In situ expression of mononuclear cell markers and interleukin-2 receptor in renal allograft biopsies of acute rejection and borderline cases
(Renal Failure, 2007-01-01) [Artigo]
The correct diagnosis of renal allograft rejection may be difficult using only clinical and/or histopathological criteria. Immunological assays should be considered in order to evaluate the phenotype of inflammatory ...
Does troncular vagotomy modify the proliferative gastric lesions induced in rats by duodenogastric reflux?
(Acta Cirúrgica Brasileira, 2007-05-01) [Artigo]
Purpose: to investigate if combining VT to DGR through the pylorus can modulate the biological behavior of PL induced by DGR and to verify if TV alone can induce morphologic lesions in the gastric mucosa. Methods: 62 male ...
