plusieurs études récentes, constitue en soi un facteur de risque.

Hormone production was studied in situ by immunocytochemical methods in 20 pituitary adenomas. Special attention was given to 13 adenomas removed from acromegalic patients. Out of them, 6 had mild to moderate hyperprolactinemia. Immunohistochemistry revealed PRL-containing cells without any close relationship with high PRL serum level in 6 patients. Double immunogold staining revealed mammosomatotrope cells characterized by simultaneous presence of GH and PRL in the same granules in 2 patients. Since mammosomatotropes have never been demonstrated in the normal pituitary, our results probably signify gene dysregulation in pituitary cells of those acromegalic patients. [less ▲]

Men and women imagined the presence of the Man in the Moon in order to account for the spots in the full moon. There are a number of references to him (and sometimes to a woman) in English folklore and literature (seal of Walter de Grendon, nursery rhymes, Neckam, ME poem, Chaucer, Shakespeare…). He was thought to have been exiled there and carries a thorn bush on his back because he once stole thorns from hedges (or violated some religious commandment). There is a variant of the legend in Snorri: the moon-god Máni (ON ‘moon’) once took two children from earth when they were coming from a spring carrying a bushel and a pole on their shoulders; as can be seen from the earth, the boy and the girl are still in the sky and follow the moon. I want to argue that this familiar Scandinavian and English figure – but also present in France and Wallonia -probably derives from an ancient Germanic myth that developed slightly differently among the Northern and Western countries, and that the two traditions eventually merged due to the contacts between the Scandinavians and the English.

Objectives To investigate the way men experience abortion from a psychodynamic perspective in order to understand better the impact of this experience on their own image as men and on the couple’s relationship. Methods In-depth semi-structured interviews with 16 men in Belgium and 14 men in Greece. Results Intrapsychic factors seem to play for men an important role in their experience of abortion, whatever their cultural context and contraceptive practices. Two-thirds of the men who agreed to participate in the research disagreed with their partner’s decision to have an abortion. Such men may feel that it is impossible for them to fulfill themselves, in particular as potential fathers. This impossibility is, according to men, linked to women’s attitudes, but may also be related to their own difficult identification with parental images and to socioprofessional concerns. Conclusions Abortion can create tensions and/or conflicts between partners by revealing their contradictory desires. It is suggested that institutions where men and women are heard can help both partners to outlive this experience as a constructive step in their personal psychosocial evolution and in their relationship.

The ITU’s (International Telecommunication Union’s) man-made noise levels are based on measurements performed in the 1970s. Some measurements have been carried out since then, showing that noise caused by automotive ignition systems has been reduced, but manmade noise in business areas and city centers increased, especially due to the widespread use of electronic systems. The interference scenario also changed, from analog communication systems in relatively free-space conditions, to digital systems in living areas, often semi-enclosed such as offi ces, industrial production plants, and even inside cars and trains. Several measurements have therefore been carried out to estimate the level of man-made noise in these semi-enclosed environments. [less ▲]

1. Introduction Chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection currently affects about 400 million people and is responsible for 500,000 to 1,000,000 deaths annually worldwide from cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) (1). For this reason, screening high risk populations to identify HBV infected persons is important so that guidelines for treatment and prevention of transmission can be given in this specific group. Recently, new drugs became available for HBV and new insights in resistance and definitions came up. So, the purpose of this paper is providing an update of the recent literature and guidelines concerning 1. screening for chronic hepatitis B (CHB) 2. management of patients with CHB 3. treatment of CHB in mono-infected patients and in special patient populations (co-infected, transplanted and immunosuppressed patients). The recommendations are based onpublished information and the level of evidence is reported with each recommendation. The level of evidence is graded as :grade 1 : randomized controlled trials ; grade II-1 : controlled trials without randomization ; grade 11-2 : cohort or case-control analytic study ; grade 11-3 : multiple time series, dramatic uncontrolled experiments ; grade III : descriptive epidemiology, expert opinions.
