The prognosis for patients multiple myeloma (MM) has improved substantially over the past decade with the development of new, more effective chemotherapeutic agents and regimens that possess a high level of anti-tumor activity. In spite of this important progress, however, nearly all MM patients ultimately relapse, even those who experience a complete response to initial therapy. Management of relapsed MM thus represents a vital aspect of the overall care for patients with MM and a critical area of ongoing scientific and clinical research. This comprehensive manuscript from the International Myeloma Working Group provides detailed recommendations on management of relapsed disease, with sections dedicated to diagnostic evaluation, determinants of therapy, and general approach to patients with specific disease characteristics. In addition, the manuscript provides a summary of evidence from clinical trials that have significantly impacted the field, including those evaluating conventional dose therapies, as well as both autologous and allogeneic stem cell transplantation. Specific recommendations are offered for management of first and second relapse, relapsed and refractory disease, and both autologous and allogeneic transplant. Finally, perspective is provided regarding new agents and promising directions in management of relapsed MM. [less ▲]

L’objectif de notre recherche n’est pas de nous concentrer sur la création ni sur le parcours d’une initiative citoyenne européenne mais bien d’étudier les conséquences politiques qui ont suivi ces initiatives. Pour ce faire, et compte tenu de la proximité temporelle du lancement du procédé, nous proposons de concentrer notre analyse sur les différentes suites qui furent données à la première des trois propositions ayant abouti, « Right2water ». Hormis la réponse obligatoire de la Commission, nous analysons l’impact et la mobilisation des enjeux de l’initiative par les institutions, les partis politiques, les députés européens et nationaux. L’initiative citoyenne européenne s’est-elle traduite en règlements ? En propositions ? A-t-elle été récupérée dans des programmes et discours politiques ou, à l’inverse, a-t-elle été écartée de l’agenda politique européen ? En d’autres mots, les propositions citoyennes ont-elles un poids sur la scène politique européenne ? L’initiative ouvre-t-elle la porte des institutions aux revendications des citoyens ? [less ▲]

This study formulates an itinerary choice model that is consistent with those used by industry and corrects for price endogeneity using a control function that uses several types of instrumental variables. We estimate our models using database of more than 3 million tickets provided by the Airlines Reporting Corporation. Results based on Continental U.S. markets for May 2013 departures show that models that fail to account for price endogeneity overestimate customers' value of time and result in biased price estimates and incorrect pricing recommendations. Extensions to advanced discrete choice models show the importance of accounting for inter-alternative substitution for products that share similar departure times. [less ▲]

School is identified as the main pillar of the fight against sedentariness in youth. Several models of active schools have been described in the literature and, under the umbrella of the school policy enhancing physical activity (PA), five main dimensions can be identified (Physical education, Active transportation, Life environment, Sport at school, PA in the classroom). This underlines that, if the PE teacher is considered as the corner stone of the PA promotion at school, (s)he is not alone to create the conditions aiming to permit to the children to reach the PA level recommended daily. Integrating more PA in the classroom seems to be a promising approach for children lifestyle as well as for their overall learning. Worldwide, initiatives are proposed in order to convince classroom teachers to integrate more often PA in their educational activities. Nowadays, it seems determining to share experiences in order to identify good practices and solutions to the current problems that teachers can encountered on the field. The goal of this presentation is to illustrate two concrete examples of projects implemented in primary schools in Wallonia, Belgium. We will describe the teaching context as well as the main findings provided by a systematic data analysis conducted during these experiments. The first study focused on three classes proposing Brain Breaks (BB) videos during a 10 weeks period. The attitude of the pupils and the teaching staff opinions were analyzed. In the second study, varied PA breaks (BB video, games, and video developed by the pupils) were proposed during periods of two to four weeks. Data from participant observation and questionnaires were used. In both studies, findings support the planning of PA during classroom. Even if more controlled research designs would be necessary in order to determine the evidence of the results, we can state that practitioners and children involved in the projects showed really positive reactions about these opportunities to be more active.

The development of comics studies in the United States has been linked to the institutionalization of the ‘graphic novel’ as a ‘literary’ subset of comics deemed worthy of academic attention. Several voices in North-America are now challenging the need for canon formation by arguing for other approaches to the historiography of comics beyond the graphic novel. Histories and definitions, however, as Thierry Smolderen argues, are not only written by scholars, but generated by a multiplicity of social groups actively participating in the ongoing negotiation of what the medium ‘is’. Drawing on these recent trends, I will engage in a disciplinary reflection on the historiography of comics by focusing on authors' histories of the medium. Cartoonists themselves indeed act as comics historians: suffice to think of Jules Feiffer's pioneering The Great Comic Book Heroes (1965). ‘Graphic novelists’ as Chris Ware, Art Spiegelman, Seth or Daniel Clowes have been deeply engaged in recovering the past of comics in their works as well as in essays, reprints, or exhibitions. These histories are fragmentary, emotionally charged and at times anachronistic, but they complicate teleological accounts of the graphic novel, disrupting the academic canon. Confronting this perspective with recent insights in literary historiography, I will attempt to examine some of the specific epistemological issues raised by cartoonists' histories of comics in their divergence or convergence with other historiographic trends such as fanzines and academic research.

