Abstract: This article provides a presentation of the method used to guarantee the accessibility and usability of an online course for blind women. The course discusses breast cancer with a focus on early detection, with a view to granting these women a new form of learning about breast cancer. In this paper, the evaluation of the accessibility of HTML pages was presented by the use of specific software. In addition, it presents the accessibility and usability for blind women in a course in a virtual learning environment. The accessibility evaluation using the software revealed 21 errors. When the blind women accessed the virtual learning environment, sporadic barriers were identified, such as difficulties for registering and using the forum. These were bypassed and the participants defined the access to the online course as satisfactory. This study aims to bring awareness to online education and health professionals about the accessibility of online courses. With regard to health promotion, the importance of this study is clear owing to the lack of educational resources in health for visually impaired people, in addition to the importance of the timeliness of the topic owing to the magnitude of the issue of breast cancer around the world.

Abstract: Some breast reconstruction surgeries after mastectomy, or even reductive mammoplasty, may evolve unexpectedly when the areolopapillary complex heals and develop dehiscences, necrosis and delayed healing. The purpose of this case report was to verify the efficacy of photodynamic therapy in wound healing of the areolopapillary complex. This was a case report of a female patient with diabetes, fibromyalgia and diagnosed with breast cancer, with necrotic areolopapillary complex, after debridement, photodynamic therapy started with clobetasol propionate associated with methylene blue and low power laser application. At the beginning of the treatment with photodynamic therapy, the wound had 6 centimeters of diameter, and after 19 sessions, the wound was closed completely with normalization of the color of the nipple. The photodynamic therapy is advancing a lot in healing of infected wounds and complex wounds. It can be said that in this case report, photodynamic therapy was fundamental for the complete healing, being considered a promising treatment and another alternative for dermatofunctional physiotherapists.

Journal of Biosciences and Medicines (JBM) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/jbm.2017.58004
Abstract: Darier disease (DD), also known as follicular keratosis, is a rare autosomal dominant hereditary acantholytic dermatosis caused by a mutation in the ATP2A2 gene. Skin lesions are characterized by persistent confluent papules, preferentially located on the seborrheic areas of the face, chest and back. The hands, feet and nails are also commonly affected. DD has a chronic course with frequent relapses. Their treatment is often difficult and unsatisfactory. We present the case of a 54-year-old male with a history of keratotic papules with a brownish-black color, with a foul-smelling, pruritic and ardent appearance on the back and trunk, since the age of 19, which worsen in the summer. His 27-year-old daughter has a similar picture with her skin lesions started at age of 17 in the region below the breast, back, trunk, feet and hands. After the skin biopsy, the diagnosis was confirmed and acitretin 30 mg/day was instituted. The importance of this case report is to alert health professionals that the diagnosis of DD should be considered in family members of patients, especially those in the first degree, and also in patients with follicular keratolytic dermatoses, being an important differential diagnosis of this group of patients diseases.

Abstract: a survey regarding the diel and seasonal distribution of brachyuran zoea was accomplished in the jaguaribe estuary, state of pernambuco, brazil. plankton samples were obtained bimonthly, throughout the year of 2001, in different tides and during day and night periods, at two sampling stations. fourteen taxa were identified, among which ocypodidae, represented by ucides cordatus (linnaeus, 1763) and uca spp. zoea, was the most abundant one, followed by xanthidae and grapsidae. in the station close to the estuary opening, the taxa were well distributed, besides presenting a larger number of identified families. ocypodidae, grapsidae and morphotype b zoea indicated a dispersion movement into coastal areas, while pinnotheridae indicated a probable retention within the estuarine waters. the high occurrence of zoea in the first larval stages reinforces the important role of estuaries as nursery grounds for several crustacean species.

Biotemas , 2010,
Abstract: The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of dietary kava-kava (Piper methysticum) during the laying period on performance (feed intake, feed conversion, weight of eggs and production), egg quality, tonic immobility time (TIT), intensity of injuries and blood heterophil/lymphocyte ratio (H:L). A total of 90 female Japanese quails of 21 weeks of age were distributed in a completely randomized experimental design and submitted to three treatments (0, 300 and 600mg of dried extract of kava-kava/kg of feed), with five replicates and six birds, in each batch. Kava-kava fed to laying quails has no effect on performance, egg quality, intensity of injury or H:L ratio. However, there is a reduction in time spent in tonic immobility with the inclusion of kava-kava that predisposes the quail to a reduction of stress.

Abstract: The aging is part of natural process in organism. In many countries, the group of age more advanced is the group what more quickly increases; it reflects the result of news therapy, programs of natality control and preventives strategy. In that stage from the life frequently appear some physical limitations and it can to perturb the routine of some patients and of theirs relative. The purpose from this paper was to show changes occurred in seniors, through of a literature revision in correlation to the dental treatment. El envejecimiento forma parte de un proceso natural del organismo. En muchos países, el grupo que con más rapidez va en aumento es el de los de edad avanzada, reflejo del resultado de nuevas terapias, estrategias preventivas y programas de control de natalidad. En esta etapa de la vida es corriente el surgimiento de ciertas limitaciones físicas, lo que puede influir en el aspecto psicológico de algunos pacientes, alterando su rutina y la de sus familiares.

Abstract: equating, metaphorically, the terms "lab" and "school", this article presents an experimental research program aiming to develop procedures to build symbolic repertories in capuchin monkeys (cebus apella). the metaphor "lab-school" arises from the similarity of the training procedures, used to teach discriminations or stimulus relations, to teaching programs used to introduce gradually more complex tasks. the challenge has been to keep the behavior of the "learners" under the control of the task properties, as programmed by the experimenter. results document the acquisition of generalized identity and indicate the possibility of teaching more complex repertoires that are prerequisite for symbolic behavior and the possible application of the developed technology in teaching such repertoires to persons with difficulties to develop conventional symbolic functioning.

Abstract: preharvest application of ethephon, a compound that releases ethylene when hydrolyzed, can anticipate and standardize mango harvesting. in this study, the effects of different doses of ethephon, applied at preharvest, on harvest anticipation of 'ubá' mango were evaluated. on the 17th week after anthesis, 25 mango trees, five per treatment, were sprayed with ethephon at 0, 250, 500, 750 and 1000mg l-1, plus 0.5% of mineral oil. five fruits from each plant were harvested daily until full ripening, and evaluated. except, for dose 0mg l-1, in which six days after ethephon application (daae), harvest was carried out weekly up to 41daae the treated fruit presented a more intense flesh color than the non-treated, particularly at the doses of 500 and 750mg l-1. fruit treated with 500, 750 and 1000mg l-1showed abrupt firmness reduction from the 1st daae and tss higher than 18°brix on the 6th daae. non-treated fruit presented slower firmness reduction and reached 18°brix on the 35th daae. the dose of 1000mg l-1 of ethephon resulted in premature fall and low fruit quality. application of 500 or 750mg l-1 of ethephon allowed to anticipate and to standardize mango harvesting. these doses also allowed harvesting fruit with the best commercial quality and without the need of climatization after harvest.
