Our aim was to investigate the possible involvement of nitric oxide (NO) in peripheral denervation during the acute phase of murine experimental Trypanosoma cruzi infection. Wistar male rats were infected with the Y strain of T. cruzi. One group of animals was also treated with the NO synthase inhibitor N-nitro-l-arginine. A group of uninfected animals was(More)
BACKGROUND Immunoglobulin (Ig)G replacement with intravenous or subcutaneous immunoglobulins is a lifelong substitutive therapy in patients with primary antibody deficiencies (PADs). Hemolysis after immunoglobulin therapy was described in patients receiving high immunoglobulin dosages. The issue of hemolysis after immunoglobulin administration at(More)
BACKGROUND Gemcitabine and paclitaxel are two of the most active agents in non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC), and pharmacologic investigation of the combination regimens including these drugs may offer a valuable opportunity in treatment optimization. The present study investigates the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of paclitaxel and gemcitabine in(More)
In the present study, we analysed the expression of Fas ligand (FasL) and its cognate receptor Fas in 14 seminomatous testicular germ cell tumours (TGCT) and six normal testicular tissues obtained following orchiectomy. Tissue samples have been processed to prepare either total RNA or protein extracts or fixed and embedded in paraffin for(More)
n-Dodecane and fatty acids were good inducers of cytochrome P450 (CYP) and the ω-hydroxylase of lauric acid, which is a marker for ω-hydroxylation of n-alkanes, in Trichoderma harzianum. A cDNA, containing an ORF of 1520 bp, encoding a CYP52 of 520 amino acids, was isolated by RACE. Another n-alkane-inducible CYP was identified by LLC-MS/MS analysis of a(More)
