The occurrence of different viruses in nasopharyngeal secretions from children less than 5 years old with acute respiratory infections (ARI) was investigated over a period of 4 years (1982-1985) in Rio de Janeiro. Of the viruses known to be associated with ARI, all but influenza C and parainfluenza types 1, 2 and 4 were found. Viruses were found more(More)
Adenovirus DNA was detected in cells from nasopharyngeal secretions of children with acute respiratory infections by in situ hybridization with biotinylated probes. The technique was easy to perform, giving rapid results which were well correlated with those of immunofluorescence assays of the same samples. Adenoviruses of subgroups B, C and E were detected(More)
BACKGROUND In contrast to influenza A, minor influenza B viruses can co-circulate with the dominant strain during an epidemic allowing the re-emergence of old strains and reassortment between those different strains. The 2001-2002 influenza season in the northern hemisphere was distinguished by the re-emergence of the Victoria-lineage viruses, which(More)
Current technologies have become a source of omnipresent electromagnetic pollution from generated electromagnetic fields and resulting electromagnetic radiation. In many cases this pollution is much stronger than any natural sources of electromagnetic fields or radiation. The harm caused by this pollution is still open to question since there is no clear(More)
Forty isolates of adenovirus type 7 were analized by restriction enzyme digestion with BamHI, SmaI, EcoRI and HindIII. These isolates were obtained from acute respiratory disease patients during the years 1980 to 1991. Only two genomic types were found: Ad7b and Ad7e, with Ad7b (87.5%) being more frequent than Ad7e (12.5%). The genomic type Ad7e appeared in(More)
Enteroviruses were investigated in respiratory secretions collected from patients with acute respiratory infections (ARI) over a seven year period (1985-1991), as part of a longitudinal study of ARI aetiology. All the viruses that are most commonly associated with ARI were found in this study. Among the virus isolates, enteroviruses were only less frequent(More)
One of the side effects of each electrical device work is the electromagnetic field generated near its workplace. All organisms, including humans, are exposed daily to the influence of different types of this field, characterized by various physical parameters. Therefore, it is important to accurately determine the effects of an electromagnetic field on the(More)
Body surface area (BSA) plays a key role in several medical fields, including cancer chemotherapy, transplantology, burn treatment and toxicology. BSA is often a major factor in the determination of the course of treatment and drug dosage. A series of formulae to simplify the process have been developed. Because easy-to-identify, yet general, body(More)
Certain results of numerical simulations obtained by the use of the spectral finite element method in time domain are presented by the authors. They were selected in order to show the effectiveness of the spectral finite element method for investigation of problems associated with propagation of guided elastic waves in a wind turbine laminated composite(More)
This paper presents an application of active thermography method for delamination detection in CFRP composite panel. The panel is a part of a AW139 helicopter fuselage. For this purpose a optical excitation was used. This method based on exciting the composite surface with a single pulse from halogen lamps. Transmission method was investigated that was(More)
