Le présent Courrier hebdomadaire a pour objet l’analyse de l’intégration des questions de défense nationale et européenne au sein des préoccupations des partis politiques belges. Cette analyse comprend deux volets. Le premier examine les activités parlementaires en rapport avec les affaires militaires belges et européennes. Nous procéderons, plus précisément, à l’analyse des travaux conduits par la commission de la Défense nationale de la Chambre au cours de la dernière législature. Le second repose sur un examen des propositions relatives à la défense belge et européenne (politique européenne de sécurité et de défense) au sein des programmes politiques des partis représentés au Parlement fédéral dans la perspective des élections législatives du 18 mai 2003. L’objet de cette étude est de déceler les lieux de convergences et de divergences entre les formations politiques du pays (mise à l’agenda politique des partis, définition des priorités, visions prospectives, etc.). Il s’est agi, plus exactement, de relever les principales thématiques abordées par les partis en matière de défense nationale et européenne. En effet, à l’instar d’un grand nombre de compétences régaliennes, le secteur de la défense constitue un lieu d’intersection de multiples problématiques de type économique, social, budgétaire, environnemental et politique au sens propre du terme. En outre, le concept même de défense peut être décliné en une variété de sous-thèmes qui lui sont constitutifs (structure de forces, choix des systèmes d’armes et des matériels, définition des tâches et missions, statut du personnel, intégration au sein des enceintes multilatérales, spécialisation,…). Il est, enfin, utile de préciser que cette étude ne prend en compte ni les divers documents internes (à diffusion publique ou restreinte), ni les notes de travail produites par les partis, ni les études spécialisées sur la place de la Belgique en matière de sécurité européenne. Ce choix a été opéré à dessein. Il s’agit, en effet, de s’intéresser aux seules dispositions programmatiques spécifiquement adressées à l’ensemble des concitoyens dans le cadre de travaux parlementaires et d’un choix électoral donné. Aussi, cette étude ne peut être assimilée à un bilan exhaustif des positions et conceptions des partis en la matière ; il est plutôt un indicateur des messages que les formations politiques entendent transmettre aux citoyens [less ▲]

In the present paper, a new method for partitioning a circle in cells is presented. Cells have equal areas and shapes, so the method is termed the Isocell method. Its most interesting property is that cell centres are uniformly distributed inside the circle. Among possible applications of the Isocell method, the calculation of view factors by ray-tracing (image rendering, radiative heat transfer modelling) is presented. [less ▲]

Nine right apical lobes of healthy Friesian calves and 10 right apical lobes of double-muscled calves of Belgian White and Blue (BWB) breed were suspended in an airtight box, inflated at a constant transpulmonary pressure (Ptp), and subjected to quasi-sinusoidal pressure changes (amplitude: 0.5 kPa) at a frequency of 30 cycles/min. Lobar resistance (RL) was partitioned at six different lung volumes into three components: central airway resistance (Rc), small airway resistance (Rp), and tissue resistance (Rt). Pressure in small airways (2-3 mm ID) was measured with a retrograde catheter. Alveolar pressure was sampled in capsules glued onto the punctured pleural surface. RL was minimal at values of Ptp comprised between 0.5 and 0.7 kPa and increased at higher and lower values of Ptp. At a Ptp of 0.5 kPa, Rc, Rp, and Rt represented 30, 15, and 55% of RL, respectively, in Friesian calves and 25, 25, and 50% in BWB calves. Rp increased markedly at low lung volumes. Rt was responsible for the increase of RL at high Ptp. Rc tended to decrease at high Ptp. The significantly higher values of Rp in BWB calves (P less than 0.05) might explain the sensitivity of this breed to severe bronchopneumonia [less ▲]

Eight right cranial lobes of healthy Friesian calves were suspended in an airtight box. They were inflated at a constant transpulmonary pressure (Ptp) and ventilated from the outside by modifying pressures in the box with a quasi-sinusoidal pump at a frequency of 30 counts per minute. Peak-to-peak changes were 0.5 kPa. Lobar resistance (Rl) was partitioned into three components: central airway resistance (Rc), small airway resistance (Rp) and tissue resistance (Rt). Partitioning of R1 was realised at six different lung volumes. Minimal R1 was observed for a value of Ptp between 0.5 and 0.7 kPa. At a Ptp of 0.5 kPa, Rc, Rp, Rt represent 30, 15 and 55 per cent of R1, respectively. Lobar resistance increases at high and low lung volumes. Small airway resistance is small and independent of the level of lung inflation, except at low lung volumes where a marked increase is observed. Tissue resistance is relatively high and responsible for the increase of R1 at high lung volumes. Central airway resistance does not change significantly with lung volumes [less ▲]

Respiratory resistance in calves was partitioned in two components: upper airway resistance and pulmonary resistance. The former one was divided into naso-pharyngeal and laryngeal resistance. A comparison between seven healthy unsedated double-muscled calves of the Belgian White and Blue breed (BWB) and five healthy unsedated Friesian (F) calves was performed. Respiratory resistance was significantly greater in the BWB calves, due to the significantly higher values of the naso-pharyngeal and the laryngeal resistances. This finding might be related to the higher prevalence of laryngitis in this breed [less ▲]

