The antihyperalgesic properties of the opiate antidiarrheal agent loperamide (ADL 2-1294) were investigated in a variety of inflammatory pain models in rodents. Loperamide exhibited potent affinity and selectivity for the cloned micro (Ki = 3 nM) compared with the delta (Ki = 48 nM) and kappa (Ki = 1156 nM) human opioid receptors. Loperamide potently(More)
AIM To compare oxidative stress in adults with non-complicated malaria and healthy controls. METHODOLOGY We measured malondialdehyde (MDA), total antioxidant status (TAS), catalase, superoxide dismutase (SOD) and glutathione peroxidase (GSH-PX). Oxidative stress was calculated based on MDA/TAS, MDA/GSH-PX and SOD/catalase indexes. RESULTS Mean MDA in(More)
The influence of temperature on Paracoccidioides brasiliensis mycelium to yeast transformation was studied by sequential microscopic observations of slide cultures. When incubated at temperatures above 28 degrees C, the mycelial elements gradually produced round to oval chlamydospores and later on, exhibited multiple budding. A sizeable proportion of(More)
