Predictors of 10-year hospital use in a community-dwelling population of Brazilian elderly: the Bambuí cohort study of aging
Macinko, James;Camargos, Vitor;Firmo, Josélia O. A.;Lima-Costa, Maria Fernanda;
Cadernos de Saúde Pública , 2011, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-311X2011001500003
Abstract: we use data from a population-based cohort of elderly brazilians to assess predictors of hospitalizations during ten years of follow-up. participants were 1,448 persons aged 60 years and over at baseline (1997). the outcome was self-reported number of hospitalizations per year. slightly more than a fifth (23%) experienced no hospitalizations during the 10 year follow-up. about 30% had 1-2 events, 31% had between 3 and 7 events, and about 18% had 8 or more events during this time. results of multivariable hurdle and cox proportional hazards models showed that the risk of hospitalization was positively associated with male sex, increased age, chronic conditions, and visits to the doctors in the previous 12 months. underweight was a predictor of any hospitalization, while obesity was an inconsistent predictor of hospitalization.
Tendências em dez anos das condi??es de saúde de idosos brasileiros: evidências da Pesquisa Nacional por Amostra de Domicílios (1998, 2003, 2008)

Abstract: data from a representative national household survey were used to examine 10-year trends (1998-2008) in health conditions of brazilian elderly. a random sample of 105,254 individuals aged > 60 years participated. the mean age was 69 years and 56% were women. there was a gradual increase in the prevalence of good or excellent self-rated health (39.3%, 43.5% and 45.0%, in 1998, 2003 and 2008, respectively) and a decrease in self-reported arthritis, heart disease, and depression. the prevalence of self-reported hypertension (43.9%, 48.8%, and 53.3%, respectively) and diabetes (10.3%, 13.0% and 16.1% respectively) increased sharply. the prevalence of inability to perform activities of daily living (eating, bathing or using the toilet) remained stable (6.5%, 6.4% and 6.9%, respectively). the achievement of three or more physician visits over the previous 12 months increased by 21% from 1998 to 2008. hospitalization decreased by 10% in the corresponding period. the above mentioned trends persisted after adjustments for age and sex. the results showed improvements in some health dimensions of the elderly, but not all. changes in the use of health services occurred as expected with the expansion of primary healthcare activities in brazil.
Violência: objeto de troca
Walty, Ivete Lara Camargos;
Alea : Estudos Neolatinos , 2003, DOI: 10.1590/S1517-106X2003000100007
Abstract: this study of violence was accomplished through an analysis of oral reports, which were made by homeless street people in belo horizonte, brazil. those reports were viewed in this study as a space of reflection and refraction of social norms. violence of the excluded is seen then as a form of agonizing speech of a social segment that searches for visibility and hearing. from this perspective, a process of exchange and reciprocity really occurs insofar as the excluded pay back according to the same exchange rate that is used with what is given to them.
Conception of language and literature: approaches
Moacir Lopes de Camargos
Via Litterae , 2009,
Abstract: The aim of this paper is to provide a discussion about the relationship between literature and language. In order to discuss this relationship, I argue that we need to consider a language and literature conception that integrates subject and language. If we separate these objects, a very common fact in schools nowadays, the use of literary language as a mere pretext to continue teaching the classical dichotomy between standard language (considered a correct model to follow) and a popular language (considered full of mistakes and needs to be constantly re-elaborated) won’t offer us an opportunity to think those objects. If we teachers continue to act this way in our own practice, we may lose the best thing literature offers to us through language: its human force (Antonio Candido, 1995).

Características das prescri??es no transtorno de déficit de aten??o/hiperatividade
Camargos Jr., Walter;Nicolato, Rodrigo;
Jornal Brasileiro de Psiquiatria , 2009, DOI: 10.1590/S0047-20852009000300009
Abstract: objective: the paper seeks to know the reality of the prescriptions for the attention deficit/ hyperactivity disorder. method: non-systematic review of the descriptors "attention deficit / hyperactivity disorder" and "medication prescriptions", in portuguese and in english similar. the limiters were: 10 years publishings until november 2008, english, french, spanish and portuguese languages, in medline, scielo, lilacs, specialized areas and cochrane data base. the articles concerning the drug illicit use and clinical aspects have not been used. results: eight items were dealt with: prescriptions system, socio-cultural characteristics and health systems that have influence on the prescriptions, medication use span, increasing prescriptions, common aspects, dosage and prescription to below 5 years old children. conclusions: some aspects are worrying, such as the low adhesion to the medical treatments, relatively low average doses and psychostimulants increasing prescriptions even for children up to 3 years old. social characteristics and the health system used by the affected ones give origin to great variations on the clinical practice. an interesting issue is the evidence that the brazilian prescriptions system isn't the most restrictive one.
Quando a lei é surda: um caso recente na história da rela??o entre psicologia e direito
Camargos, Liliane;Belo, Fábio;

A dual role of selenium in the growth control of seedlings of Stylosanthes humilis  [PDF]
Dimas Mendes Ribeiro, Ana Maria Mapeli, Werner Camargos Antunes, Raimundo Santos Barros
Agricultural Sciences (AS) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/as.2011.22012
Abstract: The growth of seedlings of Townsville sytlo (Stylosanthes humilis H.B.K.) is inhibited by aluminium (Al) ions, their elongation being re-covered with sodium selenate at 1.0 µM. Methyl viologen and hydrogen peroxide, reactive oxy-gen species (ROS)-generating compounds, also inhibited seedling elongation and again growth was relieved by selenate. Selenate, thus, seemed to be operating as a ROS quencher, since N-acetylcysteine (NAC), an antioxidant com-pound, also stimulated largely the growth of Al-inhibited seedlings. At a higher concentra-tion (0.1 mM), however, selenate inhibited seed-ling growth and elongation was recovered by NAC. Ethylene production by selenate plus NAC-treated seedlings was very higher and thus the gaseous hormone was not responsible for the seedling growth inhibition caused by sele-nate. Hence, it seems that at high levels sele-nate operates as a ROS-generating compound whose effects were counteracted by NAC. It can be deduced that, at low concentration, sele-nates behave as a ROS quencher and at high level as a ROS-promoting species.
