Both earlier investigations and complete formulas of pet food for dogs show that professionally prepared pet food is based in 30% on the material of the plant origin. Our own investigations prove that animal feeding stuffs of the plant origin are very often vectors of many undesirable substances (including micotoxins) that are unfavourable for carnivores.(More)
The immunological, haematological and biochemical analyses of blood plasma in bitches with 50 days lasting induced zearalenone micotoxicosis were carried out. It can be indirectly suggested that the inhibition of the humoral reaction of the organism, stimulation of detoxification effect in the liver and decreased cellular answer took place.
Zearalenone is a mycotoxin widely occurring in cereals and animal feed, and it is associated with hyperestrogenism and other reprodutive disorders in animals. A new method of detoxication of feedstuffs involves alkaline hydrolysis of toxic macrolactone (1) (as well as model compounds (2a, 2b)). The method caused modification of zearalenone structure under(More)
UNLABELLED In Kraków, the second largest town in Poland, cardiovascular disease (CVD) mortality rate is lower than in most top largest towns in Poland and lower than the rate for total Polish population. AIM The aim of the present analysis was to compare socioeconomic status (SES), prevalence of CVD risk factors and SCORE assessment of risk in Krakow with(More)
In this study we assessed the genomic stability of Mycobacterium bovis BCG Moreau seed lots used in Poland for BCG vaccine production since 1955 by pulsed field gel electrophoresis (PFGE), amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) and random amplification of polymorphic DNA (RAPD). BCG vaccine lots were more closely related the original lot -M. bovis(More)
In Poland, where the wP vaccine has been used since 1960, pertussis rates increased in the mid-1990s. In 2012, the rate of pertussis recognised by surveillance was unexpectedly found to be two-fold higher than in the previous decade. Quality measures on potency and vaccine working seeds were introduced, to confirm the possible impact of manufacturing(More)
Zearalenone (ZEA) is a macrocyclic lactone, estrogenic, diet-depending and fusaric micotoxin, which is produced on many kinds of cereals and feeds in the favourable conditions of humidity and temperature. The structure of ZEA is similar to the structure of estrogens and it enables binding to the estrogenic receptors. The stimulation of protein synthesis in(More)
The aim of the study was to determine how a low dose of zearalenone applied orally for eight days influences the level of zearalenone (ZEN) and alpha-zearalenole in blood plasma and causes the occurrence of histopathological changes in the cells of the ovarian follicles in sexually immature gilts. The animals were divided into 2 groups (control, C; n = 4(More)
INTRODUCTION The optimization of quality testing strategy of products containing probiotics might allow to general improvement of its safer use in humans. The goal of the study was the evaluation of quality expressed by identity, colony forming unit (CFU) and antibiotic sensitivity ofprobiotics used in medicinal products available in Poland using the(More)
INTRODUCTION Familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) is a severely underdiagnosed and undertreated genetic disorder. Little is known about regional variation in the prevalence of FH, and information for Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) is scarce. This paper assesses the prevalence of FH and related cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors in Poland. MATERIAL(More)
