Different urban structures might affect the life history parameters of Aedes aegypti and, consequently, dengue transmission. Container productivity, probability of daily survival (PDS) and dispersal rates were estimated for mosquito populations in a high income neighbourhood of Rio de Janeiro. Results were contrasted with those previously found in a(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate density, parity rates, daily survival and longevity of natural populations of Culex quinquefasciatus in three neighborhoods with distinct socio-economic and infrastructure profiles. METHODS Mosquito collections of the Culex quinquefasciatus species were performed weekly during two four month periods, from August to November 2008(More)
BACKGROUND Increased cytokine and chemokine levels are associated with cardiovascular events in patients with non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndromes (ACS), but the incremental prognostic value of these inflammatory markers is not known. We determined if cytokine and chemokine assessment adds prognostic information to the GRACE Score in patients with ACS.(More)
BACKGROUND It is not known in what extent admission glucose improves risk stratification of the GRACE Score in patients with non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndromes (ACS). We tested the hypothesis that admission glucose adds relevant prognostic information to the GRACE Score. METHODS Consecutive patients admitted with ACS had plasma glucose(More)
Green Cloud Computing aims at a processing infrastructure that combines flexibility, quality of services, and reduced energy utilization. In order to achieve this objective, the management solution must regulate the internal settings to address the pressing issue of data center over-provisioning related to the need to match the peak demand. In this context,(More)

PURPOSE This paper aims to evaluate the effects of laser (660 nm) and light-emitting diode (LED) (670 nm) irradiation in the cheek pouch mucosa of hamsters with oral mucositis (OM) induced by chemotherapy (Che) with 5-fluorouracil (5-FU). MATERIALS AND METHODS In the preventive groups, the photobiomodulation was started 1 day before the drug(More)
BACKGROUND Although the TIMI score is the one most frequently used in acute coronary syndromes (ACS) without ST-segment elevation, the GRACE score has potential prognostic superiority, as it was created based on an observational registry, part of the variables is treated in a semi-quantitative form and renal function is taken into account in its(More)
