Looking for a Rarity: Histiocytic Sarcoma  [PDF]
Joana de Castro Rocha, Isabel Paiva, Ana Rita Cruz
Journal of Cancer Therapy (JCT) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/jct.2016.72009
Abstract: Histiocytic sarcoma is an extremely rare and very aggressive malignancy, with poor prognosis. The cases described in the literature are few and the treatment is not currently considered consensual. The clinical presentation is very variable. Its characterization is made based primarily on the histology. The authors present a case of an 82-year-old woman, with multiple adenopatic retroperitoneal and left iliac conglomerates, with left leg associated edema (extrinsic compression by conglomerates). After intensive study and approach ganglion biopsy, the histologic diagnosis revealed a histiocytic sarcoma.
Abdominal Muscular Metastases of a Pulmonar Adenocarcinoma  [PDF]
Joana de Castro Rocha, Pedro Nuno Brand?o, Ana Rita Cruz, Vítor Valente
Advances in Lung Cancer (ALC) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/alc.2015.42004
Abstract: Metastases are synonymous of malignant neoplasm in advanced stage and so associated with a poor prognosis. As the first manifestation of cancer disease, the muscle metastasis is very rare. The definitive diagnosis of its presence is made based on histology. The authors presented the case of a patient with a lung adenocarcinoma, being with first manifestation of it, a muscle metastasis only about a month later there were clinical manifestations with imaging appearance that led to the diagnosis of a primary neoplasm. The rare manifestation of the disease motivated the study and surveillance of the patient and lead to the diagnosis.

Joana de Castro Rocha, Raquel Lopes, Ana Rita Cruz, Cristina Gon?alves, Jo?o Araújo Correia, Jorge Coutinho
Open Journal of Blood Diseases (OJBD) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ojbd.2015.51002
Abstract: Primary liver lymphoma is extremely rare, in most of cases it is a B cell lymphoma. Usually the diagnosis is made in middle-aged individuals and most of them have a relatively short life expectancy. In this article, the authors present a case report of a 75-year-old woman with symptoms of three weeks of evolution of diffuse abdominal pain, asthenia and anorexia. The analysis showed cyto cholestasis and the radiological image with lush hepatomegaly because of a large hepatic mass. The patient started chemotherapy and actually is well twenty months after the end of the chemotherapy.

Abstract: histoplasmosis is a clinically relevant fungal infection in immunosuppressed patients, in whom it may present as a serious disease. we describe the case of a renal transplant recipient who presented with malaise, dry cough, severe weight loss, abdominal pain and watery diarrhoea. the laboratory workup revealed anaemia and elevated c reactive protein. chest x-ray showed bilateral reticulonodular infiltrates, and computed tomography scan of the chest and abdomen revealed diffuse thickening of the inter- and intralobular septs, suggestive of lymphangitic infiltration. the abdomen had multiple lymphadenopathies along the mesenteric vessels. endoscopic evaluation disclosed disseminated ulcers throughout the entire gastrointestinal tract, and biopsies confirmed the diagnosis of histoplasmosis. despite adequate treatment with liposomal amphotericin b, the patient had a fatal outcome. we describe this case because of the rarity of gastrointestinal presentation in the context of disseminated histoplasmosis, and we also speculate about the transmission through the allograft. it highlights the importance of considering this once geographically limited disease in challenging cases, even in non-endemic areas
Families and healthy lifestyle: a case study

Online Brazilian Journal of Nursing , 2009,
Abstract: A Federal University in Northeast of Brazil has been enlarging its activities on the five Campi. On its structure, one group stands out, the families who live around the academic unities of Porangabussu Campus. It aims to apprehend the social representations about the lifestyle of families with approach on their life activities. The case study, which was made with 30 families, happened from September 2006 to March 2007, and were used: semi-strutured interview; participative observation; photography of place's campus, and the working out of a testimony about the choice. It was used the Bardin Contents Analysis (1977) and the Robert Ott approach (1997) for photographs. The representations were organized in five categories, being the main representation, the lack of infra-structure and security on the campus. Based on the Ropper, Logan and Tierney Nursing Model (1990), it was found that all life activities were changed and the most affected were: safe environment, 23.9%; breath, work and distraction, with 13, 3% each, and sleep, 9.6%. About the photography's technique, the Structure of the Campus (33.7%) and the aesthetics (37.6%) were the most represented. The study allowed the knowledge of the reality experienced by families and the need for changes in this place.
Evaluación de la toxicidad por administración única del producto QT2B21 en ratas Sprague Dawley

Revista Cubana de Plantas Medicinales , 2004,
Abstract: a study of acute toxicity was conducted in sprague dawley rats of both sexes by the sole oral administration of the qt2b21 product obtained from the species of nephrolepis cordifolia fern to determine its toxicity. 3 dose levels were evaluated: 33.33, 133.32, and 533.28 mg/kg. some hematologic indexes were determined without finding toxic effects attributable to the administration of the product. the anatomopathological (by macroscopic examination) and histopathological studies of the main organs were conducted. their examination did not show macroscopic alterations. according to the result of the histopathological study, only statistically significant differences were observed in the percentage of relative weight of the testes in the group treated with the intermediate dose as regards the control group. this effect did not depend on the dose. it was concluded that the sole oral administration of the qt2b21 product did not bring about alterations due to toxicity that may be attributed to it. this product was considered as tolerable in sprague dawley rats of both sexes in the dose range from 33.33 to 533.28 mg/kg of weight.

Ciência Rural , 2008, DOI: 10.1590/S0103-84782008000700006
Abstract: the objective of this research was to identify soybean genotypes with good adaptability and stability of behavior for resistance to powdery mildew in field conditions. the work was carried out at the professor diogo alves de mello experimental station, agronomy department of the federal university of vi?osa (ufv), vi?osa, minas gerais. the experiment was arranged in a randomized block design, in split-plots, with 15 genotypes (plots) and seven evaluation times (subplots), with four repetitions. evaluation of incidence and severity of powdery mildew in the genotypes were accomplished by visual quantification of fungus infection level (il), assessing the level of infection of the leaf area infected (niafi) by the powdery mildew and the level of infection of the most infected leaflet (nifi). data were examined by analysis of variance and analysis of adaptability and stability according to eberhart & russell (1966). the results allowed to get to the following conclusions: the genotypes that showed the highest resistance levels, were, in general, also the ones of higher adaptability and stability, both for niafi and nifi, standing out ufv 89-361826 t2, ufv 94-334268, ufv-16 and ufv-19, ft-10 rc5 (f3), ft-abyara rc6 (f2), doko rc, ft-abyara rc5 (f4), whereas the most susceptible genotypes were the ones of worse predictability, standing out ufv 94-5126, ft-104, ufv 94-3500, ft-cristalina, ft-estrela and br-16.

Crop Breeding and Applied Biotechnology , 2011, DOI: 10.1590/S1984-70332011000400003
Abstract: the purpose of this study was to analyze the genetic diversity among soybean genotypes inoculated with heterodera glycines race 3. the experiments were conducted in a greenhouse. in two performance tests of morphological characteristics and resistance to the pathogen, 27 soybean genotypes were assessed. the coefficient of genotypic determination was estimated by the method of analysis of variance and the genetic diversity analyzed based on dendrograms and optimization method. the estimated coefficients of determination indicated a predominantly genetic origin of the genotypic differences in the traits. the genetic variability was maintained in the superior genotypes, which can be used in breeding programs for resistance to soybean cyst nematode.
