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 ...
Inflammatory cytokine mRNA detection by real time PCR in chorioamniotic membranes from pregnant women with preterm premature rupture of membranes
(European Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology and Reproductive Biology, 2009-05-01) [Artigo]
Objective: To quantify the expression of interleukin (IL)-1 beta, IL-6, IL-8 and tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha) in chorioamniotic membranes of PPROM pregnant women with chorioamnionits.Study design: The study ...

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 ...

Tobacco smoke contains a large number of substances known to induce DNA damage and to be hazardous to human health. Several reviews and meta-analyses have reported an association between maternal or paternal smoking habits ...
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 ...
