Brazilian Dental Journal , 2007, DOI: 10.1590/S0103-64402007000100012
Abstract: this study evaluated the effect of blue light emitting diode (led) and quartz tungsten halogen (qth) on the degree of conversion (dc) of an etch-and-rinse single bond adhesive system (sb) and a mixture composed of primer solution and resin bond from clearfil se bond self-etching adhesive system (cb) using fourier transform infrared analysis (ftir). adhesives were applied to potassium bromide pellet surfaces and ftir analyses were performed before and after photo-activation for 10 s with either led (freelight 1 - 400 mw/cm2) or qth (xl 3000 - 630 mw/cm2) light-curing units (n=8). additional ftir spectra were obtained from photo-activated samples stored in distilled water for 1 week. the dc was calculated by comparing the spectra obtained from adhesive resins before and after photo-activation. the results were analyzed by two-way split-plot anova and tukey's test (p<0.05). both adhesive systems exhibited low dc (%) immediately after photo-activation (sb/qth: 18.7 ± 3.9; sb/led: 13.5 ± 3.3; cf/qth: 13.6 ± 1.9; cf/led: 6.1 ± 1.0). the dc of samples light-cured with led was lower than dc of those light-cured with qth, immediately after light curing and after 1 week (sb/qth: 51.3 ± 6.6; sb/led: 50.3 ± 4.8; cf/qth: 56.5 ± 2.9; cf/led: 49.2 ± 4.9). the led curing unit used to photo-activate the adhesive resins promoted lower dc than the qth curing unit both immediately after light curing and 1 week after storage in water.

Abstract: this paper aimed to analyze the comparative performance from the minas gerais "cerrado" coffee producers and the south-western conventional coffee producers, according to the returns and the risk level. differentiation and costs were emphasized because they were the strategic options adopted by the grower in these two regions the margins and potential loss of these two producer groups were measured, in a way that a relation between risks and returns could be presented. the returns were estimated by an index that relates costs and prices - operational margin -, and risk analysis was conducted based on value at risk estimates. the results indicated that, besides obtaining better returns, the minas gerais "cerrado" producers had smaller loss potential than those from the south-west. the favorable results obtained by the minas gerais "cerrado" coffee producers were related to the differences in productive costs and coffee quality. improved product quality and productive management were the most relevant aspects found to enhance the performance of the south-western coffee producer. as for the "cerrado" coffee production, the importance of maintaining the efforts related to differentiation and to the productivity was pointed out.

To evaluate the inclusion of common beans in the diet of cattle in feedlot on characteristics of productive performance, nutrient digestibility and ruminal fermentation parameters, 15 bulls crossed were used in a completely randomized design. The animals were confined for 64 days, and 21 days of adaptation. We evaluated the inclusion common beans at levels of 0%, 13% and 26%. All diets were isocaloric and isonitrogenous with a 45:55 forage: concentrate ratio. The addition of beans in the diet did not affect animal performance, dry matter intake and feed efficiency. Inclusion bean changed the nutrient digestibility of DM, CP, EE, TC and OM, where the best digestibility was observed with the inclusion 13% and the lowest concentration of ruminal NH3-N. The general behavior of ruminal pH in relation to levels of inclusion of beans was 6.2. The inclusion of up to 13% of beans in the diet of feedlot cattle did not alter the apparent digestibility, ruminal and animal performance.

Abstract: Background The modulation of inflammatory processes is a necessary step, mostly orchestrated by regulatory T (Treg) cells and suppressive Dendritic Cells (DCs), to prevent the development of deleterious responses and autoimmune diseases. Therapies that focused on adoptive transfer of Treg cells or their expansion in vivo achieved great success in controlling inflammation in several experimental models. Chloroquine (CQ), an anti-malarial drug, was shown to reduce inflammation, although the mechanisms are still obscure. In this context, we aimed to access whether chloroquine treatment alters the frequency of Treg cells and DCs in normal mice. In addition, the effects of the prophylactic and therapeutic treatment with CQ on Experimental Autoimmune Encephalomyelitis (EAE), an experimental model for human Multiple Sclerosis, was investigated as well. Methodology/Principal Findings EAE was induced in C57BL/6 mice by immunization with myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein (MOG35–55) peptide. C57BL/6 mice were intraperitoneally treated with chloroquine. Results show that the CQ treatment provoked an increase in Treg cells frequency as well as a decrease in DCs. We next evaluated whether prophylactic CQ administration is capable of reducing the clinical and histopathological signs of EAE. Our results demonstrated that CQ-treated mice developed mild EAE compared to controls that was associated with lower infiltration of inflammatory cells in the central nervous system CNS) and increased frequency of Treg cells. Also, proliferation of MOG35–55-reactive T cells was significantly inhibited by chloroquine treatment. Similar results were observed when chloroquine was administrated after disease onset. Conclusion We show for the first time that CQ treatment promotes the expansion of Treg cells, corroborating previous reports indicating that chloroquine has immunomodulatory properties. Our results also show that CQ treatment suppress the inflammation in the CNS of EAE-inflicted mice, both in prophylactic and therapeutic approaches. We hypothesized that the increased number of regulatory T cells induced by the CQ treatment is involved in the reduction of the clinical signs of EAE.
