ABSTRACT

La pérdida de patrones de alimentación tradicionales a favor de otros más occidentales redunda en un descenso de calidad de la dieta alrededor del mundo. Muchos aspectos determinan la calidad dietética, aunque en general pueden resumirse en una dieta moderada, variada, equilibrada y adecuada para cada individuo. Estos aspectos son evaluados por el Diet Quality Index-International (DQI-I). Objetivo: Comparar la calidad de la dieta de población mexicana y española mediante un índice de calidad internacional de la dieta, determinando que factores son en mayor medida responsables de la pérdida de calidad. Material y métodos: Estudio observacional transversal sobre una muestra representativa de sujetos adultos residentes en Querétaro (México) y de sujetos de la misma franja de edad procedentes de la Región de Murcia, en la cuenca mediterránea española. Se recogieron datos sociodemográficos, antropométricos, de frecuencia de consumo de alimentos y de ingesta con 3 recuerdos de 24 horas y se valoró el DQI-I en la población. Resultados: Se encontraron diferencias para el gasto energético y el DQI-I en todos sus aspectos con valores de calidad superiores para la población mexicana. La variedad fue la dimensión más castigada para todos los sujetos, presentando los mexicanos mejores cifras de consumo de vegetales pero peores para las fuentes proteicas. Conclusiones: La muestra mexicana mejoró las cifras de calidad de la española, tal vez por una mayor influencia de conocimientos en nutrición. El 86% de la población podría mejorar sus puntajes de calidad en el DQI-I ajustando sus frecuencias de consumo de alimentos(AU)


The loss of traditional eating patterns in favour of more Western ones results in a decline in dietary quality around the world. Many aspects determine dietary quality, but in general they can be summarised as a moderate, varied, balanced diet suitable for each individual. These aspects are assessed by the Diet Quality Index-International (DQI-I). Objective: To compare the quality of the diet of the Mexican and Spanish populations using an international diet quality index, determining which factors are most responsible for the loss of quality. Material and methods: Cross-sectional observational study on a representative sample of adult subjects living in Querétaro (Mexico) and subjects of the same age group from the Region of Murcia, in the Spanish Mediterranean basin. Sociodemographic, anthropometric, food frequency consumption and intake data were collected with 3 24-hour recall and the DQI-I was assessed in the population. Results: Differences were found for energy expenditure and DQI-I in all aspects with higher quality values for the Mexican population. Variety was the most punished dimension for all subjects, with Mexicans presenting better figures for vegetable intake but worse for protein sources. Conclusions: The Mexican sample improved the quality figures of the Spanish sample, perhaps due to a greater influence of nutritional knowledge. Eighty-six percent of the population could improve their DQI-I quality scores by adjusting their food consumption frequencies(AU)

ABSTRACT

Avaliou-se a qualidade da alimentação de idosos longevos e sua relação com doenças crônicas não transmissíveis. Foi um estudo transversal, de base populacional, realizado em Viçosa, Minas Gerais, Brasil, o qual integra um projeto maior intitulado "Condições de saúde, nutrição e uso de medicamentos por idosos do município de Viçosa (MG): um inquérito de base populacional". As entrevistas com os idosos foram realizadas por meio de questionário semiestruturado, com a maioria das questões fechadas e pré-codificadas. Os dados do consumo alimentar foram obtidos por recordatório de ingestão habitual e a qualidade da dieta avaliada por meio do Índice de Alimentação Saudável Revisado (IAS-R), validado para a população brasileira. A amostra foi composta por 94 idosos longevos, a maioria do sexo feminino. Os mesmos apresentaram alta ingestão de sódio, baixa ingestão de cereais integrais e IAS-R = 62,22. Idosos diabéticos apresentaram maior ingestão de frutas totais, baixa ingestão de Gord_AA (açúcares, gorduras sólidas e álcool) e IAS-R total maior em comparação aos não diabéticos. As presenças de dislipidemia e hipertensão não alteraram o consumo de nenhum dos componentes. Os resultados indicaram a necessidade de adequação na ingestão alimentar. Assim, intervenções e orientações nutricionais específicas destinadas à promoção da saúde devem ser incentivadas.


The quality of the food of long-lived elderly and its relationship with non-communicable chronic diseases was evaluated. This a cross-sectional study with a population basis that was conducted in Viçosa, Minas Gerais, Brazil, which is part of a larger project entitled "Health, nutrition and drug use by older people in Viçosa (MG): a population-based survey". The interviews with the elderly was conducted through a semi-structured questionnaire, with most questions closed and pre-coded. Food intake data were obtained from the usual intake recall and the quality of the diet was assessed using the Revised Healthy Eating Index (HEI-R), validated for the Brazilian population. The sample consisted of 94 long-lived elderly, most of them female. They presented high sodium intake, low whole grains intake and HEI-R = 62.22. Diabetic older adults had higher total fruit intake, lower intake of Gord_AA (sugars, solid fats, and alcohol) and higher total HEI-R compared to non-diabetics. The presences of dyslipidemia and hypertension did not alter the consumption of any of the components. The results indicated the need for adequacy in food intake. Thus, specific nutritional interventions and guidelines for health promotion should be encouraged.

ABSTRACT

La mayoría de los estudios apoyan la tesis de que el desayuno es la comida más importante del día. Un desayuno adecuado contribuye a lograr un patrón dietético global saludable y a mejorar la calidad de la dieta. El objetivo de este estudio fue determinar los principales patrones de desayuno en tres poblaciones universitarias de España, Túnez y Estados Unidos, analizar sus semejanzas y diferencias y estudiar la influencia de factores antropométricos, sociodemográficos y de estilo de vida en la adherencia a cada patrón. Se realizó un estudio transversal con datos de 730 estudiantes matriculados en las Universidades de Castilla-La Mancha, Cartago e Internacional de Florida en 2013. El consumo de alimentos se obtuvo mediante dos recordatorios de 24 horas, no consecutivos, uno de ellos en fin de semana. Los patrones se identificaron mediante análisis factorial exploratorio. La adherencia de los estudiantes a cada patrón se evaluó usando las puntuaciones factoriales. Se obtuvieron cuatro patrones para cada país. El principal patrón de los universitarios españoles incluyó pan, tomate, sal y aceite de oliva (varianza explicada: 20,85%); el principal de los tunecinos contenía pan, mermelada, nata y mantequilla (varianza explicada: 12,73%) y el principal de los americanos incluyó huevos, leche entera y azúcares (varianza explicada: 10,77%). Género, peso, IMC o comer fuera de casa fueron factores que influyeron en la adherencia a diferentes patrones. El estudio mostró la coexistencia de patrones tradicionales con otros occidentalizados y modelos transicionales intermedios. No se determinó un patrón generalizable asociado a mejores resultados del IMC(AU)


