Abstract: the commitment of immune system, which may be presented by individuals with chronic diseases, leading to a low immune response. one of the treatments used for acute injuries in tendons is the low-power laser, however there is a gap in relation to its use in immunosuppression. the objective of this study was to analyze if low-level laser therapy is effective for the treatment of pain in immunosuppressed rats subjected to trauma tendon. we used 23 male rats of wistar strain, divided randomly in three groups: control group, placebo and laser. the animals were immunosuppressed (by administration of cyclosporin a) and underwent right achilles tendon injury, with impact of about 0.40 j. for treatment, we used low-level laser, 670 nm, 30 mw and 2 j/cm2, during 3 days. pain assessment was performed by the functional incapacitation test and von frey filament digital. the results showed a reduction of functional pain and pressure pain on the plantar surface and the injured site (right achilles tendon) for the laser group. therefore, we concluded that the low-power laser is effective for reducing pain in immunosuppressed rats subjected to trauma tendon.
How Gamelan Music Has Influenced Me as a Music Therapist - A Personal Account
Helen Loth
Voices: A World Forum for Music Therapy , 2006,
Abstract: This essay discusses how the playing of Indonesian Gamelan music has influenced my work as a music therapist. Having played Gamelan music for 23 years it is part of my musical identity. I reflect on what drew me to the Gamelan and the relevance this has to its use in music therapy practice. I feel that the unique ways in which the group plays together in this music have influenced how I work musically in my clinical group-work. These features include the lack of a conductor and consequent emphasis on listening and responding to aural cues, group communication, the culture of inclusion and the lack of hierarchy. I also discuss how I have used gamelan in the training of music therapy students and consider some directions for future research.
Pure extensions of locally compact abelian groups
Peter Loth
Mathematics , 2005,
Abstract: In this paper, we study the group Pext(C,A) for locally compact abelian (LCA) groups A and C. Sufficient conditions are established for Pext(C,A) to coincide with the first Ulm subgroup of Ext(C,A). Some structural information on pure injectives in the category of LCA groups is obtained. Letting K denote the class of LCA groups which can be written as the topological direct sum of a compactly generated group and a discrete group, we determine the groups G in K which are pure injective in the category of LCA groups. Finally we describe those groups G in K such that every pure extension of G by a group in K splits and obtain a corresponding dual result.

Abstract: objective: to assess the effect of high-voltage cathodic current on pain from a sciatica experimental model. methods: a total of 16 male wistar rats were submitted to the sciatica experimental model in the right hind paw. they were divided into sham group (gs) and group treated with cathodic current (gp-) for 20 min/daily, for 10 days). the model of sciatic compression was performed with a 4.0-chromic catgut thread tie in four points of the sciatic nerve. assessment of nociception was performed by measuring the time during which the animal held its hind paw in a guarded position (thhp) and the pressure withdrawal threshold, by use of a digital electronic analgesymeter. data collection was carried out before the sciatica experimental model (as1), three days after compression (before, as2, and after treatment, as3), and five and 10 days after treatment (as4 and as5, respectively). results: according to the functional disability test, both groups showed an increase in nociception, with no reduction at any assessment time. submitted to pressure, however, gs showed a reduction in the hind paw withdrawal threshold at all assessment times, while gp- showed a reduction in the hind paw withdrawal threshold only initially - at as5, the threshold was restored. conclusion: no change in nociception was observed on functional assessment; however, on pressure hind paw withdrawal assessment, the treatment with cathodic current showed to be effective with the summation of therapies.

Abstract: this study aimed at evaluating and comparing the effects of low-level laser therapy (lllt) and a forced swimming training in a joint nociception model on wistar rats, in order to functionally register pain by observation of paw elevation time (pet) during gait on a metal cylinder. thirty-two wistar rats were divided into four groups: cg - non-treated animals submitted to nociception induction on right knee; lg - nociception and treated with 670 nm and 8 j/cm2 lllt; sg - nociception and swimming for 10 minutes in water at 30-32o c; slg - nociception and treated with swimming and laser. to achieve the nociception, 50 μl of 5% formalin were injected in the medial tibiofemoral space of each animal. pain was assessed according to a functional incapacity test, which registered paw elevation time (pet) as well as their gait for one minute on a metallic cylinder. the evaluations occurred before nociception induction (ev1), after 15 minutes (ev2) and after 30 minutes (ev3) of it, with treatment protocols being administered after ev2. the analyses showed that lllt was the only group to present the restoration values in the ev3 when compared to ev1. sg was the only one which did not show any reduction when compared to ev2 and ev3. hence, it can be inferred that, by functional evaluation, lllt had some analgesic effects, while the swimming treatment produced pain increase, which was partially reversed by the use of lllt

Abstract: rapd markers have been used for the analysis of genetic differentiation of aedes aegypti, because they allow the study of genetic relationships among populations. the aim of this study was to identify populations in different geographic regions of the s?o paulo state in order to understand the infestation pattern of a. aegypti. the dendrogram constructed with the combined data set of the rapd patterns showed that the mosquitoes were segregated into two major clusters. mosquitoes from the western region of the s?o paulo state constituted one cluster and the other was composed of mosquitoes from a laboratory strain and from a coastal city, where the largest latin american port is located. these data are in agreement with the report on the infestation in the s?o paulo state. the genetic proximity was greater between mosquitoes whose geographic origin was closer. however, mosquitoes from the coastal city were genetically closer to laboratory-reared mosquitoes than to field-collected mosquitoes from the s?o paulo state. the origin of the infestation in this place remains unclear, but certainly it is related to mosquitoes of origins different from those that infested the west and north region of the state in the 80's.

Abstract: RAPD markers have been used for the analysis of genetic differentiation of Aedes aegypti, because they allow the study of genetic relationships among populations. The aim of this study was to identify populations in different geographic regions of the S o Paulo State in order to understand the infestation pattern of A. aegypti. The dendrogram constructed with the combined data set of the RAPD patterns showed that the mosquitoes were segregated into two major clusters. Mosquitoes from the Western region of the S o Paulo State constituted one cluster and the other was composed of mosquitoes from a laboratory strain and from a coastal city, where the largest Latin American port is located. These data are in agreement with the report on the infestation in the S o Paulo State. The genetic proximity was greater between mosquitoes whose geographic origin was closer. However, mosquitoes from the coastal city were genetically closer to laboratory-reared mosquitoes than to field-collected mosquitoes from the S o Paulo State. The origin of the infestation in this place remains unclear, but certainly it is related to mosquitoes of origins different from those that infested the West and North region of the State in the 80's.
