one case of severe accidental hypothermia; rectal temperature was 25 degrees C. Hypoxemia unmodified by 100 O2 inhalation in an ordinary face-mask was easily corrected using a face-mask CPAP; a ventilation-perfusion mismatching could be implicated in the cold induced hypoxemia. Active rewarming (1.5 degrees C/h) was pursued from 25 to 37 degrees C, using non aggressive methods: warming blankets and a Bennett heated humidifier inserted in the CPAP system. Even in severe hypothermia successful results may be obtained without resort to sophisticated methods. [less ▲]

Lasofoxifene, a new selective estrogen receptor modulator (SERM), was investigated to assess its efficacy and safety in the management of postmenopausal osteoporosis. A dose of 0.5 mg/day of lasofoxifene, given to postmenopausal women with osteoporosis, induced a reduction in vertebral fracture rates after 3 years and a reduction, after 5 years, of nonvertebral fractures, estrogen receptor-positive and invasive breast cancers, major coronary heart diseases and strokes. However, this dose was associated with significant side effects including venous thromboembolisms, pulmonary embolisms, leg cramps, hot flushes, uterine polyps, endometrial hypertrophy, arthralgia and vaginal candidiasis. Since no effect was evidenced on hip fractures, the risk-benefit ratio of this new medication, compared with previously marketed SERMs is, at best, uncertain. [less ▲]

Listeria monocytogenes (LM) is known to cause severe invasive disease in pregnant women and in newborns. Fortunately, despite the wide natural distribution of this pathogen, clinically overt neonatal infections occurs rarely. As a consequence, listeriosis is not always considered for early onset neonatal infection, especially when blood culture is negative. Indeed, identification of listeria in the blood stream by conventional bacteriological methods remains the reference method for diagnosing listeriosis. We report a case of congenital listeriosis with negative blood culture despite typical chorioamnionitis, where the pathogen was cultured in gastric aspirate.Although the disease is rare, congenital listeriosis still remain a possible challenging condition in neonatal practice as revealed by this case report. This also shows the importance of multisite bacterial culture beside conventional blood and CSF culture, in combination with histological examination of the placenta for the diagnosis of congenital listeriosis.

Rationale: In the context of increased obesity rates in Europe, we launched the multidisciplinary project FOOD4GUT (funded by the Excellence Program of the Walloon Region, Belgium) which proposes an innovative nutritional approach – food and supplement intervention to increase inulin prebiotic intake – to control obesity and related metabolic disorders. We aim to examine whether a shift in the gut microbiota composition by prebiotic improves the obese phenotype. Methods: Placebo-controlled parallel study including 150 obese subjects (BMI > 30 kg ·m−2; 18– 65 years, recruited in three university hospitals in Belgium), with at least one of the following criteria: (pre-)diabetes, hypertension, dyslipidemia, and/or liver steatosis. The participants were randomly assigned to receive either 16 g/day of inulin (fibruline, Cosucra) or placebo (maltodextrin, Cargill) with dietary advice to increaseor not the consumption of vegetables rich in inulin type fructans intake for 3 months. Results: Recipes containing high amounts (around 15 g/day) of inulin were validated prior the start of the trial. So far, 31 patients were recruited in the St-Luc-UCL Hospital (age 51 ± 1.9; BMI 34.9 ± 0.8 kg/m2). The gut microbiota analysis before the intervention revealed that patients exhibiting a higher level of Bifidobacterium and Faecalibacterium, are associated with a low level of Lactobacillus, Blautia and Akkermansia muciniphila. Some bacteria such as Bilophila arenot discriminant. Conclusion: The first outcome data will be collected in May 2017, including blood parameters, anthropometric measurements, fibroscan and abdominal CT-scan. We expect differential biological response to the dietary intervention in view of the patient’s initial microbial profile. The results will be presented for the first time in the ESPEN congress in September 2017. [less ▲]

Objective: To date, serum free testosterone measurement is considered to be the gold standard for the diagnosis of hypogonadism in elderly males but it is not available to all subjects suspected of a decrease in testicular function. Therefore, we evaluated whether the Androgen Deficiency in Aging Males (ADAM) questionnaire, in its original or in a modified 'quantitative' version (qADAM), could be used as a surrogate to biochemical determinations for the identification of hypogonadism in elderly males. Methods: 5028 men, aged 50-70 years, spontaneously consulting for the assessment of their gonadal function were studied. ADAM and qADAM, allocating a value of 1 point for any positive answer to each of the 10 questions of the ADAM test, were assessed for their ability to discriminate between males with free testosterone levels below or above 70 ng/l. Results: The sensitivity and specificity of the ADAM score were 81% and 21.6% respectively. The use of ADAM resulted in an appropriate classification of our population in normal or hypogonadal subjects in 44.5% of the cases. The area under the receiver operating characteristics (ROC) curve for the qADAM (0.529) revealed a highly marginal interest of this quantitative approach compared with the original scoring system. Conclusions: The ADAM test has a high sensitivity to identify aging males with low free testosterone levels. However, due to its lack of specificity, this test cannot be used as a surrogate to serum free testosterone testing for the identification of androgen deficiency in elderly, community-dwelling males.

Electronic nose is a promising technique for field monitoring of malodours in the environment. It is based on an array of non-specific gas sensors coupled with some form of mathematical data processing method to analyse the global response patterns. Some applications concerning the control of water quality are reported in the literature. They often impliy the generation of a headspace gas above liquid samples, but they also concern the odour emitted in the air from wastewater. The typical needs of the final user require both qualitative and quantitative approaches, i.e. both discriminating between slight variations in complex gas mixtures and monitoring a global odour signal which can be correlated with classical characterisation variables of water or air quality. Although potential applications in odour assessment by electronic noses are numerous, a number of challenges still need to be overcome: understanding and controlling the impact of environmental parameters (such as temperature and humidity), improving sensor sensitivity and noise reduction or developing calibration procedures to account for sensor drift. The present limitations of electronic nose technology restrict its use in the environment to the odour monitoring in the surroundings of the emission with instruments specifically designed for the application.
