Organ failure can be defined as a relevant concept of functional-anatomical condition of body structural change. Anatomical, functional disorders of the body are the expression of structural remodeling. The process is complex, including the first functional cell mass reduction (in particular, apoptosis and necrosis), and on the other hand the development of fibrosis process with a starting point at the extracellular matrix. Both mechanisms that take place are caused by etiological factors, enhanced, favoring the developer cytokines mediated by inflammatory processes such as premature death and functional constituent cells of the body; secondly the inflammation leads to fibrosis. The article review is a summary of the knowledge that exist at the level of the anatomical organ remodeling.

In view of increasing resilience and improving mitigation of disaster situations in a specified region, a tool was proposed, built and tested for monitoring new posts and connections on a specified set of web sites. The tool aims to discover any new post on the specified site and to determine if it includes one or several keywords, or satisfies one of several logic conditions. The application is simple enough to run on any computer and can easily be transposed to run on mobile devices. The application is described and preliminary results presented and discussed. © 2015 IEEE.

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is the most common chronic inflammatory joint disease. RA likely develops beginning with genetic risk. Investigating of preclinical period of RA will lead to understanding the relationships between genetic and environmental factors. The recent studies confirm the polygenic contribution of the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) to RA. Various genetic factors involved in the pathogenesis of RA have been discovered. HLA genes contribute only a portion of the genetic susceptibility to RA. There is also evidence for a contribution of non-class II genes to susceptibility. Non-HLA genes are also involved in disease pathogenesis, and identifying them remains a challenge. The association between RA and certain MHC alleles may be important in the pathogenesis of RA. In the future, research into genetic factors correlated with the severity of RA is expected to yield interesting and hopefully clinically relevant results. In this review we present the current data supporting the existence of susceptibility gene for RA.

This case has multiple anatomical variants of the inferior vena cava and its branches which determine the appearance of associated arterial abnormalities. The study has been performed on a female corpse, aged average 60, with no other morphological changes of the blood vessels or retroperitoneal viscera. The method we used was classical dissection. We described a variant of the inferior vena cava formation and persistence of bilateral double renal arteries with changes of arterio-venous relations in the renal pedicles. We established correlations between the embryological development of the inferior vena cava and the renal vessels and we explained its appearance mechanisms. The peculiar aspect of the study is that anomalies in development of the inferior vena cava system have determined the disturbance of successive development of renal arteries during "ascensus renis" process. We consider important for the surgeon to have knowledge of possible anatomical variants of large retroperitoneal vessels in order to have a clear interpretation of the CT Angiography and Magnetic Resonance Angiography in such cases.

Creating a growing volume of agricultural products based on increased productivity, in order to meet the worldwide growing need of food products, represents a challenging core goal in agricultural policy of most states. This study presents the results of an empirical investigation forecasting the increasing of agricultural productivity up to 2018 for 111 Romanian agricultural SMEs in the North-East region by using a forecast model whose algorithm is based on the Markov chains theory. According to the research results, this study states a positive relationship between the forecasting of increasing agricultural productivity based on biotechnologies and sustainable development. © 2014 University of Bucharest.
