The present thesis concerns the study of water vapour fluxes exchanged by a forester cover. The purchased objective has been the determination of a correction factor multiplying the measurements, in order to represent for the best the real water vapour fluxes. Harvested on Vielsalm site (Belgium), these fluxes have been measured by the “eddy covariance” method. The transfer functions used up to now have the major disadvantage to under estimate the correction factor of water vapour fluxes. These ones used up to now were initially conceived for the carbon dioxide fluxes. The first inquiring research has therefore been the establishment of an equation of the function transfer specific to the latent heat. The dependence of the parameters of the transfer function has been prominently displayed towards the relative humidity. Moreover, despite the presence of the filter at its mouthpiece, the minimal clogging up of the tube brings phenomenon of sorption-desorption, even more important if the air sampling is humid. The values of the correction factors resulting from the model built upon the new transfer function possess roughly 10 % more than the correction factors calculated by the initial transfer functions. These correction factors are dependant from the air humidity content and wind speed. On the other hand, it seems that the Kaimal equation, allowing building a co-spectrum of reference for the calculation of the correction factor, is not adapted. Effectively, by replacing Kaimal equation by experimental co-spectrum, we notice that the correction factor decreases deeply. The modelling of the co-spectrum of reference requires an extra study to approach for the best the reality. [less ▲]

Schizophrenia is associated with an increased risk of metabolic disorders such as diabetes, dyslipidaemia and the metabolic syndrome. The prevalence of type 2 diabetes in schizophrenic patients is at least twice that of the general population. Around 40 percent of patients meet criteria for the metabolic syndrome. Recently there is a growing concern on the metabolic side effects of treatment with second generation antipsychotics. According to various studies, including a prospective study performed in Flanders, treatment with clozapine and olanzapine has the highest metabolic risk, followed by quetiapine and risperidone. Amisulpride, ziprasidone and aripiprazole appear to have a low metabolic risk. Appropriate care, taking into account the possible improvement of the metabolic risks factors, is important to reduce morbidity and mortality in schizophrenic patients treated with antipsychotic medications.

Statins are essential drugs for the prevention of coronary artery disease. There is now evidence that they can also prevent ischemic stroke. The protective effect is related to the reduction in total and LDL cholesterol levels and the clinical benefit is especially high in secondary prevention patients with previous stroke and/or transient ischemic accident. The favourable role of statins is less well documented during an acute stroke than during an acute coronary syndrome, and certainly deserves further studies. Besides their specific cholesterol-lowering effect, statins exert various pleiotropic effects, which probably contribute to vascular protection. Furthermore, statins are able to reduce the formation of beta-amyloid peptide, which plays a key-role in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer disease. However, currently available results are heterogeneous and could not firmly support a protective effect of statins in dementia in general, neither in Alzheimer disease more specifically, nor in the reduction of cognitive function in the elderly. Several ongoing trials should confirm or not confirm this new potential indication of statins in a near future. [less ▲]

Glucose is almost the only energy substrate for the brain. Such glucose dependence explains why any large variation of plasma glucose levels could lead to cerebral dysfunction, which may be severe and progress to a coma. Hypoglycaemic coma, the most common one, has a pure metabolic origin (neuroglucopenia) whereas hyperglycaemic coma is more complex and mainly due to osmotic disturbances. Besides acute changes of plasma glucose concentrations, it is generally recognized that more subtle chronic or recurrent glucose abnormalities could also result in brain dysfunction. However, such clinical consequences are more difficult to assess in clinical practice. Nevertheless, learning perturbations in young patients with type 1 diabetes and memory losses, sometimes severe and subject to progress to dementia ("diabetic encephalopathy") in older type 1 or type 2 diabetic patients, have been reported, although with some controversy. The present paper summarizes the current knowledge of both acute and chronic cerebral dysfunctions following perturbations of blood glucose levels in diabetic patients. [less ▲]

ONTARGET ("ONgoing Telmisartan Alone and in combination with Ramipril Global Endpoint Trial") compared the angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor ramipril (10 mg/day), the angiotensin-receptor blocker telmisartan 80 mg/day, and the combination of the two drugs in 25,620 patients with vascular disease or high-risk diabetes. After a median follow up of 56 months, no significant differences were observed between the three groups neither in the primary composite outcome (death from cardiovascular causes, myocardial infarction, stroke, or hospitalization for heart failure), nor in each of its components, total mortality and other secondary outcomes. Telmisartan was equivalent to ramipril (non inferiority criterion), but was better tolerated (less cough and angioedema). The combination of the two drugs in this population (without congestive heart failure and proteinuric nephropathy) did not bring increased benefit (no superiority), but was associated with more adverse events (hypotension, syncope and renal dysfunction). In this population, the choice of the molecule in monotherapy remains optional and the use of a dual blockade is not justified in order to have a better cardiovascular protection. [less ▲]
