Introducción: el entrenamiento mediante ejercicio físico moderado durante el periodo de gestación aporta beneficios tanto a la mujer embarazada como al feto. Los trabajos de investigación consultados vinculan la actividad física con una reducción del número de cesáreas, de partos instrumentados y con un parto más fisiológico. Previene igualmente la ganancia excesiva de peso de la mujer, disminuye el riesgo de diabetes gestacional y de hipertensión arterial.Objetivo: el objetivo de esta investigación es conocer si un programa de ejercicio físico de carácter moderado con el método Study Water Exercise Pregnant (SWEP), realizado en un medio acuático, contribuye a obtener unos resultados más favorables en la etapa perinatal, tanto para la mujer como para el bebé...

The contextual differences in the patterns of relations among various motivational, cognitive, and metacognitive components of self-regulated learning and performance in two key curriculum subject areas, language and mathematics, were examined in a sample of 263 Greek primary school children of fifth- and sixth-grade classrooms. Age and gender differences were also investigated. Students were asked to complete the Motivated Strategies for Learning Questionnaire (Pintrich & De Groot, 1990 ), which comprised five factors: (a) Self-efficacy, (b) Intrinsic Value, (c) Test Anxiety, (d) Cognitive Strategy Use, and (e) Self-regulation Strategies...

Pulmonary metastases from colorectal cancer present as systemic manifestation of the disease. As a general principle, the presence of metastases predispose to a poor prognosis. However, the application of some criteria of "operability" permitted the surgical resection resulting in prolonged survival (reported 5-year survival up to 50%), in better quality of life and in the cure of some patients. When the primary tumor site is controlled, and the metastatic disease is limited in lungs without extrapulmonary location (except for resectable or resected hepatic lesion) surgical removal is indicated...

Most Chinese characters are composed of a semantic radical on the left and a phonetic radical on the right. The semantic radical provides the semantic information; the phonetic radical provides information concerning the pronunciation of the whole character. The pseudo-characters in the study consisted of different sub-lexical parts of real Chinese characters and consequently they also had the semantic radical and the phonetic radical. But they were not readable and had no actual meaning. In order to investigate the spatiotemporal cortical activation patterns underlying the orthographic, phonological and semantic processing of Chinese characters, we used event-related brain potentials (ERPs) to explore the processing of Chinese characters and pseudo-characters when 14 healthy Chinese college students viewed the characters passively...

RESUMEN: El volumen Planeamiento Familiar y Programas de Poblacion es un libro indispensable tanto para demógrafos como para otras personas interesadas en el control de población. Tiene sus limitaciones dodo su caracter heterogéneo, su falta de autocrítica, el no tratar sobre la validez y confiabilidad de las encuestas de conocimientos, attitudes y prácticas (KAP), su injustificado tono optimista, y su fracaso al no explorar y considerar alternativas para las presunciones y premisas sobre las cuales se basan los actuates programas de planeamiento familiar...

RESUMEN: En los últimos quince años diez paises han inaugurado programas nacionales de planeamiento familiar: India, Pakistán, Corea del Sur, Taiwan, Turquía, Malasia, Ceilán, Túez, la República Arabe Unida, y Marruecos. Otros paises, incluyendo Tailandia, Hong Kong, Singapur, Kenya, Barbados, Trinidad y los Estados Unidos, apoyan y/o estimulan actividades de planeamiento familiar. En la mayor parte de los casos la razón fundamental del programa ha sido que si la tasa de crecimiento poblacional disminuyera, aumentaría la tasa de crecimiento económico...

Production of the antiphospholipid antibodies is usually associated with the development of antiphospholipid syndrome. The caracter of this syndrome is: venous and arterial thromboses, pregnancy loss, thrombocytopenia and some damages of blood-vessels. We have studies 150 pts with Systemic Lupus Erythematosis, 100 women with unknown for pregnancy loss and 36 pts with Sneddons Sy. Antikardiolipin antibodies were determined by the standard ELISA method, Lupus Anticoagulant by 4 phospholipid-depent coagulation test using the snake poison...

The pentadactyl scheme is common to all tetrapods, even in case of adaptative phenomenon (five digits are observed during ontogenesis), or in case of functional convergence The carpal organization with two rows is common too, if we take into account the desappearing of the central bones in mature man. The sellar shape of the trapeziometacarpal joint of the thumb, to often attributed to Man and his only thumb, is in fact the regular shape of all carpometacarpal articulations and present in very ancient primitive primate fossils...

Declared activity under first Soviet occupation - The first Soviet occupation of Lwów lasted since September 22nd 1939 till June 27th 1941. The population of the town consisted at the outbreak of the war in about 89 p.c. of Poles of Catholic and partly Jewish confession the remaining part consisting of 8 p.c. Ukrainians and of 3 p.c. Ruthenians. Basing on falsified results of voting in November 1939, the Top Council of Soviet Union incorporated Lwów into its Ukrainian Soviet Republic. In consequence of the formal ukrainization and real russification trend achieved by mass-immigration of Russians, the town has changed its external and ethnical caracter...

To test whether impaired glutathione redox status may be related to lens oxidative damage in humans, we measured glutathione (total and oxidised forms) and malondialdehyde, a lipid peroxidation product, in clear lenses and diabetic and non-diabetic cataracts. Diabetic cataracts were divided into 2 subgroups with either intact or abnormal haemo-ocular barrier as evaluated by preoperative iridography. Decreased total glutathione values were observed in cataractous (diabetic and non-diabetic) as compared to clear lenses (p < 0...

The patients here concerned had a faulty psychical development. During the caracter-building period of early childhood they were unable, to assert themselves sufficiently enough to be accepted, or to feel that they are loved. Therefore they tried by means of overcompensatory efforts in the sense of extreme adjustment to others, to make up for this lack. Increasingly confined, as a preponderant attitude they finally developed a forced "assistant" pose (W. Schwidder). Under these circumstances the personality of the patients could not develop sufficiently in the way, that they were able to make free decisions by maintaining legitimate interests of selfassertion...

In 3828 subjects (1489 males and 2339 females) apparently healthy was investigated the presence in the serum of Australia antigen and of corrispondent antibody with electrosyneresis, the activity of the G6PD eritrocytic and the eventual condition of carrier of microcytemic tare. An incidence of HBs Ag of 1.83% (2.75% in males and 1.24% in females) without any statistically important differences in the age groups and habitual residence and also the grade of G6PD eritrocytary activity was detected. A more elevated statistical incidence was observed among the carriers of thalassemic caracter never transfused...

The authors report the observation of two benign giant-cell tumours that developed in the cranium of Paget's disease patients. The two tumours were resected and cure was complete. Eighteen other cases of benign giant-cell tumours were found in the literature. All were discovered in relation to tumefaction occurring in an affected bone in a patient with generalized Paget's disease, often unrecognized. The tumours were usually unique although multiple tumours were found, with particular predilection for the bones of the cranium and the face...
