Anthropometric, lifestyle and metabolic determinants of resting heart rate. A population study. (1/1233)

AIM: To clarify the determinants of resting heart rate at the population level in a random sample of the Belgian population. METHODS AND RESULTS: Data of 5027 men and 4150 women aged 25-74 years obtained from a Belgian nationwide survey were analysed. In multivariate analysis, blood pressure strongly correlated with heart rate in men (t = 12.4 for systolic; t = 8.8 for diastolic) and women (t = 12.0 for systolic; t = 7.7 for diastolic). Age (t = -3.4 in men; t = -8.1 in women) and height (t = -3.7 in men; t = -3.1 in women) correlated negatively with heart rate. Smoking raised heart rate in men (1-19 cigarettes.day-1, t = 6.1; > or = 20 cigarettes.day-1, t = 10.3) and women (> or = 20 cigarettes.day-1, t = 3.5). Serum phosphorus correlated negatively with heart rate (t = -3.5 in men; t = -8.3 in women). Serum log alkaline phosphatase (t = 6.7 in men; t = 7.2 in women) and serum protein (t = 5.3 in men; t = 4.4 in women) correlated positively with heart rate. CONCLUSION: At the population level, blood pressure, cigarette smoking, serum alkaline phosphatase and serum protein correlate independently, significantly and positively with heart rate, and age, height and serum phosphorus negatively.  (+info)

In-vitro activity of antimicrobial agents against Neisseria gonorrhoeae in Brussels. (2/1233)

The minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) of 18 antimicrobial agents against 104 strains of Neisseria gonorrhoeae isolated in the Brussels area between January and October 1976 have been measured. The MICs for penicillin G, ampicillin, amoxycillin, carbenicillin, and cephalexin showed a bimodal distribution. The second modus strains of cephalexin (MIC = 6.25 microgram/ml) were relatively resistant to penicillin G (MIC greater than or equal to 0.08 microgram/ml). About 51% of all strains were relatively resistant to penicillin G, 40.5% to ampicillin (MIC greater than or equal to 0.16 microgram/ml), 46% to amoxycillin, and 47.5% to carbenicillin. For cephalexin and cephaloridine, 25% and 8.5% respectively of all strains were relatively resistant (MIC greater than 3.12 microgram/ml). For cefazolin all MICs fell into a range of 0.097--3.12 microgram/ml. Resistance to tetracycline, doxycycline, minocycline, erythromycin, and spiramycin (MIC greater than or equal to 1 microgram/ml) was found in 9.5%, 7%, 6%, 36.5%, and 71% respectively of all isolates. No strains were resistant to rifampicin. For chloramphenicol and thiamphenicol the MICs ranged from 0.39 to 12.5 microgram/ml and from 0.195 to 3.12 microgram/ml respectively. The results for sulphamethoxazole, trimethoprim, and the combination of sulphamethoxazole and trimethoprim in a 20:1 ratio are given and discussed. The fractional inhibitory concentration (FIC) indices have also been calculated. No beta-lactamase-producing strains were found, and a contingency coefficient C has been determined for all the pairs of antibiotics investigated.  (+info)

Trends in mortality from cutaneous malignant melanoma in Belgium. (3/1233)

BACKGROUND AND METHODS: Changes over time of mortality rates from cutaneous malignant melanoma (CMM) in Belgium were analysed, based on people (n = 3695) aged 25-84 years, who died of CMM from 1954 to 1992. All data were collected from the Belgian National Institute of Statistics. For the log-linear analysis and calculation of the average annual change, only the data from 1973 to 1992 were considered. RESULTS: The age-adjusted mortality rates (per 10(5)) for the age group 25-84 years old increased from 0.5 in 1954 to 3.0 in 1992 in men, and from 0.8 in 1954 to 2.2 in 1992 in women. The average annual percentage change in men (-0.003%) was stable over the period 1973-1982, and increased to 4.4% over the period 1983-1992. In women, the average annual increase was 4.6% over the period 1973-1982, and continued to increase to 6.8% over the period 1983-1992. Log-linear analysis showed that the change in rates for both men and women was mainly due to an age-'drift' effect, contrary to the results of the average annual percentage change in men. CONCLUSION: The risk of dying from CMM increased in men and women continuously over the whole period, irrespective of birth cohort. In both men and women, there was approximately a 20% increase in CMM mortality per 5-year period.  (+info)

High frequency of BRCA1/2 germline mutations in 42 Belgian families with a small number of symptomatic subjects. (4/1233)

