BACKGROUND: In case of cow's milk allergy (CMA), pediatric guidelines recommend for children the use of extensively hydrolyzed formulas (eHFs) as elimination diet. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, the hypoallergenicity of each specific eHF should be tested in subjects with CMA. METHODS: A prospective, multicenter trial was performed to assess the tolerance/hypoallergenicity of a thickened casein-based eHF (eHCF, Allernova AR®, United Pharmaceuticals, France) in infants aged <12 months with CMA proven by a double-blind placebo-controlled food challenge...

A series of Eu(2+) -activated barium orthosilicates (BaZnSiO4 ) were synthesized using a high-temperature solid-state reaction. A photoluminescence excitation study of Eu(2) (+) shows a broad absorption band in the range of 270-450 nm, with multiple absorption peak maxima (310, 350 and 400 nm) due to 4f-5d electronic transition. The emission spectra of all the compositions show green color emission (in the spectral region 450-550 nm with a peak maximum at 502 nm and a shoulder at ~ 490 nm) with appropriate Comission Internationale de l'Eclairage (CIE) color coordinates...

INTRODUCTION: The diagnosis and management of cow's milk allergy (CMA) is a topic of debate because there are no specific symptoms and reliable diagnostic tests. METHOD: Literature was searched using databases to find original papers and reviews on this topic. RESULTS: A "challenge test" is still recommended as the most specific and sensitive diagnostic test, although a positive challenge test does not proof the involvement of the immune system...

UNLABELLED: Clinicians with expertise in managing children with gastrointestinal problems and/or atopic diseases attended a workshop in Brussels in September 2014 to review the literature and determine whether a clinical score derived from symptoms associated with the ingestion of cow's milk proteins could help primary healthcare providers. The Cow's Milk-related Symptom Score (CoMiSS), which considers general manifestations, dermatological, gastrointestinal and respiratory symptoms, was developed as an awareness tool for cow's milk-related symptoms...

UNLABELLED: In the 1920s Czechoslovakia, an increased attention was paid to the new ideas of scientific management (Taylorism), work rationalization and standardization. This was reflected in the foundation of the Masaryk Academy of Work in 1920. An effort to implement the new principles into health care led to the establishment of the Commission for Rationalization and Standardization in Medicine, Veterinary Medicine and Pharmacy (RANOK) within the Department of Natural Science and Medicine of the Academy...

This paper identifies problems and analyzes those conflicts posed by the evaluation of research projects involving the collection and use of human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS) in Spain. Current legislation is causing problems of interpretation, circular and unnecessary referrals, legal uncertainty and undue delays. Actually, this situation may cause a lack of control and monitoring, and even some paralysis in regenerative medicine and cell therapy research, that is a priority nowadays. The analysis of the current legislation and its bioethical implications, led us to conclude that the review of iPS research projects cannot be assimilated to the evaluation of research projects that involve human embryonic stem cell (hESC)...

The purpose of this study was to evaluate and compare textual error rates and subtypes in radiology reports before and after implementation of department-wide structured reports. Randomly selected radiology reports that were generated following the implementation of department-wide structured reports were evaluated for textual errors by two radiologists. For each report, the text was compared to the corresponding audio file. Errors in each report were tabulated and classified. Error rates were compared to results from a prior study performed prior to implementation of structured reports...

In article are given substantiation for modification of contemporary list of biologically active substances with undesirable toxicological qualities (namely included in this list of menthofuran, methyleugenol (4-Allyl-1,2-dimethoxybenzene), teucrin A, capsaicin, estragol1 (-Allyl-4-methoxybenzene) and excluded from the list of quinine, santonin, berberin) and developing the list of plants--natural sources of flavourings substances. The new criteria of European Union for including into the relevant for using in/on foodstuff list of flavouring substances, which was published in the Comission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 872/2012 concerning flavourings, listed the 11 flavouring substances for which have been established indexes of foodstuffs in manufacturing, which there are could using and criteria of their safety (caffeine, theobromine, neohesperidin dihydrocalcone, rebaudioside A, d-camphor, three quinine salts (FL 14...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to assess, in vitro, the color of teeth exposed to different mouthrinses for a prolonged period. METHODS: Bovine teeth were distributed in four groups: control, alcohol-containing mouthrinse (Listerine(®)), alcohol-free mouthrinse (Oral-B(®)) and chlorhexidine mouthrinse (Periogard(®)). The teeth were submitted to two cycles of staining and artificial aging. Color evaluation was performed with a digital spectrophotometer at the beginning of the experiment and after every cycle...

The present paper is an amendment to the recent Italian Guidelines of human milk banking published in 2010. Working Group on Guidelines (Panel) of the Italian Association of Human Milk Banks (AIBLUD) states, in accordance with the European Union Comission's Amending Directive of January 2011, that the hard plastic feeding bottles used in the collection, storage and pasteurization of the human milk should be Bisphenol A (BPA) free. Until new evidence are available polycarbonate feeding bottles should not be used for collection, storage and pasteurization of human milk...

BACKGROUND: Training pension was introduced into the Polish social security system on September 1, 1997. It is granted to a person who has permanently lost the ability to work in his or her current vocation, but after an appropriate retraining may do another profession. The aim of this study was to assess the compatibility between ruling of job retraining and medical certification rules. An effort was also made to evaluate the "effectiveness" of issued recommendations expressed by the number of retrained people...

Tamoxifen is a standard endocrine therapy for the prevention and treatment of steroid hormone receptor-positive breast cancer. Tamoxifen requires enzymatic activation by CYP 450 enzymes for the formation of clinically relevant metabolites, 4-OH-tamoxifen and endoxifen, which both have a greater affinity to the estrogen receptor and ability to inhibit cell proliferation when compared to the parent drug. CYP2D6 is the key enzyme in this biotransformation, and recent mechanistic, pharmacologic, and clinical pharmacogenetic evidence suggests that genetic variants and drug interaction by CYP2D6 inhibitors influence plasma concentrations of active tamoxifen metabolites and outcome of patients treated with adjuvant tamoxifen...
