Les urgences dermatologiques couvrent de nombreuses affections, en particulier celles d’origine infectieuse, auto-immune et environnementale. Elles sont fréquemment responsables de consultations chez le médecin généraliste et auprès d’unités de médecine d’urgence hospitalière. Les praticiens concernés se retrouvent alors en première ligne pour gérer des situations potentiellement dramatiques. Nous discutons les affections les plus fréquentes incluant l’urticaire, l’angioedème, la cellulite infectieuse, les lucites aiguës, le syndrome de Lyell, d’autres réactions médicamenteuses paroxystiques indésirables, les brûlures, l’état d’érythrodermie et l’éruption varicelliforme de Kaposi-Juliusberg.

In order to protect our societies from damaging impacts of climate change (floods, heat waves, droughts…), the most cost-effective adaptation strategies must be selected among a wide range of options (including structural and non-structural protection measures). The Belgian national project “ADAPT” aims to provide guidance for this choice by developing a decision-support system (DSS) for the selection of protection measures against increased risk resulting from climate change, and more specifically from floods. The DSS is based on a combination of cost-benefit analysis (CBA) and multi-criteria analysis (MA), taking into consideration hydraulic, economic, social and ecological indicators. For the purpose of demonstrating the relevance and efficiency of the DSS, the approach is applied for two case studies located in the two main Belgian river basins (Meuse and Scheldt). Within this global framework, the present paper covers the description of the hydrodynamic modeling component and the economic analysis, focusing on their interactions and on their integration within the DSS. The paper also details the case study of the Meuse Basin (river Ourthe), for which the hydraulic simulations are conducted by means of the two-dimensional numerical model WOLF 2D, based on a finite volume scheme and entirely developed at the University of Liege. High resolution Digital Surface Models and geographic database are exploited, enabling to represent streets, buildings and parcels individually. Relevant damage functions are validated and refined based on the analysis of four recent major flood events, for which a relationship may established between simulated local water depths (and possibly velocities or flow duration) and actual damage costs. Consequently, the combined hydrodynamic and economic analysis described in the paper may be judged as a valuable tool for assessing the effectiveness of specific flood protection measures. [less ▲]

La description et la compréhension des conflits extrêmes ou « hyperconflits » constituent de nouvelles préoccupations en Psychologie du Travail et des Organisations. A partir de l’analyse des résultats de huit focus groups composés de professionnels du traitement des conflits, nous dégageons 24 indicateurs des hyperconflits. Plus généralement, il ressort de notre étude que ces situations sont liées à une réduction de la complexité du système organisationnel couplée à une généralisation de la dynamique conflictuelle du point de vue de l’espace-temps, des processus et des conséquences. Les implications en termes d’interventions sont également discutées. [less ▲]

Mitral valve is a complex structure which is submitted to repeated mechanical constraints. In clinical practice, an increasing incidence of mitral insufficiency resulting from myxomatous degeneration is observed. Since myxomatous degeneration is also observed in defined genetic diseases of connective tissues, we propose the hypothesis that idiopathic mitral insufficiency might result from a minor alteration of the interstitial valvular cells and/or their interactions with their support. After a brief review of the role of the extracellular matrix in the heart, some histopathological and biochemical aspects of myxomatous degeneration are presented. Our data and those of the literature will be summarized and a physiopathological hypothesis proposed for myxomatous mitral valve degeneration. [less ▲]

Hsp90 is a protein chaperone regulating the stability and activity of many signalling molecules. The requirement of Hsp90 activity in the NF-κB pathway has been recently reported by several authors using the Hsp90 ATPase inhibitor Geldanamycin (GA), an anti-tumour drug. Hsp90 inhibition blocks the synthesis and activation of the IKK complex, the major kinases complex responsible for IκBα phosphorylation on serine 32 and 36, a key step for its degradation and the nuclear translocation of NF-κB. However, the effect of GA on other IκBα kinases, including tyrosine kinases, is unknown. In the present study, we investigated the effect of GA on NF-κB activation induced by sodium pervanadate (PV), a tyrosine phosphatase inhibitor triggering c-Src-mediated tyrosine phosphorylation of IκBα. We reporte for the first time that GA inhibits PV-induced IκBα tyrosine phosphorylation and degradation. Using an in vitro kinase assay, we demonstrated that GA inhibits the activity of c-Src as an IκBα tyrosine kinase, but not its cellular expression. As a result, GA blocked PV-induced NF-κB DNA binding activity on an exogenous κB element and on the endogenous iκbα promoter, thereby inhibiting IκBα transcription. Finally, we demonstrated that, despite NF-κB inhibition, pre-treatment with GA does not potentiate PV-induced apoptosis. We conclude that c-Src requires Hsp90 for its tyrosine kinase activity, and its inhibition by GA blocks c-Src-dependent signalling pathways, such as NF-κB activation induced by sodium pervanadate. The effect of GA on PV-induced apoptosis is discussed in the light of recent publications in the literature. [less ▲]

Have the 1992 and 2000 CAP reforms had any discernable effect upon agricultural productivity? In this study we derive detailed information on the total factor productivity (TFP) growth of arable farms in Belgium over a 16-year period from 1987 to 2002. Calculations are based on a carefully constructed high-quality detailed farm-level data set containing 1728 observations, involving over 100 farms in most years. Three output variables (cereals, other crops, other outputs) and four input variables (land, labour, capital and other inputs) are constructed, using multilateral Fisher index numbers where crop aggregation is required. The TFP measures are calculated using a Malmquist TFP index relative to a series of data envelopment analysis (DEA) frontiers. Annual average TFP change of 1.0% per year is estimated for this industry. This rate does not compare well with rates of over 2% that are commonly reported in studies involving other developed countries. The pattern of TFP growth over the period indicates that the two CAP reforms (in 1992 and 2000) have had no discernable effect upon TFP trends. An inspection of shadow shares (derived from the DEA frontiers) indicates that substantial distortions remain in this industry, especially with regards to the excess use of labour and constrained use of land, relative to other inputs. Finally, tabulation of results by region and farm size shows fairly uniform TFP change across regions, but poor performance in small farms, where TFP actually levels actually fell over this period.
