Cuiaba, Brazil

The Federal University of Mato Grosso was created in 1970. Located in the capital city of Cuiabá, it serves the entire state of Mato Grosso, Brazil. Teaching, research and extension programs are concentrated in 12 graduate programs, 63 undergraduate courses and a variable number of diploma courses in life, social and exact science. Nearly 20,000 students are formally enrolled. Its Medicine Faculty got, in 2007, the best average grade among Brazilian Medicine schools in the ENADE . Wikipedia.

The article discusses the appropriation of the theory developed by Habermas to analyze health policies and management. The fundamental concepts of the discursive theory of democracy as a deliberative policy, procedural democracy, the public sphere and civil society are analyzed. An attempt is made to demonstrate that the concepts of deliberative policies are grounded on basic theoretical categories of Habermas's conception of language, namely the theory of communicative action (TCA): lifeworld and system; communicative action and discourse; the ideal speech situation. The possibility of translating the categories presented in analytical categories, such as the experiences of social participation in deliberative forums and the results for the formulation and implementation of policies and health management is discussed. The conclusion drawn is that the theoretical categories reveal great explanatory potential and analytical categories are important provided that they are mediated and contextualized. Source

To analyze the effects of exposure to fine particulate matter from burning on hospital admissions due to respiratory diseases in children and the elderly. This is an ecological time series study that took place in the city of Cuiaba, Mato Grosso, in Brazil's Amazon Region, in 2005. Information on the daily levels of fine particulate matter PM2.5 was made available by the Brazilian National Institute for Spatial Research. The model included variables related to temperature, relative humidity and adjusts for seasonality and calendar effects. Poisson regression with generalized additive models was used. A 10 μg/m3 increase in the level of exposure to PM2.5 was associated with increases of 9.1%, 9.2% and 12.1% in hospital admissions due to respiratory diseases in children for moving averages of 1, 2 and 5 days, respectively. For the dry season, the level of exposure to particulate matter was associated with increases of 11.4%, 21.6% and 22.0% in hospital admissions in children for moving averages of 1, 5 and 6 days, respectively. No significant link was noticed in the elderly. The results show the influence of PM2.5 on hospitalizations for respiratory disease in children under 5 in the region studied. Source

The time evolution of the density fluctuation of a two-dimensional high-density ultrarelativistic-like electron gas is studied at the long wavelength and zero temperature limits. The model we consider is a reduced version of the relativistic Sawada model within the massless Dirac particles frame. Time correlation functions are exactly calculated through the recurrence relations method, and a dynamic equivalence between the ultrarelativistic-like and the nonrelativistic dense electron gas systems is stated by the present approach. © 2015, Jagellonian University.

Vitamin A and its derivatives, the retinoids, are micronutrient necessary for the human diet in order to maintain several cellular functions from human development to adulthood and also through aging. Furthermore, vitamin A and retinoids are utilized pharmacologically in the treatment of some diseases, as, for instance, dermatological disturbances and some types of cancer. In spite of being an essential micronutrient with clinical application, vitamin A exerts several toxic effects regarding redox environment and mitochondrial function. Moreover, decreased life quality and increased mortality rates among vitamin A supplements users have been reported. However, the exact mechanism by which vitamin A elicits its deleterious effects is not clear yet. In this review, the role of mitochondrial dysfunction in the mechanism of vitamin A-induced toxicity is discussed. Copyright © 2015 Marcos Roberto de Oliveira. Source

The monogamy of entanglement is generally discussed using a bipartite entanglement measure as an upper bound. Here we discuss a new kind of monogamous relation where the upper bound is given by a multipartite measure of entanglement, the generalized concurrence. We show a monogamous equality involving the multipartite concurrence, all the bipartite concurrences, and the genuine tripartite entanglement for pure three-qubit systems. The result extends to mixed states in an inequality involving the generalized concurrence and all the bipartite concurrences. We provide a counterexample showing that the result cannot be extended for systems with more than three qubits. © 2013 American Physical Society. Source
