Open Journal of Endocrine and Metabolic Diseases (OJEMD) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ojemd.2017.75012
Abstract: Objective: After the Ramadan fasting period, there is an increasing prevalence of diabetes in Cote d’Ivoire, in diabetes care centers. The objective of this study was to assess the consumption of sugary foods during this period and to determine the risks of diabetes in Muslim populations. Methods: Information was collected on the type and amount of sugary foods consumed. Methods for the preparation of these foods have been determined. Intake frequencies and postprandial glycemic responses were studied. The usual statistical methods were used. Results: Between 70% and 85% of the “fasters” consume plenty of these sugary foods during this period, with an average added sugar level varying between 10% and 35% and a daily consumption of between 250 cl and 0.5 l. The added sugar leads to hyperglycemia in both healthy subjects and pre diabetics. Conclusion: Regular consumption of these sugary foods results in significant hyperglycaemia throughout the month of fasting with a significantly higher blood glucose level in pre diabetic subjects. This makes pre diabetics people more at risk of diabetes among Muslim populations during Ramadan fasting.

Advances in Sexual Medicine (ASM) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/asm.2017.74013
Abstract: Introduction: Early puberty is defined by development of secondary sexual characteristics before the age of 8 years in girls and 9 years in boys. In the West, one in five children out of 100,000 is concerned. Little information on sub-Saharan African patients exists concerning this pathology. Objective: To determine the etiology and clinical characteristics of early puberty in a cohort of Ivorian children. Methods: We conducted a cross-sectional study between 2015 and 2017 in children admitted to early puberty in the unique Endocrinology Service of the country. The epidemiology and clinical characteristics were assessed. Results: The eight patients involved were all females. Their mean age at diagnosis was 7 years and 3 months and the mean age of first symptoms begun at 5 years and 6 months. Seven patients had a central precocious puberty (CPP) including five cases of idiopathic CPP (ICPP) treated by (GnRH agonist) and two cases with secondary precocious puberty (SPP). One of them has a hypothalamic hamartoma and the other a sequelae of encephalopathy. The last case had a peripheral precocious puberty (PPP) causes by ovarian dystrophy. Conclusion: Our results confirm the predominance of idiopathic central precocious puberty particularly in girls.

Pakistan Journal of Nutrition , 2009,
Abstract: The aim of the study was to evaluate the impact of variety and cooking method on glycemic index of yams consumed in Cote d’Ivoire. On different occasions, human volunteers consumed 50 g of available carbohydrate in yams varieties cooked either in boiled water or in a conventional oven after 10-12 h overnight fast. The glycemic index values were calculated after measured venous-blood glucose before and after ingestion at 0, 15, 30, 45, 60, 90 and 120 min. The GI results showed that in each variety of yams, the glycemic index does not vary whatever the cooking method. But, considering the yam specie, the glycemic index values varied significantly depending on the variety and cooking method used. The comparison of glycemic index of yams varieties showed differences of clinical importance and could form a basis for dietary advice to diabetic subjects.
Possibilities of utilization of fly ash from the black coal Power Engineering of the U. S. Steel Ko ice
Vladimír Jacko,Franti?ka Michalíková
Acta Montanistica Slovaca , 2005,
Abstract: The paper presents modes of a direct utilization of the fly ash by-product of the combustion of black power coal in the slag - bottom boilers of the Division Plant Power Engineering ( DP PE ) of the U. S. Steel Ko ice ( next USSK ). The properties of fly ash limit its use in metallurgy and foundry industry. The fly ash is directly utilizable in the metallurgical industry as a component of powder cover mixtures and insulation inserts, heat insulation parts and exothermical mixtures. The most important components in the mixtures are light micro spheres – cenospheres and heavy micro spheres – plerospheres. The micro spheres significantly improve properties of the powder cover mixtures.
SOME CONCLUSIONS DRAWN FROM THE 1:50 000 SCALE GEOLOGICAL MAP OF THE BRANISKO AND IERNA HORA REGION

