Contribution of the Incorporation of Poultry Litter and Limestone for the Fertility of Sandy Soil in the Brazilian Amazon  [PDF]
Juliana Guimar?es Gerola, Juan Ricardo Rocha, Stella Cristiani Gon?alves Matoso, Leandro Dias da Silva
Natural Resources (NR) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/nr.2014.515082
Abstract: Sandy soils have limitations for growing plants. In general, they have low fertility, high toxic aluminum content and low organic matter. The organic matter is responsible for most of the cation exchange capacity of these soils. Added to this, the low clay content and the structure of these soils with large volumes of macropores, determine their low water retention. An alternative is the incorporation of organic waste combined with the practice of liming. Thus, the aim of this study was to evaluate the contribution of the incorporation of poultry litter and limestone in the fertility of sandy soils in the Brazilian Amazon. The experiment was conducted in Colorado do Oeste, RO, on a Quartzipsamment in a completely randomized block design in a 4 × 4 × 2 factorial scheme, corresponding to four doses of poultry litter (0, 5, 10 and 15 mg·ha-1), its incorporation for four times (0, 75, 110 and 145 days) in the presence and absence of 2 mg·ha-1 of limestone, with six replications. The incorporation of 15 mg·ha-1 of poultry litter combined with 2 mg·ha-1 of limestone for 75 days after the merger raises several components of Quartzipsamment fertility, mainly being the availability of phosphorus.

Abstract: Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) and other auto-inflammatory disorders are conditions caused by chronic and persistent intestinal inflammation, which is mainly represented by Ulcerative Colitis (UC) or Crohn’s Disease (CD), both of which typically arise as chronic inflammation of the gastrointestinal mucosa. Doctor’s main focus for treating IBD is the decrease on inflammation processes when the disease is active and promotes the maintenance of inflammation at normal levels. However, to deal with these two parameters is not easy, because the drugs usually used are related to several side effects and they are not totally effective to reduce inflammation and to keep the remission. Authors agree that the therapy approach should include drugs, dietary intervention and use of alternative substances as probiotics. The standard treatment approach for patients with CD and UC is traditionally done with the use of anti-inflammatory agents, like corticosteroids, mesalamine, immunomodulators such as azathioprine and methotrexate, and biologic agents such as infliximab and others. Probiotics are known as viable micro-organisms (or live microorganisms or live microbial dietary supplements) that may promote beneficial physiologic or therapeutic properties when used correctly. The interest in the role of these substances in improving human health is the reason of several researches. They may be used to help the immune system, to control gastro-intestinal infections and to prevent several diseases. Prebiotics, symbiotics, and probiotics may be helpful as adjuvants in the treatment of IBD. Probiotics are normally well-tolerated and are associated with few side effects which are undoubtedly important in the treatment of any disease.

Silva, Ricardo Gon?alves da;Silva, Nelson Gon?alves da;Lucchesi, Fabiano;Burdmann, Emmanuel A;
Jornal Brasileiro de Nefrologia , 2010, DOI: 10.1590/S0101-28002010000300012
Abstract: introduction: the incidence of contrast-induced nephropathy has increased simultaneously with the increase in contrast medium use in diagnostic and interventional procedures. the incidence of contrast-induced nephropathy in the general population is low, but increases exponentially in patients with risk factors, such as diabetes and chronic kidney disease. several strategies have been used in order to prevent contrast-induced nephropathy. the most efficient strategies are saline hydration (0.9% or 0.45%), use of low-or iso-osmolality contrast medium, and sodium bicarbonate infusion. objective: the aim of this study was to review the pertinent literature and to assess the efficacy of hydration with 1.3% sodium bicarbonate compared with hydration with 0.9% saline solution in preventing contrastinduced nephropathy in high-risk patients. material and methods: a systematic search of the literature was conducted in pubmed by using the following keywords: bicarbonate, nephropathy, contrast medium, and acute kidney failure. in addition, 27 patients with diabetes and/or chronic kidney disease, diagnosed with some kind of cancer were randomized for study. results: none of the patients developed contrast-induced nephropathy characterized as a 0.5 mg/ dl-increase and/or a relative 25%-increase in baseline creatinine. conclusions: the literature review strongly suggested that sodium bicarbonate is effective in preventing contrast-induced nephropathy. regarding the randomized study, saline solution and bicarbonate solution had similar efficacy in preventing contrast-induced nephropathy. however, the small number of patients does not allow definite conclusions.

Silva, Paulo Ricardo Santos da;Amaral, Fernando Gon?alves;
Gest?o & Produ??o , 2011, DOI: 10.1590/S0104-530X2011000100004
Abstract: production systems improvements result from the application of specific methods and techniques. however, for a long time, these tools focused only on quality and productivity goals. due to the growing importance of environmental issues for society, some models for assessing environmental impacts have been developed. nevertheless, their structure is very complex and inadequate for micro and small enterprises. therefore, the objective of this work is to present the model for environmental assessment in industrial production systems, a tool created to analyze micro and small enterprises from the environmental perspective. the model can be implemented within a short time period, at low cost and scientific integrity. the tool was applied to identify the environmental impacts of a metal-mechanic sector company that manufactures metallic structures. as a result, it can be said that the gas emissions from surface coating operations such as polishing and painting were the major environmental problems associated to the production process.
