Abstract: Introduction: Diarrheagenic Escherichia coli (DEC) is a relevant cause of diarrhea, particularly among infants and young children in developing countries. Methodology: We compared the frequency, antimicrobial resistance, adherence, enterovirulence and genetic diversity of DEC isolates from Guarani indigenous population under five living in distinct villages in Brazil. Results: Of the 314 E. coli isolates from 57 children, with and without diarrhea, 15% (48/314) were classified in DEC categories: aEPEC (56%, 27/48), EAEC (35%, 17/48) and ETEC (8%, 4/48). ETEC belonged to plylogroup A, EAEC to groups A, B1, B2 and D, and aEPEC to phylogroups A, B1, and B2. EAEC exhibited the aggregative adherence phenotype while ETEC and aEPEC the aggregative and undefined patterns. Multidrug-resistance was detected in aEPEC, ETEC and EAEC while extensive drug-resistance was found in EAEC and aEPEC. RAPD typing revealed a genetically diverse bacterial population. Conclusion: This is the first report regarding aspects of DEC in an indigenous Brazilian population, showing that Guarani children are DEC carriers and that antimicrobial resistance at high levels is widely disseminated among these enteropathogens.

Abstract: A síndrome da deficiência do horm nio do crescimento (GH) no adulto está bem estabelecida, assim como os benefícios da terapia de reposi o com o GH recombinante. Dentre as altera es observadas nesses pacientes, as da composi o corporal est o entre as mais estudadas, sendo caracterizadas por um aumento da gordura corporal total com predomínio de gordura no tronco, diminui o da massa magra, da for a muscular e da água corporal total. Todas s o quase completamente revertidas após tratamento de reposi o com GH. Estudamos a composi o corporal e potência muscular de 11 pacientes com deficiência de GH, antes e após serem submetidos a um programa de treinamento com exercícios contra resistência por 12 semanas, sem reposi o com o GH. Avaliamos a composi o corporal através de medidas de circunferências, dobras cutaneas, peso, altura, cálculo do índice de massa corporal e rela o cintura-quadril. A potência muscular localizada foi avaliada em vários grupos musculares através de cinco exercícios numa unidade de exercícios musculares localizados, onde foi acoplado um tensi metro. Após análise dos resultados, observamos que n o houve mudan a na composi o corporal destes pacientes, em rela o ao índice de massa corporal, rela o cintura-quadril e peso. Quando estudamos separadamente a soma das dobras cutaneas centrais e periféricas, houve diminui o no volume da soma das dobras centrais. Em rela o à for a e potência muscular, n o houve ganho de for a de preens o manual medida através do dinam metro (p>0,05), já a potência mostrou um aumento significativo após treinamento (p<0,01). Concluímos que esses pacientes, se submetidos a um programa de treinamento de exercícios contra resistência realizado em casa, ganham potência muscular e que esta forma de exercício é uma alternativa terapêutica para que possam melhorar sua qualidade de vida, quando n o for possível a utiliza o do GH.

Abstract: growth hormone (gh) deficiency syndrome in adults is well established, as well as the benefits of replacement with recombinant gh. body composition changes are frequently studied in these patients, and are characterized by an increase in total body fat with predominant trunk obesity, a decrease in lean body mass, muscular strength and total body water. all of these features are almost completely reversed after recombinant gh therapy. this study evaluated body composition and muscle power in 11 gh-deficient patients before and after undergoing a resistance-training program for 12 weeks without gh replacement. we evaluated the body composition by measuring girths, skinfolds, weight, height, body mass index, waist-hip ratio and abdominal computerized tomography. muscle power was assessed in several muscle groups by mean of five exercises in a muscle-training machine, to which a tensiometer was attached. the data analysis showed that there were no changes in body composition, body mass index, waist-hip ratio and weight. when we studied separately the sum of central and peripheral skinfolds, we noted a volume reduction in the sum of central skinfolds. with relation to muscular strength and power there was no gain in handgrip muscular strength (p>0.05), whereas muscular power showed a significant increase after the training (p<0.01). we concluded that when these patients are submitted to a home-based training program of resistance - type exercises they gain muscular power, and that this type of exercise is a therapeutic alternative that can improve their quality of life whenever the use of recombinant gh is not possible.

