Human echinococcosis in Bulgaria: a comparative epidemiological analysis. (1/159)

The present article describes the importance of human echinococcosis as a public health problem in Bulgaria, outlines the control measures carried out and evaluates comparatively the situation over three periods spanning 46 years (1950-1995). During the first period (1950-62), a total of 6469 new surgically confirmed cases of hydatid disease were recorded in Bulgaria, with an annual incidence of 6.5 per 100,000 population, and the infestation rate in domestic animals and dogs was high. Echinococcosis was endemic throughout the country. The organization of a control campaign, initiated in 1960, led to a considerable improvement in the situation during the second period (1971-82). Morbidity among humans gradually decreased, with an average incidence of 2.0 per 100,000, and the proportion of infected animals also fell. The distribution of echinococcosis was characterized as sporadic or of low endemicity. During the third period (1983-95), owing to administrative irregularities and economic changes, funds for supporting the campaign were reduced and control structures were dismantled. As a result, the incidence rose to 3.3 per 100,000. Echinococcosis again became endemic, in some regions hyperendemic. The findings provide convincing evidence that cessation of control measures or reduction of campaign activity can lead to intensification in the transmission of Echinococcus granulosus and to a resurgence in echinococcosis to previous levels.  (+info)

Patterns of smoking in Bulgaria. (2/159)

BACKGROUND: Although the rate of smoking-related deaths in Bulgaria is still relatively low, in international terms, it has been rising rapidly. This is likely to become worse in the future as Bulgaria faces growing pressure from transnational tobacco companies. There is, however, little information on patterns of smoking, which is necessary for development of effective policies to tackle tobacco consumption. OBJECTIVE: To describe the pattern of smoking in Bulgaria and its relationship with sociodemographic factors. DESIGN: Multivariate analysis of data on patterns of tobacco consumption from a multi-stage nationwide survey of 1550 adults. SETTING: Bulgaria, in 1997. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE: Prevalence of current cigarette smoking. RESULTS: 38.4% of men and 16.7% of women smoke. Smoking rates are strongly associated with age, with 58% of men and 30% of women aged 30-39 smoking whereas only 5% of men aged 70 years and older and almost no women of this age smoke. Smoking is more common in cities, among those who are widowed or divorced, or who do not own their home. There is no clear association with household income or, for men, with education, although there is a suggestion that smoking may be more common among more highly educated women. CONCLUSIONS: The observed pattern of smoking indicates the need for a robust policy to tackle smoking in Bulgaria, especially among the young in large cities, informed by a better understanding of why smoking rates vary among different groups.  (+info)

Health hazards in the production and processing of some fibers, resins, and plastics in Bulgaria. (3/159)

Results of the toxicological studies of working conditions, general and professional morbidity, and complex examinations carried out on workers engaged in the production of polyamides, polyacrylonitrile fibers, polyester fibers and poly (vinyl chloride) resin, urea-formaldehyde glue, glass fibre materials and polyurethane resins are given. An extremely high occupational hazard for workers in the production of poly (vinyl chloride) resin and porous materials from polyurethane resins and urea-formaldehyde glue has been established. Cases of vinyl chloride disease, poisoning from formaldehyde, isocyanates, and styrene were noted. Prophylactic measures were taken in Bulgaria to lessen the occupational hazard in the productions as set forth included limitation of the work day to 6 hr, free food, additional bonus and leave, and annual physical examinations of workers.  (+info)

Q fever in Bulgaria and Slovakia. (4/159)

As a result of dramatic political and economic changes in the beginning of the 1990s, Q-fever epidemiology in Bulgaria has changed. The number of goats almost tripled; contact between goat owners (and their families) and goats, as well as goats and other animals, increased; consumption of raw goat milk and its products increased; and goats replaced cattle and sheep as the main source of human Coxiella burnetii infections. Hundreds of overt, serologically confirmed human cases of acute Q fever have occurred. Chronic forms of Q fever manifesting as endocarditis were also observed. In contrast, in Slovakia, Q fever does not pose a serious public health problem, and the chronic form of infection has not been found either in follow-ups of a Q-fever epidemic connected with goats imported from Bulgaria and other previous Q-fever outbreaks or in a serologic survey. Serologic diagnosis as well as control and prevention of Q fever are discussed.  (+info)

