Food fortification may be carried out to improve the health status of consumers. In this study, peanut skins were added at 1.3, 1.8, and 2.5% to cookies to increase their polyphenol content. Insoluble fiber was increased by up to 52%. In addition, total phenolic content and the corresponding antioxidant capacities also increased as evidenced by increases of(More)
It was possible to isolate several strains of Micromonospora sp. from waters of Rio Reconquista. They all were filamentous bacteria with lateral spores, highly resistant to Cr(III) and another heavy metal cations. All these strains were able to grow on naphthalene-2-sulphonate as sole carbon source in a mineral medium. The biodegradation of the xenobiotic(More)
Derivatives of anionic surfactants, specially naphthalene sulphonates, when discharged into natural waters are accumulated in waters and sediments because of their poor biodegradability. A four-membered bacterial community, able to degrade the sodium salt of 2-naphthalene-sulphonic acid (2NS), was isolated from Río Reconquista. All the isolated strains(More)
A bacterial strain capable of growing on a commercial mixture of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) was isolated from PCBs-contaminated soil. The isolate was identified as a Klebsiella oxytoca strain, able to grow on 6-chloroquinoline and chlorobenzene. The above mentioned PCBs mixture contains several congeners of bi-, tri- and tetra-chloro biphenyls.(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the prevalence of caries and identify the associated factors among children aged 2 and 4 years in southern Chile. METHODS A cross-sectional study was conducted in a random sample of 2,987 children. Dental examinations were performed in all participating children and a self-administered survey was administered to their primary(More)

OBJECTIVE To identify and model changes in the cervical cancer mortality trend in Chile between 1990 and 2009 in order to contribute to the design of health policies on cervical cancer. METHODS The study analyzed deaths from cervical cancer in Chile between 1990 and 2009. The cases were identified by the codes ICD-9 180 and ICD-10 C-53. The population at(More)
