NON-ANTIBIOTIC USE OF ANTIBIOTICS

Antibiotics are widely used medicines in the treatment of infectious diseases. However, some of them show also non-antibiotic properties, which are increasingly used in the treatment of non-infectious diseases. The authors of this publication believe that this is one of the reasons behind antibiotic dissemination in the environment and, ipso facto, behind the increasing risk of bacterial resistance. It is worth remembering that, along with the progress in science and better knowledge of the new

Terrestrial Non-Parasitic Nematode Assemblages associated With Glyphosate-tolerant and Conventional Soybean-Based Cropping Systems

Information about the effects of glyphosate on nematodes is limited and contradictory, while none existing for South African agricultural fields. The abundance and identity of non-parasitic nematodes in the rhizospheres of commercial glyphosate-tolerant and conventional (non-glyphosate-tolerant), soybean cultivars from cultivated fields, and adjacent natural vegetation (reference system) were obtained for two growing seasons. The impact of glyphosate was also investigated on non-parasitic

ANALYSIS OF NON-BINARY FAULT TOLERANT EVENT DETECTION IN WIRELESS SENSOR NETWORKS

A distributed non-binary fault tolerant event detection technique is proposed for a wireless sensor network (WSN) consisting of a large number of sensors. The sensor nodes may be faulty due to harsh environment and manufacturing reasons. In the existing works on event detection, the detection of event is decided by only one threshold level. The objective of this paper is to extend the fault recognition and correction algorithm for non-binary event detection. The analysis presented here takes

Non-antibiotics, Efflux Pumps and Drug Resistance of Gram-negative Rods

Non-antibiotic medicinal products consist of drugs with diverse activity against bacteria. Many non-antibiotics demonstrate direct anti-bacterial activity against Gram-positive cocci. The activity observed against Gram-negative rods is much lower and non-antibiotics primarily from the following groups: non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, cardiovascular and antidepressant medicinal products demonstrate this activity. It has been shown that the low activity of some non-antibiotics or the

A GENERALIZED EXPONENTIAL TYPE ESTIMATOR OF POPULATION MEAN IN THE PRESENCE OF NON-RESPONSE

In this article, we propose a class of generalized exponential type estimators to estimate the finite population mean by using two auxiliary variables under non-response in simple random sampling. The proposed estimator under non-response in different situations has been studied and gives minimum mean square error as compared to all other considered estimators. Usual exponential ratio type estimator, exponential product type estimator and many more estimators are also identified from the

Nematicides have been shown to reduce plant-parasitic nematodes, but few studies have evaluated the effect on non-parasitic nematodes. These include bacterial-feeding (bacterivores), fungal-feeding (fungivores), omnivorous (omnivores), and predaceous (predatory) nematodes. Because of the high abundance, ubiquitous nature, and occupancy

A BLIND SOURCE SEPARATION METHOD FOR CONVOLVED MIXTURES BY NON-STATIONARY VIBRATION SIGNALS

A simple and feasible of BSS method to separate the convolution mixture of non-stationary vibration signals is present in this paper. The method is carried out by means of two iterative procedures: The first procedure is to estimate the coefficients of the filters. The independence criterion is used and the unknown filters are obtained by a back propagation procedure by means of simplifying the coefficients of filters. The next procedure is to estimate the source vibration signals. The coupled

ESTIMATION OF PRODUCT OF TWO POPULATION MEANS BY MULTI-AUXILIARY CHARACTERS UNDER DOUBLE SAMPLING THE NON-RESPONDENTS

This paper considers the problem of estimating the product of two population means using the information on multi-auxiliary characters with double sampling the non-respondents. Classes of estimators are proposed for estimating P under two different situations [discussed by Rao (1986, 90)] using known population mean of multi-auxiliary characters. Further, this problem has been extended to the case when population means of the auxiliary characters are unknown and they are estimated on the basis

AN INVERSE LINEARIZATION MODEL FOR THE CHARACTERIZATION OF NON-CONTACT THERMOPILES

A thermopile is an electronic device that converts thermal energy into electrical energy by means of arrangements of thermocouples that are connected in series. In addition, optical filters restrict the wavelength that strikes the thermopile. One of the main advantages of using a thermopile is its sensitivity to infrared radiation, which allows implementing non-contact thermometers. However, the thermopile does not provide an absolute temperature value, but a value that is proportional to the