Patterns of alcohol consumption in Bulgaria. (5/159)

Alcohol is increasingly being recognized as a major cause of the greater burden of disease and premature death in eastern Europe than in the west. This requires a robust policy response but, in most countries in the region, there is little empirical data on patterns of consumption on which to base such a response. Until now, there has been no information on prevalence of drinking among the Bulgarian population. This paper describes a survey that seeks to address this weakness by describing the pattern of drinking in Bulgaria and its relationship with socio-demographic factors. It uses a multivariate analysis of data on patterns of alcohol consumption from a multi-stage nationwide survey of 1550 adults in Bulgaria, in 1997 which found that overall 50.7% of men and 13.6% of women drink at least weekly. In both sexes, drinking is least common among the elderly and those living in villages. It is also less common among those reporting their financial status as poor. Muslims are less likely to drink than are orthodox Christians. Drinking is most common among those living in cities, with higher education and high incomes. Heavy drinking, defined as 80 g/day or more, is rare among women, but is ascribed to 18.2% of men. Heavy drinking was much more common among men living in Sofia and was less common among those whose financial situation was poor. At the levels of drinking reported, it can be expected that alcohol is making a substantial contribution to the burden of disease and premature mortality in Bulgaria. A coordinated, effective policy response is required. Although some of the legal prerequisites are in place, they are poorly enforced and there is no overall strategy to address this issue.  (+info)

A founder mutation in the GK1 gene is responsible for galactokinase deficiency in Roma (Gypsies). (6/159)

Galactokinase deficiency is an inborn error in the first step of galactose metabolism. Its major clinical manifestation is the development of cataracts in the first weeks of life. It has also been suggested that carriers of the deficiency are predisposed to presenile cataracts developing at age 20-50 years. Newborn screening data suggest that the gene frequency is very low worldwide but is higher among the Roma in Europe. Since the cloning of the galactokinase gene (GK1) in 1995, only two disease-causing mutations, both confined to single families, have been identified. Here we present the results of a study of six affected Romani families from Bulgaria, where index patients with galactokinase deficiency have been detected by the mass screening. Genetic linkage mapping placed the disease locus on 17q, and haplotype analysis revealed a small conserved region of homozygosity. Using radiation hybrid mapping, we have shown that GK1 is located in this region. The founder Romani mutation identified in this study is a single nucleotide substitution in GK1 resulting in the replacement of the conserved proline residue at amino acid position 28 with threonine (P28T). The P28T carrier rate in this endogamous population is approximately 5%, suggesting that the mutation may be an important cause of early childhood blindness in countries with a sizeable Roma minority.  (+info)

Birthweight and infant mortality in Bulgaria's transition crisis. (7/159)

Between 1988 and 1991, years of political and economic crisis, Bulgaria reported a 25% increase in infant mortality. From 1991 to 1995, the rate then dropped slightly. Analysis of detailed unpublished vital statistics shows that the reported increase could not have been a result of more complete reporting of early neonatal mortality for very low-weight births. Old reporting practices continue unchanged. Rather, these statistics reveal an increase in the proportion of low-weight births, combined with rising death rates, particularly for low-weight births in the postneonatal period, but also for normal-weight babies.  (+info)

Primary and combined resistance to four antimicrobial agents in Helicobacter pylori in Sofia, Bulgaria. (8/159)

