During heart surgery, several humoral cascades (coagulation, complement, kallicrein-kinin, cytokines, fibrinolysis) and several cell systems (platelets, neutrophils, endothelial cells, ...) are activated. Numerous contributing factors have been reported: blood contact with foreign surfaces of the extracorporeal circuits, blood-air interface, lung and myocardial ischemia-reperfusion after unclamping, hypothermia, shear stresses, ... A post-perfusion syndrome may develop which include miscellaneous symptoms: coagulation disturbances and bleeding, neurological alterations, inflammatory syndrome, and, in extreme cases, multisystemic organ failure. Even if the present mortality of cardiac surgery is low, several approaches have been proposed to reduce such activations. They are based on changing in the circuit design, or in the composition of the luminal surfaces of the tubing and oxygenator, on improvement of the operative technique, and on modifications of the perfusion technique. Pharmacological agents are also used (anti-inflammatory drugs, corticoids, serine proteases inhibitor (aprotinin, ...). Nevertheless, the development of more biocompatible surfaces seems a promising goal. [less ▲]

Future Remote Sensing data will include hyperspectral data more and more. This study frames in the preliminary studies to investigate the possibilities of these types of data. In this framework experimental flights were organised by VITO (Flemish Institute for Technological Research) and OSTC (Federal Office for Scientific, Technical and Cultural Affairs) on 13th of September 2002 with a Dornier 228 aircraft carrying the CASI/SWIR sensor, over different test sites in Belgium. The flights were done by NERC and VITO and framed in the STEREO-program of OSTC. This paper deals with the “Ghent test site” over a peri-urban area, and focuses on the 3D-geometry of these data. These hyperspectral data are characterised by relief-displacement and differences in relief. These displacements occur in a direction away from the centre of the image. For remotely sensed images this is the direction away from the flight-line. In the monoscopic analysis of such images, these displacements will disturb the interpretation, the classification and the mapping of the image information. These distortions can be compensated for with a DEM. Very often this DEM has to come from an external data source such as laser scanning or aerial photography. However, when hyperspectral data is taken stereoscopically, it is possible to derive a DEM from these stereoscopic hyperspectral images, and so avoiding the cost to purchase an external DEM. To obtain stereoscopic imagery, two images were taken with an overlap of 80% in the so called “metrical mode” i.e. with a high spatial resolution (0.5m) and a lower spectral resolution. A third image was taken in “spectral mode”, for interpretation issues. A DEM and orthophoto were generated from the hyperspectral data by means of digital photogrammetry. A number of Ground Control Points were collected for absolute orientation, by means of DGPS. The geometric precision of the DEM and orthophoto derived from these data are evaluated using DEM and orthophoto derived from aerial pictures on different scales. [less ▲]

The effectiveness of a specific educational programme involving the use of a real-time glucose-sensor system (Guardian RT) to improve glucose control was investigated in patients with poorly controlled type 2 diabetes despite insulin therapy. Ten patients participated in a randomized crossover study comparing two 3-month periods, during which glucose levels were monitored by either self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) alone or by Guardian RT (restricted to 1 week per month) in addition to SMBG. Only four of the enrolled patients completed both periods, while dropouts were mainly due to technical difficulties in using the device. All six patients who completed the first 3-month period showed a reduction in glycated haemoglobin (HbA(1c)) level whatever the mode of glucose monitoring (study effect). A further reduction in HbA(1c) level was observed in two of the three patients using the Guardian RT during the second period. Less frequent symptomatic hypoglycaemic episodes were noted during the 3-month period with the device in the four patients who completed both study periods. These limited, but promising, results of this pilot study appear to justify the initiation of a larger study to assess the use of a real-time glucose sensor in carefully selected patients with type 2 diabetes.

An infectious ætiology for multiple sclerosis (MS) has been postulated but none of the agents putatively associated with the disease have, as yet, been proven to be causative.1-4 The reported5 isolation of an infectious agent from bone-marrow aspiration of patients with MS prompted us to attempt recovery of an agent from our MS patients. We were unable to isolate an agent from seven MS patients with similar cell lines and procedures. There is no apparent reason for our inability to do so. However, we did find an adventitious agent(s) in two commercial sources of Hela cells. Although not initially apparent, this agent(s) became active upon incubation with either MS-patient or control bone-marrow cells and induced large syncytia when passed to other Hela cells. [less ▲]

In a porcine liver transplant model, a brief period of oxygenated hypothermic machine perfusion (HMP) at the end of simple cold storage (SCS) has been shown to improve the viability of damaged liver grafts. To test the clinical validity of this strategy, we randomized SCS-discarded human liver grafts to either 4 hours of HMP (n = 13) or an additional 4 hours of SCS (n = 14). All livers were then warm reperfused to mimic ischemia-reperfusion injury ex vivo. The settings for HMP were: portal vein: 3 mm Hg, 300 mL/min and hepatic artery: 20 mm Hg, po(2): 300 mm Hg. Perfusion used Kidney Machine Perfusion Solution at 4 degrees C to 8 degrees C. During warm reperfusion, aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) values were higher (P < .015) among the SCS versus HMP methods at all times. The AST slope was lower in HMP versus SCS (P = .01). The LDH slope tended to be lower for HMP versus SCS (P = .07). Morphological scores were not different between HMP and SCS. At the start of warm reperfusion, MAPK was lower in HMP versus SCS (P = .02). Endothelin-1 (EDN1) and ICAM-1 tended to be lower in HMP versus SCS (P = .1 and .07, respectively). No difference was noted in MAPK, EDN1, and ICAM-1 after 60 or 120 minutes of warm reperfusion. In conclusion, HMP down-regulated MAPK and tended to reduce EDN1 and ICAM-1 mRNA in human liver grafts. During warm reperfusion, HMP versus SCS livers showed reduced AST and LDH release but no morphological difference. Further optimization of liver HMP may require different timing/duration of perfusion and/or an higher perfusion temperature. [less ▲]

With the objective of determining whether it would be possible to sustainably produce Jatropha curcas L. seeds on the marginal land situated close to the Senegal River, a 6-hectare pilot plantation was cultivated under drip irrigation between September 2007-November 2011, close to the village of Bokhol (Lat. 16°31’N, Long. 15°23’W). A series of tests were conducted on this plot, in order to identify the best cultivation methods for the area (date, density and method of planting, appropriate type of pruning, fertilisers to be applied, irrigation method, etc.). The average yields obtained at this site, after four years of cultivation (less than 500 kg.ha-1 of dry seed), using the best known production techniques, are significantly lower than anticipated, compared to the available figures for the irrigated cultivation of Jatropha in other parts of the world. The main causes of this failure are the plant’s limited useful vegetation period of six months per year, instead of twelve, and the scale of attacks by a soilborne vascular disease, which destroyed over 60% of the plantation within four years.
