This work was undertaken to study the heterogeneity of GH in serum and placental and pituitary extracts and to study GH physiology in pregnant women. Two distinct monoclonal antihuman GH (anti-hGH) antibodies (MAb) coded 5B4 and K24 were selected for their high binding affinity and specificity. The 5B4 MAb recognized the epitope comprising the NH2-terminal end of hGH, and the K24 MAb recognized an internal epitope. Both MAbs were used in RIAs to measure serum GH concentrations in various circumstances, including pregnancy. The two RIAs yielded slightly different serum GH results in normal men and nonpregnant women, but the overall correlation between the data was excellent. Since the RIAs were not affected by human placental lactogen, the evolution of serum GH in pregnant women could be studied. In such women, serum GH levels progressively declined to undetectable levels during the second half of pregnancy, while a pregnancy-associated serum GH-like antigen [tentatively called human placental growth hormone (PGH)] appeared in the circulation at midpregnancy and increased thereafter up to term. PGH contained the NH2-terminal epitope of pituitary GH, but lacked the internal one. Consequently, it reacted selectively with the 5B4 MAb only. After delivery, PGH disappeared from maternal serum within 1 h. Amniotic fluid contained low GH concentrations; cord serum contained high GH levels, but no PGH. Thus, PGH appears to be secreted selectively into the maternal compartment. PGH was purified from term placenta extracts. According to its chromatographic behavior, it appears more basic than pituitary 22K and 20K GHs. Size dimorphism was demonstrated; PGH was composed of two entities of 22K and 25K, respectively. Pure PGH, obtained in small quantities by preparative electrophoresis, was found to bind to hepatic GH receptor with an apparent high potency compared to that of pituitary GH, PGH, thus, should act in vivo as a GH agonist sharing most of its biological properties. These results lead to the conclusion that PGH is likely to replace the pituitary hormone in governing maternal metabolism during the second half of pregnancy. [less ▲]

Knowledge about cervids are rapidly growing. This work aims to present the more recent scientific information on reproductive physiology and endocrinology of the cervids: anatomy of the genital tract, length of breeding season, parameters and endocrinology of the reproductive cycle, endocrinology of pregnancy. It also aims to highlight differences between cervids and domestic ruminants such as embryonic diapause observed in Capreolus capreolus. [less ▲]

La physionomie des abords d’un cours d’eau est très variable, tantôt forestière, tantôt traversant les champs ou totalement anthropisée. Dans quelle proportion retrouve-t-on chaque type de milieu ? Quels sont les arbres qui forment les cordons rivulaires ? Ce sont des résultats maintenant disponibles à l’échelle de la Région wallonne suite à la mise sur pied d’un inventaire des zones riveraines de nos cours d’eau. Ceci a été rendu possible par la collaboration du personnel de deux conventions I- II passées entre la Faculté universitaire des Sciences agronomiques de Gembloux et la Direction des Cours d’Eau non Navigables (MRW, DGRNE).

Hypertension in subjects on long terme dialysis is frequent. Its origins are found in extracellular volume overload, which is complicated by increased peripheral arterial resistance. The latter is affected by many systems, including that of renin-angiotensin, between these factors may explain why the control of hypertension in dialysis patients requires ongoing attention to the many aspects of good dialysis.

The origin of post-zosterian pain appears to be multiple. It implies: neuronal lesions in the central and peripheral nervous system. Young patients are less often affected than older individuals, perhaps because of damages that are caused or not to central afferences. Pain could be due to a central hyperexcitability induced and maintained by nociceptors. Antagonists of the NMDA receptor could thus prove efficient against installation of the chronic pain by interfering with neuronal discharges of the peripheral nociceptors and the induction of a hyperexcitability.

This study aimed to analyze the knowledge and representations of physiotherapists about the physical activity (PA) key concepts. 185 physiotherapists fulfilled a questionnaire related to their knowledge about PA (1) definition, (2) benefits for health, (3) criterion for an effective practice and (4) recommendations. The results shows that the physiotherapists’ knowledge about the key concepts of PA and its implications for PA promotion are surprisingly low. Even if they are aware about the population actual lack of PA practice, their recommendations provided to the public would be inaccurate. Future directions for a more effective action of the physiotherapists as PA promoters are discussed. [less ▲]
