Valdecoxib (Bextra tablets of 10 mg and 20 mg) is a new non steroidal antiinflammatory drug (NSAID) that selectively inhibits COX-2 isoform of cyclo-oxygenase. It is indicated for the symptomatic treatment of osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis (10 to 20 mg once a day) and for the treatment of primary dysmenorrhea (40 mg once a day). Valdecoxib is as efficacious as conventional non-COX-2 selective NSAIDs, but offers the advantage of a much better gastrointestinal tolerance. Valdecoxib has a prodrug that can be administered intravenously or intramuscularly (parecoxib, Dynastat) and has been developed for the short-term treatment of postsurgical pain. [less ▲]

The genus Biernatella (Brachiopoda; Athyridida), characterized by the presence of a diplospiralium, is definitely recognized for the first time in the late Frasnian (Lower-Upper Palmatolepis rhenana Zones) of the southern flank of the Dinant Synclinorium and of the Philippeville Anticlinorium (southern Belgium). A new species (B. abunda n. sp.) from the Neuville Formation (Dinant Synclinorium) is described. In the Philippeville Anticlinorium, B. abunda n. sp. occurs in the Neuville Formation and probably at the base of the Les Valisettes Formation but specifically unidentified specimens of Biernatella have also been collected near the top of this last formation.

DBP reduction in the last 6 h of the once-daily dosing interval and 24-h mean DBP control when a dose is missed are significantly superior with telmisartan than with valsartan. Thus, telmisartan due to its longer half -life offers more sustained BP control, especially at the end of the dosing period and provides sustained efficacy in poorly compliant patients. [less ▲]

L'intervention dans les Activités Physiques et Sportives (APS) est associée par certains à la Pédagogie du Sport.

A conceivable strategy in cell and gene therapy is the use of adult stem cells isolated from bone marrow. We defined the optimal conditions for the culture of human and murine mesenchymal stem cells (hMSC and mMSC). We observed that the MSC of both species had a special morphology thanks to which it was possible to isolate them in flow cytometry on the basis of the size and granulosity parameter only. We analyzed the MSC phenotype by flow cytometry and observed that the hMSC were CD31-, CD34-, CD45, CD80- and HLA-DR- while they expressed CD73, CD90, CD105 and HLA-1 antigens. mMSC phenotype was CD34-, CD45-, CD11b-, CD106+ and Sca-1+. We also wanted to determine the frequency in progenitors among the mMSC amplified in vitro. To do so, we first assessed the enrichment in CFU-F (Colony-Forming Units – Fibroblast) progenitors. This method consisted in a secondary culture in liquid medium optimized for the development of colonies of mesenchymal origin. We were able to observe an increase of the CFU-F during the MSC passages. Then, we developed a method in order to assess the progenitors frequency by culturing MSC at limiting dilutions (CFUF-IC, Colony-Forming Units Fibroblast-Initiating cells). Once again, we were able to notice that the frequency in progenitors increased during the successive passages. The ratio between the number of CFU-F and the frequency in progenitors amounted to ± 10. We also performed differentiation assays. We were able to differentiate the mMSC in fat cells, chondrocytes and osteoblasts. Finally, we developed a model of left coronary artery ligature in mice as well as immunohistochemical markers showing the antigens CD31, -actinin and connexin 43. With the intent to inject various types of grafts in this animal model, we also studied the cell cycle of the stem cells by Hoechst staining. Fluorescence analysis of mMSC isolated from EGFP transgenic mice revealed that their fluorescence increased from ± 30% in marrow to more than 90% for the mMSC isolated and amplified via an in vitro culture.

We measured red cell parameters during recombinant human erythropoietin (rHuEPO) therapy associated with appropriate iron supplementation in chronic hemodialysis patients. Increased erythropoietic activity led to a bias in red cell parameter determination. The percentage of hypochromic red blood cells, usually used as the most effective predictor of response to iron supplementation, increased following the appearance of a younger red cell population since the same Hb content in these younger, larger cells gives a lower Hb concentration.

Previous surveys demonstrated the association between the bovine enterotoxaemia syndrome and proliferation of Clostridium perfringens toxintype A. The purpose of this study was to establish rules for vaccination of calves against the a toxin. Bovines were Belgian Blue (BBB) or BBB x Charolais originating from 6 farms with no history of clostridial vaccination. One hundred and thirty-three calves were injected with Tasvax (R) and 70 with Miloxan (R) at one and two months of age, while 94 calves received no vaccine. To study sero-conversion in calves born from vaccinated dams, 67 cows were vaccinated with Tasvax at 7 and 8 months pregnancy. Twenty-nine calves born from these cows were vaccinated at one and two months of age with the same vaccine while 38 calves were not vaccinated. The results of these 67 calves were also compared to the results obtained from the calves born from non-vaccinated cows and vaccinated with Tasvax. Anti-alpha toxin antibodies were measured using an indirect ELISA assay. Anti-alpha toxin antibodies are naturally present in the serums of non vaccinated animals and are transferred to the newborn calf by the colostrum. The two vaccinal injections cause sero-conversions in proportion of the total amount of immunogen received. The best protocol for calf vaccination is a first injection at one month of age, followed by a booster injection four weeks later. Boosters every six months are necessary to maintain a high level of antibody. In case of early problems (< 2 months of age) of enterotoxaemia in a farm, high antibody titres are obtained only following the vaccination of the pregnant cow and colostral transfer. Unfortunately this protocol is not compatible with vaccination of the calf itself. [less ▲]

