Considering that nitric oxide (NO) may be involved in anti-tumoral and anti-parasite lectin effects, in this report we investigated whether lectin induces NO production. Lectins from Canavalia brasiliensis, Dioclea grandiflora, Pisum arvense (PAA), and concanavalin A induced murine peritoneal cells to produce NO in vitro. PAA induced similar levels to that(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate serum levels of different biomarkers associated with cardiovascular disease in patients with bipolar disorder (BD). Patients were prospectively evaluated in two separate instances: during acute mania and after remission of manic symptoms. All measurements were compared with those of healthy controls.

Objective: To present the results of a new experimental device developed to facilitate the transapical access in endovascular treatment of structural heart diseases. It aims to reduce the risk of bleeding and complications in this type of access and demonstrate the device as a safe, fast and effective alternative. Methods: CorPoint is composed of three(More)
Randomized clinical trial (RCT) is the best study design for treatment-related issues, yet these studies may present a number of biases and limitations. The objective of this study is to carry out a qualitative analysis of RCT methodology in the treatment of bipolar depression (BD).

UNLABELLED The aim of this study was to investigate the capacity of the host dendrimer DAB-Am-16 as a drug carrier to reduce the time required for the encapsulated naloxonaxine to establish an irreversible covalent bond with μ(1)-opioid receptor (resulting in a pharmacologically selective effect). The efficacy of dendrimer-naloxonazine nanocomplex (DNC) was(More)
