Inflammatory Bowel Diseases: What Do We Still Need to Investigate?  [PDF]
Marina Taus, Debora Busni, Daniele Fumelli, Arianna Paci, Giulia Nicolai, Albano Nicolai
Open Journal of Gastroenterology (OJGas) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ojgas.2015.510024
Abstract: Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) including Crohn (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC), is intestinal disorders with an unknown specific etiology. Many factors are involved in the pathogenesis: genetic, environment, nutrition, immunity and intestinal dysbiosis. In the present work, we review the most important trigger mechanisms involved in IBD, with a particular regard to the role of microbiota and fecal mass transplantation as a new therapeutic approach, that even if it can be considered safe and effective, data are necessary regarding all procedures not yet standardized and timing of treatment.
Coeliac Disease: Gluten Free Diet and… What Else?  [PDF]
Marina Taus, Elsa Veronica Mignini, Daniele Fumelli, Debora Busni, Giulia Nicolai, Carla Carletti, Albano Nicolai
Open Journal of Gastroenterology (OJGas) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ojgas.2016.611035
Abstract: Coeliac Disease (CD) is a permanent gluten intolerance, whose pathogenesis involves multiple factors including genetics and environment. CD has different representations and non-specific symptoms such as diarrhea, bloating, pain, flatulence and constipation may sometimes be misleading. Once diagnosed of CD, patients must adhere to Gluten Free Diet, which consists in the lifelong avoidance of gluten containing foods and of those naturally gluten free but at risk of contamination. This dietary approach is considered the only therapy in order to avoid symptoms exacerbation and to reduce the digestive mucosa inflammation, which has been related to higher risks of lymphoproliferative malignancy and other immunological disorders. However, being on a Gluten Free Diet is not as resolving as it may seem since it has several criticalities. First of all, excluding gluten means limiting food variety so that coeliac patients may have unbalanced intake of several nutrients and develop clinical or subclinical deficiencies. This can be due to scarce attention to qualitative and quantitative composition of diets and poor information about gluten-containing foods, which only patient-tailored dietetic protocol and long-term follow-up can achieve. Secondly, Gluten Free Diet may not result in complete remission of mucosal damage or in resolution of symptoms. Unintentional contamination of gluten or poor adherence to diet are the main culprits of the incomplete mucosal healing but other triggers may be involved. Recent research has focused on the role of FODMAPs in changing gut microbiota and on the improvement of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) symptoms after their dietary avoidance or reduction. Since CD and IBS may share many clinical presentations, further studies are needed to evaluate if a subgroup of CD patients whose symptoms are not improved by Gluten Free Diet could benefit from a new therapeutic approach consisting in both gluten/wheat and FODMAPs avoidance.

Parental Care, Children’s Cognitive Abilities and Economic Growth: The Role of Fathers  [PDF]
Debora Di Gioacchino
Theoretical Economics Letters (TEL) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/tel.2012.23046
Abstract: Human capital is a key determinant of economic growth. Parents’ involvement during childhood is a predictor of educational attainment later in life. Thus, time devoted by parents to childcare is an important productive activity for society. This paper presents a model in which parental childcare is a key factor in determining children’s cognitive abilities. Parents’ must allocate their time between paid job and childcare. Because of diminishing return, the optimal allocation of parents’ time requires both parents to spend some time in childcare. Since a suboptimal allocation of time has implications both for children's cognitive abilities and for economic growth, our result has important policy implications.
Tax Compliance, Income Distribution and Social Norms  [PDF]
Debora Di Gioacchino, Fabrizio Patriarca
Theoretical Economics Letters (TEL) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/tel.2017.73044
Abstract: This paper studies the effect of income inequality on tax evasion. To discuss the topic, we present a simple model, based on Benabouand Tirole [1], that incorporates incentives for tax compliance such as punishment and fines, intrinsic motivation and social norms. Since we consider a regressive system of incentives to comply, income inequality increases the value of tax evasion although overall propensity to comply is unaffected. In this framework, we consider the hypothesis that social norms are group specific as in the case of social segregation or status related networks. We show that all the negative effects of inequalities are amplified: the difference between the tax compliance of the income groups and the value of tax evasion increase.

Abstract: this paper analyzes a court case involving parents' refusal of life support measures for an 8-month-old infant with spinal muscular atrophy type i, a fatal degenerative genetic disease. the parents filed for a court injunction to ensure that the infant would not be submitted to mechanical ventilation in case of respiratory distress. the brazilian courts recognized the parents' right to refuse life support measures, and the infant died a week after the ruling. the parents' request was to guarantee their right to avoid medical procedures that would not alter the infant's clinical prognosis. the author of this paper was called on to provide expert ethical counsel in this case, and the article is a modified and condensed version of the author's report to the presiding judge.
Dilemas éticos da vida humana: a trajetória hospitalar de crian?as portadoras de paralisia cerebral grave

Abstract: this study deals with the ethical premises of medical treatment for children with serious cerebral palsy. eight months of ethnographic research were carried out with patients at the cerebral palsy center in the sarah hospital in salvador, bahia, brazil. observation of treatment for these children, who displayed limited clinical change, led to the following question, as suggested by discussions from medical deontology: what is the purpose of medical treatment for children with serious cerebral palsy? the results of our research point to social and humanist explanations going beyond the official medical scientific explanation, which limits treatment to corporal mechanicism.
Autonomia reprodutiva: um estudo de caso sobre a surdez

Abstract: the ethical principle of reproductive autonomy is one of the cornerstones of bioethical theories. prenatal diagnostic techniques and advances in genetics have broadened the spectrum of possibilities for reproductive choice. consequently, they allow for selection in diagnosed cases of fetal malformation, for instance. this article analyzes the case of deafness, in particular the argument from the deaf community that supports the birth of deaf children as a way of maintaining its cultural identity. the article discusses the community's culturalist argument that deafness should not be considered a disability. furthermore, the article considers the extent to which reproductive decisions by potential parents could limit the development of their future children.
Aborto e inviabilidad fetal: el debate brasile?o

Abstract: the case against non-compliance with the fundamental principle concerning anencephaly, under review by the brazilian supreme court, is a milestone in the debate on abortion in latin america. since the currently prevailing version of the brazilian penal code was enacted in 1940, there has been fierce resistance to any change in the country's abortion policy. this article discusses the arguments and political strategies used in the anencephaly suit brought before the supreme court, particularly the ethical and legal position that interruption of pregnancy in cases of anencephaly does not constitute abortion, but should be considered a therapeutic anticipation of delivery.
