Problem-based learning has been introduced at the University of Liège for four years now. The medical library was committed with the organisation of different activities (60 hours/2 years), starting with the control of basic computer litteracy, continuing with an analysis of the structure of the different document types used for scientific communication as well as the discovery of both traditional and electronic medical libraries, to end with guidelines for information retrieval. Such courses requested new approaches and several difficulties had to be taken into consideration including : 1. The transfer of skills rather than kowledge. Some theoretical bases have to be taught before practicing. But the students mostly need to be challenged with different situations requesting different approaches of litterature searching. 2. The course is given before the students feel the need of it. The librarians enconter the students during the first semester of the second year before the students are asked to search the medical litterature to build their own knowledge about clinical matters. 3. The absence of motivation. Second year medical students are focused on major courses in basic and preclinical sciences. 4. Large group teaching (n ≥ 300). All the sections of the medical Faculty are concerned. 5. Inadequate logistic support. Small sized computer rooms do not allow the organization of very many parallel hand-on sessions. 6. Insufficient teaching staffs. Distance learning tools were used to develope online activities complementary to face to face teaching. They are focused on practice. Links to the theory are provided but only when they are indispensable. Many quizzes are also proposed in order to trigger critical mind and auto-evaluation. By January 2005, a first cycle will be completed from the beginning of the course to the final examination. We plan to survey students from every section in order to evaluate the impact of this new teaching strategy. Their observations will be reported as well as our conclusions and suggestions for possible improvements. [less ▲]

Using manual acoustic tracking our study quantified (1) the spatial distribution (2) the movement patterns and (3) the depth preference of adult whitefish in a small artificial lake of eastern Belgium were the species was introduced in 1978 for recreational fishing. From June to October 2004, n=6 C. lavaretus (LF 285-519 mm) were tracked (pingers and depth sensor transmitters) from a small boat over periods ranging from 98 to 108 days in Robertville Lake (elevation: 490 m; area: 63 ha; max. depth: 47 m). Whitefish were consistently mobile but showed quite variable lake use patterns. Two individuals traveled the entire length and breadth of the lake, whereas others remained in movement in the deep zone in the middle part of the lake or near the retaining dam wall. Whitefish occupied positions in the water column ranging from 2.6 to 27.0 m (mean 12.7 m ± 5.6 m) that varied depending on individuals. This first study on individual whitefish behaviour provides a better understanding of the behavioural ecology of the species in small artificial lake. [less ▲]

During the last few years, a great research effort has been devoted to the synthesis of aliphatic polyesters, e.g. poly(ε-caprolactone) and polylactides. Indeed, their remarkable properties of biodegradability and biocompatibility pave the way to many new applications in the biomedical field and as substitutes for non degradable polymers. In order to tailor the polyester properties, the grafting of functional groups along the polymer backbone is highly desirable. For the last few years, CERM has reported on the synthesis and the (co)polymerization of novel ε-caprolactones γ-substituted by various functional groups, e.g., ketal, ketone, olefin, protected alcohol and carboxylic acid. Nevertheless, the grafting of a specific functional group onto the aliphatic polyester backbone requires the synthesis of the parent substituted ε-caprolactone. There is accordingly a need for a strategy that would use a unique substituted ε-caprolactone, followed by derivatization by well-established reactions, so making available a wide range of pendent functional groups, polymeric or not. The derivatization reactions have however to be quantitative under mild conditions to prevent the aliphatic polyester from degrading. Moreover, these reactions must be compatible with the functional groups of interest, e.g., hydroxyl and carboxylic acid, in order to avoid the use of cumbersome protection/deprotection reactions. This communication aims at reporting that a-chloro-e caprolactone (αCLεCL) can be easily copolymerized with εCL into poly(αCLεCL-co-εCL) copolymers, which are precursors for various aliphatic polyesters, by using either Atom Transfer Radical Addition (ATRA) or Click reactions. The number of steps is limited whatever the "Click" or the "ATRA" strategy under consideration. In both cases, mild conditions have been found, such that degradation is minimized. Pendent hydroxyl, carboxylic acid and epoxide groups have been attached without using any protection/deprotection reaction. This strategy has been implemented for the synthesis of amphiphilic poly(εCL-g-ethylene oxide) graft copolymers, that have been used to prepare poly(D,L-lactide) nanoparticles for drug delivery applications.

