OBJECTIVE To evaluate survival in patients with metastatic iliac nodal involvement from carcinoma of the penis. PATIENTS AND METHODS Thirteen patients with metastases to the iliac nodes were selected from 68 with squamous cell carcinoma of the penis who had undergone amputation and bilateral ilio-inguinal lymphadenectomy. The 1978 Tumour-Nodes-Metastasis(More)
BACKGROUND Many studies have tried to identify prognostic factors to guide the selection of patients at high risk for metastases in penile carcinoma. The authors evaluated human papillomavirus (HPV) status with respect to clinical features, incidence of metastases, and prognosis of penile carcinoma. METHODS Human papillomavirus DNA was detected using the(More)
A complete inactivation is observed after a 3 min pre-incubation at 70 degrees C with mitochondrial F0F1-ATPase complex depleted of the ATPase natural inhibitor protein (ammonium-Sephadex submitochondrial particles) and activated MgATP-submitochondrial particles (particles that after a 4 h-pre-incubation at 42 degrees C released the endogenous inhibitor(More)
Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) accounts for 95% of penile malignant neoplasms. A subtype of SCC, named warty carcinoma (WC), is a morphologically distinct verruciform tumor with features of human papillomavirus (HPV)-related lesions. Descriptions of the behavior and histologic features of this tumor are scarce in the literature. The aim of this report is to(More)
All mammal behaviors and functions exhibit synchronization with environmental rhythms. This is accomplished through an internal mechanism that generates and modulates biological rhythms. The circadian timing system, responsible for this process, is formed by connected neural structures. Pathways receive and transmit environmental cues to the central(More)
Introduction: the cardiorespiratory arrest (CRA) in neonates is rarely a sudden event. It is the result of progressive deterioration of respiratory and circulatory functions, leading to irreversible brain damage and death, if appropriate measures are not immediately taken by professionals with specific knowledge. Objective: to analyze the knowledge,(More)
In this paper we present some of the lessons learnt when using i* and Tropos in the SCORE 2009 competition (Student Contest on Software Engineering Contest). During the development of the BTW-UFPE Project we had to address several challenges, including: limitations of modeling notation, ensuring the quality of the intentional models, transition from(More)
