Microplate alamarblue assay for paracoccidioides susceptibility testing
(Journal of Clinical Microbiology, 2013-04-01) [Artigo]
CLSI method M27-A3 is not available for use with dimorphic fungi, such as those of the Paracoccidioides genus. In this study, we developed a microdilution method and added the alamarBlue reagent to test the responses of ...
Avaliação do estresse oxidativo no sangue de consumidores habituais de suco de laranja
(Revista de Ciências Farmacêuticas Básica e Aplicada, 2011-11-14) [Artigo]
Two biomarkers of oxidative stress were evaluated in healthy volunteers treated with daily doses of orange juice that is well known source of vitamin C and citric flavanones, which have been associated with antioxidant, ...
Assessment of the chemopreventive effect of casearin B, a clerodane diterpene extracted from Casearia sylvestris (Salicaceae)
(Food and Chemical Toxicology, 2013-03-01) [Artigo]
Studies have shown that Casearia sylvestris compounds protect DNA from damage both in vitro and in vivo. Complementarily, the aim of the present study was to assess the chemopreventive effect of casearin B (CASB) against ...
Oxidative stress in diabetes and periodontitis
(North American Journal of Medical Sciences, 2013-01-01) [Artigo]
Characterization of myeloid or lymphoid acute leukemia by a chemiluminescence assay: Comparison with immunocytochemistry using an antimyeloperoxidase antibody
(Acta Haematologica, 1993-01-01) [Artigo]
A simple and sensitive chemiluminescence assay for the demonstration of the activity of intracellular myeloperoxidase (MPO) is described, which is useful for the distinction between myeloid and lymphoid commitment in blasts ...
In vitro antimicrobial efficiency of a mouthwash containing triclosan/gantrez and sodium bicarbonate
(Brazilian Oral Research, 2007-12-31) [Artigo]
Several antiseptic substances have been used as adjuncts to routine mechanical procedures of oral hygiene, based on their antimicrobial effects. The objective of this study was to assess in vitro the antimicrobial efficiency ...
Quantitative cell-cycle protein expression in oral cancer assessed by computer-assisted system
(Histology and Histopathology, 2006-07-01) [Artigo]
The knowledge of cell-cycle control has shown that the capacity of malignant growth is acquired by the stepwise accumulation of defects in specific genes regulating cell growth. Histologic diagnosis might be improved by a ...
Determination of neutral polymorphisms (frameworks) of the human beta globin gene in beta thalassaemias by PCR/DGGE
(Sangre, 1997-02-01) [Artigo]
Purpose: Considering the importance of type beta thalassaemias as hereditary syndromes of high significance in different populations of Mediterranean origin and, by extension, in the Brazilian population, the objective of ...
Lipid peroxidation and antioxidant capacity of G6PD-deficient patients with A-(202G>A) mutation
(Genetics and Molecular Research, 2009-12-01) [Artigo]
Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency is an enzymopathy in which reduced NADPH concentrations are not maintained, resulting in oxidative damage. We evaluated G6PD activity, oxidative stress levels and Trolox ...
Standardization of platelet parameters determination in blood samples collected with EDTA
(Revista de Ciencias Farmaceuticas, 2003-12-01) [Artigo]
The Abbott Cell-Dyn 3000 automated hematological analyzer prepares a histogram of platelet volume, which is measured by a technique using electrical impedance, inferring from its platelet count (PLT), mean platelet volume ...