The aim of this study was to evaluate the primary and combined resistance of Helicobacter pylori against four antimicrobial agents by a screening agar method (SAM) and a modified disk diffusion method (MDDM) alone and in combination. Pre-treatment H. pylori isolates from 192 consecutive H. pylori-positive patients at three hospitals in Sofia were investigated. MDDM was performed with disks containing metronidazole (5 microg), clarithromycin (15 microg) or erythromycin (15 microg), ciprofloxacin (5 microg) and tetracycline (30 microg). Resistance was determined by an inhibitory zone of <16 mm for metronidazole and < or =30 mm for other agents tested. The cut-off concentrations used to define resistance by SAM were: metronidazole >8 mg/L, clarithromycin >2 mg/L, tetracycline >4 mg/L and ciprofloxacin >1 mg/L. Primary resistance rates in H. pylori were: metronidazole 28.6%, clarithromycin 9.7%, metronidazole + clarithromycin 2.8%, ciprofloxacin 3.9%, metronidazole + ciprofloxacin 2.3%, tetracycline 1.9% and metronidazole + tetracycline 1.2%. Among metronidazole-resistant isolates, combined resistance to clarithromycin, ciprofloxacin and tetracycline was present in 11.4% (5 of 44 strains), 8.3% (3 of 36) and 4.9% (2 of 41), respectively. Two strains exhibited triple resistance to macrolides, metronidazole and either ciprofloxacin or tetracycline. Three tetracycline-resistant strains were detected in 1999; however, resistance rates to other agents were relatively stable during the 6 years. Primary H. pylori resistance to metronidazole is moderate and resistance to clarithromycin and to ciprofloxacin is considerable in comparison with results in most other countries. The alarming appearance of strains harbouring combined resistance or multiresistance provides the motivation for continued surveillance of H. pylori at global, national and regional levels.  (+info)

Bulgaria was founded as a state in 681 AD and in its development had gone through stages associated with large ups and downs. In modern epoch the third Bulgarian state was restored on July 1st 1878. (Berlin Peace Treaty), and on September 22nd 1908 Principality of Bulgaria was declared an independent state. After the World War II Bulgaria fell under the influence of the Soviet Union and in 1946 Bulgaria became a Peoples Republic with one-party government (the Bulgarian Communist Party), having taken the Soviet model of planned economy with nationalization of the enterprises and collectivization of agriculture. Due to ongoing changes in the late Twentieth Century in the entire Eastern Europe and public pressure inside the country, Bulgaria began a political system transition from Communism and planned economy to Democracy and free market economy (in 1989). On April 2nd 2004 Bulgaria became a NATO member and on January 1st 2007 joined the European Union ...

