RaneloviTijana,Jokovi? Jugoslav,Milovanovi? Bratislav
Serbian Journal of Electrical Engineering , 2005, DOI: 10.2298/sjee0502137r
Abstract: In this paper, a real microwave applicator with a wave guide used to launch the energy from the source into the cavity is analyzed using 3D TLM method. In order to investigate the influence of the positions and number of feed wave guides to the number of the resonant modes inside the cavity, obtained results are compared with analytical results and results obtained by using TLM software with an impulse excitation as well. TLM method is applied to the both empty and loaded rectangular metallic cavity, and a very good agreement between simulated and experimental results is achieved.

Economic Annals , 2008, DOI: 10.2298/eka0879183r
Abstract: Contemporary tax theory and practice provides two fundamental concepts for taxation of personal income: scheduler and global. Several systems have been derived from these basic models, including combined, flat, dual and negative income tax. Dual income tax, the subject of this paper, requires progressive taxation of income from employment and proportional taxation of income from capital. However, strict application of this system significantly violates the principle of equitability of taxation, both horizontally and vertically.

Archives of Biological Sciences , 2011, DOI: 10.2298/abs1104157z
Abstract: The study’s aim is the comparative chorologic and ecological analysis of the vascular flora of the two gorges of the P inja River in Serbia and Macedonia which are 27 km apart. In the two gorges 1564 taxa have been recorded, 1057 being in the upper gorge in Serbia and 1174 in the lower gorge in Macedonia. Common to both gorges are 666 taxa. Chorological spectra show that in both gorges the most abundant are Mediterranean-submediterranean plants, 32.85% being in the upper and 43.97% in the lower gorge. Differences in the studied vegetation result from a diverse participation of other floristic elements such as Central European ones that are more abundant in the upper gorge (17.05%) than in the lower gorge (10.86 %). The life-form spectrum reveals that the flora in both gorges is hemicryptophyte-therophyte in character. Both gorges belong to an enclave of a Mediterranean-submediterranean region, i.e. to its submediterranean Macedonian- Thracian province.
Addressing inequality and poverty with tax instruments
Ranelovi? Sa?a,?arkovi?-Raki? Jelena
Economic Annals , 2011, DOI: 10.2298/eka1190007r
Abstract: There is a consensus, in both academia and economic policy circles, that the reform of the personal income tax system in Serbia is necessary one. Two frequently discussed reform scenarios are East European style flat tax and the comprehensive income tax model of Western Europe. Most Central and Eastern European (CEE) countries have recently reformed their income tax systems by introducing some form of flat tax scheme, while in numerous countries of Western Europe the possibility of flat tax reform is also seriously considered. Opponents of the reform usually stress the adverse distributional effects of flat tax schemes. The aim of our paper is to contribute to the empirical literature on the distributional effects of alternative tax reform scenarios. The analysis is based on the tax and benefit micro-simulation model for Serbia (SRMOD). The results suggest that redesigning the existing income tax system so as to introduce a uniform tax rate and increase the basic allowance would somewhat reduce inequality and improve vertical inequity in taxation. On the other hand, in the case of the introduction of comprehensive income tax, considerably larger equalizing and progressivity effects would be achieved. At the same time, since in both cases redistribution will not affect the bottom decile group, no significant effects (in either cases) on poverty reduction will be achieved.

Abstract: Introduction. Hydatidosis is a human disease caused by the larval form of Echinococcus granulosus. All organs in the human body may be affected by hydatid disease, but excluding liver and lungs, all other organs are considered as uncommon locations. Hydatid disease located in the psoas muscle is uncommon. Case Outline. The authors present a 36-year-old male living in endemic areas of Serbia, admitted due to pain and weakness of the right thigh and weight loss. Duration of symptoms was one year. CT and MRI revealed a big cystic mass (20 cm long) in the right psoas muscle. Neurological investigation showed a loss of function of the right femoral nerve. Serology for Echinococcosis was negative. Surgery was indicated and performed by median laparotomy. Total excision of the cyst was done. Pathohystology confirmed the nature of the cyst. Three years after operation the patient was without any signs of disease relapse. Conclusion. Echinococcal disease of the psoas has been very rarely reported, sometimes associated with paraspinal disease and often with vertebral involvement. Cystic or complex retroperitoneal tumour, pyogenic abscess of the psoas and even tuberculosis should be considered in the differential diagnosis. Treatment of choice is surgery. The greatest danger for the patient is dissemination and anaphylactic reaction. Also, compression of adjacent organs may produce significant morbidity.