Most studies support the conclusion that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. An adequate breakfast contributes to achieving a healthy global dietary pattern and improving quality of diet. The objective of this study was to determine the main breakfast patterns of three university populations from Spain, Tunisia, and The United States of America, analyze their similarities and differences, and study the impact of anthropometric, sociodemographic and lifestyle factors on the adherence to each pattern. A cross-sectional study was developed with data from 730 students enrolled at the University of Castilla-La Mancha, University of Carthage, and Florida International University, during 2013. Food consumption data were obtained by means of two non-consecutive 24-hour recalls including one weekend day. Exploratory factor analysis was conducted to identify breakfast patterns. Factor scores were used to assess students' adherence to each pattern. Four breakfast patterns were obtained for each country. The main pattern of the Spanish students included bread, tomato, salt, and olive oil (explained variance: 20.85%); the main model of the Tunisians included bread, jam, cream and butter (explained variance: 12.73%); and the first pattern of the Americans was characterized by eggs, whole milk and sugars (explained variance: 10.77%). Gender, weight, BMI or eating out of home were factors that influenced the adherence to different patterns. Breakfast patterns obtained in this work showed the coexistence of traditional models with westernized and transitional ones. It was not determined a generalizable pattern associated with better BMI results(AU)

ABSTRACT

Abstract Introduction Foreign body aspiration (FBA) is a potentially fatal paediatric emergency. Our objective was to highlight the importance of a multidisciplinary approach to difficult/doubtful diagnosis. Case report 34-month-old girl referred for urgent rigid bronchoscopy after suspected metallic blade ingestion (found chewing on it). She had a previous recurrent history of wheezing. The physical examination revealed face/lip wounds, traces of powder on her teeth but no breathing difficulty. The plain X-Ray revealed radiopaque images of the upper pulmonary field and gastric chamber. In the absence of FBA clinical signs but considering a previous history of bronchial hyperresponsiveness, a direct digital radiographic study was performed. There were no images compatible with foreign bodies: the results were interpreted as artefacts and no bronchoscopy was performed. Conclusions A careful pre-anaesthetic evaluation, a high level of suspicion and excellent multidisciplinary communication led to the recognition of false radiologic findings. A conservative approach was followed and invasive procedures in a remote location, with high anaesthetic risk for the paediatric population were avoided.


Resumen Introducción La aspiración de cuerpo extraño (ACE) es una emergencia pediátrica potencialmente fatal. La intención del presente artículo es resaltar la importancia de un abordaje multidisciplinario en caso de un diagnóstico difícil/dudoso. Reporte de caso Se trata de una paciente de 4 meses de edad remitida para broncoscopia rígida de urgencia, luego de la sospecha de ingestión de una hojilla metálica (se encontró a la bebé mordiéndola). La paciente tenía antecedentes de sibilancia. Al examen físico se encontraron heridas en la cara y los labios, rastros de polvo en los dientes, pero no había dificultad respiratoria. El examen de rayos-x mostraba imágenes radio opacas en el cuadrante superior derecho del pulmón y en la cámara gástrica. En virtud de la ausencia de signos clínicos de ACE en una paciente con antecedentes de hiperresponsividad bronquial, se realizó un estudio radiográfico digital. No hubo imágenes compatibles con cuerpos extraños: los resultados se interpretaron como artefactos y no se realizó la broncoscopia. Conclusiones Un cuidadoso examen pre-anestesia, el alto grado de sospecha y una excelente comunicación multidisciplinaria, permitieron el reconocimiento de hallazgos radiológicos falsos. Se siguió un abordaje conservador, evitando así procedimientos invasivos en lugares remotos con alto grado de riesgo para la población pediátrica.

ABSTRACT

Aiming to compare integrated crop, livestock (ICL) and forest (ICLF) systems in relation to ingestive behavior of dairy heifers, a 2 × 2 crossover trial was conducted with two periods and two systems. Eight Girolando (3/4holstein × 1/4 Gyr) heifers were evaluated in pasture of Xaraés palisade grass (Urochloa brizantha 'Xaraes' syn Brachiaria brizantha) managed with intermittent stocking. The ICLF systemhad eucalyptus trees planted in tiers with 65% crown cover. Ingestive behavior parameters were obtained using acoustic data collected with mP3 recorders for 48hours. Statistical analysis was performed using the mixed procedure of SAS, and means were compared using the Tukey-Kramer test at 5% significance. The dry mater intake (DMI), number of daily grazing sessions, and the duration of the grazing sessions did not differ (P<0.05) between systems. A higher (P<0.05) bite rate and total daily bites and lower (P<0.05) bite mass was observed in the ICLF system in relation to ICL. Heifers in shaded pasture change their ingestive behavior in comparison with those in full-sun pasture.(AU)


Com o objetivo de comparar sistemas de integração lavoura-pecuária (ILP) e lavoura-pecuária-floresta (ILPF) em relação ao comportamento ingestivo de novilhas leiteiras, conduziu-se um ensaio em delineamento crossover 2 × 2, com dois períodos e dois sistemas. Oito novilhas Girolando foram mantidas em pastagens de capim-xaraés (Urochloa brizantha 'Xaraes' syn Brachiaria brizantha) manejadas com lotação intermitente. No sistema ILPF, havia renques de eucalipto com 65% de cobertura de copa. O comportamento ingestivo foi avaliado pela análise de áudios coletados com gravadores de Mp3, durante 48 horas. As análises estatísticas foram realizadas utilizando-se Proc mixed SAS. As médias foram comparadas pelo teste Tukey-Kramer, ao nível de 5% de significância. A ingestão de matéria seca (IMS), o número de sessões de pastejo por dia e a duração das sessões de pastejo não diferiram (P<0,05) entre os sistemas. As maiores (P<0,05) médias de taxa de bocado e de número de bocados por dia e a menor (P<0,05) média de massa de bocado foram observadas no ILPF quando comparado ao ILP. Novilhas em pastagem sombreada alteram seu comportamento ingestivo quando comparadas àquelas que são mantidas em pastagem a pleno sol.(AU)

