Abstract: The aim of this study was to evaluate quality of life of patients infected with brucellosis compared to a control population from the same geographic region. The quality of life of brucellosis positive and brucellosis negative individuals from rural and urban areas of Mexico was evaluated using the Short-Form SF-36 Health Survey. This survey is a generic measure of physical and mental health-related quality of life. Data analysis was performed using one-way analysis of variance and the Tukey test. Brucellosis patients had lower overall quality of life compared with the controls. Brucellosis patients from rural areas had lower overall quality of life (P < 0.05) compared with brucellosis patients from urban areas. In conclusion, human brucellosis affects quality of life, with patients living in rural areas most severely impacted. This may be due to the lack of local public policies and programs for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of brucellosis.

Abstract: as an alternative for giving a selenium supplement, intraruminal boluses of 3 and 10 g (total weight) were designed and tested in lambs and adult sheep. the ingredients were: sodium selenite (5.23%) as source of se; to regulate its release and maintain its mass and density, fe 68.77%; cutin 25%; magnesium stearate 1%. eight pelibuey lambs (6 months of age) were used in metabolic cages for 15 d. later, they received t type ruminal cannulas, and were fed a diet low in se (0.06 μg g -1); the treatments were as follows: a control group without se, and a group supplemented with bolus of se (3 g). in the performance trial test, 20 columbia ewes were used: 10 in the control group and 10 that received bolus (10 g). in the lambs, the bolus released se without affecting the ruminal ph (p>0.05). the model for the degradation of the bolus in time effect within the ruminal medium was: weight (g) = 3.0106 - 8-5(d) - 2-6(d)2, (r = 0.97). in the behavior test with the ewes, the bolus of se increased the concentrations of blood se by 22.6 and 72% at 60 and 90 d (p<0.05). it is concluded that the intraruminal bolus used in this assay constitutes an adequate and reliable technology for correcting the deficiency of se and maintaining adequate concentrations of se in sheep.

Estudios sociales (Hermosillo, Son.) , 2013,
Abstract: La brucelosis, o fiebre de Malta, es una enfermedad zoonótica ocasionada por la bacteria intracelular del género Brucella melitensis y Brucella abortus. En el estado de Tlaxcala los caprinos son los principales reservorios y los productos lácteos no pasteurizados ocasionan da os a la salud pública. En el a o 2008 se presentó una tasa de morbilidad de 4.78/100000 habitantes, con ello se ocupó el cuarto lugar a nivel nacional; al segundo bimestre del 2011 se pasó al primer lugar nacional. El objetivo del estudio fue analizar la condición socioeconómica familiar de los individuos afectados con brucelosis en las zonas rural y urbana, evaluando la calidad de vida. Los grupos de estudio fueron seleccionados por regionalización a través del programa Arc View-3.2. Se aplicaron dos cuestionarios con los siguientes propósitos: 1) analizar la condición socioeconómica de los grupos de estudio y 2)medir la calidad de vida en los individuos infectados y sanos, empleando el método de Rand Group. Los resultados mostraron que en la zona rural, de baja condición socioeconómica, había mayor incidencia de brucelosis, interrupción en tratamientos médicos, complicaciones médicas en los individuos enfermos, menor nivel educativo, menos servicios médicos y medicamentos. La calidad de vida de los individuos infectados con brucelosis fue menor, cuando se comparó con los grupos de individuos sanos.

Abstract: El sector de Agua Potable y Saneamiento Básico en Colombia no dispone de metodología que permita medir cualitativa y cuantitativamente la situación actual y futura de la infraestructura física existente y en uso de los sistemas de acueducto y alcantarillado, lo cual difi culta al Estado realizar controles, seguimientos y ejecuciones efi cientes y seguras, respecto a las acciones, priorizaciones, inversiones técnicas, fi nancieras y de gestión. La mayoría de las localidades cuentan con infraestructura física sanitaria, pero es evidente la menguada efi ciencia con que se mantiene, mejora, opera y/o rehabilita, traducido en bajas coberturas y en agua no apta para consumo humano y por ende en serios problemas de morbimortalidad. Surge entonces la necesidad de realizar una metodología para la evaluación de la infraestructura física sanitaria existente y en uso que evalúe y califi que la calidad, la cantidad, la cobertura, la continuidad, la vida útil y el comportamiento hidráulico y estructural de cada sistema. El desacierto de las inversiones se refl eja con el estado de abandono de muchos componentes de los sistemas que nunca entraron en funcionamiento u otros que no se requerían. El peor ejemplo lo refl eja la situación en la cual el 80% de las plantas de tratamiento de agua para consumo que existen en las 47 localidades urbanas del Departamento del Tolima (Colombia) en las cuales se aplicó la metodología, una vez construidas nunca entraron en operación, además, la mayoría de las inversiones en acueductos se centran en ampliar la capacidad de captación de agua, cuando en la mayoría de los casos no se requiere.

Abstract: Objetivo. Evaluar la respuesta productiva y calidad de la carne de toretes doble propósito a la adición de grasa protegida (GP) en su dieta. Materiales y métodos. Se utilizaron 45 toretes comerciales (B. taurus x B. indicus), divididos en tres bloques de 15 animales, de acuerdo con su peso vivo en peque os, medianos y grandes. Cada bloque fue dividido en tres subgrupos de 5 animales, asignados aleatoriamente a los tratamientos 0, 1.5 y 3% de GP, en un dise o de bloques completamente al azar. Resultados. No hubo diferencias (p>0.05) en comportamiento productivo. La grasa dorsal fue mayor (p<0.05) en animales alimentados con 0% GP comparado con 3% de GP (9.6 vs 8.6 mm). No hubo diferencias (p>0.05) en área del ojo de la costilla (AC) ni pH de la carne. El contenido de proteína cruda de la carne incrementó (p<0.05) con 3% GP pero disminuyó (p<0.05) con 1.5 y 0% de GP (22.8 vs 21.6, 21.6, respectivamente). El perfil de ácidos grasos no fue diferente (p>0.05) entre tratamientos. Conclusiones. Adicionar GP a dietas para bovinos doble propósito en finalización no modificó la respuesta productiva, pero mejoró algunas características de la canal y de la carne. Se sugiere realizar más investigación, utilizando el mismo tipo de animales, con niveles mayores de GP a los usados en este estudio, ya que la respuesta pudiera mejorar.
