Antioxidant capacity and biological activity of essential oil and methanol extract of Conobea scoparioides (Cham. & Schltdl.) Benth.
Rebelo, Monaliza M.;Silva, Joyce Kelly R. da;Andrade, Eloísa Helena A.;Maia, José Guilherme S.;
Journal of the Brazilian Chemical Society , 2009, DOI: 10.1590/S0103-50532009000600005
Abstract: the essential oils of the sub-aquatic plant conobea scoparioides (fresh and dried previously) showed yields of 3.4 and 3.3%, respectively. the main identified constituents were thymol methyl ether (39.6 and 47.7%), thymol (40.0 and 26.4%), α-phellandrene (12.1 and 14.3%) and p-cymene (1.5 and 1.7%), totalizing more than 90% of the oils. the dpph radical scavenging activity (ec50) of the oils and extract was 46.7 ± 3.6 μg ml-1 in the fresh plant (cso-f), 56.1 ± 2.4 μg ml-1 in the dried plant (cso-d), and 23.0 ± 2.2 μg ml -1 in the methanol extract. the extract (cse-d)value is comparable to bht (19.8 ± 0.5 μg ml-1) used as antioxidant standard. the mean value of the oils is twice smaller but equally important as antioxidant agent. the mean amount of total phenolics (tp, 124.6 ± 8.7 mg gae per g) and the trolox equivalent (teac, 144.1 ± 4.9 mg te per g) of the methanol extract confirmed the significant antioxidant activity of c. scoparioides. similarly, in the brine shrimp bioassay (artemia salina) the mean value of the lethal concentration for the oils (lc50, 7.7 ± 0.3 μg ml-1) was ten times higher than the methanol extract (lc50, 77.6 ± 7.1 μg ml-1) showing important biological activity.

Silva, Mariana Benatto Pereira da;Pereira, Mario Eduardo Costa;Celeri, Eloísa Helena Valler;
Revista Latinoamericana de Psicopatologia Fundamental , 2010, DOI: 10.1590/S1415-47142010000200004
Abstract: the present work deals with the issue of the analyst's desire in the psychoanalytical treatment of anorexia. it analyzes important elements to establish transference in these cases, as the pursuit of death and the choice of refusing food as a way of controlling the demands of the other. it then discusses the "analist's desire" function in this clinic. rejecting the definition of a treatment model and the structural categorization of anorexia, we can find in the cases of the girl of angouleme (charcot) and sidonie (m. mannoni) present possible subjective ways to get out of this psychopathological impasse, by means of this function.
