TNF-alpha plays an important role in trypanocidal mechanisms and is related to tissue injury. This cytokine has been detected in the heart of human chagasic patients where it is associated with tissue damage. This study investigated whether TNF-alpha levels and the presence of genetic polymorphisms are associated with the presence of T. cruzi infection(More)
Pre-eclampsia (PE) is a pregnancy-specific multisystemic syndrome characterized by high blood pressure and presence of protein in the urine. The pathogenesis of pre-eclampsia is poorly understood and many factors such as environment, genetic, and immunology may be involved in PE pathophysiology. Among the genetic factors, there is an association between(More)
We report on a 17-year-old patient with midline defects, ocular hypertelorism, neuropsychomotor development delay, neonatal macrosomy, and dental anomalies. DNA copy number investigations using a Whole Genome TilePath array consisting, of 30K BAC/PAC clones showed a 6.36 Mb deletion in the 9p24.1-p24.3 region and a 14.83 Mb duplication in the 20p12.1-p13(More)
A cross-sectional study was carried out in Agua Comprida, MG, Brazil, a region previously endemic to Chagas disease whose vectorial transmission was interrupted around 20 year ago. A total of 998 individuals were examined for anti-Trypanosoma cruzi antibodies. Seropositivity was observed in 255 subjects (25.5%), and 743 subjects were negative. Forty-one(More)
Exposure to certain chemical agents causes damage to the genetic material. There is controversy about the genotoxic and/or mutagenic effect caused by acute or chronic anesthetics exposure. The aim of this research was to assess and compare the frequency of micronuclei (MN) in professionals working in operating rooms and other hospital areas. The genotoxic(More)
Congenital adrenal hyperplasia, one of the most frequent autosome recessive disorders, is caused by defects in steroidogenic enzymes involved in the cortisol biosynthesis. Approximately 95% of the cases are caused by abnormal function of the 21-hydroxylase enzyme. This deficiency leads to androgen excess, consequently, to virilization and rapid somatic(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate the presence of Y-chromosome sequences and determine their frequency in patients with Turner syndrome. METHODS The study included 23 patients with Turner syndrome from Brazil, who gave written informed consent for participating in the study. Cytogenetic analyses were performed in peripheral blood lymphocytes, with 100 metaphases(More)
