On the continuity of probabilistic distance [article]

Dragoljub J. Kečkić, Marina Milovanović-Aranelović
2018 arXiv   pre-print
The famous result of B. Schweizer and A. Sklar [Pacific J Math 10(1960) 313--334 - Theorem 8.2] asserts that, given a probabilistic metric space (X, F,t), F={F_p,q:p,q∈ X}, we have F_p_n,q_n(x)→ F_p,q(x) provided that F_p,q is continuous at x and t is continuous and stronger then Łukasiwicz's t-norm. We extend this result to arbitrary continuous triangular norms, i.e. we omit the condition "t is stronger then Łukasiewicz's".

Nebojsa Zakic, Marina Bugarcic, Marina Milovanovic
2017 International Review  
The approach to open innovation presents one of the major trends in terms of constant change and accelerating technological innovation. The given construct proclivity for open innovation involves measuring technology exploration and technology exploitation involving different inside-out and outside-in open innovation activities. In this paper, we are researching the tendency for open innovation on a sample of 102 companies in the agriculture and food sectors in Serbia. The research has shown

Quantitative analysis of AMPA receptor subunit composition in addiction-related brain regions

Jeremy M. Reimers, Michael Milovanovic, Marina E. Wolf
2011 Brain Research  
The subunit composition of α-amino-3-hydroxyl-5-methyl-4-isoxazole-propionate receptors (AMPARs) is an important determinant of AMPAR biophysical properties and trafficking. To date, AMPAR subunit composition has been quantitatively evaluated only for the hippocampus, where different experimental approaches have yielded different results. Here, we used quantitative co-immunoprecipitation to characterize GluA1-3 associations in the adult rat nucleus accumbens, dorsal striatum, prefrontal cortex,
more » ... and hippocampus, and blue native electrophoresis (BNE) to study GluA1-3 assembly state. In all brain regions, co-immunoprecipitation experiments showed that ~90% of GluA1 was associated with GluA2 or GluA3 (most was GluA1A2). All regions contained a small number of GluA1A3 receptors. Homomeric GluA1 receptors may also exist. More than half of the GluA2 (53%-65% depending on the region) was not associated with GluA1. However, this represents an over-estimate of the percent of GluA2 present in GluA2A3 receptors, based on BNE results demonstrating that the majority of GluA2 exists as dimers, rather than functional tetrameric receptors. Relatively more GluA1 was present in tetramers. Together with other findings, our results suggest a dominant role for GluA1A2 receptors in all brain regions examined. They also help explain why different results for hippocampal AMPAR subunit composition were obtained using co-immunoprecipitation, which assesses the total cellular pool of AMPARs including partially assembled AMPARs in intracellular compartments, and electrophysiological approaches, which can selectively assess tetrameric (functional) AMPARs on the cell surface.

The PtCl2(S-pr-thiosal)2 reduced the viability of BCL1 cells in vitro but also reduced the growth of metastases in the leukemia lymphoma model in BALB/c mice. PtCl2(S-pr-thiosal)2 induced apoptosis, inhibited proliferation of BCL1 cells, and induced cell cycle disturbance. Treatment of BCL1 cells with PtCl2(S-pr-thiosal)2 inhibited expression of cyclin D3 and cyclin E and enhanced expression of cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitors p16, p21, and p27 resulting in cell cycle arrest in the G1 phase, reduced the percentage of BCL1 cells in the S phase, and decreased expression of Ki-67. PtCl2(S-pr-thiosal)2 treatment reduced expression of phosphorylated STAT3 and downstream-regulated molecules associated with cancer stemness and proliferation, NANOG, cyclin D3, and c-Myc, and expression of phosphorylated NFκB in vitro and in vivo. In conclusion, PtCl2(S-pr-thiosal)2 reduces STAT3 and NFκB phosphorylation resulting in inhibition of BCL1 cell proliferation and the triggering of apoptotic cell death.

Uvod Kardiorenalni sindrom se definiše kao patofiziološki poremećaj funkcije srca i bubrega, u kome akutni ili hronični poremećaj funkcije jednog organa podstiče akutni ili hronični poremećaj drugog organa (1-5). Razlikujemo pet tipova kardio-renalnog sindroma, a u kardio-renalnom sindromu tip 2 hrončni poremećaj funkcije srca za posledicu ima hronični poremećaj funkcije bubrega (1-5).

