Activity-guided fractionation of the smooth muscle relaxing, chloroform-methanol (1:1) extract of Conyza filaginoides (D.C.) Hieron (Asteraceae) led to the isolation of three flavonoids (quercetin 3-glucoside, rutin, and pinostrobin), one sterol (alpha-spinasterol), a sesquiterpenoid (beta-caryophyllene 4,5-alpha-oxide), and two triterpenoids (erythrodiol(More)
Bioassay-guided fractionation of a crude extract of the stem bark of Buddleja cordata subsp. cordata with significant antimycobacterial activity led to the isolation of a mixture composed by ten new long-chain esters of 2[4'-hydroxyphenyl]-ethanol (1-10), along with the lichen metabolites methyl beta-orcinolcarboxylate (11) and beta-orcinolcarboxylate (12).(More)
Bioactivity-directed fractionation of a CHCl(3)-MeOH (1:1) extract prepared from the seeds of Rollinia mucosa led to the isolation of a mixture of eight novel tryptamine amides. Extensive HPLC allowed the isolation of the major component of the mixture, which was characterized as N-lignoceroyltryptamine (6) using a combination of spectroscopic and chemical(More)
No reports testing the efficacy of the use of the QT/RR ratio <1/2 for detecting a normal QTc interval were found in the literature. The objective of the present study was to determine if a QT/RR ratio < or =1/2 can be considered to be equal to the normal QTc and to compare the QT and QTc measured and calculated clinically and by a computerized(More)
PURPOSE To determine the type of cardiac disease causing left bundle branch block (LBBB) in Porto Alegre, Brazil, and to assess the role of associated left axis deviation (-30 degrees or more in the frontal plane) in order to identify a specific etiology of LBBB. METHODS Through reports from the assistant physicians or through examination of the patients,(More)
