ORBi Open Repository and Bibliography
In may 2007, the ULg's Administrative Board (joined in June 2007 by the FUSAGx) decided to create an institutional repository and defined a strong institutional self-archiving policy to increase the visibility, accessibility and impact of the University's publications (Board's decision).

Regular moderate exercise has beneficial and protective effects on immunity because it results in a balance of pro- and anti-inflammatory effects. This balance may be disturbed during exhaustive exercise, such as that experienced during competition and overtraining, resulting in immunosuppression.
Humans frequently suffer from upper respiratory tract infections after prolonged intense exercise, whereas horses suffer primarily from lower airway inflammation and/or infection. The underlying...
