The objective of this study was to investigate the possible link between cadmium exposure, hepatic markers of oxidative stress and aggressive behavior in Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus). Fish were first exposed to 0.75 mg/L CdCl2 for 15 days (12 isolated fish for each group) and afterward a behavioral test was performed. Fish from the control and(More)
This study aimed to identify the aerobic capacity enhancement and subsequent body weight (BW) status of obese Zucker rats (OZRs) after 4 weeks of treadmill running exercise at the maximal lactate steady state (MLSS). In addition to obese Zucker rats (OZRs), lean Wistar Kyoto rats (WKYs) were used, and both species were divided into control and exercise(More)
PURPOSE To assess the effects of mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) therapy on T helper cell activation status, using CD69 expression and cytokine profile with flow cytometry in relation to clinical activity in uveitis. METHODS Patients with posterior or intermediate uveitis treated with MMF (n = 10), patients with active uveitis not treated with MMF and(More)
This study aims to identify the maximum lactate steady state (MLSS) in obese rats in order to provide a more effective tool in the exercise training prescription for this important animal model. To make such determination, obese (Zucker, n=5) (390.0±18.8 g) and lean (Wistar, n=5) (227.3±26.2 g) rats were studied. After adaptation of animals to treadmill,(More)
We collected and analyzed 500 samples of human milk, from five Brazilian cities (100 from each) to detect methicillin-resistant strains of Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) producing enterotoxins. We found 57 strains of MRSA, and the mecA gene, responsible for resistance, was detected in all of them using a specific molecular probe. We examined 40 strains for(More)
The dispersion of potentially pathogenic, antibiotic-resistant microorganisms via expressed human milk can be considered a risk factor. The aim of this study was to contribute to a better understanding of coliform isolates from expressed human milk and their antimicrobial resistance profiles. The sampling scheme followed a totally randomized design, using(More)
