Sanches, Lucas Augusto Thomé;Pittner, Elaine;Sanches, Hermes Francisco;Monteiro, Marta Chagas;

Abstract: the aim of this study was to evaluate the detection of new cases of leprosy in prudentópolis, state of paraná, from 1998 to 2005. additionally, we investigated the age group and predominant clinical form of leprosy cases. data were obtained from clinical-epidemiological records of confirmed leprosy cases that were notified in the information system for notifiable diseases, between 1998 and 2005. over this period, 222 leprosy cases were notified, of which 63% presented the multibacillary form, with predominance of the virchow clinical form, thus indicating a process of intense disease transmission. among these leprosy cases, 35% of the patients were at an economically active age (31 to 45 years old). these indicators showed that there was a high level of bacillus circulation in the community, considering that one risk factor for infection by the bacillus mycobacterium leprae is contact with untreated individuals who have the multibacillary form. this is despite the drastic reduction in leprosy prevalence over the last two decades, through the implementation of polychemotherapy and other preventive measures.

Cintia Mussi Milani, César Augusto Thomé, Rosangela Sayuri Saga Kamikawa, Mariana Daniel da Silva, Maria Angela Naval Machado
Open Journal of Stomatology (OJST) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ojst.2012.21009
Abstract: Cementoblastoma is a rare benign lesion that represents less than 1% of all odontogenic tumours. It’s characterized by proliferation of cementum-like tissue and in almost all cases tends to be associated with an erupted permanent tooth, most often the first mo- lar. We present an unusual case of a large cemento-blastoma that affected the right mandibular body, extending from the first premolar to the second molar, of a 19-years-old male. In this case an initial surgery was attempted under local anaesthesia, resulting in incomplete tumor removal. A second surgical procedure was performed under general anaesthesia, ensuring the complete excision of the lesion. The patient was monitored for 1 year after surgery and did not show any signs of recurrence.
Quantum computing applied to calculations of molecular energies: CH2 benchmark
Libor Veis,Ji?í Pittner
Physics , 2010, DOI: 10.1063/1.3503767
Abstract: Quantum computers are appealing for their ability to solve some tasks much faster than their classical counterparts. It was shown in [Aspuru-Guzik et al., Science 309, 1704 (2005)] that they, if available, would be able to perform the full configuration interaction (FCI) energy calculations with a polynomial scaling. This is in contrast to conventional computers where FCI scales exponentially. We have developed a code for simulation of quantum computers and implemented our version of the quantum full configuration interaction algorithm. We provide a detailed description of this algorithm and the results of the assessment of its performance on the four lowest lying electronic states of CH2 molecule. This molecule was chosen as a benchmark, since its two lowest lying 1A1 states exhibit a multireference character at the equilibrium geometry. It has been shown that with a suitably chosen initial state of the quantum register, one is able to achieve the probability amplification regime of the iterative phase estimation algorithm even in this case.
David Ingersoll, Behavioralism and the Modern Revival of Legal Realism  [PDF]
Thom Brooks
Beijing Law Review (BLR) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/blr.2015.63018
Abstract: David Ingersoll’s essay “Karl Llewellyn, American Legal Realism and Contemporary Legal Behavioralism” is a significant, but neglected contribution to our understanding of legal realism in the United States. This article argues that it first anticipates the shape of legal realism’s revival today and shows that Ingersoll was ahead of his time. The once dominant school of legal realism had become a much maligned theory of law when this essay was first published. Ingersoll identifies two varieties of legal realism and most critics focus on only one of them. He argues that legal realism should be revived if it develops its second variety often overlooked which accepts rule skepticism and recognizes the importance of social psychology to predicting legal outcomes more reliably.
Desenvolvimento e testes de uma semeadora-adubadora modular para pequenas propriedades rurais
Arend, Lucas;Forcellini, Fernando A.;Weiss, Augusto;
Engenharia Agrícola , 2005, DOI: 10.1590/S0100-69162005000300027
Abstract: this work presents the development and field tests of a modular agricultural implement. a modular design product methodology was used for the implement development, and the main objective was the development of a modular system to improve the actual situation of mechanization on small countryside properties. the development focus was kept on some implements for conservative cultivation. for its modularity, the implement developed attained the functions of seeding - fertilizing, scarification and furrowing the soil. for the function of seeding-fertilizing can be used either narrow chisels or double disc, for the furrowing function a specific tool can be used. the main tubular chassis allowed an easily interchangeability between both functions (seed-season and furrow-season). the results for typical oxisoils with humidity around of 20.5% and dry mass of 11.5 t ha-1 for the aspect of seed-fertilize with double chisels were satisfactory, in relation with parameters like road skidding traction, deep regularity distribution, coverage and longitudinal distribution of the seeds and emerging plants.
Biocompatible medical implant materials with binding sites for a biodegradable drug-delivery system
Al-Dubai H,Pittner G,Pittner F,Gabor F
Nanotechnology, Science and Applications , 2011,
Abstract: Haifa Al-Dubai1, Gisela Pittner1, Fritz Pittner1, Franz Gabor21Max F Perutz Laboratories, Department of Biochemistry, University of Vienna, Vienna, Austria; 2Department of Pharmaceutical Technology and Biopharmaceutics, Faculty of Life Sciences, University of Vienna, Vienna, AustriaAbstract: Feasibility studies have been carried out for development of a biocompatible coating of medical implant materials allowing the binding of biodegradable drug-delivery systems in a way that their reloading might be possible. These novel coatings, able to bind biodegradable nanoparticles, may serve in the long run as drug carriers to mediate local pharmacological activity. After biodegradation of the nanoparticles, the binding sites could be reloaded with fresh drug-delivering particles. As a suitable receptor system for the nanoparticles, antibodies are anchored. The design of the receptor is of great importance as any bio- or chemorecognitive interaction with other components circulating in the blood has to be avoided. Furthermore, the binding between receptor and the particles has to be strong enough to keep them tightly bound during their lifetime, but on the other hand allow reloading after final degradation of the particles. The nanoparticles suggested as a drug-delivery system for medical implants can be loaded with different pharmaceuticals such as antibiotics, growth factors, or immunosuppressives. This concept may enable the changing of medication, even after implantation of the medical device, if afforded by patients’ needs.Keywords: antibody immobilization, biocompatible coating, chitosan nanoparticles, drug targeting, medical device
Anurans, Northern Tocantins River Basin, states of Tocantins and Maranh o, Brazil.
Brasileiro, C. A.,Lucas, E. M.,Oyamaguchi, H. M.,Thomé, M. T. C.
Check List , 2008,
Abstract: This study presents a list of anurans in the northern region of the Tocantins River Basin (states of Tocantins and Maranh o), with information regarding seasonality, habitat, and microhabitat. We recorded 38 species in 15 genera and seven families. Most species (47 %) occurred exclusively in open areas and only 11 % of the species were found in forest habitats. Around 82 % of species were observed in ponds and only 7 % occurred in streams. Regarding seasonality, 54 % were observed both in the rainy and dry seasons. The northern area of the Cerrado has being rapidly converted in monocultures and information on its anuran fauna is limited. Additional information on its biodiversity is needed in order to provide the framework for conservation strategies.

