Several studies have been performed to determine biomarkers that define the risk factors to developing severe forms of dengue. In this study, the levels of TNF-α, IL-6, IL-1, IL-17, soluble interleukin-1 receptor like 1 protein (sST2), soluble TNF-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (sTRAIL), IL-12 and soluble receptors for TNF (sTNF-RI and sTNF-RII) were(More)
BACKGROUND Late apoptotic cells divide into apoptotic bodies and are missed by current detection methods. This results in an artificially low apoptotic index (AI). METHODS This study proposes a flow cytometry-based ratiometric method that uses an internal reference standard of microbeads combined with fluorescein-annexin V binding and 7-aminoactinomycin D(More)
Strenuous physical exercise of the limb muscles commonly results in damage, especially when that exercise is intense, prolonged and includes eccentric contractions. Many factors contribute to exercise-induced muscle injury and the mechanism is likely to differ with the type of exercise. Competitive sports players are highly susceptible to this type of(More)
BACKGROUND Mortality in patients with septic shock remains unacceptably high and the attempts to antagonize certain proinflammatory cytokines based on the results of animal model studies have failed to improve survival rates. The objective of this article is to examine the pro-/anti-inflammatory cytokine balance in patients with septic shock and its(More)
INTRODUCTION The purpose of this work is to present 8 minilaparoscopic-assisted transvaginal appendectomies using rigid instruments in patients with acute appendicitis. MATERIAL AND METHODS Eight minilaparoscopic-assisted transvaginal appendectomies were performed from the 10th of August 2009 to the 30th of June 2010. The inclusion criteria were women(More)
BACKGROUND Vascular endothelium activation is a key pathogenic step in systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS) that can be triggered by both microbial and sterile proinflammatory stimuli. The relevance of soluble adhesion molecules as clinical biomarkers to discriminate between infectious and non-infectious SIRS, and the individual patient prognosis,(More)
We explored the possibility that silymarin (SY), a fraction from Silybum marianum, might protect against the effects of in utero exposure to ethanol upon subsequent social memory function. Three groups of 8 pregnant female Sprague-Dawley rats each were provided with a liquid diet containing 35% ethanol derived calories (EDC). One experimental group received(More)
The aims of this study were to examine the changes in plasma concentrations of inflammatory cytokines induced by training and competition in professional cyclists. We report the serum concentrations of interleukin-6 (IL-6), tumour necrosis factor alpha (TNF-a), tumour necrosis factor receptors I and II (TNFR-I and -II) in a prospective, randomized,(More)
OBJECTIVES Serum prostate specific antigen and digital rectal examination are the tests used as screening tests to detect prostate cancer. However, only approximately 30% of men with suspicion of cancer have it confirmed on prostate biopsy, and not all of these need treatment. Detection of circulating tumor cells in localized prostate cancer has given(More)

Adult rats were exposed to increasing air ethanol concentrations over a 12-day period without the use of pyrazole. Gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase levels were determined from various regions of rat brain. The enzyme levels in the pons-medulla, mid-brain and the striatum increased significantly during the 12-day exposure to ethanol. Other areas of the brain(More)
