Abstract: The impairment of diffusion capacity is a very common functional disorder in patients with liver cirrhosis and portal hypertension. Disproportionately higher reduction of the transfer factor compared to restrictive ventilatory disorder, suggests that diffusion disorder is primarily induced by inadequate pulmonary perfusion. The isolated reduction of the transfer factor cannot be only explained in each case by intrapuimonary vascular dilatation.

Abstract: Pot experiments with different triticale and oats varieties spread in Bulgaria were carried out. Three varieties of triticale (Rakita, TC-210, AD-7291) and three varieties of oats (Obrazcov chifl ik, W-!6 and W-17) were analized. The plants were grown on soil type Dystric planosol /FAO. The soil was contaminated with radionuclide 134Cs. It was established that the radiocesium is unevenly accumulated in the different parts of the plants. The highest 134Cs concentration was found in the leaves and the lowest in the grains. Variety differences of uptake of 134Cs in investigated crops were established. The highest level of accumulation of the radiocesium has been detected in triticale variety Rakita, and in oats variety W-17. It has been determined that the uptake of the radionuclide by plants of the triticale is more intensive then that of by the oats plants.
Permeability as an important parameter for radon risk classification of foundation soils

Annals of Geophysics , 2005, DOI: 10.4401/ag-3192
Abstract: Permeability of soils and rocks for gases is one of the main parameters for final radon risk classification of building sites. For the improvement of the method for radon risk classification it is recommended to complete in situ measurements of permeability and/or results derived from grain size analysis by an expert description of parameters of soils and rocks and their changes in vertical profile.

Abstract: Vegetation pot experiments with spring oats, cultivar Obrazcov Chifl ik – 4, were carried out. The plants were grown on four different soil types, typical for Bulgaria: Haplustoll, Udolls, Ustifl uvents, Albaqualf /USA. The soils were contaminated with the Cs-134. It was concluded that the radio-caesium accumulates unevenly in the different plant organs, as its highest concentration was found in the leaves and lowest in the grains of the researched culture. Substantial differences were discovered in the accumulation of caesium –134 in the plants, depending on the soil differences. According to the accumulation of the radio-caesium in the plants, the different soils can be arranged as follows: Albaqualf > Vdolls >Ustifl uvents > Haplustoll.

Abstract: Background: Dialyzable leukocyte extracts (DLE) are heterogeneous mixtures of peptides less than 10 kDa in size that are used as immunomodulatory adjuvants in immune-mediated diseases. TransferonTM is DLE manufactured by National Polytechnic Institute (IPN), and is registered by Mexican health-regulatory authorities as an immunomodulatory drug and commercialized nationally. The proposed mechanism of action of TransferonTM is induction of a Th1 immunoregulatory response. Despite that it is widely used, to date there are no reports of adverse events related to the clinical safety of human DLE or TransferonTM. Objective: To assess the safety of TransferonTM in a large group of patients exposed to DLE as adjuvant treatment. Methods: We included in this study 3844 patients from our Clinical Immunology Service at the Unit of External Services and Clinical Research (USEIC), IPN. Analysis was performed from January 2014 to November 2014, searching for clinical adverse events in patients with immune-mediated diseases and treated with TransferonTM as an adjuvant. Results: In this work we observed clinical nonserious adverse events (AE) in 1.9% of patients treated with TransferonTM (MD 1.9, IQR 1.7 - 2.0). AE were 2.8 times more frequently observed in female than in male patients. The most common AE were headache in 15.7%, followed by rash in 11.4%, increased disease-related symptomatology in 10%, rhinorrhea in 7.1%, cough in 5.7%, and fatigue in 5.7% of patients with AE. 63% of adverse event presentation occurred from day 1 to day 4 of treatment with Transferon
Effects of the Form Factor and the Force of the Gravity on the Thermal Exchanges by Natural Convection in a Rectangular Cavity Filled with Nanofluid  [PDF]

Abstract: Effects of the form factor on natural convection heat transfer and fluid flow in a two-dimensional cavity filled with Al2O3-nanofluid has been analyzed numerically. A model was developed to explain the behavior of nanofluids taking account of the volume fraction φ. The Navier-Stokes equations are solved numerically by alternating an implicit method (Method ADI) for various Rayleigh numbers varies as 103, 104 and 105. The nanofluid used is aluminum oxide with water Pr = 6.2; solid volume fraction φ is varied as 0%, 5% and 10%. Inclination angle Φ varies from 0° to 90° with a step the 15° and the form report varies as R = 0.25, 0.5, 1 and 4. The problem considered is a two-dimensional heat transfer enclosure. The vertical walls are differentially heated; the right is cold when the left is hot. The horizontal walls are assumed to be insulated. The nanofluid in the cavity is considered as incompressible, Newtonian and laminar flow. The nanoparticles are assumed to have a shape and a uniform size. However, it is supposed that the two fluid phases and nanoparticles are in a state of thermal equilibrium and they sink at the same speed. The thermophysical properties of nanofluids are assumed to be constant at the exception of the variation of density in the force of buoyancy, which is based on the approximation of Boussinesq values.
Evaluation of Uranium Accumulation in Black Spruce Trees

Research Journal of Environmental and Earth Sciences , 2013,
Abstract: This study evaluated the metal accumulation capacity of black spruce seedlings (Picea mariana) with a special focus on uranium and compared uptake from peat and podzol soil treated with various concentrations of uranyl nitrate hexahydrate. Bio-available indices for uranium in the substrates, accumulation factors and transfer factors for translocation of U between different plant organs were estimated. The results showed higher concentration of U in shoots with accumulation factors up to seven times greater than values determined in roots. Uranium accumulation in stems was several orders of magnitude higher than the metal content in roots and needles. Transfer from substrate to the plants was influenced by substrate-specific properties, resulting in higher uptake of U from soil than from peat. The pattern of U accumulation was consistent with that previously reported in field studies. Metal accumulation values also showed linear progression with Bio-available metal concentrations in the substrate suggesting that black spruce trees are best classified as bio-indicators of uranium content in underlying substrates rather than hyper accumulators of the metal.
