claims to consume only dry salted fish.
Presence of symptoms in positive patients vary from none to only GI to mainly allergic ones. Positive patients from the control group, instead, show an iCAP value of 0.51 KUA/L and 1.57 KUA/L and reported to eat respectively raw and smoked fish (C1) and raw fish (C2). They report to not suffer from any GI symptoms or allergic ones ( Table 6 ).
Positivity of IgE to Anisakis allergens showed no significant difference between the two groups.
These results totally differ from those obtained in a similar study

In recent years several electrical wound management systems, so called electroceuticals, have been introduced claiming an induced electrical response in the wounded tissue. Some have external current and voltage sources while others have internal constructions aiming at creating necessary therapeutic currents. We investigate two representative electroceuticals by mapping out their electrical field landscapes using a previously developed skin model within a numerical simulation scheme. We find very strong fields from the electroceuticals of the order of 1 kV/m amenable for electrotaxic influence on pertinent cell types for wound healing. Current densities can locally be as high as 1 A/cm2.

also have eliminated the unique transformation toughening that gives zirconia its toughness and resistance to fracture ( 63 ). Although, the resistance to fracture of cubic zirconia is higher than that of porcelain-veneered crowns or lithium disilicate restorations ( 64 , 65 ), this ceramic is indicated in less-bearing clinical situations ( 66 ). The manufacturers claim that the great innovation in the formula was developed at the powder stage, before discs or blocks for CAD-CAM technology were designed.

Honey bee colonies are often infected with Nosema apis and Nosema ceranae which cause adult honey bee disease called nosemosis. All honey bee colony members can be infected with these species. In addition, it is claimed to be the main cause of honey bee winter losses in many countries. Nosema spores are expected to resistant the environmental conditions and their infectivity continues for a long time because of long-term durability of fungal spores. In this study, the viability of Nosema spores were investigated in terms of storage situations under laboratory conditions. Honey bee samples that were collected from apiaries in 2011 were investigated to detect the presence of Nosema species with real-time PCR amplification studies. After determination of Nosema species, each sample was divided in two groups. One of these groups was used to find Nosema spore concentration. Nosema solutions were divided and stored at both -20°C and +4°C. The spore concentration was measured every year in the period 2011-2015. Other group of honey bee samples was also stored at -20°C and every year was used for Nosema spore counting. Furthermore, it was examined the infectivity of Nosema spores with sugar solutions which obtained each sample using cage experiment techniques. According to results, when we compare the solutions annually, there is no change at Nosema spore concentration of the solution in -20°C and honeybee samples in -20°C. But reduction was seen at Nosema spore concentration of the solution in +4°C. Nosema spore infectivity tests revealed that infectivity of Nosema spores has not changed significantly between 2011 and 2015. This is the first time mixed Nosema spores found more infective than one-type spore after prolonged exposure to different conditions.

I first started thinking about bioimpedance many years ago in the context of instruments claiming to be able to assess body fat, from measurements of the electrical resistance between hands and feet. The basis of the technique is that the major components of the body are firstly muscle, which has a low resistivity, and then fat which has a high resistivity. If you regard the body as a cylinder then the total resistance will depend upon the length and the area of cross-section of the body and also the average resistivity of the muscle and fat. You can estimate
practical tissue-mimicking material for soft biological tissues 29.
In this paper we explore the mechanism by which the passive electrical properties of a quasi-biological phantom of soft tissues are altered by compression. We postulate that exodus of the conductive fluid from the sample results in a decrease in the sample’s overall admittance. Furthermore, we contend that this decrease in admittance is intrinsically related to the stress relaxation function of the sample as it is under compression. In testing the validity of this claim, we model tofu as a Maxwellian

any type of tissue has a specific electrical-mechanical properties based model. Since tumors in soft tissues change both the electrical and mechanical properties of tissue, it is postulated that healthy and tumorous tissues have different electrical-mechanical correlation. Thus, by finding this relationship and model, the structure, type and abnormality of the tissue can be estimated. Therefore, presence of inhomogeneity in the soft tissue electrical-mechanical behavior may help develop a tumor detection technique.
To test the validity of this claim, various types
