A group of nine islands and several islets belonging to Portugal in the north Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Portugal. The islands are named after the acores, the Portuguese for goshawks, living there in abundance. (Webster's New Geographical Dictionary, 1988, p102 & Room, Brewer's Dictionary of Names, 1992, p42)
I'm sorry for any confusion, but "Portugal" is not a medical term and does not have a medical definition. It is a country located in southwestern Europe, known for its rich history, culture, and contributions to various fields including medicine. If you have any questions related to medical topics or definitions, I would be happy to help!

Alicyclobacillus hesperidum sp. nov. and a related genomic species from solfataric soils of Sao Miguel in the Azores. (1/33)

Several acidophilic, slightly thermophilic or thermophilic Gram-positive isolates were recovered from solfataric soil at Furnas on the Island of Sao Miguel in the Azores. Phylogenetic analysis of the 16S rRNA gene sequence showed that these organisms represented two novel species of the genus Alicyclobacillus. Strains FR-11T and FR-1b had an optimum growth temperature of about 50 degrees C, whereas strains FR-3 and FR-6T had an optimum growth temperature of about 60 degrees C. Biochemical, physiological and chemotaxonomic characteristics did not distinguish isolates FR-3 and FR-6T from the type strain of Alicyclobacillus acidocaldarius; however, strains FR-11T and FR-1b could be easily distinguished from the type strain of Alicyclobacillus acidoterrestris by the carbon source assimilation pattern and the fatty acid composition. On the basis of the phylogenetic analysis, physiological and biochemical characteristics, and fatty acid composition the name Alicyclobacillus hesperidum is proposed for the species represented by strains FR-11T and FR-1b; a formal name for the new genomic species represented by strains FR-3 and FR-6T is not proposed at this time.  (+info)

Marinitoga camini gen. nov., sp. nov., a rod-shaped bacterium belonging to the order Thermotogales, isolated from a deep-sea hydrothermal vent. (2/33)

A thermophilic, anaerobic, chemo-organotrophic sulfur-reducing bacterium, designated MV1075T, was isolated from a deep-sea hydrothermal chimney sample collected on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. Cells were rod-shaped with a sheath-like outer structure, motile with polar flagella and stained Gram-negative. They appeared singly, in pairs or in short chains. The temperature range for growth was 25-65 degrees C, with an optimum at 55 degrees C. Growth was observed from pH 5 to pH 9, and the optimum pH was around 7. The salinity range for growth was 15-70 g sea salt l(-1) (corresponding to 10-45 g NaCl l(-1)), with an optimum at 30 g l(-1) (20 g NaCl l(-1)). The isolate was able to grow on a broad spectrum of carbohydrates or complex proteinaceous substrates. Sulfur was not necessary for growth. Growth was inhibited by H2, but, in presence of sulfur, this inhibition was removed and H2S was produced. The G+C content of the genomic DNA was 29 mol %. Phylogenetic analyses of the 16S rRNA gene located the strain within the order Thermotogales, in the domain Bacteria. On the basis of 16S rDNA sequence comparisons, in combination with morphological and physiological characteristics, it is proposed that the isolate should be described as a novel species of a new genus, Marinitoga gen. nov., of which Marinitoga camini sp. nov. is the type species. The type strain is MV1075T (= CNCM 1-2413T = DSM 13578T).  (+info)

Prevalence of spondyloarthritis in Terceira, Azores: a population based study. (3/33)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the prevalence of spondyloarthritis (SpA) in the Caucasian population of Terceira Island, Azores. METHODS: Study subjects were recruited from people over the age of 50 years from one half of the island of Terceira (n=24 561). Seventy eight men and 78 women from each five year age group were selected, giving a total of 468 men and 468 women available for study, of whom 490 agreed to take part. These subjects were assessed by dorsal, lumbar, and pelvic radiography. Radiological sacroiliitis was identified in eight patients on whom sacroiliac computed tomography scans were performed. HLA class I typing by polymerase chain reaction with sequence-specific primers was carried out in seven cases. RESULTS: SpA was present in eight subjects (1.6%, 95% CI 0.8 to 2.7%), including seven men (2.7%) and one woman (0.4%). Three (1.2% ) male patients with definite ankylosing spondylitis were HLA-B27 positive. Only one person had a previous diagnosis of SpA. CONCLUSION: These data complement previous studies in European countries on SpA prevalence and establish an estimate of the overall prevalence of SpA in a southern European population.  (+info)

Genetic differentiation reflects geological history in the Azorean land snail, Leptaxis azorica. (4/33)

