Thioguanine derivatives, azathioprine and 6-mercaptopurine, represent major drugs in the treatment of chronic active inflammatory bowel disease. They are effective in two-thirds of the patients and safe over the long term in patients who can tolerate them (80-90%). Recent progress in understanding the metabolism of these drugs and its implication in clinical practice have brought up new tools and strategies that are proposed to optimize treatment. In particular, the measurement and characterization of key enzymes and metabolites may have clinical impact. Thus, thiopurine methyl transferase genotyping and activity measurement, as well as erythrocytes, 6-thioguanine nucleotides and 6-methyl mercaptopurine levels, may help in some situations of intolerance or inefficacy with these drugs. Indications for starting and stopping treatment with thioguanine derivatives are also discussed. [less ▲]

An optimum design of Low-cost housing (LCH) offers low-income urban inhabitants great opportunities to obtain a shelter at affordable price and acceptable indoor thermal conditions. In the present study, the design and operation of a low cost dwelling were numerically optimized using simulation-based approach in which a dynamic building simulation program (EnergyPlus) was coupled with the optimization engine (GenOpt). Three multi-objective cost functions which include construction cost, indoor thermal comfort and 50-year operating cost were applied for naturally ventilated (NV) and air-conditioned (AC) buildings. Optimization problem which consists of 18 building parameters combined with 6 ventilation strategies was examined by two population-based optimization algorithms (Particle Swarm optimization and Hybrid algorithm) to find optimum combinations among these variables. The results show that the design requirements of NV and AC dwellings are not quite similar, and in a few categories, even contradictory. Optimum design corresponding to each cost function was outlined. Results of this paper also show great potential of optimization in comfort improvement, energy saving, life cycle cost, up to 40%.

The Perfectly Matched Layer (PML) is widely used for unbounded problems. However its performances depend critically on an absorption coefficient. This coefficient is generally tuned by using case-dependent optimization procedures. In this paper we will present some efficient profiles of the coefficient that overcome every tuning. These profiles and others will be compared by using a scattering benchmark solved with the Discontinuous Galerkin method. [less ▲]

In electromagnetic compatibility, scattering problems are defined in an infinite spatial domain, while numerical techniques such as finite element methods require a computational domain that is bounded. The perfectly matched layer (PML) is widely used to simulate the truncation of the computational domain. However, its performance depends critically on an absorption function. This function is generally tuned by using case-dependent optimization procedures. In this paper, we will present some efficient functions that overcome any tuning. They will be compared using a realistic scattering benchmark solved with the Discontinuous Galerkin method. [less ▲]

The goal of the meeting was 1) to identify the research topics within weather forecasting (days) that need to be addressed to allow for an effective & reliable forecast of DLR and 2) to deter-mine the DLR potential based on historical weather data, for planning DLR installations. Developing methods and tools to be able to determine the potential for DLR for specific loca-tions based on historical data and weather models would allow TSO/DSO to make much better decisions on where they could/should implement DLR to solve congestion and curtailment issues in their network. Increasing line electrical capacity on borders can mitigate market pres-sure and lower average generation prices thus increasing welfare. The aim of the WG3-DLR is to come up with a project proposal for these 2 topics that in-cludes: • A description of the obtainable results • An estimation of the R&D tasks required to attain these results • The timing and budget these tasks require Based on these project proposals and depending on their exact content, the proposals are in-tended to be used to either • Convince Transmission/Distribution Network Operators to fund the research for their own immediate needs, • Submit a proposal for EU funding of this research as follow-up to the currently running FP7 Twenties project, • Prepare a potential contribution to Cigré which should be presented at the Cigré B2 meeting due to take place in September in Auckland, NZ.

What is the scope of the choice of law offered to parties in various family relationships (such as divorce, matrimonial contracts or alimony) when the person(s) concerned possess several nationalities ? In several jurisdictions and under rules of European private international law, parties may select which law will apply to their relationship. In most cases a choice may be made for the law of the nationality of the persons concerned. The question arises how such choice should be handled when the person concerned possesses several nationalities. After reviewing several possible readings, I suggest that the classical rules dealing with multiples nationalities should not be applied when the conflict of laws rules allow a party to select the applicable law. The paper (written in French) has been published in Revue générale de droit civil belge/Tijdschrift voor Belgisch burgerlijk recht (ISSN : 0775-2814) vol. 26 (2012/9), pp. 414-430 [less ▲]

Obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is a complex pathology. The understanding of its physiopathology and, notably, of the SAM phenomenon (Systolic Anterior Motion), is crucial for all available treatments. Amongst the most efficient therapies, one can cite the septal myectomy and its most recent technical updates, as well as the alcohol septal ablation. The choice between these two methods depends on the general state of the patient, the thickness of the interventricular septum and the coronary anatomy of the patients. [less ▲]