AIM: The initial risk assessments for BRCA1/2 mutation carriers and estimates of carrier frequencies were based on extended pedigrees with a large number of symptomatic subjects. When counselling based on BRCA gene mutation analysis was initiated, we faced requests for counselling mostly from members of small families with only two or three affected members. We report on the likelihood of finding a BRCA mutation in such small families. METHODS: In the first 100 families that came for oncogenetic counselling since September 1994, a BRCA1/2 gene mutation screen was initiated if there were two or more symptomatic first degree relatives, if one of them had ovarian cancer, or if one breast cancer was diagnosed before the age of 50 years. RESULTS: BRCA gene mutations were found and confirmed by sequencing in 14 out of 42 families (33%); 10 mutations were in the BRCA1 gene and four in the BRCA2 gene. Our findings indicate an increased probability of detecting a BRCA gene mutation when ovarian cancer occurred in the family. There is no increased probability of detecting a mutation with increasing numbers of breast cancers. Only 22% of the eligible presymptomatic family members opted for testing. The presymptomatic female carriers currently prefer breast surveillance rather than prophylactic surgery. CONCLUSION: BRCA1/2 gene mutation testing can be done with reasonable efficiency in the Belgian population when there are two symptomatic family members. The availability of testing does not lead to a high frequency of requests for testing by presymptomatic family members.  (+info)

Plasma homocysteine concentration in a Belgian school-age population. (5/1233)

BACKGROUND: Total plasma homocysteine (tHcy) is an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease in adults. Data for children and adolescents are lacking. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to provide a reference range for tHcy and to explore the relation between tHcy and nutritional indexes in a Belgian pediatric population. DESIGN: tHcy, folate, and vitamin B-12 were measured in 647 healthy children (353 girls and 294 boys) aged 5-19 y. RESULTS: The tHcy distribution was, as in adults, skewed to the right [geometric mean (-1 SD, +1 SD): 7.41 micromol/L (5.51, 9.96)]. Concentrations were lowest in younger children and increased with age. After the tHcy distribution was examined according to age, 3 age ranges were distinguished: 5-9 y [6.21 micromol/L (5.14, 7.50)], 10-14 y [7.09 micromol/L (5.69, 8.84)], and 15-19 y [8.84 micromol/L (6.36, 12.29)]. We observed no significant differences in tHcy values between girls and boys in children aged < 15 y; in postpubertal children, however, concentrations were higher in boys than in girls. In the 3 age groups, folate was inversely correlated with tHcy; the negative relation between tHcy and vitamin B-12 was less strong. Familial cardiovascular disease was more frequent in children who had hyperhomocysteinemia. CONCLUSIONS: These observations suggest that in children, as in adults, genetic, nutritional, and endocrine factors are determinants of the metabolism of homocysteine. The significance of tHcy values in childhood and young adulthood in terms of predicting cardiovascular risk in adulthood should be investigated.  (+info)

Cross-border alliances in health care: international co-operation between health insurers and providers in the Euregio Meuse-Rhine. (6/1233)

On behalf of the European Commission, a Cross-Border Health Care Project was undertaken to explore how citizens living in the Euregio Meuse-Rhine can obtain improved access to health services in the Member States concerned: Belgium, Germany, and The Netherlands. Main attention of the project is focused on practical issues of cross-border health care. The first results have shown that the new cross-border health alliances resulted in improved possibilities for patients to access more health care facilities than before. The creation of health care alliances could also be an example for future collaboration between the countries in Western, Central, and Eastern Europe. This paper also analyses the rights of patients on cross-border care in the Euregion.  (+info)

AIDS: is health education the answer? (7/1233)

In the absence of a vaccine or effective treatment, prevention of infection with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is presently the only feasible option for the control of AIDS. Most transmission is related to high risk behaviours, and attempts to change these behaviours are key objectives of many AIDS Control Programmes. Health Education, or Information, Education and Communication (IEC) strategies have been developed to achieve these objectives. Yet few evaluations of health education programmes have been carried out, and the intimate relationship between AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases is often ignored. Behaviour has a multitude of determinants, and consequently no simple approach focusing on one aspect of behaviour can be expected to be successful. Not only does knowledge need to be imparted, but attitudes, beliefs, social- and peer-group norms need to be addressed. The development of IEC programmes is hampered by the specific routes of transmission of the HIV, involving sensitive areas of human behaviour, and by a lack of knowledge about these behaviours. Nevertheless, a number of seemingly successful programmes have been carried out. Active participation of the target groups appears to be a key factor in success. Although health education makes intuitive sense, rigorous documentation and strict evaluation is necessary to provide its justification and to maximize the potential of this strategy.  (+info)

