BACKGROUND: Different clinical trials show beneficial effects of physical training offered during and / or after breast cancer treatment. However, given the variety of side effects that may be encountered, physical training could be combined with psychological, relational and social guidance. This kind of multidisciplinary program has been little studied so far. AIM: To determine the benefits of a three-month multidisciplinary rehabilitation program among women after breast cancer treatment. DESIGN: Controlled no-randomized trial. SETTING: University for outcomes, University Hospital Center for interventions. POPULATION: Two hundred and nine outpatients who have been treated for a primary breast carcinoma. METHODS: Patients were divided into a control group (n=106) and an experimental group (n=103) which has benefited from a rehabilitation program of three months including physical training and psycho-educational sessions. The assessments, performed before and after the program, included functional assessments ("Sit and Reach Test", maximal incremental exercise test and "Six-Minute Walk Test"), body composition measurements (body mass index (BMI) and body fat percentage) and a questionnaire (European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer Quality of Life Questionnaire-Core 30). RESULTS: After three months, flexibility, walking distance and all parameters measured during the maximal incremental exercise, except maximal heart rate, were significantly improved in the experimental group. The body fat percentage was significantly decreased and a significant improvement was observed for perceived health status (quality of life), functional role, emotional state, physical, cognitive and social functions and for most symptoms. In the control group, most of these improvements didn't appear and a significant increase in BMI and body fat percentage was observed. CONCLUSIONS: This trial identifies the benefits of a well detailed multidisciplinary rehabilitation program, including physical re-conditioning and psycho-educational sessions, with important improvements in functional capacity, body composition and the majority of functions and symptoms among women after breast cancer treatment. CLINICAL REHABILITATION IMPACT: Through its results, this study could contribute to the development of hospital quality standards for oncologic rehabilitation. Physiotherapists can efficiently propose this kind of multidisciplinary rehabilitation program. [less ▲]

The hydroperiod of breeding habitats imposes a strong selection on amphibians and pond-breeding species usually exhibit a high degree of plasticity in the duration of larval period. However, the potential for phenotypic plasticity in fast developing species was investigated only in a small number of anurans, and the specific response to environmental cues such as low water versus decreasing water level, as well as the effects of such cues on particular developmental stages, are even less understood. In this context, we investigated the plastic response to pond desiccation in a neotropical species (Ceratophrys stolzmanni) by raising tadpoles in three water level treatments: constant high, constant low and decreasing. The growth rates were the highest reported for amphibian tadpoles (up to 0.3g/day) and the time to metamorphosis was short in all treatments, with the fastest developing tadpole metamorphosing in only 16 days after egg deposition. Individuals from the constant high water level treatment had a higher growth rate than those in the other two treatments, whereas decreasing and constant low water levels had similar effects on development, speeding up metamorphosis. In turn, this involved a cost as these tadpoles had a lower body size and mass at metamorphosis than the ones raised in constant high water levels. The final stages of metamorphosis, when tadpoles are the most vulnerable, were shorter in tadpoles exposed to a decreasing water level, allowing them to leave water quickly. Our experiment demonstrates that phenotypic plasticity is maintained even in environments devoid of permanent aquatic habitats. Ceratophryd tadpoles are able to shorten their developmental time when they perceive a risk of desiccation and react similarly to cues coming from the two unfavorable water conditions showing their adaptation to ephemeral and unpredictable breeding habitats.

Understanding the potential drought characteristics under climate change is essential for reducing <br />vulnerability and establishing adaptation strategies, especially in the Huang-Huai-Hai Plain (3H Plain) which is the grain production base in China. In this paper, the variation of drought characteristics including drought event frequency, duration, severity and intensity for the past 50 years (1961-2010) and future scenarios (2010-2099) based on observed meteorological data and RCP 8.5 projections were investigated, respectively. Firstly, the applicability of three climatic drought indices including the Standardized Precipitation Index (SPI), the Standardized Precipitation Evapotranspiration Index based on the Penman–Monteith equation (SPEI-PM) and the Thornthwaite equation (SPEI-TH) were compared in tracing recorded agricultural drought areas. Then, the drought characteristics including drought event, duration, severity and intensity using “run theory” was analyzed for both historical observations and future RCP 8.5 scenarios based on the proper index. Correlation analysis between drought indexes and agricultural drought areas showed that SPEI-PM performed better than SPI and SPEI-TH in the 3H Plain. Based on the results of SPEI-PM, droughts over the past 50 years have experienced reduced drought with shorter durations, and weaker severity and intensity. However, for the future RCP 8.5 scenario, drought is predicted to rise in frequency, duration, severity and intensity from 2010-2099 although drought components during the 2010-2039 were milder compared to historical conditions. This study highlights that the estimations for atmospheric evaporative demand would bring in differences in long term drought trend of drought indexes and consequently the applicability in 3H Plain. The results of this paper can help inform researchers and local policy makers to establish drought risk management strategies. [less ▲]

