Revista de Saúde Pública , 2000,
Abstract: Pela primeira vez é registrada a presen a do Aedes albopictus em remanescentes de Mata Atlantica, localizada em área urbana em Recife (Pernambuco, Brasil). As coletas foram realizadas em isca humana e em criadouros de formas jovens (ocos de árvores, bambus, bromélias e pneu). A presen a de Ae. albopictus na regi o metropolitana do Recife representa um risco potencial do inter-relacionamento dessa espécie de mosquito com a popula o.

Abstract: this is the first report of the presence of aedes albopictus in the native rain forest, near the urban area of recife (state of pernambuco, brazil). adult female mosquitoes were collected using human bait. mosquitoes in aquatic stages were looked for in treeholes, bamboos, bromeliads and old tires. the existence of ae. albopictus in the metropolitan area of recife poses a potential risk for the interaction of this mosquito species with the urban human population.
Acute renal failure after massive honeybee stings
Daher, Elizabeth De Francesco;Silva Junior, Geraldo Bezerra da;Bezerra, Glaydcianne Pinheiro;Pontes, Lícia Borges;Martins, Alice Maria Costa;Guimar?es, José Ambrósio;
Revista do Instituto de Medicina Tropical de S?o Paulo , 2003, DOI: 10.1590/S0036-46652003000100010
Abstract: two clinical cases of patients who survived after numerous attacks of africanized bees (600 and 1500 bee stings, respectively) are reported. clinical manifestation was characterized by diffuse and widespread edema, a burning sensation in the skin, headache, weakness, dizziness, generalized paresthesia, somnolence and hypotension. acute renal failure developed and was attributed to hypotension, intravascular hemolysis, myoglobinuria due to rhabdomyolysis and probably to direct toxic effect of the massive quantity of injected venom. they were treated with antihistaminic, corticosteroids and fluid infusion. one of them had severe acute renal failure and dialysis was required. no clinical complication was observed during hospital stay and complete renal function recovery was observed in both patients. in conclusion, acute renal failure after bee stings is probably due to pigment nephropathy associated with hypovolemia. early recognition of this syndrome is crucial to the successful management of these patients.

Abstract: a situational diagnosis of the health services regarding the care of aged victims of accidents and violence (avav) was carried out in recife, pernambuco, brazil. the national policy for reducing accident and violence related morbidity and mortality and the national policy for the aged people health were used as references. the methodology was based on the triangulation method, with both quantitative and qualitative approaches. questionnaires and interviews were answered by managers and health staff of hospital, prehospital and rehabilitation services; and local aged health policy managers. in 2006, only the family health program reported prehospital care for avav, 31 cases were due to violence and 18 to accidents. the hospital care for aged people was 7,2% of the total care, 27% from accidents and 10% from violence. in the same year, there was no record of rehabilitation care of avav. the directives of the policies studied are only partially followed. the health care is deficient in several aspects, such as: clinical protocols; notification devices; support to the aged, caregivers and aggressors; and also continuous training. this analysis can be such a contribution to the reorganization of the local health system, recognizing the aged person as vulnerable to accidents and violence.

Abstract: the objective of this work was to verify the viability of using the sludge produced by esta??o de tratamento de esgoto do aeroporto internacional do rio de janeiro (etar-apoio), in the revegetation process of a degraded area located in this airport. the addition of such material to the soil increased significantly the organic matter contents, nitrogen, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium and calcium, as well as the cation exchange capacity (ph 7). the micronutrients fe, zn, and cu increased with the sewage sludge application. however, this behavior is not related to the soil ph decrease, but to the cec increment and to the organic matter increase. no significant sewage sludge effect was observed in the development of the species used (mimosa caesalpiniifolia - sabiá - and m. bimucronata - maricá). however, it was observed a significant interaction between the rates of sewage sludge application and the plants. those results have indicated that the revegetation process used was a feasible alternative to the final disposal of the sewage sludge.