Introduction: Many situations justify a close collaboration between GP, OP and SIP. Health problems impact work activity and vice versa. An altered health situation confronts workers with the risk of exclusion from the labour market. An interprofessional collaboration is thus needed to promote a more active policy of rehabilitation of workers on long term sickness absence. The Belgian Ministry of Employment initiated this study to identify communication channels and tools that could support collaboration among those health professionals. Methods: To this purpose, 8 nominal groups were organised to think about proposals to improve interdisciplinary collaboration. In sum 42 GP’s, 16 OP’s and 16 SIP’s participated in the discussions. For the elaboration of the final proposals, the research team relied on a multidisciplinary expert group. Results: An asymmetric relation was observed; each group expressed the need to receive information from the two others, but proposals to transfer information were rare. Exchanges in the groups showed that reciprocal ignorance is important and communication modalities are poor. A profound revision of the information transmission procedures seemed necessary. Several practical proposals were made to improve communication in case of sickness absence over three months, to allow information transfer and to promote mutual respect between the three disciplines. Other proposals considered professional training, and professional competencies which need to be better defined. Discussion: Misconceptions of the role of the different professional disciplines form a barrier to an effective collaboration. Technical and regulatory measures alone will not bring about a real promotion of interdisciplinary collaboration. The proposals arising from the study will contribute to increase reciprocal knowledge between professionals from the three disciplines and thus form the basis of a more effective collaboration. In turn, the experience of collaboration could have a beneficial effect on the reciprocal representations of each partner role. [less ▲]

INTRODUCTION Some conditions require induction of parturition: colic, severe hyperlipemia, prepubian tendon rupture, premature placental separation, hydroallantoïd, and foetal distress2,4,5. Prolonged gestation is not a good indication1,4. Protocols using oxytocin, prostaglandins or corticosteroids can induce parturition2,3,4,5. Most induction protocols use low doses of oxytocin2,3,5. OBJECTIVE On the basis of a clinical case, this poster will discuss the indications, the methods and the risks of parturition induction in the mare. CLINICAL CASE A pony mare at day 310 of pregnancy is presented for colic with poor prognosis. The foetal parameters are good and the cervix begins to open. There is no milk in the udder. The decision to save the foal is taken and parturition is induced by one oxytocin bolus (20 I.U./IV) followed by an oxytocin infusion (100 I.U. in 1000ml saline). After assisted foaling, the foal rises and sucks commercial colostrum within 30 minutes. Soon, the foal becomes depressed and, despite treatment with commercial plasma, tube feeding and antibiotics, dies at day 2. DISCUSSION This case required immediate induction of foaling, which was achieved by administration of high doses of oxytocin. Commonly, high doses of oxytocin induce dystocia because the foal has no time to move to correct (dorso-sacral) presentation1,2,5. The risks for the foal include absence of colostrum and foetal immaturity1,2,3,4,5. Even after day 300, the prognosis is poor1,2,3,4. A good prognostic indicator of the foal’s maturity (lung, and other systems) is the electrolytes concentration in the mother’s milk2,4. These protocols should be used when foetal maturity is ascertained or as last resort1,2,3,4. CONCLUSIONS Foaling induction is risky for dystocia and foal outcome. It should be reserved to cases where foal’s maturity can be assessed. [less ▲]

Three parvalbumin isotypes were isolated from the white muscle of haemoglobin-myoglobin-free antarctic fish Channichthys rhinoceratus. Antibodies against the parvalbumin mixture were raised in rabbits and used for discovery, quantitation and isolation by affinity chromatography of parvalbumin in the cardiac muscle of three antarctic fish species: Channichthys rhinoceratus, Champsocephalus gunnari and Notothenia neglecta. The cardiac muscle of these species contains parvalbumin in concentration close to 1 mumol per kg wet weight. [less ▲]

Five parvalbumins have been isolated from the white muscles of the lungfish. They can be divided into two sub families showing typical amino acid compositions, C-terminal amino acid residues, peptide maps and immuno-reactivity. The red muscles including the cardiac muscle also contain parvalbumins in amounts roughly inversely related to the concentration of myoglobin in the muscle. Parvalbumins have also been detected in the brain and kidney. [less ▲]

Vasotocin (VT; the antidiuretic hormone of birds) is synthesized by diencephalic magnocellular neurons projecting to the neurohypophysis. A sexually dimorphic system of VT-immunoreactive (ir) parvocellular elements has been described within the male medial preoptic nucleus (POM) and the nucleus of the stria terminalis, pars medialis (BSTm). VT-ir fibers are present in many diencephalic and extradiencephalic locations, and quantitative morphometric analyses demonstrated their sexually dimorphic distribution in regions involved in the control of different aspects of reproduction. Moreover, systemic or intracerebroventricular injections of VT markedly inhibit the expression of some aspects of male sexual behavior. In adult animals, circulating levels of testosterone (T) have a profound influence on the VT immunoreactivity within BSTm, POM, and lateral septum. Castration markedly decreases the immunoreaction, whereas T-replacement therapy restores a situation similar to the intact birds. We observed no changes in gonadectomized females treated with T. These changes parallel similar changes in male copulatory behavior (not present in castrated male quail, fully expressed in castrated, T-treated males). The restoration by T of the VT immunoreactivity in castrated male quail could be fully mimicked by a treatment with estradiol (E-2), suggesting that the aromatization of T into E-2 may play a key limiting role in both the activation of male sexual behavior and the induction of VT synthesis. This dimorphism has an organizational nature: administration of E-2 to quail embryos (a treatment that abolishes male sexual behavior) results in a dramatic decrease of the VT immuno reactivity in sexually dimorphic regions. Conversely, the inhibition of E-2 synthesis during embryonic life (a treatment that stimulates the expression of male copulatory behavior in treated females exposed in adulthood to T) results in a malelike distribution of VT immunoreactivity. The VT parvocellular system of the Japanese quail can therefore be considered an accurate marker of the sexual differentiation of brain circuits mediating copulatory behavior and could be a very sensitive indicator of the activity of estrogenlike substances on neural circuits.
