Abstract: The objective was to evaluate the practice of self-care of patients with mechanical heart valve prosthesis. A descriptive, cross-sectional study developed in two outpatient valvopathies of teaching hospitals of Fortaleza/CE, from October 2013 to January 2014. The sample consisted of 127 patients with mechanical heart valve prosthesis. It was held an interview using instrument based on the Theory of Orem’s Self-Care and Brazilian Guidelines for Valvular Heart Diseases. The data were presented in tables and charts. Results: Universal self-care practices of larger adhesion: body hygiene (97.6% washed-haired, daily-bath 92.1%); oral hygiene (brushing teeth before sleeping, 87.4%); fluid intake (drinking-water 95.2%); food intake (salt intake ≤ 2 g/day, 92.1%, fruit and vegetable consumption 79.5%); intestinal eliminations (without blood or mucus—96%, non-parasitic 94.4%); urinary elimination (no blood nor pus-96.8%, urination 4 to 6 times a day, 96%). As self-care developmental requirements predominated: never used illegal drugs, tobacco, alcohol, or stopped at the discovery of the disease (70%). As self-care health deviation requirements we have: making use of certain medication at the right dose (95.2%); attending medical appointments (cardiologist—92.1%; nursing—84.2%); INR control (identifies signs of bleeding— 85.8%). We conclude that patients did not perform all recommended self-care practices, being necessary to establish strategies to reduce the self-care deficit.

Abstract: The cerebral paralysis is a chronic condition, irreversible and incapacitating that limits the performance of the children in the conduct of activities that range from simple movement to interpersonal relationship. Profound changes occur within family like the deferment of dreams and future projects of the family. The objective was to evaluate the adjustment to the situation facing the mother of children with cerebral paralysis, based on the Model of Roy. For this study was designed a prospective, descriptive and qualitative held in the Nucleus and Treatment Early Stimulation of the Complex Hospital, Federal University of Ceará. This study involved thirteen mothers of children with cerebral paralysis. The data were collected by open questions based on the Roy Adaptation Model. The mothers′ speeches showed up themes: Auto concept mode and Performance mode. The most of mothers succeeded the experience the adaptation process, or had positive responses. The negative feelings do not always mean ineffective adapting, as part of the process of adapting to the new situation. We conclude that both children with cerebral paralysis and their mothers need support, since they absorb most of feelings related to the child.

Abstract: from the origins the man has looked and selected vegetables with nutritive value for larger productivity. the knowledge of dna structure allowed genetic engineering to develop and supplying tools for the accomplishment of specific alterations in the genome considerably. the products of these alterations are denominated transgenic or organisms genetically modified (ogm) and they present high application potential in several areas of the human activity as: agriculture, medicine, health, production and processing of foods, biochemical production and control of diseases. nowadays, transgenic plants, originating from technology of the dna recombinant, brought new varieties cultivated already in more than 100 million hectares in 23 countries, including brazil, where 8 varieties were already approved for the national technical commission of biosafety (ctnbio). that method of genetic improvement facilitated the introduction of desirable characteristics in plants, such as, resistance to biotic and non-biotic stress and optimization of the composition of some essential nutrients to the animal and human health. while these progresses of the biotechnology open new perspectives for the solution of problems in areas as the agriculture, the transgenic liberation for use in the nature brings concerns as for possible problems of ecological nature and for the human and animal health. these concerns brought the creation of government agencies to control the use of this technology and to regulate the safety of transgenic foods and yours derived. until the moment, the scientific studies show that the transgenic liberated commercially are so safe or more to the environment and the animal and human health that the conventional ones.

Abstract: four different detergents, asb 14, sb 3-10, chaps and triton x100, were utilized to determine the optimal detergent for the solubilization of membrane proteins from the phytopathogenic bacterium xylella fastidiosa. these proteins were differentially solubilized in distinct buffers containing the detergent and subjected to bidimensional electrophoresis within the non-linear ph range of 3-10. the detergents asb 14 and sb 3-10 were the most effective revealing 221 and 157 spots, respectively. chaps and triton x100 were less effective and revealed only 72 and 43 spots, respectively. maldi-tof tryptic peptide mass fingerprinting of 18 excised proteins from the asb 14 treatment revealed that 83% were membrane proteins and that the theoretical efficiency of solubilization for asb 14 was estimated to be 87%. this study demonstrates the effectiveness of the detergent asb 14 for the solubilization of membrane proteins from the bacterium x. fastidiosa.

Abstract: Depressive disorders (DDs) are very prevalent disorders particularly in women, a high-risk gender group. Determining the risk and protective factors associated with the development of DDs is fundamental to planning preventive and therapeutic strategies. In this study, we evaluated the correlations between healthy maternal attachment and the development of DDs in adulthood. Methods: We evaluated 52 women at 6 months to 1 year after premature childbirth at Maternidade Vila Nova Cachoeirinha. They were evaluated using the following instruments: Brazilian Criteria of Economic Classification,Parental Bonding Inventory (PBI),Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale (CES-D), and Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale (EPDS). Cut-off scores on the CES-D and EPDS were used to classifythe subjects as currently having a DD or having probable postpartum disorder (PPD) after childbirth. Multiple logistic regression was used to evaluate the risk factors associated with DDs. Results: We found that 49.1% of the sample had a current depressive episode, and 73.6% had probable PPD. Based on logistic regression, current depression (odds ratio = 1.092 [confidence interval: 1.005; 1.186]), and a PPD (odds ratio = 1.108 [confidence interval: 1.011; 1.21]) were negatively correlated with affective maternal relationships. Conclusions: Women who reported healthy attachment with their mothers did not develop DDs when faced with stressful situations such as premature childbirth.
