Abstract: Introduction: Lack of information continues to lead the professionals of various areas to contribute to environment degradation, and Dentistry is a potential source of contamination through chemical residues resulting from radiographic procedures. Objective: To evaluate the management of residues resulting from radiographic processing in dental radiology clinics and dental offices in S o Luís – MA, Brazil. Material and methods: A semi-structured questionnaire was prepared with the aim of characterizing the behavior of professionals and their procedures for discarding the processing solutions (developer, fixer, and water) and radiographic packing materials. A sample of 100 individuals represented 7.8% of the total number of 1,281 dentists in the city of S o Luís. Results: A total of 92% of the participants believed that radiographic effluents could cause damage to the environment. Concerning to the fixer discarding, 43% affirmed that they threw the solution directly through the sink, 36% diluted the fixer in water and threw it into the sink, 14% used a specialized company to discard it and 7% used other means. The developer was discarded as follows: 42% threw it down the sink, 36% diluted it in water before throwing it into the sink, 13% used a specialized company to discard it and 9% used other ways. Considering to the discarding of the packing of the radiographic films, 51% threw them into the trash and 49% used a specialized disposal company. Conclusion: Large portions of dentists do not discard radiographic processing residues and films correctly.

Dalton Fazanaro, Paulo Amorim, Thiago Moraes, Jorge Silva, Helio Pedrini
Applied Mathematics (AM) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/am.2016.72013
Abstract: InVesalius is an open-source software for reconstruction of computed tomography and magnetic resonance images, which allows the user to make analysis and segmentation of virtual anatomical models. Physical models can be printed with the aid of rapid prototyping, giving the medical community a reliable instrument to help planning surgeries. To offer the user more control over the model, this work describes a methodology and tool developed for NURBS parameterization that provides mechanisms for adjusting the shape or even selecting a particular region of interest of the surface. Furthermore, the tool gives the option to export the final results of the process to a STEP file, which allows further edition in any well-known CAD software.
A radio tracking study of home range and movements of the marsupial Micoureus demerarae (Thomas) (Mammalia, Didelphidae) in the Atlantic forest of south-eastern Brazil
Moraes Junior, Edsel Amorim;Chiarello, Adriano Garcia;
Revista Brasileira de Zoologia , 2005, DOI: 10.1590/S0101-81752005000100011
Abstract: from august 2001 to july 2002 the home range and movements of seven micoureus demerarae (thomas, 1905) (three males and four females) were investigated using radio tracking in the uni?o biological reserve, state of rio de janeiro, south-eastern brazil. a total of 436 locations was obtained and home range estimated with fixed kernel (95% of data points), and minimum convex polygon (mcp) methods, with 100 and 95% of data points. male home ranges estimated by mcp (100%) ranged from 5.4-24.2 ha and females from 0.3-10.7 ha. corresponding figures calculated with kernel (95%) were 4-10.9 ha for males and 1.3-5.9 ha for females. animals travelled on average 423 m/night, with males travelling significantly further (582.8 m/night) than females (335.1 m/night) (t test, t = 3.609, p = 0.001). we concluded that radio tracking produced much larger home ranges than those estimated with traditional live-trapping techniques, suggesting that the latter might underestimate ranging when the area covered with traps is relatively small (ca. 1 ha or less). radio tracking also indicated that m. demerarae, although predominantly arboreal and weighting only ca. 130 g., has movements similar in magnitude to larger-sized terrestrial didelphimorph marsupials, such as didelphis linnaeus, 1758, philander linnaeus, 1758 and metachirus (desmarest, 1817).

