Abstract: this study examined differences in the use of medications in two birth cohorts (born from 1916 to 1926 and from 1927 to 1937) among older elderly in the population-based cohort study in bambuí, minas gerais state, brazil. the study used data on participants who were 71-81 years of age in the baseline survey in 1997 (n = 492) and in the 11th wave, in 2008 (n = 620). the number of medications currently consumed (mean = 4.6 and 3.4, respectively) and prevalence of polypharmacy (46.6% and 29.1%, respectively) were higher in the more recent cohort as compared to the earlier one. these differences were independent of gender, age, schooling, number of medical visits in the previous 12 months, and number of chronic conditions. the more recent cohort showed significant differences in the use of psychoactive drugs, lipid modifying agents, drugs for diabetes, and antithrombotic agents, as well as changes in drugs used for arterial hypertension. in general, these changes are consistent with those observed in elderly populations in high-income countries.

Abstract: objective: to understand the meanings attributed to self-assessment of health by the elderly. methods: qualitative study performed with 17 elderly individuals (> 70 years of age) of both sexes, living in the city of bambuí, southeastern brazil, in 2008. an anthropological approach based on the model of signs, meanings and actions, which associates individual actions, cultural codes and the macro-social context, was used. semi-structured interviews were conducted, focusing on self-assessment of health, description of health as "good" and "poor" and the criteria used by the elderly to rate their own health. analysis of results: the idea organizing reports associates self-assessment of health by the elderly with the "participating in life" and "being anchored in life" logics. the first logic has autonomy as its basic line of thinking, including the following categories: remaining active within advanced instrumental and functional abilities, being in charge of one's life (as opposed to being dependent on others), being able to solve problems and acting at will. the second logic unites the following categories: being able to interact, being engaged in meaningful relationships and being able to rely on family members, friends and neighbors. conclusions: health is understood by the elderly as having autonomy in the exercise of functional abilities required by society, such as the ability to meet family obligations and the ability to perform social roles. by defining their health as good or fair, the elderly individual is not characterized as someone free from diseases, but rather able to act over the environment.

Abstract: we examined for cohort differences in hypertension control between participants in the bambuí cohort study of aging of aging born 1916-1926 and 1927-1937. participants included hypertensive elderly aged 71-81 at baseline (n = 313) and at 11th wave follow up (n = 484). prevalence of hypertension awareness (70.9% and 81.2%, respectively), median medical appointments in previous 12 months (2 and 3, respectively) and antihypertensive drug use (74.4% and 90.7% respectively) increased significantly from older to younger cohort. however, prevalence of appropriately controlled hypertension among those treated (< 140/< 90mmhg) was similar in both cohorts (44.6% and 40.1%, p = 0.255). multivariate analysis returned schooling as the only factor independently associated with appropriately controlled hypertension. despite increased medical appointments and drug use in the recent cohort, the prevalence of appropriately controlled hypertension remained as low as in the older cohort.

Abstract: OBJETIVO: Realizou-se estudo com base populacional na cidade de Bambuí, MG, com cerca de 15.000 habitantes, para determinar a prevalência e os fatores associados ao uso de automedica o. MéTODOS: Foi selecionada uma amostra aleatória simples de 1.221 moradores com idade >18 anos: 796 relataram uso de medicamentos nos últimos 90 dias e foram incluídos no estudo (775 participaram). A coleta de dados foi feita por entrevistas domiciliares. Foram considerados três grupos de variáveis exploratórias: sociodemográficas, indicadores de condi o de saúde e indicadores de uso de servi os de saúde. Para análise estatística, foram utilizados: teste de qui-quadrado de Pearson e odds ratio ajustados pelo método de regress o logística multinomial. RESULTADOS: Do total de participantes, 419 (54,0%) relataram ter consumido exclusivamente medicamentos prescritos por médicos nos últimos 90 dias, 133 (17,2%) consumiram medicamentos prescritos e n o prescritos, e 223 (28,8%) consumiram, exclusivamente medicamentos n o prescritos. Após ajustamento por variáveis de confus o, as seguintes variáveis apresentaram associa es com o uso exclusivo de automedica o: sexo feminino (OR=0,6; IC95%=0,4-0,9); idade (OR=0,4; IC95%=0,3-0,6 e OR=0,2; IC95%=0,1-0,5 para 40-59 e >60 anos, respectivamente); >5 residentes no domicílio (OR=2,1; 1,1-4,0); número de consultas médicas nos últimos 12 meses (OR=0,2; IC95%=0,1-0,4 e OR=0,1; IC95%=0,0-0,1 para 1 e >2, respectivamente); consulta a farmacêutico nos últimos 12 meses (OR=1,9; IC95%=1,1-3,3) e relato de gastos com medicamentos nesse período (OR=0,5; IC95%= 0,3-0,8). CONCLUS O: Os resultados mostraram prevalência da automedica o semelhante à observada em países desenvolvidos, sugerindo que essa prática poderia atuar como um substituto da aten o formal à saúde.

Abstract: the relation among the application of thiamethoxam for thrips control and the severity of peanut scab was evaluated in field experiments runned at campinas and pindorama, during 2001/2002, in split-plot design. main plots consisted of the control and no control of thrips with thiamethoxam and, subplots, of six peanut cultivars: iac-tatu-st, iac-5, iac-22 (upright type, short cycle), runner iac-886, tegua and iac-caiapo (runner type, long cycle). the evaluations of number of thrips per leaflet and ratingof symptoms, were performed at 56 and 57 days after sowing date in campinas and pindorama, when the highest insect populations where registered. in both experiments a partial control of peanut scab was observed, and so, its severity was evaluated at 79 and 91 days of the plantation, in campinas and pindorama, respectively, using a rating scale based on symptons shown in stems and petioles. the results showed the efficiency of thiamethoxam in controling thrips in all cultivars. in both localities was observed a reduction in the severity of peanut scab, when thiamethoxam was applied. the severity of scab was higher in the upright cultivars, with the iac-caiapo showing the lower scores of severity. the yield was higher for the parcels treated with the insecticide, in both localities, and iac-caiapo presented superior yields in relation to the other cultivars. the action of thiamethoxam controling thrips and reducing scab severity should be more explored in integrated control practices.
