OBJECTIVE We examined the possible influence of G-->T substitution in transcription factor Sp1-binding site in the gene encoding alpha-1 chain of type I collagen on the risk of stress urinary incontinence. STUDY DESIGN The study group consisted of 50 women reporting symptoms of stress urinary incontinence. Fifty control subjects were treated for benign(More)
Global milk production is undeniably dominated by 2 dairy breeds recognized worldwide: Holstein-Friesian and Jersey. A third breed, Simmental, serves as a dual-purpose breed. The objective of the present research was to establish potential changes in the fractional components of bovine milk protein (mainly whey) in relation to the health status of a dairy(More)
The effect of supplemented commercial diets with crystalline l-tryptophan (TRP—5, 10 and 20 g TRP kg−1) on cannibalism, survival and growth parameters of pikeperch post-larvae (Sander lucioperca) was evaluated. Fifteen-day-old pikeperch larvae (mean weight—6.8 mg) were reared during the next 28 days (20.5 °C, 16L:8D) in glass aquaria in a recirculating(More)
In April 1989 the three European scientist astronauts of the D1 Spacelab Mission were exposed to a 1.5 hours +3G centrifuge run in supine position, resulting in a linear acceleration along the subjects' x-axis. Afterwards, severe motion sickness symptoms were provoked by head movements (Sickness Induced by Centrifugation: SIC). The astronauts mentioned(More)
The aim of the study was to analyze chosen antibacterial protein content, i.e. immunoglobulin G, lactoferrin and lysozyme in bovine milk obtained from cows of four breeds raised and maintained under intensive production technology, that is in the free stall system, and fed total mixed ration diet (TMR system). The studies were conducted on milk from four(More)
The importance of +Gz-induced loss of consciousness as a major cause of inflight incapacitation emphasizes the need for predicting +Gz-tolerance and investigating its possible determinants. The cardiovascular changes from +Gz-stress are initially counteracted reflexly by the cardiovascular autonomic system. The integrity of neural cardiovascular reflex(More)
Many industrial and agricultural chemicals (including heavy metals and alkylphenols) present in the environment have adverse effects on the reproductive function in fish. Three studies were conducted to assess toxicity of these chemicals towards reproduction of freshwater fish. It was shown that heavy metals added to the diets accumulate in brain tissue of(More)
The category of large-cell neuroendocrine carcinoma (LCNEC) of the lung, proposed to expand the traditional scheme of typical carcinoid, atypical carcinoid (AC), and small-cell carcinoma (SCC), based on histologic features, has not been defined in cytology. We attempt to describe LCNEC cytologically. Cytologic features in 16 histologically confirmed LCNECs(More)