ABSTRACT

This study aimed to evaluate the productive performance, dry matter intake, apparent digestibility and ingestive behavior of feedlot calves fed corn silage from the feed out face of trench silos with different types of sealing. The animals were divided into three treatments with four repetitions: Conventional seal - double-sided polyethylene of 110µm thickness; Double-sided seal - double-sided polyethylene of 200µm thickness; and Double seal - composed of double face polyethylene with a thickness of 80µm superimposed on a polyamide translucent vacuum film with a thickness of 20µm. The use of double face sealing provided 12.63% increase in average daily gain and improved food conversion by 0.62 percentage points. The apparent digestibility of the diet with double-face sealing system silage was 4.30% higher than the diet with double-face sealing silage and 11.00% higher than the diet with conventional sealing silage. It is recommended to use the double face sealing with 200µm polyethylene and double face sealing with 80µm thick polyethylene on top of a 20µm thick polyamide translucent vacuum film.(AU)


Objetivou-se avaliar o desempenho produtivo, o consumo de matéria seca, a digestibilidade aparente e o comportamento ingestivo de novilhos confinados, alimentados com silagem de milho da porção inicial de silos do tipo trincheira, conservada sob distintos tipos de vedação. Os animais foram divididos em três tratamentos, com quatro repetições: vedação convencional - polietileno tipo dupla face, com espessura de 110µm; vedação dupla face - polietileno tipo dupla face, com espessura de 200µm; e dupla vedação - polietileno tipo dupla face, com espessura de 80µm sobreposto a um filme vácuo translúcido de poliamida, com espessura de 20µm. O uso da vedação dupla face proporcionou incremento de 12,63% no ganho de peso médio diário e melhorou em 0,62 ponto percentual a conversão alimentar. A digestibilidade aparente da dieta com silagem do sistema de vedação dupla face foi 4,30% superior em relação à dieta com silagem da dupla vedação e 11,00% superior à dieta com silagem da vedação convencional. Recomenda-se a utilização tanto da vedação dupla face com polietileno de 200µm quanto da dupla vedação com polietileno tipo dupla face, com espessura de 80µm, sobreposto a um filme vácuo translúcido de poliamida com espessura de 20µm.(AU)

ABSTRACT

Resumen La ingesta de cuerpos extraños es una entidad clínica común en el servicio de gastroenterología; la mayoría de veces estos pasan a través del tracto digestivo de manera espontánea y, en algunos casos, pueden presentar complicaciones como obstrucción o perforación. Es importante realizar un diagnóstico temprano con el fin de definir una terapia conservadora o quirúrgica inmediata. Se presenta el caso de una paciente de 67 años de edad que ingresó al servicio de urgencias por dolor abdominal de 16 días de evolución; como había sospecha de tumor gástrico sobreinfectado, se solicitó una endoscopia digestiva alta para la toma de biopsias, pero de forma sorpresiva se extrajo una espina de pescado de 3,5 cm sin complicaciones; posteriormente, se realizó el manejo del absceso gástrico con antibióticos por 14 días, con un buen desenlace clínico.


Abstract Foreign body ingestion is a common reason for consultation to the Gastroenterology Service. Most of these bodies pass through the digestive tract spontaneously and, in some cases, may cause complications such as obstruction or perforation. Early diagnosis is crucial to establish immediate conservative or surgical therapy. The following is the case of a 67-year-old patient admitted to the Emergency Department due to abdominal pain of 16 days of evolution. Since an over-infected gastric tumor was suspected, an upper gastrointestinal endoscopy was requested for biopsy. Strikingly, a 3.5cm fish bone was removed without complications. Gastric abscess was treated subsequently with antibiotics for 14 days, obtaining a good clinical outcome.

ABSTRACT

Introducción: La introducción de la alimentación complementaria es un importante momento en el crecimiento de un niño. Las guías alimentarias constituyen la traducción de los objetivos nutricionales en consejos prácticos y cobran un valor fundamental en las primeras etapas de la vida. Objetivos: Estimar el consumo de alimentos en menores de dos años de edad de la provincia Las Tunas. Métodos: Se realizó un estudio transversal, con muestreo aleatorio bietápico, en niños con edades entre 6 y 23 meses. El tamaño muestral fue de 495 niños. Se aplicó una encuesta de consumo de alimentos por recordatorio de 24 horas y se estimó la adecuación de las porciones de alimentos ingeridas según las recomendaciones de las guías alimentarias del menor de 2 años. Se calculó el índice de diversidad alimentaria. Resultados: La lactancia materna continuada al año de edad fue de un 34,5 por ciento en el grupo menor de un año y de un 10,6 por ciento en el grupo de 1 a 2 años. Se observó un bajo cumplimiento de consumo de las porciones de vegetales, frutas, grasas y huevo recomendadas en las guías alimentarias. El 84,5 por ciento de los menores de un año y el 42,1 por ciento de los de 1 a 2 años excedían el consumo diario recomendado de energía. Conclusiones: No se cumplen las porciones de alimentos recomendadas en las guías alimentarias para el logro de una alimentación saludable en menores de dos años. El alto porcentaje de niños con ingestas excesivas de energía constituye un factor predisponente a la obesidad desde las etapas tempranas de la vida(AU)


Introduction: The introduction of complementary feeding is an important moment in a child's growth. Food guides are the translation of nutritional goals into practical advice and take on fundamental value in the early stages of life. Objectives: Estimate food consumption in children under two years old in Las Tunas province. Methods: A cross-sectional study, with two-stage random sampling, was conducted in children aged from 6 to 23 months. The sample size was of 495 children. A food consumption by 24-hours reminder´s survey was applied and the adequacy of food portions ingested was estimated according to the recommendations of the children under 2 years´ food guides. The food diversity index was calculated. Results: Continued breastfeeding at 1 year of age was 34.5 percent in the group under one year and 10.6 percent in the 1 to 2 years group. Low consumption compliance with the portions of vegetables, fruits, fats and eggs recommended in food guides was observed. 84.5 percent of children under one-year-old and 42.1 percent of those in 1 to 2 years old exceeded the recommended daily energy consumption. Conclusions: The food portions recommended in the food guides for healthy eating in children under two years old are not met. The high percentage of children with excessive energy intakes is a factor that predispose to obesity in early stages of life(AU)

