Gestational trophoblastic diseases include placental pathologies comprising fertilization abnormalities (hydatidiform moles) and malignant lesions (choriocarcinoma, placental site trophoblastic tumor and epithelioid trophoblastic tumor). Due to their low incidence and heterogeneity, their diagnosis, management and treatment are not always optimal. Following the example of other European countries, a national registration system with two reference centers has been set up to guide physicians and patients and to propose individualized management. The centers offer their expertise through a systematic centralised pathology review by a panel of experts. HCG values are plotted in regression curves. In case of gestational trophoblastic neoplasia, an imaging work-up is proposed, from which the FIGO score and stage are derived and will guide the choice of treatment. Belgian centers offer a multidisciplinary approach, in partnership with the referent physician. More information for practitioners and patients is available on a web site: www.mole-chorio-bgog.eu, which also harbours a forum of discussion. [less ▲]

Summary : EMPA-REG OUTCOME is an international, prospective, placebo-controlled clinical trial investigating the cardiovascular outcomes of empagliflozin, an inhibitor of sodium-glucose cotransporters type 2 (SGLT2), in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus and known cardiovascular disease. The trial succeeded in reaching the primary objective of non-inferiority and, in addition, showed, after a median follow up of 3.1 years, a superiority of empagliflozin (10 or 25 mg/day) versus placebo as regards the primary composite cardiovascular endpoint (hasard ratio or HR = 0.86; 95% CI 0.74-0.99; P = 0.04), hospitalisations for heart failure (- 35 %), cardiovascular mortality (- 38 %) and all-cause mortality (- 32 %, each p< 0.001). The reduction in mortality appeared early (< 6 months) and concerned all subgroups, without any obvious heterogeneity. This reduction in mortality does not seem to be fully explained by the concomitant slight reductions in HbA1c, body weight, waist circumference, blood pressure and serum uric acid levels in the empagliflozin groups versus the placebo group. Finally, the tolerance and safety profile of empagliflozin was good, with only a moderate increase in benign mycotic genital infections, a well-known adverse event with SGLT2 inhibitors. The remarkable effects of empagliflozin in the EMPA-REG OUTCOME trial, especially on mortality, should modify the management of patients with type 2 diabetes and a high cardiovascular risk in a near future.

High frequency concentration fluctuations are attenuated by the eddy covariance (EC) sensors system. This is due to an inability of the EC system to process eddies of small size and induces an underestimation of the fluxes. The two main reasons are the fluid frictions through the inlet tube of the gas analyzer and the separation of the sensors position between the center of the anemometer and the inlet tube. A correction factor is then needed for CO2 and H2O fluxes. In this study, we describe a new procedure for the high frequency correction (HFC). This new HFC is applied for the CO2 and H2O fluxes measured at Vielsalm and Lonzée since their setup. Finally, we compare the former and updated corrected fluxes of these two sites which are part of the Terrestrial Observatories of Belgium. Both Observatories are included in the European ecosystem network of ICOS. [less ▲]

Si les histoires de la littérature française font généralement peu de cas du roman d’anticipation, rendu invisible aux sélections de la postérité par la variété de ses désignations génériques, l’hybridité de ses formes et les discontinuités de son, ce dernier, en revanche, semble avoir des choses à dire au sujet de la littérature. Encore faut-il préciser de quel théâtre il est question dans ces anticipations, et dans quelle mesure il est possible de lire l’inscription d’un genre à travers la poétique d’un autre. Les thématisations du théâtre sont passibles d’une caractérisation multiforme impliquant des données d’ordre poétique, contextuel et historique. Plus qu’une définition de cette référence, la lecture transversale et diachronique de 1860 à 1930 qui suit entend formuler une interrogation sur les modalités de son traitement. Le théâtre participe-t-il, comme la poésie et le roman, et au même titre qu’eux, de la décadence anticipée des Lettres, signe d’un déclin général dont il prendrait acte à sa mesure ? Un genre ou un registre (drame, comédie, tragédie, boulevard, music-hall, vaudeville, opérette, etc.) est-il mis en évidence, ou ceux-ci sont-ils plutôt indifférenciés, voire présentés comme équivalents ? Ces considérations révèlent-elles une hybridation ou une remise en question des classements micro- et macro-génériques ? [less ▲]

In this paper we focus on how models carry out correlations and how correlations are used as techniques of government. Correlations are fragile exercises which put together two phenomenon, e.g. one nanoparticle and one toxic effect, without linking them with a straight causality. We examine correlations in the situated case of QSAR (quantitative structure-activity relationship) models applied to the toxicity of nanoparticles. Using scientific and regulatory documentation related to QSAR, and the preliminary results of an empirical study of a QSAR project conducted in France, we analyze the initial expectations, i.e. providing knowledge on nanoparticles useful for regulatory purposes, and how this ambition was confronted to the refusal of nanoparticles to feed the QSAR models in a satisfying way. We argue that this led to "thinking on the edge" the wonders and worries of correlation. This calls for a pragmatics of correlation: what does it do? Which are the effects and consequences of a "co-relating" approach? Exploring these questions leads us to examine the type of knowledge produced through models applied to large sets of data, and how it contributes to certain types of regulatory objectivity, particularly in the European legal context. Thus, we discuss the ways in which a pragmatics of correlation offers analytical entry points for the study of the contemporary transformation of the public administration of technical objects.   [less ▲]

La contribution a comme objectif de s'attarder sur certaines idées reçues qui ont pu naître à propos du Règlement. Ces idées, parfois entendues au détour d'une conversation lors d'une réception clôturant un colloque ou aperçues dans une lettre d'information publiée à l'intention d'un public non averti, sont autant de généralisations qui peuvent reposer sur un fond de vérité, tout en laissant subsister des imprécisions, voire des erreurs. L'aperçu qui suit doit dès lors se lire comme une exploration subjective de certaines idées reçues, avec l'espoir d'apporter plus de clarté à propos de cet important instrument. [less ▲]

Although farm tourism is an appealing idea combining agriculture and tourism, the chance to succeed in both activities is low. The Farm tourism experiments are supplied, imagined and experimented in different ways. Consequently definitions, practices and perceptions of agritourism or farm tourism differ as well. Using Gunn’s image typology the paper analyses induced, organic and modified by experience images of argitourism. The study combines data issued from a survey amongst tourists (n = 230), 26 tourism farm holders’ life stories and 31 interviews with experts conducted both in Wallonia and Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. It scrutinizes the promotional discourses, the life experience and the strategy of farm tourism holders, the expectations of tourists who have experimented farm tourism or not, who claim living in the countryside or not. The level of expectations regarding reception, authenticity, convenience, and active participation in farm works differ noticeably and are now and then inconsistent with the supply and the farm activity.
