A complexidade do custo socioecon?mico da filariose linfática
Mattos, Denise;Dreyer, Gerusa;
Revista da Sociedade Brasileira de Medicina Tropical , 2008, DOI: 10.1590/S0037-86822008000400015
Abstract: lack of knowledge of the socioeconomic impact of various diseases is generally one of the biggest obstacles to obtaining funds for investment in applied research and for starting to implement control programs that are needed in developing countries. the authors analyze and emphasize important aspects of the complexity of quantifying the socioeconomic impact of lymphatic filariasis. they highlight the gaps that exist within some fields of knowledge and that these gaps have still not been properly explored with regard to individuals with this disease. they bring together the data in the literature and echoes from their own experience gained through caring for patients with bancroftian infection and disease at a tertiary referral service (nepaf - filariasis care, research and teaching center, recife, brazil). the social impact, in its broadest sense, consists of strong indications of losses of quality of life among patients. unfortunately, this is still poorly documented and, up to a certain point, very difficult to quantify because of the very particular social abandonment of the endemic communities.

Abstract: introduction: with the gradual aging of the brazilian population, cancer has gained an increasingly important role as a cause of morbidity and mortality. the south and southeast regions of brazil present the highest rates of cancer mortality and are inhabited by the greatest number of elderly people. objective: to analyze patterns of mortality for selected cancer sites in the female population of 60 years of age or older in the south and southeast regions of brazil, in the 1980-2005 period. method: population and mortality data for all cancers and for esophageal, gastric, colon/rectal, pancreas, breast, and uterine cervix cancer, by year of the study period, were obtained from the ministry of health/datasus. regression models were estimated to analyze trends in mortality rates for three age groups: 60-69 years, 70-79 years, and 80 years or more. results: mortality rates for colon-rectal, pancreas, lung and breast cancer showed significantly rising trends in all age groups in both regions. a significant decreasing trend was observed for gastric cancer in the three age groups, both in the south and in the southeast region, while significantly decreasing trends were observed for esophageal cancer only in the southeast region conclusions: patterns of cancer mortality in elderly women of the south and southeast regions of brazil follow world-wide trends and important changes in these trends occurred during the study period. mechanisms involved in the behavior of cancer mortality in aging individuals, still unknown to a large extent, and regional and generational differences in the prevalence of risk and protective factors for cancer could partially explain some of the patterns observed. further studies on cancer mortality in aging individuals are needed to extend our present knowledge.
Aspectos da realidade social de crian?as e adolescentes atendidos em servi?o de referência para filariose bancroftiana, Recife, estado de Pernambuco
Mattos, Denise;Mota, Solange;Dreyer, Gerusa;
Revista da Sociedade Brasileira de Medicina Tropical , 2008, DOI: 10.1590/S0037-86822008000100006
Abstract: the authors report on aspects of the social realities of children and adolescents living in jaboat?o dos guararapes, state of pernambuco, who were diagnosed with bancroftian filariasis infection and were treated at the filariasis teaching, research and care center of the federal university of pernambuco (health sciences center), which is a tertiary-level reference service for filariasis. the patients? housing conditions were quantified and classified as subhuman, with a direct relationship with the maintenance of bancroftian filariasis transmission, and the authors highlight the need for political decisions regarding the implementation of basic sanitation projects.
Terapia complementar em área endêmica de filariose bancroftiana, pelos Clubes da Esperan?a
Dreyer, Gerusa;Nor?es, Joaquim;Mattos, Denise;
Revista da Sociedade Brasileira de Medicina Tropical , 2006, DOI: 10.1590/S0037-86822006000400009
Abstract: in 1997 the world health organization announced an ambitious project called the global program to eliminate lymphatic filariasis, as a public health problem. the program is based on two pillars: interruption of transmission and morbidity control. experience in recife, brazil, an endemic area for bancroftian filariasis, showed that an innovative approach called hope clubs, can equip lymphedema patients with the skills, motivation, and enthusiasm to sustain effective, low-cost and convenient self-care to prevent acute skin bacterial episodes and milky urine in the case of chyluria carriers. they feel they are not alone, they regain their potential for productive work and are able to amplify these activities throughout filariasis-endemic communities.

Abstract: the rupture or fistulization of lymph vessels into the urinary system, known as chyluria (milky urine), is caused mainly by bancroftian filariasis. on rare occasions chyluria may also be caused by neoplasia, lymphatic malformation, abdominal trauma, as well as other infectious diseases such as tuberculosis. the authors proposed general guidelines to manage patients suffering from milky urine in bancroftian filariasis endemic and non-endemic areas. they emphasized the importance of a careful diagnostic process accomplished using screening procedures, evaluating a detailed history of illness and performing a careful physical examination, targeting on the most suitable diagnostic tools for each case. in addition, they emphasized the need to manage the patient from a broader perspective, which goes beyond the medical aspect, involving also social and nutritional contexts. in the great majority of cases, controlling chyluria is fundamentally based on patient education and adjustment to a low lipid, high protein diet in addition to increased fluid intake.

Psicologia: Reflex?o e Crítica , 1998,
Abstract: O trabalho compara resultados do WISC com rendimento escolar , no sentido de correlacionar medidas psicométricas de inteligência com critérios de rendimento escolar, a fim de aperfei oar a capacidade diagnóstica e preditiva do teste. Participaram 20 alunos (10 de escola pública e 10 de escola particular), de 5a a 8a séries, com idade entre 8,7 a 13,2 anos, do grupo considerado com um bom desempenho. N o houve correla o significativa entre resultados do WISC e rendimento escolar. Comparando escolas, os alunos da rede particular tiveram pontua es significativamente melhores em Compreens o [t(2,18)= 2,78; p<0,05]; Vocabulário [t(2,18)= 4,46; p<0,05]; e Código [t(2,18)= 2,7; p<00,05]; mas, no que se refere ao rendimento escolar (notas), n o houve diferen a significativa, o que pode ser explicado pelas peculiaridades dos programas escolares. O estudo discute o prejuízo dos alunos da rede pública submetidos ao WISC, especialmente na área verbal, mais suscetível à influência de variáveis sócio-culturais, o que é coerente com estudos anteriores.
Bourgin-Yang versions of the Borsuk-Ulam theorem for $p$-toral groups
Wac?aw Marzantowicz,Denise de Mattos,Edivaldo L. dos Santos
Mathematics , 2013,
Abstract: Let $ G=\bz_{p}^k$ be the $p$-torus of rank $k$, $p$ a prime, or respectively $G=\bt^k = (S^1)^k$ be a $k$-dimensional torus and let V and W be orthogonal representations of G with $V^G= W^G=\{0\}$. Let $S(V)$ be the sphere of $V$ and suppose $f : S(V)\to W$ is a $G$-equivariant mapping. We give an estimate for the dimension of the set $Z_f=f^{-1}\{0\}$ in terms of $\dim V$ and $\dim W$. This extends the Bourgin-Yang version of the Borsuk-Ulam theorem onto this class of groups. Also we provide a sufficient and necessary condition for the existence of equivariant map between spheres of two orthogonal representations of such a group. Finally, we show that for any $p$-toral group $G$ and a $G$-map $f:S(V) \to W$, with $\dim V=\infty$ and $\dim W<\infty$, we have $\dim Z_f= \infty$.
