Revista Saúde.Com , 2010,
Abstract: The eating habits formation of the individuals with the Down’s syndrome deserves special attention because, besides specific anatomical and physiological alterations, some aspects also interfere in this process. Among them, the parents’behavior is the one that counts most, and it’s essential to establish a healthy diet. Facing this, the objective in this study was to assess the habitual diet in eight overweight adolescents with the Down’s syndrome living in the South Region of Tocantins State. These adolescents are between 10 and 19 years of age. To instrumentalize the referred assessment, the Food Frequency Questionnaire for Adolescents was applied and it was compared with the Adapted Food Pyramid recommendations. It was observed 82% of the adolescents used to eat less than the recommended amount of the vegetables and cereal/bread/tubers/roots; 68% eat less fruits and 87% eat less milk/dairy products groups. It was also detected an exaggeration in the consumption of grains, meat/eggs and sugar/candy groups. It was concluded that the adolescents habitually keep a diet out of the pattern considered healthy. It’s predominantly easy chewing food and high in calories, what may bring risks of getting overweight and even obese. Thus, it’s vital to go through an eating re-education process, in whichthe family has participation, so that changes in the eating habits may be achieved.

Abstract: The Down's syndrome, presenting a chromosomepathy characterized by the additional presence of a chromosome in the 21st pair, causes a disturbance to the human body cell functions, making people who have this alteration present injure in their organic system and thus, bigger sensitivity to some illnesses. Facing this problem, in this project, in which a method of a context assessment was used, the objective was to develop an assessment about the facial and breathing profile in 4 to 10-year-old children, who have the Down's syndrome and live in Gurupi / TO, considering some important aspects of the context which may lead those children to present breathing problems. It's concluded that those children have a decrease of strength on the facial muscles because of an inherent hypotonicity. This makes it difficult for them to keep an appropriate nose breathing and, consequently, increases the risks of breathing infections, which can lead them to death. Because of this, it's vital to have a physiotherapeutic intervention to have the strength and muscle system fuction back, especially the segments involved in breathing.

Abstract: eparation and evaluation of lidocaine hydrochloride in cyclodextrin inclusion complexes for development of stable gel in association with chlorhexidine gluconate for urogenital use Original Research (4959) Total Article Views Authors: Soares da Silva LFJ, Carmo FA, Borges VRA, Monteiro LM, Rodrigues CR, Cabral LM, Sousa VP Published Date June 2011 Volume 2011:6 Pages 1143 - 1154 DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.2147/IJN.S20409 Luiz Francisco Jones Soares da Silva, Flavia Almada do Carmo, Vinicius Raphael de Almeida Borges, Lidiane Mota Monteiro, Carlos Rangel Rodrigues, Lúcio Mendes Cabral, Valeria Pereira de Sousa Departamento de Medicamentos, Faculdade de Farmácia, Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro, RJ, Brazil Abstract: Inclusions of lidocaine hydrochloride in cyclodextrins were prepared to obtain stable complexes compatible for association with chlorhexidine in a new gel formulation for use in urogenital applications. Two cyclodextrins, β-cyclodextrin and methyl-β-cyclodextrin, were used for encapsulating lidocaine hydrochloride through solubilization and kneading techniques. The lidocaine–cyclodextrin complexes were characterized by ultraviolet spectroscopy, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, differential scanning calorimetry, and X-ray diffraction. The results revealed that the techniques generated good yields of inclusion products that maintained the functional properties of lidocaine. In addition, the inclusion products obtained improved the compatibility of lidocaine hydrochloride with chlorhexidine in solution and a gel formulation. The gel formulation displayed desirable rheological and physicochemical properties. The results presented here are the first description of the inclusion of lidocaine with cyclodextrins, which improves compatibility with chlorhexidine in formulations for simultaneous delivery.

Crop Breeding and Applied Biotechnology , 2012,
Abstract: Data from 11 years of a breeding program for upland rice of the partner institutions Embrapa arroze feij o, Epamig and UFLA conducted in 11 regions of Minas Gerais, were analyzed by the mixed modelmethodology. The genotypic correlations between environments ranged from medium to high, suggesting the predominance of simple interaction, but with differentiated ranking of genotypes at the different locations. Lines with specific performance, as well as lines of broad adaptation were identified. The performance of cultivar BRSMG Caravera, released in 2007, was superior to the others in terms of grain yield at all sites assessed, in other words, broad adaptation, in addition to a high genotypic performance.

Abstract: high intakes of sodium have been pointed out as one of the causes of high blood pressure. carbonated drinks are highly consumed in brazil but there is no data on their levels of sodium. the present work analyzed 97 samples, encompassing 14 brands and 7 types of soft drinks (cola, guaraná, lemon, orange, grape, soda and tonic water). the sodium concentrations varied between 19 and 202mg na/l. the beverages sweetened with sugar exhibited an average of 74 ± 13mg na/l while the artificially sweetened drinks had an average 151 ± 39mg na/l. this means that the "light" carbonated beverages contain twice the amount of sodium of the ones sweetened with sugar. an average soft drink consumer in brazil (259ml/day) may ingest about 19mg of sodium from the beverage if he prefers sugar sweetened types and 39mg na/day in case he prefers the light types. on the other hand, a heavy consumer (2l/day) would ingest about 300mg na/day only from soft drinks and this should be taken into consideration by persons under low sodium diet.

