L'Entre-Sambre-et-Meuse a été le siège d'une épidémie de néphropathie épidémique à Hantavirus (NE) en 199293. Cinq cas ont été rencontrés au CHU de Liège en moins d'un an. Le virus responsable de cette affection appartient à la famille dès Hantavirus dont il existe huit sérotypes aux caractéristiques propres en terme de vecteur (rongeurs), de distribution géographique et de pathogénicité. Les pathologies induites chez l'homme vont de la néphropathie épidémique à Hantavirus - d'évolution le plus souvent bénigne- au syndrome pulmonaire à Hantavirus (SPH) - fréquemment mortel - en passant par la fièvre hémorragique avec syndrome rénal (FHSR) de sévérité intermédiaire. Dans nos contrées, on rencontre le sérotype Puumala dont le vecteur est le campagnol roussâtre. L'homme s'infecte par inhalation de particules contaminées et développe dans un pourcentage non précisé des cas, après une période d'incubation de 1 à 3 semaines, un tableau clinique de néphropathie épidémique à Hantavirus. Celui-ci se caractérise par l'apparition brutale d'une fièvre, de myalgies diffuses, de douleurs abdominales et/ou lombaires et de céphalées. Apparaissent ensuite à des degrés divers: nausées et vomissements, oligurie, myopie aiguë, toux,diathèse hémorragique, diarrhée... Biologiquement, on observe l'association d'une insuffisance rénale aiguë et d'une thrombopénie. L'évolution est spontanément favorable dans les deux à trois semaines. Le diagnostic suggéré par la clinique sera confirmé par la sérologie. La physiopathologie de l'insuffisance rénale et de la thrombopénie fait intervenir des interactions complexes entre l'hôte et le virus. Il n'existe pas de thérapeutique spécifique pour la néphropathie épidémique à Hantavirus. Les formes plus sévères (SPH et FHSR) peuvent bénéficierd'un traitement par Ribavirineen iv. [less ▲]

We report the case of an acute renal failure due to an acute interstitial nephropathy (ATIN) induced by non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID). Even though this pathology is a rare cause of acute renal failure, it still requires special attention in view of the fact that it induces a high risk of acute morbidity but it also can evolve into chronic renal failure. Its differential diagnosis with other causes of acute renal failure becomes essential because of the different therapeutic care. In this article, we are going to briefly sum up the reasoning to adopt in order to diagnose an acute renal failure. [less ▲]

An empirical model called NeQuick has been selected for the modelling and correction of the ionospheric delay contribution in GALILEO single frequency receivers. The current baseline version of NeQuick for GALILEO is the one available in the International Telecommunication Union – Radiocommunication Sector (ITU-R) since 2001. From that time, several improvements have been proposed leading to the need of a better understanding and comparison of these different versions and an analysis of the weaknesses. Better results have been obtained by means of simpler ionosonde and profile parameters calculations, different topside formulation and new data files. The interest of a newer version of NeQuick including the above-mentioned modifications is highlighted as its error behaviour towards latitude shows a better agreement with reality. Those modifications should be coupled to a less simplistic topside formulation involving several layers with appropriate transitions such as the proposal introduced in this paper. The need of a different treatment regarding the daily effective use of the model for GALILEO single frequency algorithm compared to a physical use (that uses monthly median underlying data) is addressed. For the analysis and comparison of the different variants of the model, a software tool with a Graphical User Interface was developed. Preliminary comparisons for the physical use between different versions and also between modelled and measured data are presented. Such comparisons should be extended in the future for the effective use of the model. Finally, the structure and analysis of the mentioned issues and the results of the different comparisons are shown. Also solutions or potential paths to investigate solutions are proposed. [less ▲]

We reviewed 355 nerve biopsies analysed at the Laboratories of Neuropathology of the Born-Bunge Foundation/University of Antwerp (BBF/UIA) and University of Liege (ULg) between 1987 and 1997. We examined the indications for nerve biopsy, the yield of the procedure, and the influence of clinical and neuropathological parameters. Contributory biopsies accounted for 35.5% and 47.3% respectively at ULg and BBF/UIA laboratories: of these, one third showed specific histological findings, the majority being informative only when combined with the relevant clinical data. The profile of indications for nerve biopsy was roughly comparable in both laboratories. The search for an inflammatory neuropathy prompted 35-40% of all biopsies with more than 50% of specimens being informative in this indication. The lowest yield (20%) was obtained among the nerve biopsies performed in the absence of any presumptive aetiology. These accounted for 22-33% of all cases. Inadequate surgical resection, delays in transport or processing errors precluded histological study of 4% (BBF/UIA) to 8% (ULg) of the specimens. We conclude that nerve biopsies should be performed by experienced surgeons and handled in specialised laboratories. Only a relatively small number of causes of neuropathy can be diagnosed on the basis of histology alone. More often, contributory biopsies will result from the combination of non-specific suggestive histological features with relevant clinical information. The diagnostic yield of nerve biopsy is function of careful patient selection and close collaboration between the clinician and the neuropathologist. [less ▲]

