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 ...
Paracoccidioides-host interaction: An overview on recent advances in the paracoccidioidomycosis
(Frontiers in Microbiology, 2015-01-01) [Resenha]
Paracoccidioides brasiliensis and P. lutzii are etiologic agents of paracoccidioidomycosis (PCM), an important endemic mycosis in Latin America. During its evolution, these fungi have developed characteristics and mechanisms ...
Highlights in nanocarriers for the treatment against cervical cancer
(Materials Science and Engineering C, 2017-11-01) [Resenha]
Cervical cancer is the second most common malignant tumor in women worldwide and has a high mortality rate, especially when it is associated with human papillomavirus (HPV). In US, an estimated 12,820 cases of invasive ...
Fungal diseases: could nanostructured drug delivery systems be a novel paradigm for therapy?
(International Journal Of Nanomedicine, 2016-01-01) [Resenha]
Invasive mycoses are a major problem for immunocompromised individuals and patients in intensive care units. Morbidity and mortality rates of these infections are high because of late diagnosis and delayed treatment. ...
Protocatechuic Acid Alkyl Esters: Hydrophobicity As a Determinant Factor for Inhibition of NADPH Oxidase
(Current Medicinal Chemistry, 2012-10-01) [Resenha]
This study presents the increased efficiency of NADPH oxidase inhibition produced by esterification of protocatechuic acid (P0). Alkyl esters bearing chain lengths of 4 (P4), 7 (P7) and 10 (P10) carbons were synthesized ...
Could histoplasma capsulatum be related to healthcare-associated infections?
(Biomed Research International, 2015-01-01) [Resenha]
Healthcare-associated infections (HAI) are described in diverse settings. The main etiologic agents of HAI are bacteria (85%) and fungi (13%). Some factors increase the risk for HAI, particularly the use of medical devices; ...
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 ...
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 ...