ABSTRACT

Introducción: La etiología de las enfermedades autoinmunes aún se desconoce, aunque se plantean diferentes causas. Objetivo: Describir el rol de factores como las hormonas, alimentación, estrés, enfermedades infecciosas y cáncer en las enfermedades autoinmunes. Métodos: Se realizó una revisión bibliográfica empleando Google Académico y artículos de libre acceso en la base de datos PubMed y SciELO, publicados entre enero del 2014 y junio del 2020. Se consultó la bibliografía nacional e internacional relevante y actualizada, con un total de 51 referencias, de estas, tres libros básicos de la especialidad de Inmunología y 48 artículos (12 en idioma español y 36 en inglés). Se utilizaron los términos de búsqueda según los descriptores del DeCS y MeSH. Resultados: Las hormonas femeninas incrementan el riesgo de las enfermedades autoinmunes. Un desbalance en la neurohormona melatonina puede generar linfocitos autorreactivos. El estrés puede mantener respuestas inflamatorias crónicas que causen daño tisular. Una adecuada alimentación permite que los comensales de la microbiota intestinal mantengan la homeostasis del sistema inmune. Las infecciones en ocasiones desarrollan respuestas autoinmunitarias. La causalidad entre el cáncer y la autoinmunidad es bidireccional producto de procesos inflamatorios. Conclusiones: Las enfermedades autoinmunes son más frecuentes en las mujeres. Una alimentación adecuada permite que la microbiota intestinal no se altere y que mantenga la homeostasis inmunológica. Situaciones de estrés e infecciones pueden iniciar respuestas autoinmunes. El cáncer puede favorecer el desarrollo de manifestaciones autoinmunes, y estas últimas por el predominio inflamatorio, favorecen la tumorogénesis(AU)


Introduction: The etiology of autoimmune diseases is still unknown, though several causes have been suggested. Objective: Describe the role of hormones, eating, stress, infectious diseases and cancer in immune diseases. Methods: A bibliographic review was conducted using Google Scholar and open access papers published in the databases Pubmed and SciELO from January 2014 to June 2020. Relevant updated national and international bibliography was consulted, for a total 51 references: three basic books from the specialty of immunology and 48 papers (12 in Spanish and 36 in English). The search terms used were obtained from the descriptors DeCS and MeSH. Results: Feminine hormones increase the risk of autoimmune diseases. Imbalance in the neurohormone melatonin may generate autoreactive lymphocytes. Stress may maintain chronic inflammatory responses causing tissue damage. Appropriate eating habits allow gut microbiota commensals to maintain the homeostasis of the immune system. Infections occasionally develop autoimmune responses. Causality between cancer and autoimmunity is bidirectional, due to the presence of inflammatory processes. Conclusions: Autoimmune diseases are more common among women. Appropriate eating habits prevent alterations of the gut microbiota, allowing it to maintain immune homeostasis. Stress situations and infections may trigger autoimmune responses. Cancer may foster the development of autoimmune manifestations, and these, due to the inflammatory predominance, may foster tumorigenesis(AU)

ABSTRACT

Abstract Objectives: to perform a systematic review of studies that investigated the influence of ultra-processed foods (UPF) consumption during pregnancy on child's anthropometric parameters up to one year of life. Methods: cohort and cross-sectional studies were researched in BVS, Cinahl, Cochrane, Embase, Pubmed, Scopus and Web of Science databases until March 2020, and the main descriptors were: "Pregnant Women", "Ultra-processed foods", "Birth Weight", "Smallfor Gestational Age", "Infant", "Newborn". Results: seventeen articles were considered eligible and evaluated the associations between the exposures: ultra-processed dietary patterns; soft drinks, sugar-sweetened beverages, artificially sweetened beverages; fast food, junk food, sweets, snacks and the outcomes: birth weight and its classifications; length and head circumference at birth; birth weight adjustments according to gestational age; weight/age, length/age, body mass index/age and weight/length indices. The results showed: 36 non-significant associations between the exposures and the outcomes; 13 direct associations (outcomes versus ultraprocessed dietary patterns, soft drinks, artificially sweetened beverages, sweets, junk food) and 5 inverse associations (outcomes versus ultra-processed dietary patterns, soft drinks). Conclusions: most of the evaluated literature did not demonstrate the influence of UPF consumption during pregnancy on the newborn's anthropometric measurements up to one year of life and denoted a smaller number of direct and inverse associations between the exposures and the outcomes.


Resumo Objetivos: realizar uma revisão sistemática de estudos que investigaram a influência do consumo de alimentos ultraprocessados (AUP) na gestação nas medidas antropométricas do recém-nascido até um ano de idade. Métodos: foram pesquisados estudos de coorte e transversais nas bases BVS, Cinahl, Cochrane, Embase, Pubmed, Scopus e Web of Science até março de 2020, tendo como principais descritores: "Pregnant women", "Ultra-processed foods", "Birth weight", "Small for Gestational Age", "Infant", "Newborn". Resultados: dezessete artigos foram considerados elegíveis e avaliaram as associações entre as exposições: padrões alimentares ultraprocessados; refrigerantes, sugar-sweetened beverages ou artificially sweetened beverages; fastfood, junkfood, doces e snacks e os desfe-chos:peso ao nascer e suas classificações; comprimento e perímetro cefálico ao nascimento; adequações do peso ao nascer segundo idade gestacional; e índices peso/idade, compri-mento/idade, índice de massa corporal/idade e peso/comprimento. Foram encontradas: 36 associações nulas entre exposições e desfechos avaliados; 13 diretas (desfechos versus padrões alimentares ultraprocessados, refrigerantes, artificially sweetened beverages, doces e junkfood) e 5 inversas (desfechos versus padrões alimentares ultraprocessados e refrigerantes). Conclusões: a maioria da literatura avaliada não demonstrou influência do consumo de AUP na gestação nas medidas antropométricas do recém-nascido até um ano de vida e apontou um menor número de associações diretas e inversas entre as exposições e os desfechos analisados.

ABSTRACT

La vitamina D es esencial para el funcionamiento del organismo. Su deficiencia puede estar asociada tanto a patologías óseas, como a otras afecciones sistémicas. La prevalencia de la hipovitaminosis está aumentando, en todas las edades, incluidos niños y adolescentes. El objetivo del presente estudio fue evaluar los niveles sanguíneos de vitamina D en niñas colombianas, analizando también la dieta, la actividad física y la exposición solar. Se realizó un estudio descriptivo transversal con 52 niñas sanas prepúberes de Pasto (Colombia), entre 7 y 10 años. Se analizaron los niveles de albúmina, calcio, fósforo, magnesio, calcitriol (1,25 dihidroxicolecalciferol) y calcidiol (25 hidroxicolecalciferol). Se realizaron encuestas sobre hábitos alimentarios, actividad física y exposición solar. El 51,1% de las niñas evaluadas presentó insuficiencia de 25-OH-VITD y el 40% presentó deficiencia (< 20 ng/mL). Ninguna niña se encontraba en desnutrición u obesidad, el 10% se encontraba en riesgo de bajo peso (IMC ≤ -1DE y > -2DE), el 4 % presentaba sobrepeso (≥ +1DE y < +2DE), y el 34 % se encontraban en riesgo de talla baja (T/E: -1 y -2 DE). La ingesta media de calorías/día fue inferior a las recomendadas. Se observó una ingesta deficiente de vitamina D, calcio y magnesio (p > 0,05), así como de fibra (p > 0,05). Se pone de manifiesto una deficiencia de vitamina D en las niñas evaluadas a pesar de tener una actividad física y una exposición solar adecuadas. Además, se observan ingestas deficientes de fibra, calcio, magnesio y vitamina D. Habría por tanto que asegurar la ingesta e incluso suplementar para evitar problemas de salud en la edad adulta(AU)


