Abstract: The changes of blood erythrocytes transport function in patients with prostate adenocarcinoma have been studied according to alterations in Na+/K+-ATP-ase activity and permeability of Na+ and K+ ions, before and after the plastic orchiectomy. The results of the study revealed that activity of Na+/K+-ATP-ase was increased compared with the data before the orchiectomy, but this parameter was reduced compared with control group. The increased amounts of the Na+ as well as K+ ions were also observed in the extracellular area compared with the same data before the orchiectomy. The amount of cholesterol, after plastic orchiectomy, was reduced compared with the data gained before orchiectomy, but the data were greater than those of the control group. It may be presumed that one of the reasons for change of Na+/K+-ATP-ase activity is variation of cholesterol content in erythrocyte membrane. Changes of the active transport system, in turn, affect the transport function of the erythrocyte membrane. In spite of surgical intervention, full recovery of patients does not take place after the plastic orchiectomy. Comparative normalization and approaching to the control group of the given indices in post-operation period (~6 months after surgery) indicate strengthening of the immune system and correspondinglyprotective abilities of an organism, which was proved by the anamneses of patients.

Abstract: Objectives: Fluorescence spectroscopy which can be used for optical tissue diagnosis of tumor pathology deserves special interest. The purpose of the work was to study blood plasma and tumor tissue of men with different forms of prostate tumors by using laser induced fluorescence. Blood plasma and tumor tissue of the patients with benign hyperplasia of the prostate (BHP), BHP with inflammation, BHP with high grade PIN (BHP with HGPIN) and adenocarcinoma of prostate (CaP) have been studied. Results: In case of blood plasma fluorescence, intensity of the plasma proteins corresponding peak (340 - 360 nm) was increasing in the following manner: control group → BHP → BHP with HGPIN → CaP. The intensity of the nicotinamide coenzymes correspond peak (440 - 460 nm) was increased in case of BHP with HGPIN and CaP patients, but decreased in case of BHP, compared to control. In case of tumor tissue, the changes of the collagen peak (390 - 400 nm) intensity have been revealed in all cases of prostate tumor tissues. These alterations point to altered collagen biosynthesis levels in different tumor tissues, that reflects the structural changes and characteristics of malignant transformation. Also the changes of the nicotinamide coenzymes peak (440 - 460 nm) intensity in all spectra of tumor tissues were observed. The highest intensity of the peak was observed in the spectra of BHP with HGPIN and in prostate cancer tissue. Conclusions: Alterations of the coenzymes peak intensities perfectly reflect and are in accordance with the specific energy metabolism of prostate epithelial cells. Normalization of fluorescent spectra from different forms of prostate tumor tissues has shown that, each form has typical spectral shape and ratio of fluorescence peaks intensities.
Regular Elements of the Complete Semigroups BX(D) of Binary Relations of the Class ∑2(X,8)  [PDF]

Applied Mathematics (AM) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/am.2015.63042
Abstract: As we know if D is a complete X-semilattice of unions then semigroup Bx(D) possesses a right unit iff D is an XI-semilattice of unions. The investigation of those a-idempotent and regular elements of semigroups Bx(D) requires an investigation of XI-subsemilattices of semilattice D for which V(D,a)=Q2(X,8) . Because the semilattice Q of the class ∑2(X,8) are not always XI -semilattices, there is a need of full description for those idempotent and regular elements when V(D,a)=Q . For the case where X is a finite set we derive formulas by calculating the numbers of such regular elements and right units for which V(D,a)=Q .
Wet lungs, broken hearts and difficult therapies after subarachnoid hemorrhage

