In vitro cytotoxic activity of Alchornea triplinervia ethyl acetate fraction on murine mammary and lung adenocarcinoma cell lines
(Annual Review of Biomedical Sciences, 2005) [Artigo]
Sodium intake, brain c-Fos protein and gastric emptying in cell-dehydrated rats treated with methysergide into the lateral parabrachial nucleus
(Physiology & Behavior, 2015-11-01) [Artigo]
Previous studies from our laboratory have shown that methysergide, a serotonergic antagonist, injected into the lateral parabrachial nucleus (LPBN) combined with a pre-load of 2 M NaCl, given by gavage, induces 0.3 M NaCl ...
Effect of therapeutic plasma concentrations of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs on the production of reactive oxygen species by activated rat neutrophils
(Brazilian Journal of Medical and Biological Research, 2005-04-01) [Artigo]
The release of reactive oxygen specie (ROS) by activated neutrophil is involved in both the antimicrobial and deleterious effects in chronic inflammation. The objective of the present investigation was to determine the ...
Molecular typing and antifungal susceptibility of clinical sequential isolates of Cryptococcus neoformans from São Paulo State, Brazil
(FEMS Yeast Research, 2007-01-01) [Artigo]
The antifungal susceptibility profiles and the genetic variability of 83 sequential clinical isolates of Cryptococcus neoformans, including four Cryptococcus gattii isolates, obtained from 38 São Paulo AIDS patients with ...
Cryptomoschatone D2 from Cryptocarya mandioccana: cytotoxicity against human cervical carcinoma cell lines
(Revista de Ciências Farmacêuticas Básica e Aplicada, 2009) [Artigo]
Among the substances isolated from Cryptocarya sp, some styrylpyrones, such as goniothalamin, demonstrate antiproliferative activity in a broad range of human cell lines. In the present study, we assessed the cytotoxicity ...
A recombinant enolase-montanide™ petgel a vaccine promotes a protective th1 immune response against a highly virulent sporothrix schenckii by toluene exposure
(Pharmaceutics, 2019-03-01) [Artigo]
The effect of vaccination in fungal strains that suffered changes in their virulence by exposure to environmental contaminants is largely known. Growing reports of resistance to antifungal drugs and the emergence of new ...
Influence of eugenia uniflora extract on adhesion to human buccal epithelial cells, biofilm formation, and cell surface hydrophobicity of candida spp. from the oral cavity of kidney transplant recipients
(Molecules, 2018-09-20) [Artigo]
This study evaluated the influence of the extract of Eugenia uniflora in adhesion to human buccal epithelial cells (HBEC) biofilm formation and cell surface hydrophobicity (CSH) of Candida spp. isolated from the oral cavity ...
Improvement of Pro-Oxidant Capacity of Protocatechuic Acid by Esterification
(Plos One, 2014-10-23) [Artigo]
Pro-oxidant effects of phenolic compounds are usually correlated to the one-electron redox potential of the phenoxyl radicals. Here we demonstrated that, besides their oxidizability, hydrophobicity can also be a decisive ...
Curcumin combined with metformin decreases glycemia and dyslipidemia, and increases paraoxonase activity in diabetic rats
(Diabetology and Metabolic Syndrome, 2019-04-30) [Artigo]
Background: Combination of current antidiabetic agents with natural antioxidants to manage diabetes mellitus and its complications has appeared as an emerging trend. Curcumin, a yellow pigment isolated from Curcuma longa ...
Transcriptomic crosstalk between fungal invasive pathogens and their host cells: Opportunities and challenges for next-generation sequencing methods
(Journal of Fungi, 2016-03-01) [Resenha]
Fungal invasive infections are an increasing health problem. The intrinsic complexity of pathogenic fungi and the unmet clinical need for new and more effective treatments requires a detailed knowledge of the infection ...