Amplified-fragment length polymorphism analysis versus macro-restriction fragment analysis for molecular typing of Streptococcus pneumoniae isolates. (8/1233)

Forty-eight pneumococci were genotyped by on-line laser fluorescence amplified-fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) and pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) analysis of chromosomal restriction fragments. Overall, the data generated by the two methods corresponded well. However, with AFLP, clusters were delineated at a higher similarity level, and isolate differentiation was more pronounced. AFLP and PFGE were equally efficient for assessing intraserotype diversity. We conclude that AFLP is a useful alternative to PFGE.  (+info)

The politics of Belgium takes place in a framework of a federal, parliamentary, representative democratic, constitutional monarchy.[3] Sorry, but making Belgian politics sound simple is nigh impossible with two legislative bodies, so lets make it even more difficult. Belgium is divided into three communities: Flemish, French and German-speaking. Furthermore it has three regions: Flemish, Walloon and Brussels. The Flemish region and community have only one shared government, while Brussels has an overall government, a Flemish government,a French government and a bilingual government. The French community unconstitutionally renamed itself the Federation Wallonia-Brussels, forming a federation within a federation. The Flemish politicians proclaimed that all posts containing that name are automatically invalid. Still following? Despite having no farmland at all, Brussels has a minister of agriculture. Belgium as a whole has five ministers of work and five posts of minister-president, divided ...

Two major lethal diseases, sleeping sickness and visceral leishmaniasis, are initiated by tsetse flies and sand flies respectively. Since 2006, the research of Dr. Guy Caljon with colleagues at Vrije Universiteit Brussel and Instituut Tropische Geneeskunde Antwerpen explores the impact of insects on parasite infection. He discovered that tsetse flies are more than just flying syringes ...

This year has seen several changes and impending changes in the law affecting the conduct of clinical trials in Belgium. These are largely derived from the implementation of new EU legislation including the clinical trials directive and the amendments to the Community pharmaceutical code. Of particular interest is how the Belgian legislator has treated the liability of trials sponsors and the treatment of biologicals. The new "Bolar" exemption permitting trials of generics of in-patent drugs is also of particular significance, but one should also bear in mind the ability of those in drug development to rely on other existing exemptions in patent law in order to undertake trials of new agents falling within third party patents.. Belgium is a significant venue in Europe for the conduct of clinical trials. According to Belgian government statistics, for example, the second highest number of phase I studies per head of population is carried out in Belgium with the United Kingdom having the highest ...

Wilrijk (former, original spelling: Wilrijck) is a district of the municipality and city of Antwerp in the Belgian province of Antwerp. Wilrijk had been a separate municipality before January 1, 1983; the enlarged municipality of Antwerp was decentralized in 2000 and Wilrijk became one of the citys nine districts. This suburb is also known as the Goat village, because of its Goat parade. Every five years this parade attracts a lot of tourists. The next one will be held in 2020. Although it is now part of the city of Antwerp, Wilrijk has kept its own distinct atmosphere. A mixture of modern and older neighbourhoods, this suburb has a good balance between residencial, commercial and industrial activities. Its facilities for sport and recreation in a green environment make it a desirable area in which to live. This area was already inhabited in 600 BC. This has been shown by the excavation of a Celtic burial site in Wilrijk, which is the oldest sign of civilization yet discovered in the region ...
This article describes the roll out of Malacef (IV artesunate) under named patient programmes in three EU member countries. France has a system that uses proactive authorisation and surveillance, whereas Belgium and the Netherlands depend on the passive detection of adverse events. Most patients are treated at academic medical centres, but more specialised general hospitals also have IV artesunate in stock. The geographical distribution of Malacef throughout the Netherlands was relatively rapid, which is not surprising for a small country in which the professional groups are highly organised. In Belgium and France, the geographical distribution of Malacef proceeded more slowly. In Belgium, this is due to the fact that the use of Malacef is restricted to select specialised centres; in France, the slow distribution was likely due to a centralised procedure that is tightly controlled by the French government and requires strict and therefore lengthy application procedures.. The major limitations of ...

