Papers on medical subjects have been published since the first issue of the journal Prilozi in 1969, totalling a number of of 957 (nine hundred and fifty seven) papers have been published in Prilozi. Two hundred and twenty nine cover subjects on natural sciences and mathematics, and 728 (seven hundred and twenty eight) subjects on medical sciences. So far, 2017 No. XXXVIII-2, 622 (six hundred and twenty two) papers published in Prilozi are in Pubmed.

Globalization era starting in full in the 1990s brought entirely new conditions for epizootic disease spreading and control at global level. Significantly intensified global trade in animals and their products without any effective sanitary filter has facilitated mass worldwide spreading of the pathogens. Huge daily flow of exported non-pathogen-free animal commodities has led to rapid deterioration of global epizootiological situation. Never in the history did global occurrence of animal infections worsen as in present time when the amount of scientific knowledge is the largest in human history. Thus an important gap occurred in the structure of life sciences. No institution has yet started to fill this gap with missing scientific branch dealing with planet-wide epizootiological triad (animals - pathogens - environment) as with one compact dynamic biological system within the biocoenosis envelope surrounding the Earth. There has been an urgent need to develop new epizootiological methods in order to achieve desirable results in the protection of animal population health covering our entire planet. The author therefore used the opportunity provided by ResearchGate network. This made it possible to start a “Global Epizootiology” project as a new scientific branch dedicated to population health and epizootic disease control of all species of animal kingdom in the whole world. Its definition, objectives and content have been formulated. In conclusion, anthropocentric priorities have to be the protection of world human population against diseases transmissible from other species and global production of safe food of animal origin. During the first year ResearchGate Global Epizootiology Project reached 1,159 publications and update reads.
Nanoparticles are widely used for various therapeutic treatments. Proteins have the advantage of being naturally occurring, with relative lack of toxicity and antigenicity, but easy biodegradability and potent ability to bind other compounds. Proteins have been produced in nanoformulations, which have been made by various methods including desolvation and precipitation. Biopolymeric nanoparticles including proteins are used in delivery of genes and drugs, and in tissue engineering. Protein nanoparticulate drug delivery systems are used to treat several diseases because of their high drug-binding capacity, biocompatibility, nutritional value, stability, and potent site-specific action. Among the various proteins, casein and albumin nanoparticles are used widely as nanocarriers for various therapeutic drugs.
To review the types of nanoparticles and their role in therapeutic applications, and the important role of casein and albumin nanoparticles in cancer therapy.
A literature search based on nanoparticles, their types, and their roles in medical applications was conducted using websites including Google Scholar, SpringerLink, ResearchGate, and the U.S. National Institutes of Health’s National Library of Medicine’s National Center for Biotechnology Information PubMed database including PubMed Central covering from 2000 to 2016.
Nanoparticles, especially albumin and casein had been found effective drug delivery systems.
Protein based nanoparticles such as albumin and casein nanoparticles are widely used for targeting cancers and can be used as effective vehicles for the delivery of various anticancer drugs.
Background/Aim: Molar incisor hypomineralization (MIH) is a qualitative defect of systemic origin, affecting permanent first molars and often permanent incisors. The treatment modalities can include, amongst others, fissure sealants for prevention of dental caries and composite restorations. Both require adhesion to tooth structure. The aim of this study was to review the literature on the adhesion to enamel affected by MIH.
Material and Methods: A search of PupMed/Medline, ResearchGate and Google Scholar was performed and limited between 2003, when the judgement criteria for MIH were set, and 2016. Thirty-three papers were considered relevant to the subject including five in vivo and six in vitro studies. Studies involving less than ten teeth were excluded.
Results: A four-year clinical trial showed that the application of a total-etch 2-step adhesive system prior to sealant placement is superior to the etch-seal technique. Despite the high success rate of composite restorations shown in three clinical longitudinal studies, there are conflicting results over self-etch being superior to total etch adhesive systems. Pretreating the enamel surface, prior to the adhesive system, with fluoride preventive solutions could reduce the mikroleakage under orthodontic brackets. Three in vitro studies provide inconsistent data about NaOCl pretreating potentials to improve adhesion of composite restorations. Resin infiltration, prior to resin restorations, could improve the microhardness of defected enamel, which may lead to increased bond strength, especially in combination with NaOCl pretreatment.
Conclusions: Adhesion to enamel affected by molar incisor hypomeralization is inferior compared to normal enamel. Sealants applied with the etch-bond-seal technique have greater retention than with the etch-seal technique. Further research is required to provide evidence of the effectiveness of the adhesive system and pretreatment to achieve optimal bonding to MIH.
