Revista de Enfermagem UFPE On Line , 2009,
Abstract: Objective: to characterize patients that suffered sepsis in Intensive Care Units. Methods: bibliographic research, performed in the Domínio Público and Biblioteca Virtual em Saúde (BVS/BIREME), websites, specifically Base de Dados de Enfermagem (BDENF), Literatura Latino-Americana e do Caribe em Ciências da Saúde (LILACS), Literatura Internacional em Ciências da Saúde (MEDLINE), Scientific Electronic Library Online (SciELO), with studies ranging from 2001 to April 2009. We used the search words: “Sepse” and “Unidades de Terapia Intensiva”. Results: the male gender was most affected (56%), with a related age group of 57 to 71. The main focal point for the beginning of sepsis was the pulmonary system. The most often identified pathogens were gram-negative germs (65%). The washing of hands was approached on 90% of the related studies as the main procedure for infection control. Conclusions: male individuals were most often afflicted by sepsis and averaged 65 years of age. The pulmonary system was the area most often associated with the beginning of sepsis. Gram-negative bacteria were the pathogens most often found in studies and the washing of hands was the most emphasized procedure for the prevention of infections in this environment.

Prostate Cancer , 2012, DOI: 10.1155/2012/327253
Abstract: Patients with castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC), who progress after docetaxel therapy, had until very recently, only a few therapeutic options. Recent advances in this field brought about new perspectives in the treatment of this disease. Molecular, basic, and translational research has given us a better understanding on the mechanisms of CRPC. This great investment has turned into a more rational approach to the development of new drugs. Some of the new treatments are already available to our patients outside clinical trials and may include inhibitors of androgen biosynthesis; new chemotherapy agents; bone-targeted therapy; and immunotherapy. This paper aims to review the mechanisms of prostate cancer resistance, possible therapeutic targets, as well as new options to treat CRPC. 1. Introduction Prostate cancer is the most common malignancy in males in Western countries, representing the second leading cause of cancer death [1]. Advances in screening and diagnosis have allowed detection of the disease in early stages (approximately 85% of cases diagnosed), stages at which the therapeutic options are curative and include surgery, radiation and, in some cases, active surveillance only [2–4]. However, for late-stage disseminated disease, current therapies are merely palliative. In 1941, a study of Huggins and Hodges showed the close relationship of androgens with prostate tumor growth and androgen-deprivation therapy (castration) became the key treatment for these stages in monotherapy or in combination with other methods [2, 4, 5]. Initial responses to castration therapy are quite favorable, with a significant clinical regression and rapid biochemical responses, as assessed by decline in levels of serum marker, prostate-specific antigen (PSA) in 80–90% of patients with metastatic disease [2, 4, 6]. Despite a good initial response, remissions last on average 2-3 years, with eventual progression occurring despite castration [4, 5, 7]. In these cases prostate cancer will progress to a castration-insensitive phase of disease (Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer—CRPC) which carries a worse prognosis and translates into a survival time of 16–18 months in average from the beginning of progression [2, 4–6]. Systemic therapies have also been an option in the management to these patients. However, chemotherapy is not well tolerated by all CRPC patients, who were often elderly men with limited bone marrow reserve and concurrent medical conditions [8]. In 2004 the result of two major phase 3 clinical trials established docetaxel as the first-line

ISRN Hepatology , 2013, DOI: 10.1155/2013/702167
Abstract: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) comprise a heterogeneous group of tumors that form a distinct entity. Approximately 75–80% of patients present with liver metastases at the time of their diagnosis, and 20%–25% will develop these lesions in the course of their disease. The presence of secondary deposits in the liver significantly increases the morbidity and mortality in these patients. The only potentially curative treatment is the surgical resection of the primary tumor and hepatic lesions. However, only 10% of patients presents under ideal conditions for that approach. Several techniques aimed at localized liver lesions have been applied also with interesting results in terms of survival and symptom control. The same has been demonstrated with new systemic therapies (target therapies). However, these are still under study, in order to define their true role in the management of these patients. This paper intends to address, in a general way, the various treatment options in patients with liver metastases from neuroendocrine tumors. 1. Introduction The neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are a heterogeneous group of neoplasms that share some biological characteristics, that have been addressed as a common entity [1]. In 62%–82% of the cases, the NETs are located in the digestive system, being designated as gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NETs) [2]. The latest figures from the UK, Sweden, and Switzerland suggested that their incidence is 2-3/100000 with a higher prevalence in females [1]. Also data from the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program Database report an increased incidence between 1973 and 2004 of 1.09 to 5,25/100000 [3, 4]. NETs are classically characterized by their ability to secrete hormones and/or vasoactive peptides, which results in many of their clinical manifestations, ganging up on specific hormonal syndromes. The most frequent syndrome is the carcinoid syndrome, which results from the secretion of serotonin and includes symptoms such as skin flushing, severe diarrhea, abdominal cramping, and electrolyte abnormalities [4, 5]. Their clinical course is variable, having been considered traditionally with an indolent natural history [1, 4]. However, some NETs have aggressive behavior regarding the rapid progression of metastatic lesions. All of them have the potential of metastatic dissemination and, therefore, are currently recognized as malignant neoplasms [6]. The prognosis and the approach of NETs are guided mainly according to the histological classification. The tumors with grade 3, mitotic count

Abstract: We developed a psychophysical paradigm for the clinical assessment of the contrast sensitivity (CS) mediated by the ON- and OFF-systems of the Magnocellular and Parvocellular pathways. We designed a stimulus considering two dimensions: two spatial frequencies (0.5 and 4.5 cpd) and two temporal rates of flicker (33 ms and 1500 ms). To evidence the ON- and OFF responses, the CS was measured for two polarities of light with luminance changes of 0.6 dB steps above and below the medium luminance grey background. We tested 38 healthy volunteers. The results shows that Magnocellular contrast sensitivity was higher than Parvocellular for the 33 ms flickering stimulus and the Parvocellular contrast sensitivity was higher than Magnocellular for 1500 ms stimuli. The reliability of the test was checked and confirmed. We concluded that the test performs a rapid measurement of the CS mediated by the ON and OFF systems of Magnocellular and Parvocellular pathways. It is useful in clinical protocols due to its high sensitivity and good reliability.
