Nephrotoxicity is substantial side effect for 30% of patients undergoing cancer therapy with cisplatin and may force them to change or even abandon the treatment. Studies regarding aerobic exercise have shown its efficacy for the treatment of many types of diseases and its capacity to reduce tumors. However, little is known about the impact of physical(More)
A female newborn whose mother was taking propylthiouracil (PTU) for Graves' disease, presented with transient thyrotoxicosis (serum triiodothyronine 1,710 ng/dl) and signs of acute hepatic injury. Jaundice and choluria were evident on her fourth day of life. Serum total bilirubin reached 14 mg/dl, with a direct fraction of 11 mg/dl. Serum alanine(More)
Tubule-interstitial nephritis (TIN) results in decreased renal function and interstitial inflammation, which ultimately leads to fibrosis. Excessive adenine intake can cause TIN because xanthine dehydrogenase (XDH) can convert this purine into an insoluble compound, which precipitates in the tubuli. Innate immune sensors, such as Toll-like receptors (TLR)(More)
Malaria associated-acute kidney injury (AKI) is associated with 45% of mortality in adult patients hospitalized with severe form of the disease. However, the causes that lead to a framework of malaria-associated AKI are still poorly characterized. Some clinical studies speculate that oxidative stress products, a characteristic of Plasmodium infection, as(More)
A morphometrical study of the tumor-free pancreatic regions has been performed in 18 patients with carcinoma of the pancreas, who were divided into three groups, i.e., diabetics, patients exhibiting impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) and normoglycemics. Tissues were stained for A, B, D and PP cells by immunocytochemistry and, for comparative purposes, the(More)