Vitamin D is essential for the body to function. Its deficiency can be associated with bone pathologies as well as other systemic conditions. The prevalence of hypovitaminosisis increasing, in all ages, including children and adolescents. The objective of this study was to evaluate blood levels of vitamin D in Colombian girls, also analyzing diet, physical activity and sun exposure. A descriptive cross-sectional study was carried out with 52 healthy prepubertal girls from Pasto (Colombia), between 7 and 10 yearsold. The levels of albumin, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, calcitriol (1.25 dihydroxycholecalciferol) and calcidiol (25 hydroxycholecalciferol) were analyzed. Surveys were conducted one a ting habits, physicalactivity and sun exposure. 51.1% of the girls evaluated presented 25-OH-VITD insufficiency and 40% presented deficiency (<20 ng / mL). None of the girls were under nourished or obese, 10% were at risk of low weight (BMI ≤ -1SD and> -2SD), 4% were overweight (≥ + 1DE and <+ 2DE), and 34% were they were at risk of short stature (T / E: -1 and -2 SD). The average calorie intake / day was lower than recommended. A deficient intake of vitamin D, calcium and magnesium (p> 0.05), as well as fiber (p> 0.05) was observed. A vitamin D deficiency is evident in the girls evaluated despite adequate physical activity and sun exposure. In addition, deficient intakes of fiber, calcium, magnesium and vitamin D are observed. Therefore, it would be necessary to ensure the intake and even supplement to avoid health problems in adulthood(AU)

ABSTRACT

Las infecciones de las vías respiratorios altas (IVRA), son debilitantes para el potencial deportivo de los atletas de élite. El ejercicio físico activa múltiples vías moleculares y bioquímicas relacionadas con el sistema inmune, sensibles a influencias nutricionales. Sobre este contexto, la inmunonutrición está adquiriendo una nueva dirección orientada a conseguir el equilibrio inmunológico, contraponiéndose con algunas de las teorías que han sentado las bases de la inmunología del ejercicio durante las últimas décadas. Objetivo. Investigar los aspectos nutricionales que puedan mejorar la respuesta inmunológica en deportistas de elite. Estudiar los posibles beneficios del equilibrio inmunológico para mejorar el rendimiento, analizar los factores nutricionales que contribuyan al equilibrio de la respuesta inmunológica y extrapolar la evidencia actual en recomendaciones prácticas de alimentación/suplementación para mejorar la homeostasis de la respuesta inmunológica en atletas de élite, teniendo en cuenta las limitaciones existentes.Resultados. La evidencia científica apunta que se puede potenciar el equilibrio inmunológico y la respuesta inmune a través de la modificación de factores nutricionales. Dentro de los cuales, la vitamina D, los probióticos, la vitamina C y el cinc son los que cuentan con mayor evidencia. Conclusión. Los avances científicos resultan prometedores y de interés para los atletas de élite, debido a que pueden disminuir la incidencia de IVRA, mejorando el éxito deportivo de los mismos. Se requieren más estudios para su validación y aplicación(AU)


Upper respiratory tract infections (URTI) are debilitating for the athletic potential of elite athletes. Physical exercise in elite athletes activates multiple molecular and biochemical pathways related to the immune system, which, at the same time, are sensitive to nutritional influences. Based on this context, immunonutrition is taking a new direction aimed at achieving the immunological balance. Objective. To investigate the nutritional aspects that can improve the immune response in elite athletes. To study the potential benefits of immune balance to improve performance, to analyse nutritional factors that contribute to the balance of the immune response and to extrapolate current evidence into practical dietary/supplementation recommendations to improve the homeostasis of the immune response in elite athletes, considering existing limitations. Results. Scientific evidence suggests that immune balance and immune response can be enhanced through the modification of nutritional factors. Among which, vitamin D, probiotics, vitamin C and zinc are the micronutrients with most evidence. Conclusion. Scientific advances in this field are promising and of great interest to elite athletes since it could decrease the incidence of URTI and, as a consequence, it could improve their sporting success. However, more studies are still required for its validation and application(AU)

ABSTRACT

The reduction of hours of sleep affects the physical and mental health of people. Having unhealthy sleep habits are associated with a greater occurrence of daytime sleepiness, which in turn has been related to poorer nutritional status. The objective of this study was to relate food intake, anthropometric measurements, and daytime sleepiness in Ecuadorian adults. Non-experimental, cross-sectional study, the sample included 400 men and women between 18 and 65 years of age, who attended an outpatient consultation of general medicine, family medicine, and traumatology services of a public hospital in Quito-Ecuador. Anthropometric and body composition measurements were measured using tetrapolar bio-impedance, following the recommendations of the International Society for the Advancement of Anthropometry (ISAK). Caloric intake was measured using a 24-hour recall and for daytime sleepiness (DS) the Epworth questionnaire was used. Statistical analyzes were performed using R. From the sample 56.5% presented DS, which affected women more frequently compared to men (p < 0.05). Differences were found between body measurements and dietary intake between groups of people with and without DS. Caloric intake, waist circumference, percentage of fat mass were higher in people with DS (p < 0.05), while muscle mass was higher in subjects without DS (p <0.05). No differences were found concerning visceral fat. We conclude that SD is related to less healthy values in terms of dietary intake and anthropometric measures(AU)


