Vaccination against urinary tract infections caused by E. coli  [PDF]
Hartwig Wilhelm Bauer, Hira Shams, Ricarda Michaela Bauer
Advances in Bioscience and Biotechnology (ABB) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/abb.2013.43A064

Uropathogenic Escherichia coli (UPEC) causes uncomplicated urinary tract infection (UTI) depicts a prevalent and potentially uncompromising infectious disease. In this analysis, we explained the functions of an immunoproteomics concept to vaccine development that has been successfully employed to recognize vaccine targets in other pathogenic bacteria. Pyelonephritis strains E. coli CFT073 are used for outer membrane isolation mimics urinary tract environment in which iron limitation, osmotic stress, human urine, and exposure to uroepithelial cells are included. During experiments of UTI, the antigens that induce the humoral immune response is to identified, two-dimensional gel electrophoresis are employed for the isolation of outer membrane protein and probed using pooled antisera from 20 CBA/J mice chronically infected with E. coli CFT073. 23 total outer membrane antigens, in which a unique iron compound receptor is included, are reacted with antisera and were identified by mass spectrometry. These antigens comprises of proteins with known functions in UPEC pathogenesis such as, ChuA, IroN, IreA, Iha, IutA, and FliC. These all information and data elaborate that these factors are associated with virulence during UTI are directed by antibody response. We also represents that the genes encoding ChuA, IroN, hypothetical protein c2482, and IutA are significantly more prevalent among UPEC strains than among fecal-commensal E. coli isolates. Therefore we concluded that, the outer membrane antigens are identified in this study are conserved, could be reflective part for the UTI vaccine generated to induce protective immunity against UPEC infections.

Towards Cloud Management by Autonomic Manager Collaboration  [PDF]
Omid Mola, Michael A. Bauer
Int'l J. of Communications, Network and System Sciences (IJCNS) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/ijcns.2011.432097
Abstract: The management of clouds comprised of hundreds of hosts and virtual machines present challenging problems to administrators in ensuring that performance agreements are met and that resources are efficiently utilized. Automated approaches can help in managing such environments. Autonomic managers using policy-based management can provide a useful approach to such automation. We outline how collections of collaborating autonomic managers in cloud can be a step towards better management of clouds. We describe how a hierarchy of policy-based autonomic managers can collaborate using messages. The messages and when to communicate is inferred automatically from the policies given to the managers. We evaluate the approach via a prototype inspired by a cloud virtualized infrastructure and show how collaboration between managers in a hierarchy can improve the response time of a web server and avoid service level agreement violations. Results of three different scenarios shows the importance of collaboration between managers at different authority levels and how this collaboration can help to increase efficiency of current infrastructures.
Forma??o continuada de professores e resultados dos alunos no SARESP: propostas e realiza??es
Bauer, Adriana;
Educa??o e Pesquisa , 2011, DOI: 10.1590/S1517-97022011000400009
Abstract: this work presents results of a study conducted between 2005 and 2006 entitled the use of the results of the saresp exam: the role of assessment in teacher education policies (uso dos resultados do saresp: o papel da avalia??o nas políticas de forma??o docente), whose purpose was to analyze possibilities and limits of the use of the results obtained by pupils in the saresp exam (school performance assessment system of the state s?o paulo) to formulate and direct teacher education policies. the attention was focused on education programs for teachers of portuguese language to pupils in fundamental education. four out of the thirteen regional education directorships of the state of s?o paulo were visited to gain acquaintance with the teacher education programs they developed and to investigate to what extent they could be related to the results achieved in the saresp exam. the qualitative study adopted as its main strategy the exploratory survey, with the use of semi-structured interview and observation scripts. the theoretical framework employed brought together contributions by dennis palumbo (1998) and marcus figueiredo and argelina figueiredo (1986) to understand the concept and stages of public policy, as well as by elba barreto and regina pinto (2001), blaine worthen, james sanders and jody fitzpatrick (2004), and by almerindo afonso (1998) on the discussion about assessment programs, among others. it concludes that, the statements in the teacher education program and in the saresp documentations about the correlation between the former and pupil assessment results notwithstanding, the actual achievement of positive results depends on the effective commitment of the professionals working at the education directorships. formal actions by the secretariat for education to foster this use of the results have proved insufficient to ensure the proposed link between pupil assessment and teacher education.
é possível relacionar avalia??o discente e forma??o de professores? A experiência de S?o Paulo
Bauer, Adriana;
Educa??o em Revista , 2012, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-46982012000200004
Abstract: taking the context of s?o paulo's educational policy, an attempt is made to relate teacher training programmes to the results of saresp (s?o paulo evaluation system of educational performance).this work is an extension of a theoretical analysis carried out in the author's original text, produced for a master's thesis, focusing on the relationship between saresp and educational, training programmes of the state. going on statements made in official documents, concerning the current understanding of the relationship between the two, one wonders to what extent it is relevant to design programs, and teachers' training activities, using student performance during assessments, as indicative of what teachers require.the conclusion is reached that this relationship is not straightforward, despite being defended within educational policies concerned with the streamlined management of the educational system. furthermore, the need for further discussion and studies on this coupling: teacher education/ performance of students results, is indicated.
A new solution algorithm for skip-free processes to the left
Cubo (Temuco) , 2010, DOI: 10.4067/S0719-06462010000200011
Abstract: this paper proposes a new solution algorithm for steady state models describing skip-free processes to the left where each level has one phase. the computational complexity of the algorithm is independent of the number of levels of the system. if the skip parameter of the skip-free process is significantly smaller than the number of levels of the system, our algorithm numerically outperforms existing algorithms for skip-free processes. the proposed algorithm is based on a novel method for applying generalized fibonacci series to the solution of steady state models.
In memory of Prof. Helena Ra ková, MD., DSc., Dr.h.c.

