We present measurements of the branching fractions of the decays B+-->eta'K+ and B0-->eta'K0. For B0-->eta(')K(0)(S) we also measure the time-dependent CP-violation parameters S eta'(K(0)(S)) and C eta'(K(0)(S)), and for B+-->eta'K+ the time-integrated charge asymmetry A(ch). The data sample corresponds to 88.9 x 10(6) BB pairs produced by e(+)e(-)(More)
Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a progressive disease with chronic complications. Feet problems represent one of the most important complications. In a prospective study, we analyzed 298 species of bacteria isolated from 141 patients with community-acquired diabetic foot ulcers. The study was undertaken at a diabetic center and at the Federal University of Ceará,(More)
OBJECTIVE The prevalence of type 2 diabetes has shown a significant increase in parallel with health care costs. The objective of the Brazilian Study on Diabetes Costs (ESCUDI study) was to estimate direct and indirect costs of type 2 diabetes outpatient care in the Brazilian Public Health Care System. METHODS Data were collected from different levels of(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate whether exenatide administered before breakfast and dinner (BD) or before lunch and dinner (LD) provided similar glycemic control in Latin American patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) who consume a small breakfast. METHODS In this open-label, 2-arm study, patients taking metformin, sulfonylureas, and/or thiazolidinediones(More)
INTRODUCTION The efficacy and safety of taspoglutide, a long-acting human glucagon-like peptide-1 analog, were compared with sitagliptin or placebo, as adjunct to metformin, in patients with inadequately controlled type 2 diabetes. METHODS In this randomized, double-blind, double-dummy, parallel-group trial, patients were randomized to taspoglutide 10 mg(More)
AIMS To describe the prevalence of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) according to the 1998 WHO provisional recommendations and compare it to that found with previous 1985 WHO criteria. METHODS A total of 5564 consecutive women aged 20 years or more without diagnosis of diabetes mellitus outside of pregnancy in general prenatal care clinics of the(More)
We present an updated measurement of time-dependent CP-violating asymmetries in neutral B decays with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II asymmetric B Factory at SLAC. This result uses an additional sample of Upsilon(4S) decays collected in 2001, bringing the data available to 32 x 10(6) BB macro pairs. We select events in which one neutral B meson is fully(More)
The association of polymorphisms affecting lipid metabolism with the risk of myocardial infarction (MI) in type 2 diabetes mellitus was investigated. The Genetics, Outcomes and Lipids in type 2 Diabetes (GOLD) Study is a prospective, multicenter study, conducted on 990 patients presenting diabetes and MI (n=386), or diabetes without previous manifestation(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate associations between physical activity, comorbidity severity, depressive symptoms, and health-related quality of life in type 2 diabetes mellitus. SUBJECTS AND METHODS All individuals, 200 patients and 50 controls, aged from 40 to 60 years, were investigated by interview, and all variables were measured concurrently. Physical(More)
UNLABELLED BACKGROUND To determine the characteristics of clinical care offered to type 1 diabetic patients across the four distinct regions of Brazil, with geographic and contrasting socioeconomic differences. Glycemic control, prevalence of cardiovascular risk factors, screening for chronic complications and the frequency that the recommended treatment(More)
