Abstract: objective: quality of labor care has been recognized as a major factor for prevention of obstetric complications which can lead to maternal, perinatal and neonatal morbidity and mortality. the objective of the study was to assess quality of labor care by gestational risk and type of health provider. methods: observational, cross-sectional study of labor care provided to 574 pregnant women. stratified sampling in 20 unified health system maternity hospitals in rio de janeiro, brazil, was carried out between 1999 and 2001. quality of labor care was assessed by gestational risk and type of health provider. statistical analyses consisted of variance analysis and the analysis of difference between proportions. results: of all women studied, 29.6% were classified at obstetric risk. although hypertension is the main cause of maternal death in brazil, 71.6% did not have their prelabor blood pressure measured. five measures were taken on average per parturient and the lowest rate was found in privately insured hospitals (average of 2.9). as to humanized health care, only 21.4% of the parturients had an accompanying person on their side during labor, 75.7% were submitted to intravenous hydration and 24.3% to amniotomy. the single care-related factor that varied by obstetric risk was frequency of blood pressure measures: high-risk parturients had their blood pressure measured twice as much as those low-risk women (mean 0.36 vs. 0.18 measures/h, p=0.006). conclusions: in general, low-risk parturients were submitted to unnecessary interventions while high-risk women did not receive adequate care. as a result, there are poor perinatal outcomes, high cesarean rates and high maternal mortality rates, which do not reflect health care investments and technology available.

Abstract: Background: Cystinosis is a multisystemic autosomal recessive deficiency of the lysosomal membrane transporter protein (cystinosin) caused by mutations in CTNS gene. Objective: This study summarizes the Portuguese experience in the diagnosis and management of patients with this rare disease over the past few years and reports recurrent mutations in the CTNS gene. Methods: Unrelated patients from different pediatric and adult hospitals all over Portugal with non-nephrotic proteinuria, hypercalciuria, hypokalemia impaired proximal reabsorption of amino acids, glycosuria and hypophosphatemia, suggestive of a Fanconi syndrome and ocular problems, were studied. Intra-leukocyte cystine levels were determined and molecular analysis was performed, to determine the presence or absence of the 57-kb deletion in CTNS, followed by direct sequencing of the coding exons of CTNS. Results: From 1998 to 2017, twenty-one cystinotic patients were biochemically diagnosed. From the remaining

Abstract: coffee is one of the most valuable agricultural commodities and ranks second on international trade exchanges. the genus coffea belongs to the rubiaceae family which includes other important plants. the genus contains about 100 species but commercial production is based only on two species, coffea arabica and coffea canephora that represent about 70 % and 30 % of the total coffee market, respectively. the brazilian coffee genome project was designed with the objective of making modern genomics resources available to the coffee scientific community, working on different aspects of the coffee production chain. we have single-pass sequenced a total of 214,964 randomly picked clones from 37 cdna libraries of c. arabica, c. canephora and c. racemosa, representing specific stages of cells and plant development that after trimming resulted in 130,792, 12,381 and 10,566 sequences for each species, respectively. the ests clustered into 17,982 clusters and 32,155 singletons. blast analysis of these sequences revealed that 22 % had no significant matches to sequences in the national center for biotechnology information database (of known or unknown function). the generated coffee est database resulted in the identification of close to 33,000 different unigenes. annotated sequencing results have been stored in an online database at http://www.lge.ibi.unicamp.br/cafe. resources developed in this project provide genetic and genomic tools that may hold the key to the sustainability, competitiveness and future viability of the coffee industry in local and international markets.

Malaria Journal , 2007, DOI: 10.1186/1475-2875-6-33
Abstract: Sixty-five patients and 1,777 residents were surveyed between April 2001 and March 2004. Laboratory methods included thin and thick smears, multiplex-PCR, immunofluorescent assay (IFA) against P. vivax and Plasmodium malariae crude blood-stage antigens and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for antibodies against the P. vivax-complex (P. vivax and variants) and P. malariae/Plasmodium brasilianum circumsporozoite-protein (CSP) antigens.Average patient age was 35.1 years. Most (78.5%) were males; 64.6% lived in rural areas; 35.4% were farmers; and 12.3% students. There was no relevant history of travel. Ninety-five per cent of the patients were experiencing their first episode of malaria. Laboratory data from 51 patients were consistent with P. vivax infection, which was determined by thin smear. Of these samples, 48 were assayed by multiplex-PCR. Forty-five were positive for P. vivax, confirming the parasitological results, while P. malariae was detected in one sample and two gave negative results. Fifty percent of the 50 patients tested had IgG antibodies against the P. vivax-complex or P. malariae CSP as determined by ELISA. The percentages of residents with IgM and IgG antibodies detected by IFA for P. malariae, P. vivax and Plasmodium falciparum who did not complain of malaria symptoms at the time blood was collected were 30.1% and 56.5%, 6.2% and 37.7%, and 13.5% and 13%, respectively. The same sera that reacted to P. vivax also reacted to P. malariae. The following numbers of samples were positive in multiplex-PCR: 23 for P. vivax; 15 for P. malariae; 9 for P. falciparum and only one for P. falciparum and P. malariae. All thin and thick smears were negative. ELISA against CSP antigens was positive in 25.4%, 6.3%, 10.7% and 15.1% of the samples tested for "classical" P. vivax (VK210), VK247, P. vivax-like and P. malariae, respectively. Anopheline captures in the transmission area revealed only zoophilic and exophilic species.The low incidence of malaria c

Abstract: The employment of sustainable chemicals, such as citric acid, represents a possibility for the development of textile dyeing processes. This study aimed to analyze the possibility of replacement of acetic acid (commonly used in textile processing) by citric acid in polyester and polyamide 6 dyeing processes. The utilization of citric acid as leveling agent for disperse dyestuffs was also investigated. Dyeing processes in turquoise color for these fabrics were performed employing citric and acetic acid. Color differences between dyeing processes and color fastness to water were evaluated. All the color dyeing differences were not significant and there was no transference in color fastness tests (grade 5). Otherwise, the differences among polyamide dyeing processes could be related to the efficiency of citric acid solution as sequestering agent. Notwithstanding citric acid to be more expensive than acetic acid and the need of previous dissolution by stirring, it could be advantageous for some formulations.

Abstract: this paper presents a contribution on the climate modelling studies with emphasis on seasonal rainfall variability in eastern amazonia, during the austral summer and autumn seasons (djf and mam). based on regcm3 regional climate simulations for a 26 years period (1982/83 to 2007/08) using high resolution domain scale (30 km) and two different convection schemes (grell and mit), it was investigated the model performance to simulate the regional pluviometric distribution in eastern amazon, with reference to a new observational data base containing regional aspects extracted from a dense rain gauge station network. the quantitative analysis showed that regcm3 presents systematic errors, especially those related to the dry bias in the amapá and north/northeast of pará using both schemes grell and mit, which indicate that the model does not reproduce itcz characteristics over equatorial atlantic. the simulations using mit also indicated wet bias in the southwest/south/southeast of pará and north of tocantins. moreover, through composites technique, it was also investigated regcm3 response to reproduce the anomalous spatial rainfall patterns in association with enso episodes and interhemispheric ssta gradient phases across the intertropical atlantic. the results showed that the model represented realistically well the spatial pattern related to the rainfall anomalies above (below) than normal in most of eastern amazonia, during the known favourable scenarios, i.e., la ni?a and south atlantic ssta gradient (unfavourable, i.e., el ni?o and north atlantic ssta gradient).