Estetrol (E4), estradiol (E2) and progesterone (P4) have important antioxidative and neuroprotective effects in neuronal system. We aimed to study the consequence of combined steroid therapy in neonatal hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE). In vitro the effect of E4 combined with other steroids on oxidative stress and the cell viability in primary hippocampal cultures was evaluated by lactate dehydrogenase and cell survival assays. In vivo neuroprotective and therapeutic efficacy of E4 combined with other steroids was studied in HIE model of immature rats. The rat pups rectal temperature, body and brain weights were evaluated. The hippocampus and the cortex were investigated by histo/immunohistochemistry: intact cell number counting, expressions of markers for early gray matter lose, neuro- and angiogenesis were studied. Glial fibrillary acidic protein was evaluated by ELISA in blood samples. In vitro E4 and combinations of high doses of E4 with P4 and/or E2 significantly diminished the LDH activity and upregulated the cell survival. In vivo pretreatment or treatment by different combinations of E4 with other steroids had unalike effects on body and brain weight, neuro- and angiogenesis, and GFAP expression in blood. The combined use of E4 with other steroids has no benefit over the single use of E4. [less ▲]

In turbomachinery, low pressure compressors are composed of a succession of bladed disks. To reduce the mass and increase the performance of the aircraft engines, one-piece multi-stage units of bladed disks have been recently developed. But these one-piece technologies are challenging for the mechanical design due to exacerbated effects of mistuning (i.e., mode localization and forced response amplification). In the thesis, an experimental method for the identification of mistuning in multi-stage bladed structures is proposed and validated. Numerical modeling methods are proposed to reduce computational times for the statistical predictions of the forced response amplification. A characterization of the interstage coupling is performed and a criterion is proposed to predict in advance if a multi-stage analysis is necessary. [less ▲]

A 10 m thick loess (aeolian silt) layer located beside the Romont quarry (Eben-Emael, Middle Belgium) has been investigated in order to characterize the mechanical behaviour of the silty material. Cone penetration tests (CPT) have been performed with different cones (M1-type, M2-type and electric) in order to evaluate the influence of the cone on the mechanical behaviour interpretation. Concurrently, laboratory tests have been performed on undisturbed samples from core drillings. Laboratory tests consist of a physical characterization (grain size distribution, Atterberg limits) and a mechanical characterization (oedometer tests). This comprehensive investigation study focuses on the comparison of the loess characterization between in situ and laboratory approaches. CPT-based soil behaviour type charts are analyzed and compared with the Unified Soil Classification System. Many relations also exist in the literature between parameters obtained from CPT results and from laboratory tests. The study explores the existing relations between the cone resistance and the oedometer constrained modulus in order to verify the related coefficients proposed in the literature for silty material.

This paper is a part of an ongoing research in the field of sustainable urban densification through providing innovative solutions for zero energy light weight construction. The focus aim of this research is to identify the gaps in the construction solutions for roof stacking, to feed in the innovation pipeline of the European construction landscape in the coming years. This paper presents a comprehensive review of different case studies and efforts in the field of roof raising and its repetition potentials. Based on a structured review, 8 different cases from three different European countries were sorted, placing a variety of methods in comparison with each other. The main contribution of this review lies in the analyses of the existing information in this field and the classification of the different validated methods and approaches that has been used. Finally, despite the existing challenges, it was found that the concept of roof stacking can be widely spread and applied in different contexts. Future research is going to investigate possible solution and to formulate structured scientific approaches to widen its application. [less ▲]

Pour atteindre les objectifs énergétiques de l’Union Européenne pour 2050, et plus largement les objectifs fixés à la dernière COP, le secteur de la construction et de l’habitat doit opérer sa mue vers un modèle plus durable. En Belgique, cela passe par la rénovation et l’amélioration des performances du stock bâti existant. La présente étude porte sur l’identification des différents enjeux (environnementaux, économiques et sociaux) liées à la rénovation en Belgique et tente d’objectiver les barrières (de financement, de communication et de réglementation) à une augmentation du taux de rénovation, à travers une revue de littérature des différentes études et projets portant sur ce domaine en Belgique. Ces résultats initiaux devront permettre ultérieurement la conduite des recherches approfondies visant à la modélisation des effets de plusieurs stratégies possibles d’augmentation du taux de rénovation.
