(PLOS ONE, 2014-01-22) [Artigo]
Bladder cancer is one of the most common genitourinary neoplasms in industrialized countries. Multifocality and high recurrence rates are prominent clinical features of this disease and contribute to its high morbidity. ...
Evaluation of area contaminated by wood treatment activities: genetic markers in the environment and in the child population
(Chemosphere, 2015) [Artigo]
Wood preservation activities and related compounds are a problem since these areas have major environmental contamination liabilities which compromise the health of the surrounding population and the integrity of ecological ...
Evaluation of DNA damage and lipoperoxidation of propofol in patients undergoing elective surgery
(European Journal of Anaesthesiology, 2009-08-01) [Artigo]
Background and objectives Inhaled anaesthetics have been studied regarding their genotoxic and mutagenic potential in vivo. Propofol differs from volatile anaesthetics because it does not show mutagenic effects and it has ...
Mate attenuates DNA damage and carcinogenesis induced by diethylnitrosamine and thermal injury in rat esophagus
(Food and Chemical Toxicology, 2009-07-01) [Artigo]
Drinking hot mate has been associated with risk for esophageal cancer in South America. Thus. the aims of this study were to evaluate the modifying effects of mate intake on DNA damage and esophageal carcinogenesis induced ...
