Study Design Clinical measurement, cross-sectional. Background Investigations on the causes of patellar tendinopathy (PT) should consider impairments at the hip and foot/ankle since they are known to influence movement patterns and affect patellar tendon loading. Objectives To investigate, by means of CART analysis, impairments of the hip and foot/ankle that are associated with PT in volleyball and basketball athletes. Methods One-hundred and ninety athletes were assessed for impairments of the hip and foot/ankle including: shank-forefoot alignment (SFA), ankle dorsiflexion range of motion (DF ROM), iliotibial band flexibility, passive hip internal rotation (IR) ROM, and hip external rotator (ER) and hip abductor isometric strength...

Through yet-undefined mechanisms, the plant endoplasmic reticulum (ER) has a critical role in endocytosis. The plant ER establishes a close association with endosomes and contacts the plasma membrane (PM) at ER-PM contact sites (EPCSs) demarcated by the ER membrane-associated VAMP-associated-proteins (VAP). Here, we investigated two plant VAPs, VAP27-1 and VAP27-3, and found an interaction with clathrin and a requirement for the homeostasis of clathrin dynamics at endocytic membranes and endocytosis. We also demonstrated direct interaction of VAP27-proteins with phosphatidylinositol-phosphate lipids (PIPs) that populate endocytic membranes...

OBJECTIVE: The incidence of lung disease caused by nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) has been increasing worldwide. In Brazil, there are few studies about nontuberculous mycobacterial lung disease (NTMLD), and its prevalence is yet to be known. Our objective was to determine the specific etiology of the disease in the state of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, as well as the frequency and diversity of NTM species in our sample of patients. METHODS: This is a retrospective analysis of the medical records of patients diagnosed with NTMLD treated in a referral center located in the city of Porto Alegre, Brazil, between 2003 and 2013...

OBJECTIVES: Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension is one of the most prevalent forms of pulmonary hypertension and is a major complication of acute pulmonary embolism. One mainstay of chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension treatment is lifelong anticoagulation. The recent advent of direct oral anticoagulants for acute pulmonary embolism treatment has provided a viable and effective alternative for treating this condition. However, little is known about the efficacy of this new class of drugs for treating chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension...

In this work, we report the antileishmanial activity of twenty three compounds based on 2-pyrazyl and pyridylhydrazones derivatives. Compounds were tested against the promastigotes of Leishmania amazonensis and L. braziliensis, murine macrophages and intracellular L. amazonensis amastigotes. The most potent antileishmanial compound was selected to investigate its mechanism of action. Among the evaluated compounds, five derivatives (2b, 2c, 2s, 2u and 2v) exhibited significant activity against L. amazonensis amastigote forms, with IC50 values below 20 µM...

The impact of increases in drought frequency on the Amazon forest's composition, structure and functioning remain uncertain. We used a process- and individual-based ecosystem model (ED2) to quantify the forest's vulnerability to increased drought recurrence. We generated meteorologically realistic, drier-than-observed rainfall scenarios for two Amazon forest sites, Paracou (wetter) and Tapajós (drier), to evaluate the impacts of more frequent droughts on forest biomass, structure and composition. The wet site was insensitive to the tested scenarios, whereas at the dry site biomass declined when average rainfall reduction exceeded 15%, due to high mortality of large-sized evergreen trees...

Background: Propranolol (PPN) is a therapeutic option for the treatment of infantile hemangiomas. This study aimed at the development of nanoemulsion (NE) containing 1% PPN, characterization of the system, and safety studies based on ex vivo permeation, cytotoxicity, and biodistribution in vivo. Methods: The formulation was developed and characterized in relation to the droplet size, polydispersity index (PDI), pH, zeta potential, and electronic microscopy.

CONTEXT: Although men are commonly viewed as unaware, uninvolved and even obstructive regarding their partner's abortion access, those who accompany women to an abortion appointment may be more supportive. A better understanding of men's motivations could inform clinic policies regarding their involvement. METHODS: In 2015-2016, data were collected from male partners of women seeking an abortion at two clinics in a large Midwestern city. Twenty-nine interviews were conducted to explore how men wanted to be involved in the abortion and why they accompanied their partners...

Infections caused by fungi are prominent in our environment and can be potentially fatal. paracoccidioidomycosis (PCM), caused by fungi of the Paracoccidioides genus, is the most frequent systemic mycosis in Brazil and the main cause of death among immunocompetent individuals. The antifungal therapy for PCM is usually effective but side effects and relapses are often reported. The latter could be avoided with alternative or complementary therapies aimed at boosting the immune response to combat this pathogen...

The high tuberculosis (TB) incidence rates, the closeness of the cities and the high migration flux on the Brazil/Paraguay/Argentina border deserves an in-depth study, using Mycobacterial Interspersed Repetitive Unit (MIRU) and Spoligotyping genetic markers to explore the impact of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis RDRio lineage on disease transmission and resistance to anti-TB drugs in this setting. Although without the totality of M. tuberculosis isolates causing TB in this studied setting, a number of 97 isolates obtained from sputa samples culture of patients with confirmed TB, from 2013 to 2015, were submitted to 24 loci MIRU, Spoligotyping, detection of RDRio lineage and detection of mutation related to isoniazid and rifampicin resistance by MTBDRplus/DNA STRIP...

BACKGROUND: Arterial spin labeling (ASL) is an established magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technique that is finding broader applications in functional studies of the healthy and diseased brain. To promote improvement in cerebral blood flow (CBF) signal specificity, many algorithms and imaging procedures, such as subtraction methods, were proposed to eliminate or, at least, minimize noise sources. Therefore, this study addressed the main considerations of how CBF functional connectivity (FC) is changed, regarding resting brain network (RBN) identification and correlations between regions of interest (ROI), by different subtraction methods and removal of residual motion artifacts and global signal fluctuations (RMAGSF)...
