Battle against Aging and Folds: Benefit and Risks of the Semi-Permanent Fillers Polylactic Acid and Calcium Hydroxylapatite  [PDF]
Elisabeth Hanf, Ursula Gresser
Advances in Aging Research (AAR) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/aar.2014.32021

Background: Semi-permanent fillers are among the most favorable fillers on the market. Through their unique mode of action and its associated lasting aesthetic effect, they take an exceptional position. Objective: To compare the two semi-permanent fillers Poly-L-Lactic Acid (PLLA) and calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) in reference to the aesthetic result, patient satisfaction and side effects. Methods: Studies on side effects, patient satisfaction and aesthetic results after augmentation with semi-permanent fillers were analyzed. Results: Semi-permanent fillers seem excellently suited for the augmentation of very deep wrinkles particularly in the lower half of the face. In general, high patient satisfaction can be determined with both fillers. Here, the effect from the polylactic acid can be verified for up to two years while no effect could be verified already after one year in a majority of the patients augmented with CaHA. Short-term side effects such as bleedings or erythema in the region of the augmented area have been observed in both fillers during augmentation. The incidence of nodules and granulomas seems significantly higher in augmentations with PLLA compared to CaHA. Rare side effects such as an embolization of a blood vessel caused by the implant have been described for both fillers in case reports. Conclusion: Semi-permanent fillers are superbly suited for wrinkle augmentation. Which filler is the preferred one in what case depends strongly on the individual needs of the patient and the therapist’s experience.

Abia Elisabeth Achancho
Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2016.44028
Abstract: This work aimed at evaluating the impact of pension insurance on the socio-economic life of the retired population in Buea-Cameroon. The objectives of the study were to appraise the policies and procedures used to obtain old age pension and old age allowance, and to assess the impact of old age pension and old age allowance on the socio-economic life of the retired population in Cameroon, precisely the Buea municipality. To achieve these objectives, the researcher came out with methods of data collection which included questionnaires that were administered to respondents in Buea and interviews. The said data were analysed with the help of simple regression and it was discovered from the analyses that an increase in old age pension and old age allowance will better off the socio-economic life of the retired population. Moreover, this relationship also portrays that, a fall in old age pension and old age allowance will worsen off the socio-economic life of the retired population. From these findings, the researcher recommends that, the National Social Security Fund should be able to hold seminars and give advices to the retired population on how they could better manage their retirement income, which will enable them to meet up their standard of living and satisfy their basic necessities such as their health, children’s education, feeding and many others.
The History, the Memory and the Educational Institution: A Necessary Relationship  [PDF]