La reducción de las horas de sueño afecta la salud física y mental de las personas. Tener hábitos de sueño poco saludables se asocia a una mayor ocurrencia de somnolencia diurna, lo que a su vez se ha relacionado con un peor Estado Nutricional. El objetivo de este estudio fue relacionar la ingesta de alimentos, las medidas antropométricas y la somnolencia diurna en adultos ecuatorianos. Estudio no experimental, transversal n=400 hombres y mujeres entre 18 y 65 años, que acudieron a consulta externa de los servicios de medicina general, medicina familiar y traumatología de un hospital público de Quito, Ecuador tomado como referencia. Se tomaron medidas antropométricas siguiendo las recomendaciones de la Sociedad Internacional para el Avance de la Antropometría (ISAK) y de composición corporal a través de la bioimpedancia tetrapolar. La ingesta calórica se midió mediante un recordatorio de 24 horas y para somnolencia diurna (SD)se utilizó el cuestionario de Epworth. Los análisis estadísticos se realizaron utilizando el software R. 56,5% de la muestra presenta SD, que afectó con mayor frecuencia a las mujeres en comparación con los hombres (p <0,05). Se encontraron diferencias entre las medidas corporales y la ingesta dietética entre grupos de personas con SD y sin ella. La ingesta calórica, la circunferencia de la cintura, el porcentaje de masa grasa fue mayor en personas con SD (p <0.05), mientras que la masa muscular fue mayor en sujetos sin SD (p <0.05). No se encontraron diferencias en relación con la grasa visceral. Concluimos que SD está relacionada con valores menos saludables en cuanto a ingesta dietética y medidas antropométricas(AU)

ABSTRACT

En 2008 México enfrentó una crisis alimentaria que impactó la adquisición de comestibles, ocho años después se acentuó la tendencia de los alimentos, que son más energéticos y menos nutritivos, ocasionando problemas en la salud de la población. Objetivo: Identificar la adquisición de alimentos y su equivalente en calorías en el 2008 y 2016 en hogares rurales y urbanos del sureste de México. Material y métodos: se realizó un estudio de tipo transversal, retrospectivo y comparativo de dos muestras independientes a partir de bases de datos de las Encuestas Nacionales de Ingreso Gasto en Hogares en México de 2008 y 2016. Se trabajó con un total de 5.840 hogares de los cuales, 3.522 fueron urbanos y 2.318 rurales. Las variables consideradas fueron: encuestas, tipos de hogares y adquisición de alimentos equivalentes en calorías. Para el análisis estadístico se utilizó la prueba paramétrica t de Student para muestras independientes, medias, desviación estándar y homogeneidad de varianzas, se tomó como significativo una p < ,05 Resultados: los alimentos de mayor adquisición calórica en ambos años y hogares fueron, cereales y productos de origen animal y los menos, verduras y frutas (p < ,001). Los hogares rurales, incrementaron significativamente (p < ,001) los cereales para el 2016, así como en los urbanos, disminuyó en aceites y carnes procesadas (p < ,001). Conclusión: después de la crisis alimentaria del 2008 se observaron cambios alimentarios en hogares rurales, atribuyéndosele más a la transición alimentaria que a la crisis, las familias adquirieron nuevos hábitos alimentarios(AU)


In 2008 México faced a food crisis that impacted the acquisition of groceries, eight years later the trend of foods, which are more energetic and less nutritious, was accentuated, causing problems in the health of the population. Objective: Identify food acquisition and its calorie equivalent in 2008 and 2016 in rural and urban households in southeastern México. Material and methods: A cross-sectional, retrospective and comparative study of two independent samples was conducted from databases of the National Household Spending and Income Surveys in Mexico in 2008 and 2016. A total of 5,840 households were worked on, of which 3,522 were urban and 2,318 rural. The variables considered were: surveys, types of households and acquisition of calorie-equivalent foods. For statistical analysis, Student's t parametric test was used for independent samples, mean, standard deviation and variance homogeneity, a p < ,05 was taken as significant. Results: The foods with the highest caloric acquisition in both years and households were cereals and products of animal origin and the least vegetables and fruits (p < ,001). Rural households significantly increased cereals for 2016 (p < ,001), as well as in urban households, decreased in oils and processed meats (p< ,001). Conclusion: After the 2008 food crisis, dietary changes were observed in rural households, with more attributed to the food transition than to the crisis, families acquired new eating habits(AU)

ABSTRACT

To analyze the influence of individual and household factors on eating behavior (EB) and other determinants related to eating during the home lockdown in the Covid-19 pandemic. Method: Online survey (April 17 to May 10, 2020) to collect sociodemographic information, health, and various EB attitudes. Statistical analysis of the factors: country, setting, sex, BMI classification, lockdown period, a household with children under 15 years, nutritional needs, age groups, type and size household, monthly income, and religion. Results: 1055 households participated. 75% have modified their eating habits, with differences due to being overweight or obese in the person surveyed (p <0.05). Changes in EB and other lifestyles are influenced by household structure (p <0.001) and the effects that the pandemic has had on the economy of families (p <0.001). Compared to those who do not have them, households with children tend to plan much more meals, spend more time eating, seek a healthier diet, increase the number of daily meals, and look more at labeling. In contrast, people who live alone have worsened the hourly routines of the main meals. Conclusions: Confinement has modified eating behavior differently depending on the individual and domestic factors analyzed(AU)


Analizar la influencia de factores individuales y del hogar sobre el comportamiento alimentario (CA), y otros determinantes relacionados con la alimentación, durante el confinamiento domiciliario en la pandemia por Covid-19. Método: Encuesta online (17 abril al 10 de mayo de 2020) para recopilar información sociodemográfica, de salud y diversas actitudes del CA. Análisis estadístico sobre los factores: país, ámbito, sexo, IMC, tiempo de confinamiento, hogar con menores de 15 años, necesidades nutricionales, grupos de edad, tipo y tamaño del hogar, ingresos y religión. Resultados: Participaron 1055 hogares. El 75% ha modificado sus hábitos alimentarios, con diferencias por sobrepeso u obesidad de la persona encuestada (p<0.05). Los cambios en el CA y otros estilos de vida están influenciados por la estructura del hogar (p<0.001) y los efectos que la pandemia ha tenido sobre la economía de las familias (p<0.001). Los hogares que tienen hijos/as, respecto a los que no los tienen, tienden a planificar mucho más las comidas, dedicar más tiempo a la alimentación, procuran una alimentación más saludable, incrementan el número de comidas diarias y miran más el etiquetado. Por el contrario, las personas que viven solas han empeorado las rutinas horarias de las principales comidas. Conclusiones: El confinamiento ha modificado de manera diferenciada el comportamiento alimentario en función de los factores individuales y domésticos analizados(AU)