Lors d’un travail de recherche, nous avons rencontré des agriculteurs de la zone limoneuse en Wallonie, un territoire de culture des plus productifs. Ces agriculteurs ont en commun d’avoir installé des bandes aménagées en bordure de parcelles dans le cadre des méthodes agro-environnementales (MAEC - dispositifs de la Politique Agricole Commune visant à protéger l’environnement dans les espaces agricoles). Nous avons tenté de comprendre ce que sont et ce que pourraient devenir les bandes aménagées pour ces agriculteurs. En effet, alors que de nombreux travaux se sont intéressés aux aspects techniques, notamment à la composition et à la gestion des mélanges semés, peu d’attention a été portée aux agriculteurs et à la façon dont ils intègrent ces mélanges dans leur pratique. Nous explorons, à travers notre analyse, la possibilité d’une co-construction des MAEC avec les agriculteurs pour une action agro-environnementale pertinente aussi du point de vue de la production agricole.

Le but de cet article est de présenter les avantages de la tomographie computérisée à faisceau conique (CBCT) par rapport à la tomographie computérisée (CT) classique et de rapporter quelques applications cliniques. Inventé pratiquement pour les dentistes, en particulier pour l'implantologie, le CBCT a trouvé une indication incontournable dans l'imagerie des sinus, de la chirurgie maxillo-faciale et orale, en parodontologie, endodontie et orthodontie. Le CBCT s 'est avéré utile également dans l'imagerie des lésions de différentes origines des mâchoires avec, toutefois, une réserve concernant le bilan d'atteinte des tissus mous (dans ce cas, une IRM - ou un CT avec injection de produit de contraste - serait préférable). Dernièrement, l'application du CBCT s'est élargie à l'imagerie du rocher et, même, des petites articulations des extrémités. [less ▲]

Background: The study was organized by the Belgian National Reference Center (NRC) for Streptococcus agalactiae or GBS, and carried out in Vietnam. The aim of the study was to determine the prevalence of GBS colonization among pregnant women in Hanoï and to characterize the capsular-polysaccharide (CPS) type of the isolated strains. Methods: For a 2-months period in 2015, 888 recto-vaginal swabs were collected in Bach-Mai-Hospital from pregnant women at 35-37 weeks’ gestation and were cultured for detection of GBS. Strains were stored and transferred to the Belgian NRC for further characterization. CPS-typing was performed by both latex agglutination and PCR (Poyart, 2007; Kong, 2008). Results: Among the 888 swabs, 111 were positive for GBS, that is a prevalence of colonization of 12.5%. A total of 90 strains were available for typing: 91,11% could be serotyped by latex agglutination and all the strains, including the 8 phenotypically non-typable strains, were successfully genotyped. CPS type V was the most prevalent (36.7%) followed by CPS types Ib (25.6%), III (21.1%), VI and VII (8.9% and 4.4%). CPS type II was found twice and serotype Ia was found once. CPS types IV, VIII and IX weren’t present in this population. Conclusion: With predominance of types V, Ib and III, this distribution of CPS-types of GBS colonizing pregnant women in Hanoï, Vietnam, differs from distributions described in Europe and in o Asian countries. This study provides useful information for the development of a universal vaccine that could contribute to improve the prevention of neonatal GBS infections. [less ▲]

