Mensura??o da amplitude de movimento cervical em crian?as respiradoras orais
Neiva, PD;Kirkwood, RN;
Brazilian Journal of Physical Therapy , 2007, DOI: 10.1590/S1413-35552007000500005
Abstract: introduction: by clinical definition, mouth breathers use the mouth as their main air pathway during breathing. this results in modifications to tongue and head positioning and may have an influence on craniofacial mechanics during development. bringing the head forward is also common among mouth breathers and may lead to misalignments in adjacent segments of the human body. objective: to evaluate neck (cervical) range of motion (rom) among mouth-breathing children and compare this with a group of nose-breathing children. method: ten mouth-breathing children of both sexes aged 6.90 ± 1.37 years and ten nose-breathing children aged 7.70 ± 1.42 years participated in this study. the rom for neck flexion, extension and protrusion of the head were evaluated. student's t test for independent samples was used for the statistical analysis, considering p< 0.05 as the statistical significance level. results: the mouth-breathing children had a significantly smaller rom for neck extension (59.0o ± 10.79o), compared with the nose-breathing group (72.9o ± 8.82o ) (p= 0.001). the rom for flexion and protrusion was not statistically different between groups (59.0o ± 10.79o). conclusion: the mouth-breathing children presented smaller neck extension rom than the nose-breathing children did, but for protrusion and flexion rom there was no difference between the groups.
Sand fly evolution and its relationship to Leishmania transmission
Ready, PD;
Memórias do Instituto Oswaldo Cruz , 2000, DOI: 10.1590/S0074-02762000000400024
Abstract: the evolutionary relationships of sand flies and leishmania are discussed in this report, which draws distinctions between co-association, co-evolution and co-speciation (or co-cladogenesis). examples focus on phlebotomus vectors of le. infantum and le. major in the mediterranean subregion.

The transformative potential of the apocalypse of John
PD Decock
Acta Theologica , 2011,
Abstract: The transformative power of the Apocalypse of John is not situated in its prophetic predictions in the sense of information about the future but in its offer of divine wisdom by means of the symbolic scenes. The four types of symbols drawn by Gregory Baum from sociological traditions help to understand the transformative power of the symbols through which the possibility is offered to the hearers to see themselves and the world in new ways, to be able to discern between the ways of Babylon and the ways of Jerusalem. The transformation in view is not merely an individual and temporary one, but a cosmic, social and divine-human one in which perseverance in doing the works of Jesus to the end and holding on to the witness to/of Jesus (Rev 2:26; 12:17) play a crucial role.

Repetibilidade dos parametros espa?o-temporais da marcha: compara??o entre crian?as normais e com paralisia cerebral do tipo hemiplegia espástica
Dini, PD;David, AC;
Brazilian Journal of Physical Therapy , 2009, DOI: 10.1590/S1413-35552009005000031
Abstract: objective: to evaluate the repeatability of spatiotemporal gait parameters by means of a comparative study between normal children and children with cerebral palsy (cp). methods: the sample consisted of 17 children divided into two groups: a group of nine children with spastic hemiplegia cp and a group of eight normal children. the children were evaluated by the same researcher in two different sessions, with a one-week interval between the sessions. the children walked at self-selected velocities, and six attempts were performed at each session to represent the average. to record the spatiotemporal parameters, the peak motus system was used with two svhs video cameras with an acquisition rate of 60 hz. the intra-class correlation coefficient (icc) and bland-altman concordance limits were chosen for data analysis. results: the results demonstrated that the children with cp presented lower velocity and shorter cycles than the normal children in sessions 1 and 2. for all the spatiotemporal parameters, the two groups presented moderate to excellent icc values, i.e. greater than 0.70. conclusion: it can be concluded that the two groups presented good levels of repeatability for all the parameters analyzed when six attempts were used to represent the average.
Knowledge of HIV and AIDS in women in sub-Saharan Africa
AD Burgoyne, PD Drummond
African Journal of Reproductive Health , 2008,
Abstract: Although most African people have heard of HIV and AIDS, there is still widespread misunderstanding about how HIV is spread, the consequences of infection, and how to protect against infection. The most vulnerable groups are poorly educated women, those from rural backgrounds, and women who are economically dependent on men. Lower levels of education, taboos associated with the discussion of sexuality and sexual health, the submissive role of women in a relationship, and male control of decision-making regarding sexual relations might explain why African women are less knowledgeable about HIV/AIDS than men. Although most African men and women are aware of the protective benefits of condoms, negative attitudes towards the acceptability and safety of condom use are widespread. More sexual health campaigns tailored to women, especially those with low education levels and those from rural areas, are needed to reduce the spread of HIV in Africa.
The potential for reductive dehalogenation of chlorinated phenol in a sulphidogenic environment inin situ enhanced biodegradation
GA Ehlers, PD Rose
Water SA , 2006,
Abstract: An investigation of the reductive dechlorination of 2, 4, 6-trichlorophenol (2, 4, 6-TCP) under sulphate-reducing conditions was made. Sulphate-reducing and dechloro-respiring activities were studied in a mixed microbial population operated in batch-fed as well as continuous pine chip-packed fluidised bed reactors. Results showed that reductive dechlorination of 2, 4, 6-TCP by the dechloro-respiring bacteria may be indirectly stimulated by the fermentative activity of the sulphate-reducing population affected by sulphate and lactate concentrations. Sulphate was administered in excess (900 mg· -1) and limiting (110 mg· -1) concentrations. At these concentrations, SO42- was available in quantities sufficient and lower than that required to bring about consumption of lactate. Transformation to 2,4-dichlorophenol (2,4-DCP), 4-chlorophenol (4-CP) and phenol was enhanced in sulphate-limiting conditions with average 47.7% TCP reduction compared to 11.6% in sulphate-enriched administered reactors. The potential application requirements for dechlorination under sulphate-reducing conditions for in situ biodegradation are considered. The input electron donor: SO42- ratio is manipulated to effect accelerated dechlorination rates for chlorinated organic compound-contaminated soil/groundwater bioremediation applications where oxygen is frequently limited.
