In this study, multiplex PCR was employed to investigate the virulence factors of Escherichia coli strains isolated from 60-day-old calves. Faecal samples were collected from 54 calves at 12 dairy farms in the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil. A total of 156 isolates were obtained after culture and microbiological isolation and were tested by multiplex PCR for(More)
Acute unilateral L5 pedicle fracture associated with a pre-existing contralateral spondylolysis is a rare lesion. We report a case in a non-competitive 12-year-old boy. We present the clinical, radiological and specific management of this rare condition. The clinical and radiological draft of this patient was reviewed. The follow-up was 30 months after(More)
Performance, rumen development, and metabolism of male Holstein calves (n=54) were evaluated according to 1 of 3 liquid feeding strategies: 4 L of milk replacer (MR)/d until 60 d old (4 L-60 d), 6L of MR/d until 29 d old and 4 L/d from 30 to 60 d (6L-29 d/4 L-60 d), or 6L of MR/day until 60 d old (60 d-6L). Water and starter were provided ad libitum.(More)
The aim of this study was to assess the epidemiological situation of bovine trypanosomiasis caused by Trypanosoma vivax in a dairy cattle herd from Igarapé, Minas Gerais state, Brazil. The herd was monitored from September 2007 to February 2009 by sampling blood for determination of packed cell volume (PCV), microhaematocrit centrifugation test of(More)
Restriction endonuclease patterns generated by Pulsed-Field Gel Electrophoresis (PFGE) were used to compare 96 strains of dairy propionibacteria originating from dairy products, international and industrial collections; endonucleases XbaI and SspI gave satisfactory restriction patterns. However, whereas XbaI can be used for Propionibacterium freudenreichii,(More)
In this work we present the SuperCopair package, which is a new way to integrate cloud computing into a collaborative live coding scenario with minimum efforts in the setup. is package, created in Coffee Script for Atom.io, is developed to interact with SuperCollider and provide opportunities for the crowd of online live coders to collaborate remotely on(More)
This work presents a comparison of running times for Java and C/C++ implementations of the FFT algorithm on Android devices. We compare a pure Java implementation with the widely used FFTW library in C/C++, considering also the possibility of multi-threading. 35 different devices were benchmarked, and results on specific combinations of device model and(More)
Bovine anaplasmosis is a disease caused by the intraerythrocytic rickettsia species Anaplasma marginale and results in great economic losses in tropical and subtropical regions. Vertical transmission is an important phenomenon that contributes to the persistence of different strains of the agent within the same herd. The identification of new strains and(More)
For several years, digitized small radiographs are used to measure Cobb angle in idiopathic scoliosis. The interobserver and intraobserver Cobb angle measurement variability associated with small radiographs were compared with measurement variability associated with the long-cassette radiographs. Twenty adolescent patients with a double major idiopathic(More)
