Autoradiography analysis of D1 and D2 dopamine receptors and c-Fos activity were performed in brain of rats classified as low drinkers (LD) and high drinkers (HD) according to schedule-induced polydipsia (SIP) performance. Previous studies have shown that groups selected according to their rate of drinking in SIP differ in behavioral response to(More)
BACKGROUND Autologous fat grafting to the breast for cosmetic and reconstructive purposes is still controversial with respect to its safety and efficacy. The objective of this study was to conduct a systematic review of the clinical applicability and safety of the technique. METHODS An online search of the Cochrane Library, MEDLINE, Embase and SciELO was(More)
Male rats, under certain experimental conditions, may show lordosis, the typical expression of female sexual receptivity. This work studies the sexual morphological pattern of facilitatory and inhibitory structures that control lordosis. Three groups of males were neonatally subjected to a gradient of androgen exposure (castrated plus injected oil(More)
Using the results obtained by the non commutative geometry techniques applied to the Harper equation, we derive the areas distribution of random walks of length N on a two-dimensional square lattice for large N , taking into account finite size contributions. Pacs Numbers : 05.45.+b, 72.15.Qm, 72.10.Bg Let us consider on a square lattice all closed paths of(More)
BACKGROUND Although its unclear oncological risk, which led to more than 20 years of prohibition of its use, fat grafting to the breast is widely used nowadays even for aesthetic purposes. Thus, we proposed an experimental model in rats to analyze the inflammatory activity, cellular proliferation and levels of Plasminogen Activator Inhibitor (PAI-1) in(More)
The nucleotide sequences of the 5S rRNA multigene family and their distribution across the karyotypes in 2 species of Gymnotiformes, genus Gymnotus (G. sylvius and G. inaequilabiatus) were investigated by means of fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH). The results showed the existence of 2 distinct classes of 5S rDNA sequences in both species: class I(More)
Usually, complicated reconstructions demand complex procedures. However, we report an unpublished situation where lipofilling was the only effective procedure for breast reconstruction, once 4 previous procedures, including 2 microvascular free flaps, had failed. The reported case describes a woman without subcutaneous tissue in the left breast topography,(More)
Background The results of experimental studies indicate that grafting of autologous adipose tissue may induce tumorigenesis at the recipient site, but clinical results do not support a carcinogenic effect of fat grafting to the breast. Objectives The authors assessed cancer risk following transplantation of autologous fat into murine mammary tissue. (More)