Abstract: Type and technique of anesthesia have an important effect on per operative surgical course. The aim of the study was prospective analyses of advantages of combined spinal, epidural and general anesthesia (CSEGA) versus general anesthesia (GA) in abdominal surgery according to: 1. operative course (haemodynamic stability of patients, quality of analgesia, undesirables effects), 2. postoperative course (quality of analgesia, unfavorable effects, temporary abode of patients in intensive care). Using prospective randomized double blind controlled study, we evaluated two groups of patients whom the same type of abdominal surgical intervention was planed and the only difference was the type of technique of anesthesia. First group of patients (n=34), was treated with CSEGA and second group of patients (n=33), was treated only with standard (GA). Both groups had intraoperative and 24-hour-long postoperative continued monitoring of blood pressure central venous pressure, and dieresis. In the 24 hours postoperative period the following parameters were analyzed: vigilance conditions, motor block level, pain intensity in rest and movement, necessity for a complementary analgesia, side effects and final subjective effect of analgesia. There was important difference in waking up the patients after a general anesthesia in the first group this period was shorter. In the first 24 hours, patients from the first group didn't get any systemic analgesic, while the patients from the second group needed fractionary application of parenteral analgesics in the period of 4-6 hours. Patients from the first group were also physically faster and easier recovered and they had less respiratory complications and there was not any example of thromboembolysm and the intestine motility was faster re-established. First group of patients spent less time in intensive care (three days) than second group (six days). Final subjective effect of analgesia, according to verbal descriptive scale (VDS) of pain was satisfying with 75% of patients of the first group and 15% of patients of the second group. According to results investigation advantages of CSEDGA versus GA in abdominal surgery manifold: better hemodynamic stability and perfusion of operative region, decrease of single doses of opioid analgesics, local and general anesthetics followed by the decrease of their side effects, better intensity and longer duration of analgesia, improved total functional capability of patients.

Abstract: Introduction. Still there is no consensus on the choice of the most efficient and the least toxic chemotherapy regimen in the treatment of advanced gastric cancer. Nowadays few therapy protocols are available for treating this disease. Objective. Study was conducted to compare the efficacy and toxicity of FAM (flurouracil, doxorubicin, mitomycin C) with CDDP and FU/FA (cisplatin, 5-fluorouracil, leucovorin) protocols in patients with locally advanced and metastatic gastric cancer. Methods. This randomized study involved a group of 50 patients with locally advanced or metastatic gastric cancer, who had not previously undergone chemotherapy treatment. Progression free survival, overall survival and drug toxicity were evaluated. For statistical analysis chi-square test, Kaplan-Meier curve and the log rank test were used. Results. The overall response rate was 20% in the group treated with FAM and 24% in the group treated with CDDP, FU/FA (4% of patients from each group had complete response), but without significant statistical difference. Median survival was 10.9 months in the FAM group and 11.8 months in CDDP, FU/FA group, with no statistically significant difference. Non-haematological and haematological toxicities of CDDP, FU/FA were considerably less frequent than of FAM, and there was no treatment related deaths in any of the groups. Conclusion. Both investigated regimens demonstrated moderate efficacy. The study shows in favour of justified application of both protocols, while in regard to toxicity CDDP and FU/FA can be recommended as preferable treatment for locally advanced and metastatic gastric cancer. New strategies should be considered for better efficacy in the treatment of advanced gastric cancer. New strategies are necessary with the goal to achieve a better therapeutic effect.

Abstract: Granular cell tumors (GCT) are rare benign tumors. Less than 1% of GCTs involve the extrahepatic biliary tree. Most researches favor a Schwann cell origin. Patient, caucasion, female, 31 year old presented with 4 month history of painless jaundice and pruritus. US and CT revealed dilatation of intrahepatic biliary tree and surgery was performed. Firm tumor mass was found above the conjunction of cystic duct and common hepatic duct (CHD) that caused obstruction and gallblader empyema. The patient underwent radical surgical procedure because Klatskin tumor was clinically suspected. Patohystology and immunohistochemistry confirmed granular cell tumor. Eight years after surgery the patient is wellbeing without symptoms. To our knowledge 69 cases of GCT of the extrahepatic biliary tree have been reported and none of the acute acalculous cholecystitis case accompanied by GCT of CHD. Granular cell tumors are rarely diagnosed preoperatively. Wide resection offers the best chance for cure.

