Systemic immunotoxicity reactions induced by adjuvanted vaccines
(International Immunopharmacology, 2014-05-01) [Artigo]
Vaccine safety is a topic of concern for the treated individual, the family, the health care personnel, and the others involved in vaccination programs as recipients or providers. Adjuvants are necessary components to ...
Response of Cytokines and Hydrogen Peroxide to Sporothrix schenckii Exoantigen in Systemic Experimental Infection
(Mycopathologia, 2016-04-01) [Artigo]
The response of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and cytokines during an experimental sporotrichosis in male Swiss mice was assessed over a period of 10 weeks by monitoring macrophage activation challenged with exoantigen (ExoAg) ...
Sporothrix schenckii complex biology: environment and fungal pathogenicity
(Microbiology-sgm, 2014-11-01) [Artigo]
Sporothrix schenckii is a complex of various species of fungus found in soils, plants, decaying vegetables and other outdoor environments. It is the aetiological agent of sporotrichosis in humans and several animals. Humans ...
Optimal clearance of Sporothrix schenckii requires an intact Th17 response in a mouse model of systemic infection
(Immunobiology, 2015-08-01) [Artigo]
The discovery of Th17 cells, along with many other Th cell subsets in the recent years, has expanded the Th1/Th2 paradigm that had persisted since its proposition by Mosmann in 1986. Defined by the characteristic expression ...
Involvement of major components from sporothrix schenckii cell wall in the caspase-1 activation, nitric oxide and cytokines production during experimental sporotrichosis
(Mycopathologia, 2015-02-01) [Artigo]
Sporotrichosis is a chronic infection caused by the dimorphic fungus Sporothrix schenckii, involving all layers of skin and the subcutaneous tissue. The role of innate immune toll-like receptors 2 and 4 in the defense ...
