Partant des travaux récents de Georges Didi-Huberman sur l’atlas d’images (A. Warburg) comme outil et support d’une nouvelle heuristique du montage, ce texte confronte l’installation Histoires de fantômes pour grandes personnes (G. Didi-Huberman, A. Gisinger, 2012), composée pour partie d’images en mouvement, à la pensée de la table warburgienne comme lieu d’une perpétuelle reconfiguration et d’une nouvelle lisibilité du monde. Se pourrait-il en effet qu’une image en mouvement, prise d’ordinaire dans un continuum clos, se dote, à travers le montage, des mêmes potentialités critiques – c’est-à-dire d’un même pouvoir inquiétant – que l’image fixe offerte au déambulateur de l’atlas ?

Objective: Burn patients are at risk of hypovitaminosis D and osteopenia or sarcopenia. Vitamin D pleiotropic effects may influence bone and muscle health. The aim of this pilot study was to assess effects of a cholecalciferol (VD3) supplementation and an optimized calcium (Ca) regimen on vitamin D (VD) status, bone and muscle health during sequelar stage of burn injury. Design: Monocentric randomized controlled trial. Methods: Fifteen adults with thermal burns dating from 2 to 5 years were randomized into two groups. For 12 months, they either received a quarterly IM injection of 200,000 IU VD3 and daily oral Ca (Group D) or placebo (Group P). VD status and bone remodeling markers were assessed every 3 months. Knee muscle strength and bone mineral density were, respectively, assessed using isokinetic dynamometry and dual X-ray absorptiometry at initiation (M0) and completion (M12) of the protocol. Results: Of all the patients, 66% presented with VD deficiency and 53% (with 3 men <40 y) were considered osteopenic at inclusion. After one year, calcidiol levels significantly increased in Group D to reach 40 (37–61) ng/ml. No significant change in bone health was observed in both groups while Group D significantly improved quadriceps strength when tested at high velocity. Conclusions: This VD3 supplementation was safe and efficient to correct hypovitaminosis D in burn adults. When combined with optimized Ca intakes, it demonstrated positive effects on muscle health but not on bone health. A high prevalence of hypovitaminosis D and osteopenia in these patients, as well as their wide range of muscle performances, seem to be worrying when considering rehabilitation and quality of life.

Partant de quelques textes dans lesquels S. Kracauer traite du rapport entre montage et réel, cet article tente de préciser et de problématiser l’ambivalence de Kracauer à l’égard de l’outil « montage », notamment dans le champ cinématographique, en ouvrant la réflexion par cette double question : comment définir un « mauvais usage » du montage et, à l’opposé, comment peuvent se mettre en place les conditions d’un « bon usage » du montage selon Kracauer ? Pour y répondre, les auteurs identifient d'abord, dans l’œuvre de Kracauer, les éléments explicites et implicites (montage textuel) qui permettent de saisir au plus près ce que serait, selon le philosophe et sociologue, le principe de réalité. Ensuite, une œuvre photographique, contemporaine des quelques textes évoqués, Menschen des 20. Jahrhunderts d’August Sander, permet de mieux circonscrire les possibles concrétisations de cette pensée en la mettant à l’épreuve d’une réalisation en images et en montage. [less ▲]

In 1994, during the International Conference on Population and Development convened by the United Nations in Cairo, a shocking video was shown, realized by an operator of CNN and depicting the circumcision of a ten-year-old child living in this very same city. Discourses around female circumcision were not new in Egypt and in the international community, but what was considered as a new episode of a recurrent scandal (not the last one indeed) led to enhance the "war against bad government"[1]. A war fought by means of ideological weapons produced by expert knowledges among which the medical and the feminist ones. The assignment of a value to the state of integrity of the female body and to the women freedom of choice, both designed according to Western canons, led to different actions to “save” Egyptian women. In this context, development agencies fosters a widespread representation of the victim, constituted by the woman mutilated body. Such representation is functional to put in place programs which do not guarantee a freedom of choice, but rather require adherence to another female model, one that defines the "modern" woman. My article, based on ethnographic experience, aims at highlighting the complexity of such dynamics and the role played by humanitarianism within them. Female body becomes the arena where local and international economic powers operate, disregarding a real understanding of the practice, its meanings and its eventual change. ________________________________________ [1] Foucault, Michel.

