Bacterial infections are a significant cause of morbidity and mortality among critically ill patients. The increase of antibiotic resistance in bacteria from human microbiota—such as Staphylococcus epidermidis, an important nosocomial pathogen that affects immunocompromised patients or those with indwelling devices—increased the desire for new antibiotics.(More)
Tuberculosis treatment remains a challenge that requires new antitubercular agents due to the emergence of multidrug-resistant Mycobacterium strains. This paper describes the synthesis, the antitubercular activity and the theoretical analysis of N-substituted-phenylamino-5-methyl-1H-1,2,3-triazole-4-carbohydrazides (8a-b, 8e-f, 8i-j and 8n-o) and new(More)
Defensins are cysteine-rich peptides involved in the innate immunity of insects and many other organisms. In the present study, two novel defensin-encoding cDNAs and the respective genomic DNAs (def3 and def4) of Triatoma brasiliensis were identified and their tissue-specific and temporal expression was characterized. Both of the deduced mature peptides(More)
Presently, several different graft materials are employed in regenerative or corrective bone surgery. However current misconceptions about these biomaterials, their use and risks may compromise their correct application and development. To unveil these misconceptions, this work briefly reviewed concepts about bone remodeling, grafts classification and(More)
In this paper, we describe the antinociceptive activity, molecular modeling and in silico ADMET screening of a series of sulphonyl-hydrazone and sulphonamide imidobenzene derivatives. Among these compounds, the sulphonyl-hydrazones 9 and 11 showed the most potent analgesic activity (ID(50) = 5.1 and 6.8 μmol/kg, respectively). Interestingly, all derivatives(More)
BACKGROUND Cardiovascular diseases are the most frequent cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Among the most important cardiovascular diseases are atherothrombosis and venous thromboembolism that present platelet aggregation as a key event. Currently, the commercial antiplatelet agents display several undesirable effects, which prompt the search for(More)
Thromboxane synthase (TXAS) is a P450 epoxygenase that synthesizes thromboxane A2 (TXA2), a potent mediator of platelet aggregation, vasoconstriction and bronchoconstriction. This enzyme plays an important role in several human diseases, including myocardial infarction, stroke, septic shock, asthma and cancer. Despite of the increasing interest on(More)
Platelets are cytoplasmatic fragments from bone marrow megakaryocytes present in blood. In this work, we review the basis of platelet mechanisms, their participation in syndromes and in arterial thrombosis, and their potential as a target for designing new antithrombotic agents. The option of new biotechnological sources is also explored.
PURPOSE This work describes the preparation of new nanocomposites based on lamellar silicates (AAM-alkyl ammonium montmorillonite) obtained by the intercalation of PVP K30 and glyceril monostearate. METHODS By XRD, TGA and DSC analysis the AAM was characterized and its compactation characteristics, functionality and toxicity were also tested. The AAM/PVP(More)
Bacterial multiresistance is a health problem worldwide that demands new antimicrobials for treating bacterial-related infections. In this study, we evaluated the antimicrobial activity and the theoretical toxicology profile of N-substituted-phenylamino-5-methyl-1H-1,2,3-triazole-4-carbohydrazide derivatives against gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria(More)
