We investigated the influence of CD40-CD40 ligand-mediated signaling on induction of microbicidal activity against Leishmania major in macrophages from resistant (B6) and susceptible (BALB) mouse strains. CD40 engagement induced leishmanicidal activity in resistant macrophages, but increased parasite replication in susceptible macrophages. CD40 engagement(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of the study was to evaluate, in vitro, the surface roughness of two composite resins submitted to simulated toothbrushing with three different dentifrices. MATERIALS AND METHODS Totally, 36 samples of Z350XT and 36 samples of Empress Direct were built and randomly divided into three groups (n = 12) according to the dentifrice used(More)
This study examined the electrical activity of the superior (SO) and inferior (IO) orbicularis oculi muscles before and after installing ocular prostheses in patients who had undergone unilateral enucleation.