While Bulgaria has not formally joined the exchange rate mechanism, the ±15% floating band permitted within ERM II is less restrictive than Bulgarias current strict peg of 1.95583 BGN to 1 EUR. The lev has been pegged to the euro since its launch, and prior to that was pegged on par to the German Mark. While the currency board which pegs Bulgaria to the euro has been seen as beneficial to the country fulfilling criteria so quickly,[22] the ECB has pressured Bulgaria to drop it as it did not know how to let a country using a currency board join the euro. The Prime Minister has stated the desire to keep the currency board until the euro was adopted. However, factors such as a high inflation, an unrealistic exchange rate with the euro and the countrys low productivity are negatively affected by the system.[23]. Simeon Dyankov, Bulgarias then-finance minister, said in September 2009 that Bulgaria planned to enter ERM II in November 2009,[24][1][2][3] but this was delayed. It was then delayed ...
The outbreaks of African Swine Fever in Bulgaria have resulted in more than 100 000 pigs being culled in the northern part of the country, Bulgarian National Television (BNT) said on the evening of August 1.. Estimates from before the outbreak of African Swine Fever put the number of registered pigs in Bulgaria at a maximum 600 000.. The Bulgarian Food Safety Agency has begun checks in small towns in northern Bulgaria to see if farmers have voluntarily got rid of their pigs, the report said.. The deadline for doing so in districts in that part of Bulgaria expired on July 31. Failure to comply means a fine of 100 to 1000 leva (about 50 to 500 euro).. Efforts by veterinary authorities in Rousse, the largest city on Bulgarias Danube border, are currently aimed at controlling the outbreak of African Swine Fever in the town of Byala, where a sick pig was found in a farmyard. In the area, 140 animals will be euthanised at six unregistered small farms.. However, employees of the Regional Food Safety ...
SOFIA, Bulgaria - In an effort to boost vaccination rates among a skeptical public, Bulgaria has opened up COVID-19 inoculations to all who want them.. On Friday, Bulgarian Prime Minister Boiko Borissov told the nation he was creating green corridors where any Bulgarian resident could line up for the vaccine.. Bulgaria first began administering the shots on Dec. 27. But before the mass vaccination campaign began Saturday, Bulgaria had one of the lowest vaccination rates in Europe, with fewer than 1% of Bulgarians having taken the first dose and fewer than half of those fully vaccinated as of Feb. 14, according to the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control.. In a poll of 1,000 Bulgarians conducted by Alpha Research and cited by The Sofia Globe, some 52 percent said they did not intend to be immediately vaccinated.. Since the mass vaccination campaign began, more than 30,000 people have received a first shot, according to local media reports.. Thousands stood in line for hours over ...
The Bulgars, a Central Asian Turkic tribe, merged with the local Slavic inhabitants in the late 7th century to form the first Bulgarian state. In succeeding centuries, Bulgaria struggled with the Byzantine Empire to assert its place in the Balkans, but by the end of the 14th century the country was overrun by the Ottoman Turks. Northern Bulgaria attained autonomy in 1878 and all of Bulgaria became independent from the Ottoman Empire in 1908. Having fought on the losing side in both World Wars, Bulgaria fell within the Soviet sphere of influence and became a Peoples Republic in 1946. Communist domination ended in 1990, when Bulgaria held its first multiparty election since World War II and began the contentious process of moving toward political democracy and a market economy while combating inflation, unemployment, corruption, and crime. The country joined NATO in 2004 and the EU in 2007 ...

Six years after joining the European Union, Bulgaria and Romania have the lowest absorption rate of European structural and cohesion funds from all EU-27 countries. Moreover, as of February 2013, Bulgaria has absorbed three times more structural funds than Romania. This paper seeks to unpack the concept of absorption capacity by examining the potential factors associated with Bulgarias and Romanias low absorption rates. This is an under-researched area, particularly for Central and Eastern European states, with few definitions advanced by the literature (Brusis 2002; Sumpikova 2003; Horvat & Maier 2005; Jaenike 2011). This paper addresses the following research questions: What are the factors that determine these countries low absorption capacity? Given Bulgarias and Romanias similar integration path and political, social and economic configurations - what may explain the variation between the two cases? Discussions on the impact that cohesion policies have had on new member states ...
This Selected Issues paper examines inflation dynamics in Bulgaria from January 2012 to February 2015 and highlights some stylized facts about inflation in the country. January 2012 to February 2015 is the most relevant period for identifying factors contributing to recent deflation in Bulgaria, as well as their relative importance. Regression analysis suggests that during this period the inward spillover of low inflationary pressure from the European Union to Bulgaria has been the most significant factor, which was further exacerbated by consecutive electricity price cuts in 2013 and fast-falling global commodity prices, especially since late 2014.

Bulgarian is a South Slavic language, thus closer to Serbo-Croatian and Slovenian than to Russian or Polish but still retaining similarities to all. Spoken by over 9.5 million people, it is the national language of Republic of Bulgaria. It is also spoken by Bulgarian minorities in Yugoslavia and the Western Balkans, and Moldova, and language still in use by many immigrants of Bulgarian origin in Argentina, Canada, Germany, Netherlands, United Kingdom, and U.S.A. Linguists do not agree as to whether Macedonian is a dialect of Bulgarian. Generally Yugoslavs disagree, while Bulgarians say that it is. The spoken languages are mutually intelligible for the most part, although their Cyrillic alphabets have diverged somewhat, with Macedonians writing system resembling that of Serbo-Croatian.
The Council notes that Bulgaria has continued the reform of the judicial system by improving the rules for appointments, training and appraisals within the judiciary. Bulgaria also strengthened legislation on conflict of interest and continued a structural reform within the judiciary and the police, notably by taking a decision to establish a specialised court for organised crime cases and starting the reform of police investigations. For the first time within the last four years The Council take such a standpoint.. Commissions assessment also points to important challenges.