Medicinski Pregled , 2008, DOI: 10.2298/mpns0806263s
Abstract: Introduction According to the results of different investigations, the opinion that isolate of coagulase-negative staphylococci by bloodcultures represents the blood infection in 10-12% patient. The aim of the work was to determine the number of patients with blood infection-sepsa induced coagulase-negative staphylococci isolated by bloodcultures. Material and methods: The research was done at the Institute for Public Health in Ni . The basic group consisted of 56 patients and coagulase-negative staphylococci were segregated form their bloodcultures. The growth of microorganisms was monitored by the computerized apparatus 'Bactec 9120'. Coagulase-negative staphylococci were identified by the standard microbiologic method and Vitec AMS system. Results Eight patients (14.28%) were found to have minimum two signs of blood infection. S. epidermis was isolated in four patients. S. saprophyticus was isolated in the patients on hemodialysis with implanted urinary catheter. S. capitis was isolated in the patients with infarctus miocardi. S. auricularis was isolated in child who was administered the immunosuppressive therapy before and during hospitalization due to an acute asthmatic attack. The isolate of S. simulans was cultivated from samples of the patients hospitalized due to the febrile state. Discussion A correct interpretation of coagulase-negative staphylococci findings in bloodcultures is an overriding part of medical treatment. The best laboratory indicators of the presence of coagulase-negative staphylococci in blood would be to segregate those of the same kind from two samples at the same time but from different anatomic sites in the presence of clinical signs of blood infection. Conclusion In the investigation conducted at the Public Health Institute-Nis, we determined that bloodcultures isolated coagulase-negative staphylococci represent the blood infection on 14.28% patient.

Abstract: Background/Aim. Mammary phyllodes tumors (MPT) are uncommon fibroepithelial (biphasic) neoplasms whose clinical behavior is difficult to predict on the basis of histological criteria only. They are divided into benign, borderline malignant and malignant groups. Sometimes it appears difficult to distinguish these tumors from other types of soft tissue sarcomas. Because of the relatively scant data on the role of biological markers in MPT histogenesis, we have decided to undertake the following study, trying to shed more light on the issue by investigating the following elements that make up MPT: their histological patterns, biological behavior, enzymohistochemical, histochemical and immunohistochemical characteristics (ICH) together with the mast cell analysis. Methods. We examined the biopsy material of 35 MPT in our laboratory. Enzymohistochemistry was performed on frozen sections (method of Crowford, Nachlas and Seligman). The used methods were classical hematoxylin-eosin (H&E); histochemical Massontrichrome, Alcian-blue, Periodic acid Schiff and immunohistochemical LSAB2 method (DacoCytomation). Ki-67, ckit, vimentin, estrogen receptor (ER), progesterone receptor (PR) and Her-2 oncoprotein immunohistochemistry was performed on all tumors. Results. The patients were ranged per age from 30-62 years (mean 43.3 years, median 39 years). A total of 35 cases of MPT were included: 20 benign (57%), 6 borderline malignant (17%) and 9 malignant (26%). Twenty-two patients (62.8 %) underwent segmental mastectomy, while 13 (37.2%) had total mastectomies. Twenty-eight patients had negative surgical margins at original resection. The mean size of malignant MPT (7.8 cm) was larger than that of benign MPT (4.5 cm). Significant features of the malignant MPT were: stromal cellularity, stromal cellular atypism, high mitotic activity, atypic mitoses, stromal overgrowth, infiltrative tumor contour and heterologous stromal elements. Benign MPT showed strong enzymohistochemical Leucine Amino Peptidase (LAP) activity in both epithelial and stromal components while it was weak or absent in the epithelial parts of the malignant tumors. Acid mucopolysacharides were present in the stromal component of all types of these tumors. Benign MPT had a lower Ki-67 than did borderline malignant MPT (4 versus 28). Malignant MPT had a greater than 8-fold higher Ki-67 activity than did benign tumors (35 versus 4). Intracytoplasmatic c-kit expression was associated with a pathological diagnosis of malignant MPT, correlating with increasing grade (p < 0.05). In hypercellular stroma of borderli
