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 ...
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 ...
Excess body fat negatively affects bone mass in adolescents
(Nutrition, 2014-07-01) [Artigo]
Objective: The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of excess body fat on bone mass in overweight, obese, and extremely obese adolescents.Methods: This study included 377 adolescents of both sexes, ages 10 to ...
Fructose in fetal cord blood and its relationship with maternal and 48-hour-newborn blood concentrations
(Early Human Development, 2011-03-01) [Artigo]
Background: Studies have suggested that different non-glucose sugars and sugar alcohols play a role in placental and fetal metabolism. However, the role of fructose in the fetal and newborn metabolism is unclear and studies ...
Impacto da maturação esquelética em biomarcadores do metabolismo ósseo e na densidade mineral óssea em adolescentes brasileiros saudáveis
(Jornal de Pediatria, 2011-09-01) [Artigo]
Objective: To evaluate the behavior of biomarkers of bone formation and resorption in healthy male Brazilian adolescents according to their biological maturation. Methods: Eighty-seven volunteers were divided into age ...
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 ...