Intra-luminal fluid and excessive abnormal hyper-edema are regularly used for the diagnosis of endometritis in the mare, which is routinely confirmed by the presence of neutrophils on endometrial smears. Studies show a relation between neutrophils and myeloperoxidase (MPO), an enzyme contained in and released by neutrophils during degranulation or after cell lysis. This enzyme has been found in many fluids and tissues and associated with different inflammatory pathologies in the horse. The aims of this study were to assess the presence and concentration of MPO in the equine uterus, and to investigate its relation with neutrophils, and other clinical signs of endometritis. Mares (n=51) were evaluated for presence of intra-luminal fluid and excessive endometrial edema before breeding, and a small volume lavage and cytology samples were obtained. From 69 cycles, supernatant of the uterine flushes was analysed with a specific equine MPO ELISA assay to measure MPO concentration. Cytology samples were used for the diagnosis of endometritis. MPO was present in the uterus of all estrus mares in highly variable concentrations. MPO concentrations were significantly (p<0.05) higher in samples with positive cytologies and in presence of intra-luminal fluid. Occasionally, some samples with negative cytologies showed high MPO concentration, but the opposite was never observed. Cycles presenting hyper-edema weren’t associated to high concentration of MPO, intra-luminal fluid or positive cytology making it a poor diagnostic tool of endometritis. [less ▲]

We investigated the accuracy of auditory inferences of personality of Belgian children with vocal fold nodules (VFN). External judges (N=57) were asked to infer the personality of normophonic (NP) children and children with VFN (N=10) on the basis of vowels and sentences. The auditory inferred profiles were compared to the actual personality of NP and VFN children. Positive and partly accurate inferences of VFN children’s personality were made on the basis of connected speech, while sustained vowels yielded negative and inaccurate inferences of personality traits of children with VFN. Dysphonic voice quality, as defined by the overall severity of vocal abnormality, conveyed inaccurate and low degrees of Extraversion. This effect was counterbalanced in connected speech by faster speaking rate that accurately conveyed higher degrees of Extraversion, a characteristic trait of VFN children’s actual personality.

Imatinib has drastically changed the outcome of patients with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), with the majority of them showing a normal life span. Recently, the development of second and third generation tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) and the possibility of treatment discontinuation made the management of these patients more challenging. In this review, practical management guidelines of CML are presented, adapted to the Belgian situation in 2014. In first line chronic phase patients, imatinib, nilotinib and dasatinib can be prescribed. While second generation TKIs give faster and deeper responses, their impact on long-term survival remain to be determined. The choice of the TKI depends on CML risk score, priority for a deep response to allow a treatment-free remission protocol, age, presence of comorbid conditions, side effect profile, drug interactions, compliance concerns and price. Monitoring the response has to be made according the 2013 ELN criteria, and is based on the bone-marrow cytogenetic response during the first months and on the blood molecular response. Molecular follow-up is sufficient in patients with a complete cytogenetic response. For patients who fail frontline therapy, nilotinib, dasatinib, bosutinib and ponatinib are an option depending of the type of intolerance or resistance. T315I patients are only sensitive to ponatinib, which has to be carefully handled due to cardiovascular toxicity. Advanced phase diseases are more difficult to handle, with treatments including allogeneic stem cell transplantation, which is also an option for patients failing at least two TKIs. The possibility of treatment-free remission and pregnancy are also discussed. [less ▲]

The Childhood Executive Functioning Inventory (CHEXI) is a new rating instrument for executive functioning developed by Thorell and Nyberg (2008). Through exploratory factor analyses, this inventory has been shown to tap into working memory and inhibition-related behaviors in young children. In this study, we present the psychometric characteristics of the French adaptation of the CHEXI in 8- to 11-year-old children. In addition, we explore the cross-cultural validity of the CHEXI in discriminating between children with ADHD and normally developing children in two culturally different samples (Belgian and Swedish). Confirmatory factor analyses replicated the two-factor solution, referred to as inhibition and working memory, that was identified in the original study with Swedish children. Supplementary analyses indicated that both subscales have good psychometric properties. From a clinical point of view, the CHEXI was found to discriminate, with high sensitivity and specificity, between children with ADHD and normally developing controls in both cultural samples. Cross-cultural clinical implications are discussed. [less ▲]

This study aimed at comparing data obtained from Azawak zebu colostrum with literature data. The comparison was performed by a meta-analytical approach. Colostrum samples were hand-collected after 5 h from 7 Azawak cows at calving between August 27, to September 10, 2009 in the Sahel. For data from literature, twenty one (21) references were identified in the following analytical databases: PubMed, Science Direct, Google scholar, Collection from University of Liege. The references were selected according to the following two criteria: i) only studies reported on bovine colostrum were used irrespective of breeds, and ii) among the selected studies, those not providing complete information to allow meta-analytical calculation were excluded. Samples were analyzed for immunoglobulins (IgG, IgM, IgA), lactoferrin, and chemical composition (dry mater, protein, fat, lactose, ash, Ca, P, NA, K, Mg). The mean levels of IgG, IgM, dry matter, protein and fat for Azawak cows were lower (P ˂ 0.001) than those obtained in other breeds; however colostrum from the Azawak was higher in IgA but the difference was not significant. For lactose and ash, mean values for Azawak cows were higher (P ˂ 0.001) than those from the literature. Contents of Ca, P, Na and Mg in Azawak bovine colostrum were significantly higher (P ˂ 0.001) than the mean levels in form the literature data. In conclusion, the colostrum from Azawak cows appears to be lower in most immunoglobulins, in fat and in protein than the values reported in the literature, but higher in lactose and minerals. This could be an adaptation to sahelian contraints. [less ▲]
