Production of leukotriene B4 by Paracoccidioides brasiliensis
(Yeast, 2012-06-01) [Artigo]
Paracoccidioides brasiliensis is the agent of paracoccidioidomycosis, the most prevalent deep mycosis in Latin America. The production of eicosanoids during fungal infection has been associated with the biology of these ...
EFFECT OF LOW-DOSE COMBINED ORAL CONTRACEPTIVES ON BONE MINERAL DENSITY IN ADOLESCENTS: A 1-YEAR FOLLOW-UP
(Journal Of Adolescent Health, 2013-02-01) [Resumo]
High-frequency oscillatory ventilation attenuates oxidative lung injury in a rabbit model of acute lung injury
(Experimental Biology and Medicine, 2011-10-01) [Artigo]
Mechanical ventilation (MV) can induce lung oxidative stress, which plays an important role in pulmonary injury. This study compared protective conventional mechanical ventilation (CMV) and high-frequency oscillatory ...
PRONE POSITIONING ATTENUATES LUNG INFLAMMATORY INJURY IN AN ACUTE LUNG INJURY MODEL IN RABBITS UNDER HIGH-FREQUENCY OSCILLATORY VENTILATION
(Critical Care Medicine, 2010-12-01) [Artigo]
Comparison between procalcitonin and C-reactive protein for early diagnosis of children with sepsis or septic shock
(Inflammation Research, 2010-08-01) [Artigo]
The objective of the paper is to examine the behavior of C-reactive protein (CRP) and procalcitonin (PCT) in the first 12 h of admission and verify which performs better to differentiate children with septic conditions.Septic ...
Chronic Ethanol Consumption Alters All-Trans-Retinoic Acid Concentration and Expression of Their Receptors on the Prostate: A Possible Link Between Alcoholism and Prostate Damage
(Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research, 2013-01-01) [Artigo]
Background: Ethanol (EtOH) alters the all-trans-retinoic acid (ATRA) levels in some tissues. Retinol and ATRA are essential for cell proliferation, differentiation, and maintenance of prostate homeostasis. It has been ...
Relationship between chronological and bone ages and pubertal stage of breasts with bone biomarkers and bone mineral density in adolescents
(Jornal de Pediatria, 2014-12-01) [Artigo]
OBJECTIVE:To study bone mineral density (BMD) in adolescent females according to five groups of chronological age (CA), bone age (BA), and breast development stage (B), and to correlate these parameters with plasma bone ...
Effects of Inhaled Nitric Oxide on Oxidative Stress and Histopathological and Inflammatory Lung Injury in a Saline-Lavaged Rabbit Model of Acute Lung Injury
(Respiratory Care, 2012-02-01) [Artigo]
BACKGROUND: Conventional mechanical ventilation (CMV) is fundamental in acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) treatment. Inhaled nitric oxide (INO), an adjunctive therapy, has been used with ventilation in an attempt ...
