Impact of resistance to fluconazole on virulence and morphological aspects of Cryptococcus neoformans and Cryptococcus gattii isolates
(Frontiers in Microbiology, 2016-02-16) [Artigo]
Cryptococcus sp. are responsible for around 1 million cases of meningitis every year. Fluconazole (FLU) is commonly used in the treatment of cryptococcosis, mainly in immunocompromised patients and the resistance is usually ...
Peptides derived from a phage display library inhibit adhesion and protect the host against infection by Paracoccidioides brasiliensis and Paracoccidioides lutzii
(Frontiers in Pharmacology, 2016-01-01) [Artigo]
Paracoccidioides brasiliensis and Paracoccidioides lutzii are dimorphic fungi and are the etiological agents of paracoccidioidomycosis (PCM). Adhesion is one of the most important steps in infections with Paracoccidioides ...
ASSESSMENT OF IMIQUIMODE, ALONE OR IN ASSOCIATION WITH ITRACONAZOL, AS AN ALTERNATIVE FOR SPOROTRICHOSIS THERAPY
(Cytokine, 2016-11-01) [Resumo]
Anti-Immune Strategies of Pathogenic Fungi
(Frontiers In Cellular And Infection Microbiology, 2016-11-15) [Resenha]
Pathogenic fungi have developed many strategies to evade the host immune system. Multiple escape mechanisms appear to function together to inhibit attack by the various stages of both the adaptive and the innate immune ...

(Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry, 2016-06-01) [Artigo]
Combretum lanceolatum flowers ethanol extract inhibits hepatic gluconeogenesis: an in vivo mechanism study
(Pharmaceutical Biology, 2016-09-01) [Artigo]
Context Ethnopharmacological studies have demonstrated that plants of the Combretum genus presented antidiabetic activity, including Combretum lanceolatum Pohl ex Eichler (Combretaceae). Objective This study investigated ...
Antifungal activity of plant-derived essential oils on Candida tropicalis planktonic and biofilms cells
(Medical Mycology, 2016-07-01) [Artigo]
Dental prosthesis supports Candida species growth and may predispose the oral cavity to lesions. C. tropicalis has emerged as a colonizer of prosthesis and has shown resistance to clinically used antifungal agents, which ...
Virulence of Cryptococcus sp Biofilms In Vitro and In Vivo using Galleria mellonella as an Alternative Model
(Frontiers In Microbiology, 2016-03-09) [Artigo]
Cryptococcus neoformans and C. gattii are fungal pathogens that are most commonly found in infections of the central nervous system, which cause life-threatening meningoencephalitis and can grow as a biofilm. Biofilms are ...
Cytotoxicity and genotoxicity of calcium silicate-based cements on an osteoblast lineage
(Brazilian oral research, 2016-05-20) [Artigo]
Several calcium silicate-based biomaterials have been developed in recent years, in addition to Mineral Trioxide Aggregate (MTA). The aim of this study was to evaluate the cytotoxicity, genotoxicity and apoptosis/necrosis ...
Effectiveness of photoelectrocatalysis treatment for the inactivation of Candida parapsilosis sensu stricto in planktonic cultures and biofilms
(Applied Catalysis A: General, 2016-02-05) [Artigo]
Photoelectrocatalysis (PEC) has become an attractive technology to disinfect microorganisms from aqueous environments because of its ability to degrade microorganisms without producing any harmful by-products. PEC methodology ...