The land snail Leptaxis azorica, endemic on the Azores, was subjected to an electrophoretic (allozymes) and morphometric (genital tract) analysis. Genetic distances suggest the presence of four distinct lineages and are compatible with colonisation proceeding from the eastern, older islands (Santa Maria and Sao Miguel) to the west (Flores and Corvo). On Sao Miguel, genetic and morphometric differentiation is concordant with the separate colonisation of two islands that gave rise to the current island 50,000 years ago. The maximum time available for differentiation in isolation (0.55 million years) suggests a high rate of allozyme change between the two lineages on Sao Miguel. This may be related to population isolation and bottlenecks caused by human and volcanic activity on Sao Miguel in relatively recent times. This is more prominent in the eastern region where populations are also characterised by reduced genetic variation (loss of alleles and heterozygosity) compared to populations elsewhere.  (+info)

Sulfurihydrogenibium azorense, sp. nov., a thermophilic hydrogen-oxidizing microaerophile from terrestrial hot springs in the Azores. (5/33)

Five hydrogen-oxidizing, thermophilic, strictly chemolithoautotrophic, microaerophilic strains, with similar (99-100%) 16S rRNA gene sequences were isolated from terrestrial hot springs at Furnas, Sao Miguel Island, Azores, Portugal. The strain, designated Az-Fu1T, was characterized. The motile, 0.9-2.0 microm rods were Gram-negative and non-sporulating. The temperature growth range was from 50 to 73 degrees C (optimum at 68 degrees C). The strains grew fastest in 0.1% (w/v) NaCl and at pH 6, although growth was observed from pH 5.5 to 7.0. Az-Fu1T can use elemental sulfur, sulfite, thiosulfate, ferrous iron or hydrogen as electron donors, and oxygen (0.2-9.0%, v/v) as electron acceptor. Az-Fu1T is also able to grow anaerobically, with elemental sulfur, arsenate and ferric iron as electron acceptors. The Az-Fu1T G+C content was 33.6 mol%. Maximum-likelihood analysis of the 16S rRNA phylogeny placed the isolate in a distinct lineage within the Aquificales, closely related to Sulfurihydrogenibium subterraneum (2.0% distant). The 16S rRNA gene of Az-Fu1T is 7.7% different from that of Persephonella marina and 6.8% different from Hydrogenothermus marinus. Based on the phenotypic and phylogenetic characteristics presented here, it is proposed that Az-Fu1T belongs to the recently described genus Sulfurihydrogenibium. It is further proposed that Az-Fu1T represents a new species, Sulfurihydrogenibium azorense.  (+info)

Understanding differences between phylogenetic and pedigree-derived mtDNA mutation rate: a model using families from the Azores Islands (Portugal). (6/33)

We analyzed the control region of the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) from maternally related individuals originating from the Azores Islands (Portugal) in order to estimate the mutation rate of mtDNA and to gain insights into the process by which a new mutation arises and segregates into heteroplasmy. Length and/or point heteroplasmies were found at least in one individual of 72% of the studied families. Eleven new point substitutions were found, all of them in heteroplasmy, from which five appear to be somatic mutations and six can be considered germinal, evidencing the high frequency of somatic mutations in mtDNA in healthy young individuals. Different values of the mutation rate according to different assumptions were estimated. When considering all the germinal mutations, the value of the mutation rate obtained is one of the highest reported so far in family studies. However, when corrected for gender (assuming that the mutations present in men have the same evolutionary weight of somatic mutations because they will inevitably be lost) and for the probability of intraindividual fixation, the value for the mutation rate obtained for HVRI and HVRII (0.2415 mutations/site/Myr) was in the upper end of the values provided by phylogenetic estimations. These results indicate that the discrepancy, that has been reported previously, between the human mtDNA mutation rates observed along evolutionary timescales and the estimations obtained using family pedigrees can be minimized when corrections for gender proportions in newborn individuals and for the probability of intraindividual fixation are introduced. The analyses performed support the hypothesis that (1) in a constant, tight bottleneck genetic drift alone can explain different patterns of heteroplasmy segregation and (2) in neutral conditions, the destiny of a new mutation is strictly related to the initial proportion of the new variant. Another important point arising from the data obtained is that, even in the absence of a paternal contribution of mtDNA, recombination may occur between mtDNA molecules present in an individual, which is only observable if it occurs between mtDNA types that differ at two or more positions.  (+info)

Ectopic calcification among families in the Azores: clinical and radiologic manifestations in families with diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis and chondrocalcinosis. (7/33)

