Mass Spectrum in the Minimal Supersymmetric 3-3-1 Model  [PDF]
Marcos Cardoso Rodriguez
Journal of Modern Physics (JMP) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/jmp.2011.210149
Abstract: We consider the minimal supersymmetric extension of the 3-3-1 model. We study the mass spectrum of this model in the fermionic and gauge bosons sectors without the antisextet. We also present some phenomenological consequences of this model at colliders such as Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and International Linear Collider (ILC).
The changes on intimate partner violence against women in the health system in Portugal  [PDF]
Raquel Cardoso, José Ornelas
Health (Health) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/health.2013.57A4010

In Portugal, over the last 20 years, we have seen great strides in addressing intimate partner violence against women by their male partners. Measuring and understanding progress, and achieving sustainable systems change is a major challenge and to achieve this aim we need to identify events, persons and settings that contribute for the critical factors that create long term transformations in the systems and the creation of new resources [1]. Since the healthcare system is one of the main actors of intervention with survivors, the goal of this project was to interview key stakeholders from the healthcare system in order to understand the main changes they perceive have happened over the past two decades. Based on interviews with key stakeholders, our study explores the evidences of the changes that occurred in the healthcare system, the intersections with other systems and their visions for the future.

Show me the genes – I will tell you who/how to treat!
Fatima Cardoso
Breast Cancer Research , 2005, DOI: 10.1186/bcr1010
Abstract: The recently published study from the National Surgical Adjuvant Breast and Bowel Project (NSABP) group lead by Paik [1], in collaboration with Genomic Health Inc., represents a landmark trial in this field. Using quantitative RT-PCR, these researchers developed a recurrence score based on 21 genes that appears to predict accurately the likelihood of distant recurrence in tamoxifen-treated patients with node-negative, oestrogen receptor (ER)-positive breast cancer. Initially, this predictor was designed to be a general prognostic tool, developed in a mixed population of patients receiving chemotherapy and tamoxifen. Following a literature search of the most important microarray experiments relating to breast cancer prognosis, 250 candidate genes were selected. Of these, 21 genes were chosen and the recurrence score developed by analyzing the results of these genes in three independent preliminary studies involving 447 patients [2-4]. The selection of the final 16 cancer-related genes was based primarily on the strength of their performance in all three studies and the consistency of primer or probe performance in the assay. Cutoff points were chosen based on the results of NSABP trial B-20, and allowed for the classification of patients into three risk categories: low risk (recurrence score <18), intermediate risk (recurrence score ≥ 18 and <31), and high risk (recurrence score ≥ 31).The report published in the New England Journal of Medicine [1] describes the retrospective validation of this multigene predictor in 675 archival samples from node-negative, ER-positive breast cancer patients, treated with adjuvant tamoxifen in the NSABP B-14 trial. Fifty-one per cent of patients were classified as low risk, with a rate of distant recurrence at 10 years of 6.8%, and 27% patients were classified as high risk, with a rate of distant recurrence at 10 years of 30.5%; this difference was statistically significant (P < 0.001). The recurrence score was also significantly corr
Escravid?o e sociabilidade capitalista: um ensaio sobre inércia social
Cardoso, Adalberto;
Novos Estudos - CEBRAP , 2008, DOI: 10.1590/S0101-33002008000100006
Abstract: based on historiographical studies that since 1980?s have undertaken a broad review of the social history of labor in brazil, the article presents some sociological hypotheses about the permanence of structural features of slavery past in the process of building of the capitalist sociality in the country. this legacy includes a depreciated perception of manual work, a derogatory image of black and even national people as workers, an indifference of the elites toward poor majorities, and an extremely rigid social hierarchy. according to the author, this framework of structural inertia provided the general parameters of free labor?s reproduction in the beginning of capitalist order in brazil.