Critical Care , 2010, DOI: 10.1186/cc8936
Abstract: An acute catecholamine discharge immediately following intracranial bleeding can have devastating extracranial effects: the heart, lungs, fluids and electrolytes can be severely affected. Hoff and colleagues report on pulmonary edema (PE) following subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) [1]. They found a high incidence of PE, usually several days after the initial bleeding, and an association of PE with lower intra vascular volumes (compared with cases without PE). PE is not uncommon after SAH, both as an early complication and as a late complication.Neurogenic PE is an acute event directly linked with an intracranial disaster; as such, it is often diagnosed on admission in cases with severe SAH [2]. PE in the days following SAH has been reported in association with triple-H therapy, which includes hypervolemia and induced arterial hypertension [3]. In different series, the PE incidence varied from 14 to 23% [4,5]. Increasing evidence is accumulating on the myocardial dysfunction that follows SAH, as well as other acute intracranial disasters. Takotsubo syndrome - with typical left ventricular abnormalities (bulging out of the apex of the heart with preserved function of the base, which earned the syndrome its name - a kind of a pot used as octopus trap in Japan), ECG abnormalities and biomarker changes - is a typical example of how much an injured brain can break the heart [6]. Neurogenic in origin, left ventricular failure causes congestion in the pulmonary vasculature and PE in Takotsubo syndrome.What is concerning in the report of Hoff and colleagues is that PE, often labeled in the text as neurogenic PE, has been diagnosed days after the initial bleeding, without concurrent reduction of the cardiac index and in the absence of volume expansion [1]. The clinical implications of these findings, as pointed out by the authors, would be that PE more than 4 days after SAH is not cardiogenic and would not be suitable for treatment with diuretics. It is therefore hard to reconci
The Spaciotemporal Patterns of Georgian Winter Solstice Festivals
Nino Abakelia
Folklore : Electronic Journal of Folklore , 2008,
Abstract: The article focuses on the rituals and ritual symbols of winter solstice festivals in Georgia, which are discussed from a spaciotemporal perspective and which, in their turn, are based on cosmological symbolism. The article aims to show how everyday life changes through ritual into a winter mythicoritual scenario and how the surrounding built environment of a society is being mythologized. How a place of dwelling as a microcosm is opposed to macrocosm; how symbolism conveys further the dialectic of the hierophanies by transforming things or humans into something other than what they appear in the profane experience. The article investigates who are the main characters of the ritual performance. For this purpose, the selection of ritual guests and their symbolic meanings in various rituals are discussed. Also, an attempt has been made to explain what they symbolize. While exploring the rituals from the spatiotemporal perspective, it is possible to distinguish between three kinds of ritual guests: (i) the first-foot, who through ritual embodies the transcendental supernatural powers, which are represented by different saints (predominantly by St Basil, in other cases by St George, and others); (ii) Evangelical “shepherds”; and (iii) the spirits of the dead, who are divided into “visible” spirits of the dead, embodied by a group of disguised mummers, and invisible ancestral spirits of the family. All these ritual guests were unavoidable visitors at winter solstice festivals and were responsible for ensuring the wellbeing and prosperity of the family. By means of the rituals and ritual guests the society communicated with the outer world and guaranteed welfare for the forthcoming New Year.
ACCOUNTING POLICIES AND FINANCIAL ANALYSIS INTERDEPENDENCES - EMPIRICAL EVIDENCE
Nino Serdarevi?
Economic Review : Journal of Economics and Business , 2011,
Abstract: This paper presents empirical evidence on applied analysis interdependences with created accounting policies and estimates within Bosnia and Herzegovina (BIH) private commercial entities, in specific, targeting practice oriented relevance of financial indicators, non-financial indicators, enterprise resource planning and management account-ting insight frequencies. Recently, standard setters (International Accounting Standards Board and International Federation of Accountants) have published outcomes of an internationally organized research on financial reports usefulness, recommending enforced usage of enterprise relevant information, non-financial indicators and risks implications in assets and liabilities positions. These imply litigation and possible income smoothening. In regard to financial reporting reliability, many authors suggest accounting conservatism as a measure to compose risk assessment and earnings response ratio. Author argues that recently suggested financial management measures involving cash and assets management, liquidity ratios and turns do not directly imply accounting information quality, prior computed within applied accounting conservatism.

Abstract: Aim To determine the presence of the pathophysiological forms of cardiac arrest at the beginning and at the end of the reanimation procedures and survival of the patients.Methods This retrospective-descriptive-analytic research involved 41 patients admitted to the Department for urgent and regular admission at the Canton Hospital Zenica during the period 01. September 2008 to 31. May 2009. The data (number of patients before treatment, number of survivors and deaths, ECG forms of the cardiac arrest) were extracted from the Protocols. Chi-square test was used for the comparision of the data and calculate statistical significance at the level of 0.005.Results The most common pathophysiological form of the cardiac arrest at the beginning of the reanimation procedures was asystole (AS), 27 patients (65.9%). Cardiac arrest survived five (12.2%) patients. The most common pathophysiological form of the cardiac arrest, which was registered in the surviving patients immediately before the establishment of the normal cardiac rhythm was ventricular fibrillation (VF), four (80.0%) patients. One (3.7%) patient survived AS, four (66.7%) patients survived VF. Frequency of all forms of cardiac arrest was statistically significantly different (frequency of AS and EMD was higher and VT and VF was lower) in this study, then the expected frequency (p>0.005).Conclusion Ther is need for the improve of the efficiency of pre-hospital treatment by improving the cooperation with institutions that provide training in first aid (Red Cross).