We use the $1/N_c$ expansion of QCD to analyze the spectrum of positive parity resonances with strangeness $S = 0, -1, -2$ and -3 in the 2--3 GeV mass region, supposed to belong to the $[\textbf{56},4^+]$ multiplet. The mass operator is similar to that of $[\textbf{56},2^+]$, previously studied in the literature. The analysis of the latter is revisited. In the $[\textbf{56},4^+]$ multiplet we find that the spin-spin term brings the dominant contribution and that the spin-orbit term is entirely negligible in the hyperfine interaction, in agreement with constituent quark model results. More data are strongly desirable, especially in the strange sector in order to fully exploit the power of this approach. [less ▲]

The study describes the aquatic habitats and distribution of Triturus alpestris veluchiensis Wolterstorff 1935, T. carnifex macedonicus (Karaman, 1922), T. vulgaris graecus (Wolterstorff, 1905) and Bombina variegata scabra (Küster, 1843) in the district (“nomos”) of Ioannina, Northern Greece. Bombina variegata was found to be the most common species, followed by T. alpestris and T. carnifex while T. vulgaris seemed to be rare. The four taxa differed in habitat use and geographic distribution. Records of T. alpestris were limited to the highest sites in the north and east of the district. This species inhabited alpine lakes, but also smaller habitats such as drinking troughs and ponds. Four populations contained paedomorphic individuals. Triturus vulgaris appeared to be restricted to low altitude sites in the centre of the district where it lived in reservoirs, watering basins and drinking troughs. Triturus carnifex and B. variegata had a wider distribution and occupied a broader spectrum of habitats. Bombina variegata was the only species studied which lived in running waters (small brooks). Neither newts nor yellow-bellied toads were found in large rivers and lakes. In the district of Ioannina both habitat variety and distribution range of newts and Yellow-bellied Toads turned out to be greater than previously known. Alpine lakes containing very large populations of paedomorphic individuals should be protected given the rarity of the phenomenon. [less ▲]

There is growing concern about the health status of the harbour porpoise Phocoena phocoena in the North Sea and adjacent areas. The interaction between toxicological results (Zn, Cd, Cu, Fe, Se, Hg), stable isotope data (delta(13)C and delta(15)N) and the most common pathological findings, namely emaciation and lesions of the respiratory system, were investigated in 132 porpoises collected along the coasts of northern France, Belgium, Germany, Denmark, Iceland and Norway between 1994 and 2001. The body condition of harbour porpoises stranded on the French, Belgian and German coasts was poor compared to that of by-catch individuals from Iceland and Norway, as reflected by blubber thickness and hepatic to total body-mass ratio. High Zn and Hg concentrations were observed in some porpoises collected along the southern North Sea coast compared to by-catch individuals from Iceland, Norway and the Baltic Sea. Increasing Zn levels were observed with deteriorating health condition (emaciation and bronchopneumonia), while Hg increases were not significant. The increases were not related to shrinking liver mass which remained unchanged. These observations indicate a general redistribution of trace metals within the organs (muscles and blubber to liver), as a result of protein and lipid catabolism. Muscle delta(13)C and delta(15)N values remained unchanged with deteriorating body condition. Cd concentrations were associated only with age and low delta(15)N values, indicating that high Cd concentrations in Iceland and Norway porpoises may be partly diet-related, i.e. a result of Cd contaminated prey.

In the federal state Belgium, landscape research evolved from regional geographical monographs to more applied research that focuses upon the specific problems in each of the regions. In the highly urbanized Flanders region in the north, aspects of suburbanization and fragmentation are the most important. Landscape research involves geographers, historians, archaeologists, agronomists, foresters, ecologists and nature conservationists all dealing with specific goals and tasks. The integration is mainly achieved in spatial planning. In the Walloon region large areas are still rural and have a large forest cover, while urbanized zones are rather concentrated. Landscape research focuses here mainly upon the rural involving geographers, agronomists and planners. The natural and scenic aspects of the landscape dominate and the study of the historical development of the landscape is less pronounced. In Brussels Capital region little attention is given to landscape aspects, as social and typical urban problems dominate. Consequently, different landscape typologies are used in Belgium. [less ▲]
