Several studies have now demonstrated that the lymph node ratio (LNR), as a superior indicator of axillary tumor burden to the number of excised nodes. While, about the prognostic value of LNR on the the survival of elderly patients is limited. The aim of this retrospective multicenter study is to evaluate the prognostic value of lymph node ratio in elderly patients with node positive breast cancer. METHODS: Onehundredeightyfour patient with operable breast cancer, recruited from 17 institutions, were enrolled into the retrospectively study Eleven potential prognostic variables were chosen for analysis in this study Univariate and multivariate analyses were conducted to identify prognostic factors associated with survival. RESULT: Among the eleven variables of univariate analysis, four variables were identified to have prognostic significance for Overall survival (OS): patholo^c tumor size (T), No. oppositive nodes (N), LNR and estrogen receptor-positive (ER). Among the eleven variables of univariate analysis, two variables were identified to have prognostic significance for Disease-free survival (DFS): N and LNR. Multivariate analysis by Cox proportional hazard model showed that T, LNR and ER were considered independent prognostic factors for OS. Furthermore, LNR was considered independent prognostic factors for DFS. CONCLUSION: In conclusion, the LNR was associated with the prognostic importance for DFS and OS in elderly patients who were administered adjuvant treatments.

The fatty acid contents of five wild edible mushroom species (Amanita ceciliae, Armillaria mellea, Cantharellus cibarius, Chlorophyllum rhacodes and Rhizopogon roseolus) collected from different regions from Anatolia were determined. The fatty acids were identified and quantified by gas chromatography and studied using fruit bodies. Fatty acid composition varied among species. The dominant fatty acid in fruit bodies of all mushrooms was cis-linoleic acid (18:2). Percentage of cis-linoleic acid in species varied from 31.81 % to 57.70 %. The other major fatty acids were, respectively, cis-oleic, palmitic and stearic acids. Fatty acids analysis of the mushrooms showed that the unsaturated fatty acids were at higher concentrations than saturated fatty acids.

Chemical, microbiological, instrumental textural and sensorial attributes were determined for turkey breast meat samples cooked at 65 °C or 75 °C for three different extended cooking times (24 h, 36 h or 48 h). According to results obtained, there were no significant differences observed among the chemical compositions, instrumental textural and microbiological attributes of samples (P>0 05). When sensorial analyses scores of the samples are taken into account in terms of consumer preferences, no statistically significant difference was observed among samples. So it is concluded that shortest cooking period should be preferred in terms of saving for energy and cooking time. On the other hand, cooking for extended times like 36 or 48 hours, did not show any nugatory affect on eating and sensorial quality of turkey breast meat samples. © M. & H. Schaper GmbH & Co.

This study was undertaken to determine the effect of different chemical decontamination methods on the microbiological and sensory attributes of chicken liver during refrigerated storage (+4 ± 1 °C). Chicken liver samples were dipped into sterilized water (1 min), lactic acid (1.5%, 1 min or 5 min), acetic acid (1.5 %, 1 min or 5 min), trisodium phosphate (15 %, 15 min or 20 min) or were not treated (control). Microbiological analyses were carried out at 0, 2 and 4 days of storage. Also, sensorial attributes were evaluated by panelists. As result of the study, decontamination with acetic acid, lactic acid or trisodium phosphate could not substantially improve the microbiological quality of chicken liver during refrigerated storage. On the other hand, sensorial attributes of the samples were adversely affected by treatments except the treatments with acetic acid. © M. & H. Schaper GmbH & Co.

In this study, linear vibrations of an axially moving beam under non-ideal support conditions have been investigated. The main difference of this study from the other studies; the non-ideal clamped support allow minimal rotations and non-ideal simple support carry moment in minimal orders. Axially moving Euler-Bernoulli beam has simple and clamped support conditions that are discussed as combination of ideal and non-ideal boundary with weighting factor (k). Equations of the motion and boundary conditions have been obtained using Hamilton's Principle. Method of Multiple Scales, a perturbation technique, has been employed for solving the linear equations of motion. Linear equations of motion are solved and effects of different parameters on natural frequencies are investigated. Copyright © 2015 Techno-Press, Ltd.

The role of the sympathetic nervous system in medicine can be revealed by inducing degenerative changes in sympathetic neural pathways. Several methods of inducing peripheral lesions such as neural growth factor depletion, auto-immune and chemical destruction of the sympathetic chain and novel approaches as usage of immunotoxins and transgenic animals were used. Surgical ablation can be performed by open removal or electrocoagulation of the sympathetic chain, or minimally invasive procedures using stereotactic thermal or laser interruption. Chemical sympathectomies use alcohol or phenol injections to destroy the sympathetic chain temporarily. They are commonly performed for palmar or plantar hyperhidrosis, Buerger's disease and critical lower limb ischemia. Neuropathic pain is defined as pain initiated or caused by a primary lesion or dysfunction in the nervous system. Surgical and chemical sympatholyses may help to prevent it. The practice of chemical sympathectomy is still under investigation because of potentially important complications. Therefore, more experimental studies and clinical trials of sympathectomy are required to establish the overall effectiveness and potential risks of this procedure.

In organic food production the use of synthetic antifungal agents is prohibited for this reason organic food may be more susceptible to fungal contamination. In this study, a total of 235 samples of organic foods (maize flour, wheat flour, barley flour, rye flour, raisin, fig, prune, dried fruits and molasses) produced in Turkey were analyzed for possible contamination with aflatoxin, ochratoxin A (OTA) and fumonisin. A total of 159 organic food samples were analyzed for aflatoxin, in 14.46 % of these samples aflatoxin was detected. The concentrations of aflatoxin in cereals, dried fruits and molasses ranged from 0 to 42.73 μg/kg, 0 to 10.47 μg/kg and 0 to 29.3 μg/kg respectively. A total of 221 samples were analyzed for ochratoxin A and 43.43 % of these samples were contaminated with OTA. The concentrations of ochratoxin A in cereals, dried fruits and molasses ranged from 0 to 18.11 μg/kg, 0 to 34.35 μg/kg and 0 to 25.24 μg/kg respectively. A total of 225 samples were analyzed for fumonisin, in 24.88 % of the samples fumonisin was detected. The concentrations of fumonisin in cereals, dried fruits and molasses ranged from 0 to 1684 μg/kg, 0 to 1816 μg/kg and 0 to 1714 μg/kg. respectively. The results showed that organic foods maybe contaminated mycotoxins and effective organic antifungal agents must be used.