A total of 280 unrelated males from the three largest population groups in Bulgaria: Bulgarians, Bulgarian Turks and Gypsies, were analyzed for seven Y-chromosome STRs (DYS19, DYS389I, DYS389II, DYS390, DYS391, DYS392 and DYS393). Comparison of the allele frequency distributions revealed significant differences between the three ethnic groups which were confirmed with haplotype analysis. This permits us to suggest that population differentiation should be taken into account in forensic case analysis and paternity testing in Bulgaria.

They dont need to as a result of their nation is a member of the EU. Bulgarian mail order brides are in search of marriage, however they are not on the lookout for a visa or a passport. You have to fulfill her dad and mom, even when youre simply her boyfriend. Most Asian women would solely introduce a person to their mother and father after they call him husband…in their thoughts. Even although lots of Bulgarian women have Asian genes, they dont have this rule.. Chalga girls are like Chavs within the UK, just with out the stomach fats and the rotten tooth. Bulgarian men want to show off the little wealth they have. In other phrases, as soon as Boiko gets a used automotive with three tires, he tries to use it to impress the ladies. And as quickly as Lyubomir gets a pair of denims, he has to tell each girl he meets that they have been actually costly. I found 678 girls from Bulgaria between 18 and 39.. Bulgarian beauties take plenty of time dressing themselves and making sure they look ...

GIPSON DISSERTATION AWARD. During 2011-2013 the American Research Center in Sofia held an annual competition for its Gipson Dissertation Award, whereby an outstanding Bulgarian doctoral dissertation was translated into English and published for an international audience. Generously financed by the Tianaderrah Foundation (Nellie and Robert Gipson), the theme of each competition was devoted to a different topic. Chronologically, the study fell anywhere between Antiquity and World War II.. The competition was open to Bulgarian scholars who defended their doctoral dissertation at any of the accredited universities or institutes in Bulgaria between 2004 and 2013 and currently resided in Bulgaria. The applications were judged by an international jury of experts. The author of the winning dissertation submitted a revised version, which took into account the recommendations of the jury..

Downloadable! Despite the importance and potential role of entrepreneurship for economies in Central and Eastern Europe, little attention has been devoted to identifying which factors contribute to the entrepreneurship in the region. The purpose of the present study is twofold. First, there is a comparison of entrepreneurial orientation in Bulgarian family and non-family firms. Second, there is an examination of which individual, organizational and environmental factors underlie differences in entrepreneurial orientation between family and non-family firms. The findings reveal that several organizational and environmental factors are conductive for pursuing entrepreneurship within family and non-family firms. Lower environmental dynamism, smaller firm size and the lack of foreign ownership account partially for lower entrepreneurial orientation in family firms. The paper provides a discussion of implications for practitioners and suggestions for future research.

Boiko Borisov, once a bodyguard to his countrys leaders, will become Bulgarias next prime minister, after winning a landslide election. WSJs Joe Parkinson reports from Sofia.
On the 24th of July 2007, 5 Bulgarian nurses and 1 Palestinian doctor were released from Libya after having been jailed for more than 8 years [1]. They were accused by the Libyan government of intentionally infecting over 400 children by injecting them with HIV at the state-run Al-Fateh Childrens Hospital in Benghazi, Libya in 1998. The medics claimed their innocence in this matter but some confessed under the extreme pressure by being repeatedly tortured [2]. Through the years, their case was seen by several courts and the medics were subjected to numerous trials in which they were sentenced to death by fire squadron twice; first by the Benghazi Appeals court and then by the Libyan Supreme court. However, later on, the sentence was reduced to life imprisonment and they were released to Bulgaria by the High Judicial Council. This was after the families of the victims accepted compensation worth $1 million per child [3]. The Bulgarian President went much further by completely revoking their sentences

