Efficiency of production is increasingly important with the current escalation of feed costs and demands to minimize the environmental footprint. The objectives of this study were 1) to estimate heritabilities for daily feed consumption and residual feed intake and their genetic correlations with production and egg-quality traits; 2) to evaluate accuracies(More)
Mindfulness training has proven to be an efficacious therapeutic tool for a variety of clinical and nonclinical health problems and a booster of well-being. In this paper we propose a multi-level metacognitive model of mindfulness. We postulate and discuss following hypothesis: (1) mindfulness is related to the highest level of metacognition; (2)(More)
Background:To investigate whether copy number gain of MET or hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) affect trastuzumab sensitivity in HER2-positive metastatic breast cancer (MBC).Methods:We analysed 130 HER2-positive MBC treated with trastuzumab-based therapy. MET and HGF gene copy numbers (GCN) were assessed by fluorescence in situ hybridisation (FISH) in primary(More)
The exclusion limit expressed as the largest pore size of capsules composed of hydrogel Ca-alginate membrane and hydroxy-propyl-ammonium starch liquid core considered as the immunoprotective system has been determined by means of inverse size exclusion chromatography with dextran molecular weight standards. The exclusion limits of the capsules were not(More)
PURPOSE P95HER2 (p95) is a truncated form of the HER2, which lacks the trastuzumab-binding site and contains a hyperactive kinase domain. Previously, an optimal clinical cutoff of p95 expression for progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS) was defined using a quantitative VeraTag assay (Monogram Biosciences) in a training set of(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with human epidermal growth factor receptor (HER)-2+ breast cancer are at particularly high risk for brain metastases; however, the biological basis is not fully understood. Using a novel HER-2 assay, we investigated the correlation between quantitative HER-2 expression in primary breast cancers and the time to brain metastasis (TTBM) in(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of leflunomide in patients with active rheumatoid arthritis (RA). MATERIAL AND METHODS The study included 100 patients (88 women and 12 men) with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). The mean age was 46.5 years and the mean duration of the disease was 10.3 years. The inclusion criteria were a(More)
OBJECTIVES To assess the effect of cryopreservation on the elasticity and compliance of arterial allografts. MATERIALS AND METHODS Iliofemoral segments of arteries and veins harvested from multiorgan donors were divided into two groups: fresh-control, tested for 24 hours after harvesting, and cryopreserved in liquid nitrogen after pretreatment with 20%(More)
OBJECTIVES To assess the prevalence of sella turcica anomalies on lateral cephalograms of children with malocclusion. To describe the craniofacial morphology in patients with sella turcica anomalies. METHODS Lateral cephalograms obtained at ages 8-16 years (n = 431) were assessed for good visibility of cephalometric structures, including the sella(More)
Mindfulness, the core teaching of the Buddhist tradition, has been receiving serious attention from the West in recent decades as evidence of the efficacy of mindfulness-based interventions for emotional distress have become available. Although traditional Buddhist texts have described the mechanisms of mindfulness and the way to cultivate it in great(More)
