Paulo Eneas Galvão

Paulo Eneas Galvão, Brazilian physiologist (Petrópolis, Rio de Janeiro State 08 June 1902 - São Paulo 12 January 1978)
 
Authored about 50 works 
 

Obtained international recognition for his studies on metabolism in tropical zones and vitamin B role in cell oxidations of nervous tissues


Showed the role that plays the vitamin B in cell oxidations of nervous tissue with international attention 

With D.M. Cardoso. Estudos sobre as oxidações na avitaminose B e no jejum. Arch. Inst. Biol. 3:219-48, 1930

With J. Pereira Jr. Uber den Einfluss der Milchsaure auf die Gehirnatmung der Saugetiere bei avitaminose B. Bioch. Z. 289:136-42, 1936

With J. Pereira Jr. Quociente de oxidação de acido láctico do isthmo do encéfalo de aves normais e em avitaminose B1. Arqu. Inst. Biol. 1940.  

With J. Pereira Jr. developed a technique for dog central nervous system deprivation by compression with sodium chloride hypertonic solution (1942)

 
Showed that the Rubner-Richet surface law is not applicable to the inhabitants of tropical zone 
Sobre a aplicação intraespecífica da lei da superfície nas regiões tropicais. Thesis, Instituto Biológico, São Paulo (1942)

Human heat production in relation to body weight and body surface. I. Inapplicability of the surface law on men of the tropical zone. J. Appl. Physiol. 1:385-94, 1948 

Human heat production in relation to body weight and body surface. II. Inapplicability of the surface law on men of the tropical zone. J. Appl. Physiol. 1:395, 1948 

Human heat production in relation to body weight and body surface. III. Inapplicability of the surface law on men of the tropical zone. J. Appl. Physiol. 3:21-8, 1950  

 

Proved that human oxygen uptake rate in tropical zones depends on metabolically active weight

 

Demonstrated that basal metabolism should be computed by hour and kilogram of metabolically active tissue (p=P0,83), being P the weight in kilograms

Produção de calor em relação ao peso e a superfície corporal. Arqu. Inst. Biol. 1951-2

 
Developed a method for dosage of lactic acid
With C. H. Florence & J. Pereira. Modificação do método permanganico-iodo-metrico para a dosagem do acido latico. Arch. Inst. Biol. 9:39-50, 1938.