Creative Education (CE) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2016.79140
Abstract: This paper discusses the relationship between history, memory and the institution of the school. It builds on what the process of searching for, analyzing and interpreting sources according to a theoretical framework reveals about the way the institution of the elementary school came into being in the province of Paraná (1854-1889). Such reflections resulted from dealing with official documents, reports and letters of the public teaching (Presidents of the Province, General Inspectors of Public teaching and teachers who worked in schools) preserved in the Public Archives of Paraná. For in depth analysis we used Le Goff, Saviani, Magalhaes, Farge, Bloch, Thompson and Ciavatta. The reflections proceed from the position that teachers demonstrated originated by the schools. It is concluded that although the data presented by the people in charge at the end of the provincial period showed the failure of the school education, in fact, the work of the teachers has contributed to the process of the institution of the elementary school in the Province.
How Can Manual Rotation Reduce Vacuum, Forceps and Caesarean Deliveries?—A Review of the Evidence  [PDF]
Cathrine Os, Elisabeth Severinsson
Open Journal of Nursing (OJN) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ojn.2017.71007
Abstract: The aim of this review was to investigate whether manual rotation can be used to reduce vacuum, forceps and caesarean deliveries in women with occiput posterior or occiput transverse positions from 7 cm dilation in labour. A search strategy was developed and relevant papers published between 1946 and January 2015 were identified from electronic databases. Key search terms used were manual and digital rotation, labour presentation, obstetric labour complications, occiput posterior and version foetal. The search revealed 330 papers. A short list of 33 publications of possible relevance was compiled and assessed using the following criteria: primary studies on the effectiveness of manual rotation performed in women with singleton occiput posterior or occiput transverse presentations published in English or the Scandinavian languages. The quality of the included studies was evaluated by means of the critical appraisal tools for quantitative studies. Seven studies were included in the thematic analysis. The results varied but the main finding was that in order to decrease vacuum, forceps and caesarean deliveries by means of manual rotation, it is essential that the procedure is successful. The success rate of manual rotation is dependent on the experience of the healthcare professionals who perform the rotation procedure rather than the technique employed. Predictors of successful manual rotation were used after engagement of the foetal head, at full dilatation and prophylactic use before failure to progress in labour. In conclusion, although the results vary, there is a consensus in all the studies that manual rotation is worth considering and that it can contribute to decreasing vacuum, forceps and caesarean deliveries. The implications for practice are that successful manual rotation can reduce caesarean delivery and increase spontaneous vaginal delivery, but experience is necessary to perform successful rotations. Because there are no risk factors associated with manual or digital rotation when performed after engagement of the head and at full dilatation, they are worth considering. The central role of the midwife in each individual labour makes her important for ensuring that manual rotation can be considered at the right time in labour.

Santos, André L.;Takeuchi, Regina M.;Stradiotto, Nelson R.;
Journal of the Brazilian Chemical Society , 2005, DOI: 10.1590/S0103-50532005000600006
Abstract: the electrochemical reduction of diloxanide furoate (df) in acetonitrile on glassy carbon electrode was studied in this work. it was observed that df is reduced after a reversible one-electron transfer followed by an irreversible chemical reaction, diagnosed as c-cl bond cleavage. its reduction was followed by linear (lsv), differential pulse (dpv) and square wave voltammetry (swv). analytical curves were obtained for df determination using all the investigated voltammetric techniques. for lsv was obtained a linear range (lr) from 5.0 x 10-4 to 1.0 x 10-2 mol l-1, with detection limit (dl) of 1.5 x 10-4 mol l-1 and sensitivity (s) of 2.1 x 104 μa mol-1 l. the analytical parameters obtained by dpv were: lr = 5.0 x 10-4 to 2.2 x 10-3 mol l-1, dl = 7.8 x 10-5 mol l-1, s = 3.7 x 104 μa mol-1 l. for swv were obtained a lr = 7.5 x 10-6 to 1.2 x 10-3 mol l-1, dl = 5.5 x 10-6 mol l-1 and s = 2.8 x 105 μa mol-1 l. thus, the swv was the most sensible technique, which can be used for df determination at low concentration levels. statistics methods were used to evaluate the analytical procedure, where recovery around to 100% was obtained for all voltammetric techniques. relative standard deviations were lower than 5.0% (n=5). the obtained t values evaluating all the three voltammetric methods were less than the tabulated ones, indicating that there are no evidences of systematic error.
Electrochemical reduction and cathodic stripping voltammetric determination of clotrimazole
Pereira, Francisco C.;Stradiotto, Nelson R.;Zanoni, Maria Valnice B.;
Journal of the Brazilian Chemical Society , 2001, DOI: 10.1590/S0103-50532001000200013
Abstract: the reduction of clotrimazole at a mercury electrode, in phosphate buffer, ph>6, involves a reversible one-electron process. the electrochemical process presents a large contribution from adsorption effects. for the differential pulse polarographic determination the addition of triton x-100 is recommended. clotrimazole can be determined by cathodic stripping voltammetry at 50 ng ml-1 level when pre-accumulated for 3 min at an accumulation potential of -0.20 v. the proposed method is applied successfully for the determination of clotrimazole in a commercial formulation.
