Neuroimmune and endocrine correlates of stress response and dissociation in affective disorders
Bízik, Gustáv ; Bob, Petr (advisor) ; Horáček, Jiří (referee) ; Yamamotová, Anna (referee)
Depression and other mental disorders are the leading cause of disability worldwide and their burden has increased considerably over past decades. However, advances in psychopharmacology of psychiatric disorders are not in measure with this negativ trend. As a result, a large body of researchinpsychiatryandneurosciencestries to furtherourunderstanding of pathophysiologicalmechanismsunderlyingmooddisorders andothermentalillnesses in order to improve the efficacy of current treatments and to identify new therapeutic agents. According to current evidence, stress-related pathways and inflammation processes are directly involved in thedevelopment of depressive disorder andseveral other psychiatric conditions.Thestudy of the effects and consequences of stress exposure requires an interdisciplinary approach,taking into account specific aspects of the "inputs", such as chronic stress and traumatic experiences, and related psychological processes, with the crucial role of dissociation. Following these theoretical findings, the empirical research performed in two cohorts of inpatients with depressive disorder focused on immune and endocrine responses to stress and their relationship to psychopathological symptoms, specifically trauma-related symptoms, psychic and somatoform dissociation and depressive...
Link between inflammation and cancer
Schierl, Jaroslav ; Poljaková, Jitka (advisor) ; Miarková, Eva (referee)
Chronic inflammation caused by many initiators can lead to a development of a tumor disease. Among these initiators, we found chronic infections as well as other biological, chemical or physical factors which have endogenous and exogenous origins as for example tobacco smoke, alcohol, radiation, obesity and others. The inflammatory response is orchestrated by immune system cells which contribute to a tumorigenesis by producing reactive oxygen and nitrogen species which harm cell structures, and by releasing cytokines - important mediators of inflammation - which increase cell proliferation and angiogenesis. But apart from higher risk of tumourigenesis due to chronic inflammation, the immune system cells also participate in tumor microenvironment formation. The main contributors are tumor associated macrophages, dendritic cells and T-cells. Besides other things, the complex tumor microenvironment is characterized by the presence of many inflammation mediators which assist in malignant cell proliferation, tumour progression and metastasis and angiogenesis. This bachelor thesis describes the key protumor and antitumor factors which are also involved in the inflammation process. These factors include proinflammatory cytokines, enzymes and transcription factors. The transcription factor NF-κB plays an...

Access Control System Utilizing NFC and Arduino Microcontroller
Hájek, Jaroslav ; Štůsek, Martin (referee) ; Hošek, Jiří (advisor)
The Bachelor thesis focuses on acces systems including administration of locks, groups of users, users and their identities. For simple implementation of the system have been created four significant elements of the project: a web interface Locker, an application server Authentizer, MySQL database and an Android application. The web interface is used for system administration and included communication with the database. The server application is used for a communitation between the Locks and the MySQL database. The pivotal role of the server application is verification identities of users. The sever application and the database are used as publishing API. Android application is used as identity instead of identity card.
