ACAT-1 gene rs1044925 SNP and its relation with different clinical forms of chronic Chagas disease
(Parasitology Research, 2019-08-01) [Artigo]
Chagas disease, caused by the protozoan Trypanosoma cruzi (T. cruzi), although discovered more than a century ago, is still a not very well-elucidated aspect. Individuals in the chronic phase of the disease may present ...
BONE BIOMARKERS and BONE MINERAL DENSITY IN HEALTHY MALE ADOLESCENTS: IMPACT of BIOLOGICAL MATURATION
(Acta Paediatrica, 2009-10-01) [Artigo]
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 ...
Bone metabolism biomarkers, body weight, and bone age in healthy Brazilian male adolescents
(Journal of Pediatric Endocrinology & Metabolism, 2012-06-01) [Artigo]
Eighty-seven male volunteers were grouped according to bone age (BA): 10-12 years (n=25), 13-15 years (n=36), and 16-18 years (n=26), and the following were recorded for each: weight (kg), height (m), BMI (kg/m(2)), calcium ...
Cytokines released from blood monocytes and expressed in mucocutaneous lesions of patients with paracoccidioidomycosis evaluated before and during trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole treatment
(British Journal of Dermatology, 2006-04-01) [Artigo]
Background Mucocutaneous lesions in paracoccidioidomycosis are granulomatous and result from tissue responses to Paracoccidioides brasiliensis, the aetiological agent.Objectives and methods In this study we investigate the ...
Differential behavior of non-albicans Candida species in the central nervous system of immunocompetent and immunosuppressed mice
(Frontiers in Microbiology, 2019-01-01) [Artigo]
The genus Candida includes commensal fungi that can cause local and systemic infections, frequently involving vital organs as the central nervous system (CNS). Candida spp. occupy the fourth place among infections that ...
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 ...
Do metabolic syndrome and its components have an impact on bone mineral density in adolescents?
(Nutrition and Metabolism, 2017-01-04) [Resenha]
In recent years, there has been growing concern about the occurrence of metabolic syndrome (MetS) at an early age and its effects on bone mass in adolescents. Adolescence is considered a critical period for bone mass gain. ...
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 ...
