Human embryonic stem cells (hESC) hold great promise for the treatment of patients with many neurodegenerative diseases particularly those arising from cell loss or neural dysfunction including spinal cord injury. This study evaluates the therapeutic effects of transplanted hESC-derived oligodendrocyte progenitors (OPC) and/or motoneuron progenitors (MP) on(More)
The number of described species on the planet is about 1.9 million, with ca. 17,000 new species described annually, mostly from the tropics. However, taxonomy is usually described as a science in crisis, lacking manpower and funding, a politically acknowledged problem known as the Taxonomic Impediment. Using data from the Fauna Europaea database and the(More)
This article reports the geographical and host distribution of the flea Stenoponia tripectinata on the Canary Islands. S. tripectinata is widely distributed throughout the Mediterranean and North Africa as a parasite of Muridae rodents. To date, Gran Canaria is the only island of the archipelago where S. tripectinata had been found. In this report, S.(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate the effect of transcervical amnioinfusion on the management of labour and neonatal outcomes in preterm premature rupture of the membranes. STUDY DESIGN This clinical trial included 86 patients with premature rupture of the membranes between weeks 27 and 35 of gestation. Patients were randomly assigned to receive amnioinfusion via(More)
Biological invasions are one of the most alarming causes of ecosystem changes (CARLTON, 1987; CROOKS, 2002) and economic losses (PIMENTEL et al., 2000). Exotic species are capable of changing the structure, organization and function of the invaded ecosystems (SHEA; CHESSON, 2002). Nowadays, researchers are especially interested in evaluating the negative(More)
Abildgaardieae poses several taxonomic challenges, because there is no general agreement on its circumscription and infrageneric divisions. With the objective of providing data with taxonomic and phylogenetic value, the structures of the inflorescences of Abildgaardia, Bulbostylis, and Fimbristylis were analyzed following the methodology and terminology of(More)
Terrestrial environments surrounding aquatic resources are important and intensively used by semi-aquatic species. In the present work, terrestrial dispersal and nesting sites of the freshwater turtle Phrynops hilarii were analyzed in the floodplain of the Paraná River, using field data and variables obtained from remote sensing. A total of 112 turtles and(More)
