Potential endocrinedisruptor activity of drinking water samples
(Endocrine Disruptors, 2015) [Artigo]
Conventional water treatment plants (WTP) do not completely remove contaminants with endocrine activity which may then be present in drinking water (DW). The potential for endocrine disruption of 2 DW samples collected in ...
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 ...
Chemical carcinogenesis - mode of action to inform quantitative human risk
(BMC Proceedings, 2013-04-04) [Artigo]
Modulation of cytokines production by indomethacin acute dose during the evolution of ehrlich ascites tumor in mice
(Mediators Of Inflammation, 2015) [Artigo]
The aim of the present study was to investigate the influence of a nonselective COX1/COX2 inhibitor (indomethacin) on tumor growth of Ehrlich Ascites Tumor (EAT) in mice, using as parameters the tumor growth and cytokine ...
Plasma glutathione of HIV+ patients responded positively and differently to dietary supplementation with cysteine or glutamine
(Nutrition, 2012-07-01) [Artigo]
Objective: Patients with positivity for the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) present low concentrations of antioxidant nutrients, including total glutathione (GSH) and its precursors. We investigated the responses of the ...
Ischemic postconditioning and subanesthetic S(+)-Ketamine infusion: effects on renal function and histology in rats
(BioMed Research International, 2015) [Artigo]
Background. Ischemic postconditioning (IP) in renal Ischemia reperfusion injury (IRI) models improves renal function after IRI. Ketamine affords significant benefits against IRI-induced acute kidney injury (AKI). The present ...
Citral and eugenol modulate DNA damage and pro-inflammatory mediator genes in murine peritoneal macrophages
(Molecular Biology Reports, 2014-11-01) [Artigo]
Citral and eugenol have been broadly studied because of their anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antiparasitic potentials. In this study, the effects of citral (25, 50 and 100 mu g/mL) and eugenol (0.31, 0.62, 1.24 and ...
Is breath testing without 13C-labelled external urea able to detect Helicobacter pylori infection?
(Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry, 2019-09-01) [Artigo]
Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection is the main cause of gastric inflammation and peptic ulcer disease. Diagnosis and treatment are important to prevent these outcomes. The diagnosis of H. pylori infection can be ...
Transcriptional Profile of Diuron-Induced Toxicity on the Urinary Bladder of Male Wistar Rats to Inform Mode of Action
(Toxicological Sciences, 2011-08-01) [Artigo]
Diuron (3-(3,4-dichlorophenyl)-1,1-dimethylurea) is a substituted urea herbicide that induces rat urinary bladder urothelial tumors at high dietary levels (2500 ppm). The specific mode of action and molecular alterations ...
Cell adhesion and growth on surfaces modified by plasma and ion implantation
(Journal of Applied Physics, 2014-04-21) [Artigo]
In this study, we show and discuss the results of the interaction of living CHO (Chinese Hamster Ovary) cells, in terms of adhesion and growth on glass, SU-8 (epoxi photoresist), PDMS (polydimethylsiloxane), and DLC (hydrogen ...
