Title: The Effects of FGF2 and Ozone Applications to Experimental Hypoxic Ischemic Rat Cerebrum

Abstract:Our study aims to show whether the administration of Fibroblast Growth Factor-2 (FGF2) and ozone against neuron-damaging hypoxia-ischemia has any neuroprotective effects in rats exposed to experimental cerebral ischemia-reperfusion. 6 groups were created with each group containing 10 rat that 7d old male Wistar rats. The first group, which was the Sham group, was the one in which a neck dissection was performed while ischemia was not caused. 2nd group, carotid arteries were linked, hypoxia was induced in order to cause hypoxia-ischemia (HI), which is done all groups except sham. The other groups were the ones with 10 µl/ml and 20 µl/ml FGF2 administered. The last groups were the ones with 25 ?g/ml and 50 ?g/ml ozone administered, routine tissue follow-up procedures were carried out and stained with hematoxylin and eosin stain, and inflammation, eosinophilic cytoplasm, edema in the cerebral cortex, vascular congestion and necrobiotic-necrotic changes were scored and evaluated. In light microscope revealed moderate-to-severe eosinophilic cytoplasm and necrobiotic changes in the HI group when compared to the Sham group and the 20 µl/ml FGF2 group among others. Significant differences in the criteria of inflammation, vascular congestion and edema in the cerebral cortex was detected between the same groups. Kruskal-Wallis test was used for intergroup comparison resulted in a statistically significant difference between all of the study groups (p< 0.05). In our study, morphological recovery was observed depending on the different doses of FGF2 and ozone used to protect the neurons, were fund to be statistically significant.




Title: Effect of the Compressive Follower Preload on Vertical Modal Responses of the Lumbar Spine

Abstract:The aim of this study was to investigate effect of the compressive follower preload on modal characteristics of the human whole lumbar spine. A computed tomography (CT)-based 3D ligamentous FE model of the human T12–pelvis spinal segment was developed and validated to predict lumbar modal responses in terms of resonant frequency and mode shape in vertical direction under different values of compressive follower preload. The results showed that under the 0 N, 400 N, 600 N and 800 N preloads, the vertical resonant frequencies for the T12–pelvis model were 6.49 Hz, 7.27 Hz, 7.55 Hz and 7.76 Hz respectively, which presented an increase with increasing preload magnitude. The mode shapes at these resonant frequencies illustrated that the lumbar spine not only performed vertical motion but anterior-posterior (A-P) motion and rotation under vertical vibration. Moreover, increasing the preload decreased vertical displacement of the vertebrae and also altered their A-P displacement and rotational angle in the sagittal plane for the vertical mode shape.




Title: Awake Bruxism After Initiation Of Sustained Release Methylphenidate (CONCERTA).

Abstract:Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a common disorder that affecting about 5-10% of school age children. A Sustained release methylphenidate (CONCERTA) is commonly used to treat such condition in children. It has a great efficacy in ADHD children. A lot of reports have documented the relationship between MPH and sleep bruxism. However, there is a paucity of reports in the literature that documented awake bruxism as a side effect of sustained release MPH. Up to our knowledge there is only one report of its kind showing such relationships. We report the case of a 10-year-old girl who presented with awake bruxism after her third dose of sustained release MPH. \nIt is a serious side effect of a sustained release methylphenidate (CONCERTA) that might affect health of oral cavity. So, it is important to pick it up early to prevent serious complication and improve quality of life for them.




Title: Effects of thymol on growth, percentage of answer, proportioning of protein and carbohydrate on Paramecium tétraurelia

Abstract:EOs has received attention in recent years as potential ‘natural’ alternatives for replacing antibiotic growth promoters due to their positive impact on growth performance. They were shown to have antimicrobial properties against different types of microorganisms including bacteria and fungi [1]. Results from those studies revealed desirable effects of EO and their derivatives [2-3] for human. \nHowever paramecium sp were used to study environmental qualities and toxic effects of industrial, agricultural and domestic chemicals [4-5]. The objective of this study was to examine in vitro toxicity of essential oil (thymol) and to describe their specific effects on, the population growth, percentage of answer, Proportioning of protein and Proportioning of carbohydrate. \nResults showed that treatment affected the population growth, percentage of answer, Proportioning of protein and Proportioning of carbohydrate. Among the effects of thymol on the growth, we find that different doses have direct and rapid effects on the living organism development of Paramecium tetraurelia.

Title: Preliminary study on the seroprevalence of toxoplasmosis and neosporosis in cattle farms in Algeria.

Abstract:In Algeria, abortions represent a brake to the development of bovine breedings. For that we \npurpose an investigation on the prevalence of the main abortive agents as Neospora caninum and \nToxoplasma gondii to estimate the potential risk that represent the beef meat for the consumers. 5673 \nserums of cattle distributed in 29 departments of the country, was tested by the technique ELISA. A \nglobal prevalence of 84.30 % (77,8 - 90,8 %) for Toxoplasma gondii, and 58.68 % (50.7-68,2 %) for \nNeospora caninum was revealed. Our results also indicate seroprevalence in 28 bovine breedings on \n29 followed departments (the East, the West, Center and the South). Furthermore, Toxoplasma and \nNeospora circulates in the same bovine breedings of the departments of Ain Témouchent, Constantine, \nand Saïda

Title: FOOD CONSUMPTION OF AGRIBUSINESS ENTERPRISES: MATHEMATICAL MODEL OF DEMAND

Abstract:The purpose of the article is to study the regional analysis of demand for food products of processing agro-industrial complexes by applying the economic and mathematical model. \nIn the course of investigation the regional model of demand for food products of processing agro-industrial complexes, the methods of correlation and regression analysis and economic and mathematical modeling have been used.\nOn the ground of the conucted research, economic and mathematical model of regional demand for products of processing agro-industrial complexes has been reviewed and developed. By means of mathematical transformations using methods of A.A. Konyus’ differential geometry, we have received an equation to analyze the regional demand for products of processing agro-industrial complexes to detect the features of food consumption influenced by income levels, the ratio between its individual socio-economic groups and distribution of productive forces in the region. \nThe regional model of demand food products of processing agro-industrial complexes has been built and key factors of this model have been identified. The developed structural model of demand is based on the fact that each consumer group which is classified by income, according to the budget survey, inherent relevant structure of demand.\nThe proposed regional model of demand for food products of processing agro-industrial complexes allows calculating the scale of advantages, applying the average price index for individual products without quantitative measurement of marginal utility. This model makes it possible to improve the formation and use of enterprises economic potential.
