The area in the midstream of the Mailuu-Suu River is the most landslide-prone and vulnerable of the entire Kyrgyzstan territory. More than 200 landslide sources distinct by genesis, age and development stages have been fixed at present in the outskirts of the Mailuu-Suu town within an area of 80 km2 only. The main reasons of mountain slopes instability in this area are the geologic conditions and geodynamic peculiarities of the region. Seismic, climatic and man-caused factors play a role of rather a trigger mechanism ... [less ▲]

This paper analyzes the pervasiveness and persistence of rent seeking, misgovernance, and public sector inefficiency in many developing and transition economies. We formalize evidence from country experiences and empirical studies into a stylized analytical framework that reflects realistic constraints faced in these countries. Our work departs from the standard economic literature by assuming that (i) the relationship between the government and its population is regulated through an implicit social consensus; (ii) traditional incentives (in the form of public expenditure controls, sanctions, or monetary incentives to perform) are, for various reasons, ineffective in many of these countries; and (iii) the persistence of high corruption reflects a very stable equilibrium, which in turn reflects the fact that several constraints are simultaneously binding. We argue that, when traditional incentives fail, transparency—information provision and disclosure, together with the means to use it—by relaxing different constraints, can contribute to improving public outcomes.

The misdiagnosis of onychomycosis delays the proper treatment of the nail condition. Nail histomycology refers to the microscopic examination of histologic sections prepared from nail clippings for the purpose of detecting the presence of fungi. This laboratory method is the most sensitive procedure for the diagnosis of onychomycosis. It allows for the visualization of the precise location of the invasive fungus inside the nail apparatus. The method also distinguishes various shapes of the fungal cells, in particular filamentous fungi, yeasts, conidia, and sporodochia. The correct diagnosis provided by histomycology combined with culture not only allows for more efficient expenditure of funds and services but also is important for the timely alleviation of the disorder.

The urinary bladder of four dogs with emphysematous cystitis was assessed radiographically. Ultrasonography was also performed using a 7.5-MHz microconvex probe in dorsal recumbency and in a standing position. Ultrasonographically there were bright echoes and reverberations typical of gas in all dogs. This was entrapped in the bladder wall as it appeared in the same location in recumbent and standing positions. Bladder size was reduced and bladder content was echogenic in all dogs. In only one out of the four dogs was a gas stripe seen in the bladder on radiographs. Proteus mirahilis was isolated from the urine of all patients. Diabetes was ruled out on the basis of urine and blood analysis. A small amount of gas can be difficult to detect on radiographs. Ultrasonography appears to be a more sensitive technique for detection of gas within the bladder at an early stage of emphysematous cystitis. Prevalence of emphysematous cystitis may be underestimated if only radiographs are made. [less ▲]

Adaptation to pregnancy involves major maternal anatomical, physiological and metabolic modifications to support the mother's metabolic needs and those of the growing foetus. Invasion of embryonic territories and implantation in humans and other mammals is the result of an active biochemical process. The invasive faculty of cytotrophoblastic cells depends on their capacity to secrete proteolytic enzymes such as matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs). Many studies have addressed the variations in MMPs in placental tissues, but few have reported on their measurements in plasma. Furthermore, the Pregnancy-Associated Glycoproteins (PAGs), which are synthesized in the syncytiotrophoblast and used as early markers of pregnancy in domestic and wild animals, have not yet been studied in rabbits. In this study, we attempt to purify PAGs from rabbit placenta using a previously described methodology and to measure their concentrations as well as those of MMP-2 and MMP-9 in the plasma throughout pregnancy. In the course of the work, we noted certain modifications of the biochemical parameters in plasma during gestation, essentially in glycemia and lipemia. We detected proteins immunologically-related to PAGs in placental extracts between D-14 to D-21. Until now, it has been impossible to develop a homologous RIA in order to measure PAGs in rabbit plasma, as the recovery of PAGs during the purification procedure was very low and PAGs were undetectable in rabbit plasma using heterologous RIAs. Finally, we demonstrated a rise in MMP-2 and -9 at the middle and the end of the gestation. However, the small variations presented by these matrix metalloproteinases preclude the use of plasma levels of these enzymes as early markers of pregnancy progress in the rabbit. [less ▲]

Accuracy and reliability of the analytical results are crucial for ensuring quality, safety, and efficacy of pharmaceutical products. However, to ensure these criteria, analytical validation is required. In this matter, many official documents describing the criteria of validation are available. However, these concern mainly chromatography analysis and bio-analytical methods of pharmaceutical products, but they do not propose any experimental protocol for direct potentiometric methods using ion-selective electrodes applied in pharmaceutical analysis. In this work, we are proposing a validation strategy based on the normative and regulatory guidelines applied to a potentiometric method with a polymeric membrane selective to cetirizine dihydrochloride. The statistical analysis obtained from raw data is described for all steps of this protocol. Also this validated method was successfully applied to the determination of cetirizine in pharmaceutical preparations using direct potentiometry with a mean relative standard deviation of 0.57% and a mean recovery of 99.63%.

La mammite a de multiples origines et est souvent de type subclinique, rendant contrôle et surveillance difficiles. La majorité des études relatives aux mammites se caractérise par une approche individuelle. Le cadre expérimental restreint de celles-ci ne permet pas une interprétation précise des observations, à la suite du nombre limité de facteurs étudiés. L’approche choisie pour cette étude se veut globale et implique un grand nombre d’exploitations. Elle a pour objectifs d’identifier et de hiérarchiser, au travers d’une enquête, les caractéristiques générales de traite et les conditions environnementales des élevages laitiers influençant le statut sanitaire du pis [less ▲]
