(Environmental And Molecular Mutagenesis, 2014-09-01) [Resumo]
Mononuclear inflammatory infiltrate and microcirculation injury in acute rejection: Role in renal allograft survival
(Renal Failure, 2013-05-22) [Artigo]
This study aimed at investigating associations between monocytes/ macrophages (Mo) infiltration and three important criteria associated with acute antibody-mediated rejection: C4d staining, microcirculation injury, and ...
Lycopene supplementation reduces TNF-alpha via RAGE in the kidney of obese rats
(Nutrition & Diabetes, 2014-11-01) [Artigo]
The kidney is a target organ for injuries caused by advanced glycation end products (AGEs) in obesity. The receptor of AGEs (RAGE) is proinflammatory and appears to have a role in the pathogenesis of renal disease due to ...
Renal interstitial foam cells are macrophages
(Histopathology, 1992-01-01) [Artigo]
Immunohistochemical studies on renal biopsies from eight patients with various types of glomerulonephritis showed that the interstitial foam cells belonged to the monocyte-macrophage lineage. There was a strong association ...
TROMBOSE VENOSA EXPERIMENTAL NA COBAIA: EFEITO DA HEPARINA E DE DROGAS QUE ALTERAM A FUNCAO PLAQUETARIA
(Brazilian Journal of Medical and Biological Research, 1977-12-01) [Artigo]
Thrombosis was induced in the jugular vein of guinea pigs by damage of the epithelium with a sclerosing solution. The effect of heparin, Dextran 70, acetylsalicylic acid, dipyridamole and phenylbutazone in preventing the ...
Altered maternal metabolism during mild gestational hyperglycemia as a predictor of adverse perinatal outcomes: A comprehensive analysis
(Biochimica et Biophysica Acta - Molecular Basis of Disease, 2019-01-01) [Resenha]
Mild gestational hyperglycemia (MGH), as assessed using the normal oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) and detection of an altered glycemic profile, is associated with adverse perinatal outcome. This study described the ...
Screening for In Vitro and In Vivo Antitumor Activities of the Mushroom Agaricus Blazei
(Nutrition and Cancer-an International Journal, 2009-01-01) [Artigo]
We have investigated the in vitro antitumor activity of the mushroom Agaricus blazei Murill on human cancer cell lines as well as its potential anticancer activity in a model of rat colon carcinogenesis. The in vitro ...
Chronic ethanol intake promotes double gluthatione S-transferase transforming growth factor-alpha-positive hepatocellular lesions in male Wistar rats
(Cancer Science, 2008-02-01) [Artigo]
The chronic ethanol intake influence on the gluthatione S-transferase (GST-P) and transforming growth factor alpha (TGF-alpha) expression in remodeling/persistent preneoplastic lesions (PNLs) was evaluated in the resistant ...
Cytotoxic action of Brazilian propolis in vitro on canine osteosarcoma cells
(Phytotherapy Research, 2013-09-01) [Artigo]
Osteosarcoma (OSA) is a primary bone neoplasm frequently diagnosed in dogs. The biology of OSA in pet dogs is identical to that of pediatric patients, and it has been considered an excellent model in vivo to study human ...
Antigenic similarities to Paracoccidioides brasiliensis in thermo-dependent dimorphic fungi isolated from soil in Botucatu, SP, Brazil
(Mycopathologia, 1997-01-01) [Artigo]
We compared the antigenic characteristics of two thermo-dependent dimorphic fungi isolated from soil in Botucatu, an endemic area of paracoccidioidomycosis (PCM) and Paracoccidioides brasiliensis. The soil isolates grew ...
