Acta Cirurgica Brasileira , 2004,
Abstract: PURPOSE: To demonstrate the effects of the use of sunflower seed oil on the treatment of skin wounds. METHODS: Eighteen male Saint Inês lambs were divided in 3 groups according to the pos-operative (7, 14 and 21 days). After antisepsis and local anestesia, two 4cm2 wounds on each side of the thoracic region, close to the scapule were surgically produced. The experimental wounds were treated with sunflower seed oil, with high concentration of linoleic acid (LA), and the control ones with sterilized Vaseline. Biopsies of the pos-operative wounds tissue were performed on the 7th, 14th, 21st days and histologically evaluated. RESULTS: Topic application of sunflower seed oil accelerated healing process at the 7th and 21st days, reducing wound area and increasing wound contraction. Granulation tissue increased faster on treated wounds. The epidermis of the treated wounds was completely recovered when compared to control wounds. CONCLUSION: The topic use of sunflower seed oil accelerated the healing process, and it can be used as an alternative therapy on second intention wound healing.

The material used in this research was consisted of 3 placentas of Bradypus variegatus of adult females (Briton, 1941) original of the Forests of the City of Recife and Zone of the Forest of the State of Pernambuco with average weight 4,2 Kg. Placentas were fixed in buffered glutaraldehyed 4%, pH 7,4, 0,1M and processed goes optical microscopy. Macroscopically was observed that the placenta of the sloth is composed of discoidal lobes and had the fundal position of the uterine cavity. The fetal membranes identified were chorium, applied on the uterine surface and, amnion adherent to inner face of chorium. In the specimen examined presented vestige of allantois sack and vitelline sack in these gestational phase. Anatomically, placenta of Bradypus variegatus could be classified like chorium-amniotic. Microscopic analysis of the placenta showed endothelial cells of maternal vessel hypertrophied and fetal components without cellular limits identified. The fetal tissue presented an epithelioid aspect with fetal vessel surrounded to connective tissue and epithelioid cells or next to maternal vessel. According our description, Placenta of Bradypus variegatus could be classified microscopically in syndesmochorial and endotheliochorial El mamífero euterion perezoso, perteneciente al orden Edentata, sub-orden Xenarthra, infra-orden Tardigrada, familia Bradipodidae, comprende tres especímenes, Bradypus tridadctylus, Bradypus variegates y Bradypus torquatus. Pocos trabajos fueron encontrados en la literatura relacionados con la anatomía de la placenta de este especimen. Usamos 3 placentas de hembras de Bradypus variegatus (Briton, 1941) provenientes de la Floresta de la ciudad de Recife y Zona de la Floresta del Estado de Pernambuco, Brasil. Las placentas tenía un peso promedio de 4,2 Kg y fueron fijadas en glutaraldehido tamponeado al 4%, pH 7,4, 0,1M y procesadas para microscopía óptica. Macroscópicamente se observó que la placenta del perezoso estaba compuesta por lóbulos discoidales y ocupaba una posición en el fondo de la cavidad uterina. Las membranas fetales identificadas fueron el corion, aplicado en la superficie uterina y amnios adherido a la cara interna del corion. El especimen examinado presentaba vestigios de sacos alantoideo y

Abstract: the influence of seasonal climatic changes on tannin concentrations was examined in two caatinga (semi-arid) plant species (myracrodruon urundeuva (engl.) fr. all. and anadenanthera colubrina (vell.) brenan). the folin-ciocalteau method was used to quantify total phenols, and the casein precipitation method was used for tannins. in general, there is a close relationship between tannin levels and rainfall, although species seem to adopt different strategies of tannin compound production in response to periods of drought and rainfall in the caatinga.

