Abstract: Despite the absence of current official reports showing the number of cattle infected by rabies, it is estimated that nearly 30,000 bovines are lost each year in Brazil. In order to minimize the important economic losses, control of the disease is achieved by eliminating bat colonies and by herd vaccination. In this study, we compare the antibody response in cattle elicited by vaccination with an attenuated ERA vaccine (AEvac) and an inactivated-adjuvanted PV (IPVvac) vaccine. The antibody titers were appraised by cell-culture neutralization test and ELISA, and the percentage of seropositivity was ascertained for a period of 180 days. IPVvac elicited complete seropositivity rates from day 30 to day 150, and even on day 180, 87% of the sera showed virus-neutralizing antibody titers (VNA) higher than 0.5IU/ml. There were no significant differences between the VNA titers and seropositivity rates obtained with IPVvac in the two methods tested. AEvac, however, elicited significantly lower titers than those observed in the group receiving inactivated vaccine. In addition, the profiles of antirabies IgG antibodies, evaluated by ELISA, and VNA, appraised by cell-culture neutralization test, were slightly different, when both vaccines were compared.

Abstract: The aim of this study was to review the clinicopathological aspects and report the data obtained from bacterial endocarditis cases in dogs. A restropective study was carried out based on files of the Veterinary Hospital and the Animal Pathology Laboratory of Universidade Estadual de Londrina (UEL) from January 2003 to may 2008. During this period, 28 dogs presented bacterial endocarditis, 50% males and 50% females. Medium to large dogs were the most affected and adult animals were prevalent, with the following clinical signs: apathy, hiporexy, hyperthermia, splenomegaly, dyspnea, dehydration, dysuria and cardiac murmur, Necropsy revealed the mitral valve as the most affected cardiac structure and among the organs, the kidneys were the most affected. O presente trabalho objetivou revisar os aspectos clínico-patológicos e relatar os dados obtidos sobre a endocardite bacteriana em c es, por meio de estudo retrospectivo realizado nos arquivos do Hospital Veterinário e Laboratório de Patologia Animal da Universidade Estadual de Londrina (UEL), durante o período de janeiro de 2003 a maio de 2008. No transcorrer do período considerado, 28 c es apresentaram a doen a, sendo 50% machos e 50% fêmeas. Animais de médio a grande porte foram os mais acometidos e os adultos obtiveram prevalência. Os principais sinais clínicos apresentados foram apatia, hiporexia, hipertermia, esplenomegalia, dispnéia, desidrata o, disúria e sopro cardíaco. à necropsia, observou-se que a válvula mitral foi a estrutura cardíaca mais afetada, sendo o rim o órg o mais frequentemente acometido.

Abstract: A alta do paciente da recupera o pós-anestésica (RPA) depende, dentre outros fatores, do retorno à normotermia e do escore alcan ado pelo índice de Aldrete e Kroulik. Sendo assim, o objetivo deste estudo foi verificar a rela o entre o índice de Aldrete e Kroulik e a temperatura corporal dos pacientes. O local de pesquisa foi o Hospital Universitário da Universidade de S o Paulo. O cálculo amostral foi determinado por conveniência e foi constituído por 60 pacientes, entre 18 e 60 anos, submetidos à anestesia geral. Foram verificados a temperatura corporal na regi o timpanica e o índice de Aldrete e Kroulik do paciente na recep o e alta da recupera o pós-anestésica. Os dados obtidos foram processados pelo pacote estatístico SPSS, com um nível de 5% de significancia, e aplicaram-se o teste de Spearman e o teste de Wilcoxon. Conclui-se que n o houve correla o significativa entre os dois parametros indicativos de alta. El alta del paciente de la recuperación post-anestésica (RPA) depende, entre otros factores, del retorno a la normotermia y del puntaje alcanzado por el índice de Aldrete y Kroulik. Así, se objetivó verificar relación entre el índice de Aldrete y Kroulik y la temperatura corporal de los pacientes. Estudio realizado en el Hospital Universitario de la Universidad de S o Paulo. El cálculo de la muestra se determinó por conveniencia y se constituyó de 60 pacientes, edad entre 18 y 60 a os, sometidos a anestesia general. Se verificó temperatura corporal en región timpánica e índice de Aldrete y Kroulik del paciente en recepción y alta de recuperación post-anestésica. Los datos se procesaron con software estadístico SPSS, con nivel de 5% de significatividad, se aplicaron las pruebas de Spearman y el test Wilcoxon. Se concluyó en que no existió correlación significativa entre los dos parámetros indicadores del alta. Patient discharge from post-anesthetic recovery (PAR) depends, among other factors, on normothermia and the patient's score on the Aldrete-Kroulik index. The objective of this study was to verify the relationship between the Aldrete-Kroulik index and body temperature in patients. This study was performed at the University of S o Paulo University Hospital. Convenience sampling was used, and the sample consisted of 60 patients of ages between 18 and 60 years who underwent general anesthesia. The patients' body temperature was obtained by tympanic measurement, and the Aldrete-Kroulik index was measured on admission and at discharge from post-anesthetic recovery. The data were processed using SPSS, considering a significance level of 5%,