In the framework of the Belgian global change programme, we have developed a project devoted to the study of the inorganic carbon cycle in the Bay of Biscay where coccolithophore blooms occur frequently. The study focuses on processes associated with the oceanic production and dissolution of calcium carbonate and related CO2 fluxes. Real time remote sensing allowed to localize the coccolithophore bloom that the R.V. Belgica visited in June 2004 during a multidisciplinary scientific cruise. We will present vertical profiles of pH, Talk, along with other parameters (salinity, temperature, chlorophyll a and phaeopigments) and 14C incorporation experiments. Inorganic carbon fluxes will be discussed in the photic zone, in correlation with the biological activity of phytoplankton (biological and carbonate pumps). [less ▲]

L’herpèsvirus alcélaphin 1 (AlHV-1) est un Gammaherpesvirinae du genre Rhadinovirus ayant pour hôte naturel le gnou (Connochaetes taurinus). Apathogène pour son hôte naturel, ce virus induit par ailleurs une pathologie mortelle lorsqu’il est transmis à un grand nombre d’espèces de ruminants sensibles. Cette pathologie, appelée forme africaine du coryza gangreneux (FACG) est associée à une lymphoprolifération et une destruction des tissus de l’hôte infecté. Pour étudier le rôle de l’AlHV-1 dans la pathogenèse de la FACG, il est nécessaire de pouvoir manipuler le génome viral afin de générer des virus recombinants et révertants pour certains gènes. A ce jour, aucune souche d’AlHV-1 recombinante n’a pu être produite. Cette carence résulte du fait que ce virus est strictement associé aux cellules et qu’il possède la caractéristique de s’atténuer spontanément lors de sa multiplication in vitro. De ce fait, la réalisation de virus mutants se révèle impossible par une approche classique de recombinaison homologue en cellules eucaryotes. Récemment, le développement des technologies de chromosome artificiel bactérien (BAC) a permis de cloner le génome entier de plusieurs gammaherpèsvirus de manière stable en bactérie ainsi que la production rapide de nombreuses souches recombinantes. Dans la présente étude, nous avons cloné le génome entier de la souche C500 de l’AlHV-1 sous forme d’un BAC appelé ci-après BAC-AlHV-1. Les résultats obtenus peuvent se résumer comme suit : (i) le BAC-AlHV-1 permet une propagation stable du génome de l’AlHV-1 en bactérie ; (ii) la transfection du BAC-AlHV-1 en cellules eucaryotes permet de régénérer des particules virales infectieuses ; (iii) la cassette BAC insérée initialement dans le génome de l’AlHV-1 étant flanquée de séquences loxP, la multiplication des virions générés à partir du BAC-AlHV-1 en cellules EBL-Cre (embryonic bovine lung ; exprimant la Cre recombinase) permet l’excision de la cassette BAC ; (iv) enfin, la capacité des virions générés à partir du BAC à induire la FACG en modèle lapin a été démontrée. En conclusion, le clone BAC-AlHV-1 généré dans cette étude va enfin permettre l’étude des rôles des différents gènes de l’AlHV-1 dans la genèse de la FACG. [less ▲]

Recently, our phylogenetic study revealed that the Bovine herpesvirus 4 (BoHV 4) Bo17 gene has been acquired from an ancestor of the African buffalo around 1.5 million years ago, implying that cattle subsequently acquired BoHV 4 by cross species transmission (Markine-Goriaynoff et al., 2003, 77:1784-1792). In the present study, we pursued our investigation on the origin and the evolution of BoHV 4. Firstly, with the goal in mind to further precise the origin of the Bo17 gene, the C2GnT M gene sequence was determined for each subspecies of African buffalo and for three types of Asian buffalo. Phylogenetic analyses of these new sequences further supported our conclusion that the Bo17 gene has been acquired from an ancestor of the African buffalo, possibly of the Syncerus caffer caffer subspecies from East-Africa origin. Secondly, to investigate the phylogeographical relationships among BoHV-4 strains isolated from four different continents, phylogenetic analyses were performed based on six different regions distributed throughout the genome. Analyses of these regions revealed a clear correlation between the phylogenetic relationships among BoHV-4 strains and their geographical origin, leading to the concept of BoHV-4 geographical clades. These analyses also demonstrated that since the acquisition of the Bo17 gene, recombination events occurred at different time in the past between ancestors of actual geographical clades. These recombinations provided an opportunity to learn how after acquisition of the Bo17 gene in Africa around 1.5 million years ago, BoHV-4 has spread to the world to form phylogenetically related geographical clades.