ABSTRACT

Objetivo: Avaliar a qualidade da dieta de crianças e adolescentes com excesso de peso e determinar a relação com fatores de risco cardiometabólico. Métodos: Estudo quantitativo, transversal e analítico, realizado entre dezembro de 2016 e agosto de 2018, com crianças e adolescentes. Coletaram-se variáveis comportamentais (prática de atividade física e tempo de tela), antropométricas (peso, altura, índice de massa corporal, circunferência abdominal e do pescoço) e dietéticas (recordatório de 24 horas) e os dados bioquímicos foram consultados nos prontuários. Avaliou-se a resistência à insulina (RI), usando Homeostasis Model Assessment ­ Insulin Resistance (HOMA-IR), e a qualidade da dieta, por meio do Índice de Qualidade da Dieta Revisado (IQD-R). Análises realizadas pelos testes de Spearman e Mann-Whitney U, com nível de significância de 5%. Resultados: A amostra incluiu 100 crianças e adolescentes, sendo 71 (71%) do sexo feminino, média de idade de 9,42 ± 2,89 anos. IQD-R apresentou valor médio de 61,16 (IC 95%: 59,14 ­ 63,19) e nenhum participante apresentou dieta de boa qualidade. Não foram encontradas associações entre o escore do IQD-R e marcadores cardiometabólicos. Observaram-se associações negativas entre os componentes "vegetais totais e leguminosas" e HOMA-IR (r= -0,290), "vegetais verde-escuros, alaranjados e leguminosas" e HOMA-IR (r= -0,333) e "vegetais verde-escuros, alaranjados e leguminosas" com insulina de jejum (r= -0,291). Participantes com mais de três fatores de risco cardiometabólico tiveram pontuação significativamente maior do componente "gordura sólida e açúcar de adição". Conclusão: Nenhum participante investigado apresentou dieta qualitativamente adequada. A baixa ingestão de vegetais e leguminosas foi associada com marcadores de RI.

Objective: To assess the quality of the diet of children and adolescents with excess weight and determine its relationship with cardiometabolic risk factors. Methods: This quantitative descriptive cross-sectional study was carried out from December 2016 to August 2018 with children and adolescents. Behavioral (regular physical activity, screen time), anthropometric (weight, height, Body Mass Index, abdominal circumference, neck circumferences) and dietary (24-hour recalls) data were collected, and biochemical data were retrieved from medical records. Insulin resistance (IR) was measured using the Homeostasis Model Assessment ­ Insulin Resistance (HOMA-IR) and diet quality was assessed using the Revised Diet Quality Index (Índice de Qualidade da Dieta Revisado ­ IQD-R). Analyses using Spearman's and Mann-Whitney U tests were performed with a significance threshold set at 5%. Results: The sample consisted of 100 children and adolescents, 71 (71%) of whom were girls, and the mean age was 9.42±2.89 years. The mean IQD-R was 61.16 (95%CI: 59.14 ­ 63.19) and none of the participants presented a good quality diet. No associations were found between the IQD-R score and cardiometabolic markers. However, negative associations were observed between "total vegetables and legumes" and HOMA-IR (r=-0.290), "dark green and orange vegetables and legumes" and HOMA-IR (r=-0.333) and "dark green and orange vegetables and legumes" and fasting insulin (r=-0.291). The participants who presented more than three cardiometabolic risk factors had a significantly higher score on the "solid fat and added sugar" component. Conclusion: None of the participants had a qualitatively adequate diet. The low intake of vegetables and legumes was associated with IR markers.

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT Purpose: To determine whether codeine plus acetaminophen after photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) have beneficial effects on sleep quality, activity levels, and food intake, beyond their effect of pain relief. Methods: We enrolled 40 patients (80 eyes) in this randomized, double-blind, paired-eye, placebo-controlled, add-on trial. Each eye was treated 2 weeks apart, and the patients were randomly allocated to receive either the placebo or the intervention (30 mg codeine and 500 mg acetaminophen) (4 times a day for 4 days). Outcomes were sleep quality, daily activity level, and food intake within 24-72 h post-photorefractive keratectomy, as measured by the McGill Pain Questionnaire. Results: Sleep quality and daily activity level were inversely associated with pain scores within the first 48 h post-photorefractive keratectomy. During the intervention, patients were significantly more likely to score their sleep quality as good at 24 h (relative risk=2.5; 95% confidence interval 1.48-4.21, p<0.001) and 48 h compared to during placebo (relative risk=1.37; 95% confidence interval: 1.03-1.84, p=0.023). The probability of reporting good daily activity level at 24 and 72 hours post-photorefractive keratectomy was three times higher when patients received the intervention compared to the placebo (relative risk=3.0; 95% confidence interval: 1.49-6.15, p=0.006 and relative risk=1.31; 95% confidence interval: 1.02-1.67, p=0.021, respectively). No difference was observed in food intake. Conclusion: The oral combination of codeine and acetaminophen significantly improves sleep quality and daily activity level within the first 24-72 h post-photorefractive keratectomy compared to a placebo.


RESUMO Objetivo: Determinar se codeína (30 mg) mais pa­racetamol (500 mg) após ceratectomia fotorrefrativa fornece efeitos benéficos sobre a qualidade do sono, níveis de atividade e ingestão de alimentos além de seu efeito analgésico. Métodos: Quarenta pacientes (80 olhos) foram incluídos neste estudo randomizado, duplo-cego, pareado, placebo-controlado, add-on. Cada olho foi tratado com 2 semanas de intervalo, sendo aleatoriamente alocado para placebo ou intervenção (4x/dia durante 4 dias). Os resultados incluíram a qualidade do sono, atividade diária e ingestão de alimentos dentro de 24-72 horas de pós-operatório, conforme medido pelo McGill Pain Questionnaire. Resultados: A qualidade do sono e os níveis de atividade foram inversamente associados aos escores de dor nas primeiras 48 horas após o ceratectomia fotorrefrativa. Durante a intervenção, os pacientes foram significativamente mais propensos a classificar seu sono como bom em 24 horas (risco relativo=2,5, intervalo de confiança de 95%: 1,48-4,21, p<0,001) e 48 horas comparado ao placebo (risco relativo=1,37, intervalo de confiança de 95%: 1,03-1,84, p=0,023). A probabilidade de relatar bons níveis de atividade em 24 e 72 horas após ceratectomia fotorrefrativa também foi significativamente maior durante a intervenção em comparação com placebo (risco relativo=3,0, intervalo de confiança de 95%: 1,49-6,15, p=0,006 e risco relativo=1,31, intervalo de confiança de 95%: 1,02 -1,67, p=0,021, respectivamente). Nenhuma diferença foi observada entre a intervenção e placebo em relação à alimentação oral. Conclusão: A combinação de codeína e paracetamol melhorou significativamente a qualidade do sono e atividades diárias nas primeiras 24-72 horas após o ceratectomia fotorrefrativa em comparação com placebo.

