La construcción de legitimidad del Frente para la Victoria (1988-1991)
Trabajo y sociedad , 2011,
Abstract: the principal aim of this article is to rebuild the construction of legitimacy of the frente para la victoria (fpv) in santa cruz's political scene, from its born in 1988 to the rise to government in 1991. this paper recognized three types of construction of legitimacy to replace declining traditional parties's legitimacy: ucr, pj, pi and mid, between others. in this context, the fpv deployed legitimacy's strategies aimed at diverse groups and adding referents of different parties trajectories. in second place, the discourses and the conformation of the political elencos from the fvs tried to represent the typical fragmentation of a society formed for several migratory segments. finally, the fpv made a new a-political parties offer in keeping with the representations about the crisis of state during middle 80's, in which values as management, efficiency, order, work and governability played an important role. the fvs's legitimacy strategies show how the first stage of political power construction was a effect of its trajectory in the boundaries of weak social and politics groups.
Migración, retorno y lenguaje en la narrativa latinoamericana de hoy: El espíritu de mis padres sigue subiendo en la lluvia de Patricio Pron
Literatura y lingüística , 2012, DOI: 10.4067/S0716-58112012000200008
Abstract: this article examines how, in his last novel, el espíritu de mis padres sigue subiendo en la lluvia, the young argentinean writer, patricio pron, creatively presents, at least two processes: first, he shows the reader the complex process of migration/return and some related constructions of meaning. on the other hand (and at the same time), the narrative machine set up by pron relates/ articulates the migration/return theme to the unavoidable operations ocurring in literary language, which demanded until its limits of its expression, seeks different ways to express the vital experience of the narrator, his family and his country.
Consideraciones sobre las categorías de acceso a la atención en salud y procesos de estigmatización en personas externadas de instituciones de salud mental
Anuario de investigaciones , 2010,
Abstract: it is consider the accessibility of health care and stigmatizing processes as a dimension of a complex problem that deserves to be analyzed at different levels: one macro context, one of meta procesess and one of micro procesess. the health care practices should be read in the articulation of these two categories and in the interweaving of these three levels of analysis. stigmatization processes not necesary become barriers to access to the health system. stigma can also operate as a facilitator of access whith the inclusion of these subjects in targeted policies. we should inquire not only for access barriers that exist for these population, but still what are the characteristics of accessibility to health care in this specific population? many of the practices that take place with this population are held in a logic of victimization that continues aiming madness.
Who is violent?: factors associated with aggressive behaviors in Latin America and Spain
Revista Panamericana de Salud Pública , 1999, DOI: 10.1590/S1020-49891999000400007
Abstract: the main purpose of this paper was to evaluate the strength of the association between: 1) ag gres sive behaviors and 2) attitudes and self-efficacy for alternatives to violence, in different cities of the region of the americas and spain. results were based on a cross-sectional household survey of a sample of the population aged 18 to 70 years. the survey was conducted in eight metropolitan areas of latin america and spain: rio de janeiro, brazil; salvador, bahia, brazil; santiago, chile; cali, colombia; san josé, costa rica; san salvador, el salvador; caracas, venezuela; and madrid, spain. each sample of approximately 1 200 respondents per city was stratified by clusters and was proportional in terms of socioeconomic position and population density. in all cities and for all targets of aggression studied, people who reported using aggression were less likely to feel confident that they could solve conflicts without violence, and they were more likely to hold attitudes supporting violence. young persons were also more likely to commit aggression against all the targets. in addition, aggression toward nonfamily members was found most frequently among young men who reported binge drinking, who either carried a firearm or would have liked to carry one, or who perceived the police as inefficient. additional studies need to be done in each country to describe more specific attitudes as so ciated with aggression within each subculture. future prevention programs should focus on modifying attitudes that support violence, increasing self-efficacy in solving problems without using violence, supporting the development of a police system that people can trust, regulating firearms and access to alcohol, and raising people?s education levels.
La OPS enfoca el problema de la violencia contra la mujer
Revista Panamericana de Salud Pública , 1997, DOI: 10.1590/S1020-49891997001000023
Abstract: in latin american and the caribbean, a woman who is abused by her partner tends to deny the fact that she is the object of violence out of embarrassment, fear of revenge on the part of the assailant, or tacit consent on the part of the family and society at large. if she finally appeals to the justice or health care system, no one alleviates her circumstances, since both sectors operate independently and less efficiently than if intersectoral coordination existed. in june 1994 paho initiated a project in 16 countries involving the creation within the community of branches of the justice and health care systems, police, churches, non-government organizations, and community groups. these meet on a regular basis with the aim of launching a coordinated response to domestic violence. at the national level, the project fosters policies and legal norms that strengthen the institutional capacity to respond to the problem. links with the media are also being promoted in order to combat social beliefs and attitudes that lead to women being abused in their own homes.

