Population vulnerability to COVID-19 in Europe: a burden of disease analysis

COVID-19 by using estimates of population age structure and YLD for health conditions linked to severe illness from COVID-19. Methods Population and YLD estimates from GBD 2017 were extracted for 45 ...

Residential green space and medication sales for childhood asthma: A longitudinal ecological study in Belgium

Methods: Asthma prevalence was estimated from sales data of reimbursed medication for obstructive airway disease (OAD) prescribed to children between 2010 and 2014, aggregated at census tract level (n ...

An evaluation of species distribution models to estimate tree diversity at genus level in a heterogeneous urban-rural landscape

methods to model tree diversity at genus level based on environmental covariates and presence point data. We aimed to identify the drivers and suitable methods for urban and rural tree diversity models in ...

An evaluation of species distribution models to estimate tree diversity at genus level in a heterogeneous urban-rural landscape

diversity data necessary to investigate such associations are often missing. Here, we evaluate two methods to model tree diversity at genus level based on environmental covariates and presence point data. We ...

Superficial mycoses in Belgium: Burden, costs and antifungal drugs consumption

mycoses in Belgium and to assess trends in associated antifungal consumption. Methods The burden of dermatophytoses (including onychomycosis), as well as skin and genital candidiasis, was estimated using ...

A new multiplex RT-qPCR method for the simultaneous detection and discrimination of Zika and chikungunya viruses

outbreak, early diagnosis, and therefore fast and adequate detection, is needed. To this end, a multiplex reverse transcription real-time polymerase chain reaction TaqMan method was designed to detect Zika ...

Potential impact of reduced tobacco use on life and health expectancies in Belgium

Abstract: Objectives We investigated the potential impact of reduced tobacco use scenarios on total life expectancy and health expectancies, i.e., healthy life years and unhealthy life years. Methods Data ...

Detection strategy targeting a chloramphenicol resistance gene from genetically modified bacteria in food and feed products

associated recombinant DNA. Although the use of AMR genes gives rise to public health and environmental concerns regarding their potential acquisitions by pathogens and gut microbiota, no method targeting AMR ...

Residential green space and seasonal distress in a cohort of tree pollen allergy patients

exposure to residential green space on distress in the susceptible subpopulation of adults sensitized to tree pollen allergens. Methods In a panel study of 88 tree pollen allergy patients we analyzed ...

A new multiplex RT-qPCR method for the simultaneous detection and discrimination of Zika and chikungunya viruses.

a multiplex reverse transcription real-time polymerase chain reaction TaqMan® method was designed to detect universally Zika and chikungunya viruses. DESIGN: Two methods, targeting different genome segments, ...
