BACKGROUND: Previous studies have demonstrated the occurrence of apoptosis in cardiomyocytes in different types of cardiovascular diseases. This report provides the first evidence for the presence of vascular apoptosis in myocardial infarction induced in rats by occluding the coronary artery for 7 weeks. METHODS AND RESULTS: Apoptosis was characterized by(More)

The objective was to evaluate the effect of tannery sludge vermicompost in the chemical properties of soil cultivated with tomato and irrigated with wastewater. The experimental design was completely randomized in a factorial 6 × 2, totaling twelve treatments with three replications. The treatments were: four tannery sludge vermicompost (25% Sludge(More)
Mosquitoes are vectors of arboviruses that can cause encephalitis and hemorrhagic fevers in humans. Aedes serratus ( Theobald), Aedes scapularis (Rondani) and Psorophora ferox (Von Humboldt) are potential vectors of arboviruses and are abundant in Vale do Ribeira, located in the Atlantic Forest in the southeast of the State of São Paulo, Brazil.

We propose an alternative to the Bak-Sneppen model for species survival. In our model the number of species is random. Births and deaths occur with constant probabilities and it is only the species with lowest fitness which is removed. We show that there is a sharp phase transition when the birth probability is larger than the death probability. The set of(More)
INTRODUCTION: Human parvovirus B19 (B19V) is associated with a wide range of clinical symptoms. An acute infection can lead to anemia, erythema infectiosum, or hydrops fetalis, as well as arthritis and other clinical manifestations. Among other diseases associated with B19V, several demyelinating disorders may occur as a result of B19V infection.(More)
