Acute schistosomiasis is associated with a primary exposure and is more commonly seen in nonimmune individuals traveling through endemic regions. In this study, we have focused on the cytokine profile of T lymphocytes evaluated in circulating leukocytes of acute Schistosomiasis mansoni-infected patients (ACT group) before and after praziquantel treatment(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)
Pups were subjected to malnutrition by feeding the lactating mothers a multi-deficient (8% protein content) diet, known as regional basic diet (RBD), from birth up to weaning. The weanings were fed the same diet until 60 days of age. Ultrastructure of the optic nerve was analyzed at postnatal (P) day P8, P13, P21, P30 and P60. Electron microscopy revealed(More)
The present study investigated how prenatal protein malnutrition affects the neurogenesis of GABAergic cells in the retina. Rats were treated with a multi-deficient diet, with only 8% of protein that was administered during the gestational and suckling periods. Pregnant mothers and pups from malnourished and control (fed with 22% protein) groups received a(More)
OBJECTIVES to evaluate cannabinoid receptors (CBRs) expression on peripheral immune cells, i.e., blood monocytes, neutrophils, lymphocytes, and NK cells, and their relationship to a wide range of serum cytokine levels in subjects with schizophrenia and controls. METHODS A sample of 55 people with chronic schizophrenia and 48 controls were enrolled in the(More)
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)
Malnutrition by severe protein deprivation induces deleterious consequences in the nervous system particularly in the initial period of development. These deficits can alter several important events during development, such as the expression of neurotransmitters. The induction of nutritional deficiency by using low protein diet, similar to that consumed by(More)