Prion pathogenesis following oral exposure is thought to involve gut-associated lymphoid tissue, which includes Peyer’s patches (PP). Before neuroinvasion, early accumulation of infectious prion protein (PrPsc) takes place on follicular dendritic cells (FDC) which are resident cells in germinal centres. The strain, the infection pathway and the lesions in the central nervous system are similar between bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) and variant Creutzfeldt Jakob diseases. But in BSE, the agent tropism differs from lymphoid organs. Only bovine ileal PP are infectious. In order to study the replication and the possible ways of neuroinvasion of PrPsc in bovine PP, we studies the expression of cellular prion protein (PrPc), necessary for PrPsc accumulation, and compared the innervation of germinal centres related to FDC on ileal and jejunal PP of cows and calves. We performed classical immunoperoxydase staining and double immunofluorescence staining analyzed with a confocal microscopy. Differences in the innervation of germinal centres and expression of PrPc were evident. More contacts between FDC and nerve fibres are observed in calves PP. PrPc expression, carried out with different anti-PrPc antibodies, highlighted a heterogeneous labelling between calves and cows PP. Such results permit us to show that the innervation of PP is a dynamic process which could influence the first way of neuroinvasion in prion diseases. Moreover differences in the affinity of some antibody for PrPc allow us to postulate that PrPc glycoforms differ with age of bovines and thus could interfere with PrPsc tropism. [less ▲]

Carapidae (or pearlfish) are eel-like fishes living inside different invertebrates, such as holothurians, sea stars or bivalves. In some Polynesian areas where they live in sympatry, several species (Carapus homei, Carapus mourlani, Carapus boraborensis and Encheliophis gracilis) are able to inhabit the same host species. The heterospecific infestation rate is very rare, suggesting that the four species can compete for their hosts. Some differences in settlement period, breeding period and in pelagic larval duration (PLD) could allow better characterisation of the life history of each species. More than 700 larvae were collected during an entire year on the Rangiroa atoll (French Polynesia). Each species was identified; their settlement pattern was examined and their PLD was deduced from otolith (sagittae) increments. In the four collected species, the settlement pattern differed: C. homei and C. mourlani settle on the reef during the entire year, and show an asynchronous and diffuse breeding cycle. C. boraborensis and E. gracilis have a shorter settlement period which could be compatible with breeding synchronisation. As most reef fishes, Carapidae larvae mainly settle during moonless nights. Moreover, each species presents some plasticity, allowing it to settle on the reef under suitable conditions. [less ▲]

The Ligurian Sea, part of the Cetacean Sanctuary, is known to be a productive area hosting many marine mammal species of the Mediterranean Sea. Investigations on trophic relationship and pollutant monitoring are of primary importance for their conservation. As isotopic composition of an animal is related to that of its prey, ð13C and ð15N were measured by mass spectrometry in muscle of 12 striped dolphins (Stenella coeruleoalba), 1 bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus), 2 fin whales (Balaenoptera physalus), 3 Risso's dolphins (Grampus griseus), 1 Cuvier's beaked whale (Ziphius cavirostris) and 1 juvenile sperm whale (Physeter macrocephalus) stranded along the Ligurian coasts between 1991 and 2004. Hg concentration was also analysed in marine mammal liver by spectrometric absorption. Through ð13C and ð15N measurements, two marine mammal groups appeared: the first group characterised by high ð13C and ð15N values (mean values: -17.5‰ and 11.0‰ respectively) included the sperm whale, the bottlenose dolphin, the Risso’s dolphin and the beaked whale. The second group including striped dolphin and fin whale displayed lower mean ð13C than the first group (-18,48‰), with the fin whale showing the lowest ð15N value (8,8‰ ± 0,7). Our isotopic data are in good agreement with previously described feeding habits: the first group obviously fed at a higher trophic level and in more coastal waters associated with the continental slope while the second fed offshore, with the fin whale occupying the lowest trophic position. Hg concentrations reflected a similar pattern, with the lowest value observed in the fin whale (mean value: 0.1 µg.g-1 dw) and the highest in both the bottlenose dolphin (3769 µg.g-1 dw) and the Risso’s dolphin (1363 µg.g-1 dw). However, beside trophic position, numerous factors might be involved in Hg accumulation in marine mammals such as the age, body condition and specific metabolism. [less ▲]

Recently, Ge et al. (2003) reported a very high accuracy of memory for a highly familiar face. Their Chinese participants had to identify the most veridical appearance of Mao’s face among unaltered and transformed (inter-ocular distance was gradually increased or decreased) versions of his portrait. In the present experiment, the same facial transformations were applied to our participants’ faces to evaluate whether this hyperfidelity for familiar faces is specific to famous individuals whose face is mainly known from a standard portrait or if it could generalise to personally known faces (the own face and a close person’s face). Results showed that performance was not different for the two familiar faces in the recognition task, or between the recognition task and a perceptual discrimination task. The high accuracy of memory previously shown for a very famous face generalises to personally known individuals for whom we have a various visual experience. [less ▲]
