In the area of the Moravian Gate at Štramberk (Moravia, Czech Republic) detailed field investigations of Thysanoptera were conducted. The Gate offers the possibility of dispersal of thrips species from the South to the North and vice versa. A total of 359 samples were collected, from which 2367 adult specimens of Thysanoptera belonging to 55 species were obtained. Between them are species having their main distribution in the Southern parts of Europe, such as
Aptinothrips elegans, Anaphothrips atroapterus, A. euphorbiae, Chirothrips aculeatus, Limothrips consimilis, Neohydatothrips abnormis, Rubiothrips pillichi, R. validus
.Additionally species were found that are absent or dispersed in Southern Europe, such as
Aptinothrips stylifer, Chirothrips hamatus, Odontothrips loti
. In ancient times these species may have used the Moravian Gate, which has been passed by large armies and many traders (the amber route), carrying all kinds of plant products with them.

TheCzechRepublic has long been known as a country with exceptionally high prevalence rates of health risk behavior among teenagers ( Dzúrová, Spilková, & Vraný, 2016 ; Spilková, Pikhart, & Dzúrová, 2015 ), often

The paper deals with the problem of the outpatient administration of186Re-HEDP and153Sm-EDTMP for palliative therapy of bone metastases. The subsequent 6 hours stay of the treated patients in a department of nuclear medicine appears to be in compliance with regulations proposed in the Czech Republic as well as with ICRP recommendations.
This paper proposes a new measure of central bank credibility — the credibility index calculated on the basis of the key determinants of central bank credibility. The index is compiled for 9 countries: the Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia, Poland, Chile, Brazil, Turkey, United Kingdom and Sweden , for the years 1999–2007. The results are cross-checked with other credibility measures based on inflation expectations of two groups of economic agents. The analysis demonstrates that the credibility index may be considered a relevant and consistent credibility measure.
Heart transplantation (HTX) has become an accepted treatment for selected patients with end-stage heart failure. There are two transplant centres in the Czech Republic, Prague since 1984 and Brno since 1992, in which more than 1000 heart transplantations were performed. Pharmacotherapy after heart transplantation includes the problems of immunosuppression and interactions of immunosuppressant drugs and their adverse effects. The main task for future is to find better immunosuppression with less side effects, to replace invasive bioptic examination of rejection and to find alternatives to clasical transplantation: xenotransplantation, stem cell transplantation or development of new ventricle assisst devices.
