PURPOSE Dry eye syndrome (DES) is characterized by an increase in tear osmolarity and induction of the expression and nuclear localization of an osmoprotective transcription factor (nuclear factor of activated T-cells 5 [NFAT5]) that plays an important role in providing protection against hyperosmotic tears. In this study, we screened medicines already in(More)
Prostaglandin I2 (PGI2) and its analogues (such as beraprost sodium, BPS) are beneficial for the treatment of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). The encapsulation of BPS in nanoparticles to provide sustained release and targeting abilities would improve both the therapeutic effect of BPS on PAH and the quality of life of patients treated with this drug.(More)
OBJECTIVES Due to the low stability of lipid emulsions, a lipid emulsion of prostaglandin E1 (Lipo-PGE1 ) necessitates daily intravenous drip infusions. To overcome this issue, we developed nanoparticles containing PGE1 (Nano-PGE1 ). Nano-PGE1 showed a good sustained-release profile of PGE1 from the nanoparticles in vitro, which may permit a longer-lasting(More)
Human population growth around protected areas increases the contact between wild and domestic animals, promoting disease transmission between them. This study investigates the exposure of free-ranging wild carnivores and domestic dogs to canine distemper virus (CDV) and parvovirus in Emas National Park (ENP) in the Cerrado savanna of central Brazil.
