    Black soldier fly [BSF; Hermetia illucens L. (Diptera: Stratiomyidae)] larvae are very effective in transforming low-grade food waste into valuable high-end proteins and fat, in intensive production facilities. The production output of this species is growing quickly, but upscaling brings risks to the health status of the reared insects. Until now, not a single major case of disease outbreak caused by a pathogen in a BSF production unit has been reported. This contrasts with data on other species of mass-produced insects, which have experienced various disease outbreaks, indicating that BSFs are comparatively resistant to insect diseases. Further, there are no records of natural infections caused by entomopathogens in BSF. In this review, the known entomopathogens of Diptera, especially BSF, and their potential risks for causing disease in these insects are summarized.

    The objective of the Northwest European project Grow2build is to support the supply chain of flax and hemp building materials from production of raw material to the production and implementation of end products. Up until now, 11 organisations from Belgium, France, the UK, Germany and the Netherlands have formed a consortium with a wealth of expertise in construction and bio-based building materials. The consortium aims to contribute to the integration of bio-based materials eg. hemp and flax in the construction industry and to improve the product value chain. This note “10 recommendations for stimulating biobased building materials (based on hemp and flax)” is one of the instruments to reach the aim.

    In de vrijloopstal liggen de koeien meestal op een organische bedding en scheiden daar mest (feces en urine) uit. Om de bedding voldoende droog en schoon te houden wordt er regelmatig nieuw strooisel aangevoerd en wordt de toplaag bewerkt. Op basis van onderzoek- en praktijkervaringen tot nu toe kunnen een aantal richtlijnen gegeven worden om dit type beddingmanagement succesvol uit te voeren. Naast de praktische bruikbaarheid van de richtlijnen geeft een uitwerking daarvan ook een idee van wat er komt kijken bij het managen van een bedding in de vrijloopstal.

    lymph-node biopsy - thin melanoma - sentinel - positivity - guidelines - diagnosis
    Background In the transition from the sixth to the seventh edition of the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) melanoma staging system, mitotic activity was incorporated, while Clark level of invasion was abandoned. Objectives To investigate the effect of this change on the pathological tumour (pT) 1 substaging of primary cutaneous melanomas and the possible clinical implications. Methods Patients with pT1 melanomas, diagnosed in the period January 2003 to March 2011, were selected from a population-based cohort study on cutaneous melanoma in the eastern part of the Netherlands. The pT1 melanomas were systematically reviewed by an expert pathologist and classified according to both the sixth and the seventh editions of the AJCC staging system. The shift of melanomas between pT1 substages, classified according to the two staging systems, was determined. Results In total, 260 pT1 melanomas were included. Overall 28% (57/207) of all pT1a melanomas shifted to pT1b when classified according to the new seventh staging classification, because of the presence of mitoses. Some 32% (17/53) of all pT1b melanomas shifted to pT1a. The percentage of pT1b melanomas relative to all pT1 melanomas increased from 20% to 36%. Conclusions The addition of mitotic activity to the pathological staging system, according to the seventh edition of the AJCC staging system, resulted in a considerable change in the classification of thin cutaneous melanomas. This shift has clear clinical implications, as it is advised in the Dutch guideline that patients with pT1b melanoma should be offered a sentinel lymph node biopsy.

    AirTree is preparing for land-based testing at the NIOZ/IMARES test facility. As the Ballast Water Management System (BWMS) developed by AirTree uses ozone as active substance, IMO Guideline G9 applies and Basic and Final Approval are also required. In preparing the Basic Approval dossier, it appeared that too little is known about the development of disinfection by-products (DBP) during the treatment process.
    Seed governance. From seed aid to seed system security in fragile areas

    Intergovernmental agencies and development organizations, including Cordaid, consider interventions directed at seed security of utmost importance to support smallholders recovering from conflict situations and disasters, and to contribute to revitalisation of local agricultural production and food security. There is, however, considerable debate about the most appropriate type and strategic level of intervention to enhance smallholders’ seed security in conflict and post-conflict areas. Given the co-existence of different types of interventions and agencies directed at providing seed security, the governance of seed security has become very relevant, questioning what collaborative arrangements between government, business and civil society can help to effectively address seed insecurity. Donors and development practitioners often prefer certified or improved seed to seed from the informal sector. However, farmers’ evaluation criteria can differ from criteria developed by breeders or those setting seed certification standards, and the agro-ecological conditions under which varieties are selected may differ from those on-farm, thus affecting crop performance.

