(Mycopathologia, 2016-04-01) [Artigo]
The response of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and cytokines during an experimental sporotrichosis in male Swiss mice was assessed over a period of 10 weeks by monitoring macrophage activation challenged with exoantigen (ExoAg) ...
Efficacy and safety of immunological adjuvants. Where is the cut-off?
(Biomedicine and Pharmacotherapy, 2018-09-01) [Resenha]
Research over the past several decades has provided insight into the mode of action of adjuvants. However, the main focus of attention has been the efficacy in the induction of protective immunogenicity, while less effort ...
A Low-Cost Label-Free AFB(1) Impedimetric Immunosensor Based on Functionalized CD-Trodes
(Chemosensors, 2016-09-01) [Artigo]
This work describes the investigation of a label-free immunosensor for the detection of aflatoxin B-1 (AFB(1)). CD-trodes (electrodes obtained from recordable compact disks) were used as low-cost and disposable transducers ...
