Simoncig-Netjasov Aleksandra,Vujovi? Svetlana,Ivovi? Miomira,Tan?i?-Gaji? Milina
Srpski Arhiv za Celokupno Lekarstvo , 2008, DOI: 10.2298/sarh0810505s
Abstract: INTRODUCTION Menopause induces redistribution of fat mass and development of abdominal obesity, increasing risk for metabolic syndrome (MS) by 60%. Related cardiovascular diseases become a leading cause of morbidity and mortality in women after fifty years of age. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of gaining weight on components of MS in the menopause. METHOD The study included 50 obese women, BMI=31.92± 5.83 kg/m2, age 54.40±3.64, time since menopause 5.90±5.46 years, and 37 normal weight women, BMI=23.50±2.13 kg/m2, age 53.92±3.95, time since menopause 5.96±4.92 years. Both groups were divided according to the presence of MS into two subgroups. Anthropometric characteristics and blood pressure were measured. Blood was taken at 8 am for the following: fasting glucose, triglycerides, cholesterol, HDL, LDL, apolipoprotein A (ApoA), apolipoprotein B (ApoB), lipoprotein(a) (Lp(a)), C-reactive protein (CRP), fibrinogen, FSH, LH, prolactin, oestrogen, progesterone, testosterone and sex hormonebinding globulin (SHBG). RESULTS 66% of obese women had MS compared with 22% normal weight women. Significant differences between groups were found for the following: weight, BMI, waist, hip circumference, waist/hip ratio, diastolic blood pressure, Lp(a), FSH, LH, prolactin (all p<0.01) and fasting glucose (p<0.05). Obese women with and without MS were significantly diverse for the following: waist/hip ratio, systolic blood pressure and fasting glucose (all p<0.01); age, BMI, waist circumference, triglycerides, HDL, Lp(a) and SHBG (all p<0.05). Normal weight women with and without MS had significantly different values of waist/hip ratio, systolic, diastolic blood pressure, triglycerides (all p<0.01); HDL and testosterone (p<0.05). Significant differences were found between obese and normal weight women with MS in anthropometric characteristics, ApoA, Lp(a), fibrinogen (all p<0.01) and FSH (p<0.05). CONCLUSION Abdominal obesity significantly increases incidence of MS as a cluster of cardiovascular risk factors in the menopause.

Srpski Arhiv za Celokupno Lekarstvo , 2013, DOI: 10.2298/sarh1302041s
Abstract: Introduction. Menopause leads to the development of central adiposity, a more atherogenic lipid profile and increased incidence of metabolic syndrome independent of age and other factors. Objective. The aim of the study was to investigate the relationships between anthropometric characteristics, sex hormones, lipids and fasting glucose in menopausal women. Methods. The study included 87 menopausal women, who where divided into groups according to two criteria: BMI≥26.7 kg/m2 and BMI≥25 kg/m2. Anthropometric characteristics and blood pressure were measured. Blood was taken at 08.00 h for fasting glucose, triglycerides, cholesterol, HDL, LDL, apolipoprotein A, apolipoprotein B, lipoprotein(a) (Lp(a)), C-reactive protein, fibrinogen, follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), luteinizing hormone (LH), prolactin (PRL), estradiol, progesterone, testosterone and sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG). Results. Significant differences between groups were found for weight, BMI, waist, hips circumference, waist/hip ratio (WHR), systolic and diastolic blood pressure, Lp(a), FSH, LH, PRL (for systolic blood pressure p<0.05, for the rest p<0.01) and fasting glucose (p<0.05). In obese and overweight women with BMI≥26.7kg/m2 significant negative correlations were found for FSH and glucose, SHBG and LDL, SHBG and total cholesterol, SHBG and glucose, BMI and HDL, WC and HDL. In obese and overweight women with BMI≥25kg/m2 significant negative correlations were found for BMI and HDL, waist circumference (WC) and HDL, WHR and HDL, FSH and glucose, SHBG and glucose; significant positive correlations were between BMI and glucose, WC and glucose and WHR with triglycerides. Conclusion. Gaining weight and decreased SHBG are related to dyslipidemia and increased fasting glucose confirming increased incidence of metabolic abnormalities in the menopause.