Abstract: The Caatinga ecosystem covers approximately 800,000 km2 of northeastern Brazil. This region is marked by a severe climate with accentuated dryness (rainfall is usually less than 600 mm/yr) [1]. This ecosystem has suffered from the effects of increasing anthropogenic alteration for many decades, resulting in the conversion of extensive areas to pasture or farm land and the intensive harvesting of wood products, especially as energy sources [2-7].Woody caatinga species are employed for many different purposes, especially the direct use of wood products. Anadenanthera colubrina (Vell.) Brenan, known in northeastern Brazil as "angico", for example, is largely used in rural constructions, as an energy source, as well as in popular medicines [2,3]. In light of its ample use, "angico" was indicated as high priority for in situ conservation at the 1st Technical Reunion for "Strategies for the Conservation and Management of the Genetic Resources of Medicinal and Aromatic Plants in Brazil" [8]."Angico" belongs to the family Mimosaceae and is widely distributed in the caatinga. The tree grows to between 5 and 20 meters tall, and the trunk has large numbers of conspicuous thorns (characteristic of this species) [9] (Figure 1). It is used in traditional medicine to treat respiratory problems and inflammations, as well as in industry for tanning leather [10]. The seeds of Anadenanthera peregrina (L.) Speng., an related species, are used to prepare yopo, a hallucinogenic inhalant used by the curandeiros of the Piaroa tribe inhabiting southeastern Venezuela [11]. The use of yopo as a hallucinogenic among indigenous peoples of Latina America has been confirmed by archeological evidences [12].The present work examines the use of A. colubrina by a rural community in the semi-arid region of Pernambuco State in northeastern Brazil. We also attempted to identify the techniques employed in the local management of this species, and to evaluate the sustainability of this use by examining th

Abstract: the present work evaluated the development of embryogenic callus from transversal ovary sections. the experiments were carried out under two experimental regimes using combinations of iaa (0; 5.71; 8.56; 11.42; 14.27μm) and 2,4-d (0; 13.57; 18.10; 22.62μm) or combinations of 2,4-d with ba (0; 4.43; 6.65; 8.87; 11.09μm). assessments were made of anatomical aspects of the callus and for the presence of embryogenic structures using cytochemical and histological analyses and stereomicroscopic and scanning electronic microscopic observations. treatments with 2,4-d and iaa produced friable calluses demonstrating cellular acquisition of morphogenetic competence as well as the formation of pro-embryogenic sectors. the expression of embryogenic program could be observed, with proembryogenic cell clusters developing into globular embryos. these results offer the possibility of using new types of explants for culturing helicons that avoid the growth of endophytic bacteria.

Abstract: numerous plant species are used throughout the world to achieve the modified states of conscientiousness. some of them have been used for the therapeutic purposes, such as mimosa tenuiflora (willd) poir. (family mimosaceae) known as "jurema-preta", an hallucinogenic plant traditionally used for curing and divination by the indians of northeastern brazil. in this review, several aspects of the use, phytochemistry, and pharmacology of this plant are considered.

Abstract: the continued use of corn hybrids with varied resistance to grain rot-causing fungal agents increases the importance of these diseases every year. the objective of this work was to evaluate, by a sanitary test (blotter test), the severity of the fungus fusarium verticilioides and the incidence of stenocarpella maydis and stenocarpella macrospora in corn grain from commercial hybrids, with and without in-field artificial inoculation, under two cultivation systems (conventional and direct sowing), over two crop seasons. the experiment was carried out under field conditions, using an experimental randomized blocks design, with three replications. in the laboratory, the severity of f. verticilioides and the incidence of s. maydis and s. macrospora ,the causative agents of ear rot in corn, were evaluated by the "blotter test" method. the blotter test evaluation allowed us to detect differences between the hybrids in their reactions to the fungi f. verticilioides, s. maydis and s. macrospora. the crop season and cultivation system used had the most influence on fungal infection in the hybrids. the direct sowing system showed an increase in the fungal infection responsible for causing grain rot. the use of artificial inoculation, in-field, to select genotypes resistant to the fungal agents causing the "grain rot complex" is efficient.
