For assessing the impact of chlorinated compounds, such as organochlorine pesticides, polychlorinated biphenyls, chlorotriazines (atrazine, simazine), and chlorinated phenylureas (diuron), on the Ponta Grossa lake South of Brazil, ten freshwater trahira fish (Hoplias malabaricus) were collected in October 2005. The contamination status was evaluated by the(More)
Catecholamines act as neurotransmitters and hormones. Studies conducted to understand the synthesis and metabolism of these monoamines during stress have been the main concern of many authors. This work proposes to investigate the time course of changes in epinephrine and norepinephrine concentration in adrenal gland obtained from rats submitted to acute(More)
A new IS-anionic stationary phase was synthesized to make on-line extraction of the ochratoxin A and B from samples of beer for HPLC. The propyltriethylammonium chloride stationary phase was characterized affecting it’s elementary determination and RI specter, respectively. Evaluation of the ISanionic column for the extraction and quantification of OTA and(More)
Objective. To evaluate the impact of citrus pulp on the palatability and digestibility of horse diets and the physicochemical characteristics of the feces. Materials and methods. The diets were composed of 60% of the energy from the forage and 40% from the concentrate, with increasing levels of citrus pulp. Two different tests were performed. The first test(More)
The importance of anti-reticulin antibodies (ARA)--R1 pattern--has been evaluated as a diagnostic and monitoring test for childhood coeliac disease. A prospective study was performed in 140 patients: 68 children with coeliac disease, 32 with miscellaneous diarrhoea, and 40 controls. An indirect immunofluorescent test was used for ARA screening. The indirect(More)
In the present research, assays were improved for the determination of catecholamines in adrenal gland. High-performance liquid chromatography with electrochemical detection was employed for quantitative analysis. The method involved direct injection of acid extract on to a serum albumin dimethylocadecyl-silane (HSA-C18) and the utilization of phosphate(More)
