We reported previously that treatment of dogs naturally infected with Leishmania infantum with meglumine antimoniate (MA) encapsulated in conventional liposomes (LC), in association with allopurinol, promoted marked parasite load reductions in the main infection sites. Here, a new assay in naturally infected dogs was performed using a novel liposome formulation of MA consisting of a mixture of conventional and long-circulating (PEGylated) liposomes (LCP), with expected broader distribution among affected tissues of the mononucler phagocyte system....

Cataloging Accreted Stars within Gaia DR2 Using Deep Learning

Bryan Ostdiek, Lina Necib, Timothy Cohen, Marat Freytsis, Mariangela Lisanti, Shea Garrison-Kimmel, Andrew Wetzel, Robyn E Sanderson & Philip F Hopkins
In [1907.06652], a neural network is used to determine whether a star was accreted onto the Milky Way or was born in situ using only 5D phase space information. The inputs to the network are [l, b, parallax, pmra, pmdec] from the Gaia DR2 catalog. Stars with a score greater than 0.75 are marked as accreted. The subset of stars with 6D phase space information was studied in more detail in [1907.07190] and [1907.07681]. In...

We verified collective agreements...

Changes in sugar contents and invertase activity during low temperature storage of various chipping potato cultivars

Adnan AMJAD, Muhammad Sameem JAVED, , Majid HUSSAIN & Amir ISMAIL
Abstract Storage of tubers is vital for uninterrupted supply to potato chips/fries industry. Cold storage is preferred to maintain tuber quality. However, prolonged storage at low temperature results in cold induced sweetening (CIS) leading to sugar accumulation and browning of chips. Slowing down the CIS is of economic importance for potato industry. Screening of potatoes after cold storage for low sugar and invertase activity with exploration of best frying color was the aim of current...

Bioactive compounds and value-added applications of cupuassu (Theobroma grandiflorum Schum.) agroindustrial by-product

, , Suzana Caetano Da Silva LANNES, Alessandro Alberto CASAZZA, Bahar ALIAKBARIAN, Patrizia PEREGO, , Attilio CONVERTI & José Otávio Carréra SILVA JÚNIOR
Abstract Cupuassu is a fruitful species from the Amazon basin with great economical potential, due to the multiple uses of its pulp and seeds in the food and cosmetic industries. This fruit generates large amounts of solid waste, which, despite of its high content of bioactive compounds, is discarded in the environment. Therefore, with the aim of reusing these wastes and adding economic value, we investigated the nutritional potential of the seed by-product resulting from...

Luciana Ferreira, José Luiz Lopes Vieira, , Pamela Norraila Da Silva, , Priscila Caçola & Raquel Nichele De Chaves
Abstract This study aimed to (1) create percentile curves and norms for the eight subtests of the Bruininks-Oseretsky Test of Motor Proficiency, 2nd edition (BOT-2) for 6- to 10-year-old Brazilian children and to (2) compare them to the values of the original test manual. To that, we tested a sample of 931 Brazilian children (477 girls, 454 boys) with ages between 6 to 10 with the BOT-2 assessment. The LMS method was used to generate...

Staple food crops from Brazilian Biofortification Program have high protein quality and hypoglycemic action in Wistar rats

, Mariana Juste Contin GOMES, Maria Eliza De Castro MOREIRA, Dorina NATAL, Roberta Ribeiro SILVA, , Sérgio Luis Da MATTA, Helena Maria Pinheiro SANT’ANA &
Abstract Biofortified staple food crops have become an effective tool by which to address micronutrient deficiencies in many at-risk populations. The effect of these food crops on the micronutrient status has been evaluated, however there is no studies investigating their protein quality, neither by themselves or in a food combination. Thus, this study investigated the effect of combinations of beans and rice, target for biofortification, with high carotenoids content crops (sweet potato and pumpkin) on...

