(Journal of Glaucoma, 2009-03-01) [Artigo]
PURPOSE: Subclinical inflammation may be observed in patients using topical antiglaucomatous drugs. The objective of this study was to investigate inflammation in conjunctiva of glaucoma patients using prostaglandin analogs, ...
Computer-assisted analysis of cell proliferation markers in oral lesions
(Acta Histochemica, 2007-01-01) [Artigo]
Abnormalities in any component of the cell cycle regulatory machine may result in oral. cancer, and markers of cell proliferation have been used to determine the prognosis of tumor progression. The aim of this study was ...
Leukocytes respiratory burst and lysozyme level in pacu (Piaractus mesopotamicus Holmberg, 1887)
(Brazilian Journal of Biology, 2009-11-01) [Artigo]
Respostas imunológicas inatas são úteis para determinar o estado de saúde de peixes e avaliar o efeito de substâncias imunomoduladoras no cultivo destes animais. A atividade respiratória de leucócitos foi medida em pacu ...
The oxidation of apocynin catalyzed by myeloperoxidase: Proposal for NADPH oxidase inhibition
(Archives of Biochemistry and Biophysics, 2007-01-15) [Artigo]
Apocynin has been used as an efficient inhibitor of the NADPH oxidase complex and its mechanism of inhibition is linked to prior activation through the action of peroxidascs. Here we studied the oxidation of apocynin ...
Human leukocyte antigen-G expression after kidney transplantation is associated with a reduced incidence of rejection
(Transplant Immunology, 2008-02-01) [Artigo]
HLA-G is a non-classic Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA-G) Class I of low polymorphism and restricted tissue distribution that displays tolerogenic functions. In heart transplantation and in combined liver/renal allograft ...
Selective activity of butyrylcholinesterase in serum by a chemiluminescent assay
(Luminescence, 2001-09-01) [Artigo]
In a previous study, we showed that purified commercial esterase activity can be detected in a chemiluminescent assay based on the hydrolysis of 2-methyl-1-propenylbenzoate (MPB) to 2-methyl-1-propenol, which is subsequently ...
Genetic relatedness of commensal strains of Candida albicans carried in the oral cavity of patients' dental prosthesis users in Brazil
(Mycopathologia, 2007-12-01) [Artigo]
The aim of this study is to describe the degree of yeast-colonization in diabetic and hemodialysed-users of dental prostheses. Individuals (306) were examined using an oral rinse technique in order to evaluate the incidence ...
Avaliação de mutagenicidade e antimutagenicidade de diferentes frações de Pterogyne nitens (Leguminosae), utilizando ensaio de micronúcleo em Tradescantia pallida

(Abstracts of Papers of the American Chemical Society, 2004-08-22) [Resumo]
p-iodophenol-enhanced luminol chemiluminescent assay applied to discrimination between acute lymphoblastic and minimally differentiated acute myeloid (FAB-M0) or acute megakaryoblastic (FAB-M7) leukemias
(Hematology Journal, 2004-01-01) [Artigo]
Introduction: In this report, we propose the application of the p-iodophenol-enhanced luminol chemiluminescent technique to the determination of peroxidase (myeloperoxidase and/or platelet peroxidase) activity in blasts ...
