Relationships between functional anaerobic indicators and the character of cellular muscle energy metabolism were studied. Twelve untrained male students were tested by a specific anaerobic test on the treadmill. The mean values of the anaerobic test were as follows: blood lactate 10.69 mmol · 1−1, running speed 16.08 km · h−1 and duration 92.67 s. The(More)
The described radiochromatographic method permits fast and high-sensitivity monitoring of soil biodegradation products of an insect growth regulator for its environmental risk assessment. We analyzed and compared two diastereoisomers of ethyl N-(2-(4-[(2-hydroxycyclohexyl) methyl]phenoxy)ethyl)carbamate, namely its cis-(1S,2S) isomer JN-W330 and a(More)
The enantioselectivity potential of five strains of Saccharomyces cerevisiae was studied for the reduction of ethyl N-{2-{4-[(2-oxocyclohexyl)methyl]phenoxy}ethyl} carbamate (1), an insect juvenile hormone bioanalog. The products of the reaction, the cis and trans isomers of ethyl N-{2-{4-[(2-hydroxycyclohexyl)methyl]phenoxy}ethyl} carbamate (2 and 3), were(More)
AIM The aim of the present study was to evaluate the usefulness of four interleukins (IL-2, IL-6, IL-8 and IL-10) for melanoma detection and correlate these interleukins with sentinel node metastasis positivity. PATIENTS AND METHODS A group of 236 persons was assessed: 175 patients with melanomas and 61 healthy persons. Melanoma patients were divided to(More)
Juvenoids are biologically active compounds, of relatively low toxicity to humans, that efficiently inhibit the fertility of insects. However, little attention has been paid to the stability and toxicity of products that may be generated by their biodegradation in the ecosystem. This study describes a simple comparison of the toxicity of the active compound(More)
Juvenoids are efficient pesticides with relatively low toxicity to humans. However, few studies have evaluated the effect of degradation by soil microorganisms on their toxicity. The effects of bacterial, fungal and yeast isolates on aerobic decomposition of ethyl N-[2-[4-(2,2-ethylenedioxy-1-cyclohexylmethyl)phenoxy]ethyl] carbamate during eight weeks were(More)
BACKGROUND Ileus states are serious conditions that may lead to pathophysiological changes which in turn can result in perforation of bowel, peritonitis, sepsis or death. Our paper discusses paralytic ileus states, which can be caused by psychopharmaceutics with anticholinergic side effects. METHODS AND RESULTS Retrospective analysis of cases of paralytic(More)
Microbial degradation of two diastereoisomeric forms 2 and 3 of a selected juvenoid (insect juvenile hormone bioanalog), ethyl N-{2-{4-[(2-hydroxycyclohexyl)methyl]phenoxy}ethyl}carbamate was studied and the degradation products analyzed. Degradation experiments were performed using simple modeling under laboratory conditions. A Candida sp. strain T1,(More)
The cinematographic method was used for studying the changes of the growth rhythm of the leaves in Nicotiana tabacum cv. Samsun after the inoculation with Peronospora tabacina Adam. The leaves were screened only at the maturing phase when displaying characteristic disturbances of the growth rhythm. The leaves of a healthy plant show a regular growth rhythm,(More)
