Systemic hypertension in patients with glomerulonephritis
(Renal Failure, 2002-08-14) [Artigo]
Although systemic hypertension is very common in patients with glomerulonephritis there is a dispute if this alteration is consequence of the glomerulonephritis per se or is a consequence of the renal failure secondary to ...
Food restriction-induced myocardial dysfunction demonstrated by the combination of in vivo and in vitro studies
(Nutrition Research, 2002-11-01) [Artigo]
The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that protein-calorie undernutrition decreases myocardial contractility jeopardizing ventricular function, and that ventricular dysfunction can be detected noninvasively. ...
Hodgkin disease in adult and juvenile groups from two different geographic regions in Brazil: Characterization of clinicopathologic aspects and relationship with Epstein-Barr virus infection
(American Journal of Clinical Pathology, 2002-07-17) [Artigo]
We analyzed clinicopathologic data, immunophenotype, and Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) status in 96 cases of Hodgkin disease (HD) in juveniles (younger than 20 years) and adults (20 years or older) from 2 distinctive states in ...
Improved systolic ventricular function with normal myocardial mechanics in compensated cardiac hypertrophy
(Journal of Medicine, 2002-12-01) [Artigo]
There still controversy about the relation between changes in myocardial contractile function and global left ventricular (LV) performance during stable concentric hypertrophy. To clarify this, we analyzed LV function in ...
The silent period in patients with chronic renal failure undergoing hemodialysis
(Electromyography and Clinical Neurophysiology, 2002-01-01) [Artigo]
Silent period was evaluated in 20 adult male patients with chronic renal failure undergoing hemodialysis. Readings were obtained by supramaximal stimulus to the median nerve, during maximum isometric effort of the abductor ...
Cytokine profile of Ehrlich ascites tumor treated with Bothrops jararaca venom
(Mediators of Inflammation, 2002-08-01) [Artigo]
WE previously demonstrated that Bothrops jararaca venom (BjV) has an antitumor effect on Ehrlich ascites tumor (EAT) cells and induces an increase of polymorphonuclear leukocytes in early stages of tumor growth. It has ...
