Carlos Kazuo Taguchi, élida Pinto Costa, Lucas Vieira Alves, Larissa Karoline Santos, Erbson Rodrigues de Oliveira Silva, Brenda Carla de Lima Araújo, Fabíola Andréa Andrade dos Santos, Allan Robert da Silva
Advances in Aging Research (AAR) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/aar.2018.76009
Abstract: Introduction: In elderly, the progressive degenerations in the nervous system and vestibular system compromise the human body balance leading to a greater risk of falls. The Dynamic Gait Index is a protocol that predicts risks to falls in seniors. Objective: To analyze the results of the application of the Dynamic Gait Index (DGI)-Brazilian brief proposal and establish correlation with the original version. Methods: Study approved by the Ethics and Research Committee of Federal University of Sergipe (number 0197.0.107000.09). We analyzed 223 files of socially active elderly, female gender, aged ranged 60 to 85 years, mean 68.54 (±7.61) years since 2014. The volunteers were evaluated by the DGI-Brazil. For the statistical analysis, the Pearson Correlation Momentum Correlation Test with Spearman Correlation was used, with p ≤ 0.05 and r = 1.0. Results: Sixty-three (27.8%) of the volunteers presented an altered DGI scores. The statistical analysis indicated that Task 1 and Task 2 did not contribute to decrease the total score in the test. The worst performances occurred in Tasks 3, 5 and 6. There was founded a positive correlation between Tasks 1 and 2; 1 and 8; 3 and 4; 3 and 5; 4 and 5; 2 and 4; 2 and 7. Negative correlation occurred between Tasks 4 and 8, and 6 was not correlated with another Task. Conclusion: The DGI-Brazilian brief version presented an excellent correlation with the original proposal and may be useful in clinical practice as a tool to evidence future risks of falls in the elderly people.

Arquivos de Neuro-Psiquiatria , 2000,
Abstract: Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva is a rare genetic disease characterized by widespread soft tissue ossification and congenital stigmata of the extremities. We report on a male child followed for ten years since the age of 3 years and 9 months, when the diagnosis was made. He was born with bilateral hypoplasic hallux valgus and ventricular septal defect, corrected by transsternal approach when 32 months old. Restriction of neck mobility followed and foci of ectopic ossification appeared. Four crises of disease exacerbation were treated with oral prednisone and/or other antiinflammatory drugs. Sodium etidronate 5 to 10 mg/kg/day was prescribed intermittently during about six years but was discontinued due to osteopenia. The disease course has been relentless, with severe movement restriction including the chest wall. A review showed few similar case reports in the Brazilian literature. We revisit the criteria for diagnosis and the essentials of management and treatment.

Agricultural Sciences (AS) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/as.2015.63030
Abstract:

This study investigated the protective effects of secondary bacterial metabolites, produced by Pseudomonas sp. (bacterium strain LN), on citrus canker disease caused by Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. citri (Xac 306). The LN bacteria strain was cultured in liquid medium and the supernatant free-cells was treated with methanol (AMF) and ethyl acetate (AEF), respectively, and then the extract was concentrated, filtrated, lyophilized and fractionated by vacuum liquid chromatography (VLC). After VLC, eight fractions were obtained. All fractions’ activity against Xac 306 by agar well diffusion assay and minimum inhibitory concentration but in different concentrationswere tested. Cytotoxicity effects were observed in all fractions in 50 μg·mL-1 concentration. The comet assay demonstrated that the fractions EAF, VLC2 and VLC3 presented no genotoxic effects at tested concentrations. In plants only VLC3 showed significant results (p<0.05), reducing the incidence of citrus canker lesions.

Australian Journal of Crop Science , 2008,
Abstract: The experiment had the aimed at evaluating the effects of the progressive water deficit, as well as investigating the physiological and biochemical behavior in Glycine max cv. Sambaiba submitted to water restriction during the vegetative phase. The parameters that were measured are the leaf relative water content, plant dry matter, proline, total soluble carbohydrate, sucrose, reducing carbohydrates, free amino acids and total soluble proteins. The experimental design carried out was at entirely randomized factorial scheme, with 2 water regimes (stress and control) and 4 evaluation points (0, 2, 4 and 6 days). There was decrease in the leaf relative water content in plants under water deficit, however the total soluble carbohydrates, sucrose and reducing carbohydrates were increased at 40, 205.0, 19.2%, respectively, besides the accumulation of proline and free amino acids at 67 and 388.1%, respectively. Significant changes were shown on leaf relative water content, total soluble carbohydrates, sucrose and reducing carbohydrates with 2 days under water stress, indicating that the carbon metabolism is quickly modified and utilized as reserve source and membrane protector during the water deficit. Besides of this, the increase in free amino acids level occurred due to protein breakdown as consequence of the stress submitted to plants, however significant changes were not observed on the proline levels until the 4th day of water restriction. This fact reveals the inefficient osmotic adjustment and as consequence the high sensitivity of this species under conditions of water restriction.

Abstract:

The present work sought to characterize the cyanogenic glycoside dhurrin in five sugarcane varieties and to determine its possible relationship with the formation of ethyl carbamate in cachaca. For each variety, methanol, ethyl acetate and hexane extracts were prepared and submitted to thin layer chromatography. Chromatographic spots were revealed with iodine vapors. The physical and chemical parameters of the spirits produced from the five different varieties of sugar cane and by different production processes were within the legal limits. Although not exceeding the limit for ethyl carbamate, a significant variation in the final concentration of this compound was observed for each sample analyzed. The Rf values for the dhurrin standard and for the sugarcane variety SP 83-2847 were equal, similar to those for SP 80-3280 and CTC 11 and different from the Rf values for the RB 86-7515 and IAC 86-2480 samples.