The manifestations of the nerves are physical, cognitive and behavioural. They vary according to the genre, the task and the public. According to the literature, many vocal parameters are influenced by the exam nerves. Our goal is to study the manifestations of the nerves in 26 students (10 men and 16 women, mean age: 33.3 y) during their musical examination. They sang a score “a cappella”. We recorded the musical performance 4 months before examination (T1), the day before (T2) and the examination's day (T3). Each student evaluated his global degree of nervousness, filled in the Cungi’s scales (stress scale) and explained his strategy of coping. 2 expert judges noted the students at the T3. A speech therapist also evaluated them on the basis of 4 objective criteria. Moreover, we measured the frequency parameters, jitter, intensity, duration and HNR with Praat. The comparison of the results at each time shows that the men and the women obtain results significantly higher at T3 for their degrees of nervousness and their level of intensity. In the same way, the note evaluated by the judges for the whole of the subjects is correlated with that of the speech therapist (rho: 0.71; 0.79). For the women at T3, we observe five positive correlations and one negative. The more the women evaluate their degree of stress strongly, the more judge n°2 evaluates it strongly (rho: 0.84). The more the scores on the scales of Cungi are high, the higher are the degrees of perfectionism (rho: 0.87; 0.81; 0.57). Both judges evaluated the exam nerves in the same way (rho: 0.59). The longer the execution time of the musical score, the more the evaluations by the speech therapist and both judges are weak (rho: -0.69). For the men at T3, we observe six positive correlations and two negative. The more the men have a high degree of nervousness, the higher the judges evaluated exam nerves, the higher level of Cungi scores the more the degree of perfectionism is high (rho: 0.69; 0.65; 0.72; 0.68). The more the jitter increases, the more the perception of the exam nerves by judge n°2 is high (rho: 0.68). The more the HNR increased, the more the degree of exam nerves evaluated by the judges is important (rho: 0.71) and the more the note of the speech pathologist is weak (rho: -0.71). The higher the jitter is, the weaker are the notes of the judges and of the speech pathologist (rho: -0.78; -0.79). 17 students, including only one man, employed strategies of coping to decrease their nerves: 73% a coping cognitive behavioural and 16% a medical strategy. In our study, the nerves affect the men and the women differently. The management of the nerves is an interesting topic to study in order to contribute to the development of coping strategies.

Any lesion in the nervous system, be it infectious, immunopathological, ischemic or traumatic, is followed by an inflammatory process that induces rapid activation of glial cells and additional recruitment of granulocytes, T-cells and monocytes/macrophages from the blood stream. Neuroinflammation is a double-sided sword. It can cause neuronal damage and participate in neuropathic pain, but it also has neuroprotective and neurotrophic effects at some stages. Cytokines are the main molecular actors of this 'network of inflammation'. Among them, granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) is a pro-inflammatory hematopoietic cytokine widely used in haematological disorders to stimulate proliferation and differentiation of neutrophilic, eosinophilic and monocytic lineages. GM-CSF and its receptor are expressed in the brain and the cytokine can cross the blood-brain barrier. It is thus likely to affect various nervous system functions. This review will focus on the role of GM-CSF in nervous system disorders and their experimental models with particular emphasis on its possible beneficial effect on axonal regeneration after PNS and CNS injury.

A topic of major interest in socio-ecology is the comparison of chimpanzees and bonobos’ grouping patterns. Numerous studies have highlighted the impact of social and environmental factors on the different evolution in group cohesion seen in these sister species. We are still lacking, however, key information about bonobo social traits across their habitat range, in order to make accurate inter-species comparisons. In this study we investigated bonobo social cohesiveness at nesting sites depending on fruit availability in the forest-savannah mosaic of western Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), a bonobo habitat which has received little attention from researchers and is characterized by high food resource variation within years. We collected data on two bonobo communities. Nest counts at nesting sites were used as a proxy for night grouping patterns and were analysed with regard to fruit availability. We also modelled bonobo population density at the site in order to investigate yearly variation. We found that one community density varied across the three years of surveys, suggesting that this bonobo community has significant variability in use of its home range. This finding highlights the importance of forest connectivity, a likely prerequisite for the ability of bonobos to adapt their ranging patterns to fruit availability changes. We found no influence of overall fruit availability on bonobo cohesiveness. Only fruit availability at the nesting sites showed a positive influence, indicating that bonobos favour food ‘hot spots’ as sleeping sites. Our findings have confirmed the results obtained from previous studies carried out in the dense tropical forests of DRC. Nevertheless, in order to clarify the impact of environmental variability on bonobo social cohesiveness, we will need to make direct observations of the apes in the forest-savannah mosaic as well as make comparisons across the entirety of the bonobos’ range using systematic methodology.
