Effect of Brazilian propolis on experimental hepatotoxicity in rats
(Revista de Ciencias Farmaceuticas, 2004-12-01) [Artigo]
Propolis (bee glue) is one of the major hive products of bees and is rich in flavonoids, which are known for their antioxidant activities. The aim of this study was to evaluate the hepatoprotective effects of the ethanolic ...
Genetic vaccine for tuberculosis (pVAXhsp65) primes neonate mice for a strong immune response at the adult stage
(Genetic Vaccines and Therapy, 2007-11-29) [Artigo]
Background: Vaccination of neonates is generally difficult due to the immaturity of the immune system and consequent higher susceptibility to tolerance induction. Genetic immunization has been described as an alternative ...

Population analysis of susceptibility to propolis in reference strains of Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli
(Journal of Venomous Animals and Toxins, 1997-01-01) [Artigo]
Susceptibility to several ethanolic extracts of propolis (EEP) concentrations was tested with the population analysis technique in reference strains of Staphylococcus aureus (ATCC 25923) and Escherichia coli (ATCC 35218). ...
Role of natural killer cells in antitumor resistance
(Annual Review of Biomedical Sciences, 2005-12-01) [Artigo]
Natural killer cells constitute a population of lymphocytes able to non-specifically destroy virus-infected and some kinds of tumor cells. Since this lytic activity was shown by non-immunized animals the phenomenon is ...
Tissue distribution of a plasmid DNA encoding Hsp65 gene is dependent on the dose administered through intramuscular delivery
(Genetic Vaccines and Therapy, 2006-01-30) [Artigo]
In order to assess a new strategy of DNA vaccine for a more complete understanding of its action in immune response, it is important to determine the in vivo biodistribution fate and antigen expression. In previous studies, ...
Antitumor properties of Ganoderma lucidum polysaccharides and terpenoids
(Annual Review of Biomedical Sciences, 2011-12-01) [Artigo]
Ganoderma lucidum is an edible medicinal mushroom with immunomodulatory and antitumor properties, which are mainly attributed to polysaccharides and triterpenes that can be isolated from mycelia, fruiting bodies and spores. ...
Evaluation of Paracoccidioides brasiliensis exoantigen in the detection of delayed dermal hypersensitivity in experimental and human paracoccidioidomycosis
(Journal of Medical and Veterinary Mycology, 1996-10-19) [Artigo]
The exoantigen of Paracoccidioides brasiliensis standardized by Camargo et al.  (AgR) was used to evaluate the in vivo and in vitro cell immune response of experimental animals and of patients with paracoccidioidomycosis ...
