Indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase (IDO) Activity in Placental Compartments of Renal-Transplanted Pregnant Women
(American Journal of Reproductive Immunology, 2014-07-01) [Artigo]
Problem Immunosuppressive drugs change gestational IDO activity at the maternal-fetal interface. Method of Study Analysis of placental IDO expression and activity, interferon gamma (IFN-), and IL-10 expression and NFkB ...
Vitamin C partially attenuates male reproductive deficits in hyperglycemic rats
(Reproductive Biology and Endocrinology, 2011-07-27) [Artigo]
Background: Hyperglycemia can impair the male reproductive system in experimental animals and in men during reproductive age. Studies have shown that vitamin C has some good effects on male reproductive system, and therefore ...
Can vitamins C and E restore the androgen level and hypersensitivity of the vas deferens in hyperglycemic rats?
(Pharmacological Reports, 2011-07-01) [Artigo]
Diabetic neuropathy can affect the male reproductive system. The aim of this study was therefore to evaluate whether antioxidant (vitamins C and/or E) treatment could attenuate reproductive dysfunctions in hyperglycemic ...
Glutamate-induced obesity leads to decreased sperm reserves and acceleration of transit time in the epididymis of adult male rats
(Reproductive Biology and Endocrinology, 2012-12-05) [Artigo]
Background: Given the established fact that obesity interferes with male reproductive functions, the present study aimed to evaluate sperm production in the testis and storage in the epididymis in a glutamate-induced model ...
Serum and placental plgf expression in women with different levels of hyperglycemia
(Placenta, 2015-04-01) [Resumo]
Single CpG island methylation is not sufficient to maintain the silenced expression of CASPASE-8 apoptosis-related gene among women with epithelial ovarian cancer
(Biomedicine & Pharmacotherapy, 2014-02-01) [Artigo]
Despite impressive research efforts, the biology of epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) remains poorly understood and alterations in the expression of CASPASE-8 contribute to a worse tumor prognosis. This study assesses the ...
The Role of Cytokines in the Functional Activity of Phagocytes in Blood and Colostrum of Diabetic Mothers
(Clinical & Developmental Immunology, 2013-01-01) [Artigo]
Immune response changes induced by diabetes are a risk factor for infections during pregnancy and may modify the development of the newborn's immune system. The present study analyzed colostrum and maternal and cord blood ...
Changing presentation of complete hydatidiform mole at the New England Trophoblastic Disease Center over the past three decades: does early diagnosis alter risk for gestational trophoblastic neoplasia?
(Gynecologic Oncology, 2015-07-01) [Artigo]
Objective. To compare the clinical presentation and incidence of postmolar gestational trophoblastic neoplasia (GTN) among recent (1994-2013) and historical (1988-1993) cases of complete hydatidiform mole (CHM).Methods. ...
Genetic polymorphisms associated with steroids metabolism and insulin action in polycystic ovary syndrome
(Gynecological Endocrinology, 2012-03-01) [Artigo]
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is an endocrinopathy associated with infertility, diabetes and cardiovascular events. This study aimed to correlate polymorphisms of genes involved in the biosynthesis and metabolism of ...
