This study was undertaken to determine if sympathetic nerve impulses modify lacrimal gland fluid (LGF) flow, which was continuously recorded from a cannula in the excretory duct of the lacrimal gland in rabbits anesthetized with pentobarbital sodium. The preganglionic trunk of the superior cervical ganglion was stimulated with electrical stimuli during… (More)
Candida albicans is the most frequently isolated yeast from the oral cavity of HIV/AIDS individuals. The use of fluconazole has increased the number of resistant or less-sensitive Candida species different than C. albicans. The purpose of this study was to identify the Candida species producing pseudomembranous candidiasis in patients suffering from AIDS,… (More)
We, herein, describe an HIV-positive patient with toxoplasmosis of the spinal cord. We also carried out a comprehensive literature review of this topic, with emphasis on the diagnostic tools and therapeutic approach. Case Report Toxoplasmosis of the spinal cord in an immunocompromised patient: case report and review of the literature. Toxoplasmosis of the… (More)
Monitoring and control of redox processes are key to operate wastewater chemical treatment plants at high-loading-rate whilst rejecting concentration and composition disturbances. Carbon dioxide concentration and oxidation-reduction potential (ORP) are selected as key inferential measurements of oxidation kinetics and oxidant reagent consumption. An… (More)

Both safety and economy of process plants are heavily dependent on the proper functioning of several thousand control loops regulating or optimizing unit and plant-wide performance over a wide range of operating conditions. In this work ordinal methods for analyzing controller´s error are proposed by focussing on merely comparing error values beyond a… (More)
