OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to assess the specific features of attention impairment in patients with schizophrenia and the correlation between those features and the patients' clinical status. METHODS We administered the Conners Continuous Performance Test (CPT-II), with cognitive and clinical scales, to 40 Spanish inpatients with schizophrenia(More)
In this study, we developed a Phenotype MicroArray (PM) protocol to profile cellular phenotypes in Zymomonas mobilis, which included a standard set of nearly 2,000 assays for carbon, nitrogen, phosphorus and sulfur source utilization, nutrient stimulation, pH and osmotic stresses, and chemical sensitivities with 240 inhibitory chemicals. We observed two(More)
The emergence of resistance to available antimalarials requires the urgent development of new medicines. The recent disclosure of several thousand compounds active in vitro against the erythrocyte stage of Plasmodium falciparum has been a major breakthrough, though converting these hits into new medicines challenges current strategies. A new in vivo(More)
Glucose consumption is severely depressed in the ischemic core, whereas it is maintained or even increased in penumbral regions during ischemia. Conversely, glucose utilization is severely reduced early after reperfusion in spite that glucose and oxygen are available. Experimental studies suggest that glucose hypometabolism might be an early predictor of(More)
The present study deals with the stereological analysis of the changes in the seminiferous epithelium of rat testis, mediated either by cadmium alone or by cadmium plus zinc, chronically administered at low oral doses. Stereological estimates of both labeling indices of proliferative cell nuclear antigen and TUNEL-stained nuclei of spermatogonia, and of(More)
Introduction: Short and long-term exposure to maltreatment can increase the risk of developmental problems. Objective: To characterize a sample of children in early education with regard to the presence of indicators of child abuse and emotional and behavioural problems and to determine the association between these variables. Methods: The sample consisted(More)
Running Title: Glycolytic impairment after transient ischemia 2 ABSTRACT Reduced glucose utilization at early reperfusion following focal brain ischemia might be an early predictor of infarction, as suggested by studies with the autoradiographic radioactive deoxyglucose technique. This method does not allow following up the animals to examine later(More)
Giardia duodenalis is a parasite that colonises the intestines of humans and other vertebrates, causing diarrhoea and poor nutrient absorption. G. duodenalis is sometimes considered an early diverging eukaryote, and its genome exhibits simplified molecular machinery for many cellular processes, which makes it an interesting model to study. The spliceosome,(More)
emocionais e comportamentais e verificar a associação entre essas variáveis. Métodos: a amostra (n = 40) foi composta por todas as crianças do 1º ano de uma escola municipal cujos pais/responsáveis autorizaram, e seus respectivos professores (n = 6). Para a coleta de dados empregou-se o Inventário de Frases no Diagnóstico de Violência Doméstica contra(More)
