The results of the XENDOS study were presented by Professor Lars Sjostrom (Gothenburg, Sweden), on August 26, 2002, at the 9th International Congress on Obesity in Sao Paulo, Brazil. XENDOS (XENical in the prevention of Diabetes in Obese Subjects) is a multicentre, randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group prospective study performed in Sweden over a period of 4 years. The aim of XENDOS was to investigate the use of a weight loss agent (orlistat, Xenical) compared with lifestyle changes for the prevention of type 2 diabetes in obese patients (body mass index > or = 30 kg/m2). Weight loss was greater in the orlistat group (-6.9 kg; n = 1.640) than in the placebo group (-4.1 kg; n = 1.637; p < 0.001). Such a difference in weight reduction was sufficient to significantly reduce the cumulative incidence of type 2 diabetes (6.2% versus 9.0%; p = 0.0032; relative risk reduction of 37.3%). The difference was especially remarkable in obese patients with impaired glucose tolerance (21% of the cohort), with a reduction of conversion to diabetes from 28.8% in the placebo group to 18.8% in the orlistat group (p < 0.005) and a number needed to treat to avoid one event of 11 only. Significant and sustained reductions in cardiovascular risk factors such as arterial blood pressure and lipid levels were also observed in the orlistat group as compared to the placebo group. XENDOS is the first study demonstrating that an antiobesity agent, like orlistat, is able to reduce the progression to diabetes in obese subjects as compared with lifestyle changes alone. [less ▲]

We report the positive results of two large prospective studies of pharmacological prevention of type 2 diabetes presented at the EASD Congress in Glasgow, September 12, 2001. In the "Diabetes Prevention Program", metformin (2 x 850 mg/day), a biguanide compound, reduces the progression from impaired glucose tolerance towards type 2 diabetes by 31% (p < 0.001) while in the "STOP-NIDDM trial", acarbose (3 x 100 mg/day), an alpha-glucosidase inhibitor, diminished it by 24% (p < 0.002). These results are, however, less marked than those obtained with lifestyle modifications including better dietary habits and increased physical exercise (-58% versus control group, p < 0.001).

This paper contributes by containing an examination of the impact of informal networks, such as personally knowing other entrepreneurs and having access to business angel investors, have upon start-up entrepreneurs in Spain. In addition, a pseudo-panel approach is used with micro data from the Spanish Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) adult population survey over the period 2006-2009. This technique overcomes limitations found when using cross-sectional data. Moreover, this includes a short review of literature using cross- sectional data in order to identify how researchers used these data. Results show that informal networks are important for start-up entrepreneurs. Knowing other entrepreneurs personally and having access to angel investors have a positive relationship with start-up entrepreneurs. Also, the findings indicate that start- up entrepreneurs in cohorts aged 49-58 and 59-64 do better than younger ones. Furthermore, this article highlights some implications. [less ▲]

This paper presents a new rationale for delegation. In a repeated relationship, when the principal gives up at time t the control over an action to the better informed agent, the decision taken by the agent signals his private information to the principal. The revelation of information is valuable to the principal only in a context of repeated relation where the principal can use the information at time t + 1 to take another decision. In this paper, we present an example where delegation occurs only if the relation lasts for more than one period. In a single period context, if the agent has a bias in favor of one project, he does not have incentives to select a project that is not his preferred one; hence he does not disclose his private information and delegation is not valuable. While in a repeated relationship, it becomes costly for the agent to keep the principal non-informed and this counterbalances the agent’s bias for one project. Shared-control (partial delegation) is then the preferred organizational structure when the interaction is repeated. Moreover, shared-control dominates an alternative mechanism where the principal centralizes all the decisions and the information is transferred through a message game. [less ▲]

BACKGROUND: Speech–language therapists (SLTs) are encouraged to implement evidence-based practice (EBP). Nevertheless, EBP use by practitioners can be questioned. OBJECTIVES: The objective of this study was to explore Belgian French-speaking SLTs’ information behaviour and their awareness of EBP. The collected data allow one to determine how far they have embraced this approach. METHODS: The two Belgian French-speaking SLT professional associations promoted an online questionnaire survey by email. Additionally, clinical supervisors of students were asked to participate. In March 2012, 2068 emails were sent. RESULTS: The participation rate was at least 20% (n = 415). The reported information needs mainly concerned treatment or diagnosis. Most of the time, to attempt to fulfil their information needs, SLTs relied on their own resources (personal experience and libraries) and on colleagues in the workplace. When they searched on the Internet, they preferred to use a general search engine rather than a specialised bibliographic database. Barriers to obtaining scientific information are highlighted. Only 12% of the respondents had already heard about EBP. CONCLUSION: This study provides the first overview of the information behaviour of SLTs working in the French community of Belgium. Several recommendations are suggested for SLTs and librarians. [less ▲]
