Introduction: Healthy Eating has been one of the guidelines of the Ministry of Health since 2014. Important indicators of the risks for chronic-degenerative diseases are Body Mass Index (BMI) and Abdominal Waist (CA) measurement. Objectives: To calculate the BMI and measure the AC of a population of a university campus. Methodology: Quantitative and descriptive research. Sample of convenience of 34 individuals in the campus of the Catholic University of Pernambuco in the activities of the Module Teaching, Service and Community II. Results and Discussion: 1st Social function and BMI: Students (Normal: 57%). Teacher (Normal: 50% and Overweight: 50%). Employees (Normal: 43% and Obesity: 43%). 2nd Social function and CA: Professor (Risk: 50%) Employees (Risk: 70%). Age and BMI: 31 to 40 years (Normal: 50% and Overweight: 50%). 41 to 50 years old (Overweight: 50%). 51 to 60 years old (Obesity: 52%) 4th Age and CA: 31 to 40 years old (Risk: 50%). 41 to 50 years (Risk: 75% and No Risk: 25%). 51 to 60 years (Risk: 60%). > 60 years (Risk: 67%). Increased risk between older ages and roles of teachers and staff. Conclusion: There is a need for Health Education orienting subjects in terms of changes in lifestyle habits.

Nursing assistance to the patient in the perioperatory period of general surgery: an integrating review

Review article of American Journal of Ophthalmic Research and Reviews Nursing assistance to the patient in the perioperatory period of general surgery: an integrating review Oliveira, J.V1 1Enfermeira graduada pela Universidade Salgado de Oliveira, Especialista em Enfermagem do Trabalho e Estudante de Pós-Graduação de Auditoria em Saúde-IDE In the perioperative period the role of the nurse is to guide the patient and prepare him for the procedure, raise problems and needs, provide information. Objective: To verify in the literature the performance of nursing in a surgical center during the perioperative period of general surgery. Method: This is an integrative review, referring to the scientific production in the area of nursing in a surgical center (CC), in order to summarize the studies already published in national journals in the years 2011 to 2016, indexed in databases: (LILACS), Medical Literature Analysis and Retrieval System Online (MEDLINE) and Scientific Electronic Library Online (SCIELO), the articles included were in Portuguese (Brazil) and with full texts, available for access on -line. Results: Of the 161 articles found, 139 were excluded, respecting the exclusion criteria mentioned above. Of these 22 articles found in the indexed, only 9 articles met the inclusion criteria. The articles dealt with the experience of nurses and their staff in providing the best quality care possible. This study addresses the quantitative of articles researched concerning the role of the nurse before, during and after general surgery procedure, ie, showing the nursing performance.

Research article of American Journal of Ophthalmic Research and Reviews Detect and partially purify trypsin inhibitor from Aesculus hippocastanum (Indian chestnut) seeds Farias M.F.A.M.S1; Patriota L.L.S2; Procópio T.F2; Paiva P.M.G3; Santos N.D.L4; Napoleão T.H3 1Estudante do Curso de Biomedicina – UFPE,2Doutoranda em Bioquímica e Fisiologia; 3Docente do Departamento de Bioquímica da UFPE. 4Pesquisadora do Departamento de Bioquímica da UFPE. Introduction: Plants have several mechanisms of defense against phytopathogens, being one of them formation of defense proteins, such as protease inhibitors. Objectives: The objective of this work was to detect and partially purify trypsin inhibitor from Aesculus hippocastanum (Indian chestnut) seeds. Methodology: The A. hippocastanum seed powder was submitted to saline extraction in 0.15 M NaCl (10% w/v). The extract was evaluated for trypsin inhibitor activity and protein concentration and to chromatography on DEAE-Sephadex column equilibrated with 0.1 M Tris-HCl pH 8.0 and eluted with the same buffer containing 1.0 M NaCl. The obtained peaks were dialyzed and evaluated for trypsin inhibitory activity. Results and Discussion: Saline extract (4 mg/mL of protein) showed a specific trypsin inhibitory activity (STIA) of 149.57 U/mg. The pool of proteins adsorbed on DEAE-Sephadex matrix showed high STIA (1280.31 U/mg), corresponding to a purification factor of 8.5. Conclusion: Seeds of A. hippocastanum possess a trypsin inhibitor that was partially purified by ion exchange chromatography. Keywords:  Indian chestnut; trypsin inhibitor; protein purification ...

The main treatment options for patients with chronic Chikungunya fever symptoms

Review article of American Journal of Ophthalmic Research and Reviews The main treatment options for patients with chronic Chikungunya fever symptoms Batista, M. C. ¹; Silveira, L. P. O. S ²; Soares, M. A. G. ³; Ramos, R. C. F. 4 1, 2, 3Estudante do Curso de Medicina - Unicap; 4 Pesquisador do Hospital Oswaldo Cruz, Depto de Infectologia Pediátrica. Introduction: Chikungunya fever is a disease caused by the chikungunya virus (CHIKV) and is transmitted by arthropod bites, mainly by the species Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus. It became an epidemic in 2005, reaching, afterwards, America, including Brazil, with intense consequences for its population. Its spectrum of manifestation includes three phases: acute, subacute and chronic, in addition to some reports of atypical cases. Little is known about its pathophysiology, fact that turns it into an area of extreme research. Objectives: Carry out a literature review about the main treatment options for patients with chronic Chikungunya fever symptoms. Methodology: A literature review was carried out covering articles from the last 10 years (2007 to 2017), selected through a search in the PUBMED database, using the descriptor “Febre Chinkungunya”. Results and Conclusion: Regarding the treatment, it was seen that there is still no specific drug, despite the studies, using purely symptomatic drugs, with increasing doses based on the clinical phase presented.
