Les responsables des formations à la Médecine générale et de famille (MG/MF) des trois universités francophones de Wallonie et Bruxelles souhaitent prévoir la conservation et l’édition online des Travaux de Fin d’Etude (TFE) des Internes en formation. Assembler et publier un grand nombre de travaux montera la force et l’importance du travail fourni par les Internes. La mise à disposition publique nécessite donc un système d’indexation adéquat à la pratique de la MG/MFi. Il s’agit ici de littérature dite « grise » mais dont l’importance ne doit pas être méconnueii En bibliographie usuelle, les publications sont généralement indexées par les Medical subject Heading (MeSH) de la National Library of Medicineiii. Toutefois, il n’est pas aisé de standardiser l’indexation au départ d’une liste de plus de 25.000 MeSH non prévu spécifiquement pour l’exercice de la MG/MF. Dans le cadre de sa thèse de doctorat en médecine générale et de famille (ULg, Prof. Vanmeerbeek), l’auteur a développé un tel système d’indexation. Une nouvelle classification des items non-cliniques, développées sous le nom de Q-Codes a été élaboréeiv. Elle est associée à la Classification Internationale des soins Primaires, deuxième édition (CISP-2). Ces deux outils forment ensemble un instrument de catégorisation de l’activité et des publications en MG/MF. Il est connu sous l’acronyme 3CGP, ou Core Content Classification in GP/FM.v 3CGP offre moins de 900 codes. [less ▲]

This paper presents a computationally-effective macro element for predicting the complete shear response of RC deep beams. The element stems from a three-parameter kinematic theory (3PKT) for the shear strength and deformation capacity of deep beams under double curvature. The macro element consists of two rotational springs and one transverse spring to simulate the nonlinear flexural and shear behaviour of deep shear spans. The element is applied to two deep beams tested to shear failure under three-point bending. The results are used to study the effect of unsymmetrical shear failures on the pre- and post-peak behaviour of nominally symmetrical members. It is found that the post-peak response is sensitive to the unloading path of the shear resisting mechanisms as well as to the global roughness of the critical diagonal cracks. Based on these analyses, modifications to the constitutive relationships of the shear mechanisms are proposed, and the macro element is applied to a continuous deep beam. It is shown that the model adequately captures the complete behaviour of the beam, including the redistribution of forces following the shear failure in the critical shear span. [less ▲]

We consider several possible atmospheric compositions for our nearest neighboring planet, a.k.a. Proxima Can b, and compute the infrared spectrum with modern planetary atmosphere models. To be specific, we consider (1) a bare planet, which has lost its atmosphere; (2) a water-ocean planet; (3) an Earth-analog planet; and (4) a planet similar to Earth but with a lower O2 pressure (< 1mbar) that produces a false positive for the triple signature (H20, O3, and CO2). We discuss the information in each infrared spectrum and the possibility to identify the nature of the atmospheres by remote sensing. The same exercise is performed for a rocky planet in the habitable zone of a K2V star, such as epsilon Eri. [less ▲]

Organ transplantation has grown over the past decades thanks to major improvements in surgical techniques and immunosuppressive treatment. Nuclear medicine is used for non-invasively improving the selection of candidates to give or receive a transplant, for monitoring graft recipients and for diagnosing and managing early and late complications. This review describes the clinical role of nuclear medicine in transplantation and discusses some of the possible perspectives. [less ▲]

Corn grain (Zea mays L.) is widely produced all over the world and is intensively used in poultry and pigs feeding. Drying with hot air is usually utilized to preserve corn after harvest by decreasing the water content. During high temperature drying, major components (starch and proteins) of corn grain undergo some structural changes with possible nutritional implication. This thesis aimed at increasing knowledge regarding the effect of the drying process on the feeding value of the corn grain for broilers and pigs feeding. After the general introduction and a review which attempts to summarize the major findings of previous studies carried out on the effects of drying on the nutritive value of corn for broilers feeding, the first in vitro experiment performed aimed to assess the effect of fluidized-bed drying on the digestibility of dry matter, starch and protein using a sequential pepsin-pancreatin protocol. It appeared that when corn grains harvested at similar moisture content are dried at different temperatures, the digestibility of starch and that of crude proteins are not affected in a similar way. Higher drying temperatures increased the final digestibility of starch while the digestibility of crude proteins decreased mainly during the pepsin step of digestion. Differences in the kinetics of starch digestion according to the corn grain temperature were attributed to the structural modifications induced within starch granules and proteins in response to the drying conditions. As the digestion of starch involves the breakdown of glycosidic bonds and results in the production of various oligosaccharides, a second experiment was performed in order to get more insight into the nature of saccharides released after the in vitro digestion of corn grains. Three methods were thus compared in their ability to provide relevant information about sugar saccharides released during an in vitro digestion procedure that mimics the pig digestive model. High Performance Anion Exchange Chromatography coupled with a Pulsed Amperometric Detector was revealed to give the most effective qualitative and quantitative information regarding the digestion of starch. Five major saccharides were found as the result of in vitro pepsin-pancreatin digestion of corn grain: glucose, isomaltose, maltose, maltotriose and glucosyl-maltotriose. The relative concentration of these saccharides varied according to the temperature applied during the corn drying, suggesting that structural changes occurring within starch granules (partial gelatinization) would lead to different digestion profiles in the small intestine and may therefore affect the nutritional physiology in pig intestinal tract. Protein is also affected by the high drying temperature. Among corn protein subgroups, salt-soluble proteins are the most sensitive to heat and their solubility decreases when the drying temperature increases. In a third experiment, the denaturation of salt-soluble proteins during corn drying and hydrothermal treatment was monitored and modelled. The impairment of corn protein solubility in saline buffer was revealed to depend mainly on temperature, time of processing and moisture content of materials treated. The evolution of extractible salt-soluble proteins content of corn kernels during drying at high temperature was more correctly described using the second order kinetic reaction than with the first order kinetic reaction when classical kinetic models were compared. In a forth study the relationship between the in vitro digestibility of dry matter and the salt-soluble protein index was assessed. It was found that the use of salt-soluble protein index as an indicator of the may lead to doubtful conclusion due to confounding factors (temperature and moisture content). Although this study has achieved some progress in understanding the possible link between corn drying parameters and their effects on the performance of poultry and pigs feeding using corn-based diets, as well as on methodologies that may be used to assess the nutritive value of dried corn grains, complementary studies aiming to determine the effectiveness of these effects on livestock and pigs have to be done.

Calcium carbonate particles are promising candidates as proteins carriers for their controlled delivery in the body. The present paper aims at investigating the protein encapsulation by in situ precipitation of calcium carbonate particles prepared by a process based on supercritical CO2 and using a new type of degradable well-defined double hydrophilic block copolymers composed of poly(ethylene oxide) and polyphosphoester blocks acting as templating agent for the calcium carbonate. For this study, lysozyme was chosen as a model for therapeutic protein for its availability and ease of detection. It was found that by this green process, loading into the CaCO3 microparticles with a diameter about 2 mm can be obtained as determined by scanning electron microscopy. A protein loading up to 6.5% active lysozyme was measured by a specific bioassay (Micrococcus lysodeikticus). By encapsulating fluorescent-labelled lysozyme (lysozyme-FITC), the confocal microscopy images confirmed its encapsulation and suggested a core–shell distribution of lysozyme into CaCO3, leading to a release profile reaching a steady state at 59% of release after 90 min.
