From 1992 to 1995, dead seabirds found on Belgian beaches were collected and various tissues of 241 birds were sampled for histopathological, bacteriological, parasitological, and toxicological investigations. The most common species examined was the guillemot (Uria aalge). Necropsies revealed cachexia (severe emaciation), acute haemorrhagic gastro-enteropathy and oil contamination in many of these birds. Statistical analyses were performed in order to explore correlations of these with biological parameters such as age, sex, and origin (pelagic or non-pelagic). The pelagic origin of seabirds were associated with the three main findings. Oil contamination was associated with acute gastro-enteropathy and cachexia, and cachexia was more prevalent among juveniles. Finally, cachexia and acute gastro-enteropathy were strongly associated. It is possible that oiled pelagic seabirds become cachectic and die of acute gastro-enteropathy. (C) 1997 International Council for the Exploration of the Sea. [less ▲]

Animal performance, composition and quality of meat from Belgian Blue bulls either fattened indoors (FI) or finished indoors after a previous grazing period were studied during six years. During the grazing period, three intensification managements were tested on a permanent pasture conducted as set stocking. The intensification levels were either high (HN:140 kg N(.)ha(-1) with 6 bulls(.)ha(-1)) or moderate with a 33% reduction of nitrogen fertilisation but with the same stocking rate (MN:93 kg N(.)ha(-1), 6 bulls(.)ha(-1)) or low with no nitrogen fertiliser but with a reduced stocking rate (ON, 4 bulls(.)ha(-1)). The levels of intensification did not affect sward characteristics and chemical composition of the grass. The apparent nitrogen efficiency per ha was larger in the ON plot than in the HN and MN plots ( 26 vs. 14%). The average daily gain of bulls during the grazing season was similar in the three groups at 1.0 kg(.)d(-1). The bulls from the FI group were characterised by average daily gains significantly higher than the bulls which were previously grazed and then finished indoors (1.5 vs. 1.2 kg(.)d(-1); P < 0.01). The slaughter weight, the carcass composition, the dressing percentage and most of the meat quality parameters were similar between the treatment groups. The inclusion of a grazing period in the fattening system produced a meat which was darker (lower L*, P < 0.01), more red (higher a*, P < 0.05) and had a higher content of linolenic acid (C18:3 n-3) than that of the animals fattened indoors.

Narrow diameter implants (NDIs) are increasingly produced and used in implant dentistry especially since the introduction of new and more resistant materials. The objective of the present study was to evaluate the clinical performance of NDIs (3.3 mm) placed in thin alveolar crests. Methods: Twenty consecutive patients needing implant-supported fixed partial dentures and presenting an alveolar thickness ≤ 6 mm were treated with one or several NDIs. The surgical protocol was chosen according to the clinical situation: °1 flapless; °2 mini-cervical flap; 3° wide flap; 4° wide flap + guided bone regeneration (GBR). Implants were immediately loaded if the primary stability was higher than 20 Ncm. Implant survival and success, prosthodontic success rates and patient-centered outcomes were evaluated after a follow-up period of 1 year. Results: A total of 39 implants were placed in 20 patients, 12 and 27 implants in the anterior regions and in the posterior mandible, respectively. All implants but one reached an insertion torque higher than 20 Ncm and were loaded within 48 hours. The implant survival and success rates both reached 94.7 %. The need for GBR was avoided in 60 % of the implant sites. The mean peri-implant bone remodeling after a follow-up period of 1 year was -0.35 mm at the implant level. Peri-implant bone remodeling was higher in the posterior region, when the alveolar crest was thinner than 4 mm and GBR was required in addition.Conclusion: The use of NDIs to restore partial edentation in sites with limited horizontal bone thickness seems to be an effective treatment option that prevented GBR in the majority of the present cases. Immediate provisionalization of NDIs does not seem to impair the results. [less ▲]

