Leishmania enriettii is a species non-infectious to man, whose reservoir is the guinea pig Cavia porcellus. Many aspects of the parasite-host interaction in this model are unknown, especially those involving parasite surface molecules. While lipophosphoglycans (LPGs) and glycoinositolphospholipids (GIPLs) of Leishmania species from the Old and New World(More)
PURPOSE The objective of this study was to assess the cytokine serum levels of IL-6 and TNF-α in rats subjected to fecal peritonitis and treated with peritoneal lavage with 0.2% ropivacaine by peritoneal lavage. METHODS We subjected 16 Wistar rats to laparotomy 6 hours after the induction of fecal peritonitis with autogenous stool and subsequently divided(More)
Although preeclampsia causes high maternal/fetal morbidity and mortality, the etiology of this multi-system disorder still remains to be elucidated. Herein, we have characterized the cytokine plasma levels in severe preeclamptic women compared to normotensive pregnant and non-pregnant women, aiming to better understand the immunological network and its(More)
Despite the evidences showing the relevance of regulatory immune-mediated mechanisms to guarantee the stable graft function in renal transplanted patients, studies focusing on the immune response observed over a long-term period after renal transplantation are still limited. Several efforts have been done to establish novel biomarkers with relevant(More)
Trypomastigote forms of Trypanosoma cruzi, the causative agent of Chagas Disease, shed extracellular vesicles (EVs) enriched with glycoproteins of the gp85/trans-sialidase (TS) superfamily and other α-galactosyl (α-Gal)-containing glycoconjugates, such as mucins. Here, purified vesicles from T. cruzi strains (Y, Colombiana, CL-14 and YuYu) were quantified(More)
