Regarding the importance of interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma) in protective immunity against Mycobacterium tuberculosis and the functional role of IFNG +874T/A single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) in the IFN-gamma production, the present study investigated the relationship of this genetic polymorphism with susceptibility to tuberculosis (TB). A total of 129(More)
The present study investigated the prevalence of the polymorphisms in the exon 1 of the MBL2 gene in patients with tuberculosis at a hospital in northern Brazil, which is a regional reference for the treatment of the disease. The study group was composed of 167 patients with tuberculosis, 34 of which had the extra-pulmonary form of the disease, while the(More)
In this work, we propose a compilation strategy for non-strict functional languages targeting the Microsoft .NET Platform, a multilanguage platform which provides a large number of services to aid current software development. This strategy is based on the push/enter execution model, enables fast function calling mechanisms whenever possible and males use(More)
OBJECTIVES Cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzyme polymorphisms seem to significantly influence the variability of the responses to certain antiretroviral drugs and their toxicity levels. The objective of this study was to evaluate the influence of the CYP2B6 G516T polymorphism on hepatic, renal, immunological, and viral marker changes in HIV-1-positive patients(More)
The present study investigated the frequencies of rs1800450 (MBL ⁎B, G>A), rs1800451 (MBL ⁎C, G>A), and rs5030737 (MBL ⁎D, C>T) polymorphisms in exon 1 of the MBL2 gene among patients with chronic viral hepatitis. Blood samples from patients infected with hepatitis B virus (HBV; n = 65), hepatitis C virus (HCV; n = 92), and a noninfected control group (n =(More)
