BACKGROUND Many animal models have been developed to study bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD). The preterm rabbit is a low-cost, easy-to-handle model, but it has a high mortality rate in response to the high oxygen concentrations used to induce lung injury. The aim of this study was to compare the mortality rates of two models of hyperoxia-induced lung injury(More)
Background: The function of exogenous pulmonary surfactant depends of an adequate stability of its components, a highly complex mixture of lipids (mainly phospholipids) and two hydrophobic polypeptides, SP-B and SP-C. This composition could become instable with long time surfactant storage. The Butantan Institute (Brazil) produced a new porcine pulmonary(More)
An agent-based model was developed to assess the use of Genetically Modified Mosquitoes (GMMs) as a control strategy for the Malaria epidemic. Mosquitoes responsible for the transmission of Malaria (vectors) have been modified genetically so that the probability of transmitting the parasite causing the disease when biting a human being is reduced with(More)
