Genetic and modifying factors that determine the risk of brain tumors
(Central Nervous System Agents in Medicinal Chemistry, 2011-03-29) [Resenha]
Some modifying factors may determine the risk of brain tumors. Until now, it could not be attempted to identify people at risk and also to improve significantly disease progression. Current therapy consists of surgical ...
Inhibitory effect of deferoxamine on Paracoccidioides brasiliensis survival in human monocytes: Reversal by holotransferrin not by apotransferrin
(Revista do Instituto de Medicina Tropical de São Paulo, 2005-09-01) [Artigo]
The mechanisms used by Paracoccidioides brasiliensis to survive into phagocytic cells are not clear. Cellular iron metabolism is of critical importance to the growth of several intracellular pathogens whose capacity to ...
Correlation between cell-mediated immunity and clinical forms of paracoccidioidomycosis
(Transactions of the Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, 1985-12-01) [Artigo]
Cellular immune response to specific and non-specific stimulants was investigated, both in vivo and in vitro, in 29 healthy controls and in 53 previously untreated patients with the chronic isolated organic form (CIOF), ...
Pro- and anti-inflammatory cytokines produced by human monocytes challenged in vitro with Paracoccidioides brasiliensis
(Microbiology and Immunology, 2007-04-30) [Artigo]
Monocytes and macrophages play a central role in innate and adaptive immune response against systemic fungal infections. Imbalances in suppressor or stimulatory cytokine secretion caused by these cells may influence disease ...
