The role of gut microbiome and autoimmune mechanisms in patients with anorexia nervosa
Kovářová, Tereza ; Procházková, Petra (advisor) ; Hrdý, Jiří (referee)
In addition to gastroenterological diseases, changes in the composition and diversity of the gut microbiota have been also described in several neurological and psychiatric diseases, including eating disorders. My intention in this work is to clarify whether changes in the composition of the intestinal microbiota may be involved in the development of anorexia nervosa (AN) and whether there is a correlation between these changes and possible immunopathological reactions in patients with anorexia nervosa. The study included 30 acute patients (disease duration up to 3 years), 30 patients with a chronic course of the disease (duration longer than 7 years), and 30 healthy controls. The research included analysis of the gut microbiome using high-throughput sequencing (HTS) and determination of serum levels of autoantibodies against selected neuropeptides regulating food intake (by ELISA). Furthermore, serum levels of biomarkers of microbial translocation through the intestinal barrier, intestinal cell damage, and inflammation were detected by ELISA. The levels of pro- and anti-inflammatory cytokines were measured using Luminex instrument. We also introduced an experimental ABA (activity-based anorexia) mouse model, which may contribute significantly to further investigating mechanisms of anorexia...
Development of Asaia genus in sand flies and its impact on Leishmania transmission
Stejskalová, Markéta ; Jančářová, Magdaléna (advisor) ; Procházková, Petra (referee)
The composition of the microbiome of insect vectors plays an irreplaceable role in the spread of human pathogens. Current knowledge of the interrelationships between phlebo- tomes, bacteria, and pathogens is quite limited. This thesis focuses on bacterias Asaia sp., which can be localized in a phlebotome microbiome. Both investigated species, Asaia siamensis and Asaia krungthepensis, can colo- nize the gut of Phlebotomus duboscqi, and, in addition, both transstadial transmission between larval stages and contaminative transmission to the next generation has been proved. Considering the superinfection of Ph. duboscqi with Asaia sp. and Leishmania major, the influence of bacteria on the development of leishmania infection has also been demonstrated. Results can have significant epidemiological implications and should be further investigated. Keywords: Phlebotomus, superinfection, Asaia siamensis, Asaia krungthepensis, Leishma- nia major, microbiome 1
Ecotoxicological evaluation of biochar via organism Folsomia candida
Marcinko, Juraj ; Procházková, Petra (referee) ; Zlámalová Gargošová, Helena (advisor)
The aim of this bachelor thesis was to ecotoxicologically evaluate selected biochar samples and to assess, using a test organism, the possible long-term and short-term effects on soil invertebrates. One of the possible uses of biomass is to convert it into biochar with subsequent application to soil. Soil fauna may be affected after biochar application, therefore ecotoxicological tests in a contact arrangement were chosen. Folsomia candida was used as the test organism. Short-term effects were recorded through escape tests, specifically low abundance of organisms in samples (I) and (T). Significant preference of organisms was observed for sample (O). Samples (I) and (T) had a further impact on the survival of organisms and on the quality of reproduction, where in some cases this caused a resolute impact. Sample (O), at different concentration levels, had no effect on the test organisms. The results of these tests approximate how soil invertebrates could be affected after biochar application.

Evaluation of the efficiency of root treatment plants via ecotoxicity tests
Konečná, Kateřina ; Procházková, Petra (referee) ; Zlámalová Gargošová, Helena (advisor)
This bachelor thesis focuses on the evaluation of the efficiency of root treatment plants using appropriately selected ecotoxicity tests. For these purposes, ecotoxicological tests in an aquatic arrangement were used, specifically with the planktonic organism Thamnocephalus platyurus and the plant Lemna minor. The evaluation was performed at a municipal root treatment plant, which treats water for 955 equivalent inhabitants. The results of tests with T. platyurus confirmed that the root treatment plant sufficiently relieves acute toxicity of water. LC50 values were determined for two samples, 213.71 ml / l for the inflow and 388.20 ml / l for the settling tank. At the outflow, these values could no longer be determined due to the low ecotoxicological effect of the water thus treated. For tests with L. minor, IC50 values were also calculated for the first two samples. For Sample No. 1, the IC50 value was calculated to be 311.25 ml / l, for Sample No. 2 to 963.35 ml / l. However, on the basis of tests of direct toxicity of waters with L. minor, it is possible to confirm even in the case of this organism, a good cleansing effect of this root treatment plant.

Procházková, Petra ; Martinek, Michael (advisor) ; Křížová, Eva (referee)
Pastoral care of people with intellectual disability is a quite new discipline in czech discourse. The aim of this bachelor work is to introduce, how pastoral care of people with intellectual disability looks like and how it function. Resource of the pastoral care is in gospel. It pursues growth of human being in level of bio-psycho-socio-spiritual, and so on. The "Theology of disability" is resource for pastoral care too. "Theology of disability" tries about inclusion of people with intellectual disability and disability in general. Tries about incluison into society and community. That all through Christian's values and love. Techniques of pastoral care are in general to sing a songs, some predicitons, to read biblical texts, prayers and support in growth of human being and to deal with difficult life circumstances. Pastoral care of people with intellectual disability provides the same fundamental human rights, which have people without disabilities too. With emphesizing Christianity and anthroposophy. It provides for them to meet with themselves, and to gain their dreams, wishes, needs and face to their anxiety and fears too. That all through different techniques.