Belgian gay rights activists are grouped into several organisations. Several of these are part of Çavaria and Wel Jong Niet Hetero (Dutch for Young But Not Straight), two associations of Dutch-speaking LGBT organisations in the Flemish and Brussels regions of Belgium. The French-speaking counterpart in the Walloon and Brussels regions is the Federation des Associations Gayes et Lesbiennes. Belgian gay rights activism is made most visible by means of the BLGP "Belgium Lesbian and Gay Pride" demonstration marches. The marches are held annually in Belgiums capital Brussels since 1996, with similar events having been held intermittently in preceding years in both Brussels and other cities. While the marches have a festive character, they are also used to present the gay movements political agenda in the form of a list of demands. The list was updated a number of times (in 1996, 1999, 2000, 2004 and 2005) and has included demands for anti-discrimination laws, inclusion of gay relationships in ...

In the Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Division of the Department for Head and Neck Surgery at the University Hospital of Antwerp (UZA), the computer has become a loyal companion for operations relating to the sinus cavities in the skull. These cavities, situated near the nose for example, are separated by slice-thin walls. When a bone tumour has to be removed from the sinuous cavity in the forehead, the surgeon must be very careful not to penetrate by accident the cranial cavity. The surgical clearance of a stuffed sinus in the case of chronic sinusitis, which makes the patient suffer from inflammation of one or more of the sinuses, has to be performed without inflicting damage to the sinus wall. The new computer assisted surgery system substantially reduces the risk to make any mistakes.. Professor Jos Claes, a surgeon in the ENT Division at UZA, works together with the neurological surgeon to perform interventions via the nose to the gland, that is situated below the brain and plays a crucial role in ...

No one knows the future. The Walloon option for wich we are trying to prepare the ground here intends to be realistic, in the sense that it is based on what currently exists and what is relatively controllable in the near future. After defining two lines of action which should take priority, we will sketch out some features of the future architecture of a Wallonia within the context of a decreasingly Unitarian Belgium. If Flanders does not appear in this scheme, it is quite simply because it is not up to Walloons to present their options for a neighbouring region. It is up to the Flemings to determine their own future.. 1. Two lines of action. - Making up for a clear symbolic deficit. There is a flagrant imbalance in the Belgian State between a Flanders conscious of itself and promoting its own image and a Wallonia whose populations are still mrning for a Unitarian Belgium that is fading away. For the Walloons, the importance of a symbolic possession-taking is striking. Earlier we showed how ...
The present study used data from the European Internet MSM Survey (EMIS) to investigate sexual behaviour of MSM who were sexually active when travelling abroad in the last 12 months prior to the survey. Our results for the case of Belgium show that HIV and STI are highly prevalent among travelling MSM, and that they adopt more sexual risk behaviours than MSM who were not sexually active abroad. This evidence supports cross-border development of prevention activities for HIV and STI among MSM.. MSM residing in Belgium who had sexual contact abroad were more likely to be expatriates and to be living in a bigger city. This finding can probably be explained by the substantial population of expatriates living in Brussels and working at its many European and international institutions. Belgian resident MSM having had sex abroad were also better educated and on average older than their counterparts who did not report any sexual activity abroad. Being able to travel implies disposable income to do so. ...

In our extensive survey of 269 Walloon and Brussels municipalities, we found that in 2015 alone a total of € 205,344 of public money is earmarked for the sterilization of stray cats. More precisely: 63 municipalities have a specific policy and budget for management of stray cats, 47 municipalities are either in the discussion stage to provide a budget for sterilisation of stray cats, or see it as a possibility, 96 municipalities thought such a policy irrelevant in their case, and 74 municipalities gave no answer.. At the regional level, 61% of Brussels municipalities and 20% of Walloon municipalities have a policy for sterilisation of stray cats.. Note also that these amounts do not include parallel actions undertaken by private individuals, non-profit organisations and animal shelters, which assume all expenses involved in the sterilisation of stray cats. The total amount spent by all stakeholders, directly or indirectly, is thus much more than the budget provided by towns and ...

To describe the obstetric outcome in women at ages >= 45. A retrospective cohort study on a large existing database covering all deliveries in the Flanders region, Belgium, was performed, comparing obstetric outcomes at age 25, 35, 40 and 45 or older, for the period 2005-2010. In the period studied, 421 women gave birth at maternal age >= 45 vs 3,405, 15,206, 22,586 at ages 40, 35 and 25, respectively. With advancing maternal age, a significant linear increase for low birth weight (< 2,500 g) and preterm delivery (< 37, < 35 weeks and < 29 weeks), maternal hypertension and diabetes, both primary and secondary caesarean section, was noted. Between ages 40 and >= 45, both fetal and early neonatal death demonstrated a significant rise from 4.9/1,000 and 1.8/1,000 to 26/1,000 and 9.5/1,000, respectively. With advancing maternal age, a gradual but not statistically significant decline in the proportion of male fetuses was noted, from 51.6% at 25, to 47.2% in the oldest group. Multivariate analysis ...

