Abstract: Medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaws (MRONJ) is a relatively new disease. MARX reported first cases in 2003. MRONJ relates to oral and parenteral bisphosphonates as well as to the so-called target cancer therapies but the list of medications only grows. Although MRONJ is a relatively rare condition, it can be associated to significant morbidity with feeding limitations and intense pain. More severe cases can lead to potentially life-threatening infections. Every patient initiating bisphosphonate and/or target cancer therapy must visit a dentist before starting medication because preventive measures for MRONJ are much more effective compared to surgical management of the lesions. Surgical resolution can be especially difficult to obtain in the coexistence of certain complication factors like wider bone exposures, history of nitrogen containing bisphosphonates use (mainly zolendronate) and immunodeficiency. Recently, researchers have given attention to laser therapy associated to photosensitive agents as a possible option to management of some MRONJ lesions. Our case report demonstrates the use of photodynamic therapy in a denosumab related lesion in the mandible. It seems that denosumab related lesions are more amenable to treatment and total resolution because of the marked differences between its chemical and metabolic characteristics when compared to bisphosphonates.
Uma busca por evidências do asset growth effect no Ibovespa: um estudo exploratório
Ribeiro, Fernanda Vieira Fernandes;
Revista Contabilidade & Finan?as , 2010, DOI: 10.1590/S1519-70772010000300004
Abstract: the main objective of this study is to analyze, for brazil, the existence of an intriguing question in the international literature: firms with lower growth in total assets observed superior returns compared to those with higher growth. therefore, the bovespa index was considered as a proxy for the brazilian market. among the companies in the index, non-financial firms were selected, for which data were available for the period from 2000 to 2009. in order to verify whether there is a negative relationship between total assets growth and stock returns, we first separated them into four portfolios, based on the weighted average growth of total assets, and the logarithmic returns were calculated. in addition to descriptive statistics, a correlation matrix, adf unit root test, linear regressions and annual panel data were developed. based on the results, we concluded that it is not possible to say that this relationship exists in brazil as the tests were not statistically significant. one possible reason for these results is that brazil has lines of funding from official bodies, with low interest rates, which influences the market to react even positively in view of a growth in total assets.

Revista de Nutri??o , 2010, DOI: 10.1590/S1415-52732010000300003
Abstract: objective: this study aimed to characterize the nutritional status of an elderly population and verify its relationship with cardiovascular risk factors and metabolic syndrome. methods: nutritional status and prevalence of cardiovascular risk factors and metabolic syndrome were assessed in an elderly population from a city in the state of rio grande do sul, in the south of brazil. body mass index, according to the lipschitz classification of 1994, was used to determine their nutritional status. metabolic syndrome diagnosis was based on the international diabetes federation criteria. results: among the studied elderly, 42% of the males and 50% of the females were overweight. hypertension, diabetes mellitus, metabolic syndrome, central obesity, low high density lipoprotein-cholesterol levels and high triglyceride levels were more common in overweight individuals than in normal weight individuals of both genders. using the normal weight individuals as reference, the overweight were at greater risk of systemic hypertension, diabetes mellitus and metabolic syndrome, with an odds ratio of 3.3 (ci95%: 1.7 to 6.4), 3.3 (ci95%: 1.48 to 7.1) and 6.9 (ci95%: 3.2 to 14.6) respectively, while the underweight tended towards a lower odds ratio for the same diseases. conclusion: the odds ratios for the presence of hypertension, diabetes mellitus and metabolic syndrome were associated with nutritional status determined by body mass index. the odds ratios are progressively higher in the overweight and lower in the underweight, regardless of age and gender.

PIER , 2009, DOI: 10.2528/PIER09091001
Abstract: A one dimensional tunable periodic structure in microstip technology on gallium arsenide (GaAs) substrate is numerically investigated. The unit cell contains a number of patches positioned between the ground plane and the microstrip line. The patches, representing reactive loads, can be selectively short-circuited by externally-ontrolled FET switches integrated in the hosting substrate. The possibility of controlling the position of the band-gap, and implicitly the value of the effective dielectric constant along the line, for different combinations of the switches is demonstrated.
A qualidade do solo afeta a germina??o das sementes e o desenvolvimento das plantulas de Dimorphandra mollis Benth. (Leguminosae: Mimosoideae)
Fagundes, Marcílio;Camargos, Maria Gisely;Costa, Fernanda Vieira da;
Acta Botanica Brasilica , 2011, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-33062011000400018
Abstract: the exploitative collection of dimorphandra mollis fruits by farmers has negatively affected the natural population dynamics of this species. the aim of this study was to compare the effects of three soil types (cerrado sand soil, cerrado clay soil and dry forest soil) on seed germination and seedling development of d. mollis. the seeds of d. mollis showed greater germinability in cerrado sand soil (60.5%), followed by cerrado clay soil (29.7%) and dry forest soil (13.6%). the seedling root growth in cerrado sand soil was higher compared to cerrado clay soil and dry forest soil. however, no differences were verified for root dry mass between the soil treatments. the seedlings of d. mollis cultivated in dry forest soil presented a higher growth rate and total dry mass. these results are probably associated with higher nutrient availability, which was verified in the dry forest soil when compared to the cerrado soils. our results indicate that d. mollis seeds need a low water-retaining substrate to increase the germination rate and that seedlings develop better in nutrient-rich soils.

Abstract: affirmative actions are social measures that seek to democratize the access to jobs and education. in brazilian higher education, those actions consist of programs of vacancy quotes in universities for historically excluded social groups. the issue is complex in relation to defining ethnical and/or social criteria. the aim of this article, using state-of-art literature review, is to contribute in the discussion about affirmative action in brazilian higher education, based on the survey of the state of the art in the last five years. electronic data bases were used (scopus and jstor) and bardin's (1977) content analysis was carried out. the results were organized into three analysis units: (a) a dichotomy existing between articles for and against the measures; (b) improvement on the debate about "diversity"; and (c) a dialectical, more integrated and reflective view. the findings contributed for elucidating the current state of affirmative action in the brazilian context of devising public policies for higher education.

Abstract: university quotas are measures that aim to increase the possibilities of entrance into higher education by specific social groups. that is an embracing issue that addresses not only the scarceness of vacancies in higher education, but also aspects about subjectivity and ethnic-racial issues. this study aims to analyze the opinion about university quotas by a group of students attending preparatory courses. in this study, 107 students have participated and were distributed into two groups: group a (communitarian courses, n = 53) and group b (private courses, n = 54). the study was conducted in two stages: (1) application of quotas' questionnaire, and (2) individual interviews. results point out that the university quotas issue is superficially explored and stereotyped by students. the social criteria to define quotas was more accepted by them than the ethnic-racial one. finally, the paper proposes that debates about university quotas should be furthered targeting to supervise practices.
