(Food Research International, 2015-07-01) [Artigo]
This study aimed to investigate the effect of a synbiotic fermented soy product supplemented with okara (a by-product from soybean) on cardiovascular disease risk markers in healthy men. In a randomized, double-blinded, ...
Optimal clearance of Sporothrix schenckii requires an intact Th17 response in a mouse model of systemic infection
(Immunobiology, 2015-08-01) [Artigo]
The discovery of Th17 cells, along with many other Th cell subsets in the recent years, has expanded the Th1/Th2 paradigm that had persisted since its proposition by Mosmann in 1986. Defined by the characteristic expression ...
Applications of invertebrate animal models to dimorphic fungal infections
(Journal of Fungi, 2018-01-01) [Resenha]
Dimorphic fungi can be found in the yeast form during infection and as hyphae in the environment and are responsible for a large number of infections worldwide. Invertebrate animals have been shown to be convenient models ...
High-fat diet increases respiratory frequency and abdominal expiratory motor activity during hypercapnia
(Respiratory Physiology and Neurobiology, 2018-12-01) [Artigo]
Breathing disorders are commonly observed in association with obesity. Here we tested whether high-fat diet (HFD) impairs the chemoreflex ventilatory response. Male Holtzman rats (300–320 g) were fed with standard chow ...
Fungal biofilms and polymicrobial diseases
(Journal of Fungi, 2017-06-01) [Resenha]
Biofilm formation is an important virulence factor for pathogenic fungi. Both yeasts and filamentous fungi can adhere to biotic and abiotic surfaces, developing into highly organized communities that are resistant to ...