The various steps in importing a car into Belgium from outside the European Union are lengthy and complicated.

A car imported into Belgium from outside the EU as part of a move of your personal and household effects can be exempt from customs duties and value-added tax if the following conditions are met: You resided outside the EU for at least 12 months before establishing residence in Belgium; You acquired the car abroad and drove it for at least six months before arrival; You paid sales tax in another country; You will retain the car for your personal use for at least 12 months following the date of import. The Belgian customs authorities require the following ...
This problem really is getting out of control. Only recently there have been many stories about the centers to house those seeking asylum in Belgium are over-filled to bursting with over 2,600 more people coming in just in the month of October. And the government is trying to deal with this problem while the national debt is growing larger and the EU-economic crisis becomes more extreme every day. And, at the same time, while more and more people flood Belgian shores, there is rioting in Antwerp between rival immigrant groups; Kurds and Turks, that the authorities have to deal with. The big riot on Saturday in Antwerp was the third such disturbance in only one week. Bus shelters were torn apart, store windows were smashed, cars were vandalized, at least one person was stabbed and many have been taken to hospital. Each side blames the other for responsibility for the violence. Surely anyone can see that this problem is not going to disappear, take care of itself or become better instead of ...
Approval was recently granted for a new treatment for spinal muscular atrophy (SMA). Given that the treatment is effective when administered early and the societal burden of SMA-related disability, the implementation of a newborn screening program is warranted.. The authors describe the stepwise process that led them to launch a newborn screening program for SMA in Southern Belgium. Different political, ethical, and clinical partners were informed about this project and were involved in its governance, as were genetic and screening labs.. They developed and validated a newborn screening method to specifically recognize homozygous deletions of exon 7 in the SMN1 gene. Subsequently, a 3-year pilot study has been recently initiated in one Belgian neonatal screening laboratory to cover 17.000 neonates per year. Coverage extension to all of Southern Belgium to screen 55.000 babies each year is underway.. ...

Belgium - Belgium and World War I: As international tensions heightened during the summer of 1914, Germany made plans to besiege France by crossing Luxembourg and Belgium, despite their neutrality.

GENEVA (9 March 2015) - The United Nations Special Rapporteur on the human rights situation in Eritrea, Sheila B. Keetharuth, today started an official visit to Belgium (9-11 March) to collect first-hand information from Eritrean refugees and migrants on the human rights situation in Eritrea.. Since 2014, Ms. Keetharuth has carried out similar information-gathering missions to Djibouti, Ethiopia, Germany, Italy, Malta and Tunisia. "Due to lack of access to Eritrea," she said, "I have been engaging with Eritrean refugees and migrants outside of their home country, and all others concerned by human rights in Eritrea, including those who consider themselves to be victims of alleged human rights violations, human rights defenders and other civil society actors." The human rights expert has made several official requests to visit Eritrea since her appointment in November 2012, which have so far not been granted. She has repeatedly urged the Eritrean authorities to cooperate with her mandate in order ...
For comic book fans around the world, a handful of cities evoke strong images: superheroes jumping from skyscrapers in New York; Tintin running across a building in a Brussels mural; wide-eyed schoolgirls looking for romance in Tokyo.. But colourful cityscapes, designed by local artists, are finally putting an African capital city on the comic map. The place is Kinshasa in the Democratic Republic of Congo, and it is not difficult to see why.. Complete with dusty boulevards, monster traffic jams in blazing sunsets and so-called shegue, or street children, such comic portraits of the Congolese capital are among the main features of the style developed by home-grown talent.. Decades of shared colonial history with comic-mad Belgium certainly had an influence on the emergence of the Congolese comic scene. In fact, most books by Barly Baruti, the Congolese author best known outside his country, are published in Brussels ...

In accordance with Article 6 of Regulation (EC) No 396/2005, the evaluating Member State (EMS), Belgium, received an application from ISK Biosciences Europe N.V. to modify the existing maximum residue levels (MRLs) for the active substance cyazofamid in hops, globe artichokes, leeks and spring onions/green onions and Welsh onions. In order to accommodate for the intended uses of cyazofamid, Belgium proposed to set the MRL at 0.4 mg/kg for leeks and spring onions/green onions and Welsh onions, at 0.15 mg/kg for globe artichokes and at 20 mg/kg for hops.
