Cationic lipids have been used in the development of non-viral gene delivery systems as lipoplexes. Stearylamine, a cationic lipid that presents a primary amine group when in solution, is able to compact genetic material by electrostatic interactions. In dispersed systems such as nanoemulsions this lipid anchors on the oil/water interface confering a(More)

The drawbacks related to the use of viral vectors in gene therapy have been stimulated the research in non-viral strategies such as cationic nanoemulsions. The aim of this work was to develop a stearylamine-containing nanoemulsion for gene therapy purpose. The formulation was chosen from a Pseudo-Ternary Phase Diagram and had its long-term stability(More)
In this study we analyzed diet composition, niche breadth and overlap of the two leaf-litter frogs Ischnocnema henselii and Adenomera marmorata. Frogs were collected in an Atlantic Rainforest area in the Reserva Natural Salto Morato, in Paraná State, Southern Brazil, using plots of 16 m2 established on forest floor. Ischnocnema henselii consumed 18(More)
BACKGROUND Amphotericin B eye drops are widely used in the treatment of ocular infections. However, amphotericin's toxicity leads to low patient compliance and aggravation of symptoms. This work describes the development of a microemulsion system containing amphotericin B, aiming for its use in ocular applications. METHODS The microemulsion was developed(More)
