New insights regarding HCV-NS5A structure/function and indication of genotypic differences
(Virology Journal, 2012-01-12) [Artigo]
Background: HCV is prevalent throughout the world. It is a major cause of chronic liver disease. There is no effective vaccine and the most common therapy, based on Peginterferon, has a success rate of similar to 50%. The ...
Relation of pretreatment sequence diversity in NS5A region of HCV genotype 1 with immune response between pegylated-INF/ribavirin therapy outcomes
(Journal of Viral Hepatitis, 2011-02-01) [Artigo]
Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection frequently persists despite substantial virus-specific immune responses and the combination of pegylated interferon (INF)-alpha and ribavirin therapy. Major histocompatibility complex class ...
COD, TSS, NUTRIENTS AND COLIFORMS REMOVALS IN UASB REACTORS IN TWO STAGES TREATING SWINE WASTEWATER
(Engenharia Agricola, 2014-11-01) [Artigo]
The performance of two upflow anaerobic sludge blanket (UASB) reactors was evaluated in pilot scale (908 and 188 L), installed in series (R1 and R2), fed with swine wastewater with TSS around 5 and 13 g L-1. The UASB ...

The dissemination of multiresistant Klebsiella pneumoniae carbapenemase (KPC)-2-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae isolates belonging to international high-risk clones poses a major health care threat. In this study, 48 ...
Functional traits and environmental conditions predict community isotopic niches and energy pathways across spatial scales
(Functional Ecology, 2018-10-01) [Artigo]
Despite ongoing research in food web ecology and functional biogeography, the links between food web structure, functional traits and environmental conditions across spatial scales remain poorly understood. Trophic niches, ...
How Does Oocyte Uptake Occur? A Macroscopic Study of the Ovarian and Oviductal Modifications for Egg Capture in the Coral-Snake Micrurus corallinus
(Anatomical Record, 2018-11-01) [Artigo]
The processes of follicular development, ovulation, egg capture, and egg transport vary among vertebrates. Therefore, analysis of the reproductive tract of several lineages is needed for understanding the evolutionary ...
