First-void versus midstream urine culture for detection of Ureaplasma urealyticum in the urinary tract
(Revista de Microbiologia, 1995-07-01) [Artigo]
Quantitative Ureaplasma urealyticum culture was performed on clean first-void and midstream urine to evaluate the presence of these mollicutes in the urinary tract. The results, expressed as color changing units (CCU), ...
Infection and apparent invasion of Vero cells by Paracoccidioides brasiliensis
(Journal of Medical and Veterinary Mycology, 1994-01-01) [Artigo]
Paracoccidioides brasiliensis probably uses many different mechanisms to establish itself in the host and cause disease. In this work, we assess an in vitro model system which uses cultured mammalian cells to investigate ...
SISTEMAS QUIMILUMINESCENTES COM PEROXIDASE (EC:220.127.116.11) E SUAS APLICACOES EM ANALISES CLINICAS
(Revista de Ciencias Farmaceuticas, 1995-01-01) [Resenha]
The enzyme horseradish peroxidase HRP (EC:18.104.22.168), has both acid and basic isoenzymes, catalyses a wide range of reactions (acting as an oxiredutase or an oxidase) and is thought capable of one- or two-electrons oxidations ...
COMPARACAO ENTRE MEDICAMENTOS ORAIS ATRAVES DAS TAXAS SERICAS DE GLICOSE, AMILASE, ACIDOS GRAXOS LIVRES E LIPOPROTEINAS DE ALTA DENSIDADE (HDL-COLESTEROL) NOS DIABETICOS DE AMBOS OS SEXOS, DA REGIAO DE ARARAQUARA, NAO-DEPENDENTES DE INSULINA
(Revista de Ciencias Farmaceuticas, 1993-12-01) [Artigo]
A study was carried out, on both sexes, to determine the effects of chlorpropamide (DIABINESE) and glibenclamide (DAONIL) on patients with Type II diabetes using as metabolic parameters the following serum: glucose, amilase, ...
Isolamento e caracterização de candida albicans e outras leveduras de águas de recreação não marinha e de materiais clínicos
(Revista de Ciencias Farmaceuticas, 1995-01-01) [Artigo]
Candida albicans and other yeasts from recreational water or clinical materials were isolated. Sixty-six water samples, originating from eight swimming pools and five lakes with beaches were examined for the presence of ...
ESTUDO DA ATIVIDADE DE EXTRATOS VEGETAIS SOBRE O DESENVOLVIMENTO DE TRYPANOSOMA CRUZI EM MEIO LIQUIDO DE WARREN

Host organism defense by a peptide-polysaccharide extracted from the fungus Sporothrix schenckii
(Mycopathologia, 1998-01-01) [Artigo]
A peptide-polysaccharide, a peptide-rhamnomannan, was isolated from the pathogenic yeast form of the fungus Sporothrix schenckii. This substance, which may play a role in fungal virulence, was tested in an animal model of ...
AGAR MEDIUM FOR HUMAN UREAPLASMA UREALYTICUM
(Revista de Microbiologia, 1992-07-01) [Artigo]
The authors wish to report a simple medium for the isolation and cultivation of Ureaplasma urealyticum starting from clinical materials. This medium induced growth in eleven of the twelve different serotypes of Ureaplasma ...
Characterization of myeloid or lymphoid acute leukemia by a chemiluminescence assay: Comparison with immunocytochemistry using an antimyeloperoxidase antibody
(Acta Haematologica, 1993-01-01) [Artigo]
A simple and sensitive chemiluminescence assay for the demonstration of the activity of intracellular myeloperoxidase (MPO) is described, which is useful for the distinction between myeloid and lymphoid commitment in blasts ...
Isolation of ergosterol peroxide and its reversion to ergosterol in the pathogenic fungus Sporothrix schenckii
(Mycopathologia, 1997-12-01) [Artigo]
Ergosterol peroxide, a presumed product of the H2O2-dependent enzymatic oxidation of ergosterol, has been isolated from yeast from yeast forms of the pathogenic fungus Sporothrix schenckii. The substance, which may have a ...
