Een systematic review of systematisch literatuuronderzoek wordt meestal gebruikt om een samenvatting te maken van de resultaten van meerdere studies over hetzelfde onderwerp. Systematische literatuurstudies zijn dus heel belangrijk, in het bijzonder de voorbije jaren, waarin het aantal in de literatuur gepubliceerde artikelen is geëxplodeerd! Een systematic review wordt beschouwd als een onderzoek met een hoog wetenschappelijk bewijsniveau. Het staat aan de top van de piramide van de evidence-based medicine. Als het onderzoek van goede kwaliteit is, heeft het dus een hoger bewijsniveau dan gerandomiseerde gecontroleerde studies, cohortstudies, case-controlstudies… [less ▲]

INTRODUCTION AND AIMS Vegetative state/Unresponsive wakefulness syndrome (VS/UWS) is defined by the presence of eye-opening and the absence of awareness and voluntary movement (Laureys et al., 2010). VS/UWS patients classically receive hydration and nutrition through an enteral feeding tube. We present the cases of two patients that were diagnosed as VS/UWS but were able to resume oral feeding. It is however unclear if the presence of oral feeding is compatible with the diagnosis of VS/UWS or if this observation should lead to a modification of the diagnosis. METHODS AND RESULTS We retrospectively reviewed the clinical information of 65 VS/UWS patients (aged 45±12; range 16-85 years) evaluated at the CHU hospital of Liege searching for mention of oral feeding. VS/UWS diagnosis was made after repeated behavioral assessments using the standardized Coma Recovery Scale–Revised (CRS-R, (Teasdale & Jennet, 1974)) in association with complementary evaluations using neuroimaging techniques. Of the 65 VS/UWS patients, two could resume oral feeding (3%). One could achieve full oral feeding (mixed texture and liquid) and the other had oral feeding (liquid and semi-liquid) in addition to gastrostomy feeding. Neuroimaging evaluations showed in both patients a massive decrease in the spontaneous brain activity and its functional connectivity (using functional magnetic resonance imaging), bilateral cerebral cortex hypometabolism (fronto- parietal associative areas, posterior parietal areas, cingulate cortices, precuneus) and preserved metabolism in the brainstem and cerebellum (using positron emission tomography). CONCLUSIONS Oral feeding is rare in VS/UWS patients (3% in our cohort). Based on neuroimaging results, this behaviour does not seem to be incompatible with the diagnosis of VS/UWS but the neuromecanistic root, which allows this behavior, still needs to be elucidate. This study also emphasizes the importance of systematic swallowing evaluation in patients with altered state of consciousness regardless of their level of consciousness. Moreover, tactile oro-facial stimulation, manual therapy, taste stimulation and therapeutic feeding can be another “gateway” to interact with these patients and improve their quality of life.

Organic farming is considered to be one of the solutions for the problems of sustainability faced today by the agriculutral sector. This paper describes the growth of the Walloon organic sector during the last years thanks to the support of the regional authorities through financial incentives and a new regional strategic development plan. It also presents some results collected during an on-farm survey concerning organic cereals. It appears that organic farming has significantly developed thaks to public support even if the prices of organic products are exceeding by 30% those of conventional products. Organic farming can play a significant role in the future of Walloon agriculture. However, due to the high conversion rate during these last years, it is not guaranteed that the financial support could be conserved at a such level. [less ▲]

Objective: A large trial published in 2000 concluded that planned vaginal delivery of term breech births is associated with high neonatal risks. Because the obstetric practices in that study differed from those in Countries where planned vaginal delivery is still common, we conducted an observational prospective study to describe neonatal Outcome according to the planned mode of delivery for term breech births in 2 such countries. Study design: Observational prospective study with an intent-to-treat analysis to compare the groups for which cesarean and vaginal deliveries were planned. Associations between the outcome and planned mode of delivery were controlled for confounding by multivariate analysis. The main outcome measure was a variable that combined fetal and neonatal mortality and severe neonatal morbidity. The study Population consisted of 8105 pregnant women delivering singleton fetuses in breech presentation at term in 138 French and 36 Belgian maternity units. Results: Cesarean delivery was planned for 5579 women (68.8%) and vaginal delivery for 2526 (31.2%). Of the women with planned vaginal deliveries, 1796 delivered vaginally (71.0%). The rate of the combined neonatal outcome measure was low in the overall population (1.59%; 95%, Cl [1.33-1.89]) and in the planned vaginal delivery group (1.60%; 95% CI [1.14-2.17]). It did not differ significantly between the planned vaginal and cesarean delivery groups (unadjusted odds ratio 1.10, 95% CI [0.75-1.61]), even after controlling for confounding variables (adjusted odds ratio 1.40, 95% CI [0.89-2.23]). Conclusion: In places where planned vaginal delivery is a common practice and when strict criteria are met before and during labor, planned vaginal delivery of singleton fetuses in breech presentation at term remains a safe option that can be offered to women.

