Abstract: in 2002, after analyzing 28 hiv-positive patients with movement disorders we emphasized the decreasing not only of parkinsonism but also of other involuntary movements in hiv patients in the last few years. the objective of this study is to compare the clinical results between hiv-positive patients with parkinsonism before and after haart. in 14 years (1986-1999) 2,460 hiv-positive patients were seen in our hospital 14 (0.6%) of which presented with parkinsonism. eight years after (2000-2007) 970 hiv positive patients were seen and only two (0.2%) had parkinsonism. we conclude that after the introduction of haart there was an evident decrease in aids-related parkinsonism.

Primary progressive freezing gait: case report
Nicaretta, Denise Hack;Pereira, Jo?o Santos;Pimentel, Maria Lucia Vellutini;
Arquivos de Neuro-Psiquiatria , 1997, DOI: 10.1590/S0004-282X1997000300024
Abstract: the clinical features of the primary progressive freezing gait, a rare and distinct neurological entity, have been described in some articles. this paper describes this gait disorder affecting one patient, whose condition's long course provoked no postural instability. as stated in the literature, the pathophysiology of the primary progressive freezing gait still remains unclear, although the lack of response to levodopa therapy suggests a possible involvement of nondopaminergic pathways. alteration in the visual perception may be a potential cause for the condition.
The Environmental Dimension of Groundwater in Brazil: Conflicts between Mineral Water and Water Resource Management  [PDF]
Ana Lucia Desenzi Gesicki, Francesco Sindico
Journal of Water Resource and Protection (JWARP) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/jwarp.2014.616140
Abstract: There are three legal categories of groundwater in Brazil. Mineral water and potable table water are considered mineral resources, are part of the Federative Union’s assets, and follow the legal regime applicable for the mining sector. “Normal” groundwater, on the other hand, falls under State’s jurisdiction and is dealt within the Brazilian System of Water Resource Management, which promotes a decentralized and participatory management of water resources on surface or stored underground. This has led to conflicts of competences between federal (mining regulation) and state agencies (water resource management) because different concepts and styles of management are involved. This article argues for the urgent need to reopen the discussion aimed at a possible major revision of Brazilian mineral water legislation, in order to duly take into account the environmental dimension of groundwater as a public good for common use. An open-minded and transparent discussion involving the government and different sectors of society with competing interests in mineralized groundwater would therefore be highly recommended.
"What kind of Agrarian Reform, after all?": Revisiting an unfinished debate in Brazil
Valente,Ana Lucia;
Estudos Sociedade e Agricultura , 2008,
Abstract: in the present article, the land reform issue is examined in three angles: state action, the existing demand for agrarian reform, and current academic debates. from the analysis of different perspectives, this article indicates, as a possible answer to its title's question, the concentration of human, financial and logistical resources in the region that ranges from minas gerais to maranh?o. expropriation and acquisition mechanisms are possible because land is cheaper in northeastern brazil, considering the country's paucity of resources and the need to maximize the governmental effectiveness. because of the expressive presence of african descendents, the suggested choices must also include ethnic issues. land reform could thus become an expressive policy in brazil that may reduce rural poverty with effective results, from which many social segments may benefit.

Martins, Ana Lucia Lucas;
Ambiente & Sociedade , 2011, DOI: 10.1590/S1414-753X2011000200005
Abstract: the increase of creation of protected areas in the world in the last 20 years and the complexities which surround them have resulted in a new field of studies under human and social sciences. this paper approaches the issue of leisure and protected areas with an empirical focus on a biological conservation unit and the populations who live and stay around it. the claim is that the categorization of the protected area disputes, by a group of actors, values and practices on conservation. in such dispute, leisure is a tense and (im)possible mediation for the relations between society and nature. from observations, interviews, photographs and questionnaires with non-governmental organizations , local residents, representatives of tourism enterprises and public powers, we intend to discuss the dynamics of the social relations constituted in the social processes of nature preservation and the particularity of leisure as a practice and a value in the interactions among different social actors and also the issue of the preservation of protected area.

Araújo, Ana Lucia;
Varia Historia , 2009, DOI: 10.1590/S0104-87752009000100007
Abstract: this paper examines the different representations of slavery and the slave trade found on the slaves route in ouidah, present republic of benin. it aims at understanding how these representations express and reconstruct different memories of the atlantic slave past. the paper shows that ouidah's slaves route is a constructed space, where we can find two different images of enslaved africans: the absolute victim and the resister. the proposed itinerary suggests two levels of interpretation: on the one hand, the monuments staging the past aim at emotionally move the diaspora (especially african americans) who have the financial resources to travel abroad; on the other hand, the statues conceived by cyprien tokoudagaba and the existing vodun temples on the slaves route place the visitor at the crossing position between different memories and different histories of slavery, where victimization is replaced by cultural assertion, through the promotion of african art, religions, and cultures.
