Differential morphofunctional characteristics and gene expression in fast and slow muscle of rats with monocrotaline-induced heart failure
(Journal of Molecular Histology, 2011-06-01) [Artigo]
Heart failure (HF) is characterized by limited exercise tolerance, skeletal muscle atrophy, a shift toward fast muscle fiber, and myogenic regulatory factor (MRF) changes. Reactive oxygen species (ROS) also contribute to ...
The possible role of selenium status in adverse pregnancy outcomes
(British Journal of Nutrition, 2011-05-01) [Artigo]
The present study reviews the possible role of Se status during pregnancy regarding adverse pregnancy outcomes, with emphasis on those related to diminished antioxidant activity and increased oxidative stress. Studies have ...

(Arquivos de Gastroenterologia, 2014-09-01) [Artigo]
Context Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are considered one of the most important causes of reactivation of inflammatory bowel disease. With regard to selective cyclo-oxygenase 2 inhibitors, the results are controversial ...
Nutritional and metabolic risk factors for insulin resistance in adults
(International Journal of Nutrition and Metabolism, 2011) [Artigo]
The purpose of this study is to investigate the association of insulin resistance (IR) with dietary, fitness, anthropometric and other components of Metabolic Syndrome (MS) in adult participants. Crosssectional study of ...
Diabetes mellitus activates fetal gene program and intensifies cardiac remodeling and oxidative stress in aged spontaneously hypertensive rats
(Cardiovascular Diabetology, 2013-10-17) [Artigo]
Background: The combination of systemic arterial hypertension and diabetes mellitus (DM) induces greater cardiac remodeling than either condition alone. However, this association has been poorly addressed in senescent rats. ...
Tobacco Smoke Induces Ventricular Remodeling Associated with an Increase in NADPH Oxidase Activity
(Cellular Physiology and Biochemistry, 2011-01-01) [Artigo]
Background: Recent studies have assessed the direct effects of smoking on cardiac remodeling and function. However, the mechanisms of these alterations remain unknown. The aim of this study was to investigate de role of ...
