We analyzed ion composition and volume of the hemolymph of Ligia pallasii in four different stages of the molt cycle using capillary electrophoresis and 3H-inulin. The main ions in the hemolymph were Na+, K+, Mg2+, Ca2+, and Cl−. The Ca2+concentration increased significantly during the molt by 47% from intermolt to intramolt and by 37% from intermolt to(More)
STUDY DESIGN The study was carried out in rabbit. OBJECTIVE To investigate the arterial blood supply of the spinal cord in rabbit as model in experimental spinal cord ischemia surgery.

OBJECTIVE Endometriosis affects 5-15% of women in the general population and 40% of women seeking infertility evaluation. Its etiology and pathogenesis is controversial. Abnormalities of genes involved in the regulation of apoptosis have been thought to play a role in origin. Hence, we investigated the expression of pro-apoptotic and anti-apoptotic genes in(More)
Postpartum maternal anemia (hemoglobin concentration below 10 g/dL) is a common problem in obstetrics. Human recombinant erythropoietin, which has been shown to correct the anemia of end-stage renal disease and eliminate the need for transfusions, was used in a comparative study of women with postpartum hemoglobin concentrations below 10 g/dL. Five daily(More)
Candida-associated denture stomatitis was demonstrated by its cultivation in 171 out of 240 patients examined with partial or total dentures. After taking smears from lesions of the oral mucosa (tongue, cheeks, palate) and the contiguous denture surface by cotton wool swabs and inoculating them onto Sabouraud glucose agar and CHROMagarCandida, individual(More)
OBJECTIVES Endometrial cancer is one of the most common malignancies in women. The prevention has failed so far to develop an effective screening program and its incidence is rising in proportion to the incidence of cervical cancer. In recent years the investigation of malignancy genomics (genetic and epigenetic changes) has become the main focus of(More)
Endometriosis (ENDs) and adenomyosis (ADNs) are estrogen-dependent diseases. The aim of this study was to determine the clinical usefulness of examining endometrial biopsy specimens for aromatase cytochrome P450 (CYP19) as a diagnostic importance for endometriosis and adenomyosis. In general, the RT-PCR analyses of 101 samples revealed increased aromatase(More)
BACKGROUND Plenty of information related to alcoholism can be found in the literature, however, the studies have mostly dealt with the predominance of male alcoholism and data related to addiction in women are desperately scarce and difficult to find. Basic demographic data focusing on the impact of acute alcohol intoxication on the circumstances of death(More)
Many pesticides used in agriculture have a negative effect on organisms. The group of hazardous pesticides includes the cholinesterase inhibitor bendiocarbamate. According to literature, bendiocarbamate has relatively low toxicity in mammals and vertebrates in general, since it does accumulate in their tissues and the cholinesterase activity returns to norm(More)
