Pars planitis is defined as an intermediate uveitis of unknown background of systemic disease with characteristic formations such as vitreous snowballs, snowbanks and changes in peripheral retina. The incidence of pars planitis varies 2.4–15.4 % of the uveitis patients. The pathogenesis of the disease is to be determined in future. Clinical and(More)
A new method of detecting deadlocks and traps in Petri nets is presented. Deadlocks and traps in Petri nets can be represented by the roots of special equations in CNF form. Such equations can be solved by using the search tree algorithm proposed by Thelen. In order to decrease the tree size and to accelerate the computations, some heuristics for Thelen's(More)
INTRODUCTION Endothelial dysfunction is one of the markers of atherosclerosis. OBJECTIVES The aim of the study was to evaluate endothelial function by assessing flow-mediated dilation (FMD) and to measure the parameters of brachial arterial stiffness in patients with familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) and those with high low-density lipoprotein (LDL)(More)
AIM The aim of this study was to compare coronary calcium scores and aortic calcium scores between patients with severe hypercholesterolemia having a DNA-based diagnosis of FH (FH group) versus patients with severe hypercholesterolemia without the FH gene mutation (NFH group). METHOD A total of 89 FH and 50 NFH patients underwent CT with coronary and(More)
Additional treatment with NaOH of acid activated vermiculite results in even higher increase in the adsorption capacity in comparison to samples modified only in acidic solution (first step of activation) with respect to raw material. Optimization of treatment conditions and adsorption capacity for two cationic dyes (methylene blue (MB) and astrazon red(More)
The aim of this work was the modification of vermiculite in order to produce a low cost, efficient and sustainable adsorbent for dyes and metals. Three activation methods consisting of acid, base and combined acid/base treatment were applied to improve the of vermiculite's adsorption properties. Adsorbents were tested in single, bi- and tricomponent(More)

In the paper the method of computation all deadlocks and traps in the Petri net is presented. This method is based on Thelen method. Methods of calculation of all deadlocks and traps in Petri nets are very time consuming. Therefore it is very important to optimize a computation. The parallel computation method for the time reduction is proposed.(More)
The influence of different acid treatments over vermiculite was evaluated. Equilibrium, kinetic and column studies have been conducted. The results showed that vermiculite first treated with nitric acid and then with citric acid has higher adsorption capacity, presenting maximum adsorption capacities in column experiments: for Astrazon Red (AR), 100.8 ± 0.8(More)
