Cytokine profile of Ehrlich ascites tumor treated with Bothrops jararaca venom
(Mediators of Inflammation, 2002-08-01) [Artigo]
WE previously demonstrated that Bothrops jararaca venom (BjV) has an antitumor effect on Ehrlich ascites tumor (EAT) cells and induces an increase of polymorphonuclear leukocytes in early stages of tumor growth. It has ...
Pathological and behavioral risk factors for higher serum c-reactive protein concentrations in free-living adults - A Brazilian community-based study
(Inflammation, 2013-02-01) [Artigo]
Low-grade chronic systemic inflammation is often associated with chronic non-communicable diseases, and its most frequently used marker, the C-reactive protein (CRP), has become an identifier of such diseases as well as ...
Fine needle aspirate cell blocks are reliable for detection of hormone receptors and HER-2 by immunohistochemistry in breast carcinoma
(Cytopathology, 2013-02-01) [Artigo]
Aims: To evaluate the reliability of fine needle aspirate cell blocks in the assessment of oestrogen receptor (ER), progesterone receptor (PR) and HER-2/neu proteins by immunohistochemistry in comparison with surgical ...
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 ...
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 ...
Treatment of adriamycin-induced nephropathy with erythropoietin and G-CSF
(Journal of Nephrology, 2013-05-01) [Artigo]
Background: Granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) and Erythropoietin (EPO) are known to stimulate the growth and differentiation of progenitor cells to prevent acute renal injury. This study aimed to assess the use ...
Morphologic and biomechanical changes of thoracic and abdominal aorta in a rat model of cigarette smoke exposure
(Annals of Vascular Surgery, 2013-08-01) [Artigo]
Background: Smoking is the most relevant environmental factor that affects the development of aortic aneurysm. Smokers have elevated levels of elastase activity in the arterial wall, which leads to weakening of the aorta. ...
Effect of allopurinol in the course of adriamycin induced nephropathy
(Renal Failure, 1999-04-06) [Artigo]
The role of superoxide in adriamycin-induced nephropathy (single dose; i.v. 3 mg/kg) has been studied by blocking superoxide synthesis through the administration of allopurinol (500 mg/L in drinking water). In Experiment ...
Study on the mutagenicity and antimutagenicity of a natural food colour (annatto) in mouse bone marrow cells
(Food and Chemical Toxicology, 2003-02-01) [Artigo]
Most manufactured foods contain chemicals added as a deliberate part of the manufacturing process. The aims of the present study were to evaluate the mutagenicity and antimutagenicity of annatto, a natural pigment extracted ...
