The aim of study was to analyse fungi prevalence in three ontocenoses (vagina, oral cavity and anus) in women during procreation period, which should be helpful in developing prophylactic programmes for pregnant womem, newborns and infants infected with fungi. In 716 examined women (age 20-45 years), 1411 samples of appropriate biological materials were taken and inoculated in the fluid Sabouraud medium and then axenic fungi strains were isolated in Sabouraud agar. High fungi prevalence in three ontocenoses of examined women was noted...

The invention of roentgenphotography by Manoel de Abreu and its consequent widespread use in Brasil are described. Due to legal requirements, children, young people and pregnant womem are submitted repeatedly and, very often, to unnecessary examinations. After the atomic explosions of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and the knowledge that even minimum dosis of ionizing radiation can cause serious somatic and genetic risks, the widespread use of abreugraphy became cause of serious concern for Public Health workers, since its advantages are outnumbered by its cost and by the risk it offers to those submitted to this type of examination...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the incidence and identify the type of chromosome abnormalities in couples with spontaneous abortion. Also to observe the effect of balanced translocation on pregnancy outcome. METHODS: A total of 9258 cases of spontaneous abortion were studied. Lymphocyte culture and harvest were performed according to standard methods. Karyotypes were analyzed by G-banding in all cases and C- or N-banding in some cases in additions. RESULTS: The overall incidence of chromosomal abnormalities was 2...

A trial was undertaken to assess the effect of dextran 70 (Macrodex) in prophylaxis against thrombosis in womem over 65 years with fractures of the upper end of the femur. The dosage used was 500 ml at operation and 500 ml on the first postoperative day. At this dosage given at this time there was no difference in the overall incidence of clinically diagnosed deep venous thrombosis in the group of patients given dextran 70 compared with the control group. There was a tendency for thrombosis to occur earlier in the control group...

100 mg i.m. sulpiride (a dopamine-receptor-blocking drug) led to a significant rise in plasma TSH in normal womem, in female patients with galactorrhoea, and, to a much more marked degree, in male and female patients with primary hypothyroidism. In the hypothyroid patients, there was a significant positive correlation between basal TSH and its maximum increment after sulpiride. The drug proved to be an even more potent stimulator of PRL, at least in subjects with normal blood PRL. Normal males, on the other hand, displayed no significant changes in TSH after sulpiride...

Pharmacokinetics of norethindrone (NET) was evaluated in eleven women belonging to a low socio-economic group and in five womem belonging to the high socio-economic group after the administration of an oral dose of 0.35 mg NET minipill on an empty stomach. Blood samples were collected at different intervals of time over a period of 24 hours. Plasma NET was estimated by radioimmunoassay. In all women, peak levels of NET occurred within 1-2 hours and a semi-log plot of plasma NET levels showed a biexponential decline...