    Report on developing guidelines and procedures for the pesticide registration in Ethiopia in a scientifically underpinned way and as specific as possible for Ethiopian conditions. It covers the aspects of efficacy assessment, human health risk assessment as well as environmental risk assessment. It aims to develop the capacity at the APHRD to apply these guidelines and procedures. The Work package will result in an evaluation manual plus software tool for the Animal and Plant Health Regulatory Directorate (APHRD) of the Ministry of Agriculture of Ethiopia. The user-friendly software tool operationalises the guidelines and procedures for human health risk assessment and environmental risk assessment; all basic pesticide data can be entered in it and these will be used for the risk estimates.

    critically-ill patients - thermodynamic incompatibility - intestinal-obstruction - in-vitro - motility - proteins - absorption - guidelines - mixtures - feedings
    A serious complication seen in critically ill patients is the solidification of enteral nutrition causing gastrointestinal obstruction. It has been suggested that enteral nutrition enriched with insoluble fibers may increase the risk of this complication. Therefore, we investigate the effect of soluble and insoluble dietary fibers on the coagulation of a casein-based enteral nutrition in an artificial gastric digestion model. A 100% casein-based enteral nutrition was enriched with increasing concentrations of soluble fibers (acacia fiber, oligofructose and inulin) and insoluble fibers (soy polysaccharide, resistant starch and alpha cellulose). After digestion in an artificial gastric model, the chyme was poured over sequentially placed sieves, separating the coagulate into size fractions of larger than 2 mm, between 1 and 2 mm, and between 0.25 and 1 mm. Of these fractions we measured wet weight, dry weight and protein content. A significant effect on the fraction larger than 2 mm was considered to be clinically relevant. Addition of high concentrations soy polysaccharide and resistant starch to a casein-based enteral nutrition, did not alter the wet weight, whereas dry weight and protein content of the coagulate was significantly reduced. When high concentrations of soy polysaccharide and resistant starch are added to a 100% casein-based enteral nutrition, the coagulate consist of more water and less proteins, which may lead to an increased protein digestion and absorption in a clinical setting. The suggestion that insoluble fibers increase the risk of gastrointestinal obstruction in critically ill patients is not supported by these data.

    In teelten die los van de ondergrond op verschillende substraten worden geteeld, wordt het drainwater gerecirculeerd. In het recirculatiewater kunnen diverse pathogenen (ziekteverwekkers) zoals schimmels, bacteriën en virussen voorkomen. Daarom wordt op veel bedrijven het drainwater ontsmet en dit kan op verschillende manieren worden gedaan met ontsmettingsapparatuur en ontsmettingsmiddelen. Bij de teelt in de vollegrond vindt nu nog geen of nauwelijks recirculatie van drainagewater plaats. De samenstelling van drainagewater verschilt aanzienlijk van drainwater. Daardoor is de ontsmettingsmethodiek niet per definitie gelijk. Zo kunnen organische stof en ijzerdeeltjes de transmissie sterk omlaag brengen. Dit kan tot gevolg hebben dat bijvoorbeeld een UV-ontsmetting onvoldoende werkt. Drainagewater behoeft daarom soms een voorbehandeling voordat het met een standaard ontsmettingsmethode behandeld kan worden. Voor drainagewater worden op basis van analyses en interviews aanbevelingen gedaan voor verbetering om tot een goede ontsmetting van drainagewater te komen.
