[Hmim][HSO4] ionic liquid (IL) and bio-renewable sources as chitosan (CHT) and chondroitin sulfate (CS) were used to yield hydrogel-based materials (CHT/CS). The use of IL to solubilize both polysaccharides was considered an innovative way based on "green chemistry" principle, aiming the production of CHT/CS blended systems. CHT/CS hydrogels were carried out in homogeneous medium from short dissolution times. The hydrogels were characterized and achieved with excellent stabilities (in the 1.2-10pH range), larger swelling capacities, as well as devoid of cytotoxicity towards the normal VERO and diseased HT29 cells...

PURPOSE: Management of patients with mitral stenosis (MS) depends heavily on the accurate quantification of mitral valve area (MVA) using echocardiography. All currently used two-dimensional (2D) methods have limitations. Estimation of MVA using the proximal isovelocity surface area (PISA) method with real time three-dimensional (3D) echocardiography may circumvent those limitations. We aimed to evaluate the accuracy of 3D direct measurement of PISA in the estimation of MVA. METHODS: Twenty-seven consecutive patients (median age of 63 years; 77...

OBJECTIVE: To analyze the determinants for the occurrence of human visceral leishmaniasis linked to the conditions of vulnerability. METHODS: This is an ecological study, whose spatial analysis unit was the Territorial Analysis Unit in Araguaína, State of Tocantins, Brazil, from 2007 to 2012. We have carried out an analysis of the sociodemographic and urban infrastructure situation of the municipality. Normalized primary indicators were calculated and used to construct the indicators of vulnerability of the social structure, household structure, and urban infrastructure...

To evaluate the impact of HPV immunization and possible changes in virus type-specific prevalence associated with cervical cancer, it is important to obtain baseline information based on socioeconomic, educational, and environmental characteristics in human populations. We describe these characteristics and the type-specific HPV distribution in 1,183 women diagnosed with cervical cancer in two Brazilian healthcare institutions located at the Southeastern (Rio de Janeiro/RJ) and the Amazonian (Belém/PA) regions...

AIMS: Three-vessel and left main coronary artery disease (CAD) have important prognostic implications. Consequently, numerous risk scores have been developed to stratify patients with complex CAD. The aim of the present study is to compare the predictive performance of six risk scores for occurrence of 4-year all-cause mortality. METHODS AND RESULTS: From March 2008 to December 2012, 348 consecutive patients with complex CAD undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention in a tertiary center in São Paulo, Brazil were analyzed...

We propose a technique to inscribe long period gratings (LPGs) in standard single-mode fibers (SSMFs). The proposed method uses a commercial CO<sub>2</sub> splicer that allows for the rotation of the fiber during laser irradiation, enabling a uniform exposure around the fiber. LPGs inscribed in SSMFs with different periods are presented. Gratings can be reproduced with a maximum difference between resonant wavelength values of less than 1 nm. Furthermore, it is possible to inscribe gratings with attenuation dips of -25  dB while at the same time obtaining polarization-dependent losses as low as 2 dB...

Microvascular dysfunction has been suggested to trigger adipose tissue dysfunction in obesity. This study investigates the hypothesis that glycation impairs microvascular architecture and expandability with an impact on insulin signalling. Animal models supplemented with methylglyoxal (MG), maintained with a high-fat diet (HFD) or both (HFDMG) were studied for periepididymal adipose (pEAT) tissue hypoxia and local and systemic insulin resistance. Dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (DCE-MRI) was used to quantify blood flow in vivo, showing MG-induced reduction of pEAT blood flow...

Introduction: Obesity refers to the accumulation of fatty tissues and it favors the occurrence of oxidative stress. Alternatives that can contribute to body weight reduction have been investigated in order to reduce the production of reactive oxygen species responsible for tissue damage. The aim of the current study was to assess whether the oxidant and antioxidant markers of obese women before and after bariatric surgery were able to reduce oxidative damage. Method: We have assessed 16 morbidly obese women five days before and 180 days after the surgery...

Irinotecan-based regimens are commonly used for treatment of colorectal cancer, which is limited by mucositis and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). Silymarin (SIL) prevents fatty liver disease in the clinical setting and in models of liver damage induced chemically. This study investigated the possible effect of SIL on irinotecan (IRI)-induced NASH. Swiss female mice were injected with saline (SAL 5ml/kg i.p.), IRI (50mg/kg i.p.), SIL (150mg/kg p.o.) or IRI (50mg/kg i.p.)+(SIL 1.5, 15 or 150mg/kg p.o.) thrice/week/7weeks...

The present study evaluated the origin and distribution of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and the organic matter (OM) in the surface sediment of the São Paulo River estuary, Todos os Santos Bay (TSB), Brazil. The samples were collected in the rainy (CP1) and the dry (CP2) seasons. We analyzed the 16 PAHs from the United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) priority pollutant list, total organic carbon (TOC), total nitrogen (N), and stable carbon isotope (δ(13)C). The total concentration of PAHs ranged from 11...

This paper aims to analyze the healthcare coordination by Primary Health Care (PHC), with the backdrop of building a Health Care Network (RAS) in a region in the state of São Paulo, Brazil. We conducted a case study with qualitative and quantitative approaches, proceeding to the triangulation of data between the perception of managers and experience of users. We drew analysis realms and variables from the three pillars of healthcare coordination - informational, clinical and administrative/organizational. Stroke was the tracer event chosen and therapeutic itineraries were conducted with users and questionnaires applied to the managers...

In this work we determine the linear and non-linear optical properties of a Fluoro-N-Acylhydrazide derivative (FBHZ), using a combined supermolecule approach and an iterative scheme of electrostatic polarization, where the atoms of neighbouring molecules are represented by point charges. Our results for non-linear optics (NLO) are comparable to those found experimentally, suggesting that FBHZ constitutes an attractive object for future studies and for use as an interesting material for third-order NLO applications...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study is to validate the current applicability of arteriovenous access banding in high flow access (HFA) and/or haemodialysis access-induced distal ischaemia (HAIDI). METHODS: This retrospective study was conducted at the GEV (Grupo de Estudos Vasculares) vascular access centre. The clinical records of consecutive patients undergoing banding for HAIDI and HFA symptoms, between June 2011 and January 2015, were reviewed until April 2015. All vascular access patients' consultation records and surgical notes were reviewed...
