In the education of bioengineers at Gembloux, the concept of information literacy was chosen as a guide for information literacy education. This concept describes a set of skills that allow individuals to recognize an information need and enable them to locate, evaluate and use information needed. The concept of information literacy has evolved over the last two decades. This essay traces, through five articles and a review of the literature on the subject, the evolution of the concept. It also presents ways to implement information literacy education with a methodological approach, starting by the identification of the need of information to solve a problem to the production of a scientific communication (a homework, a conference, a scholarly paper...). This work addresses also the question of the relative invisibility of the concept of information literacy outside information specialists such as librarians. The major objective is to demonstrate that information literacy education is going well beyond the library. The skills involved are also intellectual, social and cultural skills. They include media and new information technologies and are not limited to technical or technological skills. Information literacy has become an autonomous discipline, with specific content, evolving, to talk about a didactic. Information literacy courses held in Gembloux should be considered as tools to improve the training of bioengineers and particularly the quality of their scientific publications. [less ▲]

This article is written from a doctoral work on the role of scientific literature in the bioengineers' teaching at Gembloux. It is essentially a summary including recent advances in information literacy. Data analysis indicates that the bioengineers working at Gembloux publish at least as much as other scientists in Belgium, they preferentially publish articles in journals with impact factor, they read preferentially articles and they use all electronic resources available to them. Their fields of research, and reading, goes beyond the strict sense of agronomy. The courses provided at Gembloux are based on the concept of information literacy. It describes a set of skills that allow individuals to recognize an information need and enable them to locate, valuate and use needed information. The Information Literacy concept has evolved over the last two decades. Information literacy education is going well beyond the library. The skills involved are also social and cultural skills besides intellectual skills. They include media and new information technologies without being reduced to technical or technological skills. At Gembloux, the information literacy education, is registered in student's schedule, integrates production of scientific papers and is based on a methodological approach and his own didactic and specific contents.

In Europe, because of previous intense forest use in the past centuries, the plantation of coniferous stands, especially Norway spruce with high production potential has been a common strategy. However, the characteristics of Norway spruce such a s susceptibility to windfall, forest dieback and soil acidification have caused negative ecological impacts at many sites. Conversion of conifers into deciduous or mixed stands has been suggested in order to improve ecological conditions and biodiversity o f forest ecosystems. In this study, six broadleaved species were planted at the same site, thus being subjected to similar condition in terms of soil type, land use history and climate. The aim of this research was to study of foliar nutrient status and nu trient return to the forest floor through litterfall 11 years after conversion of Norway spruce (Picea abie s (L.) KARST.) into a mixed stand with common alder (Alnus glutinosa (L.) GAERTN.), european beech (Fagus sylvatica L.), pedunculate oak (Quercus rob ur L.), silver birch (Betula pendula ROTH.), goat willow (Salix caprea L.) and rowan (Sorbus aucuparia L.). Our results revealed that tree species had a different foliar nutrient status and an effect on nutrient input fluxes through litterfall. For example , litter nutrient contents (N, Ca, Mg, K) were highest under alder, rowan and willow. Total litterfall and nutrient fluxes from leaf litter were highest under rowan. Our results demonstrate that, on poor sites, plantation of pioneer species, especially row an, may improve the nutrient status of the forest floor through higher input in litterfall. [less ▲]

Little by little, nanotechnology has emerged amid enormous anticipations and fantastic promises of new materials, aspiring to manipulate our world “atom by atom.” While these grand visions continue to capture the imaginations of various audiences—and continue to be contested, as well—nanotechnology has developed into more than that. During the last two decades, many research programs and industrial R&D expenditures have resulted in actual products and tangible innovations. Nanotechnology, it seems, is expanding. But what does it mean to say that nanotechnology is expanding? [less ▲]

This work starts from the consideration that the Christian liturgy plays a key role all over the Europe during the XII and XIII centuries. The aim of the study is to demonstrate that—at least for this reason—a high number of troubadours were influenced by the liturgy while composing a courtly song. In particular, the analysis shows the presence of liturgical traits since the first documented troubadour, i.e. William IX. Indeed, his works show his familiarity with the metrical and melodic structures of hymns and prosulae, as well as his knowledge about the cult of the saints in the area of Limoges. Moreover, the present study demonstrates the recollection of some prayers, liturgical formulae and Biblical excerpts in some troubadours, e.g. Marcabru and Peire d’Alvernhe; the correspondence between the believer’s and the poet’s gestures in Gaucelm Faidit’s texts; the influence of the sacraments—specifically the penitence—over most troubadours all over the XII and XIII centuries, and lastly the recurring employment of metaphors with a liturgical origin, such as the ‘fire of love’.