Objectives: High incidence of GBS sepsis has been reported in HIV-exposed but uninfected (HEU) infants in both developed and developing countries, particularly late-onset diseases. We aimed determining the prevalence, the characteristics and the risk factors of GBS carriage in HIV-infected and HIV uninfected pregnant women (PW). Methods : Between 1/01/2011 and 31/12/2013, HIV-infected (n=132) and uninfected (n=123) PW had recto-vaginal swabs for GBS detection performed at 35-37 weeks of gestation and at deliver Demographic, obstetrical and medical data related to HIV-infection were prospectively collected. Serotyping of GBS strains was performed on a limited number of randomly selected samples (26 from HIV-infected and 13 from uninfected PW). Results : The overall prevalence of GBS carriage was not statistically different between HIV-infected and uninfected PW (31% vs 24,4% respectively). Age, nadir CD4 cell count, CD4 cell count at delivery and detectable viral load at delivery were not associated with GBS carriage rate in HIV-infected PW. A distinct pattern of GBS serotype was found in HIV-infected PW who were predomina colonized by serotype III (12/26) while HIV-uninfected PW were mostly colonized by serotype Ia (8/13) (p<0,05). Conclusions: As previously reported in other countries, HIV-infected PW do not have significantly higher rate of GBS colonization. However, our results suggest that HIV-infected PW are more lik be colonized with serotype III strains, that is the main serotype associated with late-onset neonatal sepsis. Ongoing research aims at characterizing the clonal features of the isolated strains [less ▲]

Methods: A multiplex-PCR, using a set of specifically designed or already described (Kataja, 1999; Malbruny, 2011) primers was developed and used to detect, in GBS, three genes for erythromyc resistance, ermB, ermTR, mefA and one gene for clindamycin-resistance lsaC. AdhP gene amplification was used as control for GBS identification. All(219) GBS isolates from invasive infections in newborns and adults received by the Belgian National Reference Center for GBS in 2015, and control strains were tested for erythromycin/clindamycin susceptibility (disk-diffusion/broth- microdilution) and for detection of resistance genes. Results: PCR products demonstrated the expected respective sizes. The method has been validated successfully according to ISO15189 analytical requirements. Of the 219 isolates, 67(30,67%) w resistant to erythromycin and/or clindamycin: 44/67(65,78%) showed a constitutive-MLS phenotype and 10/67(14,9%) the inducible-MLS phenotype. Among the constitutive-MLS strains, 73% harboured ErmB gene, 13% ErmTR, 7% ErmB+mefA and 7% ermB together with LsaC gene. The inducible-MLS strains harboured mostly ErmTr gene (89%) and the others the ErmB gene. Among the 10/67(14,9%) GBS strains with an M-phenotype (isolated resistance to erythromycin), the MefA gene was exclusively detected. Among the 3(4,48%) strains showing an isolated resistance to clindamycin (L-phenotype), the LsaC gene was detected. Conclusion: The developed multiplex PCR is able to detect simultaneously four genes involved in MLS resistance in GBS. In 2015, 30,6% of the invasive GBS strains isolated in Belgium were resist to macrolides and/or lincosamides. The emergence of the L-phenotype in GBS described since 2010, justifies the relevance to also detect LsaC gene together with ErmB, ErmTr and MefA. [less ▲]

Aim: Improving knowledge and characterization of GBS strains colonizing pregnant women in Belgium. Methods: In 2013, collection of 387 strains of GBS from 80 laboratories participating in a national survey among pregnant woman. For each strain, determination of capsular-polysaccharide type agglutination and PCR, of pili-type by PCR and of antimicrobial susceptibility by disk-diffusion, broth-microdilution and detection of resistant genes by PCR. For serotype III strains, determination sequence-type by Multiple-Locus Sequence-Typing (MLST). Results: Serotype III was the most prevalent (28.5%) followed by serotypes V, Ia, II, IV and Ib (20.4%, 19.9%, 17.8%, 7%, 5.4%). Serotypes VI, VII and IX were found each once. All strains remained susceptible to penicillin (MICs: 0.03-0.125 mg/L) and other beta-lactams tested; 28.7% were resistant to erythromycin and 26.7% to clindamycin. With regards to pili, all 387 strains harboured one the PI-2 variants alone or in combination and 70.3% contained PI-1. The 110 serotype III isolates were resolved into 18 STs. The most common were ST-17 (35.5%) followed by ST-19 (30%) and ST- ST-27, ST-23 (<=5%). Conclusion: Among GBS from colonized pregnant women in Belgium: capsular-type and pili distributions, and MLST profile among type III strains were quite similar to reported data from Europ and USA during the last decade. As showed in this study, penicillin remains the first line drug of choice. On the contrary, resistance rates against macrolides/lincosamide, has reached a plateau since a decade, but it is noteworthy to notify the emergence of strains with isolated resistance to clindamycine.