Acta Montanistica Slovaca , 1997,
Abstract: Significant knowledges about litostratigraphical, structural and tectonometamorphic development of the Branisko- ierna hora region have been abtained during creation of geological map of the region at the scale of 1:50 000. Some of them affecting general opinions about the Variscan and Alpine development of the Western Carpathian Internides are discussed in this contribution.
POLYSTAGE DEVELOPMENT OF NW-SE FAULTS AT THE EASTERN MARGIN OF THE WESTERN CARPATHIAN INTERNIDES
Jacko Stanislav
Acta Montanistica Slovaca , 1997,
Abstract: NW-SE faults has plaged a decisive role in the Alpine development of the eastern margin of the Wes-tern Carpathian Internides. Both the space position of rock sequences and morphostructural pattern of the Gemeric and Veporic units of the area are principally controlled by their network. One of the essential Western Carpathian discontinuities of the region - the Margecany shear zone, i.e. the boundary between the Gemeric and Veporic units belongs to this fault set. Three following activity stages have been recognized within the Alpine development of the NW-SE faults: (i) - the Cretaceous stage, (ii) - the Neogene stage, (iii) - the Quarternary stage. Within the Cretaceous stage two development phases of the fault set activity has been verified. The Early Cretaceous - the compressional semi-ductile one, is connected with overall the north-vergent crustal reduction of the Western Carpathian Internides. The Late Cretaceous - the extensional stage exemplified by a postkinematic recrystalization of the previous tectonites is bound to the ongoing upheaval of the Western Car-pathian Veporic dome. The Neogene fault set activity iniciated likely by the eastern escape of the Western Carpathians is ma-inly typical by strike - slip motion of reactivated and/or newly created NW-SE fault structures. The Quarternary - up to the recent activity of the faults includes predominantly vertical motions.
Significant geological localities of the èierna Hora veporic unit
Jacko Stanislav
Acta Montanistica Slovaca , 1996,
Abstract: Basic information about outstanding geological localities of the èierna Hora Mts. (i.e. the Veporic domain of the Central Western Carpathians) are presented in this contribution. At the first locality, nearby Margecany village, the Margecany shear zone, i.e. the tectonic contact of the Gemeric and Veporic unit, is observable. At the second one, situated northwards from the Ko ické Hámre bridge, a nearly complete cross-section of cover formations of the èierna hora basement is outcropped. Infolding of cover stratas into basement metamorphites and sucessive imbrication of both mentioned formations are instructively developed at the third locality, the Ru ín dam area.
Mineral processing technologies used to obtain valuable components of the solid wastes from coal combustion in power plants
Franti?ka Michalíková,Vladimír Jacko,Martin Sisol,Ivana Kozáková
Acta Montanistica Slovaca , 2005,
Abstract: This paper presents mineral processing technologies used to achieve components from solid wastes of coal combusted in power plants. By combusting bituminous coal in smelting boilers, mineral novelties are formed which are separable by suitable mineral processing technologies. The separation of unburned coal residues is realized by flotation, using nonionic flotation agents such as Flotalex MR, Flotalex bio, Flotakol NX and others. The Fe component created by the mineral novelty of magnetite is obtained by wet and dry low-intensity magnetic separation. Optimal results were accomplished by the flotation process in which we obtained residues of unburned coal. The waste from the flotation was consequently separated by the wet low-intensity separation. The waste from the flotation and magnetic separation - subtilized fly ash, contained 0 – 2,5% LOI which can be used in architecture.
Thermal power sludge – properties, treatment, utilization
Franti?ka Michalíková,Vladimír Jacko,Martin Sisol,?ubica Kozáková
Acta Montanistica Slovaca , 2005,
Abstract: In this paper a knowledge about properties of thermal power sludge from coal combustion in smelting boilers is presented. The physical and technological properties of slag – granularity, density, specific, volume and pouring weight, hardness and decoupling – together with chemical properties influence its exploitation. The possibility of concentrating the Fe component by the mineral processing technologies (wet low-intenzity magnetic separation) is verified. An industrial use of the slag in civil engineering, e.g. road construction, was realised. The slag-fly ashes are directly utilized in the cement production as a substitute of a part of natural raw materials. For the use of slag as the stoneware in the road construction, all the criteria are fulfilled.
OUTLINE OF STRUCTURE OF MESOSOIC SEQUENCES OF THE HUMENSKé VRCHY MTS
Jacko Stanislav yun.
Acta Montanistica Slovaca , 1997,
Abstract: WNW - ESE horst of Mesozoic sequences of the Humenské vrchy Mts. forms NE margin of the East-ern Slovakian basin filled by Neogene vulcanosedimentary formations. They consist of Middle Triassic (Ani-sian) to Middle Cretaceous (Lower Cenomanian formations) belonging to Kri na superficial nappe unit of the Western Carpathians. Structurally the sequence is composed of four directional sheets (i.e. Jasenovská, Klako- iny, Kocovo, and H rka sheet) dipping to N - NNE. The sheet structure has been formed during Miocene back-ward thrust of the Paleogene flysch formations. Other dislocations of the same and N - S direction are of younger age. They are bound to final formation of Eastern Slovakian basin and they segment the horst to individual elevation and normal fault blocks.
