Martha Ornelas, Verónica Benavides, Juan F. Aguirre, Gabriel Gastélum, Judith M. Rodríguez-Villalobos
Health (Health) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/health.2014.611138
Abstract: A Physical Activation Program was designed and implemented with a particular emphasis in recovering of motor independence, and in an indirect manner; the increase of activities was carried out in a social context in such a way that it allowed isolated elderly to develop their ability to perform daily activities diminishing the burden on their caregivers. 30 people were randomly selected: 15 subjects in the experimental group and 15 in the control group; 7 women and 8 men each group. Subjects aged between 60 - 84 years with a mean age of 78 years and a standard deviation of 6.5 were applied in a three-month Physical Activation Program with a 45-min daily sessions. Results obtained showed that physical activity in elderly, systematically improved their amplitude and joint mobility which impact directly and indirectly their quality of life, reducing their risk of falling.

International Journal of Clinical Medicine (IJCM) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ijcm.2015.67065
Abstract: The use of PRP involves a complex network of molecular events which accelerate tissue regenera-tion due to its richness in growth factors plus a variety of biologic mediators. Several communica-tions tell us about its usefulness on the dental implantology field, plastic surgery, orthopedics and peripheral nerve regeneration after trauma. We have presented our successful experience of its use in pneumology when treating severe hemoptysis, respiratory fistulae, spontaneous pneumothorax and one tracheal rupture. In this article we present two cases of post intubation tracheal rupture successfully treated with the local instillation of PRP on one of them and with the injection of PRP along the lips of the tracheal wound on the other. Tracheal rupture is a rare but life threatening complication of emergency intubation requiring an effective response in order to avoid the risk of patient death due to secondary mediastinitis and sepsis. Up to now there is no general consensus in the treatment of this condition and alternatives in use are not universally accepted. The use of local autologous PRP in our experience has demonstrated a favorable performance in such cases, turning it in a highly promising tool for the treatment of conditions such as this, in which a rapidly effective and minimally invasive handling is required.
Presence of enterotoxigenic Staphylococcus aureus in bulk tank milk from Argentine dairy farms
Neder,Verónica E.; Canavesio,Vilma R.; Calvinho,Luis F.;
Revista argentina de microbiolog?-a , 2011,
Abstract: staphylococcus aureus is the most prevalent bovine mastitis pathogen in argentina. the ability of this organism to produce enterotoxins is linked to staphylococcal food poisoning. staphylococcal enterotoxins are low molecular weight proteins, highly resistant to heat and proteolytic enzyme activity. the aim of this study was to determine the ability to produce enterotoxins and types of enterotoxins a through e produced among 94 s. aureus isolated from bulk tank milk in argentina by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. eleven isolates (11.7 %) produced enterotoxins. seven of them (7.4 %) produced enterotoxin c, two (2.1 %) enterotoxin d, one (1.1 %) enterotoxin b and one (1.1 %) enterotoxins c-d-e. none of the isolates produced enterotoxins a or e alone. since presence of staphylococcal enterotoxins constitute a potential risk to public health, these findings underscore the need to control s. aureus bovine mastitis and to limit bacterial multiplication in bulk tank milk.
Equity of access to health care for older adults in four major Latin American cities
Wallace,Steven P.; Gutiérrez,Verónica F.;
Revista Panamericana de Salud Pública , 2005, DOI: 10.1590/S1020-49892005000500012
Abstract: objectives: to identify if older adults have equitable access to health services in four major latin american cities and to determine if the inequities that are found follow the patterns of economic inequality in each of the four nations studied. methods: data from persons age 60 and over in the cities of s?o paulo, brazil (n = 2 143); santiago, chile (n = 1 301); mexico city, mexico (n = 1 247); and montevideo, uruguay (n = 1 450) were collected through a collaboration led by the pan american health organization. for our study, three process indicators of access (availability, accessibility, and acceptability) and one indicator of actual health services use (visit to a medical doctor in the past 12 months) were analyzed by wealth quintiles, health insurance type, education, health status, and demographic characteristics. results: each of the four cities had a different level of access to care, and those levels of access were only weakly related to per capita national wealth. given the relatively high level of wealth inequality in brazil and the lower level in uruguay, older persons in s?o paulo had better-than-expected equity in access to care, while older persons in montevideo had less equity than expected. inequity in mexico city was driven primarily by low levels of health insurance coverage. in santiago, inequity followed socioeconomic status more than it did health insurance. conclusions: in the four cities studied, health insurance and the operation of health systems mediate the link between economic inequality and inequitable access to health care. therefore, special attention needs to be paid to equity of access in health services, independent of differences in economic inequality and national wealth.

Abstract: Staphylococcus aureus is the most prevalent bovine mastitis pathogen in Argentina. The ability of this organism to produce enterotoxins is linked to staphylococcal food poisoning. Staphylococcal enterotoxins are low molecular weight proteins, highly resistant to heat and proteolytic enzyme activity. The aim of this study was to determine the ability to produce enterotoxins and types of enterotoxins A through E produced among 94 S. aureus isolated from bulk tank milk in Argentina by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Eleven isolates (11.7 %) produced enterotoxins. Seven of them (7.4 %) produced enterotoxin C, two (2.1 %) enterotoxin D, one (1.1 %) enterotoxin B and one (1.1 %) enterotoxins C-D-E. None of the isolates produced enterotoxins A or E alone. Since presence of staphylococcal enterotoxins constitute a potential risk to public health, these findings underscore the need to control S. aureus bovine mastitis and to limit bacterial multiplication in bulk tank milk. Staphylococcus aureus es el patógeno causante de mastitis más prevalente en Argentina. Las enterotoxinas producidas por este organismo constituyen una de las causas más importantes de intoxicación alimentaria en seres humanos. Las enterotoxinas estafilocócicas son proteínas de bajo peso molecular, termoestables y resistentes a enzimas proteolíticas. El objetivo del presente trabajo fue determinar por enzimoinmunoensayo la presencia de enterotoxinas A-E y establecer su tipo en 94 aislamientos de Staphylococcus aureus obtenidos de leche de tanque de frío de tambos de Argentina. Se identificaron 11 % aislamientos enterotoxigénicos (11,7 %); siete (7,4 %) produjeron enterotoxina C, dos produjeron enterotoxina D (2,1 %), uno produjo enterotoxina B (1,1 %) y uno produjo enterotoxinas C-D-E (1,1 %). No se detectaron aislamientos que produjeran enterotoxinas A o E solamente. Estos hallazgos indican la necesidad de implementar un eficaz control de la mastitis bovina para disminuir la presencia de S. aureus en leche de tanque y evitar riesgos potenciales para la salud pública.
