OBJECTIVE The impact of fast changes in obesity indices on other measures of metabolic health is poorly defined in the general population. Using the Polish accession to the European Union as a model of political and social transformation we examined how an expected rapid increase in body mass index (BMI) and waist circumference relates to changes in lipid(More)
INTRODUCTION The reflection coefficient of the membrane (sigma) is one of the basic parameters of the polymer membrane transport. Classical methods used to determine this parameter require intensive mixing of two solutions separated by a membrane to eliminate the effects of concentration polarization. In the real conditions, especially in biological(More)
BACKGROUND A system of network forms of Kedem-Katchalsky (K-K) equations for ternary non-electrolyte solutions is made of eight matrix equations containing Peusner's coefficients R(ij), L(ij), H(ij), W(ij), K(ij), N(ij), S(ij) or P(ij) (i, j ∈ {1, 2, 3}). The equations are the result of symmetric or hybrid transformation of the classic form of K-K equations(More)
BACKGROUND Methods of Peusner's network of thermodynamics (PNT) allow to obtain network forms of Kedem-Katchalsky (K-K) equations. The equations are the result of symmetric and/or hybrid transformation of the classic form of the K-K equations. For ternary non-electrolyte solutions, comprising a dissolvent and two solutions dissolved, the following network(More)
BACKGROUND Peusner Network Thermodynamics (PNT) enables symmetrical and/or hybrid transformation of classical Kedem-Katchalsky (K-K) equations to network forms. For homogenous nonelectrolyte solutions that consist of solvent and two dissolved substances, two symmetrical and six hybrid forms of network K-K equations can be obtained that contain symmetrical(More)
BACKGROUND Peusner's network thermodynamics (PNT) allows symmetrical and/or hybrid transformation of Kedem-Katchalsky (K-K) equations to network form. For homogenous solutions that consist of solvent and two soluble nonelec-metrolyte substances, there are two symmetrical and six hybrid forms of network K-K equations that contain symmetrical (Rij or Lij) or(More)
BACKGROUND Peusner Network Thermodynamics (PNT) enables symmetrical and/or hybrid transformation of classical Kedem-Katchalsky (K-K) equations to network forms. For homogenous nonelectrolyte solutions, two symmetrical and six hybrid forms of network K-K equations can be obtained that contain symmetrical (Rij or Lij) or hybrid (Hij, Wij, Nij, Kij, Sij or(More)
INTRODUCTION Using symmetrical or hybrid transformation Kedem-Katchalsky membrane transport equations (K-K) for ternary solutions can be transformed to symmetrical (Rij lub Lij) or hybrid (contain coefficients Hij, Wij, Sij, Nij, Kij or Pij) network form. PURPOSE Derivation of network form of K-K equations for homogeneous ternary non-electrolyte solutions(More)
BACKGROUND Peusner Network Thermodynamics (PNT) enables transformation of Kedem-Katchalsky (K-K) membrane transport equations from classical to network form. For ternary and homogenous nonelectrolyte solutions, transformation results in two symmetrical and six hybrid forms of network K-K equations. Symmetrical forms of these equations contain Peusner's(More)
INTRODUCTION Symmetrical or hybrid transformation of Kedem-Katchalsky membrane transport equations (K-K) can be performed using Peusner's network thermodynamics (PNT). For ternary and homogeneous solutions of non-electrolytes it result in two symmetrical and six hybrid network form of K-K equations. The symmetrical form of these equations contain Peusner's(More)