I stayed just short of a month. It would have been difficult for me to be happy there, despite the kind nature of the Bulgarian people and the good food. The wealth a western salary provides in Bulgaria doesnt matter - in Sofia everyone is poor, because whenever you step outside your luxurius home youre still in Sofia. Returning to Oslo became the only sane option, and this time my choice felt right.. Steve Jobs, in an inspiring speech given to graduate students at Standford University, delivered the following memorable quote:. Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.. A simple idea, yet so difficult to internalize. But its true, its powerful and its important to understand. Sheath your intellect, if only for a moment, and listen to your instinct. Then you will know what path is yours, even if the destination still eludes you.. Perhaps my little adventure in Sofia will become meaningful when ...

1. TOMISLAV (-[925/30]). No indication has been found whether Tomislav was related to the previous dukes of Croatia who are set out in Chapter 1. He succeeded in [905/10] as TOMISLAV Duke of Croatia. The Historia Salonitanorum of Thomas Archdeacon of Split names Tamislavi ducis in 914, when Iohannes was archbishop of Split[53]. Pannonian Croatia requested help from Tomislav Duke of Dalmatian Croatia against the Hungarians whom he defeated, established a lasting border along the Drava River in the early 900s, and annexed what remained of Pannonian Croatia[54]. In 923, Byzantium negotiated an alliance with Tomislav against Bulgaria, and awarded him the honorary title of proconsul. This provoked Symeon I Tsar of Bulgaria into attacking Croatia, but Tomislav defeated him in [926][55]. Pope John X wrote to Tamislao Croatorum et Michaeli duci Chulmorum nec non Joanni Salonitan ecclesi archiepiscopo dated to [925][56].

Title:Antimicrobial Activity of Molluscan Hemocyanins from Helix and Rapana Snails. VOLUME: 17 ISSUE: 3. Author(s):Pavlina Dolashka, Aleksander Dolashki, Jozef Van Beeumen, Matthias Floetenmeyer, Lyudmila Velkova, Stefan Stevanovic and Wolfgang Voelter.

Abstract:For the first time the antimicrobial activities of hemocyanins from the molluscs Rapana venosa (RvH) and Helix aspersa (HaH) have been tested. From the hemolymph of the garden snail H. aspersa one structural subunit (βc-HaH ) and eight functional units (FUs, βc-HaH-a to βc-HaH-h) were isolated, and their N-terminal sequences and molecular weights, ranging between 45 and 65 kDa, determined. The antimicrobial test of the hemocyanins against ...
The Thracians are the most powerful people in the world, except, of course, for the Indians, wrote the fifth-century B.C. Greek historian Herodotus. In citing the Thracians, he was referring to the group of tribes who inhabited a large part of the Balkans and parts of Western Anatolia-from the Aegean to the Carpathian Mountains, and as far as the Caucasus-from approximately the twelfth century B.C. to the sixth century A.D. Despite their fearsome reputation, relatively little is known about them. Few examples of their writing survive, and what other information we have comes from Greek literary sources and Thracian burial mounds. Many of these mounds have been excavated since the end of the Cold War, when their former lands, Bulgaria and Romania in particular, became accessible to well-trained archaeologists and modern methodology.. This past November, archaeologist Diana Gergova of the National Institute of Archaeology at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences entered the burial chamber of an ...

What makes this organic cow milk yogurt different is two amazing things. The cows are grass-fed and the yogurt is not strained. Their motto, Let the Greeks have their philosophers, leave the yogurt to us, makes me laugh every time I read it. Bulgaria is proud to have the history of producing the healthiest yogurt in Europe dating back 4,000 years ago. Russian Nobelist Ilya Mechnikov attributed yogurt as the reason why Bulgarians lived so long. He studied the yogurt and linked aging to toxic bacteria in the bowel and showed that fermented milk inhibits these germs from growing by seeding the intestine with good bacteria. Mechnikov named the yogurt microorganism Lactobacillus bulgaricus ...