Busulfan is commonly used in preparative conditioning regimens prior to hematopoietic stem cell transplantation in children and young adults for malignant and non-malignant disorders. For many years Busulfan was only available in an oral form, resulting in large inter- and intra-patients variability in plasma exposure, associated with higher graft failure rate as well as higher toxicity such as venoocclusive disease. With the development of an intravenous formulation of Busulfan, a more accurate control of both the inter- and intra-patient variability has been provided. The goal of this study was to evaluate the use and efficacy of intravenous Busulfan in comparison with the oral formulation in children undergoing an autologous transplantation after conditioning with Busulfan. Despite the small number of patients, this study confirmed the apparent benefit of intravenous Busulfan in children undergoing an autologous HSCT. The use of a 5-level dose schedule defined by body weight resulted in an efficient engraftment with marked reduction in the incidence of veno-occlusive disease compared with oral Bu. In terms of diseasefree outcome, survival and event-free survival, similar results have been obtained in both groups. The choice of this formulation of Busulfan should therefore be considered.

The recently published results of the ONTARGET trial shed a new light on the cardiovascular protection of patients at high risk of a cardiovascular event. Despite a number of trials looking at the efficacy of Angiotensin Converting Enzyme inhibitors (ACEis) or Angiotensin Receptor Blockers (ARBs) in the prevention of cardiovascvular events in patients with specific high risk profiles, the question of the equivalence of ACEis and ARBs remained unanswered. The ONTARGET trial has shown that telmisartan 80 mg administered for a median duration of 4.5 years to patients at high risk of developing a major cardiovascular event, is equally effective to ramipril 10 mg. In addition, telmisartan was slightly better tolerated. The comparator ramipril has been chosen as it is currently the gold standard ACEi since the results of the HOPE study, in terms of the composite outcome of cardiovascular death, myocardial infarction and stroke. Moreover, ONTARGET is the first trial to test the hypothesis of superiority of adding an ARB (telmisartan 80 mg) to an ACEI (ramipril 10 mg) over the ACEi ramipril monotherapy in cardiovascular protection of the same broad range of high-risk patients. Surprisingly, despite a more pronounced blood pressure lowering, the combination of the two agents did not lead to an additional decrease in the number of events, but had significantly more side-effects compared to ramipril monotherapy. ONTARGET is a landmark study, performed according to the highest statistical and clinial standards, providing compelling evidence and clear answers to two important clinical questions. [less ▲]

This paper shows the links between migrant transnationalism and the methodological debates concerning the researcher’s positionality and self-reflexivity, which have not been systematically considered in transnational studies. Drawing from my experiences as a transnational female migrant conducting fieldwork among Andean domestic workers in the city of Brussels; I intent to contribute to the conceptualization of positionality by reflecting on the effect of the researcher’s transnational gender, class and race positions in qualitative migration research. Firstly, I address the conflicts that arose from my positioning as an “insider” that initially granted me a social proximity with my participants but later raised awareness on the existent social boundaries between us and temporarily blocked my access to the field. Secondly, I will highlight the methodological strategies through, which I worked around the existent boundaries of power relations and eventually gained access to the field, meaning: A- Constantly, engaging in self-reflexivity and questioning my “insider/outsider positioning, B- Consciously and unconsciously negotiating my class, gender and race positioning’s in order to re-draw the boundaries in the relationship between the participants and the researcher, C- Relying on my experiences as a transnational migrant in order to grasp the meaning of their practices, which guided me to avoid my spontaneous interpretations and reconsider those that my participants gave me . Finally, I will argue that both mobilizing one’s personal background and negotiating our intersecting transnational positionalities during fieldwork constitute valuable methodological resources that might lead us to do research that is produced through more symmetrical relations.

After reviewing biological diversity data concerning tropical countries, main biodiversity issues and challenges are listed. The evolution of the “ethnoecology” concept and its present meaning are examined. Starting from two or four roots, including ethnoagronomy, ethnoecology is taking progressively a dominant position regarding local knowledge as well as in modern ecosystems’ management. The various levels of environmental knowledge are pinpointed from examples taken in Tibet, pre-Saharan Morocco, Guinea-Bisseau, Upper Katanga and Zambia, and finally Bolivia. Lessons from the past are highlighted through present ecological studies and interaction outputs are stressed and discussed. Finally, a success story of validation of non-woody forest product is presented, with the establishment of a business subject regarding wild edible mushrooms from the wetter miombo area of South Central Africa.
