The object of this study was to analyze the hepatic effects of the herbicide Glyphosate-Biocarb (as commercialized in Brazil) in Wistar rats. Animals were treated orally with water or 4.87, 48.7, or 487 mg/kg of glyphosate each 2 days, during 75 days. Sub-chronic treatment of animals starting from the lowest dose of glyphosate induced the leakage of hepatic(More)
OBJECTIVES To study the clinical, morphological, and immunohistochemical characteristics of vocal polyps. STUDY DESIGN Prospective and retrospective. METHODS Clinical study: 76 medical charts from patients with polyps were reviewed. Histology study: in 42 slides from surgical specimens, the following were analyzed: epithelium, basal membrane, and lamina(More)
AIMS To investigate the prognostic value of expression levels of the genes STEAP1 and STEAP2, and of STEAP1 protein, in prostate carcinomas (PCa). METHODS AND RESULTS STEAP1 and STEAP2 transcript levels were evaluated by RT-qPCR in samples from 35 PCa, 24 adjacent non-neoplastic prostate (AdjP) tissues, five cases of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH),(More)
This study was undertaken to investigate, by immunohistochemistry, the expression of survivin and inducible nitric oxide synthase during 4NQO-induced rat tongue carcinogenesis. Male Wistar rats were distributed into three groups of 10 animals each and treated with 50 ppm 4NQO solution through their drinking water for 4, 12, and 20 weeks. Ten animals were(More)
BACKGROUND Uterine Leiomyomas (ULs) are the most common benign tumours affecting women of reproductive age. ULs represent a major problem in public health, as they are the main indication for hysterectomy. Approximately 40-50% of ULs have non-random cytogenetic abnormalities, and half of ULs may have copy number alterations (CNAs). Gene expression(More)
The promoting activity of the herbicide Diuron was evaluated in a medium-term rat liver carcinogenesis bioassay that uses as endpoint immunohistochemically identified glutathione S-transferase positive (GST-P+) foci. Male Wistar rats were allocated to the following groups: G1 to G6 were initiated for liver carcinogenesis by a single dose of(More)
Despite one third of breast (BC) and colorectal cancer (CRC) cases having a hereditary component, only a small proportion can be explained by germline mutations. The aim of this study was to identify potential genomic alterations related to cancer predisposition. Copy number variations (CNVs) were interrogated in 113 unrelated cases fulfilling the criteria(More)
CONTEXT Interleukins (ILs) 6, 10, and 13 seem to be important in the pathogenesis of Hodgkin lymphoma (HL), but there is insufficient data on the serum levels of these cytokines in patients with HL. OBJECTIVES To evaluate serum levels of IL-6, IL-10, and IL-13 before and after HL treatment and to determine their potential association with clinical and(More)
BACKGROUND Undifferentiated Pleomorphic Sarcoma (UPS) and high-grade Leiomyosarcoma (LMS) are soft tissue tumors with an aggressive clinical behavior, frequently developing local recurrence and distant metastases. Despite several gene expression studies involving soft tissue sarcomas, the potential to identify molecular markers has been limited, mostly due(More)
The objectives of this study were to evaluate morphologic alterations and precancerous lesions in Reinke's edema. Patients included were 54 smokers with bilateral Reinke's edema submitted to surgery in the Otolaryngology Department, Botucatu Medical School, São Paulo State University, Brazil, between 2002 and 2006. All specimens were evaluated by light(More)