OBJECTIVE: Twelve families that were multiply affected with diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis (DISH) and/or chondrocalcinosis, were identified on the island of Terceira, The Azores, potentially supporting the hypothesis that the 2 disorders share common etiopathogenic factors. The present study was undertaken to investigate this hypothesis. METHODS: One hundred three individuals from 12 unrelated families were assessed. Probands were identified from patients attending the Rheumatic Diseases Clinic, Hospital de Santo Espirito, in The Azores. Family members were assessed by rheumatologists and radiologists. Radiographs of all family members were obtained, including radiographs of the dorsolumbar spine, pelvis, knees, elbows, and wrists, and all cases were screened for known features of chondrocalcinosis. RESULTS: Ectopic calcifications were identified in 70 patients. The most frequent symptoms or findings were as follows: axial pain, elbow, knee and metacarpophalangeal (MCP) joint pain, swelling, and/or deformity, and radiographic enthesopathic changes. Elbow and MCP joint periarticular calcifications were observed in 35 and 5 patients, respectively, and chondrocalcinosis was identified in 12 patients. Fifteen patients had sacroiliac disease (ankylosis or sclerosis) on computed tomography scans. Fifty-two patients could be classified as having definite (17%), probable (26%), or possible (31%) DISH. Concomitant DISH and chondrocalcinosis was diagnosed in 12 patients. Pyrophosphate crystals were identified from knee effusions in 13 patients. The pattern of disease transmission was compatible with an autosomal-dominant monogenic disease. The mean age at which symptoms developed was 38 years. CONCLUSION: These families may represent a familial type of pyrophosphate arthropathy with a phenotype that includes peripheral and axial enthesopathic calcifications. The concurrence of DISH and chondrocalcinosis suggests a shared pathogenic mechanism in the 2 conditions.  (+info)

Human leptospirosis in Portugal: A retrospective study of eighteen years. (8/33)

INTRODUCTION: Leptospirosis, an under-recognized public health problem, needs to be confirmed through specific laboratory diagnosis. DESIGN: We describe herein a series of 4618 symptomatic patients for whom a microagglutination test (MAT) serology was available, representing a unique picture of human leptospirosis in central mainland Portugal and the Azores islands of Sao Miguel and Terceira, over eighteen- and twelve-year periods, respectively. RESULTS: The distribution of the 1024 (22%) cases identified was an average 57 cases per year, with higher frequency in males (67%). These represent the majority of leptospirosis notifications in Portugal, with a higher annual incidence rate in the islands, compared to the central mainland (11.1 and 1.7/100,000 population, respectively). Middle-aged adults (25-54 years) were most frequently infected (45%). Cases occurred mainly in December and January. Serovars from nine presumptive serogroups caused infection, with a predominance of Icterohaemorrhagiae, Pomona, and Ballum, accounting for 66% of cases. CONCLUSIONS: Seropositivity was associated with both anicteric and icteric leptospirosis. Several risk factors and a higher transmission risk in certain areas were emphasized. Leptospirosis was confirmed as a steadily increasing public health problem; good surveillance, communication, and laboratory support are thus necessary to reduce the impact of leptospirosis in areas at risk.  (+info)

I'm not aware of any medical definitions for "Azores." The Azores is a group of nine volcanic islands in the Atlantic Ocean, located about 850 miles west of Portugal. They are an autonomous region of Portugal and have a population of around 250,000 people. The islands are known for their beautiful landscapes, mild climate, and unique flora and fauna.

If you have any specific questions related to the Azores or if there is something specific you would like to know about the region in a medical context, please let me know and I will do my best to help!

I'm sorry for any confusion, but "Portugal" is not a medical term. It is a country located in southwestern Europe, known officially as the Portuguese Republic. If you have any questions about medical terminology or health-related topics, I would be happy to help!

The term "Atlantic Islands" generally refers to the islands located in the Atlantic Ocean. However, there is no specific or official medical definition for this term. It may include various island groups such as:

* The Azores and Madeira (Portugal)
* The Canary Islands (Spain)
* Cape Verde Islands
* Bermuda
* The British Isles (UK)

In a medical context, the term might be used to describe health issues or characteristics specific to these island populations. For example, studies may examine the prevalence of certain genetic disorders, lifestyle diseases, or environmental health factors in Atlantic Island populations compared to mainland populations.

"Juniperus" is not a medical term itself, but it refers to a genus of evergreen coniferous trees and shrubs that belong to the cypress family (Cupressaceae). There are around 50-70 species in this genus, which are native to the northern hemisphere.

Juniperus species have been used in traditional medicine for various purposes, such as treating digestive disorders, skin conditions, and respiratory ailments. The essential oil extracted from some Juniperus species contains compounds that have antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and analgesic properties. However, it's important to note that the use of juniper in modern medicine is limited, and its efficacy and safety for specific medical conditions are not well-established.

Therefore, if you're considering using juniper or any of its preparations for medicinal purposes, it's recommended to consult a healthcare professional first to ensure its safe and appropriate use.