From December 2006 through to the end of 2015, over 150,000 people were intentionally killed in Mexico. Accordingly, from 2006 to the present day, the number of murders and enforced disappearances related to organised crime in Mexico has skyrocketed. The United Nations Office of Drugs and Crime has indicated that from 2007 to 2010, Mexico was the country with the highest rate of increase in intentional homicides. The so-called “war” against organized crime has created a context of increasing insecurity and escalating violence, impunity and corruption across the entire country. Against the backdrop of the security crisis, members of Mexican society have organised national and transnational movements to denounce the government. For instance, some observers have hypothesised that the case of the 43 missing students of Ayotzinapa in September 2014 raised awareness amongst the Mexican population and bolstered their political engagement in both national territory and abroad. Mexicans living in the United States, Spain, France, Belgium, Australia, New Zealand and other places around the world have engaged politically to demonstrate their support for the victims and denounce the incapacity of the current State to govern. This paper looks at the political transnational movements organised by Mexican migrants living specifically in Brussels and Paris to answer the following question: Is political transnationalism a tool for peacebuilding for the Mexican on going security crisis? This paper evaluates how has transnational political activism changed the dynamics of the on-going conflict. [less ▲]

In Parkinson's disease, altered activity in posterior associative cortices has often been associated with dementia. It remains to be determined if this pattern is a reliable marker of a progression toward dementia in patients without demonstratable dementia. In this retrospective analysis, we used positron emission tomography to study resting-state cerebral fluodeoxyglucose uptake in 8 healthy controls and 8 Parkinson's disease patients who did not have evidence of dementia at the time of assessment. For those patients, clinical follow up was available and we know that they did not meet dementia criteria on average 10,37 years after assessment. The results show that patients had reduced fluodeoxyglucose uptake mostly localised in the right hemisphere and including precuneus, superior temporal, middle temporal and inferior parietal cortices. It also includes right insula. These cerebral activity predominating in posterior cortices is present in non-demened patients but is not always predictive of dementia within the 10,34 years.

The paper reverse the famous question of Susan Möller Okin "Is multiculturalism bad for women" and asks the question of the supposed "natural alliance" between secularism and democracy. It takes as an illustration the relation between secularist movement and women's claims in the history of Belgium from the Belgian revolution until now. It presents a first, sketchy description of the alliance, trying to show that three periods can be distinguished : until the end of the schoolwar, the relations between the secularist movement and women's claim are rather weak and the secularists tend to distrust women, they consider as allied of the clerics; during the period of 1960-2000, the alliance is stonger over the claim of "self-disposal of one's body'" ; then, from 2000 until now, there is a strong division between both secularist and feminist movements, and so there are two alliances : radical secularism and mainstream feminist movement are allied against islam while, radical feminist and tolerant secularism are allied against neo-colonialist position.

The medial preoptic area (mPOA) is a key site for the dopaminergic enhancement of male sexual behavior. Dopamine release increases in the rat mPOA with mating, supporting the critical stimulatory role played by preoptic dopamine on male sexual behavior. However, it has been questioned whether dopamine is specifically related to the occurrence of male sexual behavior and not simply involved in general arousal. To address this question, we ask whether dopamine release in the mPOA is linked to the production of male sexual behavior in Japanese quail, a species that exhibits a much shorter temporal pattern of copulation than rats and does not have an intromittent organ, resulting in a very different topography of their sexual response. Extracellular samples from the mPOA of adult sexually experienced male quail were collected every six minutes before, during, and after exposure to a female using in vivo microdialysis and analyzed using HPLC-EC. Extracellular dopamine significantly increased in the presence of a female and returned to baseline after removal of the female. However, subjects who failed to copulate did not display this increased release. These findings indicate that it is not solely the presence of a female that drives dopamine release in males, but how a male responds to her. Further, in subjects that copulated, dopamine release did not change in samples collected during periods of no copulation. Together, these findings support the hypothesis that dopamine action in the mPOA is specifically linked to sexual motivation and not only copulatory behavior or physical arousal. [less ▲]
