Demin Mirjana A.,Vuceli?-RadoviBiljana V.,Banjac Neboj?a R.,Nikolajevna-Tipsina Neli
Hemijska Industrija , 2013, DOI: 10.2298/hemind120314048d
Abstract: The aim of this work was to compare the nutritional characteristics of wheat bread with the bread produced of wheat flour supplemented with quinoa and buckwheat seeds. Bread making properties of these blends were analyzed in order to investigate their ability to make moulded bread. Quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa Will.) and buckwheat seeds were grown in the vicinity of Belgrade, Serbia. The addition of pseudocereal seeds (at levels of 30% and 40%) and a selected technological process, which included hydrothermal preparation of supplements, resulted with a valuable effect on nutritive value of breads. In comparison with the wheat bread that was used as control sample, the protein increase of 2% and the increase of crude fiber content at around 0.5% in 30% supplemented breads were registered. Furthermore, the incorporation of both seeds mixture at the level of 40%, increased the content of protein for 2.5% and fiber content for 0.4%. In regard to the starch, fat, and ash contents there were no major differences. The investigated breads were nutritionally superior to the wheat bread. Chemical composition of the selected seeds was also investigated. The results showed that the blends containing either 30% or 40% of selected seeds expressed high potential for the production of molded breads, as new baking products with enhanced nutritional composition. The applied technological procedure was modified in such way that for all blended combination of supplements it changed rheological properties of dough. Furthermore, it resulted in a good volume of breads with excellent sensory properties of aroma-odor and taste.

Milovanovi? Mirjana,Vuceli?-RadoviBiljana
Journal of Agricultural Sciences , 2008, DOI: 10.2298/jas0803203m
Abstract: Because of the importance of functional food factors for the nutrition of humans and animals, an increasing scientific interest has emerged in health related effects occurring as a consequence of their content in diet. Therefore, in this paper we tried to present the state of the art concerning nutritional aspects as well as health benefits of the most important and widespread ω-3 and ω-6 fatty acids. Furthermore, we reviewed nonfish alternative sources of ω-3 and ω-6 fatty acids as well as their occurrence in domestic oil seeds, rare and medicinal herbs. Recent attempts to incorporate higher levels of ω-3 fatty acids into food and feed are also presented. .
Functional food: Rare herbs, seeds and vegetable oils as sources of flavors and phytosterols
Milovanovi? Mirjana,Banjac Neboj?a,Vuceli?-RadoviBiljana
Journal of Agricultural Sciences , 2009, DOI: 10.2298/jas0901081m
Abstract: Two plant species of the genus Anthriscus (A. sylvestris and A. cerefolium) and Laserpitium latifolium L. are described as a good source of new aroma constituents and phytosterols. These plants are the herbs widely distributed in Serbia and possess significant medicinal value. They are widely applied in traditional medicine, but they are not used as functional food or in food technology. Two well-known domestic aromatic plant species: Mentha piperita L. and Thymus vulgaris L. and the lesser known Alliaria officinalis Andrz. are described as a good sources of highly prized essential oils in several wild-growing herbs. They are traditionally used in cooking. Quinoa seeds considered as multipurpose agro-industrial crop and the seeds may be utilized for human food and in flour products and in animal feed stocks because of its high nutritive value. Furthermore, watermelon meal possesses good nutritional quality, which may be commercially used as a new feed in the human or in the cattle nutrition. Seed oils, from Rubus ideaus, Ribes nigrum and walnut are also presented. The chemical composition on the sterols and essential fatty acids content, of these seed oils are shown that some of them can be successfully used in human nutrition, under specific conditions. Finally, developing new cholesterol-reducing products, such as phytosterols and their esters, which are marked as cholesterol-reducing food ingredient as well as the information on its incorporation into foods, are also included.

