Paracoccidioides brasiliensis-gp43 used as paracoccidioidin
(Journal of Medical and Veterinary Mycology, 1996-12-01) [Artigo]
A purified glycoprotein of 43 000 daltons from Paracoccidioides brasiliensis (gp43) was tested as paracoccidioidin in delayed-type hypersensitivity (DTH) tests in both experimental animals (guinea pig and mice) and patients ...
Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus infection and Kaposi's sarcoma in Brazil
(Brazilian Journal of Medical and Biological Research, 2006-05-01) [Artigo]
Kaposi's sarcoma (KS) became a critical health issue with the emergence of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) in the 1980s. Four clinical-epidemiological forms of KS have been described: classical KS, endemic ...
Paracoccidioides brasiliensis antigen batches from the same isolate show immunological and biochemical differences
(Mycopathologia, 1996-12-01) [Artigo]
We investigated the occurrence of antigenic and biochemical variability among Paracoccidioides brasiliensis antigen batches prepared according to the same protocol. Initially (experiment 1), we analyzed two antigen lots ...

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 ...
Expression of beta-human chorionic gonadotropin (beta-hCG) in non-trophoblastic elements of transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder: possible relationship with the prognosis.
(Revista Paulista de Medicina, 1993-05-01) [Artigo]
Transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) of the bladder is a neoplasm with variability in its clinical behavior. Although there are several studies correlating stage and ABO isoantigen expression with invasiveness, there is no ...
Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus latency-associated nuclear antigen 1 mimics Epstein-Barr virus EBNA1 immune evasion through central repeat domain effects on protein processing
(Journal of Virology, 2007-08-01) [Artigo]
Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV/human herpesvirus 8 [HHV8]) and Epstein-Barr virus (EBV/HHV4) are distantly related gammaherpesviruses causing tumors in humans. KSHV latency-associated nuclear antigen 1 (LANA1) ...
Antitumor properties of Ganoderma lucidum polysaccharides and terpenoids
(Annual Review of Biomedical Sciences, 2011-12-01) [Artigo]
Ganoderma lucidum is an edible medicinal mushroom with immunomodulatory and antitumor properties, which are mainly attributed to polysaccharides and triterpenes that can be isolated from mycelia, fruiting bodies and spores. ...
Mushroom-derived preparations in the prevention of H2O2-induced oxidative damage to cellular DNA
(Teratogenesis Carcinogenesis and Mutagenesis, 2002-03-06) [Artigo]
Aqueous extracts of the sporophores of eight mushroom species were assessed for their ability to prevent H2O2-induced oxidative damage to cellular DNA using the single-cell gel electrophoresis (Comet) assay. The highest ...
Do Atopobium vaginae, Megasphaera sp. and Leptotrichia sp. change the local innate immune response and sialidase activity in bacterial vaginosis?
(Sexually Transmitted Infections, 2013-03-01) [Artigo]
Objectives: To investigate if the participation of Atopobium vaginae, Megasphaera sp. and Leptotrichia sp. in the bacterial community of bacterial vaginosis (BV) is associated with distinct patterns of this condition. ...
