A telephone survey was carried out on the use of hypothermia as part of the management of unconscious patients following cardiac arrest admitted to United Kingdom (UK) intensive care units (ICUs). All 256 UK ICUs listed in the Critical Care Services Manual 2004 were contacted to determine how many units have implemented therapeutic hypothermia for(More)
Hydrazones 2a-d were prepared from diazotiazation of sulfanilamide or its derivatives followed by coupling with ethyl cyanoacetate. 3-Aminopyrazoles 3a-d were obtained by refluxing of 2a-d with hydrazine hydrate in ethanol. [Bis(-methylthio)methylene]malononitrile (4) was reacted with aminopyrazoles 3a-d in refluxing DMF containing triethylamine to yield(More)
Several sulfonamides containing pyrroles (2a-c, 6a-d, 8a-d), pyrrolo[2,3-d] pyrimidines (3a-c), acetanilides (11a-c) and tetrahydrobenzothiophenes (13a-c) were synthesized starting from N4-chloroacetylsulfanilamides (1a-d). The structures of synthesized compounds were elucidated by elemental analyses and spectral data. Compounds 2b, 3b, 6b, 8b and 8d(More)
Invasive fusariosis (IF) has been associated with a poor prognosis. Although recent series have reported improved outcomes, the definition of optimal treatments remains controversial. The objective of this study was to evaluate changes in the outcome of IF. We retrospectively analysed 233 cases of IF from 11 countries, comparing demographics, clinical(More)
CONTEXT AND OBJECTIVE Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) has been widely used for treating oncological and hematological diseases. Although HSCT has helped to improve patient survival, the risk of developing infection during hospitalization is an important cause of morbidity and mortality. This study aimed to analyze the infection profile during(More)
The reactivation of Herpes Simplex virus (HSV) occurs in 70% to 80% of patients submitted to autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT); it increases the severity of chemotherapy-induced mucositis. Therefore, the use of acyclovir in ASCT patients is considered standard practice. However, the minimum dose needed to prevent reactivation is a matter of(More)
A cases of myotubular myopathy in a 10 years old girl is reported. Clinically, palpebral ptosis, ocular movements limitation, facial diplegia, positivity of Gower's test, muscular hypotrophy distal, foot drop and deep absent reflexes were found. These signals were described by most of authors, besides symptoms referred, like partial urinary incontinency and(More)
BACKGROUND The epidemiology of and risk factors for invasive mold disease (IMD) among allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplant (HCT) recipients may vary according to the region. In this study, we sought to evaluate risk factors for IMD in our patient population. METHODS Between May 2007 and July 2009, all HCT recipients from 8 Brazilian centers were(More)