PREGLED SAŽETAK Zastojna srčana slabost za posledicu ima smanjen srčani rad, smanjenu zapreminu arterijske krvi koja obezbeđuje perfuziju organa, hipoperfuziju tkiva i aktivaciju neurohormonalnih sistema. Rad je imao za cilj da analizira faktore rizika, patogenetske mehanizme razvoja kardiorenalnog sindroma i da ukaže na klinički značaj ranog otkrivanja i pravovremenog lečenja kardiorenalnog sindroma kod bolesnika sa akutnim popuštanjem hronične zastojne srčane slabosti. Analizirani su stručni radovi i kliničke studije koje se bave etiopatogenezom, dijagnostikovanjem i lečenjem kardiorenalnog sindroma. Zbog prepunjenosti kapilara pluća bolesnik oseća gušenje, javljaju se pleuralni izliv, ascites, periferni i generalizovani otoci. Smanjena efektivna zapremina arterijske krvi smanjuje perfuziju bubrega, usled čega dolazi do razvoja akutnog oštećenja bubrega. Pojačana aktivnost neurohormonalnih sistema, rezistencija na diuretike, zadržavanje natrijuma i vode u organizmu povećavaju opterećenje volumenom i pogoršavaju srčanu slabost. Kontrolisano odstranjivanje tečnosti vantelesnom ultrafiltracijom popravlja kliničko stanje bolesnika kod kojih postoji preopterećenje volumenom i prepunjenost kapilara pluća. Održavanje ravnoteže između zapremine ekstracelularne tečnosti koja se odstranjuje i zapremine arterijske krvi koja obezbeđuje perfuziju bubrega, ima ključnu ulogu u sprečavanju razvoja akutnog oštećenja bubrega i značajno doprinosi smanjenju morbiditeta i mortaliteta, i poboljšanju kvaliteta života ovih bolesnika. Ključne reči: zastojna srčana slabost, akutno oštećenje bubrega, ultrafiltracija, rezistencija na diuretike ABSTRACT Congestive heart failure, as a consequence, has decreased cardiac work, decreased effective arterial volume, tissue hypoperfusion and neurohormonal system activation. The study aimed at finding risk factors, pathogenetic mechanisms for progression of cardiorenal syndrome and highlighting clinical importance of early findings, prevention and timely treatment of cardiorenal syndrome in patients with acute decompensation of chronic congestive heart failure. Expert papers and clinical studies that deal with etiopathogenesis, diagnosis and treatment of cardiorenal syndrome were analyzed. Due to overfilling of pulmonary cappilaries patients is dispnoic, pleural effusion, ascites, periferal and generalized swellings are present. Decreased effective arterial volume decreases kidney perfusion which causes acute kidney damage. Increased neurohormonal systems activity, reistency to diuretics, retention of sodium and water in the organism overload volume and worsen heart failure. Controlled liquid disposal by ultrafiltration improves clinical status in patients with increased preload and cappilaries overfilling. Equillibrium maintenance between extracellular volume disposal and effective arterial extracellular volume, which enables kidney perfusion, plays key role in prevention of acute kidney damage contributing importantly in morbidity and mortality decrease as well as better quality of life for these patients.

Our meta-analysis was based on systematic search of literature and selection of high-quality evidence according to pre-set inclusion and exclusion criteria. The effects of reslizumab and placebo were summarized using Review Manager (RevMan) 5.3.5 and heterogeneity was assessed by the Cochrane Q test and I² values. Several types of bias were assessed and publication bias shown by Funnel plot and Egger's regression. Results. The meta-analysis in-cluded 5 randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trials. Reslizumab 3.0 mg/kg produced substantial improvements in forced expiratory volume in 1. second (FEV 1) (mean difference 0.15 [0.10, 0.21]) and in forced vital capacity (FVC) (mean difference 0.21 [0.09, 0.32]) over the 15 or 16-week treatment period, substantial decrease versus placebo in Asthma Control Questionnaire (ACQ) score (mean difference -0.28 [-0.41, -0.16]), and substantial increase vs. placebo from baseline in Asthma Quality of Life Questionnaire (AQLQ) total score (mean difference 0.24 [0.06, 0.43]). Also, reslizumab 3.0 mg/kg caused less adverse events versus placebo (OR 0.67 [0.51, 0.88]), especially asthma worsening (OR 0.53 [0.36, 0.77]) or bronchitis (OR 0.42 [0.24, 0.74]). Conclusion. On the basis of published clinical trials reslizumab could be considered as an effective and safe therapeutic option for severe, poorly controlled eosinophilic asthma for the time being.

Introduction/Objective. Vocal folds are the most common primary site of laryngeal carcinoma. Advancement in diagnostic and therapeutic modalities have provided better prognosis for patients with early glottic carcinoma. We aimed to report the role of videolaryngostroboscopy (VLS) in early diagnosis of vocal fold carcinoma. Methods. Prospective controlled study included 300 dysphonic patients admitted to the tertiary medical center for microlaryngoscopy with biopsy. All patients underwent

VLS findings were classified according to Hirano into 4 stages, with a adynamic vocal fold segment and absence of vocal fold vibration, suspected for vocal fold carcinoma as a stage IV. Histopathological findings have been graded according to Ljubljana classification into simple hyperplasia, abnormal hyperplasia, atypical hyperplasia and carcinoma in situ. Results. Analysis of VLS findings showed that 41.67% of patients (n = 125/300) had asymmetrical and irregular vocal fold vibration with a mucosal wave reduction (VLS stage III) while adynamic vocal fold segment and absence of vocal fold vibration (VLS stage IV), suspected for vocal fold carcinoma, was noticed in 17.33% of patients (n = 52/300). HP report showed that vocal fold carcinoma was verified in 5.6% of patients in VLS stage III (n = 7/125), while in VLS stage IV carcinoma was detected in 26.92% of patients (n = 14/52). Adynamic segment or entire nonvibrating vocal fold finding predicts early glottic carcinoma with a sensitivity of 66.77%, specificity of 86.4%, and moderate diagnostic accuracy (AUC = 0.844). Conclusion. VLS plays an important role as a timely indicator for microlaryngoscopy with biopsy in diagnosis of vocal fold carcinoma.
