Reinfections with Trypanosoma cruzi in patients from endemic areas have been claimed to be an aggravation factor of cardiac manifestations in Chagas' disease. In the present study, the influence of triple infections with strains of different biodemes, on cardiac and skeletal muscle lesions was experimentally tested. Fifty eight mice chronically infected(More)

Morphological and chemical studies on the cuticle during the molt cycle of the crab Scylla serrata were performed in order to understand the layer formation. Cuticle ultrastructure was studied by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Energy-dispersive, X-ray diffraction, and X-ray fluorescence analysis were used for identification of the elements and phases(More)
In this article we investigate Multi-agent simulation as a way for modeling strategies for resource allocation problems in Public Safety. The goal is to show how simulation can be used to help law enforcement authorities to evaluate, in a controlled environment, different strategies for allocating and dispatching resources, aiming at reducing both response(More)
In this article we investigate Multi-agent simulation and Multi-objective Evolutionary Algorithms for optimizing resource allocation in Public Safety. We describe a tool that helps Law Enforcement authorities to evaluate, in a controlled environment, different strategies for allocating and dispatching resources, aiming at reducing conflicting goals such as(More)