Brazilian Journal of Chemical Engineering , 2007, DOI: 10.1590/S0104-66322007000300007
Abstract: a numerical study was conducted to investigate steady heat transfer and flow phenomena of natural convection of air in enclosures, with three aspect ratios (h/w = 1, 2, and 4), within which there is a local heat source on the bottom wall at three different positions, wh. this heat source occupies 1% of the total volume of the enclosure. the vertical walls in the enclosures are insulated and there is an opening on the right wall. the natural convection is influenced by the difference in temperature between the left and right walls, represented by a rayleigh number (rae), and by local heat source, represented by a rayleigh number (rai). numerical simulations were performed for several values of the rayleigh number ranging between 103 and 106, while the intensity of the two effects - the difference in temperature on the vertical walls and the local heat source - was evaluated based on the rai/rae ratio in the range between 0 and 2500. the analysis proceeds by observing variations in the streamlines and isotherms with respect to the different rae, r ratios, aspect ratios, of the radius and positions of the local heat source. the average nusselt numbers on the hot and cold walls are influenced by different values of the parameters r, rae, wh, and h/w. results show the presence of different flow patterns in the enclosures studied. thus, the flow and heat transfer can be controlled by external heating, and local heat source.

Abstract: modified clays were used to remove ethyl acetate from aqueous solutions. these clays were regenerated using supercritical co2. structural changes in the montmorillonite clay after treatment with quaternary amines were studied. the surface properties of the modified clay changed from highly hydrophilic to highly organophilic. the clay was regenerated by percolation of a stream of co2 through the porous montmorillonite matrix. different pressures and temperatures were employed, resulting in different fluid conditions (gas, liquid, and supercritical). the experimental data was fitted with a simplified model. the best desorption result was found under supercritical conditions. a crossover effect was observed. the capacity of the modified clay as a pollutant attenuator remained almost unchanged after a regeneration cycle.

Abstract: the knowledge of the phase equilibrium is one of the most important factors to study the design of separation processes controlled by the equilibrium. fatty acids are present in high concentration as by-products in vegetable oils but the equilibrium data involving these components is scarce. the objective of this work is the experimental determination of the liquid-vapor equilibrium of five binary different systems formed by carbon dioxide and palmitic acid (c16:0), stearic acid (c18:0), oleic acid (c18:1), linoleic acid (c18:2) and linolenic acid (c18:3). the equilibrium experimental data was collected at 40, 60 and 80oc at 60, 90 and 120 bar, at the extract and raffinate phases, using an experimental apparatus containing an extractor, a gas cylinder and pressure and temperature controllers. the data was modeled using the cubic equation of state of peng-robinson with the mixing rule of van der waals with binary interaction parameters. the model was adequate to treat the experimental data at each temperature and at all the temperatures together. the best model that includes the van der waals mixing rule with two parameters has maximum deviation of 17%. the distribution coefficients were also analyzed and it was concluded that the fractionation of the fatty acids is possible using supercritical carbon dioxide.

Abstract: this study examines the method to development of an industrial unity to purification of vegetable oils using extraction with co2 under supercritical conditions. aiming at the conception of a commercial plant from laboratory scale, the study must begin through determination of some experimental measurement and a study of energy required in the process. in previous work the optimum conditions (t, p) to purification of vegetable oil by supercritical co2 were determined. it was possible to deacidify, deodorize e clarify degummed vegetable oils. the step of energy optimization involves a large number of variables in operational conditions seeking to supply suitable data for definition of yield and quality of product, such as the extraction time. the representation of the process in solvent phase diagrams is more convenient to determine the thermodynamics proprieties in each stage of process . the temperature -entropy (txs) diagrams are particular suitable for determination of energy required or removed in a reversible process. after determination of the operational conditions and time to each individual stage, it is possible to plot the variation of pressure and temperature versus time , as well as to define and plan the necessary furnitures to supercritical extraction.

Abstract: purification of vegetable oils using supercritical co2. this work presents a study on the extraction of free fatty acids from crude soy and brazil nut oils, using supercritical carbon dioxide. it was developed in two stages, at first moment we verified the possibility to extract free fatty acids from these oils and then the extraction conditions were evaluated at pressures changing between 50-140 bar and temperatures between 40-80oc during 40-160 minutes. it was concluded that it is possible to promote the deacidification of vegetable oils. experimental data has shown that an increase in pressure produces a significant increase in extraction yield, but an increase in temperature is not so signifcant, and the extraction yield was not satisfactory, it was around 30% under 140 bar and 80oc to both oils. this process was optimized by degumming crude vegetable oils before the deacidification using supercritical carbon dioxide. the degumming was performed by through two different methods, one for hydratable gums and other for nonhydratable gums. experimental data was obtained under 140 bar and 80oc during 40-160 minutes and showed that the degumming was really necessary before the deacidification in supercritical carbon dioxide. the extraction yield increased to around 57% for soy oil and 42% for brazil nut oil. the best method of degumming must remove as much hydratables gums as nonhydratables gums. finally we used cossolvent (ethanol 1-5% of oil weight) to aid in the extraction, and the extraction yield increased to around 65% to soy oil and 56% to brazil nut oil, totally deggumed.
