Improvement in clinical signs and cellular immunity of dogs with visceral leishmaniasis using the immunomodulator P-MAPA
(Acta Tropica, 2013-09-01) [Artigo]
This study investigated the immunotherapeutic potential of the protein aggregate magnesium-ammonium phospholinoleate-palmitoleate anhydride immuno-modulator (P-MAPA) on canine visceral leishmaniasis. Twenty mongrel dogs ...

(Brazilian Journal of Veterinary Pathology, 2012-11-01) [Artigo]
Mast cell tumor manifests as a localized proliferation of mast cells in the skin, or less frequently as a systemic disorder, which may be accompanied by the presence of neoplastic mast cells in the peripheral blood ...
Avaliação hematológica de cães naturalmente infectados por Leishmania (Leishmania) chagasi submetidos a tratamento com antimoniato de meglumina
(Brazilian Journal of Veterinary Research and Animal Science, 2008-12-01) [Artigo]
The present research was carried out aiming to assess the hematological response of dogs with visceral leishmaniasis submitted to treatment. For this, seven animals naturally infected by Leishmania sp. were submitted to a ...
Neutrophil dysfunction varies with the stage of canine visceral leishmaniosis
(Veterinary Parasitology, 2013-09-01) [Artigo]
Canine visceral leishmaniosis (CVL) causes a dependent-stage alteration in neutrophil oxidative metabolism. When production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) exceeds the antioxidant capacity of neutrophils, apoptosis is ...
High concentrations of glucose reduce the oxidative metabolism of dog neutrophils in vitro
(BMC Veterinary Research, 2013-02-06) [Artigo]
Background: Dogs are commonly affected by hyperglycemic conditions. Hyperglycemia compromises the immune response and favors bacterial infections; however, reports on the effects of glucose on neutrophil oxidative metabolism ...
