INTRODUCTION Apoptosis of neutrophils (polymorphonuclear neutrophils [PMNs]) may limit inflammatory injury in sepsis and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), but the relationship between the severity of sepsis and extent of PMN apoptosis and the effect of superimposed ARDS is unknown. The objective of this study was to correlate neutrophil apoptosis(More)
Adipose-derived stromal cells (ASCs) are usually isolated by digestion with collagenase. We have compared alternative methods to isolate ASCs in a more economically viable protocol. Nine protocols using red blood cells lysis buffer solution, trypsin, collagenase and centrifugation were compared; the isolation rate, cell viability, expansion rate,(More)
This paper presents a new methodology to estimate harmonic sources in a distribution network, based on measurements of limited number of given buses. The algorithm utilizes independent component analysis (ICA), a method of solving blind source separation theory. In this method, pseudo impedance matrix of distribution network is estimated. The location of(More)
The aim of this study was to verify the prevalence of bed-sharing and factors associated with this sleeping environment in an urban population in Southern Brazil. This was a cross-sectional nested cohort study with 233 mother-infant pairs selected at the maternity ward of the University Hospital in Porto Alegre.