Boletim do Museu Paraense Emílio Goeldi : Ciências Naturais , 2010,
Abstract: This paper describes the avifauna sampled at Reserva Extrativista Chico Mendes, Acre, Brazil, during October and November, 2008. We recorded 344 bird species of 17 orders and 57 families through point counts, mist-nets and general observations. The most prevalent families were Tyrannidae, Thamnophilidae and Thraupidae with 53, 36 and 22 species, respectively. We recorded some range restricted, little know, and habitat specialists birds exemplified by Crypturellus atrocapillus, C. strigulosus, Primolius couloni, Aulacorhynchus prasinus, Drymophila devillei, Simoxenops ucayalae, Cnipodectes superrufus, Hemitriccus flammulatus, Percnostola lophotes, Xiphorhynchus chunchotambo, and Conioptilon mcilhennyi. Although we surveyed only during the dry season, the rarefaction curves indicate a satisfactory sampling effort. The data show that the Chico Mendes reserve holds a unique Amazonian bird community, which is influenced by the presence of bamboo and second growth vegetation. The results of this paper reinforce the biological importance of the RESEX and highlight the need for more inventories and bird studies at this isolated and little known region of the Brazilian Amazon.

Health (Health) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/health.2014.621331
Abstract: Background: Recent researches involving fatigue and Parkinson’s disease (PD) sought to verify its incidence and the impacts of fatigue on quality life of patients with PD. Despite the importance of regular physical activity practice, there are only few studies that verified the influence of the levels of physical activity on fatigue in patients with PD. Objective: The aim of this study was to compare perception of fatigue between individuals with PD and neurologically healthy individuals (control group), considering the physical activity levels; and to verify the relation between physical activity levels and fatigue dimensions for individuals with PD and control group. Methods: Eighty individuals (40 patients with PD and 40 control individuals) participated in this study. Physical activity levels were evaluated through Modified Baecke Questionnaire for Older Adults. Multidimensional Fatigue Inventory (MFI) was used in order to evaluate fatigue dimensions (general, physical and mental fatigue, reduced motivation and activity). MANOVA two-way and Pearson linear correlation test were performed to analyze the data. Results: Patients with PD presented higher levels of fatigue, in all dimensions evaluated by MFI, comparing to control individuals. There was no association between physical activity levels and perception of fatigue for patients with PD and control individuals. Conclusion: Patients with PD showed increased perception of fatigue when compared to control individuals, due to PD characteristics. In addition, the perception of fatigue’s symptom was not influenced and had no relation by the level of physical activity.