Abstract: objective: to evaluate the humoral immune response to the pre-exposure schedule of human rabies vaccination through intradermal and intramuscular routes, as well as the need for serological monitoring. methods: a randomized and controlled intervention study was carried out in s?o paulo, southeastern brazil, from 2004-2005. there were 149 volunteers, of which 127 completed the vaccination schedule (65 intradermal and 62 intramuscular) and underwent humoral immune response evaluation at ten, 90 and 180 days post-vaccination. two outcomes were considered for comparing the two routes of administration: the geometric average of neutralizing antibody titers and the proportion of individuals with satisfactory titers (> 0.5 iu/ml) at each evaluation point. the association of the humoral immune response with anthropometric and demographic data was analyzed through a normal distribution test and a chi-square test with a yates correction. after completion of the vaccination schedule, the proportion of seropositive results was compared by the kruskall wallis test, and the average titers were compared by variance analysis. results: the average antibody titers were higher in patients who were vaccinated intramuscularly. the percentage of volunteers with satisfactory titers (> 0.5% iu/ml) decreased over time in both groups. however, in the group vaccinated intradermally the rate of satisfactory titers on day 180 ranged from 20% to 25%, while the intramuscular route varied from 63% to 65%. an association between the humoral immune response and the demographic and anthropometric variables was not observed. conclusions: serology after the third dose can be considered unnecessary in unexposed patients, since 97% and 100% of volunteers respectively vaccinated by the intradermal and intramuscular route presented satisfactory antibody levels (> 0.5% iu/ml).

Abstract: OBJETIVO: Descrever a incidência e características endoscópicas de les es das vias aéreas em crian as submetidas à intuba o. MéTODOS: Durante o período de dois anos (outubro/99 a outubro/01) foi conduzido estudo prospectivo no qual todo paciente intubado, excetuando-se aqueles que evoluíram para óbito e recém-nascidos (RN) com peso inferior a 1.250g, foi submetido à endoscopia respiratória na extuba o. Achados endoscópicos foram classificados em leves, moderados ou graves. Descri es foram realizadas por meio de propor es e medianas, compara es feitas por teste qui-quadrado para propor es. RESULTADOS: Foram estudados 61 RN e 154 crian as. Em 89,8% dos pacientes, sendo 55 RN e 138 crian as (p=0,89), foi detectada pelo menos uma les o somando 507. Pacientes com les es leves corresponderam a 54,8% (IC95%: 48,1-61,5), aqueles com les es moderadas foram 24,2% (IC95%: 18,5-30,0) enquanto as graves ocorreram em 10,7% dos pacientes (IC95%: 6,6-14,8). Locais principalmente acometidos foram glote (48,1% das les es) e subglote (34,9% das les es). Eros es foram as mais incidentes em ambos os grupos etários (p=0,88). Edema de prega vocal foi a principal les o moderada em ambos os grupos (p=0,96), seguida por ulcera es (p=0,92). Nódulos fibrosos em pregas vocais e sinéqüias foram as principais les es graves em ambos os grupos etários (p=0,12). Estenose subglótica foi detectada em 2,8% da popula o sem diferen a entre as faixas etárias (p=0,35). CONCLUS ES: Verificou-se elevada incidência de les es em vias aéreas, sem diferen a significante entre os grupos etários com rela o à incidência e características das les es. Houve predomínio de les es leves, les es na glote e caracterizadas por eros es, edema e ulcera es.