Taking into account the close antigenic relationship between bovine herpesvirus 1 (BoHV-1) and caprine herpesvirus 1 (CpHV-1), a live attenuated glycoprotein E (gE) negative BoHV-1 vaccine was assessed in goats with the aim to protect against CpHV-1 infection. Vaccine safety was evaluated by intranasal inoculation of two groups of goats with either a gE-negative BoHV-1 vaccine or a virulent BoHV-1. The length of viral excretion and the peak viral titre were reduced with the gE-negative vaccine. To assess the efficacy, two goats were inoculated intranasally twice 2 weeks apart with a gE-negative BoHV-1 vaccine. Four weeks later, immunised and control goats were challenged with CpHV-1. A 2 log(10) reduction in the peak viral titre was observed and the challenge virus excretion lasted 2 days more in immunised than in control goats. These data indicate the safety and the partial efficacy of a live attenuated gE-negative BoHV-1 vaccine intranasally administrated in goats. (c) 2005 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. [less ▲]

OBJECTIVE: To examine the factors associated with liver steatosis in severely obese subjects and to test the potential reversibility of fatty liver after weight loss. DESIGN: Retrospective clinical study. SUBJECT: 528 obese patients before bariatric surgery and 69 obese subjects of the initial cohort evaluated before and 27+/-15 months after gastroplasty. MEASUREMENTS: Fatty deposition (scored as mild, moderate or severe) and inflammatory changes were evaluated in liver biopsies; clinical (body mass index (BMI), age, gender, duration of obesity) and biological (glucose, triglycerides, liver enzymes) parameters were related to histological findings. RESULTS: 74% of the 528 biopsies showed fatty change, estimated as mild in 41% of cases, moderate in 32% and severe in 27%. The prevalence of steatosis was significantly higher in men than in women (91% vs 70%, P = 0.001) and in patients with impaired glucose tolerance or type 2 diabetes compared with nondiabetics (89% vs 69% P = 0.001). The severity of the steatosis was associated with BMI (P = 0.002) but not with the duration of obesity or the age of the patient. When compared with patients without fatty change, those with liver steatosis had significantly higher fasting plasma glucose (5.5 mmol/l vs 5.1 mmol/l, P = 0.007) and triglycerides (1.8 mmol/l vs 1.3 mmol/l, P = 0.002). Mean serum liver enzyme activities (alkaline phosphatase, aspartate aminotransferase (AST), alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and gamma-glutamyl-transpeptidase (gammaGT) were significantly (P < 0.001) increased in patients with fatty change but remained within laboratory reference values. In the 69 patients who have been evaluated after a marked weight reduction (-32+/-19kg), 45% of the biopsies were considered as normal (vs 13% before, P < 0.001) while pure fatty change was still observed in 38% of the patients (vs 83% before, P = 0.001). However, the severity of the steatosis was significantly (P < 0.001) reduced (mild: 62% vs 21%; moderate: 23% vs 37%; severe: 15% vs 42%). In addition, a significant increase of hepatitis was observed in 26% of the biopsies (vs 14% before, P < 0.05). CONCLUSIONS: Liver steatosis in obese subjects is associated with men, diabetic status, BMI, higher fasting glucose and hypertriglyceridaemia. Postgastroplasty weight loss reduces liver steatosis, but seems to increase the incidence of inflammatory lobular hepatitis. [less ▲]

Attempts to develop liver support systems for the treatment of patients with liver failure have ranged from use of plasma exchange to utilization of charcoal columns and extracorporeal devices loaded with liver tissue. However, no system has achieved wide clinical use and - in the absence of liver transplantation - severe hepatic failure continues to be associated with significant morbidity and mortality. In this paper, the authors review the current status of liver assist systems and summarize their clinical experience with a xenogeneic cell based-bioartificial liver. [less ▲]
