Sexual health is considered of fundamental importance in people’s lives. Since it is determined by physiological, psychological and social factors, the investigations of these aspects are relevant to full comprehension of this phenomenon. Endocrinological conditions, as overweighed and normal body mass indexes were addressed as the main factors in women’ sexual function, which can affect level of sexual hormones; and as a consequence, lead to sexual dysfunction. Body mass index of 370 women were analyzed to indentify the implications in their sexual life, using the Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI) inventory, with six domains that assess different aspects of women’ sexual activity and satisfaction. The main results show no statistical differences between normal and overweighed body mass index. However, there were significant differences between different phases of life as Reproductive, Perimenopause, and Postmenopause women, in which the youngsters showed better FSFI scores, better sexual function, than the older ones. Also, significant differences were found when time of marriage was taken into account, the longer the relationship, the worse the sexual function. We concluded that not only endocrinological variables may explain the sexual function in women, but also psychosocial variables as age, and time and quality of their relationships.

Abstract: Highly weathered soils in areas from Brazil are acidic soils, typically characterized by poor fertility, particularly with low soil phosphorus level. This laboratory experiment was carried out to evaluate the influences of biochar, made from the poultry litter and MB-4, rock dust from grinding of silicate rocks in increasing the available soil phosphorus on Ultisol, Oxisol and Entisol. Thus, one experiment involving soils incubation was conducted in laboratory, during 100 days. The treatments consisted of rock powder, MB-4 and poultry litter, biochar, evaluated by the base saturation method, with correction levels from 40% to 80% for Ultisol and Entisol and from 20% to 80% for Oxisol and three replicates. After the incubation period, the soil samples were analyzed in relation to available phosphorus in the soil. The results of this study confirmed that the biochar prepared from the poultry litter through slow pyrolysis was a potential source of phosphorus, particularly to weathered soils. Biochar released phosphorus into the soils. The biochar could be used in the improvement of available phosphorus for the three soils analyzed. During the incubation period, 100 days, the application of increasing doses of MB-4 in soils there was no improvement in the available soil phosphorus. MB-4 was not a source of phosphorus to the soil in a short term.

Abstract: the teat skin is one of the main sources of microbial contamination of raw milk as well as a source of mastitis infection. this study assessed the microbial load of the teat skin following the application of the different practices for preparing the udder, including the use of calf suckling to stimulate the letdown of milk. thirty-six cows milked by machine were included in one experiment. two teats of each cow were sampled for bacteriology before and after using one of three methods of udder preparation, as follows: rinsing with water and drying with single paper towels (a); method a plus pre-dipping with an iodine teat dip (4,000ppm) and drying with single paper towels (b); wiping teats using a commercial wet non-woven wipe pre-soaked with a solution containing chlorexidine (c). the second experiment included 16 cows milked by hand. the calf of each cow was allowed to suck the four teats for a few seconds, and then two teats per cow were sampled for bacteriology. samples were collected before, after calf sucking and following teat pre-milking treatment (as for group c, above). statistical analysis was conducted on transformed (log10) data with ttbc=log10(tbc+0.5) using a kruskal-wallis test. each treatment was analysed considering the difference in ttbc after the use of either method of preparation of the udder or calf sucking. for groups a, b and c (first experiment), ttbc values were reduced 1.8, 2.2 and 2.4, respectively. in the second experiment, ttbc increased significantly (p<0,05) after calf sucking (from 3.2 to 4.3). after disinfection the ttbc was significantly reduced to 2.0. these results show that: (a) teat rinsing with water and wiping dry reduces the number of microorganisms on the teat skin, but the reduction is significantly higher when teats are disinfected; (b) calf sucking before milking increases significantly the number of microorganisms on teat skin; (c) the number of microorganisms on teat skin can be reduced more than 10 times after calf su

Abstract: O "California Mastitis Test" (CMT) estima o conteúdo de células somáticas no leite e é interpretado subjetivamente, estabelecendo-se escores que, na maioria dos casos, variam de 1 a 5. O escore 1 indica uma rea o completamente negativa e os de 2-5 indicam graus crescentes de resposta inflamatória do úbere, sendo normalmente considerados como indicativos de mastite subclínica. Dependendo da interpreta o dos escores, o CMT pode produzir resultados falso-positivos ou falso-negativos. Esse trabalho teve o objetivo de avaliar a sensibilidade e a especificidade do CMT em rela o à contagem de células somáticas (CCS). Foram utilizadas 3.012 amostras de leite provenientes de 760 vacas Holandesas ou mesti as Holandês-Zebu, pertencentes a 15 rebanhos. Todas as amostras foram submetidas ao CMT e processadas para CCS em equipamento Fossomatic 90. Os valores médios de CCS (x 1.000 células/ml) obtidos para os escores de CMT foram 1 (79,9), 2 (333,5), 3 (670,3), 4 (1.354,0) e 5 (4.455,6). Três op es de interpreta o (doente/n o-doente) para o CMT foram testadas, em rela o aos valores de CCS, iniciando com 100.000 células/ml: (a) 1 versus 2, 3, 4, e 5; (b) 1 e 2 versus 3, 4 e 5; (c) 1, 2, 3 versus 4 e 5. As sensibilidades do CMT em identificar corretamente quartos mamários acima de 200.000 células/ml foram 79%, 61% e 34%, para as op es a, b e c, respectivamente. Para identificar corretamente contagens acima de 500.000 células/ml, as sensibilidades do CMT, para as op es a, b e c, foram, respectivamente: 93%, 82% e 54%. A sensibilidade do CMT em identificar quartos mamários com mastite subclínica foi adequada (acima de 80%) quando a interpreta o do teste foi mais rigorosa (op es a e b). A interpreta o da rea o 3 como negativa (op o c) só alcan ou sensibilidade de 80% para contagens entre 1.200.000 e 1.400.000 células/ml. As especificidades do CMT, para CCS de 200.000 e 500.000 foram, respectivamente, 90% e 80% (op o a), 97% e 90% (op o b) e 99% e 97% (op o c).

Abstract: this study was conducted to establish the relationship between somatic cell count (scc) and bacterial shedding from mammary quarters according to mastitis pathogens. milk samples from 638 mammary quarters were examined for mastitis pathogens, scc and total bacterial count (tbc). the raw data of scc and tbc were used to perform descriptive statistics. the significance of the arithmetic mean differences between scc and tbc according to bacteriological examination results was determined by a two-tailed unpaired t-test. pearson and spearman′s correlations were done with logarithmic data and linear regression analyses. the geometric means of the bacteriological examination results were (cells ml-1; cfu ml-1): no growth (52,000; 12,000), coagulase-negative staphylococci (85,000; 17,000), staphylococcus aureus (587,000; 77,000); other streptococci (432,000; 108,000) and streptococcus agalactiae (1,572,000; 333,000). the pearson and spearman's correlations between scc and tbc were higher than 0.60 for all mastitis pathogens. the regression analyses slopes showed different increase in tbc with the same increase in scc according to mastitis pathogens. the slope for s. agalactiae (0.542) was higher than that for other mastitis pathogens. the results suggest that the intensity of inflammatory process was associated with number of mastitis pathogens shedding from the mammary gland.
