Evidence for an Association of Human Papillomavirus and Breast Carcinomas
The results suggest that the presence in the breast of either HPV-16 or -18 might be related to development of the malignant phenotype, and the correlation of the viral infection with prognostic factors for the disease outcome was observed. Expand
Effects of low‐level laser therapy (LLLT) on the nuclear factor (NF)‐κB signaling pathway in traumatized muscle
To investigate the effects of low‐level laser therapy (LLLT) on nuclear factor kappa B activation and inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) expression in an experimental model of muscle trauma, a novel low-level laser technique is used. Expand
Low‐level laser therapy (LLLT) prevents oxidative stress and reduces fibrosis in rat traumatized Achilles tendon
The present study investigated the effects of low‐level laser therapy (LLLT) on oxidative stress and fibrosis in an experimental model of Achilles tendon injury induced by a single impact trauma.
Evidence for an association of TP53 codon 72 polymorphism with breast cancer risk.
The TP53 codon 72 polymorphism might be implicated in breast carcinogenesis, with the Arg/Arg genotype being associated with an increased susceptibility for this malignancy. Expand
Role of N-acetylcysteine on fibrosis and oxidative stress in cirrhotic rats.
N-acetylcysteine seams to offer protection against hepatic fibrosis and oxidative stress in cirrhotic rat livers. Expand
MnSOD Gene Polymorphism Association with Steroid-Dependent Cancer
The hypothesis that MnSOD and oxidative stress play a significant role in breast cancer risk both in males and females is supported and new information is brought on the role of this polymorphism in prostate cancer. Expand
Variants of papillary thyroid carcinoma: association with histopathological prognostic factors.
A small percentage of papillary carcinoma cases is represented by variants recognized by their greater potential for aggression, and there are associations between these variants and several other histopathological factors already recognized for their prognostic value, which may influence the outcome of these cases.

Safety of Liver Resections in Obese and Overweight Patients
Obese and overweight patients are at increased risk of potentially life-threatening morbidity after major hepatic resection, and there is no justification for a compromise in the indication or extent of surgery. Expand
Protective effect of allopurinol in the renal ischemia--reperfusion in uninephrectomized rats.
Allopurinol had a strong tendency to exert a beneficial effect during renal ischemia--reperfusion in uninephrectomized rats, and Tubular atrophy and interstitial fibrosis were attenuated by allopur inol when given prior to the surgery. Expand
Ki-67 and p53 correlation prognostic value in squamous cell carcinomas of the oral cavity and tongue.
In oral cavity and tongue epidermoid carcinomas, p53 and Ki-67 are related to larger tumors, metastasis to lymph nodes and very likely to a worse prognosis. Expand
