The importance of a health problem is based on its current and expected prevalence, its clinical and economic consequences, the social status of people affected by the problem and the availability of an effective treatment. In this paper, we review the main current literature on sarcopenia in order to assess whether this geriatric syndrome could be considered as a major public health problem. Our review highlights that based on its prevalence, its clinical consequences, the limitations of the current available treatments as well as on the fact that many frail patients are affected by this geriatric syndrome, sarcopenia should be considered as a health priority by all interested parties in order to reduce its burden.

Penicillin-binding proteins represent well-established, validated, and still very promising targets for the design and development of new antibacterial agents. The transglycosylase domain of penicillin-binding proteins is especially important, as it catalyzes polymerization of glycan chains, using the peptidoglycan precursor lipid II as a substrate. On the basis of the previous discovery of a noncovalent small-molecule inhibitor of transglycosylase activity, we systematically explored the structure-activity relationships of these tryptamine-based inhibitors. The main aim was to reduce the nonspecific cytotoxic properties of the initial hit compound and concurrently to retain the mode of its inhibition. A focused library of tryptamine-based compounds was synthesized, characterized, and evaluated biochemically. The results presented here show the successful reduction of the nonspecific cytotoxicity, and the retention of the inhibition of transglycosylase enzymatic activity, as well as the ability of these compounds to bind to lipid II and to have antibacterial actions.

Pour appuyer les efforts de conservation de la biodiversité, des processus de transfert de gestion (TG) des ressources naturelles aux communautés locales de base ont été promus à Madagascar depuis 1996 avec un important financement étranger. Ce p’rocessus était censé stimuler une forte responsabilisation des acteurs en plaçant la prise de décisions dans la sphère locale, ce qui améliorerait l’efficacité. Le transfert de fonds et de capacité ainsi que l’appui des partenaires sont également requis pour rendre la décentralisation effective. Pourtant, un désintérêt et une déresponsabilisation croissants quant à la gestion des ressources par les populations locales ont été souvent constatés et le taux de déforestation est resté élevé. C’est le cas de la zone forestière de Mariarano où nous avons eu l’occasion d’observer la mise en œuvre d’un TG. A travers les perceptions des acteurs clés dans le TG : la communauté locale et l’administration forestière, ce travail consiste à dévoiler les enjeux du processus participatif, les impacts de la dépendance à l’aide, les stratégies de contournement des règles par la population locale et l’évolution des rapports entre l’administration et ses partenaires dans le cadre de l’Etat local. A travers des actions déterminées par des prescriptions légales et des délais, les agents d’appuis activent le processus, négligent les clivages au sein de la population locale et cadrent les décisions résultants des négociations vers l’objectif de conservation. Cette procédure fait naître un sentiment d’imposition et aggrave l’illégitimité des normes promues. Par ailleurs, la population locale adopte un comportement opportuniste. Leur participation au processus fonctionne plus comme un mode de contrôle et d’accès aux ressources qu’un mode de préservation de celles-ci. Pour la réalisation des tâches attribuées à la population locale et des activités alternatives des usages, dont l’accès est désormais réglementé, l’appui des partenaires est nécessaire vu leurs faibles capacités financières et techniques. Toutefois, les appuis restent ponctuels et limités selon la priorité et la disponibilité budgétaire des bailleurs de fonds. La loi n’engage pas non plus les partenaires pour faire l’accompagnement sur le moyen terme, bien que ceci soit important pour provoquer des changements. Ceux qui n’ont pas ressenti les avantages concrets sont allés vers des pratiques illégales. Clandestinité et dissimulation sont les stratégies adoptées pour faire valoir leurs droits. Une amplification de la complicité au sein de la communauté gestionnaire est constatée pour contourner les règles. Quant au rapport de l’administration avec ses partenaires, il s’est détérioré. Dans un contexte marqué par la dépendance financière de l’Etat envers les bailleurs de fonds, l’administration est limitée dans ses fonctions et travaille comme consultant de ces derniers. Aux yeux des paysans, l’administration apparaît comme étant inapte à honorer ses engagements, ce qui nuit à sa crédibilité. Ainsi, elle rencontre des difficultés pour obtenir la confiance et la coopération de la population. Or celle-ci constitue le fondement de la gestion participative. La persistance des activités de déforestation résulte donc de l’illégitimité des normes résultantes du processus participatif, du recours des acteurs aux pratiques informelles et enfin de la paralysie de l’administration.

Introduction: Several tools are available for the assessment of muscle mass, muscle strength and physical performance in clinical research. However, few data are available on the usage of these tools in clinical practice. Methods: This study aimed to assess their usage by means of a large online international survey. Since sarcopenia is a specific condition where the assessment of muscle mass, muscle strength and physical performance is important, the survey also assessed the tools used for the diagnosis of this geriatric syndrome. Results: The survey was completed by 255 clinicians from 55 countries across 5 continents. Among these clinicians with geriatrics, rheumatology and endocrinology as major fields of interest, 53.3% assess muscle mass in daily practice, 54.5% muscle strength and 71.4% physical performance. However, the tools used are very different and no single tool is used by all clinicians. The tools and the cut-off values used by clinicians to diagnose sarcopenia are also heterogeneous. Conclusion: Because some tools used for the assessment of muscle mass, muscle strength or physical performance in daily practice are less validated than others, a greater awareness from the clinicians of the importance of using appropriate tools is needed [less ▲]

Public diplomacy is a diplomatic and international communication activity aimed at foreign publics and seeking to create a positive image and/or political influence, contributing to the achievement of foreign policy goals. On June 9th, 2015, public diplomacy scholars and practitioners coming from Europe and Latin America gathered in a research seminar organised by the Centre for International Relations Studies (CEFIR), at the University of Liège. They contributed their works on public diplomacy from the perspectives of its cultural, communicative and image components. The result of that seminar is this book, which reflects the current diversity of theoretical aspects and practices of public diplomacy. Taking the European Union, some Latin American countries (Venezuela and Mexico) and even civil society organisations as the actors whose public diplomacy actions are studied, this book provides both reflections and empirical analysis of public diplomacy strategies developed from different angles.
