Jírová, Kateřina ; Hanušová, Jaroslava (advisor) ; Váchová, Alena (referee)
This diploma thesis deals with the problems of diseases of civilization. The work is divided into theoretical and practical parts. The theoretical part explains what are diseases of civilization, how they arise and how they can be prevented. For each disease (coronary heart disease, obesity, diabetes, cancer) the thesis describes in more detail how and why they arise, what are the risk factors, what preventive measures exist and how to treat the disease. In the practical part, the thesis is devoted to the research of pupils' knowledge in the field of diseases of civilization of selected schools. Using a questionnaire, we dermined the knowledge of the pupils of two secondary schools and found the variance in their knowledge. Furthermore, this knowledge of pupils was compared with their knowledge two years ago when a similar questionnaire was completed in the same schools. The purpose of this thesis was to find out how the knowledge of identical pupils of these two schools changed after two years. The final discussion shows how the knowledge of pupils has changed after two years. It was found that pupils' knowledge improved overall. Cancer, diabetes and obesity knowledge have all improved. There was a slight deterioration in the question concern the number of patients. There was no change in the...
Hereditary diseases in Border Collies in the Czech republic
Jírová, Kateřina ; Chmelíková, Eva (advisor) ; Fiala Šebková, Naděžda (referee)
The Border collie breed is becoming very popular in the Czech Republic which is related to the increased possibility of hereditary diseases of the breed. The aim of this thesis is to provide a comprehensive review of literature on hereditary diseases of Border Collies in the Czech Republic. The thesis focuses on the most common and most monitored defects and diseases affecting Border collies. In particular they are musculoskeletal diseases (hip dysplasia, elbow dysplasia, shoulder osteochondritis dissecans) eye diseases (progressive retinal atrophy, collie eye anomaly, and primary glaucoma), disease of the white blood cells and diseases of the nervous system (epilepsy, neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis, multi-drug resistance). In Border collie breeding there is a lack of a complete database with health results of breeder dogs. The only available information provided by Border Collie Club are the results of hip dysplasia, although all dogs must be presented at evaluation with an examination of hereditary eye diseases and since January 1, 2014 also by examination of elbow dysplasia and shoulder joint osteochondritis. As at least one of the parents must be examined in trapped neutrophil syndrome with the TNS normal results, the overall results of this examination should be included in the database. Voluntary examination as neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis and multi - drug resistance are difficult to monitor but even this information would be useful. Concerning the epilepsy occurrence there is no unofficial voluntary list. The work has proved that despite the higher popularity of the Border collie breed are not burdened by hereditary diseases in the Czech Republic. There are no individuals stricken with progressive retinal atrophy or eye anomaly, nor individuals with trapped neutrophil syndrome or neuronal ceroid lipufuscinosis. The occurrence of hip dysplasia could be decreased. Although 72,9 % of breeding dogs do not suffer from hip dysplasia, the occurrence of the the limit level C, still acceptable for breeding, is 11,9 % and could be certainly higher. It is up to the decision of owners whether to breed such a dog, as well as up to the decision of the Border Collie Club when the limit is decreased.