Sobre a isomeriza??o do ácido Górlico (C18H30O2)
Cardoso, Humberto;
Memórias do Instituto Oswaldo Cruz , 1942, DOI: 10.1590/S0074-02761942000200001
Abstract: the present note describes the results of the investigation concerning the possibility of the isomerization of gorlic acid. gorlic acid has been isolated on 1938 by cole & cardoso (1) and since then a few experiments have been made regarding its particular biological properties. during such researches it was noted a reaction with nitrous acid, similar to that of oleic acid, which has been mencioned on previous paper (6). using the bertram selenium method it has been possible to show that gorlic acid would not change to an isomeric form, i.e., no evidence of ?elaidinization? was found. the reaction with nitous acid can be explained by the impurification due to the presence of oleic acid in a very small amount which could not been removed from gorlic acid.
Differential sensitivity in growth and development of dental and skeletal tissue to environmental quality
Arquivos de Medicina , 2007,
Abstract: dental and skeletal development provide a measure of physiological age that can be used to predict the optimal timing for treatment in orthodontic, orthopaedic or paediatric clinical practice or to estimate chronological age of child skeletal remains in forensic or archaeological contexts. because the environmental sensitivity of skeletal and dental development can affect the ability to predict treatment timing and accuracy of age estimations, it is important to understand how these two tissues respond differently to environmental insults, such disease or malnutrition. this paper reviews the literature that supports the general assertion that dental development is less affected by environmental quality than skeletal development. it is concluded that the environmental sensitivity of tooth formation (compared to tooth eruption) has been rarely assessed and that there is a paucity of studies that examine the development of both tissues against socioeconomic and nutritional status or non-genetic disease.
Toxina botunílica tipo B no manejo de distonia n?o-responsiva a toxina botunílica tipo A

Arquivos de Neuro-Psiquiatria , 2003, DOI: 10.1590/S0004-282X2003000400015
Abstract: background: botulinum toxin (btx) injection is the first choice treatment for focal dystonias. however 10% or more of patients who receive repetitive injections of btx type a (btx-a) lose response (secondary non-responders). one of the strategies to manage such patients is to treat them with another serotype. the aim of this article is to describe my experience with btx type b (btx-b) in the management of patients with focal dystonia who became secondary non-responders to btx-a. method: open-label non-controlled use of btx-b injections to treat dystonia patients who developed secondary nonresponse to btx-a response to treatment was rated on a 0-4 scale (jankovic). results: four patients entered the study. pacient 1- at age 48 this man developed idiopathic cervical dystonia. five years later he also presented with blepharospasm and idiopathic oromandibular dystonia. he was treated with 7604u of btx-a along 23 sessions separated by a mean interval of 18.8 weeks (range 6-39). loss of response was noticed after the seventh session. first treatment with btx-b consisted of injection of 20000u with response rated 3 but duration of 3 weeks. second session, 23500u, resulted in score 4 with response lasting 12 weeks. patient 2- this man, with tourette syndrome since age 8 years, developed tardive blepharospasm at age 51. on 8 sessions of btx-a injections he received a cumulative dosage of 550u with a mean interval between sessions of 8.8 weeks (range 6-12). decline of response was noticed after the fifth session. first treatment with btx-b, 3000u, had a response rated 3 with duration of 12 weeks. second session, 6000u, resulted in score 4. patient 3- this woman noticed onset of blepharospasm at age 58 and developed oromandibular and laryngeal dystonia as well as cervical dystonia, respectively, at ages 59 and 65. in other institutions she received 6 sessions of btx-a. in my service she received a dosage of 1404u along 8 sessions with a mean interval between sessions of 17.4 w
Tratamento da doen?a de Parkinson
Cardoso, Francisco;
Arquivos de Neuro-Psiquiatria , 1995, DOI: 10.1590/S0004-282X1995000100001
Abstract: parkinson's disease (pd) accounts for 58% of patients with parkinsonism. the second most common cause is drug-induced parkinsonism, diagnosed in 20% of patients. levodopa remains as the mainstay of pd treatment. although there is controversy regarding the timing for beginning levodopa, it should be used when the patient develops significant disability. other drugs that may be used are anticholinergic agents, useful for tremor; amantadine, for rigidity and bradykinesia; dopamine agonists, for the management of levedopa complications; and selegeline which may be a neuroprotector agent. problems in the management of pd include primary failure, secondary failure and levodopa complications. antidopaminergic drugs, severe rest tremor and diagnosis error may lead to primary failure. progression of pd is the most common explanation for secondary failure.the most important levodopa therapy complications are dyskinesias and fluctuations. other common problems are dysautonomia, depression, psychosis and dementia. the author discusses the phenomenology and management of these complications. future perspectives include brain repair sugeries.