ABSTRACT

Introducción: Hasta 30% de las causas del cáncer se atribuyen a la alimentación. Los sobrevivientes de esta enfermedad, como parte del autocuidado, deben adquirir una alimentación saludable. Este estudio pretendió describir los cambios alimentarios realizados entre el primero y segundo diagnóstico de cáncer y conocer algunas de sus causas. Materiales y Métodos: Se utilizó una muestra aleatoria de proporciones con 195 pacientes, a quienes se les aplicó una encuesta en el año 2019, relacionada con el objeto de estudio. Para el análisis de los datos, se usó el método estadístico factorial de correspondencia múltiple, análisis de clúster y distribución de frecuencias. Resultados: La salud fue lo que más motivó al cambio de hábitos alimentarios, seguido por factores asociados al tratamiento. Las personas disminuyeron el consumo de carnes con grasa, fritos, alcohol, snacks, embutidos y lácteos, aumentando la ingesta de frutas y verduras. Discusión: Luego de un segundo diagnóstico de cáncer, los participantes presentaron cambios favorables para la salud, acordes a las recomendaciones de los entes internacionales. El estado de salud y el tratamiento para el cáncer, fueron las condiciones que más influyeron para que las personas sobrevivientes de cáncer realizaran cambios en su alimentación ante un nuevo diagnóstico o una recidiva. Conclusión: Los sobrevivientes de cáncer con recidiva, modifican su alimentación hacia una vida más saludable. Se debe promover una alimentación adecuada en la población en general, y más aún en sobrevivientes de cáncer.


Introduction: Up to 30% of cancer cases are linked to food. As part of their self-care practice, cancer survivors should eat a healthy diet. This study aimed to describe the changes in diet habits made between the first and second cancer diagnosis, as well as to learn more about cancer causes. Materials and Methods: A random sample proportion was used with 195 patients who responded to a survey in 2019 related to the object of study. For data analysis, statistical correspondence factorial analysis, cluster analysis and frequency distribution were carried out. Results: Health was the main reason for changing eating habits, followed by factors associated with cancer treatment. Patients reduced their consumption of fatty meats, fried foods, alcohol, snacks, cold cuts, and dairy products, while increased their fruit and vegetable intake. Discussion: After a second cancer diagnosis, participants reported favorable changes in improving their health based on the recommendations of international organizations. Health status and cancer treatment were conditions that most influenced cancer survivors to change diet habits in the face of a new diagnosis or relapse. Conclusion: Patients with cancer recurrence decide to change their eating habits to have a healthier life. Adequate nutrition should be promoted among the general population and even more in cancer survivors.


Introdução: Até 30% dos casos de câncer são atribuídas à dieta. Como parte de seu autocuidado, os sobreviventes desta doença devem ter uma dieta saudável. Este estudo teve como objetivo descrever as mudanças nos hábitos alimentares feitas entre o primeiro e o segundo diagnóstico de câncer e compreender algumas das causas. Materiais e métodos: Uma amostra aleatória foi utilizada com 195 pacientes que responderam a uma pesquisa em 2019 relacionada ao objeto de estudo. Para análise de dados, foram realizadas análises fatoriais de correspondência estatística, análise de agrupamentos e distribuição de frequências. Resultados: A saúde foi a principal razão para a mudança de hábitos alimentares, seguida por fatores associados ao tratamento do câncer. Os pacientes reduziram seu consumo de carnes gordurosas, alimentos fritos, álcool, lanches, embutidos e produtos lácteos, enquanto aumentavam a ingestão de frutas e vegetais. Discussão: Após um segundo diagnóstico de câncer, os participantes apresentaram mudanças favoráveis para melhorar sua saúde, com base nas recomendações de organizações internacionais. O estado de saúde e o tratamento do câncer foram as condições que mais influenciaram para que os sobreviventes do câncer mudassem sua dieta diante de um novo diagnóstico ou recaída. Conclusão: Os pacientes com recidiva de câncer decidem mudar seus hábitos alimentares para ter uma vida mais saudável. A nutrição adequada deve ser promovida entre a população em geral e ainda mais entre os sobreviventes de câncer.

ABSTRACT

This study describes an outbreak of acute necrotic hepatopathy associated with spontaneous poisoning by Lantana camara L. in dairy cattle. A herd of 15 cows and heifers was introduced into a native pasture with limited food supply, and, sixteen days later, eight animals had spontaneous nasal hemorrhage, fever, lethargy, jaundice, and dry, dark stools with mucus and blood. The clinical course varied from two to five days. In the pasture where the cattle were kept, abundant adult specimens of L. camara L. with evident signs of consumption were observed. In total, seven cattle died and necropsy was performed in three of them. All animals had moderate jaundice, hemorrhage in the subcutaneous tissue and on the surface of different organs. The liver was slightly enlarged, with orange discoloration and enhanced lobular pattern. Histologically, multifocal areas of coagulative necrosis of hepatocytes in the centrilobular area, occasionally extending to the midzonal area, were observed, as well as marked hepatocellular degeneration and prominent cholestasis. The current study suggests that L. camara L. poisoning should be considered a differential diagnosis of acute and necrotic hepatotoxicity in cattle, despite the absence of photosensitization.(AU)


Esse estudo descreve um surto de hepatopatia necrótica aguda associada a intoxicação espontânea por Lantana camara L. em bovinos leiteiros. Um lote de 15 vacas e novilhas foram introduzidas em um piquete com campo nativo, com escassa oferta de alimento. Após dezesseis dias, oito animais manifestaram epistaxe, febre, apatia, icterícia, fezes ressecadas e escuras com muco e sangue. A evolução do quadro clínico variou de dois a cinco dias. No piquete em que os bovinos estavam alojados havia grande quantidade de L. camara L. com sinais evidentes de consumo. No total, sete bovinos morreram, e destes, o exame post mortem foi realizado em três. Os bovinos exibiam moderada icterícia, hemorragias no tecido subcutâneo e na superfície de diferentes órgãos. O fígado estava discretamente aumentado, com coloração alaranjada e padrão lobular evidente. As lesões histológicas consistiam em acentuada necrose de coagulação de hepatócitos em região centrolobular, por vezes se estendendo a região mediozonal, além de acentuada degeneração dos hepatócitos e evidente Colestase. O presente trabalho alerta para que intoxicação por L. camara L. seja levada em consideração nos diagnósticos diferenciais de hepatotoxicidade necrótica aguda em bovinos, mesmo sem indícios de fotossensibilização.(AU)