Abstract: fibrosarcoma is a malignant mesenchymal neoplasm of fibroblasts that rarely affects the oral cavity and can cause local recurrences or metastasis. in this article we describe a case of primary fibrosarcoma in the mandible in a 16-year-old girl. microscopically the tumor showed an intense proliferation of spindle-shaped cells, varying little in size and shape and arranged in parallel bands, partly crossing each other, the mitotic activity was increased and there was nuclear pleomorphism. immunohistochemically the cells only showed immunoreactivity for vimentin and negativity for s-100 protein, cd 68, cytokeratin cocktail, hmb-45, cd34, pan actin hhf 35, desmin, smooth muscle actin and epithelial membrane antigen (ema). based on clinical, radiological, histological and immunohistochemical findings the final diagnosis was high-grade intra-osseous fibrosarcoma. the treatment choice was radical surgery with mandibular reconstruction. after one year and nine months of the treatment the patient displayed multiple metastases. radiation therapy and chemotherapy were used as adjuvant treatment. unfortunately, the girl died two years after initial diagnosis.

Abstract: the tear film plays an important role in maintaining the integrity of the ocular suface. during general anesthesia, tear production is considerably reduced, which requires care to prevent adverse effects that result in diseases of these structures. studies comparing the effects of induction of anaesthesia with thiopental and propofol on tear production have not been carried out yet. because these drugs are used in veterinary medicine, we decided to evaluate the tear production in 30 dogs undergoing experimental surgery as well as routine procedures at the veterinary hospital of federal university of vi?osa. patients were divided into two groups of equal number. all animals were sedated with clorpromazine and maintained with isoflurane in diluted oxygen. group 1 was induced with thiopental whereas group 2 with propofol. schirmer tear test 1 was performed before sedation (t0), 15 minutes after sedation (t1) and 10 minutes after induction of anesthesia (t2) with the drug chosen for one of the groups. there was a significant decrease in tear production for both drugs, but no significant statistical differences were found between them. thus, considering the results and the way in which the study was conducted, we suggest protecting the cornea and conjunctiva of patients during anesthesia using any of the drugs here evaluated.

Abstract: this study was developed to evaluate the repellent activity of n,n-diethyl-3-methylbenzamide (deet) against amblyomma cajennense nymphs. two repellent bioassays were compared and the effective concentration and repellent time were calculated. the fingertip test was accomplished to evaluate in vivo four concentrations of the compound (0.200; 0.100; 0.050 and 0.025 mg.cm-2) and the filter-paper bioassay to evaluate in vitro the two highest concentrations. the compound provided repellence higher than 90% in all concentrations and at least 95% repellency in the highest concentration over 5 hours. the effective concentration against 50% of tested nymphs (ec50) was 0.006 mg.cm-2 and the ec99 was 0.036 mg.cm-2. those concentrations were lower than the ones obtained against other tick species, denoting the effectiveness of deet against a. cajennense. the repellency time against 50% of the ticks (rt50) was 4.8 hours and the rt90 was 2.7 hours. both bioassays were adequate to evaluate a. cajennense repellency and provided similar results; however the in vivo test is more appropriate to estimate the effective concentration and repellency time.

Abstract: background: considering that peripheral arterial obstruction is a diffuse condition, manifesting as a variable clinical feature and with varied intervention outcomes, it is important to assess patients with peripheral artery occlusive disease using instruments that may provide objective and reliable data. objective: to investigate and compare the reliability of both the 6-minute walking test (6mwt) and the shuttle walking test (swt) in patients with claudication secondary to peripheral artery occlusive disease. methods: fourteen fontaine stage ii patients participated in the study. eleven patients were submitted to both tests, while three patients only performed the 6mwt. after familiarization, the patients were tested on two occasions, with maximal 1-week interval between measurements. the intraclass correlation coefficient (icc2,1) was used to check for test-retest reliability. results: mean maximal walking distance for the 6mwt in both test and retest was 397.04±120.74 and 408.6±153.64 m (p = 0.58) respectively; icc = 0.87 (p = 0.00005). for the swt, mean was 345±145.75 m, and 345.91±127.97 m in the retest (p = 0.92); icc = 0.99 (p = 0.00005). mean times for claudication onset with the 6mwt test-retest were 172.25±88.23 and 148.58±70.36 s (p = 0.13); icc = 0.81 (p = 0.0004); while for the swt these values were 282±141.90 and 267.14±150.58 s (p = 0.55); icc = 0.91 (p = 0.0008). conclusion: both walking tests are reliable and can be used for clinical and functional assessment of these patients. the swt, however, yielded higher reliability coefficients, which suggests that it may be preferable to evaluate these individuals' performance.
