Targeted pharmacological correction is used extensively in medical practice today. 3,3-Diindolylmethane (DIM) is known as a substance with various anticancer properties. An interim study of the efficacy of a new drug Infemin on the basis of diindolylmethane (DIM) with improved bioavalability has been conducted.The clinical trial had a multicenter, randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind design and was carried out in two parallel groups. The interim analysis of data included 21 patients diagnosed with a high-grade prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia (PIN). Group 1 (11 patients) received Infemin in a dose of 900mg of DIM a day, and group 2 (10 patients) received placebo. To assess the efficacy of therapy, the analysis of morphological index (MI) changes based on the results of histological examinations of prostate biopsy specimens was performed, and a proportion of patients with persistent PIN in 12months after Infemin initiation was calculated. Researchers also evaluated prostate size, urodynamic parameters (Qmax, Qave, Vres), IPSS, and QoL (quality of life) indices and International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF) at 3, 6, 9, and 12months after the Infemin administration start.After 12months of treatment in the Infemin group, MI decreased from 0.50 to 0.08, while in the placebo group, it increased from 0.27 to 0.58; the difference between the groups was statistically significant (p=0.0003, Mann-Whitney test). In 45.5% of patients in the Infemin group, a complete regression of PIN was also observed, while in the placebo group, PIN regression was not observed in any patients (p=0.053, Yates corrected chi-square). Study results in the Infemin group show improvement of maximal urinary flow rate Qmax (53.3% increase compared to the initial value); however, the statistical significance was not reached (p=0.180, Mann-Whitney test) due to the small sample size. Evaluation of other urodynamic parameters, prostate volume, quality of life, symptoms reflecting urination disorder, and erectile dysfunction symptoms did not reveal significant differences between the Infemin and placebo groups either which is probably due to the small sample size.Theintermediate results of the 21 patientsin this multicenter, randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind studyshow that Infemin may be a promising drug candidate in patients with high-grade PIN.www.chictr.org.cnChiCTR-INR-15007496.

In order to create a cost-effective,suitable for large-scale application technology on forming a layer of a wide-band “window” for the thin-film photovoltaic converters based on cadmium sulfide and telluride we have carried out experimental studies of the dependence of optical properties and crystalline structure on temperature of the cadmium sulfide films deposition obtained by magnetron sputtering with direct current. By the two-channel optical spectroscopy method it has revealed that the cadmium sulfide film deposition at a temperature of 160 °C allows creating layers with band gap of 1.41 eV that is close to the value typical for single crystals,and the density of the photon flux passing through the cadmium sulfide layer in the cadmium telluride photosensitivity spectral range at a level 37.0 W nm cm-2. These two parameters determine the amount of optical loss of film photovoltaic converters based on cadmium telluride sulfide with the back configuration in the wide-band “window” layer. Using X-ray diffraction methods it was demonstrated that by increasing the deposition temperature from 100 °C to 160 °C,the growth of the size of coherent scattering regions,and decrease in the macrodeformation level have a decisive impact on the reduction of the optical losses in the CdS films formed on glass substrates. According to the elemental analysis results with further increase of the deposition temperature to 230 °C the experimentally observed increase in optical losses of cadmium sulphide films occurs as a result of thermally activated depletion of these layers by a volatile sulphur component. © 2016,International Journal of Pharmacy and Technology.

The presented paper discusses opportunities for development of a system of forecast, diagnostics, analysis and evaluation of risks of accidents at dangerous production facilities, including pipelines. It is demonstrated that analysis of durability, life-time and reliability of fuel and energy and oil and gas industries must be based on evaluation of stress-strain state with maximum accuracy by means of non-destructive testing (NDT) and diagnostic engineering (DE), including development of automated systems for engineering monitoring. That problem can be successfully solved using experience of development of on-board life-time meter (OSM) of an aircraft (with changes in calculation procedures for application at pipeline equipment) and special type of strain gauges (with implementation of polycrystalline Samarium monosulfide (SmS) films).
