INTRODUCTION The present study was conducted to assess the value of serum concentration of lipopolysaccharide-binding protein (LBP) in patients with systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS), sepsis and septic shock with respect to its ability to differentiate between infectious and noninfectious etiologies in SIRS and to predict prognosis. METHODS(More)
Several recent studies describing a solely vascular presentation of cystathionine beta-synthase (CBS) deficiency in adulthood prompted us to analyze the frequency of patients manifesting with vascular complications in the Czech Republic. Between 1980 and 2009, a total of 20 Czech patients with CBS deficiency have been diagnosed yielding an incidence of(More)
1. Growth curves of two lines (S,D) and their reciprocal hybrids (in total,. n = 344) were evaluated by the Richards function. Geese were weighed at 7 d intervals to the ninth week, and then at 92, 154, 192 and 217 d of age. Food and water were supplied ad libitum. 2. The accuracy of curve fit measured by the coefficient of determination (R2) for different(More)
Although several genetic factors have been implicated as determinants of blood folate concentration in various populations, their effect on folate status in the Czech population has not yet been examined. We explored whether blood folate concentrations in healthy Czech population are associated with polymorphisms in 5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase(More)
This paper compares the growth patterns of chickens, turkeys, ducks and geese. The growth curves and their parameters were estimated by the Richards function. In this work, weight data of females of current sire lines (62 chickens, 47 ducks and 42 geese) and commercial medium-type hybrids (27 turkeys) were used. Birds were fed ad libitum and weighed at 7 or(More)
Growth curves based on the Richards function are evaluated for four highly inbred tines of fowl (F, > 99.9 p. 100) and some of their F, hybrids. The largest deviations of the estimated course of growth (maximum : 9.3 p. 100) in terms of live weight occurred before 6 weeks of age ; inbred and hybrid groups showed a tendency to deviate in opposite direction(More)