Abstract: aiming to contribute to the current and intense process of revision of conceptions and educational practices mediating learning and development of young children in day care centers and pre-schools, and based on our research experiences at cindedi, this paper approaches several questions which, in our view, are relevant for the understanding of collective education. how does developmental research contribute to this discussion? what conceptions about development is it based on? which methodological perspectives are more promising for the comprehension of the ways children and their teachers act and change with their experiences? how to understand notions such as developmental stages, teachers’ role in the learning process, factors explaining infant development and developmental evaluations in infancy? both family and childcare professionals interact with the child and organize his/her environment according to their expectations about his/her development and their own role in this process. these expectations are built through their life experiences in their particular culture. many expectations, beliefs and psychological theories have, thus, a strong self-fulfilling power, helping to build competencies and deficiencies. children and the professional staff of child education institutions have undoubtedly much to gain from reflecting on these questions.

Abstract: Estudou-se a influência da aplica o de somatotropina bovina recombinante sobre a produ o e composi o do leite, os metabólicos sangüíneos e a concentra o hormonal em cabras no ter o médio da lacta o. Foram utilizadas 24 cabras da ra a Toggenburg, divididas em dois tratamentos: T1 (n=12): aplica o de 250 mg de r-bST a cada 14 dias, em um total de quatro aplica es; e T2 (n=12): aplica o de solu o salina (controle). O tratamento com r-bST n o aumentou a produ o de leite e n o influenciou os teores de gordura, proteína e extrato seco. A porcentagem de lactose no leite foi maior (4,47 ? 0,2 para T1 versus 4,34 ? 0,2% para T2) e a contagem de células somáticas menor nos animais tratados em rela o aos controle (681,1 ? 689,9 para T1 versus 1.001,84 ? 610,9 [x103 células/mL] para T2). A administra o de r-bST aumentou as concentra es séricas de ácidos graxos n o-esterificados de T2 (309,67 ? 169,62 x 247,34 ? 126,38 mEq/L, para T1 e T2, respectivamente) e reduziu as concentra es de uréia (86,84 ? 33,81 x 121,16 ? 42,57 mg/dL, para T1 e T2 respectivamente). A r-bST reduziu as concentra es de colesterol total e HDL (82,46 ? 19,25 x 89,29 ? 23,66 mg/dL e 155,95 ? 19,67 x 177,67 ? 32,79 mg/dL, para T1 e T2 respectivamente), enquanto as concentra es de albumina, glicose, proteínas totais, beta-hidroxibutirato e tiroxina n o foram influenciadas pela r-bST, que também n o influenciou o peso e o escore corporal dos animais. A r-bST aumentou os teores de lactose, reduziu a contagem de células somáticas e promoveu altera es nos metabólicos sangüíneos e no leite de cabras lactantes.

Abstract: Introduction: Leishmaniasis is classified into three clinical presentations: visceral, coetaneous and mucocutaneous. The latter is usually secondary to hematogenous spread after months or years of skin infection and can manifest as infiltrative lesions, ulcerated or vegetating in nose, pharynx, larynx and mouth, associated or not with ganglionics infarction. Laryngeal involvement is part of the differential diagnosis of lesions in this topography as nonspecific chronic laryngitis, granulomatosis and even tumors of the upper aerodigestive tract presenting atypical evolution. Sometimes it is difficult for the correct diagnosis of Leishmaniasis, with description of cases in the literature were conducted improperly. Objective: The objective of this study is to report a case of laryngeal Leishmaniasis addressing the difficulty of diagnosis, complications and treatment applied. Case Report: A patient with pain throat, dysphagia, odynophagia, dysphonia and weight loss, with no improvement with symptomatic medication. At telelaringoscopy, infiltrative lesion showed nodular supraglottis. He underwent a tracheotomy for airway obstruction and biopsy with immunohistochemical study for a definitive diagnosis of laryngeal Leishmaniasis. The patient was referred to the infectious diseases that initiated treatment with N-methylglucamine antimoniate with satisfactory response to therapy. Final Comments: Faced with a clinical suspicion of granulomatous diseases, it is essential to follow protocol laboratory evaluation associated with histological injury, to get a precise definition etiological without prolonging the time of diagnosis. Medical treatment for mucosal Leishmaniasis, recommended by the World Health Organization, was adequate in the case of laryngeal disorders, with complete resolution of symptoms.