PLOS ONE , 2013, DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0080421
Abstract: The aim of this study is to investigate renal markers and the biomarker MCP-1 in patients with schistosomiasis mansoni. This is a cross-sectional study with 85 patients aged 5 to 48 years, with a confirmed diagnosis of schistosomiasis mansoni through the Kato-Katz method. The patients were divided in three groups: control (G-I); infected by S. mansoni before treatment (G-II) and infected by S. mansoni after treatment (G-III). Renal function was evaluated by tubular and glomerular biomarkers and through urinary MCP-1. Patients’ mean age was 23.2±13 years. There was no statistically significant difference between the groups regarding tubular and glomerular function evaluated through the traditional biomarkers. MCP-1 was higher in G-II and G-III, when compared to G-I; p=0.009 and p=0.007, respectively. There was no difference when comparing groups G-II and G-III (p=0.892). Although it was not different among the groups, there was a significant correlation between albuminuria and MCP-1. There was a significant increase in urinary MCP-1 levels in patients with schistosomiasis mansoni, which was associated with albuminuria. This protein has a role in the recruitment of monocytes to injury and inflammation sites . The increase of MCP-1 in the urine evidences that there is silent renal inflammation in these patients and the inflammatory status is not interrupted by specific treatment of the offending agent. Our findings suggest that urinary MCP-1 can be a sensitive marker of renal injury in patients with schistosomiasis mansoni.
Does the presence of weeds affect Bemisia tabaci (Gennadius) (Hemiptera: Aleyrodidae) infestation on tomato plants in a semi-arid agro-ecosystem?

Abstract: integrated bemisia tabaci (gennadius) management requires quantitative knowledge on the mechanisms of persistence of pest populations in non-commercial host plants. we investigated b. tabaci oviposition preference among tomato and four weed species, and the insect population fluctuation under field conditions in the semi-arid region. at weekly intervals, we determined the level (number of eggs and nymphs per leaf) and the density of infestation (number of eggs and nymphs per leaf area) in all species. we observed an oviposition preference gradient among the species, with different degrees of attractiveness; acanthospermum hispidum was the most infested species whereas amaranthus deflexus was the least infested one. we also detected a significantly higher infestation on tomato when planted solely, which indicates a dilution effect on tomato infestation in the presence of weeds. weeds can act as important reservoirs for whiteflies and/or their natural enemies or even as viral sources for cultivated plants. their incorporation in integrated b. tabaci management programs depends on how those variables can be manoeuvred for the reduction of insect damage.
Tumores endócrinos associados às muta??es das proteínas Gsalfa e Gi2alfa

Arquivos Brasileiros de Endocrinologia & Metabologia , 2005, DOI: 10.1590/S0004-27302005000500019
Abstract: many oncogenic mutations promote tumor growth by inducing autonomous activity of proteins that normally transmit proliferative signal initiated by extracelular factors. g proteins are a family of guanine nucleotide binding proteins, which are structurally homologous and widely distributed in eukaryotic cells. they are composed of three different subunits (a, b e g). the a subunit, which contains the guanine nucleotide-binding site, is unique to each g protein. the g proteins couple an array of seven transmembrane receptors at the cell surface with a variety of intracellular effectors, which produce second messenger molecules. a subset of endocrine tumors, such as gh- or acth-secreting pituitary adenomas, functioning thyroid adenomas, adrenocortical and gonadal tumors were associated with somatic activating mutations in the highly conserved codons of the gs (arg201 and gln227) and gi (arg179 and gln205) proteins. these findings indicated that the g proteins play a role as oncogenes, contributing with the human endocrine tumorigenesis.

Online Brazilian Journal of Nursing , 2006,
Abstract: The human care as a conceptual mark is a theme not developed in the nursing researches. This constatation made the authors establish as objective of the documental research the analysis of the cientific production of a post-graduation course in the northeast about the theories and concepts related to care. The study was developed through bibliographic survey from studies conducted from 1998 to 2004,accounting abstracts from 150 dissertations and 52 Doctoral theses. The Sample, however, was composed of thirteen dissertations and nine theses selected according to the theme. The results showed that the care is a theme not well explored, because only 22 defenses were related to the subject. We concluded that it is relevant to conduct studies that evaluate the scientific production of post-graduation programs, so that we can identify difficulties and possible contributions, guaranteeing a better life quality in the production of nursing knowledge aiming at the humanization of the assistance given.

Abstract: bacillus spp. based larvides are increasingly replacing, with numerous advantages, chemical insecticides in programmes for controlling black fly and mosquito populations. brazil was among the pioneers in adopting bacillus thuringiensis israelensis (b.t.i) to control black flies. however, the major current mosquito control programme in brazil, the programme for eradication of aedes aegypti launched in 1997, only recently decided to replace temephos by b.t.i based larvicides, in the state of rio de janeiro. in the last decade, works developed by research groups in brazilian institutions have generated a significant contribution to this subject through the isolation of b. sphaericus new strains, the development of new products and the implementation of field trials of bacillus efficacy against mosquito species under different environmental conditions.
