Jornal Português de Gastrenterologia , 2012,
Abstract: Os autores descrevem um caso clínico de uma mulher de 46 anos, enviada à consulta de Medicina Interna, em 2005, por um quadro de diarreia crónica arrastada com cerca de 8 anos de evolu o, acompanhada de perda ponderal significativa já com estudo realizado inconclusivo. Entretanto iniciara episódios repetidos de lipotimia e incontinência de esfíncteres urinário e anal. Após estudo etiológico exaustivo, chegou-se ao diagnóstico de polineuropatia amiloidótica familiar confirmada pela pesquisa de muta o da proteína TTRMet30, tendo a doente sido submetida a transplante hepático. We report a case of a 46-year old woman with chronic diarrhoea for the previous eight years associated with significant weight loss. Subsequently the patient developed neurological symptoms with recurrent syncope events as well as urinary and anal incontinence. The diagnostic approach included a detailed clinical history and physical examination plus laboratory, endoscopic, radiology and neurological exams. A definitive diagnosis was made of familial amyloidotic polyneuropathy after confirmation of the specific protein mutation - TTRMet30- linked to this condition. The patient underwent successful liver transplantation.

Abstract: we present data on the pollen harvest by apismellifera l. at a central-western brazil site not yet studied. corbiculae pollen loads were collected during one year in front of the hive, acetolysed and slides mounted for optical microscopy. identification followed comparisons with a local pollen collection. forty-two pollen types were utilized by the bee; the most important families were myrtaceae, asteraceae, euphorbiaceae, brassicaceae and poaceae. the genus/species level ranking of relative importance showed eucalyptus (19%), raphanus raphanistrum (13%), poaceae type 2 (7.5%), jatropha cf. gossypiifolia (7%) and sapium glandulatum (6.5%). overall, the majority of pollen types (80%) were not abundantly harvested, and a minority (4%) reached values of 10%. given that the study area has cultivated plants and not natural vegetation, we indicate most of the identified species as manageable and point out that weedy vegetation can be an important food source for bees since it frequently occurred in the pollen spectra even within a totally cultivated area.

Abstract: (hybridization among wild passionflower species). passion fruits are appreciated for their ornamental value, since their flowers are showy and display a wide variety of colors. in addition, many hybrids have been produced and used in other countries. the genotypes used in selection of plants with ornamental characteristics are hybrid progenies which are used in various crossing strategies. thus, the aim of this work was to obtain interspecific hybrids, perform backcrossing and obtain progenies from crossings between hybrids, and to determine the reproductive compatibility between the progenitors involved. the percentage of fertilized flowers, germination, and the number of fruits, seeds and plants obtained through crossing were recorded. a series of 374 crossings involved seven species and two hybrids. crossings such as passiflora gibertii n. e. brown vs. p. kermesina link & otto and p. gibertii vs. p. alata curtis did not produce seeds. the largest percentage of fertilized flowers (86%) was recorded for the crossing p. gardneri mast.vs. p. cincinnata mast.; yet, the seeds produced did not show endosperm. interspecific hybrids were obtained from the crossings p. gardneri vs. p. alata, p. watsoniana mast.vs. p. alata, p. watsoniana vs. p. gardneri and p. gardneri vs. p. gibertii. seeds generated from backcrossings involving the hybrids p. sublanceolata (sin. p. palmeri var. sublanceolata (killip) j. m. macdougal) vs. p. foetida var. foetida l. (hd13-133 and hd13-141) and f2 reached high germination percentages.

Abstract: Background Plasmodium vivax is responsible for a significant proportion of malaria cases worldwide and is increasingly reported as a cause of severe disease. The objective of this study was to characterize severe vivax disease among children hospitalized in intensive care units (ICUs) in the Western Brazilian Amazon, and to identify risk factors associated with disease severity. Methods and Findings In this retrospective study, clinical records of 34 children, 0–14 years of age hospitalized in the 11 public pediatric and neonatal ICUs of the Manaus area, were reviewed. P. falciparum monoinfection or P. falciparum/P. vivax mixed infection was diagnosed by microscopy in 10 cases, while P. vivax monoinfection was confirmed in the remaining 24 cases. Two of the 24 patients with P. vivax monoinfection died. Respiratory distress, shock and severe anemia were the most frequent complications associated with P. vivax infection. Ninety-one children hospitalized with P. vivax monoinfections but not requiring ICU were consecutively recruited in a tertiary care hospital for infectious diseases to serve as a reference population (comparators). Male sex (p = 0.039), age less than five years (p = 0.028), parasitemia greater than 500/mm3 (p = 0.018), and the presence of any acute (p = 0.023) or chronic (p = 0.017) co-morbidity were independently associated with ICU admission. At least one of the WHO severity criteria for malaria (formerly validated for P. falciparum) was present in 23/24 (95.8%) of the patients admitted to the ICU and in 17/91 (18.7%) of controls, making these criteria a good predictor of ICU admission (p = 0.001). The only investigated criterion not associated with ICU admission was hyperbilirubinemia (p = 0.513)]. Conclusions Our study points to the importance of P. vivax-associated severe disease in children, causing 72.5% of the malaria admissions to pediatric ICUs. WHO severity criteria demonstrated good sensitivity in predicting severe P. vivax infection in this small case series.
Estimation of Tree Biomass, Carbon Stocks, and Error Propagation in Mecrusse Woodlands  [PDF]
Tarquinio Mateus Magalhes, Thomas Seifert
Open Journal of Forestry (OJF) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ojf.2015.54041
Abstract: We performed a biomass inventory using two-phase sampling to estimate biomass and carbon stocks for mecrusse woodlands and to quantify errors in the estimates. The first sampling phase involved measurement of auxiliary variables of living Androstachys johnsonii trees; in the second phase, we performed destructive biomass measurements on a randomly selected subset of trees from the first phase. The second-phase data were used to fit regression models to estimate below and aboveground biomass. These models were then applied to the first-phase data to estimate biomass stock. The estimated forest biomass and carbon stocks were 167.05 and 82.73 Mg·ha-1, respectively. The percent error resulting from plot selection and allometric equations for whole tree biomass stock was 4.55% and 1.53%, respectively, yielding a total error of 4.80%. Among individual variables in the first sampling phase, diameter at breast height (DBH) measurement was the largest source of error, and tree-height estimates contributed substantially to the error. Almost none of the error was attributable to plot variability. For the second sampling phase, DBH measurements were the largest source of error, followed by height measurements and stem-wood density estimates. Of the total error (as total variance) of the sampling process, 90% was attributed to plot selection and 10% to the allometric biomass model. The total error of our measurements was very low, which indicated that the two-phase sampling approach and sample size were effective for capturing and predicting biomass of this forest type.
