Paracoccidioidomycosis manifesting as oral lesions: clinical, cytological and serological investigation
(Journal of Oral Pathology & Medicine, 1994-02-01) [Artigo]
Paracoccidioidomycosis (South American blastomycosis) is a systemic mycosis which can be associated with oral lesions. This study on a group of 14 patients showed oral lesions mainly on the gingival or alveolar mucosa, ...
Monitoring scaling and dental calculus removal with an optical fluorescence system
(Laser Physics, 2014-08-01) [Artigo]
Fluorescence results from a process that occurs under certain conditions in molecules known as fluorophores, fluorochromes or fluorescent dyes when they absorb light. The molecule is excited to a higher energy state and ...
Antimicrobial Properties and Cytotoxicity of an Antimicrobial Monomer for Application in Prosthodontics
(Journal of Prosthodontics-implant Esthetic and Reconstructive Dentistry, 2012-06-01) [Artigo]
Purpose: This study aimed to investigate the antimicrobial properties and cytotoxicity of the monomer methacryloyloxyundecylpyridinium bromide (MUPB), an antiseptic agent capable of copolymerizing with denture base acrylic ...
Role of serotonergic 5-HT1A and oxytocinergic receptors of the lateral septal area in sodium intake regulation
(Behavioural Brain Research, 2010-06-19) [Artigo]
Several reports have revealed a high density of 5-HT1A receptors in the lateral septal area (LSA), as well as a subpopulation of oxytocin (OT) receptors. Increasing evidence shows that 5-HT1A and OT neurons inhibit sodium ...
Vasopressin and angiotensin receptors of the medial septal area of the brain in the control of thirst and salt appetite induced by vasopressin in water-deprived and sodium-depleted rats

Medial septal area ANG II receptor subtypes in the regulation of urine and sodium excretion induced by vasopressin
(Journal of The Renin-angiotensin-aldosterone System, 2011-03-01) [Artigo]
Introduction. The present study was designed to determine the effects of selective antagonists of angiotensin II receptor types AT(1) and AT(2) on the flow of urine and sodium excretion induced by arginine vasopressin ...
Damage to the central amygdala produces differential encephalic c-fos expression in the water deprivation-partial rehydration protocol
(Brain Research, 2009-12-04) [Artigo]
We investigated the effects of electrolytic damage to the central nucleus of the amygdala on brain c-fos expression and 0.3 M NaCl intake of adult male rats (n=6-12/group) submitted to a cycle of 36 h of water deprivation ...
