Abstract: Introduction. The reason for extremely high incidence of sexually transmitted infections is the lack of necessary knowledge about the mode of transmission and protection measures. The aim of this study was to determine the level of knowledge about sexually transmitted infections in the population of female students of the University of Novi Sad. Material and methods. The study included 397 female students at the University of Novi Sad from different faculties. A questionnaire was designed for the purpose of this research. Results and discussion. Students from all faculties (55.7-66.7%), with the exception of the medical students, believe that the use of condoms is the safest way of protection from sexually transmitted infections. The medical students showed a different attitude and opinion on the use of condoms and avoidance of multiple sexual partners, which are important measures in the prevention of these diseases (38. 8%). The fact that some sexually transmitted infections caused by viruses are associated with the malignancy of the cervix was recognized by 74.81% of students. The fact that the main therapeutic approach for treatment of sexually transmitted diseases is the simultaneous treatment of both partners was known by 81.86% of female students. As it is known, sexually transmitted infections may not always be symptomatic, which is an opinion held by 73.55% of students. Conclusion. Results obtained in this study indicate the need for implementation of educational activities about sexually transmitted infections, which would enable the preservation and promotion of reproductive health of young people.

Abstract: Strengthening competition, short product life cycles and technological development of information technology (IT) has changed the ways companies operate. Radio frequency identification technology (RFID) is one of the technologies whose use is being rapidly tested in many fields. At the beginning of this century, the leading retail companies, in cooperation with their suppliers, began the testing of RFID systems application in supply chains. An important component of these studies, besides the effects achieved in the supply chains, is determining the required investments. The approach for the feasibility assessment of investments in RFID systems from the aspect of logistics is presented in this paper, and the results obtained for a realistic two-stage supply chain are given as an example.

Vojnosanitetski Pregled , 2005, DOI: 10.2298/vsp0502119m
Abstract: Aim. To determine if adenoidectomy itself could provide spontaneous relation of the transverse growth of jaws as well as an adequate mode of breathing or if there is a need for an additional orthodontic treatment to solve the problem. Methods. The study included one hundred and one patients aged 6-17 yrs., divided into three groups: group K - patients with oral respiration caused by adenoidal enlargement; group 1 - patients with adenoidectomy done 5 or more years before; group 2 - patients with orthodontic treatment done immediately after adenoidectomy. Transverse occlusion relation, the frequency of crossbite, and the intensity of nasal respiration were measured in all three groups of patients. Results. The obtained results have shown that in the patients with adenoidal enlargement and oral respiration, there was an evidence of maxillary width reduction as opposed to mandibular width. Of the patients, 14% were with unilateral or bilateral crossbite. In the patients with adenoidectomy done 5 or more years before, transverse maxillary growth compared to mandibular one in the region of the front width, showed statistically significant increase (p < 0.05) as opposed to the patients with adenoidal enlargement. The effect of adenoidectomy on transverse maxillary growth was not satisfactory anyway, which was also indicated by the increase of frequency of crossbite in 24% of the patients with adenoidectomy done 5 or more years before. In operated on and in the patients one month after orthodontic treatment, transverse maxillary growth compared to mandibular growth in all the regions of both front and back width, there was statistically highly significant increase (p < 0.01) as opposed to the patients with adenoidal enlargement and adenoidectomy done many years before. Significant maxillary and mandibular transverse relation was obtained without the presence of crossbite. Nasal respiration prevailed. Conclusion. Orthodontic therapy one month after adenoidectomy was necessary for solving the orthodontic problems caused by adenoidal enlargement and significantly contributed to the rehabilitation of nasal respiration.

Abstract: Cost reduction is among the main quoted reasons for logistics outsourcing, while transport capacities and operations are among the most outsourced logistics areas. However, according to transaction costs theory, there is often room for transport insourcing. Furthermore, nowadays many authors stress that mixed solutions can give better results than “make” or “buy” alternatives. “Make or buy” decision-making normative models, methods, and procedures in transport planning are not much explored. Instead, research is rather focused on carrier selection techniques, whereby it is supposed that outsourcing transport capacities is the most suitable solution. The purpose of this paper is to contribute to the body of literature on classical “makeor-buy” decision-making in transport fleet sizing in a non-logistics enterprise. It goes beyond the basic “make or buy” decisionmaking, and intermediate solutions (i.e., “make and buy”) are explored. Practical directions are given according to theoretical principles, and a case study is used to exemplify the main deductions. The research also has practical implications. Many enterprises in transition economies have faced the question of what to do with their in-house transport fleets. The obtained results are of interest to merchants and manufacturing enterprises that already have a private transport fleet and are considering how to rationalize it.