Stanojevi? Sla?ana P.,Vuceli?-RadoviBiljana,Bara? Miroljub B.,Pe?i? Mirjana B.
Acta Periodica Technologica , 2004, DOI: 10.2298/apt0435049s
Abstract: The effects of autoclaving conditions (heating for 5, 10 and 15 minutes at 0.5 bars over pressure) and oil-extracting temperatures (40°C, 60°C) on protein content, composition, and inhibitor activity of cracked soybeans were investigated. The results obtained indicated that oil-extracting method and heat treatment had significant influence on soluble protein content and composition. Raw soybean samples defatted at lower temperature had better solubility (535.42±2.10 mg/g) than those obtained by the Soxhlet procedure (345.53±2.80). The same results were obtained for nitrogen solubility index. Autoclaving combined with two oil-extraction methods decreased protein solubility to 180.32±1.50 -245.41±1.41 mg/g, while the dominant component of heat treated flours was 11S fraction. High content of glycinin fraction (44.59-41.10%) implies the possible use of treated samples in food industry. Residual activity of treated samples was 43.40-84.26%. Kunitz inhibitor (KTI) was responsible for residual inhibitor activity.
EDUCATION IN SERBIA: INCLUSIVE AND E-LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES
Mirjana Radovi? Markovi?,Biljana Bodroski Spariosu
Serbian Journal of Management , 2010,
Abstract: The authors discuss in this paper how information technologies and e-learning can support and improve inclusive education. This paper is divided into three parts: The first part is focused on different approaches to the concept of inclusive education and its relations to the similar concepts – social inclusion and educational integration. In the second part are considered the essential principles of inclusive education (principle of equal opportunities, principle of personal and individualistic approach, the principle of personal consideration and their different educational needs, principle of permanent education) as well as potential problems in their practical applying process. The third part is devoted to different opportunities and e-learning models as an function of inclusive education improvement. The researchers present an overview of the some recent projects and use their results to discuss advantages of using e-learning as an alternative opportunity and support to inclusive education. They concluded in the final part of the paper that new developments in higher education – from virtual universities and cross-border education to e-learning – all speak to the efforts on the traditional higher education community to address the challenges they face in new technology driven on-line environment. In addition, the authors findings suggest that without good policy and financial support there is no good interaction between inclusive education and e-learning.
Recommendations for Use of Free Light Chain Assay in Monoclonal Gammopathies
Vesna V. Radovi
Journal of Medical Biochemistry , 2010, DOI: 10.2478/v10011-009-0034-7
Abstract: The serum immunoglobulin free light chain assay measures levels of free κ and λ immunoglobulin light chains. There are three major indications for the free light chain assay in the evaluation and management of multiple myeloma and related plasma cell disorders. In the context of screening, the serum free light chain assay in combination with serum protein electrophoresis and immunofixation yields high sensitivity, and negates the need for 24-hour urine studies for diagnoses other than light chain amyloidosis. Second, the baseline free light chains measurement is of major prognostic value in virtually every plasma cell disorder. Third, the free light chain assay allows for quantitative monitoring of patients with oligosecretory plasma cell disorders, including AL, oligosecretory myeloma, and nearly twothirds of patients who had previously been deemed to have non-secretory myeloma. In AL patients, serial free light chains measurements outperform protein electrophoresis and immunofixation. In oligosecretory myeloma patients, although not formally validated, serial free light chains measurements reduce the need for frequent bone marrow biopsies. In contrast, there are no data to support using free light chain assay in place of 24-hour urine electrophoresis for monitoring or for serial measurements in plasma cell disorders with measurable disease by serum or urine electrophoresis.

