Cytotoxicity of doxorubicin-loaded PLGA and PLGA-PEI nanoparticles: relevance for anti-tumor effects and cardiotoxicity
(European Journal Of Clinical Investigation, 2018-06-01) [Resumo]
Application of aqueous two-phase micellar system to improve extraction of adenoviral particles from cell lysate
(Biotechnology And Applied Biochemistry, 2018-05-01) [Artigo]
Viral vectors are important in medical approaches, such as disease prevention and gene therapy, and their production depends on efficient prepurification steps. In the present study, an aqueous two-phase micellar system ...
A perspective of mitochondrial dysfunction in rats treated with silver and titanium nanoparticles (AgNPs and TiNPs)
(Journal of Trace Elements in Medicine and Biology, 2018-05-01) [Artigo]
Nanotechnology is a growing branch of science that deals with the development of structural features bearing at least one dimension in the nano range. More specifically, nanomaterials are defined as objects with dimensions ...
A synthetic snake-venom-based tripeptide (Glu-Val-Trp) protects PC12 cells from MPP+ toxicity by activating the NGF-signaling pathway
(Peptides, 2018-06-01) [Artigo]
Venom small peptides that target neurotrophin receptors might be beneficial in neurodegeneration, including Parkinsons disease (PD). Their small size, ease of synthesis, structural stability and target selectivity make ...
Nitric oxide alterations in cardiovascular system of rats with Parkinsonism induced by 6-OHDA and submitted to previous exercise
(Life Sciences, 2018-07-01) [Artigo]
Studies showed that physical exercise decreases the risk of developing Parkinson's disease (PD) as slowing its progression. Nitric oxide (NO) increases in the substantia nigra pars compacta (SNpc) of individuals with PD. ...
Natural membranes of Hevea brasiliensis latex as delivery system for Casearia sylvestris leaf components
(Revista Brasileira De Farmacognosia-brazilian Journal Of Pharmacognosy, 2018-01-01) [Artigo]
Natural latex from Hevea brasiliensis (Wild. ex A.Juss) Miill.Arg., Euphorbiaceae, showed angiogenic action and Casearia sylvestris Sw., Salicaceae, leaf derivatives presented anti-inflammatory and wound healing activities. ...
Electrochemical treatment of Produced Water using Ti/Pt and BDD anode
(International Journal Of Electrochemical Science, 2018-08-01) [Artigo]
The applicability of electrochemical oxidation (EO) to treat a real petrochemical effluent was investigated using a lab electrochemical cell and pre-pilot plant scale reactor with Ti/Pt and BDD anode materials. The efficacy ...
New Electrochemical Flow-Cell Configuration Integrated into a Three-Dimensional Microfluidic Platform: Improving Analytical Application in the Presence of Air Bubbles
(Analytical Chemistry, 2018-09-18) [Artigo]
A newly configured electrochemical flow cell to be used for (end-channel) amperometric detection in a microfluidic device is presented. The design was assembled to place the reference electrode in a separated compartment, ...
Simultaneous degradation of hexazinone and diuron using ZrO2-nanostructured gas diffusion electrode
(Chemical Engineering Journal, 2018-11-01) [Artigo]
Although several authors have reported the treatment of diuron in wastewater by advanced oxidative processes (AOPs), only a handful of investigations reported using commercial herbicides composed of a mixture of active ...
