Prerequisites for the implementation of a new heroin-assisted centre Background: TADAM, a randomised controlled trial of heroin-assisted treatment, will begin in Liège, Belgium, in 2010. Heroin-assisted treatment of treatment resistant heroin addicts has been successfully tested in six countries: Switzerland, The Netherlands, Spain, Germany, Canada and United-Kingdom. Each country used a randomised controlled trial to assess this new treatment. It has now a strong evidence-based foundation. However in the peer-reviewed articles, there is little information on the concrete conditions to fulfil before implementing this treatment. With the experience of the other countries and ours, we have listed those conditions. Methodology: We collected information concerning the randomised controlled trial. This included articles published in international peer-review journals, reports, visits to heroin-assisted treatment centres and information given by researchers who participated in those experiments. We will illustrate our presentation with the example of Liège. Results: Before all, a political agreement at the national level is mandatory. It is never guaranteed even if it was already given in the past. Methadone treatments must be available and the collaboration with the addiction network will be an advantage for the project. There must be a sufficiently high number of heroin addicted in the concerned area and they must be correctly informed about the heroin-assisted treatment. But even if it is the case, the inclusion of the foreseen number of patients can be more difficult than expected because it is problematic to assess the exact number of patients fulfilling the inclusion criteria and because not all the eligible participants will accept to enter this treatment. Conclusion: For reasons other than medical or scientific ones, implementing a new heroin-assisted centre is still a challenge. [less ▲]

Balance disorders can have a major functional impact among the elderly. The main risk is falling. Three elements are implicated in the loss of balance: vision, proprioception and the vestibular system. This article will discuss mainly vestibular damage and its implications. The assessment of balance disorders, particularly in geriatric patients, is based on validated scales composed of several items. These provide scores and are based on the results of chronometric measurements. They can be useful for the application of Vestibular Rehabilitation (VR ), a technique improving the adaptation and autonomy of these patients. Vestibular rehabilitation is therefore part of an overall support, the goal of therapy being to improve daily life and to reduce the risk of falls. [less ▲]

This study of 40 elderly subjects (30 women and 10 men) between the ages of 70 to 90, attempts to qualify and quantify their voices and to compare the results with a young population and to establish any differences between the two sexes. The measurements concerned the Vital Capacity (VC), the Maximum Phonation Time (MPT) and the Phonation Quotient (PQ). The equivalent values for a young population were compiled from the literature. Spectral voice analysis was also included in the study. The mean speaking fundamental frequency (Fo) of the voice changes with age; it increases in men and decreases in women (158 Hz in elderly men vs a normal value of 120 Hz; 205 Hz in elderly women vs a normal value of 225 Hz). Ageing influences the vital capacity to the advantage of men (median VC = 2.61 vs 1.61 in elderly men and women, respectively). For sustaining a vowel a, the Maximum Phonation Time (MPT) is significantly better in elderly men (median MPT = 16 sec in elderly men and 12 sec for women). Phonation Quotient does not differ significantly between sexes (median PQ = 153 ml/sec in elderly men and 152 ml/sec in elderly women). Although, the physical capacity of elderly women decreases, their vocal output remains very good when compared to young women. In elderly men, however, there is a phonation quotient decrease of 25 per cent compared to young men. [less ▲]

Les changements causés par le vieillissement se déroulent à un rythme différent pour chaque personne et dépendent de facteurs comme le style de vie, les activités et l'environnement ainsi que des facteurs comme le bagage génétique et l'état de santé.La presbyphonie est le terme employé pour définir le vieillissement de la voix. Elle s'observe le plus souvent après 60 ans et touche les deux sexes. Ce trouble vocal est la conséquence d'altérations morphologiques et fonctionnelles des systèmes pneumo-phono-articulatoires qui résultent d'une modification hormonale (thyroïdienne et sexuelles), d'une altération de l'état musculaire, vasculaire, nerveux ou respiratoire, ou encore d'un manque d'exercice vocal.

This study examined 3- and 4-year-old preschoolers' ability to learn proper names containing familiar descriptions. Children saw a novel creature with a familiar property (it was red) and heard either an adjective ("This is a red one") or a descriptive proper name ("This is Mr. Red"). The creature was then transformed, losing the property (e.g., it became green). Children had to extend the word to either the transformed original creature or a new creature bearing the original property (another red creature). Children, especially 4-year-olds, extended the adjective to the new creature but were significantly more likely to extend the proper name to the original creature. Lexical form class cues provided potent information about word meaning, directing preschoolers to reinterpret familiar descriptive terms (adjectives) as homophonic terms designating unique individuals (proper names).