Abstract: On April 13, 2010, Prof. Helena Ra ková, MD, DrSc., Dr.h.c., the legendary figure of Czecho-Slovak and world pharmacology, passed away. She was born in 1913 in Laussane in a physician's family of a Czech father and Russian mother. She was predestinated for science even due to her childhood experience and meetings with A. Einstein and the later Nobel prize winner W. Hess, who played in a chamber quartet with her father. Moreover, she became a polyglot from the earliest time of her life (Czech from her father, Russian from her mother), Switzerdeutsch and Hochdeutsch from nursary rhymes, French in the elementary school in Zurich and basic English in convent summer school in Weymouth, where as she put it "she got an early lesson that one loves one's own country but is also a citizen of the world".
Wohin mit den lteren medizinischen Zeitschriftenb nden? - Die Benutzungserhebung 2004 an der Universit tsbibliothek der Medizinischen Universit t Wien / Where to put the back numbers? - Usage of older medical journals at the Medical University Library Vienna in 2004
Bauer, Bruno
GMS Medizin-Bibliothek-Information , 2006,
Abstract: The increasing usage of e-journals questions the library's print archive. This is particularly valid for medical libraries where mainly up to date literature is required. From March to June 2004 the use of back numbers at the Medical University Library Vienna was recorded in order to assess utilisation of print journals published before 1986. During these four month 10.286 bound volumes were taken out from the print archive. Journal title, publication year and type of usage (local or interlibrary loan) was registered. A ranking list of the most used journals was compiled including their impact factor. On average it came to about 105 uses per workday. This remarkable demand for back numbers is a clear argument for keeping the library's print archive inhouse regarding the publishers' patchy online backfile collections.

Kommerzielle Open Access Publishing-Gesch ftsmodelle auf dem Prüfstand: konomische Zwischenbilanz der
Bauer, Bruno
GMS Medizin-Bibliothek-Information , 2006,
Abstract: Librarians amongst many others point towards Open Access Publishing as being the loophole in the current library and journal crisis. However, Open Access Publishing could entail higher costs for the university as a whole even though spendings for journals will cease. There is only a small number of published studies on BioMed Central's and PloS' business models. The same lack is valid for established commercial publishers with their hybrid models of Open Access Publishing. In common current business models of Open Access Publishing will not reduce stress on a libraries' journal budget. Financial consequences of a paradigm shift to Open Access Publishing will be presented for three Austrian universities by way of example. Journal expenditure (print and online) and numbers of published papers by university members will be taken into account to point out the aftermaths of a total shift towards Open Access Publishing.