Simoncig-Netjasov Aleksandra,Vujovi? Svetlana,Ivovi? Miomira,Tan?i?-Gaji? Milina
Medicinski Pregled , 2010, DOI: 10.2298/mpns1002033s
Abstract: Introduction. Hypoestrogenic status in the menopausal women shows a shift to a central android fat distribution and metabolic syndrome (MS). Related metabolic changes and hypertension increase the risk for cardiovascular (CV) diseases. The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of duration of menopause, anthropometric and hormonal parameters on metabolic syndrome. Material and methods. 50 obese women were examined with BMI=31.92±5.83 kg/m2, age 54.40±3.64, time since menopause 5.90±5.46 years. Control group consisted of 37 normal weight women with BMI=23.50±2.13 kg/m2, age 53.92±3.95, time since menopause 5.96±4.92 years. Anthropometric characteristics and blood pressure were measured. Blood was taken at 8 am for: fasting glucose, triglycerides, cholesterol, HDL, LDL, apolipoprotein A (ApoA), apolipoprotein B (ApoB), lipoprotein(a) (Lp(a)), C-reactive protein (CRP), fibrinogen, FSH, LH, prolactin, estradiol, progesterone, testosterone and sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG). Results. In obese women significant negative correlations were found for: BMI and HDL (p<0,05), waist and HDL (p<0,05), FSH and systolic blood pressure (p<0.01), FSH and fasting glucose (p<0,05), LH and waist (p<0.05), SHBG and fasting glucose (p<0.05). A positive correlation was found for lime since meno-pause and waist/hip ratio (p<0.05). In controls positive correlations were found for: waist/hip ratio and systolic and diastolic blood pressure (p<0,05), LH and HDL (p<0.05), estradiol and diastolic blood pressure (p<0,05). Negative correlations were detected for estradiol and waist (p<0,05), time since menopause and HDL (p<0,05). Conclusion. Gaining weight together with menopausal endocrine changes cause metabolic and hemodynamic imbalances, which contribute to risk for cardiovascular diseases.
Charge density wave dynamics from ultrafast XUV ARPES
Petersen J.C.,Kaiser S.,Dean N.,Simoncig A.
EPJ Web of Conferences , 2013, DOI: 10.1051/epjconf/20134103023
Abstract: Ultrafast angle–resolved XUV photoemission reveals the time- and momentum-dependent electronic structure of 1T–TaS2, a hybrid Mott and charge-density-wave insulator. Both electronic orderings melt well before the lattice responds, suggesting that electronic correlations play a role not just in the Mott localization but in the CDW ordering as well.
Patchwork or matrix: Testing the capacity of the contemporary city
Stupar Aleksandra,?uki? Aleksandra
Spatium , 2007, DOI: 10.2298/spat0716001s
Abstract: Being exposed to the multiple needs of their contemporary users, the cities from all over the world have been forced to activate all capacities in order to intensify their land use, adjust their urban structure and reinvent some forgotten segments (ex-industrial areas, traffic nodes, docks, waterfronts) as generators of multilayered transformations and mutations. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is to analyze and compare different approaches of this practice, as well as to emphasize the relation between the applied global imperatives/trends/myths, local conditions and limitations, and the outcomes. Consequently, the first part will be structured around four key-words which often "justify" and activate multifunctional and intensive land use - connectivity, profit, identity and sustainability. The second part will be focused on the case of Serbia, describing a unique postmodern example of the fusion of local and global influences. The multifunctional land use in this case is a result of numerous political and economic problems, the plurality of values and (il)legal transformations of urban structure. This condition has finally affected the rising need for urban redesign, the re-organization and revitalization of city centers, fringe areas, devastated and degraded urban zones, as well as the development of existing transport and communication networks i.e. improvement of urban and regional connectivity. Additionally, the "model of territorial values" will be explained as a planning tool which could be used in order to increase the level of urban attractiveness, define urban parameters and estimate land values. .

Studia Psychologiczne , 2011, DOI: 10.2478/v10167-011-0002-y
Abstract: The aim of this article is to present a theoretical background and psychometric features of Polish adaptation of the Self-Construal Scale (SCS; Singelis, 1994). The scale is composed of two subscales (9 items each) which measure degree of independent and interdependent self-construal. The scale was constructed for the needs of empirical research conducted in order to psychologically characterize individuals with different types of self-construal. The Polish adaptation of SCS has satisfactory reliability (Cronbach's alpha) and construct validity (via exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses and correlations with Relational-Interdependent Self-Construal Scale; RISC; Cross, Bacon & Morris, 2000). Although further research are needed, it may be assumed that this tool can be successfully used in research on regulative meaning of self-construal.

Social aspects of ethnic conflicts in Temerin
Markovi? Aleksandra
Sociologija , 2013, DOI: 10.2298/soc1301069m
Abstract: Ethnic tensions and conflicts in Temerin, a town located close to the capital of Vojvodina, Novi Sad, have attracted the attention of both the Serbian public and the public of Hungarian national minority in Vojvodina. The paper relates ethnic conflicts in Temerin with non-ethnic social dimensions. Generally, the author tests modernisation theory, as an example of developmentalist theory, as well as interactionist and instrumentalist theories of ethnicity. Particularly, the paper provides corroboration test of the ethnic competition hypothesis, posed by Sarah Belanger and Maurice Pinard, which specifies conditions that transform ethnic competition into ethnic conflict. Finally, the study has revealed that material status has no influence on national intolerance. However, at the level of ethnic groups, the issues of public usage of language and positioning in the labour market are related to the ethnic conflicts in Temerin.
Continuous dependence of solutions of elliptic BVPs on parameters
Aleksandra Orpel
Opuscula Mathematica , 2006,
Abstract: The continuous dependence of solutions for a certain class of elliptic PDE on functional parameters is studied in this paper. The main result is as follow: the sequence $\{x_k\}_{k\in N}$ of solutions of the Dirichlet problem discussed here (corresponding to parameters $\{x_k\}_{k\in N}$) converges weakly to $x_0$ (corresponding to $u_0$) in $W^{1,q}_0(\Omega,R)$, provided that $\{x_k\}_{k\in N}$ tends to $u_0$ a.e. in $\Omega$. Our investigation covers both sub and superlinear cases. We apply this result to some optimal control problems.
