Cytotoxicity of chlorhexidine digluconate to murine macrophages and its effect on hydrogen peroxide and nitric oxide induction
(Brazilian Journal of Medical and Biological Research, 2004-02-01) [Artigo]
Chlorhexidine, even at low concentrations, is toxic for a variety of eukaryotic cells; however, its effects on host immune cells are not well known. We evaluated in vitro chlorhexidine-induced cytotoxicity and its effects ...

(Revista Brasileira de Ciências Farmacêuticas, 2006-09-01) [Artigo]
A utilização de extratos vegetais vem se tornando uma alternativa importante para a prevenção de doenças periodontais. Este trabalho objetivou desenvolver uma formulação de enxagüatório bucal, contendo, em associação, ...
Interação das enterotoxinas estafilocócicas com o sistema imune do hospedeiro
(Revista de Ciencias Farmaceuticas, 2004-10-14) [Resenha]
Staphylococcal enterotoxins are among the most common etiologic agents that cause food poisoning and, possibly, nonmenstrual toxic shock syndrome. These enterotoxins are also called superantigens because they are potent T ...
Intermediate reactive oxygen and nitrogen from macrophages induced by Brazilian lichens
(Fitoterapia, 2004-07-01) [Artigo]
The activity of ten compounds isolated from Brazilian lichen over the release of hydrogen peroxide and nitric oxide was evaluated in the culture of peritoneal macrophage cells from mice. Salazinic, secalonic A and ...
Water deprivation and the double- depletion hypothesis: common neural mechanisms underlie thirst and salt appetite
(Brazilian Journal of Medical and Biological Research, 2007-05-01) [Artigo]
Water deprivation-induced thirst is explained by the double-depletion hypothesis, which predicts that dehydration of the two major body fluid compartments, the extracellular and intracellular compartments, activates signals ...
Dissociation between the circulating renin-angiotensin system and angiotensin II receptors in central losartan-induced hypertension
(Brazilian Journal of Medical and Biological Research, 2002-09-01) [Artigo]
Losartan, an AT1 angiotensin II (ANG II) receptor non-peptide antagonist, induces an increase in mean arterial pressure (MAP) when injected intracerebroventricularly (icv) into rats. The present study investigated possible ...