Acute effect of intra-set static stretching on antagonists versus passive interval on the performance of maximum repetitions of agonists in leg extension machine

Priscila Alves De Souza, Diego Rodrigues Teixeira, Jaime Della Corte, Camila Aparecida De Souza Batista, Humberto Lameira Miranda & Gabriel Andrade Paz
Abstract The aim of this study was to investigate the acute effect of intra-set antagonist static stretching (hamstrings) on the performance of maximum repetitions of knee extensors adopting muscle endurance training zone. The sample consisted of 15 healthy male volunteers with experience in strength training (23.7 ± 4.3 years, 81.9 ± 15.0 kg, 1.8 ± 0.1 m). Two experimental protocols were conducted: protocol without static stretching (PT) and antagonist stretching protocol (PAA) in the knee...

Clinical studies using stem cells for treatment of retinal diseases: state of the art

Carina Costa Cotrim, Rodrigo Jorge, Maria Carolina De Oliveira, Fabiano Pieroni, André M. Vieira Messias & Rubens Camargo Siqueira
ABSTRACT Degenerative retinal diseases such as retinitis pigmentosa, Stargardt’s macular dystrophy, and age-related macular degeneration are characterized by irreversible loss of vision due to direct or indirect photoreceptor damage. No effective treatments exist, but stem cell studies have shown promising results. Our aim with this review was to describe the types of stem cells that are under study, their effects, and the main clinical trials involving them.

Biological control in the germination of seeds from two species native of the Cerrado region

Abstract Microorganisms have been efficiently used for the biological control of phytopathogens through the production of antimicrobial substances. However, the objectives of this work were: to study the germination of Butia purpurascens Glassman and Butia archeri Glassman seeds in different substrates, to select and identify the endophytic and rhizospheric bacterial isolates of B. purpurascens and B. archeri, and to perform antibiosis tests based on the isolated microorganisms of these tree species. No difference was found...

Classification of plastic surgery malpractice complaints brought before the São Paulo Medical Board that were treated as professional-misconduct cases: a cross-sectional study

Paulo Cézar Mariani, & Rui Nunes
ABSTRACT BACKGROUND: Nowadays, there is an ethical and moral necessity to establish rules that govern professional attitudes and conduct. In the medical field, these rules are multifaceted, given the health consequences inherent to medical procedures. Ethics is an even more delicate subject when it comes to plastic surgery, since one of the aims of this particular medical specialty is esthetic improvement of the body. OBJECTIVE: To survey and classify São Paulo State Medical Board investigations...

Neutron diffraction for non-destructive evaluation of composition and microstructure in highly heterogeneous ancient steel from Mongolia

, &
Recent analytical research on ancient metal objects recovered in Mongolia revealed that the early bronze and iron-making technologies can be clearly differentiated from those practiced in contemporaneous China. The nomadic life style of Mongolian population was not compatible with the production of large size artistic artefacts, typical of urban centres, therefore they developed a tradition of production of high quality transportable small size artistic objects.Iron artefacts recovered in Mongolia often display evidence of small-scale engineering...

Do cardiolipins play a role for the mode of action of antimicrobial peptides? A study using free floating lipid model membranes

, , &
Antimicrobial peptides (AMPs), also called host defense peptides, are part of the innate immune system of essentially all species, from bacteria themselves to mammals to protect against bacterial pathogens. Although the exact microscopic mechanism(s) is still debated, this chemical structure allows them to target bacterial cell membranes which have net negative charge, selectively. One hypotheses of the mode of action is that AMPs interacts with cardiolipins (CL), and important anionic lipid present in bacterial membranes...

Unravelling the source of anomalously large spin Seebeck effect in Fe3O4:Pt bilayer thin films

, , &
The spin Seebeck effect is a newly discovered phenomenon that if harnessed, could result in a significant improvement of the efficiency of thermoelectric energy generators. Spin polarised neutron reflectivity, with the addition of the off-specular information provided by the OSMOND detector, will provide us with complementary measurements that enable determination of the spin polarisation of the film as well as surface morphology at the interface. This is especially important as the influence of the interface...