Medicinski Pregled , 2011, DOI: 10.2298/mpns1102055r
Abstract: Introduction. According to the convincing evidence, a decline in mortality rate has been achieved with beta-blockers in patients with an acute myocardial infarction and in post-infarction follow-up. In fact, there has been a clear reduction of sudden coronary death. The necessary condition for the efficiency of beta-blockers is an early use. They are also a medication of choice for angina after an infarction. The objective of this work was to evaluate the use of beta-blockers after a myocardial infarction in various clinical states and to eliminate doubts concerning their prescription. Beta blockers Even in conditions considered contraindications for administration of beta blockers such as old age, diabetes, non-Q-wave myocardial infarction, peripheral vascular disease, arterial disease, heart insufficiency, ventricular arrhythmias, renal disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, asthma and depression, patients benefit from beta blockers when they are given along with a right choice of the medication and a regular follow-up of the patient. Preference is given to cardioselective beta blockers in patients with diabetes or lung disease. Beta-blockers do not cause long-term lipid alterations. Therefore, the matter of clinically significant alterations of lipids or blood glucose levels should not need further consideration as a problem of the treatment of diabetics. Discussion and conclusion. Investigations have proved that the use of beta-blockers reduces the development of cerebrovascular accidents, heart insufficiency and hypertension. Despite strong arguments and numerous recommendations, beta-blockers have not been accepted to a sufficient extent as an integral part of treatment of acute coronary syndrome and related diseases, to the detriment of many lost lives and in spite of favourable pharmaco-economic aspect.

Medicinski Pregled , 2009, DOI: 10.2298/mpns0910450r
Abstract: Convincing evidence of the decline of mortality has been achieved with beta-blockers in patients with an acute myocardial infarction and in post-infarction follow-up. The beta-blockers are also the most efficient antianginal medications for the decrease of ischemia in outpatients. They are highly efficient as a monotherapy for angina and are also a medication of choice for angina after the coronary. The objective of this work was an estimate of the use of beta-blockers in secondary prevention of the ischemic heart disease and eliminating doubts concerning their prescription. The method of the analysis sums up the results of a twenty-five- year study on of the outcome of the treatment with beta-blockers in secondary prevention of the ischemic heart disease. The method of the work implies an examination of the professional literature and the data-bases, such as MEDLINE, PubMed and KOBSON. The first studies concerned non-selective beta-blockers, used orally. The following studies concerned cardioselective beta-blockers, metoprolol and atenolol. Several studies followed also the effect of beta-blockers and heparin, or beta-blockers and antagonists of calcium towards placebo, in patients with an unstable angina pectoris. Beta-blockers are an essential drug in secondary prevention of the myocardial infarction and in chronic heart failure. The necessary condition for the efficiency of beta-blockers is an early use. Beta-blockers should be given within 12 hours after the appearance of pain. The continuation of the therapy with beta-blockers after the acute phase is considered to be important in the decrease of the infarction zone expansion. Prophylactic use of beta-blockers after the coronary has an excellent effect, above all in patients with a minor, uncomplicated coronary. Though certain groups of beta-blockers have some special characteristics, when it comes to the treatment of angina pectoris, all beta-blockers are efficient. Generally, patients react well to them. Preference is given to cardioselective remedies, in patients with diabetes or lung disease. Exhaustive controlled clinical studies affirm beta-blockers as drugs that reduce mortality in secondary prevention of the ischemic heart disease.

Medicinski Pregled , 2010, DOI: 10.2298/mpns1010662r
Abstract: Introduction. Biochemical cardiac markers play an important role in diagnosing and treatment of patients with acute coronary syndrome. Markers of myocytes necrosis, troponins, have been recommended for diagnosing and treatment of myocardial infarction with ST segment elevation, myocardial infarction without ST segment elevation and unstable angina pectoris. Two more groups of cardiac markers have been gaining in importance: inflammation markers and cardiac function markers. The objective of this study was the risk stratification and identification of patients with coronary syndrome, who could take advantage from evolutionary changes of serum cardiac markers. Material and Methods. The method of the analysis sums up the results of independently published studies and literature and data base review, such as MEDLINE, PubMed and KOBSON. Inflammation markers. Systemic and localized inflammation plays an important role in the development of acute coronary syndrome. The following inflammation markers are available: C-reactive protein. IL-2, sedimentation of erythrocytes and fibrinogen; as well as myocardial necrosis markers: creatine kinase MB, myoglobin and cardiac troponins. Conclusion. Tropinins are ideal markers which enable early detection of patients with acute coronary syndrome, whereas inflammation markers are helpful in diagnosing and assessing the severity of inflammation.
