The purpose of this survey was to describe the occurrence of bovine mastitis caused by Prototheca  zopfii in Goiás State, Brazil. Samples of milk, environment and udder were taken from a herd of 120 Holstein cows. Sabourauds dextrose agar plates were incubated under aerobic conditions at 37 °C/96 h, for microbiological analysis. Somatic cell count and milk(More)
PURPOSE The usefulness of a single intraoperative application of mitomycin C was investigated in repeat dacryocystorhinostomy for membranous failure. METHODS Mitomycin C (0.3 mg/ml for 3 minutes) was topically applied to the fistula site in eight patients undergoing repeat dacryocystorhinostomy for membranous failure. RESULTS All patients remain(More)
PURPOSE To report a case of a respiratory epithelial-lined, air-filled orbital cyst as a late complication of orbital fracture repair. METHOD Case report. RESULTS Recurrent episodes of diplopia and hyperophthalmia developed secondary to pneumatic inflation of a respiratory epithelial-lined orbital cyst 6 months after orbital fracture repair. This cyst(More)
We have recently shown that conscious adrenalectomized rats exhibit nearly normal recovery of arterial blood pressure during the 5 h after hemorrhage. In those experiments, it appeared that a previous reduction in food intake might have compromised the recovery of blood pressure and increased mortality. These experiments were designed to test in conscious(More)
The spatial distribution of infant deaths in each zone of the city of Salvador, Brazil, in 1980 was examined and related to selected socioeconomic and health care variables. The spatial distribution of infant mortality (defined as the ratio of infant deaths to total deaths in Salvador) was uneven, ranging from 3.9% in a zone in the center of the old city(More)

A time saving algorithm for the Monte Carlo method of Metropolis is presented. The technique is tested with different potential models and number of particles. The coupling of the method with neighbor lists, linked lists, Ewald sum and reaction field techniques is also analyzed. It is shown that the proposed algorithm is particularly suitable for(More)
