A prospective study, involving 21 selected dairy farms in north of Tunisia, was conducted to asses the loss of milk production due to high levels bulk tank somatic cell count and to find some relationship between risk factors and subclinical mastitis. We found that the mean of bulk milk somatic cell count was 626 103 cell/ml. Using a simple statistical model, the average loss of milk due to levels bulk tank somatic cell count was 524 kg per cow per year. Using method of mean comparisons, risk factors associated to high levels bulk tank somatic cell count was: Livestock farming risk factors : inadequacy bedding area; inadequacy cleaning bedding and scrapping area. Milking risk factors : washing teat with a shower no adjustable flow and without wipe with individuel towel milk shift work above five per cow-herd; no stripping squirts of milk before milking; milking healthy and mastitis cows at the same time; no teat dipping.

Introduction Une gestion des populations de cervidés en harmonie avec la forêt et les multiples fonctions qu’elle est aujourd’hui amenée à remplir nécessite notamment de pouvoir apprécier de manière objective et précise la pression exercée par la grande faune sur les zones davantage réservées à la production ligneuse. Certains auteurs préconisent de remplacer ou de compléter les recensements par une observation des dégâts frais affectant la végétation ligneuse. Une telle démarche doit cependant être conduite de manière rigoureuse afin d’évaluer les taux de dégâts réels avec une précision suffisante. L’objectif de cet article est de présenter les bases méthodologiques d’un inventaire des dégâts frais d’écorcement dus aux cervidés et de préciser ses conditions d’application aux massifs forestiers du Sud de la Belgique (Wallonie).

OBJECTIVE: To determine matrix metalloproteinase-3 (MMP-3) serum levels in patients with rheumatic diseases and to study the relation between MMP-3 and C reactive protein (CRP) levels. METHODS: MMP-3 serum levels were determined by enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) in (a) patients with active inflammatory rheumatic diseases: rheumatoid arthritis (RA), psoriatic arthritis, polymyalgia rheumatica, acute crystal arthritis, and ankylosing spondylitis; (b) patients with active inflammatory systemic diseases: cutaneo-articular or renal systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), systemic sclerosis, and vasculitides; (c) patients with non-inflammatory rheumatic diseases: osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia; (d) critically ill patients without rheumatic diseases, representing an acute inflammatory control group; (e) healthy controls. RESULTS: MMP-3 serum levels were significantly increased in patients with active RA, psoriatic arthritis, and polymyalgia rheumatica, whether treated or not by corticosteroids, and in female patients with acute crystal arthritis. MMP-3 serum levels were normal in steroid-free patients with active cutaneo-articular or renal SLE, systemic sclerosis, and vasculitides but were significantly increased in steroid treated patients. MMP-3 levels were normal in fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, and acute inflammatory controls. MMP-3 was significantly correlated with CRP in RA (r=0.5, p=0.0004) but not in any of the other disease groups. CONCLUSIONS: MMP-3 serum levels are increased in inflammatory rheumatic diseases characterised by joint synovitis, such as RA, polymyalgia rheumatica, psoriatic arthritis, and acute crystal arthritis-that is, whether the diseases are acute or chronic, erosive or not. They are normal in SLE, systemic sclerosis, and vasculitides as well as in non-rheumatic inflammatory controls, but are significantly increased by steroids. These data strongly suggest that serum MMP-3 reflects synovial inflammation. [less ▲]

Osteoporosis is the most frequent demineralizing disease. However, when a demineralized vertebra is identified, other diseases must be ruled out in the course of diagnosis. Through three clinical cases, we analyze pitfalls that have delayed the diagnosis of one rare, but unfortunately lethal, aetiology: multiple myeloma. [less ▲]

A case of carcinomatous monoarthritis involving the left knee due to colonic adenocarcinoma is described. Large recurrent synovial effusion, that will be later hematic, lytic lesion of the bones and chondrolysis were noted. Knee positron emitting tomography scan using FDG (FDG-PET) revealed a diffuse increased uptake in soft tissues assumed to be synovium, the hypertrophy of which was identified by ultrasonography. Whole body PET scan showed extensive lymph node, visceral and bone metastases, suggesting that the increase in the synovium could also be of metastatic origin. The final diagnosis of synovial carcinomatosis secondary to the known colonic adenocarcinoma was confirmed by histological analysis of biopsies obtained by arthroscopy. A review of the literature is realised. To our knowledge, this is the first synovial metastasis studied by FDG-PET. [less ▲]

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is the most frequent autoimmune inflammatory arthropathy. Chronic synovial inflammation usually results in cartilage destruction, bone erosion and subsequent joint deformities with impaired physical function. These consequences are more or less delayed by standard disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs). A better knowledge of the basic mechanisms of the disease and new biomolecular tools led to the development of novel biological agents including TNF alpha blockers. TNF alpha is a key inflammatory cytokine that plays a critically important role in the pathogenesis of RA. TNF alpha blockers brought dramatic improvements in efficacy of RA treatment. Here we will review the pathophysiological elements of RA wich explain the therapeutic efficacy of these TNF alpha blockers and we will describe in details the molecules, Remicade (Infliximab) and Enbrel (Etanercept), wich will be very soon used in daily practice in Belgium.

La crise économique et financière que nous traversons depuis deux ans ne diffère en rien de celles que notre monde a connues au cours de sa longue histoire (Malkiel, 2000). De tels ajustements sont nécessaires chaque fois que notre système économique doit s’adapter à des changements technologiques majeurs. La longueur atypique de cette crise et son ampleur - plusieurs milliers de milliards de dollars de capitalisation boursière perdus – soulignent toutefois l’importance exceptionnelle des ajustements qu’engendrent l’adoption et la diffusion de ces technologies nouvelles.

Certaines études neuropsychologiques de patients cérébro-lésés suggèrent que la mémoire de travail contribue à l'apprentissage à long terme de structures phonologiques non-familières. Les données disponibles sur des enfants normaux indiquent que la mémoire phonologique à court terme influence l'acquisition de nouveaux mots de vocabulaire. Par ailleurs, on sait que les personnes trisomiques 21 ont une mémoire phonologique à court terme déficiente ainsi que des connaissances lexicales limitées. Dès lors, étudier le lien entre ces deux variables dans la trisomie 21 s'imposait. Nos résultats indiquent que chez ces sujets, tout comme chez les enfants normaux, le niveau de développement lexical semble étroitement lié à la mémoire phonologique à court terme et plus particulièrement aux capacités de répétition de non-mots.
