Sorption of60Co,85Sr, 137Cs and125I have been studied on samples
originated from Boda (siltstone-) claystone formation (BCF) (Hungary). The
distribution of Kdvalues have been determined in static batch
experiments using natural groundwater. The order of sorption of isotopes was
Co>Cs>Sr>I, where iodine exhibits sorption properties in a modest
extent. The sorption isotherm was determined for Cs from measurements carried
out in 10-5-10-1M initial concentration range. The
isotherm can be described with non-linear Freundlich approximation in the range
10-7-10-4M equilibrium concentration. At
concentrations >10-2M the isotherm achieves saturation. Hence, it is suggested that sorption
of Cs on BCF is dominated by cation-exchange reactions on the illite mineral
component. In the case of Co and Sr, precipitation reactions occurred during
the experiments performed with carrier-containing solutions. This can be
attributed to the low values of solubility product constants of SrCO3, SrSO4and Co(OH)2, formed from anions present in the

Diffusions of85Sr,137Cs,60Co and125I radionuclides have been studied in
borecore samples from Boda siltstone/claystone formation (BCF) under ambient
and in situ conditions. In-diffusion (85Sr,137Cs,60Co and125I) and through-diffusion measurements (125I) were performed at ambient
conditions, and for iodine, in-diffusion measurements were also carried out at
in situ conditions (100 bar, 50 °C). In the case of cationic species
carrier-containing solutions were also applied.60Co was detected only in the first
slice of borecore at each sample, while137Cs was detected also in the first-, second- and
third slices according to the concentration-increase of inactive carrier. Among
the investigated cations,85Sr exhibited the fastest diffusion rate with
2.7-6.0 . 10-12m2/s
apparent diffusivity values. In the course of in-diffusion measurements 4.7
m 2 /s, during through-diffusion investigations 1.4-1.6 .
10-12m2/s and at in situ conditions 5.0-8.0
apparent diffusivities were obtained for125I.Modest sorption of125I can also be deduced from the

The nutritive value, the microbiological safety of oilseed cake (OSC) obtained from naked pumpkin seed (PuC), sunflower seed (SC), yellow linseed (LC), and walnut (WnC), and their impact on wheat flour (WF) dough and bread sensory characteristics at 5% and 10% addition ratio were investigated. The OSCs had high protein (34–50%), fat (8–15%), total dietary fibre (23–36%) content and high energy value (383–444 kcal/100 g)). The OSC samples with a minimal exception fulfilled the requirements of feed legislation in force. An increased water absorption, dough development time, and reduced elasticity were observed probably due to the enhanced fiber and protein content. Dough stability increased with WnC, and decreased with PuC or SC addition. Enrichment provided the appearance of a brown bread for WnC, of a half-brown bread for LC. PuC gave an unusual look. The appearance of OSC fortified bread similar to daily bread, was an advantage resulting the 1st rank for 10% WnC bread and the 2nd one for 10% LC bread (P=0.05). The studied OSCs are suitable for food enrichment, however, in case of PuC and SC fortified flour blends, hydrocolloid application is recommended. Our data suggest that the newly developed fortified breads could be a valuable source for healthy nutrition.

Hepatic artery complication represents recognized sequel of liver transplantation that carries significant morbidity and mortality. Besides retransplantation, hepatic artery recanalization is provided surgically, or by percutaneous angioplasty and stent placement. This study provides an analysis of a single center experience comparing surgical and interventional treatments in cases of early hepatic artery complications.
In this retrospective single center study, 25 of 365 liver transplant recipients were enrolled who developed early hepatic artery complication after transplantation. Percutaneous intervention was performed in 10 cases, while surgical therapy in 15 cases. Mean follow-up time was not different between the groups (505±377 vs. 706±940 days, respectively).
6 patients in the Intervention Group and 10 patients in the Surgery Group are alive. The retransplantation rate (1 and 3) was lower after interventional procedures, while the development of biliary complications was higher. The mortality rate was higher after operative treatment (2 and 5).
Interventional therapy is a feasible and safe technique for treatment of early hepatic artery complication after transplantation. Being less invasive it is an invaluable alternative treatment having results comparable to surgical methods.
