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).
This decision led to the official launch, in November 2008, of the ORBi platform including both the Academic Bibliography and the Institutional Repository of the Wallonia-Europe University Academy.

Contribution à la compréhension de l'immunopathogénie de l'aspergillose nasosinusale chez le chien - Vanherberghen, Morgane
Sinonasal aspergillosis is a sever fungal rhinosinusitis mainly affecting large breed dogs in their mid ages. Its most common causal agent is A. fumigatus, a fungus that is largely spread in the atmosphere. As of today, the diagnostic and treatment for this disease remain a challenge for the practicing veterinary doctor.
Very little data is available to explain why such a ubiquitous fungus induces a sever rhinosinusitis in otherwise healthy dogs, while other dogs do not present any sign of fungal infection. The authors of a study analysing the expression of mRNA encoding for certain cytokines and chimiokines in the nasal...
Contribution à l’amélioration de l’épidémiosurveillance des maladies animales en Afrique francophone de l’Ouest et du Centre - Ouagal, Mahamat
Livestock is an important source of income in most developing countries. In Africa, it often makes up 10% to 20% of the gross national product at level. One of the major constraints to the development of this sector is animal diseases, which sometimes generate significant economic losses with social consequences that are often very burdensome for farmers. They restrict trade between countries. Reducing the impact of these constraints necessarily involves the prevention and the control of diseases. For this purpose, an adequate knowledge of the epidemiology of the diseases is a prerequisite to define a strategy for their prevention and/or...
