Nusinersen treatment significantly improves hand grip strength, hand motor function and MRC sum scores in adult patients with spinal muscular atrophy types 3 and 4

Capacity (FVC) transiently increased at month 6 (p = 0.01), whereas the Peak Expiratory Flow (PEF) did not. The Activity Limitations scale declined significantly prior to start of treatment (p < 0.01) and ...

The effect of a shelf placement intervention on sales of healthier and less healthy breakfast cereals in supermarkets: A co-designed pilot study.

a healthy eating intervention with a commercial retailer is feasible, but concurrent retail environment factors likely limited the public health impact of the intervention. Health Topics:  Food consumption ...

Position paper on the use of an “estimated acceptable concentration” (EAC) as basis for a control policy's action level for carcinogens unintentionally present in food

Background In the absence of legal maximum limits, the competent authority may act if high contamination levels that endanger public health are identified. A pragmatic approach to identify whether a value is ...

All-cause mortality supports the COVID-19 mortality in Belgium and comparison with major fatal events of the last century.

first wave of the epidemic was a key indicator to validate the Belgium’s high COVID-19 mortality figures. A COVID-19 mortality surveillance limited to deaths from hospitalised and selected ...

Risk assessment of nitrate and nitrite in feed

be underestimated due to the absence of data on certain key ingredients in the diets of this species. Due to the limitations of the data available, the CONTAM Panel could not characterise the health ...

Efficient control of Japanese encephalitis virus in the central nervous system of infected pigs occurs in the absence of a pronounced inflammatory immune response.

a favorable outcome of JEV infection in pigs and help to explain the limited neurological disease compared to other hosts. We show that the NLRP3 inflammasome, a key mediator of neurologic disease in mice, is ...

A genoserotyping system for a fast and objective identification of Salmonella serotypes commonly isolated from poultry and pork food sectors in Belgium.

poultry-derived food products. Therefore, a strict monitoring of Salmonella serotypes in food-producing animals is needed to limit the transmission of the pathogen to humans. Additionally, Salmonella can lead to ...

Physico-chemical characterisation of the fraction of silver (nano)particles in pristine food additive E174 and in E174-containing confectionery.

products, respectively. Similar size distributions were obtained by spICP- MS and TEM, considering the limit of detection of spICP- MS. The median of the equivalent spherical diameter of the fraction of ...

Deep amplicon sequencing for culture-free prediction of susceptibility or resistance to 13 anti-tuberculous drugs.

Source: Eur Respir J (2020) Abstract: Conventional molecular tests for detecting complex (MTBC) drug resistance on clinical samples cover a limited set of mutations. Whole genome sequencing (WGS) typically ...