Developing legal regulatory frameworks for modern biotechnology: The possibilities and limits in the case of GMOs
AA Pamela
African Journal of Biotechnology , 2006,
Abstract: This paper looks at attempts that have been made to develop legal regulatory frameworks for modern biotechnology. The discussion is limited to the regulation of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) technology by the two leading producers and exporters of GMOs in Africa: South Africa and Kenya. The international and regional regulatory regimes are analysed for comparative purposes since the two countries have partially based their regulatory frameworks on these regimes. The methodology used is analytical; the challenges that are posed by GMO technology are analysed from public policy and legal perspectives. The main argument that is advanced is that the challenges that are frequently viewed merely as problems ought to be considered as indicators of possibilities and limits in regulating this fluctuant field. Ideas on the factors to be considered in developing appropriate regulatory frameworks for biotechnology are put forth to serve as a wake up call to policy makers and legislators that have to deal with such issues. It is concluded that a holistic approach should be used in addressing the pressing issues that are raised by biotechnology generally and GMOs in particular.
Fesoterodine for the treatment of urinary incontinence and overactive bladder

Therapeutics and Clinical Risk Management , 2009, DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.2147/TCRM.S6483
Abstract: oterodine for the treatment of urinary incontinence and overactive bladder Review (3812) Total Article Views Authors: Pamela Ellsworth Published Date November 2009 Volume 2009:5 Pages 869 - 876 DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.2147/TCRM.S6483 Pamela Ellsworth The Alpert School of Medicine at Brown University Providence, RI, USA Abstract: Overactive bladder (OAB) is a highly prevalent condition, affecting males and females. The prevalence increases with age. Behavioral therapy and antimuscarinic therapy remain the first-line therapies for management of OAB. Despite improvements in symptoms, persistence with antimuscarinic therapy has remained low. Multiple factors including patient expectations, adverse effects and cost may affect persistence. Fesoterodine is one of the newest antimuscarinic agent approved for the management of OAB. It is unique in that it shares the same active metabolite as tolterodine, 5-hydoxymethyltolterodine (5-HMT); however, this conversion is established via ubiquitous esterases and not via the cytochrome P450 system, thus providing a faster and more efficient conversion to 5-HMT. Fesoterodine is available in 2 doses, 4 mg and 8 mg. Clinical trials have established a dose response relationship in efficacy parameters as well as improvements in quality of life. As with all antimuscarinics, dry mouth and constipation are the more common side effects. A combination of medical therapy and behavioral therapy improves the overall outcome in management of OAB. Dose flexibility may help improve efficacy outcomes and patient education on the management of common adverse effects may improve tolerability with these agents.
Minimizing the risk of hypoglycemia in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus

Diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome and Obesity: Targets and Therapy , 2010, DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.2147/DMSO.S10013
Abstract: imizing the risk of hypoglycemia in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus Short Report (5099) Total Article Views Authors: Pamela Kushner Published Date April 2010 Volume 2010:3 Pages 49 - 53 DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.2147/DMSO.S10013 Pamela Kushner University of California, Irvine College of Medicine, California, USA Abstract: Hypoglycemia is a major barrier to achieving glycemic goals in patients with diabetes. Both acute and chronically recurrent hypoglycemic events appear to have long-term consequences for patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Chronically recurrent hypoglycemia may lead to an impairment of the counterregulatory system, with the potential for the development of hypoglycemia unawareness syndrome, increased severe hypoglycemia-associated hospitalization, and increased mortality. Hypoglycemic events may also have negative implications in cardiovascular disease and/or dementia. Avoidance of hypoglycemia by treating with appropriate, individualized regimens for patients with T2DM should be a primary focus of physicians. Utilizing traditional agents (eg, metformin and thiazolidinediones) that do not promote hypoglycemia, in combination with newer agents such as dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitors and incretin mimetics, could offer a therapeutic advantage when trying to help patients reach their hemoglobin A1c goal without the added risk of hypoglycemia.
