    Copyright © 2011 ADAC. Tous droits réservés. Choreonema thuretii and Pneophyllum confervicola, two cosmopolitan species, are here recorded for the first time for the Azores. They were found during an investigation of intertidal communities in Pico Island (Azores) in the summer of 2007. Both species were found hosted in Jania rubens specimens, C. thuretii as a semi-endophytic parasite, P. confervicola as an epiphyte. They are present on other archipelagos from Macaronesia (Madeira and Canar...

    and its relationship with relevant symptoms of tumor.Methods Using convenience sampling method, the study enrolled 180 inpatients with lung cancer from the Oncology Department and the Radiotherapy Department of Tumor Hospital of Tianjin Medical Hospital from February to September 2014.Questionnaire survey was conducted with the patients.A total of 155 questionnaires were collected, with an effective returning rate of 86.1%.The questionnaire survey included a questionnaire of general data, the Pittsburgh sleep quality index ( PSQI) questionnaire and the MD Anderson symptom inventory-lung cancer (MDASI-L) questionnaire.According to PSQI score, the patients were divided into CRI group (PSQI>7) and normal group ( PSQI≤7) .Comparison was conducted between the patients and national norms in the scores of PSQI factors ( including sleep quality, sleep latency, sleep duration, habitual sleep efficiency, sleeping disturbance, use of sleeping medication, daytime dysfunction) and PSQI score; the correlation between PSQI score and each MDASI-L symptom was analyzed; comparison was made between the normal group and CRI group in the incidence and severity of each MDASI-L symptom.Results The incidence of CRI among the lung canar patients during chemotherapy was 68.4% ( 106/155 ) .The lung canar patients during chemotherapy were higher than the national norms in the score of each PSQI factor and PSQI score ( P0.05 ) .The CRI group was severer than the normal group in fatigue, nausea, distress, being short of breath, loss of appetite and conspitation ( P0.05) .Conclusion The incidence of CRI in lung cancer patients during chemotherapy is high.Cancer -related symptoms, including fatigue, nausea, distress, being short of breath, loss of appetite and constipation, should be assessed and precautioned.The alleviation of CRI may mitigate relevant symptoms of tumor.

In recent years, the country has migratory behavior of changing migratory characteristics, ranging from the gender composition, which is now more equitable, to changes in the regions of origin and destination of migrants. Thus, in the last decade the largest migration flows come from the high-productive provinces of Pichincha and Guayas, and the main destination is Spain. While the main benefit that generates phenomena of this nature is the remittance to the mother countries, its effect has not exceeded the purely economic level. In Ecuador it has achieved better results in the balance of payments, and also an increase in the consumerist levels of people, but it has also meant greater reliance of the regions from this type of income, which has stuck the autochthon productive development of the region. Additionally, the effects of variables of great importance for the socioeconomic development of nations, such as education, have not been more encouraging. The province of Canar is one of the Ecuadorian provinces to have the higher immigration history apart the highest rate of migrants over the total population, and the flow of remittances they generate represents about 70% of non-oil gross value added. But these features have not
