OBJECTIVES Previously, some nitroheteroaryl-1,3,4-thiadiazole derivatives were identified to have potent activity against Leishmania sp. The present aim was to complete the in vitro analysis, thereby investigating the in vivo efficiency of the analogues 15a, 21a and 21b against infected BALB/c mice. METHODS Following parasite inoculation and(More)
Toll-like receptor family (TLRs), pattern recognition receptors, is expressed not only on immune cells but also on non-immune cells, including cardiomyocytes, fibroblasts, and vascular endothelial cells. One main function of TLRs in the non-immune system is to regulate apoptosis. TLRs are the central mediators in hepatic, pulmonary, brain, and renal(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to assess plasma levels of endothelium- and heart-associated microRNAs (miRNAs) miR-126 and miR-499, respectively, using quantitative reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction. METHODS A two-step analysis was conducted on 75 patients undergoing off-pomp coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery. Five biomarkers(More)
The age-related senescence of adult tissues is associated with the decreased level of angiogenic capability and with the development of a degenerative disease such as atherosclerosis which thereafter result in the deteriorating function of multiple systems. Findings indicate that tissue senescence not only diminishes repair processes but also promotes(More)