The modal truncation problem of non-classically damped systems is constantly encountered in the dynamic analysis of engineering. The present study is designed to calculate the frequency response functions of the non-classically damping systems accurately on account of the Neumann expansion theory and the frequency shifting technique. Considering the first and the second term influence of the Neumann expansion equations in the frequency response analysis of the viscoelastic systems, we could

BREATH ACETONE-BASED NON-INVASIVE DETECTION OF BLOOD GLUCOSE LEVELS

There has been a constant demand for the development of non-invasive, sensitive glucose sensor system that offers fast and real-time electronic readout of blood glucose levels. In this article, we propose a new system for detecting blood glucose levels by estimating the concentration of acetone in the exhaled breath. A TGS822 tin oxide (SnO2) sensor has been used to detect the concentration of acetone in the exhaled air. Acetone in exhaled breath showed a correlation with the blood glucose

Can ultrasound be helpful in selecting optimal management methods for pregnancies complicated by placental non-trophpblastic tumors?

Placental chorioangioma is the most common subtype of non-trophoblastic placental tumors. Other subtypes are very rare and usually associated with an uneventful course of pregnancy. Most chorioangiomas are small and of no clinical significance. Giant chorioangiomas may be associated with serious fetal and maternal complications. So far, no established ultrasound guidelines are available for the management of placental non-trophoblastic tumors. This may be attributed to the rarity of the disease

COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF POVERTY IN FAMILIES WITH A DISABLED CHILD AND FAMILIES  WITH NON-DISABLED CHILDREN IN POLAND  IN THE YEARS 2014 AND 2016

The presence of a child with disabilities in a family presents more challenging conditions than the presence of a non-disabled child. One of the difficulties is of financial nature. One of the parents often has to give up their job to care for the child, which shrinks the household income. At the same time, the family has higher expenses resulting from, e.g. costs of treatment. All this increases the risk of falling into poverty. The goal of this paper is to analyse the financial situation of

Seventeen patients with untreated severe OSA completed a 90-minute driving simulator task during mid-afternoon under two experimental conditions: prior normal habitual sleep (~8h) and prior sleep restriction (4h time in bed). Steering deviation and crash

Prevalence of cervical vertebrae anomalies in patients with cleft lip and palate

Objective: To investigate the prevalence of cervical vertebral anomalies (CVA) in a group of patients presenting with cleft lip and palate (CLP) and to compare with a non-cleft population. Material and methods: The sample comprised of 150 lateral cephalograms of non-syndromic patients with CLP and 150 non cleft age-matched controls. The age range of both groups covered 6 to 20 years. An expert radiologist blinded to the cleft status evaluated the cephalograms for CVA and categorised them into

Strategies for Combating Dark Networks

Our goal in this paper is to explore two generic approaches to disrupting dark networks: kinetic and nonkinetic. The kinetic approach involves aggressive and offensive measures to eliminate or capture network members and their supporters, while the non-kinetic approach involves the use of subtle, non-coercive means for combating dark networks. Two strategies derive from the kinetic approach: Targeting and Capacity-building. Four strategies derive from the non-kinetic approach: Institution

NON-METALLIC REINFORCEMENTS WITH DIFFERENT MODULI OF ELASTICITY AND SURFACES FOR CONCRETE STRUCTURES

reinforcement [9–11]. Such non ferrous bars provide excellent resistance to environmental factors such as freeze-thaw cycles, chemical attack, etc. [12]. Tensile strength and elastic modulus of FRP bars are governed mainly by the type of fibre, the volumetric ratio of fibres (usually 60–75 V%) and the angle between the fibres and the longitudinal axis of the bar. Tensile strengths of FRP bars are in the range of 450 to 3 500 N/mm2, while the Young’s moduli are between 35 000 and 580 000 N/mm2 and the

We argue that for the people of Koba Lima these concepts are exemplar modalities for engaging with borders and continuously re-working ideas of unity and division, of union and separation, from the mundane to the esoteric across phenomenal and non-phenomenal (noumenal) realms. Borders: Creation and Separation in Koba Lima Koba Lima are words of Tetun Terik, the language spoken in different parts of Timor-Leste and West
