A new subject which is focused on the training of students in the conditions of combat operations of tactical units was accredited at the University of Defence (UD) in 2015. The subject was entitled Field training and it is aimed to teach students basic military skills during performing tactical operations at the squad-platoon level. The subject is intended for students of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd years at all faculties of the UD, including the Faculty of Military Health Sciences, University of Defence in Hradec Kralove (FMHS UD). Training and drilling medical support, its organization and realization is a part of instructions and training of the FMHS UD students.

In the early stage of drug development the solubility of drug candidate is the most crucial physicochemical parameter to be defined for the selection of lead compound. Conventional shake flask method of solubility determination has now been replaced with more precise measurements like ultraviolet absorption, nephelometry, nuclear magnetic resonance and potentiometry. The development of a simple, rapid, sensitive and precise spectrophotometric method for the routine quantitative determination of samples will definitely reduce unnecessary tedious sample preparations and the cost of materials and labour. This article accounts for the measurement of solubility limit of few selected drugs by spectrophotometry using dilution technique. This has been done to optimize the method for rapid and convenient determination of drug solubility limit. Concentration of saturated solution of drug was determined from the absorbance versus concentration plots of various diluted solutions of drug as per Beer-Lambert law and was reported as drug solubility limit.

Knotweeds (Reynoutria Houtt.) are plants native to the Far East. Japanese knotweed was introduced from Japan to the unsuspecting West by the horticultural activities of Philippe von Siebold via his nursery at Leiden in the 1840s. By 1854, the plant had arrived at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh. The plants were then sold by a large number of commercial nursery gardens around the country. Further vegetative spread followed naturally along watercourses. The knotweed is currently extremely persistant invasive plant. There is also an important source of many bioactive substances which could be used in biomedicine. The article discusses biomedically relevant constituents and its pharmacological and toxicological properties.

Brazilian pepper tree (Schinus terebinthifolius Raddi) from the Anacardiaceae family is native to Central and South America. In folk medicine, S. terebinthifolius has been used as a remedy for ulcers, respiratory problems, wounds, rheumatism, gout, diarrhea, skin ailments and arthritis, as well as to treat tumors and leprosy. The Brazilian pepper tree has various biological properties and it is a source of many bioactive compounds. Several classes of compounds can be found in extracts obtained from these plants, such as terpenes and flavonoids. Essential oils obtained by steam distillation or extraction by solvents from berries or leafs is rich in monoterpenes and shows interesting antioxidant activity. It has displayed good-to-very strong in vitro antifungal actions against numerous fungi, as well as Candida. The essential oil and leaves have demonstrated in vitro antibacterial activity against numerous bacterial strains.