Abstract: The authors present a case of a 20-year old student from Belgrade, who was admitted to the Institute of Infectious Diseases with fever, muscle and spine pains, strong headacke and malice. During the clinical examination bilateral sacroileitis was found. Serological analyses confirmed brucellosis. Epidemiological data showed that she lived in Kosovo and Metohia in 1997, where she consumed diary products from domestic animals this might be the reason of the acquired infection. With appropriate antibiotic therapy (aminoglycoside, doxicyclin, rifampicin), symptomatic therapy and rehabilitation the disease had favorable outcome; there was no recidive. The authors point out the importance of specific microbiological examinations of patients with fever of unknown origin, especially if the patient has the symptoms that are compatible with brucellosis. In our case it was sacroileitis, as a characteristic complication. As brucellosis is endemic in some parts of our country, there is always a possibility of brucellosis in general medical practice.

Abstract: In the period from 1974 to 1994 there were 78 patients suffering from the AIM of the Romanies' population of the city of Ni hospitalized and treated. The average annual rate of incidence was 136,2 of the sick per 100.000 citizens older than 30 years. There were 56 or 71,8% of men and 22 or 28,2% of women. The absolute ratio was 2,5:1 for men. The general incidence rate for male sex was 222,7 of the sick and for women it was 72,4 of the sick per 100.000 citizens of the same sex. The incidence rates regarding age showed a high degree of correlation with the age of the sick. In all the age groups the incidence rates regarding sex and age are dominant among men. The average age of men was 54,5 (SD=11,0) years while of women it was 59,1 (SD= 10,7) years and with no significant difference in age (p>0,05). The average age of the Romanies' population of both the sexes was considerably less than the average age of the city population of Nis (p<0,05).

Abstract: Transvaginal Doppler ultrasonography has an important role in detecting and confirming the gestational trophoblastic disease (GTD). It can also be helpful in early detection of the malignant cases of GTD such as the invasion and protrusion of trophoblastic tissue into the uterine wall. Ultrasonographic picture of the malignant GTD is also specific for the presence of prominent zones of vasculavization in the peritrophoblastic tissue, as well as in the uterine tissue in which malignant GTD is developed. Resistance Index (RI) values were measured at the level of blood vessels of peritrophoblastic tissue and of suspected zones in the uterine tissue to detect neovascularization, which followed the malignant process. Theca luteal cysts were often detected by Transvaginal Doppler ultrasonography.

Abstract: Introduction. Infectious diseases caused by Streptococcus pyogenes, a member of the group A Streptococci (GAS) are among the most common life threatening ones. Patients with GAS infections have a poor survival rate. Cellulitis is a severe invasive GAS infection and the most common clinical presentation of the disease associated with more deaths than it can be seen in other GAS infections. According to the literature data, most cases of GAS toxic shock syndrome are developed in the puerperium. However, there are two main problems with GAS infection in early puerperium and this case report is aimed at reminding on them. The first problem is an absence of awareness that it can be postpartal invasive GAS infection before the microbiology laboratory confirms it, and the second one is that we have little knowledge about GAS infection, in general. Case report. A 32- year-old healthy woman, gravida 1, para 1, was hospitalized three days after vaginal delivery with a 38-hour history of fever, pain in the left leg (under the knee), and head injury after short period of conscious lost. Clinical picture of GAS infection was cellulites. Group A Streptoccocus pyogenes was isolated in vaginal culture. Rapid antibiotic and supportive treatment stopped development of streptococcal toxic shock syndrome (STSS) and potential multiorganic failure. Signs and symptoms of the infection lasted 25 days, and complete recovery of the patient almost 50 days. Conclusion. In all women in childbed with a history of fever early after delivery, vaginal and cervical culture specimens should be taken as soon as possible. Early recognition of GAS infection in early puerperium and prompt initiation of antimicrobial drug and supportive therapy can prevent development of STSS and lethal outcome.
